Its been hot and sticky here today and its going to be another sticky night. I am in the cat house as I had an accident on the bed, well, when you gotta go...... but dad wasnt impressed. What do they need bed covers for anyway ????? its too hot!!!
Maizie is drinking a bit more today but she still will not eat for herself so mom is still syringe feeding. She is looking more brighter and beginning to chat to mom a bit. Maizie is going to the vets tomorrow evening to see how she is doing and to have that stick thing up her bottom to check her temperature. We just wish she would eat for herself.
Mom had to go to work today, so she hasnt been home long, she said all the cats at work are fine and 4 of them will be going in for dentals on thursday.

Trivia

Cats can "read" your moods. If you're sad or stressed, you may also notice a difference in your cat's behavior.

Cats knead with their paws when they're happy.

A cat will almost never "meow" at another cat. This sound is reserved for humans.

Cats do not think that they are little people. They think that we are big cats. This influences their behavior in many ways.

Contrary to popular belief, the cat is a social animal. A pet cat will respond and answer to speech, and seems to enjoy human companionship.

Cats can purr to express pain or fear in addition to expressing pleasure. Female cats often purr when they are in labour, as well as when they are nursing their kittens.

A cat's sense of smell is 14 times stronger than a human's.

Besides their noses, cats can smell with something called the "Jacobson's organ", located in the upper surface of their mouths. This is what cats are using when they scrunch up their eyes and open their mouths after sniffing something intently.

The nose pad of a cat is ridged in a pattern that is unique, just like the fingerprint of a human.

A cat cannot see directly under its nose. This is why the cat cannot seem to find tidbits on the floor. Unless your called Blizzard!!!!

Cats have 32 muscles in each ear.

Cats respond most readily to names that end in an "ee" sound.

Cats have about 100 different vocalisation sounds. In comparison, dogs have about 10.

These are some of the most interesting tidbits you've come up with yet!
Hope all goes well with Maizie at the vets tomorrow. That she's drinking some again is at least somewhat of a plus. Hopefully the food part will follow soon.
How are YOU doing? Is the itching better now?
