1. Coffee and toast

I'm looking forward to dinner. I have a late afternoon appointment in downtown Manhattan so we're going to meet up in Chinatown for a feast.

6. He's doing GREAT!

Thanks for asking.

He went through a lousy few months. Certainly getting him neutered has not only made a difference for us, but also for him. Yes, he'd spray/mark, but every time he did it, he'd howl. He had that biological urge to let any female cats know he was around and available (the only female cats around are outside, but that didn't curb his urges.)

We had flea issues in the house. We spent a fortune (money we really didn't have) on monthly flea treatments that didn't work. We washed all the animal bedding (multiple times), washed our bedding (multiple times), vacuumed all the furniture (multiple times), bathed all 5 animals (multiple times) all to no avail. And poor Happy scratched and groomed himself raw.

Turns out that 5 $5 flea collars did the trick. And we got Happy an over-the-counter treatment of hydrocortisone and aloe that really soothed his sores.

Now, he's flea-free, sore-free, urge-free and cone-free and he's living up to his name.

(Funny (well, not so funny, really) aside. He HATES both the car and the vet. When we drove him to his surgery last week, he pooed all over his cat carrier and himself and arrived quite the mess. And when the vet staff tried to clean him up and do a quick exam to be sure he was okay for surgery, he pitched a fit. The staff at the vet's office was really shocked that his name is "Happy." )

8. Almond bars made by my sister. Coffee and cream, of course.

Happy sounds like a happy handful. We use Advantage on our cats- have had no problems.

9. half of a pumpkin spice muffin

plus grapes and bananas with rice pudding into which I'd stirred chia seeds.

Wow, Miss Millie, I had an ordeal with my cat this month, too, but your experience makes mine seem like a walk in the park. Mine had an ear infection but it cost me a thousand bucks to get rid of it and it's still not over.

Wish you'd mentioned about the flea problem because I did a lot of research on this back when I first adopted an indoor/outdoor cat. An interesting thing I've learned is that fleas have now built up a resistance to topicals like Advantage and now you have to buy a new type and it's $50 a month.

Also I don't know if you saw my post on a $16 product that gets rid of flea, mosquito, or almost any other type of bite to which one is allergic.
