Wordy Wednesday

We had a fabulous Christmas and New Year, and we hope you all did too.  All of the Monkeys were together on Christmas day, so I will pepper this post with some of the photos of Gabriel and I hanging out (the girls were much less social).  We will go over some of the awesome gifts we got in the next little while, but first I wanted to let you all know of a little bit of good news.



As most of our regular readers know, I'm plagued with itchies and Mommy has been trying very hard to figure out what I'm allergic to.  We still don't know what is causing them, but my last dose of medication was 6 weeks ago and I'm still symptom-free.  In the past, my symptoms have returned within a minimum of 2 to 3 weeks after my medication, so something is definitely different this time around. 
Tuxie-tude X 2



Of course we know that the allergies could reoccur at any time and we are all holding our breath and almost afraid to mention it.



Mommy checks me for scabs every day and so far I'm good.  I am not scratching at all either.  We don't know exactly what has changed, but Mommy is going to keep everything (litter, food, detergent, cleaning products, etc.) exactly the same.  She has been desperate to find what my allergy is and has changed almost every product we use!


We are purring like crazy that our dear friend Jasper's health improves and for the wonderful mom of Admiral Hestorb and our sweet friend Marg after their recent losses, and we know you're all busy doing the same, but if you can spare a purr or two that my itchies don't come back, I'd really appreciate it.  Mommy has been SO worried about giving me too many doses of steroids to treat the symptoms of allergies and she will do anything if I never have to have another pill again.

We are so happy to hear your itchies are better! We'll definitely send purrs. The itchies are a miserable thing to have. xoxo

We're so glad your itchies are better Samson! We know where they went - my sisfur Angel got them. She's been itching and grooming all the time and has scabs too. Mommy is worried and doesn't know what to do. We'll start eliminating things and see what helps.

We're glad you all good holidays too! Happy New Year!

Purrs,
Isabella

We are so glad you had a wonderful Christmas and New Year. So glad the itchies have gone and we will most definitely purr for them to stay away. Maybe the fairy on the Christmas tree has magic'd them all away for you cause you have been such a good kitty :)xx

These are really good news for sure. We are glad you had a nice Christmas and a good start into the New Year. May it be a very happy one!

So glad your itchy problem seems to have gone away. Star has seasonal/season changing skin allergies and every fall and spring has itchies, it sure is a pain!

You had those itchys for far too long. Hopefully mommy has banished them from your kingdom!

Of course we can spare some purrs that you stay itch free. Allergies are so hard to figure out. Glad all the Monkeys were together for Christmas!

Itchies are yucky and we're glad you aren't itchy anymore and hopefully never again. Allergies are really tough to figure out.

Samson you know that I experience the same thing as you and i am also treated with steroids sometimes too. I haven't had a flare-up either in a few weeks (knock on wood) Aren't those scabs that bleed just awful?

I wish your Mommy would tell my Mom what she thinks it is...maybe we can help each other?

Love, Cody

Happy New Year to all of you. We are glad your itchies have gone and are purring they don't come back. I had to have a shot 6 weeks ago for my itchies and they haven't come back yet.
