About pilch92

I'm a happily married 44 year old woman. My hubby ( David) and I have been married for 21 years (October 24, 1992). We started out with one cat and now have 15. 15 is my magic number ( David may like a slightly smaller one), but when any pass away, I don't replace the one that is lost, but I do rescue another. When we got married we were like most people and wanted a family. At some point we both decided that we love our fur family. Some people are made to be parents of 2-legged children and we are made to be parents of those with 4 legs ( although we did have one with 3 legs once-RIP Brina). It has taken me years to realize that this is my calling. I want to help all cats any way I can. If I can write about something that happened to one of my cats and help another in the process then I will be happy.

Heaven’s Newest Angel

Our sweet boy left us very early this morning. We were both with him. Thank you Ann of Zoolatry

Thank you Pam of Two Spoiled Cats

 

Thank you Pipo’s Mom

I always say the more nicknames a cat has, the more loved he is. Millie was very loved, we called him Milton Bradley the third, Miltoni, Millie Macaroni, Miller, Mr. Magoo, The MIllyard Man, Ole Blue Eye and so many more names.

He loved his mousie

and his Dad’s lap

and his candy cane.

He loved to be stretched too .

And a good nap in his Dad’s chair.

 A little tv too.

 

He was so unique with his 15 inch tail, one blue eye and one green eye.I will miss the pitter patter of Millie feet running around the house.And singing him his bedtime song.

We have lost 5 cats in a one year period. I sure hope God gives us a break now.

Thank you all for the purrs and prayers. You are all a blessing.

I will be back for the Fill-Ins on Friday, you can get them on Thursday from my co-host, Lorianne.

 

 

Sunday Selfies

Hi everyone. We are joining The Cat on My Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop

Joanie had some help with her selfie, The Great One took her photo. Pretty good for a 4 yr. old. I will admit that the kid is better with scissors than I am. I blame everything on my being a lefty.

 

This is most likely Millie’s last selfie unless a miracle occurs. This was taken a few days ago, he is much weaker now. At this angle, you can’t see all his tumors along his back and on his poor little head.

 

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 191

Hi everyone! Time for the Friendly Fill-Ins. Be sure to add your link so everyone can visit you. Or you can answer in the comment section. Thanks to all who participate.

  1. I could not _________ without _________________.
  2. A simple pleasure I enjoy is _____________.
  3. If I could change one thing about myself, __________________.
  4.  It is hard to find _________________these days.

My answers:

  1. I could not sew without pre-threaded bobbins. They are the best invention. Ever since I took home ec in high school, I had trouble threading a bobbin with the sewing machine. So much easier to buy a package of them.
  2. A simple pleasure I enjoy is napping with kitties.
  3. If I could change one thing about myself, it would be my weight. I’d like to lose a lot of it.
  4. It is hard to find people with manners these days. I get so annoyed when someone can’t bother to say thank you when I hold the door for them.

We are also joining Create with Joy’s Friendship Friday and Comedy Plus’ Feline Friday.

Herr is a flashback of Angels Phoebe and Angel Prancie having a boxing match, Angel Stinky is looking on. They used to do this when hungry to get us to give them a snack.

I am having some computer troubles and can’t copy and past right now so please use the link at my co-host’s blog to add yours.

 

 

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

Joanie is thankful that she has a play date with The Great One today .She has her Rapunzel dress ready to wear .

I am skipping the poetry this week because my brain is still in a fog from Prancie and dealing with our sick Millie.

Yesterday, two of you guessed correctly who done it. Thanks to all who played.

I head butted the coffee

I spilled the water- and I had fun doing it

I ate the steak and I would do it again

Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. I came up with the first two and my co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.

Police line up- who did what?

Who pushed Dad’s cup of water off the table?

Who head butted Dad and made him spill his cup of coffee?

Who stole a piece of mom’s sirloin tips right off her plate?

EZCatPads

Hi everyone! I have a review today, don’t worry, it is short.

*Disclaimer- I received 2 EZCatPads in exchange for a fair review. All opinions are my own.

We got through a lot of pads like this because our older cats tend to pee over the edge of the box. I put the pads on the side to catch everything.

Most of the pads I have tried tend to leak through, but these are very thick and did not. My only complaint is the size is very small.

You know Joanie’s pet, Gremmie is small so you can get an idea of how small they are. They are supposed to be used in litter boxes and can hold 500 ml of liquid. They offer free shipping and the more you buy, the better the savings. For more information, click here

Mewsic Monday

Hi everyone. Thank you all for the kind words, prayers and purrs you left for us for Prancie. I knew when I left the house Wednesday morning to go to jury duty that it was the day Prancie would leave us. I was scraping the ice off my car windows and heard the Phoebe bird. I don’t usually hear it this time of year. I knew that meant Phoebe had come for her friend.

The next day, I was driving over to visit The Great One and Prancie’s song was on the radio. I know that was a sign too. Prancie’s song is a disco song from the 1970’s and is rarely on the radio. I have chosen that for my Mewsic this week. I used to change the words and sing to her ” Do a little dance……Prancie Pants”. Up until a few years ago, she did prance around like she was dancing.

We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays and Mewsic Moves Me hosted by Curious as a Cathy,Xmas Dolly, JAmerican Spice and Stacy Uncorked.The theme for Mewsic Monday is choose your own this week. Here is my song:

 

 

I  can’t believe I took this photo of Prancie just a week ago.

  I want to keep her memory alive with Prancie’s Prayer so I am offering the Kindle version for free from January 13-17th. Click here for your copy.

 

 

Forever Loved

Prancie left us at 1:30 PM today. I was stuck at jury duty and didn’t get home until 12:30, but she waited for me. David kept telling her I would be home soon. I am thankful for the 15 wonderful years she was with us. She was the sweetest girl and so full of personality.

She had been declining since last week and we wondered if she would make it to her Dad’s birthday which she did. Our world will never be the same without her, she was such a big part of our lives.

We were so blessed to have one last Christmas with her.

Rest in Peace sweet girl until we are together again.

Thank you to Pam and Ingrid for the beautiful badges.

I won’t be blogging for a while. Thank you for understanding.

Wordless Wednesday

What? We want to help put away the groceries.

Sorry if I don’t get to visit your blog today, I have jury duty. And Prancie is not doing well. She is eating less even with an appetite stimulant and anti nausea meds.
