Meow Monday

Meow Monday - pictures of cute cats to start the week. Come see what Jack, Felix, Mack & Mango have been up to! #cats #meow #kittens

Good Morning! Anyone else dragging after the holiday weekend? The holiday on top of wild and crazy kittens wresting all night in the bed; I'm going to need an extra Diet Coke this morning. 

Last Monday was probably the happiest day of my life. Jack had a great visit to the vet. The treatment is working. Chicken Legs and I were SO relieved and SO happy for Jack. 

The kittens are adjusting well. They are making the house their own. Playing hard and sleeping hard. They have started sleeping in the bed with us. It is great until they start wrestling and biting my feet in the middle of the night. LOL!

Both Felix and Jack are doing great with the kittens. Jack isn't hissing anymore. He actually touched noses with both of them this weekend. YAY! We are turning into one big happy family.

As I said, Jack had a great visit to the vet last week. He is responding wonderfully to the treatment. His blood pressure is under control and he gained over half a pound! The vet was able to get a urine sample this time. His urine concentration is good. The normal number is 1125 and Jack's was 1123. So his kidneys are working good. We are giving him a shot three times a week for his anemia and subcutaneous fluids once a week. He is getting a daily blood pressure pill, kidney pill, and Pepcid. He has also had some eye gunk, so we are putting an antibiotic cream in his eyes. They are already looking better. He goes back to the vet on 7/19 to get blood work done. We will revise his treatment plan then. The best news is that the vet didn't think death was near anytime soon! YAY!

Grandpa Felix

Grandpa Felix is doing amazing. He is coming down more and trotting around. He desperately wants to go outside, but we told him he will have to make do with the screened porch. This picture really captures Felix's personality. Very calm, thoughtful, and gentle.

Felix is getting along with the kittens and Jack. He does have a nasty habit of meowing loudly at 4AM every morning. He also comes in our bedroom and bangs on the blinds on the door to go out. Hopefully, this won't last long! Otherwise, he is great. Eating lots of treats and laying in the catnip.

Felix & Jack

SO, here is a great picture I got of Jack & Felix this weekend. It really shows you how big Felix is! Jack is on the right. He is 9 pounds. Felix is a GIANT! I showed this picture to Chicken Legs and he thought it was of Felix and one of the kittens. LOL!


This picture captures Mango's personality purrfectly. She is a wild child. She is always into something. Jumping everywhere and sprinting around the house. I've nicknamed her Squirrel. She LOVES Chicken Legs. She loves to sit on him and take a quick nap. 


Mack is a love bug. He is so tiny and so adorable. I've nicknamed him Mack Attack. He is a mama's boy. He LOVES to sleep on my chest. He starts purring super loud as soon as I pet him. It is the best! 

Mack loves to eat. He also loves to toot. LOL! He follows Mango around the house. He has to do everything that she does. He is a lot smaller, so he can't jump everywhere Mango can. I'm sure he will get there in a few weeks.

Mack & Mango have really bonded over the past week. They sleep together and clean each other. They are so sweet and SO adorable. We are so in love with them! 

The Orange M&Ms are going to the vet today for a round of their booster shots. We are taking them to our new vet this afternoon.
