Trying To Be Thankful Thursday


Leo Here, Last time we posted, we were Thankful that mommy was home from the hospital and yeah, daddy came home with her. We had our laps back, our lounging spots, our on time snacks! Everything was lovely and wonderful... for about a day!

That very Thursday mommy had to make appointment all the way back at the surgeons office, three hours away (that's six human hours of driving, hour or so for appointment, and about 2 kablillion kitty hours!) She got something called an Infection, though we didn't see anything new around here. Does it have feathers? Fur? Is it covered in catnip? Then what good is it? I guess mommy thought the same thing because she was not happy with it and got some pills to get rid of it.

Pardon this aside, kitties, but do you know that she took those pills without making a fuss, no scratching, no yowling, no spitting it back out and having to try again with a soggy pill! What kind of way is that to get pilled?? Humans is weird..

Anyway, back to the almost happy part. All the sudden, mommy started scratching her ankles off. She was flipping out like she had fleas! She assured us that she didn't, but said she needed a potato peeler to take care of the problem but daddy wouldn't bring her one. That next Tuesday she had what she called a post surgery appointment back at that surgeons again.. another 2 kabillion hours! But get this! She doesn't come back even after 3 kabillion hours! Not even after four!

And then.... the brother guy came over and gave us our snackies like he did when mommy was in the hospital.. this did not bode well kitties! Not well at all!

Apparently mommy's infection had a reaction to the medication and it wasn't good, so they put her in the hospital again! Without warning! Not nice! Bad surgeon, bad! Five days! 5! Can you believe it! They held her hostage for another 5 days! She said she was pin cushioned again, but not as badly as the first time.

Her infection has caused an infraction in my affection and attention collection! It's just not right to deprive a kitty of his rightful snuggles! Someone needs to pay for my troubles! And the rocks I throw at them will not be pebbles! Now give me my cuddles!

I guess we're thankful that she's home again, and daddy too! And that's a good thing. We are doing our darndest to keep her weighed down to the bed or chair or wherever she lands because we don't want her going out the door ever again!

She brought more pills home with her, and again.. not taking them right at all! I haven't seen her hold even one in her cheek and spit it out later.. At least she's not causing a disruption with any more scratching so I'm declaring her invisible flea free!

So it looks like all is well in our world! We are thankful and happy again!

Although.. I don't like the sounds of the words 'follow up appointment' and 'out of town wedding' that I've been hearing. But I'ma ignore that and maybe it'll go away, right? Right!

Pardon me, Kitties and friends, I gotta get me some more scritches under my chin so I'm gonna end this here! Get your cuddles kitties! You deserve them!!

Thankful Thursday ~ Mommy's Home!


Leo Here: Mommy's home! And boy are we thankful! She was gone for elebenty hundred days! But she's home now!

Cashmere: So's daddy!

Leo: Yeah well, it's the mommy I'm more worried about. She's my best pillow!

Cashmere: Daddy's MY best pillow!

Leo: Well, you keep him held down and I'll keep Mommy held down. Glitter can float between both (but really, not to my mommy, not when I'm sitting on her.. no one takes my mommy time!) and we'll keep them from ever trying to go away again!

Glitter: We all need to work together to take care of them!

Leo: Holding her down IS taking care of her! If I can just shut up the shouts of 'my drains! my stitches! my bruises!' I mean, sheesh, she keeps disturbing me with that caterwauling! If she didn't want me to lay on her stupid ol' drains she shouldn't be covering them up with the big soft pink blankey! Am I right? You know I am.

Cashmere: Daddy doesn't have any of those problems. So I got the better one to take care of!

Glitter: That's because he's not the one who had surgery, silly, mommy is. Daddy just had to do the waiting thing. Sounds boring..

Leo: hey, I'm not done talking here! Now where was I... Oh yeah, the mommy whining. It's a good thing they sent her back to us with them bottles of pills that make her sleep a lot, she's quiet then!

Glitter: Pain pills you mean, they don't make her sleep, she just sleeps when the pain goes down.

Leo: *mutters* know it all sisters.. Anyway! I like the makes her sleep pills, and she's not nearly so hard to medicate as a certain sister who shall remain nameless (but I'd be even worse if it were me) coughCashmerecough! And I try my hardest to distract the daddy man from doing anything that makes her whine by walking back and forth over her, keeping him from touching her. It's not easy being so cute they can't yell at you! And if somesister would do her job of keeping daddy pinned down better..

Cashmere: Hey!

Leo: Then I wouldn't have to work so hard at my job! Maybe you both need to work on daddy and I'll take care of mommy all by myself.. yeah, that sounds about right! Ok, it's settled! I think we have this covered now!  And thank you, friends, for all your comments and purrs and prayers! I know mommy appreciates them all! Time for naps now, we'll try to let mommy comment and visit when she's feeling better, ok?

