Jack's feeling better...but really grumpy

Well, this is just great. I'm eating kibbles again. I'm drinking. I'm peeing. I'm PLAYING! Right in FRONT of her! I'm feeling better, and she STILL took me to the V-E-T!

They stole my bloods. They stole my pees. They stuck things WHERE THEY DON'T BELONG!

And then they gave me a bad furcut!

Now I'm going to look all dorky in my Christmas photos, while I open all the presents my OTW had BETTER BE GIVING ME!!!!

I mean, LOOK at this!!!!

Maybe I can hide it by wearing this lei.

In good news...I'm feeling better! Wow, catblogosphere purrs work FAST! A few hours after Persephone posted asking for purrs I got up and ate some more gooshy foods, and then some kibbles, then hopped up on the desk for some lovins, and then I saw Scissors and decided to invite him to play, and we played Whack-A-Rat under the footstool for a while. And later I peed.

And this morning when my OTW got up I hopped up on the counter while she combed her headfurs, and demanded she do me next, and after her shower, I drank water from the bathtub edge.

And then she scooped me up and shoved me in a PTU and took me out in the COLD anyway! Seriously! It was FREEZING OUT THERE, WOMAN!!!! The car said it was -24!!! (that's -11 to you Americats). I nearly froze my tail off in the squillion miles walk to the car!

And what did Dr Tara say? That I'm FINE! She can't find anything wrong with me physically. That's what I said to my OTW! And I didn't need to steal my bloods and my pees and stick things WHERE THEY DON'T BELONG, and give myself a bad furcut, to say it!

My OTW and Dr Tara think maybe it was just the infection after all, and I was just feeling a little under the weather as it cleared up, since she didn't find any evidence of a full bladder or blockage or fever or anything.

Dr Tara sent my bloods and pees away to a lab, who I guess will sniff it over, though what a D-O-G would know about it, I don't know. But it'll be sniffing it until Saturday, when Dr Tara will call and let my OTW know what it found.

I'm going to hide here under the chair.

Don't look at me, OTW. And stop taking my picture, I look stupid.

My Gotcha-versary

Sunday was my 2nd Gotcha-versary!!! Mommy didn't forget it, she's just been busy with a super-secret-special project, but I got lots of extra pets and scritches and treats!

I didn't get any presents, 'cause mommy says Christmas is soon, and I get presents on Christmas and my birthday same as Jack, who doesn't have a gotcha-versary, 'cause he was borned under mommy's couch and grew up in her closet and he always had her.

I did get some new friends a couple weeks ago, though! Meet Rock, Paper and Scissors, sitting with Lily for a group photo!

Rock, Paper and Scissors are FUN! Here I am playing Whack-a-Rat with Paper!

And here's Scissors and me going for a 'walk'!

What mommy? What is Rock doing down here on the chair with me? Nothing! We're just having a 'chat'!

Mommy says Rock Paper and Scissors came from Eye-Key-Ahhhh. She thinks other cats might really like some of their brothers and sisters, and the Gotcha-fees are almost no moneys at all! I guess they REALLY want to find homes for all the little ratties!

But there's some bad news. I'm hoping you all can spare a few purrs for my brother Jack. He's not feeling very well, and mommy's taking him back to the V-E-T tomorrow.

He was doing better after the yucky pills, but it looks like the infection might not have been gone, just hiding. All he wants to do is nap ALL the time, and he won't eat his kibbles, or drink much water or pee much. Mommy's giving us extra gooshy foods and extra water in it for him and he'll eat that, at least. Mommy says he might have a stone in his tummy, but I don't think so. Jack is very smart and wouldn't eat rocks.

He's feeling a little better right now and playing with Scissors a bit, and ate a few kibbles, but mommy's gonna take him to Dr Tara anyway.

Lookit!!! We got PRIZES!!!!

I think this is the one with the nip!!!

YUM!!!! Treats! Even Jack likes them and they're FISHES flavoured!!!

Uh oh! That nip toy is up to no goods!!!!

GOTCHA!!!! Attack MY mommy, will you?!?!? I'll show you!

I like this blanket, too! (It smells a bit like nip!)

It's very comfy!

I mean REALLY comfy!

Jack likes it too!

But Jack really likes the toy thing!

Especially the FEV-VERS!!!

I don't think they're going to last long.....

We won these in the Halloween Floof Costume Contest! Thank you Stryder, Scotchy and Sugar and your Meowmy!

PS. from Jack:
I took my last pill yesterday. I was mostly good, 'cause actually, all the attention was great, and I've even got her running to pay attention to me at the least little mow, but I was getting a bit uncomfortable and kinda thirsty. I DID spit out the pills as many times as I could when she gave them to me, but that's just the principle of the thing, really. I threw them up twice, too, but that wasn't such a bad thing, 'cause once that hairball that's been bothering me for a while came out too! So I guess it was ok.

But I'm NEVER TAKING THOSE PILLS AGAIN!!! They upset my tummy.

PPS. KC I would love it if you came over and snuggled. I think I'm feeling weak and...stuff, again. PURRRRRRRRRRRR!

