The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

A kimi art picture for the Autumn Season


Yes...the Bad is it is snowing and cold, and that is ugly as well... we mean the clean white blanket is OK, but the coldness of it isn't at all,,,and its so sloppy and slippery on the roads, that is the ugly.

The good is, we are cozy and safe and warm.

The good also is, meowmy is feeling better than when she got back from her trip. She is sounding less like  dog, and more like her human self!

Ugly is when you get up in the morning and find barf on the carpet...on the chairs and even in a kitty bed. UGH. More times in a week that meowmy wants ti think about. All whilst she was gone. Pawppy thought it was a case of bad furballs getting yakked out...um...meowmy didn't think so.




Bad is when the meowmy stuffs us into carriers, covers them to keep cold winds out, and takes us on the 8 mile trip to the vet lady. Pipo left a hole in meowmy's wrist...yes, more ugly, MOL!

Pipo was bad and was not about to come out of the carrier, despite how much he hadn't wanted to go tin in the furst place, MOL!

Ugly is seeing the number on the scale...14.6!! OMC! That is Fat!
So he will have to be more closely monitored as to how much he eats and what. And more playtime, but that falls in the good section...

Ugly and bad and scarey is seeing Minko's number on the scale,  7.2. Yikes! What a lot of his weight has been stolen away from him. Why? What is going on?
So he was poked and prodded some more and the vampire stole more blood from him than from Pipo...and he was bad, because Minko is an expert wiggler! MOL! The vampires had to try three veins to get any, MOL!

Both kitties were stabbed for the usual things...to them that must have been both ugly and bad, MOL!

Now it is wait and wait and try not to be too anxious about what may be Minko's trouble. It could be simple or complicated. We have to hope it is simple. If the blood work doesn't tell us anything, then the options are to do extensive testing. However, that would be looking for things such as tumors...and while we know they can be treated, we as kitty pawrents simply do not wish to subject our kitties to that. It may extend their time with us, but we think the suffering to do that is selfish on our part. So we would try pain medicines and maybe steroids.
So we expect the worse and hope for the best. Meanwhile, meowmy is hand feeding Minko to ensure that he does get some nutrition. Poor little guy.
And more ugly...They both have ugly tartar and some gingivitis, so we will be scheduling a teeth cleaning one of these days...sigh...


After they got home, they both were in hissy mode...at the dog-guy, and at each other. Stressed out. Ugly!
Today the hissing continues, but not as bad.

Now we just need to get the sun to come out from behind all the snowmaking clouds.

Meowmy goes back to her work tomorrow, too...her vacation time is ended...that to her is bad and ugly, MOL!!


We joined Athena for her Caturday artwork this week because we thought our Kimi was 'artsy'! MOL! Meowmy took one of our pictures and put it into a kimi template, and then manipulated all the elements to make it original...she also added more elements, and changed some of the colors.

  9. Wow! What a Jeckyl and Hyde day you two had!
    When it was time for Maddie cat to move out of our house, it was like stalking a wild tiger. We doggies had to wait in the garage for this so we wouldn't get involved. Mom and Dad and Joanna had to chase her into one bedroom and shut the door. Then they had to slowly remove every single piece of furniture. The mattresses were stood on end against the wall. (All this was so she couldn't hide under anything.) Then they threw a blanket over her and stuffed the whole clawing, spitting, screaming, peeing, pooping, hissing, barfing, angry mess into the carrier. Miss Joanna was scratched all over her arms! We doggies couldn't understand what all the fuss was about. Maddie was going to move into her own apartment with her favorite human where she would be treated like royalty and no doggies would be there to annoy her! She is quite happy and spoiled now and the traumatic move an old faded memory.
    Oh, BTW, you two don't look over or under weight to me! And your autumn portrait looks lovely, except for the squirrels! Haha! We are hoping all the tests turn out OK.

  10. Pipo would do your Maddie well, he can be a good hider when ever he needs to be found, MOL!
    Our Angel-Groucho was like that too...sigh...
    Actually meowmy can feel all of Minko's bones...that is shocking to her, how they can mask things until it gets serious.

    Those squirrels sort of crept into that kimi. They are such a tease!

    Thanks fur all the purrs and pawyers.

    1. Thank mew!

      Meowmy loves to make those 'artsy piccies'...but the making of them is hard on her arthritis tendencies in her fingers...so even with a spawsial keyboard and mouse, it still causes some trouble. She fur sure couldn't do it full time, MOL!

      Yes doing art is furry 'catisfurring'!
      Though with meowmy's joint issues, sometimes not good to do it too extensively.
