Thankful Thursday

Thank you all for your prayers and purrs and good thoughts for my mom's cat, Sir Moose-a-lot Goodyear Roadkill Thunderbottom, who had surgery on Monday. He is doing really well!

Turn out the light and leave, there'll be no hand washing here today.
(wish I'd asked for a new picture of him! but here he is in his old round shape)

He had managed to gain back some weight before surgery thanks to his antibiotic and appetite stimulator putting him at 12 pounds!

We were worried that the lump in his mouth/jaw might be a tumor, might be cancer, might be something awful, but hoping it was just a tooth. Even that would not be very nice, but better than the alternatives. With his age and condition, we were also worried about just going in for surgery. My mom said he's only around 11, which isn't terribly old but does put him in the senior category.

Moosey came through the surgery well though! And the lump was the gum pockets around two broken teeth, all swelled up and over the breaks. It's possible someone may have kicked him. And it's possible that this could have happened before my mom got him when he was running around the cemetery near my sisters house, or on his recent jaunts. Or who knows really, how they broke, but they were. The doctor removed those broken teeth and some of the overgrown gum tissue as well as his remaining top fang because it was pocked full of cavities. Poor kitty! He has his bottom fangs still, and other side teeth, so he's not down to just gums yet!

And the really good news, he's already eating like a... well like a moose! He wasn't allowed to have anything until 7pm after his surgery and he was NOT happy about it! He bugged my mom, telling her over and over that his dishes were empty, darn it! FEED ME! But she stuck to her guns. And then he found some dropped dry food behind his empty food dish! Seriously, how did he even want that with a sore jaw? Oh yeah, he was on pain killers and antibiotics, feeling no pain!

And acting like a goof! She said he was pouncing around the kitchen like a little nut! I don't think he's felt good enough to play in a while so it was good to hear that he's all feisty and fun again! Of course, he might just be high on pain killers, but we'll take it!

And now that he's back on food, he's even happily eating his hard food which he loves and had to give up for the pain. And he still has lots of canned goodness and those bisques and chowders and gravies that we started him on when he started having trouble eating. He's one happy kitty on his way back to being fat and happy! (hopefully not back to 25 pounds though hee hee)

Thank you all again, for the good wishes! We're so thankful mom's boy is on the mend!!

Mancat Monday

Can you see me? I's hidin'!

Mommy was home for the weekend and I stoled her blankeys! Whoop, still hiding, pay no attention to the ears behind the sheet!

Ok, ok, you found me. It's me! Leo!

I've got the idea in my head that if I stay curled up under here, keeping her toesies warm, and blankets trapped, that she can't go back for more of that therapy junk!

I know it will work! Plus, it's a great place to hide from my sissies! And to ambush them from. Shhh! I think I hear one of them coming now...

Glitter: Eeek! There's something moving under the blankets!!
Leo: Boo! Bwahahaha!

That'll teach ya to try to steal my mommy! Thrrrrrp!
hee hee, my job is done, now I can go nap on her chest so she can't get up!

Just in case you missed it, here's a close up of that face in the last picture, caught him with his tongue out!
Again, I say Thrrrrrrrrp!

Yes, I'm coming home for good! When? Last Friday, but that got moved, now it's supposed to be this coming Friday.. I guess we'll see. I know three kitties who will be very happy when that day comes, not to mention I'll be thrilled too! Yeesh!
Thank you all for your patience with my limited posting and commenting while rehabbing my crappy legs, we'll be back to some kind of a schedule soon I hope! Love you all!


Remember my mom's cat, Sir Moose-a-lot Goodyear Roadkill Thunderbottom? He's around 25 pounds in this picture. He's now about 11 pounds but hopefully on his way back up. Just a little up! Not back to 25 again!

Today, Monday, Moose is going to have dental surgery. They think he has a broken tooth that his gums grew over. Obviously very painful thus the drop in weight. (he's been dropping a bit over the past years anyway, but at the vet for another issues a few months ago was found to be 13 pounds, the tooth or abscess or whatever is going on in his mouth cost him another two in a few months.)

