Blue eyes

The feathers go well with my blue eyes, don’t they?

And notice how the Cheesewhiz is envious of my styling ways.

      Thanks to everyone on the Cheesewhiz eye question. We may need to do a blog about, but, yes, she did injure the skin around her eye – months ago. It was a cut that did not heal quite right and she re-opened it a few times. We treated it with a topical antibiotic and thought we finally had it healed, but when we stopped the topical cream, the patch you see came back. basically, it is now a bare spot where the fur is not growing, but is not an open wound of any sort. Cheesewhiz just thinks it makes her look tougher.

    Poor Rusty….She thought you were the chicken!

    What is that spot next to Cheesewhiz’s left eye? Did she injure herself?

    A guy sees something he wants, a guy helps himself. Thats it.

    Kisses,

    The hu-Mom says this leaves her speechless, that it’s hilarious, and she’s surprised Rusty would let “The Cheezie One” get away with going after his prize.
