Daddy Has the Sickies

Greg was home sick for four days! (he rarely takes even one day off for sickness, so you know it was not good!) But he had some great furry nurses!

Nurse Cashmere took most of the shifts, making sure the patient stayed pressed down in the recliner and all warm for naps. (Please note that there is another furry nurse on standby, resting up for their turn)
Cashmere: That's right, keep your fingers warm and limber by keeping them in my soft furs. Don't be afraid to scritch, even if you're sick, you still need a little exercise.
 

Nurse Leo took over the moment Cashmere got up. Apparently keeping daddy pinned to the chair was top priority!
Leo: Thought you were going to get up, huh? Fat chance! I need to lay on this most snuggly blanket.. I mean, I need to keep you warm so you can get better. By the way, sickies don't mean you get out of distributing our snacks you know..

Dear friends, I wanted to give you some kind of explanation on why I haven't been blogging or commenting lately, but I also don't want to look like I looking for sympathy or using this as blog fodder. We have had a horrendous senseless tragedy strike our family and I just have not up to putting fun lighthearted words in the mouths of my kitties. On top of everything, Greg has been very sick and home alone except for the kitties. The pictures were too cute not to share; kitties are wonderful things when you need comfort. I wish I were home with them all too getting my own comfort and snuggles! (I know whining about not being home is getting old, it's grating on my nerves as well, sorry!)
I will do my best to get back into the swing of things, but don't be surprised if we're hit and miss for a while yet. But know that I'm trying. I would really like things to be normal again.
Love you all!

You don't have to make excuses for not blogging - that is terrible that your family has something awful to contend with, so no wonder you haven't been up to it. We know you will be back.

Andrea, Katie and I will wait forever to hear from you. We don't care as long as we do. And tell Leo that the leftovers are here and ready to be nommed. Come on over Leo. Girls, you can too of course when you want. I know! I'll put the containers in the tunnel and set them for your place. But Leo, you can come over to snuggle in the girl cave.

We send our purrs for both mom and dad. We're sure you kitties will do your best to help them heal.

Mom bean says she knows life can be difficult. The other day she heard a song that had these words: "Tough times don't last, tough people do". Hang in there and know there are friends out in the blogosphere who want only the best for you.
