Sleeping on my lap.
Being chased by Pounce, neighbor cats coming near our house, being brushed.
Wand toys, crunchy toys, catnip toys with string attached.
Favorite Nap Spot:
Heated bed in winter, sunny window in summer, snuggled against me at night.

Being a love bug!
He was in a litter of foster kitties. He was about 10 days old when he arrived. He was "too cute" to let go!
Benson has hyperesthesia syndrome and was a very trying youngster. He used to have crystals in his urine, but that was resolved with a wet diet. He is on a low dose of fluoxetine to help control his urinary mishaps and his rippling skin. He is a polydactyl with 23 toes. He has a happy drool. He's as sweet as they come!***On 10/21/13 along with a dental, he had a toe removed. I had been treating it for years as it would get infected, and now the infection went systemic. The bone was floating loose and not attached to anything. He is recovering well. For the time being, he no longer needs fluoxetine.

What a scary week it has been. Tomorrow I will have been at the vet for 3 whole days. They are keeping me in a staff office and watching me real close. I had an ultrasound of my bladder, and a urinalysis that showed a lot of blood. They gave me pain meds and fluids today and will check my urine again tomorrow. My mom misses me furry much:(
From my mom: Benson was having a bad spring was spraying a lot. I've had to keep him locked in one room, or let him stay in the outside enclosure and fenced yard. We catified his room last weekend by building shelving around the entire room, with steps to go up and down. I was finding puddles on the floor of his room, which was a new development. I'm so glad I took him in. I had weaned him off his anti-anxiety meds and was going to see how he would do just being himself. He was extra sweet and very playful. Even though he had one of his extra toes removed that was always infected, he still gets bi-lateral nail bed infections that have to be treated almost continuously. I'm hoping we can get my special boy back on track.

Happy Birthday to me! Mom promised me I would always be youngest of the furmily, like she is. Well I almost made it 11 years, because now we have Kingsley and Paisley. I guess that's okay, because I sleep so much, and Paisley likes to play outside with me. She's a good tree climber - I have all my claws too, but I never liked being up so high.
Mom just got back from volunteering and we're gonna hang out today. Maybe have some extra nip and nap in a sun puddle. My mouth is all healed up and I'm eating good again.
The two foster Whitesters, Dixon and Dottie had dentals this week and they're still chillin' in their room. They are very quiet and we hardly know they are here, except mom goes in there with yummy food and comes out with empty bowls.
Wishing all my furiends a pawsome day!

I sure am lucky - thanks Catster for picking me as a DDP today and thanks furiends for the gifties!!
I went to the vet yesterday and I'm feeling and looking good. Mom locked me in the computer room for a couple nights so I could chill out. There have been lots of kitties running around outside and they are even peeing on my front door. I've been spraying a lot and have to take more meds to calm me down. I go outside every morning and mark my yard so those kitties will understand this place is mine, and sometimes I just forget that I'm not supposed to do that in the house. I'll be 11 years old in a week and mom keeps hoping some day I will understand, but if not, we will continue to deal with it.
Luckily the kitty where mom volunteers decided to come out of the ceiling/floor. All the kitties are back in their foster room. We still have the two Whitesters (Dottie & Dixon) in the spare room. Dixon is now friendly and loves to be brushed and petted, but Dottie scampers under the bed when peeps visit. They went to an adoption event this week, and next week go to a college to get their teeth cleaned.
We are loving the warmer weather - Spring is finally here! We wish you a purrfect weekend!
