Goodbye My Sweet Snowball

It is with a broken heart , I am writing this post. My sweet Snowball left us this morning. She had been having health problems since May 15th, but I was afraid to write about them for fear of jinxing her. We finally had our appointment with the cardiac specialist today and came home armed with several medicines to help ( she had just been on lasix to keep her stable). And sadly, she passed away the minute we got in the house.

Earth Day

Hi, today we are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop. Phoebe wanted her art to celebrate Earth Day so we went to wishafriend.com and found this:

And for the A-Z Challenge we have the letter S for Snowball. I wanted Snowball to model with it, but she didn’t want to pose so here is Joanie.

  She didn’t lick this one like she did the pickle.

We were very sad to see that Bionic Basil’s family has lost two of their beloved kitties, Humphrey and Snowie.

Happy Easter!!!!

Happy Easter everyone!!! We hope the Easter Bunny was good to you.

It looks like Brody is the official Catburry Bunny, he even got featured on The Pet Blogger Showcase by Bear Cat and Feline Opines and Heart Like a Dog. Thank you!

  Not to be outdone, Phoebe was featured on the PetFaves blog. Thank you!

We are joining The Cat on my Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop. Have a great day everyone!

 

 

Dr. Seuss Day!

Hi everyone! Happy Dr. Seuss Day!

Brody wants to thank everyone for the Gotcha Day wishes. He is here to announce the winner of the Dr. Seuss giveaway.

  Congratulations to A Wizard and Angel!

Today we are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful that we got to see Grammie Wednesday and she will be back today too. I love her so very much!

And now for my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day,  featuring the letter L.

Lips
Lips are to give a kiss
mine make me want to hiss.
Stupid rodent ulcer ,
I’m not even a mouser.
I wish it would go away
and not come back another day.

Yup, I have that rodent ulcer again. It is the same one which never healed all the way and when I got off the prednisone, it came right back. Now I have a liquid medicine called Atopica, it is for allergies. I need it daily for a month and then we will cut back. Mom was glad that I gained 6 ounces because she thought I was too thin before. The worst part of going to the vet was that Millie had to go for a thyroid checkup and he doesn’t travel well. He always poops- it was not a fun ride, good thing it wasn’t too cold because Mom had to open a window.

Mom is joining Wandering Through the Shelves Thursday Movie Picks. This week is “On the Run”. Here are her choices:

  1. The Fugitive ( 1993)- I think this is Harrison Ford’s best film, he plays a Dr. accused of murdering his wife. He goes on the run to find the one-armed man who did it.
  2. Splash ( 1984)- Tom Hanks falls in love with a mermaid ( Daryl Hannah) and they are on the run because scientists want to capture her to study her.
  3. Double Jeopardy ( 1999)- One of my favorite movies, Ashley Judd’s husband fakes his murder and she goes to jail for it. Once released, she is determined to find her son and prove her innocence.

And last, but not least are the fill-ins, Mom came up with the first 2 and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second 2. Please pray for their sweet Maggie as she is going to be having exploratory surgery soon.

Fill-ins:
1. My favorite herb or spice is __________________.
2. An herb/spice I dislike is ________________.
3.Lately, I have been working on                               .

4.This Winter was                                    .

 

Mardi Gras!

Joanie has no shame 🙂

Happy Gotcha Day Brody!!!!

Hi everyone! We are celebrating Brody’s Gotcha Day today, but apparently I have the day wrong. I was just looking for last year’s post about him and I now see it was February 23rd.

Here is the link to last year’s post.   This is one of his first photos, he was scared and got up as high as he could.

This is him now , all relaxed.

And now Brody has some things to say.

Hi, this is my first time getting to write. Thank you all for being my friends and making me feel so welcome. I want to thank beautiful Leia for being my girlfriend, I am so lucky.

  And thank you to my Pipo, Minko and Mr. Jack Freckles for this beautiful card.

Mom said I could have a giveaway to thank everyone for being so sweet to me. Being that Dr. Seuss Day is coming up on Thursday, I thought I would do a Dr. Seuss giveaway.

   There is a catnip mat, a blue water activated fish and a Cat in the hat styled hat. All you need to do is comment on today’s post and you will be entered in the giveaway. The winner will be announced on Thursday.

Phoebe said she isn’t going to call me a suck up anymore- isn’t that nice? And I want to say that I love Grammie very much too!

Mom says I can join Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays Blog Hop because I am awww..worthy.

Happy Valentine’s Day!!!
