Hi DannysMom.

Sounds like Miss Mindy kicked up quite a ruckus with Shelley. This happens from time to time with Theresa and Tang; and it goes both ways these days. We will probably never know why they do this. Just the mystery of being feline cool.gif

I hope you and your girls had a most pleasant day otherwise. TTFN

Tom's Dad, I think you are right about it being a mystery of being feline! wink.gif wink.gif Mindy must have been in one of her moods. The next day she was nice to Shelley and groomed her. All's well again in kittyland. Yesterday evening Mindy spied on Shelley as she was using the litterbox. Shelley also does that to Mindy. I don't know what it is with them that they just have to watch each other going potty. laugh.gif

Hi DannysMom

Sounds like your Mindy is a right little rascal when it comes to winding Shelley up! Lucky Shelley is so forgiving. Sweet though as she obviously just wants to play with Shelley a lot.

How is her skin now?

xxForeverxx, yes Mindy is definitely the frisky one in the family! She loves chasing after Shelley and wrestling with her. After Shelley went out on the balcony today and got some fresh air she was all wound up and played chase with Mindy. I love seeing them gallop around. Mindy's skin looks a bit better. I ordered some witch hazel that is safe to use for cats and will try to dab her chin with it once a week to keep the blackheads in check. Mindy is taking it in stride. She doesn't seem to be bothered too much by the blackheads, but her skin is still so itchy and she gets jumpy and restless.

Poor Mindy developed a big, red bump right by her ear, but it is healing now since I've been putting ointment on it every night. She doesn't like the greasy ointment, but it sure does help. This morning she was in her snuggle mood and rolled on her back and rubbed her head all over my arm. She loves having me home on the weekend and always gets so affectionate with me on Saturdays. Yesterday she was getting so excited watching the seagulls in the morning who were swooping in and looking for some food in the trash that people had put out for trash day. They only go for the white trash bags where they can see what's inside. Mindy was happily chattering away at the seagulls. She loves sitting in the window and watching the birds. Last night Mindy and Shelley snuggled on top of the bed with me, real close to my body to keep warm. Early in the morning the leave and do their cat thing which is probably chasing each other.

Miss Mindy is feeling VERY frisky today! She chased after the pink soccer sponge ball and had it all to herself since Shelley was resting on the couch. Mindy did so well, racing after that ball. Then, she chased Shelley around and all of a sudden I heard a distressing "eeeeeehhhaaaa" which sounded like "NO, not my tummy!" I saw Mindy and Shelley wrestling. Shelley fled into the living room and Mindy right after her and she confronted her on top of the couch.

But Mindy can also be very sweet. This morning I snuggled my face into her soft tummy fur. smile.gif As always, Mindy is very talkative on a Saturday, so happy to have me home.

Mindy chased Shelley around last night, and this morning she was after her again. She has been very playful these past few days, always wanting me to play with her after dinner. I am glad she is doing so well. The fur on her tummy is growing back and so far the pustules have not reappeared on her face. A few nights ago I woke up in the middle of the night and felt a kitty settling in next to me. It was Mindy. She laid close to my upper body and snuggled her head next to my arm. How sweet! smile.gif

Hi DannysMom

It is so good to hear of a your Mindy doing really well right now. Sounds like the two are a right pair when they play together. Did Mindy play out on the balcony in the snow?

xxForeverxx, thank you for your well wishes for Mindy. She and Shelley are having much fun together. I like watching them interact and groom each other and play together. Mindy did not venture out in the snow on the balcony. She was picked up as a stray with her brother, so she probably had her fill of the cold. She loves being out on the balcony when the weather is nice. Then she tends to stay out longer than Shelley.

Dannys Mom,

I just read through this string of posts...much of it put a smile on my face. What beautiful, beautiful girls you have there!! And Mindy has just the most gorgeous eyes--quite amber in color, very stunning! And Shelley has such a beautiful coat!! What a joy they are for you, I can tell how much you enjoy and love them both!

I'm just over two weeks losing Molly Rose; this last week I've had moments when I think maaaybe, for just a few minutes, that I'll be ok, I'll survive this. But then, a couple hours later, wham, the grief hits me head on and just knocks me over--waves of pain, it's agonizing. You understand that, I know. I will look forward, one day, to seeing the color in the world again, like you do. This site has been such a blessing.

So thanks for sharing the pictures and joy in your life, they made me feel good. I'm glad for you. **hugs**

Snapdragon, thanks for stopping by and reading about my "girls". Mindy and Shelley are both gentle and loving cats and I'm really blessed to have them in my life. I am so sorry you lost your sweet Molly-Rose. Two weeks is still very fresh and raw. I remember I was a total mess two weeks after losing my Danny and inconsolable two weeks after I lost my Tina. And you are right, the pain is agonizing, it is gut-wrenching. There is nothing like it, it is just plain awful and wears us out. You are welcome to stop by here anytime and read about my "girls". I am so glad that reading about them made you feel good.

Hugs to you,
DannysMom

Mindy is up to her old tricks again! smile.gif Just watched and laughed when I saw Mindy climb on Shelley's back and hold her in a head lock. She started biting Shelley's neck and grooming her head. Poor Shelley let out a low growl at such lack of respect for her dignity. And another low growl...yet Mindy persisted. Then an anxious protest...Mindy relaxed her grip, jumped off and sat next to Shelley, looking at her as if to say "There now, wasn't that fun?" Miss Mindy sure is a frisky one!

To my surprise Mindy had jumped into the bathtub last night when I wasn't watching as I brushed my teeth to get ready for bed. I planted her on the bed and she stayed there and snuggled with me through the night. When I woke up and turned she laid down right next to my arm, snuggled her head into my hand and placed a loving paw on my arm. So very precious! smile.gif Mindy is very talkative this morning, sitting on the ledge and giving off enthusiastic meows. I think she's happy it's Saturday and that she's got me home with her.

Mindy is absolutely CRAZY over this new cat toy I got for her, the Ethical Skinneeez Forest Friends Wand Cat Toy. It's a little soft toy squirrel on a bouncy string attached to a wand. Mindy loves it! I wore her out last night. She kept meowing excitedly while playing with the toy, and she kept inviting me over and over again to play with her. She just could not get enough of it. I have to put it away at night since she tends to chew on things and she tried to take it apart last night while I wasn't watching.

Shelley was trying to get in on the game this morning, but Mindy gave her a quick swat on the head. Shelley smacked her right back, as if to say "Hey, I wants to play too!" I told them that the toy belongs to both of them and they can both play with it, so they calmed down. I have never seen Mindy so excited about a toy before. She doesn't like the noisemaker toys with rattles or ones that are too heavy. This thing is just perfect for her. I'm glad when I can make her happy! smile.gif
