Caturday Art

I are joining in Athena's Caturday Art blog hop.  I wish I could says "Happy Caturday" like I usually does, but it are not a happy Caturday since we is all still missin Miss Jezebel.  She were my bestest friend and let me cuddle her even though I are just a lil kitten dude.  I tries to cuddle Maurice, but he wants to bite my head instead, so I has to resort to cuddlin wif dogs or peoples.  I miss my buddy.


Hope y'all have a good Caturday.  Fanks so much for all da nice comments, prayers, and good thoughts comin' our way.  Me and momma was shocked at how many comments we got since we is pretty new to dis bloggin' thing.  We appreciates every single one of dem and your friendships so much.

A Note From Jezebel's Typist


Jezebel passed away in my arms this morning.  As some of you may know, I've had Jezebel since I was 6 years old - she has been a major part of my life.  I was the one who picked her out - I couldn't resist the crazy kitten that was literally climbing the cage to get me to notice her.  

I slept on the floor in the living room so I could be near her - I didn't want to have her up in a bed in case she tried to go anywhere and fell.  I kept waking up every couple of hours to check on her.  She was so still and she felt cool, but she was still breathing. When I woke up for good around 7, I wrapped her up in my arms and held her for hours.  

She seemed like she was beginning to struggle, so my mom and I decided we were going to take her to the vet.  But she passed away in my arms before we had the chance.  We buried her in the backyard, near where we buried Hank's ashes and Charlie last summer.

I feel like my heart is breaking.  Thank you for your friendship.

Tired


I'm tired.  The human slaves have been really good - they even got me my favoritest food of all - cheesy Fancy Feast.  But I just took the tiniest nibble - I didn't really want to eat it.  But at least they knew to get it for me.  I didn't want to drink any water either - I just wanted to lie down and go to sleep.

I'm really tired.  But at least I have a nice warm lap to lie on right now.  Thank you for all the purrs and prayers.  They're appreciated.

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday


Still not feeling very good.  But I am enjoying sleeping in my humans' laps.

Not Doing Too Good


Well pals, I'm not doing too good.  I went to the vet today because I've been having diarrhea for a while.  I got some drops to help firm that stuff up.  The vet said he heard an extra heartbeat.

My feet have also swollen up, which is making it hard for me to walk.  The humans could run a whole lot of tests and all that, but I'm almost 21 years old and they don't want to make me go through all that.  I did some get some fluids, along with some vitamins and steroids to help me feel a little better.

But I've had a real hard time walking this afternoon and tonight.  I've been dragging my back legs and mainly I'm just sitting in the typist's lap.  She seems sad, I don't know what her problem is - her legs are working just fine.

I also got to go out in the backyard.  I haven't been out in the backyard for years!  A long long time ago, I used to get to go outside and kill birds and lizards and all kinds of things.  When I was about 18, my momma thought she could let me out some because I wouldn't to do anything, like climb the fence.  Well, I proved her wrong and was on that fence in no time.  Not today.  I just played with the plants a little and sat by the pool.  Well, it figures that the slaves would finally let me back outside when I am too decrepit to do much of anything.  It was nice to be back outside though.

I'm back to sleeping on the typist's lap again.  I did eat a little bit of food tonight, which made the humans happy.  They're really easily pleased I guess.

Gettin' Old Ain't For Wimps


Hey everybody, Jezebel here.  This getting old stuff is not for wimps!  I've not been feeling too good the last week or so, I've been having tummy troubles and my arthritis has been acting up.  I seem to be doing better today, so hopefully that stuff is done with and I can go back to bossing those silly boycats around.

At least my sunspots are back today for napping.  And the human slaves have been pretty good about feeding me whenever I want.  I just give them my stare of death and stand by my food bowl, I can't really meow like I used to.  I still can meow some, but I used to be a fantastic meower - I was so loud.  Now it is so quiet.  But there's one advantage of having Travis and Maurice around - the slaves are constantly feeding cats!  MOL!

Well, I'm off to go take a nap.  Have a pawsome Monday.

