Purrsey made it.


Now in case you don’t go around Googling my name I will let you know that if you did Google my name you would see that it hits on my blog and the posting that comes up is the one about the stupid cat we just got. Percy, rather Purrsey, made it to #4 if you use Theodore, #7 if you use Ted. This is the 1st time I have ever made it to a 1st page Google, or any other search for that matter, and it would have to be for my posting on a cat. It’s not that I don’t like cats [my God, I could not handle that kind of email] but they are just not my favorite pet. This one has now had all of his shots, been neutered and has recovered nicely which has caused him to stop spraying [YEA]. This picture contains a dirty sock and my wife would like you to know that it comes from our Grandson coming home from school, kicking his shoes off when he enters the house but then going back outside to play, sans shoes. If this sock is left at our house, then the next time he wears that sock it will be so white it will look ultra brand new.

The alert reader may notice a spelling change in the name of the cat from Percy to Purrsey. My wife and I just had a mini argument over that spelling when I asked her for the proper spelling and then accidentally misspelled it when I repeated it. She acted like everyone would know that P-u-r-r-s-e-y would be the proper spelling for Percy. I give you the simple fact that Purrsey shows up as a misspelling on my Microsoft Spell Check and Percy does not. I think I will leave this one alone now, just in case she reads my blog.

The picture now represents a mere $80, or so, of expenses we incurred on one of the early post Purrsey days. Turns out the Red things was money well spent as it ha eliminatined most of the cat odors except the spraying but a $125 vet’s visit stopped that with a surgical knife. Those readers who are not mathematically challenged may realize that we have exceeded $200, plus charges from the pound where the cat was rescued from. This may serve as a warning to those, like myself, who………[there is no way I can finish this sentence without getting into trouble].

Going forward with the “Pet” theme, I will ask you to recall my previous posting about Randy and his problem with wheels. My wife purchased a couple of episodes of “The Dog Whisperer” and one of those was about the wheel phobia thing. She gave these to my daughter and husband and they are reading up about how to do it. Should be interesting and I’ll keep you posted. A new blogger, to my blog, advanced an excellent way to train a new dog that was marking on everything in sight. He suggested training that dog with an old dog. Please read his post as it was funny and amazing.

As you may be aware, I have had a terrible time of trying to post photo's Then, today I received this email from my friend Cookie "Hey Mate....had some big time prob's myself a week or two ago...its Blogger. One of the things that did help was that I downloaded Mozilla Firefox...its fast, safe and good...." For the past week I have tried everything I could to load a photograph, including downloading "Picacs2" and "Hello". Nothing worked and then I followed Cookie's advice and Wallah. Thank you Cookie, I owe you one. Thanks to Cookie I am back. I have another quick Purrsey Post following.

Purrsey sure is a pretty thing!
I have a neighbor cat that likes to spray my front door! I'd sure like to get ahold of him and scissor his sprayer!!

Thank you guys for posting. Phyllis, I have sympathy with your problem We have three cats and a couple of skunks that roam the area and are always trying to out spray the other. If I leave my pickup window down, overnight, guess what they do! I have been threatning to put out cat traps for them but I noticed that if I keep my windows rolled up the problem goes away. He says you can't teach an old dog.........I don't think that helps with your problem and scissoring is probably the right solution but in lieu of that, maybe they make a spray for the problem.

Funny enough, when I first pulled up this posting the first thing that I thought was, "Oh no, Dad took a picture of Sam's dirty sock!" He is harder on socks than any other kid I know!
