What's Going on Wednesday

 Sorry, not sorry, for all the pictures in today's post.  We have had a good week and the panthers have a lot to show...

The boys got a pirate ship for halloween.  It was a bear to put together, but Rusty enjoys it.

Still loving my Chad snuggles.  He is definitely a male!  On Saturday, he got his first FVRCP vaccine and his FeLV/FIV test.  He was negative for both.  After a few hours, Chad was crying in pain and not wanting to use his front leg.  We figured he was a bit sore from the vaccine and told him to sleep it off that it would feel better in the morning.  Sunday morning, he doesn't want to eat and is still crying in pain if you touch him, or if he tries to move his arm.  There wasn't a definite moment when he cried out the first time, to indicate that maybe he had hurt it, but something was going on.  We went to church and then took him to the vet school for an emergency visit.  We wanted to make sure nothing was broken or dislocated.  After 4 hours, it was determined he is a drama queen and is sore from the vaccine!  By 6 pm that night, he was playing and running like nothing had happened.

Harrison has found a good spot in Aunties bed...lots of pillows there.

Rusty on the mama soft and warm

Chad has been having some diarrhea because of his antibiotic, so a bath was needed.  Thankfully, he is done with the medicine now and his poops are back to nice forms :)  Just in case you were wondering.

Another view of Rusty in the pirate ship...

Baby after his visit to the vet school...sleeping hard.  He looks rather proud of himself doesn't he?

Durham, where I live, is the Bull City...early voting is nice.  

Chad now weighs 2 pounds.

Grainy photo, but Rusty is playing hard...

Chad learning to puff up...he didn't know what to think of the big cats all getting crazy with their catnip!

Flynn found the fresh catnip in the garden...

Lenny on the porch hoping it will be finished one day :)

Harrison is getting braver with the baby, or maybe telling Chad, this is my toy.

Sweet kitten selfies

The roof for the porch arrived...can't wait to hear the rain on the metal roof!

Flynn is just a tiny baby and needed to be burped after his dinner :)  He was not amused!


Chad went to the eye doctor yesterday and he has some vision in both eyes.  He has something called Persistent Pupillary Membrane (PPM) on both eyes.  This effects his vision some, but nothing needs to be done about it.  He also has eyelid agenesis, which will need to be corrected in a few months when he is older.  Overall, a good report for Chad.

Flynn sleeping on the counter over the dish washer...babies can't keep their body heat in...

Flynn isn't sure why the baby is climbing in his food bowl!

Chad starting to eat off the floor sometimes with the big boys.  Cousin Lenny doesn't seem to mind.

Harrison playing on the stairs with the baby.

Well, there you have it...I hope you are having a good week and thanks for stopping by to visit us.


  1. Chad is such a cutie, even if he is a drama queen. :-D Great news re: his eyes, that nothing major is wrong. I certainly hope he'll find a wonderful forever home when it's time, if he hasn't already.

    Harrison, at least, seems to be enjoying Chad's company! :-)

  2. It looks like Chad wants to be with the big boys. Rusty looks good in his pirate ship.

  3. Glad everyone is doing well. Chad is so cute. How funny that they called him a drama queen...or should that be king???

  4. Chad is so cute! How funny that he's all about the drama. :)

    Rusty, you make a good pirate!

  5. We have that pirate ship too, and my human actually shot a video of us putting it together! I'm glad Chad is doing better.

  6. What lovely pictures. We're glad that Chad is doing ok !

  7. Chad is a cutie. All your cats are adorable.
