FOLEY'S FOLLIES

Happy Birthday Baby Kitty...

My four-legged babies have been begging me all week to go to Baby Kitty's 8th Birthday Party!

I gave in, told them to get on their finest and we would stop in to wish Baby Kitty a very Happy Birthday and all the best wishes in the many years to come!





Lil Claire is such a flirt, she had to wear her finest tiara to try and impress the Birthday Boy... who knows what her gift is.  Probably something for herself!!





As you tell by his expression, Louis doesn't like wearing hats very much.  But he is being a good sport and even went out and bought his own gift for Baby Kitty!  I have no idea what he finally decided on.




Silly Tux would wear ANYTHING, as long as you told him there would be food to eat....




Sweet Bailey simply loves cats, so he was begging to come along....



Thought we were going to be late - Jack is such a goof-ball, I had a terrible time getting his attention.  Finally told him we were leaving since we didn't want to be late.



I ran across this detailed description and just had to share it with all the cat lovers out there in the world...



How to Give a Cat a Pill



1. Pick up cat and cradle it in the crook of your left arm as if holding a baby. Position right forefinger and thumb on either side of cat's mouth and gently apply pressure to cheeks while holding pill in right hand. As cat opens mouth, pop pill into mouth. Allow cat to close mouth and swallow.

2. Retrieve pill from floor and cat from behind sofa. Cradle cat in left arm and repeat process.

3. Retrieve cat from bedroom, and throw soggy pill away.

4. Take new pill from foil wrap, cradle cat in left arm, holding rear paws tightly with left hand. Force jaws open and push pill to back of mouth with right forefinger. Hold mouth shut for a count of ten.

5. Retrieve pill from goldfish bowl and cat from top of wardrobe. Call spouse from garden.

6. Kneel on floor with cat wedged firmly between knees, hold front and rear paws. Ignore low growls emitted by cat. Get spouse to hold head firmly with one hand while forcing wooden ruler into mouth. Drop pill down ruler and rub cat's throat vigorously.

7. Retrieve cat from curtain rail, get another pill from foil wrap. Make note to buy new ruler and repair curtains. Carefully sweep shattered figurines and vases from hearth and set to one side for gluing later.

8. Wrap cat in large towel and get spouse to lie on cat with head just visible from below armpit. Put pill in end of drinking straw, force mouth open with pencil and blow down drinking straw.

9. Check label to make sure pill not harmful to humans, drink 1 beer to take taste away. Apply Band-Aid to spouse's forearm and remove blood from carpet with cold water and soap.

10. Retrieve cat from neighbor's shed. Get another pill. Open another beer. Place cat in cupboard, and close door on it to neck, to leave head showing. Force mouth open with dessert spoon. Flick pill down throat with elastic band.

11. Fetch screwdriver from garage and put cupboard door back on hinges. Drink beer. Fetch bottle of scotch. Pour shot, drink. Apply cold compress to cheek and check records for date of last tetanus shot. Apply whiskey compress to cheek to disinfect. Toss back another shot. Throw Tee shirt away and fetch new one from bedroom.

12. Call fire department to retrieve the damn cat from across the road. Apologize to neighbor who crashed into fence while swerving to avoid cat. Take last pill from foil wrap.

13. Tie the little @#$%&*'s front paws to rear paws with garden twine and bind tightly to leg of dining table, find heavy-duty pruning gloves from shed. Push pill into mouth followed by large piece of filet steak. Be rough about it. Hold head vertically and pour 2 pints of water down throat to wash pill down.

14. Consume remainder of scotch. Get spouse to drive you to the emergency room, sit quietly while doctor stitches fingers and forearm and removes pill remnants from right eye. Call furniture shop on way home to order new table.

15. Arrange for SPCA to collect mutant cat from hell and call local pet shop to see if they have any hamsters.

What a fun crew!!! I especially like Jack!! I used to be owned by a Golden - she was my bestest furriend! So Jack and I hit it off quite well :) I gave him a few extra snacks, I hope you didn't mind....

I'm breaking up with your pill instructions. And sent it immediately to my daughter, who is bringing her cat down to Florida with her next week. After the last experience, I told her to tranquilize the cat first. She'll get a kick out of this!
