So update on my favorite subject: Me! MOL
Pops had all the writing for the weeks records about my burn done and was finishing a story for a local newsletter and Boom... No Lectrical... Puter stuff all gone... He was making them noises like he does when I am really, uh, well, bad... So we got him smiling by acting like we do. Chasing and jumping and rubbing and purring. Pops says we are good at that.
So my burn is almost gone. I still cannot see but he said I will have my suit off this week. Wow. I forget I have it on. Without this suit Pops says I would never have healed this fast.
Thanks again to Toki!
If you have a kitty with a problem I suggest the Toki suit! 110% good!
So we are going to KCK today for Bird Watching! How Cool! I cannot wait! See you there!

I have not been here much as, well, I am doing Grrreat.
My ouchie is nowhere to be seen? I can still feel it itching so I am purrplexed! I think it has to do with my new short fur. And what is that all about? My fur is still long and wonderfully fluffy on my legs and head. I still have those really neat puffs of furr between my toes.
Maybe it it this "Suit". I am so used to it I do not even know it is there. Hmmm... Or is it???
I am spending these cold nights in with Pops along with the brofurs. Brrr it has been cold at night like 22 last night. OMC!
Hugs and kitty kisses! Prrttt! Prrttt!
Bye fur now! Happy V-day!
Note from Pops:
"My little fellows burn is almost better. It looks like a week or so and the scab will be falling off. Of course this is not set in stone so keep the purrs coming.
This has been very difficult. I have faithfully documented this whole
process and am amazed at the time it takes. I am looking forward to Rumpers being fully healed and out of his suit and posting this for others who have kitties with burns and/or long healing wounds.
Our next thing is to see if all of his fur comes back. He was so handsome I was going to show him at TICA events, but, just having his wonderful personality back is plenty. His is such a joy he could be quasi-cat-modo and I would love him to bits.
HAPPY VALENTINES I love all my Catster Pals!
In a very manly way of course LOL

I have been having a good week.
I think my ouchie is gone? I can't see it anymore so I wonder?
I like my suit cause it is nice and warm and cat is it cold around here! It was like in the single digits last night! It is now 8 with the sun up!
So when it is that cold We pile on the Pops. I get right next to him on the left which is my special place. I wonder now why I argued for so long about this? I mean I used to push my brofurs out of their spots all night long by always jumping on their heads! Jump on Tims head. Jump on Tobys head! Chase Buddy and jump on his head. Back to Tim. I would not get any sleep for all the head jumping. MOL!
I guess I am growing up a little.

We had a package come from Toki! Pops has been talking about some new way to help my ouchie get better. Toki said that a "Suit" was the way to go. Hmmm.
I think Pops was a little apprehensive about all this with the suit. None of us allow any little shirt or jackets or hats or ANYTHING! MOL! We are Man-Cats! MOL!
When Pops opened the package from Toki's Mom I was kind of like. Ewww!
Then he opened the thing and it went rip rip rip rip and I ran a bit. He was giving it that funny look. His lip sticks out and the fur by his eyes gets all scrunchy...
He put it away and I kept playing. Well soon I was ready for a nap. Don't you know that when I got to sleep, I sleep very deeply, Pops snuck over. First he gave me a nice head scratch. Prrtt. Prrtt. Then he rubbed my belly! Prrtt. Prrtt.
Then he put my paw through... HUH? then my other! Then he did my back and.... Yeoww! I have a thing on me... That "Suit"!!
Then he took my collar off and I worked on licking all those spots I have not been able to get too! Prrtt. Prrtt.
Wonderful. I got nice and clean. My fur tastes funny in some spots though? Well I spent the whole night next to Pops! In my Special Spot too! Right next to his left side. Tim has the Right and Toby has his leg. MOL. I went Prrtt Prrtt Prrtt all night long!
I got up this morning with no collar! Whee!
I will keep you up to date!
I love my "suit" but I really do not know what a "suit" is? Am I wearing it? MOL
Thank you so much Toki! I feel better already.
I have put a photo up too!
Thanks for the Purrs All my Pals!

