First, MaMA took me to the vet AGAIN. I’ve been scratching, and Youngest Grandson’s young eyes spotted a flea on me. MaMA was worried that I might have ingested a flea infected with something, so she took me — and a Certain Sample — to see Dr. Towsley. Sure enough, I have a minor flea problem and … well, it isn’t nice to talk about, but the first syllable is something you use to fasten packages closed and the second syllable is something that aerates the soil in your garden. No, I don’t have stringmoles.
So the vet gave me a shot that he said was “birth control for fleas” and is supposed to last for six months. I asked MaMA how birth control for fleas worked, and she said the syringe was filled with millions of tiny condoms. Science is amazing.
MaMA gave me a pill with the pill-shooter that she used to use with Munchkin. That made me miss my friend, but it was rather nice to share something with him after his passing. I have to take another pill in 21 days, and then my unwanted guests will all be gone.
MaMA takes good care of me.
Here’s another example: I was getting in trouble for crawling under the blanket MaMA put on the couch to protect me from people cooties.
So MaMA put another blanket over that one, and now I have a super snuggley snuggery.
Yes, that’s really me in there. See?
Happy New Year to you all, no matter how many paws you have, from MaMA, me, and all my temporary lodgers.

This/these shall pass. Sorry for the little one but the snugly couch looks nice.

She already seems to feel better, and her appetite’s picked up. And she LOVES her snuggle cave. 😀

Looks like the wee girl’s fur is growing back very nicely. Sweet little snuggle bunny.
Ami, vets are a necessary evil. I know you’re thrilled your MaMA is keeping such an eagle eye out for your good health. Sleep tight, little friend.

Her fur is getting noticeably longer. No mats, so far. Fingers crossed on that. She’s a snuggle bunny, all right. I’m so happy that I got the chance to make her last years comfortable, healthy, and happy. It’s a privilege.

I asked Daddy Kiril and he agreed, Science IS amazing. 😀

Science is amazing, but not as amazing as The Opinionated Pussycats!
