Tortie Tuesday

Sweet Pea is going in for her spay surgery today, and I suppose I feel a little bad about tricking her into thinking it was going to be a fun surprise at the vet. I just didn't want her to be worried about it so she'd go into it with a positive outlook! Torties don't feel guilty very often, but Mommy captured it in a photo so you can see this rare event.



I love the little tyke, and I'll show you one of the main reasons why. Some of you may remember my fetching video from a while back. I trained long and hard with The Ball Guy (Sweet Pea's Daddy) to learn how to fetch like this. I was a little older than Sweet Pea in this video.



Now here is Sweet Pea in my old apartment with The Ball Guy doing the same thing! She is just as good as I am!




I told Sweet Pea that I would be right over to the vets if she needs me. I've got the car keys! I don't know how to drive yet, but how hard can it be?




Please join me in some purrs for Sweet Pea so that her surgery goes well.

Delilah

P.S. Today is the last day to vote for Sweet Pea in the finals of Kitty Fight Club!


UPDATE: Sweet Pea's surgery was completed at 2:30 PM EST and she is resting and doing well. The Ball Guy will be able to go pick her up at 7:00 PM, but he is so anxious to see her that he's going to go at 5:30 to wait with her until she's released! Thank you all for your purrs!

We're sending Sweet Pea lots and lots of purrs! We hope it goes as smoothly as it should. We know it is never fun to go to the V.E.T.

It's amazing seeing those videos side by side in the same hallway. We are very impressed at how well you both fetch (we tend not to bring the ball back!)

Please give Sweet Pea our best!

Purrs from Tasha (and Franklin and Dobby too!)

We're sending Sweet Pea our biggest and loudest purrs along with some head licks. It's scary Sweet Pea, but it will be over soon.
And we love the vids! That's so cool that you could train the Ball Guy to throw the ball for you! And it's great that Sweet Pea is continuing his training.

Anya said...

We're sending lots of purrs to Sweet Pea today! We hope she has a quick recovery so she can play fetch again soon! We enjoyed watching the videos - you taught Sweet Pea how to play ball very well Delilah!

Daisy said...

Good luck Sweet Pea! I hope you have a quick and easy recovery!

Cory said...

We've got the purr motors fired up and going for Sweet Pea this morning. We think that she knows that you love her lots...and if you need to know how to drive, Grete can help you. She jumps into the drivers seat of the car ALL THE TIME...so she must know how to do it.

We'll check back to see how Sweet Pea is doing.

Marg said...

We are sending tons of purrs to Sweet Pea. Hope the operation goes well. We will keep our toes crossed too.
You are right, how hard can it be to drive the car over and help Sweet Pea.
What a good job you both do fetching the ball. That is so awesome.
Have a great week and we will be praying and purring for the Sweet Pea.

Kea said...

We are purring hard for Sweet Pea's surgery, crossing our fingers and paws that all goes well!

Sammy and Andy said...

We are sending megapurrs for the darlin' "Sweepy" today.

We remember your video, sweet Deli....and we're happy to see you've trained the cute little "Sweepy" well!!!! And it's a comfort to us to see you are standing by with the car keys to go to her aid if she needs you.

We love you all.....xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Amy and The House of Cats said...

We are sending Sweet Pea lots of purrs. We know she will be just fine but we know it is tough on a girl so we hope she is all better very soon!

And that is so great that she is carying on the tortie tradition of fetching!

loki said...

My Sweet Pea, we are purring for you, that everything goes really really well.

I'm amaze that you bring the ball back.Very cool video.

Big hugs,

loki and nanny

Ginger Jasper said...

Oh Sweet Pea you have got my purrs for sure. I hope all went well and you are soon back to playing fetch with your daddy.. Hugs GJ xx

Sweet Praline said...

How cute! I am so impressed with both of your fetching skills.

I am purring really hard that everything goes well for Sweet Pea today. Please keep us up-to-date!

CCL Wendy said...

We're all purring for Sweet Pea, here, but we're also sure that she'll be just fine. It was actually kind of you to lull her into feeling good about going to the vet.

Wow, and some people think only dogs can fetch! LOL!

Sweet Pea is a regular mini-you, Delilah!

Busby and Raymond said...

WOW! Tortie guilt is a rare thing. In fact, we think CAT guilt is a rare thing. Well you sort of told Sweetpea the truth because she will get a surprise at the vet, just not a fun one! We hope she recovers quickly.

Katnip Lounge said...

Hurrah! Sweet Pea's surgery os over and done. We expect she's home by now.
Mommy had never seen a guilty tortie look before today. And she probably never see one again...MOL!

Eric and Flynn said...

We are glad Sweet Pea's surgery is over and she is doing well.
You are both very good fetchers. I used to do that when I was younger, but now I tell mum if she wants it, she must fetch it herself.

Cats in Trees said...

Wow, Sweet Pea is a natural, just like you.

Glad to hear the surgery went well. We hope Sweet Pea recovery will be quick and smooth.

(And your Ball Guy is smarter than our Photoguy.)

ABBY said...

OH we are so glad things went well and we are sure the Ball Guy is glad to have his Sweet Pea back home!

Mishkat said...

We checked back just in case there was an update, and are glad to hear that Sweet Pea is OK!

Tasha says to tell Sweet Pea's dad to put some soft stuff on the floor for her in case she wants to lie there. Tasha preferred to lie on the floor for a few days after her surgery - although we hear that some cats have no problems jumping to their favorite spot.

P.S. We think it's really cute that the Ball Guy is going to the vet to wait with Sweet Pea! He's a great dad.

Delilah, we think that you would make a very good big sisfur ;) We are happy Sweat Pea is doing well! She has a great Dad :)
You are pawsome :)

Sparkle said...

Really? You're supposed to bring the toy back to the human? I thought THEY were supposed to fetch it!

I'm sure Sweet Pea will come through just fine. Am sending her some warm purrs.

Fin said...

We're so happy to hear Sweet Pea is doing well! She is a really excellent fetcher, but then she learned for the master!

BeadedTail said...

We had to check before going to bed to make sure Sweet Pea was okay and we're so glad she is! We've been thinking of her all day! The Ball Guy is such a wonderful Daddy to go stay with her until she is released. We're still sending purrs that she heals up quickly!

Splendid Little Stars said...

glad Sweet Pea is doing well! voted for her! (Here from Beaded Tail.)

The Furry Bambinos said...
