MOL Mom finally let me on the computer to let all of my friends know I am still doing good with my asthma treatments. My Doctor Kathy told Mom it is OK for me to have 1 puff twice a now til the spring unless I have an asthma attack so far so good...I am breathing fine and I am so happy. You know I am fine with getting the treatments, I know they are coming and I do breath in my medication like a good boy. yes I am a good boy!
Now on to more news from me to you we have a new cat in our house. You see my Mom had to bring her Mom's cat Kandi to live with us cause her Mom is in a skilled nursing home now and she can't have her live with her anymore.
Well she isn't the nicest kitty you see no one can pick her up, if anyone human and animal gets near her she swats at them. Mom got the swat last night and now has scratches on her hand.
Mom says we have to be patient and loving to her cause she doesn't understand why she is here and locked in a room without her Mom. Mom opens the door and puts the doggies fence up in front of the door so we all can look at each other. I just sit there and watch her, she sits there looks back at me hisses and growls...Mom asked me if I even know how to hiss or growl. You know I don't know! I have never had to hiss or growl I am a lover boy and pretty easy going for the most part...Tallulah hisses and so does Xena...
Mom just wants to be careful to make sure Kandi won't attack any of us, cause we are not mean or fighters.
So our house has been turned upside down with having a new kitty in the house. The saga continues and who knows when it will end if at all...we all hope Kandi will feel better about being here and get to come out of the room and be part of our family.
As long as I accept her and my breathing continues to not be a problem for me anymore...loving Zeke
We are furry glad to hear that you are doing well on your breathing medicine. (((hugs))). Poor Kandi. She probably is all scared and catfused. :~(
How does your mom handle all of this stress? My mommy wouldn't make it....Hope Kandi warms up to you...
Hi Ava and Mom, I am not sure how Mom does it but she does. I guess it comes from having jobs that were somewhat stressful, she just does thing at a time, when she needs to stop and rest she does. Oh and the best way she gets away from it all is she goes to the San Diego Zoo and Wild Animal Park...she loves going and watching all the animals...it brings job and peace to her..
Well as for Kandi not sure how that will end up she has never been around other animals..Mom goes in and plays a little with her, not sure if she got to play much, Mom tries to talk to her Mom about Kandi and her Mom cries. My Moms Mom like to give her baths all the time and we think she might have been a little more ruff with her than needed be and oh for heavens sake she certainly did not need baths all the time, she never goes outside...Mom is going to have to have a mobile groomer come to shave her again, she did it once for her Mom cause she was all matted...Mom can't brush her, Mom knows she will scratch her, Mom will try to clip her nails, but that alone will be scary cause Mom will have to get her first and then put a towel around her and hopefully keep her paws covered til she needs to clip the nails...I don't want to be around when that happens I think I will be hiding in the other room
Mom will not give up and she will keep trying, Kandi has a home with us even if she never gets friendly enough to hang out with us.
My Mommy would do the same for her mommy's dog if she had to....
Hang in there, Zeke, my new brofur and sisfur have been here 7 weeks now, and we are not 100% happy about them being here either, although the kittens seem perfectly happy. We all get along and there is no more hissing, but it does take awhile for everyone to get used to one another. The kittens run around like wildcats and sometimes it can really get on my nerves! Mom thinks it will get easier as the kittens get older and they settle down.
We can only imagine that an older, only cat like Kandi must be having a terrible time adjusting to a new environment. Bless your Meowmy for taking her in. We purr that it will only get better for you and your family.
I know your Mom would too. It isn't easy having to decide to put your parent in a home and then dealing with their pet....even if she isn't nice there was no way Mom was going to give her away or worse...because she isn't nice no one would want her and that was just not an option with Mom....she has a home forever with us even if she isn't nice....Mom can take her to visit her other Mom...her Mom always ask about her, so Mom will be taking her for a visit....
Tully we sure hope so, she likes to swat too, she got Mom the other night....Mom doesn't want her to get to us, none of us are swatters or fighters and Mom is afraid she night fight...she alos has never been around doggies we have 2, who knows what will happen if she comes upon them....
She will be here for ever, there are no other options for Mom she promised her Mom she would keep her and love her no matter what...we just pray she will come around and we can all be friends.
I've never heard of a cat having asthma but when I think about, a cat has lungs, of course it's possible. I'm glad you're doing well with your inhalers. So is my human mom but she had to change them recently to stronger ones.
I will keep Khandi in my heart and purrs. Perhaps her fear will lessen.
