It was this morning while she was making breakfast for the critters. She has been hurting all day and has seen the doctor because she has white patches and missing skin on her fingertips and down the length of her fingers.
We’ve been trying to help her ever since this morning and she has tingling and numbness in her fingers and partly up her elbows.
She is having a hard time doing things and her thumb and fingers are swelling – luckily the big Critter was here also and she jumped into action abs helped the Human with the things Sushi and I can’t do. She helped a lot with Lily, and kept the dishes washed all day and made our Human feel a lot better.
The doctor said she had second degree burns and some nerve damage. She’s had a rough time doing anything on the computer because it hurts to type, so we told her to use the swipe keyboard in her phone instead of sitting at the computer at her desk. Swiping with her pinkie is much easier.
It’s Sushi’s shift now. She missed her vet appointment today- lucky girl!
The Can Opener appears to remain conveniently “out of order” except for two meals a day while I waste away on dry cereal that she calls “healthy weight management” food. She has switched my treats from the fun kind to the “healthy” ones- and unless the Tiny One and the Bigger Critter are here, I only get a few of those a day. She doesn’t have a scale for me, but she says she has to help me keep losing weight. Really, I try my best to tell her I’m only actually 6 pounds- and the other 10.03 pounds is cattitude.
But she’s not buying it. Although she does say she has to wonder sometimes. Whatever that means. I sure hope the Critters are here tomorrow, because the biggest one sneaks me roast beef and sausage chunks and Cheetos too -(unless the Can Opener happens to catch her). The Tiny One “accidentally” drops part of her bacon or hot dogs into the rug for me while the Can Opener is running around in the kitchen, and if it were’nt for them, I’d swear I’d be down to 6 pounds by now.
But, at least she makes time to play with me more now. Today she even teased me into going outside with my dangly yellow thingie- and we were having a blast- that is until the creepy guy next door came out and distracted my human. Gee, thanks.
After the neighbor made me nervous, we went back inside and the human was going to put my yellow dangly thingie away, but it looked at me the wrong way, and I had to teach it a lesson- so she let me go for it a little longer and then gave me some “healthy” treats! She says they’re healthy, but they can’t be because they’re so DELICIOUS!
But, the Critters will be here tomorrow, so I’m already excited! Know why? This should explain it… Today, the Tiny One and her sister stayed home with their Mom and the Tiny One wanted to be helpful while Mommy was working so she fed Serafina.
Lucky for Serafina, she left her OWN spoon in the (open) can, and put it back under the counter where they keep the cat food.
Then the Big Critter discovered it, and took this video…..
I’m so excited the Tiny One will be here tomorrow!!!!!! I’ll get to gain back the other 10 pounds of “cattitude!” I can’t wait!
Sitting under my favorite bush so I can bask in the warm sunlight this morning while my Can Opener had her coffee and devotion. The morning is my favorite time of the day- because its quiet and the sun is just warm enough to feel good without being too hot, and the neighborhood is still peaceful. But then,…
She sure is a fussy thing. All I did was try to play. Geez! I think I’ll go look for someone else to play with!
In the evenings when it finally starts to cool off, I love to go outside and lay on the nice, warm sidewalk to enjoy the peace and quiet. Finally the critters have gone home, and the neighborhood screaming machines have been forced to go inside for the night and go to bed.
The neighbors with their loud grass eating machines and annoying sprinklers have finally gone inside and tv’s can be heard through the open windows. I can smell the mint and roses the human has all over the place, and there’s a big, fat strawberry on her plant that I plan to snatch the first chance I get.
Twilight rolls around on the sidewalk so her boyfriends know she’s outside, Sheba starts the mouse hunt, and I lounge and let the heat on the sidewalk make me sleepy. And suddenly-
That flipping human of ours decides to water the grass, and tomatoes and daisies, and everything else inthe yard- including ME!
If looks could kill, the Human would be a shriveled up piece of toast melting on the sidewalk. But I’m not that lucky. Twilight and Sheba were inspecting the lilac tree for possible mouse activity and they saw it coming and scattered. Again, I wasn’t that lucky.
Then I looked over my shoulder dripping wet, and Twilight and Sheba were snickering behind the bushes. Boy, are they gonna pay! I was too busy drying myself off to deal with the Human and those two mouse-hunters, but believe me, I will deal with them.
For now, I’m planning a special ‘surprise’ for the human in the morning- to pay her back for surprising me. For now, I’m getting some much needed rest after my cold shower.
I really don’t like this Paparazzi stuff first thing in the morning, Human.
You’re snapping pictures of me while I’m trying to sleep on your lap. You know that’s a bit of a distraction, right? How about if you just look for some other cats on your phone and let me sleep, alright? You have hundreds of pictures of me anyway, for pete’s sake! I mean, between that and you getting up to refill your coffee, how the heck do you expect me to go to sleep? What is it about that coffee that is so irrestiable to you anyway?
Okay, well that’s a start- are you settled now? I’m going to sleep- no more pictures, ok?
Today is warm and sunny and beautiful. Yesterday was too. But I wasn’t able to enjoy it. It seemed like all of creation set out to ruin my otherwise perfect day. It started the night before last when the Can Opener groomed me and cleaned my eyes and fed me and later tucked me into bed. Sounds great, right? Well it was. Until I got sick- seconds before she was getting into bed herself.
I know people think we cats don’t care if we make a mess for our humans to clean up, (actually some cats really don’t care)- but I’m not one of those. My human babies me and takes care of me (and just about everybody else) – and she’s always so tired when it’s bedtime. So it really didn’t set well with me that I got sick.
She didn’t get upset at me- she just took care of it like she always does, and then she comforted me and gave me snuggles so I wouldn’t feel bad. But somehow that made me feel worse.
So for the rest of the night I didn’t feel good. When everyone woke up yesterday morning, I still didn’t feel good and refused my favorite food when she gave it to me. I knew she felt bad for me but I couldn’t help it. Then the critters arrived, and she spent the whole day taking care of them, and her garden, and making dinner and doing laundry- and she even tried to play with me but I wasn’t up to it.
Then, when the critters finally went home yesterday, and I felt better, I wanted to go outside and lay in the sun. But the neighbors next door had a bbq, and every critter from here to New York was running around in MY YARD! And, as if that wasn’t bad enough, the other neighbors had all their sprinklers turned on so there was no nice, quiet, place for me to lay in the sun. Even Twilight ran inside and fell asleep in her box under the bed!
By the time things quieted down outside, and the sprinklers were turned off, it was time to go to bed again. And the human was too tired to play.
I hope today goes better – but it feels like a Grumpy Cat kind of day to me.
Our human has been researching Siamese kitties. She is so in love with my (adorable) breed that she wants to do some posts about us, because we’re so smart and active, and talkative and entertaining she thinks everyone should have at least one siamese kitty.
When Sushi heard about this, she got jealous. “What’s wrong with me?” she asked. Well, nothing- but you’re not siamese. “I can be if I want to!” she said. Hmmmm. How does that work?
I tried to explain it all to her and she listened for a few minutes but then it was thundering and she ran away -(as fast as a boulder can run, that is). So I went to see where she was “running” to, and discovered it was only her food dish.
Yep. Her tummy growled and I thought it was thunder. My bad.
So, since today is Tuesday (still the start of the workweek for humans and they get all depressed about that)- I decided that today’s blog will be siamese cat memes! We siamese cats are great for relaxing our humans and giving them reasons to smile. So here we go!
