Fleurp face pretty much sums up my mood



Things over at Casa de Gato have been quite wonky lately.A couple of weeks ago I noticed this


For some reason, Skippy has been over grooming his back feet and had started working on his belly by the time I realized it.  I've tried my best to spend one on one time with him, I've been dosing him with Rescue Remedy in case he was getting paranoid about all of the packing going on (and I've slowed down on that quite a bit). The fur stopped disappearing, but then he started losing weight, nearly half a pound. I had a feeling it might be an issue with all of the fur so I have started plying him with all kinds of hairball treats and giving him extra food and he seems to be on the upswing.

We are still having issues with Jack and his thyroid. I even went so far as to buy the name brand for human thyroid meds and we are still having issues. To give him enough medicine that his body will regulate his weight, his bladder becomes unhappy and he starts to urinate outside of the box. So I am giving him enough to maintain his weight and seriously hoping that is enough.

Fleurp has started licking mirrors. It is the first sign of her anemia. I've been thinking for a while that when she sheds her coat that is somehow interfering with her blood count. Now that her winter coat is coming in and she is losing her summer fur, I'm even more convinced. I can Furminate her but she hates it and usually ends up snapping at me. Hopefully, with some extra iron and a concerted effort to groom her more regularly will keep her on keel. I plan to give her a lion cut in the spring and we'll see first hand if my theory holds out.

My caterpillars are still green and hanging in there. It has been 10 days since the one in the house formed and they can take up to 15 days, so hopefully soon.. I fear that they are both dead though, but that's just because I'm me.

Sadly, it looks like Muffin has developed a growth on her nose.


I really really want it to be a dirt spot but it is raised and it bothers her when I tried to clean it off. She will have to see a vet again.. *sigh* the bump behind her ear has also started growing and she has a tooth that could use some attention. My poor old girl.. (I'm quite worried)

Now, on to the less depressing things. I saved a frog yesterday


and by saved a frog I mean I herded the frog out of the garage and back into the yard. Not a very exciting rescue, but it was fun watching him jump.. He jumped impressively high.

Now, on to the what was that from Friday


Unfortunately, there was no good way to get a perspective image but many of you guessed that I was in quite tight.  A couple of you were close with a molar, but it is actually a wad of tartar that I was able to scrape off one of Twee's teeth. I asked the husband to pick a number between one and eighteen, the number of comments and he picked 12. Greg from Feline Cafe and his Perogi comment that actually made me lol totally wins.

  15. Congrats to Greg! I am sorry you have so many sick kitties, I will add them all to my prayer list. Don't worry about the chrysallis, the ones we had took around 20 days, it will turn black right before the butterfly emerges.
