Throwback Thursday – Mini me on a Christmas Tree

What a crazy year 2020 has been but it’s all in our hindsight now, right where it belongs thank goodness. I know there’s been a lot of confusion around the amount of time the humans have been home compared to, well, ever. At times I had to hide from all their attention. It could get a little overwhelming but I tried to tell them not to take it purrsonally. On the other paw, they had me meowing out loud with some of the jokes and memes they shared about how others have been experiencing it. I think we bonded more from that and was relieved to know we weren’t the only ones. It’s good to find the humour in life.

Remember in my last few posts during our summer boat cruise I had mentioned that I had to go on a special diet? Yes I am still on it and I’m happy to report my situation has improved. I’m a little embarrassed to meow about it but my number 2 litter box business had become consistently runny. A trip to my vet revealed that I “could have” irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), or worse, pancreatitis, but the only way to know would be to get a cat scan. We don’t have pet insurance and that was going to be expensive, so the alternative was to change my food and see what happens. So now I’m eating a novel protein of duck and/or venison meat from specialty pet food stores. No more fancy feast fo meow, but I still get some prawns and crab now and then.

Also do you remember a post I made from a few years back about a painting of meow as a kitten? Well my human artist furiend Lorraine Yigit has done it again: my human commissioned her to put it on a 6″ ball. I am so happy to reveal my new Christmas tree ornament! It’s so good I’m going to get a second one of meow made for next year. Many of my furiends have one of themselves, and maybe you can get one too. What a great keepsake for the humans.

It’s getting closer to midnight now so that means it’s time for a catnap before the humans open their bubbly water and get noisy. I would like to wish you all a healthy & Happy Mew Year! Above all, remember to be safe, be calm, and be kind to each other.

Paw paw for now! =^,,^=

Throwback Thursday – Squirreled away in Squirrel Cove

In Squirrel Cove, Cortes IslandLast year I was either too busy eating prawns and sleeping, or out of internet range to post about our adventures and if I don’t post about it soon, then the moment is lost. The humans say I have the attention span of a squirrel!  Well, I have something to say about that….

It was this time last year that we were in Squirrel Cove and we are again today. I don’t know why it’s called Squirrel Cove, but it is. This photo is from 2017 when there were a lot of fires burning in BC and the skies were full of smoke.

So far we’ve been to Pender Harbour and stayed at the dock for the long weekend, then to Prideaux Haven in Desolation Sound with 6 other boats for a couple of days. The weather was purrfect for the humans to swim and float around in water they say is the warmest north of Mexico.

My human dad has been trying his hardest to catch me a lot of prawns but so far this time he hasn’t been as successful as usual. Oh well, it might be for the best. I had a vet checkup a couple of weeks ago and I’m on a bit of a restricted diet and we don’t know yet if prawns are ok or not. More on that in another post.

Yesterday the weather was almost too hot but then became a tad unsettled at night and it rained. It’s sunny today but windy and supposed to rain again tomorrow. Then get nice again. Tomorrow we will break away from the group and go to Campbell River to meet some other humans. I’m just along for the ride, and the prawns.

Paw paw for now =^,,^=
