I may be tied up this week going back and forth to communicate with various vets and specialists. If I am absent, please know that I am trying to share information in the hope that it may help another cat and another cat guardian as well as covering every possible thing I can for Banjo.
The vet sent the meds for Banjo in a sealed box. Inside the box was a toy too! Lol It’s for a good girl who takes her medicine! Cat people are great people. As everyone here :grouphug:

Time for a smile? Banjo agrees!

There is a toy?

Orrrrr, I could take the phone from the hooman!
View attachment 423428

I pull the phone to me and I order my own toys!

You know the saying, When the cat's away the mice will play?
Well here I think we have a case of 'when Jcatbird's away the member friends will play'.

This may be the thread where off-topic is on-topic but we may just be taking things a little far. ;)

Not to fret, Mani! We'll get back in line, we always do...eventually. Right now, we're just...holding down the home fires and keeping the fort burning until our Fearless Leader returns! There's not much sadder than all of us sitting around, saying, "I wonder how they are?"

mani mani Thank you for the gentle reminder. :hugs: I appreciate it very much. It’s been a tough time and I do digress in an attempt to keep things on a positive note or even to get assistance from skilled people here. Every person I have ever communicated with or learned from anywhere on TCS has helped me and I am most grateful for each and every person and purrson. What would I have done without them? I will be sure to put a cat in charge here. I think Banjo would be very efficient but since she is currently occupied, Muffin is a Tortie and can probably handle anything far better than I ever could. She may be a little tough to deal with but maybe I need her catitude to keep me in line?:) If you hear me say ouch, she has corrected
me.
Ouch. I think she may enjoy being in charge. Ouch! :heartshape:

Hope things are going well at Chez Catbird.

I'm following Banjo's thread, so won't repeat myself too much here, but I will send more love and healing vibes her way.
:hearthrob::vibes::vibes::vibes::vibes::vibes::vibes::bicolorcat:

Have a great weekend everyone! :heartshape:

And to go off topic, just a teeny bit, here's my peony giving its yearly show.

Jcatbird Jcatbird i pray everything will turn out fine with Banjo and the rest of the kitties too. I hope they are ok. I lost track with the thread, forgive me. Also have been busy lately. And my panic attacks are coming back, but not to worry much. I have Graham keeping me smiling at most times.

To the rest of my TCS family here, especially those having some rough days, just hang tight and soon turbulence would be over.

happy thoughts always!

rubysmama rubysmama GORGEOUS peonies! Thank you for sharing with us!
Maria Bayote Maria Bayote What gorgeous catties and beautiful pix of them! You're far from alone in feeling those things these days -- I'd suspect anyone who isn't! -- so yes, I know the C.A.T. (Cat-Assisted Therapy!) that Graham and Bourbon give soothes the head and heart. SNORGLES on them from me!
Jcatbird Jcatbird We are in excellent paws with beautiful Muffin! SNORGLES on her, on Banjo, and on the entire Chez Catbird clowder from me.

What would we have done without you all? Smiles and flowers and beautiful cats! Ups and downs but only the beautiful skies are the limit with kitties! I hope we have been of some help to you all as well. To answer what cat toy was sent to Banjo to help her through with a kitty smile…. Naturally the vet knows that Banjo would want all creatures to be protected. View attachment 423684
This mouse will always be safe from the other cats. Lol

Banjo is doing okay right now. As of tomorrow, every cat here will be receiving some form of meds. Pills for Banjo and topicals for everyone else! I could use a few more dents on my hands. Lol There will be two times I have to give topicals since flea meds come due too! Ack! Alley is going to be the toughest case. She hates topicals! I did purchase some OTC Praziquantel for her in case I can’t get the preventative tapeworm meds on her. I will be keeping groups of cats separated during this time. I can quarantine cats but I can’t quarantine a flea so the meds are a must! If cats read minds, I am in trouble Mamanyt1953 Mamanyt1953 ! Lol
I am thinking I will put on some cat music and hand out some catnip before I start pursuing cats! Treats before and after! I will do Banjo first since I must observe her closely for a few hours. Then it is on with the cat dances! After that it is going to be constant monitoring of cat boxes and cleaning. If I am not here, you will know where I am for the rest of my life. Lol Stuck under a bed, behind a sofa or in the back of a closet in pursuit of a cat. Also panning for gold…. Well, you know. This is life at Chez Catbird. One last smile post before I go?

Hoooman has a Cheetos!

A hooman would never notice if a cat snuck in a little lick!

Ummm. Is this Cheeto moving?

Licking gently and quietly. Must not move the Cheeto.

I’m not sure but somehow I think one of those super long ear hairs got on his nose too! Has he been trying to use a paw to wipe away the evidence? Whistle! :lol:

This post may have the Banjo seal of approval :bicolorcat::bluepaw:but……
