This isn't really about me, but it does involve my kitty-mom & my Momma thought it was cute.
Yesterday was a nice sunny day, and Mom & Nana were heading out to a Pancake Breakfast held in support for Relay for Life. The Dad's cousin has a team & is very involved in this wonderful charity since her brother (The Dad's other cousin) passed from it over 10 years ago.
Anyhow, Mom fed the ferals, and the whole time was calling them & talking rather loud and they did their dance & a few meow & 1 that loves to be petted got his pets. She then turned & under the bush by the fence, was a black cat laying down stretched out - not moving. It was my momcat Inky. "OOOHHH nooooo" says Momma. She walked over there & Inky was laying on her tummy with her head on her front paws stretched out, eyes closed. Mom thought "she is breathing, but slow - oh no she is dying" Then she knelt down & gently touched the top of Inky's head. With that - Inky opened her eyes - looked at Mom - eyes got HUGE & sat up so fast & shot towards the end of the yard. So fast that Mom almost fell backwards! it seems that she was sleeping so soundly in the sun that she did not even hear Mom approach & they scared the catnip out of each other! Inky was down at the end of the yard looking at Momma like "What are you doing?" She was there this morning waiting for breakfast perfectly fine. Mom was laughing though, and very glad it was a happy ending!!

I am bigger! Mom says I am all legs though! I am doing ok. I am still pretty timid and nervous around The Dad. I am getting better, and he tries so very hard to be my friend. Mom thinks it is because he has a really deep voice & clompy work boots. He gives me treats though, so I know he will not hurt me. I still seem to have trouble with my leg & paw. Almost like the wrist part is deformed. I hunch my back alot too - mom says I look like a jack knife. But I seem happy & even though I do not meow I squeak ALOT! After Smitty has his tooth out, then I will go to the vet to see about it. I had xrays, but mom wonders if maybe I have nerve damage, or that it may be coming from my back spine. She says that she knows if I did not come to live here, I would not have survived outside. Between my pneumonia, and this leg issue, I did not have good odds. But I am a happy boy now! I am 7 lbs already!! Mom has pics to show how big I am, to put on here next week. See you soon!


Happy Valentine's Day

Mom says I can post quick. Look my white spot is a little heart for Valentine's Day! Mom did not get the chance to let me ask a girlcat to be mine, but that is ok - I figure all you girlcats can be my Bunch-o-Valentines!.
I wanted to tell you guys about these awesome things mom found me. They are by Pioneer Pets, and they are called Nipsticks.
Three mesh sticks about 4 inches long, stuffed & I mean stuffed with finely ground catnip. You can chew on them & it releases the nip. Apparently they are to be lightly chewed & batted around, so Smitty says, but NO WAY! I blasted through all three within a couple weeks, and then they were all flat & mom did not want me to start eating the plastic, since apparently I am a chewing toy destroyer. So she took them away...sigh, but maybe if I am really good she will get me some more! I am growing tall & my fur is getting longer & is so shiny. I even can meow a teeny bit! I still seem to be having issues with my paw & I still don't play alot like a kitten should. I run sometimes, but kind of oddly, and I do not jump up on things much (I know that is not bad right?)I seem to walk a little kind of hunched. She is trying to get a video so the vet can see, but I am not cooperating..maybe for some nipsticks.....otherwise, I am a happy kitten! oh yeah mom had to order another Da Bird, cuz I chewed the last feather up & chewed the end of the wand off. (she forgot to put it away after we played) woops


That was awesome!!

This Christmas thing was great! I got to know the human sister who came home from far away Seattle, and the human brother was here too. He is here more often as he only lives about 1/2 hour away. They were both here the day we had turkey, but there was other kids here that were very loud, and I was much too scared to say hello to anyone. It was much more quiet & calm now. So we got the big kitty tree that I love, and Nana got us some treats. Smitty got his own Yeoww fish toy since I stole his Banana & tore it up, and Maizy got a new cardboard scratcher that she even let us all take a turn on. I was so excited because see I had this little mousie toy that squeaked with a real mousie sound when you played with it. Well I played so much with it that I tore it up & momma had to take it away so I would not swallow the battery. I did not get a mousie, but a chirpie birdie toy!!! He sings & chirps when I hit him! I made sure the other night to play with him at about 3am - so that momma would know for sure how much I love my birdie..ALOT.
I am happy, warm & get so many pets. This was my lucky year that is for sure - it can only get better!
Please everyone have a safe New Year!

This Christmas tree thing is great! I love to lay underneath it, and sometimes I chew on it, but I got in trouble for that... We got our present early - a cat tree! I LOVE IT. Mom put it by the kitchen window so we can see out. The little table is still there, just moved down, so there are more spots to look out into the back & see the birdies, and stuff. Only me & Tigger use it right now. I am growing & getting more confident. Mom is kind of concerned though, cause she went to clip my nails, and once again, I flipped out when she squeezed the paw on my bad leg, and I bit her really hard. And growled too. She is not angry with me - but not sure if it is still my leg, or if I just do not like my foot touched. She managed to clip the couple longer ones, but this needs to be resolved for sure. The other kitties do not make a fuss, so I should not - mom knows how to teach me about it. So she will try again, and perhaps call the vet. I had an xray of my paw taken, and vet thought my toe was broken too - but the specialty vet squeezed every toe, and I did not make a sound. Maybe I was too scared? Does any one else flip out like that for claw cutting? It is just weird cause I am so quiet & meek - I have to try real hard to even squeak. hmm mom says maybe she should have named me Jeckle or Hyde! Well, off to my perch by the window!


there's a tree in my house!

