Greetings, salutations and top of the morn to you all!
Today I have a tutorial the title is
'How not to be crammed in 
your PTU for a unexpected trip to the vet...especially during a good nap'.  
I am addicted to face marking aka rubbing my whiskers and mouth all over my peeps because they stink it helps me identify them as MINE w/o opening my eyes.  
So here is the story about 10 days ago mom reading a book
not paying attention to me.  I hoped up on the arm of the chair.  Her hands were in serious need of marking and I was up to the task.
I'm rubbing one of her knuckles with the left side of my face...when she drops the book while bellowing Madi what is that on your face, let me see your face, she gets me in a choke hold, grabs my chin with one hand.  She nearly rub my furs off my face.  I told her to 
let go of the diva...but she just held tighter.

The woman found an itty bitty bump under my furs on the left side of my face...the arrow in the photo below marks the spot...
Friends every day for the next 9 days she rub it like she expected me to grant her a wish.  Finally on Wednesday 2/17/16...
she told Dad she would not rest until my vet looked at it.
 I told her it was nuttin'...but did she listen?
Off we go to the VET...the woman is paranoid!!
Well I was right it was is a whisker folliculitis aka
in grown whisker that has formed a pimple.  Normally a topical antibiotic cream is  given but since it is so close to my lips the vet suggested we give it some time 'cause I might lick it too much.
If need be, there is an antibiotic injection they can give me.
I was hoping for some salmon flavored cream.

we had to resort to talking about pimples.

In conclusion...remember this bit of mews, if you are a habitual face maker, it can create havoc in your otherwise peaceful life
of lounging and naps!!


  1. Sorry, ya lost me at salmon cream. YUMMMM.

  2. We know how the peeps panic. Roxy was whisked off to the Vets this morning. We're glad you only have a pimple. roxy gave nothing away, though she's been very quiet at home.

  3. At least it wasn't anything important, Madi!

  4. Hehe, I is laffings, sorry Madi butts did your Mom really take you to the VETman fur a pimple......really you do haf to laffs at our peeps!
    It's a bit like Dad trying to remove a freckle from Mia finking it wuz a tic!
    Loves and licky kisses

  5. Hari OM
    Crikey Madi, talk about 'overboard'.... then again - what if mum hadn't got it checked out? On reflection, you might be better to indulge her... hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx (who is very glad it was 'nuttin')

  6. I like the pictures with Madi. I think I should try to do some with my cats while my friend will do my homework. That could be even like some greeting cards!

  7. Thank goodness it was only a pimple, Madi!

  8. We never heard of pimples from face marking. Are you marking things you are allergic to, maybe? (Not your humans, you aren't allergic to THEM!) One of the cats who came before us got pimples from a plastic food bowl, and it turned out he was allergic to plastic.

  9. Hmmm! Sometimes our Mommy gets pimples. Who/what has she been rubbing her face on!!!! Now us dogs are suspicious of our Mommy's whereabouts when she is supposed to be at "work." This post has been most informative! Thank you.

  10. Aw Madi, mom was just be sooper careful with her favorite Diva! Glad it was nothing major. I hope you granted Mom that wish!!!!

  11. Madi I'm so glad the problem is solved :o) My momma said she totally understands your momma, that was the best idea to show it to the vet i-meow-diately :o)just between us: my mother is the one who drove to the vet because of a lump between the pads of my paw. the lump was an ole bubblegum mixed with dirt :o)

  12. OH NO! Raz says he would have gone with you to hold your paw. We're glad it's nothing serious.

  13. Oh yuck! that is at the thought of salmon ice cream.. he he he and a real Yuck at your pimple. I do hope it goes away and you do not have to be stuffed and toted off to the vet again....

  14. We're sure glad it turned out to be ok. But it was just awful that there you were, trying to be cute and sweet and helpful and this mean thing happened to you!

  15. We are SO relieved it's nuttin', Madi!!!
    Cute photos of the Diva!!
    Hugs and nose taps,
    Kathy and Molly

  16. We think maybe you should have granted her a wish, that would have really freaked her out...teeheehee.

    Seriously tho, we are so glad it was only a pimple...our Mama always says better safe than sorry!!
    Dory, Jakey, Arty & Bilbo

  17. Well, at least it was nothing and it's over pretty Madi!

  18. We're so happy to hear your little bump was nothing serious. We hope it goes away on its own or you'll be back at the vet's :(

  19. I'm glad it's nothing serious! Madi, as a cat mama, I am the same as your mom. I worry about anything different on my kitties. I would have done the same thing--hauled you off to the vet. :-) But I do think this calls for some salmon flavored ice cream as a treat!

  20. Oh Madi, no worries, it is just an Angel freckle from that Angel who kissed you while you were napping:) But we do have to allow the humans their fretting:)

  21. Whew! We are very relieved it was just a beauty pimple. Those peeps will never listen.
    Mmmm, liking the sound of that salmon flavoured cream....

  23. We are glad it was only a pimple. So your people really smell bad huh? Can you somehow smear fish on them to make them smell better?

    Keep Calm & Bark On!

    Murphy & Stanley

  24. Oh boy they are worse than the touchy feely vets.
    Lily & Edward

  25. Oh Madi, I am so glad it wasn't anything serious. I am late because my computer decided to take on some Malware and it was taken all day to get rid of it. I think it is all right now.

  26. Our Moms and Dads, sheesh! It's nothing, we say, but do they listen? You know the answer to that. But we're happy to hear your pimple isn't anything worse.

  27. Madi my Mom sounds like your Mom. WE are so glad it was "nothing" and your still the perfect Diva!!!

  28. I am glad it was just a pimple, Madi. best not rub your face on your mom next time.

  29. Would it make you feel better to know that you're just as beautiful WITH a pimple as you are without it?????

    Hugs, Sammy

    Yours sincerely,
    Margaret Thatcher

  34. We're glad to hear it was nothing serious but sorry to hear you had to go to the vet to find out.

  35. It seems like moms kinda freak out whenever there's anything just a little bit abnormal about us. We're sorry you had to go to the vet...but glad it was nothing.

  36. Moms are like salmon cream...........ummmmmmmmmmmmmstella rose

  37. Mommas super overreact sometimes!

  38. Your Mom cracks me up Madi... I would have done the same thing as your Mom and have!


Please leave a meow or bark for Madi...her assistant (aka Mom) will respond in a timely fashion. =^..^=
Life is short, spend it with those who make you laugh
