Put Your Paws in the Air...

After each meal, we have to hold Wylla upright for ten to fifteen minutes to help the food travel from her esophagus to stomach. Somedays it's easy, somedays it's a struggle to get her to hold still and remain in that position.  On occasion she'll doze off which allows us to hold her a wee bit longer, which is always a good thing.

The other day she took a good nap in my hands.  She woke for a moment, stretched, crossed her arms, and instead of tucking them back in, her arms stayed up.   Thankfully, Craig and camera were close to capture her cuteness.

  1. Oh, for heaven's sake. Just when I think she can't make me squee any louder.

  2. AWWW! What a trooper! I'm sure that holding her like that is getting a bit boring for her, and she'd rather be doing other things. No matter, Miss Wylla can't do anything without pouring on the cuteness!

  4. Oh dear I didn't think it could get any more cute, but Miss Wylla has foxed me again too cute by far. I love the pink of her paw pads and then the colours of her fur, very striking

    1. I don't know, but that's a great idea! I can just imagine how cute Wylla would be with all four legs sticking straight out from a Baby Bjorn... And it might be soothing for her, kind of like being wrapped up in a blanket.

    2. I have to stretch her out when I hold her. I think sitting in such a device might keep her too compressed.

  9. Every day I think Wylla has reached the peak of Ultimate Cuteness, and every day she climbs to yet new heights. How do you get anything done with this little furball (plus, of course, her big sister) to love on???

  10. Now I can see why you formed such a strong bond with little Wylla, holding her near you after each feeding :)...these pics show real TLC (as well as major cuteness).

  11. Good golly gosh, Wylla!

    And many thanks to Craig for capturing this charming moment.

  12. Dear little thing. Such a procedure for you all, just so Wylla's food will go down the hatch. Which for the rest of us, you know, it just DOES. It's sad. (But very, very, very adorable.)

  13. That's right Wylla: put your paws in the air and wave 'em like you just don't care. It's amazing how cats can sleep in just about any position. Almost like changing from solid to liquid.

  14. Good God!! Wylla's overall cuteness quotient is almost unbearable! I can't even... GUH.

    Speechless. Cuteness. Paw pad stretch! Floofy ever-so-slightly arced legs! That face! Belly fur! Her coloring! Her sweet gentle spirit that just allows & accepts this TLC.

    She is SUCH a special kitty.

  15. I so admire what a dedicated family effort you all -- Laurie, Bean and Craig -- take on, caring for Wee Wylla.

  16. Too bad we don't all live on your street. We could buy tickets to hold Wylla after her meals!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Full belly and being held close by Mom - definitely nap time. I mean really, aside from Bean, MOST ADORABLE KITTEN ever!

    ReplyDelete
  18. She found the best of homes! I really hope she starts to put on some weight soon and, just maybe, grow out of this need. I love these pics :-)

  22. The epitome of cuteness! Wylla and the Bean are a perfect match for the ultimate cute award (given out rarely and only to exceptional felines). Mary A

  23. This must be a pre-surgery pic with all that belly floof, yes? I'm still hoping to see a shaved belly pic (a la Norma Easterbrook)

    1. It's post-surgery. You just can't see the shaved section in the photos.

  24. "Mooom, if I hold my arms in the air, will it make the food go down faster??"

  25. Wow she really is tiny. With your hand on her, it's easy to see how much of her is floof.

  26. There is just no end to the cuteness that is Wylla!

  27. I wonder if Wylla ever wishes she could eat at the Big Girl table with Bean.

    What a sweet life story you are sharing with everyone. Thanks.

  28. Will carrying her around like that still work when she grows up? I suppose if she stay small it might.

    1. Mega-E cats tend to be pretty small - only five or 6 pounds full grown. She's pretty used to the routine so hopefully it won't be an issue.

  29. So adorable! And thanks to you and Craig and Charlene for being there to take care of her!
