Caturday Art

This week I decided to use Leo's mancat Monday picture, even though it's a weirdly lit, dark, funky picture. A lot of the artsie things didn't work on it in lunapic but I found a few that look ok.


The first one here is Scribble, I think it came out the best.


Fairy


Picasso, didn't realize how similar it was to Fairy until I put both next to each other in this post..

HAD to do Groovy Rainbow again since I loved it last week! Weird but cool

Belated Gotcha Day for the Girls

Things have been very busy around here and I'm sure you can understand. What with just getting home from 7 weeks in the hospital and rehab, then all kinds of doctors appointments and getting set up with some home care, temporary nursing (wounds, ouchie), and physical and occupational therapy (still fussing with getting that together), and in all that mess, I totally missed the girls Gotcha Day.
On May 26 the girls had their 5th gotcha day! Five years! I can't believe it's been that long! Love every day with them! And I'm most grateful to Chrystal for letting me adopt them and bring them home here to live with their brother!

I haven't had time to make a post, all the aforementioned stuff.. so I'm going to copy and post last year's gotcha day post here! Just remember, when it says four years, it's been five now! And the bottom plea stands as much today as it did then!

~~~~~~~~~~~


Double Gotcha Day!
Four years ago we took the eight hour trip back to Illinois to get two of Leo's sisters! It was worth the trip to get Leo, and it was doubly worth it to get Glitter and Cashmere!


First I gotta show baby pictures! Cashmere is on the far left, Glitter in the center and that's Leo on the far right (Spritz is between Cashmere and Glitter, Tuxie/Trixie is between Glitter and Leo, they are watching the 6th sibling, Mitts, play on the floor)


Here's Leo in the back corner (over Spritz) Glitter in front and Cashmere behind Glitters ear! My goodness were they scardy kittens!

We had Leo for three years when we went back for Glitter and Cashmere. They'd been adopted out and returned in bad shape. I decided they were not going to go through that again or be separated since they were so bonded, that we got down there as soon as Greg could get the time off! I have never regretted that for an instant! They are the sweetest, most loving little darlings ever!

Leo had ridden home so well, mostly on my shoulder, that I thought the girls would too. That was NOT the case. Glitter was car sick most of the way and Cashmere was scared and confused and her sister was freaking her out. I sat next to the cage so I could pet them through the bars. Worked with Cashmere anyway, Glitter stayed too far away and just didn't want to be bothered. I'm so glad I had those moments petting Cashmere when she couldn't get away because she hid a lot when she first got here. She liked the pets, and I think she felt safe that I couldn't pick her up since she was behind bars, so to speak.

Thankfully it didn't take that long for them to settle in. They hardly needed or wanted the safe room/home base more than a few days and were not bothered by either Star's hissing of Leo's curiosity. This picture is from early June and they were already out for snack time and a post snack play session!
 
I'm so thankful for the girls. I thought I was giving them a good home and saving them, but they are what makes a good home (along with Leo!) and they save me every day! I adore them and I'm so grateful to Chrystal for letting me have three Winnie's Wishers to love and cuddle!
 
 
I have been asking you all, that if you could, please take the opportunity of Chrystal's vacation and Birthday to send something, either a donation or wish list item, to Winnie's Wish! You see what wonderful kitties come from there! And if you know Chrystal, or read her blog, you know how wonderful she is! So if you can, please send along some love and help the kitties of Winnie's Wish! (and help find them homes too, that would be so awesome!!) I elaborated more about donating on THIS post
 
Thank you all!
 
And happy Gotcha day to my sweet girls, I'm so glad I got to gotcha them!!

Mancat Monday

The Manly Mancat form in silhouette. I think he's a work of art. But I could be a little biased.. Love my baby boy!

Leo: I'm perfecting the art of knowing when to pounce a sister and when to just keep napping.

Caturday Art

We're participating in the Caturday Art blog hop this week! I chose the picture of Leo from our Thankful Thursday post.

Oh, and a follow up on that. Leo said we were waiting on test results to confirm all the good news, well we got them and they did! Even more, the kidney damage that happened in the hospital has healed! We are all kinds of happy and thankful over here!

Here's our happy art!


This one is called Abstract


Dreaming


Scribble


This is Groovy Rainbow gif, and I love it! just wish I could adjust the speed slower..


And the original

Happy Caturday everyone!

~~~~~~

I'm going to put my plea out here one more time! Winnie's Wish could really use some love in the form of donations or wish list items! I was hoping to make a happy birthday for Chrystal and to make up, a little, for her having to miss her Florida vacation because of her being sick and having to be in the hospital with a whole bunch of boxes or donations to the kitties!

