Leo's Scared Sunday Selfie

 
Leo: Friends, I is hidin' my face 'cause I had a scare! We all did!! Last Tuesday, while ridin' high over our post with the Auction Results, mommy got a call from daddy, and he was in the back of an ambulance! Mommy freaked. Out! We all ran from her, lemme tell ya, freaked us out too! Daddy got hit on the highway and his bus/van got flipped over! He got thrown down the other side when it flipped and landed on his face, ya'll, his face! 
You shoulda seen how we looked at him when he got home from the people vet building! Cashmere just jumped up on the arm of his chair as usual and stopped in her tracks and stared and stared and stared at his face! Kitties, people's got no fur to cover the multiple colors they can turn, it's freaky. 
He's got both of his feets wrapped up too, so he ain't walkin' right at all. Daddy said one is a cast and one is a boot, but the cast is on the bad sprain and the boot is on the broken one, does that sound right to you? Us either.. 
Momma says daddy needs surgery on his footsie, but daddy said maybe, and they don't stop going back and forth on it. Daddy has to see a second people bone vet for a second opinion so mommy stops harpin'.. I mean talkin' about it..  
One good thing, we gots him trapped now! He can't get away from us so we gets ta nap on him alllllll the time! We have to hold him down so he can heal and recover, right? That's what good kitty nurses do, so me and the girls, we's takin' this job very seriously! 
Another good thing is that Twin 1 and Twin 2 and their mommy (my mommy's sister) are coming over all the time and helpin' us all out. More people for pettin' time! 
So that's our scary end of year story, we sure hopes this new year is much better!!! Our folk's is tired of bein' hurt and not feelin' good! Anyone who wants ta send power o' the paw, purrs or prayers sure is appreciated by our daddy! And mommy too, maybe she'll feel your good will and stop freakin' out so much! 
 
Oh, and Happy New Year to ya all!!!! Purrs everyone!

Caturday Art

 I went back a bit to find this picture of Cashmere from the 7th, her happy sleeper picture, for this weeks Caturday art. I used lunapic and wanted to do an all Christmas theme again, but the way this picture is, that didn't work. Her face isn't centered so it was using her fluff as the focus of some of the things and I gave up and went to a few non Christmas favorites. But lets start with the Christmas ones that did work!
 
 
Christmas Needlework

 
Christmas Lights

 
 
Christmas clipart

 
 
Scribble
 
 
 
Floating


And the original

I want to thank everyone for their kind words on Pipers passing. She will be missed.

Piper

 If you're a long time reader, you may recall that I got my mother a cat for mother's day in 2017. Piper was a very chubby sweetheart that soon became my mom's best buddy. 
 
When we lost my mom in 2019 Piper went to live with my sister. Actually, she moved in with her while my mother was in the hospital and rehab. Piper missed my mom but came to love my sister and her husband too. 
 
My sister and her husband moved into my mom's old house and Piper was back in her home, and happy, and loved. 
 
Yesterday, suddenly, Piper passed away in my sisters arms. 
 
Earlier this week Piper was at the vets, they couldn't find anything seriously wrong with her except that she seemed anemic. They weren't going to do any extensive testing at the moment, more wait and see because she should be ok. The vet did talk about possibly doing leukemia testing in the future. 
 
I know cats can hide sickness for a long time, but this was a shock. I think we're all in shock. 
 

 I think it's only fitting that her memorial picture has her with her paw on my mother urn. She passed away two years and four days after my mother.
Fly Free Sweet Piper, we'll see you at the rainbow bridge, where you are hopefully in my mom's lap. 


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

The Winnie's Wish Auction has ended, everyone has been emailed. Hopefully we'll have wonderful numbers to share with you all soon. Thank you for your support!
