Man Cat Monday

I've had a really rough time of it lately. First I was getting used to hanging out in this room, eating good food and enjoying my private heater vent. Then a couple of days ago, I am forced into a box and hauled off to the scary place where I went about a week ago (where they stole my blood). I didn't go without a good fight, but they tossed a blanket over my head and I lost the battle. I was one pissed off cat.
When I woke up I was a bit sore and groggy. I'm over that now, but I have no desire to come out from behind the couch. Everything is blocked off so I can't get under the couch. In the meantime, I'm definitely getting the feeling I'm being wooed by a certain fluffy princess.

This morning she brought me a ball to play with, only she couldn't quite stuff it under the door.

Then her velvet paws and sweet face appear under the door. She is beautiful but I really don't feel much like conversation right now. I appreciate her efforts to get to know me, but I'm going to sulk behind my couch for a few more days.

We love the name and we're sure you'll get over sulking.

BTW: Chasing each others tails is a perfectly valid reason for becoming members of the tail chasers club!

Oh Nigel, isn't Ellie just the sweetest?! You'll be washing each other soon we hope. Now that you gained a real name and lost 'some things' else there's nothing in your way to a happy and save future. Yay!

You know what our grandma says? It's better to be pissed off than pissed on. I think we can all learn something from that, MOL!

Our heart fluttered seeing the ball. Ellie is the sweetest floofy princess ever:)

Sulking can be good. It worries the humans and stuff!

Poor Nigel, it must have been very scairty at the vet's office. Everything is new and different for you now!

It sure was sweet of Ellie to bring you a toy.

Poor Nigel!! Hope you start feeling better soon!

Ellie seems to have a little crush on you. Things could get very exciting!!!

Ohhh Nigel, that is so wonderful that Ellie is trying to make you feel so wanted ... she is a sweetie and knows that you are one too! We hope you start feeling back to normal really quickly after your hoo haa's got stolen, and we think Nigel is just a pawsome name for you! Hang in there, sweet boy!

Nigel,

I like the name---handsome name for a handsome cat. Ellie wants you to come out and play! My Lucky cat tries to share his toys with two mama cats outside trying by pushing them under the screen door.
