Grandma's Blog

We wanted to introduce you to our Grandma. She is a sweet woman who is always willing to hold us, pet us and sneak us cat treats. When we lived in the States, she often came to our house for a visit. We really enjoyed napping with her on our over-stuffed-couch. It has been over a year since she came to see us in Italy and we really miss her. We hope that she will come again soon.

Recently Grandma started her own blog. Stop in and check it out!

Did we mention that she is very strong?

Dr. Feelgood

Fear not friends of Cat Naps in Italy, Opus and I are back! Both of us were feeling a little under the weather and have spent the last month sleeping our way back to good health.

Our humans noticed that there was something wrong with us; Opus had missing fur under his right eye while I had some nasty stuff clogging my ears. We tried our best to hide the symptoms, but the humans were not fooled. They dragged us both off to the vet not once, but twice in the period of two weeks! I mean really how much can a cat take?

Just in case you didn't know, the word vet is an acronym for Vicious and Extreme Torture. And the humans wonder why we run and hide at the sight of our traveling cage!

Opus escaped without too much torture. The vet cleaned his eye, which had a slight infection. She also checked his ears which were fine. I, on the other hand, didn't fare as well. I was given the complete bumper to bumper inspection, IF you know what I mean. The nasty woman started with my ears (both infected), moved onto my mouth where she scraped my teeth with a sharp metal object AND noticed that I had a gum infection above one of my teeth. Then she kept going on down. I will spare you the nasty details, but lets just say that she poked around my unmentionables. And she did all of this right on front of our humans! How inhumane!

So after many weeks of medicine and plenty of rest, Opus and I are back to good health and back to blogging.

Thanks to all of our friends who have been checking in on us!
