The Most Awesomest Thing EVER!

 
Stat is taking over today's post.



Kitties, woofies, and all other gentle readers!

You won't believe the weekend we've had. It's been a long weekend, starting early and still going on. You see, we call it a weekend when Daddy's home. And he's been home with us since Thursday.

You may wonder why, and I suppose I should care.. blah blah blah, stay home, take mommy to the hospital, whatever yadda yadda yadda. That's not the important stuff.

What? You want to know anyway? Fine, long story short, mom either has cracked ribs or strained muscles between the ribs, x-rays couldn't tell for sure but since she heard a POP when she twisted and she was breathing weird, they figure it has to be one of those two. She's drugged up, so lets get on with the good stuff!

Friends, I have discovered the joys of The Heating Pad! Seriously! If you've never seen one, get your human injured and try it out! All I know is I walked up to sit on mom's chest and my feet touched heavenly warmth! I tried to see what it was by sharpening my claws on it, but I was stopped, the nerve... But what was the best, the bees knees, the most awesomest thing EVER was laying on it!

I'm telling you, it was wonderful, warm and toasty! I stretched out and curled up and rolled over and napped on this thing so much that it's going to turn gray with my furs! I could live on this thing!

What I really want to know is why has she been hiding this thing from me until now? And how do I get to keep it after she is better? I'm telling you, I am willing to bite her to get Heating Pad time if I have to!

What did the barbarian think of it? Heh heh heh.. Oh that was priceless! He walked up mom as usual and suddenly realized something was different. His ears went back and he started picking his feet up like he was high stepping while looking around trying to figure it out! He didn't stay long enough to get all four feet on it; the big chicken ran for his tree and looked back at mom like she was a stranger! MOL!

That was fine by me, more Heating Pad time for me! I was taking full advantage of it too, until the big goof got over his fear and decided to sort of nap on it, but mostly he tried to nudge it aside so he could nap on mom without the heat, what a flake!

Mom says it's easier on her ribs when it's me anyway. Because I'm so light and I spread out, she hardly feels the weight on her owies. Leo tends to stomp/dance before he lays down and that causes mom to make all kinds of unpleasant sounds.

I say he can have her feet, The Heating Pad is all mine! Right?


If you're lucky, Leo will tell the story of the surprise visitor we had on tomorrow's post!

I wish we had a heating pad! But the last time my human needed something it was a cold pad and who wants to cuddle up with that!

Seriously, I hope your human feels better soon!

Fuzzy Tales said...

Your poor mom! We're sending her healing purrs for a speedy recovery.

We discovered an old heating pad that our human had been hiding on us but we bet yours is much better! Your mom can get one for herself--that one obviously is yours now!

Thanks for stopping by re: Nicki. He's eating normally at this time and seems perkier, though still is super-sneezy.

We hope your Mom feels better soon!

Star, you're right about the heating pad. It makes very rare appearances here, but we shove each other off of it to stretch out on its warm goodness when it is around.

Fur Everywhere said...

We are sorry about your mommy, but the heating pad sounds very nice! Jewel used to sleep on the Mom's electric blanket, and she really loved it a lot! Maybe your human can get you one, too :)

The Island Cats said...

You wanna know something? We don't care about the heating pad. The mom put one out for us, and we ignored it. Strange, huh?

We hope your mom feels better soon.

we hope your mom is feeling better soon. we have heard rumor of this heating pad thing but have never gotten our paws on one (though mom was cracked up by the image of Leo)

Brian said...

Ouch! We are all sending healing purrs to your Mom. That heating pad sounds like a wonderful idea!

Caren Gittleman said...

Oh nooooooooooo!! Your poor Mom! OMC she must be in incredible pain! Hoping she feels better soon!

Eastside Cats said...

It's hard to breathe with hurt ribs; hope the doc's find relief for you soon. Angel loves her heated bed, but Chuck ignores it. Neither seem to want to hang out on my heated mattress bad either, so go figure. The ferals have a heated pad, which Sammy has used non-stop since Novem-brrrr!

LP said...

Hope your Mama feels bester really quickly! That sounds painful! :(

We had a heating pad for angel Tulip when she was alive and she loved it but Leo doesn't seem to like it at all. Maybe the rest of us should check it out...

the critters in the cottage do

Colehaus Cats said...

Hmm, we thought our mom was the heating pad. We may have to rethink that.... Thanks for your tip!

"Oh, mom.....!"

Rene said...

We are sorry about the heating pad for your mom. . .but we know the glories of it for kitties!

Maxwell, Faraday and Allie said...

MOWZERS! Maybe we should put out a leg & make our mommy trip or something so WE can try one of those out!!

Purring that your mom is better soon!!!

Kitties Blue said...

Wow Star, We really hope you mom is going to be okay. Did you know that some humans actually buy heating pads for the kitties? Our mom has one and will share if she's using it, but we don't have our own. We think, however, that you should request one of your very own a soon as your mom is well enough to go shopping for you. Until then stay warm snuggled up with her. Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Hilary said...

oh no… sending lots of love and purrs

Flynn said...

Your poor mum, I hope she soon feels a lot better. My mum has got a heat pad she puts in the bed to warm it if it is very cold. I don't much care for it but Eric used to love it and wouldn't let mum have it back.

Katie Isabella said...

Sweethearts, love on your mommy and tell her she needs to get better soon as possible. Leo..you too. Tell mommy I have a few fuzzy pics of me with my gifts and I will do as you asked and show them. xoxoxo

Meg & Quill said...

How nice of your mom to be injured just so you could enjoy the pad. Purrs she feels better and just lays it on the bed for your enjoyment...

Marty the Manx said...

Hope your mom is feeling better. So excited fur you on the heating pad! maybe mom will buy us one! Glad you don't have to share it either!

Eileen said...

Oh, poor mom! We hopes she is feeling better soon.

She should leave the heaty pad out for you though...it sounds like a great way to keep your brofur away from you. What a scaredy cat, MOL!

Sasha, Sami, & Saku

BeadedTail said...

Heating pad? Oooo, that sounds nice! We hope your mom feels better soon!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Hey Star! Guess what???? I have heard legends about kitty HEATY CUP BEDS--they are round beddies for kitties AND THEY HAVE BUILT-IN HEATING PADS! Can you believe THAT??? It doesn't get so cold here, but you totally need one of those beddies, my darling! Oh, and I hope your Human gets to feeling better too! XOXOXOXO

The Heating Pad sounds wunnerful. Weve heard of them from other kitties too, but have never esperienced one. So we asked TBT iffen there was one HERE. He went all kinna vague and we know what THAT means - there IS but he doesnt wanna find it and pull it out.

Hope your Mom feels better soon. Boy, that heating pad sounds the best thing ever!
