#BlogPaws Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop 'Season's Greetings'


Yes, that is Kely, burrowed inside a very Merry & Bright kitty sleeping bag, purrfect for the holiday season! She is dressed in a sweet (not ugly) Christmas sweater! 


Kely says staying warm is a priority this time of year, and is very happy to have a fleecy snuggle sack to curl up in! Kind of makes me want to curl up and do the same!

If you want to see what your blogging friends are up to and how they are celebrating the holidays, how about visiting the BlogPaws Blog Hop now!

#BlogPaws Wordless Wednesday Hop! Here Comes December!


Since I haven't posted anything to Kely's blog in almost a month, one might think she hasn't been up to much worth sharing...But no, it's just my lack of initiative and the fact that it's now dark when I leave for work and dark when I get home. 


I kind of dream of being Kely sometimes, even though in human years, she's 15 years older than me! Her days are filled with naps, breakfast (lunch and sometimes dinner) in bed and lots of cuddling! When she is at work with me, Kely has a large, well-trained staff to cater to her every need...

And when Kely is at home, she has her choice of places to curl up, and if it's sunny she can be found stretched out on the 'Country Suite' guest room bed, and she will be sure to come and yell at me if any of the other kitties try and take her spot!


And I'm also happy to share the good news, that Kely recently had an abdominal ultrasound to see how her tummy was doing and great news there! All the measurements of her intestinal tract and lymph nodes were within normal limits---YAY! A big improvement over a year ago!

And while I was hoping Kely's IBD, presumptively diagnosed just over a year ago, was being well-controlled with meds as her vomiting has stopped, I still can't get her to gain weight and I just wanted to make sure nothing was hiding inside that I should know about!


That good news made everyone at work smile, including her handsome man friend, Dr Anderson! Kely has made him want to get a Cornish Rex of his own some day! She brings lots of smle to everyone she meets!

She has quite a following on her Instagram page and she'd love for you to follow her, too! You can find her at at www.instagram.com/kely_with_one_l

And while Instagram is fun, instant gratification way to pass the time, joining in on the BlogPaws Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop is loads of fun, too and a great way to meet new friends!

#BlogPaws Wordless Wednesday...Senior Lady Cat Edition!


The weather has been unseasonably warm, but Kely enjoyed the late autumn sun in this pretty sweater in all the colors of the falling leaves! There's lots of life left in this spry Senior Pet!


And here she is in a sweet ruffled pink feminine frock, enjoying the golden afternoon sun. Senior pets especially love basking in the sun if they have arthritis, like Kely does.


And here she is in a fun 'Selfie', wearing her #SecretLifeofPets dress... Senior Pets know how to have fun!

Kely makes everyone smile no matter what she is wearing! And some of that is because she is a Senior Lady Cat, so we are happy to celebrate National Senior Pet month along with our friends!

And if you'd like to smile, jump in on the BlogPaws Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop and see what your other young and old friends are up to!

BlogPaws Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop...Pet Holiday Edition!


Since Kely dresses up at work, I thought it only appropriate that the Halloween Skeleton Cat dress up, too! 



At first, Kely didn't want to share her fountain with another 'cat', but she finally decided that she wasn't a Fraidy Cat, hahameow!

Have some Holiday Fun by joining in the BlogPaws Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop...it's not scary at all!

#BlogPaws Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop


All of you who know Kely know she spends almost every day at work with me. Pretty much five days a week, with a 60 minute commute in the morning and 90 minutes at night. She's a purrfect traveler, pretty much naps while I try to stay awake, hahameow!


So before we make that trek home, we usually go outside and sit by Lake Anne for a bit, she sunning herself, me catching up on Facebook and Instagram. She wears a different outfit every day, much to the pleasure of everyone at work, and the clients at Just Cats Clinic, too.


With many late summer flowers still blooming, in spite of the heat, I found a lovely spot to take some pretty photos of Kely in her new frock. She looks sweet in frills, don't you think?!


She doesn't dress up when at home, but spends much of her time burrowed in her 'kitty sleeping bag' with a pet safe heating pad inside to make it extra cozy!


