I'm feeling better!

Mommy was feeling horrible when she found out I had tapeworm since she thought it made her a bad mom. So she was relieved to hear from many of you that it’s pretty common.  The good news is that we think the worm moved out the same day we applied the medicine. I am feeling so much better, and I have a bigger appetite now. Mommy thinks this is funny since I’m no longer eating for two (or more).  Mommy on the other hand has not completely recovered. She is still traumatized by the tapeworm. During the week or so she was finding the little sesame seeds around the house, she was trying to figure out what it was. She played with them, squished them, rolled them between her fingers to try to figure out what it was.  She even rehydrated them to see if it’ll sprout a leaf. Basically she was touching them with her bare hands.  She is now constantly washing her hands with soapy hot water that they are starting to feel a bit dry. If you want to see what these faux sesame seeds look like rehydrated, click here.

Some of you might be wondering if I have forgiven mommy for giving me a bath. I have.  Don’t think I didn’t put up a fight. I left a deep scratch on mommy’s boob during the bath. I was aiming for a “Z” for Zorro...i mean Zero, but I didn’t get a chance to finish.  Saturday morning, I tried to choke mommy in her sleep.  I pawed at her throat, until she was gasping for air. I think we’re even now.

Speaking of Saturday, I thought mommy was going to take me to the vet since i got shoved into the kitty backpack. Mommy told me that if I didn’t stop struggling, we’ll both die. She’s such a drama queen.  Turns out the fire alarm went off for the building. I’m so used to mommy’s alarm clock going off for an hour that it didn’t bother me. Getting shoved into a bag however did.  We went outside, and went around the building to make sure there wasn’t a fire. Turns out someone on the 3rd floor set off the fire alarm when they burned their popcorn in the microwave. Noob. 


  1. We like that you almost got to sign your "artwork"!!! Good one. Hurrah for feeling better!

  2. Wow! You kinda had a ruff week, Zero. We hope this week is better to ya! xoxo

    Pee Ess - Nice body art! Har-har!

  3. You have both had some awkward yucky days, Zeroichi! But it seems like things will get more normal now...

  4. Zeroichi, I'm glad to hear you are feeling better. It's cool that you left your mark on your mom!

  5. It has been a rough week for both you and your mom! I am glad you are feeling better, I hope your mom gets there soon!

  6. Dang, you almost completed that Z! I'll have to try that sometime. I scratch my mom a lot, but I've never tried to leave my signature. We're glad your mom feels better about everything. She is a great cat mom who loves you very much - sometimes things just happen!

    Love, Zoe
