Happy New Year


This is my "Don't bug me; I'm chillaxing" pose. I did an even better one on my platform, but the light from the window was too bright, even taking the picture from the side, and it came out too dark to really see me. My Mom wanted to put a New Year's hat on me, but she couldn't find one. Hahaha! I win. I hope that everyone has a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year. This year is certainly going to be better for me than last year. I have a great forever home with a Mom who is spoiling me rotten. I love it. I even got New Year's presents. My Mom went to physical therapy today and dropped by the pet supply store on the way home. She brought me a drinking fountain and an nip banana. I have ignored the nip banana so far, but I love the drinking fountain. I watched Mom's every move as she put it together and even drank out of it as soon as she put the water in. It wasn't even running yet. Once it got running, I checked it out, but didn't drink out of it. About an hour later, Mom saw me taking a long drink and wanted to take a picture, but I was done by the time she got the camera. Unfortunately, she also got me a PTU. I ran as soon as I saw it. Mom put it down on the floor and opened the door and put a towel inside and even put Temptations inside. I wasn't falling for that. I wouldn't go anywhere near it until she opened both doors and I knew that I could escape before she could shut both of them. Then I stretched inside and ate the Temptations, leaving my rear end sticking outside, so she couldn't close the door on me. I know what PTUs are for and I don't want to go. Although, I must admit that the last time I was in one, I ended up here and that was a good thing.

Play time is back! My Mom can get down on the floor and play with me again. We had lots of fun this morning. We played until I lost interest instead of just playing until she got achy. We played three different times today. I also got lots of cuddle time, because she had to rest a bit this afternoon. I have decided that Da Bird is fun to catch and put the bitey on. I don't play with it like most cats. I like to play lying down. I lie down on my back and Mom swings the feathers right over my head. I bat them, catch them and bite them. If she swings the feathers high, I just lie there and watch them. I played with my wand mousie, too. I like it when Mom moves the mousie along the floor until it gets close to me. Then I grab it and bite it.

Happy New Year everyone!

Happy New Year Herman! You know what? We got a new PTU too...cause mom said Nigel was too big for the ones we already have. It's supersized!!!

Grrreta said...

We're glad your mom is feeling well enough to play more. It's great that you like your new water fountain. You are much nicer than we were by trying it out the same day you got it. We were too scared of ours to go near it for several days after we got it.

We wish you a very happy New Year!

Regarding the fatty acids, whatever kind you get will usually have the dosing instructions on the bottle/package. We just use a little squirt. I really like The Missing Link feline formula. It's in a powder form, but Harley recently had another flare-up of his EGC and I think it could possibly be due to the yeast in the supplement. You can get The Missing Link online at lots of places. Just be sure to refrigerate after opening.

We are glad Mom is able to play with you again. We don't like the PTU either.
