We Interupt This Silence...

A very sleepy Piggy - mobile phone photo. Dude, what is up with those paws?

Hi:

It's Grover. Listen. We're very sorry we have not written in so long and we thank you so much for your many emails and comments and concern, and patience in our responses. Here is a summary of our last month:

1) Our mom got bumped and bruised by a mini-van. This is what happens to a person who is distracted and instead of staying on the sidewalk, walks in the street along the driver's side of the parked cars. Let this be a lesson to you.

2) The day after the Mini-Van Incident, Piggy had a major freak out at the vet resulting in 8 stitches in my mom's hand. (Um, excuse me? Even after THAT, she's still in love with him? Really? Can you say, "Unhealthy Relationship?" Can you say, "Dude...what is up with that?" Exactly.)

3) OK, this one is still sketchy, but personally I think Piggy gave my mom Swine Flu even though the doctor said it's bronchitis. It's all just too coincidental. Mom gets ripped open by Pig. Mom gets stitches. Mom gets a flu. Mom gets bronchitis. Mom's eyes get all red and scary. Swine Flu breaks out. Coincidence? Only the Shadow knows.

4) Piggy's meds were reduced and a few days later he began puking and having diarrhea again...but now he is much better...especially once mom realized the little stinky thing had been sneaking into the closet, had ripped open a bag of our other kind of yummy food we used to eat before Pig ruined everything and got sick, and had eaten a very large quantity of the food. Once our mom removed the offending product, the vomiting and diarrhea stopped. Yeah, she's a smart one, that mom. Doh! This is what happens when one looks upon their child as an angel instead of a devil. Piggy is a devil. I don't care if he's Pink. Pink is just a lighter shade of red, and we all know the devil is red. And the devil's got a whippy tail. And Pig has a whippy tail. Just sayin'.

5) Piggy sleeps a LOT. A whole lot. And when he's not sleeping he is lolling about like a walrus on his super special blue plaid blanket, enticing someone to kiss his round, bald belly. He's disgusting.

6) OK, he's LESS disgusting than he used to be because the medicine has stopped all his skin from flaking away into piles of snow. He used to leave piles of himself everywhere and now, nope, not a flake. But he still smells.

7) We love you and we'll be back soon.

Luv,

Grover

P.S. Piggy wants to tell you something: Hi. It's Piggy. Listen, I do not find it funny that people keep asking if I gave mom the Swine Flu. The answer is NO. Despite being Pink and Bald and having the name Pig, I am feline not porcine and even if I could give her Swine Flu, I would not because I know my mom loves me best and I would never want to make her sick. But I might give it to Grover. If I could. But I can't. So I won't. Luv, Piggy.

P.P.S. Hi. It's Grover. Listen. Harrumph. Luv, Grover

Oh no!! Lots going on at your place! Hoping you mom is feeling better and no longer has the piggy flu!

Piggy must be a pink hairless version of Cal because when Cal was switched to a special food he broke into the pantry and ate almost a whole bag of his old food! Of course, that made him sick too.
We are sending our best healing vibes to all of you!!!
Get well soon, Piggy! We love U!

It's good to see your update. We're sorry to hear your Mom got hurt and got sick too.We missed seeing you two.

C Meir said...

We R so glad you all are together, even if it is in sewed-up pieces. To Grover, I understand why you may suspect Piggy of giving your Mom flu, but these things are not often done alone. I would investigate the dog's culpability in this matter. I've heard rumors...

Daisy said...

Good job reporting, Grover! I am glad to hear that Piggy is doing well. I hope your mom feels all better soon!

Sparky said...

Oh Piggy, we love you so much (you too Grover) and have been thinking about you a lot. We have to give you props for being sneaky and ripping open the old food (guess you still have your energy when it comes to that!), but really, don't eat it b/c it's making you sick!

I hope you do get better soon and maybe all the sleep is good for you, but just once in awhile get up and pester Grover so that your mom feels a bit less stressed.

Junior and Orion said...

Wow!!! Lots of goings on at your place! We hope your Mom is feeling lots better and we hope Piggy stays feeling better.

Sendingyou lots of purrs!!

Oh, how happy we all are to read your update...happy that your mommy wasn't hurt worse, happy that the pink devilish cat is doing so well and that Grover is being a bit like Mr Shrill, even that is funny.

Camie's Kitties said...

Oh no, Piggy, you cut your mommy and she had to have stitches? And then she got sick. That isn't good. We are glad she is feeling better, and that Piggy is feeling better too. Grover, where is the picture of you too?

A Few Good Cats said...

That sums things up very well, Grover. Maybe a bit unfair and imbalanced in regard to Piggy, but...

Anyway, we hope the bad medical news is now behind cats and humans alike. Purring that if it is swine flu, it's just the 24-hour swine flu...

Karen Jo said...

Oh, my, I hope your Mom is healing up well from all the bruises and Piggy slash and the flu. I don't think it is Swine Flu, Grover, because Piggy isn't that kind of swine. He is living up to his name with the old food, though. I am glad that you are feeling better, Piggy, but please just eat the food you are supposed to eat.

Shana said...

Hi, Piggy. My mom came back from mewr place last night smelling suspicious. It wasn't just the roasted beets from the salad, but something more ... familiar. She said mew shared mewr famous beloved blue plaid blanket with her??? Don't mew know that's a violation of the feline code of conduct? Mew do NOT share like that with them. Just as Grover. He knows.

Karen Jo said...

I think Piggy's long toes look elegant. You are just as cute in your own way, Grover. I have given you an award.

Ikaika said...

Thanks for the update, Grover. We are so sorry about all the hurty stuff happening to your mom. We are sending healing purrs and energy her way ...

'Kaika and his mom

Cliff and Olivia said...

Thanks for the update we've been wondering what was going on. We're sorry about your human getting hurt and sick. We hope you'll take extra good care.

Elenka said...

Oh, Grover...we are soooo happy you posted your update. We (Mom and I and the other cat I live with) were so worried when we didn't hear from you! I see Pig has removed his sweater. I really liked the look with the sweater. Maybe your mom needs to wear it now...to cover her stitches. yeah. That's it.
Your poor mommy...I hope she gets better right soon.
Deep down inside, Grover, you know you love Pig.
BTW, Swine flu comes from different kinds of pigs.
Love U guys!!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Well, that sure is a lot of news, but then you had some catching up to do. We are relieved Piggy doesn't have swine flu (whose idea was it that he did?) so he didn't give it to your mom. But evidently he has given your mom a big vet bill, a huge scare, a lot of pain and a huge human vet bill. Good going, Piggy. All we've accomplished in the last month was to make Jan pass out from loss of blood.

Buddy here: I did NOT have anything to do with Jan stabbing herself! But I did lead the emergency medical crew.

The Meezers said...

Hi guys - we hopes you is doing well!

The Meezers said...

how are you all doing?

The Creek Cats said...

Hi guys! Just checking in on ya..... hope Piggy is doing well and Grover too!

Karen Jo said...

Just stopping by to see how you are doing, Piggy. I hope and pray all is well with you.

Brandi said...

piggy, I am glad you are feeling better and I never believed for a second that you gave your mom swine flu. I also know I'm your favorite vsitor and that the upset stomach was probably from you missing me. it's understandable. I miss you too.

The Meezers said...

HI Piggy and Grover and MsPiggysMom - we hopes you is all ok!
