CATS ON TUESDAY
Last wednesday was my day ! I had to drive Mr. Gattino to the hospital for his Carotide surgerey and Rosie to the vet, because for 2 days she had thrown up water ! I was very worried as you can easily imagine.
Rosie sitting unhappy behind grids !
She wasn't used to the car at all and I had a meauw concert the whole way long ! My poor nerves !
Fortunately we were the first once and could go in right away. After having checked her trough and through, the vet said she had a stomac infection and gave her two shots. I was relieved and we returned home. I let her out of her prison and she meauwed a little less on the way back.
At home she found immediately a new napping place. Meanwhile she is fine, eats again and puts her mousies around the food bowls.
This morning the Doctor came for Mr. Gattino, who instead of staying one week in hospital asked for going home after 4 days already ! Now I am the hospital. Arthur was very pleased about this unexpected visit and of course had to check what the doctor carried in his bag !
was there anything underneath ?
perhaps on the other side ?
After a last check up on the bag, he finally went away, disappointed !
Disappointed he jumped on the table for a little wash and joined Rosie who was checking on birds.
CATS ON TUESDAY
I really have troubles again with Lisa, she is a real nag and that is not even an appropriate expression.
She gets old like some vicious old ladies whose only pleasure is to get on the nerves of people around them. For those who don't know, Lisa is 17. In the 45 year I had cats, she is the first one with such a behaviour while getting old !
It went quite smooth when we gave her the tranquilizing pill the vet had prescribed, then she didn't pee anymore on the carpets or meow and yowl during the night. But now we had to stop with the pill, because Mr. Gattino will have a surgery at his carotide on thursday and has to go to the hospital for a week. I am unable to give Lisa the pill alone.
Has anybody an idea what I could do, because it is really terrible. I can't lock her in a room either, because of the others who need the cat flap to go in and out. I could lock her into the bathroom with a litterbox, but I don't have the heart to do that especially as she suffers of anxiety.
- I tried to cut the pill in pieces and put it in chicken dices, it worked once then she became suspicious.
- I diluted the pill and put it in minced meat, same result as above.
- I tried with a syringe, no way she escapes
- She feels when I approach to give her the pill and hides !
Do you know another remedy ? I will get mad with this interrupted sleep and the wee wees and she is so bullheaded, she never gives up !
Since a few months Lisa sleeps here on the doormat in the entrance. Rosie who is very jalous when I am occupied with Lisa to feed or cuddle her, occupies her place here to protest and won't let Lisa back ! But Lisa as old and slow as she is can still hiss and chase Rosie away !
To avoid a confrontation Rosie did a Yoga exercise and went away leaving the place to Lisa
The only one who doesn't care about my troubles with these females around him is my philosopher Arthur, as you can see here !
CATS ON TUESDAY
Arthur thinks that now with his winter fur he needs two places to nap. The table and the sofa and he slept there in this rather uncomfortable way the whole morning, until he decided to go out and see what is going on on the street.
The weather was sunny and there were quite a lot of people walking their dogs in the street. Arthur loves dogs, they are so funny ! He sits on the little wall besides our house and looks at the dogs walking their owners. As soon as the dog has seen Arthur he pulls his owner who looks then like doing water ski, and barks at Arthur and jumps and behaves completely hysterical in Arthur's eyes. He stoically sits there and seems amused ! Dog owners who know Arthur, walk their dogs on the other side of the street ....
and while I am typing this post I have this view !
Concerning a new blogroll, for the moment I can't do anything because Blog Rolling broke down and they try to repair it. So I have to wait, because I can't find another service like that.
Please don't forget to put your name in Mr. Linky and visit the other participants !
CATS ON TUESDAYA miracle happened ! Since there is the global warming going on, for the first time since 7 years it snowed in Brussels more than just a few flakes not even covering the grass in the gardens. Today we could even make a snow man. For Rosie it was the first time she saw her world outside in white and she didn't dare to go in this white stuff. I throw a little snowball and automatically she ran behind. But the poor thing almost got a nervous breakdown and ran back like a flash, whereas Arthur was delighted !
Rosie kissed him good bye and then gracefully he jumped around like a mixture between an elephant and a kangaroo, rolled in the snow and was the happiest cat in the world !
Here you can see him white on white ! I was angry with me because I never tried to make a little video on my new camera and therefore couldn't do one.
Rosie had found a package on the table and as she is a woman and women are supposed to be curious she tried to open it
she was working very hard to get all the paper off
and finally what did she find ?
A new cat for my cat collection and no treats !
I have to go through the blogroll, some members left, some new joined and some didn't leave a link.
If you want to continue or to participate please put your name and your http//.... address in the comments , it would make it easier for me to add you to the blogroll.
May I also ask you to try to comment on all blog members and not only on one or two or only on mine.
Otherwise everything remains the same. Please keep in mind that this group is mostly for those who don't have a separate cat blog, but want to talk about their cats once a week. But of course everybody is welcome to exchange the funny adventures with our fury darlings !