Glitter and Cashmere: Bro, we need to talk.. with our paws..

Leo: Sorry, already called nap time! ZZZZZZzzzZZZZ

MeARRRRRow, It's Pirate Day!

It's late (ok early AM), I had MORE pre-op testing today (3 hour drive each way), I'm exhausted, not sleeping because of nerves anyway, totally missed our 30th Wedding anniversary (because of the regular pre-op testing last week, also 3 hours each way and about 4 hours of testing/talking/preparing), surgery moved up to this Thursday, more anxiety filled nearly sleepless nights.. But..
I have NEVER (to my sleep addled memory) missed a Pirate day yet and I'm not going to now!

 
There's no way I'm up to making new pirate pictures, so please bear with me and pretend it's throw back Thursday Pirate day! (Way Back Wednesday?)
 

The first Captain Leo I ever made! (I think, remember, sleep addled brain here!)


A better Captain Leo!




And the girls, Glitter and Cashmere, Mercat sirens luring pirates to their deaths!




Wouldn't be right to not include the fierce Pirate Queen, Star, our own special angel.


 
 
 
Arrgh! Yo ho! Drink up, me hearties! Walk the plank! Shiver me timbers! It's the pirates life for me!!
 
 
(Ok, THIS is probably my last blog for a while, surgery and recovery, yup, 3 hours from home! Won't be back until Sunday most likely, but don't worry about the kitties, they have someone here caring for them and the house!)
 
Have a Great Pirate Day!!

WTFriday

WTFriday is the day I like to share what I call "What The Freak?" pictures. This one is not some odd optical illusion like last week. This is a What The Freak is with this cat??

Glitter finds the most unusual and uncomfortable looking places to lay! I don't get this cat! With all the cat beds and furniture, why does she sleep on stinky shoes?? Uncomfortable stinky shoes!


First, daddy's work boots. Why??
Glitter: I don't think I like the tone of your question..



Then my shoes, completely on top of one of them, half on the other.. How can that be comfortable??
Glitter: You wouldn't understand. It's a cat thing..



Then TWO pairs of work shoes!
Glitter: Ok, I admit it. This one takes practice. Don't try it at home, kittens!



And finally.. go ahead, hold your nose, you know you want to... Two pairs of work shoes AND the stinky socks that were inside them!
Glitter: Ok, this is only for the serious shoe sleepers out there, not for the faint of heart.
Cashmere: Seriously, the floor smells better!
Glitter: Some people just don't understand the art form.. Useless to try to explain. Philistines..


I just don't get it.. Do you?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I want to send a HUGE thank you to everyone who helped make the Winnie's Wish Quick Auctions go so well! I'll have the total and the check sent to Chrystal soon! It went even better than I hoped thanks to all of you who shared, posted, and bid! (I'll say this much, looks like you all helped the kitties to the tune of over a grand!) All items are currently winging their way to their winning bidders!

And I have to say, it was a huge blessing that everyone responded so quickly to emails telling them that they won! Everything but the math is done and well ahead of my surgery date! Thank you thank you thank you!

I have not been blogging much since the end because of getting ready to go (surgery is 3 hours from home) and pre-op stuff (who knew that would take an entire day!) Not to mention all the 'not sleeping because now it's real and I'm nervous/anxious/ready to freak out! Considering the surgery is next week, you probably wont see much of us for a while! But please remember, we love you all and appreciate you all and will be back into the swing of things as soon as possible!

Hugs and purrs to everyone!

Sunday Selfie and Final Auction Day

I love this picture of Glitter. Doesn't it look like she knows something you don't? Love her smirk!

Glitter: How had could it be to know something mom doesn't? We kitties know all and tell nothing!


One thing I wish she could tell me is how to stop getting eye glare.. Darn flash!

Caturday Art

I decided to use the picture of the girls sleeping together that I posted on Wordless Wednesday. Greg is always saying he never sees any of the kitties sleeping together, so I had posted those as proof that yes they do! Maybe not cuddled up, but certainly together!

Anyway, here's the original:
 
And  here are my Art-ified ones!

WTFriday

Way back in ...May! I 'thought' I was going to start a new thing, but then, just as I sort of predicted, forgot!

Here's what I wrote on my first WTFriday:

Don't you all have those pictures of your kitties that make you say What The Freak? I sure do! 'Cause kitties is freaky! Mine are anyway. And hey, I've seen a lot of yours so don't go thinking I'm alone in this! ;)

I might try to make WTFriday a thing for a while. If I don't forget.. because, ya know, I'm about as freaky as my kitties at times! hee hee



Yup, forgot! But then, I got this picture! And it's a real What The Freak??

Cashmere: Am I here? Am I gone? You don't know! Neither does mom!


I have no idea what happened. Obviously I must have moved, thus the blur. But.. Cashmere looks like she was there at the start of the picture and was gone before it finished clicking! Half of her is gone! But the eyes, they are bright and clear, so explain that one!

