Tortilla caught eating laundry detergent

I am sad to announce that Chateau de Ghetto has lost one of their own. After a week of being shuttled from the veterinarian to an animal hospital in Brooklyn and from that hospital to another another one in Manhattan, today we had to put our cat Tortilla to sleep. He was 14 years old.

I cannot say that Tortilla and I had the easiest relationship. On top of not liking my cats (foisted upon him), he was aggressive, mean-spirited and not terribly bright (the above photograph was taken two years ago when I caught him eating laundry detergent). But he was our “meathead” and he will be very missed. Even by me.

  2. Hi Guys,
    We are so sorry about Tor. We have known him since he was a little kitten. Difficult, yes, but there was also something very endearing about him. Hard to lose a member of the family. Love, Mom and Dad

  4. Ms Heather, being a fellow pet owner and animal lover, I am sorry for your loss. I know he will be missed.

    (laundry detergent? he really ate laundry detergent?! That’s hysterical!)

  10. I saw the comments from your mother-in-law. I have to say, when your family starts reading your blog, then you know that you have indeed achieved something.
