Tuxie Tuesday (and Tortie Tuesday for all the Torties out there) Tabby Tuesday too.

Kitties!  I have really been catching up on the mom time I missed while she was gone.  At night, I have stayed very close to her as I mentioned in my Father's day post and when I get on her lap during the day, I relax to the point of looking like I turned into a liquid cat or something all stretched out,  boneless and zonked completely.  Of course the strokes of petting relax me instantly and I'm gone.  Mom gets numb sitting there sometimes but she stands it for me. When she must get up she starts trying to cut my claws.  Works every time.

I have improved a bit in the horking/bomiting department.  I went 8 days with nothing until yesterday when I horked up a long hair ball, maybe 5 inches long for goodness sake and about as big around as an overweight pencil.  TMI, I know.   (mom just asked how a pencil can be overweight?  I dunno). But that was easy to clean up and required nothing other than a paper towel for pick up. I am cutting my furs with my teef or "barbering" as the V-e-t calls it.  That's how I get hairballs as I have allergies --but not so strong that the v-e-t wants to give me something for it. I itch but not constantly. Mom keeps me brushed and combed and furminated but I have trimmed myself to the point she doesn't need the furminator right now.  I'm still pretty.

I got mom up at 6 instead of 6:15.  So she'll use the extra time to study for her licence exam to become a HAM.  They give the exam once a month mom thinks.  She wants to be ready. HAM is a term for Amateur Radio operators  just so you know.

Time to play..there are fevver wands in there wif my name on them!

  1. Hi there Katie. Sorry you tossed your cookies again. Some of us do that all the time. Admiral's look alike Missy does it sometimes. Hope Mom gets that 'Ham' License. Also you both behave and have a great day.

  5. Oh Katie, of course you are pretty...much better than pretty, even...you are you! As for the pencils, your Mom must not be old enough to remember those large, thick pencils that school children who were learning how to write used. I've seen a lot of humans on television who were really big hams. Oh, wait...never mind!

  7. I love it when the kitties become kitty putty in my lap. Theo does it all the time once the pets start in. My sweet Tuxedo, Max, seemed to live in a perpetual state of kitty putty! He always loved being loved on.

  8. Hi Katie....in spite of the hair balls I must say you are doing one fine job of keeping your furs spit cleaned and shiny.

  9. Go easy on the grooming, Katie! Jenna overgrooms and leaves black fur everywhere. I really get irritated when I find her swallowing chunks of fur!

  10. Good Morning Miss Katie. I am glad the vomiting/furball situation is under control. Isn't it nice to have mommy back home? xx

  11. You are too cute.

    Sorry you had a big furball.
    Meredith Ann hasn't done one in a while which is amazing considering all her furs.

  12. Being so pretty comes at a cost - lots of floof to maintain! Hope your tummy quiets down. Our kitties go thru this in spring and fall when we are losing fur or putting on fur! Come back by for more Chica stories!

  14. Well I’m glad you cleared up what a HAM was!!! Austin wondered if it was something Nietzsche invented? After all he did have a different perspective on things ;)

  18. One hairball once a week isn't too bad, I think. You feeling okay, after that last one? Hope so! purrs

    ReplyDelete
  19. One hairball a week isn't too much to ask a mom to pick up. Better than umpteen times a day!
    Hamm???? Oh, ham radio operator. Mommy always wanted to be one, but never had the chance. She hopes your mom gets her license first try!!

  20. Gorgeous Katie Isabella! Awwww! Me and Charlie think you are doing ever so well with your furrs! Hopefully you won't hack up some more for more than eight days! Yay!!!

    We send mum lots of good luck hugs and purrs for her HAM exam!!! We know she will pass with flying colours! Yay! Take care

  21. Hi sweet Katie!

    We are glad you're getting some good quality snuggle time with Mommy. Sorry to hear you horked up a hairball, but we are glad to hear they have been less frequent!

    We were kind of hoping a HAM had something to do with, well, HAM! But good luck to your Mommy on her test anyway. :)

    Hugs to you both!

  22. Gramps was a HAM too back in the day. That is so cool. It's better to hork those hairballs then keep them inside you.

  23. Happy Tuxie Tuesday to our favorite fellow tuxie! Great pic!

  24. It's never too much information when it's about you, Katie Isabella! Yes, that was a big hairball, but I think Dante's got you beat. I even took a picture of it and measured it -- it was 8" long and 2" wide in parts.

    Hey, maybe we should make should make another CATegory for hairballs in the Cat Olympics. What do you think?

  28. Katie, what a gorgeous photo of you! Glad you are bomiting less. Hairballs are No Fun!

    ps: My grampa was a ham radio operator. He would sit for hours and make ...- - - ... noises on the morse code thingie.

  29. Good luck to your Mama on passing her HAM exam and getting her license! That sounds like a very fun and cool thing to do :)

  30. Wow, Katie, I think you might have broken somekind of record with that hairball! Surely your Mommie kept it to show off to guests, right?

    ReplyDelete
  31. Katie, we're all doing the furball yak these days, no matter how much we're brushed! :-(

    Good luck to your mom! You must let her tell us how it goes. My mom wanted to do that once, but who knows what happened with that.

  32. Katie, it was nice of you to save that big hairball for when your mom got home!

    ReplyDelete
  33. We thought your mom was studying to be a HAM cook! How disappointing!


    Seriously, that is great. The mom had a great uncle and also a friend who were ham radio operators, and they had a lot of fun doing it. Its also a responsibility, especially if there's been a CATastrophe.

  34. Yikes, sounds like a heck of a hair ball! Better out than in...
    Good luck to your mommy!

  35. Whoa! Katie!
    That was some hairball! Does your barbering keeps your furs all at the same length?

  36. HAM is a radio??? What a disappointment!!

    I hork up furballs now and then (less often now that I gets furminated) but usually I don't frows up my fudz with it. The Human is happy cause it is less messy than if I hadded a full tummy.

    I'm glad your Mommy is back. She needs to STAY THERE with you!! The Humans have no business wandering off without permission.

  38. Maxwell: our Papa has one of those radio operator thingys. Back in the day he had to get it to be a pilot. Isn't that funny?

    Allie: oooh a FIVE inch hairball? My that's impressive. We get furminated here too.I looove it - it feels like a spa day to me!
