Faraday's First Fridays

Welcome to my monthly Advice Column.
These gems of Wit and Wisdom are for Felines Only.
No Humans (or Big Sisters) Allowed.

Lesson # 493: Cool Kitty Talk is for Cats.

Tell your human to step awaaay from the slang. Leave this to the experts.

Case in point: Your human comes in from shoveling snow and announces that it is Freez-i-licious outside.

Now a cat would understand that words like 'freeze' should never be partnered with '-licious'.

Nomilicious? Check. Wand-o-licious? Oh, yeah.

Heat-i-licious? I rest my case.


A Request for Kind Thoughts Today

Faraday is undergoing surgery this morning to extract four molars due to tooth resorption.
We know our little guy won't be feeling tip-top this evening, and will be watching him carefully throughout tonight and tomorrow.

Thank you!

  5. @Bernadette, FAR too true for our liking! It's because February is pet dental health month and our vet offers a discount. Next Friday it's Allie's turn, and the following Friday Maxwell gets his cleaned.
    Both of them are just routine cleanings, though, no teeth extractions. Whew!

  6. Sending purrs and prayers to dear Faraday....hoping all goes well! xoxo

    For a day.
    Or at least a few hours.
    A couple minutes?

  22. Sending you lots of purrs--and I think maybe I am going to be finding out first-hand about that dental work stuff one day soon. Sigh. Hope Maxwell has forgiven you and is being extra nice. XOXOX Allie too, of course!

  23. Faraday.... we are sending you all sorts of purrrrrs to feel better. Not good to have a sore mouth. We hope it heals quickly and you're soon chasing around after the others.

    hugs from all of us,
    Bugsy, Knuckles and HH
