Chief Meowstress of the House

Farewell to my Marbles....

After an incredibly loving, all too short 15 years together, Marbles crossed the Rainbow Bridge on July 16, 2014.

She had been diagnosed last November with a lung tumor, arthritis and kidney failure...so I made sure she had Quality time. Love, play, great food and as pain free as could be managed.

She was a well-loved fluffy friend with a heart of gold and a craving for the 'nip. She was a beautiful kitty, loving and very goofy too!

I fulfilled that uncomfortable final promise I make to each of my pets. When their life is no longer of good quality and (hopefully) without crisis causing them undue stress I will honor their life.

Marbles is at Peace, romping without pain and catching up with all the dogs and cats I have loved over the years.


When I got home from the vet's office my condo felt emptier than ever. Amazing how 'big' those feline personalities can be.

Eventually I will honor her memory by rescuing a bonded pair of cats, but I need to heal a bit first.

 

Lovely gifties from friends and an update

I knows Ebony sent me a Big Hug and a Cutie giftie, but I gotz a couple others and I can't figure out how to find out who sent them.

I love them, hugs make me feel cozy and that is extra special thing since I have a bit of trouble feeling warm enough any more. I love snuggles and hugs WAY more than I used to and it makes Mom happy. Tho the reason I love them more does not.

Mom gotz my medicine in TUNA flavor this month and I like it lots better than the other stuff. Tho I still purrtend to not want it and make her play chase! HEE!

But I have a lot of good days so far, we focus on that.

 

I don't like medicine...even if it tastes like CHICKEN!

Early in November, a few weeks before TURKEY DAY, Mom took me to the v-e-t office. I was not acting like myself, said mom.

My favorite v-e-t and the techs who love me were there. After years of working to maintain a certain weight, I shocked everyone by revealing I had lost a 3rd pound this year! My mom started sounding like she was gonna cry after that...

We had to wait a couple minutes for the Dr. but there was a window I wanted to look out of while we waited! But I could not jump up like I used to, so Mom gently picked me up and we watched a squirrel, a couple birdies and some breeze together. I have Mom trained pretty well.


The news after they took all kinds of pictures of me (all black & white) and that is when they saw the bad thing in my chest. I also have something kinda wrong with my kidneys. All this made my Mom really sad.

Now I have medicine to help keep me from hurting and Mom is feeding me all kinds of little treats to help me keep weight on. We snuggle a lot more than ever now, I like that best of all.


Don't forget to love your people and fur-siblings all the time!

 

Did you know I am a mentor to DOGs?

I can't believe it either!

But I have been PURRfectly busy with a Foster Doggy from the Humane Society of Tacoma & Pierce County.

Mom brought home a new student for me a couple months ago.
My student is a Pitbull x Bulldog x maybe Boxer.
She is Orange-y red brindle and white...and has a tiny bit of an underbite.
And most confusing....barely any tail!!!

She dared to try to keep me away from MOM on the 2nd day she was here. Clearly she did not understand the rules here.

Well, I have to go get my rest, tomorrow is another day of teaching!

 

So honored! Best day all YEAR!

Another reason to be feline and proud of it! I don't gots to take baffs that I don't give to me own self!

Miss Cami went with mom to a doggy baff store...she telled me all 'bout getting wet from snout to tail!!! Can you believe it?
I do gotta admit, she looks bootiful...for a goggie!

I am still trying to teach her manners with felines, but she keeps after me...and I his and hiss again. No dignity...at all.

I have had a very serious job for the last few years. Mom has appointed me Chief Pawsitive Kitty Etiquette Instructor.

Why, you ask? Because I am purrfect for that role **and** she keeps bringing young dogs into the house to raise for a place called Summit Assistance Dogs.

I paw-thwack and hiss as needed to ensure the d-o-g learns appropriate manners with us superior beings, aka felines.

So fur, I have trained 4 goggies! And tutored a couple others who needed to learn about city living..whatever that is! Two of 'my' puppies have been working for their living and a third one is about to start her career.
The fourth goggie developed elbow dysplasia and is now a pet goggie.

Mom tells me she is proud of my help and my pay includes nightly back massages and headbonks.
