Can you guess where I was?

I don’t look very happy here.

This was me last week. Can you guess where I was? If you said “at the vet’s” you’d be right. But I wasn’t at my regular vet. I had to go to a special vet that deals with the heart. Y’see, when I was at my regular vet about a month ago, she listened to my heart and said she heard it murmuring. I don’t know what it was saying, but it was talking enough that she wanted a special vet to hear it. So the mom and me went on a road trip to see this special vet…called a vet cardiologist. His office was quite a ways from our island, and I didn’t like being in the car very much. I sang a little to the mom and then she sang some to me. I think I have the better voice.

I have to admit, the special vet was a pretty nice guy. He listened to my heart murmuring, and then he took me in the back room so he could take some pictures of my heart. He brought me back and told the mom that the murmuring wasn’t too bad but he wanted me to start taking some medicine so the murmuring doesn’t get any worse.

I wanna go home!

This is my “I wanna go home now” face.

So now I take a teeny tiny piece of a teeny tiny pill once a day. Don’t worry about me…I feel great. The medicine is just a precaution to make sure my ticker…that’s what the mom calls my heart…keeps on ticking. And I don’t have to go back to see the special vet for about a year. Which is long enough for me.

Hey everybuddy.  Wally here. So, the mom is finally home after her weekend away. Wanna see what me and Ernie did while she was gone?

I did a lot of snoozing

I did a lot of chair snoozing.

Ernie did some sun bathing

And Ernie did a lot of sun bathing.

And what did the mom do?

The mom hung out at a lake

She hung out with her friends at her friend’s lake house. She said she had lots of fun, but seriously…who would wanna be near all that water?

remembrance-day

Today is the 2nd annual Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day…started by our friend, Deb from The Chronicles of Zee and Zoey in memory of her special cat, Mr. Jazz.  It’s a day we remember and pay tribute to those that came before and are no longer with us.

Scooter and Wally sleepy selfie

It’s also Selfie Sunday…so in honor of that and Remembrance Day, we’re sharing this “sleepy selfie” of Scooter…the cat who came before us…and Wally when he was just a little cat.

We’ve talked about Scooter before. He’s the original Island Cat…even before we had our blog, we were called Island Cats…and it all began with Scooter. It’s hard to believe he’s been gone for 10 years now. Wally is the only one of us that actually knew Scooter, but we still feel his presence here.

Scooter may be gone…but he is never forgotten…and he will always be loved.

I'm not a happy camper

Hey everybuddy. I am not a happy camper. The lady with the yellow hair is going away this weekend…a “girls” weekend, she said. Don’t tell her…’cause I don’t want her to get any ideas that I like her or something…but I hate it when she goes away. Oh, the big guy will be here to take care of me, but it’s never quite the same, y’know what I mean? The food doesn’t get mixed around in my dish just right and my litter box doesn’t get scooped nearly enough.

And then there’s those boycats. Need I say more? Oh, I know…I have to put up with them every day…but when the lady with the yellow hair isn’t here, it’s just that much harder to deal with. I told her she should take them with her, but she said she couldn’t do that. I don’t know why not. It would be a lot better around here without those pesky boycats bothering me.

How ‘bout you? Do you hate it when your humans go away, too?

The windows are finally open again

Hey everybuddy. Our weather has finally turned a little bit cooler which means one thing…THE WINDOWS ARE OPEN AGAIN!

I've missed you, fresh air

I’ve missed the fresh air SO much!  *sniff sniff sniff*  Not to mention, I can see what all the neighbors are up to now. Y’know…I am the neighborhood watchcat.

Hey, next door guy! Whatcha doing over there??

What's this?

Hey Wally…what’s this?

I'm checking out these Quick Bath cat wipes

This is a package of Quick Bath® pre-moistened cat wipes, Ernie…from International Veterinary Sciences. They’re a quick and easy way to give us cats a bath.

But Wally…us cats are self-cleaning. We don’t need baths.

That’s true for the most part, Ernie…but there are times when we may need a little help with our bathing. Remember the time you got outside and rolled around in the dirt?

Yeah, the mom wasn’t too happy about that. When I came in, she threatened to throw me in the tub and give me a bath.

Or how about the time Zoey had to go to the vet to have *whispering* an enema…and came home with a poopy butt?

Oh yeah…she was a mess! And she really stunk, too!

Quick Bath® wipes would have been purrfect for those occasions, Ernie.

Quick Bath cat wipes

Quick Bath® wipes contain cleaners that help remove bacteria, odors and dander from our fur and skin. They contain vitamins A & E and aloe vera that promote an overall healthy skin and coat. They’re also pH neutral and alcohol free.

Here’re some of the benefits of Quick Bath® wipes:

  • Great for cats that are difficult to clean, or are elderly and have problems cleaning themselves
  • Reduce odor, bacteria and dander which can help humans who suffer from pet allergies
  • Extra thick and heavy duty…and a good size…each wipe measures 5”x10”
  • Super absorbent
  • Easy, safe and effective to use every day
  • Available for dogs as well

Why do I have to model the QuickBath wipe?

Wally, these Quick Bath® wipes sound like a great way to bath us cats…and dogs…without us having to get into a tub of water. And lemme tell you…I’m all for staying outta the tub!

Quick Bath® wipes are available through Amazon.com. For more information about Quick Bath® wipes, visit the International Veterinary Sciences website by clicking HERE.

There's critters in the vent

Zoey, why are you staring at that vent?

There’s critters in there, Lady with the Yellow Hair. I hear them!

I don’t know what you’re hearing, Zoey, but there’re no critters in the vent.

Yes there are! They only come out at night. And I’m gonna catch one when it comes out.

You're scaring the vent critters away

Now go away! All this talking and flashy box clicking is scaring them. They’ll never come out with you around.

The Lady with the Yellow Hair here. Every night Zoey sits and stares at this vent for hours. I’m not sure what she hears, but if there ARE critters in there, I sure hope she’s wrong about them coming out. *shudder*
