Words from Mom

Mia and Ghost wanted me to update all our friends on how the family is holding up. We had a good Thanksgivng but it was a little depressing because we cleared out most of my Mother's clothing (it was a lot). Fortunately my sisters were able to help a great deal and most of the clothes were donated. Christmas is going to be hard again this year (last year Mother was in the hospital during Christmas)...

In other news... I'm working on my Christmas shopping. I always seem to get my neice & nephews a lot of stuff that they want... Speaking of the kids, I saw where the Poi Rats & Cats human sister Kinsey is being home schooled this year. My sister has home schooled all three of her children - she is still home schooling her 13 year old & 10 year old (my oldest nephew is in college). Hope that is working out well for Kinsey & her Mom.

Weather is bad here tonight (thunderstorms, tornado warnings, and high wind) so I need to sign off now. Hope everyone has a safe evening and that the storms pass through without causing any damage...

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to all our furry & human friends. We got turkey & ham to eat so it was a good day for us. Mom said they took care of some depressing things but we will let her talk about them later maybe....

Bad day

Mom took me to stabby place this morning!!! I had two sticks for vaccinations but then they did other things to me! And that mean old vet talked about my age & that I needed more dry cat food & less stinky goodness! All because I've lost weight. It not fair!!!!

A word from Mom

I've taken over the blog for today to thank everyone for their kind thoughts and purrayers. My Mom lost her battle with cancer and even though we miss her terribly - we are comforted by the knowledge that she is no longer in pain. I just got back from the funeral home not long ago and the number of people and flowers was overwhelming for myself and my family. Thanks to all of my friends & family for all the in person & online comforting thoughts & purrayers

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there, I do not sleep
I am a 1,000 winds that blow
I am the diamond glints on snow
I am the sun on ripened grain
I am the gentle autumn rain
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled light
I am the soft star that shines at night
Do not stand at my grave and cry
I am not there; I did not die.

    Happy Anniversary!

    A word from our Mom...

    I (and the cats) would like to wish my parents a very happy 49th wedding aniversary! That is a LONG time!!! I would like to also thank all my online friends (both human & feline) for all the prayers (or as the girls call them purrayers) for my family. Mother is still in a lot of pain and is now taking more pain medicine. I believe the pain medicine is helping Mother be more comfortable. Now back to the girls.... Jen

    Mom is very concern about Gramma & we are doing as much as we can to help Mom feel better. Well at least I am - Ghost hisses at her. I think Ghost has athritis in her back paws causing them to hurt and to limp. I hope she feels better she is always grumpy if she has to go to the V-E-T.... Mia
