Tortie Tuesday

Addendum: Today is our 9th Gotcha Day! SomeMommy forgot so we'll have her make it up later this week. Sheesh! Thanks for everyone who sent wishes and reminded her!
************************************
Since it's my special day I thought I'd show you some of the special treatment I get around here. As you know, I went to the vet each of the past two weeks. It's traumatic enough for me to go since I get so car sick but when I come home, my little sisfur hisses and bops me with her big floofy paws. To keep the peace, Mommy moved one of our cat trees to another open window so we'd each have our own Birdie TV. Of course, Angel has to scratch on mine to let me know she's near...
She thought about jumping up onto my tree...
But she just kept walking around stalking me...
I ignored her hoping she'd go to her own tree...
Lo and behold, she did!
It's nice to get the special treatment I deserve!
To be fair, she only hissed and bopped me for two days last week but still, that was two days too many! 

Hope you enjoy some special treatment this Tortie Tuesday!
Isabella

PeeS: Someone suggested rubbing a towel on Angel and then on me to stop her from being so hissy. We'll certainly try that next time!

I tried the towel trick here, but it didn't work.
Sumi is still very hissy toward Sammy, but she never comes
close enough to bop him.
Good idea to separate the trees for a while :)

Happy Gotcha Day Isabella and Angel.

Mommy said baths will fix the hissy at each other. We also use Feliway.

We were lucky. Socks doesn't mind the vet smells, so when Scylla and Charybdis would go to the vet and get hissy with one another, Socks would bath them both and then they would be friends again.

Happy Gotcha Day to you both!

That only happened once here, when Nicki had a dental a few summers ago. Derry hissed at him for about 36 hours, which only made Nicki confront him again and again. Fun times. I'd suggest putting a scent that you use on them both, but with Isabella's asthma that's not a good idea. Feliway, as someone suggested. Not sure I'd want to go the bath route. LOL.

So Happy Gotcha day to you two??? Glad you are getting treated with respect Isabella. You all have a great day.

Having your own special kitty tree in a sunpuddle in front of an open window sounds pretty great :)
Tell your sisfur to quit being so mean! Good thing she's cute, right :)

My human used to rub catnip on Sparkle and the other cats! Now, nobody is upset when one of the other cats goes to the vet.

Happy Gotcha Day! Sorry that Angel is not acting like an Angel :)

Happy Gotcha Day!

The mom says to stop the hissies - put baby powder on efurryones ::ahem:: butt. It really does werk. Efurryone smells the same and the hissies will stop.

A special bird watching spot for both of you! Hopefully she'll stop being a goober after your vet appointments once and for all.

Happy Gotcha Day. Our mom is always forgetting birthdays, but with only two of you, we are thinking that Mom Sharla needs to shape up. Hope you get lots of extra treats and toys to make up for it. Mom is putting your book in the mail today. Sorry she is so slow. Sending you lots of purrs and prayers, Isabella. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth ad Calista Jo

Happy, Happy Gotcha Day! Weren't you lucky! It really isn't 'special' treatment, it is only just exactly what you deserve...somemommy knows this - only the best for you (and Angel).

Fur Everywhere said...

We are sorry we haven't been by lately. The Mom has been quite stressed with various things, but we say that is no excuse for her not helping us visit our friends!

What is going on with you? Are you okay? We sure hope so! Two vet visits in two weeks doesn't sound good.

A very Happy Gotcha Day to you both!! We hope it is absolutely wonderful <3

Yous not have to stay long, just long enuff to get dat smell on ya' and da VET off. Mommy sumtimes takes a dirty shirt and wraps me in it afur we get home (works 60%). And da ultimate is to spway purrfume all wound so nopawdy can smell anyfin' but da furench ___house (works 98%). MOL Good luck and have a purrfect gotchaday.

Lin said...

Criminy. Like it's not bad enough going to the doctor...and then you get that when you get home?! Sheesh.

I hope the towel trick works. Or Feliway. We used that in the winter months when Hobbes was bored. He'd attack poor old Grace all the time and it stressed us all out. It works though.

It's either that or Febreeze everybuddy! ;)

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

Sheesh,Angel, be nice. Poor Isabella needs sweet sisters when she gets home from the vet - no hissy hissy. When one of us goes to the vet and the other stays home, the one who got to go gets a big sniff over when then come home:) Maybe that's the same as being hissy:)

Love seeing the duo in their Bird TV trees:)

Isabella, the same thing used to happen to me when I went to the vet. When I got home, Wally was really mean to me. The mom tried the towel thing but it didn't help much. Now Wally goes with me to the vet. I hope Angel stops being mean to you.

And Happy Gotcha Day to you both! We love you lots!!
