Mommy, me thought spring was here. Why is it so cold and stormin’ out?
Spring is here Dezi. But April in Oklahoma is windy, chilly and stormy. And we may still get a freeze before it’s all over.
A FUREEZE? But mommy, me wants da sun to come out so we can go fur a stroll.
I know baby. Trust me, we’ll take plenty of strolls when the weather warms up.
Okay mommy, thank you. Ya’ know a while back a couple of me’s new furiends asked why you needed Service kitties. Me told them we would write a posty ‘bout it and then lots of things happened dat we needed to write ‘bout and so we never got ‘round to ‘splainin’ anythin’ to them.
I know baby, maybe we can give them a little over view today.
Dat would be pawsum mommy. And then when me’s new sisfur and helper gets here they can read all ‘bout us trainin’ her. Me can’t wait to meet her.
Me either sweety. I sure hope she finds us soon.
Anyways, a long time ago now, you had car accident dat left you disabled, right?
You had lots of nerve and muscle damage; and cuz of it lots of times you don’t have any feelin’ in your extremities. And you have a blood clot on your brain dat makes you have migraines all da time.
Well sort of honey. The blood clot is just one of the reasons I have migraines.
Well, okay. Anyways, you have lots of pain and have to take medicines to control it. And when we go to sleep at night those medicines wear off and you get all stiff and stuck in pawsition; so you can’t move in da meownings. So dat’s why you need massages to get your body and muscles warmed up and movin’. And cuz you need to visit da pawdee box room when you wake up, you need me to drive your wheelchair so you can pull yourself onto da, well, you know. And ya’ never know when da pain or da pinched nerves or whatever is gonna cause you to pass out and go fallin’ to da ground. Me knows tho’ and you need me to tell ya’ so you don’t have to fall all da way to da floor.
I sure do baby. I really appreciate you letting me know. That floor sure is hard and an awful long way down. And for a migraine. there’s nothing in the world better than a purring kitty giving a massage. It’s so relaxing and helps so much.
Oh mommy me luvs givin’ you a massage. Me sometimes gets so happy me drools a little. But on with me’s duties. You also pass out in da shower a lot. Somethin’ to do with those nerve things, right? Anyways, a peep can drown in as little as 2 inches of water. So it’s really purrtant to keep your head outta da flow of da shower. And you’re not very graceful mommy. Lots of times you lose your balance and fall. Ifin you was to ever be hurt really bad and couldn’t get to da fone, you would need somepawdy to call da ambulance to help you. Even with a helper me can’t stop da bleedin’ or patch ya’ up.
Well baby you summed it up pretty good. Now why don’t we end with something positive today.
Dat’s a great idea mommy. Me knows everypawdy wants to know what me decided to call me’s fishy. There was a lot of great names suggested by ya’ll. And fur da record me had already tried to name him brekky, lunch or dinner, and mommy sed no. She sed dat was worse than callin’ him fishy. Anyways, me’s furiends over at J-Cats made a really cool suggestion. They live in Israel and sed da Hebrew word fur fish is “Dag” purrnounced Doug. So me’s gonna call him Dougie. Dat way me’s still callin’ him fishy, Dougie just sounds better. So there ya’ have it. Me knows me hit ya’ with several reviews in a row, but dat’s what happens when ya’ take time off. As me sed earlier, it’s stormin’ here, so we will be ‘round to visit as soon as we can.
