Twist and groom

Kitties it is important to maintain flexibility as you age. I am over eleven now, but you can see that daily practice has helped me keep supple.
It is important to groom all those hard to reach parts, so join me in a twist and groom.
Lynettea is still worried about me, as I threw up last night. She gave me a dose of my furball medication. I threw up some grass today too. Maybe it is just furballs.
Jai tried to swipe me when I was out for my walk. He was lurking near the gate to my enclosure and as Lynettea opened it he managed to sneak in before she could stop him. He bounded around my fishpond looking at the fish. Fortunately the fish hid under the waterlily leaves, or Jai might have swiped them. Lynettea managed to pick him up and put him out. He protested all the time with a low growling. Lynettea couldn't understand what he was saying and I didn't tell her, as it wasn't very nice.

Diamond, you have very good technique. I think I need to work on my twist a little more.

Gemini said...

Oh you are a very flexible! Our Georgia cat isn't that flexible but she is about 20 years old or so!

Some kitties have no respect for other's property!

So, are you feeling better now Diamond?

Diamond said...

Thank you for visiting, my dear friends. I didn't throw up last night or today, so Lynettea says she is crossing her fingers, whatever that means. I don't think I could cross my claws! I had a little walk in the drippy rain and saw Jai scuttling along the street back towards his home. He is supposed to live next door to me, but you would never think so, the way he wanders. He is deaf and can't hear other cats sneaking up to him.

I Dare You!
Yes, It is ME, Anastasia! Karl was thoughtful enough to put the Dare out on the Day of the Dead, so I can come personally! And if you don't accept the challenge, I might just come again and haunt you, Hahahahahahahahaha!

Monica said...

That is a good twisting job you're doing. I hope you keep feeling better.

I'm glad you're feeling better!!! My mom had a russian blue kitty that looked just like you a few years ago, before we came to live with and dad at our forever home. His name was Fiji. I like your name though. You have nice fur. It is very clean too. Thanks for visiting us! Have a great day.

Excellent flexibility! I hope you're feeling better. I throw up sometimes too. When that happens I get less treats and the throwing up mysteriously stops. Mom and Dad say there is a connection there, but I say it's all in their imaginations.

Hey, Diamond,
just come here to check if you are getting better now :)

Continue praying for you :)

Thanks Michico and Adan for checking on me again. I finally was allowed enough time and a couple of new photos to do a post.
