Questions Answered and Other Stuff

It looks like we are going to have thunderbloomers here at any minute. The sky is dark and there are flashes of lightning!  Unless it gets really loud, storms don't really bother any of us kitties. Sister Serendipity will sit in the window and watch the storms. The rest of us tend to sleep through them. At least mom made it to work before the storm got here.

A couple of kitties left questions for me in their comments about yesterdays post. I thought I would take a couple of minutes to answer them.

Katie Isabella wanted to know how old I am.  I turned 12 this year, probably in June. Mom adopted me on August 27, 2000 when I was 8 weeks old!  I was 4 years old when I started over-grooming my tummy. Mom thought it was in response to my human grandpa being so sick. I was with him during the days while mom was at work.  He went into the hospital in July 2004, then move to a nursing home, the back to the hospital. He crossed the Bridge in late August 2004.  Mom has taken me to a dermatologist, and he recommend that we try I different food. Mom has tried many different foods and none of them have made a difference.  So now, about ever three months, I have to get a Depo shot.  Mom doesn't like it, but it is the only thing that works with me.

Prancer Pie asked if I kissed my mom with my dirty mouf! The answer is YES!!!  Mom will scoop me up and kiss my nose and sometimes she will kiss me right on my kitty mouf!!!  She calls me her "baby girl" and "Rissa Roo the Kitty Poo".  I got that nickname from her dad when I was a kitten. Actually, mom said she knew he fell in love with me when he started calling me s**thead!  Mom didn't think that was a very nice name for a cute little kitten like I was! So maybe I actually learned those bad words from him!!! MOL

Me and the crew hope everyone has a safe and dry Tuesday!

Cuss Like A Sailor Day (Not Really!!!)

Happy Monday!  Fall is in the air and the nights are getting cooler here. It was 42 degrees when mom left for work this morning. But it is sunny and bright, and while mom is at work, I will be napping in every sun puddle I can find! That's what most of us did yesterday, too.  Being a cat is hard work sometimes. All that eating kibble, washing up, and napping makes us tired!

Anymew, mom took me to the v-e-t on Saturday. I had to get my depo injection again. It's the only thing that makes my belly feel better so that I stop pull my fur out.  I don't mind it when mom puts me in the PTU (pet transport unit) and I usually don't mind riding in the car. I actually don't mind being at the vet's office. What I do mind is when the tech and the vet start weighing me and poking around on me. This visit was no different.

As soon at the tech lifted me out of the carrier I started growling. She put me on the scale and I hissed. I do weigh 9 lbs., which is a good weight for my build. My regular vet was out of the office, so a substitute vet filled in for him. This doctor was very nice, as far as vets go! He trimmed my talons claws and I growled and hissed some more. Then he looked into my ears. They were really dirty so he cleaned them. More hissing and growling ensued. Finally he asked, "Where did you learn such language, young lady?"  Mom told him I learned to cuss from Fiona!

Soon it was all over. I got my injection and it was back into the PTU and home!  Mom will be checking the injection site for any cyst that may develop. The last shot caused one, but then it went away.

Oh, Jazzpurr and Spunky get to go for their annuals next Saturday!

Our mom is so dumb!!!

We are still meowing out loud about what our silly mom did yesterday. Our mom has been parking in the university's stadium parking lot and riding the Cardinal Shuttle to the other side of campus where her office is. It usually works out better that way since parking is almost unlimited there.  When she left work yesterday, she hopped on the shuttle and rode to the stadium, got off the shuttle and started walking to her SUV...and then she remembered that she didn't park in the stadium lot yesterday!  She had parked in the designated "blue" lot that the shuttle bus had already passed. Mom had to get back on the shuttle and ride almost the full circuit around the campus again to get to her vehicle. Isn't that funny?!!!!

We are also purring for the family of our friend, Sheriff John Wayne, who crossed the Bridge yesterday. He was part of the Looney Coons who live in California. He has joined his brofur Bart (who greeted him with a good washing!).

Sheriff John Wayne, ? - 10/12/2012

Gone too long....

I must apologize for disappearing again. It seems that mom gets busy and forgets to help us post!  She just got back from Gatlinburg, TN on Sunday.  Our Aunty Jen had rented a cabin in the Smokey Mountains for three days/four nights. Her now ex-boyfriend bailed out on her, sticking her with the cabin that was too late to get a refund on to cancel. Stupid boys (men!).  Anymew, since the place was paid for and Aunty Jen didn't want to lose her money, she asked mom to go with her.

Mom said it was beautiful all day Thursday and Friday (they drove there on Wednesday). Saturday was cold and rainy, but she said the clouds surrounded the mountains and at times they couldn't see anything but the trees right by the upper deck on the cabin! Mom said it was still beautiful, but in a different way.

She also saw a lot of birds and squirrels, one ground hog, katydids, moths, butterflies, and blue tailed skinks.

Mom didn't take this picture, but this is what a blue tailed skink looks like:
We think he'd make a nice snack!

We are also remembering September 11, 2001. Me (Clarissa) and Sable were the only two kitties from our house who were around at that time - and Sable would have still been with his cat-mommy.
