Photo Hunt - Feather

Today's theme is FEATHER.

Laila has loved feathers since she was a kitten.
And don't you just love her feather hat?


Sweet and beautiful little Georgie is still at the vets, and her vet bills have been so very high ... many of you know that at the Wildcat Woods, Cheri and family care for many ferals and abandoned kitties, giving them shelter and food and all the TLC they need.  Please help now, if you can!  This auction is just in time for some holiday gifting, with wonderful items from Cheri's own Vintage Treasures shop, and new items are being added all the time ... so stop by several times!  And please, spread the word.  Thank you!

More Stolen Bloods and Xray

 Now where are we going, Mom?

 NO!  Not back at the v-e-t!

 Dr. Mindy getting me ready for the picture she's going to take of my innerds.

 These cute techs are stealing more of my bloods. They told Mom I was very good for them.  Rechecked red blood cells and they were the same.  Stole more to send to Michigan for more extensive thyroid testing.

Everything looked fine in my xray.  One thing that was a surprise was that up on the left you can see a microchip!  Mom never knew I had one and the shelter didn't check either because I was an owner surrender.  Then back on the right side on my back leg there is something.  Dr. Mindy had never, ever seen anything like it before.  When I was neutered years ago, they used a staple rather than stitches!  OUCH!  It's not bothering me, so it will stay.

So now we sit and wait...

Thankful Thursday

Sometimes when Mom opens a can of tuna, she'll let us have a little bit as a treat.  As soon as Laila saw the flashy box, she ran away.  Silly girl!

I'm going back to see Dr. Mindy today.  All your comments and well wishes have meant so much to us!  At least it won't be as bitter cold as it was Monday!

Stolen Blood Results

Nothing showed up in the blood work as to why I've lost all that weight!
Everything was okay except the red blood cell count was a little low possibly a sign of early anemia.  We were also told  something else could be happening that just hasn't presented itself yet like diabetes, early kidney disease or cancer.  We will retest in 3 months to see if any changes.  In the meantime, Mom will be taking me back to see Dr. Mindy to maybe go on some vitamins.  Mom may ask her to do an xray of my innerds too.  Thank you all so much for your purrs and prayers!

Toesies Tuesday

Minchie chillaxin from his visit to the stabby place yesterday.  He got stabbed a total of four times!  Once for a shot for some bacteria in his colon and three times trying to steal his bloods.  Dr. Mindy will call today with results.  He has lost two pounds (now 6.18 pounds) and we are suspecting thyroid problems.  Urine checked out great and no CRF!  Purrs it is nothing too serious.

Mancat Monday

 Minchie knows most of you wouldn't dream of laying in their PTU's like this.

Little does he know he goes back to the v-e-t this afternoon for a checkup after last Friday's reschedule.

Easy Like Sunday Morning

We are going to be hibernating the next few days as below zero wind chills come to town tomorrow.  Doubt if anyone will want to brave the Chicago weather to join us on our cat tree.

Yesterday when Mom took Minchie to the vet for a noon appointment, they were waiting for an emergency to come in. A dog got hit by a car. Told them we would reschedule so Dr. Mindy could attend to the badly hurt dog. The owners had just adopted her on Monday and not sure how she got loose. Brought her in on a stretcher covered with blankets and was alert. Poor girl, we hope she makes it. Keeping her and her family in our prayers. We rescheduled for Monday so we'll find out then.

Today's theme is BOOKS.

Minchie likes to jump up on top of the bookshelf that holds a lot of Mom's books.

Flashback Friday

Today's flashback is from November 2007

I don't know why Mom waited until a day in the 40's to give me my first ice cube. Interesting but no taste. Maybe if she added some tuna juice?

Thankful Thursday

We are thankful for all the days we got to have the windows and slider open for whiffies.  But we think those days are over now with the cold settling in here in ChiTown.
