A Catnip Elephant!

Bubbles received another package. It was from Wally, Ernie & Zoey of The Island Cats and it included a Catnip Elephant toy! How cool is that? There were also a card, treats and fever mousies.

Trouble immediately grabbed the elephant and made crazy catnip eyes.

Bubbles is still hanging in there. Some days he is doing well and others, not so much. He had a few bad days when I was out of town, but is doing better today and ate an entire Fancy Feast Appetizer serving this evening.
We are getting close to the point now where I have to consider whether his quality of life is still acceptable. Right now he is doing fine; in the crook of my arm, purring and grooming. I hope we will have a nice sunny long weekend in the garden ...

Beautiful Cards

Bubbles received two more cards! This beautiful card with the pink flowers is from our good friends at ManxMnews.

And this unique card of a kitty enjoying the outdoors is from the crew at Animal Shelter Volunteer Life.

Thank you very much. Bubbles is doing well. He had an ulcer on his eye last week, but with treatment it is nearly totally healed now. The vet thought that due to the steroids he is on and his FIV+ status, this would cause serious problems, but Bubbles just keeps surprising everybody. He is still eating well (especially Temptations), and enjoying the garden.

More Gifts for Bubbles

We received more cards and gifts this week. This card with Bubbles on the front and back was from Casper, Cleo and their Mom.

These fever toys and little note pads were from Kari (she doesn't have a bloggie). They came in a beautiful blue package and everything was neatly packaged with little cat stickers everywhere.

Junior & Orion sent us this cute Easter Hello Kitty, card and Temptations. Our Mom loves Hello Kitty and claimed it immediately. We don't think that was fair!

Bubbles did not feel up to playing today, but he did pose with one of the fever toys.

Thanks to everybody thinking about us and purring for Bubbles. He has his good days and his bad days, but is still doing OK.
