Hell Froze Over??????

It's Friday and we're posting? Did hell freeze over?


BUSTER: Mama, why do you show this photo to my friends?

MAMA: You are so cute here sweetheart.

We've been busy all week long and it looks like mama may be getting a new job in early September so I'm taking advantage of her presence here in the house all day long, because (hopefully, knock on wood, no jinxing) she will be working full time again very soon.

Mancat Monday

It's Monday again.

For a bit of news: my mama is in trouble with the vet. I gained weight! The exact opposite of what the vet asked mama to do. To NOT feed me. Specifically absolutely NO dry food, according to the vet. I'm pretty sure that's not even LEGAL. Anyway, I have been very obstinate and would not touch my wet food if there is no dry food to go with it.

The dosage for my insulin has been reduced and the vet seem to think that now it's the right dosage.

I cannot promise you that I would not ask for dry food, or eat my wet food. What I can promise you all is that I will continue to make this a tough time for the mama. I have a master's degree in begging and being a pest.

Thankful Thursday

One minute I was big wide awake eyes and ready to pawty.

The next 2 seconds, I was this.

I am thankful I don't need the assistance of medical enhancement to get a good night/day's sleep.

As you are reading this, I am spending the day at the vets. Hoping for a positive result at the end of the day.

Tuesday Trifecta

Our mom is such a pawparazzi. For today, we share photos she took over the spring of a sweet black and white kitty who was taking a baff. Mom is quite far away, so the kitty was not disturbed.

A little update or non-update:

I have another vet appointment this Thursday to check if my glucose levels are stabilizing with new dosage of insulin. I hope that this is it. My human notices that I have more "life" and energy. As a matter of fact, the mama has broken up a slaping fight between me and my sisfur a couple of times in the past week. Also, I have returned to my old routine of meowing until I get let out to the garage, where I usually do my exploring.

You see the past couple of months I was lethargic and want nothing else to do but sleep. Now I go around the house again and be keep mom on her toes doing my bidding. One cannot have enough play time and brushie time you know.

So I hope I get good news this week from the vet. Purrs needed.

This is Panther. We have shown him here before here, here, here and here.

He comes over already fixed, so we know someone from the neighborhood is feeding him. He's ever present for dinner, sometimes he gets an early bird dinner, a proper dinner and a post dinner snack from our humans.

He is our friendly stray in the front yard and you'd hear him meow to let us all know he's waiting for his meal. And the nerve of him, he has to cuddle with both our humans!

Panther is thankful for the people who feeds him in this neighborhood.

Today we are thankful to the human lady who got us off the street (shelter to be exact) and gave us a wonderful forever home and humans. We pay tribute to her birfday today. Happy happy birthday dear catmama. We love you. We give you a pass today; the dad can scoop the box.

Hello all!

Mama was on the phone with the tech support gal and was very busy getting some help; but I was very hungry and so I meowed like the house is on fire. Even the tech dudette could hear me and has to excuse mama a few times to get me to calm down. How can you calm down? I hadn't eaten in an hour, so I was famished. I know the vet said limit my food intake, but what does she know about my stomach?

I wouldn't stop so mama had to give me a "little snack" while talking to the tech gal. Not content with that, I insisted the mama give me brushies while she talks and checks the computer at the same time.

When the call ended, I was these two photos. Mama said I looked like an angel; whereas I was a difficult boy just minutes before. I don't care what the house needs, or if the internet is not working. My needs always come first.

While my human is still taking photos of us, mostly while we're snoozing or about to, it's not as much as she used to before. That's what I'm thankful for today. There's less intrusion of nap times with snapping photos.

Hi, I'm a pretty kitty from Aswan Low Dam in Egypt. I live in an island where the famous Temple in Philae has been relocated. I gave permission to Emma and Buster's human to share my selfie today.

You are looking at royalty here kitties. And you are welcome :)

Look now, who's a copycat!

A little update about me:

I've gotten two increases in my insulin dosage since I have been first diagnosed with diabetes. We all are hoping that this new dosage will be the correct one that will stabilize my glucose level. I'm pretty much okay, except that my mobility has been limited terribly. Jumping to mom's bed is my favorite thing to do, and I cannot do that anymore, well at least for now. My mama is optimistic that someday I will regain the strength in my hind legs. However, the vet is not as optimistic just yet. She said we can tell once my levels have stabilized, not until then. So we are still trying out this increased dosage and will get back to the vet in 2 weeks. Paws crossed.

In the meantime, the humans are making sure that they follow all the doctor's order. I am getting all the love I can from the humans and from all of you. I have a good attitude about all these things so far. Keep the purrs coming.

I am thankful for all the support -

I knew something was wrong when my brofur stopped chasing me all over the house. So I tried to play tag and chase with him. I got yelled at by the woman. I hope my brofur can get the strength in his hind legs back and the dosage of his insulin is the right one. I know I don't show it much, but I love my brofur and even though I screeched like someone's getting murdered when we play chase, I really enjoy our play time. Send some purrs to brofur, okay? Fanks.

Normally, Thankful posts are for Emma. For today, our Buster is front and center. We have recently found that Buster has diabetes. The vet has put him on insulin injection. He will return in a couple of weeks to see if the dosage needs adjustment. We are thankful that we were able to catch it. We are grateful that not only has he lost a few pounds in the last two years, but his transition to wet food is going well. On top of all of these, Buster is loving his diabetetic high protein canned food.

In addition, he's very cooperative with his injections.

My favorite spot at the back of the couch in the family room. My other favorite spot is the back of the couch in the living room. Do you follow the trend here?

We are always thankful for the warmth of a human's lap. My human is thankful that I provided her just the right amount of heat she needed (her words). Win-win situation.

Pee ess: Purrs for success in mama's job interview today. We like her to have a job again, even though we will miss having a servant on duty 24/7.
