Caturday Artistic Oldie

Hi pals in Bloggerland ( as meowmy calls it).
Here is another oldie artwork from our archives...as we joined up fur the blog hop...hosted by Athena.


Minko wants to thank all of you fur the purrs and pawyers on his behalf.
The labs that were done were inconclusive, but seemed to show that purrhaps he has some pancreatic issues. OMC:(
Not wanting to stress him out too much, we discussed just trying to modify the dietary intakes and see if that helps. (And not bringing him in fur more lab work, or tests. Which meowmy cannot afford anyways.She just left over 500 green papers there to have the routine things done fur us and dog-guy, OUCH!)  (To put it in perspective...meowmy would have to work over 2 of her work weeks to pay just that...part time nurses aides do not work to get rich, MOL!)So meowmy will be picking up some prescription food...Minko is so finicky, sure hopes he will at least try it.
And if Pipo decides to feast off of it, Oh, dear...well, at least we have something to work with, just pawyering that the pancreatic disease is not from the big C.
Minko is eating some, but only if meowmy puts it into his mouth...otherwise he just stares at it or tries to cover it up in a show of disdain. His bouts of vomiting are somewhat less...from 2 - 3 times a day to once or twice...If he eats enough he will play and or come to head bonk meowmy or use her shoes as his scratching post, a habit he has from kittenhood, MOL!

Meowmy is herself kind of bummed too...she was going to be having off for Thanksgiving, but now her schedule got changed, and she will be working. The good part is that means she will be off for Christmas:)
So if no mews comes out from here...well, meowmy will be busy! Our unfurs will be coming. But no festive meal here till the day after, so that her full attention can be put into the making of all the noms! Um...that also means no shopping on that day, MOL! She nevfur does anyways...she hates all those crowds and the seeming greed and I want it attitudes.

The turkey will be there...she got one at her work! MOL! ( They always give them to their employees each Thanksgiving.) At least it was cold enough to leave in her car while she was at work.

OK, now we got to go and snuggle with pawppy fur a while, w have not seen him fur 5 days and we are glad to have his nice lap back!

  6. Healing purrs for Minko, we hopes the new diet helps his issues. Paws crossed he will like the food, try not to get discouraged if it takes a while for him to eat it (especially as he doesn't seem that anxious to eat) it took Socks a long time to eat his y/d food. A very long time Mommy was about to give up.

    We loves your picture very pretty and just right for Thanksgiving.

    Our Mommy doesn't like to shop either and she probably has to go get something for Grandma at the mall but she will do it before that horrible day when people rush to the stores. Mommy says shopping is bad enough without crowds of rude people added to the mix.

    1. Thank mew.

      What meowmy doesn't like is the amount of things in the ingredients that our furs nevfur eat...all those grains and processed stuff. We wish there was a more natural way to treat this.

  8. So sorry to hear about Minko. We all hope he feels better soon. Our ghostwriter is working TG too. In medical fields, you always have to work holidays! At least all the big wig bosses won't be there, Mom says.

    1. Thanks pups!

      Meowmy has always worked in the medical world in some capacity, so she gets that...and she really doesn't mind to work those days,its just disruptive when you think your schedule was going to be this way and a week before the thing gets switched...and no one even told her, she just saw it on the board. AARGH!:( So she had to change all her plans...good thing the freezer is already full, MOL!)
      Sometimes where meowmy works the big wigs will come in at meal times to help a bit and have some social time with our residents. And they do have to sometimes take a w/e or a holiday. Hey its a 24/365 affair there! Don't you know?! MOL! Just hope the weather cooperates...

  15. Beautiful photo :) Urg! about work :( Our Mom is a nurse and takes lots of call so we understand the schedule thing. Crossing paws and fingers the food thing works. The Katnip Lounge puts Fortiflora on their soft food to help Konakitty eat since she is really finicky. You might try that....Ralphie hates everything too so Mom doesn't know what she will do if he ever goes off his food :( POTP full power!!!!

  16. Thank Mew!

    So far its not too bad one day and a disad=ster the next. Pukies all the time some days, only one maybe another...now we got scoots on the floor, ARGHH!

    Not too bad with the schedule change, cause there are only 4 of us 'doing' the celebrationings, but some peeps had major plans, One weeks notice seems rather rude...oh well...

  18. Hi, Dezi & Lexi & Mom
    Thanks so much.
    Turkey?? Hmmm we shall have to go in begging mode to score any of that. Pipo is real good at begging, he paws at you till he gets his way, or gets shooed away, MOL! ( Haven't seem Minko beg for anything other than scritches lately...)

  19. Wow, we are going to be purring and praying for Minko. Even though your Thanksgiving will be a day late, we wish you a happy one. We think being home at Christmas is an okay trade off. Mom says, "Just say 'no' to Black Friday!" She has never participated and has no plans to start. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo p.s.. We really like your fall art collage.
