LANDY PIERCED MY EAR!!

December 2nd 2012 4:38 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ]

It's true that Landy pierced my left ear! And no, Mommy isn't letting me wear one of her gold earrings!

It happened like this:

Earlier in the week, Landy and I got into a nasty altercation. It took place while Mommy was awake and her alarm for 6:00 a.m. didn't go off yet. We fought and I pinned Landy down and I wouldn't let him go. He then bit me on my left ear! It hurt like crazy and I let out a loud screeching meow. Mommy got out of bed and found Landy and I with our fur standing on end and balls of my black fur coating the hallway rug. She also found some dewclaws from us (this happens after nasty fights). Mommy told me she thought of the bad fights that Bail and Yingy got into a couple of times.

Anyway, She looked at both of us and saw no wounds but a bald spot on my left ear. She thought Landy scratched my ear and pulled some fur out. A couple of days went by and on Friday, my left ear had a scab on the front and back of it. She then called the vet and set up an appointment for me.

The vet cleaned my poor ear with an antiseptic and the scab fell off. She said the would was a bite and she believes it went all the way through (piercing) and had healed shut on the back portion because she couldn't see all the way through the hole. I was prescribed Clavamox 1 and 1/2 pills twice a day for a week, and also some ointment to put on my ear twice a day for one week.

My ear is looking better already. Also, it doesn't hurt as much as it did. Mommy told me she was very proud of me as I take my pills in a pill pocket like a mancat. I also let her put the ointment on my ear with no problems.

As to poor Sampy, he has a messed up eye and accompanied me to the vet the very same day. He needs ointment in his right eye twice a day for a week.

What a CATastrophy! It cost Mommy a whole bunch of money to take care of this too.

Question: Does anybody want Landy! I'll be the first to boot him out of the house if he tries to pierce my ear again!!

Anyway, this is a learning experience for me to never, ever pin down Landy as he BITES!!

I hope everycat had a better week than I did. Hopefully, the rest of December will be good around here.

Merl

 

WELL, WELL, WELL . . .

Our Catmas pages are pretty much done. I don't understand why Joss' page is all animated and glittery. I suppose it's a girl thing. Us boy's pages don't glitter too much even though they're supposed to. Is that our computer or what?

Anyway, I'm coming more out of my shell. I let Auntie Mary pet me twice. I also stayed downstairs and didn't hide under the bed like I usually do. Mommy and Auntie Mary are so proud of me. I'm proud of me too 'cause I'm not being such a wimp anymore.

Lastly, I love the way my page looks. I'll give Mommy a big concats for staying home and doing our pages today! Usually, she goes out shopping on both days.

Well, I'm going to keep it short. I hope everycat had a pawsome Thanksgiving!

I ALSO LOVE MY NEW SISTER!

Joss and I get along pretty good. We share the windowsill perch a lot as you can see by the second pic on her page and also on main pic on FB. She and I also play "high fives" frequently. I like her so much that I've let her have the code for the psychedelic panther pic for her page. Of course, she calls it "Panther Girl".

Anyway, we had a hot, windows open day yesterday and the day before. It'll still be warm today around 70 degrees. We have to enjoy this while we can because a cold front will be here for the weekend. I certainly hope it warms up for Halloween.

IT'S MY TURN!

How about that! It's my turn at being one of the Diary Picks today! Thank you Diary Gal for this honor!

I also thank my following friends for their concats:

1. ANGEL BUDDIE & Family - pawsome pawmail;
2. TONY & ANNA - cool pumpkin;
3. MORTICIA - lovely red rose;
4. SMILEY CASSANOVA - pawsome pawmail;
5. SERENA SWEET ANGEL - cool pumpkin.

Also, we're having a heatwave today reaching around 82 degrees. It's been rather cool in between 70-75 degrees during the weekend and this week. Of course, the windows will be open wider today.

Lastly, Mommy picks up Cam's ashes tomorrow. She has cleared a spot next to Bentley's urn which is in the display case in the computer room. She hopes Cam's urn is really beautiful like Bentley's.

Got to go now. Time is running out.

THE PANTHER REFLECTS

I too miss Cam even though she and I never bonded. We always looked at each other from a distance. She growled at me a few times and I sometimes hissed and walked away. I never attacked nor bullied her. I gave the girlcat respect.

