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?

How can I possibly ignore Kit Katie?

HIYA!! SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Alrighty then! Check out what I go through at  least two to three times a day with Kit Katie aka KK.

The eye to eye contact

and then…

The beginning “I love you” roll

then this…

You can attack me but I am not gonna fight move

and this…

See? I feel safe with you and can turn my back

even more…

I’ll just wait to see if you attack me

here she comes back again…

YAY!! You didn’t and I am coming back over!!

So what’s a senior Princess cat to do with such clearly demonstrated acceptance?

How did you learn to accept your new fur family members? This is tough on me, a thirteen year old Princess.

Do you live an exciting life???

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

I sure do hope some of you can share your exciting lives with me. Around here, not much happens that gets my senior adrenaline pumping! Well at least, nothing happens to the youngsters that gets me all excited.

Why all TKS can come up with to do anything “exciting” is this.

It’s a box!! Whee!!

Yep, TKS can’t ever ignore any empty box. She is convinced all are intended for her sole use and pleasure. Doesn’t take much to “chime her bells”—na’mean??

Now this is big enough to stretch out in. YAY!!

As for the new kidster, Ms Kit Katie aka KK—her idea of “exciting adventure” is this.

Ahhh—window whiffies—makes me so relaxed

Next thing ya’ know she is doin’ this!

Huh?…gonna give my eyes some rest now

Seriously?! This is what my youngsters call “exciting living”??!! Come on my pals, surely you must be doing more than these two to get your adrenaline pumping and to keep your humans on their tippy toes worrying about you??? Share!! Tell me what you do??

As for me—I like to walk on the ‘wild side” now and then. Keeps Mom L thoroughly charged and give HER adrenaline a huge leap!

I just luvluvluv the quilt from this angle

Her silent shrieks (she is terrified if she yells at me I will fall) are the best ever!

Guess I will head over to the real stairs down

Let me know how exciting your life is.

PAW PATS, SAVANNAH
