Blue Point

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

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

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


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.

I Am 11 Years Young!

Yuppers, I too had a birthday, so now I have 'caught up' with Pipo, MOL!
We are not twins, but we are only a few days apart...born in diffurent parts of our city...and then later we were gotted on the same day, so I guess we are sort of twins form diffurnet mothers, OMC!!

About a year ago, meowmy wasn't even sure I would still be here, I was so furry sick and fading away...I was diagnosed with IBD, and now I am on all kinds of meds and spawsial noms...so I have gained back some weight and I eat purr-purr-ly again...but...I only eat when meowmy feeds me with a spoon...shucks, I just do not have appetite, despite all the medicines. But meowmy loves me, I know; cause she does this three times a day. Sometimes I might eat one or two bites of my noms, sometimes I snatch a kibble from Pipo's bowl, but not nearly enough to sustain me...sigh...

I do not throw up nearly as much as before, I was doing that one or more times a day, now maybe only once a week or so. Sometimes when I do eat those kibbles, they just come right back up. YUCK!
Meowmy says she really doesn't mind feeding me,but she does have to make time for that, which can get hard on her working days...or if she has a lot of errands to do. The worst was when she had to go out of town, I had to go to a boarding spa, and she had to teach them what to do, MOL!! Pipo came along to snoopervise...Ha-ha!

So now I am 11, I am getting to be an old kitty...but the way I do silly things I still act kittenish! I love to chew on the cords like the USB to the confuser, earbud wires and even the power cord to the laptop. Between my spawsial noms, medicines and wire replacements, pawppy says I am his millionaire kitty, MOL!!
I don't know why I have to chew those wires, but they are so appealing...

I still wrestle with Pipo, pounce on my mousies and love to lounge in sunpuddles. And Catnip...don't get me started about catnip!! MOL! And making bread is a good way to massage the peeps here. Or in the air! My purr engine motorizes the bread making exercises:)

I got a new mousie to chase, as well as some ones that are on my page here.
And thanks so much fur those and fur all the other prezzies on my page. Its so decorated!

Manytoes made me this furry nice memento of this day:

Thanks Manytoes!

And the Birthday/Gotcha Day Club sent me this one:

Thanks Birthday and Gotcha Day Club!

Meowmy also made me this one:

Thanks Meowmy!

It was really snowy here, along with a lot of sleet, ice pellets and rain. A big wintry mess! I am glad I am an inside kitty fur sure!
Ad I am happy to be eleven years young!



Gotcha/Valentine's Day ~ After The Fact

February 15th 2015 12:34 pm
[ Leave A Comment ]

Yup, you read that right...I couldn't get here to pawlay at all yesterday...not cause of pesky fleas, but cause meowmy said my brofur dog-guy was at a dance in Bloggville. What the Cat is up with that, Sheesh:( Sometimes the slaves around here are useless to me...but I guess I am stuck with them so I will have to just grin and bear it. MOL!

But, I do see that lots of other furry pals were allowed to be busy here in Catsterland.
There are oh so many prezzies on my page...fur Valentine's Day and fur my Gotcha Day. Thanks evfur so furry much to all of you!
I ♥ you all!
I shall try at some point to send out purr-purr thank mews...

Also cause of the peeps not cooperating with me to come here, I missed out on the free gift that was being sent out:( Shucks. Well here is my own version fur ya all: (( ♥ )) See, hearts and hugs go out to my pals:))

I did get good noms, some fum pawlaying time and a lot of chin scritches. I made bread on pawppy too, MOL! Isn't that a a fun thing to do to the peeps you love, make lots of bread and biscuits just fur them! Meowmy said she could hear my purr engine from across the room!

While the peeps were at home most of the day, they had to be outside in bitter winds and cold to clear out the sidewalks and driveway from yet another dump of snow.
Then they left fur an early Valentine's Day dinner but they got back befur dark...the roads were quite icy and whiteouts were apt to occur, so they did not want to be out after dark. This morning it was about -10F here, Brrr! Unfurbro-the-elder said his pipes had frozen in his apartment, so he had to call maintenance to remedy the trouble...they had not reminded the tenants to open their faucets...sigh...at least the pipes had not burst in his den.

