Pet Pride: If It's Not One Thing, It's Another

Hi everybody. It's me, Mia.

Yes - I'm back. I missed all my PET PRIDE buddies. Especially Bozo. I know he's a dog but he's cool.

Mom person's post below was depressing me so I decided to step in and add some frivolity to the mix. I roll like that.

What the hell am I talking about?

I am as old as dirt! Actually first there was me, then came dirt.

I've been feeling soft towards the Mom person. I have added to her stress level by having a slight setback in my quest to live forever. I hurt my leg and couldn't move around much. I had a terrible time getting up to home base so I stopped eating and well, I was pooping in inappropriate places.

I'm mortified

Mom person got me new meds. She also did this massage thing that really helped. Turned out it was just a sprain. I loved the massage, it really eased the pain. Of course I rewarded the Mom person! I bit her - repeatedly and hard

So. I decided to follow the vet's advice and move around more.

A trip off home base requires some planning.

I must get down. Mom person created steps for me and put a soft blankie down to land on. Thoughtful but of course I go around all that. Where's the challenge? Instead I catapult myself directly toward hardwood. Hey, it's not like I pay the vet bills.

Since I share a home with a punk I need to make sure the coast is clear.

This requires excellent sleuth skills

On this day I was delighted to find that not only was the coast (and hallway) clear but there was new territory to explore.

I'm not going to comment on the shoe choices. Apparently Mom person was a Brooklyn Bimbo Ho in another life. Sad but true. And she hangs on to them the way Joan Rivers hangs on to having a face.

I was really looking forward to exploring this new frontier when ...

I swear I had the vapors and a small stroke and I think I peed myself.

Hey Siren! It's way more fun if you put your head INSIDE the plastic.

Your Joan Rivers line is hysterical.

Sylvia K said...

Hey, Mia, you're one hip cat! Glad to see you moving around and do keep the Mom and Siren in line -- I have to do that all the time around here and since Mojo is so friggin' big I have to be really sneaky!

Hope you're feeling better now!

hey, and me, too, Mia!

Glad to hear you are feeling better and exploring a bit.

That Joan Rivers line is very very funny!

bobbie said...

Sorry you hurt your leg. But now you can empathize with Mom person, can't you? she takes great photos of you, BTW.

Villas Girl said...

Mia - you are such a devil. oops I mean diva. Glad your leg feels better. Enjoy the massages and try, yes try not to bit the mom person. Dirty looks are okay and get the point across just fine. Lisa

Lily Hydrangea said...

Your Mom Person is hysterical! & so are you Mia, and so cute to boot.
I hope you are completely healed very soon. I am glad you have a good person to stand by you through thick and thin.

CG said...

Hi Mia, hope you enjoyed your exploration. LOL at Joan Rivers!!

Deborah Godin said...

Mia, you could do stand up on stage, you really could. Get an agent!

fermicat said...

Mia is such a cutie. I hope she's feeling better and ruling the roost in high style.

Carolina said...

Hope Mia's paw will be better soon. Great post. Huge laugh!

Daryl said...

My sister brought a set of steps for her older cat so she could get up/down easily .. the cat never used the expensive steps .. like Siren, she prefered to jump down onto hard wood highly waxed floors ..

Oh Dear Mia....You are so dear and Funny! LOVED you talking about Joan Rivers face....I dearly hope you will be feeling Top Top ASAP....I understand about Old Age, I'm sorry to say...It Is A Bitch! Take good care of The Mom Person....when you bite---make it a little sweet "love" bite. Life is hard and biting is!

Raven said...

Sorry about your leg... I hope you'll be kind to your mom and keep her laughing. She's such a great person and deserves only joy and love.

It's good that the two of you care for and support one another. Hope you continue to recover and that your mom gets the information she's seeking soon.
Hugs and blessings,

Mia I would begin to make a bit more effort - Mom person might read my blog and decide you are just a bit to much trouble - don't forget you are a cat.
You might want to pee on her computer, that could ruin it and it might buy you a few more months.
Sorry for being so crass but I am just trying to help.

My wife and I have a miniature dachshund that my wife treats as a child. He’s getting up there in age himself now, and they get really bad back legs and backs. She has to message his back thigh as well. She bought him these doggy steps so he doesn’t break his back. He used to do the same thing until we bought the steps. If you want, here’s the link………….
I happy he’s feeling better!!

Arkansas Patti said...

Mighty sends his best to you about the leg thingy. He is just getting over his and says, Hang in. This too shall pass.

Hey Mia - hope you're feeling stronger now. Be kind to your Mom person - she needs your support.You know she makes a joke of the things that worry her most.
Hi Dianne - I loved your post on the disability space thieves. It's just great that for once one of them will get their come-uppance. I'm sure all three of you felt much better for a good laugh!

Bond said... shoes do not mean your mom person was once a Brooklyn Bimbo means she has STYLE

Sparkling Red said...

You have a personal massage therapist? My heavens, stop biting her! If you don't want the massages, I'll stand in for you.

Oh MY Gosh DI.... this could so easily be my miss priss Whippers. She is so, "do it my way or the high way bitches". I luvs her but I could throttle her sometimes. Never would obviously. You know what I'm saying. Hehhe.. this is the read of the day!! Brava.

I thought about you all day the other thinking how much when I started that process, I hated it. I walked out half way through. One more person trying to angle me to see "if" I was "really" sick or just wanting to be a lazy ass no good for nothing welfare seeking bimbo. I think not, just look at my last ten years of work (at the time) and my income. Yeah, i'm signing right up for this SSI thank you cos gosh it's 600.00 less than I make and even with your gifted food stamps I'll be lucky to have an open face sandwich during July pic-a-nic.

Your humor has returned. I love it. Glad you found a spot of happy down there in that attitude of yours *wink*

Tammy... ps... love it... "stitch"

Oh dear god in heaven I thought I was going to shit myself over this...

...Apparently Mom person was a Brooklyn Bimbo Ho in another life. Sad but true. And she hangs on to them the way Joan Rivers hangs on to having a face...


That was BEYOND brilliant, Dianne!

You deserve a special comedy award for that one!

I so love these posts!

You're the cats meow!

Thank you for yet another stellar performance, dear lady!

X ya!

Casdok said...

Loved following you around! Hope you are feeling better!

Jacob said...

Oy is right! Great looking old cat; wonderful photos; super story line...well, except for the stuff about kitty pooping in inappropriate places.

Hope Mia's hurt's been resolved and her frivolity solved and life is back to normal!

Anndi said...

"And she hangs on to them the way Joan Rivers hangs on to having a face."

I worship you.


Linda said...

What Anndi said - I'm still cracking up here!

Hang onto those shoes, Hope may want to play dress-up someday and what could be more fun than dressing up and strutting your stuff like a Brooklyn Bimbo Ho?!?

Mare said...

There may be a kids's book in your story as the cat. I loved it!!
