Neglected Winston and a Vet Visit and Miss Truffle Butts

 Good Monday morning all.   It is another hot, humid day where we live.   I think us felines should maybe rest a bit more than usual because of the weather.   I also wanted to relate that I am not a happy boy.  This morning, bright and early, Mom took Oscar AND Emily to see the vet.  
 Emily had an unfortunate grooming malfunction near her floofy posterior area.   It was most unpleasant for all of us.   Mom tried to help her but decided a bit of discrete grooming by the vet was in order to prevent another such crisis from occurring again.
 Oscar has another urinary tract infection and needs a weekly antibiotic.   He also needed to have his thyroid medication intake increased.  He has lost some weight and his heart beat, though still within normal parameters, is a bit too fast.   Dr. B. also gave him some kitty gravol, cerenia, to help him out.   Oscar was not happy...but the vet tried to buy him off with a new catnip toy.   HA!  I confiscated that toy for my own personal use the moment I laid my big blue eyes on that tasty morsel.
 Doesn't Emily look happy here.   Perhaps she enjoys the extra breeze on her newly groomed hiney!   Mom gave her yet another new ridiculous nickname to commemorate the event: truffle butt!

The human needs a feline intervention

Purrs to all on this very hot and humid Saturday.  Our Mom is having a day...well it's actually been several days.   We felines try to take things in stride but, in spite of our  cool, Zen-like nonchalance, she hasn't picked up any of our coping habits.  Well, then, this is for you Mom.
 Tee hee...purrmeow...if you do find her marbles she would very much like them back.
Come on, Mom, get with the program.  It's Winston now.  Do I let life get to me when things get all wonky and it's just one thing after another...NO!  You need to chill, woman!
 Maybe a nice chuckle will help.  Or a nap.   Or some chocolate.  It's too hot to cuddle, Mom, bleh! It feels like 106 F with the humidity.  Our beautiful furs will just stick to you.

Fresh as a daisy

Good morning.   Oscar here to tell you that I got a spa day last week!   I'm having some trouble bathing and Mom and the vet decided I should have a little help.  They also insinuated that I might be smelling a bit unpleasant-well-how insulting!   Anyway, my favorite part of the entire experience was the warm rinse shower and the wonderful fluffy heat saturated towels to dry me.   Mmmmm...heat for me me.   My claws were also clipped.   I have to admit I felt a bit perkier after the entire experience and Mom kept exclaiming how fresh I smelled.
