Thursday Thirteen #22

Thirteen Reasons Why Obi is High Maintenance

1. He has long, fine fur that tangles under his armpits if it doesn't get combed regularly.

2. He has Feline Herpes1 or Rhinotracheitis Virus.

3. Because of his Herpes1, he gets really big eye goobers in his right eye that have to be cleaned out daily.

4. His nose runs all the time because of his Herpes1 virus.

5. He had a horrible bladder infection and became blocked and had to get a Penile Urethrostomy. Now after he goes pee, he kinda dribbles a few times because his valve doesn't shut off completely.

6. He yaks up hairballs because of his really long, fine fur.

7. He hates to be combed or brushed although he always needs it.

8. He used to get bullied by Dorf when Dorf's teeth hurt. Now that Dorf doesn't have any teeth anymore, he bullies Dorf and Annie.

9. Whenever he rassles with Sally or Reno or Smokey, his true siblings, there are chunks of Obi fur left behind.

10. He's kinda like Pigpen from the Peanuts comics, except he has a cloud of furs that follow him around instead of a cloud of dirt.

11. If he eats too much stinky goodness, he yaks.

12. If he has the squishy poos, he goes in the bathtub instead of the litter box.

13. His ears get gunky dirty and have to be cleaned weekly.

Poor Obi. He does sound rather high maintenance. I'm high maintenance too, since I need to be bathed weekly and need by claws clipped twice a week. Plus, like Obi, I get waxy ears and goopy eyes (mine are due to my lack of fur) and so they need to be cleaned too. Obi, we can sympathize together about being high maintenance.

Hahahahaha! Obi is like a kitty Pigpen! That's very funny. My ears get grubby, too. But I never got a fur tangle in my armpit. That's funny, too.

There is nothing wrong with high maintenance as long as the beans understand the needs. Kitty has many of the same afflictions, but he LOVES being brushed! Number 10 is my favorite - very funny!

Eye goobers, hairballs, yaks, and stinky poos - we could say poor Obi - but no - Obi is rich. He gots good beans to take care of him and lots of good brothers and sisters.

Poor Obi.Good thing he lives with beans that love him.Hey,at least he uses the bathtub ;)

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

It cood be worser, Speedy will go on anything left on the floor in da litter boks room if he feels icky. He particularly likes soft things like kitty beds and pillows. He barfs at least once a day, usually more offen. But, he duzzent have dirty ears or eye gunk and he won't fight wif anyone...Zippy on the other hand will fight wif anyone.

The Cat Realm said...

Poor Obi. It is good he has such a wonderful home where beans are taking care of him!
