Toby Vet Visit, Star Fish and Monday Mewviez


Hello furry friends...Toby here.  Remember how I gots my tail slammed on and had to get the tip amputated? That happened back in April.  You can reads story here: Toby's Tail. 

Well my tail am been bothering me somthin terrible since surgery. The end am bin hurting and twitching on its own... I tried chasing my tail every day to make it mind, but that not help at all... I even tried chewing fur on my back, but that just made a mess.  

So Auntie Katie and Dad Mike tooks me to the vet on Saturday.  The vet purr-scribed a neural pain reliever called gabapentin. (and shaved my messy furs) Auntie Katie gave me my first dose Saturday night and wow! My tail started behaving again!  I hads the bestest sleep!  I had another one last night.  The vet said pills are furry safe and I can has up to three doses a day if needed.  I may has to take this stuff likes furever... but if my tail behaves and nots bother me no more, then taking pills be worth it... besides they has nice flavor.

Now for Monday Mewvies. Auntie Katie found furry inspurrational mewvie bouts a guy helping others and no approval from anyones fur doing dat... him gets a different reward... Please watch. It am furry goods. (Subtitles in English -K)

You Can Be A Hero, Too



That's how Auntie Katie feels about helping us cats and sharing cats who need rescued, even if no one commented yesterday. Her would helps all the same.  Like the story about saving starfish. There am several versions adapted from The Star Thrower by Loren C. Eiseley.


One day an old man was walking along the beach. The low tide had filled the beach with thousands of stranded starfish, carried in by the sea and left behind.

He walked very carefully so not to step on the beautiful creatures. Since the starfish seemed to still be alive, the old man thought about picking up a few and returning them back to the water where they could resume their lives. He knew the starfish would die if left on the beach's dry sand. Yet, he couldn't possibly help them all, so he chose to do nothing and continued walking.

Soon afterward, the man came upon a young girl on the beach frantically throwing one starfish after another back into the sea. The old man stopped and asked the child, "What are you doing?"
"I'm saving the starfish," she replied.

"Stop wasting your time. There are too many! Your efforts won't matter. You can't save them all," argued the man. "You can’t even begin to make a difference."

Without hesitation, the child picked up another starfish and tossed the starfish back into the water... "I can make a difference for this one." 

The old man left and went home, deep in thought of what the young girl had said. The next morning, he returned to the beach and spent the day helping her throw starfish back in the sea.

No matter what... you can always makes a difference. One kitty (starfish) at a time.
