Thursday In The Garden With Jonesie

Meow!  It's been another wonderful week in the garden.  I have to be grateful for the past week because for a week or so I will be locked in the house, forced to look at my beautiful garden through a window.  I'll tell you more about that later.  First, I have to get your attention back on important stuff...gardening!

Dad brought home a whole bunch of really interesting plants.  Then he brought home some posts and some wire...I was really curious.
I helped mom and dad line them all up and measure out spacing.  I'm concerned because they didn't finish the job...the plants are still just sitting in their pots where we placed them.  Slackers!

What's going to happen to them if I'm out of commission for a whole week...or so?
Mom and dad call it a mini vineyard in progress!  I'll be a granny cat by the time they make anything out of it.

So about me...I got hauled off to the emergency v-e-t on Wednesday night.  I wanted to drink water, but I wouldn't do it.  Then I'd lay down by my dish.  Grete kept sniffing me and then pawing on mom.  Mom and dad freaked.  Then I got stuffed in a carrier.  Turns out I have an ulcer on my tongue!  It hurts to eat or drink.  I was given fluids and a shot and I've been told I must stay inside until I'm all healed up.  What's a garden cat without her garden?  I also need to stay away from everyone else for awhile because they think it's because of a respiratory infection.  Sigh.  Please send purrs...my garden needs me!  Do you think I can get a walkie talkie to snoopervise my dad from afar?

OH no! We are purring for you and your tongue. That sounds like it hurts badly. Be well so that you can snoopervise those grapes (are they for eating or wine making?!)

MoMo said...

I am purring hard for you Jonesie. Tongue ulcers are no fun, according to SS who gets them sometimes.

Busby and Raymond said...

Jonesie, we are sorry about your tongue. We think your Mom should make you a series of signs to hold up to the window so you can snoopervise. Stuff like "Plant it there!" and "Water that plant!"

Feel better soon!

Gandalf, Grayson, Whitey and Gracie said...

Goodness, Jonesie! You poor sweetie pie. Hopefully you will be able to eat and drink and start feeling much better very soon!

Do not worry about the garden too much. We think that even if your Mom and Dad can't handle it, Mother Nature can and will!

PS. Hi, Cory! xo♥

Oh sweetest Jonesie, what a scare! Heal up quickly, so your humans don't mess everything up. It's good to know to be needed, so we're sure you'll recover fast. Will you have to have surgery?
Many healing purrs, Siena & Chilli, your Gardening Cat furriends

A mini vineyard? How cool! We watched an old I Love Lucy show where they stomped the grapes to make wine. . . will your mom and dad do that? If so, please get pictures!!!

And we're sending BIG purrs for your tongue! Please get better soon!

Simba said...

Oh, JOnesie, you just look after getting better and don't worry about having to snoopervise in the garden for a little while. Your tongue is all important. Hope you are back to your old self real soon!

Parker said...

Jonesie, we all have our purrers on high for a speedy recovery for you!

Goldie, Shade and Banshee said...

Sweet Jonesie, we are so sorry to hear about your poor tongue! You rest and try to take it easy and let that medicine take it's course.

Big purrrrrs and {hugs} from out here in the woods.

The Island Cats said...

Wow! You're beans are gonna have their own vineyard?? Mom thinks that's really cool! Will they stomp their own grapes to make wine??

And Jonesie, we're so sorry you got a sore on your tongue! We hope it heals fast so you can get back outside to snoopervise that vineyard!

Daisy said...

Oh Jonesie, I am so sorry you are feeling poorly and have an ulcer on your little tongue. Feel better soon!

Everycat said...

Oh Jonesie! Poor you, ulcers on tongues are super horrible and hurt so much. Our Gerry knows about this and he sends you extra purrs so your tongue heals up nicely. If you don't start drinking, ask the vet for some pain meds, that makes drinking/eating easier.

We LOVE the picture of you sharpening your claws on the human leg!

Rumbly purrs and get well soon Jonesie!

The Monkeys said...

Oh Jonesie! We are sending some pretty intense purrs to you so your ulcer clears up soon! Ouch, you poor thing!

The Paw Relations said...

Oh Jonesie! We hope you feel better soon. Ulcers are nasty.

Kea said...

Oh, Jonesie! We're so sorry you're not feeling well. An ulcer on your tongue sounds really icky and painful.

We're sending TONS of purrs and healing Light that you are better soon!

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan, Yuu-Chan and Bibi-Chan said...

Poor Jonesie! We're so sorry to hear about your sore mouth and being locked inside and separated from the others! But we want you to get better quickly and if that's the only way, we'll take it.

And good for Grete for looking out for you and warning your Mom. What a girl!

CCL Wendy said...

Poor Jonesie! Of course we are sending you our purring vibes times three to help you heal. It must be very miserable with an ulcer on your tongue.

So, try to be understanding while you're in the house for the week, because it's all for your own good. And I'm sure the garden will survive, but will need you even more once you're better. So, don't worry. The most important thing is your health, right now.

Get better very soon.

The Whiskeratti said...

Oh Jonesie, that is so awful! We hope you recover very quickly. And Grete - you did an awesome job of looking after her.

Jacqueline said...

Oh, Jonesie, we're very sorry you are feeling poorly and hope you feel better soon...Mom and Dad will care for your garden until you return, but that walkie talkie idea sounds great!...Sending loud purrs and best wishes for a speedy recovery, sweetheart...xo...Calle, Halle, Sukki

Sammy and Andy said...

Jonesie, we are sending healing purrs that you will be A-ok very, very, very soon so you can get back to your gardening and snoopervising. xxxxxxxxx

meowmeowmans said...

Oh, we hope you are all betters soon, Jonesie! We are purring and praying for a speedy recovery. It's hard snoopervising from afar, isn't it?

Teri and the cats of Furrydance said...

Ouch! Sorry to hear about your tongue and "bedrest" with no garden time! Hope the meds help you get back to gardening soon!

The Kool~Kittie~Krew said...

Junior and Orion said...

Eric and Flynn said...

Poor Jonesie. We hope your tongue is soon healed so you can get back in your garden and do what you enjoy most.

Lynx217 said...

LMAO that first pic reminds me of when Curzon was a kitten and he either thought my leg was a scratching post or a climbing pole! He still will reach up and do the grab though, but never while I'm standing up and not with claws out! I guess I'm lucky!

Tatyanna (and Dorian too) said...

You poor baby! I feel confident that you will be feeling better soon, but I know how much you hate to be kept from your garden! Wasn't there a neighborhood cat recently stopping by to help out a little (we have been out of town and off the blogs for awhile)? Well, feel better and we are sending good purrs to you and the others in your brood!

Alasandra said...

We are purring that you are well ASAP and back in your garden where you belong. Make the beans pamper you while you are recuperating. Might as well enjoy it we say.

The Mom got a different variety of strawberries from the neighbor across the street and some Johnny Jump Ups that she planted today and the electricity was off this morning so we are WAY behind on our blogging. ~AFSS
