I’m HOME!!!

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Hear yee, hear yee!! The Princess did not move to Canada, she returned to her much loved home in Pittsburg, California!

Hey guys!! Thanks a ton for appreciating TKS and KK’s attempts at holding the “blog” in my absence and producing the last Friday Memes for Friday Smiles. IMHO—”they did good”!

So for anyone who follows my blog, and doesn’t know, I had the i 131/aka Radiocat hyperthyroidism treatment on January 21. I was in hospital for three nights. My first ever and last ever away stay from my castle.

So here’s my account of my rescue from the hospital.

First, I was so scared and nervous. But then I met my Registered Veterinarian Tech, Ms Erin, and I started to relax. Ms Erin was so kind and caring and compassionate. My treatment was at Animal Specialty Hospital in Oakland, CA.

So Mom L was totally in love with the art they use in their kitty area for intake and discharge. She had leaky eyes when Ms Erin brought me to her.

And then there was the one hour drive home. Mom L did the same thing she did when she and Dad P took me to hospital. She rode in the backseat so’s she could open my carrier and pet me to comfort me.

She even let me get my head and shoulders out to make sure that Dad P was driving safely and headed in the right direction—HOME!!

And then the moment arrived. I was HOME!!

Yeah, yeah, I know Mom L got me all blurry, but you get the idea, right? I was HOME!!

Well then I had to do an entire survey of my castle to make sure no changes had been made in my absence, and no “other” kitty had tried to use any of my stuff!

I started talking to Mom L and Dad P as soon as I left my carrier. I wanted them to know what I thought about this whole ordeal. I let them know that my RVT Ms Erin was super duper awesome. And that I know I am one fortunate kitty to be able to cure my hyperthyroidism. Not every kitty gets to have this. But, I turned out to be allergic to the less costly treatment, even using the transderamal gel on my ears. I started to vomit, then my ears started to itch and I got an infection in one ear. That’s why we all decided that I had to get the Radiocat treatment.

Moving forward…

My inspection of my castle was of course vocal. I meowed all my observations of any changes to Mom L and Dad P.

I checked out the down stairs and then went upstairs. Of course all the while I was being followed by my castle staff

They wanted to make sure I was pleased with how they took care of the castle in my absence. The toughest part was learning that the staff had taken advantage of using my preferred nip toy, the rainbow. A brand new one I got for Christmas in my stocking.

Phew!! Some other cat has spit on my fave Yeow nip rainbow!!

But then I found my holiday tree and it was scent and spit free!!

Ahhh…my spit is still on this one

I ended my inspection once I was assured that my favorite pink beddie was secure and ready for my long nap.

Thank you all for helping me escape. I am now taking a long needed nap

I am so happy that Dad P still serves me my meals anywhere I wanna eat.

Hey Dad P!! I am waiting!!

As some of you know I have lost about two pounds aka 900 grams.  I really need to get that weight back. I am trying, but I am also a very picky eater.

This is my current figure, I am very thin

Thankfully I have Mom L and Dad P to make sure I get whatever I need to keep me gaining weight. The last few days before my treatment, I was really grouchy and took that out on Katie and Sage.

Since my treatment, I am starting to allow closer relations with them.

I know you are butt bumping me Katie, but I want my treat more than giving you a paw whap! MOL

Life is good. Please send my your POTP to help me regain some weight. Thanks guys for being my pals.

Kit Katie aka KK aka Katie 2020 Beginnings

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Katie, as we normally use when talking with her, has had a great start to her 2020 continuing recovery progress. As most of you know, sweet Katie spent her first five months in a hoarding situation. She was forever living in a dark, no windows open, one litter box one bedroom with the human and 25+ cats and kittens. At age five months, when Mom L and Dad P rescued her, she had already had a litter of kittens, most likely deceased. She was terrified and only moved in a “slinking” position.

Katie today.

 

I want to share some of her recent moments, just since 2020 began. First, you all know how much I luvluvluv my tent Mom L makes for me on our bed every morning. Well, lately, TKS has been getting there before I can. And now! Katie!!!

Oddly, Katie often prefers to jump on top of the tent, collapse it and then take her nap on the blanket pile. Strange KK!

Katie has also taken after her mentor, TKS, and found a mad crazy desire for the humans’ chicken dinners! Of course, Dad P just encourage her!

Oh gosh Dad P! This smell devine!

Dad P is incorrigible and allows her a bit more than a sniff. Much to Mom L’s shock.

Reallly? I can take a taste??!!

And of course Katie just had to start 2020, just last night, by giving Mom L another almost certain hysterical attack of impending doom! Our Dare Devil Katie.

As most of you know, Katie has a permanent limp on her right front leg. The radiologist said it looked like she had some trauma in kittenhood that caused her right shoulder joint to not form properly and there is no socket for the right leg to attach to. Nothing can be done and so far this does not hold Katie back one bit. Just makes her more special to us.

Hope you 2020 is getting off to a great start like ours. What’s new with you?

How do you use your television?

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

The question for my Monday post is all about sharing how we all interact with our human’s televisions. Of course I am assuming you 1) live with a human who has a TV and 2) that you care one whiff about said TV!

Starting with TKS.

I can see everything in the living room from here! Sweet!

Of course it never crosses TKS’ mind that NO ONE who is attempting to watch that TV can see through her! This is a new sitting post for TKS and it is driving Mom L mad!! Too funny!!! MOL!

I am NOT a copy cat!! I like it up here!

And there you have it. Katie aka KK has decided to try out TKS’ approach for surveying the room from wherever the humans place their TV.  However, KK chose to take the TV perch on in our bedroom.

Zzzzz…*snort*…zzzzz

As for me, I choose to take my TV time in stride. And nap. What in Ceiling Cat’s name does a human TV have to offer us cats!!

Pretty cute, aren’t they?

And I now that Mom L just luvluvluv’s to see my little pink toe pads when I snooze next to her on our couch while she watches her sill human TV.

So come on my pals, share with me how you use your humans’ television??
