Feather Guy

I love feathers, they're my fave thing to play with.

Occasionally mom goes down to Miranda's Rescue and picks up parrot feathers from behind the big bird cages.  Then she doles them out to me to play with.

I love my mom!

True Confessions

Just hanging out, waiting for the sun to come out today. 

I have a confession ~ see where my tail meets my bum?  I chew the hair off my tail there.  This is the latest (although I've been doing it for months now) iteration of my lifelong allergic dermatitis.  I used to bite my skin in various places on my belly, breaking the skin and causing hot spots.  At least I don't do that any more.  Now I just defoliate certain areas of my more-private parts. 

Mom gave me two different homeopathic remedies, but neither worked to stop me.  Now I've been on Omega Fish Oil for a couple months, which is good for my general health anyway, but I still haven't stopped my hair-chewing habit.

Mom used to be pretty worried about me doing this, and she still chides me sometimes.  But I'm in fine health overall.  So, it's just what it is.  Maybe I'll grow out of it.  I've still got a few years left in me.

Aging Kitty

This is me on mom's office chair.  Duh, it just recently dawned on me that not only can I sit in her chair when she's not sitting in it, but that I can use the chair to get up onto the table instead of having to jump straight up to the table.  An aging cat needs to figure out ways to make life easier on himself.

So, today is my 14th birthday.  That's 98 human years.  This last 13 cat years, since mom rescued me, have sure gone quickly.  I'll most likely be gone before another five years has elapsed.  So all of our time together, especially now and in the coming days/years, is and will be really special.  And kind of bittersweet at the same time.

Life goes by quickly.  Make sure you're happy and contented, and that you enjoy every day to the fullest.  Even if that means just hanging out around the house with your beloved human.

It's All Inside

Prime view of the interior of my mouth...just in case you've been wondering what's in there.  I have a multi-colored palate, a pink tongue, and good teeth.

I almost forgot...

...to post this week.  But mom turned on her computer this morning just so I could post.  I'm committed to posting regularly now, and I hate to go back on my word.  My word is all I've got.
