Oh My this just snuck up on me!
It was my Gotcha Day yesterday.
The old guy, Pops not Buddy, had been a bit under the weather. He told us in the AM that he had some days off and we let him chill, after breakfast of course. So I just took a snooze and paid no mind to anycat or Pops.
Then all of a sudden Pops shook the treat container and I ran in. OMC! My Brofurs and Fitz were sitting on the floor around my goodies! Oh Boy! I got a new feather wand and some treats too! Yum! Pops got himself some hot-dogs for the party. Since we do not eat those he gave us Tuna.
We all played awhile and then ate till full!
Then we all took a nap AND DID IT AGAIN!
Thanks cats! Thanks Pops! I have the bestest home of all!

Mortified I tell ya
Let me explain. Since we had such a tough week previously all of us have been on the rebound. Running and playing. All excited and frisky. Chasing Pops and having fun.
So I was asking for treats, like always, and got excited, like always, and ran to the litter, like always, and did my duty, like always. Just like always. Almost.
Seems I had a cling-on on my Floof! Not a big deal. Lots of cats have stoof on their Floor. Right?
Mine feel off. Right on the shiny floor. How can you cover shiny floor stuff? I was trying really hard when Pops say me. OMG. I ran under the desk. Embarrassed. M-o-r-t-i-f-i-e-d!
Now Pops thought it was because I thought my Bump needed a wash. I do not like that one bit. But I was so very upset. My feet were sweating. My ears were hot. Buddy-Bud did not help with his endless jokes. Ha ha Buddy. Ha ha.
I came out later on but what can a cat do? I guess I will get over it
Some day. In a few years. Maybe. Maybe. OMG.

My furs do not worry.
Your Rumpy-Bump is back to his old self. Yes it was touch and go but I pulled through. Not being able to eat treats for, golly, almost 4 hours, was very difficult but my tummy is all back to normal. I can snack away. Snack snack treat treat. Lovely words if I say so myself.
My squint-eye thing is almost gone too. It was nasty having itchy eyes for a couple day, but, really Pops, taking me to vet! MEOW! Uncalled fur!
Now he is trying to get me to sit still for that drippy eye stuff. Nope. I am not going to do that. I don't care if Mr B says I will get chicken bits. I do not like chicken like he does.
It took Pops two weeks to get him to let the drips drip. Maybe if I demand treats instead? I mean my eyes already are just about better so... Hmmm. Two weeks of treats and then allow one or two drips. Maybe that young guy is smarter than we all think.
We shall see. MOL. See. I am a funny Bump!

Thanks fur all the supportz fur my issue
My good pal Natalie says she haz it too and her tail causes big trouble.
Maybe I really am lucky to not have that old tail. The other cats at the shelter made fun of me but maybe... Hmm... Pops watches my back skin start waving and he swears if I had a tail it would be slamming back and forth.
He has been doing extra to work off my energy and has also pushed back everyfurs dinner till later. This seems to keep me calmer and helps us all to sleep most nights. I dont know why Pops does not want to play at 3am? It really is the best time of day. Oh Well.
Pop has the home made food thing cooking again.
We even liked it. Once you get used to it.
Have a good week all

Whoa! You can imagine my surprise!
Pops calls me over and sits (well he sat I flopped) me down for a little Dad to Cat talk.
He came out with it and told me I may have feline hyperesthesia syndrome.
Oh My. I was really worried. I came right out and asked: 'Am I going to die?' Pops said no but I will let him tell you himself.
Pops: "Well hello fur pals of my Boys. I want to get this information out there so other pawrents will know about this serious condition.
First: It is a syndrome so it is not an actual disease.
The cat will sometimes act like they are having hallucinations. Their pupils grow large and they act as though there is another cat they are fighting with. They can chew at their backs by the base of their tail. (This is not Stud-Tail) Sometimes the skin on their backs ripples and this is where 'Rolling Skin' comes from. Rumpy looks like he has a wave under his skin. It can be relatively mild, Rumpy's case, to very severe.
The cat chews at the base of the tail, the tail is very active and they can be aggressive.(Rumpy) It is responsive to medications so if you think this may be an issue with your fur please see your veterinarian.
It is unclear what the cause it but some feel it is a stress reaction from trauma."
Well Dad, is this why I get worked up at night?
Pops: "I think so Rumpy. I know you are not mean. You just get this look in your eyes and seem to go wild."
It seems I dont remember. Am I really that wild and... I feel embarrassed, do the brofurs, uh, well, do they Hate me?
Pops: "No, but you are pretty tough to deal with. Your even snap at me you know"
So I feel pretty embarrassed. I will try to not act out so much. I guess I cant have treats anymore huh?
Pops: "You can still have treats. We love you even though you are a real pain in the..."
CAT-OH-CAT! TREATS! HEY DOODS!

Well furends I almost's got a cat-chastizement.
Pops put my really neat Kitty Holster on me and I was ready. He knew I wanted to go out cause I was hollaring on the steps for all morning.
So we go out and I am chilling and OMC! (Oh My Cat for hoomans) There were HOOMANS out there! Right where I walk! I ran! Zoom! Back behind Pops. Now here is the odd thing. Pops was just like no big deal. Whut is it with hoomans. Don't they have territory?
Since Pops was talking to them I came over. VERY slowly. CAREFULLY I came close enough to give a sniff. They were showing teeth. (That is not hissing if you do not know. Its a hooman thing) Pops said they were "the new neighbors". Then he told them it looked like I wanted to go in. YES I DO.
So that was not the problem. When we went in I was still all worked up. Pops went to clean my, uhm my Bump, and... well... I was a bit excited. I think I clawed Pop. I DID NOT MEAN IT. He said "STAY STILL BUMP". He was upset. He told me "If you do not act nice NO MORE OUT"!
Uh-Oh. I was good then. He said it was ok maybe he should have waited till I was more relaxed and that after all he was the hooman. Whats he mean by that? Well, then he played with me. Good old Pop.
Since we made up I am going to go on the stair and ask to go OUT.
All Night Long!
Bye fur Now fur pals

Hey Pop: MMMEOUT MEE-OOUUTTT! MMOUUUTTT! ME-OUT! ME-ME-OUT!
