The Big Piney Woods Cats

Tuesday, October 03, 2006


If I look at Momma too much, my eyes go all funny looking, like her's. Most of the time I snuggle and purr on her.

Thanks to all you guys who stopped by and visited with us, purred for Momma, and visited with Mistrie. She had so much fun with you and is looking forward to seeing more of Precious. (Momma is going to introduce them when she can see better.) Precious is still in the bedroom, very lonesome because she won't come out in the cabin. (Probably because I growl and hiss.)

Momma says her eye will remain dilated for 10 days (the drops were very powerful according to the nurse) so her use is pretty limited; that, and her being very nearsighted since she was a little wafer. She wore hard contacts and is now going to go back to glasses, but has to wait to be fitted for at least three weeks (the good eye.) The corrected eye can take 2 to 3 months.

    Maybe you can lend your mom your sight? Like a seeing eye cat? That way she doesn't have to have her eyes open all the time.

    So glad to hear the worst is over and your Mom is on the road to recovery. Mittens, remember Precious needs a home and a family that loves her. Be patient with her and try not to hiss!

    Keep up the good nursing jobs that you all have been doing. The CalicoMom has to still take is easy, we don't want her to have any problems.

    Purrs to all the ladies of The Big Piney Woods.

    It was good to see all of yall, Mittens! Gree had a really good time with Mistrie too. I bet once Precious and Mistrie get used to each other, they'll enjoy havin a furriend to snuggle with when it's cold. Gree says she doesn't blame Precious for wanting to live outside. I don't see the appeal, but as don't try to take me with them it's ok. hehehe Purrs and headbutts to everyone. We're glad your Mom's eye is healing. Just too bad it's not as fast as she'd like!

    Thank you for the update, Mittens. Your poor momma! Dilated eyes are tough enough to deal with when they last a few hours - not days!!

    Keep taking good care of her.
