Hi Dame Rosie,
We are so relieved as we didn't lose power yesterday. We had freezing rain and then it turned over to snow. We got another 4 inches and more is on the way Sunday and Monday. But we will worry about that when it comes. Today was cleaning day and we all stayed out of the way until Greycee gave the "all clear" sign. She is the only one who watches the cleaning process. After lunch, Mom took out some toys and we all played for a short while. Afterward, Dad had the snow blower out and we all watched him from the patio room. It was fun to see the snow shooting out of the machine. Hehehe.!!! Tonight is a hockey night and we will be watching our Penguins, hopefully they will do better than the last game. I hope that you are having a nice day and visit when you can. Purrs and hug, Mittens..

Hi Rosie
It was pawsome seeing everyone show up at my 5th BD pawty yesterday but today is even better because I got my 5th COTD award! One for every year of my life...not too bad if I say so myself...MOL!
I want to thank all of my pawty visitors yesterday for making it possible for me to have a 2 day celebration. Ahhh...life is super sweet with pawsome furiends like you to share my special moments with me. The beautiful gifts, scrumptious goodies, sweet hugs & soft meows you left made the day purrfect! Thank you from the bottom of my little heart dear furiends!

A friend is like a flower,
a rose to be exact,
Or maybe like a brand new gate
that never comes unlatched.
A friend is like an owl,
both beautiful and wise.
Or perhaps a friend is like a ghost,
whose spirit never dies.
A friend is like a heart
that goes strong until the end.
Where would we be in this world
if we didn't have a friend.

Well since it's almost the end of the month Patches has turned the keyboard over to me & retired a wee bit early. Don't tell her but I think she needs the extra rest anyway...MOL!Besides...I was next in line for February blogging so this is what I call purrfect timing. Just think...a full month of love & calico cyclone visits are coming your way...MOL!

Thank you for being my furiend, for sharing my birthday with me, & for pawing me a vote so I could be in the famous COTD spotlight today. You're pawsome & I'm very lucky to know you!

Purrs of love,
Q Trixie

Hi Dame Rosie,
How are you doing this morning? We are expecting freezing rain in a few hours so I figured that I better visit now. We are hoping not to lose power. Well, Mom and Dad did grocery shop yesterday and we received all of the goodies that we asked for. And, litter too, a very impotant item. Hehehe.!!! We even helped to put our things away. Let me re-phrase that, we watched our things being put away. So, that brings us to this morning. With bad weather on the horizon I think I will find a warm spot and snooze the day away. I hope that you will have a great day too. Purrs and a hug, Mittens...

Hello Rosie
What’s mew with you? Guess what I’m doing! I am hiding upstairs in my hammock in the scrapbook room. It’s Wednesday so you know what that means - our cleaning lady Mrs. Maryann is here this afternoon. I do NOT like anyone (except Mommy, Nana & PawPaw) to see me. These days a girl can’t be too careful, you know. For some strange reason, MerryBelle and Casper Todd like to supervise her work. They are weird! I try to avoid work at all costs!

Happy Hump Day!

Hi Dame Rosie,
How are you doing today? We are having a snowy day and I have been watching it from my condo. I did run out for a few minutes this morning when Mom went to feed the birds. Now I am very happy to be safe and warm inside. Mom and Dad did have a safe trip to Pittsburgh yesterday for Mom's Dr. appointment. It was snowing the whole time and was even foggy but thankfully they made it there and back safely. Tomorrow is shopping day. I of course helped Mom make the grocery list with plenty of items for us kitties. Hehehe.!!! I hope that you are having a good day and visit when you can. Purrs and a hug, Mittens....

TODAY'S CAT FACT
GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT OF KITTENS

A healthy kitten will have a steady weight gain daily. They usually opens their eyes 7-10 days after birth and soon after their ears open and their first teeth begin to appear.

About 3 weeks of age, kittens begin to walk and explore the environment. By about 5 weeks of age, kittens have most of their temporary teeth and begin to eat solid foods. By 6 weeks old, kittens have fully developed their brain and nervous system.

Kittens develop important physical skills by playing with one another and they learn to get along this way. By watching and imitating their mother, kittens improve many instinctive skills, especially hunting. Most cats reach their adult body size by about 1 year old.

HOW CATS COMMUNICATE TO EACH OTHER

Cats communicate to each other by means of odor. Cats have scent glands that are on their forehead, around their mouth, and near the base of their tail. The cat will rub these glands against people and objects. This marks them with their scent. Only cats and a few other animals can smell the odor.

TODAY'S CAT FACT
VARIOUS WAYS CATS COMMUNICATE

Cats communicate in a variety of ways. One way is by sound. The sounds of a cat can have various meanings. A meow can be a friendly greeting or it may express curiosity, hunger, or loneliness.

