Thoughtful Thursday

Dee here.
I wanted to let all our furends know that we are doing well.  Our regular Vet has put Squashies on Interferon, and we are in process of weaning her from the steroids.  We have placed a literbox and water stations on all three floors of the house, so she doesn't have to do the stairs if she finds her energy waning.

The last week has been a good one for Squashies. She is alert, eating well, playing with her toys and gracefully jumping up on the high cabinet for her afternoon naps. Still, we aren't squandering our time together- every moment is precious.

Even though these are smartphone pics, with no attempt at creating appealing composition or lighting- I wanted to share them.

Squashies by the day-bed in my office.
TK and Squashies in the tree.
TK has been very attentive to his little sisfur.
"You may kiss my hand!"
"Is it lunch time yet?"



The young Master Pip-Squeak is fitting in nicely. He is a "get-along" kind of fellow and switches easily from rough-housing with TK and purring quietly near Squashies.


Pip (who isn't allowed outside,) sits next to TK while Squashies has some deck time.
He is also a little snuggle-bug. He follows me around the house and, whenever possible, he tries to put as much of his body against me as possible. I'm not sure if he feels safe near me, or if he is showing gratitude.  Either way, I love his exuberant affection.



I really want to thank all of our CB furends, you have been so gracious with your cards, emails, FB posts and Tweets.  Your thoughtfulness and support are a blessing.

  11. Oh that is great news. Just so he's comfortable and not hurting, it will be great to have him around as long as he feels up to it. You are wise to take it day by day and enjoy each and every day. Your pictures are great. The important thing is that they be taken and we always enjoy seeing him. Such a handsome boy.

  21. Thanks for the update, we were wondering how things were. Our blog is nothing but phone photos. Oh well, they are easy to work with, if not the best quality.

  22. Those are most excellent photos...I'm glad Squashies looks so content and that she's being taken care of by her furry bros :)

  25. We are so happy to learn that Squashies is doing better and looking so well. Interferon is a remarkable drug, it obliterated the calici virus from Gerry's system completely. We know Squashies issue is more complicated but we have good faith in that drug.

    Pip is such a lovely lad, what a good mancat to sit and purr with her and to wrestle with TK.

    Sending love and rumbly purrs

  26. It's good to read about Squashies. Routine is important to a cat, so just being able to do what she always does is probably helping her as much as anything. Continued health to her!

We will keep Squashies in our purrs and hope that you and she will have many good days ahead. Pip is absolutely adorable and our meowmie fell in love with his toes! There are 15 kitties in our household. Come visit our blog when you have some time!

  38. We are so very glad to hear that Squashies is doing well and that you are enjoying your time with her. And it's so nice to hear how well Master Pip-Squeak fits in with the rest of the family. More healing purrs for Squashies may she continue to enjoy good health.

  39. We echo the sentiments of everyone, it's good to hear Squashies is doing well, and your time with her is special.

    It's amazing how cats are sensitive the needs of others, even young Pip.

    Thinking of you all and hoping you have much more time together.

  45. So good to hear that Squashies is doing well on the interferon. We hope it continues to work. Having water in multiple places throughout the house is a good idea for all cats, or so our vet tells us, so that sounds like a great thing for everybody. Pip is adorable. Thanks for keeping us all updated!

  56. I am so glad that Squashies is doing better. I think Interferon helped save Herman's life when he was so sick. Pip looks like a cutie. Spyro acts like that with me sometimes. He rubs his face up and down my arm and purrs, like he wants to pet me back.