PPPS from the OTW:
He's peeing again, not quite as much as usual. I'm going to give him the weekend to let his tummy settle and see if he gets better. If not, I may talk to them about testing again or trying something different, in case it's a stone. He had a small one a few years ago, and the first test came back the same as this time; infection, no crystals.

Also, he was taking Zeniquin, which he's never had before, and it really did seem to upset his stomach a bit. He NEVER throws up, even hairballs. Every time I gave them to him, he'd start getting restless about half an hour after he took it, and not be able to settle for long for hours after. And was actually cranky about TUMMYRUBS!!!!! Anyone else have this trouble with this stuff, that they know of? I'm going to talk to the vet techs on Monday about it so I have a note on his file not to give it to him again, but I'm curious about other cat's experience.

I win!!! I win!!!

I win!!! I WIN!!!!

I defeated the humans in the constant leaving-of-the-pussycats game!

In honour of my triumph, I made my OTW take pictures of my prize from the first live bird I ever caught!

The OTW made me give it back to her roommate though....

How did I defeat my humans, you ask? How did I keep the perpetually-wandering-off hairless pink monkey from being distracted and straying off? How did I manage this brilliant feat of outsmarting my personal wench and her minion?

Simple, really (well it WOULD be, wouldn't it? They're human and gullible about us).

I stopped peeing. Or stopped peeing much, anyway.

And I stopped drinking from the tap whenever my OTW had to use the human litterbox.

And I meowed. A LOT!

I had her in such a state after a few days because I have a history of pee problems, she insisted we had to take me to the vet, right before they went away AGAIN!

I even freaked her out by being quiet the whole way there!

Oh, the lengths I go to! I had to go to the vet (but I like her, and she has nice new people working there) and I even had to STAY there without my personal servant for hours. And they stole my pees...

But it worked!!! They told her I had no crystals, but I had a slight infection that often happens before pee problems start, and now she has to stay home and not stress me out by leaving AGAIN, and to give me my pills because she doesn't have a catsitter who can do it, 'cause the man who came in to feed us when they were gone the last time for EIGHT WHOLE DAYS likes cats but he's never been owned by one and can't pill a cat.

So I WON!!!!! She has to stay home with me and cuddle me and scritch me and rub my tummy and make laps for me and let me snuggle into the warms between her legs at night and play with me and give me treats and pills, and....

Hey, wait a minite! Pills? PILLS? PILLS?

NO PILLS!!! NO PILLS, WENCH!!! Don't you come near me with that thing!!! I'm on to you!

Man-cat Monday

Oh, the weather outside is frightful....

Blech! Evil White Stuff! Look at it all!

But I'm a tough man-cat! I braved the cold and snow!

Look! I WALKED on it!!! I DID!!!!

It was so cold, the Evil White Stuff didn't even melt off my furs right away!

Persephone wasn't quite so brave. She stuck her nose out and felt the cold on her ears and went nuh-uh.

This was as far as she got. Two paws out, one moved to see if there was a better spot, then she shifted all her squishy body back on her butt and pulled her paws in behind her.

I'm NOT Squishy!!! ::whap!::

Weekend PersePHONY Report

It's time for another Weekend PersePHONY Report!

Check this out! The Mommy-person had the Daddy-person put up this shelf here for the little Goody-Four-Paws to sit on while she worked. See what I discovered?

I can reach up the back and investimigate the NIP shelf!

Hey! I can even get all the way up here!!

How YOU doin'?

Wait! Is that yoghurt the Mommy-person has?


Uh oh!!! Busted!

Heh! Little Mister Mommy's-Little-Mancat got in trouble too.....

The Mighty Hunter Mancat waits in hiding for his prey....

Shhhhhh! I think I hear a wild Human Finger approaching.

There! Look! It's there! Be very quiet. I'm gonna pounce!

Ha! Got it! Crikey! Lookit the size of that thing!!!


The OTW actually got around to submitting us for the Bad Kitty Cats Festival of Chaos at Mind of Mog! AND the Carnival of the Cats at Artsy Catsy!

Mancat Monday

The Mancatagement would like to make it clear that just because you were on 'vacation' does not mean you are not responsible for all scritches and cuddles that would normally have been provided during the period of said 'vacation'.

No, I don't care that you were about to go shower. Make with the cuddling, wench.

Finally Friday!, the OTW's home!!!! PURRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!

She brought us presents, but we're not sure about these...and she brought something else with them. Or rather, someCAT else...

This is Lily. She's a House Panther like us! I think I met her before, long ago, but she's been living with my OTW's mom!

We like her. Welcome to the family, Lily!


Hi Lily! Let us just rub our scent all over you so you know you're one of us.

Worst Wednesday EVER

This is the Worst Wednesday! Look! Evil White Stuff!

And the and Mommy and Daddy went. AGAIN. This time they're even going so long they have someone coming in to check on us and give us more foods!

Even being CUTE didn't work!

I'd suggest trashing the house again, but they LEFT it trashed! There's bookcases all over the living room and bins in the hall, and shelves and boxes stacked in the play-with-the-OTW's-stuff room!

I think we're headed to Hendrix's to trash HIS place, when his people abandon him!

I'm giving mommy the 'tocks of disrespect!
