Mancat Monday





Here is Bow in his favorite spot. In the cat enclosure, lying on the ground. He loves to stay out there almost around the clock, coming in only during the hottest part of the day. Unfortunately, we had to take the cat enclosure down yesterday because we are having new windows installed. The cat enclosure is pretty much rotted away and needs to be rebuilt. Let's hope the cats don't drive us nuts before we can get it rebuilt! They already miss it, and are sitting by the window that held the cat flap and looking longingly into the backyard.

Dorfie Update: He is doing much better, and is trying to escape from his convalescence prison. He tries to lick his sweater off when I take his e-collar off. He is scheduled to get the feeding tube and bandage and sweater off this Thursday as long as he continues to eat on his own. I've started mixing in his favorite food which is Gatsbi's R/D with the a/d since he has developed really gooey squirts from the a/d and the antibiotics. I soak the R/D overnight and then mash it up with the a/d. He is eating that very well (from a spoon).

Thanks for your continued support for Dorfie and all of your well wishes for his improvement! It helps tremendously!

Hi Bow, my nose twin! You're lookin' good. (sigh) I envy you being able to lay on grass. My feet have never even touched it. The last time I snuck out, I only made it as far as the sidewalk before Mom saw me!

Glad to hear Dorf is doing better.

I'm so glad Dorf is doing so well! Well, of course not the squirts, but the eating part is great! It looks nice outside but I'm still not convinced I should ever visit Out of Doors.

Yeah for Dorfie! Thursday will be here before you know it. That enclosure looks like heaven. We live in a silly condo with no grass of our own. I think we must be poor. Oh well, you're very lucky to have that. I hope it's rebuilt real soon.

Dorf sounds like he's feeling much better; what a day of rejoicing when all the tubes and clothing come off!

Karen Jo said...

Yay, Dorfie, you'll be getting the collar and sweater off in just a few more days. I'm sorry about the squirts, but very glad that you are eating OK from the spoon. Poor Bow, without his enclosure. I hope it can be rebuilt very soon.
