Monday morning vet visit

 Hello all.  It's me again.  I get to host this blog today because I had to go to the vet's office again for my antibiotic.   Guess what?   This morning the vet, Dr. B., told Mom that not only did I have a ruptured abscess BUT I had a urinary tract infection.  This means Mom gets to trot me off to the vet for two more Mondays.
 Here is one of our kitty carriers.   Mom is now trying to take a cab instead of walking us to the vet.  It costs more but she thinks it might be less stressful!
Speaking of stress.   Here are some ways Mom has been trying to unwind the last little bit.
 She took this photo a few years ago at a cabin.   She says there is nothing like a cool, crisp autumn day to enjoy a crackling fire and a mug of warm tea.   See those cookies?  The lady who owned the cabin baked them just for Mom her family. 
 She also splurged on a pedicure.   Mom says she doesn't know why but seeing her toenails swished with color makes her happy.  She chose the pale blue color just because she is a wild woman!  (snort!)
 Finally, to close, we are showing Winston's tummy fur before his summer shave.  Gosh, look at all that fur.   Don't think you can pet him, though, he'll turn on you faster than a grumpy bear with a honey pot.

Here is Emily.   Mom loves this photo. Emily is yawning but Mom thought it showed Emily's scary kitty side.   It's very important to make your feline feel like there are fierce!
We want everyone out there to have a lovely week!
Oscar kitty signing off for now!

    1. Hello LP,
      Yes, Mama is worried. She is giving me my medicine and making sure extra foods is left out at all times. I had lost weight but, in less than a week, I have gained half a pound. Thank you for your crossed paws. Mama says between the thyroid thing, the abscess and now the infection, we have had more than our fair share of challenges. Purrs to you all.
      Signed,
      the Oscar kitty
      PS--You humans are so cute. I'll never understand why you like color on your tootsies!

  4. Poor Oscar! We have had a few abscesses around here too (TJ's biting mouth is a SEWER) and they do make you feel sick! And a UTI on top of it all? Dood...you have 13 HUGE purrs coming your way!

  6. Thanks, Mr Puddy,
    Oscar appreciates your purrs.
    Winston says he would lure your Mom in and wait before he smacked her with his paw.
    Emily is cheering cause she is "da boss"
    Take good care!

  8. poor baby! Hoping you feel better soon! The carrier is quite stylish but does it have enough windows to look out of? I am thinking a cab might be a good idea.

  9. Thanks for the get well wishes, Caren and Cody. There is actually a mesh window with a flap on the front end. In the back end there are 4 air holes. If one of the kitty brats is nervous about being in the carrier they will actually have their butt end to the mesh window. I liken it to closing my eyes when I'm going on a roller coaster.

  10. Oh, we are so sorry sweet Oscar that you are not doing so well and have to make two more trips to the vet. Wow, sweet Winston you do have a nice fluffy tummy but we think we will pass on touching it although it sure looks inviting. Sweet Emily you have a nice looking fluffy tummy too, do you let anyone rub or pat it? We love your sweet little yawn. Hugs and nose kisses and we send extra feel better hugs for Oscar.
