Interesting week at Chez Tigre.

I took Sita to the vet on Wednesday for her annual. I got her last April so she was due for her shots and really needed to have her claws trimmed cuz she either bites or tries to bite me whenever I try to do it. I really wish I knew what this little girl had gone through in her first 5 years. It took about 2 seconds to realize she was not going to cooperate with the vet tech’s claw trimming. Muzzle time. Fits over her jaws and covers her eyes. We got her claws trimmed with a huge fight and the dad’s right forearm bleeding all over the table. One of her back legs got free and did a number on me. I didn’t realize it until the vet tech pointed it out. Came home with a big bandage held on with adhesive wrap that says “No Chew!” Michelle, the vet tech, said she was using it so I wouldn’t chew the bandage off. Dr said they’d prolly need to fit me with a cone. I wondered about the No Chew! wrap. What made it No Chew!? The taste. Bitter as all get out. Wellll, I had to try to find out why they called it that.

Every once in a while I can feel Sita purr when I’m petting her. Not hear, feel. This morning she gets up on the bed and I can hear her purring! Pet her and she purred a little louder. Amazing. I was hoping that when she realized that she was gonna return home instead of somewhere else the other day her behaviour would mellow out a bit. And it has. I learned early on she didn’t like being handled around her chest area so pretty much avoided it. She’s been getting on the bed when I wake up in the morning, very lovey. This morning she laid down next to me and I was petting her and she’s purring and I’m thinkin’, man, this is great. I get my hand on her chest and just kind of stroke it and the next thing I know I’ve got 3 new trenches on my arm. Damn they’re fast. First aid stuff is supposed to be for the tigers, not the dad.

Oh, long johnson

Is anybody else seeing a steady rise in pet food prices, particularly canned?

A quiet week at Chez Tigre. I’ve now got 3 regulars at the feral feeding station plus Eileen’s Max and George. We’ve got SweetPea and either her sister or mom and a sweet little calico who approaches by jumping into the bed of the truck, walks along the edge, jumps on top of the cab, down onto the hood and then down by the bowls. She’s so silly.

It’s warm so the kittehs are shedding like crazy. Cat hair dust bunnies everywhere. Nothing like a plastic grocery bag full of cat hair and weighs next to nothing.

I’m gonna try to get a picture of the ferals this evening when I feed them.

Happy Easter

A quiet week at Chez Tigre. I asked the tigerz if they wanted to dye Easter eggs and all I got was silence and weird looks. And I was gonna let ‘em hide ‘em too. Oh, well, they don’t know a good time when they see it. Two of the eggs that didn’t get dyed went for French toast this morning.

This week all I’ve got is an Easter Bunny Peanut Gallery.

I’m not a fan of colouring animals but these little guys are cute. (h/t Janis)
