Carmen gives us a run-down of all the bad stuff Dexter has done as soon as we walk in the door. Her little monkey-voice chatters like a true tattle-tale a la Cindy Brady.


Arrival Story:
Carmen was brought into the vet clinic where I had worked in Toledo when she was only about 3 weeks old. It was a Friday, she was mangled, loaded with maggots and wasn't expected to make it through the night let alone the weekend. Dr. Gary wanted to give her a chance and the following monday she was in surgery. A couple pins, a lot of supportive care, and an awesome foster mom later...well... look at her now!

We call Carmen our bionic cat -- aside from being pinned and having her tail amputated when she was just a wee kitten, she's had a femoral head osteotomy - left hip - and the right hip isn't in the best of shape. She takes joint supplements for her hips (and we all know how fun pilling a cat can be) and goes to the Dr. every 6 to 8 weeks to have her anal glands expressed (hates this a lot but it has to be done). Carmen knows that she's burned a couple of her nine lives and on occasion will tear throught the house like the Tasmanian Devil. She's also taken to crawling around the rafters in the basement-- this does not please mom. She's very talkative and loves when dad's buddies come to the house -- loves the boys but her heart will always belong to Calvin. She also likes to ambush the dog -- boxing him like Mohammed Ali -- she has no fear. She is definitely mom's little princess -- nothing is too good for our Carmenita!

My Tail of Devotion for Carmen Louise

The fact that you're even alive is amazing to me. You, Carmen, are a testament to survival. You were so little, so battered....imagine my surprise to return to work on Monday and see you in the cage - hooked up to fluids, fighting to live. Pam deserves so much credit - she nursed you when you were so, so sick. Look at you now! Even after hip surgery you are a fireball. You are my special gal - my soul sister. You will always be momma's girl. I smile when I see all you little furbabies but you, Carmelita Jeen, you are special. You make my heart swell!

This is a special Tail of Devotion

Where's my hair????

Before everyone gets crazy, just for the record, I'M FINE!!! Mom put the Frontline Plus on all us cats the other day (Tuesday, I think). No big deal. I really don't mind it. Afterall, I've never had fleas and I really don't want fleas. Same stuff that she always gets but for some reason I woke up with a naked spot on my back the size of a nickel!!! I'm bald in one spot! Mom isn't worried....just a reaction. From now on I'll get the Topspot instead of the Plus. Maybe not a big deal to her but I'm bald! I don't get it. I'm the black kitty in this house and if anyone had to lose a patch of hair it should have been Dex. He's light colored! It would have blended in much better! AAAARGGHHHH! And I'm the girl! He doesn't care about his hair! In the end, it doesn't matter because I always look good!!


I'm gonna kill him...

Look, I'm not big on writing and stuff but a girl has got to vent. That orange tub is gonna get us in trouble. Dad was not a happy camper when his toy went buzz-buzz-buzz because Dex had to make it into a chewie. I'm gonna be so good - I refuse to get in trouble and I really don't want to be banned from the cool room with the big window. These boys around here make me want to scream! Calvin's always trying to fool around when I want only to sleep and I really don't have to tell you about Dexter -- what a bossy pain in my a**. And the dog?!
What is his problem? Besides, of course, the awful odor that is spewed from is hind end 18 hours of the day. Sometimes I just want to curl up next to him and he acts all afraid -- afraid of little old me. I'm too special to be forced to live with these morons.
