Guess da one good fing is dat ifin weez not do evewyfin’ weez posed to they’ll take us off da list. Meez gotta tell ya’ we only follow a couple hunnewed blogs and we have twubble getting’ to all of you evewyday. Weez not know how they’re gunna get wound to da ovew 1000 bloggies dat be signed up. Whew, meez just glad it’s not us.

Meez not fink mommy wuld get any sleep next mumff ifin it wuz. Me knows we fur sure wuldn’t get any stwoller time. And well…dat just can’t happen. It’s posed to be nice and sunny so me plans on makin’ mommy take Lexi and me boff fur a foo stwolls. Speakin’ of da good wedder yous all know we got a new neighbor this past summer duwin’ da whole flood fiasco. Well she wuz outside today diggin’ up da gwound to plant. Well let me tell ya’ a little stowry. It stawted a long time ago when mommy and sis Lexi furst moved down to this pawt of Oklahoma. Mommy wuz much yunger then and kuld do lots mowe than hers can now a days. And she ‘cided to gwo a gawden. Da wedder stawted getting’ nice and all da stowes wuz carryin’ all their plants and seedlings and evewypawdy wuz buyin’ and plantin’. So mommy got out hers seeds and went to diggin’ and plantin’. She planted corn and beans and watermelon, and taters, and tomatoes, and lots of herbs and flowers. She watered and tended hers little seeds evewyday. 

And afur she knew it they wuz spwoutin’ up outta da gwound. Just when they got big nuff to be called “tender plants”, ‘bout da end of Apwil, da bootyful sunny warm wedder changed. And overnight there came a fureeze and killed off all da little plants mommy had planted along wiff all da ones evewypawdy else planted. Da next week when it warmed up again mommy saw all those same peeps weplantin’ all da plants they just lost. Da nex year mommy watched all those peeps buyin’ seedlin’’gs again and plantin’ ‘em up in Apwil just liked da year afur, and just like da year afur there came a cold snap what killed all those plants again. Evewy year this happens and evewy year all da locals plant and then have to weplant. Mommy sez evewy year she wishes dat ifin they just wanna fwo away munny they wuld fwo it ow way. MOL So da new neighbor, hoo by da way has lived here most of hers life, and is no spwing chick be out there diggin’ and plantin’ yesfurday. So mommy offewed up a little advice ‘bout maybe waitin’ till May to plant. And she sed she knew ‘bout da fureeze, she lost evewyfin’ but pears evewy year. Well then all we can say is quit complainin’ ‘bout not havin’ any munny.

Da udder VET finally called too. They sed they didn’t wanna tweat hers infection at this time and wuld just do a wepeat uwinalysis in a kuplle weeks along wiff new blood tests. No, weez nevew goin’ back there. And now dat weez fwu, mommy’s gunna be weportin’ them.

Is Lexi Still A Service Cat?

Meowllo evewypawdy. Anudder mumff is almost ovew. Can you believe how fast this year is flyin’ by? Or is it just us? Cuz we fink it’s goin’ by way too fast. Sis Lexi’s gunna be havin’ a Meowday next mumff. And of course we celebwate da whole mumff long. Hers gunna be 16 this year. Mommy kuldn’t be happier. And speakin’ of sissy we got a foo emails and comments by peeps wantin’ to see sissy’s test wesults ifin we didn’t mind. And of course weez not mind. Weez didn’t include them in ow posty cuz mommy wuz so angwy dat she furgot dat sum of ya’ wuld actually know what you be lookin’ at, and weez didn’t know how to shawe a PDF. But da suppowt gwoup likes to use Dwopbox, so weez’ll shawe it dat way. Da only fing weez ask is dat yous let us know yous lookin’ at ‘em and afterwards purrlease give us yous 10 cents. So ifin yous wanna see Lexi’s test wesults, then click here.  

 dw Dezi leaves tree1a

Amongst da emails weez weceived ‘bout sis Lexi’s kidney disease, weez also been asked ifin she has quit “workin’” fur mommy as a Service cat or ifin mommy wuz gunna get anudder service cat. Afur me splains let me furst say…NO!!! No she hasn’t stopped bein’ a service cat and No, mommy seez no weason’ to get anudder Servie cat at this time. And accowdin’ to mommy she dusn’t evew wanna be in da pawsition to have to get anudder Service cat. So, dat oughtta tell ya’ where we awe in acceptin’ sissy’s kidney disease. Weez still purrayin’ and believin’ dat we can weverse it. Cuz, sissy dusn’t miss a beat. She actually seems to be givin’ mommy mowe head massages lately.

 dw Lexi 3924

Altho’ what we do fur mommy is technically work, we enjoy it and weally like duin’ it fur mommy. It weally makes her happy and we like makin’ mommy happy. Once mommy got steps fur sissy to help hers get on and off da bed, Lexi’s been luvvin’ dat pawt of ow job dat happens when mommy lays down. Now dat sissy can get down hers selff to get a dwink or go pawdee and get back on da bed by hers selff she luvs it and wewards mommy wiff a head massage evewytime she gets down and gets back up. Mowe than once mommy’s been woke up by sissy’s wumblin’ purr and massagin’ hers head. And of course mommy’s never gunna complain ‘bout dat. You know she has migwaines dat awe always just unnew da surface. So da mowe massages she gets, da mowe they stay unnew da surface.

