Milita's Monday

Milita in her heated bed.
Hi everyone, it's Milita today.

I know it has been a long time since I posted on here, hasn't it?  I thought it was about time I posted an update about me. 

After I wrote this post, I started taking Tramadol for my leg.  Being pilled twice a day was really upsetting me, though.  To the point where I would hide under the Mom's bed for hours and hours afterward.  The Mom didn't think it was helping any more than the gabapentin, so she talked to the vet, and they decided to put me back on the gabapentin.  While I hate the taste of that liquid, I don't hide afterward.  Since the 0.8ml twice a day wasn't doing a whole lot for my leg, the Mom and the vet decided to try me at 1ml twice a day instead.  

I also won an Assisi Loop from our friends over at The Conscious Cat.  The Mom is trying to get me used to it slowly.  She hopes it will help my leg pain.  

So what have you all been up to lately?  Please share with me in the comments!

Blue Buffalo Wilderness Chicken Tasty Toppers Review #ChewyInfluencer

When you have a cat with chronic pancreatitis, mealtime can become quite a challenge!  Sometimes I put what I call, "incentive," on Carmine's food to entice him to eat more.  These, "incentives," include baby food, appetizers, and pouches of cat food toppers.  So when I saw that Chewy was offering Blue Buffalo Wilderness Tasty Toppers as an option for review this month, I was excited to see if Carmine would find this, "incentive," a tasty one!

FTC Disclosure: We received a case of 24 Blue Buffalo Wilderness Tasty Toppers Wild Cuts Tasty Chicken Morsels in Savory Gravy Grain-Free Cat Food Toppers as part of Chewy's Blogger Outreach Program for a fair and honest review.  Receiving the case of Blue Buffalo Wilderness Tasty Toppers did not influence my (or my cats') opinions in any way.  All opinions expressed on Fur Everywhere are our own.

Blue Buffalo Wilderness Tasty Toppers make a great cat food topper for dry or wet food.  You can also feed the topper as a treat.  The chicken tasty toppers contain no chicken or poultry by-product meals, wheat, corn, soy, artificial colors, preservatives, or flavors.  I really like that chicken is the first ingredient in the chicken tasty toppers.

Blue Buffalo Wilderness Tasty Toppers are also available in duck and salmon.

I was a little nervous about whether Carmine and Lita would like the tasty toppers because it's been really hit-or-miss with grain-free food and treats with them.

It turns out that Carmine and Lita really like these tasty toppers!  Carmine even ate most of the meat, not just the gravy, I gave him!

I will definitely be putting these in the, "incentives," rotation for Carmine.

You can purchase a case of Blue Buffalo Wilderness Tasty Toppers Wild Cuts Tasty Chicken Morsels in Savory Gravy Grain-Free Cat Food Toppers on Chewy.com.  You'll receive free shipping for orders of $49 or more.

Twelve Angry Librarians Book Review

I absolutely adore the Cat in the Stacks mystery series, and I had been anxiously awaiting the arrival of Twelve Angry Librarians: Cat in the Stacks Mystery.  It did not disappoint!

Charlie is stressed out because as the interim library director at Athena College, he's going to have to give the welcome speech for the Southern Academic Libraries Association conference, which is being hosted in Athena this year.  As if this weren't stressful enough for him, the keynote speaker is Charlie's nemesis from library school.

It's been 30 years since Charlie has seen his nemesis, Gavin Fong, but he is still the same know-it-all arrogant man Charlie remembers, and he still manages to get under everyone's skin.

In his keynote speech, Gavin shares an unpopular opinion - that librarians will be obsolete in the academic libraries of the future.  When Gavin dies, nobody seems too upset about it.

Charlie was seen having an argument with Gavin the day before he dies, and, as a result, makes the suspect list.  Now Charlie has to figure out who really killed Gavin...

My Thoughts: As I stated at the beginning of the post, I absolutely love the Cat in the Stacks Mystery series.

With most cozy mysteries, you hear about the murder towards the very beginning of the book.  In Twelve Angry Librarians, however, the murder occurs later on in the book.  I enjoyed reading the backstory quite a bit.  I felt this made the book unique.  In this book, we also get to "see" the murder - don't worry, it's nothing gruesome - and I enjoyed this as well.

I love that the Cat in the Stacks Mystery series is from a male's perspective - it makes the series a very unique one, indeed.  As always, Diesel is charming with his cat antics as well.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves cozy mysteries and cats!

I look forward to reading the next book in the series.

Mancat Monday

Hi everyone, it's mes, Carmine!

Last week, the Mom took the covers off our heated beds to wash.  The covers had to "air dry," so wes were without our heated beds for two whole days!  When the first bed was put back together, the Mom put it on the floor.  Hers hadn't put it in my spot or plugged it in yet.  

Mes came right over from the scratcher mes was sitting on and flopped down in it!  Mes sure did miss my bed!  

Since thens, mes has been spending lots of time in my (and in Lita's) bed.  

There's nothing like a nice warm bed......don't you agree?
