Arrival Story: My future pawrents were thinking about getting a companion for Mallow, and because she was nervous about other cats a few people with more than one cat told them a little boy kitten would work best. One night my Dad was on the phone with a guy he knows, when the guy said "just a minute. I have to go get my daughter, she's carrying the kittens around again." Dad said "Kittens?!" and the rest is history. They had to give my fur Mom Mocha a couple more weeks to take care of me, then when I was ready they came and took me home with them. They let me sleep in their bed that first night so I wouldn't miss my Mom & siblings, and I have slept there every night since!

☆ Cat of the Month June 2012 - what an adventure! ☆
** Cat Rescue of the Month July 2012 **
Honestly, today should've been Friday the 13th, the way it started out. Mom was all over the place! First after she fed us she started up the bread maker. Then she was up & down the stairs with clothes for the washer. Then she was mixing up food in the kitchen, making something called "cookies" Well great, I thought, it's about time for my second breakfast and she's in the food room. So I followed her and she told me to (gasp) get out of the way, I just ate an hour ago! Well what does THAT have to do with anything? She was in the FOOD ROOM!
Well after a few trips in & out she figured it was time for us to eat but then she kept on going back & forth, doing some vacuuming, taking a batch of cookies out of the oven, putting a new batch in, then vacuuming some more, so of course every time she went in the kitchen I thought it was maybe lunch time now so I would be right behind her. And then in front of her. She told me (shudder) that she was doing something that didn't involve cats and I wasn't going to eat again till she's DONE!
I ask you is that any way to talk to one's little baby boy? She was really grouchy every time she had to step over me or Evie or Mojo (or all of us at once!), accusing us of trying to kill her. Why, I didn't know what to make of it all, I thought she got taken over by one of those evil Halloween gremlins or something! My Mommy is usually very nice to me (whimper).
But all is well now. She finished off everything, cleaned up all her dishes and now she's sitting down with the computer, a plate of oatmeal chocolate chip cookies and some hot apple cider with a cinnamon stick in it and watching football, and Evie is on her lap. I think the gremlins might be gone and life might be back to normal.
I am feeling good and back to eating my usual amount, in fact the last couple of days Mom let me have more than my usual amount because she said I needed to get built back up. I tried for the second breakfast again this morning, but she wasn't falling for it. Darn, I knew it couldn't last.
But it's worth it because one week to the day after hurting myself I feel 100% myself again. Mom went out and when she came back I came down the stairs to meet her for the first time in a week, chirping "did you bring me anything?" And I rolled on the floor playing with a catnip mousey and chirped for Mojo to rassle with me. Mojo wasn't sure about that, I WAS acting kind of scary to the poor little thing for a few days when everything above my neck hurt and I just wanted to be left alone. But we rassled a bit and licked one another just like we used to before. It sure is great to feel good again!
First of all, I’m going to be fine. What happened is that Mom went downstairs just for a minute, to help Dad with something. She had barely gotten there when she heard a noise from upstairs like the cat tree fell over. So she ran to see what was going on, and found me at the bottom of the stairs with my open breakaway collar beside me on the floor. I turned & raced up the stairs while she followed to see what in the world we kitties had done. Well, nothing was out of place. But Mojo & Evie were very nervous and I was under the bed. I seemed okay but nervous but I was licking my lips a lot under there. About 15 minutes later I ventured out into the living room but I was acting scared and sneezing/coughing blood every few minutes. That got Mom on the phone to the vet, pronto!
After a thorough all-over inspection, it was a couple of “open wides” that plainly showed where the blood was coming from. I have an injury to the roof of my mouth, a perfectly straight line over an inch long! Here’s what we think happened: I was on the cat tree washing myself and got my collar stuck in my jaw, with the heart-shaped name tag inside my mouth. Then while trying to loosen it, I slipped off the cat tree and possibly down the stairs too, driving the edge of my name tag into the roof of my mouth. That’s about the only scenario that explains the injury AND the collar being popped open.
The vet gave me some Clavamox to take twice a day to make sure it doesn’t get infected, and said to keep me on soft food and keep a close eye that the bleeding doesn’t pick up again & otherwise, he wants to see me in a week. I feel a lot better today, I’ve been napping a lot but I'm not drooling blood anymore and have felt well enough to clean up all the mess I made on my fur yesterday.
