Kitties are very good at supervision.

Groan...Mia is sick again. We took her to the vet and she has another UTI. Once again, confined to the basement until she gets better. Dr. gave her 2 shots and we go back in 2 weeks. This is really pushing my wife and I but we love her so much. 2016 can't end soon enough!

I'm really sorry to hear about Mia, I'll say a prayer for her

I agree, 2016 can't end on a sour note, I'm keeping faith

She's doing much better but she's having trouble keeping food down. She's thrown up several times in the past few weeks. We think it is, due to her history of not knowing when she would eat next, she is scarfing down food at times and her body isn't dealing with it. We cut back on her kibble and are giving her small portions of soft food 2x a day to keep her hydrated and food in her. She is drinking better though. She played a good amount today and is now bonked out in my wife's chair.

Ah, she is much better behaved than our cats. She is quietly resting under the tree rather than up in it taking things off ! And backtalking when you call them on it !

Her middle name is "Handful", but I wouldn't trade her for a mint condition 1957 Porsche speedster! She slept at my feet all of last night, came down for breakfast then came right back up! She's one of the few good things that happened for us in 2016.

So you have been mispelling her first name. It is supposed to be Ima ?

Good one Jon! We joked that Mia was actually M.I.A. As she is always somewhere around the house but we can't find her. She blends in very well!

This time of year finding the kitties is not much problem.Outside times seem to be pretty short. They spend most of their time in the sun room at the back of the house, in the garage (where their food and litter boxes are) or in the living room in front of the wood stove.

Glad to hear Mia is doing good

Here's a couple pics of Bubbaz, those aren't my legs, if they were my skin would be hanging over the socks from all the swelling





Here she is just before winter, she was acting crazy trying to rub her back on the ground while crawling, prolly why the camera wouldn't focus

That she is, I just wish I could find the pic I took of her a few weeks ago when she was just standing still on all 4's, she looked like her body's circumference was almost 20"

Last weekend Trina my wife, took our grand daughters to the dollar store & bought the oldest one of those laser lights, I tried getting a video of Bubbaz chasing it around, but after about a minute of chasing it a few feet, or up the wall 18 inches or so, she will just lays down & only reach for it the length she can stretch her legs, I tell them to keep it close to her or she will just watch it move with her head, then when it does get close she makes a quick reach with her paw but won't get up to run after it like a young cat will, they'll catch on one day

Reminds me of something I hafta tell our youngest grand daughter all the time, she's almost 7, I always tell her when we walk "slow down, papa's slow", same with when she talks to fast, I say "papa's ears are slow too, talk slower" same with my eyes, "look papa look" "slow down girl, papa's eyes are slow too"
I've been called grandpa by my friends since I was 18, then at 19 when I got crushed at work it really slowed me down, my friends would always say "hold on, we gotta wait for grandpa" I was fine with it, then once when Trina was out with us all she walked slow with me, not because she was slow, well my friends made the mistake of saying "hold on, we gotta wait for grandpa & grandma" she's 2 years younger than me & I tell ya, they never made that mistake again, she's fast, she'd slap em all up the side of their heads so fast they could say sorry fast enough
Now I'm real slow, well except for talking, I can talk myself out of breath if I've been left alone long enough, I could go on about it, but I'm starting to lose my breath from typing

I'd give her scratches and noms!
Mia had no idea what we were doing in the living room today. (Taking down the tree) but she's starting to like tissue paper. Our old girl, Samantha, loved the stuff. Mia just wants her ribbon and white and green toy mice.
