Tickled Tuesday

Mom's doing pretty good on my list. We've been going outside a lot, and she let me climb the peach tree. I get a great view of the backyard from up here. And last night I chased an opossum in our back yard! I was very brave and chased him onto the fence, in which he scurried along and into our neighbor's back yard. Then, after going inside, Kavan and I got some of the Coho salmon from Seattle. It was fabulous, but very rich, so we just got a little (yes I did share with my little brother).

And I won the Monty Q pose in Monty's great contest! Thank all of you who voted for me! You have excellent taste! And thanks for the great contest Monty!

Mom took Kavan to the vet yesterday. He's been off the Zithromax for about a week now. But he still has "ear issues". Although the infection is gone, and the perforation has healed, the eardrum in both ears is still a bit cloudy. The doc said if Kavan was a human toddler, he would get tubes in his ears! He is a little concerned about potential hearing loss, but so far Kavan hears fine. So Mom came home with more ear drops, that now he gets in both ears every other day. But he is much better, so much better he got scheduled for his hoo-ha-ectomy on September 11. While out for that, the doc will really clean his ears and check them closely.

Until then, he obviously feels good enough to pester me......

Congratulations on your win, Tara, it was very well deserved. Your MontyQ was very regal. :)

I am very impressed with your climbing abilities! We have no trees in our tiny yard, so I have never been able to try climbing one.

You are super brave to climb up so high in that tree.
I'm glad that your mom is working on the list, but it sounds like she has a long way to go yet.

concatulations on your big Q win! you did a great pose.

Hopefully this will make your beans feel better. Last year I got a nasty ear infection and had to have lotsa meds and wound up with 2 busted ear drums from my shaking my head. Mommy took me in for a deeeeeep cleaning (I took a long gas nap) and 2 weeks of drops and meds after that I was fine. This was an 8-10 week ordeal overall. The deep cleaning helped kick in the drops they think.
Anyway, I can hear the fridge door and a can of stinky goodness opening from the second floor, no joke. Purring for his quick recovery.

PS Have they suggested changing his food to something like "presecription hill" (that brand has an antiallergy type food)

PPS Tara, you are awesomely brave to chase a opossum all they way across the yard!

HRH Yao-Lin said...

Henry Helton said...

Oh how I wish I could climb a tree. If only I had claws and was allowed outside...

Marilyn MonREOW said...

Congratulations, Tara! You have a fabulous Monty-Q! Impressive, regal, and just gorgeous!

And I hope sweet Kavan will be feeling better soon. I wonder if anybody has told him he will soon be losing his, errr, walnuts, or if he will be getting a surprise?

Purrs and snuggles from Marilyn *giggle*

Wow, look at you in that tree. I haven't been in a tree since I was homeless. I do like having a home better, though.

Congratulations on the Q!