If you can, please do use the Wish List that you can find HERE or on the daily dose side bar. Or the donate button that is also on her side bar.
And again, if you would prefer to send wish list items but don't have amazon prime, you can use the big red donate button on my sidebar and I will convert it into wish list items for you and include a note saying who it's from!
Please do what you can from where you are to help Winnie's Wish! Thank you!!

Thankful Thursday With Leo



Leo here, taking over the blog duty today. Because *I* have the bestest, most happiest of thankful thingies! MY mommy is home!! She's HOME!!!! Seven paw wringing weeks she's gone and finally she's HOME!! YAY!!!!
Of course I had to let her know that this was not acceptable and refused to even look at her for a couple of hours even though suck-up-Glitter let her pet her the minute she came in the door. And even after I let her pet me, I still slept with daddy for the first half of her first night home. Now she knows, right? Don't abandon the Leo!
She's been home a few days now and while she says she's settling in and trying to get back to her routine, I think she's just been lazy about updating everyone and blogging. That's why I took over today.
Mommy saw her doctor today and the shake out of everything she went through was.. she doesn't have any of the big scary stuff they said/thought she had. You know how it is, right? Every specialist in a hospital thinks you have something in HIS specialty. Ear nose throat said she had acid reflux, she doesn't. Heart guy said she had congestive heart failure, nope, not that either. Internal med guy said diabetes, wrong again. Pulmonary said COPD, nopity nope nope. Everything that was wrong with her, even down to the voice change, was a problem with her oxygen and CO2 levels. And that's it! She got taken off of so many medicines today that instead of saying don't take this and don't take that, he told her only take these two. And one of those is an over the counter supplement!
Now, of course all of this excitement the peeps are having over this is dependent on the results of today's blood work, but it all looks good so far, so yay!
Me and the sissies, we is so happy she's home that we've been making sure she is not fur free for even a minute! We all have a huge thankful!

Dear friends, we are imploring you again on behalf of Winnie's Wish! We have not been able to fundraise for them in AGES! no auctions. no toy or bed fundraisers. So we are asking you, for Chrystal's birthday, to make up for the fact that Miss Chrystal was unable to get to her one and only Florida palm tree vacation, just because you love kitties, (and maybe as a yay for my mommy being home and well?) to please consider sending a donation or some wish list items! They really need help with the kitties, litter and food especially.
If you want to send wish list items but don't have Amazon prime, you can use my red donate button and I will convert your donation to wish list items and send them in your name.
Any little bit helps!
Please Consider Adopting!
You can find Chrystal's donate button on the side bar of the Winnie's Wish blog/Daily dose of dogs AKA Cats with your coffee.
You can find her Wish List HERE or also on her sidebar.
And again, my donate button is a big red one on my side bar.
 
Please do share, lets make sure lots of packages and donations find their way to the kitties!!
 
Thank you!!!!

Fabulous Friday

It's a great Friday because of many things! The window is open! Glitter got her turn in it! There are boxes! And rumor has it something wonderful is happening later today!

Glitter: Um, dad, you need to move something so I have a better view please.. although the squirrel does like to sit on the trash cans, hmm, so it's a toss up.


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

Friends, please don't forget about Chrystal and Winnie's Wish. Chrystal is unable to get her one and only vacation in Florida amongst her beloved palm trees, AND her birthday is coming up quickly. So I'm hoping we can get lots of Wish List packages to arrive at her house and some donations too! Let's make May a happy month, palm trees or not! Thank you!!!

PS. you'll find her donate button on the sidebar of her blog. And here's the Amazon wish list link.

ManCat Making Do Moday

Poor Leo. He misses his mommy. His mommy misses him! Mommy promised she'd be home by now, but apparently she's a liar because she's not home now. Soon, hopefully, but mommy refuses to put a date on it any more just in case it's the universe laughing at her.

Leo: If I cover my eyes, maybe I can pretend this is mommy...

If you saw my last post, you know that I'm trying to make this a good month for Chrystal of Winnie's Wish (Daily Dog AKA Cats with your Coffee). She's been sick, spent time in the hospital, and can't get to her Florida Vacation this year because of that. Not to mention her BIRTHDAY is at the end of this month too!
How do we make this a good month? Simple!
 
Donations! (see her sidebar for the link!)        
 
Wish list items! (click this link or see the banner on her sidebar)
 
Anything you can do would be greatly appreciated! Lets see if we can send tons of packages and donations by the end of the month, lets overwhelm her so she doesn't have to worry about shopping for litter and catfood for a whole 'nother month! Let's all do what we can from where we are to help the kitties of Winnie's Wish and make Chrystal smile and feel good!
 
Thank you!!
