Slinky The Grey Cat's Still Here & Food Dude Recovery Report




Well, here's Slinky the Grey Cat. Still here. I found the food dish where she is being fed in MY backyard. She's always at the back door, whining to come in. Nope. No way.


We discovered that Slinky's owners now have a bird in their house. We can see it flying around when they are not home. So I guess they've decided Slinky can live outside because they have that bird flying around inside. That is not very nice! I do not like Slinky but he has a house of his own and his people should take care of him. I guess they got tired of him and got a bird. But if that bird is flying around the house all day, well I guess there's quite a bit of clean up to do later on.


Also, the Food Dude had serious surgery last week and was in the hospital for 5 days. That's a follow up to the problems he had over the last year, when so many cats and people purred for him. The surgery was a success but Food Dude also retired from a job he had for 25 years - public defender - a couple of days before the surgery. He's home being cared for by Food Lady, and by me! Here you can see me keeping him warm and making a funny face for him so he can laugh. When Food Dude needs extra love, we read the comments you all sent to him earlier in the year when he was very sick.
Make a funny face for someone or cat you love so that they know how you feel!

Halloween, We're sorry that the Food Dude had to go to hospital again, but we're glad that he got the help he needed. It's a good thing that he's got you and the Food Lady to look after him now. It's nice of you and your family to give Slinky some food and a place to go now that she's been kicked outside. It doesn't seem very fair for her to be kicked outside so that bird can fly (and leave little messages) inside. Hope things get better for Slinky at home. Sending healing purrs and purrayers to your Food Dude so he keeps getting better, and can enjoy his retirement,

{{{hugs}}}

Hi there Halloween!! Purrs to your Food Dude!! We hope he makes a fast recovery. I am sure your purrs help greatly!

That is so sad about Slinky! Those people must be weird. Who lets a bird fly around all day in the house? What a mess that would be!!

Things are still snowy over here in the woods. Pretty sick of white I must say.

Purrs Goldie

It's sad that Slinky Cat's owners don't take good care of her. We hope that bird leaves those owners lots of "presents" when it is flying around.

momsbusy said...

it is good to hear that the food dude is at home recovering and that you are taking exceptional care of him (as only a cat can). poor slinky - put out of his house. his beans need to learn responsibility. perhaps they think you are going to adopt slinky. we will keep your food dude in our purrayers.

We're hoping things get better soon for both your Food Dude and for Slinky. Make sure you take good care of your human dad and give him lots of comforting and affection... dudes like that a lot.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Oh, not more surgery for Food Dude! We hope he recovers quickly.

And we agree. Your neighbor isn't very kind if she put her indoor cat outside to let a bird fly free inside. No wonder Slinky cries to come in.

Sweet Praline said...

Why would people send the kitty outside and allow the fev-ver creature fly around?

Purrs to the Food Dude!

Poor Slinky! We had the same situation with Starla, except it was a dog instead of a bird. I hope that bird gives them a lot of nasty things. Make sure your humans pet Slinky a lot to let her know that not all humans are like hers. That way, she can still be socialized and won't turn feral.

Purrs fur yoor dad, we hope he's feeling lots better. Why are alla dem cats in yoor yard? Yoo should haf yoor mom do what ours did. She put notes on alla da naybors doors dat sed dat she would be doing TNR in da nayborhood and any "stray" dat showed up wifout tags would be nootered and taken to da shelter to be put up fur adoption. She did catch about three wif tags and returned dem to der homes (and warned da beans about letting dem wander) she got two wif micro-chips but one was 'parently 'bandoned cuz da information din't work (he lives wif our bean sifur now) and about seven dat ended up being 'dopted out to other beans including some of our naybors. Sadie sez she doesn't think Rocky will be coming to visit, he's spending most of his time sleeping on da placemat...

Bendrix would like to come over and do some serious damage to those mean beans who dumped Slinky off. Maybe your beans could put a big "dog house" outside for Slinky to take cover in. That way he doesn't want to come inside so much cause he'll have shelter. I hope that bird poops all over those mean neighbors.

Your poor daddy! I'm glad the surgery went well last week (and last year) and he is home safe and sound where you can care for him. There is no care like kitty care! That is a silly face. I'm sure your bring your daddy much joy.

We are purring and purring for him to get all better right away!!

Buying memory is such a time consuming process... You have to search online for prices, filter through which ones are genuine, visit a bunch of stores,compare prices, finally buy your memory, and then hope that the price doesn't drop in the next two weeks or so.

I've been done in by some ridiculous price drops in the past... especially this one time when I bought a Micro SD for my DS flashcard at what I thought was a bargain price, only to later see that it fell by $5 in a week's time.

The effects are gradual and the result will vary for each user. However, further review show that most users experience benefits within the first week. In the first month you can expect erections that stay longer than usual and your penile may even start to become wider. penis enlargement pills - http://www.cucumaerot.com
