Frootbat Friday


A trio of Frootbatty Cats!

A blogging friend recently asked us what was the history behind the word Frootbat, and of course, Teri googled it, hahameow!

We remember Skeezix saying it, but weren't sure if he started Frootbat Fridays...but it's been around since at least 2006. Or maybe it was the handsome Luxor who coined the term... Or that lovely lady cat Kaze

Turns out, it was Kaze! Luxor and Skeezix have crossed the Bridge and we haven't heard from Kaze in a really long time either, since around 2008 when her family divorced...

But Frootbat Fridays live on in their memory!

Frootbat Friday, Kely Style!


Kely Bray went in to work with Teri for the last of her laser therapy treatments for her arthritic hips and back. And she loved being a 'clinic cat' so much, that Teri is going to take her to work with her from time to time, so she can purr for their clients while they wait for their kitties treatments, or if they stop by to pick up medicine...


Teri calls Kely a Granny Cat, cuz she is 13 years old and meows like a granny, too, hahameow. But she just had her senior exam and lab work and her bloods are super for an older kitty, but X-rays showed a lot of arthritic changes in her hips and lower spine, so the vet recommended laser therapy.


She got 4 treatments the first week, then 3 the second week and then 2 the third week and has had one a week for 2 weeks and everyone can really see the difference! No longer does she walked hunched up and she is moving more freely, too. Here's a video clip of Kely before her first treatment:

And this is after 4 treatments:

And Teri's phone died, or she would have taken a video of Kely today, so you could see the visible improvement...but she will do that next week and add it to this blog post!

Now Kely is going to start on a glucosamine chondroitin msm supplement and get Adequan injections and see if that can keep her comfortable, and if not, Teri will have the laser treatments started up again...

Oh, and yes, here is a great shot of Kely's Frootbats!

ManCat Monday, featuring Clover & Jasper



In looking thru our thousand of photos, Teri found these sweet shots of Clover and Jasper...


They are part of our extended family and got to come and stay in our B& B a couple of years ago!


As you can see, they certainly enjoyed their stay with us!


And are two of the handsomest ManCats we know!

Frootbat Friday!


Our friends know this pretty lil Frootbat, her name is Bebe and Teri says her pretty Flame Point coloration makes her look like she's been dusted with cinnamon sugar!

She and her mother were returned to us a year ago due to family problems and they both just went to the vets for their Wellness Exams and lab work. Teri was very worried as the vet heard a very loud heart murmur on Bebe that wasn't heard a year ago (although she did have a slight murmur as a kitten).


Teri has a prospective home picked out for Bebe, with a lovely young woman who recently lost her kitty from us to cancer.


She wanted to give Bebe, who is 10 years old now, another chance at happiness in her golden years...
But Teri didn't want to burden her with taking on a kitty with heart problems, without knowing what her prognosis was, etc...


So today, Teri and Bebe saw the specialists at CVCA (Cardiologists) and they got good news!

The murmur is caused by a mid septal ridge at the site of moderator band insertion-suspect congenital finding. The findings are currently not problematic.

Teri and Bebe's new owner can now rest easier and so they are making plans to meet up sometime in the next month or so, and soon, Bebe can start her new life with them...that makes Teri very happy to think of!

Frootbat Friday


Of course, we have an endless supply of Frootbat Fotos, being that we Cornish Rex are the Frootiest!


Our Frootbats are one of our most endearing attributes!


But CRex are not the only kitties with them...


And we can't hear the term Frootbat without thinking of dear Skeezix, who crossed the Bridge almost one year ago...

ManCat Monday


It takes quite a ManCat to be Chill at the VET...


But Brighton said he felt right at home, lounging on the couch...


He even thought the Welcome Mat was pretty Cool!


And he said the Purrfect Suites were comfy, too!

All of the above photos were taken at Teri's new day hunting place,
