He lets me play with the string that hangs from the ceiling.

Marmie would never encourage this behavior.

Hijacked

Here is Aunt Beatrice in her favorite mink stole bed.

A Christmas gift, this bed was once one of Aunt B’s most prized possessions.  She sunbathed, snuggled, and snoozed in that bed for at least 15 hours a day.

Until Uncle Irvin hijacked it. 

Grammie and Grandpappy went away on a trip, and when they returned, this bed belonged to a different feline.

Aunt Bea is disgusted.

She says, in order to claim the bed as new territory, Uncle Irv farted in it.

That certainly sealed the deal.  Aunt Beatrice hasn’t stepped within a 10 foot radius of the bed since.

Letting it All Hang Out

Medical Miracle

I’ve never shared this on my blog before.

A year ago, I had an ultrasound because during a routine check-up, the vet felt my back and discovered I had an abnormally large kidney.

(See my shaved belly??)

The results of this ultrasound were bittersweet.

It revealed one normal kidney.  It also revealed a baseball-sized polycystic kidney that was completely overtaken by cysts.  The vet had never seen anything like it before.

The healthy kidney was a truly a blessing.  Kitties with one polycystic kidney almost always have two polycystic kidneys.  But with one functioning kidney, I was given a rare opportunity at a long healthy life with polycystic kidney disease.

Today I went back for a second ultrasound as a one year follow up.  Marmie, Diddy, and my vet are flabbergasted at the result.  My once polycystic kidney is COMPLETELY NORMAL. 

Having seen the shape of my kidney last year, medicine would never have predicted this outcome.  In fact, we were prepared for my kidney to increase in size and thus impact the functioning of my other organs.

This is the absolute definition of a MIRACLE. 

So thank you, friends, for reading my blog and sharing in my PHENOMENAL life!

Love,

Link, Marmie, and Diddy.

Diddy, I know it’s a little late, but I just couldn’t let this day pass without letting you know I love you.

Veggie Cat

Marmie’s a vegetarian.

And although I’m a carnivorous cat, I like the veggies too.

I insist on a full inspection sniff inspection when Marmie brings them home from her veggie stand.

No Salmonella or Listeria in these tomatoes, Marms!

They have my Link Bartholomew stamp of approval.
