Thank you all for the purrs and prayers for Emmy. She is eating again. I hope she stays healthy, but I know the antibiotic shot has an anti inflammatory effect that helped Phoebe eat when she first had one so I am cautiously optimistic. I do think the addition of Trouble stressed her which could have led to a UTI.
Hi everyone! We want to wish a Happy Purim, Chag Purim Sameach! to all our Jewish friends. And to celebrate, Emmy has agreed to wear our Queen Esther costume this year.
And here are some our our past Queen Esthers-
Here is our poem to go with this photo-
Sometimes you can hardly stay afloat
wishing you were on a boat.
Then you open your eyes
and see that you can improvise.
After a little rest
a lifeboat may come from the west.

Hi everyone! Today, for Brian’s Thankful Thursday, I am going to show some photos of my Angel kitties from Christmas past. I am thankful for all the cats that I have had the honor of sharing my life with, these photos are just the 5 who have left us since I started blogging.

Loud booming noises
I am told they are pretty
can’t see under the bed

Joanie has today off with pay because Phoebe told her that last Monday was a holiday and she should have gotten twice as many treats for working. They threatened to report me to NUCAT.
I just completed The Good Son: JFK Jr. and The Mother He Loved by Christopher Anderson. My mom has always been a fan of the Kennedy family and has read several books about them. This is my first one and I already ordered another one from the library. I found this book very interesting and sad. This family has had more than their share of tragedies. I admire that the whole family was so hard working and committed to public service. They were far from perfect, but they did help others.
Today is the two-year anniversary of Lucy’s passing. I miss her every day. She was my grumpy, yet affectionate girl. She always loved to be on my lap and she came running whenever I would blow my nose ( I think she assumed I was crying every time).
Hi everyone! Today we are skipping the usual Monday blog hops because it is Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day started in 2015 by Deborah Barnes of Zee & Zoey.
This is a special day to remember all our furbabies waiting for us at The Rainbow Bridge. They have all left their pawprints on my heart and will never be forgotten.
KaChoo, my first cat ( 1994-2010)-this is her last photo , taken at TUFTS when I was visiting her.
Please visit the blog hop at Zee and Zoey’s see everyone’s posts for today.
I haven’t had much time to read between Christmas shopping, decorating and card writing. I am reading one fun book though on my Kindle. My Mom is going to get me the paperback for Christmas, but I am not a patient woman so I had to see it right away with The Kindle.
Makin’ Biscuits: Weird Cat Habits and the Even Weirder Habits of the Humans Who Love Them by Deborah Barnes is filled with wonderful antidotes than any cat parent will appreciate. And if you sometimes feel like you are a little crazy because of the extremes you will go through to please your cat, then this will make you feel “normal”.
I am honored that two of the stories I sent in were chosen. One is about my Angel Lucy and the other is about our Millie and what we do for him before he goes to bed.
You can get yours on Kindle or paperback at Amazon, it also makes a great gift for any cat lover on your gift list.
Lucy used to love to write to Santa. This is her letter in 2014, she wrote, ” Dear Santa, that elf you sent to spy on us sleeps with the fishes. Lucy”.
Hi everyone! I have a great giveaway starting today. Mom loves Halloween so much that we are doing two for Halloween. This one is black cat themed in celebration of the new book Layla of Cat Wisdom developed and edited to promote black cat adoptions called Black Cats Tell All.
The giveaway is for this beautiful catnip mat with black cats on it, a small purse with black cats( brown ones and grey ones too) on it, a black cat silicone trivet and a crocheted pumpkin. To enter, type black cats rock! in the comments ( you can write something else too, but that is all you need to enter). I will announce the winner on Tuesday.
I saw my Grammie yesterday. I love her so very much. I don’t think she loves me though, she didn’t bring me any treats.
The word for today in the #JHC Challenge is ghost.
Mom thought this photos of Lucy from 2010 would be perfect:
