Thankful Thursday

I am dedicating this post to all my bloggie friends, you have all been incredible and I can't begin to express how thankful I am for your kind words and care. It is so touching *purr*, I want to headbutt all of you personally!

I am also very thankful to Momo and SS and Karl who sent this wonderful Reiki Cat picture, it made us smile so much, and touched our hearts...or maybe that was the Reiki Magic Rays touching our hearts!!! The Meezer in the pic looks a bit like me when I was a kitten...



I am also incredibly thankful that when Meowmie got home last night that I was able to eat and was much brighter than I was that morning. I ate some tinned 'junk' cat food, then Meowmie made herself a rotisserie chicken salad, cutting up some chicken for me and Castle to enjoy. Then when we had finished our plate of chicken, she ate her chicken salad and I sat RIGHT by her and looked at her pleadingly for some of her chicken too! I even stole some off her plate!!! (Meowmie - ummm, I confess, I might have helped Storm steal off my plate) This is my chicken face last night:



Towards bedtime I went quiet again but slept with Castle in Meowmie's room, on our bed. This morning I was quiet, but not as quiet as yesterday, and I ate a little, not a great amount though. Still, an improvement on yesterday, so we are thankful. Then I crawled into my Habitat bag for a chill-out again - but then Castle attacked me!!! He was mewling, raising his paw to my face and stuff and trying to get me! I think he was annoyed that I would not have a Mad Half Hour with him. Just before Meowmie left for work she gave me a periactin appetite stimulant and more opiate painkiller in case my quietness was caused by my feeling uncomfortable. I jumped up on the sofa and sat by her for a while and let her rub my cheeks, then I clambered on to my favourite cushion and let the opiates take over *SPACEY GRIN*

We are very pleased that I have not been physically sick since the chemo, this is a good thing but I haven't pooed for days! Meowmie will call Ben Vet later and ask his advice...I am sure something must be ready to come out by now! I'm not complaining though...this is THANKFUL THURSDAY after all! :)

Don't forget, it's my next big Milestone on May 4th - mine and Castle's Gotcha Day! Meowmie has found some kitten pictures of us which she is going to help me put on my bloggie!

EDIT - I almost forgot to do the charity Knock Knock today, here goes:

Knock! Knock!
Who's there?
Amnesia!
Amnesia who?
Oh, you got it too...

I love your "chicken face" Storm, that chicken will do you some good. It might be the opiate that is stopping you from having a poo.
Take care xx :)

Ramses said...

Ok the "chicken face" does it for me! I'm having my 5th Birthday this Saturday and have demanded eeer asked for lotsa chicken! So there will be plenty of chicken for all here and by the end of the day I'm hoping to be able to make my "full up on chicken" face! :)

We're all purring for you Storm, you can do it I'm sure of it - powered by chicken you're sure to do well! :)

The Furry Fighter said...

Thank you Jane about the poo-stopping opiate tip! My Meowmie was trying to remember whether opiates had this affect or not...If I eat again tonight and tomorrow morning she won't give me anymore, cos if I am eating I probably am not in pain...she'll also double check this strategy with Ben Vet! x

HRH Yao-Lin said...

your chicken face is divine stormie! How could your human refuse? Well, easy - it doesn't matter if she does because you will just steal the chicken anyway. haha. I think I might get choked up by your kitten pics you know but I can't wait to see them1 x

Sabrina, Sam and Simon said...

Hi Storm! We agree that the opiates may be causing the poo, or shall we say lack of poo problem, as this happened to momma when she was taking pain killers for her broken shoulder. We hope you continue to do well with your chemo, and it may sound kinda funny, but we will pray for poo, too! The picture collage Yao-Lin made for you is beautiful, and we can't wait to see your's and Castle's kitten pictures! Hang in there, sweet girl!
Love, purrs and headbutts,
Sabrina, Sam, Simon and Momma

I like when mom's help you steal stuff, that's the best 'cause you still feel like you hunted it on your own.

Stay strong!

Tiger Lily said...

Hahahahahahahahaha! That is a funny joke!

We are so glad you are able to eat more and not have sick ups. Mom says her people v-e-t gave her something to take to help her when she was so drugged up during her chemo treatments. We think our v-e-ts have something like that for us.