Still, I do miss her. She was originally Mommy's Mom's cat since 1993 and when "Grandma" passed away in 2005, Mommy became her new Mommy. I got to meet Cam in 2006 when I was a kitten and even then I never messed with her.

All in all, Cam was a decent cat and very old. I know she had a great life and lived it to the fullest. Mommy thinks Cam was holding a secret and never told any of us. Since Cam became an indoors cat in 2008, she chose to stay in the bathroom corner near the heating/AC vent. Until this year a little after Mommy came back from her knee surgery, Cam started to come out of her shell and be more sociable. She even started a partial bond with Sampy.

About 1 1/2 months ago, she started sleeping in the hallway next to our water/dry food court. A few weeks ago, she chose to sleep and hang out between Mommy's bed and the end table.

I'm speculating Cam knew that her time was drawing near and she wanted to be closer to us and Mommy. Her secret was big and even the vet could not find anything wrong with her blood panel nor her heart, and Mommy and he thought she would make it through the oral surgery.

Anyway, she is now at the Bridge as everycat knows. God gave her a full life of 20 years old! That's the longest living cat that we ever had in our family next to Isis who made it to 16 years old.

So I end my blog with "I miss you Cam, and I know you're in good hands at the Bridge and with your first Mommy and all our angels and a lot of Catster angels; Colleen, Violet, Calvin, Rocky Ann, Milo, Mercedes and many others".

Purrs & Breeps to all,

JUST CALL ME COOL!

When Mommy opened the 'fridge to get the bottle of cranberry juice, I jumped onto the lower shelf. Boy, was it cool in there! I didn't want to come out. After a minute, she managed to get me out 'cause according to her, kitties don't belong in 'fridges.

Oh well, it was cool in there (of course, she had the door open during that time).

Lastly, on behalf of all of us, I concat Landy on his DDP today! Woo-hoo! This is our first DDP in over a month.

Well, I got to run as bedtime is approaching.

CATNIP!

Catnip is the most pawsome stuff around! I LOVE IT!! =^00^=. My eyes get this big whenever I'm nip-tripping!

Cam, Sampy and I had some nip this morning. Sampy wanted to start something with Mommy's arm; like spring on it. Fortunately, he didn't do it.

Lastly, we had a cloudy, rainy weekend. Mostly today was wet with several T-storms.

Well, that's it. Bedtime fast approaches.

I wish all black cats in Catsterland and all over the world a very happy Black Cat Appreciation Day! Us black cats are sweet and lovable too! Take it from me! I'm the one who gives Mommy more kisses and purrs than my sibs.

I thank my panther friend ZACK for the cute black cat rosette HQ has just for our special day! Thank you HQ for helping celebrate our special day!

Earlier, I sent Zack a black kittie rosette too!

Well, that's about it. Good Night, my friends.

THREE NIPHEADS IN THE HOUSE!!

Three nipheads in the house
Camille rose, Sampy and me
We love the nip and sing with glee
Bail and Landy sniff and walk away
But that's okay is what I say
I love my nip any old day!

This weekend us three nipheads had two catnip pawties! All Mommy had to do was bring out the baggie of that green stuff and we came a runnin'

Samp and Cam got into a little spat after they got buzzed. I heard Cam call Sampy a "buzzkill". She was crouched and growling and hissing at the same time. Of course, Mommy told them to break it up and offered them no more nip. They were "cut off" just like two drunks in a human bar.

Anyway, I hope to get more nip tonight . . . I just can't say no to it . . .

Lastly, my photos were uploaded to FB for their Black Cat Appreciation Day. I got a lot of compliments on how handsome I was! That makes me feel good! Black cats are beautiful and nobody should shun them!

SHORT NOTE ON A WET DAY

July 21st 2012 9:50 am
[ Leave A Comment ]

Sorry I've been slacking in the diary writing. It's been so hot and now it's raining. We had a nasty LOUD T-storm (thunderstorm) Thursday night and it cooled it off a tad. Now today, it's way cool and wet. It's only supposed to rise to the upper 70's. I'll take that as that heat wave was wearing out its welcome.

Also, I'm doing okay and making sure I give Mommy lots of licks and headbutts and purrs. Her arthritis is acting up because of this weather and she can't wait until she sees the doctor next week to get back on the meds that'll help her feel better.

Lastly, she's one her way to Auntie Mary's house to see her new granddaughter, Suszannah.

Well, that's it. The rest of us will more than likely write something tomorrow.

Purrs & Breeps,

Merl
