Good Mews!

Thank you so much for all the prayers, purrs and well wishes sent for my dad, Sir Moose-a-lot's daddy. The blockage is gone! He's been moved out of ICU and is in the rehab part of the hospital. They are already starting physical therapy and he has better movement in his legs and feet every day. They think he might be in for about four weeks but all he's worried about is being able to stand, walk, and play golf again! And of course, be Moosey's best sleeping lap I'm sure!

It's no fun being without my favorite lap! Hurry home daddy!



Star and Leo have been pretty good. In some ways it's been nice sleeping with both of my kitties. In another way, it's been pretty warm! They're staying as far from each other as they can, meaning Leo on my feet, heating those up, and Star practically under my chin, blocking any fan air from getting to my face! I've been breathing so much cat fur that I'm about to toss my own hairball!

I've also caught them almost playing together! Star gets in the open window and will use the screen to sharpen her claws. This draws Leo's attention and he comes up over the chair to peek at her. She jumps out and chases him! No hissing, no growling! And then he'll chase her back a few paces then they break and run their separate ways!

I CANNOT forget to tell you about Star and a special visitor! Star hates company, HATES it. Strangers make her run! Leo too. He might stick around long enough to see who it is, but then he runs off and hides. My dear cousin P came over. She has recently become a cat person after being a doggie person forever! She came to pick up a set of Winnie's Wish toys for her new kitty, Lucky!

Star was in the window behind the chair P was sitting in. This flipped her out so she ran out. Then decided that was the safest spot and ran back in. As we sat talking, Star crept out of the window and sat on the table next to P. I was sure as soon as she reached over to pet her, Star would bolt!

Instead, she leaned into her hand and begged for more pets! She was making a spectacle of herself! Rolling her head, leaning in, rubbing on her hand when she didn't pet fast enough! She did everything but roll over and beg for tummy rubs! Cousin P is one of few people Star has made friends with, how cool is that?!

And Leo? He made an entrance too! He ran back and forth through the room, mostly as exactly far away from the company as possible, but he was out! P picked up his red stringy and tried to tease him into coming closer. He gave it a few whaps, but kept out of reach the whole time, little brat boy! But at least Star gave her a stamp of approval!


Leo: Yeah, I know Star seemed to like the peoples, but I have to be more cautious just in case Princess Hissyface is trying to draw me into a false sense of security, then WHAM! Some stranger picks me up! *shudder*
 
 
 

Star: Go ahead and say I'm getting soft in my old age, whatever. She was a good petter. That's all that really matters, right?


Continued purrs for my, and Moosey's, dad are appreciated!

So happy to hear the good news! Sir Moose-a-lot will have good lap times soon, we hope!

Star, I am SOOOOOOOO impressed! I have NEVER allowed an introodur--even introodurs I sort of like--to TOUCH me. ::shudder:: nonononononononononononono!!! Look at me, okay. Talk to me? Maybe, if I have given you the Spitty Seal of Approval. Touch me?? Not if you value your fingers!

I'll be over later to wrap my manly ebony furry arms about you, darling--and you can give your mommy a break from inhaling your furz.

Sparkle said...

I think Star just knew a good petter when she saw one! I'm glad to hear your dad's blockage is gone!

Pawesome news that your and Moosie's Dad is into rehab. We're sure that he'll be back with Moosie on his lap in no time at all.

And way to go with both Star and Leo sleeping on the bed with you. The two of them sure have come a long way, haven't they?

The Island Cats said...

Star, we're really impressed that you made friends with another human. We don't make friends with strangers that easily. :)

And we're purring for Mooseys' dad and hope he continues to improve!

Texas, a Cat in... Austin said...

I have been missing so much, I didn't know about your Dad. I am sending him purrs!

Bellen said...

Excellent news about your dad. Everyone there must be so pleased.

Maybe the good news has influenced Star. It's taken a while, but maybe she's realising that there's an advantage or two to having a feline roommate.

Kitties Blue said...

Wow Star, are you getting soft or what? We think you are right that petting is good wherever you can find it, but we are still suspicious of strangers and their intentions. Good for you for being brave. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Glad to hear another good news. I hope they'll keep comin'

Katnip Lounge said...

We are so happy for your Dad!! My Mom used to go to a chiro that would press her "poop nerve" (his term) and sure enough, she'd have to...well...you know.

We have some company irresistible to kitties, too--our neighbor Gisela draws 'em out in DROVES.

Cathy Keisha said...

The healing purrz will continue. I shocked though that his first thought wasn't to come home so Sir Moose-a-lot gets his lap back. Humans don't need to do that other suff except when it comes to walking to the kitchen to open our fuds.

Tails from the Foster Kittens said...

Wow, such improvement on all fronts with those two!

Colehaus Cats said...

Yippee for making new friends! Star, we're so proud of you! Purrs...

meowmeowmans said...

Mom Andrea - Our new kitties Zoe and Gracie LOVE the nip butterfly you made. Especially Zoe -- we will try to get a video of her pouncing on it and playing.

Hugs!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Hope Dad is continuing to improve.

Star, Darling, I have instructed my Human to give you all the brushies you could wish for when you come over. You can even use my special pinkie brush. Why don't you bring your butterfly blankie?
