Arrival Story:
I was in the tree next door, and Tigger kept meowing to me. Mom got me to come down with food, and she fed me every day. I started to hide in her garden by the back door, and would meow for my pal Tigger. I started to follow them around when they came out for Tigger's walk. Mom is pretty sure that my cat mommy & sibling are at the rainbow bridge already, and she was sad for them. She was so patient cause she knew I was scared, then one day she asked me if I would like to come inside the screen porch! Mom said it was too scary out there for such a teeny kitten, and now I am getting all the food I want, and pets & scritches! I never had them before but they sure feel nice! I close my eyes & purr when I feel the lovies! I went to the vet & got a shot, but I tried to be very brave. A home of my own! No more hiding from the other bad cats and scary stuff out there! Mom says she will get me my own leash so I can take walks with Tigger! I get so excited when I see him, I start to knead the ground & mew like a motorboat. Everyone here has been so nice to me & they pet me and call me a good little kitty. I have a full tummy & warm bed. I like it here! well, I have a name, and I run through the house like a whirlwind. I ask nicely for my food, ok I scream at Mom till I get my food - and I love to play! I especially love to play with Tigger.

Bio:
Smitty is still kind of shy, but he is starting to blossom. He has started to sleep at my feet at night, and will cram himself into the same box with Tigger for a nap. He has even started to seften up Maizy a teeny bit - I caught her playing tap paw with him the other day!

Well pals, I just got lucky, and Momma says I probably used 1/2 of one of my 9 lives. Tuesday, I didn't feel so good. I was in my bed, and did not want to eat or play. I didn't even really talk to Momma - we chat alot - all very unusual for me. Now, those of you that know me, I love my noms - so red alert #1. Tuesday night Momma even said to The Dad "I don't think Smitters feels well - he doesn't seem right." I ate a tiny bit Wednesday morning, but was still very mopey. Momma figured when she got back from the grocery to get Nana's milk, a vet call would be made. When she got back & went to put a few things in the basement, there was a pile o barf with something in it. At first she thought it was a leaf, but there's no plants inside the house that I can get to. When she went to clean it, there was a balled up section of curling ribbon - probably at least a foot long. Momma has been cleaning the basement & getting rid of things. She moved some wrapping paper from one spot into a different drawer. Somehow that must have been mixed in and fell. She really watches stuff like that, cause I am known to eat things I should not - so Momma always double checks. There wasn't even ribbon in the drawer.... She thinks that it was in between the sheets of wrapping paper (which was from our Nana's old house) So I got a 1/4 pepcid, and I am doing fine, back to my old self. It scared Momma, and she felt bad that it happened, but glad that I was able to get it out. I guess I gotta leave the spaghetti alone! So a word to the wise - make sure you double check when you move things!

 

surgery done

All went ok with the surgery itself. Now we have to wait 5 business days to find out what the heck it was. Vet said she had no idea what it was....It looked like a white mole to Momma. Vet gave me a pain shot instead of taking medicine home, which Momma is not such a fan of, it made me so out of it all night. I was so hungry but I couldn't even eat, so I slept until almost 8pm. Then I ate some, but my pupils where still huge & all wonky. Been sleeping most of the day today too. I got 2 stitches that will have to come out. Momma said why don't they just use the dissolveable ones....oh well. Like I said we won't know anything until prob end of next week. I hope my pretty furs grow back on my neck quick - I'm cold!

ps YAY Catster we got pictures back!!!

 

yikes and the bad B

I went to the vet for my usual poking and prodding. Do they enjoy sticking things...well you know...? My teeth look good - Momma was worried since I had the resorption before. However.....she had noticed a little bump almost like a little pimple towards the base of my ear on my neck, and mentioned it to Dr. Lebbin. Doc does not like to leave any lump or bump on that area no matter how small - it is not a good place for them to be and they are not always harmless- she says it is better to GET IT OFF. So I go on the 27th to have it removed. I hope it will be ok. Momma wasn't worried before, but now she kind of is...They will send it for biopsy, so we will know what it is - which I hope will be nothing. I had a tramatic visit though - I ended up peeing in the carrier on the way there (I never have before) so much that there was no pp for a urinalisys. and my towel cushion was soaked. THen I poopied on the way home. I am sorry Momma - I made the car STANK!!! sooo I went right to the basement in the carrier and had to have.... A BATH. I was so so scared, and Momma got soaked. She felt so bad to have to, but I smelled - and a kitty wipe was not gonna do it this time. I got myself so upset that when she wrapped me in the fluffy towel & brought me upstairs, I just laid there in her arms. This scared Momma cuz I am not the "hold me" type of kitty. I guess I wore myself out trying to jump out of the sink. I got a nice lunch & some treats though. I am curled up sound asleep on the soft blankie on the bed in the office while Momma is working. I will get a nice brushie later & I am sure some more treats. Keep your paws crossed my pals please? just for extra safeness?
