My Elusive Kitty


Dog–don’t come near!

I don’t normally talk much about Thailing–she has a different relationship with me than I have with Mystic.

Sage & Mystic

Mystic LOVES me


Mom says she was like that with Maggie and Toby, my doggy soul mates that came before me, so I’m not to feel too bad. Actually, I don’t. I’d just as soon she’d play with me, but that’s not to be, I guess.

Mom says Thailing has some sickies. Her thyroid doesn’t work right and she gets some medicine stuff stuck inside her ear twice a day. When I see the glove come on, I know it’s going to happen! Thailing doesn’t mind anymore, but when we went to the vet the other day, we found out she has even more sickies. Something called IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). Maybe that’s why she only weighs 7 pounds. Me? I’m a svelte 41 pounds.

Mom says we have to fatten Thailing up a bit, so we went to the kitty store and got some new kitty food. And they both LOVE it! But that’s not all–she gets some yummy smelling chicken that Mom cooks.

Nummy chicken!

Nummy chicken!

She gobbles it down! Me, being the best dog ever, watch from afar–wishin’ I had some of it.Sage & ThailingBut I get to watch Mom fix it. After poaching a chicken breast, Mom cuts it up in little pieces and freezes it in an ice-cube tray. Then all she has to do is take out one of the sections for a special meal. Um, she did sneak me a little piece. 🙂

Chicken bitsOn top of all this yummy new food, Thailing gets a little chew pill (prednisone) that she likes (so far) to help with her IBS problems. We hope she gets to feeling better soon, but not before the chicken is all gone!

Sage--I'm good!

  1. We are not sure we have ever met Thailing. What a beautiful kitty. We are so super sorry for her health problems and hope the new medicine and nommy chicken has her feeling better in no time. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo


  2. Thailing is beautiful – is she a Birman? I had a Birman kitty many years ago. Sorry to hear about her health problems, I hope the special meals and the prednisone help!!


    • We aren’t sure what she is–actually Thailing and Mystic are litter-mates. We adopted them when they were only 8-weeks old, almost 12 years ago.

      We had another cat with IBS who was on prednisone for over 10 years. She lived with us for 17 years.


  3. Your kitty sister is so beautiful, Sage. We’re sorry to hear that she has sickies but what a good mom you all have taking such good care of her like that. We hope she’s feeling better in no time (well, maybe in ‘long-enough-to-eat-all-that-chicken time’. 😉

    And you are wonderfully well-behaved. Even around chicken.


  4. oh Thailing…hope you are feeling tip top soon and that you can get a couple of pounds back. My furriend Nylablue in Canada has just come through a terrible fight with that nasty IBS…that chicken looks very yummy BTW! And how does you Mom get those watermarks on your photos…we like them but don’t know how to do them


  5. Thailing is gorgeous! Thank you for showing her to us. We are sure happy that your mom gives you at least a little bite of that chicken since you are so good to sit and not bother sweet Thailing while she eats her chicken. You are a real sweetie Sage! Hugs and nose kisses


  6. Thailing is so pretty. We hope the chicken and meds make her feel better. And how nice of Mom to slip you a piece of that chicken. We get chicken now and then too.

    Woos – Phantom, Ciara, and Lightning


  7. Sage Thailing is beautiful we are so sorry she has the sickies and hope she gets on track with the prednisone and super looking chicken mums making 🙂 and the nest thing is you get a treat if you are a good helper too!! hugs Fozziemum xxx


  8. You are such a good girl to give Thailing her space, Sage. I’m sorry to hear that she isn’t feeling well, but it’s pretty neat that your mom shared some of the special chicken with you. Hope she’s better very soon!
