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.

 

 

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.

Awww….Mondays

Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays That is all we are joining this week because I have a cold and I am all tired out from the Christmas festivities.

As many of you know, Prancie appeared at our outdoor nativity in January 2005. It used to be on the other side of the house at a door we rarely use. This year, we put it by the main entrance to our house. Knowing it was going to be Prancie’s last Christmas, my hubby wanted a photo of her out there. She wanted no part of it and made for the house as quickly as possible, but I got one decent shot.

If you are not familiar with her book, you can click here to see it on Amazon.

Penny will be here with an important tip tomorrow. Plus she will be modeling her New Year’s Eve gown.

Penny’s Tips Volume 57

Hi everyone! I bet a lot of you bake at the holidays. These tips are for you.

Look at all this butter mom bought for only $1.99 a pound. She actually had more, but used a lot for baking.She got it at a grocery store called Aldi. If there is one near you, you should check it out. It is very plain inside and you have to bring your own bags and do the bagging yourself, but it is worth it for the savings. Mom got a dozen eggs for 69 cents, a half gallon of milk for 75 cents and 5 pounds of flour for $1.99. I checked on google and Aldi is in 35 states so I am sorry if there is not one in your state because you are missing out.

They also have an aisle of gift items including sweaters for pets. Mom scored this one for me for $4.99.

It is pretty cute. That is not a hole, it is for a leash to go through.

Now I have to go back to taking care of Rosie. Not sure why I got stuck with her, but she is pretty nice. She is a little nosey though, last night she opened all the kitchen cabinets and knocked a mug out of one- good thing it didn’t break.

We are joining Comedy Plus’ Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

 

 

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 186

Hi everyone! Time for the Friendly Fill-Ins. Please leave your link  at my co-host’s Four-Legged Furballs. I still can’t switch to text version to add the code and I haven’t had time to figure out the problem. You can also answer in the comment section. Thank you to all who participate. Don’t forget to add your link to the hop so everyone can visit you.

1. _____________________ stresses me this time of year.
 
2. My favorite holiday film is ______________________.
3. If you ask me, _________ makes this season merry and bright.
4. _________ brings back memories.
My answers:
1. Everything stresses me out this time of year. Mainly too many people out shopping when I am.
2. My favorite holiday film is The Family Man-also one of my favorite Nicolas Cage movies.
3. If you ask me, seeing cats dressed up makes this season merry and bright.
4. Oplatki brings back memories. It is a Polish tradition on Christmas Eve to break this wafer with everyone present and wish 3 things for them like health, wealth and happiness. I have fond memories of breaking it with many great aunts and uncles that are now departed.
We are also joining Create With Joy’s Friendship Friday and Feline Friday currently hosted by Comedy Plus.

Here are more flashbacks of Letters to Santa.

Goodbye My Sweet KaTwo

KaTwo left us quite suddenly last night.

( Thank you Pipo’s Mom for this image)

I knew her time was limited after being diagnosed with mammary cancer 15 months ago, but other than the small lumps she had no symptoms and was very active. I think it was a blood clot, not sure if it was from her thyroid related heart murmur or from the cancer. She is the one cat I was unable to give aspirin to, I could barely get her liquid thyroid meds into her.I am thankful we were with her. My heart is so broken , this is the third loss this year. I only had her for 7 and a half years, but I am thankful for that time. She had been in the Secaucus, NJ Animal Shelter for 2 years before we adopted her.

She loved to be right next to me on the couch and that is where she was when she left this world.

And thank you to Teddy’s mom for this beautiful angel image.

Fill-Ins are canceled this week. I will be back blogging Saturday or Sunday. Wishing all the US readers a Happy Thanksgiving.

 

 

Taking a Break

I am going to take a break from blogging to spend every moment with Noel. I fear the end is near and we are going to have to make that awful decision this week. She is just fur and bones. I can see she is getting weaker  by the day so I plan to spend all my time with her until the end.

This photo was taken on September 1st and she has rapidly declined since. I am hoping she will rally for a while, but I am also realistic.

 

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! Before we get started, we want to give our condolences to Wag”nWoof Pets on their loss of beautiful Samantha.

And to The Cat Corner on the loss of their handsome boy, Sammy.

We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful that Penny and Sammy’s blood work was good. Sammy will have his dental next Thursday and also get that bump on his nose checked. Penny has great teeth for a 10 year old and no dental is needed.

Here is my poem today for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this photo:

If only this tree could talk,
it was alive before Bach.
I bet it has seen couples stealing kisses
then returning as Mr. and Mrs.
Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and our co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.

1. 13 years ago, I __________________.
 
2. By this time next year, I hope to ________________________.
 
3. One word that describes me is _________.
4. If my life were a book or movie, it would be in the _________ genre.
One more thing-any guesses as to what this is? And no, our logs do not have the measles.

 

 

Goodbye My Sweet Tallulah

  We had to help our sweet Tallulah to the Rainbow Bridge today. Before Christmas, she was peeing out of the box. Tests showed an infection and the start of kidney disease. She had 2 weeks of antibiotics and then an antibiotic shot. She was down to 4 pounds despite her thyroid being in normal range ( on meds). She had  gained a little weight when checked at 2 other visits. The xray showed nothing and the ultrasound yesterday showed nothing. I knew when I was told she lost a pound in 9 days  that it was time and the vet agreed. I asked for one more day. My husband and I both gave her all our attention yesterday. She watched cat videos on my laptop, chased the laser, ate treats and whipped cream. We had a day that I will never forget.

Tallulah showed up in 2006, I thought Jinx had escaped because they looked similar. She was always sweet to us. She was especially close to Noel and Polar Bear. I brought her to say goodbye to them and they each gave her a head bump, they knew.

I won’t be posting for a few days. My Friendly Fill-In co-host will still be running the hop tomorrow so you can check Four-Legged Furballs for the fill-ins.
