Meow,

Today meowmy made a trip to my vet's office this afternoon to pick up some treats and food for me and to drop off some litterbox liners and anti-scratch things for furniture that I don't use. I figured since I don't use them, then maybe they could use them for the clinic kitties or one of the employees could use them for their own cats. Meowmy picked me up a couple cans of Tiki - Salmon and Chicken flavor and Chicken and Egg flavor, some Merricks moist food - Surf and Turf, Cowboy Cookout, Grammy's Pot Pie, and Turducken. She also bought me a new Yeooww! Catnip Heart as the one I currently had had a big hole in it. While at the vet's office meowmy saw a couple of the orange tabby clinic cats sleeping in their beds and their Savannah cat, Leo who was roaming around and very curious as to what customers were buying. Leo has beautiful markings according to meowmy and is somewhere around 20 lbs. and is friendly.

Speaking of my vet's office. They have a pawsome new website - www.animaldoctormuskego.com. They have some very helpful how to videos on how to administer medication to your pet and how to bath a cat. These videos are all staring my vet Dr. Jodie and the clinic animals. The video on how to bath a cat I found rather interesting, especially since I am one of those cats who hates baths. Basically, you are supposed to get a big pan out and fill it with water, but it is impawtant that us cats do not see the running water. Then you are supposed to swaddle us in a towel, kinda like a baby and then set us in the pan of water and take a little bowl and scoop up some water and slowly poor it over us. The cat in the video was surprisingly calm. Also, they have this pawsome new forum feature where you can interact with the vet and other pet parents. I also enjoyed reading the clinic cat and dog's stories and getting to know more about them.

Anymeow, it's been a snowy day here. I enjoyed lounging in my favorite recliner in the living room this morning.

I hope everycat has a good weekend!

First Stroll of 2012!

Meow,

This morning meowmy took me on a very long stroll - 3 miles to be exact. We walked/sprinted/strolled to Idle Isle Park which is just along Little Muskego Lake near us. Meowmy had her Ipod on and I looked around and listened to the birdies and watched for squirrels. While we were at the park we noticed a sign that said No Dogs Allowed. Well it didn't say No Cats In Strollers Allowed so I guess I'm welcome there. I just wish meowmy would have let me out so I could check out to see if there were any fish in the lake. Too bad meowmy doesn't like fish, maybe she could have caught me one. While we were there, meowmy wanted to take a picture of us but the batteries in her camera were dead. So we strolled/sprinted/walked back to our house. Meowmy refilled the batteries in her camera and strolled me back out to the car. I thought "Oh no, not the dreaded car ride"! It turned out meowmy just wanted to drive back to the park to get a picture of us near the lake. Silly meowmy isn't she?

I sure hope everycat is enjoying the beautiful weather if it is nice out wherever you live! I sure am. Mom has the windows open and I'm thoroughly enjoying listening to the birdies.

Happy Birthday to Me!

Meow,

Today I turn 9 years old! I don't really plan on anything too special today. I celebrated my birthday a little early last weekend with meowmy, grandmaw and grandpaw as meowmy has to work today. I wonder if she will bring me anything yummy like a chicken or turkey sandwich home from work tonight? That would be pawsome!

I hope everycat is having a good day today! I'm going to enjoy my cat food and take a couple of long cat naps. I need my beauty rest you know.

Colleen

 

Thank You!

Meow,

I wanted to thanks everycat who left me messages and rosettes for my birthday yesterday. I had a pretty good day yesterday between playing with my toys and catnaps. However I was a little disappointed with mom yesterday bringing home a tomato and cheese sandwich and an apple instead of something with turkey or chicken in it. Oh well, maybe another day she will bring me home something I will like.

On Sunday I had a taste of my birthday cake. It was a cute aquarium cake that meowmy made me. The cake was vanilla and delicious.

I Went to the V-E-T yesterday and caused meowmy to have to- go to hers!

Meow,

So yesterday I had an appointment with the V-E-T for my yearly check up. They called me back and asked if they could get my weight. Meowmy thinking it wouldn't be any problem said sure. She got me out of my carrier and one of the clinic cats walked by and meowmy lost her balance and sort of came down on one of my paws. The combination of these two things spooked me, plus it hurt when meowmy landed on my paw. I let meowmy know really well. I chomped into her thumb very hard. It bled pretty hard and got all swollen. She washed it really well and bandaged it up. When we got home, she called her doctor and they were able to get her in. Long story short, meowmy is on antibiotics and she was long overdue for her tetenus shot, so she had that as well. As far as me, I am fine for the most part. I just had what amounted to an ingrown toenail thanks to the soft paws that were on my nails that meowmy swears she will never use again on me. I also had a bit of a wax build up in my left ear. They were going to take some blood from me, but felt I was quite traumatized by the nail clip and the removal of the ingrown nail. It quite literally scared the kitty crap outta me! The V-E-T said just to come back in about a month to have the blood work done. I say meowmy can forget about that one. I'm not going to be a happy camper if that happens!

