from your very own SHERKHAN

March 18, 2009 at 12:37 am (cat behavior, cat chat) (, , , , , , , )

I am back from my cat-boarding, did you miss me? I bet you did!

Annnywaaay…. there has been some changes at my home in the last few days…:

1. Papa can now see me a bit (I think). He hugs and cuddles me, but does not let me get too close to his eyes. I think his eyes still hurt.

2. Mama is at work all day and then when she comes back- she is still very busy. She says she would stay home all day to take care of Papa and me, if only she did not need the money. I think by money, she means Whiskas Kitten Pouches that I love so much. She still makes time to cuddle and play with me, but she complains about her backache, I think it hurts her- and her lack of sleep… and she does a lot of cleaning. I think that’s because Papa can get in-fec-tion if the house has germs- and cleaning kills germs. Hmm.

3. I am not allowed on Mama-Papa’s sleeping place even for a second now. I think it’s because I shred a lot and if my furs go into Papa’s eyes he will be in a lot of pain.

4. I made friends with the Ren-Human. I think she is Mama-Papa’s friend and she helps Papa put in his eyedrops when Mama is at work. She is nice and cushy, the Ren-Human… and gives good cuddles. She gives me good company through the day.

5. I have been a good boy in my boarding, but I was very scared on the day I was brought back home in that big boarding bus because there was a ‘woofie’ in the car who was also being brought-ed in the same bus. I pee-pee’d in my carriage and then had to go to a groomer for a thorough clean up, because pee-pees may cause infection in Papa’s eyes.

6. I am now almost 5 months old and I have my last dose of FIV vaccination soon. I think that will help me not falling sick when I go out- but it makes no sense to me how that will happen. How can a needle prick help you not falling sick?

Okay. This is my quick update. And now that I have caught up somewhat, I’ll do my regular posts from time to time when Mama is not so busy. Till then.. 🙂

the vet and more on orange flames…

February 17, 2009 at 12:24 am (cat treatments) (, , , , , , , , , )

mama took me to the v-e-t yesterday. this vet that i go to, his office is far from our home- but mama still takes me there because she says i have a ‘rappo’ with him. i guess she is right. the other ‘orange tabby fur (insert my maussie for the human readers: ginger haired)’ vet near our place does not talk to me like i am a person, he just talks to mama… but this ‘black fur’ (insert by maussie for the human readers: black haired) human who calls me ‘little sherkhan’ and actually talks to me like mama and papa does! i am surprised some humans think cats do not ‘get’ it when they speak to them! humans are so silly! meow!

anyway, it wasn’t nice when the black fur vet poked a sharp pointy thing inside my skin though. it pricked me! but he gave me a good massage after that so i got okay! mama told me it was called an ‘in-jec-tion’ and it will help me ‘not’ falling sick as days go by. oh well… i’m not sure why a prick on my skin will help me in any way- but what can you do when humans make you do things…. besides, i’m sure that was why i felt so crappy the rest of the day. mew. I napped through the evening!

you know about the orange flames (insert by maussie for the human readers: fire) that are eating up our forests (insert by maussie for the human readers: melbourne bushfire)? those orange flames made the whole city very smokey. mama and i both had a headache yesterday because we breathed the smoke in when we went to the vet, but mama thinks we should not complain much- lots of humans, cats, woofies, koalas and kangaroos has been having it a lot worse in the past 2 weeks.

mama cried yesterday when the flat black box (insert by maussie for the human readers: laptop) told her that lots of humans were eaten by the orange flames because they wanted to stay at their homes instead of selfishly fleeing leaving their cats and woofies behind to burn alone. i guess, humans are nice, even though they are a little silly at times.
