Mancat Monday

Yet another picture of me lying around the living room.  Mom took this picture weeks ago and kept it as a spare in case she didn't get a picture taken, but found she had time to blog.  See my baby sun puddle?  I got too warm in the big one, so I moved to the baby one.  My fur is completely grown out again.  Mom has been really bad about blogging again.  She still hasn't done my award that I got weeks ago.

Karen Jo:  My apologies.  I have been very busy.  I had a lot of work to do with year-end reports for an organization I belong to and now I have to write another report for the state convention coming up.  I still haven't gotten my new computer up and running and I think I will let it wait until I have written my report.  A friend on mine has been having a rough time and I have been spending quite a bit of time with her, helping her unwind after some very stressful days.  All I can promise is that I will blog when I can.  I should be able to do your award tomorrow.  I also have to do my income taxes very soon.

Sheesh!  I had a busy day today myself.  I got taken to the vet for my yearly wellness exam. The great news is that I am so healthy that everything shows up as normal.  The good news is that I have lost 0.6 pounds since the last time Mom weighed me last fall, before the weather got too cold to take me in for a weighing every month.  The bad news is that the vet says that the weight isn't coming off fast enough, so Mom is going to have to take a little bit of food away from me.  The really bad news is that I need to have my teeth cleaned.

Karen Jo:  I am so very pleased with your wellness exam results.  The only change I am going to make this month is to start measuring out your dry food.  We'll check your weight again next month when you go in to have your teeth cleaned.  If I am happy with your progress, I won't make any more changes.  I am waiting a month to have your teeth cleaned because I have so much going on right now.

I can wait; in fact, I can wait a really long time for that.  I have been feeling really good.  I am playing with my toys more and talking to the birds more and running up and down the hall more.  I think I can feel Spring in the air.

Karen Jo:  You are really good at detecting it then.  We had snow just Saturday.  It wasn't much, but a bitingly cold wind came with it. Today it was really nice.  Some people's bulbs are coming up and the crab apple trees are budding.  The forsythia is getting tiny buds, too.

Mom's war with the ravens has come to a stalemate.

Karen Jo:  I thought I had them outsmarted when I put a twist-tie on the suet feeder.  One of them looped the chain over the crossbar of the clothesline pole and got the twist-tie off.  This time I put one of those heavy duty twist-ties that comes on computer cables on the feeder and they haven't gotten it open again.  They do occasionally loop the chain over the crossbar so they can get at the suet more easily, but at least the starlings are getting a share now.  The flickers haven't shown up yet.

Herman it sounds like things are going well for you. I bet you'll be glad when your Mom is back to play with you all the time!

I'm glad you are feeling so good, Herman! I will keep my paws crossed for you and purr for you when you have your teeth cleaned - but at least that is not for a while.

Herman my friend, it is SO good to see you looking so well. Rumblemum thinks you're the perfect size and your vet is a crazy man...

Durn fevvers! They're as wily as the squirrels! MOL!

Nice to see you guys! Herman, we're glad you're so healthy, doing so well, this is absolutely fabulous. As for the dental--our Nicki has to go soon for (another) one, so he sympathizes. Truly hope yours doesn't cost the $800 Nicki's is expected to be. (Very pricey here in Canada to have pet dentals.)

BTW, we've changed blog URLs:

If you've got a 'baby sun puddle,' does that mean that they're multiplying? If so, yeah!!!

Good for you, Herman, even with the teeth cleaning! (Sorry--that's no fun.)

Our crows have a meeting in the park across the road every Sunday morning. It's pretty amazing to hear them all as they fly over. I know they'll be heading north soon enough.

Hooray Herman, I am so glad your wellness exam went so well!!!!

We're really happy to hear that you're doing so well, Herman!

I know a little about food measuring...since I no longer have the excuse of my medication making me overweight, my Mom has started watching what she gives me...it's awful!

Herman, that is pawsome news about your wellness exam! We're so glad!

Those pesky ravens sound pretty clever. We hope that the heavy duty twist tie keeps them at bay for a long, long time.

Hugs to you and your mom!
