I'M NOW NEUTERED

June 13th 2006 6:45 pm
[ Leave A Comment ]

Well, I'm officially neutered.

Now I know what it's all about. The vet took away my privates! There's like an empty shell there now! I also came back with one shaved paw where they put in the IV (they gave me fluids to be on the safe side and did blood work before the procedure).

Mommy picked me up after work and by the time she got me, the anesthesia had mostly worn off. I WAS RAVENOUS and in my honors for being such a brave boy, we had a salmon party. I also wolfed down a big pile of my cat food and slugged down some water. Fasting is for the birds and I hope I don't have to go through that again. I love to eat too much.

After I ate, I peeked out the front screen door and breeped at a bluejay which sat in the red bud tree. It feels good to be back home again!

I'm tired now and I'm going to bed early.

BREEP TO ALL MY CATSTER FRIENDS.

P.S. I gained some more weight. I now weigh 6.3 lbs!

 

NEUTER DAY TOMORROW

Mommy told me that I am going to the vet tomorrow to get neutered. To me, going to the vet is no walk in the park. I've been there about three times and each time I got shots and my temperature taken. I hate both. Weighing me is okay and listening to my heart is okay.

In preparation for this event, Mommy has to have me fast. No food after 9:00 p.m. tonight. I can have water though. She's going to pull all the food for everybody tonight and leave out the water. The older guys, if they're hungry between 9:00p.m. 1o:00 p.m. will get a snack. Mommy was pressing me to eat a lot between 7:30 and 9:00 p.m. tonight. "Eat Merl eat," she told me. But of course, I wouldn't eat a lot. I had a few little pieces of chicken and a corner of the can Cammie had (salmon). I gobbled that up.

Mommy wanted me to pack in some of the dry food, but I only ate one piece.

I'll keep everybody updated on how everything went tomorrow.

Breep to all my Catster buddies and wish me luck and a speedy recovery.

TUESDAY THE 13TH

Mommy says Tuesday the 13th is the day I go to the vet again and this time it is for the "neuter". Whatever! I know Sampy and Bail already had it done and they seem quite normal to me. Anyway, I'm not too thrilled about being put in that carrier (kitty jail) and in that big metal machine with wheels on it to get to the vet. When I get to the vet, I don't like what they poke me with either. At least they don't give me a bath like Mommy did one day.

Anyway, today is Sunday and I woke Mommy up by giving her baby sandpaper kisses on her hands. My tongue is tiny so I do all these quick baby slurps on her hands while I conjur up the most raucus of all purrs in the household. Mommy, no sleeping past 6:00 a.m. is allowed! FEED ME NOW!!

Well, I got to go now. You'll be hearing from my brothers later today. I understand there will be another photo shoot of me today and p0ssibly more stuff downloaded from scrapbooks for the Bridge Kitties sites.

Anyhooo, BREEPITY BREEP TO ALL MY CATSTER FRIENDS AND HAVE A NICE SUNDAY!

BLUEJAY FOR BREAKFAST PART II

I know, Bail saw one too. I saw my bluejay when I was in the kitchen. I rose up on my haunches and peeked out the kitchen door window. There it was on the back stoop railing just teasing me. I let out a chittering noise. "kikikikikiki" and"eeeeeeep". My jaws moved very rapidly when I did this. All cats make these funny chirping noises when they see birds. It's just instinct, I guess. It comes naturally for us.

Well, not much else going on today for me except I stole the cat tree from Bail. He let me have it for a while too. That was nice of him!


Well, I'm going to cut mine short. Mommy does have to go now. My brothers rambled on in their entries today.

BREEP TO ALL MY CATSTER FRIENDS AND HAVE A NICE WEEKEND.

P.S. I'm not part dog!

 

SORRY I'M LATE AND MOMMY AND I ARE REALLY TIRED TONIGHT

Sorry, I didn't write yesterday. Catster was being washed. At least it wasn't me being washed! I'm not up to any kind of baths.

Mommy's friend Mary came over and I finally let her pet me. She said my coat feels strange (the fur all along my back is stiff and wirey feeling). Mommy and Mary said it felt like dog hair! HEY, I'M A CAT!! Where does the dog come in? My Daddy was a different kind of cat and we all know he wasn't a Maine Coon, but gee-whiz not a dog! They both were joking and laughing and said that I was a "catdog". Mommy, that's not funny!

Also, as Bail said, he and I missed seeing the raccoon (whatever that is). I did see crows before. They're ugly looking birds!

Well, Mommy wants to go to bed now. I think Sampy's sleeping now too.

