Spotted Tabby

Mom's fuzzy purple robe/fuzzy blanket. To sit on the screened porch, and to jump up on any available surface. A high shelf is seen as a challenge. He loves to go for walks on his leash.

When Mom won't take me OUT! if there is one of the outdoot kitties in MY YARD

Favorite Toy:
Da Bird. I climbed to the top of Mom's closet to get to it! scratchers & catnip

Favorite Nap Spot:
I took over a basket on top of the filing cabinet in Mom's office - so she can no longer use it. I also have discovered how to get into the ceiling in the basement and I like to sleep up there next to the heat vent. Anywhere I can curl up in a box!

Favorite Food:
tuna & turkey and I must confess, I like to get a taste of Mom's oatmeal and one tsp of milk when Mom has cereal.

I can open the closet door, & I try to turn the knob on the back door to go on the screen porch. I also like to drag towels, placemat, or blanket through the house & stash them behind the couch.I tried to drag a king size comforter up the basement stairs


Arrival Story:
My son had heard meowing a few days earlier outside his window. We were outside one morning and saw little legs under our truck. We have a few feral cats around, so we were surprised when I called out & he came running! he meowed & rubbed on our legs and purred so loud he almost fell over. He was a filthy scrawny mess. We fell for him instantly and I took him to the vet, he had fleas, a respiratory infection and his eyes were infected. But after a few months of meds, good food & lots of love, he has grown into a wonderful kitty.

I have hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and am on medicine which I take like a good boy. I survived a bladder blockage 2 times. My heart actually improved & I am doing great!

Some thoughts from a kitty's perspective

Been a week on the amitriptaline. The first day, I took it at 8am, slept literally until 6pm. Momma was worried & woke me up. I did a huuuuge pee and ate. I am seeimg to adjust more to it. I was kinda out of it for a few days. The pacing is not as frantic. There have still been a few pees, and I am spraying a bit, but it actually seems better. The driveway is not done, too much rain, but Momma said maybe that is good, because I can get my self together before everything is back & I can go out on the porch. So I won't spray out there hopefully. Momma has been stressed about work stuff, so that does not help, but I guess I am plugging along as best as I can. The meds have not affected my heart rate or ekg, so thats good. Thanks for the paws my pals, I luv you all. Keep ya posted!

Thank you for my birthday wishes. I have been uber stressed out, and my cystitis reared it's ugly head big time. Between peeing where I should not, and then the spraying kicked into high gear. We are getting a new driveway- the old one is literally crumbling terribly unsafe, so The Dad and our Unca Steve had to disasemble the screened porch, cause The Dad said, we might as well have them pour a new floor too. Well when they took the wood down, apparently my spraying damaged alot of wood, even though Momma uses enzymes, so much will be replaced. So I have not been able to go out on the porch since Memorial Day. This has ramped up my pacing, yowling, everything. Momma took me out on my leash, but nothing seems to help. So off to the vet I went. No infections, but Momma had to make the decision to try me on amitryptaline. She loves me, and tried eveything else to help me, but she can't take it anymore. So we all hope this works. The problem is that it can affect the meds I take for my heart, so we gotta watch that. Only took it 3 days. The first day I slept from 10am through to 6pm. Momma woke me up to potty & eat. I went back to pacing again. HOpefully this will work. I will update you later. Thanks again!


still here!

Been a while again, but Momma has been so disgusted with Catster, that we have been awol. And because of that - gosh we missed being here for Smitty, Feefs and my birthday. Thank you for my gifties. We are going to go and poke around, see what is up, but also to tell you we are well, I am sassy and things are good. THis site loaded real fast...hmm good thing?