Happy Spring!


Happy Spring everyone!  I love spring - more sunspots are around, the birdies are back to provide us entertainment (even if I'm not allowed outside to decapitate them anymore), and best of all, my birthday is coming up!  What's not to love??  

Last night, I crawled right up on Whitley and went to sleep.  Having a living, breathing, heated mattress to nap on is nice.  I know some kitties don't like dogs and visa versa, but if you properly train your puppies from when they're little, they can be a nice heating pad.  I sleep on Finley the same way, and both those dogs are perfectly polite, as they should be since they're being graced with my presence.

Hope everyone has a happy first day of Spring - I'm getting ready to settle in for a nice springtime nap!

Sun Puddles Have Returned!

Our sun puddles have returned!  And so has our Spring weather - it was a toasty 81 degrees here - the perfect spring day to spend napping in the sunshine.  Which was exactly what I did.


Hope y'all got some sun puddles to enjoy too!

I've been having a good time lately MOLing at those crazy boycats.  They are good entertainment, the way they zip and zoom all over the house.  The funniest thing is when they try to land somewhere thinking they will fit, but they don't.  MOL MOL!

Hope y'all are all having some sunny warm weather too.

Travis and da Disappearin Dog Foodz


Dis are da face of innoscents right?  Da face of orange fluffy innoscents dat would never never rip open an unopened bag of doggie kibble just to get some?

Well, I'm not dat innoscent.  I is dat hungry.  And dat doggie kibble smelled really yummy.  Momma were not to happy when she caught me in da cabinet rip pin open da bag of doggie kibble.  But it smelled so good!!  I tore dat plastic bag right open and was join to town.

Momma don't like me havin no doggie kibble because a couple times I has gotten it and overindulged and gotten sick from eatin too much of it.  So it are usually locked up away from me, but I managed to open da cabinet to get at it.

Maybe if my momma didn't starve me so much I wouldn't be so hungry.  HINT HINT momma - I only got 3 breakfastses and 2 lunches today - I think dat qualifies as kitten aboose!!!

-Travis

P.S.  I'm gonna find a way to get back into dat dog food - just wait!!

A Nice Nap


Like most kitties, I spend a good part of the day napping.  I spend even more time napping now that I'm 20.  My favorite place to nap is on fleece blankets - we've got them throughout the house.  Isn't it nice that my slaves realized I needed a good nap spot in almost every room of the house?  They're really pretty good, as far as slaves go.  I saw that that movie, 12 Years A Slave won the Academy Award.  I told my humans they should make a movie about me since they have almost 21 years as my slave.  I think I deserve one of those nice lil trophies, but since I don't see any scripts or movie cameras yet, I doubt they lessoned.  Another wasted opportunity. 

Anyways, my sun was back today, so I had a nice sun puddle to nap in.  Sun puddles really are the best!  

Time to go remind the slaves I need dinner . . .

Crazy Weather Means Crazy Cat


I know I don't looks it here, but I has been being ca-razy dis pastest couple a days.  Well, da weather here have been crazy too.  It went from being 82 on Caturmaday to being 12 as a low last night.  Dat are one crazy drop and it inspired me to run all over da house like a nutso.  I were just zippin round, bouncin off walls, you name it.

Yestermaday was Maurice's birfday and it were a fun day.  He got new toys, which means I got new toys to steal!  I been tryin to steal em, but momma keeps on givin em back to him.  I don't know why.  I guess I'll have to resort back to stealin nail files and other borin stuffs like dat.

But da good news - we's had bacon for da pastest 2 days and I got some bacon bits!  I LUV bacon, it are just da bestest thing in da whole wide worlds.  YUMMMM.  You know what else are good?  Butter!  I got caught lickin da butter stick dat had been out because da humans was butterin dere biskits.  They acted all grossed out and started laffin.  I don't know why they's laffin.  Butter are delishus!

So I just heard Miss Ally, Maurice's momma, openin up da fridge - hopefully it means food time for me!  I gotta go check it out!
