Vinny's View

Hi, everybody,

I'm Vinny Blackwhisker and old Tom has allowed me to post for him this week. I think it's a double-dog dare as to whether or not I can really do it, whether I'm reliable enough to make sure a post gets done at all.

I'm not in the habit of forgetting things, thank you very much. I like my travel and I travel light. I do as I damn well please. I won't ever have a blog of my own or anything even close. I'm only doing this because Tom doesn't think I will...and, he doesn't think I'll keep it clean.

I thought I'd put in another picture of the two of us. I met Tom when he first came to Temptation Parish. In fact, truth be told, our roles could have been reversed. I might very well have gotten to the housekeeper first, won her over with my charms and been Father Vinny. But, that would have forced me to change.

The holidays are coming up and I can't wait. All the crawl-under or into places will be lit with candles and sparkly things. Yes, I go to church, too, but I lay low. I like it better that way.

So, keep me in your prayers. My thyroid is acting up which means pills, and I look like a stringbean. I'm getting old, too. I'll be turning 17 soon. Little old lady cats are starting to look hot.

In for Tom,
Vinny

Wow, at eight, I must look like a kitten to you, Vinny! I hope the pills help your thyroid issues - I am purring for you.

Kea said...

Vinny, Annie's 10 and hyper-t...but well, she and Felix of the Katnip Lounge have a crabby long-distance thing going.

We're sending you lots of purrs, though, and keeping you in our purrayers!

We hope those pills help make you feel better. We know a lot of good looking "more mature" ladycats would love a handsome ManCat like you for a boyfriend.

It's nice to meet you Vinny - we hope your pills will help you with your thyroid problems.
We are sure there are some lovely ladycats who would love to get to know you better.

Maybe you could become "Brother Tom ?"

Marg said...

Oh Vinny, we are sorry you have the darn thyroid thing. One of us, Holly has that too. The pills will help a lot. Holly has been good for three years now. Take care and good to meet you Vinny. Give Tom our best.

Hi Vinny, I like your perspective on life. I don't have any experience with Thyroid issues myself, but I have lived with several felines with similar issues. Maybe someone can put your pills in some yummy food. That's what my mom did with my sweet sister Daisy.

Your pal, Pip

Father Tom said...

Well, well, well, Vin, you did it! I really appreciate you..

Vinny: Never mind that. You're lucky, you know. What a nice bunch of furriends came by just to say hello. Maybe I'll drop in once in awhile.

Tom: Sure, do it! By the way..take care of yourself. And..always keep your tail where you can see it. (Vinny didn't hear him, he had already taken off, tail and all, around the corner.)

That thyroid thing is no fun, but at least you are doing OK with your pills. And you are a pretty pawsome blogger, Vinnie!!

Brian said...

I think you did darn good Vinny and my sisters and I will be sending you non-stop purrs for yo to feel much better!

Mr Puddy said...

" Little old LadyCats look hot? " That's a really good thought, Father Tom
make your heart feel tickle : )

Luna T. Katt said...

Laila and Minchie said...

Sorry, Vinny, but we don't have any old lady cats here, but we think you would find Laila to your liking.

The Island Cats said...

Hi ya, Vinny! Sorry you got the thyroid thing...we hope the pills help you. We look forward to hearing more from you this week.

Hi Vinny and Tom
Thanks for looking by on my blog. What a joy to find your message!
Wow, Vinny, for your age you look young and you did a great job here. Don't worry about the thyroid, my old cat lady (who unfortunately died last May) lived a long time with this decease, but you need to take those pills. If you don't like them, tell your human to mix it with some tuna or salmon paste... my old girl was fond of it.
Take care and have some fun with father Tom

Greetings from one granny cat to another. I don't know how old I am but I have been with SS's family for over 12 years when I came as a grown cat.

Cara n Crew said...

Well done, Vinny! We hope to see you around here again. We'll be thinking about you and purring for you.

Vinny - it';s so very nice to meet you. You did good - guess you are showing Father Tom you can do it after all. Sorry to hear bout your thyriod problems. The cat before me had tyriod problems and did very nicely on pills for several years. I hope you will be around for a long time yet - someone has to keep that Tom in check.

William said...

Hi Vinny and Father Tom,
Its nice to meet you both. I think you did a fine job posting for the blog, maybe he'll let you come over more often. I hope your pills make you better too, I've never taken any but everyone here says that Pill pockets make them taste better.
Later Dudes!

OKcats said...

Hey there Vinny - nice to see you! We hope your thyroid gets straightened out - no cats here have had to deal with that, but we know it's not fun. Good job on the post, and please say hello to Mr. Father Tom - it was very gracious of him to share his blog!

meowmeowmans said...

Vinny, we think you're looking great. And great job on the blog post! We're sending our best purrs and prayers that those thyroid meds work some wonders.
