Hi, friends….Noodle here!

As tough as it is, life goes on. The hardest part is making sure that you move forward and don’t waste the precious life you are still capable of living after someone you love has lost that same ability.

Although initially depressed, I do believe that Jamison is rapidly returning to normal.


This guy has been trying to get me to play like his life depends on it. Doesn’t he realize that I can’t just trust him all of a sudden? After all the years of torture he thinks we’re just supposed to be BFFs?

Mom tells me that it’s just me and him and I should learn to trust him. She says that life will be a lot easier if he and I got along. She doesn’t like worrying about me while she’s at work. She thinks he tortures me without Khia here to protect me.

One day at a time, I say…

Anywho, yesterday was my first day where I was acting like myself. You know why? My Grandpa came to visit me. I was SO very happy to see him. I was so happy that when I was outside and the neighbor drove by on his riding mower, I decided to act like a mad man and got myself so worked up that I had a small seizure. It was SO scary. I lost all control of my legs and my head was going side to side. First I was wobbly and then my little legs just fell right out from underneath me.

I haven’t been drinking enough water and Florida is getting very hot this time of year. After calming down, re-hydrating and cooling off, I was much better and everything is a-okay! I bet you can imagine what that did to Mom and Dad, though. I honestly didn’t mean to scare them like that.

As you can imagine, Mom was skeptical about taking me on an adventure today. She made me drink lots of water before we left and she packed a bottle of water for me for while we were out.

We got in the car and she told me we were going to the flea market! At first, all I heard was “flea” but then it clicked! I LOVE THE FLEA MARKET! Everyone tells me how cute I am and they all want to pet me.

I was SO happy to be there.


We spent most of the time in the part that’s covered just to be safe. We did wander to the “garage sale” area in the field for a little bit to see if the dog supply person was there but they weren’t 😦

"Hmmm, what's in that box?"

“Hmmm, what’s in that box?”

As I hoped, everyone we passed said, “Oh, how cute!” or “What a cute dog!” Two people even commented about my spots saying they’ve never seen such markings on a pup. I felt VERY special.


“All of those people are talking about ME, Mom!”

We stayed for a little over an hour and then Mom demanded that we go home before there was a repeat of yesterday’s catastrophe. It was fine with me. I was beat.

"Can't. Keep. Eyes. Open"

So tired.

It was nice to get out of the house. It was also very nice to come home and sleep because it is just very exhausting to be pet and “oohed” and “aahed” over.

I have another adventure on the books – tomorrow evening I finally get to Skype with my girl, Lexi! Lexi, sweetheart, I can’t wait to see you! Surely that will make me smile more ❤

One more thing before I go. The mandatory adventure blooper picture:


*snicker* I channeled my inner-Khia for this one.

Until tomorrow, friends. Good night!

    Today’s adventure sounded like fun! Noodle, it sounds like you made a lot of people happy just by being you. I’m glad you got to see your grandpa yesterday, but sorry that you had a seizure, those are scary for everyone involved. Looking forward to reading about how you and Jamison are getting along. Our Linus kitty thinks he’s a Golden Retriever and our pups don’t have the heart to tell him he’s not. Take care.

  6. Oh Noodle I’m so happy you have a fun outing – just what you needed – along with your visit from your Grandpa of course. That seizure was scary for you AND your humans but yes it’s important to stay hydrated when it’s HOT. We’re still COLD here so that’s not a problem but where you live – indeed it is. As for you and Jamison – I think since it’s just the two of you now it might be a great idea to come to terms with him…..who knows – you might wind up as “besties” !!!!

    Hugs, Sammy

    • Oh, at this flea market all you have to do is bring some junk from the 70s-90s and they’ll give you fleas in return.

      Jamison…. Hmmmm. Can you ever really trust a retired street cat?

    Hahah, love your blooper. Scaring your mom is NOT cool, buddy. I go into coughing fits when I get so excited and my mom says if I do that again, she will personally strangle me. Go figure! And be kind to Jamison ..

    How cool to be treated like such a celeb,
    It sounds like you gave your Mom a super huge scare with your seizure thing
    Surely if you came home from the market with pedigree fleas for Jamison it would be OK ?? if you let me know if this is an option as I’m seriously considering such a gift in payback because Neurotic Cat & I nearly touched noses all friendly like then she hissed right in my face !!!
    Love n’ stuff

  13. Boy you’ve been through the mill, Noodles. Glad to hear you’re starting to get back to normal, even if normal will be different. Take good care and drink plenty of water to stay hydrated. Hugs and puppy kisses. ❤

  14. Aghhh, Mom’s making me get a bath for our skype call. Aghhhh, glug, glug. P.S. Stay away from Jamison until he proves he is no longer evil. P.P.S. Flea market? Seriously? Next thing you know your Mom will be taking you to a flea circus! Well, as long as you were the center of attention and had a good time…:)

  16. Man, you got a visit from grampa…how super! I hope that seizure was just a one time thing. They are no fun to deal with. Probably lack of water and a hot day, like you said. You went to the flea market too…you had a full day my friend.

    • Don’t be scared! I’m fine now. Mom gave me watered down apple juice after it happened (i was refusing to drink water) . Kitty friend, apple juice is AMAZING! I’m thinking abut a friendship with Jamison. But do you know he rode me like a house again today?! He really needs to stop that.
