Winner of Nellie's Finish the Sentence Game

Kitties, how cute is this:


This past week, I entered Nellie's Finish the Sentence game #22 and was the very first entry.     The sentence to be completed was "Hot days are...." so I thought immediately of "Hot Days are Lazy Days".   Truth be told, around here ALL days are lazy days, but hot days are definitely the MOST lazy ones.     I never ever thought my entry would be picked by randomizer, because it was the first one.    But it WAS!

Don't you love the picture?    Aren't those back feet the best, and the tabby W on my head?  

Thanks so much Nellie and Mom for my super duper cartoon.

If you have not ever entered the weekly contest, head on over to Nellie's blog and be sure to enter week #23!!

Somewhat Uneasy Sunday

Hi, kitties.     Sorry we have been so limited in commenting this week.

Dad is still involved in painting, and I do like to lie on the canvas drop cloths he uses to protect the rugs and furniture from his splatterings.      As you can see here:


Kitties, I have some unsettling news, though with some of the things other pets and humans are facing, it is not that big of a deal.      Mom has been noticing that I seemed thinner, even in spite of having a good appetite.      She thought there was a chance I had diabetes.    So on Wednesday I was hauled off to the vet and they stole some blood from my arm to do their tests.   They checked the glucose right away and told the humans it was normal.       However, the test results showed that I was mildly hyperthyroid.   The vet had also commented on my heart being faster than normal, but said it could have been from just being there.    Seems not so, as that is a symptom of hyperthyroidism too.

I know many kitties have this, and my humans went through it with Audrey, whose T4 level was much higher.      So they are going to be trying to get me to take some medicine for it.   Wish us all luck!

Sunday Selfie


Sorry for the slight blur, but I only took one shot so this is all I have for selfies today.

I wanted to say a little bit about Wednesday's Wordless post.   I do enjoy being on the deck and often look in that direction - Dad thinks I am watching for chipmunks.     But I also look down through other parts of the railing uprights.

But what I was really trying to show you was how nicely Dad had arranged the beach umbrella to provide me with shade.    I don't like the very bright sun outside, but with a bit of shade, and a nice bit of yellow towel for my tush, life is good.

Today as usual,  I am joining the kitties blue at The Cat on My Head for today's blog hop.

Sunday Selfie/Assistant Position

Really, my assistant has been slacking off beyond reasonable.   Spitty was advertising for a new assistant, and I think I need to as well.     Occasional Sunday posts just doesn't cut it.

I am joining the Kitties Blue at The Cat on My Head for Selfie Sunday.    Mom got this picture yesterday as I was on the couch, angling for her to pick me up and put me over her shoulder.

Belated Happy Independence Day!!
