Gotcha Date:
February 14th 2005

Birthday:
December 29th 2004

Coloration:
Blue Point

Likes:
Hunting his toy mice, the laser light, the cosy places by the furnace grates

Pet-Peeves:
strangers, new things coming into his environment, they grab his curiosity, but he has to stretch very far to take a cautious look and sniff.

Favorite Toy:
Fur mice, laser light, cardboard boxes, he likes to bite them and rip them; I think he learned that from our dog...

Favorite Nap Spot:
On top of the dryer when it is on, by the furnace grates, any sunny spot, under covers

Favorite Food:
Iams, cottage cheese, yogurt, tiny bits of human food such as poultry or fish

Skills:
He likes to wash the dog's face and ears, he knows when yogurt or other such containers are opened, bossing the other animals around

Dwells:
indoors

Arrival Story:
Rescued from a very dirty and unloving environment. He was very scrawny and smelly when we brought him to our house. He is still small, but healthy.We didn't start out looking for a rescue, but since he was so dirty, scrawny and full of fleas we think we did him the favor. The vet thought he would be a sickly guy, but he has thrived! He is sleek, and a real lover boy. He may be small, but he is the boss of my other animals, almost a bully, he always seems to 'get his way' such as the best sleeping spot, or square of sunshine, etc. Once when he was checking out a new mat with great caution, I jiggled the edge of the mat, he was instantly spooked and jumped straight up in the air with puffed up fur. It was so funny.

Waaaaa!….sniff…sob…
Waaaaa!
I am sad…and maybe need to do some hissing, too!

Meowmy got a notice that I am a DDP, and with all the big nasty fleas here, I can’t see my self over in Diary Central..Right now I might have a better chance of seeing myself if I was in Union Station, cause that would cause a ruckus, MOL!

Well, thanks HQ fur picking me anyways!

Not much to report regarding me…status quo is how meowmy describes it. Still only eating if I am made to…about one can of wet food each day, whereas I should be having 2 or maybe 2 1/2. Usually I have kibbles and a can as snack food.

I am not hiding as much, and sometimes I come to meowmy or pawppy fur scritches.

I will wash my face after I get my medicine or food.

Well, all I can say is keep up the purrs and I thank you all from the bottom of my kitty heart for all the purrs, lawyers, prezzies decorating my page, comments and above all your love.

MIAOW!

 

A Stinky Minky Update

Well, I am stable, but not 100% by any means. Sometimes I nibble at my food, sometimes meowmy has to put it into my mouth. I hate that , but since the food is usually yummy because its my normal wet food, I just accept it. Not sure why I do not consistently eat on my own...but I did just eat about a tablespoon of my food by myself. When meowmy put some more on my plate, I just stared at her, MOL!

I have done some urka-gurka's, but not much...meowmy says my tummy must be feeling yucky from the medicine I have to take.
After I get my pill, 2 times a day, meowmy has to give me water to make sure its down, and she always adds some baby meat from one of those wee jars. Thats pretty good, too...but if I decide not to eat, then meowmy puts it into my mouth...and hence I am a bit stinky...kitty food on my furs, eeuuwww! So I wash myself! Meowmy likes seeing me do that, I wasn't doing much grooming when I was furst not feeling good.

I go pee-pee in the box, and did a stinky-poo, too...MOL! Nothing amiss there!

But mostly meowmy is setting me in the box, she has not seen me get into it by myself. I just don't want to walk around...
I have been spending most of the time hiding, but this afternoon, meowmy put me in one of my kitty beds in the living room, and I stayed there.
This evening, I came out of there to go and beg pawppy fur some scritches and loves. I sat on his lap fur a while, too. Then I went into my 'regular' kitty nest closer to meowmy's confuser desk. All by myself!

So there you have it...not worse, but not a whole lot better either, I guess it will take time. At least as a kitty I have lots of that, MOL!

It sure was noisy here this afternoon and evening, lots of thunderstorms.

Pipo comes by to sniff me now and then, and we exchange a headbonk or two, but we have not romped or zoomed at all.

Dog-guy sniffs me too...sheesh, am I that stinky?

Well, meowmy has to go to work the next two days on second shift...she has made my medicine schedule fit around her work hours.
Pawppy is home in the evenings, so he can give me noms if I need any.

Thanks so much to all of you fur those rosettes, and prezzies on my page!
And many more thanks fur all the purrs and pawyers. I know they are helping.
All you furends are evfur so pawsome! ♥

 

Minko Isn't Doing So Well & Needs Purrs, Pawlease

Well, this time there is an excuse about why we didn't play in the diaries of our pals or even post our own...

Our interweb connection died. It was not working at all for several days, Bummer. So meowmy went to mobile WiFi 'hot spots' to keep in touch, but she couldn't really take the time to post much from those places. But she did enjoy the coffee in those places, MOL!

