Cat Thursday: Another One in the Bath

Welcome to the weekly meme hosted by The True Book Addict that celebrates cats; their foibles and humorousness and the joy they bring. You can join in by posting a favorite LOL cat pic you made or came across, cat art or share with us pics of your own felines, then post your link up at The True Book Addict.






 Even despite her dunk in the bath the week before last, Gracie still likes to hang out in the bathtub now and then (as long as it is empty).



 Many thanks to everyone who sent prayers, good thoughts and well wishes to Parker.  He seems to be doing much better.  We have almost completely weaned him off of the appetite stimulant and he is taking his weekly injections like a pro.  Parker seems comfortable and happy, and, while not completely his old self, he is definitely making strides in that direction.  We head back to the veterinarian in another couple of weeks and we expect a good progress report at that time.

  1. You worry about your animals like you worry about your kids. I will keep my fingers crossed that your sweet furry baby has a full recovery!

    1. Sandy - I really do. And Parker's been with me so many years. I know he's older and his day will come. It just can't be any time soon if I have a say in it. :-)

  4. Yay for Parker!! The bath tub makes me laugh. Our Grizelda thinks she is a plumber, and even sleeps in the tub.

    1. McGuffy Ann - I don't know what it is about the tub, but both my cats enjoy exploring it. Maybe they hope to find water. That's too funny about your Grizelda, sleeping in the tub. :-)

  5. Cute :) My cat likes to hang out in the empty tub too. And she likes to stalk me when I'm taking a bath and gets all confused that I'm in there and it is full of water.

    1. Julie - Haha! Parker likes to be in the bathroom while my daughter is bathing. He'll even drink from the tub--brave cat. You never know when a two year old will decide she wants the cat to join her!

    1. Anna - Thank you! It really does. They can't talk to us about what's bothering them, so it's always part guessing game.

  9. So glad to hear Parker is feeling better. It always makes you feel tense when one is "off" in any way. I have an older horse, and he has been off this winter since losing his brother (the middle "child") suddenly in September. The other two have slowly been working out the new herd of two and it is hard to watch them struggle. Perhaps Parker is still feeling his way without his siblings. Grief takes us all awhile to work out.
    He and Gracie look so cute! We have a heated water bowl and if the water gets drank the neighbor cat will get in to warm up.

    1. Carla - Thank you! Our animals bond with our other animals too. It's something we always have to be mindful of when we lose a companion, I agree. I know Parker was affected--having Gracie around has helped tremendously. He was doing so much better there until he got so sick. But I'm sure it still affects him just as it does me.

      He's continuing to do well with the medication, including his injections.

  10. Glad that Parker is in recovery! Our Triad believe nothing is sacred, not even the toilet bowl.

    1. Jenclair - Haha! I imagine mine would feel the same way if we weren't sticklers for keeping the seat down. It was a habit we started when we first brought Riley home. I didn't want him drinking out of the toilet and then dripping all over the toilet seat, to be found by some unsuspecting user. LOL

  11. One of cats also loved the bath, empty or otherwise given the chance he'd be in it. Good news about Parker, I'm glad he's doing well

    1. Iliana - Thank you! We had a nice quiet weekend. I imagine most of our weekends will have to be that way for awhile until I'm all healed up. :-S
