It has been quite awhile since I stopped by to say hello. I am fifteen years old now, and am still hanging in there. I still eat my prescription food (for my "thickened intestinal wall" issue that was diagnosed two years ago), and am now exhibiting symptoms of chronic renal failure.
I feel pretty good, though. My appetite is excellent, I still have lots of energy, and play with my toys. My favorite "activity" is hanging out and/or dozing on my bed in the "garden window".
You lookin' at me? Are YOU lookin' at ME??
It is especially cozy there when it is chilly outside and the sun warms me up. I can also watch birds, squirrels, and Mookie (the homeless cat that showed up last Spring and who the lady brought in to be neutered and get a rabies shot). He has a heated Dogloo in our shed and is spoiled now with good food and lots of attention. He can't come inside because I would put the bitey on him (and he, me).
Mookie. Aka: Moquito, Quito, Scampi
I hope you all are doing fine. Maybe I can convince my secretary (the lady) to post more often, but I doubt it. Once she loses interest in something----fuhgedaboutit. Well, miracles have been known to happen---evidenced by this post.
Today is "Black Cat Appreciation Day". I think. I can never really be sure of anything because I get my information second-hand, from the lady, who is, as I've said many times, useless.
Here are a couple of recent photos of me. One from yesterday: I'm up in a little alcove, spying on the lady. One from about five months ago--me, licking my chops.
I'm doing pretty well for 14 1/2 years old with some medical issues. I haven't had any problems since February 2014. I eat a Prescription kibble ("Metabolic"), and I have a tablespoon or two of canned Fancy Feast (only "Classic" varieties).
We hope you are all doing well.
We wanted to wish all our friends a Happy New Year. There was no partying for me, so no "lampshade on the head", but the lady thought putting this feather toy on my head was very funny. Yeah, very funny.
Yes, it has been a long time. A lot has happened, including a move four hours away, into our own place. We are buying, not renting, so hopefully, we will be here forever. I have a "garden window" upstairs so that I can take a nap in the sun and it is also a nice vantage point for watching squirrels.
Then at the top of the stairs, there is a small alcove where I can watch what is going on downstairs. Nothing ever happens down there, but still...
We are at the 4,500 foot level, so we will get some snow in the winter. I'll be happy to watch that from inside, where I will be nice and cozy. We have some work to do on this place, starting with getting a stove (!), but I think I will like it because it is bigger than our Cambria studio and I really like going up and down the stairs.
I'm supposedly the boss of the lady, but she posts for me when she feels like it. Which is rarely. Her latest excuse(s)? Had to have Windows 7 installed because Microsoft no longer supported Windows XP. She has not re-loaded Photoshop Elements, or the digital camera software. Yeah, right. She always has some whiny "explanation" about why things are not done. She finally uploaded this photo, even though she used some funky free photo thing to crop it.
Anyhow, I am doing very well. Have not had any medical issues in a few months now. I hope all of you are fine. Maybe I can prompt (scratch) her into visiting my online feline friends.
