My Kitty Babies

Well, I can’t do blog posts and not talk about my furry kids. I mentioned Pudge in one blog related to his teeth, and also Merlin on my ‘About’ page. I haven’t yet taken the time to tell you a little about them really, so I will try to do so now. I can’t neglect the two main characters from my book – Merlin, The Cat Who Thought He Wasn’t! I had seen Pudge on as I was searching for just the right kitty to adopt and bring into my home. I had always been a bit partial to orange cats so while looking daily at many kitties, I came across little Pudgie’s picture and though he had a lot more white on him than I was looking for, I found myself returning to his page over and over again.

It’s true enough. My very own kitty, Pudge, seemingly was acting his normal self. He was hungry and playful as well as a little ornery per usual. I noticed that he started to act as though he was getting fussy. He was hungry – that was obvious, but unless I put something irresistible like canned fish, he would nibble a bit and then walk off later to be looking for food and eating a bit more. I figured he was getting older and likely persnickety, but then as I thought about it, he was a kitty that always had a bit of a gum issue right from the start when I first adopted him. Checking his gums, he...