Not sure why it got scared and left us…

And wouldn’t you know it.

That is when things happen.

Pawppy had a birthday and we couldn’t mew about that.

Meowmy got hit by a resident at her job. She is fine:)

There is a bird nest in the eaves next door, phoebes; so we are having fun watching that.

Anyways, our connection to the outside world seems to be fine now, hope it stays on, and we hope we didn't miss too much either.

Pawppy had his Birthday and the peeps left us to our devices and they went to visit a railroad museum.

Historic Train Station, Durand Michigan
Historic Durand Railway Station, Durand Michigan

It was interesting to them but not so much to us, we would have been spooked from all those noisy clanging bells, horns and clackety clacks! They had a nice lunch in that town, too...then they came home, and after some time they left again...and met up with unfur the elder and they ate a nice dinner...in a concerted railway station! OMC!


Clara's
(A Renovated Train Station)

Meowmy told the waitress in secret that it was pawppy's birthday and when dinner was done, he got a cake, complete with candle and the whole gang of employees singing a happy birthday to him! He was kind of embarrassed but that was one way meowmy didn't have to bake a cake, MOL!! Or have leftovers...shucks, we could have helped gobble up a cake!

Saturday, June 14th was Flag Day. Meowmy wore a flag pin to work...and it was lovely weather, so we flew our own flag at the den all day long.

Then on Sunday it was Father's Day. Meowmy had to work, so that was sort of a bummer, but she got to see lots of pawppy's; either visiting or being visited.

Well, all this chatter is fine, but now about Me, Minko...

Pipo is enjoying not being pestered lately, I am mostly in hiding mode. No eating, no playing...and only use the box if meowmy puts me on it. OMC:((

This all started on Thursday. Meowmy couldn't even tell any one of our pals about it, cause our interwebs was kaput. Such timing.

My pawrents thought I had hurt my paw by racing back inside the house after one of my furtive ventures outdoors. They thought that tincture of time would be the cure...but by the time it was Friday, they decided it was bad, so off to the vet I, Minko went...after being stuffed into a carrier, sheesh I thought that was rather undignified.

At the vet spot, I had to literally be pried from that carrier...MOL! I'll show them...






We wanted to post this about the same time the interwebs crashed here, but of course time has passed, and now there is more to report. So this is Minko's version of the first part...

I was hiding. A lot:(

And barely eating:(

Playing…nope not that either.

Then meowmy noticed that I was limping. Oh NO.

So she rudely stuffed me in a carrier and off to that vet place I went.

I have lost about 1/2 a pound. Too much, really.

Well the vet lady was unable to find any overt issue with my paw/leg (Left front), but she gave me some analgesic/anti-inflammatory pills to take fur a few days. She said she hoped tincture of time would take care of me. If not well, then further investigations would need to be done.

That first pill went down my gullet at about 1030 am, and now 12 hours later, I am acting a tad better:))

I have to take this medicine 3 more days. Purr that it helps me get better, and that I don’t need to go back to that scary vet place.

Meowmy was also wondering if it could be possible that I have Lyme disease, because of my vague symptoms. So if I do not stay better, she will ask the vet about getting me on the antibiotics needed to help rid a body of that scourge. Sheesh my pawppy’s Mother had that for many years and it was awful.

Hope all is well with all of my kitty pals.

I know that Pipo & I missed a lot of spawsial oc-cat-sions, but its good to be back now.

MIAOW!

Now meowmy is back:

That bit above is what was going to be posted early on Friday when we couldn't...so now...

Minko seemed good for while after getting each dose of that medicine, but after a few hours it was back to hiding. and do not touch me. He was biting us if we did...

I had to force feed him and dribble water in his mouth to make sure he didn't have other issues starting. After each time I put him on the litter box, and he would go right away, not a problem there.:))

But the Lyme disease issue continues to be uppermost in my thoughts, given that the ticks are horribly prolific this year, and he keeps going outside. Kitties groom themselves, so he could have easily bitten off a tick if it was on him so that we wouldn't notice it. We did have one that needed removal on Dog-Guy.

So I called the vet back, and had a discussion with her, she wanted to do xrays...but I asked to get Minko on a course of antibiotics and see if that would help. She reluctantly agreed. Sheesh, I only want to do what my gut feelings are leading me to do.

Well, he is now on doxycycline for 10 days. Hoping for the best.

Now to solve the issue of him getting all those pests crawling on him...UGH.

(We never treated them for other than heartworms because they stay inside, an dog-guy gets treated so he doesn't have any... )

Pleas purr hard for my little Minko so that he will get better and feel more himself soon. He can be a rascal, but I hate seeing him suffer like this.

I will update when I can.
