I Had a Wonderful Life

Hi everyone! My folks had to make the toughest decision of their lives today. They had to let me go, I was getting weaker every day and could no longer swallow or even close my little eyes. They are heartbroken and so is my Grammie and my Purrince. I love them all very much. And I love you all too. Thank you for the purrs and prayers, but God had other plans for me. Mom is going to still take a break for a while, but she will visit you all someday soon.

 

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! Mom said I could write a post today to give an update. Plus I am thankful to still be here so I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. Mom and I are also thankful for all the purrs and prayers and words of encouragement  and advice you have all left. You are giving us strength. Mom says she will try to visit some blogs today, but I am a high maintenance kitty right now. We will blog sporadically for now.

I have stage 4 kidney disease (not sure how I skipped stage 3). My smother and dad are feeding me with a syringe. They have been doing it every few hours for over 24 hours and I haven’t yacked yet. They are hoping I will eat again on my own soon. We are waiting for a compounding pharmacy to mail my phosphorous binder. Have any of you ever tried that? Mom paid extra for overnight delivery, but they took 2 days to get it ready to ship- phooey! I also get fluids at home every other day.

I was strong enough to make both of my folks bleed yesterday. I chomped mom’s finger when she gave me a pill and I scratched dad when he was holding me to be fed.

I have been still going out twice a day. And Grammie came to see me- I love her so very much! She gave my $5 because I don’t want treats right now.

I think I look pretty darn good for being so sick.

And here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day, just a haiku.

Out
I love to go out
fresh wind on my pretty face
warm sun on my back

I love you all and hope to see you soon! One more thing, here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for Friday. Not sure if we will do them, but Annie at McGuffy’s Reader will. Mom came up with the first two and Annie came up with the second two. Mom will definitely read everyone’s posts too.

1. I would never be friends with someone who _____________________________.

2. I will never refuse _____________________________.

3. I have never been to _______________________ , but                              .

4. When it comes to   _________________    , I                              .

 

Miserable Monday

Hi everyone. I am going to take a short break from blogging because of Phoebe’s health. She had been doing so well eating, but she seemed weak so I took her to the vet Saturday.

She was dehydrated so she got her fluids. Her weight went down again despite eating well  and is now 4 pounds 12 ounces. We are waiting on some blood work results that will be in on Monday. Her anemia has gotten worse too, but we don’t know if the cause is kidney disease or something else.

Annie at McGuffy’s Reader will still run the Friendly Fill-Ins on Friday if I am not blogging then. I just want to spend my time with her just in case we don’t have much more time.

All purrs and prayers are appreciated. Thank you.

Thank you Momma and Bear Cat ( Ellie too), Pet Faves, Heart Like a Dog, Feline Opines! I am honored.

Caturday Saturday

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and Ten Things of Thankful.

This is Phoebe on a low branch in a crab apple tree, I used ribbet to add the daisy frame. I think it matches her dress nicely.

Here are my Thankfuls-

  1. Great health insurance that allowed me to see my primary care, allergist and podiatrist this week.
  2. Getting to see a butterfly emerge from a chrysalis ( I had never seen this before) .

3. Being able to buy bobbins for my sewing machine that are already threaded, I could never figure out how to thread them using my machine even with an instructional dvd and manual.

4.Having the luxury of staying home with my cats  almost all the time.

5. Harvest of green beans and yellow ones too that I was able to freeze for winter.

6.A visit to St. Anne’s Shrine with my mom. I was able to restock my supply of St. Christopher medals, I like to give them to people that are going to be traveling. I recently gave my last one too my friend’s daughter who was headed to Jerusalem for 5 months to study dance.

7. Breakfast at our favorite diner with my hubby on Monday ( yummy blueberry pancakes).

8. spending time with my great-niece who cracks me up constantly.

9.No vet trips this week.

10. Phoebe eating well ( knock on wood, 3 times) and thanks to God too, this means more to me than anything else right now.

Phoebe will announce the winner of the coloring book tomorrow.

There is still time to enter, just comment on Thursday’s post.

 

National Coloring Day

Hi everyone! Lots going on today. First off, I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful that I got to spend quality time with Grammie on Monday. I love her so very much.

