I just have to share that one of the greatest things about Miss Peg is that she is just so content all of the time. I work from home most days, and she likes to be in her little bed right next to my computer on my desk. She will play a bit, but she really just seeks out a place to curl up and nap. Today I think she has been purring constantly. Just a lovely little contented purr. She is sleeping upside down a lot, which tells me she is feeling at home. That is what we want for her, and it gives me great joy to report that she even purrs in her sleep.

Wishing all of Peg's friends and their mamas and papas could feel her soft warm little body and hear her purr. I hope this description has been close enough.

We love her so much.

That's all...just had to share!

Sad and Happy today... oh and HAPPY too!

March 3rd 2010 10:01 am

I am writing this from the hospital, where I have captured the hearts of my wonderful vet, Dr. Perkin, and her special ladies. Did you know that one of her vet tech is named Peggy too?

Well, first the sad, since I want to end with the good: I came in to have my teeth cleaned today, and to see if I was going to get to keep my white ear or not. Mom also wanted them to re-do my bloodwork. Well..... it turns out that I am positive for FIV. I was picked on my bigger cats when I was on my own, and it must have happened when I got into a fight at some point. So Dr. Perkin said she does not want to operate on me until I have a couple weeks of heavy duty antibiotics in me first. My mom is sad, but she also knows a lot about FIV, and she knows that I can live happily with Ralph and Joe with no problem. She also has a lot of good stuff for my immune system, so all in all, I am in a good place.

...Sigh... I think mom needs a bigger hug than I do to be honest. ♥

Now for the good news: My ear is STAYING! Yes, it is normal!!! I will always have a jagged edge from the frostbite, but I get to keep it. Yaaayyyy!

And for the REALLY GOOD NEWS: You may have noticed that the ~Adoptable~ has been removed from my profile. Mom and Dad think they need to make absolutely sure I get the best nutrition and immune support possible, and although I don't love everybody 100%, I am showing them that I do love living here. They just wanted me to be as happy as I can be. But because I need extra special TLC, they asked me if I would be willing to overlook some of everybody's less than perfect qualities. I said yes, and now I am staying. So March 1 is going to be my birthday from now on.

With lots of love,

Peggy

 

To Ear or not to Ear?

I may have mentioned that I might have a teeny tiny bit of skin cancer on my white ear. Dr. Perkin though it might be frostbite, but she said it looks like skin cancer to her, especially since it has not gone away with medicine and TLC. Good thing I got to see such a good vet! If she had not noticed, it could have become worse. She says that kind of cancer is "A Gressive"...I don't know what that is, but I don't think I want anything to with such a thing!

Anyway, My ear was looking better, but not totally. I go in to have my teeth cleaned and the last of the mats shaved off on March 3, and I'm afraid I may have to say goodbye to the top part of my cute white ear. At least I will get to keep the cool orange and black one! And mom says I will be able to hear just fine.

So in the case this is my ear's last week on my cute little head, I wanted to give it center stage for the next week. Mommy keeps kissing it. I think she is trying to kiss it better >^..^<



PS: Ralph, if you are reading this, don't you DARE try to kiss my ear, or we will both be missing an ear by the time next week rolls around.

 

Happy Tummy Day for Everyone!

Well, MY tummy is always happy, and a little bit hungry, too! Mom was reminding me about how she had to give me food from her fingers and fluids through the bag on the back of the door not too long ago. Now I am eating anything and everything. She says I eat like a "maine Eyac"...whatever that means.

The good news is that Joe's tummy is all better! He did not have a "foreign body" after all. Again...whatever that is. I have no idea. Joe came home and has been very happy. I like Joe. He leaves me alone. Unlike Ralph. Sheesh! Will Ralph ever learn? Mom keeps telling me what a nice guy he is, but I just don't know. I want to be looked at on my terms, and he just wants to look at me ALL the time.

I am coming out to eat on my own now, and I do much less growling at my fellow family members. And I heard Dad say something interesting the other day. He said "In six months she will get along with everybody" SIX MONTHS? He said SIX MONTHS! Mom was really happy. If Dad is talking about me being here in six months, he is probably thinking that I may be home already. Mom and I are keeping quiet, but inside we are very happy.

On a serious note, Mom did promise me that if I am not happy here, she will understand. Time will tell and for now I am quite content, thank you very much.

It is time to watch those crazy humans flail around on the television screen again. Why anyone would want to skate on ice or play in the snow is beyond me. I guess they were never left out there too long with nowhere to call home. Me? I'll take my comfy bed and my warm room any day over ice and snow =o)

Purrs to all!

 

Knotty girl

As I mentioned before, I have lots of knots and mats. I am feeling much better and I am giving myself baths all the time. I am pulling a lot of them out all on my own. Mom has been helping, and I surprised everyone by letting her! I may not have to be shaved after all! Mom says I have such soft fur, she wonders if I'm part bunny =o)

Brother Joe is having tummy problems, and he is having x-rays taken at our wonderful vet's office today. He had some taken yesterday and then he had to swallow yucky white stuff so Dr. Perkin could take more. He might have something ...an "ub-struk-ton" or something like that...Mom thinks he ate some tape. We are so careful to keep plastic out of his reach. Anyway, it is just me and Ralph today. And the dogs of course. That Ralph...I could do without him!

