Thankful Thursday, Update Edition: Cashmere and Piper

I have updates!

First, Cashmere is doing great! After one day of taking her new pills everything was flowing freely again! She still doesn't like the pills, but she's not running from us. We give the pill right before Snackin' Time, which is her favorite time of day, so she sticks around. As soon as we get the pill down her throat and put her down, she's rubbing on legs and acting all lovey and looking for her snack.

We looked for the pill paste/pill-doh/pill disguiser stuff but they must not carry it anywhere around here because we cannot find it. Also not finding any pill pockets that are not greenies.. I do thank you all for your suggestions! I will have to look for the pill disguiser stuff on line more, but for now, she's actually not being that bad about just taking it, surprise surprise!

Cashmere: I'm not happy with you people.. but as long as the snacks keep coming, I'll put up with your pill nonsense.

And now Piper!
Piper is the kitty my mom adopted from the place the Random Felines mom fosters for that we brought back to her from Columbus.

She's doing so well! She still runs when someone comes into the house, but she comes back out most of the time. She's a cautious girl!

Mom sent more pictures!

Piper: Hi hi! This my spot. MINE! I own it!

This is where they put the towel I laid on for the whole trip home, my scent soaker they called it. I don't need the towel any more to tell me that this is my spot, I just know now!

See, it's right where my mom can scratch my head. ooooo yeah, that's the spot! Thank Cod she has good nails for the scritchin'!

I like to lean right up against my mom now. I press in hard and she knows I'm here for the scritchin'! Oooo I'm a very happy kitty when I get my head scritched..

Look what I discovered! HUGE cat TV! It's AWESOME! Come closer, I'll show ya.

See what I see? Bird feeders! Lots of them! And lots of birdies come to visit every day!

Here's a peek at some of my view. Do you see them all? Gold finches and wood peckers and ... well, mom knows most of the names, I just call them Crunchies! hee hee!

Oh. My. COD! This, THIS, is my most recent discovery! FISHIES! And turtles too! Do you remember when I was at the Colony Cats and they was tryin' to pick me up and I was lookin' at the fishy tank there? Well who knew I'd have one HERE! And I didn't even notice! Not until one day one of the turtles started smackin' the top of the water and splashin' and making a big ruckus. Then I HAD to see! I stood up and put my paws on the tank that day. But now I know there's this chair here just for me to fish watch from!

*Happy sigh* I could lay here all day. But I'm also trying to figure out how to catch me one of them fishies. Not the turtles though.. they don't look appetizing. But fishies.. I'm very fond of the fishies!

We are so very thankful that Cashmere is feeling better and doing better with the pills. And we are very thankful that Piper is just loving her new home!


I have a request of you, my dear friends! Would you help find a great home for a very friendly kitty named Sunspot? She's so desperate for a family of her own, a place with no other kitties.. She's a Winnie's Wisher who just does not like other kitties, but loves loves loves humans! Do you know anyone, friend or family or coworker, or friend of a friend, who would like a loving furry family member? Please please send them to Daily Dose, to Chrystal, so Sunspot can have the forever she longs for!

Read more about Sunspot HERE

Contact Chrystal to adopt! (, kitties can be transported across the country and even into Canada!
