The Baboo Kitty Has Spoken

Hello furs and folks,
I apologize for the lengthy absence. I wanted to let you all know why-

1) I have a bad allergy that has been bothering me. Vet says its ringworm, but I appear to also be allergie to something. Mom's been giving me some medicine orally the vet prescribed, but we will be going to Big Vet this week on Daddys day off, because I look awful!!! Mommy knows I have an allergy to something becuase my ear tips get very red and my ears are scabby and I itch and itch. She has been giving me a cat antihistimine to help with the itching, but it's been bothering me jsut the same. She even stopped the cortisone cream she got for me becuase I had a reaction to that. Mom's thinkign this is my FIV related immune system reacting to something.

That said, I want to wish a belated Happy Valenines day to my girl cats out there-specially Ingen...and Miss Kaci Sunshine. I miss you Kaci....

The other thing is Mommy has been having a very bad time at work. They 'wrote her up' 3 weeks ago over nothing-and Mommy has been being harassed. She has a very short time left with grad school-only 8 weeks left of internship and til end of August for her classes. She interviewed this week for another job, that she is going to see if they will work with her to complete internship hours....but at this point, she is just hanging on and has been not feeling well from the stress.

Natalie is holding her own, and our 3 amigos, CK, Midnight and Calvin are being their clownish selves.

Mommy loves watching them!

I want to reach out to all of you and say 'thank you for being my friend'.

When things get rough...well, there is a reason my name is Orange Ruffy'.

love and light to all of you....

purrs and loves,

oh my pal - I am sorry you are so itchy & feeling crummy. Maybe part of it is that you can feel your momma's stress from her job? Us cats are fine tuned to our people - I always know when momma is sad or upset. Not saying that is the only thing going on my friend, but I am sure it does not help. Your momma want some of us tough guys from the South Side of Chicago to show them bad people at work not to pick on your momma? (just kidding - we are nuttin but mushes) Hopefully things will be ok for the rest of her internship or that the other job will work out. We have been thinking about you all so much. puirrs Ruffy & extra purrs for your momma (my momma sends her a hug) (())

I'm very sorry to hear about these problems, I hope they figure out what you are allergic too real soon so that they can get rid of it. Because, whatever it is, it is NOT as important as you clearly! Lots of purrs for your mommy too, stress is no good and sometimes, there's a lot of it. It will get better though, you wait and see, it will all get better. LOTS of meezer purrs for all of you until it does though.

One of my dogs has allergies - she does allergy shots and goes to a holistic vet, which has seemed to help some. We know first hand that allergies are no fun.
