Mia (1994 - October 30, 2007)

We lost Mia tonight to the Rainbow Bridge. She ran off on her own this evening. She has been a part of our lives for the last 12+ years and I can't believe how much it hurts & how much I miss her already. I hope she is off playing with all her friends who have gone before her. I'd love to write something wonderful in tribute to her but I just can't right now. We will be offline for a while trying to carry on but will try to get by our friends. We love you all...

Ghost, BG & Jen

Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen things about us:

1) Ghost almost was killed when she was outside feral kitty
2) Mia was rescued by Mom's oldest sister
3) BG showed up on Labor Day 2006
4) Ghost has been here longest, then Mia, then BG
5) When Mia was rescued, she had to ride almost 2 hours to get to forever home
6) BG loves rides - she even tries to go to work with Mom
7) Ghost has no teeth
8) Mom thinks Mia is at least part Meezer because of her voice & blue eyes
9) The V-E-T thinks BG is pure or close to pure Jack Russell woofie
10) Ghost had eye removed due to bad infection
11) Mia likes baby food (turkey or chicken)
12) BG is 1st woofie that Mom ever had
13) Mom is having problems with all the digital cameras so she is frustrated that we can't post pictures.

Captain Jack & Dante - our newest friends

Patches, Mittens, Mistrie & Patches - we love the beautiful big piney woods where they live and their pictures

Monday Meme

Our friends Patches, Mittens, Mistrie & Precious from the Big Piney Woods tagged us for the desktop meme. This is the picture from one of Mom's work laptops (she has two).

This was after she had cleaned up some of her icons last week so it actually looks fairly neat. She has some useful programs on the computer for things like time tracking, ad ware detection, IM etc... that she uses for work (she said they were all free if anyone is interested).

We think everyone has been tagged so we won't bother with rules or tagging anyone. Mom said she is horrible with helping us blog but she has been working weird hours for work and a lot so we will let her by for now. She hopes to have things running smoother soon but work is going to take a lot of her time for the next month. We try to get to our friends blogs & comment as much as we can...

Cat's Prayer

Although I am too proud to beg,
and may appear to be a very independent creature,
I ask for your loving care and attention! I
rely on you for my well being..much more than
you may realize!

This I promise you, my benefactor, that I will
not be a burden on you nor will I demand more of
you than you care to give!

I will be a quiet peaceful island of serenity for
you to gaze upon: a soft soothing body to caress,
and I shall purr with pleasure to rest your
weary ears!

Since I am a gourmet who appreciates different
taste sensations, I pray you will give me a variety
of nutritious foods and fresh water daily!

You know dear friend, how I love to go nap!
Allow me! I pray, a warm sheltered place where
I can rest peacefully and feel secure!

If I am wounded in battle or suffering from
disease, please tend me gently, I pray, and see
that I am treated by loving and competent hands!

Please protect me from the inhuman humans
who would hurt and torture me for their own
amusement! I am accustomed to your gentle
touch and am not always suspicious nor swift
enough to avoid such malicious acts!

In my later years when my senses fail me
and my infirmities become to great to bear,
allow me the comfort and dignity that I
desire for my closing days and help me gently
in my pain or passing!

We know that Jasmine's Mom answered this prayer for her as well as Gizzy & Millie. Wish all our feline relatives would be so lucky as to have happy homes. Until we meet again at the Bridge Jasmine - rest well with Gizzy.

Purrs to Millie, her Mom & Mr Karate....please go visit
Millie & family to give them your purrs
