Hi everyone. I'm dictating to Mom what to write as i can't use my paws yet. Don't know what happened, but they feel "different". I am also set up to stay in Mom's bathroom for 7 days, however long that is. Mom has my blankie in one end of the tub and my box with newspaper clipping stuff at the other end of the tub. Mr. food and water is on the floor outside the tub. Dr. Gail told Daddy she doesn't want me running around the house for 7 days. Daddy asked about my jumping on the counter in the bathroom and she said she wasn't worried about that..just my running. Mommy also squirted some stuff into my mouth this afternoon and said it was magic to help with my sore paws. I think all is does is make me sleepy. But, I've found a new place to sleep that is really cool... in the round sink. Mommy comes in very often and checks on me and talks to me and pets me. I think she said she loved me...or something like that. She put her head down by my face and I licked her face and hair. Then I started my special purr sound and she likes that a lot. Mom told me that when the 7 days is up I can go out on the porch again and not worry about trying to catch lizards and getting my claws caught in the screen. She had to come out and lift my claws off the screen the other day. How embarrassing was that! She said I'll be much happier. But I'm pretty happy now except for staying in the bathroom. How many more days is it 'til 7 days are up?That's all I have to say now. Mom was good about remembering all I wanted her to tell you. I'll keep you posted as I count down the days to real freedom in the house.
Hi all. This is Max's Mom writing now. Max really is a little trouper. It's hard for me to walk out of the bath room and close the door but I know I have to protect his feetsies. He is doing well in spite of it all.
I went out with 2 girlfriends last night to eat and listen to a female jazz saxophonist and her keyboardist and drummer. Her name is Valerie and she is fantastic. She also plays flute and clarinet. She has her degree in saxophone performance. We had a good time and didn't leave until here last set was done and that was at 10 pm. Our reservations were at 6. It was a great four hours of music. I think we'll go again with a few more musicians that would enjoy her the last Friday in May as it's her last time at that particular cafe for the summer.
We're having a pot luck and bake sale after church tomorrow. Since I don't cook I'll stop by a store and get something in the morning on my way to church.
That's all the news from here for this time. I promise I'll write as often as Max wants me to. He really is a sweetheart of a boy. He weighed in at 10.4 Thursday and they said that was good. Anywhere from 10 to 12 pounds is normal but I don't want him to even get to 12 pounds. It becomes too slippery a slope. He gets his 1/2 cup of A Taste of the Wild a day and that's it. I have learned my lesson about over feeding. I can't help but feel I somehow helped Thor get fat and hence contributed to his diabetes. I will not let this happen to Max.
Have a great weekend everyone.
(Yep, we do need a black kitty! )
