Our Secret Paws Gift is here!

China Cat and I received our Secret Paws gift! 
The doorbell rang and I had to run and hide under the bed because the doorbell means someone might come in my house. But no one came in so I carefully made my way back to the living room.
There was a big box and it was just for us! I was sad when my Food Lady said that we couldn't open it up right away. She said that we have to wait until it's Christmas. I am going to guard it until it's Christmas!
China Cat and I kept watching the box and now today is Christmas Eve. Hooray! That means tomorrow is Christmas and we get to open the big box!

I think we should have been able to open it as soon as it arrived...

My tent was warmish!

China Cat & I wanted to go out and spend a nice day in the porch. We thought that it looked like it would be a warmish kind of day. We were mistaken...
I had to go inside my tent since it started getting colder and windier.
But I still had a fine nap in my tent before going in for some lunch!
I hope that everyone else had a good day today, too!

I hope that there are every so many other cats purring along with me! I'm sure there will be as cats are definitely peace loving creatures!
I believe that I will go take a very peaceful nap now!

Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July!
Here I was in my current favorite sleeping spot on the end of the couch. I like to be there so I can watch my Food Lady and see if she goes into the kitchen. Well, wasn't I surprised when she came over and put some stuff on me. Very festive stuff, I might add!
Wait a minute, I think that stuff just might be the cape and hat that my Food Lady tried to put on China Cat!
I decided to ignore it and see if it would go away... It didn't go away so I turned around and pulled it off my side. I didn't need a blanket on me in the air conditioned house! What was my Food Lady thinking??? Hmmm, maybe it's a cat toy for me. The star has little blue ribbons around it. Cat toys sometimes have ribbons... Woo Hoo - I gave it the bitey!
If my Food Lady thought that she was dressing me up she was sadly mistaken, indeed!

Belated International Box Day

Well, it seems that I completely missed International Box Day last Thursday. I had my picture ready.... I was in a box..... but no upload to my blog.... I figured that everyone would still like to see me in my box so I persevered until my Cat in a Box picture was fully uploaded for your viewing pleasure!~~~~~
Can you see my most excellent fangs
as I looked up to see my Food Lady???
Maggy and Zoey from Zoolatry had an excellent International Box Day post which you can see right here if you missed it a few days ago!

Wordy Wednesday Challenge 2011

It's time for the Wordy Wednesday Challenge 2011!I am Willow and I am Very Vocal!
I like to talk a lot,
especially when my food bowl is empty.
I sit by my bowls and meow, meow, meow!
My Big Janitor Dad says it drives him crazy
but my Food Lady thinks I am adorable
which is good because she feeds me!
I want to thank Ann from Zoolatry and Judi from Sam, Andy and Shelly's Place for creating so many beautiful graphics for today! And everyone should head on over to the Cat Blogosphere for the links of all the participants! I'm heading over there now!

Mardi Gras Time

My Food Lady said that I would be able to dress up for Mardi Gras today without actually having to wear a costume. So I told her that would be OK with me but do I still get some feathers to play with? She said that she would play with feathers with me after she made my picture! I love to play with feathers!

Whew on Wednesday

First, I want to thank everyone so much for all the purrs and prayers for me.
CB purrs are the best! I am feeling better today!
I had to go to the v-e-t on Monday afternoon because I still wasn't eating very much and I threw up a couple of times - ewwwwww, I hate doing that! My Food Lady was very worried about me and kept hugging me and kissing me.
I was sleeping in bed when my Food Lady came in to see me again. Much to my chagrin she picked me up and pushed me into the dreaded PTU! She noticed that I just barely fit in there now - I think that it's because I am a very tall cat. I howled for the 15 minutes it took to drive to my v-e-t but I was very quiet when we went inside. I was glad that there weren't any dogs in the waiting room. In fact, I was the only one there! My Food Lady and I went into a little room and a nice lady came in and talked with my Food Lady about my not eating problem. I just nervously sat in the PTU.
The nice lady then tried to pull me out of the PTU. She had to turn it up on it's side to get me out. Once I was in there I didn't want to come out. She weighed me and I found out that I now weigh 15 pounds. I don't think that is so big - like I mentioned, I am a tall cat! After she let me off the scale, I got into the sink and snuggled over against the side of it. I'm not looking at you right now, Food Lady! Then my v-et came in to see him. He seemed very nice until I had to come out of the sink and he took my temperature. I had to growl a little bit at that! He poked and prodded me all over and said he would need some parts of me for testing! I didn't like the sound of that at all. He had the nice lady take me into another room without my Food Lady. She stole my blood from me and squeezed my tummy for more samples. I hated that and my Food Lady heard me howling. I know she didn't want me to be there because she was crying. She was very worried about me. After giving me some sub-q fluids and a nutritional thing, they finally gave me back to my Food Lady and she took me home.
We had to wait until 6:00 last night to find out what was wrong with me. My v-e-t said that there was some very good news; I don't have diabetes! But he said I have to lose 3 pounds. My bloodwork was pretty good except my pancreas levels were a little bit high. He said he will call my Food Lady next week to check up on me. And he told me that I shouldn't have any more rotisserie chicken! I love rotisserie chicken but I hate going to the v-e-t so I'll try not to beg too much!
When I got home, I went to bed and China Cat was waiting for me. She was worried when my Food Lady took me away in the PTU, after all I'm still her "kitten" and will always be. See, she even put her paw on my back to make me feel better!
Today I'm going to find sunspots to sleep in and hopefully get all better! We all truly appreciate everyone sending over so many purrs and prayers!

Purrs for Willow

Please send purrs over to Willow. Tomorrow is her 7th birthday and today she hasn’t wanted to eat or drink very much. I’m very worried tonight as she loves to eat. She was fine before this suddenly happened. Please pray for her.

I watched my Food Lady

On Wednesday I showed you a picture of me up on top of the refrigerator watching something. As a Wordless Wednesday I couldn't tell you what I was watching! But now I can explain what I was watching...
My Food Lady heard a crashing noise in the kitchen and ran in to see what it was. I had just jumped up from the floor to the telephone table to the top of the refrigerator when she arrived. "Hmmmm, what happened here?" she said looking around the kitchen. She looked down at the trash bag all tipped over and then she looked up at me settling in on top of the refrigerator. "Willow, do you know how this bag tipped over?" she asked me. I know when to keep silent and I simply looked at her and smiled.
That is when I got to watch my Food Lady clean up the trash!

My New Chair

China Cat wanted me to help her find Spring because she is tired of it being so cold. I went over to the window but I couldn't see Spring coming yet. I found a great place for me to wait for Spring to get here. This recliner chair really belongs to that little guy who comes over to visit all the time. He is my Food Lady's grandson and I usually hide under the bed when he comes over. He is almost two and wants to play with me - I do not play with children and in fact, I hide under the bed when adults come over too! However, I really like his chair and I like to sleep in it when the little guy isn't here...Like now!
P.S. I finally got to open my Secret Paws presents
and my Food Lady is getting the pictures ready!
Boy, did I get some great gifts!
