Kelly


Kelly loves to go outside and cold and snow don't bother him at all.  He has a very thick floofy coat to keep him warm.  He likes going out even when it's cold so much that he had a bit of a problem this last winter.  He had been out enjoying himself, but collapsed on the sidewalk in front of the house.  He was rushed to the vet, who found nothing wrong with him.  It turns out that hypothermia in cats can bring on a seizure and that is apparently what happened to Kelly.  He is fine now, except for his irritable bowel syndrome.  He had quite a yakfest before that was discovered to be the problem.  His diet is watched much more carefully now and he is losing some weight, which is good, because he had gotten a bit too heavy.

                                   Kelly likes to walk in the snow,
                                   But he doesn't like to take it slow.
                                           He runs for the door
                                           To get in before
                                   His mancat toes turn as cold as the snow.

That's pretty unique for a kitty to like the cold, plus wettness of the snow. He is quite a tough cat!
p.s. thanks for your kindness and comments on my blog about my Fritz. I really appreciated it.

We didn't know that about cats and hypothermia. We're glad we felines here don't go out in the cold. We find the house cold enough, thank you. Kelly is a handsome kitty.

Kelly is a hansum cat. We don't get snow, but if it's cold we stay in by the fire.

It was a surprise and an honor to be chosen as today's subject! Thanks very much also for the cute limerick.

I'm fine, now that I'm getting lots of stinky goodness. And all I had to do was yak up the dry food a few times. I trained them well, didn't I?