I don't know about you, but I'm freaked out! I mean, you can see the carpet THROUGH her! Yeah, freaky!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Know what should also freak you out? The Winnie's Wish Quick Auction is over in 2 days!!!
Ok, maybe not freak out, but hurry and check out the final items that were added as well as some other goodies that have been passed up!

Toes and Tail Tuesday

Mystery Cat: Toes and Tail Tuesday? Ok, here you go!

Mystery Cat: Good idea, turn out the light, all the better to see the toe hawks! What's that? You're missing parts of me? Well, I thought all you wanted was toes and tail, no? If you guess, I'll reveal!
.
.
.
.
.
Keep guessing..
.
.
.
.
.
Got it? Or give up?
.
.
.
.
.
.
Ok, here I am!

Glitter: That's right! It's me! I must say, it's not very polite to catch me at my bath. Don't worry though, I am not stopping. It takes a lot of work to keep all this fluff looking so good!



Glitter: Hee hee hee, I really kept you all guessing, didn't I? Hope you have a terrific Toes and Tail Tuesday!
 
 
~~~~~~~~~~~

Floofy Friday

Cashmere: The best way to display your floof, my dear kitty friends, is in a place right in the way of the humans. Like in front of hallways!
 
 

Cashmere: If you can get a fluffy sister to spread her tail out to block the rest of the way, all the better! Now, I think I'll take a nap right here. I'm a floofy road block!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A couple more items up on the Winnie's Wish Quick Auctions today! Remember, the entire auction will end on the 10th this month!

Thankful Thursday (And Auction News!)

My kitties are always thankful to be Guinea Pigs! They get to test out all the prototypes of toys I make! Here's a look at the first Fancy Fishy Kicky I made. I didn't like the eyes, not bulgy enough like fancy goldfish eyes.. But my kitties don't seem to mind, they kick this thing to death all the time and it comes back for more!

Cashmere: Do you really think I'm going to continue to kick and basically beat the heck out of this thing now that you have the camera out? Silly human..


Yeah, but look at that sly smile!
She went nuts with it again later. Still had a hard time getting any action shots!

Cashmere: What's that? Play? No I wasn't.. I was just sitting here, minding my own business.. resting my head on this wonderfully nip scented thingie.. You know I'm not going to move again until that flashy box is closed and put away, right?
 
 
 When it was Glitters turn to kick the fishy kicky, I couldn't get a decent shot of her. Heck, I had a hard time getting a shot where her head was in frame! She was biting it when Leo walked by, she turned to make sure he wasn't after HER toy just as I took the shot.. sigh..

Glitter: MINE! That's right.. keep walking..
Leo: Yeah, ok. You'll be napping soon and then I will take it under the bed where no camera can see while I beat that thing up, down, and all around!
Glitter: I can live with that.



Would you like to know what I'm thankful for? First of all for the WONDERFUL response to the Winnie's Wish Quick Auctions!! Nearly every item I posted on day one had bids, on day one!
I've added several more items and I'm still making some! But I have news!

Something else I'm very very thankful for! I have an end date for the Winnie's Wish Quick Auctions! You see, there was a reason I made it a Quick Auction, rather than the 7 days I usually give. I've been waiting (and waiting and waiting and waiting) to get a surgery date and I wanted to be able to close the auction in a timely manner so that I wouldn't have anything left to do when I finally (FINALLY) got that surgery.
And that's what I'm thankful for! I have a date! I'll be going in on September 22, and I'll have pre-op stuff on the 12th. So.. I'm ending the Auction on the 10th! Because my surgery is hours away from home, even the pre-op will take a whole day. I'll have the ten days between to make sure every item is claimed and paid and sent out and hopefully nothing to worry about by the 22nd except.. (hahahaha! did I say nothing to worry about? Me?? A born worrywart? How silly, but at least the end of the auction will get me something else to focus on, right? Oh I hope so...)

So there we are! I'm thankful! The kitties are thankful! And Winnie's Wish and Chrystal are thankful!

~~~~~~~~~

There is still time! Don't forget to stop by the Winnie's Wish Quick Auctions! Yes, the whole thing shuts down on the 10th of September, but up until then, there's still the three day bidding as each item gets it's first bid!

https://winnieswishauction.blogspot.com/

Tuesday night I added a whole bunch of new items, I'm hoping to sell out! :) Wouldn't that be wonderful for Winnie's Wish??!! Remember, every bid helps the kitties of Winnie's Wish!

also, there are some adorable kittens there who want a home very badly! Won't you share and help them? There are also some adult cats looking for their special forever home! Share and help, please!
All of the adoptable kitties are on the sidebar of the Daily Dose blog, click on one, and share their post on whatever social media you use! Tell your friends! Please?

Donations and Wish List items are always needed and appreciated, look for the Wish List also on their sidebar and a donate button!
