I have been feeling a lot better since I started back on the medication for my allergies. Mommy says I've been sleeping a LOT and I'm less agitated.
Mommy is very grateful for everyone's advice about food and other possible causes. She has armed herself with samples of food and is going to turn our apartment into a fragrance-free allergy proof place for me. We're pretty sure that the allergy is likely an inhalant and not a food and has something to do with our new apartment because my itchies started right after we moved here, but just in case it's not, she is going to try changing my diet too. If all that fails, she is going to bring me to a specialist and have allergy tests done. Our vet says that skin tests on cats are mostly inconclusive and very expensive, but she can't stand to see me uncomfortable and she doesn't like the idea of putting me on medication for a long time.
I told Mommy she needs to apologize to Sweet Pea for accusing her of scratching up my face, because now she knows that I did it to myself when I was itchy.
Mommy will apologize and she said she got Sweet Pea a really special present - a little catnip-filled squirrel! Sweet Pea is obsessed with squirrels and perches on her balcony all day to watch them. I think she'll forgive Mommy.
While I'm not feeling romantic yet, I know I will be soon, so to get you in a romantic holiday mood, here is a smoochy holiday video of Deli and I from last year. Hopefully I'll be feeling up to a little bit of Delilah loving soon!
