Whisker Wednesday...well, somewhat.

Mommy said she'd help me soon as she returns from her lunch with someone.  She'll try to help me go to a few places first.

Mommy said I got an awardie.  Please see my awardie page.  I am too inexperienced to know how to add words to it but I will tell you here.  I got the Leif Award from Mr Puddy.   Mariodacat gave the Star Awardie  to me.  Ann of Zoolatry created it for us.  I loves Mario and Mr Puddy both.  They are handsome.

I am settling down and not demanding to be in mom's arms constantly nor am I glued to her back or stomach at night.  Mom misses that even though she complains.  I AM at the foot of the bed most of the night though.  The half a steroid shot helped 100%.  Mom won't go for another unless and until it gets bad.  All mom knows (to answer the question several kitties asked) is when I came to live with the Vet's Office cats, I was fed Royal Canin dry.  Mom is feeding me Wellness grain free dry and because I was reluctant about the wet, I am having Fancy Feast wet.  I came to her with the allergies so it isn't anything here.  We'll see if it keeps up and if it can be pinned down.  She doesn't know what I was fed in my former home(s).

xoxox

OH!  yesterday was the first sun puddle since I came here a week and 2 says ago.  Here I am enjoying it.  But kitties, even though you see cinnamon color in my furs..I am still black and white.  The strong noon day sun shining on me showed my underwear I fear, which is cinnamon colored.  I found out that many black cats, even solid black cats are cinnamon in their undercoats.

Kissies and whisker ticklings.

Meowers from Missouri said...

good mornin', sweet katie!! we luffs yer cimmanon, it's so pretty. even our iggy glows reddish sometimes, but we suspect that may be a little of the basement cat in him;-)

we are so glad you are not itchin' ennymore, an' that it's nuffin' there at yer new home that's bovverin' you. we guesses the extreme cuddlin' was maybe you askin' fur help, but mama din't know it. or maybe you just felt how furry much she needed cuddlin'!!

fanks fur visitin' us today!

Laila and Minchie said...

Our mom had a black kitty once and she also had the cinnamon colored undercoat. We are happy to hear you are feeling better!

Simba said...

Katie, your itchiness reminds me of Jonesie and her allergies to fleas. Maybe that was your problem and it wasn't going to go away fat even after the fleas were gone. Hoping it is not food related.

You are one gorgeous girlcat!!

Oh, and I chose to eat the Protein preference dry food of the Royal Canin - wouldn't even taste the other 2. Surprised Mom as she thought I would be most interested in one of the other 2.

Hello Katie Isabella!

My what a lovely ladycat you are. :D

My Sooty was brown in the sunlight like you are... You could even see faint tabby stripes in his fur too - He came from a family of tabbies and white kittens - He was the only black and white kitten!

My first ever kitty was a tuxie like you! She had white chest white paws and black everywhere else, which means black and white kitties get extra cute points from me! :D

Terry's Tete-a-tete said...

You seem to be settling in nicely there Katie. I'll bet that sun puddles felt good. Sun puddles rare and not a lot of help up here in the cold.

SailorEdgar said...

I'm glad the allergy is under control and hope it stays under control. Your cinnamon undercoat does look especially lovely in the sun, and as I mentioned elsewhere, your beautiful eyes almost seem to glow from within. Congratulations on your sun puddle...we have had very few of those here. :-)

Glogirly and Katie said...

With a name like Katie I would have thought pink lace underwear. haha!

Hey, did you notice that you have a white girly mustache and I have a black one?!

Oh, Miss Katie, we're so sorry. We looked before we realized you're in your underwear. **cover eyes, blush, blush, Cotton elbows Percy in ribs for peeking**

Max the Quilt Cat said...

That's one beautiful sun puddle picture of you Katie... And I'm glad you showed us your underwear, cuz it is very beautiful. Am glad that you are getting used to your new digs and that you like it there. Your momma is one wonderful momma, so you are very lucky to have her and she's very lucky to have you.

Enjoy...

pawhugs, Max

Mariodacat said...

Katie - you has bootiful underware - just like the rest of you. M, of course, had to check mine after reading bout your purdy cinnamon underware, but I don't have purdy underware like you. sigh! Mine is all black - even in the sunshine. I'm so deprived!!! SMOOCH

Nerissa said...

I'm so glad the medication is working and your allergies aren't bothering you as much. Allergies are the pits... I hear. I don't have any but the peep has one to dust... not to me! Thanks be to goodness!!!

PS. You're looking very pretty in that sun puddle.

Whisppy said...

I hope you don't need another shot for the itchies! But if you need some help washing your beautiful furs, let me know and I'll come right over. *kiss*

Katie
I have cinnamon undertones to my coat too when I sit in the sun. Mom was looking at my coat today and she was finding all these white single furrs mixed in with all the black ones, are you like that too?

Junior, Orion and Sammy said...

I has allergies too. I has been sneezing alot and I have been pulling out my furs. Meowm says she is at her wit's end of what to do for me as she has tried a few different foods. I guess she will have to try some more.

Hope your allergies get better soon!

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

I apologize because I have been busy the past few days and couldn't come by so I probably should go back and read another post but I can tell you that if Katie has allergies she shouldn't be eating Wellness or Fancy Feast (please forgive me if I am being an idiot and commenting without proper information)

Cody eats Royal Canin rabbit (canned and dry) because of allergies....I think I need to go and read your other posts

The Chair Speaks said...
