Hi Friends,
We've missed all of you. The last few weeks have been busier than usual. Mama's work is having a big shake-up, Mama and Papa are making plans to move and I haven't been feeling well.

Mama took me to the vet.  I have very high blood pressure, elevated thyroid and my retinas are detaching.  The latter is apparently due to the high blood pressure.  I don't see very well and my eyes are dilated a lot.  However, Mama said the vet said that the vision can come back once the BP is under control. I've been on both BP and thyroid pills, but I don't mind because I get a pill pocket twice a day.
I go back to the vet on Wednesday for a two-week check up.  They'll re-test my blood for the thyroid and take my blood pressure.  I've been feeling a bit better so we're hopeful for a good report.

On another note, our lovely friends at Whisppy have given us an award! Here are the rules:
  • Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.
  • Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy — if you can figure out how to do it.
  • Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly.
  • Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award.
  • Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.

Well, here goes the seven things about us. (You should go read about all the friends at Whisppy. We loved what they had to say.)
  1. If Annie is excited about something, her meow sounds like a harmonica. If she wants something, her meow sounds like she's pushing out air. 
  2. It's been in the 70's here in Southern California. We're enjoying the sunshine coming through the windows and on our patio.
  3.  Annie likes to chase Simba.
  4. Annie, the pickiest cat who's ever lived here and only likes two flavors of Fancy Feast, has a taste for smoked Muenster cheese and will steal it off your plate.  (She also likes coffee cake.)
  5. Simba likes to be rocked in the Lazy Boy chair while he's doing the monorail on the top of it.  The faster the chair moves, the better.  He's a closet thrill seeker.
  6. Lucy was named after the lead character in the TV show I Love Lucy. When Mama saw her in the shelter 15 and a half years ago, she was sleeping in her litter box and purred nonstop when Mama took her out the cage.
  7. Lucy, Simba and Annie live together harmoniously, something Mama despaired of several months ago when Annie came to live here.
We're going rogue and instead of nominating bloggers to win this award, we encourage you all to pick it up and share about yourselves.


  1. I hope Lucy feels better very soon! Keep us posted.

    Loved reading about you all. My Annie likes the cheese off a pizza. Even if it has a little red sauce attached. hehe

    Have a great week ahead!
