I forgot to add that you can rub dried catnip between your palms (paws) and rub it against the scratching post to entice them

I like the idea of catnip on the scratcher. So far, she just looks at it and walks away from it.

Max and I had sushi for dinner last night. Max likes nice fresh tuna..but has no interest in imitation crab meat. Who would, eh?

She has a pink ball now. I have to get a picture of her playing with this thing. I have a feeling it's been doused in catnip.

The Animal Hospital just called to confirm 'Maxi's appointment for tomorrow'. I have no idea what I've gotten myself into, do I?

I do have to admit...I think I might love this cat.

Vera- I think you already love that cat. good luck at the vets, I have to get my kitty tto the vets, but I keep putting it off because I'm afraid they'll tell me something is wrong with her and I couldn't bear losing her after putting my dog down in Nov.

I'm having a heart attack....She's gotta sense my tension. I just keep remembering how freaked out she got last Monday.

I need a sedative.

Next communication will be post vet. I'm having a heart attack.

Maxi is officially a 5 year old girl! The technicians at the vet's office loved her. She cried in the carrier, which in turn made me want to cry. She weighs 9 pounds and was very good natured during the entire exam.

She has pink eye in her left eye, which I suspected. I have drops for that; and it should clear up in 3 days or so.
She tested negative for feline HIV and leukemia, which is a great relief. She got a rabies shot, and a distemper shot. She's got a bit of dander that I got a special comb for and some kind of drops (fatty acid ) to add to her food which will clear up the dander problem and give her a shinier coat.

Everyone there suspects what Lou and I suspect...that she belonged to someone at one time and was released for some reason. The doctor also suspects shes may have been spayed, explaining why she never got pregnant during the 9 months she was hanging out in my yard with facciabrute. And no, PieSusan, I'm not ready to take in another one just yet!

So, that's it. I'm the proud staff member of a very affectionate 5 year old dolly named Max-i. And she didn't even go run to hide when we got home. She's hanging out in the kitchen hoping for some chicken.

xoxoxoxo to all of you for walking me through this!
