This morning the itchies were still here. Later on, I slept a lot so of course, I didn't itch. We'll see what the night brings.

Also, Mommy looked in a couple of Petsmarts for a cat throw that heats when a cat lays on it. Cam has one that her former Mommy got for her. Anyway, Mommy had no luck in finding one of those at Petsmart, so she ordered it from Doctors Foster and Smith online. They had one just like the one Cam has, but it looked bigger in the picture on their page unless a very small kitty was laying on it. She wanted to get me the gray leopard with black backside, but unfortunately, it was several weeks on back order. So, she ordered one just like Cam's tan leopard with tan backside.

These throws are good for kitties who need extra heat and also good for arthritic ones like Cam and I. Now, Mommy wishes they made those for humans. Perhaps she can get a large dog one for herself. MOL!

Lastly, I thank my pawsome friends who gave me purrs and concerns about my itchies and arthritis.

Anyway, I'll be on my way.

I hope everycat is having a great weekend.

"You get that itchy twitchy feeling (itchy twitchy feeling)
You start a-rockin' and a-reelin' (a-rockin' and a-reelin')
Soon your arms and legs are flapping
Like a hound dog mouth a yappin'
You're rockin' and a rollin'" from Bobby Henricks' "Itchy Twitchy Feeling that was out in 1958! Mommy says she remembers this song too.

Okay, Mommy this is NOT funny! My itching is not a rock and roll song! My itching, more than likely, is from the moist food that my sibs' have no problem with (Fancy Feast). Bail doesn't like it anyway, but the others swear by it. They love it and have no problems with it.

I do, as it makes me itch all over like I'm rockin' and a reelin' sometimes. Mommy feeds Merl, Landy and Cam first and then puts Merl's and Landy's dishes on the kitchen counter so I can't reach it. As to Cam's dish, she puts it farther into her corner so if I'd try to steal any of it, Cam would attack me.

My food RX is offered to me under supervision or in the computer room as Landy loves the stuff too and wants to steal it. He'll eat anything for sure!

I still itch, but not as much. Mommy thinks that maybe the Royal Canin SO makes me itch too. She's not too sure of that though. I'm not sure what can be done then as I'm prone to UTI's (I've had a nasty one in the past wherein I had to go the the ER).

Mommy will have to call the vet to see what to do next.

Keep the purrs coming, my friends.

Also, I wish Merl a happy 6th birthday and concat Bail on his DDP today! This calls for a chicken pawty. Unfortunately, the vet doesn't want me to have any treats either. That stinks!

Oh well, such is life!

Dr. McMichael says I have arthritis: my feet, hips and back
are tender to palpation;

I have a slight heart murmur (soft and no cause for worry);

My itching is not due to fleas (there were none on me), mites
he took a skin scrape for that and there were none either. I
possibly have a food allergy (my moist food as these itchies
were happening before I was on the Royal Canin SO. He
said those itching fits are called "hyperasthesia" (sp. ?)
wherein the cat itches so badly that they look like they're
having a seizure.


No, I'm not telling everycat to "duck and pee". This
is the bird mixed with the vegetable pea. This is one of
the RX foods that Dr. McMichael gave me to try out along
with something called "Z/D". So far, the duck and pea is
pretty good. I don't like the dry Z/D though. Yucky!!!
You know the duck and pea is good as Landy stole some
of it. He's such a pain when it comes to stealing others'
food being it Mommy's or ours!


So I could get used to eating my new food last night,
Mommy and I camped out in the computer room last night.
She wanted to monitor how much of this food I ate without
"you know who" stealing it. Of course, she had water and
my litterbox in the computer room too.


I thank the TABBIES O TROUT TOWN for their kind concats and
concerns. Mommy and I also thank all the Catster Moms
who showed their concerns for us on FB!

Lastly, the itchies have subsided. My fasting yesterday and
eating the duck and pea is so far working. Keep your paws crossed that this keeps up.

Mommy's really concerned about my compulsive licking and scratching. I favor my neck, underarms, and front feet. I itch like I have fleas, but I don't. Mommy combed me last night and other times too. Every time, she found no fleas nor their yucky dirt.

She called the vet today and will drop me off tomorrow morning for bloodwork, examination, and observation. I'll be there all day until she gets off work.

Maybe my blood work will tell what's wrong with me. She's never seen a cat itch so much and actually go into a fit of itching and scratching. It got so bad that I ran off the bed in hopes that I could shake those nasty itches off me! We don't know what's wrong with me and hope and pray it's nothing serious.

I surely could use the purrs at this time.

As to tonight, I'm doing better and I ate my dinner and took a long nap in the wicker basket near the living room vent.

Anyway, I'll keep everycat posted on the results of my vet visit tomorrow evening.

Hey everycat! First of all, I extend my belated concats to Bail and Merl for their DDP's yesterday, and Merl for his second one today! Merl's on a roll. It looks like January is a lucky month for those two. Bail had the first one on January 3rd.