Purring usually means contentment but cats also purr when they are sick. When cats hiss or growl, it indicates fear and anger.

Cats also communicate through body language. A friendly cat may greet someone with his tail raised vertically but a frightened or angry cat flicks his tail from side to side, arches his back, and puffs up his fur.

Hi Dame Rosie,
Well yes, we do have snow, about 3 inches so far. And, it is snowman snow too... Mom said that if we get more we may just make a snowman/women. That should be fun. Hehehe.!!! This morning Mom dusted the bedrooms and then decided to call it quits. That made me happy because that means time for us kitties. It is a great day to cuddle up, watch tv and maybe even snooze. More snow is on the way so we figure we need to rest up for additional shoveling. I hope that you having a wonderful day as well. Take care and keep warm. Purrs and a hug, Mittens... Ps: I hope that your Mom's eye exam went well and that she doesn't have any problems..

TODAY'S CAT FACT
A CAT'S TAIL

A cat's tail is an extension of his backbone. Cats use their tails to keep their balance. When a cat is falling, he whips out his tail and twists his body to land on his feet.

Cats also use their tail to communicate. For example, a happy cat will walk with her tail held high.

Cats can live without tails. Manx cats are born without tails. Many of them have a short stub but they are mostly known for being entirely tailless.

Hi Dame Rosie,
Happy Friday to you. It is sunny and pretty today, the calm before the storm, literally. Mom has a Dr. appointment on Monday, in Pittsburgh, which is 55 miles one way. We are hoping that the weather won't be too bad on that day. If so, she will cancel for sure. Mom spent the morning cleaning and now we are all able to relax after mr. vaccuum was put away. Never did like that guy. Hehehe.!!!! There was one little altercation between Greycee and me over who would have the higher perch on the condo. Eventually, I let her have it as she can be such a pain. I found an even warmer spot by the patio door. Don't tell Greycee. Hehehe.!!!! I hope that you will have a great day too. Keep warm and safe.

Hi Dame Rosie,
How are you doing today? We are having a miserable Winter day. Mom went out to feed the birds and I went on the porch for a few minutes, waved at the birds and ran back inside. Hehehe.!!! I am sorry that we have missed a few days but Mom had a dental appointment on Monday and they had to clean around her bridge and she was a little miserable after that and on Tuesday she and Dad had appointments with a new family Dr. as well as regular work around the house but, we are back today. My sisters and I have been snoozing in our favorite places but that just means that later on we will be re-charged and ready for action. Look out Mom, Dad, our toys and anything else that may get in our way.!!! I hope that you will have a great day too. Purrs and a hug, Mittens...

TODAY'S CAT FACT
CATS USE THEIR WHISKERS WHEN CATCHING PREY

Your cat not only uses his whiskers to find his way around but he also uses them when catching prey. Cats cannot see well and they need to sense that their prey is in the proper position for the fatal bite. For this purpose, it is crucial for them to use the whiskers on the back of their forelegs and those on their chin and on the sides of their nose.

WHISKERS INDICATE YOUR CAT'S MOOD

The position of your cat's whiskers can indicate their mood.

If the whiskers are relaxed and sticking out sideways your cat is calm. If they are pushed forward, he is excited and alert. If the whiskers are flattened against the cheeks, he is angry or scared.

*You will also have to check their other body language, such as the position of their ears and tail, to confirm what the whiskers are telling you.

TODAY'S CAT FACT
WHY DO CATS HAVE WHISKERS?

The whiskers on your cat are actually touch receptors.
The tips of their whiskers are so sensitive, they can
detect the slightest directional change in a breeze.

Cats feel their way around even in the dark. Your cat will be able to move smoothly into a dark room and not bump into anything.

Whiskers also help cats figure out where they will fit. The whiskers on your cat's nose are about as long as his body is wide. This helps them to figure out how wide an opening is and whether or not they will be able to fit through it.

Hello Rosie
How was your weekend? Friday Nana, Mommy & I went back to Brookhaven (65 miles roundtrip) to visit Dr. William for our lesson on how to give me fluids at home. Mommy learned lots of mew things, like how to heat the fluids, what to do if there is a bubble in the fluids and how to change the needle & start a mew bag. Doc gave Mommy a written list of instructions, just in case she does not remember everything she learned, which will probably happen.

While Mommy was home from work for lunch today, she & Nana gave me 200 cc fluids. All went very well. For now, I will get fluids every Monday & Thursday. We just hope twice a week will be enough fluids for awhile. We don't want to get to the fluids every day point for a VERY long time.

I am still active and seem to feel well. I still play with my toys sometimes. I go back to visit Dr. William in 2 weeks for bloodwork. Thank you for your continued prayers.

Hugs & Love,

TODAY'S CAT FACT
CATS WHISKERS

Your cat's whiskers, also known as vibrissae or tactile hairs, are rooted more deeply into the body than the shorter top-fur coat.