And she does like to join in the daily snack of dried Bonita flakes with the rest of the cat family! I order 3 giant bags for a great price here on Amazon, and I'm sure your kitties would purr if you purchased some for them, too!


And because the theme of this weeks BlogPaws Wordless Wednesday is New Horizons, I thought this photo of Kely and her famous daughter, Coco the Couture Cat would be appropriate, as I don't have many photos of them together actually...


I'd probably need an assistant to help me, but I'd love to do a series of photos of them together in fancy dresses, in Coco's Pink Catillac and maybe just curled up together, though Kely is a bit standoffish with the other cats...it's humans she loves to hang with the most!


And speaking of hanging with friends, how about joining us in the BlogPaws Blog Hop!

#BlogPaws Wordless Wednesday: Kely's Sweet Sixteen Today!


How many kitties go to the vet, and have a party?? Well, Kely is the rare exception to cats hating to go to the vets, hahameow! And she is so loved there, that they threw her a party today to celebrate her Sweet 16 Birthday! 

video

Kely brings a lot of joy to my life, and to the lives of many others, and we would be pleased as punch if you would follow her on Instagram, so she can add joy to your life, too!


And another thing that is joy-filled is the #BlogPaws Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop!

Monday Mewsings


We missed posting on the actual National Ice Cream Day yesterday, but thought you'd like to see Kely wearing a fabulous hat that looks like an Ice Cream Sundae!


She was wearing a cute dress that coordinated with the hat perfectly, too! 


So sweet that she and her daughter, Coco the Couture Cat, can share outfits, as this was the one that Coco wore last weekend to the Ice Cream Social!

Wordless Wednesday #BlogPaws Style


Kely's been lovin' summer and the pretty flowers around Lake Anne Plaza sure make for some pretty picture taking! Just can't have her nibbling on them like she did last year, which gave me a scare...Now I keep a 'tight leash' on her when posing by posies!


As a Granny Cat, she does spend much of her day at work with me, napping in her heated bed behind the reception desk, periodically getting up to pee or have a sip at the fountain and perching on Genevieve's shoulders (Cornish Rex think of humans as Warm-Blooded furniture, hahameow!)


Kely just had her 6 month Senior Exam and lab work and she is very stable with her kidney values, which is great for an almost 16 year old kitty! Her IBD/lymphoma symptoms are gone, except for the fact I can't get her to put on weight even though she's got a good appetite.

No, this isn't her food, it's just a nice perch!

It's been almost a year since her Internal Medicine specialist visit, so we are going to try and reduce the meds she's on (prednisolone and metronidazole) from 3 x a week to twice a week and see how she does. If she remains stable, then we will keep her on twice a week meds long term. 

She still gets Adequan twice a month for her arthritis, and B12 once a month for the IBD, and periodically she gets some acupuncture for both health issues. And I'm loving the shampoo I started using on her a while back, Keto-Hex. She is a pretty yeasty girl, and he skin and fur have improved with bathing so she doesn't need weekly baths lately, twice a month is enough to keep her skin nice and smelling sweet. Though one of her favorite admirers loves her 'French Fry' scent, lol!


Hope your Wednesday has you purring and if you feel like hopping, then jump in and join the BlogPaws Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop, just like us! The theme is Horses Rock, and while we don't have horses, I did find one for Kely to sit on...Really!

Wordless Wednesday, #BlogPaws Style


Kely has never been to a BlogPaws Conference, unlike her fashionable daughter, Coco...

Photo by Christine Roe, Bailey's Doggy Directory

But she may be able to go to the next one, because it's being held in Myrtle Beach SC and we can drive there, so the whole crew may be able to go! 

Although that wouldn't be very restful for me, juggling cats round a conference or 4 kitties in 1 hotel room may not be conducive to rest for the cats, either... unlike the quiet times Kely and I spend sitting by the lake...



Kely gets to be in the spotlight when she goes to work with me, those are her 'public appearances' like Coco's... in fact, many people confuse Kely and Coco, which should make Kely feel very youthful!


Every day, Kely makes me, and many others, smile...Did Kely make you smile today? 

If she did, please follow her on Instagram, and keep the smiles coming!


and hopping on the BlogPaws Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop will bring more smiles if you join in!
