Calling Dr. Kevin. . .

Tigger has been doing real good. Last night, though, when Mommy came home from work he was hiding under the bed. He didn’t come out to eat when Mommy brought our food. He even hissed at me when I went under the bed to check on him for Mommy.

This set off Mommy’s “sick cat radar.” She didn’t bother Tigger though and let him stay under the bed. There’s not a lot you can do at midnight anyway.

Early this morning, Tigger got on the bed and cried. He woke Mommy up to let her know he feels bad.

So Mommy is up early and we kitties are all up. Tigger is on the bed, feeling bad. Mommy is helping me write the blog. We are waiting for Dr. Kevin’s office to open so we can call him. . . again.

It means Tigger will probably get another antibiotic shot sometime today.

Poor Tigger. He is fat and his bladder leaks which keeps his behind moist. He can’t reach it to wash himself really good because he is a fat-cat. Even with Mommy helping with baby wipes and wash cloths, he gets skin infections or worse, bladder infections.

Mommy says at least Tigger isn’t sick and having to go see Dr. Kevin every week or two like last year. He actually goes 6 to 8 weeks between trips now. That lets Mommy build up the vet-bill fund a little between visits.

We have all kept Mommy busy taking us to see Dr. Kevin over the last year. Tigger, me (Lisa), Jay Jay, and most recently, Spicy.

And just to  make it interesting:

Jay Jay Dog was sick yesterday. He had eaten something that upset his tummy. Mommy doctored him herself and he felt better last night. She doesn’t like to take him to see Dr. Kevin, because Jay turns into a Tasmanian Devil when he goes to the vet (any vet). It’s a Chihuahua thing.


I’ll post a Tigger Update when we find out something. In the meantime, Mommy says she wants another cup of coffee. . ., no she NEEDS another cup of coffee. I have to go for now.

Man Cat Monday – Shades of Black

Cannon 017

Tennyson and Thomas T. braving the heat this past weekend. Being Senior Man Cats they have to get away from the hustle and bustle of the cottage ever so often.

Man Cat Monday ~ Tennyson (Ten)


Aren’t I a cute man cat? I really enjoy going outside and helping Mommy water the flowers.

Cannon 007

I look darker inside. The sun really picks up the light fur. I love living here. I can go out or stay in. Mommy and Daddy work overtime to spoil me.

Sugar and Spice

Everything about these two is nice.

Sugar and Spice

Sugar (the silver tabby) has a few more doses of antibiotic to take. All indications are that she is over the mystery illness that plagued both kittens last week. Spice (Spicy) is back to her normal, mischievous self.

Once she began to feel better, Spicy returned to using me as her personal tree whenever I’m working in the kitchen. Such interesting things go on up on the kitchen counter. She just has to get to a good vantage point, usually from my shoulder. Ever tried to wash dishes with a kitten on your shoulder? It gets interesting!

It is difficult to take pictures unless they are asleep. In the one above, Spicy had worn herself out with her feather toy. It matches her coloring so well I didn’t realize it was there until after I took the picture.

Sugar is curious about everything. . .

Just what is in this jug? It has a kitty picture on it.

Of course, Sugar plays until exhausted too. She took one of her naps today with her adopted Uncle Mikey.

Mikey was one of the first cats to accept the little girls and is their Lord Protector. They know they are safe with Uncle Mikey on the job.

Precious looks after them as well. Having been a mother cat, her instincts kicked in soon after their arrival. Of course, she is older than when she raised “The Wrecking Crew” (Amy, Amber, Tigger, Mikey, and Maggie Mae). Looking after Sugar and Spicy wears her out. . .

We had a good weekend here at the Cat House; no sick cats, no major disruptions, and lots of fun with the kittens. Finally!

I wonder how long it will last?

Kitten Update

Sugar and Spicy are improving daily. They are chasing each other through the cottage at breakneck speed. Their toys are getting a workout. Even the older cats are getting excited and joining in with some playing of their own.

I don’t have any new pictures to post today. Look for updated kitten pictures and maybe a video clip over the weekend. I’m beginning to think video is the way to go; they move so fast.

My thanks to Dr. Kevin and his staff for helping get them past the mystery infection and back to normal. Thanks also to our readers and Face Book Fans for their prayers for the kitties.
