Mancat Monday

Evan refused to look at the camera for today's Mancat Monday photos. Why? Because he just found out he's going to the vet today.

I mentioned in this past Friday's post that Evan has recently started licking at a very specific spot on his left side, to the point where the fur is now very short in an area roughly the size of a golf ball. He is on flea prevention and there are no signs of fleas, there is no sign of a hot spot or other sores in the area, he doesn't mind when I touch it, and he's acting like his normal self. I don't want to risk that Evan is licking at his side for a hidden internal reason, or that it relates to any issues relating to his hind limb paralysis. So, my boy is going to the vet today.

Evan is not happy with me about this. Sorry, Evan, but a momma's gotta do what a momma's gotta do. Though I hope it's all just a harmless nothing, if you have any purrs and prayers to spare, Evan I would greatly appreciate it!

Happy Monday!

Doodle of the Day

Oh look, it's yet another forest doodle today.

Did you know?
Did you know that the first animated cartoon cat was Felix the Cat? This black cartoon cat originated in 1919, during the silent film era. It's actually said that Felix the Cat wasn't only the first animated cartoon cat, but also the first animated character in general to gain significant popularity. Felix the Cat was even the first character balloon to appear in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Unfortunately, the balloon flew into telephone wires and caught fire, thereby meeting an early demise.

Actually, our Paddy O'Malley has been licking a bit of his belly, and it's down to pink skin. He is on flea stuff, and I'm not sure what to do, so I'm very curious to hear what the vet says about Evan. Hope it's a simple fix, whatever it is.

I will be praying for Evan. Very cute drawing. I didn't know about the Felix balloon. I have always wanted a Felix clock though.