Well, I am still not eating more than a bite or a nibble or two at a time. So the hand feeding is still part of mine and meowmy's twice daily routine...a can each time...teeny spoonful by teeny spoonful. Meowmy says she could better spend that time doing other things, but hey, she is my slave and I need her, MOL! (When there is some $$ in the wallets here, they may get another vet's opurrnion and diagnoses, so I can eat better on my own...)
I have not lost any more weight and I can play and purr with the best of them. Howevfur I still do barfies, mostly on an empty stomach, isn't that strange? Makes meowmy think it is not pancreatitis cause that would make the upchucks happen right after a meal.

Well, Tundra my good pal and her helpfur furmily of artists made me a nice piccie memento fur my Gotcha Day:

Minko: 'Isn't this a lovely memento for my Gotcha Day from Tundra and her helpers! Thank mew furry much!'

Well, off to find a sunpuddle, there are lots to choose from today even though it is so furry cold outside, its warm and cozy in here!



I Had Birthday Number TEN!!

Yesterday meowmy was so busy all the day long, she could hardly even be here with me in Catster to help me see what all was happening...sigh...Sheesh, she needs to quit her job and hire a maid fur all the chores so I can come here to play a lot more, MOL!!

I appawlogize fur missing things...but I will furgive meowmy too...cause she takes care to see that I get all the good nutrition I need...else I would be a skeleton...by doing the feeding help/assist, I have gained a wee bit:).

You see, I haven't been feeling too well of late, and I just will not eat by myself at all...so meowmy puts the food in my mouth...and I do eat it then. I do barf at times, too, mostly when my stomach is empty, go figure. The vet lady thought I may have pancreatitis, judging by my labs, so she gave me a prescription diet, but I won't eat that at all, and it even makes me do more pukies...YUCK! We can't afford to do the extensive tests she wanted to do, and so meowmy and her decided just to treat me as if it is indeed that nasty pancreatitis. I had shrunk down to barely 7 lbs, but now am a few ounces more:)

I wanted to let you know that I am now 10 years old, too! My Birthday was yesterday, so yes, that is why I am a bit miffed that I couldn't play here...but belatedly means an extension of the fun and attentions, right?? MOL!

I'm 10 years old now, so I can lay back and relax!

Minko ~ Dec 29, 2014
Minko ~ Dec 29, 2014 I'm pawyering fur a good future, fur me and my furmily and my pals, too.

Sunbeams on my birthday are welcome fur sure! I think the heavenlies are shining upon me...

My Portrait

I'm wondering about the future...

I got a tad frisky, too...

from all the sunbeams...

and from the attention...

and these props...

why...I couldn't resist a good bitey on them, MOL!

Now...what is this??

Something else good to chew on?!?

Oh My Catness...

As you can see, meowmy has been tinkering with my pictures. lately...she can add these white or black frames, blur the edges, lighten or darken them even change their colors, OMC! These pictures were all made on the same sunny morning, with her I-Pad! It doesn't have a flash in it, and close ups are purrty easy...the hardest thing is to hold it and use a free finger to push the shutter...though sometimes I am paw ready to help her, MOL!

That being said, it is by no means the end of her camera usage!! There are still things where that device is far superior:)

Now meowmy has to go shopping...fur some huge items...maybe Pipo & I will get the boxes...Christmas sure gave us some good ones...now she will be getting some bigger ones, the microwave gave up in a huge stinky electrical debacle and it was a wonder the house didn't get burned down...phew!
Then our fur sucking machine is way too long in the tooth, so a new one will be arriving soon...but, sheesh, will that mean we have to do more hiding? Or will all our fur deposits to soften the carpet be work fur nothing?
And this am the little counter height freezer decided to turn off furevfur...sheesh, the things that dwell in our den must think meowmy is a money bag and if'n she puts all that $$ in those items, well, will we get our noms?? And more toys and nip, too? Meowmy says each one of those items costs so and so many shifts extra of work...oh...good, meowmy that means you will be even busier and home less than befur...sigh...
I sure hope nothing else breaks or conks out around here!


And to all my Catster pals: Thanks so much fur the prezzies on my page, and the Pawmails, too! And Manytoes and furmily made this nice piccie fur me, too:

Thanks so much, Manytoes! I love it!

Purrs to all and to all a good night!
