Friday cat - Wyatt Urp needs a bigger tent

Alex has been feeling a little better. He gets a steroid pill every other day, and is now eating dry food again and even getting his crazy hours. They're not as wild as they were before. He had a habit of leaping up on the door frame and hanging there with his claws stuck in the wood with a King Kong look on his face. If cats could roar!!! Now he just acts like he might take a notion to climb it, but he's still getting more playful and ornery (par for the course).

He still has a really gurgly belly and belchy hiccups. That will go on for the rest of his life. See these previous posts on Alex's tummy troubles. (1) and (2). And he throws up about every week, still less often than was always typical for him but more violently and with less warning. All I can say is... I love tile floors.

Here's a locally-made product (they don't use the phrase "Keep Austin Weird" for nothing) that we could really use around here. It's the "Cat Vomit Tent". It even has the Spanish on the other side in case you're dealing with los gatos.

Oh, do I ever need a few of these tents! I have a habit of marking these 'spots' with paper towels as a warning to others and me (ever forgetful) until I can 'get to them' .

was browsing a recipe site this morning and came across this in the Extraterrestial and Bizarre Recipes Category:

**********************

Title: CHUNKY CAT BARF

Yield: 6 servings

1 lg Spaghetti Squash
8 oz Cottage Cheese
16 oz Mozzarella (grated)
8 oz Parmesan (grated)
1 qt Spaghetti sauce (w/peppers)

Cook squash. Fork out insides into a giant cassarole dish.
Add cottage cheese, half of the mozzerella and parmesan, sauce.
Mix it until it looks like it's name.
Top with remaining cheese.

a rose by any other name...
I could use the doggie version of those tents -- bless him, Scoots isn't just cat sized, he has other kitty attributes.
