Calvin In Charge

Some Firsts!

Well, pals, you'll never believe this, but I actually finished a bowl of food without walking away and making Mawmee follow me with the bowl. And she even snuck in another spoonful of food, and I ate that too! She was very happy about it.

Newman is always right there to help me. Wait until you see the picture of him encouraging me to eat - you will MOL!

And I've got another first to tell you about. Since I've been going to the vet every week, and I got chemo three times, and I have a bunch of medicines and fluids that I take every day, Mawmee says I have to help pay the bills. Apparently, cancer is expensive.

So, I've decided to have my own line of floof collars in Mawmee's Etsy shop. They will be called Calvin's Collars. They are crocheted, so they are soft, and they slip over your neck. The thing that makes them different than the other floof collars is the special cat charm/button on the front of the collar. These will be made for photo sessions and stuff, and to keep your neck warm if you get cold in the winter.

I guess I'm really special, and Mawmee wanted to have something like Morgan has with his beds. I checked with Morgan first to make sure he wouldn't be mad that I stole his idea. His beds are to help pay for the eye surgery he had. He thought it was a cool idea, so that is how I'm going to help out around here.

A couple of these collars are ready to go, so if you're interested, be looking for them at The Cat in the Clover!

Oh, we know how expensive cancer and other kitty illnesses can be, Calvin. The old WS says that they have put more in vet bills on the Care Credit card in the past 18 months than what her new car is costing. It's not a cheap car, either!

Oh Calvin that is great that you ate so good. I'm eating my bowl of food in several sittings. It's more fun when you make Mom run and put it in front of you again and again. I can't wait to see the special floof collars. As soon as I get rid of this neck wrap I definately need one to keep me warm in this cold Iowa winter.
Purrs to you.

Calvin, happy to hear that you are eating. I have been catching alot of mousies lately. Do you think you could sell those in the etsy store? Maybe to cats who are too lazy to hunt - like my brofur, MOL. One mouse is on our patio right now. If anyfur wants it just let me know. I am charging a kwazillion dollars for it - for Calvin.
Seriously, I need a floof collar, Timo has one, I want one too! Green is my fafurrite color.
