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.

 

 

Sunday Selfies

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

Joanie took her selfie when The Great One was here the other day. We had all the costumes and props out on the bed. Somehow the plastic handcuffs ended up not getting put away. My hubby rolled on them during the night and asked me why there were handcuffs in bed. 🙂

#Remember Me Thursday

Hi everyone! I know it is Wordless Wednesday, but last Thursday I missed a most important day. #Remember Me Thursday is a special day to bring attention to cats in shelters waiting for their forever homes. Many cats never leave the shelter.

Our friend Dawn, mom to Lola and Lexy is hosting the hop for #Remember Me Thursday so be sure to visit all the participants.

Joanie and Sammy were only at the shelter for a few months. It breaks my heart that they had another sibling that was adopted separately before I adopted them. They were 4 at the time so I am sure they would have liked to all stay together.

My Angel Snowball and KaTwo also came from a shelter. They were both their for 2 years before being adopted. Someday I hope to rescue another cat that has been in a shelter for years. Every cat ( and dog) deserves a forever home. All my cats have brought me great joy and continue to every day.

Thankful Thursday

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

I am thankful KaTwo is still doing well since her dire diagnosis last September ( knock on wood- 3 times)..

And here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this photo:

Let us survey
how can we torture mom today?
Once she puts on a clean shirt,
your breakfast you can start to spurt.
When she puts us down for a nap,
it will be a fine time for a crap.
And if she talks to anyone on her cell
we must be sure to yell and yell.

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

1. I hope _________________________ never goes out of business.
 
2. So far, the highlight of my year has been__________________.
 


3. _________ takes up too much time.
4. If I didn’t have to sleep, I would spend that extra time _________.
 
One more thing- Today is Sammy’s big day to get some teeth removed and a nose biopsy. All purrs and prayers are appreciated. Thank you.

Sunday Selfies

Hi everyone! I am a day late for Sabi Saturday, but here is my entry. (Sabi Saturday is a hop where you show something old, repurposed or upcycled. I have shown this in the past, but not for Sabi Saturday so here it is again.

This was my mom’s book as a child. I guess it is still technically hers, but I am the keeper of it. Does anyone know what Dolly Madison’s surprise was?

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

We have lots of participants today-
