Ok so Momma & The Dad abandoned us! Yes you heard it - they had the nerve to leave us for a week! Well, of course I got to sleep in Nana's bed, but that is beside the point. They went all the way to Seattle to visit our human sister. Momma was excited as she had not seen her since February, and it was the first real vacation they have had in 16 years, so I guess it was ok! But now, Momma says work is backed up so she will be doing that all weekend, and finishing moving FINALLY the rest of the office from the basement to upstairs. So we may not be on much all weekend, cause Mom has lots to do, but we may lurk a bit. I do know Momma has been in a VERY good mood since she came home, so I am guessing that seeing a human daughter is better than catnip! I was so happy to see Momma that when she called my name, I stopped midstride & yelled MEOW! & RAN to Momma so she could pick me up.- (I loves my mom)
PS Nana spoiled us all week too...extra treats....don't tell Momma...

Momma misses Pearl

So there was a new kitten outside for a few days. Not part of the colony, definitely NOT feral. Momma says she acted just like I did when found home. Sweet little grey girl with green eyes & a huge purr. Why she climbed right up Momma's leg to get snuggles. Now of course Momma wanted to keep her. But honestly as much as the heart wanted this - and Momma wanted it BAD Momma knew that with Felix's issues & I am uptight enough with adding Felix & seeing the ferals outside sometimes, & our Nana not being up to snuff, now was not a good time to have another kitten, nor to really afford one. We get no $ help for the ferals, and them 12 eat ALOT. Momma hated to just TNR Pearl as the other colony kitties were picking on her and she is so sweet - well she deserves a family to love her. After many calls & emails, Momma found a wonderful place that is cageless & no kill - in a big bright beautiful home on the north side of Chicago, that would take her. What a nice place it is - & believe me Momma inspected it. The kitties have a floor of the home for themselves with tons of big windows & perches & beds. They all looked HAPPY. & the place was so clean no smells at all - even in the isolation room. The lady there said "please do not worry - I promise I will find her a good home, and she will be happy here until she finds just the right place" As a matter of fact, after Pearl has a day or two of antibiotics & a bath, she will get to play in the kitten room with other babies for friends! There are 3 kittens just waiting to play with Pearl that someone left on the lady's back step in a bag...can you beleive that? The lady there is also friends with the lady that runs the TNR program Mom is registered with, so for sure we know it is an A-OK place. Momma of course cried the entire time, and is still crying & would go back to get her in a second. Amazing how in 6 days, they are in your heart. It hurts so much Momma says, but it was the right thing to do. Now, go have a wonderful life sweet little Pearly-girl! and please...no more new kitties come in the yard - it is just too hard for Momma.

Aside from Maizy really causing some trouble, all has been good. I have had no more problems with my eyes or sneezing, and my ears are all clean. Very curious thing indeed. We celebrated Nana's birthday yesterday. Mom found her a CD with pretty music & birds singing & chirping in it. It kinda made me hungry....
Momma took her out for dinner & they got dessert there so that there would be NO CAKE here. HAHA Maizy. I don't get it. I really do not like people food at all, except I will lick butter if I can get my paws on it. I was running & jumping the other day so funny that Momma was really laughing at my antics. Some days you feel like a nut...so the candy-bar advert says! I am not sure when I go back to the vet - Mom is in no hurry, just when my regular scheduled visit will be. FINE BY ME! Happy Talk like a pirate day! ARRGH!

 

gotcha & YAHOOO!!!

Well I must say a big thank you to all of you for your wishes & gifties for my gotcha day. I had a good day - I dozed on Nana's bed while she played swinging 50s music, I got some Merrick Surf & Turf food for dinner, and I got a few licks of vanilla ice cream, just a few though.

Now for the YAHOO! apparently whatever I had has now run it's course. My eyes are fine, The 3rd eyelid has not shown since Sunday and I am acting my normal self. Several times mom cleaned out my 1 ear - it had a bunch of brown wax ewww. So perhaps it was an infection, perhaps I just had a clogged ear...maybe the litter...the best thing is that I am finally ok - no more sneezles, or red eyes & feeling fine! Thanks you for all the thoughts and purrs & PTOP you sent my way. It was so nice to know everyone cared about me.

Momma:
well my sweet boy - I can hardly believe that 5 years have gone by since you launched yourself at me that special day. I know that some magical power was in motion to bring you here, so that I could be your Momma. I love all of my kitties with all my heart, but you Tig are my soul-kitty. We have a language you & I that only we know, and you always know when I need you, and every night, I know you are there next to me, keeping watch in case I need a belly to rub. We have been through a lot together, and I almost lost you more than once. You never fail to bring a smile to my face when you look at me with your "love you Momma" face. I look forward to many more years with you my furry little boy, as you are such a part of me forever. Love you my Tiggie-too

 

progress???

I dunno anymore. I guess I am doing better - I still have sneezing bouts - this morning I must have sneezed 6 -7 times in a row, and both 3rd eyelids still fluctuate - perhaps a bit less than before. I got sick to my tummy 2 times yesterday, momma thinks it may be from the baytril. I get it at dinner time & I still have 5 more days to take it. She didn't give it to me yet today, and she wasn't home to call the vet - so maybe no pill tonite to let my tummy feel better. My ears look ok now, the one was pretty icky looking, but now looks normal. So really no idea what the heck was/is wrong. I get to try the Dr. Elsey's litter when momma goes to get our noms. The Swheat Scoop is not bad, but meh not so good with 4 kitties. I wish TidyCat came unscented - but we cannot find it if it does - they just add MORE smells to it instead. Momma has run out of ideas what else it could be. The hardwood floors get cleaned with Murphy's soap - no harsh chemicals there. All our beds get washed (momma uses All Free & Clear cus she has allergies too) So I guess we are still thinking it was an inner ear infection. I am supposed to go back to the vet when I finish my meds......so I guess I am not worse, but not back to normal either...I will say that the vet office has been calling every few days to check on me, which is nice even though there really is not a huge change. Anyhows I truly thank everyone for the gifties & wishes. Momma is just frustrated is all, and yet there is not much more to do but wait & see.

 

well....

I think I am doing better. The last 2 days, I did some major running around the house like a wild man. Momma said it sounded like a herd of horses upstairs. My 3rd eyelids are still visible on & off. No pattern, very random, and it is still anywhere from a little bit to covering half my eyes. I am still sneezing here & there, and over the weekend Momma saw alot of brown dirt/wax in my ear & cleaned it out 2 times. This is leading her to believe that it is an inner ear infection from the start, or from the litter. We have this Swheat scoop stuff - Momma is not sure if she likes it or not... I still have another week of Baytril, so we will just see when it is finished. Oh man & I got to have some Merrick surf & turf! mmmmm meee likee! Hope everyone is doing well. Thanks for the gifties - mom will catch up on the rest of them in a day or so.
