After my flea adventure with Rosie she was very upset that I had dared to put this stinky product against fleas on her precious fur coat and therefore she did a very thorough cleaning

with acrobatic features to get rid of the smell. Maybe also to check if ever there was another flea squatting her fur in the middle of winter !

When she had finished, the watched TV, I don't know what it was maybe it was a program about how to educate humans.

Miracles happen, I discovered Kim who has never even tried to sit besides Arthur and had only slept besides her sister Pookie, sleeping peacefully side by side on the couch in the living room. I thought it looked so cute the black and the white fur balls.

Now that Arthur's gums are healed and he is still eating his special food, he puts on weight and is nearly back to his normal roundness. Honnestly I prefer a fat cat to a skinny one, although he is not fat (yet).

After his supper he was tired and sat on the heating, admiring himself in the window, then he yawned and settled down for a little nap, before his belly got too hot.

And I got the impression to see double.

Saturday the sun was shining for an hour or so and "inside" Pookie choose to go outside and take a little sunbath. She even found a partner to warm her up !

A big "thank you" to "The chair speaks" who spoke to me and gave me this elegant award along with some rules, that I should talk about me and name 7 other winners. As you know me since years now, I skip the self description and suggest that you all diserve an award. Please help yourself !

Please do not forget to visit each other, it would be nice that everybody gets a comment from the COT group participants !!

A flea? Rosie had a flea??? How shocking! I hope she's flea free now.

See you what you mean about Arthur and thoroughly agree. A little padding on a kitty is a good thing. Especially an older kitty.

Thank goodness the flea is dead! When Peanut gets a flea treatment he runs around in circles and froths at the mouth like he's having a fit. Fortunately they haven't had any fleas in a long time.

Pod and Charlie had their flea treatment this week, despite it being a pellet on the back of the neck Charlie still acted like a drama Queen and ran out through the cat flap afterwards! Love the black and white kitties together, and that one of Pookie and her friend :O)

Mom puts some liquid between my shoulder blades that is good for fleas, ticks, and ear bugs--whether I need it or not. I can't reach it to wash it off.

Mom says Waterloo is a wonderful place. I'll stop in on the way to Holland. I guess I have to be careful. (She says you have a lion there.)

Your white cat is beautiful. Wow! And Pookie is so funny to go and sit next to that cat statue, like they are buddies! Kitties are so funny.

Have a great day!

Hi, it's so nice to be back here on COT again and see all your wonderful cats and what they are up to.

btw. I still have a very temporary internet connection. Hope my pro-line will be up and working during March.

You have such a sweet kitties -- I'm glad that Arthur is feeling better! And I'm sure Rosie will never let you live down the indignity of a flea treatment :-)


Thank You very much for Your visit!
