Vet Visit, Going Away, etc.

On Friday, Pierrot and I went to the vet for our annual exams. The lady was proud of how well we did. It was very stressful, though. We will be boarding here at the vet and that's the reason for the exams. They're required. The lady should have taken a picture of the boarding area. It's actually quite nice and for kitties only.

In about a week, the lady and big guy are leaving for four days in Miami. It's an award trip from the lady's work. There will be 600 other employees (1-2% of the company won this annual award) with their guests there as well. The lady doesn't want to be ungrateful--she's very grateful for the recognition--but would actually prefer not to go. She doesn't want to leave us and has some anxiety about all the things planned and forced when on the trip. If it were just a trip for her and the big guy, she would be much more relaxed about it. Enough about her.

Pierrot and I are healthy. The lady will get a call on Monday on urine and poo results. I'm starting a new medication for my back legs. We haven't talked about it here, but I've had an issue with my back legs for at least a year. It got very bad at one time. The lady stopped feeding me food with fish and it improved but it's not perfect. My back legs are very stiff and give out for seemingly no reason one to multiple times a day. I don't seem to be in pain and I even run around when playing. The vet admits it's a mystery on what's causing this. One theory is that because I'm declawed, I walk differently. (Interestingly, she's not convinced that stopping the fish is the reason for the improvement.)  Another theory is that it's arthritis. We will have an x-ray done if I worsen or if the medication doesn't work. The lady isn't completely sure if medication is the right idea long term since I don't seem to be in pain.  I have been getting cosequin for a few months and that also seems to lessen the number of times my back legs give out.

If you've read this far, thank you. We know this is much wordier than we ever post. We sure are revealing today.

Friendly Fill-Ins

Hello! Today, the lady took the day off from work to get some things done. Fortunately, that gives her time to participate in Friendly Fill-Ins too. I helped by doing numbers one and two.

1. October is the perfect time to bring out the blankets and watch the leaves fall.

2. Halloween is fine as long as no kids knock on my door. I used to think trick-or-treating meant they come to bring me cat treats. Turns out I was tricked!

3. Every October, I enjoy the fall season. There's a special feeling in the air. I love the colors of the leaves.

4. My experience with the supernatural world has to do with my Christian faith.

Thank you to our lovely hosts, 15andmeowing and McGuffy's Reader!

My Week - 9/25

Here's my journal for the week:
  • Since the weather has been cooler, I've been enjoying looking out the window instead of spending much time on the balcony. 
  • We received our Chewy delivery and Pierrot is enjoying the packing paper just like Laila.
  • I'm happy about all the food in the Chewy delivery!
  • The lady found the remnants of the moth under a pad we keep on the floor next to the window.
  • I sleep every night in the bed with the lady. I have a routine. She shuts off the light and I have a snack. I then maybe have a drink of water or just hang out for a bit. Then, I meow for her to put me on the bed. The bed is super low and I jump on it during the day, but at night I insist on being put on the bed. I meow until she gets up and lifts me to the bed. This is the way I roll.
Yo, homies!

Easy Sunday

I know I'm on the bed a lot in my pictures, but it's a place where I'll cooperate, somewhat, with having my picture taken. Whenever the lady or big guy go in the bedroom, I follow them in there and jump on the bed because I know I'll get petting and attention. I love it.

This was an uneventful week. I was miffed at the lady for missing Meow Like a Pirate Day. We've been posting on that day ever since I came to live here. She should have put a reminder in her calendar. I'm a kitty. I can't be relied upon to keep her on task except for my meals.

I wonder if I could ship Pierrot somewhere...

Easy Sunday

I want to tell you about the fun I had yesterday. A moth was in the house. I ruthlessly stalked it over the course of several hours. The lady is always astonished by my murdering-for-sport pursuits. She doesn't understand how I can normally be so sweet and gentle and yet so merciless when it comes to bugs (and one hapless lizard in Texas).  It was the highlight of my week!

The highlight of Pierrot's week was finding another comfortable pillow. Remotes, laptop batteries, speakers all make the best pillows according to Pierrot.

Praying for FL

Hello, friends. Florida is very much on our minds and hearts. We are praying. We really want people and animals to be safe.

I'm watching the big guy do some chores. 

The big guy needed a place for his lens cap and Pierrot was happy to help.

We are laboring hard at hardly laboring.

Happy Labor Day to our friends in the U. S. and Canada. Otherwise, happy Monday!
