Furminator Friday

I've been here 2 months now. I am allowing my human mom to pet me and hold me, which makes her very happy. I was having trouble getting stressed out and I started pulling out the fur on my tail. I still have a bald spot and it will take some time for the fur to grow back. My mom and dad were so worried about me they talked to my doctor. They are now sneaking something into my Fancy Feast. I can see her doing it, but it all tastes so good I don't really care. I heard mom say "kitty prozac". I don't know what that means, but it's the reason I'm doing so much better. I'm still not quite ready to leave my safe room full time, but I was let out at night again and I did not pull out anymore tail fur.

I got a surprise the other day when she announced that I was going to be "furminated". I don't know about you, but that sounded kind of scary to me. Should I name him George? Well this "furmination" thing is something awesome. I loved it. Now can someone explain who this other cat is? He doesn't say much and he smells like me....

PS...dad reported that the baby raccoon was moved from the hidey hole in the willow. We suspect there were more babies and the momma was moving them to a new safer spot and we just saw the last one before the move was complete. We are on raccoon watch...

Nigel, we are amazed you have any furs left, with the size of that furball! You will feel much more comfy without all that on you. We are happy to hear that you are feeling better:)

That's a lot of floof. I'm afraid of my mom getting one of those furminator things. I don't want to lose all of my floof.

Hi Nigel, there will be an award for you over at our place tomorrow (Saturday).

Any pics of the baby Raccoons? We'd so like to see them.

Happy Easter!

Nigel I'm nervous, Mommy said something like "I have to have one of those" and sprang from the chair... I don't want another cat, even if it smells like me.

Adjusting to a new home indoors can be stressful. You are very lucky that your beans are doing so much to make you comfortable. When you get fully settled, you will be so happy. It sounds like you have made amazing progress. That other kitty next to you must have heard how awesome the furminator is, and is waiting for his turn.
