  • she has her new home

    Today is the offical day Patches is now one of the family. She is in the big giant added on room right now but in the main house. Had to carry her out there but she is so happy now. She has a giant window ledge to sit and sleep on. She's been up on that almost all day and she has compfy furniture to sleep on. It is her room and will let her come in the main main house on and off until she gets used to it. Plus I have to organize it first so it is cat friendly. She was in the living room for a little while this morning and tried to attack my crocheting yarn. Little stinker.

    LOL That is typical of kitties... they love to attack things!! Paddington still keeps me in hysterics sometimes. He attacks his toys, my toes, the dog, shadows.... you name it, if he's in the mood, he'll pounce!!!

    Congrats again on your new family member. I'm so happy you've kept Patches

    *Diagnosed with severe IC in 2004
    *Also diagnosed with PFD, fibromyalgia, chronic myofascial pain, IBS, migraines, allergies/asthma, dermatographism
    *Kept trying a million different treatments for all these things until I found what works, and I am doing okay these days with the help of a cocktail of medications and the InterStim, which was first placed in 2007. [I have had 2 revisions - one in 2010 when my battery died and had to be replaced, and one complete replacement (lead and generator) in 2012 after a fall on my stairs caused my lead to move.]
    *Current meds include Atarax (50mg at night), Lyrica (150mg twice a day), Xanax (0.5mg at night and as needed), Zanaflex (4mg at night), hydrocodone (10/325, every 6 hours as needed), Advair, Nasonex, Singulair (10mg at night), oral contraceptives, home instills containing Elmiron and Marcaine (as often as I need to do them).

      That's funny.
      It does not take long for these little creature to get spoil.
      Glad you are enjoying your new pet.

        04/17/09 Crohn's disease almost killed me with a combo of extreme constipation from pain medications. My bowel ruptured, I almost died from peritonitis and spent several days in the ICU then more in a private room on the floor. If you have any questions about severe constipation from pain meds please don't hesitate to send me a message.

          Garfield never came back but I think he belonged to someone. He would leave for a few days and come back. Patches is now Queen of her room. Funny how she took over so fast. She will not use her bed. She has taken over sleeping on both chairs. First the recliner and then the other one. She loves running up and down the stairs, running up the couch to jump on the window ledge. She doesn't seem to be eating a lot now either. Was thinking when she first came she more then likely had to fight for what ever food she could find. She would start a fight with Garfield over the food. Guess now she knows she does not have to worry about that anymore. She hasn't even been in the house that long and already spoiled rotten. Guess I know who is boss now.

                Ooooh, she sounds wonderful. How old do you think she is? My kitty, Ruby doesn't spend much time on her bed, either. We have a habit that when my husband and I go to bed, I carry her up to her bed and drop her in it. (She's not allowed in the bedroom). She stays there for maybe 10 minutes to make sure we're in bed for good, and then I know for a FACT that she leaves the bed. When I'm up for my bathroom runs (usually there is one 1/2 hour after we went to bed) she's moved. Often I'll find her sleeping on the floor right NEXT to her bed... ha ha ha ha. Never IN the bed, though. Ever.

                Funny thing is, the nights that we DON'T go through this inane ritual, she gets indignant and cries loudly outside our bedroom door for HOURS until one of us gets up and places her in her bed!