Off to do more grooming. Have a great day everybody!

I finally learned how to make my diary and my name prettier with hearts! Thank you so much Nelly Bel May >^..^<

Speaking of hearts and love and such, I wanted to send special love and warmth to Mayhem and Mary. We know they are dealing with a lot of snow up there in Mary-Land!

Beans

I am feeling so much better now! And wow am I hungry. My tummy makes me brave when I'm hungry. I will march right out into the living room and up into the cat tree for my bowl! Mom made me a path of chairs and stools so I don't have to get on the floor when the dogs and other cats are nearby. But you know what? They really aren't all that bad. Not that I am ready for snuggles or conversation with them or anything, mind you. I still growl, but I'm not letting them bother me too much anymore.

Anyway, as I was saying, my appetite has returned and the food here is really great! I was so hungry yesterday that I got up on the counter and started in on Mom's bowl of black beans while she wasn't looking. Let me tell you that when she turned around and saw me there on the counter with my mouth full of beans, she was so surprised! then she started laughing. I accepted a ride back over to the cat tree and she offered me seconds on my dinner.

It tasted better than beans ;o)

 

Hiding 101

I got tired of waiting for my typist to finish last night, so as she typed for me, I decided to be VERY brave. I decided to take a look downstairs. When Mom came to get me for bedtime, I was nowhere to be found. Seriously...nowhere. She was so worried! For hours she looked for me. She really thought she had checked everywhere. She even convinced herself that I must have found a way out, so she walked up and down the street outside calling for me. She went to the house where I was found and she thought she saw me, but it turns out that she saw a little bit of snow under a bush. Now that all is well, she is giggling about how funny she must have looked crawling around in strangers' front yards at midnight. She says the police wouldn't have known what to do about the middle-aged plump bandit in flannel PJs and muck boots if someone had reported her and they had been called to investigate...MOL.

After lurking around the house shaking a bowl of food like a maraca, she finally found me in the laundry room in the basement. At exactly 4:13AM. To be honest, I was ready to be found! I really needed to poop, and I wouldn' t think of going anywhere but in my box. As soon as she picked me up, I purred my best purr and snuggled her big time. We came back up into my Room Sweet Room and I pottied first thing. Then I got up on her lap and rubbed and purred. I purred so much I made myself very hungry. After a good meal and belly rubs, it was time to settle in for a good day's sleep.

My advice on hiding is that one must remember how to UN-hide before going in too deep. But I'm not advising against hiding, mind you. Being FOUND is so much fun!

Today was a big day for me. I spent time in the living room WITH other furry family members. On Saturday, Mom let me explore out there and it was just me. Today, Mom brought me out to the cat tree and I really enjoyed watching the goings on outside. I got down and spent a few hours on the back of the couch when Dad got up to go to work, and now I am back on the cat tree.

Growling is an absolute must for a lady in my position. Even though I am not concerned for my safety, it is very important that I make sure everyone knows that I am not to be sniffed, licked, snuggled, or stared at until I am good and ready. Now Mom and Dad can do any of the above and I will not complain one bit. Well...maybe not the licking. That would be uncomfortable for us all.

I allowed Mom to remove several of my mats today. She stops when I give her "the look", so I trust her to do a little bit at a time. It feels good afterward, and I am beginning to really enjoy the petting now that the mats are going away.

Three more days of antibiotics...yippee! I am a good sport about takng them, but there really is not anything dignified about having one's mouth opened and then having water squirted down to make sure the pill goes where it is supposed to. Alas, I do feel better, so I suppose it is worth it.

Well friends, it is time for a little bath. Purr at you soon!

Dinner Time and I'm hungry!

I am eating with great enthusiasm, which makes my humans very happy. When us kitty cats stop eating because we can't smell our food and we feel bad, our cute little livers can get sick very quick. So needless to say, everyone is relieved. I'm getting some extra vitamin B and some Milk Thistle in my food to support my liver. Also some Oregon Grape root and and Lysine for my immune system,Slippery Elm and probiotics for my mucus membranes and my tummy. And no more fluids from that awful bag hanging on the back of my door. That makes me VERY happy!

Ralph and Joe had their food on the other side of my room tonight. I guess that was okay. They are so much bigger than I am. Joe has very acceptable manners and I am less concerned about him than I am about Ralph. That guy will come right up and give anyone a bath. Shameless. What kind if a girl does he think I am anyway? He is one of those guys who can be overly friendly. The dogs are taking me seriously, and they are showing much more restraint than I was expecting at first. That is nice. Not to say I 'm not keeping them guessing with my growl though. Better to be safe than sorry if you ask me.

Time to curl up with Mom and her book. I am content and safe and it feels very nice. Purrr purrr purrrrrrrrrr...
