Hey everybody! Two months in a row. Can you believe it? This is just going to be a fairly short update as mom has lots of errands to do today. She has to go to McAllen to pick up Ocean and said as long as she has to go there she might as well make the most of it. She talks about McAllen like it is on another planet but it is only 30 miles away.
If you follow me on Instagram, you know that mom took Ocean to the vet on Tuesday. She took him to Pet Doctor 911. I was a little concerned for him because that’s where she took Echo and he never came home. She assured … Continue reading →
I have a funny story to tell you. It’s been a secret but I guess it won’t be after I tell you about it.
If you’ve ever met me or really looked at some of my photos, you know I’m not the most svelte kitty out there. I’ve never had the slim waist like my brofurs Echo and Ocean. This is evident even in this photo from the BlogPaws conference in Phoenix in 2016 when I weighed about 11 fluffy pounds.
I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m a napping kind of kitty. If I were a human, I guess you’d call me a couch potato.
Mom has known for a while that I had gingivitis or probably even stomatitis. Stomatitis in cats is an inflammation of the gums and mucous membranes. It can be very painful. Mom tells me no one seems to know what causes feline stomatitis but that it may be an allergic reaction to the plaque on our teeth. All vets and researchers know is that it is an abnormal immune system response. They suspect that … Continue reading →
Today is spa day. It’s our special grooming day and mom tries to schedule one every week. We all get a thorough brushing and our nails trimmed. Thank catness baths aren’t included! That reminds me, mom read recently that baths are not necessarily a bad thing for cats. I hope she’s not thinking that means me. I’m an indoor cat and do a fine job of bathing myself. Sometimes I wish she wouldn’t do so much research.
I really enjoy the brushing half of our grooming routine. I love being brushed but I’d just as soon mom leave the nails alone. I just get them nice and sharp and she chops them off. I … Continue reading →
Frankly, my mom hadn’t heard much about whisker fatigue, or whisker stress, until she did some research for a post she wrote about kitty whiskers on her Savvy Pet Care blog. If she had asked me, I could have told her all about it. I mean, doesn’t it make sense that since our whiskers are very sensitive, that it would be uncomfortable to stuff our face in a small dish to eat? And humans wonder why their kitties ask for more food when the dish is not empty. Humans can be pretty lame sometimes!
After mom did the above mentioned research, she started looking for other dishes for us, so when we were contacted and asked if we wanted … Continue reading →
Do cats really like fish? I ask this question because it came up at our house this past week. The answer to this question in our house is, it depends.
Mom got us some Primalsardine grind at our local store where she gets our raw meat. Since we love an occasional treat of tuna, she thought we would love this. Ocean dove right into it … Continue reading →
My brofur, Ocean, is prone to chin acne. He has had it off and on most of his life, although his outbreaks have been very mild for the past couple of years. Maybe that’s because it is common in kitties 2-4 years old due to hormones and he is six now.
When mom first discovered it several years ago when he was a youngster, she thought he just had a dirty … Continue reading →
