4-20-10 – Maura & the Bookworms.

Jump to comments

I shall be leaving in a little while to drop Maura off at the vet so that they can get a fecal sample and either declare her all cured and ready to be released (slowly) into the general population, which is what I hope will happen – or that she’ll need another round of medication.

“They’re gonna take a sample of what from my where, now?”

The last few nights, when Fred and I have gone in to hang out with Maura before we go to bed, Fred has let Jake into the room. Oh, how Jake wants to be best friends with Maura in the WORST way. He tries to rub up against her, he tries to play with her. She’s a little put off by his friendly fervor, but she’ll sit and watch him play. She had to put him in his place a few times by raising a threatening paw. She was like “You’re in MY home, boy. Don’t make me mess you up!”

Fingers crossed that she can be released into the house to play with the other cats! I’ll let you know, of course.

I’m not quite sure what Corbett was doing here – looking at Jake or Elwood and trying to decide if he wanted to climb into the cat bed with him, I think.

Oh, do they love the cords hanging from the blinds over my desk.

They’ll bat at them for HOURS.

They bite on the ends of the cords.

Yet somehow, the cords always escape. Stupid cords.

Miz Poo. Still not a fan of kittens, but she hasn’t smacked one in the last ten minutes. I consider that progress!

  1. Aww Maura!! How I would dearly love to give her a forever home! She really is a character! I hope her vet’s trip go ok!

    And the Bookworms are just adorable as always – I love how Corbett (?)is fascinated by the cords! Look at that little mouth!!

    Miss Poo looks very formidable in a cute way!

    Take care

  2. Jake and Maura sitting in a tree! Ok, maybe not but it sounds like they could be good friends at least! We hope the vet news is good!

    And it is so cute that they play with the cords – my cats love the ones we have too. I just wish that love didn’t mean crashing into the blinds and breaking them!

    And that is great that Miz Poo is at least tolerating the kittens – well, at least for that 10 minutes!!

  3. Is it just me or does Corbett suddenly seem so much more mature… *sigh* blink and they’re grown. Soooo cute!

    Maura, honey, you wouldn’t believe what the the hooman doctor does to lady beans, each and every year. It’s for our own good, and this is for yours, dear.

  4. I hope Maura checks out OK at the vet. What a sweet face! Sorry it’s taken me so long to comment on your lovely site!
    My parents not-so-jokingly threaten to put a no-pet clause into their will as they fear my sister and I will turn it into an animal refuge (we hadn’t thought of it until they mentioned it….). What wonderful work you do! That’s funny about them loving your hubby though he likely does not as much of the work you do! That’s the way it goes eh? Perhaps they associate you with the V-E-T! LOL Miz Poo sounds like quite the character! LOL
