My favorite tricks and treats are: I love to lay on the couch and be groomed and then roll off it!!! I look so funny doing this!
Also, I can open Mommy's closet doors (I like to nosey around in there). and
I eat my lysine treats every morning & every night. I have the herpes virus & it affects my eyes.

Where I hang out: I love to spend my days outside. I love to sleep in my sherpa bed or the popcorn bowl on top of the fridge. I also like to get up in my "playhouse" on my back porch that Nana & PawPaw bought me - it has three levels & I like the highest one!

My favorite grubs: On 5-9-13, I was diagnosed with early kidney disease. So I had to give up my Fancy Feast because it contains way too much protein. Now I eat Prescription Diet k/d dry & Blue Buffalo Wilderness Mature canned foods. I also eat Purina nf kidney function dry. I weigh 10 lbs. I just started eating the mew FF broth foods - they are yummy & contain only 7% protein.

My pet peeves: I don't like to stay inside, but Mommy makes me come in at night. I don't like to drink from our water fountain - I prefer our scuba cat birdfeeder outside or my Dixie cup filled with bottled water. I don't really like to go see Dr. William every 3 months to have my Schirmer Eye Test, but I am a very good patient.

What I love about my owners: I love my family because they take such great care of me & they love me very much. I love for Nana to groom me. I am very thankful that my Nana & Mommy took me over 180 miles to see a feline opthalmologist about my eyes and we don't have to put those nasty drops in them anymore.

My cat hobbies: I love to play outside!! I have caught lizards, birds, grasshoppers, moles, and chipmunks - I am quick!!

Pet motto: Cats rule, Dogs drool!!!

How We Met

I came to my Mommy's house one day right before Christmas in 1999 (hence the name MerryBelle) because my other family moved off and left me. Can you imagine that? I'm glad though, or else I wouldn't be so loved and well taken care of!!! We celebrate my birthday on May 20 and my adoptiversary on December 16.

It was a lovely day here in Az. The temp was around 80 with lots of sunshine. I love those new broths, too, and prefer the creamy ones. Yum.

Hi Q MerryBelle
Did you have a nice Thanksgiving? It was quiet here since mom went to her pawrents house. She brought back leftovers, but we don't eat people food.

I take my eye drops every evening & mom says I've been really good about it. Our heat has been on for a month now and mom finally also turned on the whole house humidifier too. It helps keeps moisture in the air.

Shadow & I eat z/d wet food mixed with royal canin calorie control. Indie only gets the calorie control. Lysine gets mixed in & then a little water. We like it. My vet Dr. Willis said that the lysine we're getting now is made for humans. When its gone we're going back to lysine made for cats.

Mom's on vacation so we expect to be seeing her sleep late & getting breakfast late every morning!

Thank you for your good wishes, sweet kitties.
This has been a pretty rough month for so many of our CC furamily members. The loss of loved ones, too much illness, sadness and hardship.
But we are all extended furamily, and we still have much to be thankful for. So from our furamily to all of yours, The Pawty Animals wish every one of their furiends a very Happy Thanksgiving.

Sweet Threesomes and Catmom, Angela
Awww...it's been a while since a cathouse kitty has pounce by your votey button. We're really not getting out much these days. Always thanks for stopping by! Mom had another late day today and this is after leaving work 30 minutes early....she had to run home to look for Exit. Dad did not see him for breakfast this morning thus not for his daily medicines either. Mom didn't get this message until this afternoon and then her wheels started turning....eh...mom eventually realized that purhaps Exit was left outside in the enclosure last night...arrgh....Mom asked to leave work early and sure enough....Ole Exit was outside when mom came home. He was still inside the screens but mom never leaves food out so Exit was famished. Hope that you and your fursibs have a most enjoyable Thanksgiving. We're thankful for square meals and a roof over our heads... Pawhugs...

Hi MerryBelle!
It's gonna be a dry and windy Thanksgiving for us. Just making a few rounds tonight before the big day tomorrow. Thought I'd share a few thoughts on holiday meals.