Anyway, I want to mention that I had a brief "meowting" yesterday because it was so warm. Of course, I was held on Mommy's lap while she sat on the back porch wooden chair. I loved it! Of course, it could have been better had she let me down so I could sit on the porch and cruise the back yard like I used to. She didn't let me do so as I'm unsteady on my left back leg (arthritis). Not fair! She's got arthritis and drives a car and walks lopsided because of her bone-on-bone right knee.

Pawrents are the biggest hypocrites!! Do as I say and not as I do!

Anyway, today won't be as warm as it was only 30 degrees out at 6:00 a.m. I think it's supposed to be in the mid 40's. Yesterday, I think it was in the mid 60's!

Well, that's it folks! Have a pawsome Sunday, my friends,

Burrrrrrrrrrrrrr! That's what we have for temps around here. It's 19 degrees this morning and it's the coldest day of 2012 so far. December was pretty hot with temps ranging from 43 to 63 during the day.

Because of this cold, which also happened yesterday, Mommy had three cats onboard in her bed last night; me, Merl and Landy. Bail slept wherever he sleeps downstairs and Cam in her usual bathroom spot behind the door near the heat vent.

Anyway, Mommy goes back to work today. She's not looking forward to the phones ringing off the wall nor the pileup on her desk. That's what's a bummer about going back to work after a vacation or "staycation". Mommy, it's time to switch gears!

Well, that's it from me. I'm going to take my after breakfast nap.

First of all, I concat Bail on his DDP today! Way to go, bro!!

Secondly, sure Mommy got a new cat bed and placed it next to the cat tree upstairs. It replaces the old cotton one that I took to sleeping in a lot lately. So far, I slept in the new one twice for short naps.

Most of the time, I sleep in the wicker bed next to the heat vent in the living room. This is my favorite vent as it's in a little cubbyhole between a chair and a bookcase. It's like a nice warm fort to me.

Also, it's been cold as you know what the past couple days, and the weather people are predicting some snow for today. So far, I see no indication of any snow as the sun's out. It's cold enough to snow though. They're also calling for 35 mph winds! I hope we don't lose power during this!

Anyway, I'm going to let Mommy get ready to go out. She has some errands to run and then she goes back to work tomorrow. We're going to miss her terribly starting then.

Lastly, I hope everycat and their families had a pawsome holiday season. Soon it'll be Valentine's Day! Can you believe that?

I hope everycat had a pawsome Catmas! I did! It's been very busy for Mommy even if she's on "staycation". Lots of stuff has happened since my entry of Dec. 22nd.

First of all, Auntie Mary came by for Christmas dinner and to exchange gifts. On Dec. 27th, Mommy celebrated Christmas with her brother and sister-in-law. The next day, her car was in the shop. Also, the vacuum cleaner stopped working on Catmas morning due to it sucking up one of our toys.

Today, Mommy took the vacuum to the Orek shop. The owner told her there's something stuck in the motor and the only way to get it out is to take the machine apart. Mommy told him she believed it sucked up a cat toy. She's hoping the motor isn't damaged. If it is, she may as well get a new one because it'll more than likely cost as much to fix it.

Lastly, Landy, Merl and I watched "Super 8" with Mommy. It was scary, but not enough for us kitties to hide under the couch. Mommy wants to watch it again as it was so suspenseful and full of action. Great plotting too!

Well, that's about it. I'm going to close for now. I feel the sandman is approaching.

OMC! OMC! The phanton pooper strikes again! He/she decided to use the upstairs cat activity cube as a litterbox! How disrespectful! Mommy found three LARGE poopies and she believes they belong to no other cat in the household but me as I deposit those huge Maine Coon type that look like king size tootsie rolls! I'm not fessing up to this nor are any of us. You know, Bail's poop can sometimes be large too and how about Merl? Landy for sure is off the hook as his poopies are tiny! And Cam only goes in the bathroom, and she sometimes she misses her box as she's always on the run when she sees one of her bros coming toward her.

Lastly, this phantom has never been caught in the act. He's very clever not to let Mommy see him do this.

That's about it. This ongoing mystery continues . . .

It's Mommy's turn to have a birthday! Her's is the last birthday of this year and in fact it's exactly a week before Catmas. Mommy was due to be born on Catmas and decided to come early. MOL! If she didn't, her first name would have been "Carol".

Anyway, she got the tree mostly decorated and it's in the computer room. I think she'll let Bail and me look at it. I know she won't let Landy or Merl as those two are climbers. As to Cam, she's afraid to go into any other room besides and bathroom and hallway.

Also, Catmas shopping is partially done. She has to get more stuff. Hopefully, she'll have it all done soon.

Well, that's about it. I'm going to cut it short.

Purrs & Breeps to all.
