Blocker The Dog

His Beloved Kitty

Blocker would bathe Potting Soil, our 22-year cat, every day. There’s a 2 minute clip of the action below.

About Potting Soil…

Potting Soil was a tortoiseshell female that was 22 years old when she was taken from my front porch. She was as active as she was when she was a kitten. So the person who took her, catnapped her, as it were, thought she was ill or malnutritioned, not realizing she was just old. We never saw her again. She loved to walk out to greet the folks pushing strollers down the sidewalk. Her social bent did her in. It was July, and she probably died of thirst, as her kidneys were, well, 22 years old.

The woman who took her, bless her heart, saw my signs and eventually called to tell me and apologize for taking her (Potty escaped from her arms 5 blocks away.) She was spotted a few times in the surrounding areas, trying to find her way back home, but, alas, it never happened. Her kitty friend, Doodah, also 22 years old, had passed months before, and Blocker really missed them both. Now they’re together again, at last. Wash her good, Block, wash her real good.
