Orange & White Tabby
Meal time! Playing with plastic bags, taking a nap with Mam or Da
Getting her nails clipped, visiting human grandchildren, being boarded when her humans are on vacation
Peacock feather, the plastic ring off the top of a milk bottle
Favorite Nap Spot:
On her climbing tree when the sun is shining, bedroom window perch in early a.m.
Fish flavored Greenies
When being fed, if you ask her if she is ready to eat, she will answer "reh-eee!"
Ollie's story: No one knows how I ended up wandering around a big trucking terminal, but there I was and boy! was I scared. Those big rigs and those rats were really big! Then I saw "Happy Don" and I knew he was the guy for me so I decided to let him know who I was. Wherever he went I followed him. If he stopped walking, I tried to climb up his pants legs. When he sat down, I tried to jump into his lap. Finally, after two days, he picked me up, put me in a pickle crate and placed the crate in the cab of his truck and we went for a ride. When we stopped, someone soft and gentle picked me up and held me. I was so relieved, I just wiggled my head into her shoulder. It must have worked because I heard her say, "Let's keep her."
Ollie continues: They took me straight to the vet, where it was estimated that I was between 6 mo and a year old. I weighed a mere 5-1/4 lb and was incredibly filthy. So dirty, in fact, while I was asleep for my spay, the vet assistant cleaned some of the grease, oil, and dirt off the little pink pads on my feet. The remainder just had to wear off. Anyway, it wasn't long before I was up to where I should be with my weight, but then the vet discovered I had some kind of crystals in my urine. She said they were treatable with special food, so now I am on low ph stuff that I get to eat 3 times a days and I manage to maintain my weight at 11-1/4 lb.

In 2008 Ollie was diagnosed with a severe case of FORL (Feline Odontitic Resorbtive Lesions), a condition where the tooth begins to dissolve, beginning at the root and from the inside out, creating holes in the tooth - very painful. It is not unusual for older cats to lose their teeth this way, but at Ollie's young age of 3 years, it can only be genetic. At this time she has had six teeth extracted. Proper care and cleaning will slow down the process on her remaining teeth, but it is very likely she will eventually lose all of them.

Two times this past week me 'n Blossom were left alone all. day. long. Not nice. Thoughtless. What makes it worse, they were out just having fun! And they left us. All. Alone. In. The. House. Alone. Well I showed them. I didn't use the litter box to wee either day. I weed on the paper in the boot tray instead. I showed them. Huh! (stomps paw)
Mam's note: from a very early age, Ollie has had litter box issues. There were numerous trips to the vet for numerous tests - all negative. Numerous litter boxes until we found the "right" one(s) (They are actually litter boxes for small dogs - very large.)and, of course, Feliway. None really solved the problem, but it became easier to deal with when the vet concluded there is nothing wrong with her - she just likes to let us know when she is unhappy. In those instances she would use the paper underneath the litter boxes, which led us to try using a large boot tray lined with paper.....available to her all the time. It has been very successful. Now whenever we see she has used the boot tray, we know that she is mad at us for something. Guessing what it is isn't always easy, though!

Hmmmmm. Ok now, let me just find a place to settle down to dictate this to Mam. I haf to make sure she puts down everyfing exackly as I say because she has been reely,reely bad about helping me post here on Catster. She's been busy wif her new fun thing: quilting. Everyfing else may as well be a hairball on the floor as far as she is concerned.
So anyway, Mam has been busy sewing quilts for the soldiers, something called Soldiers' Angels and for some local people too, like for little kids going to Head Start to take naps on and to an hooman adoption place where every adoptee gets a brand new hand made quilt. Oh yes, 'n then she is on a hooman social network which I will not name which isn't fair because she needs to spend time here wif me 'n Blossom too.
But today I have finally made her feel guilty enough to help me wif this post.
It's hard to believe we moved to Florida from Michigan two years ago! We really like it here. Da put in a little door for me 'n Blossom to go through from the house to the pool area, but I do not like it one bit. Instead, I have trained them to let me in and out at my heart's desire. I stay out there in the morning 'n evening but stay inside during the heat of the day.
When I am in the pool area, I like to watch the birds come to the feeder and the lizards that climb on the screen. Sometimes a lizard comes in 'n me 'n Blossom play wif it. Da usually takes it away 'n puts it outside before we can hurt it. We do that wif little tree frogs too.
The one big thing I do not like is when the 4 little boys who live next door come over to swim. They think I am a toy 'n they want to touch me 'n carry me. I don't like that 'n always run to the door to go inside. I watch them from the other side of the slider. Oh yes 'n they also have a beagle dawg named "Ann." I don't like her either.
Well, Mam says it is Blossom's turn so I haf to say 'bye for now. I hope she will help me do this again soon. So until next time,

Hi Every Fur!
I think it is apparent that we are having problems keeping up with posting happenings here on Catster. Mam has become enamoured with quilting and making diaper covers for our human baby neighbors. Me 'n Blossom, help her by choosing fabric....we lie on it to let her know our choice. We also dig in the cupboards where she keeps her "stash." She has stacks of projects..... Me, Da 'n Blossom suspect she will never get them done!!
It has been pretty hot here, just like most of the country. I don't go outside much these days. One of my favorite places is Mam's closet. For some reason it seems to be a little cooler than other parts of the house. Me 'n Blossom, we both like to lie on the trundle in Mam's sewing room. There's a ceiling fan in there. The heat doesn't seem to bother Blossie so much. She still spends quite a bit of time on the lanai and on the deck around the pool. She likes to roll around like a dog (yuck!) and let the sun shine on her tummy. She has no class, that one!
*yawn* Time for my midday nap.
prrrt 'n meow,