In addition to the 8-12 whiskers on either side of his nose, he also has shorter whiskers above his eyes, on his chin, and even on the backs on his lower legs.

Cat whiskers shed and grow back naturally. Never trim or cut your cat's whiskers. Without these tactile hairs, cats become very disoriented and frightened.

The last few days I covered information on your cat's teeth and how to care for them. However, we also need to watch for signs that may show a problem in your cat's mouth. These are the following signs to look for: dark red line along the gums, red and swollen gums, ulcers on gums or tongue, loose teeth, pus, difficulty chewing food, excessive drooling, or excessive pawing at the mouth area.

If your cat shows any of these signs, it may indicate problems in their mouth.

Happy Saturday to you. Oh my, we have sun and temps in the upper 40's. It is a heatwave.!!! Hehehe.!!! Greycee and I even went outside for about 10 minutes. Mom was putting up the Valentines decorations in the yard and finally putting away the outdoor Christmas decorations that were all over the garage attic floor. Now we are sunning ourselves in the patio room. Tomorrow it will be back to Winter but for now, we will enjoy the sun. I hope that you are having a great day as well. Purrs and a hug, Mittens....

TODAY'S CAT FACT
BRUSHING YOUR CAT'S TEETH

Here are some steps to follow when brushing your cat's teeth.

*Get your cat used to the idea of getting their teeth brushed. Gently massage their gums with your fingers or touch them with a cotton swab.

*After a few sessions of massaging the gums, get them used to the taste of the toothpaste. Put a small amount of cat-formulated toothpaste on their lips.

*Next, introduce a toothbrush that is made for cats. The ones that you wear over your finger give your cat's gums a nice massage.

*Apply toothpaste, that is made for cats, to their gums.

It is best to get your cat's teeth examined by a vet before you start brushing them. Many cats have mild gingivitis and it can hurt their gums if you brush them too hard.

Note: The best time to get your cat started with brushing their teeth is when they are a kitten so they will be used to it as they grow older.

TODAY'S CAT FACT
KEEPING YOUR CAT'S TEETH HEALTHY

If your cat has bad breath, this usually indicates oral problems. When he has bad breath and is drooling, the cause is often related to gum disease and/or tooth decay.

*Provide your cat with a good diet to maintain his teeth for good health. Your veterinarian may recommend a diet that's good for your cat.

*Get your cat a yearly dental checkup.

*Brush your cat's teeth with a toothbrush and toothpaste made specially for cats.

*Massage your cat's gums: Tooth decay usually starts with inflamed or irritated gums. This will accelerate healing and also strengthen the gums so that your cat will less likely suffer from problems in the future. Gums should be pink, not red or irritated.

Hello Rosie
How are you? I went for my weekly visit with Dr. William this morning. It was good mews/bad mews with my bloodwork. Here are the changes in my levels:

Weight = 8.2 (last Wednesday it was 8.5 so I lost 3/10 of a pound in a week)
BUN = 49 (was 46 two weeks ago)
Creatinine = 4.2 (was 4.3)
PCV = 38 (was 40)

I got 200 cc sub-q fluids today. Dr. William says we need to increase my fluids to twice a week to hopefully keep my levels steady. So Nana, Mommy & I are going back to see William Friday morning so Mommy can learn to give my fluids at home. Wish us luck!

Hugs,
Q MerryBelle & Mommy Angela

Hi Dame Rosie,
How are you doing today? We are all fine, relaxing a bit as Mom has been pretty tired from a lot of errands and Dr. appointments recently. Dad saw his foot Dr. yesterday and his feet are healing nicely. After the appointment Mom and Dad did some shopping. Mom got a gift card for Michaels Craft Store so she went there to get some supplies and made a new decoration for the bathroom wall. Then to Home Depot for a new ladder and also some shopping at Walmart. After that, a nice luncheon at Red Lobster. Mom and Dad enjoyed their day and after they came home we all got our supper and treats too. We are now waiting for the Internet Supplier to come and check our service. That should be fun. MOL.!!! I hope that you are having a pawsome day too. Purrs and a hug, Mittens...

TODAY'S CAT FACT
GROOMING

Cats instinctively clean themselves. They do this by licking their fur with their tongue and they also rub and scratch their fur with their paws. Each day cats lick a paw and wash their face and head with the wet paw. But cats do not always groom themselves well.

As an owner, we need to comb or brush a cat's fur everyday to remove loose hairs. This is essential for long-haired cats to prevent the coat from tangling and matting.

Daily brushing or combing reduces the amount of loose hair that cats swallow when cleaning themselves. Swallowed hair can wad up in their stomach forming a hairball.

Kittens should also be brushed or combed to make it easier to care for them as they get older.
