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


Vengeance

June 21st 2015 7:53 pm
[ Leave A Comment ]

If you haven't read about this before, I have a nemesis. His name is Monkey and he lives next door. As he is allowed outdoors and I am an indoor cat, he loves flaunting in my face that he can prance around on *my* territory and I can't. :( When he comes up next to the sliding glass door I hiss, and try to get at him so hard that I bonk my head on the glass. Well I got back at him good the other day.
One of my favorite activities is Mom taking me out to the car and her just letting me sit on her lap with the door open. I am extremely well behaved and don't try to jump off her lap--under most circumstances. However, a couple of nights ago we were doing this and Monkey was on his own property asking to go inside at his humans' front door, but nobody answered. He then made the foolish decision to come over onto *my* lawn and stare at me. Mom doesn't know if it was her shriek as I flew off her lap or Monkey seeing me flying over after him like a Valkyrie (cue Wagner music) but he dashed like crazy away from me in terror! Haha! I got him good! The funny thing was that once I landed on the grass was that--as I am an indoor cat with little to no exposure to grass--I was completely perplexed with what this grass stuff was anyway, and didn't move an inch until Mom scooped me up and took me indoors. After all, rules are rules, and if I jump off her lap it's time to go indoors. However, in all other circumstances I might get grounded and not taken back out to the car for a week, but since it was Monkey involved she took me out to the garage afterwards as a treat. *giggles*

 

Nana's glad she let me stay . . .

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.

[ Leave A Comment ]

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!
