Kitty Bipartisanship

Rocky: I admit it. Sometimes we don't always get along here at Artsy Catsy. Sometimes my staff doesn't like my CEO edicts; sometimes my Vice President Fracas tries to issue executive orders; sometimes our spokesmodel Lucy demands preferential treatment; sometimes Callie has major policy differences with all of us.

But these aren't just sometimes ... these are extraordinary times. The entire world is struggling and it's more important than ever not to sweat the small stuff, to take care of each other, to work together, to put aside ideological differences and everybody just get along.

So I asked my staff to be inspired by the magnificent video below, and it has worked wonders -- just look at Fracas and I enjoying a bipartisan nap effort, dreaming of better days ...
I hope you will be inspired by the video, too, so we can all join paws and hands to make the world a better place!

Mom Update

Rocky: I'm still here, everybody, and I wanted to give you an update on my sickly mom. She just finished 3 weeks of antibiotics and she saw the cardiologist last week who gave her yet another medication to try to control her heart rate problem (supraventricular tachycardia) in hopes she can avoid having her heart punctured (YIKES!) in a procedure called radiofrequency catheter ablation. I do NOT want him nuking part of my mom's heart, so I'm making sure she takes her medicine! The cardiologist also wired her all up on a Holter heart monitor, and I was very careful to continually paw and bite at the wires to make sure they were in the right place.

She's also taking three different blood pressure medicines, but her blood pressure is still too high. Twice every day I help her with her blood pressure monitor, again batting and biting at the tubes and cords to make sure they're in the right place. As you can see, all this pawing and batting and biting is wearing me out! ...
But don't worry, I'm going to get rested up in time to host Carnival of the Cats this week, so go ahead and submit your posts any time. And I'm also going to start getting around to visiting all of you, since I've gotten way behind on Cat Blogosphere goings on.

Snoopervising Sickly Mom

Rocky: Hey everybody, I'm still here. But right now I'm immersed in the important task of snuggling in bed with my sickly mom ...

She's having a really hard time. First, her blood pressure went sky high, then she got hit with an acute attack of diverticulitis, then Tuesday night her heart went crazy and she had to be rushed to the emergency room with paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia.

She's taking lots of medicine and feeling a bit better, but we're all still purring on her 24/7, so we may not get back to regular blogging or visiting our friends until she sees a cardiologist next week. In the meantime, we could sure use a massive Purr-In over here!
