At the movies


Mom L has been busy, busy with our Project Delta View Cats group so I decided to share some movies with yo. This way she doesn’t have to do so much typing. Hope you enjoy seeing some of our experiences working with abandoned community cats here in our city of Pittsburg, CA.

This is Pipsqueaks mom cat. She was moving his little sister Ellie to a new, warmer location. Mom cats are so devoted and brave.

Next up is L’il Jo, the kitten who had the prolapsed rectum, remember? Look at her chow down now! Watch her ears!!! And yes, she can now poop properly!!

Finally, remember I told you that Pipsqueak’s brother Rocky was trapped the same night as Pip? Well, Rocky, all black just like Pip, is now living the life of an inside kitty! The family whose backyard is home to Pip’s former feline family have taken Rocky inside because he so wanted to be with people. He and resident kitty Sapphire bonded quickly. Check out Sapphire’s spit bath for Rocky.

I’ll share more of Rocky’s rescue story in a longer post. It’s worth the read, trust me.

Before I go, I want to report on my visit to Dr Josie at the Kitchen Clinic this last week. She did a blood draw and urine draw for a complete senior blood panel for me. Believe you me, it wasn’t my idea of a fun day. No sireeeee!!!

Seriously, not FUN!!

The results from the lab are back and sadly, I am at the earliest stage of chronic kidney disease, Stage One. Mom L and are feel fortunate that we learned this very early. I know she and Dad P will always make sure I have the best care and I still have years to go. 



I still have some moves!


Mom L  thinks I am about 15 years old. So what? Says I!! I still have enough moves in me to make sure TKS and KK stay in their places whilst in my castle, na’mean?? Just cuz I am mostly deaf doesn’t mean I can’t see!!

I am having some health challenges with my Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) which has haunted me since 2012. So I am headed to my pal Dr. Josie (retired but still my ‘go to’ feline Vet!) on Wednesday to have a senior blood panel done. UGH!!

So that’s why I wanted to post about my upside of my current health. I can’t get up on my cat towers but I use my carpeted steps up to the couch to play with Mom L.

Bring that furry mousie a bit closer Mom L

I need that furry toy a tad closer these days so’s I can catch it. 

Oh! Nice! Lemme try to grab it

My fast moves keep Mom L on her toes!

I got it!!!

If you have followed my blog for years, you may remember that Mom L has a fascination with my toesies. Especially my hind toes. It seems I have rather long hind toes. Who cares? Aren’t they clean!!

My hind toesies and the love of Mom L

Do any of you have special hind toesies? Give me some photos in comments and I will post on my blog next week.


Monday Meowsie News: Nap routine shifts at my castle


I have posted something about the latest changes in my castle napping routine on Mom L’s Facebook page. But I know lots of you do not see that. I think it is another part of how I am managing my openness and progress with Katie and yes, even TKS, after we have been together for about six years.

As you know I have always preferred to nap alone in my special places. Why even my trusted pet sitter Miss Kandi realized she was interrupting my nap on my couch when she came to visit, but she knew I could not miss out on her pawsome head massage.

Well I think I may have digressed from my original intention of bragging updating you on my progress relative to hanging out with “the other girls” in my castle.

So first of all, KK found out about the back of the couch after we bought her a new blankie from Miss Peggy Marting.

That led to this.


And then that led to another “this”!!

Yep!! All three of us on the couch napping one lovely morning.

Then we tried out this configuration.

Yeah I know the bed is a mess, BUT, check out how close we all are!

Then this happened just a day ago. Dad P purposefully placed blankies strategically on our master bed just to see if we might all “line up”.  And we did!!

I just keep on showing more and more of my REAL SELF!  Even though I am now hard of hearing, I can smell and feel movement when KK and TKS come near me. And yet, I am more tolerant. Time, patience and love.
