Conversations with Cricket and Toeshee

Cricket and Toeshee Chat

"Toeshee, are you pondering what I'm pondering?"

"Um, yea Cricket. It would be great to be able to open our own cat food cans!"

"No! You dufus! I was wondering if we were going to be able to get back on a regular blogging schedule now that Momma is less hurty with her teeth."

"Oh, that would be nice. I was thinking that it would be a good idea to put more Party Mix on the grocery list. But I can't use this pen very well. It's fun to knock off the table though."

"I swear you must have floof for brains, Toeshee. Is that all you think about; eating and playing? There are other things. Intruder cats outside, spreading the joys of naughtiness and world cat domination and other important stuff. I'm glad Momma has at least one smart cat living here!"

"Who? Billie? Cody caught a mouse, so I guess he's pretty smart."

"Me! I'm the smartest one! Me, Cricket! Floof for brains!"

"That reminds me, I need to groom now."

I think I've had enough conversation with him for now. We will try to keep our Momma back on a blogging and visiting schedule now.
Be naughty kitties!

I'm starting to feel better. I can finally chew! Go me! Not much has changed around here. The kitties are all doing well, the house needs to be cleaned and the weather has more mood swings than a teenager. It's getting cooler and breezy and I think Mr. Sun is going to stay somewhere else for a few days. Time to do housework inside for a while I guess.
I will be visiting everyone now that I can form coherant sentences. :)
Lots of Hugs and Purrs from us!~

Nurse Kitties

Hello, Cricket here with an update, lest you think we have fallen off the planet.
We are doing our best to bring comfort to our Momma Lorianna. She has had a rough few days. The jaw pain is TMJ due to a misaligned bite and from the RA nom noming the joint. She will need surgery sometime in the next few months to fix it. She thought for sure the hip would be first!
She also will be getting a root canal tomorrow. Her RA medicine made the infection in her gum bloom up really fast. RA can cause dry mouth and that isn't good for teeth. She is now using a special mouth rinse. The dentist gave her antibiotics and Valium. She likes the Valium. ;) silly Momma! She got sick with the Vicodeine, so no more of that!
She is in a lot of hurty right now and thinks that after the root canal she just wants to sit in the sun and stare off into space like a cat. She is so tired of feeling bad. She has been crying a little bit, but only in front of us kitties, because we understand.
As you can see we offer her much comfort. She is quite loopy as she types this for us, so she thinks I should wrap this up.

We Love you, our friends. We miss you. Purr for Momma so she can feel better soon. We pray none of you ever have to feel this lousy!

Lots of hugs!
Us kitties and Lorianna

Garden Cat Cody

Cody Takes a Garden Tour

Hey everyone! Cody, master gardening cat here to show the latest plants that are blooming in our back yard. Momma takes me out with her on nice days and I help her with the plants. I inspect them and help pull weeds. I am quite pleased with the new pot of cat nip!
The red Dalia and orange Lantana look nice together. Momma likes the clover shaped Oxalis with the little white flowers. She likes her Iris "Jellybean" too.
Orange and pur
Italicple are our favorite colors and the little fairy named Periwinkle watches over the flowers.

Of course Momma says I'm prettier than all the flowers in the garden.
Momma, I'm a Mancat! I'm handsome, not pretty!

She is worried about me as I get older. I am somewhere between 14 and 15 and I have lost a little weight. She wants me to go to the V E T for a checkup, but the Daddyman says there is no need. My appetite is pretty good and I still have energy. He thinks it's normal for cats to loose a little weight as they age.
I personally am not worried, but Momma of course is watching me like a mother hen.

Her jaw and teeth have been very hurty for the past few days, so she is calling her dentist to see if he can see what's wrong. She thinks her RA medicine is affecting her gums somehow, but her jaw is clicking so loud us kitties can hear it when she yawns.
Poor worry filled, mother hen Momma. I think she needs another sunny day with me outside!

We hope you all have warm sunny days ahead. (Well, Miss Peach's Mommy doesn't like it too warm, so not too hot for her.) We will keep Mickey in our thoughts as he has his teeth fixed up too.

Big Purrs! ~ Cody Mac Boldly

Down With The Cuteness

Pay Attention To Meee!

