Meow Like A Pirate Day

Arrr, it be Meow like a Pirate day!



It be time to raise the Jolly Mittens!



Sisters Glitter and Cashmere didn't take the day so literally.. They wanted to be Pirate Killers! Mercat Sirens who draw the pirate ships to crash on the rocks. Don't look into their eyes too long or you'll be scuttled as well!



Captain Leo the pirate king knows better than to mess with sisters, or fish! (that's probably only funny if you know he can't eat fish..) So you might find him on some dark dreary island trying to hide his booty!





Please indulge me if I share my two favorite Pirate day pictures of Star from years past.

Some scallywag is in trouble as Pirate Queen Star draws her saber!


 The Queen's work may never be done, but she's earned a catnap with her treasures!



Arr, we hope you all enjoy a mug of grog and have a great pirate day!

Sharing and Opt to Adopt Blog Hop

Going to try to make a post while I have internet! Fingers crossed that I can finish before it goes out again!

Thank you all for your kindness on the loss of my Star. Your words help a lot.


My nephew's girlfriend, the sweetheart who helps me out when I have projects and sewing to do, has been going to my house during the day several times a week to pet and love on my lonely kitties and to help out taking care of litter and such. She took a picture that just floored me and I want to share it with you all.

 
 
I believe that's Leo on the left and Glitter on the right. Sharing the shelf! At the SAME TIME! As far as I know, this is a first! I've never seen more than one kitty sleeping or lounging up there at a time. I've seen kitties look to go up, see that it's already occupied and then leave.

As you can see, there's plenty of room for two kitties, so it's about time, isn't it, for sharing space! I can't wait to get home and see this for myself!

Dogs N Pawz

It's opt to adopt blog hop time again. This time I'm sharing a fairly new Winnie's Wisher who needs a special home.

 
 
Silver loves attention and people, all people. But he's not so good with other kitties. He could really use a home where he's an only kitty. Or perhaps one where there's an alpha kitty who will keep him in line? Mostly he wants a home where he can be pet and loved, do you know of a place like that?

You can learn more about Silver HERE.

If you know of a great home for him, please contact Chrystal at Daily Dose!

Thankfulness

I cannot begin to express how touched we all are with the concern and caring you all have poured out on us at the loss of our sweet little Star. We miss her terribly.

It has been especially rough since Greg and I are apart while I'm in here (an hour from home) trying to get my legs to work right again and Greg is home by himself. The comforting words and prayers from you all are helping us tremendously.

I would love to visit each and every one of you to thank you but the interenet connection here is hit or miss and spotty at best. Please know that even if you do not see me comment on your blog, that we are very grateful for everything.

I want to make sure to say a special thanks to Ann of Zoolatry for the wonderful memorial banner she made of Star. I love it.


Star rarely sat on this cat tree, but I think this is the most adorable pose with her little paws over the edge and everything. Ann, thank you for making my tiny girl look like an adorable angel. Trademark fiesty eyes and all.

I don't want to focus on the sad, I want to think on the good.

Star was 15 years old, I had her for 13 of those years and I like to think that we gave her wonderful years to make up for her not so great beginning. She was a very healthy kitty all of her life, for which I'm grateful. This kidney failure was so sudden and unexpected, such a shock. It is good for Star that she didnt have a long drawn illness to suffer through. She was really only visibly sinking in the last day and a half. That's why Greg took her to the emergency vet instead of waiting for the appointment.

What was shockingly fast for us was blessedly short for Star. What comforts me is knowing that Greg was with her and that she was not suffering long. Your comments, wonderful friends, have helped to aleviate my guilt at not being home to say goodbye. You are right, she knew she was loved, knew that I loved her, no matter where she was.

Leo, Glitter and Cashmere know something is different according to Greg, but they are romping together and playing. I'm sorry to say that it will probably be easier on the three of them without Princess Hissyface grumbling at them. I have been sent pictures of them and will try to share them if my internet holds up, fingers crossed.


