I am Spirit, the youngest, strongest, most intense and active of all the cats in my family. I am a silver Egyptian Mau with black spots weighing in at just less than 13 pounds. I was born in November 2012 in Wichita, Kansas; I flew from there to my forever home in Los Angeles. Life is so exciting, isn’t it? I love meeting people, learning new things and having my tummy tickled. I run all the time….up and down the stairs, through the house and on my new cat wheel. View Spirit's Posts.
How do you get to sleep with this stupid cone on? I'm tryin' -- I'm tryin.' Meowmuh, can't you take this thing off? Puh-leeeze?! No? Not until it heals? Sigh. Maybe I'll try her bed upstairs.
Spirit: "I got up here with my cone on!" Inkee-Bear: "What IS around his neck?" Sophee: "I don't know. Better him than me!" Inkee-Bear: "You're so right! Wonder if it has to do with that mosquito bite?" Sophee: "I bet it does.
See? Told you I could do it. I can run on my exercise wheel even with this cone on. Oops. Meowmuh said: "Ouch!" But it didn't hurt me. You didn't see me yelpin,' cryin' or stoppin.' No sireee. I love my exercise wheel. Meowmuh said she got it particularly for me because I have so much energy. That's me. I play hard, sleep hard & eat hardy.
I'm gonna' prove that I can do anything with this cone on. I can run on this exercise wheel. Yes I can. Just watch. So what if I couldn't jump into the stroller. I'll figure it out & jump in there later today. If not today, tomorrow. There's not a cone in the world that can stop me from doing what I can do without the cone.
I've measured & measured & measured. Don't think I can get up in there right now. But, trust me, I will jump into my stroller. I can do it. I will do it. I can do anything I set my mind to. My sibs know it, Meowmuh knows it & I bet you do too.
I'm still measuring. I'm just not sure I can jump in there with this stupid cone on cause it's hard to see what I need to see. I think I'll just wait until later but I'll figure it out before the end of the day. It's my fav spot to watch Meowmuh fix our food. And while she's fixin', I'm talkin.' Between you & me?
I want to be in my stroller. It's my fav place. Let me see. I'll measure. You may not know it, but we cats frequently stand up to 'measure' before we jump on or into something new. Jumping into the stroller with this cone on is a problem but I'll figure it out. If not today, tomorrow.
I figured this one out. I can eat from my bowl! The bowl is small enough that the cone sorta' fits aroud it. I'm starved. Going to the vet would make any critter hungry! My hooman is relieved & impressed that I can eat with this cone thing on. I'll show her & my sibs -- I can do anything -- cone or no cone.
I'm trying to just walk but things keep getting in the way of this stupid thing around my neck -- this thing called a cone. It stops me in my tracks. Why?!! Meowmuh says it's because the cone covers my whiskers. When I don't have a cone on, little air currents in the room vibrate my whiskers just enough to tell me where everything is -- the air currents change around furniture/objects.
Can you believe this? A neck cone? For a mosquito bite? Yes, I scratched it even after Meowmuh treated it from the cat emergency first aid kit. She told me to stop but I couldn't. How do you not scratch an itch? I scratched 'til it bled.
