On the mend

Psst...watch out for the big guy! He steps on cats!

Thanks for all the kind words. Syd is doing much better today. He slept in the bedroom all day with Sammi, but that's just a normal day in the life of those two. He's still limping, but he's moving around better than he did last night.

I managed to get a "big purr" out of him this morning though. That's a good sign. His "big purr" comes when he is the happiest and it sounds more like a pigeon cooing than a cat. It can be heard in the next county, and it can shake your very soul. The "big purr" is a good thing.

PS - All this kitty drama shouldn't dissuade you from checking out the latest review over at MovieGrenade! This one includes cold, hard personal facts about yours truly. Hot, right?

Cats have short memories.....as long as you can still work the can opener, they are going to be your buddy.

Lotus - I know, but I still feel rotten. I step gingerly now.

I love the sounds of pigeons.

Kat said...

That is the cutest picture ever. I'm so glad he's going to be ok. And if he's purring, he forgives you ;o)

:( oh, kitty drama. i'm glad he's doing much better -- you're right; you've been forgiven. what a pair those two -- do remind me a lot of mine.

I think Syd, being a cat, is going to milk all the attention you give him. I know mine would.

I'm glad he's on the mend.

I love the "big purr". Makes me almost as happy as the cat! Solicitor and I call the it "the motor purr."

4leaf - Smells like...victory.

Kat - they love each other...most of the time.

Madge - Last night he decided to fall asleep on my foot. The one that stepped on him, so yeah...I think he's forgiven me.

Elise - the motor purr, I love it.

TK - thanks.

Slyde - It's just because you're always underfoot.
