CHOW CHOW CHOW

My appetite has been a bit off lately & my blood test came back a little out of whack. Good news with a clear ultrasound and X-ray today. I am taking a little appetite stimulant and antacid - hope to be back on track soon! My humans are so relieved to have these results today. Vet will keep a close eye on me.

Now, get outta my way, I want to eat!

Sheet surfing

Humans do this great thing called "changing the sheets" - I recognize it as a great sport! The minute I hear the snap of sheets coming off or on the bed, I race to join in. Under and over and pouncing on billows of air. My human lifts an edge to let me peek out for the escape route before making the last tuck. Then, on the top layer to assist in rearranging (un-smoothing) as best I can.

Purrs to all!

Annual check-up

I was a little sassy with the vet today, but I came home with an A+ on my health record! I am maintaining my healthy weight, sparkling white teeth and plush coat. We will hear about my blood tests later in the week, but no reason to think they will be anything less than purrfect too.

I don't have to do much to work my magic on everyone who meets me! "OOOHH! what a beautiful bunny-like coat you have." and "What gorgeous eyes!" Luna may be the best dressed kitty, but I am happiest without clothes. Just come turn on the faucet for me, please.....

Purrs to all,

Costco Membership!

I now have my very own little card, with MY name on it for the Costco pharmacy! My human was pleased to find Costco carries the veterinary Rx I take. Especially since it is the feline dose, not the more common canine preparation. It saved $5 over the on-line pharmacy and was half of what it would cost at my vet office.

Every California kitty should know that it is their legal right to get a prescription from their vet and "shop" it around. Don't feel bad to ask. Just think of it as savings you can use for other veterinary services to maintain your good health. Like dental cleanings, blood work, X-rays!

Cheers!

In the closet!

One of my favorite things is to dash into my humans' walk-in closet and hide behind the clothes. Sometimes they don't see me - because I am so fast and so black. I slip by in a blur! Usually, one of them knows I am playing & will come to get me out. But sometimes......they don't know or don't realize I'm in there....and I pull at the carpet until it rolls up in front of the door. Then when the door is opened, it has to be pushed a little extra hard.

I learned this trick from my sister, Biscuit. We are both quiet kitties who like to play in dark places. Just open a closet door and one of us will be there to "help" explore.

Closets, sinks, bathtubs - all great places to play and get extra attention. Off to cause some mischief!

"Sassy"

That's what the vet called me! Sassy! ROFL because I hissed at her as the assistant lifted me out of my carrier. That's a cheerful take on a kitty with attitude. No need to be negative. Just sayin', I'd rather stay in the cozy safety of my carrier, if you don't mind.

Thanks Dr. Burwell for your skillful and gentle care. I especially like that you send written instructions home with my human.

Happy Halloween every kitty!

Whoa! fb surprise!

I am a big fan of Luna, the fashion kitty - who now has her own weekly column on Catster! I am subscribed to her fb page and clicked on the Catster link - & WHOA, found my photo on the Catster wall! http://www.facebook.com/catster?sk=wall There are over 200 comments! Being Cat of the Day on Aug 31 was a great treat, but I had no idea it extended to fb, as well.

Happy to be a black cat and Scottish Fold ambassador. Off to take a snooze now. My human better not be thinking of dressing me up like Luna! That would be a nightmare - it has been done for special holiday photos, but she better not go beyond that!

Thank you Luna for promoting adoption of Persians in need!

Cannot believe I am 7 years old today!

My humans noted that I have been particularly frisky today. Of course I know it is my birthday! I am still the bathtub loving, wall hugging, Velcro kitty. I follow my humans around the house and love to help with making the bed. I have special talents for headbutting underneath pillows and blankets.
Today, I am looking for that special catnip toy and a few extra treats. Maybe if I sit in the sink or bathtub, I can score some extra pets. That's my own personal trick for getting one on one time with my human servants. They turn on the tap to just a trickle for me to drink and play. I also like to nap on the desk right next to the computer.
A shout out to my mom Teddi - I know I look like her twin. Cats of Oz are all great kitties!

Happy Birthday to ME!
Tara

 

Lumpy bumpy

My humans are taking me back to the vet for more X-rays of my legs. In February, they noticed a lump on my right rear leg - near a place called a "hock" - the radiologist said it is the bony proliferation that sometimes happens with Scottish Folds. But, is it crippling & painful? Is it growing? So, back for another set of X-rays to see if there are any changes. But wait! My human noticed a bump on my left leg! RATS! Safest thing to do is go ahead with the X-rays. There were no tumors found anywhere else & these growths do not appear to penetrate the bones.....Chin up! I am so funny and plush, this just has to be something minor.

Okay, that's my story, now go turn on the tap for me! You know I love to play in the tub or sink! I will run through your legs to get there ahead of you! Come on, let's play in the water!

My birthday is at the end of May, but we can start celebrating now.........
