I'm shedding big time, everycat! Ever since Mother Nature turned up the outdoors thermostat, my floof is steadily falling out in big balls. Mommy has to vacuum extra because of this or in between, pick up by hand, said gray balls of floof.
Mommy calls this the springtime shed. It's not only affecting me but Joss too. Mommy has to pick up black balls of floof. The shorhair's (Merl and Landy) fur only comes out when combed or when they get in a tussle with each other or the rest of us. Also, Joss has lost a lot of her curly red ruff.
Also,we had the windows open last week because it was warm. Unfortunately, Friday's nasty T-storm ended that pleasure. The cold will be with us until Wednesday. It's been around 60 degrees this weekend when it reached into the 70's last week.
Anyway, sorry for not writing in some time. We've been busy and Mommy's schedule has been tight and she's not been feeling well lately. She made an appointment with her primary care physician because her blood pressure has been rising. She was given an EKG which showed a lot of heart palpitations. The doctor said they looked benign but wanted to double check so she had her come back for an echocardiogram on Saturday and to wear a heart monitor for 24 hours.
Mommy takes the thing off in an hour and a half and can't wait. It's the size of her IPhone and she has wires hooked up to her which are taped onto her chest and sides. She also has to wear a belt to hold the device in place so it won't drop anywhere or us kitties get at it to chew the wires. Also, the tape is itching her like crazy. She thinks she has an adhesive allergy.
Anyway, Mommy needs purrs for her heart. She's a constant worrier and prays that she doesn't have heart disease like Sampy or worse. If these palpitations turn out to be arrythmias (sp?. . . none of us can spell this tricky word) she will need to be put on some medication to help keep these at bay.
Well, that's about it. I'm going to turn up my motor for Mommy. All of us have and we've been hanging around her whenever she's not on the computer.
Purrs & Breeps,

Sending lots of purrs to your Mommy and hoping everything is okay with her heart. You sure have a lot of floof at your house - we're loving the new pictures, especially the one of you as a little kitten being held by your Mommy - so cute!
We are all shedding too with the weather change...when I was at the vet it was flying everywhere!
We are purring and praying for your Mom, we hope she will be OK!!!
hugs from us