He has not been eating well because of the pain but we're finding things he can handle without too much trouble. I'd never head of the bisque cat food until Angel over at Daily Dose/Winnie's Wish started having trouble eating. And boy does Moose like those too! He can lick them up without chewing. Let's face it, 25 pounds was a bit much, but no one wants a skinny Moose! ;)

If you could, please send some purrs or prayers for sweet Moosey today that they can take care of whatever the problem is without too much trouble. We need him to stick around for a good long time!
Thank you!

Almost Wordless Wednesday

Daddy is sick. Again... But this time he finally went to the doctor! Nurse Leo is on the job, making sure daddy gets a little exercise by making him give scritches and by keeping him warm by sitting on him. I'm sure he'll be well in no time! (And then mommy will kill him for stealing her baby boy because HERS is the only lap he's supposed to sit on!)

Leo: That's right, between the ears, first the back of the hand rub, then..

Leo: right side of the hand, finger scritches.. Awesome work today. Keep repeating. And if mommy keeps complaining, then she should get her butt home so I can lay on her again!

Ok, Leo. You made your point. Thank you for helping with daddy. And get your fuzzy buns ready, because it wont be long now and I will be home! And I expect snuggles!

Ok, to tell the truth, I have been able to go home for the weekend for the last few weeks. They call it 'vacation'... um, ok sure. Anyway, it's all in preparation for going home permanently next month, yay!!!! CANT WAIT! The girls forgave me for being gone within minutes of arrival! Leo made me wait two hours the first weekend, and half an hour the next. Little brat boy!


For those of you who donated to pretty kitty Angel's surgery, she had it Tuesday! The results weren't conclusive, but thankfully ruled out some really bad things. Please read about it on Tuesday's Daily Dose Post. I have not forgotten your gifts for donations to her surgery! I just forgot to bring the mail pouches with me so I can't get them out until the weekend, I'm sorry!
If anyone still wants to donate to the surgery it would sure be appreciated! And I will send you a small, but cute, thank you gift! Just use the donate button on my site, or on the Daily Dose site and note that it's for Angel!

A Story Told In Four Particularly Blurry Photos

The tale being told is too cute to pass up regardless of the blurry low light crappy cell phone pictures sent from daddy's new crappy cell phone. Of course, moving kitties did not help in the blur department.

Opening Salvo: Leo sits, guarding the chirpy cricket toy. Or the cow kicker. Or both.
Leo: These are mine! None shall touch! Mwahahaha!

Part The Second: Glitter checks to see if it's safe to come out and snatch a toy for herself. A different toy.. not the sasial mouse. Or any of the ones in the box next to her. A chirpy one perhaps.
Glitter: I need to get that toy, but how? Where is that brother of mine.. is it safe to come out?

Round 3: Leo leaps into action! No, it's not safe, he's guarding still!
Leo: No no, never! All toys are my toys! Mine mine mine!! *maniacal laughter*

The Final Move: Cashmere learns his weakness!
Cashmere: He's easy to defeat, as long as you remind him that there's left over snack, and it's one of his favorites! hee hee hee! My chirpy cricket now! Glitter, you can have the cow kicker!

Worth the eye straining blur? I hope so, because I thought it was adorable! Then again, I miss them, so everything they do is adorable to me!


Last week I told you about the special needs Winnie's Wish kitty on the Daily Dose blog, and how she, Angel, needs surgery on the 20th. We're trying to raise the cost of the surgery, so if you are able to donate, that would be a huge help! While I'm still in rehab working on getting my legs stronger I cannot do a full fledged fundraiser. But what I am doing is trying to make a small thank you gift for those who are willing to help with a donation. Please read about Angel's issues HERE and on today's Daily Dose post HERE.
Then if you can, please use the donate button on my site, or the Daily Dose site to help with the vet bill. Thank you!!
