Happy Weekend!

I hope you’re all having a good weekend so far. Today, it’s dark and a bit rainy here.  Mama still needs to go out and run errands.  She needs to replenish our Fancy Feast stash and get food for her and Papa. She also needs to do laundry and wash my blankie.
What are your plans today?  I’ll be snoozing and hanging out with Mama.  She has good books to read and an old movie to watch after her chores are done.

Tasty Tuna Tuesday

Hi friends. Here, I'm relaxing yesterday afternoon. Mama  made dinner and used two packets of tuna. She deliberately kept some back from both packets and put it into our Fancy Feast for dinner. Yummy!

Mama worked late last night and then we watched some TV together in bed.  Much, much later, I meow-howled the night away.

Happy Friday

We received a lot of nice comments about my loss of eyesight, which we appreciate.

My retinas detached due to high blood pressure and it's thought that the high blood pressure came from the hyperthyroidism.  The great news is that I've adapted really well. In some cases, when blindness is due to retinal detachment, the retinas can reattach.  The main symptom that Mama noticed on me was that my eyes were fully dilated all the time, which means they were trying to get light.

I'm 16 and just went blind early this year so that just goes to show that blind kitties of all ages make wonderful pets. This is a wonderful place that helps homeless blind kitties: Blind Cat Rescue  

I jump up on the bed, know where the patio is, where my own bed is, where my ham-mick is and where my food and water are. I use my whiskers a lot when walking around but I still bump into walls often.  I love hearing Mama and Papa talk and when I hear one of them come in the bedroom, I always get up and lie beside them.   Sometimes, Mama sings to me, which I love.  The downside to this, according to Mama, is I meow very loudly several times throughout the night, every night, and Mama hasn't had a good night's sleep in a long time.

Now for some fun. Humans, celebrate Friday by giving your kitties, doggies or other furry pals a treat or two (or ten). Also, Katie Isabella is having a house trashing pawty this weekend while her mom is away. Be sure to check her blog for details. Katie said I can eat in her mom's bed! I can't wait!

I know it’s been a very long time since I’ve done a post. We think of you, our friends, often and have missed you a lot.

Here’s what’s been going on with me the last few months:
I went blind earlier this year due to off-the-charts high blood pressure.  I’m now doing well because I take my blood pressure pills every day.  I also take hyper-thyroid pills twice a day and prednisone for bloody poops.  In May, I moved to Texas with Mama, Papa, Simba and Annie.  Mama was really worried how I would adapt to a new home not being able to see and if I would be able to find the litter box. She was so proud of me because I walked from the bedroom to the litter box immediately with no problems and didn’t need any help (thanks to Simba’s stinky poops, I just smelled the way).  I still love to eat and love attention.  I purr with the best of them. Now that the weather is getting cooler, I walk around on the patio and love to sit in front of the open window and smell the fresh air.

Mama wanted me to add that Annie has been doing great. She is (finally) completely comfortable with Simba and me and feels secure with all of us.  She hasn’t had any recurrence of bladder stones, even with the stress of the move.  Simba is doing really well too. He still gets fluids but only needs them about once a week.

I’m looking forward to visiting everyone and finding out the latest news with y’all.
