Dear Whitey and Friends,
End of another week (or start of a new one). It’s Memorial Day Weekend so I have gone red, white and blue. Pretty dapper, don’t you think?
My head has always been a bit too big for my body. I was just made that way, but I’m cute, right? And then I’ve got that ear thing………..oh well.
I’ve been having a lot of new adventures since I have a happy home now. For one, I eat regularly and I eat cat food. Do you know that I used to just eat junk off the floor including bugs? Yuck.
I’m also getting really healthy. You know how I know that? I’ve been going to the vet. Never knew a vet before either. Imagine that. However….I’m not necessarily a fan of the vet.
Car rides are fun so I’m always ready to go. This particular car ride was less fun than usual.
It ended with me being put on a scale in the vet’s office. It showed I’m still a bit underweight but I’m working on that.
Then I got put in a room alone to wait. Wait? For what or for who?
Uh oh. This is not a good look on The Dapper Gent. The numbers were ticking away. Don’t they know our blood pressure goes up by just putting that thing on us? Turns out my blood pressure is purrfect!
This looks like a loving embrace, right? I do not even want to tell you what someone else was sticking into my other end at this very moment. But, the result was that my temperature was normal so I guess it had to be done.
My purrsonal physician came in to check my heart. When I was at Cat Depot I had what they call a heart murmur. That’s not good. But she kept listening and listening. The heart murmur is gone! She said I was anemic before and that may have caused it. All of the things that were wrong with me before are getting better now.
Oh Whitey, we need to work really hard to help all cats get homes and good care. I know that has always been your mission. Now that I’m working with you, we can both work really hard. Part of my mission will also be to rescue cats from hoarding homes.
Whitey, when they come at you with those clippers, just relax. If you fight, it takes longer. I just let them do it and it was over before I knew it.
The ladies were all really nice to me. I have never had this much care before. We want to make sure I’m healthy and strong before I go out onto the streets and get to work. The mighty paws left before me need to keep walking. I’m almost fully healed and able to take on the task.
In the meantime, I’m working on Facebook and have a lot of friends and fans. The legacy of Friends Like Me will go on and be stronger than ever.
I know you’ll help me. We can get all of our cat friends into loving homes.
For now though I need to get over the big adventure at the vet…..
Going to the vet ain’t for sissies!
Until next week,
Bow-Tie, The Dapper Gent
