the grass really is greener...

Hi everyone. My full story is on my page. I am a little guy, but I am getting better & growing stronger every day. How that grass got in my sinus, only I will ever know, but I think it was a lucky thing - it got me a home! The vet told my mom that the pneumonia was hitting my lower lungs, and a few more days I probably would not have made it. I am doing good, only a few more days of antibiotic, and basically play & eat as much as I want. I met the other kitties here. Maizy sniffed me & hissed. She pretty much keeps to herself. Mr. Tigger is sometimes nice, and sometimes smacks me & yells at me. And yet he let me eat from his dish. Smitty followed me around sniffing me for a while. We are starting to play together. Mom is watching him though because a few times, he has pinned me and grabbed my throat. I squeaked that it hurt & mom hollered at him. I hope he isn't mad at me, I am trying real hard to be good & stay out of everyone's way. Mom says it will take a little time, but it will be ok. My favorite thing is for mom to hold me. I put my paws on her face & give her kisses all the time. I fall asleep on her lap almost every night. I am a happy kitty & I know I am very lucky. Mom got to tell my catmom Inky that I was safe & would be taken care of, and then a few days later, she disappeared. Mom thinks she is at the bridge probably, cause she came every day for food & to meow at mom. But at least maybe she knows that I am ok. Well, I know mom has been snapping more pictures, and there will be plenty to say so more later. tiny squeaky meows, Felix

 

howdy!

Hi everyone! Just stopping in to say how well I am doing! I had my first shot, and I am growing like a weed. Momma says I eat like a pony, not a kitten! I am starting to play, and run around a little. I am pretty quiet though & I love to lay on my momma & fall asleep while she rocks me. I still cannot seem to meow though. I can squeak if I really try. Mom hopes there is nothing else wrong, that it is just from being sick. I go back in another week for my next shot, and mom says something about losing my boy marbles? I dunno. I do know that I love it here. There is so much to explore & toys to play with. I get food for my tummy whenever I am hungry - I do not have to fight for it or anything. I have warm soft places to sleep, and mom said this weekend I get a bath & to learn about something called a brush. I already had my nails cut & I think I did pretty good. I only squeaked once. For some reason, I still cannot meow. I open my mouth to, but nothing comes out. That is partly why momma named me Felix, cause he was a cartoon in silent films - and I am a silent kitty.

 

squeak!

hi all! I get a bath today - mom says cause it is warm out & I can go on the screenporch to warm up & dry off. I haven't even been hiding under her bed so much. I sit out in the kitchen or I stop in by Nana's room to visit. I still love to snuggle on mommas lap at nite. The Dad has been playing with me using Da Bird & a fish pole that Smitty says is way cool. We were playing together too! I was playing in the crinkle rolly tunnel, and Smitty got a little excited & reached in & pulled me out by my neck...mom tried hard not to freak out, and I did squeak, but then Smitty let go & washed my face. We always sit next to each other waiting for dinner. Can you believe that? We get dinner EVERY nite! in a SILVER BOWL! (mom says it is stainless) it's pretty & it's FULL of this yummy smelly kitten chicken food that is all I care! no more eating off the ground! I still cannot believe it! I feel great - no more breathing troubles, and no more snotty face or eyes. Mom says I will stay on the lysine yet, but it doesn't really bother me. Well, I guess it is bath time for me..mom says she has kitten shampoo that smells like baby powder..can't I just smell like a kitty mom? I am a little nervous cause Smitty ran the other way when he heard the word bath...but momma says it is not often & I gotta get all the yucky outside dirt off me now that I feel better. and that I will feel even better too. I will let you know how it goes!

 

baths are not cool

well...I had a bath Saturday. Mom was real quick, but it was scary. I was shaking so much she felt me vibrating through all the towels. She felt bad, but there was so much dirt that came off me with the rinse water, she thought maybe I would end up not being a black kitty after all! Silly mom. I looked like a drowned rat with my skinny tail. But now, mom says I am softer than velvet & so shiny & clean. I feel pretty good too - I attacked that milk ring & killed it - I made sure mom was safe from that bad ol milk ring! All I gotta get under control is the pooting. Mom says I can clear a room when I use the box. So maybe it is my tummy adjusting to good food still. I eat only kitten food, 99% wet, with only a few kitten kibbles as a treat at night. When I was outside us feral cats got fed the best food mom could afford, but with 8 of us out there, it was 9 Lives canned and Boots & Barkley dry. So I guess my system is still adjusting to higher protein. So while my butt might be a bit stinkish, my fur smells like baby powder! Smitty even helped lick the water off to dry me! He seems to be getting better, and playing more gentle. I even played with Maizy, which Smitty tells me is an honor she rarely bestows! And Tigger let me lay next to him on the couch!
Well, time for a nap before dinner...squeaks & silent meows, Felix

