Oh Em Eff Gee, We Missed You!


Thank you. Over and over, thank you.

Our mom is still working through all the emails and comments and so appreciates each and every one. A plethora of them came through the Cat-Blog-O-Sphere and we are all very overwhelmed and honored by your concern and prayers! She wishes she could thank and hug you all in person and let you know how much it means to have so many people she's never even met in person supporting her in healing and wishing her well!

And, it worked!

We're back to life here and getting used to a new normal. A slower mom, but that's OK.

Mom's now fully diagnosed and under the care of good doctors. She's on meds for hypothyroidism (even though she disappeared before our eyes by losing 15 pounds for no reason), and hypertension, and has CKD. She's feeling good and back to work, and still taking it easy.

And, newsflash, we are now allowed to sleep in the bedroom again! We had been banned. Can you believe that?

Piggy blames me, because I snore and our mom hates repetitive noises, especially when she's sleeping. But I blame Piggy because he gets up a lot at night to poop and pee and drink water from the toilet and crunch dry food loudly and then get back in bed.

Now, you tell me, which is more annoying...a bald, pink thing drinking from the toilet and THEN getting back into bed and LICKING AND PATTING YOUR FACE...or, a delicate breathing sound emanating from a woolly, black, bat-like, kitten-sized Devon Rex who is brilliant and svelte?

I rest my case.

Anyway, she needs uninterrupted sleep now, and her attempts to ignore our incessant howling at and banging on the bedroom door all night were pissing her off, so she gave in and now let's us sleep in the big bed again.

Or, as we choose to believe, she simply realized we miss her so much now that she is out and about in the world again, because we got used to having her home all to ourselves for so many months. So we all sleep together in bed all night again, even though I still snore and Piggy still acts like a pig.

She's so easy to train, that one.

We are so happy. And all is good in the world.

Happy Friday!

We are glad your Mom is on the road to recovery AND that you get to snuggle, snore, crunch and lick with her at night again...we just had a houseguest (that has 2 Furrydance cats of her own) stay with us and she INSISTED on having at least one cat sleep with her...and 3 did, hahameow!

Glad your mom is feeling better.
If your mom would put the toilet seat/lid down, Piggy couldn't drink out of it. Ugh!

Hello, Sir Grover. We are new bloggers, but our mom said she has read your blog for a while now. We're sorry to hear of your mom's health problems - that has to suck for all of you. We're glad to hear that maybe things are getting better, though. As far as being kicked out of the bedroom, we can only think that your mom must have not been thinking clearly because of her illness or her meds. The Ones Who Came Before us learned my mom real good that no matter how much sleep you lose when a cat is in your bed, you lose 10x that much when you try to keep them out. :)

Your new friends, Fuzzy and Zoe (from Oklahoma, but don't hold that against us!)