And here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day. I used all 4 word prompts.

Letter to Santa
Santa you don’t need to send an elf
I will tell you who has been naughty
that elf can sit on someone else’s shelf
Sammy and Penny have issues with the potty
Really, I am the only one that’s nice
the only normal one too
None of my siblings deserve new toy mice
or any gift from you
Sammy, Brody and Emmy like to fight
I could use a new harness dress
size small, I am very light
make it pretty, I have a purrince to impress
PS: Don’t use the chimney
it leads to the furnace
I will leave you a key
so you don’t burn your jolly a**

Today is National Coloring Day so I thought I would have a giveaway to celebrate.

Just leave a comment on today’s post for a chance to win this coloring book for your human and I will be sure mom makes some crocheted toys for you too. I will announce the winner on Sunday. Feel free to tell me how beautiful I am, you would think I would get sick of hearing that, but I never do.

And here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.

1. I have broken __________________ bones.

2. When I go out to breakfast, I order___________________________.
3. As Summer officially comes to an end,                                  .

4. Before this year is over, I really need to                                 .

 

How I Spent My Summer Vacation Blog Hop

Hi everyone! Today Blogville is having a How I Spent My Summer Vacation Blog Hop. A few of my kitties wanted to participate so here they are:

  I became an adventure cat. I go on 2 walks with my folks every day ( except when it rains). And my Grammie visited me a lot- I love her so very much.

I went to Cat Scouts Summer Camp. I made this hat, climbed the Half Dome and had lots of fun with my Scout friends.

I settled into my forever home.

Selfie Sunday

Hi everyone! I am so mad at mom, she locked me in the bathroom for 5 hours* on Friday. The cable guy was here and she said I am a flight risk- phooey!

Grammie will be here Monday to stay with us while mom and dad are out for a few hours. I love her so very much! I am sure she will cater to my every whim except going outside.

My selfie this week is for Free Tony. I read about it on Caren and Cody’s Blog and you can too. I posted it on Twitter @aldf

I am joining The Cat on my Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I have had a great week. I got to see my Grammie. I love her so very much. And I got a letter in the mail from my purrince with a photo of him cuddled up to a photo of me. I am such a lucky girl.

My mom actually bought me some treats. And look-we found a 4-leaf clover. Mom thinks she found it, but I led her right to it. Don’t worry, I didn’t eat it- she put it in her checkbook, she said that needs all the luck it can get- MOL!


Poor Daddy, he was carrying me across the street and a neighbor drove by and beeped and was laughing at him. What is so funny about a man carrying a pretty kitty in a pink dress?

This week for Sammy’s Poetry Day, I decided to choose my own M word. I chose my fellow Crotchety Cougar, Madi to write about.

Madi
Madi is everyone’s friend
on her, you can always depend
Her favorite color is red,
she loves to nap on the bed.
Madi is also a Cat Scout
she would never pout
She doesn’t have a single quirk
and boy that girl can twerk!

And here are the Friendly Fill-ins for Friday. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.


1. September bucket list: 1. _________________ 2. ________________…………..………………..

2. If I came with a warning label, it would say ___________________________________________.

3. Truth be told,                         .

4. I would rather                      than                           .

 

Selfie Sunday

Hi everyone! Check out all this hay! I forgot how much I love hay. I used to steal it from the rabbits when we had them.

Mom locked Dad out of the house at 11 PM the other night. No, they weren’t fighting, mom just isn’t too bright. Dad had gone out to get a breath of air and bring the flag inside, but mom thought he was in the bathroom. She went in the kitchen and noticed the porch light on and the door unlocked and thought he had forgotten them so she shut the light off and locked up. Then the doorbell rang and she got scared wondering who would be at the door at that hour-MOL!

She was supposed to be decluttering today, but she ended up at a tag sale. She was all proud that she got a telescope for Dad for $3 until she got it home and he pointed out that it was missing an eyepiece. I really think I should write a book about all the stupid things she does.

I got to see Grammie on Thursday, I love her so very much. She got to see me walking on my harness.

Millie and Penny want to do selfies today so here they are:
