|Young me, still living in FL doing by Jabba the Hut impersonation!|
As I said in the last post, I have mellowed out a bit in my older years. Since I have been like 17 or 18, I have developed a new habit of going over to Mom when I want something and raising my paw to tap, tap, tap her. If I can't reach her from where I am, I still tap the air which must look like I am waving. Mom doesn't know how this came about but it seems to get me what I want!
Another thing I do is shake all over like a wet dog to dry off. But I am not wet. I do this when Mom gives me extra water with a plastic food syringe. She squirts water into the side of my mouth behind my fang and I swallow it. When I am done I stop and Mom says do your shaky and I shake all over.
A couple of you asked me yesterday what was the secret to my long life. I talked this over with Mom and the only thing we can say is switching over to no vaccines and high quality food. When we lived in Florida, both Yoko and I went to a regular vet, got all the vaccines and boosters yearly and ate kibble - Purina or Fancy Feast.
When we moved here 14 years ago, Mom found a holistic vet who did not believe in vaccines so we never got another one! The vet also told Mom to feed us good high quality food - it took Mom a while to completely switch over for all of us but she did.
Now, I still have chronic renal failure which I have had for 6 years and Yoko has high normal thyroid and kidney values but we have been treated all along with homeopathy, herbs and other natural treatments, no drugs. This vet got Mom to stop using only western medicine for herself and she uses all natural things on her and Pop too.
It may have to do with good genes too. Many of the feral cats inbreed with their own and it caused physical problems. We don't really know where Yoko and I came from but we were pretty healthy as youngsters.
We have a big bash planned on Sunday for my official birthday so do plan on stopping by. Our good friends Derry of Fuzzy Tales and Sparkle cat also are celebrating their birthdays that day too. Make the rounds and be prepared to PARTAY!!!!
|In my old age I still like whapping a paper bag for fun and napping it it after.|
For today's noms we have beef rolled in cream cheese - one of my favorites. When Mom has cream cheese on toast I run over and beg for some. She sets some aside on her plate to dip her finger in and let me lick. MMMM MMM good. Even when she stopped eating cow's milk cheese, I like goat chevre like that too. To me cheese is cheese!
To go along with the noms - a passel of nip toys of every kind. So enjoy and eat up. Did you all like the mice yesterday!!!! That was fun.