 

before & after

Mom is so glad she took that picture on my gotcha day. Each time she looks at it, well it is hard to believe how terrible I looked. And that picture is after she got the grass out of my nose. I was even worse. Now my fur is so glossy & shiny. I am playing more with Smitty, and he is much more gentle. Mom even caught me jumping on him to start a smack-down! I am still pretty laid back for a kitten, but that is probably my personality. In the morning, I wait my turn for breakfast, and then I either lay on mom's lap or doze in the little wood bed in the kitchen while she has her coffee. Then I get a good pet, and she goes into her office to work. I go & see what she is doing, and then I will pop into Nana's room to say hi, and nap on her rug. I have been having fun with the furry mousies & have killed several milk rings to keep mom safe. Mom says I purr louder than a jet engine, even though I do not make a sound when I try to meow. I still can only squeak a teeny bit. Mom will ask the vet, but she wonders if maybe from the grass blade it scarred my throat or something...it doesn;t matter, I love to purr anyways, and I am happy. So very happy in my new home. I am not even afraid of The Dad, and he can give a good chin rub too! Next week I go back for another shot, so I will update then. no meow, squeak!

 

still so scared

I keep trying real hard to be a brave boy, but it is not so easy. Every time I hear a loud noise, it really scares me. The ice cube dispenser on the fridge, the snap of the cat food can opening, car doors. I even jumped when the mail slot opened. And zoom down stairs I go. Mom found my super secret hidey place though, and I cannot get hurt there. Actually Smitty showed her where I was. I also crawled into one of the cat carriers that was open in the laundry room. I have been coming upstairs to eat, and mom tries to play with me while I am up here to make it a positive place again, and gives me food & I got some freeze dried chicken treats! I am not the same kitten I was a week ago, and it has made mom so angry at them. She says that here she offered me a home to be happy & safe in, and they took that away from me. I really hope that I will not stay this frightened - I hate to see Mom worrying like this.
mom here:
I am doing everything I can think of. We all move very quiet, I try not to make any loud noise. I hold him & pet him. He did fall asleep on me Sunday night, but he would not sleep upstairs in his favorite little box. Along with the noise, I am pretty sure that Felix was in the bed in the kitchen, as he loved to nap there. When I looked at the blanket in the box, there was glass kind of in a semi-circle, which tells me that he was probably in it, and they threw the candleholder so hard, I mean the glass was everywhere, some must have landed on him. So putting all that together for a 4 month old baby to go through- ohh I could just scream. The other kits are a bit spookish, but not too bad. I put the Feliway in the basement, but I thought about a calming collar - I don't know if they can be used for a kitten though. If anyone has any ideas to help my poor little boy, PLEASE let me know. He was just starting to feel relaxed & comfortable too, and it is even worse than when he was first here. We lost all that progress & then some. I just want him back to the happy go lucky kitten he was.

 

Blimey!

Mom says each day I get a little better. I keep coming upstairs alot more, and when I do go downstairs, I am not hiding in the back of the fridge anynmore. I like to nap in the big carrier in the laundry room like my own little cave. I don't seem to jump and startle quite as much. Everyone is still being very quiet & talking to me alot when I come upstairs. I even got some nip & wow did I like it! Mom did not think I would get the kittybuzz on it yet, but I did. She thinks that will help too cuz it is a feel-good thing. I got some Calming Treats too, and they are yummy. They have vitamin B, L-theanine & colostum in them meant to relax, so yesterday & today I ate one. It's not like mom wants to drug me up or anything, but she is just trying to help me feel better. I even laid on the bed for a while (she set me on it cuz I can't jump up there yet) but I stayed for a while! I also think that I was probably picking up everyone here being upset with everything too. So mom says once the safe doors get put in, she will feel better & safer and Nana too - so that should even help more. Thank you everyone for the gifts! talk to you soon! silent meows, Felix the Brave

Yesterday was a beautiful day, and mom had to return most of the traps she borrowed, and did some more outside stuff. I lounged on the screened porch & watched Tigger watching mom. We will be on to thank everyone & look at all the goodies prob tomorrow, but I wanted to do this quick silent meow-out to everyone!

I went to the vet today & got my rabies shot. I am official! I am now 5lb! so the vt said to mom that I can have my "boy parts" removed. I will get a microchip then too. Mom is waiting for my insurance to be approved, so that it can count towards the deductible, but I should be going this month. I am doing better - I howled the whole way to the vet's office! Thank you so much to everyone for the balloons, and the Cat o the Day wishes. Mom wants to thank everyone individually, but it has been a bit crazy round here, so we at least wanted to say THANKS! Monday, she takes the last feral kitten Jett, to her foster momma. This lady is taking the other 2 - she is awesome! squeaks to all for an excellent weekend!