Well we all know the sad truth! Pittsburgh went down like a field mouse under a paw. Pops and a couple pals were here giving them a "Ya-Hoo Comon Team" to no avail. To be honest it was half half here either Green Bay or Pittsburgh. We all had fun though.
I got to sniff some of Pops pals and his sisfur too! She has the little doggies downstairs and comes to visit me when Pops is at work. I love rubbing on her boots! Ahh! MOL!
We all got special treats so we would not walk on or eat the hooman food. Who would want to? It smelled yuck. We got little square tubs of wonderful stuff. Different flavors. Wowzers.
Then we got to play wand with every one! I leaped across the room and grabbed the best wand from Pops Pal! I got it right off him as he was not paying attention. Hoomans get big Eyes too! Who woulda known? Buddy even came to play. We had a great time.
Toby and Tim had a big fun fight on the top of the tree. It went on and on. Everyone was watching. I think they were more entertaining than the game cause it was a bit slow at times.
So a secret! Tim was all upset! He is not very social. When everyone was here Pops pal Janet went into the kitchen and Tim was in the doorway to the bedroom. He started Hissing! BIG TIME. John said:"I can see all the way in his mouth!" HISSSSSS! HISSSSS! HISSSSS! Cat talk for: "MY HOUSE! MINE! GO AWAY! MY HOUSE!"
So Pops went in and closed the door a bit. I Peeked. Tim jumped on the bed and Pops gave him a pet. He purred right away. Pops put the blanket on him like they play and told him it was alright.
Don't you know in 10 minutes Tim came out and jumped up with Pops. That was that he was in the mix. He did not want anyone to know!
So my burn is progressing. I like to lick but Pops does not want me to. Back and forth... Forth and back...
Bye fur now

Furends I am feeling great!
Da Pops is a bit upset wit me fur keeping my ouchie clean and neat but dats hoomans. I dont know why but they dont want you to EVER touch an Ouchie?
All day: "Rumpy Stop that!" and "Rumpy don't lick!" and "Rumpy stop causing troub..." Oh yeah! That was about jumping on someones head!
Like I was saying I feel GREAT! I am full of go-and-get-up!
I think we are having a kitty par-taa today! The bro-furs are all quiet like and are whispering! It is either that or they are going to gang up on me and jump on my head for a change. I hope so! Whee!
Thanks fur the purrs! I think that is why I am doing so well!
Oh Pops wants to say suptin! Bye!
Pops:"My little fellows burn is on track. He can wiggle around to get a small spot and I am going to try something called Yuck on it and see how that goes. It stops licking. My sisters dog just kept going so we shall see.
I am really happy he seems to be like before. I just have to start setting the limits I have let slide. He has to get back on track to share with his brothers. A tough lesson for this headstrong kid. He is very smart and finds ways around things. The little bug.
We are doing a vet run tomorrow or Tues so I will keep you up to date!
Thanks so much for the support! It really gave me the energy to get through this very difficult trial!"

Furends! I am doing pretty well
I gave my Ouchie a lick last night cause Pops was "checking" my wonderful collar (I am starting to like it). I got a big hunka hunka hard stuff off and he liked that but then I got the other part nice and clean. I think cat clean and hooman clean is very diffurent. We like to get our raspy tongues to get right down to, well, us. Hoomans want to leave some "old us" on our Ouchies.
But dat Pops does know a lot. He really got me feeling better when this all started and I was like "Ohhh Leave me alone Ohhh".
Wow that Trout oil works gud so tanks Tabbies!
Ingen I will this weekend when I have more puter time!
Thanks too Toki who made me a nice suit to wear. I cannot wait to see it.
So Pops says about 2 more weeks. That will be a little more than a full month. Sigh.
Prrtt to my pals

Not much time today!
Took furever to spell that title! With paws n all it is rough to type. And what is the spelling with hooman words anyhow? Where did they get the name for today? Listen to a mouse or rat! They do stoopid stuff like that.
My Ouchie is less ouching.
I still have my collar cause I do lick too hard the part that is not all healed up. It got a bit of red leaking last night. I think Pops was going to remove my Tudor collar but he saw that and said: "Rumpy-Bump you have to be more careful or we will have a longer healing time!"
So I was good last night.
Pops has a good way to pet me too! He kind of reaches on either side of my Ouchie and wiggles his hand. It feels real good! Then he does under the Tudor Collar and my neck... I am all like: Prrtt! Prrtt!
I also have a good appetite with this cold. I think I am back up to my prior weight and Pops pokes my belly with his finger and calls me "dough-boy"... I am Rumpy-Bump. Silly guy!
So the purrs have worked but I am still getting better so thanks and keep em coming!
A Prrtt! To you all!

