Happy New Year Everyone!

Ok so I'm a few days late...
Now where did I leave off?
Oh ya, prior to Christmas, I reported that Moki was sick once again...
Well I'm happy to report that he is doing much better now! Since returning from Gold Beach Moki has been both eating and drinking on his own. He's been coughing and recently had a strange bout of blood in his stool, but the blood is gone now, and the Tamiflu seems to be helping to get the cough under control...

Now in regards to Mini Munch...
Mini Munch has taken quite well to her new life as an exclusively indoor cat. Mini Munch has always been kind of a skinny cat, and for years I tried to put weight on her, but her active outdoor lifestyle always allowed her to burn off calories so quickly that no matter how much she ate, she remained super skinny. Well that's changing now. Since becoming an indoor only cat, Mini Munch has finally put on enough weight to allow her to look like a normal, healthy, cat for her size. Despite being indoors she is still very active, so I am not quite worried about her eating too much. She loves to rip up and down the stairs, jump on an off furniture, and tear up her scratching post like there's no tomorrow, so she's still getting exercise abound...

Happy New Year! You both look wonderful! Moki, we think that little vacation did wonders for you.

Maybe Moki just needed a change of scenery? I'm glad to know he's doing much better! Good for Mini Munch, adjusting to being indoors-only - some cats have a hard time with that. My human wishes I would put on a pound or so, but I'm already an indoors-only kitty, so that won't work on me!

That's it Moki fella, just the ticket, getting better again! Yay! Glad that Minimunch is gaining some padding too. Indoors must really suit her.

Crystal and the Gang, thank you so much for your kind words of comfort to us on the loss of our darling Angel. They helped us a great deal. We miss her so much.
