Purrs and Updates

Happy Mew Year!!! Mom got to spend the entire week with us between Christmas and New Year's Day. She had to go back to work yesterday. Mom says having that week off with pay is one of the perks working at the university. And other than mom being sick for a couple of days, it was nice having her home. She didn't go out much while she was off, mainly because it was so cold here.

I wanted to update you on my lab work from my vet visit on December 26. My vet said that for a little old lady cat I am doing pretty well. My kidney and liver functions are still within normal range! I am mildly anemic, so now I'm on an iron supplement, probably for the rest of my days. My white cell count was also slightly elevated, so I'm on a liquid antibiotic. Both mom and I are pleased with the report.

Babies Tovah and Cinnamon are doing well. They still want to run from mom. It's part game and part we're-not-so-sure-about-this. Mom finally got them into the computer room tonight and crated. They girls go in tomorrow morning for their spays. Mom is hoping that Tovah won't start yowling while crated. Cinnamon is fine with it. They can't eat after 8:00pm. It's almost 11:00pm now and mom just crated them. They were confined in the room without food by 8:00pm.

Please keep our little girls in your purrs and prayers for a safe surgery. They will spend the night at the vet's office. Mom can pick them up after 9:00am on Friday. She said she will pick them up when she gets off work at 5:00pm.

Tell your people to stay inside if it is cold where you live!!! We know YOU are smart enough to stay in!



  1. I'll be purring for the girls to get through their spays uneventfully, and heal up fast!

  2. Good news about your tests, Clarissa...keep up the good work! The 'O' Cats came out for breakfast this morning, but I told them to stay hidden inside The Cat Hotel until the deep freeze is over! I worry about them, and start second-guessing our outside shelter set up.

  4. We’re glad to hear you’re doing well, Clarissa. We send lot of purrs to the girls and hope everything goes well with their surgeries.

  5. Love to you Clarissa. And to the babies! Everyone. Mommy too.

  6. I'm glad to hear the good Vet report and we're all sending purrs and prayers for the little sweeties.

  7. Our little girl foster just went in this morning for her spay! I think she will be adopted on Sunday providing her heart murmur has not gotten any worse. We will be kittenless, oh no! We have not been without fosters for months. It will feel so odd.

  8. Good for your labs, Clarissa ! Hope your little girls are home and recovering by now ! Purrs.
