Fangless Friday

Hehehe well, not quite fangless but definitely toofless - but I couldn't wait until Toofless Tuesday to post an update! Castle had to have FIVE back/side teefs removed!!! Poor boy! You see, after they scaled and polished them they found four more that were candidates for removal, in addition to the one he went in for. I guess this is what happens when you get old. I lost all mine when I was a baby cos i had a bad case of gingivitis so I know how Castle feels. Castle was all wobbly when he got home and a bit out of it, Meowmie took a photo of him looking spaced and will post it another time, he looks so funny! I missed him and meowed like crazy when he got back from seeing Ben vet.

Meowmie had fun serving up our breakfast this morning cos Castle is now only to eat soft foods for a week and I of course am on the dry food ONLY cos of my exclusion diet. Mum served up our bowls and we both went for each other's food - Meowmie then had to lock us in seperate rooms whilst we ate, but we both meowed for each other and wouldn't eat! After much to-ing and fro-ing Meowmie managed to get some breakfast down each of us - but it took 40 minutes of herding us around so Meowmie was late for work! Hahahahaha.

I'm doing OK on the diet - I am still being sick BUT not as frequently as before (not counting the food-only gorge-sicks which Meowmie classifies as different sicks to the mostly-liquidy sicks I was doing 4 or 5 hours after eating - too much info? sorry!). I am on this diet for 6 weeks - cos that is how long it will take to see if it makes a real difference apparently.

Changing the subject now cos that last one is not very nice, Yao-Lin tagged me for the Desktop MeMe. The top image is my Meowmie's work PC desktop, it is a picture of Maragret Thatcher receiving a gift of garlic from some garlic sellers in Budapest (knoblauch = garlic in German). Meowmie saw this picture above a garlic seller's stand in a market in Budapest and thought it was very fuuny. Can you see how Thatcher recoils at the garlic??? I wonder why...the second picture is the desktop on my Mac (Whose Mac, Stormie? - Meowmie) it is Castle's eye!





Upon receiving this tag, immediately perform a screen capture of your desktop.It is best that no icons be deleted before the screen capture so as to add to the element of fun. Here’s how you can do a screen capture:

1.Go to your desktop and press the Print Scrn key (located on the right side of the F12 key).

2.Open a graphics program (like Picture Manager, Paint, or Photoshop) and doing a Paste (CTRL + V). If you wish, you can “edit” the image before saving it.

3.Post the picture on your blog. You can also give a short explanation on the look of your desktop if you want. You can explain why you prefer such a look or why it is full of icons. Things like that.

4.Tag five of your friends and ask them to give you a Free View of their desktops as well. I tag: Pets Pictures and Tails, Tiger Lily, Latte, Samantha & Tigger

5.Add your name to the list of Free Viewers with a link pointing directly to your Desktop Free View post to promote it to succeeding participants.

Castle, I am very sorry you had to lose some of your teeths. I hate teeths. They ALWAYS cause problems. But on the positive side, your eye looks very beautiful on the desktop computer.

Have a happy weekend you two!

Poor Castle. I hope his mouth doesn't hurt him too much. I think it's funny that you both went for each other's food. I am glad that you aren't having the sick-ups as often. I love both your desktops.

Oh --- so sorry to hear that Castle has to have the toofs removed. Pumpy and I are on different diets, too, and the woman has to supervise us at every meal or else we sneak each other's food.
