                                 This Is My Life Now

Well, first off, I guess you can see I haven't exactly been starving, though I maintain it is simply an unflattering camera angle.

But my real issue today is that like most senior citizens, I have acquired a little medication corner of my very own (the Human has had hers longer, 
ha ha meow!).

As you can see below, there is nothing I actually have to ingest, and frankly there is nuffing that causes me any real discomfort. It is more the abstract idea that I have need of these accoutrements, at least for the nonce. Isn't that a nice word, nonce? 
Perhaps useful for Scrabble


  1. That's quite the arsenal, Spitty. Those fleas don't stand a chance.

  2. Wow! That's quite the flea-killing corner you have there!

  3. Ooooh Spitty. I'm old enough to know how it feels to have a medication arsenal - and I admit that I was in shock for several months while I got used to the notion that for the first time in my life I needed to take tablets each and every day. The good news is (i) that you do get used to it and (ii) in your case, at least there's 'nil by mouth'.

    But I'm going back to harp on about my belief that this flea invasion is down to the Human. I'm waiting to hear what the compensation package she's offering is: let the negotiations commence!

  4. That's not a medical corner, that's the armory! Weapons of war! I hope you win soon! Hazmat suits are such a pain... ;)
    I know that's just a bad angle because I refuse to believe your head is that small! Smooches!

  5. We agree - that's no medication corner, it's the Weapons of Flea Destruction arsenal.
    And 'nonce' has a different meaning in English and may be okay within Scrabble, but other words are more powerful on the points. Apparently.

  6. Not being famiiar with fleas (though an occassional tick TBT finds right fast), we find the medicine shelf amazing. And you say you stay inside? Well we wonder WHO might be bringing those fleas in. Not YOU, right? MOL! Think about it!

  7. That reminds mom of of the arsenal that mom kept for Robin who WAS an indoor-outdoor girl back in the 90's. Until they invented the flea prep for cats after having had it for dogs (of course) for several years...she was eaten up with them despite our daily flea coming and baths. Robin became a rogue Klingon while being bathed. How 6 pounds could be so mom around here knows. Mom still has Robin's flea comb. Robin was allergic to the useless flea collars but at the time we didn't know they were useless. The arrival of the back of the neck med was a miracle in comfort for her.

  8. Oh yeah, those fleas don't stand a chance!
    We like your relaxation corner too.

  9. Spitty, be thankful that is all you are dealing with and nobody is trying to stuff pills down your throat. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  10. Some day it will all be just a memory, Spitty.

    Unless, of course, you let your human out again without a collar.

  11. Spitty, apparently you've become fast friends with those fleas...since they won't leave you alone!

  12. We had them a while back and there's a lot brushies with the flea comb nightly, but since we were outfitted with the collar of doom, we are flealess for months now.

  13. Glad you found a new fav brush. Hope the fleas go away soon!

  14. Whoa! You should see MY medicine cabinet. I have more stuff than TW and she’s a hunnert.

  15. Well Spitty, Mom was at the V.E.T. today and heard a lady telling the tech that her groomer was upset with her because her Frontline was not keeping the fleas off of her pup this year. Glad your Mom has a good arsenal for you since they seem to have invaded no matter what this year!.


Leave me a meow or a hiss; I don't mind a hiss or two. . . or even a bitey.
