What an exciting week for Molly, thus far!

Today, Molly went to the vet for the first time in six years! Now that she’s officially a “geriatric feline”, I thought it prudent to get her blood work done. Although the car ride was abject torture (only when a song by Phoenix came on did she stop meowing), once we got to the vet’s office she calmed right down immediately. Molly behaved so sweetly! She didn’t make a peep when she had her temperature taken, or even when she got her rabies shot. However, she weighs just 5½ lbs.; she’s the smallest kitty.

My life would be measurably better if Molly was willing to come onto the balcony and hang out in the sun with me.

Today I bought a fresh bag of cat food, and on bringing it home I poured out a bowlful for Molly to enjoy. She always keenly appreciates a new bowl of chow but today she seems to be taking the gluttony a little further than usual. In fact, it’s accurate to say that she’s gorging herself on this extra-crunchy, ever-so-yummy fresh food. Thoughtful readers will be unsurprised to learn that her breath does indeed smell very much like cat food at this point. I, however, am mostly worried about the number of times she’ll puke tonight, and the volume of puke she’ll produce.

Eating the leftover yogurt out of bowls and other vessels is one of Molly’s greatest pleasures in life. She will coming running up to me moments after I pop the top off an individual-serving-size container of yogurt (the distinctive sound of which has conditioned her to freak out), and she’ll refuse to let me be until I’ve shared some of the goodness. If there is anything Molly adores more than cheddar cheese, it’s yogurt. And that’s why I feel a pang of guilt whenever I remove a container of yogurt from the fridge and take it with me to eat at work; poor Molly is missing out on sharing this delicious, creamy snack with me! I’m depriving her of something she loves dearly. She’d be so very upset if she knew…

A cat and her heat source.

The corner of Molly’s mouth twitched slightly as she looked up at me smiling at her. I think she was trying to smile back at me. Because cats do that, right?

Molly is crying because I’m outside on the balcony, and she’s “stuck” inside. Of course, she could simply cross the threshold to come outside and join me, but she’s a scaredycat.

Big news! Today, for the first time ever, Molly placed a paw into the outside world. My balcony. She withdrew that paw almost immediately, but still: progress! Someday my cat will not be a scaredycat.

Molly smells like pancakes. Delicious!
