Mancat Monday

Hi everyone, it's mes, Carmine!

As many of yous know, Lita's leg has been hurting hers a lot lately.  But mes, being the helpful brother mes is, mes sits ON hers to make hers leg feel better.  Mes used to do the same thing when the Mom had the same injury as Lita back in 2010.  Theys made the Mom wait five months to has surgery on hers foot, so mes would sit on the Mom's hurt and borken foot and purr.  The Mom said it hurt a lot for mes to sit on hers foot, but hers let mes stay there most of the time anyways because hers knows that kitty purrs can help heal bones.

Milita: Breathless in Denver

Hi everyone, it's Milita today.  

See what the Mom's friend, D, did to me?  He covered me over with a blanket.  I usually hate this, but I love him so much that I tolerated it so he could take my photo.

Lately, I have been having some trouble with my asthma.  The Mom was getting really worried because I had been doing so well at our new house.  She mentioned it to a friend, and the friend told her there are a lot of wildfires here in the Western part of the United States.  That is probably what's getting to me.  

In any case, I am still doing much better breathing-wise here than I did at our old place, even with the awful wildfires making it harder to breathe.  

The Mom has been having horrible sinus troubles and a sore throat, and she is surprised she hasn't had more problems with her asthma with the wildfires than she has had.

A Letter to Jewel on Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day

My dear Angel Jewel,

I cannot believe it's now been three years since we had to say good-bye to you on August 28, 2014.  Making that decision with you is still the hardest thing I've ever had to do.  I think of you and miss you every single day.  I wonder how you are doing at the Rainbow Bridge and hope and pray that you are happy there while you wait for us to join you someday.  

Even though I have not seen you at our new apartment, I'm pretty sure you know where we are and have visited us.  Carmine often goes into the "phone booth" to talk with you.  Did you tell him to become a little orange treat monster?  He has taken over your job of coming over and demanding treats from me (or D when he visits).  He has taken up talking much more than he ever used to, too.  When I come home from my church meeting on Tuesday nights, Carmine will yell at me until I give him another canned food snack.  I'm sure this makes you laugh as you watch from the Bridge.

The Black Cat Sees His Shadow: Book Review

I actually read this book a couple of months back, but then I found out I was at the top of a housing waiting list, and everything got a little nuts after that.  However, this book is a great one, so I still wanted to tell you all about it.

About the Book: The town of Lavendar is celebrating its annual Pumpkin Days Festival, and the town is buzzing with tourists.  On the eve of opening day, Sabrina finds out that she has a doppeldanger, Tia Hartwell.  Tia is a caricature artist.  People can hardly tell the two women apart.  Their similarities are striking - right down to their black cats.

Sabrina quickly learns that Tia has an enemy - bad-tempered Calvin Fisher, a jewelry vendor.  When Sabrina finds Fisher dead in his pickup truck, the police put Tia at the top of their suspect list.  Sabrina knows Tia didn't kill Fisher.  Along with her sidekick, Hitchcock, Sabrina must find a way to prove Tia innocent.

Carmine's Vet Visit

Hi everyone, it's mes, Carmine!

Mes wanted to post last week, but then the Mom gotted, "busy," so mes had to wait.  

Did yous know that today is National Take Your Cat to the Vet Day?  Since today has to do with the vet, mes thought it would be a good day to tell yous about my recent trip to the vet last week.

Since mes ams a senior kitty, the Mom makes sure mes gets a routine wellness exam by the vet every six months.  So mes went in for my routine wellness exam.  

Theys found out that me losted a pound these past three months.  The Mom wasn't very surprised by that because mes had a pancreatitis flare when hers was packing us up to come to our new home, but hers had hoped mes hadn't lost so much weight.  Mes weighed in at 9 pounds and 5 ounces.

But yous know what?!  Now mes gets to eat more prescription a/d to put the weight back on, and mes really likes those noms!
