Various Items in Our Lives

Weather is a bit wacky right now. Today and tomorrow are supposed to be around 70, but then dropping into the 50s on Saturday. So Maw plans on raking up the last of the oak leaves that dropped from the trees in December. We might watch her. We might not.

G.T. received his allergy shot yesterday. He was like, "What?" Then he slept. Then he puked this morning.

Annie is now on a steroid pill every other day, so we'll see how her hacking is going with her asthma. Paw says she is acting weird. It's probably because she is on steroids now. She's also eating more. Than normal. Which, when a poodin is Annie's size, they might be classified as obese?

Bow is hanging in there. We appreciate all the purrs and purrayers for him. We don't estimate his remaining time to be long. He is a couple of months from the age of 19. Bless his heart.

Orinch #2 appeared again this morning. Where did Orinch #1 go? These crazy Orinch poodins. And we haven't seen Bob in a while. Bob was not a regular visitor anyway, and we figure that Bob has a permanent home somewhere around here.

It's nice to have visitors. We get an occasional neighbor cat who comes by, and it is always a treat. Hope everyone gets feeling better. (As for the leaves, we had so much wind yesterday I think Dad was hoping they'd all blow somewhere else, but I think it just made more.)

Maybe orinch 1 and orinch 2 are playing games wif you.

we continue to purrr for Bow.

We are starting Billy back on steriods. He's really hafing a hard time breathing and the steriods really helped. except he ate like a pig an peed 10 times more than before. but that's ok.

We always purr for Bow. We want his last months to be wonderful.

They're flooding around here...

Purrs for Bow. I know you'll make him as comfortable as possible.

Prednisone does have nasty side effects, but it's more important to control the asthma. I hope it will make a big difference for Annie.

Bow sure is a grand old Mancat. I am sending many purrs for him, and Annie and G.T.

We are supposed to get a cold front coming through here in the next few days, too. Maybe it's the same one!

Willow said...

China Cat and I are sending purrs over for dear Bow. That's nice that you have visitors to look at - we have woofies walk by in front of our house.

China Cat says that she likes the idea of 70 degrees instead of our 29 degrees!

Purrrrrrrs, Willow

Well, 50 sounds gorgeous to us. It's all a regional thing we guess. We're going to get an arctic express in a couple days with temps going negative.
Maw & Paw you take such wonderful care of you special needs cats and we want to give you some giant sandpaper kisses! XXXXXXX
