Taking Care of Mom

Mom's been sick for a few days, and I've been taking care of her. With Dad's help, of course. Mostly I've been hanging out with her wherever she is -- lying on the couch or in bed -- watching out for and fending off evil spirits. She's feeling a little better tonight, which is why I'm writing this post.

It was just Mom and me last weekend. She hadn't gotten sick yet, and we enjoyed our time together. Dad was away on a camping trip with friends. Truth is, I really missed him a lot and was so glad to see him again early Sunday afternoon.

Well, Mom says she's getting tired, so I'll sign off now.

Ciao meow!

Who'd a Thunk!

I'm an indoor cat, and indoor cats don't get fleas...right? WRONG!! Mom found two fleas on me yesterday, which explains why I've been itching and scratching so much lately. She hadn't been flea combing me regularly because we all thought it would be impossible for me to catch a flea or two without going outside. But there they were, those darn little buggers.

Dad thinks he likely brought them in the house on his work clothes, seeing that he works "in the bush" around the property here as Assistant Manager of our mobile home park.

Oh well, the fleas are gone now and Mom dosed me up with Advantage so I'm good for at least another month. That and my twice daily antihistamines and I'll be good as new in a day or two!

Hope the warm weather critters don't bother you guys. Have a good one.

Ciao meow!

Mom's Little Helper

My most favorite thing to get involved in is helping Mom change the sheets. I always try to get myself tucked inside so Mom won't be able to find me. But darn, she always does, and then she scoots me out so I don't get trapped under the covers.

I "met" my new neighbor -- that good lookin' orange tabby cat. He was outside again yesterday and we talked to each other through the office window. His name is Tigger, and he's supposed to be an inside cat, too. But he doesn't run away when he gets out. Guess I should find out his secret to staying around, although I'm not sure my folks will let me out again anyway, so it's probably a moot point!

Have a good week, catfans! Ciao meow!
