Carmine's Tips for Getting Gotted


Hi everyone, it's mes, Carmine!

Guess what?! My Gotcha Day was on Friday! The Mom is late in helping mes get my post up, but better late than nevers, right?

Mes claimed the Mom 15 years ago when mes was a small, 14-week-old kitten. And now mes is a wise, old mancat, so....

This year, mes thought mes would offer some advice on getting gotted so all our homeless kitty pals cans find a nice home and a loving human like mes did. 

Be Adorable: If yous bes a kitty, yous already has this covered! But, it doesn't hurt to do something cute so that the humans think you bes extra adorable. Try rolling around on the floor near the humans, making a cute, "mew," or playing with the humans' shoestrings.

Thankful Thursday with Carmine

Hi everyone, it's mes, Carmine!

A few weeks ago, mes wented to the vet guy and had a little nap. When mes woke up, mes noticed mes had a couple more teefers missing. 

When the vet tech lady brought mes back to the Mom, hers was telling the Mom that mes doesn't have many teefers left. But the Mom said mes still has more teefers than Tylan does. MOL!

Here is my dental chart. See all the teefers that are shaded in? Those be the ones that mes no longer has.

My dental went well. Mes healed up nicely.

Fickle Humans

Tylan staring at Carmine's SureFeed.
Hey, you! Open up and let me have those kibbles!

Hi everyone, it's me, Tylan!

Have you ever noticed how fickle humans are? They can't seem to make up their minds, and it's quite confusing sometimes!

When the Mom lady brought me home, she noticed how much I loved food right away. I would gobble all of my food down and then shove Carmine out of the way and steal his! 

Carmine is a grazer. He likes to eat some of his food and save some for later. I don't know why you would save any for later when you can eat it NOW. He's a strange mancat sometimes.

When Carmine wanted a few bites of his kibble, the Mom lady would put some down for him, but then I would come and eat it all, leaving none for Carmine.

She tried to put Carmine's kibble on top of the counter, but I'd just get up there and steal it all when she wasn't watching. 

She could feed us our canned food meals in different rooms so Carmine could eat as much as he wanted, but she didn't know how on earth Carmine was going to be able to get any kibble, when, every time she put some out, I came along and ate it all. 

Carmine wasn't getting enough to eat. The Mom lady wasn't happy about that. 

So she got one of these contraptions she calls a SureFeed. It is a microchip feeder,. The Mom lady programmed Carmine's chip into the feeder but not mine. So, Carmine's SureFeed only opens it's lid for him. Isn't that mean?!

Carmine and Tylan's (Fun) Vet Adventure

Carmine and Tylan sit together on a bench in an exam room at the vet.

Tylan: Hey Carmine, isn't this fun?

Carmine: Fun?

Tylan: Yeah! You come here, and all the people make a fuss over you and give you hugs and tummy rubs! 

Carmine: The vet peoples are nice and all, but mes would still rather bes in my heated bed at home.

Mancat Monday

Tylan: ::Comes over to Carmine in his heated bed:: Hi Carmine!

Carmine: Hi.

Tylan: You don't mind if I hop in there and snuggle with you, do you?

Carmine: Tylan, this bed is really made for one kit-

Umm...okay, I guess you're hopping in anyway.

Tylan: Isn't this great?

Carmine: It's too bad social distancing doesn't apply to cats....

In all seriousness, though, we hope you are all staying safe and well. Hang in there, everyone!
