Hi there! My name is Sassy5...I am the 5th Sassy cat of the Sassy series. No, my mom isn't hard on cats, Sassy4 was 19 when he went to the big ole litter box in the sky. All of us Sassy cats have been grey short haired kitties. =^-.-^=

Okay so I've told you all what my name is NOW. But my mom is threatening me with a name change! Why, you ask? Well it started earlier this year when I ended up with a throat infection. My mom took me to the vet on a Saturday morning, and it turned out that the infection was being caused by my teeth. So she made an appointment to have my toothypegs cleaned on the Tuesday. Mom brought me home with pain killers and antibiotics, set me up with my own litter box, food and water in her bedroom so my brothers, Thunder Paws Chunky Butt Moose and Harry Potter Wizard Cat wouldn't bother me. Mom went out for the day to visit her 89 yr old auntie and I just curled up under the covers to sleep the day way. =^-.-^=

When mom came home later that day, she came to check up on me and BOY, was she surprised. One side of my face was swollen and my eye was starting to pop out of my poor widdle head. I felt like utter poop!!!! Mom rushed me to the emergency vet clinic where they found out I was dehydrated and running a temp. So they put me on intervenous antibiotics and fluids. I ended up staying in the emerg. Saturday and Sunday night. Turns out my teeth problems caused an abscess to develope behind my eye. This is what was causing my eye to buldge out of my face. I couldn't even close it any more! So my mom made arrangements to have my dental surgery moved to Monday morning and they cleaned my teeth and had to extract two of them. This helped the abscess to drain and after several days of feeling like I've been hit by a big ole truck, I got better and now you'd never know that I was ever sick. All of this cost my mom $1,700 so now I get to the name change. =^-.-^=

Well, my mom is telling everyone that she is changing my name to Flat Screen, because she could have bought a really nice big flat screen TV with what it cost to get me better. Mom tells everyone that she has a 3D flat screen TV and if only I would stand still so she could watch me!!! Comedian? I think not!!! Don't give up your day job, mom!!! *meow giggle snort purr* =^-,-^=

So now let me tell you about last weekend. It was early Saturday morning and my mom was still in bed. She heard me growling and figured my brothers were bugging me. (they do that a lot) I was under the dresser, so mom got up and punted the other two out of the bedroom and closed the door. I came out from under the dresser and couldn't walk on my back foot. You know when you humans get a toe cramp and one toe is moved over to the side of your other toe? Well that's what my back foot looked like. So, again, mom took me to the vet and it turned out that I had dislocated my toe!!!! Apparently this is very rare for a cat to do. Aren't I a clever boy!!!! *kitty wink* So the vets put my toe back into the joint and sent me home. Another $335.00 vet bill for my mom. So new name now...Flat Screen plus PVR!!!! My mom is a riot, huh????? NOT!!!!! But she does take very good care of my brothers and I and makes sure that we are all healthy and happy. She also has now invested in pet insurance!!! *meow giggle snort* I love my mom!!!! =^-.-^=
