No Rest

Mom came home from her trip last week on Thursday.  Every year she has to make this same trip for her workplace.  She used to be able to take a couple of days off when she got home.  Lately though, things are too busy for her.  She was back to work on Friday.

I was back to work too!  Mom picked up some groceries on her way home on Thursday.  Of course, I had to inspect things, you know, to make sure she got the right stuff an all.

Well, I noticed she bought a different kind of cereal.  She's usually been gettin cinnamon.  This time I noticed the package said high fiber.  Are you sure, mom?

I tried my best to taste it, but mom said I didn't need to.

Ok, mom, if you say so.  But you know I'm there for you...just ask...

Toesday with Minnie

::whispers::  Yello!
It's me, Minnie!
Well, maybe this lump is me...

Mom abandoned us again to go on another trip for her workplace.  She's gonna be gone for like 10 squillion days!  She left this mornin with her huge clothes packy case and Wriggley, with his stuff for camp.  I'm whisperin and hidin cause I thought I heard the pet sitter lady.

If I could show you my pawsies, they might look like this...

Wait...what was that?  I think someone's here...I gotta go...
Have a great Toesday and week, everybuddy!

Location, Location, Location!

Yeah, I'm hanging out on my top of my cat cave again.

Mom wonders why I like it here so much.
Then, as the heater came on...


She finally figured it out, mol!

Suspicious, Yet Thankful, Thursday

Since mom tricked me last week and closed me in my little cage, I'm reluctant to nap in it any more.  And it was such a nice place to hide, too.


Mom got the call from the Doc on Toesday with my and Minnie's results.  Everything was ok for both of us.  Thanks, everybuddy for the good thoughts!  We could feel it and they helped!

Mom was hoping for something more definite to explain my accidents.  My kidneys aren't too good anymore, so maybe that's why I'm leaking a bit.  The good news is that all my bloodwork numbers hadn't really changed since my last check up!

At any rate, I'm supposed to take an herbal tea pill...don't ask me to say what it is, much less spell it...but it's supposed to help me out.  We'll see. 

Mom keeps notes on all of our habits and since all of this started, she has been scribbling down who, what, when, where, and how in terms of our litter box doins.  ::sigh::  And she goes around smelling every place I've been sleeping.  She's crazy, I tell you!
I hope this herb pill works...for all of our sanity!

I WAS in Trouble!

After my little, er, accident on Sunday, mom was able to put my bed back together on Tuesday.  We spent two nights sleeping on the floor - mom said she didn't trust me on the bed without the mattress protector, and we had to wait for it to dry.  Tuesday night was our first night sleeping on the bed again.  You won't believe this, and I'm not sure I should even admit it...but... it happened again!

Mom might never have known except that Minnie was sticking her nose in this one spot on the bed... ::sigh::  At least this time my mess did not go all the way  through to the mattress protector.

Regardless, I was still in trouble!  Mom made me go on this squillion hour long car ride the V-E-T!

First, though, mom came home from work early, and I just happened to be having a nap in my cave, and she shut the bathroom door on me!  (That's where my cave is.).  She came in later and, as I was still in the middle of my nap, shut me in my cave!  Minnie must have been in trouble too for telling on me, cause mom came back a few minutes later and put her in the other ptu.

Oh, I begged and pleaded with mom to stop the car and let me out; to turn around and take us back home.  She wouldn't listen.  ::sigh::

Minnie and I had to be poked and prodded.  They took some our blood and they even stuck us both to take some of our pee!  Can you believe that?!?  Our blood and pee has to take some tests.  I hope they pass.  The Doc will know the results next week and will hopefully be able to help me with my, er, piddling problem.

In the mean time, mom says she's thankful that I don't like to sleep on her head!

The First Easy Sunday of 2012

Happy New Year, furriends!  I don't know about yours, but here, things have gotten off to a not-so-auspicious start.

I must admit to an embarrassing problem: I sometimes have accidents in my sleep.  Mom is not really sure if I'm sleeping or have to go so bad I can't be bothered to make it to the litter box.  It's not something I care to talk about, 'cause like I said, it's rather embarrassing!

Well, I had an accident on the bed this morning...and I just happened to be cuddled up with mom...
She woke and noticed the smelly blanket first...and then the wet spot on her leg!

Mom got up and took Wriggley out to do his business - she didn't want any other accidents in the house! Then she had to clean herself up, and then tear the bed apart and start some laundry.

Of course, this meant all of our breakfast was delayed (but somehow mom managed to make coffee straight away...hmmm...but that is really a good thing...).
Some time ago, Mom got a waterproof mattress protector so she wouldn't need to banish me from the my bed.  The good news is that it worked, but we only have one.  So now my bed has to stay torn apart until everything dries (we don't have a dryer).

I'm just gonna take it easy here for a bit, and then maybe find a sunbeam to enjoy, or perhaps catch an episode of bird tv - we've had some very good programs lately, including the hawk again!

As things have started, the year can only get better!
