The Cats Pulled Rank

I have three cats and one dog. Since today (October 29) is National Cat Day in the United States, the cats banded together and insisted that I post pictures of them and their deceased siblings. The dog objected, but lost the battle.

So here are pictures of my cats.

I call this the “Vampire Bite.”Miko is the cat giving the look and bite. She was just a kitten when the pix was taken; she is now 5 years old and a lot darker and fluffier. The cat getting the vampire nip is Ellie. She died a few years ago.

The above pix is of Peaches (18 years old) and Miko (5 years old). They think it is hilarious to hog my chair.

The above pix is MeiMei. She really liked the warmth of the computer equipment. She also died a few years ago.

The above pix is my Sunni. Possibly my favorite cat as she is a cuddle bug.

The above pix is of all three current cats snoozing on the couch. Peachie and Miko are on the top, and Sunni is on the bottom.

Miko can sleep anywhere.

The above pix is of Miko and Ellie. The size difference is incredible, but Ellie was the boss over Miko. When Ellie died, Miko had a difficult time missing her.

Sunni insisted I include the above pix of her and Ziva, the dog. These two are often plotting against the other two cats.

Miko is very photogenic, but sometimes just doesn’t want to be bothered. The above pix is one of those times.

 

Heavy sigh. The above short video is of Miko showing off her paper shredding skills. And darn Sunni walks by and just ignores her. Five years of Having to keep Kleenex, toilet paper, and paper towels away from Miko. It’s exhausting!

Happy Cat Day!! In my house, everyday is Caturday!

And I’m Back!

Don’t know where the time has gone, but it has been almost 2 years since I have posted here. Let’s see if I can remember what has been going on in the past 2 years.

My knee surgery in June 2016 did not solve my right knee issues, so I had a total knee replacement in April 2017. Whereas the bone-on-bone pain is gone, my muscle strength has just not come back and I have issues with that. Yes, I have done physical therapy and that gets me only so far. I even had ASTYM therapy which breaks down tissue through manual manipulation in an effort to allow regeneration of healthy tissue. As you can see in the photo, I had a lot of bruising.


I have excellent range of motion, just no muscle strength. Heavy sigh.

Recovering from knee replacement surgery kept me quite busy for much of 2017. I also got back into quilting and finished several quilts. Here’s one I finished and I will show more in future posts.

My pets have taken over my life which keeps me busy. I currently have 1 dog and 3 cats! More on those guys in a later post too, but here is a photo of the 3 cats. Miracle that I could get them all in the same shot.

I will post more later as I attempt to get up-to-date.

Caturday Adventures

Daughter has been going through her closet and drawers in an attempt to sort out items to give away. Thus containers and tubs that require investigation and catly approval.

MeiMei found a comfy spot in a paper bag and a tub. Double-score!

Eager to provide a second opinion of its suitability, Miko started sniffing around.

Noting her sisyfur’s interest, MeiMei hunkered down, determined not to give up her tub. Poor Miko couldn’t convince MeiMei to leave.

Typical Caturday.
