Sorry for having been so quiet lately. Mommy has been to and fro the vet since Sunday. Thankfully, NONE of us were dragged along. We'll let Mommy explain.
Mommy here :
Long story short, I have been spending a lot of time with my friend at the vet, keeping vigil over her cat who was in very bad condition with suspected poisoning since Saturday. Sadly, despite the best efforts, the cat passed away today, Tuesday evening. We were with him right till the end.
Till today, we have no idea what poison he could have ingested and how. He was a stray cat that appeared in my friend's life about a month ago. She had him neutered and was about to get him vaccinated before bringing him indoors to join her cat family. Then this happened.
We do not know if he was intentionally poisoned by people who are not tolerant of animals but I have some things to say to people who think that poison is the way to "get rid of the problem". Poisoning is a terrible way to end a life. Especially a life of an innocent animal who does not know he's not allowed on your car or that the grass in your garden is different from the grass outside where he does his potty or for just being born a rat. There are humane ways of keeping them away instead of resorting to poison or pesticides or weedkillers. The suffering the animal has to go through after being poisoned is just plain awful. And death is not instant. It takes days....days of pain and endless suffering. Please. No animal INTENTIONALLY does things to annoy humans. Just shoo them away if they do things you do not like. As for rats, well, keep drains clean and garbage in properly closed cans. I could go on and on but I shall stop here.
Run free, Bosco, and fear no pain or suffering because the Rainbow Bridge has none of that.
We will be back to regular posting and commenting tomorrow, Wednesday. Thank you for letting me vent.

|Meow-Me : *pat pat pat*|
|Tutu : GOTCHA!|
Meow-Me : For Cod's sake. That's not how you play with Da Bird!
|Tutu : I'll play anyway I like!|
Meow-Me : Jeez
|Meow-Me : *tsk tsk tsk*|
Okay Meow-Me, I'll remove Tutu. Now you show us the "right" way to play with Da Bird
|Meow-Me : First you stalk it.....|
|....then calculate the distance, making sure you keep your ears flat so Da Bird can't see them....|
|...calm the heart, take a deep breath......|
|.......JUMP and GRAB!|

|Tutu : Leaping into the weekend!|
|Tutu : Okay, okay. So it's a basin and not the weekend. But don't you just love my form?|
|Tutu : Grandma says I have a grumpy look. Well, YOU would be grumpy too if you had to wait 862 hours for ONE little treat|

Coco : Eeeeek!
|Tutu : Wanna see who is more graceful jumping into the box?|
Boomer : Sure! Babies first
|Tutu : *runs real fast.......JUMP!*|
|Boomer : You call that graceful with your back legs splayed?|
Look at me! Legs together and JUMP!

|Boomer : Something doesn't feel quite right|
|Boomer : Get the *hint*, Meow-Me?|
|Boomer : Maybe I could try to sleep and pretend she isn't there but MY COD, she's heavy!|
|I think Boomer was lounging in the hammock when Meow-Me decided to crash in (see how Meow-Me is lying on top of Boomer?). Boomer doesn't share his hammock except with his girl, Katie Isabella|
|Meow-Me : Boomer....I think it's time you leave|
|*whappity whappity WHAP*|
|*holds on to side of hammock*|
Boomer : It's going to take a lot more than some whappity's to get me out!
|I bought some cat grass seed recently and was told they are catnip. I've managed to get them to grow and was just wondering if they are really catnip? Can someone please let me know if it's indeed catnip? Thanks!|

|Felix : Can you please stop shoving that flashy box in my face?|
|Felix : I've the best seat in the catio!|
|Felix : See what I mean?|
Felix - it really is the best seat in the catio. It's high enough for me to see everything and if something scary comes along, I just have to crouch down and no one can see me. Heh heh.
Thank you, Grandma and Grandpa! :)
We received the ONE SWEET BLOG award from our friends, Mollie and Alfie. It was created by Alfie himself. :) If you don't know them yet, you have to visit! They are really FUN!
The criteria is to tell everyone who gave them the award and to pass it on to 5 friends! We've already told you who passed the award to us so now we have to crack our heads to choose 5 friends. It was REALLY tough but here goes :

|Guess what this is for?|
|Whisky : Mommy....you know I need to taste test that, right?|
|Whisky : Oooff. Where did you come from. Go away!|
Ling : I have to taste test for the kitties!
|Into the dehydrator they go...|
|Tutu : I've appointed ME to stand guard|
But honey, you sure you want to? This is going to take a couple of hours
|Many MANY hours later........|
Tutu : I'm bored, I'm tired and my tummy is rumbling. Is it ready yet?
|Tutu : GO AWAY! I was here first|
Cosmo : *brat*
|Cosmo : I'll do the sniff test...Smells like it's READY!|
|Cosmo : ....and now the taste test|
|C O S M O !!!!!!|
|Okay kids...the jerky is ready. Who wants a piece?|
|Tutu had to be scruffed or she would have taken everyone's piece|
|Boomer takes his piece politely while Meow-Me waits her turn|
|Daddy : You're a little tubby so you're going to have to dance for your piece, Meow-Me|
|Meow-Me : Why would you even think I'm tubby?|
|Meow-Me : Can't you see how shapely I am?|
|Home made chicken jerky!|
|It was also time to make a fresh batch of food for the kids|
|Ling : *nom nom nom*|
|Whisky : I've finished mine. Can I please have some more?|
Recently, there have been many incidents concerning Jerky made in China. Those made in the USA were hard to come by so I decided to make my very own. It makes me feel much better knowing exactly what goes into the food the furries consume. :) And having the furries LOVE what I make is icing on the cake.
