Mancats Love to Stroll

We had a beautiful day on Saturday, with temps in the low 70's.  It was threatening rain, and did drizzle a bit, but we were able to break out the stroller and take rides around the neighborhood.
 Cousin Pirate loved strolling most of all, and would sit in the stroller in the house and just talk and talk, asking to go for another ride. 
Auntie obliged by riding him around the house for a bit...He was able to go around the neighborhood several times, and then a couple more times on Sunday.  It was a great weekend for the mancats!

note: the stroller is zipped up when we are outside :)

Tasty Thursday

This is also a flashback to fostering post...found these pictures and thought they were too cute not to share!
 Here's Penne...she has been working on drinking her milk slurry from a can see how yummy her dinner was!  Look at that big belly...she enjoyed every warm bit of milk.
This is her sister Tortelini - she loved her dinner too!  It won't be long before these girls are sleeping hard with their nice warm bellies!

Mancat Monday

Mom finished up her week of cat sitting, for some silly girl kitties, on Saturday morning.  We were ready for her to spend some time with us...she found some of our toys we had shoved in various places for safe keeping (like under the sofa) and we enjoyed them all over! 
 Devon loved on the nip nanner that had been rescued from the couch...
Then he moved on to two more nip toys...multi-tasking at its finest!

It was a great weekend for was thankful to have some time to rest and just snuggle with us boys.

Wordy Wednesday

Tanner went to the vet the other day for his annual checkup with Smokey.  He could use a few purrs as well...

He will be returning to the vet in one month to have his liver values rechecked...his ATL level was high.  We hope it is just because he has added a couple of new medicines this year, and this 'high' is his new normal, and not another problem. 

Tanner takes the following medicines daily...
  • Atenolol - heart
  • Enalipril - heart
  • Plavix - heart
  • Paxil - behavior
Otherwise, the vet was pleased with his weight loss, and his overall other health!

Toes on Tuesday

These toes belong to Smokey!
 He has kissably soft toes...go ahead, we'll wait for you!
Smokey had his annual vet visit the other day, and his blood word came back with slightly elevated kidney values.  We are going to start adding some special food into his diet and go back in three months for another test.  Purrs would be appreciated for this most handsome senior mancat!

Mancat Monday

We have had a busy few weeks, and were even abandoned for a week while Mom and Auntie took a trip.  We will try to do better with posting. 

The washing machine has been having some issues...the cold water would only run in as a trickle, and therefore would take almost three hours to run a load!  Who has time for that?  Auntie set up an appointment for the repair guy to come out...
This is the inside of a washing machine in case you were wondering...We needed a new water inlet valve. 
Devon was a big helper and snoopervised the repair man the whole time!  He made sure we were not charged for parts we didn't need, and kept the man on track. 

We are happy to report the washer is running just fine now...thanks to Devon!
