Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mom doesn’t know I’m up here writing to everyone.  I think she’s taking a nap.  She got older so she gets tired more now.  Kind of like us!

Anyway, I wanted to give you kitties a lesson on how to really frustrate your mom when she’s trying to give you a pill.  Mom always brags about how mellow I am and how I just don’t get uptight about anything.  Well, if I’m going to have to take a pill, it’s going to be in my time and in my own way.  Mom learned that the hard way.

Last night she got home from work and she started trying to give me my pill.  I would not cooperate at all.  She kept trying and trying and I kept spitting it out.  This went on all night.  She even tried putting it in yogurt and ice cream but I ate all around it.  I could tell she was getting frustrated ‘cuz she kept mumbling to herself.

Four hours later I still didn’t have the pill inside me.  Mom decided to take a break and read her emails.  She set my pill on the computer desk in front of the monitor hoping it would give her inspiration.  Before long I jumped up on the computer desk, looked at her, walked over to the pill and took a sniff………….and then I just ate it all up.  Down it went into my tummy where it was supposed to be.  MOL!!!!  Mom just looked at me with her mouth open!!!

So now your lesson on frustration is done.  Oh, there’s another pill that has to go down me tonight.  I’m not sure what I’ll do this time!!!

Today was my big trip to the hospital.  I saw it on the calendar so when Mom tried being sneaky about it this morning, she wasn’t fooling me.  I played, “catch me if you can” thinking if I made Mom really late, they wouldn’t be able to do surgery.  It didn’t work.  I was over at the doctor’s house bright and early.  Even though they pretended to be super happy to see me, I was afraid something bad was going to happen.

What really scared me was when Mom left me.  She walked right out that door to her car and forgot to bring me with her!!!  The nerve!!

Well, even though it was a scary day for me, I was really good.  Here’s a picture of me when I was ready for surgery.  Notice that nobody has to hold me?  I’m always Mr. Mellow at the doctor’s house and they just love me.  Now my little brother is an entirely different story!

All Done

They gave me some stuff to go to sleep so I wouldn’t feel anything.  This is a picture of me off in dreamland.

Hemingway Ready for Surgery

I’m glad to see they had me all snuggled in.  They said I did really good through the whole procedure.

Hemingway after surgery

Here I am after surgery.  My eyes look a little droopy but they’re wide open now.  Mom was so happy to see me.  She said they took care of two teeth….one on each side.  At least I’m still balanced.  MOL!!!

I just wanted everyone to know that I’m doing great.  Thanks for all the prayers and good wishes.  Poor little Steinbeck was really confused since I was gone all day.  I don’t think he knows what happened yet.

Mom sends a big thanks to the doctor lady for taking pictures of me while I was there so I could share them on our blog.

Mom says the rain is good for the flowers so she put some around me.  I’m still not happy.

Mom let me out after supper tonight and I thought she was being so nice.  However, she started following me around.  I walked on the deck and she followed me.  I jumped down in the grass and she followed me.  What was she doing???  Next thing I knew, she had picked me up and was carrying me to the gate.  Now, she’ll tell you that’s not an easy thing for her to do.  I’m not exactly made of marshmallows.  Anyway, suddenly I was in the car and she was starting it!  What’s happening?

DSC_0295

Oh, this was not cool.  She took me to the doctor lady’s house!!!  Did I say I wanted to go there?  Why, Mom???  I don’t think I’ll speak to you for a few minutes.

As usual, I had to try and get all my floofiness into that little basket.  I even had to get my tail in there!

Mom, it’s sooooooooo humiliating!!!  Why don’t you get in this box and see how you feel?  Then the doctor lady told you that I weigh just a little under 22 pounds.  I didn’t want her to tell you!  Now I’m not speaking to her, either.

DSC_0303

What are you doing, doctor lady?  I told you I’m not speaking to you.  Do you want me to tell everyone how much you weigh?

DSC_0304

Mom, please don’t let her take me!  I heard her say something about shots.  I also heard you tell her that I should have a “manny” “petty”.  I don’t know what that is.  I know I’m a man cat and I’m you’re pet so I’m hoping it’s something good.  (Readers…….don’t let those humans fool you.  I had my claws all nice and sharp for wrestling with Steinbeck and now they’re gone.  I found out a “manny” “petty” means “goodbye claws”.

I finally got home safe and sound and took a nap.  I heard Mom talking about me having to go back in June for some dental work.  I didn’t like hearing that!  I hope they all forget!

From the Mom:  Hemingway was so good at the vet’s.  He is the most mellow cat around and the doctor said she wishes all her patients were like that.  We will have to have a tooth worked on and possibly extracted.  I’ll take him in early in the morning and then bring him home at night.  It’s the first time he’s had any surgery and of course Mom is worried.  For now, we’re just going to have cuddle time.

Mom took one of her favorite pictures of me and changed it all over the place.

Here’s what she started out with:

windowbox

I was keeping the dirt warm in the flower box on the garage.  I knew she wanted to plant some pretty flowers there.

Here’s what happened:

Humans sure have some crazy ideas!!  Mom thought it would be cute for me to wear her hat from work for the selfie today.  Believe it or not, that’s me under the hat!

Of course someone else had to get into the act, too!!!

Mom had to take it away from him before he put his “beaver impression” tooth marks all over it!

This is the picture Mom started with.  That’s a bird bath she has had for a lot of years and I consider it my personal drinking fountain!

Now here’s what she did with it.

She used LunaPic for all of her “playing”.  First she added the Fairy Art Effect and then she added the Water Filter.  Finally she added a frame and it’s ready to be hung in the museum!  MOL!!

Mom says I’m a night owl.  That has me confused.  My feet might fit a limb, if it was a really big one.  However, an owl has feathers and there’s no way anyone can call my fur feathers!  Maybe it’s my big eyes!

Mom also says my internal clock is in a different time zone.  How can something that’s insideinternal-clock of me be in another time zone from Mom and my outside body?  I find this all very confusing.  Just because I want to make sure that Mom wakes up in plenty of time to make sure we get breakfast, doesn’t mean my internal clock is broken.  By the way, what does an internal clock look like and where is it located?  I wonder if Steinbeck’s is the same as mine.

 

Then shleap-froge complained about me playing Leap Frog across her head last night.  I’m not green and I sure don’t look like this guy!!!  Maybe I was jumping back and forth across her head, but that doesn’t make me a frog!

 

 

For the life of me, I just can’t figure out humans?  Can any of you readers help me???

Oh, in case you were wondering,

dreaming

I got plenty of sleep so I don’t know what Mom was complaining about!!!
