Mancat Monday

This is what Mom sees when she wakes up in the morning, at least if she wakes up before the alarm goes off.  She got up and I stayed put, so she got the camera, got back in bed and took the picture.  We both think it's a great way to wake up. Some of you want to know about the kitty torture bag.  I'll let Mom explain.

Karen Jo:  Because of the way Herman fought me when I tried to clean off his klingons before, I bought a grooming bag, also called a claw control bag, which restrains a cat like wrapping him up in a towel, leaving the head free, but has zippers to allow access to the paws one at a time for claw trimming, or to the rear for cleaning. We are both glad that I didn't have to use it.  Since Herman hates to be restrained, I am not sure I could have zipped him up in it without help.

Mom got up a little early today to make chicken casserole.  True to her word, she let me have a couple of bites of chicken before she put it in the casserole.  When it was ready and she started to eat it, I sat next to her and stared at her until she offered me a bite of chicken.  I liked it and meowed for more.  Next she gave me a tiny bite of egg noodle and I liked that.  I kept helping her eat it for quite a few bites.

Karen Jo:  I picked this recipe because it was easy and it didn't have anything in it that would be bad for kitties.  I remembered that you like pasta with cream sauce and that's why I offered you the bites of noodle.  I will share with you again tomorrow, if you don't do your "I don't like leftovers" act again.

I really like chicken, but when are we having steak again?

Karen Jo:  On Thursday, after your wellness exam.  I expect that we will have cause to celebrate.  You seem very healthy to me and I expect the vet to be amazed at how well you are doing.

I started getting my Interferon again today.  I wasn't expecting it and Mom had to come find me in the living room to give it to me.  I bet I am waiting at the refrigerator for it tomorrow.

Karen Jo:  I bet you will be asking for it tomorrow, too.  Unfortunately, the first of the month is the day after tomorrow and that means you get your Metronitazole again.

Oh, man, I hate that stuff.  You better bring out the really good treats if you are going to stuff that down my throat.

Karen Jo:  I have a good supply of Temptations, nip treats and Greenies for you.

I guess that will do.  I got lots of Temptations tonight.

Karen Jo:  I let you have as many as you wanted because you were so good about eating your dinner tonight.  You ate up all your Stinky Goodness and some of your Medley.  You also ate about half a bowl of your Purina One while I was at work.  There is certainly nothing wrong with your appetite.

When will you know more about the leukemia kitty?

Karen Jo:  I don't know.  I will wait several days for the shelter lady to contact me.  If she doesn't by this weekend, I will e-mail her for more information.  I am not getting my hopes up too high.  I will work on getting your old safe room ready, just in case.

Herman, your human is always cooking something good! All my human ever seems to do is toss Lean Cuisines into the microwave! If I am lucky, she brings home a roasted chicken. Can I come over and have dinner at your place sometime?

Marg said...

We are with Sparkle, we might have to teleport over there for some of that good food. We don't ever get noodles with cream sauce. What a good home you have Herman.

We are happy Herman is doing so well and hope there is good news about the leukemia kitty.

We hope you get to hear soon about that lady kitty Herman - it would be lovely for you to have company while your mom is at work.
Can we come over for dinner one day Herman cos your dinners always sound better ours (don't tell our mum we said that).
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Herman, our mom is like Sparkle's mom--doesn't cook! So we think you're lucky to have one that does, and shares with you too.

We'll look forward to an update re: the kitty!
