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!!

Flashback Friday

For Flashback Friday I'm sharing a post from last May called Grass Girls:

We FINALLY have spring like weather around here! The windows are open, the sun is shining and the cat grass is growing!

Boy does that make the kitties happy!

Cashmere: Um, you may not want to watch this..
Glitter: For what I'm about to do, I apologize.
Cashmere: *chompchompsnarflechomp!*
Glitter: *gobblemunchslurpchewchomp* Urp..
Cashmere: They're not watching, are they? I hope they aren't watching..
Glitter: Avert your eyes internets!
Both: *munchmunchchompcrunch*

Well... I think they have that covered. Shall we move on?


At the end of that post I put out a plea/request to send donations and wish list items to Chrystal and Winnie's Wish because May is when she takes her one and only vacation to Florida and her birthday is at the end of that vacation. I thought it would be great to have a bunch of packages waiting for her when she returned home.

I think that would be great again this year. Except for one thing.

She can't go on her one and only vacation to Florida.

If you follow her blog you know that she was quite sick and in the hospital for a while. That's where her 'vacation' went. She's feeling better, but I don't think she's back to 100%...

What do you say we try to give her a boost by sending packages and donations anyway? She has a donate button on her sidebar and a link to her Amazon Wish List there also. Litter and food are a big need, but there are other things as well. Any little bit helps! So if you can, please do what you can! Thank you!!

Sending Chrystal palm tree and sunshine thoughts!

Thankful Thursday

I have been talking about doing an update on Piper for a while and I'm finally getting to it! It is a thankful update!

As you know, when my mom got sick Piper went to stay with my sister temporarily. She and the little blind yorkie, Nala, did not care for each other. Piper hid. A lot. We lost my mom, (That is still so very hard to say.) and Piper lost the only person she really liked. Although she would sit between mom and my sister and let her pet her because my sister would stay with mom at least one night a week. So Piper knew and tolerated my sister. But now she was in a new home with a dog and people who weren't her mom. No wonder she hid.

I shared before about Piper accidentally getting locked in a bedroom for many hours and afterward she suddenly got very friendly with my sister. Even tapping her leg like she did to my mom when she wanted food or attention. After this, if she could sneak past Nala, she would sit on my sister's lap.

Nala, who can see some shadows or something, seems to know when Piper is out and about and would try to follow her and maybe make her go away from her mommy and daddy (my sister and brother in law). One time she was following and Piper didn't know it, Piper stopped and Nala ran right into Pipers rear end! Bet that was a surprise to both of them!

So on to the current situation. Nala seems to have accepted that the kitty will be staying. Piper wants to be around at meal times, and so does Nala. They seem to have worked out a truce where they both get to beg, I mean, demand, at the table.

Piper: Hey!
Nala: Mom!
Piper: I want a bite!
Nala: I want a bite!
Piper: Me, me! Give me a bite!
Nala: Me! Give me the bite!
As long as they are on opposite sides of my sister's legs, they both get to watch dinner and get their due bites! Sharing is good! Sharing is progress!
And speaking of sharing:
Nala: zzzzzz
Piper: Purrrrrr
Sister: I. Can't... Move..

They may not be perfect buddies, but we'll take peaceful co-existence! When Nala is sleeping, Piper is happy to jump up on the arm of the chair and get her cuddles.

What will be really interesting is when they all move up to my mom's house, which should happen sometime this summer. Piper will know it's her home, not Nala's. Nala will know the place from visiting often, and they are HER mommy and daddy. Wonder what changes will happen then? We have our paws and fingers crossed that they'll all be good changes!


Update on myself. Therapy is going well! Thankful for that! But also taking a bit longer than I hoped so I will be another week. But that's it! I'm so ready to be back home with MY kitties! (You hear me Greg? Leo will go back to sleeping with me, not with you! I know nothing will ever make Cashmere come to me when you're around, but I'm taking Glitter back too!)

Caturday Art

I'm a little late in the day, but I wanted to try to get a Caturday Art post out this week. I picked the picture of Cashmere from our One Word Wednesday post and used Lunapic. I made too many, but I was having fun.

This is Beauty, my favorite filter






And here's the original

Thanks for stopping by! Happy Caturday!
