Another episode and technicians and head bopping


Good morning.   Can you see me?   Mom couldn't find me either.  It's me...Emily hiding under the chair.   I love this new hiding spot.   Anyway I'm here to tell you what we have been up too.   I've included some funnies this week because, quite frankly, our Mom is in a bit of a tizzy.  Her internet service was done for several days.   She feels quite lost without it.  

So I reminded her of feline healing powers with the above cartoon!   She liked that one.  So did we of course.   But she still wanted the internet back.  Thankfully, after half a week some technician came to rectify the matter.
This is me and Winston sniffing the toolbox to make sure everything meets with our approval.   We gave it a very thorough going over before we decided everything was O.K.   I would like to add that Mom was quite rude to me!  She said in a yell-y kind of a voice "Emily, STOP chewing those wires!"  Can you believe her?   I'm only inspecting everything.   Hmph.   Anyway, the technician was quite smitten with the Winston.  He kept scratching Winston's ears and saying how fluffy he was.  Personally, I think Winston was being a show off.

This leads to my next cartoon.    Mom thought this was funny.  I failed once again to see the humor.  The Mom will never learn her proper place I think.  It's a long, uphill battle my fellow felines.
I didn't want to be too hard on her, though, as she is worried about Oscar.  He had another spell on Friday and Mom called a cab to take him to the vet.  The vet gave Oscar some fluids and cerenia...again.   The Oscar kitty keeps staying too long in the sun and then it becomes too much for him.   Even though Mom was checking on him that day on a regular basis it was still a bit of a situation.   This photo of Oscar is him following around the Mom.   He has started to follow her even though his back leg is so achy.  Mom thinks it's sweet and tries to give him extra ear scritches.
Also-in an attempt to keep Oscar away from our 2 huge windows (that start at the floor and are slightly taller than the Mom--about 5'9) Mom has barricaded them with footstools and books and even our kitty condo.    She is fretting he will still manage to get there and over heat.   She joked to me that she felt like she was preparing for the zombie apocalypse. 
Once again I refer her to this.......

I'm a head bopper myself!   Mom says I'm the first kitty who does this to her...in fact I like to bop her several times in a row and finish with a soft tail swish!
Keep your humans happy felines!
Humans give those felines extra lovings!
Purrs for an awesome week.
Emily

  1. We take it your mom isn't able to have any kind of shade for the windows? Black out curtains or blinds of some sort? Or do you mean Oscar goes in behind, into the window, and over-heats then? Those are pretty tall windows you have. Except for our patio door (and we face north), all our windows are pretty small.

    Anyway, as far as your inspection of the internet guy's tools...well done to both of you! Of course you had to ensure he had the right equipment with him. We hope the issue is resolved now. And that the company gives your mom a credit for the down time. (Our biped would be kicking up a fuss about that.)

    Purrs and peace.

    1. Good morning Fuzzy Tales....there are light blocking liners and vertical blinds. Oscar likes to cozy in between the window and the blinds and liners. We (Winston and I) know when to get out before we get too toasty. Because Oscar is frail and has some feline dementia we don't think he always knows when too much is just that...too much.
      Yes, the internet issue is resolved for now. Mom is behind on catching up. We think the credit for the down time is a great idea!

  2. Nothing wrong with chewing wires...if you don't mind a very curly perm, Miss!
    Hope Oscar is OK...you don't want the neighbours thinking that you Mum is a hoarder and has so much stuff that it's pressing against the windows!!

    1. Well, I think you are a very nice lady but you are like the Mom. She says chewing wires is naughty. *sigh* I am so misunderstood!
      When Mum read the thing about hoarding she gave a moan and looked dejected...I thought it was slightly amusing! We felines hoard all our kitty toys under the stove, fridge and sofa. Anything the Mum can't easily move.
      Purrs,
      Emily
      PS-from the Mum-I checked the windows on the way to work and it's actually not bad. The books, footstools etc are in front of the blinds and lining....hopefully it will keep out Oscar. The little guy is going to give me a heart ache....
      take good care. I hope you are feeling better.

    2. Glad the neighbours won't be concerned!! The Maple Syrup Mob are hoarders too!

  3. Oh Oscar! You may have to build a brick wall to keep him away from those windows! What would the neighbors think then? LOL! Emily, the trick is to NOT chew any wires that may be plugged in! Yikes, little one, it's just best that you don't do it at all...go bite your brother instead, okay?

  4. Poor Oscar (and poor you). I feel so bad. It is natural for a kitty to navigate towards the sun and poor Oscar that it isn't good for him. That makes me sad. xoxo

    1. Hi Caren-The heat from the afternoon sun overcomes him and because he is frail already and, the vet thinks, suffering from dementia, he doesn't know enough to leave. I try to compensate with heated pads and the heated cat bed but it's definitely not the same as the golden sun beams. Thanks for your visit.

  6. We like to keep an eye on workmen as well, just to make sure they are doing everything right. We are sending hugs and licks to Oscar and our Mummy sends a big cuddle as well.

    Love from
    Poppy, Lily, Daisy and Tabikat xxxx
