Mom and Dad had just finished vacuuming the couch, so Josie figured it would be a good time to stretch out and get her furs back on it. Doesn't she look so sweet on that gray?

First of all, thank you all for your concern about my bloody paw. It seemed to be a fluke. But I'll keep you posted.
Now, today's indignity... I am a very floofy cat and because of that I sometimes get bad matts in my furs. Well I had a few near my bottom and I couldn't really do much about them, so Mom and Dad bought some electric clippers today at Target and gave me a little bit of a sanitary cut. It's not as severe as the one I got when I had to go to the emergency vet with my anal gland issues last year, but it still wasn't my favorite thing I've done recently. It feels better, but the process stinks.

A strange thing happened tonight. I was lying in bed with Mom and she noticed a few spots of blood on the bed spread. She looked and I had a little blood on my front right paw between my toes. It wasn't actively bleeding, I wasn't guarding my foot while I walked, and Dad was able to clean it pretty well. All I can figure is that I aggravated my paw climbing up the step stool that helps me get in bed. Dry skin, I'm hoping. At least it got me some extra treats.

Happy birthday to my dear sister Maggie. She's the youngest of us and the sister we never realized we needed until she became part of our family. She can be bossy, but we love her so much. 11 years old and she still acts like a kitten. Maggie, you are a special cat and we love you so much.

Our dear old friend William is entering his final days, less than a week after his 13th birthday. William was the first blogging cat to come visit us something like 11 years ago. My blogging opportunities are less than they used to be, but when I did get to visit William's was one of the blogs I always made time for. I remember the passing of his siblings, including the sudden unexpected loss of his brother and best friend Russell. I know we don't get to stay here forever, but William is a year younger than I am, so it just doesn't feel right or OK. I just have to find peace in knowing that William is reunited with Russell and that Caroline and Co. will take good care of his mom. Rest in peace, William. You will be dearly missed.
