Smudge Update

Hi everyone! Smudge here. First…big, HUGE thanks from me and all of us for your thoughts and crossed paws about the tests I had to have.

smudge paper

Just wanted to let you know that we got all the test results back and it looks like my heart is JUST FINE! Whew! Is mom ever relieved! Cuz if there was something wrong with my heart, that coulda been REALLY bad.

The vet guy is gonna talk to my nice skin doctor lady but he says that it’s prolly Ass-muh and that he’d like me to give THIS crazy-looking thing a try:


It’s called an “Aerokat” and it’s made especially for us Ass-muh kittehs where they squirt some medicine called “Flovent” into it and then I breathe it out of that tube. I guess Ass-muh humans use the same kinda medicine only without the crazy contraption. Here’s a video of another kitteh using it.

Between you and me, I don’t know if I’m gonna like that but if it makes it where I can play real hard again, I guess I’ll give it a shot.

Oh, and since we learned that Ass-muh is lots of times caused by allergies, we might also get me something called allergy testing so that I can get  shots to help me build up my resistance to stuff that makes it hard for me to breathe.

Thanks again for your good thoughts and wish me (and mom) good luck. We’re gonna need it!

Wishful Wednesday

Hi everyone! Smudge here.


I have a favor to ask of you all. See, I have to go to the vet place today to have some tests done because sometimes I wheeze and cough and can’t seem to catch my breath. My nice skin doctor lady thinks maybe it’s something called ass-muh but she wants me to go to my regular vet dude to make sure it’s not something to do with my heart.

If it’s ass-muh, that’s okay because there’s things we can do to treat that. And between you and me, I figure that’s what it probably is. But YOU know how moms are. They get all freaky and worked up and worried about stuff like this. So if you could cross your paws and send good wishes, I know that would help my mom feel lots better.

Thanks ever so much from the bottom of my tuxie toes! Whisker kisses and headbutts to you all!

Pip and Puddles Come to Visit

Hi everybuddy! OMD! I’m could just wiggle my brindle furs off cuz two of my very bestest BFF’s — Pip and Puddles — came to visit me as part of Pip’s Bucket Tour!


See, Pip has one of the very biggest hearts around. And when you have a humongous heart like he does, it works SO hard sending out love to everybuddy that after awhile, it gets awfully tired, and his dogtor told him that it might not be too terribly long before his heart poops out altogether. So Pip decided before that happened, he’d take Puddles Duddles Rainwater and go around the world, visit his furends and experience lotsa things he’s never done before. And gosh, when I heard that, I KNEW I had to have ’em come visit me!

Well, I was kinda stumped about what to do cuz I knew they had already come to Collie-rado earlier in their tour and visited lotsa stuff around here. So I thought real hard about what I could do with them that they hadn’t already done. Then I remembered how much fun my mom and Uncle J had at our zoo and I thought, “THAT’S IT!”

Now, Pip and Puddles just went on a safari in Africa so I knew I couldn’t really compete with that…UNLESS I was able to get them up close and personal with the animals in the Zoo. So I pulled some strings and got us all V.I.P. (Very Impawtant Pup) passes. And, oh, gosh, we had the bestest time!

Our zoo here is called the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo and it’s one of the only mountain zoos in the whole world! So of course, our first stop was to take a picture at a place that overlooks the entire town of Collie-rado Springs. (Brudder Ranger came along as our pawtographer. He says he prefers to be BEHIND the camera.) They have a ski lift there but it wasn’t running that day so, well, Puddles just improvised.

Zoo overlook

Next, we headed over to the giraffe exhibit which is kinda special cuz Cheyenne Mountain Zoo has the largest herd of giraffes in the United States. By the time we left, I think one of the giraffes was kinda sweet on Pip!

We cleaned all the giraffe slobber off of Pip’s head and at the next exhibit, we met this funny little guy that we think might have an identity crisis.


Since he was most obviously NOT a kitteh, we decided to go see some REAL ones.

Now, I wasn’t ENTIRELY convinced those mountain lions weren’t going to eat Puddles so I real quick-like suggested we go visit the hippos which I thought would be safer. Turns out, I shoulda known better.


Well, I couldn’t have agreed with Pip more! So I asked him what kind of animal he really wanted to visit with. He said he has always liked gorillas cuz they remind him so much of people…only without all the extra baggage. So away to visit the gorillas we went! Pip and this handsome gentleman hit it right off…


After a nice long chat, I thought it might be kind of fun to play in the snow with Mr. River Otter. Being the jolly fellow he is, he was thrilled to see us and we had the bestest time sliding into his pond.


Pip was right! After all that sliding, we were cold and super hungry. So off we went to the reptile house to warm up, grab some burgers and spend time with my furend, Allie Gator.


Well, after we finished off our burgers, it was time for the zoo to close. We headed back home, had a few snacks (and a couple more cheeseburgers) and took a picture to commemorates the occasion (which Brudder Ranger agreed to join us for).

The next day, Pip and Puddles hopped back in their snazzy red car and were off on their next adventure. As we waved good-bye, I thought how super lucky I am to have such Most Wonderful furends!

Mancat Monday: The Wild Side

Hi everyone! Smudge here!


As you probably know, I’m an indoor-only kitteh. Plus, I don’t have ANY claws on ANY of my feets (thanks to the dumb people I lived with before) so all that together makes it kinda hard to hunt down prey.

But that doesn’t mean I can’t imagine myself as a Mighty Hunter!

See, our Auntie K just told Mom about these videos on Youtube that are for kittehs only. So Mom pulled one up for me yesterday and WOW! It was maybe one of the coolest things ever! And before you knew it, I felt like I was hanging out with my lion cousins on the Serengeti (that’s in Africa, you know) stalking my prey.

Here…watch this short movie of me watching Youtube and you’ll see what I mean.

If you can’t see the movie, click here.

Okay, gotta go. I heard they also have videos of SQUIRRELS! Those tree rats won’t stand a chance against ME!