When I want the Daddyman's attention I mean business! How can he think his laptop is more interesting than my floofy tail? Momma says the only thing that will pull him away from the laptop is dinner. Dinner works for me too, 'specially if it's chick-hen!

Come on Daddy, play fetch with me! (he usually gives in to my cuteness and does play with me eventually) Get up and "get down with the cuteness" Daddy!

We hope you all have a super fun weekend! Momma will be doing her best to visit you all.

hugs and cuteness! Toeshee Maru^..^ (Maru is my middle name)

Billie and the Flooof Thief

Billie and the floof thief

See this purple comb? It steals some of my floof every time Momma uses it on me! She likes it because it is smooth and gentle and she combs me very carefully with it. Momma says the comb is not stealing my floof, I'm just losing a lot because it is late spring. I still do not trust this comb or any other grooming utensil for that matter!
It is not as warm as it should be here. The teenagergirl just came back inside all grumpy because it wasn't warm and sunny enough to sit outside and read.
She complained to Momma for like, five minutes! Momma has a headache now... :)
I am going to spend the rest of the afternoon napping in the blue chair.
I hope everyone is having a happy day! Hugs!

(See Praline? It was my turn! Yay!)

Looking For Our Lost Week

Looking For Our Lost Week.

Hello efurrybody! Us kitties are taking over this blog! Momma has been sleeping curled up in a ball off and on for the past week. She gets up when she's feeling a bit better and feeds us. She has not been doing much of anything else. She thinks her new tummy medicine is starting to work a little bit. She is only eating cereal and toast just to be safe. Toeshee likes the milk she leaves in her bowl for him.

Toeshee: It's delicious! I love milk!

It gives you gas!

No it doesn't Cricket! Be nice!

Whatever! I don't have to be anything, but who I am and I'm Cricket the Naughty Noodle! Hey, this blog take over is pretty fun!

Lorianna here: I have missed an entire week of blogging and visiting. My doctor's office called and scheduled me for a complete physical. So maybe I will end up taking something for my anxiety...? I think I will be on the Prevacid for a while. I have had to cut back on coffee too. :(

I am thinking of just letting the kitties blog from their point of view. I have not had anything interesting to say for some time and they are much more entertaining.

Cricket: Well duh, Momma! Don't worry we will handle everything!

Okay Cricket, just make sure the other kitties have a turn.
(she can be a bit of a diva sometimes)

So, they will blog and I will try to get back on track with visiting.

Hugs from us!

Take Time to Hug a Kitty and Smell the Flowers

Too busy! Too Tired!

Hi, it's Billie and Cody here to give an overdue update.

The Teenagergirl graduated from High School. She has been rather irritable since then. Momma calls it growing pains, but she looks all grown to us, so we don't get it.

Momma is getting a hole in her tummy. She says it's an ulcer. She is taking medicine to block acids from making it more hurty. If that doesn't help she may need to get it patched up. That does not sound fun at all to us! She hasn't been feeling well for a while and still needs to nap a lot like a kitty. Her special medicine for her hurty joints doesn't go through her tummy because she pokes herself with a needle for that. It is probably from all her pain medication and all of her silly worrying.

We are doing our best to take care of her. We sit on her lap and purr and eat our food without complaining. She has been very frustrated with feeling so icky sicky all the time. We have all been feeling pretty frisky and healthy and we know that helps with her worries. She hopes her bloggie friends are not disapointed that she has not been by. She promises to be a good girl and take her medicine and rest so she can feel better enough to visit and blog more often.

Lorianna here: I knew something was wrong with my stomach. I had this burning sensation in my upper adomen and I have been so queasy. My PC Doctor put me on Prevacid and I really need to lay off the Ibuprofin and asprin. We will just have to see how it goes. She discussed an antidepressant and perhaps some counseling, but I just am not ready for that. I'm not saying I don't need it. I'm just not sure if it's something I can deal with. I think I just need to stop worrying and letting everything upset me. I think my doctor is ready to give up on me. :) She has brought this up before and I took a pass. No more medicine please! I'm starting to rattle...

Billie and Cody here again: We will make sure to keep Momma cheered up! Cricket will keep her in bed later in the mornings so she can get some rest. Once Cricket is on you, there is no moving until she says so!

Hugs from us all!
