Feral Friday: Retching and Rolling

Hola kitties! This was the week that was. I was feeling puny this past week. I have a thing where I keep retching like I have to throw up a hairball but nine times out of ten nothing comes out. I did frow up a little bit though. The peeps say they never heard a cat make the spitting noises I do. My appetite is good and my litter box output has been exemplary aka excellent. The other night I also did some coughing so TW dosed me with the inhaler.

Feral Friday: Retching and Rolling

TW thinks the humid weather has an effect on me since this seems to be a regular summer occurrence. Even though Pop gives me daily brushies, it could be hairballs, of course. Pop's far-out theory is that I'm allergic to the flowers Uncle Vince brought TW as a Get Well/Happy Birthday gift since I started retching the following day. It's mostly roses and mums. TW threw the couple of lilies out immediately even though the flowers are out of my reach and I don't chew on plants. What I do chew on is plastic and TW found a clue in one of my poos.  They also found some plastic chewed on and excused me of doing the chewing.

Friendly fill-ins

It's time to join the Friendly Fill-Ins, a weekly feature held at this time, which is already in progress. Our hosts—15andmeowing and Four Legged Furballs—need no innerductions as they are giants in the cat blogging world. They think up the fill-ins and I fill in the answers. My answers are boldface. This week my image relates to fill-in number two.

Feral Friday: Retching and Rolling

1. I just can't bring myself to purr for The Woman. I purr loudly for Pop but never for TW. 

2. I have a hankering for Chinese food. Good Chinese food from the original place not the places they've been ordering from.

3. Adopting some humans changed my life. I now have a roof over my head when the weather is bad and four squares a day. And treats and toys!

4. At this stage of my life, I don't play with toys too much. Once a day TW and I have a short play session. Sometimes two. It depends how I'm feeling. I've been doing the retching thing again so she knows I'm not all that into playing. 

Caturday art

July is Watercolor Month. I looked through my archives of unpublished art and I couldn't find a nice watercolor. I create mostly with oils, colored pencils, pastels and markers. Not to disappoint my fans readers, I dug out the watercolors and went to work on a new piece especially for you. *Points paw menacingly at YOU.*

Feral Friday: Retching and Rolling

I know I look like I'm blind in one eye but I am showing a little blep. The brush with the green paint slipped when I was applying the green wash. Just imagine I'm winking at *YOU*. I call this Green Eyed Lady.

Caturday Art is hosted by the lovely Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty and her mum to showcase the latest art by anipal artists using the many different digital apps, Photoshop or original art.

Would you like to comment?

  1. I sure hope you don't have to keep enduring all that retching stuff, that's no fun.

    Beautiful art!

  2. I love your watercolor art, CK! You know, you might have a bit of plastic stuck somewhere. That happened to Sparkle once - it was way back in her throat. It took a vet to get it out. You probably didn't want to hear that last part.

  3. The watercolor art is terrific, and that first photo is so funny. You need to get that purr motor going for TW. We bet that would make her feel terrific. Sending lots good wishes to TW.

  4. CK, The PO'M had a coughing jag while sitting on my lap yesterday; wish I could do more for him, but as an outside only cat, we are limited to how much we can nurse him...as if that ever stops me from trying some holistic or home remedy.
    Again, lovely art...just beautiful! I'm going to puzzle right now!

  5. Miss Fitz does that when she eats too fast. Dad thought it was hairballs but no. I sure hope you feel better beautiful. Love your beautiful art but how could it be anything but amazing with such a good looking model. *Rumpy Winks Back* this is for You Sweetie!

  11. Sorry to hear about the retching, CK! We've been coughing and sneezing more too and I think it may have something to do with heat, humidity, and summer plants all around.
    That is outstanding water color art, it's really cool!

  12. I am sorry about the retching, CK. Maybe not eating plastic would help. Your watercolour is lovely, and thanks for the puzzle. Do you think you could give my love to TW without biting her?

  13. I’m sorry you’re having some issues, CK. It probably is the weather. The heat and humidity never seems to help. At least you’re eating and using the litterbox just fine.

  14. I'm sorry you haven't been feeling well, CK. This summer has been rough on Mudpie's asthma too. I think you should start purring for TW...I think it would be very therapeutic for her.

  15. Sorry you're not feeling well. We're sending purrs to you to get better soon.

  16. Hope you are feeling better CK - maybe a few purrs for TW would cheer her up too.

  17. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. I hope you feel better soon. I wish you would purr for TW, it would help in her recovery. She was wise to toss the lilies. I hope you get your good Chinese food soon. I love your art. Thank you for the puzzle. XO

  19. Ahhhh! Retching! I, Marv did that this morning. I managed to get the remains of some mouse feet in Mom's shoes...unfortunately, she heard me and did NOT slide her feet into the shoe...Darn. Love your fill ins! I can't remember the last time we had Chinese food! I think it was in Richmond almost 2 years ago. There is no take out around us. Mom does try homemade though and it its got chicken in it, us cats turn into vultures! I hope you feel better grrrl furend.

  20. We like the way your watercolor turned out, CK. Sorry you've been retching and stuff. This weather is the pits. We bet it is related. Anyway, we hope you are feeling better real soon. Hugs to you, TW and Pop.

  21. TRIXIE HAS ALSO BEEN RETCHING A LOT LATELY. MAYBE IT *IS* A SUMMER THING.
    YOUR ART IS BEAUTIFUL AND VIBRANT.

  23. Wow, lovely art. I wonder why you won't purr for TW. It's not like she deprives you of anything. Come on, give her just a little purr.

  24. TWTW, wasn't there a TV show with that name? And do you know that R&R is s-posed to mean "rest & relaxation"? OhMyCat, you are at heart a very good girl so give the hu-mom a break, just a weelittle on and BTW June says she rather enjoys plastic too, have you tried tape? It's almost as good, tho sometimes it sticks to your tongue, or somewhere else on the way down, talk about coughing!!! However, on the way out it "holds" stuff together quite well, my hu-mom says she might not have to buy clumping litter anymore as the tape does such a good job. Sigh. Being a cat is a hard, right. Here's to a better week this week: BWTW.

  25. When our Tucker had asthma, he would often puke this foamy clear stuff when he didn't feel well. Perhaps it's the same for you?

  27. CK, you were so sweet to adopt your humans. They'd certainly be lost without you. We're sending lots of purrs and well wishes to both you and TW!

  28. CK...Oh! She accused YOU of eating the plastic there at your house? Fine. Blame the cat. You KNOW she did it.
    Mom said since I take up 3/4th or more of the bed and demand services all day long, that she feels that I might consider allowing the table and chairs a place in the room. I am considering it but...I told her not to hold her breath! DON'T chew plastic. I lick the stuff and if mom leaves it within my reach I try to eat it too! AND my tissue paper.