I've been trying to post this for three days now, so there's a hint on how I'm fighting the internet here..
I've been trying to visit more as well, but when I try to comment most of the time all I get is a big whilte box where the comment box is supposed to be. Please know that I'm trying and that I love you all. Thank you for everything!

Goodbye Star




With a heavy heart I have to report that Star has left us. She had been losing weight though she ate with gusto until last night. Early this morning she went to the emergency vet and they found her to be in kidney failure with no hope of recovery. She wouldn't even respond to Greg petting her and she loved her daddy dearly.

My biggest regret, aside from losing her at all, is that I was not home for her in her final days. Greg was with her though, and I am very grateful for that. We are both terribly upset about this sudden departure. We knew she was getting up there in age, but were no where near ready for this.

It's Ham-mock Time

Glitter has discovered the joys of the ham-mock.

Someone told me that this belongs to Leo.
 
 

He can have it back after my nap.



Something tells me that she'll be a better sharer than Star, no?

HAPPY BIRTHDAY LEO AND GLITTER AND CASHMERE!!

Today is our big day!

Birthday times three!

Leo has celebrated his birthday all by himself for three years, but now, as he's turning the big FOUR, he has not just one, but two of his sisters living with him celebrating their fourth birthday all together! Yay!!!

We couldn't be happier that these three littermates have been reunited just in time for this big day! So we're going to celebrate in style!

First off, Ann of Zoolatry made us a wonderful banner!



Next, baby pictures!

 
Leo, the only boy, is on the far right. Cashmere is on the far left and Glitter is right in the middle!
(Tuxie/Trixie and Spritz fill out the group, Mitts was down below)
Are they not the cutest kittens ever?? Even still feral and afraid they were too cute!
 
 
 Here's the kitty age chart. Wow, I can't believe they're not kittens any more!




Time to party! Come enjoy the drink of your choice!




Dive into some yummy foods!




Join us for cake..


 
and nip ice cream!



Of course you know our heart is with the rest of the Winnie's Wish kitties and our biggest birthday wish is that there would be lots of adoptions! If you need some furry love in your life, please consider adopting from Winnie's Wish, and be sure to tell all of your friends what great kitties they are!
If you can't adopt, consider making a donation to Winnie's Wish, they are over full and expenses are rising. There's also their Wish List on amazon, the link is on their side bar. And if you don't have Chrystal's book yet, it makes a great gift to yourself, and the profits go to the kitties!

We're so glad you came to our party! It helps keep out minds off the fact that mommy is having to miss it and we don't wanna be sad about that today, so please, lift a glass and toast a Happy Birthday to Leo, Glitter and Cashmere!!

Thank you! We love you all!!!

A Message From Star

Hello kitties and peoples, Star here, taking the blog today.



We are not happy campers around here lately. I'm sure you've noticed that our mom has not posted? Well, it's worse than that! She's not even here! Where are my tummy rubs? Where are my special treats? Where is the warm laptop for me to nap on while she's trying to work? It's not right, I'm telling you!

Everyone else can tell you their gripes whenever they want, but these are my gripes! With mom gone and daddy working all day, when he gets home, everycat runs to him for attention! That's MY dad! So mom being gone has inconvenienced me in many ways!

Where is she? Who cares!  Ok, fine. Mom did some kind of damage to her knee(s) and/or legs and they won't let her come home until she can walk again. And none of them will give us so much as a guess as to how long that will be! We're a bunch of frustrated kitties and humans around here lately, let me tell you!

The other three kitties, Leo and the introoders.. Ok, Glitter and Cashmere.. are having a big day tomorrow. IF mom can get an internet connection to stick long enough to post they will anyway. What do I care about that though? It has nothing to do with me! Hrrmph! But maybe you could check back tomorrow and see if she was able to post the "big day" (bleh) anyway?

I'll be back when I can, friends!
