I have never seen my Mommy make such a big fuss over me as I have lately.
I am allowed out of my room now, but only if I am a good boy. I go days with no accidents, and then I poop and pee on the floor again. When I am out of my room, I am still very mean to the new cats. (I am the meanest to the most scared ones. Some are showing me they are not afraid anymore and I mostly leave them alone.)
But I really gave Mommy a scare on Friday when she returned home from work to find I had not eaten my food. She was beside herself with worry. Daddy was summoned to help Mommy see if I was ok. She checked my gums and to see if I seemed dehydrated. Both of them said I seemed fine, and I was meowing my head off to be fed. They wondered why I was meowing my hungry meow since I did not eat my food.
Mommy got an idea and tried a different flavor of food, and I inhaled it! Mommy was relieved that I was just being fussy and was not sick. She is scared to death about my kidneys since my radiocat treatment. I have extra motivation to eat now since Mommy only gives me the flavors I like now, and she says if I don't eat then I am getting taken to the animal hospital right away. Ok, then! Eating it is!
All this attention comes in handy when you are hungry, but it's annoying when it does not work in your favor. My claws were totally overgrown, and the doctor keeps telling Momma that he will have to sedate me to do my nails (I don't tolerate sedation well), and the Radiocat people did not want to do it either. Finally Mommy decided that it had to get done no matter what, and so she wrapped a towel all over me and handed me to Daddy. He held me while Mommy clipped. They only did the front this time but promised to do it again to the back! And now that they did it themselves once, I think they think they are going to do it on a regular basis now!
And while I was rendered powerless, I got kitty wiped too! I am not sure I like all this attention, but I like getting the food I want whenever I want it!
