Doozy of a Snoozy

Like every Kitties Blue cat before him, Sawyer has discovered the antique dough bowl. For whatever reason this is a favorite snoozing, bathing, looking out the window spot and has been featured in previous posts. We gave up years ago trying to reclaim the bowl for use by Dad Tom, the bread baker. And for a very long time we have been adding something comfy to snooze upon.


Sawyer takes over cat (dough) bowl.


Kitties who have outgrown the dough/cat bowl continue to stuff themselves in for a nap. It even has been occupied my Mauricio and Astrid together…now that was a bowlful. As you can see, Sawyer has not reached the point where he is overflowing. But he has definitely spread out atop of one of Mom Ellen’s (15 And Meowing) cat mats.

To see original cat, Skooter, as well as some others in the bowl, click here to go to the 2012 post, “The Cat Bowl.”

Cooper Murphy/Misty May Update

Under protest, Cooper Murphy had another visit with Dr. Neel yesterday. He does have a fever; though, not as high as the 105 he had on January 5. It was 103 this time. The conjunctiva in both eyes are infected this time. Staining showed no additional problems. He’s also sneezing this time. He got another anti-inflammatory injection and will be on oral meds and the teramyacin eye ointment again for another ten days.

We also discovered that the little giant stinker was playing fast and loose with the scale last time. He weighed in today at 18 1/2 pounds. That’s two more than his last visit and more what we expected then.

Misty May’s eye is greatly improved. She will remain on the ointment until she returns on Friday for a recheck of the ulcer.

Thanks for all the purrs, prayers and POTP you have been sending. With any luck, this will be the final chapter for the eye “icks.”

Sawyer, looks like you are a “dough boy”! MOL!!
Cooper Murphy, you weigh almost as much as Hemingway. You two are very big boys. Now just get rid of all those icky germs and bugs. You want your eyes bright and shining so you can see all the birdies and squirrels.

What a great bowl-as-cat-bed! Now, I’m going to be on the lookout for a squarish wooden bowl for our cat crew too!

Sawyer, your pictures are just downright adorable! I see why your Mom can’t resist taking the pictures – even if your nap might be disturbed. I do the same thing with my kitties!

Yep, bread bowls, sink bowls, ceramic bowls — doesn’t matter! If it’s a bowl and it’s accessible, it’s a kitty’s! LOL! Still praying for the kitties’ eyes to heal so this can be behind. Wow! if Cooper Murphy keeps on, he’s going to catch up to our Freckles (at 25 pounds)! Maybe it’s a ginger kitty thing!

Those pesky eye icks better get the hint and LEAVE! I know everyone there is tired of passing it around so maybe this will be the END of it – we sure hope so……that bowl on the table is a HOT SPOT indeed and I can see why. It’s got the perfect shape to start with but add in a nice cat blankie and it’s the TOP OF THE TOWN! Sawyer has figured that out……..he fits purrrfectly too!

Hugs, Teddy
