Nip time never gets old

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

First off I wanna say how sorry I am that I missed my last Monday’s blog post. Mom L and I were all set to get down to writing, but then I had a really bad pain in my right hind leggie and Mom L and Dad P dashed me off to our best animal emergency hospital. It always happens on a Sunday, right? Long story short, it seems I have a soft tissue injury likely gotten when I was trying to get away from that little foster introoder Pipsqueak. He is a five month old black kitten who is always tryin’ to sniff my tail or my butt. Sheeesh! I got some pain meds and that helped lots, but then I had to make another last minute trip to my regular vet two days later. I have a urinary tract infection, perhaps caused by stress?

I am lots better now, but I am still spending most of my daytime napping behind the couch. I am very cautious around the foster Pip. He is such a gentle kitten, not aggressive at all. I just don’t want another kitten to get used to; Katie was enough. Hopefully he will find his true forever home soon!

Now on to my happy nip post! Even an old gal like me, at 14 years, can still enjoy some sniffin’ and pawin’ at nip, right? Mom L loaded up the scratcher on our ball chasin’ toy and sat back to see who would try the nip out first. Guess who??? ME!!!

Mom L wasn’t fast enough to catch me rubbing my face in the nip, all she got were my “what’cha lookin’ at” looks!! MOL

You interrupted me!!

And she got another one trying to capture me enjoying myself!

Come on Mom L; cut out that photo stuff!

We sure did get some great video of Katie havin’ a total Nip Out! She wasn’t gonna share that nip with anyone, not even her new buddy foster kitten Pipsqueak.

Katie was too busy to even notice Mom L and her camera.

She was happy to touch noses with foster Pipsqueak but she wasn’t movin’ over to let him onto that scratcher.

When Katie stopped, she just kind’a stared off into space for a bit! Silly Katie.

Whoa!! Why is the room spinning??

When was the last time you had a nip attack??

Artistic Foster Kitten Pipsqueak

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Turns out my newbie foster kitten, Pipsqueak aka Pip, has some artist talent in him. Who knew a street cat could be so creative??!!

Mom L turned Pip and his sidekick Katie loose on her iPad and their efforts and team work created a very stunning piece of art. But, I’ll leave it to my readers’ judgment about whether or not it’s as pawsome as I think.

Pip’s interest in art showed up when he tried to help Mom L get the photos properly edited for me to write my Friday Memes for Friday Smiles. I must say that he selected his edits with care and taste for making the photo look natural.

His next opportunity came when he got access to the iPad. It started out with a blank slate, just that stoopy schmousie that runs all over the screen eeekking and wiggling its tail. You know the game I mean, right?

Pip asked Katie to take a look and assist him in getting things started. You see Pip was a bit shy at first to start paw whapping that schmousie, but foster sisfur Katie had no problem giving it a few whacks to show Pip how it’s done.

Katie then backed off and did some coaching while Pip tried it out.

Now he was on a roll!! He got down up close and purrsonal with that schmousie and all the colors created whenever Pip whapped him one.

Pip stopped to admire his art work and to consider just how he wanted to complete it.

APAWS   APAWS!!!!

Pip’s final art piece revealed!!

If you have created your own artwork, please share in comments!! I’d luvluvluv seeing what my pals are creating!

Katie has a Toofie Fairy!

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

This post is so much fun to write. Even more fun for Mom L who took all the photos.

Where to start. First, Mom L received a comment from Miss Ellen, 15 and Meowing, about how’s she hadn’t been aware that sweet Katie had to have ELEVEN TOOFIES extracted during her first dental, she is only two years old, back in February. Sadly, KK has stomatitis.

Miss Ellen asked Mom L if the “Toofie Fairy” had visited KK and Mom L, feeling much chagrined, said “no”. Miss Ellen said she would fix that. Hmmmm…now what did she mean?

Late last week we received a package from Miss Ellen who is now KK’s beloved Toofie Fairy! I am sorry I don’t have photos of ALL the pressies KK received as KK has already lost the cute little green and white poka dot knot toy. Needless to say, Miss Ellen knows the way to a kittie’s heart and all were infused with both her love and NIP! The four toys came wrapped in a darling nip and nap pad which KK sleeps on most afternoons, when she isn’t trying to bunny kick the snot outta it!

Here is KK’s first experience with her Toofie Fairy package. KK got right down to business. She smelled, pawed and then took a bite! (Yes, that is TKS’s butt photo bombing the photos!! )

She luvluvluv’d the little tomato toy. She picked it up and carried all around our bed that morning.

She stopped to give it some loving head rubs…

Next she got to chompin’ on that poor worn out little tomato.

Before she tried to bunny kick the snot outta it!!! MOL!!!

She then turned her attention to the smaller pumpkin that had a harder, bouncy center. Dad P was tossing it off the bed and KK was playing world class soccer with it across our bedroom floor and out to the hallway. And yes, she even tried bunny kicking that little thing to pieces.

We took bets on whether or not she would pay any attention to the one toy, a small little hand knitted square, with no nip inside. And KK surprised us all. She had never forgotten that little scrunchie was part of her Toofie Fairy package. She chomped, bunny kicked it and snuggled it!

 

Miss Ellen, you clearly know the heart and soul of all cats. Your toys never fail to create less than at least years worth of cat play. Bless you our furriend, Miss Ellen.
