Our Sweet Friend, Mango!

Today I would like to tell you all about a pawsome gift we got from our friend, Mango the Maltese Kiddo. We were so surprised to hear from him that we were his First Friend of 2009! This means we were the first friend to leave him a comment in 2009, and he was going to send us a gift!

Mango said he had had Misty in mind with the gray bed since she was sick. He followed his mom to the post office, after writing PooPoo's name on the box too. We received his gift on 1/13/09, the day that PooPoo died. I know PooPoo would have loved the gift, and would have been happy to gulp down all 4 cans of the food, so Misty and I could not have any.......that was just her way.

We got this fun feather bird toy too. Mango hopes that PooPoo will come back to play with it sometime. I love it because it has a feather on it! Hey, mom! I think it is moving!!

The gray cat bed is so luxurious! I sit in it sometimes when I visit Misty in her room. Mom has found some stray gray furs on it too, so we think Misty is sneaking into it at night to try it out too.
Thank you, Mango, for the pawsome gift!!

I have not been feeling so well lately. I have been throwing up for about 3 days on and off, and it might be gastritis caused by anxiety. Mom called the vet and he told mom to give me some pepcid-AC. I took half a pill last night and this morning and if I don't feel better, mom will take me to the V-E-T this afternoon. Oh, the horror of that thought!
I got to put the gray cat bed on mom's desk, so I can be near her while she is working today. I have just been so lonely........with PooPoo gone and Misty sick.

Mom has been giving Misty her fluids every other day for her CRF, and Misty is a little trooper. We think Misty is still losing weight though, which is not good. We will keep you all posted.
Misty still tries to strike a model pose at every opportunity, like from the top of her new cat tower!

Before you go, please sign my GUESTBOOK, and stop by my BIG WORLD too, thanks!

We're so sorry to hear that you're not feeling well, JB! Here in France, we have a great liquid medicine for gastritis and vomiting, called Phosphaluvet. It's aluminum phosphate and something similar exists in the US under the name of Alternagel.

Anyway, paws crossed that you're all better soon, and that's a great gift you got!

Your Pals,
Tom and Tama-Chan

Sorry to hear you are not feeling well, JB. Cal was vomiting big time last month and he was finally diagnosed with IBD. He has not vomited since being on his daily dose of prednisilone. Best of luck at your vet appt today, we hope the vet makes your tummy feel all betters.

Misty, we hope you start gaining some weight, dear.

Deetz said...

I love your new kittie bed! The feather toy looks like a total blast to play with. I am so sorry you are hurling. I cannot stand to puke and I get really upset whenever I do. I sure hope the pepsi or pep c or pepcid works for you and you do not have to go back to the vet.
I think you should talk your mum into getting you a kitty friend to play with so Misty can rest and get well and you will stop throwing up and stuff.

Lorenza said...

Paws crossed for you and Misty!
Take care

Oh no JB. We hope you're better soon. We're sending aire-zen for you ok.
That is a top pressie that Mango sent. PooPoo would have loved it but she'd be glad you can play with it.

Get better ok.

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Oh JB, does a boy blush?
I do now, you made me blush.
I'm so overjoy that you enjoyed the surprise pressies.
The kitty bed compliments you, the color goes nicely well with your fur. You should have modeled for the commercial. You looked comfy in that bed, I think my crazy mom has another idea now...
I'm sorry that Misty still up and down and now that you didn't feel totally yourself. I'm sending good vibes right now.
Bear, forgive me for missing your pressies, my bad my bad.

Those are such nice gifts that Mango sent all of you! What a cute cat bed.

I hope the pepcid helped you and you didn't have to go to the V E T yesterday. I know that's not fun. I hope you're feeling good today, JB. All of you have been going through so much, with beautiful PooPoo going to the bridge, and Misty having CRF. I know it's hard on all of you, and your Mom.

JB, we're sorry that you're feeling a bit sick, but we hope you'll start feeling better really soon. That was some lovely gifts that Mango got for all of you. That feather thing looks like a lot of fun. It's nice that you're sharing the bed with Misty, and that she's using it a bit. She's a great model to keep performing for the camera even when she doesn't feel so good. We're sending our purrs and purrayers to you and to Misty, as well as to your Mom who is looking after you so well.

Pedro said...


Misty is still beautiful even if she is thin. She is a model though so I guess thin isn't bad for her job. We're hoping she's feeling better. That's such a nice bed! I would like to snuggle up in that bed!


Hana said...

Wow, look at all that loot you got from Mango! You look really comfy in that bed! If I tried to sit on my Mom's desk, she'd freak out! There is just no room for me on her desk. You are lucky you get to help your Mom when she works.

I hope you feel better and don't have to go to the V-E-T. And I hope Misty will get better, too.

Sabrina, Sam and Simon said...

JB, we are so sorry you aren't feeling good, we are worried because you have been through so much lately, with PooPoo going to the Bridge and Misty being sick. We hope that you start feeling better really soon, and we know that you are lonely and wish we could be there to keep you company. Please tell Misty we are purraying that she will put on some weight, and of course we are purraying for you to feel better too. Just relax in that wonderful bed you got from Mango and maybe you can catnap some of your stress away.
Many many hugs, purrs and headbutts,
Sabrina, Sam and Simon

Thor said...

I'm so sorry to hear that you aren't feeling well! I'm sorry Misty isn't feeling well either. I am sending lots of ESP your way. If you feel a little jolt in the middle of the night, don't worry, it's just my awesome Bease energy!

I hope you feel better soon!
