Dwells:
indoors

Arrival Story:
After losing my cat Bliss, I knew I wanted a cat with a similar personality, and researched breeds with that in mind. Also, my autistic niece comes over to visit, and I wanted to make sure the cat was friendly and not scared of children. I contacted breeders, and serendipitously not just one but two Tonkinese sisters seemed perfect. Penelope was said to be incredible with children, even to the point of preferring them to adults. Once I met her, though, it was her incredibly affectionate nature that got to my heart.

Bio:
She is extremely playful in a wonderfully daffy sense, and also has a deep need to explore, always seeking new horizons and places. For this reason, since she is an indoor cat, we got a pet stroller, which she loves to go for rides in. She has the most beautiful deep purr as well: absolutely heaven to hold. Fortunately she likes to be held, so I am extremely blessed by her sweet self. She is also extremely talkative when she wants to explore. If I come with her to open doors or help her up to the high places she chatters to me while she explores, giving me a running commentary. She also gives me a lot of extra purrs when I take her into the garage, which is sort of a magic forbidden place to her, though I don't let her go loose. She's wonderful fun to be with.

My Life as a Mirth Monkey


Nana's glad she let me stay . . .

January 13th 2015 10:05 pm
[ Leave A Comment ]

Well at first Nana let me into her room to let me be able to be near her heater when I was sick, but she didn't know what she was getting into, and I mean that in a good way. Mom has noticed now that every time Nana talks about a vacation to the beach she talks of finding pet-friendly rooms! She never even considered taking us along before (though Mom has a lot!) And now Nana has the flu, and--even though I haven't been using the heater as often, and don't always stay in Nana's room all night--now that Nana has the flu I stayed on Nana's bed all night and kept my purr motor going to soothe her while she coughed. No wonder she can't imagine leaving without me now! MOL Mom knew that she couldn't imagine ever sleeping without Minnie, but it's a dream come true for her that Nana knows why finally, and can't dream of sleeping without me.

Just wanted to thank so much all of the well wishers and POP givers that have shown their support, not to mention a Buddie blue ribbon: my mom and I appreciate it so much!
I went on a different antibiotic at the beginning of December--something we had to fight hard to get our vet to try, making us want to find a new vet. Mom knew it was an infection, but he kept vacillating that maybe it was allergies or that we should just give her pain meds. But Mom prevailed, and boy did I start to feel better! I came back to being my own true self! The downside, though, was that though at first I adjusted really well to taking the liquid medication, over time I got more and more terrified of having medicine forced into me, almost as if I had PTSD again from one of my previous owners. (I wouldn't even let Mom and Nana near me at the same time, for fear of it being med time). Pretty soon the burden of my terror became too hard for Mom and Nana to bear seeing me go through, so even though the antibiotic course was supposed to be a whopping nine weeks long, they cut it short. Things seemed to normalize after awhile, and I even had fun joining in with Christmas festivities, and boy, did Mom ever work hard to make up for both of us having to take meds! (Minnie's on the same antibiotic course still, and doing fantastically.) She got us so many little toys, and interchangeable wand toys--it looked like she bought out the store of everything Christmas themed!
Now though, I'm beginning to get sneezey again, and Mom and Nana are getting nervous. If anyone knows of any antibiotic other than Convenia (what the vet used before, but the bugs got resistant to) that can be injected IM, but lasts 2 weeks please let Mom know. I just don't deal well with being pilled or given liquid medicine very long, but Mom doesn't know what else to try. She's thinking of trying to go to a cat-only vet, though, as the vet we have seems more comfortable with dogs.
Thanks again for all the support!

 

I need purrs!

Mom is hoping some of your purrs would help, as I'm miserable and she doesn't know what's wrong. She knows I had a URI going on, and antibiotics helped quite a bit--the sneezes are gone, and I sometimes come downstairs to visit now. But I'm nowhere near my usual goofy active self--I spend almost all my time curled up near a heater and don't come out for attention often except in Nana's room at night. Yup, you heard right--Nana's so worried about me she now lets me stay in her room at night to comfort me, something that Mom wasn't sure would ever happen! But Nana adores me now as much as Mom does, and with an even closer bond (Minnie took Mom, so I chose Nana to be my human, and I love her so!)
Mom is even considering changing vets to a Cats-only vet as my current vet is better used to dogs and doesn't seem to have a clue. Mom cries, as she doesn't know if she can ever get the real me back. :*(
Keep me in your purrs, please!
