Piper's Mommy

Piper's mommy, my mom, has been in the hospital all week. She's being kept sedated because she's on a vent. She has horrible pneumonia and something going on with or near her gallbladder. Obviously we have been very worried and at the hospital and out of touch on line for the most part.
They are going to start trying to wean her off of the vent tomorrow. But if it takes more than three days, they are going to talk tracheotomy.
We are worried, we are scared. We love our mommy, Piper, my sister and me.
I guess I'm saying, this is why I'm not posting. But I think you all understand that.
If you pray, please pray for her. Thank you

Piper is being taken care of and may move in with my sister for a while because it's likely mom will go to a step down facility to regain strength before going home. My sister is the only house with no other cats. She has a blind old Yorkie, but Nala won't 'see' the Piper and Piper will be able to easily avoid Nala. Send prayers for this situation too please!

Piper: I don't like missing my mommy. But will someone please tell me what a 'Yorkie' is and why it makes me nervous? Ok, so everything makes me nervous, I still want to know if a 'Yorkie' is a person from New York, or something to eat, or a fluff comforter to lay on!

Caturday Art with Glitter

For today's Caturday Art I picked one of Glitter's pretty sitting pictures from this week. She was so cute, I thought I could art it up a bit and make her even cuter!

First up, Beauty


Flame. Now, lunapic had two flames, I think. This one was under art, not special effects.



And here's the original

Pretty Sitter Glitter

Glitzy Glitter the Pretty Sitter has RBF... How is it that this sweetheart, this cuddly, friendly, darling girlcat can have such a nasty look on her face in pictures yet when you see her in person, you don't notice that? I never see the RBF until I look at the pictures I take of her.

RBF, for those of you who don't know, is Resting Bitch Face.

In other words, she looks mean in pictures.

Take this adorable photo series, for example. She was being so adorable! I had to snap picture after picture, but then I noticed the look on her face. Sigh. It does not convey what a living doll she is, honestly.

Glitter: Hi hi, I'm thinking that it's probably getting on toward snack time, right? What's that? My face? No.. I'm not mad, I'm happily thinking about snackage!

*muttering to self* What is it with people thinking I'm in a bad mood all the time... why I oughta cut someone...

What's that? Hello! That was a joke! Sheesh Here's an innocent look, does this one work for you? Still waiting on that snack, by the way..

What do you mean 'look at you'? I am looking at you. Here's some eye contact! Feel better now? Snack time better?

Goodness, I'm tired of this. Give you the "Ain't I so cute" pose on the arm of the chair and all I get are questions about my expression.. humans..

No, mom, I'm don't looking at you and that flashy box. I already quit the pose and I'm about to quit waiting on a snack from you and go bug daddy. He's easy to manipulate.

Ok ok! Here, I'm looking at you! Happy? Good, cause I am too. Now, where did we end on the snackage subject??

I sympathize, Glitter, I often get told I have RBF too. (Yes, she got her snack)

By the way, it's not because of flash that she makes that face. These were all taken on my cell phone (as if you can't tell by the *quality* of the pictures) and it doesn't have a flash.

My camera was broken and all I have been able to take for quite a while has been cell phone pictures. It was dropped once too many times and the batteries were rattling around in the battery compartment; obviously, I presumed, something broke off in there. I looked and could not see a way to fix it. I have been planning on getting a new one and when I mentioned that tonight, Greg picked up the camera to check it out. (Not like I haven't tried to get him to do that for months or anything..) he took the batteries out, dropped them back in and sproing! the little tab that the batteries sit on unstuck itself and went back to working like it's supposed to... Now *I* have dropped the batteries in and out of it several times! Did it fix itself for me? Of course not! Needed Greg's magic touch! Grrrr Anyway, since I'm putting this on the Thankful Thursday blog hop, I can add that I'm very thankful that I'll be able to use my camera again!! I'm also thankful for Glitzy Glitter, our Pretty Sitter, RBF and all!

Cashmere Gives Her Opinion

Cashmere: Dear friends, we are still here. We three kitties are doing our best to force the momma to post for us, to comment for us, and basically do anything other than cough and snuffle. Seriously, it's not fun sitting on her when she does that stuff. Although her medicine stuff makes her sleep quietly for long times and we do like that. We've been giving her all the warmths we can and snuggles, so long as she doesn't 'cough us off". She blames the weather going all up and down so whoever's in charge of that, would you please quit playing with the control buttons? Thank you! Smooches and head bumps to all of you!
