It is nearly 18 months since I was at the animal shelter and when they came to visit I chose mum and pop to be my family and they brought me home with them and made me very welcome. I have been really happy here and know I made a good choice 'cos no cat could be loved more than I am. I sleep on mum's lap whenever I get the chance and sleep on pop's bed every night (unless it is very hot and then I sleep on mum's bed as that is under the overhead fan. After all I am a cat and cats are pretty canny creatures).
The other day I heard mum and pop talking about me so I pricked up my ears without letting them know I was listening. I felt so proud 'cos mum said she I had brought so much happiness into their lives since their other wee cat has gone to the rainbow bridge and pop agreed wholeheartedly with her. I even heard mum say what an obedient cat I am and I do try to come when one of them calls me, especially mum, as I know it makes them happy.
I try and stay near them as much as I can although I do sometimes have to go and inspect the back garden and makes sure all is well out there. I prefer it though when one or both of them are out there too, except when pop is using the garden hose and then I take off. It seems the three of us were all meant to be together.
May be back another day so I can let you know how things are going here.
MY TUESDAY CHAT:
Now it's my turn. On Sunday afternoon we drove down to Baldivis to help #2 great-granddaughter celebrate her 8th birthday. The usual family gathering with nibbles and then an icecream birthday cake with 8 candles. The usual fun watching gifts being opened. I was fortunate that my granddaughter had messaged me with suggestions for gifts and Phil was able to find 3 of the suggested 4 (the other was not in stock) and I had already bought 2 books so felt that she would be happy with them. She loved all the presents she received and she and her little sister proceeded to have fun with the little toy 'mice' and their mouse house/trail. Just another wonderful family get-together which we both enjoy so much. Next family birthday is great-granddaughter #3 on 26th April. She will be 4 and is not at kindy.
I am to have a follow up blood test as it seems to get accurate results I need fast (I was told last time that wasn't necessary) and also no caffeine for two weeks nor can I take my anti-depressant medication for two weeks. It is a very low dose anyway but best to follow instructions. I believe it has helped relieve some of the minor aches and pains so hopefully won't come back with a vengeance ass the major aches and pains are enough to put up with at present.
The previous test showed up a 'condition' (a possible growth on an adrenal gland) I may or not have so hopefully this test will be more accurate. It is not terribly serious and could be one reason why I have episodic attacks of high blood pressure. Looking forward to seeing the results in a few weeks. Wish me luck. Life is never dull at my age. (*:*)