And Lexi still likes to awgue wiff me over hoo gets to dwive da chair in da meownin’s. She’s nevew awgued wiff me ovew hoo gets to answer da fone cuz me luvved it so much. Altho’ me has finally learned da sumtimes yous just let da fone wing. Me dusn’t know zactly why yous wanna let it wing wiffout answerin’ it, but evwy once in a while dat’s what mommy duz. Anyways, weez not gunna keep ya’ today we just wanted to answer a foo questions weez been getting. Mommy always sez ifin one or two peeps awe finkin; it then it’s mowe likely than not dat there awe udders finkin’ it too. As you know weez be oppen books and welkum yous questions anytime.  But fur now weez’ll say hav a pawsum Monday.

And till da next time…………………………………Be Blest!!!

As you know it stawted out wiff Sissy goin’ to da office of torture on Monday and they made us wait all week fur da wesults. Mommy be tweatin’ sissy’s infection wiff sumfin’ naturwal till da Vet calls us back and purrscwibes sumfin’ else. A culture wuz posed to be dun on hers uwine but wiff all da incompetence weez sperienced fwum dat udder Vets office weez guessin’ they didn’t do it. So it’s pawsible dat we may hav to hav Lexi go in fur anudder uwinalysis. Mommy sure hopes not. And it’’s not just cuz of da gween papers, it’s cuz  sissy’s been poked enuff fur a bit mommy sez. So even tho’ this whole sperience wiff this udder Vet wuz pawful, weez coountin’ it as a blessin’ cuz we wuz able to finally get sissy’s wesults. And they be much better than we kuld have hoped fur.

Meowllo evewypawdy and happy Caturday. Well weez didn’t get any visitin’ dun yesfurday, and may not get much dun today eevew. And nope it wusn’t cuz we wuz out stwollin’ eevew. We finally got sis Lexi’s test wesults in da mail. And yous know what? They purrppussly sent them to da wrong addwess. Oh yes they did. And yep yous guessed it, mommy’s livid. Then on top of dat when she opened them da furst page had sissy’s urinalysis on it and It clearly shows an infection. Dat’s wight, there’s an infection. And da VET sed in da email she sent us as well as on da fone when she talked wiff mommy dat there wuz no infection whatsoevew. So sissy be havin an infection and maybe even pain and not getting’ any tweatment whatsoevew. Mommy feels just pawful dat all this be happenin’ to Lexi. Well mommy spent most of da day pourin’ ovew those wesults twyin’ to figger it all out, and postin’ ‘em to Tanya’s site so we kuld get sum help figgewin’ all this out. Weez not postin’ da wesults here as we don’t know how many of ya’ wuld care to see them or unnewstand what yous be lookin’ at. 

dw Dezi plays watercolor1219

Weez hav this new foto ap dat mommy found and well, weez kuldn’t even begin to tell ya’ what she did. Da only fing weez member is addin’ watercolor flter to a weally blurry foto.

 

 

 

Da one fing we did learn fur sure is dat sissy’s phosphorous levels dat we wuz so worried ‘bout actually be low, too low in fact. You know what dat means? She can hav any food she wants and as much of it as she wants. Well gotta tell ya’ dat makes sissy happy. Or at least it will when she figgers it out. She just tried a food dat she luvs, luvs, luvs. It’s callled Soulistic Tri-Fusion Tuna wiff Salmon, beef and duck in gravy. Moommy set da plate down and walked into da livin’ room and set meez plate down and walked back to da kitchen to get hers cup of coffee, and sissy’s plate wuz licked clean. Yep, empty, evewyfin’ wuz gone and sissy wuz smackin’ hers lips. And this is a food dat wuz borderline fur her ifin she needed to lower hers phosphorous levels, but now dat she dusn’t have to worry ‘bout dat she kuld have this all day long.

Again wiff da new foto editor. Da only fing we member is addin’ da vignette. And yes, dat be da place they dwu sis lexi’s blood fwum.

Hers got to check on sum supplements dat be wecommended fur all CRF/CKD kitties like B-12, and figger out what to do ‘bout sissy’s infection. So it may be a busy day on da fone/puter/road fur mommy.

