Nursing duty is not easy

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

I told you that Mom L has talking walking new-moan-yah, right?

Well that means I have become her Primary Caretaker of course, so I must spend most of my day and night with her in case she wants something. But I do have to call in the back-up nursing staff when I need a litter box break or a snack or just to stretch my legs.

But I gotta tell you, my back up nursing staff needs to get some refresher lessons on proper Mom L care taking. Why just look at how KK decided to pull her first shift!

Napping while on nurse duty!!

I just could not believe my eyes when I came back to find her snoozing away in a sun puddle in the cat tower that overlooks our bed where Mom L is recovering. And believe you me KK was sound asleep!

ZZZZZZZZZZZ

Well I sorted her out straight away and next shift she pulled she did so properly.

Nice tight snuggle next to Mom L

She faced Mom L and was snuggled as tightly as she could get to her leg so KK would know the instant Mom L needed anything.

As for TKS, she has has many years under my paw for nurse training and she has been pulling her shifts in a pretty responsible manner.

Good form, tight snuggle

Here she is snuggled tight against Mom L, but unfortunately she had her back to Mom L so’s no way would she wakey up if she couldn’t feel Mom L move. I almost dinged TKS for not facing Mom L like I trained her, but then I moved around to check out just how asleep TKS was. I was gonna give her a fright for not facing Mom L.

Never sleep on nurse duty

But I was caught by TKS who was in no way napping on her nurse shift! She was keeping a close watch for any movement from Mom L.

So as you can see, it isn’t easy being on round the clock nurse duty. I mostly pull the all nighter’s and stick with Mom L from dark until morning. But it sure does help having back up nursing staff. I just need to get KK back into some more training to make sure she stays consistent.

How do you handle your nursing duties when you are called upon?

Monday Meowsie News

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Not a ton of stuff going on in my castle this past week EXCEPT for the new news Mom L posted on her Facebook page. Now the photo was taken in the darkest hour of the early morning so you only get a backside view, but from this you can verify just who this kitty is.

Yes!! Katie finally moved over to Mom L’s side of the bed one night this week. She is becoming an “equal opportunity bed warmer” for both Mom L and Dad P.

As for what’s up with me this week, I am starting to take back my place on my our couch at night with Mom L. As you may recall, KK has been trying to steal borrow this prize location. You’d think Mom L could’a caught me in a more favorable pose though, na’ mean??

What? I was just making sure my tail is still attached!

If you missed my Friday Memes, they you are gonna appreciate me sharing this photo with you. Mom L volunteered her time one afternoon at a “Kitchen Clinic” with Community Concern For Cats, CC4C, and was sure she saw a bunch of white ferrets show up!! She shook her head and looked outside again and this is what she saw.

Yoo hoo?? Anybody out there????

These six kittens, four all white, one white with black accessories and one with a dab of light gray paint on top of his head, are one of THREE litters of white kittens all from the same dad!! Three different tabby moms and dad is also a tabby?? Go figure!!

Mom L met another adult cat at this clinic. He just showed up in his foster Mom’s backyard a couple of days before the clinic. Not neutered and begging to be held constantly. He had some real vocal cords this one did!! MOL!!  Miss Gemma who runs this clinic would have to pick him up and carry him around the room to collect worming meds and claw whackers for his care.

Isn’t he a handsome Bengal boy?

Let me hear in comments what’cha think is the most inner’esting Meowsie News this week!

Monday Meowsie Variety Photos

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

I thought you might all enjoy seeing some photos of the kitties I featured in my last Monday Meowsie News post. And I am also tossing in some of me, TKS and KK.

This is an “almost” wordless Monday!!

First up is ME, or course! I so luvluvluv having my head brushed, don’t you?

Ahhh…just the purrfect spot

And Kit Katie aka KK, has so many new photos, I had to kind’a pick just a few.

Tks decided to join me and KK in a group photo opportunity.

All three of us taking our afternoon naps

Now here’s the latest and greatest news!! No photo, but verified by Mom L’s new eyesight after her cat-er-act surgeries. Mom L got up to visit the human’s litter box a few nights ago, and she discovered KK and TKS curled up like doughnuts, butt to butt, furrs touching, snoozing against Dad P’s leg!!! CONTACT!!!

Remember our rescue kitty, Bianca, from the park colony. Check her out after her spay and during her recovery with her foster Mom Miss Helen.

Isn’t she something??? She goes to adoption event next weekend. And she has the most lovely roomie, Miss Penelope.

Of course Katie wanted my readers to check out her latest moves and moments too.

That’s it for us this week with our Monday Meowsie news. Mom L fought with Word Press to do a better presentation of our photos but she lost her battle. We hope you still enjoy seeing us.