May your stuffing be tasty,
Your turkey be plump,
May your taters and gravy
Have nary a lump.
May your yams be delicious
And your pies take the prize,
And may Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off your thighs!

Just sayin'. Maybe I should send that to my mom. *snicker* Shhhhh! Don't tell her I said that! Happy Thanksgiving. Hope your day is safe and full of love!

The Girls

PS - We never get any turkey! Mom is SUCH a Scrooge! She says it will make us sick and blah blah blah. So? SHE has to clean up all the sickies! What do we care if we get sick...??

KELS KAT REMEDIES
Good afternoon kitties. Today's topic is: DEPRESSION!!!

No one greets you at the door. The rattle of the leash goes un-noticed. Even the scent of food doesn't get Fido or Fluffy coming. It's not uncommon for pets to come down with depression! Causes might be from illness, loneliness, losing a friend or seasonal.

MAKE EVERY DAY A PLAY DAY: Throwing yourself into some wholehearted play with your pet is perhaps the best way for her to take her mind off her troubles. Get on the floor, tickle her tummy and just be silly.

INCLUDE HIM IN YOUR FUN: If you've recently had a new baby, don't separate the baby from the pet, instead include him in the fun, allow your pet to sniff baby and lay with baby. If you pay too much attention to baby and ignore pet, you are asking for problems.

PLANT SURPRISES: Try hiding some of her favorite treats so she has to 'hunt' for them, this will give Fido or Fluffy to do instead of sitting around moping.

CALL HOME: Dogs and cats may feel lonely when left home alone all day. To perk up your pet, periodically call home and leave a message on the answering machine..hearing your voice will do wonders.

CHEER HER UP WITH MUSIC: Both Dogs and Cats often enjoy music and are less likely to feel depressed when something pleasant is playing. Try leaving the radio on if you are gone all day!

GIVE HIM TIME TO MOURN: It's not uncommon for pets to mourn when they lose a companion....in some cases, they can suffer deep depression. Pet's demonstrate a deep love for one another, just as people do. There is no instant cure for grief, give your pet plenty of time to mourn, give him plenty of love and attention as soon he will bounce back!

BRING HOME A NEW FRIEND: While it's not possible to 'replace' a friend, many pets will feel better when another furry friend joins the home, it will give them another companion to play with.

FOR CATS ONLY:
GIVE A ROOM WITH A VIEW: Without a lot of stimulation, many cats get bored and depressed. To help Fluffy stay entertained, make sure she has a window sill or a cat perch. She can watch birds, butterflies and even people and kitty will be entertained for hours.

FOR ADDED ENTERTAINMENT: Put a bird feeder outside her fave perching window, many kitties will watch the ongoing show for many hours.

TOMORROW: MANGE

Hi Merrybelle
so you live rural like us. we are 45 miles from our vet. there are 2 other vets that are about 90 miles from us. our nearest pet smart is over 300 miles away. momma and daddy have a friend that owns a petshop 90 miles away so she spoils us with scratcher posts and toys. momma says she gets some of our stuff on the puter too. it snowed last night and the dogs have snowballs on their feet when they come in the house now hee hee. well someone in the next town just found a 5 week old kitten out in the snow storm last night. poor little thing was sure hungry. the lady went out to look for more but has not found any. well I better pounce off. I heard the food hit the bowl and I must get there before the others eat it all. have a great day

there's a lot to say and little time to say it
as usual! so here it goes got winter storm warnings out for to-morrow afternoon/night and a foot of heavy wet snow due in. so that'll have janet/nat out shoveling/snow blowing and there goes nat's work on his homework as janet's hoping he can get done as much as he can between today and tomorrow as he'll have more than enough outside to take care of as they're planning on going shopping early friday, so all will have to be done thanksgiving day. janet's got banking to do tomorrow and work as well, so is praying the snow holds off till the afternoon and she can get work in as well as 2 errands which have to be done seeing nothing will be opened she needs on thursday. we're 55 this morning 30s next 4 days then warming back to the 40s and 50s next week with snow to rain and then rain 2-3 other days. sandy,ab,haley,angels

Hi MerryBelle!
Hope you can get enough to eat and I hope you keep taking your Lysine. Mom had me on that when I was a kitten....I haven't needed it again but she just heard me sneeze yesterday so is thinking of giving me some powder. I hope you had a nice weekend; we did but mom said it went too fast and the weather was yucky. It warmed up a little but was rainy and gloomy. Today we have a windy one then it will get cold again. Guess Mr. Winter has come to stay.

