Hi everyone! Today is a special day in the blogging world. Mimi Lenox started Blog4Peace back in 2006 and it continues to grow. Every year we are asked to create a peace globe from the template offered or one you design yourself. This year’s theme is Climate Change.
I used a photo of Sammy to remind everyone to keep the heat down and put on a sweater instead.

Hi everyone! Poor Penny is being bumped today. I want to pass some important information along to all of you.
I have always read that aspirin is a no-no for cats so I was shocked when Emmy’s cardiologist prescribed one half of a baby aspirin twice a week. She is also on two heart medicines.
Sammy has a murmur so he went to the same cardiologist for an echocardiogram and was also prescribed the same aspirin regimen. Then I went to the regular vet with Polar Bear. I recently changed all the cats over to this new place because I was unhappy with the care at VCA. Well, this new vet ( new to us, she has been in business over 20 years) recommended the aspirin for him too. Polar Bear has a thyroid problem like Sammy and also has a murmur ( all my hyperthyroid cats have murmurs). This vet gives all her hyperthyroid cats a whole baby aspirin twice a week. I am staying cautious and only doing the half twice a week.
The reason this was prescribed was because hyperthyroid cats with murmurs are more prone to blood clots. I had never heard this before. Has anyone else been told this? I am curious to know. Plus, if you haven’t been told this, I hope you will ask about it if your cat has these conditions. I also plan to ask if all my older cats should be given this like how aspirin is prescribed for older humans.
This is one of the gifts I gave my mom for her birthday. It is a travel mug from Summer’s Zazzle store. My mom is a big fan of Summer.
My librarian is a fellow cat lover so she always sets aside cat books for me. She recently set aside two books for me by Georgia Dunn. She draws her own comics based on her three cats.
Breaking Cat News: Cats Reporting on the News that Matters to Cats and
Lupin Leaps In: A Breaking Cat News Adventure
are such cute books. You know how cats are always snoopervising everything we do. Well, these three cats do the same, but report it as news. I can’t believe I had not heard of this comic strip until recently, it was started in 2010. Here is a link to their website. Click here.
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.
