Sunday & Mom

Taking care of mommie

Thanks for all of your kind words and purrs to help get the mom better here. Things seems to be moving along slowing in the getting better department but I am doing my bestest of the best to make sure she is getting lots of rest and taking all of her medications on time. Some things are getting better and some are getting worse. I am guessing she will see her vet the first part of the week to make sure the lung is doing fine and maybe finding out where her voice went.

I really want the mom to get better soon but . . . and this is between you and me . . . I am enjoying the snuggle and sleep time we are spending together. Her tummy is the greatest place to catch some zzzzzs on.

Hope you all have a wonderful, peaceful, and restful Sunday.

Just our luck . . . we are trying our best to get to Asta's to help her celebrate her fifth birthday today. The traffic seems to be a bit heavy but I know if we are patient we will soon be on our way and arriving in plenty of time to help Asta celebrate.

Everyone is invited to Asta's birthday. In honor of her birthday she is having a commentathon too and any comment left today or tomorrow will benefit a rescue shelter of one lucky commentor's choice.

See you there!

A Birthday Party For Opus

The cat was, as they say, almost let out of the bag yesterday when Opus showed up a day early wondering all about the birthday decorations. We explained that we were getting ready for Sock's birthday and do you believe it but he fell for that explanation. Phew.

Today is the big celebration as my nephew, Opus, celebrates his 16th birthday!

The gang was waiting in anticipation as Olive teleported over with Opus for his big day. We jumped out yelling "SURPRISE"! We did it . . . Opus didn't have a clue . . . Thanks Olive for getting him here.!

. . . Because of Opus's delicate condition at this time Olive is overseeing the food preparation to make sure special attention is given to the food presented at the party. No tummy troubles today are needed.

Head on over to the buffet table, there is plenty to eat and something there that you will enjoy.

Karl sent special for Opus's birthday delicious candy imported from Italy. Trust me you just cannot eat one.

After all of the surprises, visiting with many friends and eating way too much Olive is asking that Opus take a little time out and read his birthday cards. Olive keeps a close watch on Opus making sure he maintains his health and doesn't over do.

From Momo

. . . now it's time for a nice drink . . . I suggest that you try one of each, so yummy.

You are welcome to stay as long as you like. The buffet and drinks are open all day long. When you do decide to go I have two DVD's for you to take with you. I hope you enjoy them. But before you go . . .

. . . you won't want to miss the laser show that Opus and I have planned for you. We have been working on practicing for the last several weeks.

Thanks for sharing in Opus's surprise birthday bash. We all are so glad that you could stop by.

Getting Ready

We are all pitching in and decorating for Opus's party on the 22nd.

As you can see we are working hard on putting the final touches on things. Just hope Olive can keep Opus at home and he will be none the wiser. You see when they teleported over a day early we convienced him that it was Sock's birthday we were working on and that his invitation would soon arrive. Phew, that was close. Be sure to stop back tomorrow afternoon for Opus's surprise Sweet Sixteen Birthday Party Celebration!

Thanks to Jan's Funny Farm Gang, the Sherwood Bunch, Karl, Ruis, Momo, and Socks we might just be ready in time.

Purrs Needed for ML

The Sherwood Bunch is needing your good thoughts and purrs for ML. Please stop over and leave kind words.

Update on ML:"The second round of antibiotics seems to be doing a good job on cat bite, a puncture wound from Missy “The Mouth” Blue Eyes. I’ve lost use of three fingers on my right hand, and there is nerve damage, but was told the nerves probably will grow back? If this treatment doesn’t work, I’ll need surgery on my hand. Yikes! Please keep sending purrs & purrayers. ~Mom ML"

Hats off to ML & KC

This post is dedicated to my good friend ML and KC.

I have been working on designing a special award for quiet a while now and today it is finished and the first recipient is my good friend KC and ML. For all that they do this award isn't enough but it is a small way that I can show my appreciation for everything that they do to help so many. If ML had a penny for each word that she has typed over at CB she would be a wealthy person. Each and every day information is gathered, typed up, and posted on CB so we will know what is going on with all the furries in our blogging community. Also, ML and KC have for many year run the auction helping many in need of $$$. The work running the auction is also demanding plus the donations provided by them and getting the items shipped to the winning bids. And not to forget the many VSquillions that have been adopted and loved!

As we all know ML and KC's hearts are as good as gold, always willing to help those in need, sending kind words to those needing a boost, and best of all the friendship that is given to those that know them.

Please accept this award as a token of my appreciation for all that you do and all that you are.
Love your friend,

ps: KC, please pass this award along to those you feel are deserving for going the extra mile in helping those in need.