KELS KAT REMEDIES
Good afternoon kitties!!! Today's topic is all about those nasty UTI's. Suggested by HT Jesse cause he gets them!!!

She used to go all day without a break, but lately your pent-up pet can hardly wait to go outside. And no sooner does she got out and she wants back in, then has to go out again. UTI's aren't just the 'bane' of bathroom hopping humans, kitties and dogs can get them, too. UTI's make it difficult to urinate. What's more, the inside of the urinary tract can get painfully inflamed.

POUR SOME JUICE: It's a home remedy for people that also works for pets. Cranberry juice, orange juice and other citrus juices boost the acidity of urine, reducing the number of bacteria and helping relieve discomfort. The problem with juices is getting your pet to actually drink it. Try mixing an ounce in with her breakfast food. You can TRY to put out a bowl and see what happens.

PROVIDE FREQUENT POTTY BREAKS: When urine remains in the bladder for a long time, any bacteria that happen to be floating around have more time to multiply, causing infection levels to rise. A pet that only urinates 2 times a day will more likely develop an infection more then one that goes 10 times a day.

ASK FOR ASSISTANCE: DOGS ONLY: Your dog may have great control, but if the only time she gets to go outside is before work and after work, bacteria have plenty of time to do their dirty work. If you can't get home during the day perhaps you can ask a neighbor to let her out for you.

GET THOSE PAWS MOVING: Most dogs and cats can't go around the block without making a deposit. Taking at least two 20 minute walks a day will increase urination and reduce the risk of infection.

WHEN TO SEE HER VET: While most UTI's will clear up on their own even without treatment, occasionally bacteria will swim upstream, causing a dangerous kidney infection.
Symptoms of Kidney infection include frequent or difficult urination and possible blood in the urine. Some pets get feverish and lethargic.
Don't take chances if you notice any changes in your pets normal urinary habits. She may need oral antibiotics to prevent a small infection form turning into a major problem.

Follow the Vets advice and always follow label instructions on any medication..The best time to give antibiotics is right after urination.

Keep them suggestions coming in!! Tomorrow: EAR MITES

Hi Merrybelle
Yes I remember about your eyes and the time you traveled to the eye vet!

I know about that test you do as well...you keep us all informed quite well on your health issues. Your mom is very up on your care and that is terrific. I spose if mom could afford it, she would have all that stuff done to us, too, but we are poor folks!!!

When do you go again for your eye test??? At least you are not blind..or are you partially or not at all?? Your eyes are very purrty!!

Hi Q. Merry Belle,
How are you doing today? It is another chilly one here but not as cold as it was a few days ago. Mom spent her day cleaning and that meant that the vaccuum monster was out and about. I don't know about you but I don't care for the dude. Hehehe.!!! Yesterday Mom did the grocery shopping and she was exhausted after that ordeal as we were out of a lot of things. Dad usually carried the litter down the basement steps and now that he is unable to do that, Mom had to struggle with several cases of litter. She has a bad back after her surgeries, arthritis in her knee and hip and she pulled something in her shoulder. She is a mess. MOL.!!! And, Dad didn't get the stiches out of his ankle. The Dr. said the stiches still weren't ready. Imagine that.!!! What are the stiches waiting for.???? Dad will have to wait until Tuesday for the removal of the stiches and then will have surgery on his other ankle on Wednesday. Oh my, Mom will need a rest when this is all said and done. Anymew, I hope that you are having a nice day and visit when you can. Purrs and a hug, Mittens... Ps: I hope that you are continuing to eat my friend. I will keep you in my prayers..

