Re: That Schmoo, he is one tough kitty fighter -- 2.0

Hi Sammie,  I am so happy Frankie had a pretty good appointment!  I agree with your vet, Frankie has not only the best pet parents, but the eye of the tiger from our Precious Schmoo.  I am working in a new mode these days, fake it till you CAN make it again. Everyone has been really worried about me the last few months, with my new normal not going so well.  So while trying to make it each day, I try to find a little of the old me again.  I know someday it will happen, but goodness I long for my crew.  My Joey will be gone a month tomorrow, Lord how I miss that Angel, but my continued prayer is he is with Jakey and Mom in Heaven.  

Have a Blessed Day Friends, hugs to you all Smiley Happy

Re: That Schmoo, he is one tough kitty fighter -- 2.0

Thursday report:  Hello this day on the 157th anniversary of the second day of the Battle of Gettysburg!  (You know me; I'll be forever immersed in this).

 

It's eeriely quiet because the re-enactments are not on due to coronavirus. Normally we'd be hearing some cannons booming by now.

 

Frankie is used to the noise but it still normally would jangle her a bit.  So she is sleeping on her desktop bed at my side, wondering if I really need these Baked Lays chips to write.

 

Last night she was adorable. She jumped on the bed, insisting on a few kibbles (we got the go-ahead to feed her some). After that, she paraded around a bit then re-joined me and just stared, so I said, "Remember what you used to do when you were a baby?"  And she focused like a laser on the story that I retell her often.

 

I let her know that when she "was a baby"--actually 3 when we adopted her--she wanted to be on the bed but what also afraid...constantly looking over her shoulder.

 

And I would sit cross-legged, and point to the sheets among that "knot," and say, "You see this?  This is a kitty nest!  It protects kitties who sleep here."  She'd jump in, nervous at first, then relax and sleep like a baby.

 

Last night, I said, "Frankie, you've been through a lot.  Do you want to go into the nest like you used to when you were a baby?"

 

And she hopped in and I let her sleep there for at least an hour, secure that she was all right.  I had to modify it and untangle my legs a bit. She gave me a grumpy stare because she wanted to stay there, exactly the way she started.

 

So I only got a "3-paw salute," as demonstrated in the photo below.  She kept the fourth paw down because I had to move--a demerit:

Re: That Schmoo, he is one tough kitty fighter -- 2.0

Monday report:  Greetings this hot, sticky day in Schmooville!

 

@Shop Till you Drop  You're not on the clock in your recovery; you will get to a place of peace and comfort at your own pace. Those Double Js and your Mom look down on you with pure love every day and wish nothing more for you than a heart at ease.

 

We're fighting a battle of the stools with Frankie, so we were quite busy over the weekend with foods and medications, a battle filled with terms like "hydrolyzed proteins."  So we're trying to balance our mouse-killer's diet to keep her in good shape.

 

A highlight this weekend:  DH and I watched the musical "Hamilton."  Frankie LOVED the hip-hop and show tunes so much that it set off a frenzy of playing like she did when she was younger!  She leaped, tumbled, attacked, batted at prey covered in fur.

 

Those of you familiar with Hamilton might remember a song, "I'm not throwing away my shot!"

 

So it goes with Frankie.  She's living out loud every moment that she's got--and not throwing away her shot!:
