Lots more questions again lately, so here it goes!
Yes Max, I do nap with the teddy bear. Mum has lots of teddy bears but this is the only one I sleep with. It is on mum's bed so she sleeps with it too. So at night sometimes, she is in the the bed, I jump up next to her, snuggle with the bear, make biscuits and PURRRRRRR.
Mr. Hendrix thought the bear was trying to smother me. No bear and I get along just fine.
Skittles was talking about a more natural diet. Mum is thinking that way too. But being an inside cat I can't get at fevvers and stuff. Plus, I am claw-less, so not sure how much stuff I would be able to catch. I might starve! Plus Skittles has a new admirer, SlyCat.
Parker asked if I found sheet mice when I was the bed lump under the sheet. I don't know what a sheet mouse is! Parker, can you tell me what you are talking about?
About the hanging toy, did I get it? NO. After mum took a few pictures, she moved the box so I couldn't get up that high. Sheesh, she is no fun sometimes.
One-eyed Jack asked about my glitter balls and if they are like tinsel. Well, the glitter is so much finer than tinsel. But my glitter balls have stayed together. So don't know if other kitties have had similar experience of them "shedding".
The new layout on the header, mum worked furry hard to get it just right. But that is with the home 'puter. She got a new 'puter at work and she can see 6 and 1/4 of me on the header. Anyway I look good!
Mum says my digestive output has look very nice for nearly a week now. The one thing she thinks I might have been doing? Getting into one of her plants. When I jumped into the big pot with the snake plant she moved that outside. But she had an aloe vera on top of a very tall stool. You guessed it. One morning she caught me jumping into the plant. Mum immediately picked me out of the plant and moved the plant into the little bathroom and shut the door. Then after that I started getting better. I will never tell if I was chomping on that plant!
She is furry happy and says I am acting like my old normal, sassy self. She likes that.
Note from mum: For Derby to jump into the aloe vera, it is a four foot jump from floor to the top of the flower pot. There is no room for him to land on the stool so he has to get into the plant itself. And if he missed, the whole thing would probably have tipped over. Even if he stretched out on his back legs he couldn't get at the plant at all. He hasn't messed with this plant, or any of the others, in the nearly two years he has lived here.
I had given away other plants that I knew would not be good to have around the house. The aloe spends the nice weather outside, so now, it is confined to the garage and most likely will just get tossed. I figure once the plant had attracted Derby, he will be back at it if it comes into the house again.
I figure he wqs either be just getting a small amount of plant or plant fluids to upset his digestive system, but not enough to really get to the toxic level. Maybe enough on his paws which he probably licked off. I finally put one and one and one, together over the weekend. My brain must have relaxed enough to connect what happened.
So he is back to eating the rest of his normal stuff and doing just fine. Thank goodness, I was getting worried that this was going to be a chronic condition to manage. At just over three years old, he should have a long life ahead of him.
Thanks to all for your support and get well wishes.