Come visit me, Mittens. Happy Thanksgiving..., Q. Angel Misty. Thanksgiving Blessings for all.., Minuette. Turkey Day is coming.., Greycee Mist. Gobble Gobble.. & Gypsy: I love Turkey Day....

Soft Friday purrs
This has been a very stressful week for our CC family but made even more so by the quickly approaching holiday next week. This is a hard time of year for our mommy because she lost her mom two years ago (in December) & Monday (Nov 25th) will mark the one year crossing anniversary of beloved Zaboo. She hasn't been in the mood to blog much but hopefully she'll feel better about things soon.

Dad/mom's brother-in-law (& oldest sis) will make it to the family dinner on Thanksgiving since he'll have his dialysis the day before & day after the holiday, so we're glad to have a bit of happy mews.
Big sis just dropped her jeep off for repair this morning after they lost control on ice earlier in the week. Luckily baby Risten wasn't in the vehicle at the time & sis/hubby are okay, but the jeep wasn't in very good shape after they creamed a mailbox during the slide & requires quite a bit of body work. We're just happy they're both okay & are thankful they have good insurance.

All of the NICE kitty girls are doing fine & are as rowdy as ever, plus the outside kitties are all doing good too considering the shocking cold/snow we got so early in the season. We're supposed to warm up into the 50s over the weekend so it should all disappear...at least for a while.
Well that's about all we have to meow right now so we'll wrap our furry paws around each of you & give you a hug. Will meow at you more next week.

Sweet kisses,
Piggy, Sneakers & NICE Girls

Hi MerryBelle!
I hope you are eating enough and getting your lysine. I am up to 8.6 pounds and aiming for 10. Mama weights me quite often on the baby scale Mouse gave us. That stops her worrying so much. As long as we are playful I think they feel reassured. Purrs - Bennie

hello q. merrybelle
well..of course..it's our right to be a little picky from time to time..gotta keep our Mom's on their toes, don't we? it's fun to see how creative they can be sometimes..but we aren't so easily fooled, are we? but, you're right..our mom's do know what's best..sigh...
but, if our mom's don't take care of us, then what would we do if we got sick? so, i guess maybe you should start eating those treats you don't like..it's for our own good, right?
stay warm..i can't believe you're just NOW turning your heat on!! geesh..our house has been closed up for weeks! sammy

Hey MerryBelle!
Cool! That looks like fun! My Mom would never get us an aquarium either. Besides not having any where to put it, Mom would worry that Dean would knock it over & get water everywhere! MOL. But your robotic fish look pretty interesting! Your Mommy always finds the coolest gifts for you! Leaving a vote. Peace & love. Have a purrfect evening. Kitty Kisses. angel anderson

Dear Q MerryBelle
I'm a very picky eater, too. My tummy has become sensitive this year and I've been eating Royal Canin digest sensitive. I'm loving it "so far." Until we found this particular RC canned food, Mom bought several different kinds of canned food that are gentle for my tummy to see which ones I liked. I liked a few of them enough for Mom to think it was safe to buy them in a case, but then...I got tired of them. tee-hee. Mom donated them to the kitty shelter. :)

Mom is hoping that I will maintain my 9 lb. She checks my weight periodically too and worries when I go a little under 9 lb. Sounds like both our Moms worry about us a lot.

Hugs, Artemis

Come visit me, ♥ Artemis ♥.

Happy Useless Stuff Day, MerryBelle!
Oh, I have been shopping and shopping in preparation for this holiday! I’ve scoured all those goofy catalogues that come in the mail for the perfect gift! And here it is … glow-in-the-dark toilet paper for Sissy, a nose-shaped shower gel dispenser for Casper Todd and for YOU …. a DVD rewinder!

What?? You say that’s “Use Less Stuff” Day? Wow, what a difference a space makes!

You know what? I like this holiday better. -- Spreadin’ the love, A. Mallow
