Day in the Life of … Mia!

6.30am – Mummy’s radio alarm starts so I go and sit on her chest and wait for her to wake up
7.30am – Mummy’s radio stops and she’s still asleep and now I’m hungry so I’ll go do a pooh and hopefully the smell will wake her up
8.30am – Mummy finally gets out of bed! She goes to the toilet so I go and sit in the potty next to her and do a wee too!
8.45am – Breakfast time… only I didn’t want that so I’ll sit and cry
9am – Milk time… she stopped buying lactofree and brought home this awful soya stuff, so no I won’t be drinking that
10am – Time for a brush apparently, how’s about I hold the brush for you mummy and brush your hair?
11am – Mummy is doing some work on the computer so I think I’ll go sit on her keyboard and help her
12pm – Mummy’s lunchtime, wonder what she’s having and if I can share, I’ll cry and ask her
12.15pm – This sandwich is good!
12.30pm – It’s naptime, but it’s not the same without mummy
1.30pm – Mummy wants a rest so we can snooze together
3pm – Mummy’s left me to go to work :( I’m bereft!
3.30pm – So bored, think I’ll pounce on Gracey, it’s all her fault after all
6pm – Michelle is here! She’s my cat sitter, she loves to play with me, must be tea time
6.30pm – Michelle has gone, she’s locked us out of the living room now, bored again, think I’ll go bite Gracey
10pm – Getting sleepy now, really miss mummy :(
10.30pm – Mummy is home!! So happy I’m going to run up and down the stairs for the next hour
11pm – Mummy keeps getting cross so at me so I’m going to go climb the wall
11.30pm – Mummy’s climbed into bed, she’s warm so I think I’ll go lie next to her
12am – Zzzzzz

The List

In which I see the vet more than the doctor…

I’ve visited the vets more times in the past four months than I have in the last 12 years!

I must admit with Bob and Juney I was very lax, unless their legs were hanging off they were left to fend for themselves and they’ve been quite healthy with it never had any health problems, fleas or worms.

When I got Mia in October i made the decision to update Bobs vaccinations. Within weeks Bob had weight loss, was drinking more, had fleas and worms. What an utter nightmare!

Mia had her kitten check then was booked in for her spaying.

Then last week I noticed her bottom lip was pink which turned red then blistery, despite salt water washes. So I made a vets appointment as Dr Google came up with anything from allergies to herpes!

The vet couldn’t be sure what had caused it but little miss was given an antibiotic injection (less stress for mum and Mia than tablets!)

I can happily say that she’s looking much better a week on!

So yes after many visits to the vets, we are now on first name terms and I am so pleased I signed Mia up for the VIP plan; a care plan includes micro-chipping, monthly flea and worm treatment and 10% off all treatments and drugs for £12.99 a month!!! Yeesh!

Cat Update: Mia

My darling Mia is now 7 months old and whilst she still seems titchy to me she is growing steadily!  She’s a total beast, she climbs my anaglypta wallpaper, she sits on my keyboard when I’m trying to play computer games and follows me around the house endlessly.

She had her bits chopped on the 23rd December (Merry Christmas Mia…!) and the fur on her tummy is starting to grow back.

Her breeder had her on Royal Canin Persian Kitten and Whiskas Kitten food so I stocked up in anticipation but she never took to the Whiskas so I tried a few little tins and we’ve landed upon Gourmet Gold Double Delicacies or Pate that she seems to enjoy.  She’s a total baby and really enjoys her milk (she was still taking mummy-milk when I picked her up at 5 months!) and I buy Lactofree milk for her (spoilt princess!)

Her absolute favourite toy in the world is a beady toy on a stick with feathers, she goes absolutely insane for it!  She cries when I’m in the kitchen and wants to know what I’m doing so I’ve taken to sticking her in the laundry basket with some toys so she’s at head height and can see what I’m doing.
