Adopt Tigger ADOPT TIGGER

Brian's Home.  Adopt cats, we deserve it!

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, we’ve all got so much to be thankful for each and every day. Today is no exception, but it actually started last night. I know some of you have the PTU out and available for snoozy time. Not here, our PTU lives upstairs with Sister Precious, actually all of them are up there with her. Last night one of them appeared downstairs. Well, it actually didn’t appear, Dad brought it downstairs. You know something is up when that happens, and we all did.

Usually when that happens Sister Dolly tries to organize a PTU Pool and in order to join the pool we have to ante up our treats. Since I was a long shot at 24:1 I didn’t mind betting eight treats. I was a long shot because I’ve been doing good and wasn’t due for anything. The odds on favorites were Sister Zoe and Gracie. I put my treats on Gracie to win because Sister Zoe recently took a ride in the PTU. Dang if I wasn’t right too. This morning Sister Gracie got PTU stuffed and off she went with Dad. Oh, there was nothing wrong, it was her 6 month check up with the Internal Medicine Vet. We will update you later on how it went, but since she had that bout with pneumonia at Thanksgiving a regular check up on her lungs is very important.

The rest of us are quite thankful today that Sister Gracie was the winner. We do love that girl and she is always a special winner, except she did lose the PTU pool, and I did win 17 treats!

Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Hope all is well with Sister Gracie!

Our house just isn’t large enough to keep even one of the PTUs in the house, so they only come into the house for trips to the vet.

Oh Brian you had me laughing!!!! If you keep winning 17 treats you WILL be the next one in the PTU from being overweight! MOL!! xoxo

OMC – that is a GREAT idea….except in our house we rarely get stuffed in PTUs since the v-e-t comes here. we could bet on kittens though….hmmmm Hope Gracie got a good report 🙂

Amen to the PTU making an appearance…it means Trouble for sure. I have a love hate relationship with mine. Mom has to stuff me in it…then when we get to the vet she has to take it apart to get me out…then when it time to leave the vet I try to go through the PTU locked gate.
Hugs madi your bffff

Boy, mom keeps mine out. I’m dictating from it now. But Admiral had to have it hidden or she wouldn’t come into the room.

Brian, maybe you can share some of those 17 treats you won with Sister Gracie when she gets back.

Congrats on scoring 17 treats, bummer for the kitty that lost, though. Maybe you should donate part of your winnings to her.

We hope all went well at Gracie’s visit, always best to stay on top of things. We don’t have to get in those PTUs but we never know for sure where we are headed when we get in the car – it is usually the vet’s:)

We don’t know what a PTU is, either, but we sure hope everything’s okay with Gracie because she’s a CAT and CATS deserve only the best of everything. Including treats. 😉 <3

Congratulations, Brian. I hope Sister got lots of treats as a consolation prize- and a clean bill of health too.

It’s always such a relief to see that you’re not the one who is going for a ride in the PTU!

What a super fun game. Since we have so many kitties in our house as well, we think we are going to try that the next time we see the PTU. Purring and praying that Gracie gets a good report! XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

We have surmised that PTU must be a carrier, but what does PTU stand for exactly? Hope Sister Gracie’s visit went well! Looking forward to the update.
