All about Rothy
Unfortunately the following two scenarios occur from time to time: You’re innocently petting your cat or dog when all of a sudden your pet bites you. The same reaction can happen when you pick up your cat or dog the way you always do, when all of a sudden it bites you. What is going on here? Your pet NEVER bites you, and now that you are trying to show it some love, it bites you. Has your pet gone mad? What might be going on here is pain induced aggression.
It seems so obvious after you bring your pet to a veterinarian to figure out what is going on, but it may be as simple as pain induced aggression. Pain induced aggression means that your pet has exhibited an aggressive behaviour because it is in pain. This is especially common in older pets that may be suffering from arthritis or perhaps one of their internal organs is bruised or diseased.

This is my memorial for Rothy who I last saw the night of Saturday, October 19, 2002. He fell asleep on my chest that night. He went out to play in the back field the morning of October 24th and never came home.
I don't know if he's still alive or if he's dead but I miss him more than anything.
He was adopted by a friend I was living with on June 16, 2000 and lived with me in Ottawa until October of that year when he went to live at my parents' place in Munster.
He loved being an indoor/outdoor cat. Some nights I would go out and sit in the long grass and wait for him to come home. Sometimes I'd be out there searching for him past 2am.
He had a strange cute habit of suckling on people's earlobes, if they'd let him. I geuss he though he was still a kitten.
Little Rothy angel, wherever you are....I hope that you're happy and free of pain....I know someday that I'll see you again......
I love you Rothy!
