Wordy Wednesday- Purrs Please

Mom's a wee bit late with our post because she just got home from the emergency v-e-t after taking me there.

Unfortunately I got a bit plugged up again and I was getting desperate and I even threw up...and my mom knew that meant I could not wait until morning to get me some help.    Mom had to leave me there.  

Hopefully I will be....

Ginger, Unplugged

by morning.

Please purr a little purr for me ok?  I'm sure I'll be fine and I'm happy to get the help...but mom is worried.

Ginger is now back home after a successful procedure to get him unblocked.  We will have to continue to monitor him and give him medication as this is going to be a chronic condition with him. 

Thank you for your purrs!

Mitten Monday

What's going on?  What's in that big box?

Momma, you are braver than I it safe?  Is it a cat tree or something fun for us? 

No, nothing fun for us...except the packaging!!!  Turns out it was a boring bathroom cabinet...sigh.

Black Friday

Forget about shopping 'til you drop today.

Today is the day to honor black cats everywhere.    Let's bring new meaning to Black Friday.

House Panthers rock!!!

This graphic was made by our awesome furriends at Zoolatry a long time ago and that is me, Cory , in the upper left corner.  This was made before Nigel joined our family.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving my garden furriends!   Today is not officially a meeting of the Society of Feline Gardeners.  In honor of the holiday we are taking a day off.  I've even asked Mr. Linky to take the day off.   I hope all of you kitties are at home enjoying a feast with your family.

I have so much to be thankful for.

I'm thankful for my family, who saved my life almost 10 years ago when they found me...near death in the garden.  At the time I could only hope and pray that someone would love me.  I never dared to think the lovely garden where I was found would one day be mine.

I am thankful that my garden is beautiful no matter what time of year it is.  Even when it gets cold and soggy, there are beautiful colors and interesting things everywhere.

I'm thankful for my fur siblings who each are special and have their own rescue stories to tell.   I'm especially thankful for my woofie Grete who adores me and protects me.

I'm thankful that I have the most wonderful mom and dad who understand me and love me.  I am thankful for the wonderful food I get to eat.  I know it may sound crazy...but I'm thankful for my wonderful v-e-t who helps me stay healthy and makes sure I get medicine when I'm sick.

I'm thankful for my garden beds that provide food for my family and double as a claw sharpener.

I'm thankful for all of my CB furriends.  I'm thankful for Alfie Marshall, Vice Purresident of the Society of Feline Gardeners and my bested furriend.

What are you thankful for?

Grete Woofie I was a part of a conspiracy to abandon my kitties for a long weekend.  I admit it.

Does that make me a bad dog?   No.   I do feel a bit guilty.

Honest.  Which is more than I can say for my kitty siblings.  No matter what they do they NEVER feel guilt.

Even though I was visiting the worlds biggest, self flushing litter box...I think my kitties would have hated it.  We had nice weather for a few days but on our last night there a BIG storm rolled in.  The wind blew and the rain fell.  I had to hold on strong so I wouldn't blow away in the wind when I had to go outside know.

Us doggies don't get indoor litter boxes like you kitties.

With a face like this, it won't take long for my kitties to forgive me.

Whoa...finally!  Finally...

Did you know that we were ::shudders:: ABANDONED this past weekend?  Never mind that mom had our kitty sitter come by and feed us an unlimited quantity of Fancy Feast and other treats...

We were ABANDONED...with no access to the way to communicate with my furriends.

I understand my mom made a feeble attempt to fool my furriends by commenting with my password from a remote location. 

Momma Ellie watched over everyone...being the momma it's her job. 

Oh yeah...that so called loyal woofie sister of mine was in on it the whole time!!!!

Society of Feline Gardeners- Thursday in the Garden with Jonesie


Welcome back to my garden!  It's a good thing that I got some work done last weekend.  We had a big rain and wind storm move in on Wednesday so I won't be headed back to the garden any time soon.

I had a VERY productive weekend and I can hardly wait to show you!

Let's get this party started mom.  My club members are here... 

Do I have to claw your leg to get your attention?

There, that's better!  I love you too mom.

Now...on to my garden.

Dad got out his shovel when I pawed at the beet garden.  I reminded him that the beets were telling me that it was time to come out of the dirt.  I could tell by the way the dirt felt under my paws that they were ready, but sometimes you have to listen too.

Yes dad...the potatoes wanted to come out too.

Good job Dad.  You know what?  I'm a great gardener, but when it comes to digging out the veggies, my paws need help.  Dad is much more talented with a shovel than I'll ever be.

See what teamwork can do?  There were carrots that were ready to harvest so we dug them up too.  One of the best things about being a garden cat is being able to provide for my family.  They always oooh and aaaaah when they see what I've grown.  It's a much better response than showing up with a deaded mousie.

I always wait for Dad when he puts away the garden tools.  I wouldn't dream of leaving him alone to do that by himself.

So...when you saw Figgy and Bennette snoozing earlier this week?  Yeah...I was there too with Dad.  After a hard day's work in the garden, we deserve a rest.

Wordy Wednesday

I'm sure you're wondering how my baby girl is doing.  I've been keeping a close watch over her ever since she came home.  Mom gives Cory medicine and she takes like a champ.  I'm very proud of her.

Mom wants us to stop eating dry food and change over to wet food.  I'm ok with this, but it's hard getting all of us kitties to agree.  Mom said we can take a few weeks to adjust so for now we are still getting dry food but we are getting wet food twice a day.  We are also trying lots of different foods to see what we like best.  I don't think we'll ever agree.  So far we still adore classic chicken Fancy Feast.  We also like the turkey Wellness canned food and the Tikki Cat chicken.   We didn't like some of the other stuff mom brought home...but we love her for trying.

Hi there my furriends!  Guess what?  The vet called my mom to check up on me. They asked about my pee!  How bizarro is that?  I mean...who calls you up to check on your pee?  And my mom...being equally bizarro...TELLS THEM!  I get no privacy around here.

So I have been a very good girl, taking my medicine and making it easy on my mom. She doesn't call me "sweetie mitten" for no reason!  Mom tells me I'm doing much better but she's nervous I might have a relapse.  I admit I did try and pee in the kitchen one more time but mom saw me gearing up for it and she picked me up and carried me to the litter box.  I thanked her for the ride and then did my thing...where I was supposed to do it.

Mom told me I was a good girl.

I knew that!

Tuxie Tuesday

Figaro, stop inching your way closer to me...

There...that's tuxies gotta stick together, but we don't have to be THAT together!
