Hi everyone! I am a day late for Sabi Saturday, but here is my entry. (Sabi Saturday is a hop where you show something old, repurposed or upcycled. I have shown this in the past, but not for Sabi Saturday so here it is again.
This was my mom’s book as a child. I guess it is still technically hers, but I am the keeper of it. Does anyone know what Dolly Madison’s surprise was?
Hi everyone! Before we get started we want to give our condolences to Colehaus Cat on the loss of beautiful Miss Newton. If you haven’t already visited, click here.
Today is D day for the A-Z Blogging Challenge. D is for discount care plans. I recommend asking your vet if they have one. Our vet is a VCA and they offer them. I admit I haven’t signed up for one because I can’t afford to do it for each cat. If you only have one or two kitties , it is a wise choice. You pay a set monthly fee that covers vet visits, exams, dentals, etc. All items are discounted, but if your cat passes away, you still have to keep paying monthly or you have to pay full price for any exams already used. This is the link for the VCA care club.
Millie is giving a sneak preview of our upcoming Chewy review.
I have a few medical updates. Millie could use some prayers. Last Tuesday, I felt a small lump on his side so we took him to the vet on Wednesday. The vet did a needle aspiration and it is a mast cell tumor. Apparently in cats, they don’t tend to spread. Joanie had one removed from her face a few years ago and Angel Lucy had a toe removed when she had one. Ideally, we would just get it removed to be on the safe side. Nothing is ideal though, Millie has a heart murmur and is almost 15. He has also lost weight despite the fact that his thyroid is under control with meds. He will need an ultrasound to check his heart before any surgery, he also needs an ultrasound on his tummy to be sure he doesn’t have a cancer.
KaTwo’s lumps are a little bigger. Fortunately, her appetite is still good and she is still playful and enjoying life.
Sammy is also scaring me. He has a bump on his nose. I have been watching for about 10 days and it is still there. I think it is a little smaller, but I am not sure if that is wishful thinking. I will be making an appointment for him soon.
Today Prancie has a recheck on some of her blood work and Emmy is getting her annual blood tests. Seems like we are always at the vet.
Hi everyone! Today is Mardi Gras so several of my kitties have agreed to pose with beads. First though, Joanie wants to tell you about her new food. I know dry food is not recommended, but that is all Joanie can eat. She has yacked up every canned food I tried on her and she tends to eat the dry too fast and yack that up too. When my friend told me about PawTree and sent me a sample for Joanie I was thrilled.
*Disclosure: I was sent a sample of PawTree Real Chicken Recipe for cats. I was not asked to do a review, but I am choosing to. All opinions are my own.
As you can see in the photo, the pieces are small. She usually eats out of a bowl, but I thought it would be easier to see the food this way. It is made in the USA. No corn, wheat or soy. You can check out all the facts by clicking here. The link goes directly to my friend’s PawTree page so she can get a commission on sales. They have several other flavors too and canned food which I will be ordering for Joanie to test soon. Joanie has been eating this for a few weeks and so far, no yacking- knock on wood , 3 times.My only complaint is shipping costs, but Joanie is worth it. Now on to the beads!
Joanie and Gremmie
Who wore them best? No one can top Angel Lucy from 2015. She earned her beads.
