Third Blogaversary

Yikes!  It's our 3rd Blogaversary and we didn't even have a post prepared!!

Mommy only noticed when she visited the CB this morning and read it!

Even though we haven't been blogging nearly as much, Delilah and I are very happy we started this blog and met all of you wonderful kitties, doggies and peoples.

We love you all and we hope to be back to our regular schedule soon!

Tortie T(h)ursday

I was a very well-behaved Monkey this year so when Santa left a big box under our tree, I knew it had to be for me!

He brought me a new Drinkwell 360 Stainless Steel fountain

I loved it as soon as Mommy plugged it in.  I tried to bite the streams of water and ended up getting my fur all wet, but I keep going back for more.

Delilah also loves this one, but Samson hasn't touched it yet.  Maybe it's because I give him an intimidating look every time he tries!

MY fountain!

Hopefully Santa won't be looking for bad kitties until November at the earliest.

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.

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.