Oh catz we shuda posted last night!
Dat Pops buzy so we buzy too!
He hadda meetin on Monday to change his job!
We doan know what dat means but he says he will have more energy iffn he get out of, hmm, he calls it "The third ring of Hell"...
What-ever... Peeple funny... He funny too...
Monday: So me I was really feeling better. Then I pulled my scab again! I was all OUCHIE Ouchie ouchie then it was ok.It happened right when Pops put treaters down do I was like. WANT, run away, WANT, run away, Want, ok lets eat. I felt better in less than a cat-nap. Pops then put that goopy on me when I was chowin down. I said "so what I chowin down" so that was that.
Pops got another book that he told me says this takes one month to heal a "deep partial thickness burn". That seems like a whole lot to mumble. Just say "Ouchie"? Peeple! Dey mean well.
Tuesday: I was just about the same as Monday. That scab I pulled was hanging so I let da Pops clip it off. Really interesting. He had a big silver thing that his paw fit in. It opened like a mouth but had no teeth? It made a "snip snip" sound and my hanging scabby was gone.
Today Wednesday: Boy dat hard to spel! Today I had some more scabby hanging. Again with the snip snip. I got my goopy and am really kind of used to it. I stopped trying to lick it. Yuck. So I am pretty fit now. I do feel funny sometimes though. Like when I first got my Ouchie! Well not that bad but I have to run a bit to make sure. Then it is gone! Like being nipped hard with no one nippin. I wonder if Buddy Bud is behind this? Pop says its "You are healing little guy. The nerves are all working again. This is good news Rump. Only one little spot of deeper burn about 3/4 by 1/2 inch. Love you little furend. In a human dude way of course"
So doods and doodettes seems I am just about there! Another week and my collar can come off. I now kind of like it! I just hope my beautiful fur grows back and I can be in TICA shows like was the plan before my ouchie. Those Purrs you all sent will get me back to normal I am sure!
PS Happy Birfdayz to Buddy-Bud, Coco, and Pops too! MOL!
Love you All! (In a man cat way of course)

Hi all my very special Furiends!
I am blessed to have you all!
And Wow! Another DDP!
I am doing pretty well over all. My burn has been progressing slowly.
They do that. Heal slowly. Pops got a book yesterday and he read it all through. He explained to to me as I was laying next to him.(I admit I was dozing for a bit cause he can get very boorish about fizzy-ol-gee and ant-atom-me) So he says my burn is a partial thickness but severe. It is mostly all down to the bottom layer so it will heal. He says there may be a bit that is almost through but... Maybe not. Time will tell. I just want to get this collar off! Gee whiz!
I feel really good. I am playing a lot more this week. I am running around with Toby and Buddy. Tim always plays nice, but, sometimes he will not give up a toy until Tim is done with it. I can get the others to give up a toy. Not Tim. Oh well. We are pals.
I have been feeling closer to my brofurs too! Before I would only really call Tim a close buddy. Now, well, I sleep with Buddy. I sit on the window with Toby. Tim says I am growing up a little. Maybe so maybe so.
Pops is busy putting all the information about my experience together to maybe help other kitties who get a burn. He thinks it will really help their caregivers too!
We are getting ready for more snow this week. There is no where to put it so Pops is worried. More for the hassle than really worried. We want it to snow cause then he may stay home and play! Come-on Snow!
Thanks again all my great furiends! It helps me more than you know! My Pops too! The brofurs are there for us but like Wow, We really love you doods and doodettes right back. Pops says we are going to have to say thanks to each and every one of you when we get a minute.
