Wednesday Winners and Other Things

Well, I don't really know what to say about the winners. They are super cats, and peoples of course. They won last week too, and were the only ones to enter this week. Nevertheless, congratulations to you all! The human promises she'll post them to you, Karen, when all the Christmas madness is over.

We're a bit disappointed that the give away hasn't been more successful at generating interest. Because of this, we're going to take a break with the last two weeks until after Christmas. That way, it gives peoples a chance to get the holiday business out of the way. hopefully then they'll come and visit us and enter! Super congratulations to you, Karen, and your furries. It's awesome to win twice! Double the fun, eh?

Now, I told you I'd tell you about the human's arm today, and I better had, as she's whining that it hurts to type, and please can I be concise instead of rambling as I usually do. Rambling? I do not! I speak nothing but words of wisdom, and sometimes griping. no wonder she thinks it's rambling when it deals with all her shortcomings.

Anyway, her arm. Peoples, I have learned, have vets too, but they call them doctors or GPs which stands for general practitioner. I've always wondered why peoples feel the need to have multiple talk noise words for the same thing. Doctor? GP? General practitioner? Personally, I think vet is quite appropriate. So, she went to her vet when I was at mine, to be tested too to see if they could help us find out what the mr Bug was. They stole lots of things from her. Peepee, even poop! How disgusting is that! She allowed them to do it, didn't even spit or anything! I vow that I will work on her training for this.

Ah, where was I? Oh yes, stealing. They also stole some of her bloods, not once, but lots of times. They took four lots of blood in two separate lots, but the second time, when the needle was coming out, it really hurt, and the human's bloods kept coming out lots and lots even though they shouldn't cuz the stealing was done. When they went back inside to hide again and stopped coming out, her arm still hurt really badly, but she thought nothing of it. It's happened before when they've hit the muscle, and she knows it goes away in a day or two.

It's now been five days since they stole her bloods, and rather than getting better, the arm is getting worse. She can no longer get it all the way straight, and is having to take tablets to keep the pain at a manageable level. It hurts when she picks me up, and she's finding it difficult to do things like type or hold a pen for signing things at the work hunt. She even struggled to get my food open last night! What good are thumbs if they don't work propperly? This worried me enough that I insisted she went back to see the vet again. She says she's gonna call early tomorrow morning and try and get in to see him before we all head off tomorrow evening. I hope they don't have to amputate. It would be very inconvenient to be burdened with a human that couldn't open food for me.

In other super exciting news, our Secret Paws partner wrote to us today, and it's Hannah and Lucy! They said they made their people send a package on Monday, and we are very excited! I made my human go to the post office today to see if it was there, cuz if it was, we could have told you all about the super things inside. The human said I could open it early cuz I wasn't gonna be around for Christmas. Unfortunately though, it wasn't there. Hannah and Lucy, if it arrives tomorrow, is it Ok if I open it? Then I can take toys with me to Dogface's new home! If not, I can wait until after christmas. Your choice!

Now to a matter super important. Friends, I have a problem. I need a manly mancat to come visit me right here, right now, and I can't find one! I've been shouting and shouting for one, but they don't seem to be able to hear me, and the human says she's not taking me to see my man friend who owns his own house cuz I'm still having pudding poo and she doesn't want him to get sick and anyway, I said I was going with Dogface and I can't do that if I'm with my man friend. Ah, but all that doesn't matter now. My promises to Dogface are nothing compared with my need.

I've left him signs in both of my litter boxes. Many ladycats scent mark (peoples call it spraying) when we want to find a mancat. This surprises a lot of humans. They think it's only mancats that do it, but it isn't. Where many ladycats spray on people things, I won't. Firstly, if a mancat does come, I don't want him interested in people things. I want him interested in me! Secondly, it wouldn't be polite to scent mark the human or the things she calls clothes or the sofa where I sleep. After all, I wouldn't like it if she marked me everytime a manpeople came here. I'd stink!

With all this in mind, I choose to mark my boxes instead. I do this frequently, probably about once every half hour or so, and when I do, I shout and shout and shout no matter what time of the day or night it is, just in case he's listening. He hasn't come though. What am I to do! Friends, is there any way you know of to smuggle a mancat in here? More to the point, are there any mancats out there who would like to come, um, see my place for a bit? The human and Dogface are leaving tomorrow, so we could have all the house to ourselves! Mancat, Mancat, wherefore art thou Mancat! Maaaaaaaancaaaaaaaaat!!!

Hi Tia! We are sorry you didn't get more entries in the contest - we didn't enter because honestly we don't use the soft paws things - mom just trims our nails. We don't think that we would like them (and mom is afraid we would pull them off an eat them - and lets face it, they probably are a bit tasty - we like plastic flavored things). We think the 2 week break is a good idea but we hope you will be back to it soon. Mom said that the holiday stuff does get people really busy, so that may be part of the problem.

And oh we are so sorry your human's arm is still hurting. That doesn't sound right to us - we know mom has had that for a day or so from when her vet takes her bloods, but 5 days just is not good - so we are glad she is going to go back to the vet. We are sending her lots of feel better purrs and prayers!

We think it is cool you are in Santa Paws - we didn't do it but we bet you will get some great stuff!

And oh we can't help with the manly mancat thing - we have mancats at our house of course, but they aren't really manly anymore, so they couldn't help you out. We hope you do have one see you soon - though we do understand your humans point about not wanting to get him sick too!

Tia, we are so sorry the human is having problems after her bloods theft. Mom said some nurses are good and some are not. We do hope her vet helps her and shouldn't charge her, my Mom said. Tia, I hope you meet your love soon.

Oh sweet Tia!! Me and Charlie hope that your human will return to the docs to get her arm fixed- it's not right that it's hurting her this long!! Oh dear!! Big hugs all round!!!

We hope you find a gorgeous mancat!! Charlie is still a silly boy and is more interested in er... sleeping and chasing littler animals! LOL!

Take care

We hope your Human is feeling better, that is not a good thing happening with her arm.
We will purr for you and her.

WE just know a single mancats are all going to be lining up to court you! My two brothers have given their hearts to two sweet ladycats.

We hope your Mommy is going to be OK, it sounds like she's got a big bruise forming!
Our Miss Sweet Pea sprays once and a while, she had a litter before she showed up at our house and was spayed.
None of us ManCats can help you...we're all Tims and no longer Toms.

We're hoping your human's arm is feeling better by now. A hurty arm can be a problem, especially when it comes to feeding the kittie.

We never entered your contests because we don't use Soft Paws. We felt kinda bad that no one entered, but we weren't sure what we could do with them even if we won.

Tia, We don't have an email address for you so we want to let you know we sent off your wavy glass dish you won in the auction yesterday. We hope there won't be a problem receiving it since you won't be there when it arrives.

Have a fun, healthy trip.

Karen said...

I know you are all going away for the holiday. We wanted to make sure we wished you a very Merry Christmas!!!

Purrs, karen, Pixel and Samba

Sorry to hear about the medical problems for everyone and I hope they find out what is wrong soon.

Have a Merry Christmas!