Sampy will write tomorrow and hopefully Bail and I will tomorrow. Things have been a little busy around here lately.

Breep to everybody!

Merl ^..^

 

WOW!!

Mommy and I just noticed a couple of days ago that I am no. 5 of "Pawpular" diaries on the Diary Central Page! That's pretty cool! Both of us are really impressed. I'm good, I'm good! I'm a little guy and more pawpular than my brothers! Now I know for a fact that "Little guys have all the fun".

Thank you everybody for liking me!

It is evening now and Mommy had to shut the kitchen window, just when I was having my other type of fun . . . you guessed it . . . moth chasing. There were moths bouncing against the window screen on the opposite side that I was on and I tried my best to get at them. I wanted so badly to tear out the screen with my claws and teeth just to get one of those moths! But no, Mommy had to shut the window. She doesn't leave downstairs windows open when she goes to bed. She told me to come upstairs as the upstairs windows are open and the moths can fly that high too.

I took her advice. Now I will stay up late and moth watch from upstairs windows . . . all of them.

I must go now. Nighty night and breep to all my Catster Friends and my new friend Merlin who I met yesterday!!

MOMMY'S FRIEND HAS MY SISTER

June 6th 2006 6:56 pm

I found this out from Sampy today. Mommy's friend Mary called and she has a new kitten and she happens to be my sister! She named her Callie. Mommy thought she might call her Morgana, but she didn't. My sister is all black, but more hairy than I.

Oh, how I long to meet up with my sister some time. That would be nice. Since Mary and Mommy are good friends maybe it can be worked out for a little visit. Yes, it would be nice.

MOMMY'S NOTE: "I do not know how long kittens miss their parents and siblings after they are separated. Does it last a few days or do they totally forget about them soon afterwards? Do they remember them afterwards, say like after the passage of a year or more? It would be interesting to know."

Well, I have seen something interesting flying in the hallway and of course, I have to check it out. Bye for now and of course,

BREEP TO ALL MY CATSTER FRIENDS!!

PURR, PURR, PURR, GIMMEE SOME OF THAT MINI-RAVIOLI!!!

June 5th 2006 2:48 pm

Mommy, hand it over right now! I want some of that mini-ravioli you're stuffing your face with! It smells sooooo good. Let me have some, please!

MOMMY'S NOTE: I gave him a little taste, but warned him not too much because I don't want any sick kitties on my hands. Spicey food is known to do a number on the intestional tract. I dipped a very small amount on the tip of one finger and let him lick it.

Good, more, more, more! Please! Mommy told me, "no more and that's that."
No use in arguing with her anymore. I walked away.

Oh, I forgot to mention . . . Mommy went on a housecleaning spree this morning and shudder, the horror . . . she brought out that awful howling, screeching and sucking monster from its lair. Sampy, Bail and I didn't stick around to watch it do its job. Mommy cleaned all the upstairs rooms using that monster machine. Shudder, she still has to do downstairs. I hope it's not today!

Got to go now, I jumped up next to Sampy (who is sound asleep) on the blue blankie. It's nappy time!

BREEP TO ALL YOU CATSTERS AND ALL MY CATSTER FRIENDS!

Merl >^..^

 

I SAW SOMETHING OUTSIDE THE WINDOW TONIGHT

I saw something out the window tonight that I never seen before:

It was flying and the backside of it flicked on and off and glowed yellow!

Mommy said it was a lightning bug or firefly. She told me that there will be a lot of them out soon and they are beautiful but not for eating.

Anyway, I told her I would stick to regular flies and I almost got another one today.

Not much else going on except I breeped a long one for Bail to join me in a game of chase and tumble.

Got to go and play before bedtime. Sampy's sleeping and Bail is game for fun right now!


Later and breep to all!

Merl ^..^

 

CONGRATS BAIL. MY HERO!

Wow, Bail. You hit the Diary Pick of the Day again. That's four times guy. I'm envious of you. I'm also very proud and you're a big brother to look up to.

As to today, all of us are very lazy. It rained really hard about two hours ago and it is a lot cooler. Mommy doesn't have to have the AC on. Good . . . she can save some money.

Also, I was a bad boy. I follow in Sampy's footsteps and have become a Muhahahahah . . . bill chomper. I just chomped down hard on another of Mommy's bills.

Well, this one is short and sweet like me and I've got to go now.

BREEPITY BREEP TO ALL MY CATSTER FRIENDS!!

Merl ^..^

P.S. Mommy got a phone call last night that said, "MUHAHAHAHAH" real loud. It was Daddy Rob being funny! He says that when a thunderstorm is coming, "Muhahahah, it's lightning man!"