Anymeow, hope everycat is having a great weekend!

I Took A Stroll Yesterday! (Not the Kind I Wanted To Go On- Either!)

Meow,

Yesterday afternoon meowmy scoops me up and tells me that we are going for a stroll. What she didn't tell me is that we were strolling over to The Animal Doctor (a.k.a The V-E-T). She also decided to bring her camera along. We get there and we see their Holiday Tree up. They decorate this fake evergreen tree for all the different holiday occasions. They had the tree decorated with all this patriotic stuff for Memorial Day. Meowmy took a picture of me with it. It was very purrty! She also took a picture of me near the sign. Anymeow, I was fine until they took me in to have my blood drawn and my nails clipped. I crowled and hissed really loud. Meowmy could hear me from the waiting room as she always does. It will probably be a couple of days before I'll get the results of my blood work. My V-E-T just wanted me to have some blood work done as part of my physical as I am getting a little older and she just wants to make sure I don't have the start of any common illnesses that older cats often develop.

Other than that, I've just been chilling out with meowmy when she hasn't been working. A while back she bought me my own copy of the movie Puss N' Boots which I really enjoyed. Hope everycat is doing well.

Grandmaw is coming over with Huge Scarey Monster!

Meow,

Meowmy and Grandmaw both have off work today, so they decided that they were going to work on cleaning the carpets over at our place. Don't get me wrong, I love clean carpets, but I hate Huge Scarey Monsters (a.k.a. Carpet Cleaners). I think I'll have to go hide downstairs or under meowmy's new bed.

Also, there was some talk of Meowmy, Grandmaw and Grandpaw all going out to lunch at this newish place near them called Papa Joes. I sure hope they have chicken sandwiches there and that they think to bring me one home.

I Was Bad and Almost Gave Meowmy a Real Scare!

Meow,

So right before Grandmaw was going to come over, meowmy decided to have some chocolate ice cream. It was one of those little individual things of ice cream. Well, meowmy had taken the lid off and put in on her computer desk. I decided to jump up and when meowmy wasn't paying attention and went and started to lick the chocolate ice cream off the lid. Luckily, meowmy caught me right away and took it away. So I only licked up just a tiny bit. Still meowmy was a little afraid, so she decided to call my V-E-T's office to ask them if she should be worried about me. They told her that as long as it was just a tiny bit, that she shouldn't have to worry. I wonder how many of you other cats out there have done that to your meowmies or daddies?

Hope everycat is behaving out there! Don't do anything that I wouldn't, mol!

Did Someone Say Something About Chocolate?

Meow,

So I heard my meowmy's telephone conversation with Grandmaw this morning. Since my meowmy has off work this Saturday, they were talking about going to the Burlington Chocolate Fest. Did I just hear right chocolate? As in that yummy ice cream I had a little taste of? Meowmy tells me that yes, I heard right, but that I can't come. She says I was never supposed to taste that chocolate ice cream of hers anyway, because chocolate will make us cats very sick! I say "No fair! How can something that tastes so good be so bad for us?" I say they need to come up with a festival that is much more cat friendly with cat friendly food. If I had my way, the festival would have all things catnip, plenty of fish, chicken and turkey flavored treats. I might even have a cat treat eating contest and carnival games. Most impawtantly, there would be free stroller rentals. All us cats would get in free and humans would be the only ones that would have to pay admission.

Anymeow,just thought I'd throw in my two cents regarding the Chocolate Festival. I hope Meowmy, Grandmaw, and Grandpaw have fun at it without me (pouts)!

Where is my Kid's Fish Fry to go?

Meow,

Meowmy went to a fish fry last night with grandmaw and grandpaw last night. She came home with leftovers, but just some french fries. I was wondering where my kids meal was. They had kids fish fries for children 12 and under and I'm 9. Meowmy said the fish was really good too and normally she can't stand fish. Next time meowmy warms up those fries, I guess I'll have to go and steal some from her out of spite.

Not a happy kitty!