Visual Associations

Meowllo evewypawdy, awe ya’ weady fur da weekend? Cuz It’s Here!!! WooHoo And weez posed to get sum purretty wedder wiff sum sunshine. Dat means…weez gunna go fur a stwoll. Me can’t wait to get out in da sunshine and smell da outside. Okay meez purrawlly gunna stawt sneezin’ a bit but it’ll be fun afur dat happens. MOL Now afur me goes any furder me wants to wemind you alll dat evewy week we join up wiff Rascal and Rocco’s Pet Pawade Blog Hop. And this week weez also joinin’ Create wiff Joy’s Furiday Furiendship Blog Pawty. Go on click da linky’s they’ll open in a new window so yous won’t furget to go visit when ya’ finish up here. Just don’t you be leavin’ afur leavin’ me a comment. Yous know how much we luv hearin’ fwum ya’. Yeah meez feelin’ a little spunky today.

 dw Dezi treetop3963

Anyways, wecently sissy posted da horror dat wuz hers VET visit and we actually got a foo comments dat took mommy way back. So we fawt we wuld quickly give you ow take on dat subject. As you know mommy went back wiff Lexi to have hers blood work and uwinalysis. And as you know it didn’t go well. Altho’ da techs didn’t want mommy to come, they allowed it. Now we know why they didn’t want her there. But twuff is, VETs used to tell peeps to let da tech hold their animal or take the animal out of da room fur all shots and tweatments and tests. They wuld telll peeps dat it wuz to keep yous pet fwum associatin’ bad fings wiff you, their hooman. How many of you have heard dat? Purrawlly most of ya’.

 dw Lexi lap3949

Da one we like is, “your pet does so much better without you there.” Ya’ wanna know why? It’s cuz ifin yous not there to speak up and purrtect yous pet, they can do whatever they want or feel they need to in order to make yous pet comply. Da only time dat sayin’ be twu is ifin yous one to fweak out at da sight of blood, needles, or da sound or sight of yous pet squirmin, fightin’ or yelpin’/mewin’. As fur yous pet associatin’ you wiff da bad ifin yous purresent, dat’s just not twu. And ifin these fotos of Lexi don’t purrove It to ya’, well then keep sendin’ yous baby off wiff da tech. Dat’s okay and nopawdy be judgin’ ya’ least of all us. It took evewyfin’ mommy had to maintain her cool and not lose it or jump all ovew those girlies at sissy’s pointment. And twust us, they haven’t heard da last fwum mommy. We just wanted you to know dat yous not have to believe dat myth anymore. We also say no matter how well you like and twust yous VET it nevew hurts to be purresent at least once in a while. Ifin fur no udder weason than to keep them on their toes. We also wanna fank all of ya’ dat be wecommendin’ Tanya’s CRF site to us. Weez awe alweady aware of da site and dat’s da suppowt gwoup we wuz talkin’ ‘bout.   

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Now today be shoppin’ wound da world wiff Bacon and Fozziemum. Twuff is mommy hasn’t bought gwocewies in quite sum time, so weez gunna give ya’ da purrices we found in da local stowre here. Which by da way now has a new owner. They purrawmissed lower purrices, but most peeps be complainin’ dat they waised da purrices. We didn’t find dat to be da case, but it’s not owned by a local anymowe and in a town this size, dat be enuff to cause peeps not to like anyfin’ ‘bout it. Anyways, on wiff da shoppin’ list.

Da furst item up is Milk. A gallon of da off/stowre bwand at da Dollaw Genewal be $4.65 and .10 cents mowe at Fwamily Dollaw and da gwocewy.

Da next item is tomatoes. Romas wuz on sale this week and da only ones da stowre had in stock. They wuz .79 cents a pound We don’t know how many dat wuld get ya’ as there’s no scale at da gwocewy store. So yous kinda take yous chances on by da pound stuffs.  

Da next item…a canned purroduct. Da stowre bwand of corn, gween beans, peas, etc. be $1.29.  

Then Bacon asked fur a Random item and a homemade dish. Mommy dusn’t make much these days, but she checked da purrices fur a one of hers favowit meals fwum her yunger days when she worked and had munny. She luvved a good ole steak dinner. So, da NY stwip(small) wuz: $11.69, da Filet wuz: $12.58. A nice size bakin’ potato wuz: $2.00. Butter be $4.25 fur a pound and mommy weally likes da butter so fur a nice big tater she wuld need at least a 1/2 stick so ‘bout .60 cents fur butter and she likes cheese on hers tater. Hers favowit cheese is Cabot Sharp cheddar at $9.75 fur 2 lbs. so it wuld cost ‘bout $1.21 fur cheese. And she ‘cided a package of dinner rolls wuld be cheaper than makin’ ‘em herselff, so they wuld cost $1.89 fur da stowre bwand. This be way too much munny so mommy didn’t add in a salad or any udder sides. So a homemade dinner wuld cost $17.39 to $18.28.  OMC dat’s one meal. No wunnew mommy dusn’t buy gwocewies.

 Pet Parade banner newFriendship-Friday-Button-1501Create With Joy

Anyways, ow random item wuz low phosphorous cat food. Da Solistic bwand 3 ounce packet wuz $1.29. Well so there it is, anudder wound of Shoppin’ wound da world wiff Bacon and Fozziemum. We can’t wait to see what evewypawdy else is payin’.

Till da next time……………………….Be Blest!!!
