Freeky Friday

My brofur, who is a rather large mancat, thinks he is a baby! He really does. He wants me to wash him, he wants to be held by mom, he tried to nurse on Sadie, twice...um, yeah, dat was really weerd. She whapped his ears back for that one. Has anyone ever heard of such a thing? He will be three years old next month and he's never done anything like this before. I told mom, he's just weerd, he's always been weerd. Anyway, mom has her lappy top back and Jeff is coming tomorrow to teach her some stuff she can do to keep dad from making it "grimy". He put something on here that, well, messed with her other stuff and den made everything dirty. Jeff won't let mom pay him for fixing it but he won't refuse these...

Them is banana chocolate chip. She is also making some tirimisu...orange and chocolate. Jeff loves when mom goes "italian with a twist" so she is making lasagne with homemade sauce with sausage and zuccini/riccota filling and homemade italian oregano bread and den da tirimisu fur desert. So, mom invited da nefew too. Dad has been helping Jared, da nefew, find a car. An affordable, decent, dependable car. Dad sez this is not an easy task as the boy is rather poor and cars are rather expensive. Now, on to news of Tiny ::see Sadie, I do know his proper name:: here is Sadie the milk maid...

Dat is NOT funny Zippy! How would you like it if he tried to nurse on yoo...::sorry::thank you. So, Tiny has moved on to the second part of his cancer treatments. He is not feeling well, he has started to yak and lose his appetite. They are giving him stuff to settle his tummy and increase his appetite. This is working a little bit, he only eats tiny amounts of food but he does it more often. He is staying with the oncology vets this week as it is easier for them to monitor his food intake and stuff. His beans go twice a day to visit and say he is happy to see them when they get there. Well, who wouldn't be happy with seeing loved ones while in the hopspittal. Oh, none of us will show mom our tummies or do da Q fur Monty's contest. Well, I certainly won't, if I do Speedy might try to latch on! Dat boy is so weerd...

Update: mom sez she discovered these cookies by making a mistake. She was on the phone and had a house full of sticky beans and was making regular Tollhouse cookies and asked dad if he would get her the vanilla from the top shelf. Well, dad was distracted by a sticky bean and reached in and grabbed da banana extract by mistake. Mom din't even look (she din't haf her glasses on so it wouldn't do any good anyway) and added banana extract instead of vanilla to da batter. She wasn't gonna waste all dat nice buttery, chocolaty goodness so she baked dem anyway and yoo know what...dey is deelishus. She's tried dem wif orange extract too and dey is one of her favorites but effuryone else likes da banana so she makes dem.

Oh, Zippy, Sadie and Speedy, how wonderful you and your beans are to help Artsy Catsy pay for my vet bills! We're leaving for the vet in a few minutes and hoping for good news because I'm a lot worse since this morning. I'll be thinking of your healing purrs and friendship all the way there and back!

Your new friend,
Mr. Milky

Sunny's Mommy said...

I have never heard of that. Rascal's mother quit nursing her kittens too soon and Rascal has always had a nursing habit (but on blankets, clothes or people's skin). She really enjoys it! It soothes her and makes her nicer, for a while :-p Maybe Speedy is feeling stressed about something?

Your Mom's dinner and desserts sound absolutely wonderful! Have a great weekend :-)

The Island Cats said...

Our mom says that when she was younger she had a cat that did this...tried to nurse on another cat. She thinks it was because he was taken from his mother too soon...poor thing! We thinks it's a little weird too....

Those cookies look yummy...do you think your mom could make some catnip cookies???

We hope Tiny feels better soon...

I is just drooooling at the sound of the food that your mom's making (especially at the choclate n banana cookies!!!). Can I come live with you?

We hope Tiny feels and gets better soon! We will purr for him.

So wait... what's weird about a mancat nursing and wanting to be held and groomed? This isn't something that mancats are supposed to do??

Victor Tabbycat said...

Speedy. is. weird. DUH, like I already knowed that! :-)
If I efur tried what he tried on Ms Bonnie, I wouldn't be hear to tell bout it. Can I haz a cookie?
::spin::
All dat food sounds wonnerful, but since Dad can't eat it, Mom will try to resist. Hope Tiny is feelin better real soon.
Purrs!

It sounds like you are having a very interesting time around your house these days!

Shadow / Molly said...

Willow said...

Well, I treat China Cat like she is my Momma Cat because she always washes my face and ears but I have never tried nursing on her.

My Food Lady thinks that your banana chocolate chip cookies look really tasty!

I hope that Tiny feels better very quickly!

I finally almost did a half-full monty today for my Food Lady and she was thrilled. I thought...whatever...

Purrrrrrrrs, Willow

Camie's Kitties said...

Those chocolate chip cookies sound yummy. Would your mom be willing to share the recipe??? We are glad that you got your laptop back. We know that some people have the mistaken belief that cats that try to nurse later in life were taken away from their moms too soon, but it is usually just the sign of a very contented cat. We are guessing that Speedy is just saying he is VERY happy.

Cat Street Boyz said...

COOKIES YUMMMMMM! They look great but mommy said she would have never thought of putting bananna in the mix! "How 'bout tuna mom?"=^Y^=the Cat street Boyz

Fat Eric said...

Hmm. nothing wrong with wanting to be cuddled like a baby, I love it when my mum does that with me! But I am a cuddly boy. Maybe Speedy is not so weird. I love being groomed too.

The banana choc chip cookies sound delicious, can we have a recipe? I think banana extract is quite hard to find here, mum has never seen it in the supermarket. Must be a Mericky thing.

Derby said...

Zippy, mum sometimes thinks I was weaned too soon as I like to chew stuff more than usual.

Mum says the cookies sound good. Suggestion to use a bit of mint flavoring extract sometime to give them a minty taste. Mum rarely makes cookies as she doesn't need to eat them.

Zippy, the nursing thing is kinda weerd, but we are all for the being held by Mom! Between looking at the cookies and reading about the lasagne, our Momma is drooling ... hee hee! Have a Happy Sunday!

Cookies! Mom is hungry reading about all your foodies! Our Nana is making Chick-hen Parmigiana this week! We all love that!

goldenshade said...

Speedy, wow, I don't know what to say really.

I have a city cousin who does that stuff too and he's a big 6 year old mancat so I guess it's normal. Kinda.

That meal sounds pretty yummy!!!!! So do those cookies!

Those cookies look very very yummy! Don't worry about the nursing. Pumuckl is more than one year old and still does it (but Chica doesn't whap him for that) :-)