Wow Smitty was right. Momma & The Dad left on Friday & came home with this big green thing that smells like forest. It is huge! I was scared at first, but after playing chase with Smitty & jumping around underneath it, I like to sit under it. Momma will be putting the lights on it today, and then Smitty says it is very pretty. I did get in trouble, because I keep chewing the branches. It is a Noble fir with teeny needles, but Momma says NO FELIX - NO CHEW!

Oh and we got our present early! We got a cat tree!! I love it! There was some fighting for it on Friday night, but things have settled down. Momma says she is gonna try & move it by the window in the kitchen as there is room, and move our little table over.
All I know is that I am so happy. My leg feels better, and I get pets all the time, and Momma tells me she loves me so much & calls me "the best little black cat in the world" I look out the kitchen window & sometimes I see my 2 sisters that are still outside. Momma gives them warm food 2 times a day, and they have nice houses filled with straw to sleep in. They are twice my size! I was so very sick, and I am sure I would not have made it if Momma did not save me. I would not be here to enjoy the good life - I am a lucky boy. I do my best everyday to be good, and to give Momma the slow blinky eyes that tell her I love her too. My wishes all came true. I hope that wishes come true for all my friends.


kitty zooom!

Well, Thanksgiving was a little traumatic for me - too loud, too many people. Even though we were all sequestered, I jammed myself into a corner & did not move until Momma lifted me out to eat. But now that it is quiet again, holy smokes have I been finally acting like a kitten! My leg does not seem to hurt, and I am running around all over. I figured out that if I can get onto the kitchen table, I can run over & jump onto the small table that momma has by the window. There is a soft rug on there for us to look out the window in comfort, and when the blind are up, the sun shines right on that rug (mommas are so smart) I have seen the other kitties up there but I could not get up there before. Now there are boxes around that make jingly noises, and Smitty says something about a tree inside. Really? I want that tree! I am getting tall & lanky and my fur is so shiny, Nana tells mom that I look like satin. Mom says that the Calming Treats are helping me too, and I get these little soft treats with DHA & Omega oils for kitten growth & brain development. I am a very happy kitten & my life is so good! Still no meows, but I can squeak! I open my mouth as if I am meowing, but nothing comes out..unless it is a supersonic meow...hmm maybe I am a super hero kitten? yeah SUPER FELIX! eeeep!


I truly am a pirate

I was not such a good boy today. I was resting on Nana's bed (she has a fleece cover on there for us & heated blanket & she turns it on just for us) And Smitty jumped up too, and then Momma gave him a brand spanking new Yoww banana. Well, I have been playin with the sad ol beat up one, so well, I hate to say I just walked right over & took it away from Smitty. He did not even holler at me either. So I chomped on it a bit, and momma said that it was not very nice for me to do that, and then I decided lunch would be more fun anyways. It just smelled sooo catnippy I could not help myself. Momma says that she has to watch herself cuz I am so cute that I am gonna get away with stuff I shouldn't. Hey not my fault I am a cute little black cat right? Mom can touch my paw a little more without me freaking out, and she was rubbing my leg gently and I did not flinch as much. It seems to slowly be a little better. Guess I need some more napping on Nana's bed! thank you for the potp - it is working!

First I want to thank all of my friends for the purrs - they helped! The nice dr at this place said that the fracture I have is very small & he did not feel that it needed to be splinted. He feels that more of my pain is from a pulled muscle or tendon that must have happened at the same time. I have to rest as much as I can & try real hard not to wratle, and see where things are in a couple weeks. If it is not better, then we will prob have an MRI. He even gave mom his email to keep him updated. This place was amazing - momma says it is bigger & prettier than some people dr offices she has been to! They have dermatology, cardiology & all sorts of specialties there. If any of you are in the Chicagoland area - keep this place in mind. We are on the south side of Chicago, and it was about 1 hr 15 min from us in Buffalo Grove. And, the consultation was nowhere near as pricey as Mom was expecting. It was $82. Which for a specialist was not bad at all & hopefully my insurance will pay for 80%. So I just have to try & be good & quiet and get better. Thanks again!


I just can't catch a break -news about my leg

The big snip is all done - not so bad - Doc gave me some pain meds that woooo my pupils were huge & I was a bit woozy all day.

When Dr called to tell mom that my surgery was done, she told her that I was showing pain in my foot, elbow & shoulder. She asked mom if it was ok to do xrays. (THe extra little claw was just a corn or callous - doc popped it right off). However, it seems that at some point I fractured the growth plate in my elbow & maybe my toe. Since that could affect my leg growth, I have to go see an orthopedic specialist. Dr said she felt better to have an expert opinion, since I am growing like a weed. Hopefully I won't need surgery, maybe a splint, maybe nothing at all. But I am in pain for sure, so something needs to be done. I go tomorrow morning. The place is an hour away, but mom says she will take me wherever I need to go. (Here's to hoping the insurance will cover this) She will have to use the $ she started to save for Maizy's endo. But since Maizy seems to be holding steady - it should be ok.

Boy in my short 6 months I have had a blade of grass in my nose that caused a URI, pneumonia, got frightened so bad from the men that broke in my house, had my parts removed, and now a broken leg. Dr said it could have happened when I was wrastling with Smitty, or if I jumped down off something the wrong way or even stretched wierd. So keep your paws crossed for me again. Mom will let you know the results.
