HI Sweets!
OOPS missed your note about the skating pawty. I couldn't get mom to bring me; she was watching the football game. But anytime you go to something fun and want a date, I'm there ♥

Hey hey Black Dog!
It's so pawsome to see you and the magical gallery of pictures....sure have missed that, and have missed pouncing over . Blame my sorry blogger, she has had one excuse after another...something about overnight guests and getting the Snowball Classic ready. Groan! Glad she's getting back to normal...or for what passes for normal, for a couple of weeks until work starts to get wild and wooley. Today is the folks' 36th anniversary. Goodness those two have been together since the dark ages.

We are enjoying Hedley's blogs and think his catpaign is fabulous. I'm bringing over a teapot of jasmine tea and some butter cookies. It's a little chilly so I thought we could sit by the fireplace.

Have a wonderful evening! Big hugs!

HI Sweets!
Hey, don't ever apologize to me! I know how those bloggers can be and mine is the same way. I was going to tell you sorry I didn't get over last night. MOL we can just keep apologizing or we can go play poker on Pinto Island and have a fun night.

Your yard sounds really neat and I'm so glad it's finished except for the minor details. Mom would love to see pics of it at any of the stages of progress and when it's final of course, too.

The folks are taking their "adult" vacay next week. No kids, no dogs, just them. They are meeting up with their NJ furriends in Pittsburgh and will be staying in a Carribean themed B&B. Mom can't wait! They will stop in Ohio on the way out and then on the way back, mom has a meet up planned with K Tuck/Q Mouse's mom and Steve's Gma. Same place as last year :) Mom is really looking forward to that.

It was great seeing you at the rink. I saw you went quiet, and I assume you got some company or something. Sorry your team lost and I am bringing a first aid kit to take care of the effects of your little skirmish. MOL

Have a wonderful evening! Got some big hugs for ya!

Hi ♥Sweets♥
That's so cool that Angel Gma Fay raised your dad right, to love the kitties. She must have been a very special purrson. A Happy Birthday to her, rest her soul, and I am sure she is giving Angel Beaux a cuddle right now.

How pawsome your fence, walkways and decking is wrapping up. I bet it looks super nice. Mom would love to see pictures of it and we hope your folks enjoy their mew upgrades to the back yard.

We had the rain today; it is cold and miserable. Mom loves to go outside by the fire pit, but maybe not tonight. I do think the rain stopped so maybe they can. Mom finds it very relaxing.

So let's have some hot cocoa with mini marshmallows and some crisp butter cookies to go with it. We can relax on the deck by the chimera and have a little warming fire.

Have a wonderful evening! Big hugs!

Hi dear ♥Jakar!
Aww, so dear Angel Beaux could have been your Aunt? That is surely pawsible. How wonderful your mom is to have worked so hard to make sure the ferals were trapped, neutered then released to where they can find food and shelter. No, we don't want them to have more kittens to add to the population, that just multiplies, as you well know. And we want the members of the clowder to live as long and happy of a life as they can. Without leaving a dynasty.

I'm bringing over a basket of cheerful wishes for your mom; I know it has been a difficult time for her. Mom and I are thinking of her and sending her virtual hugs across all these miles. Hope she can rest and relax tonight and not have to think about anything sad.

Shall we relax on the porch swing with some lemonade? It's almost time to get out the hot cocoa; it's been getting chilly here. Mom loves to go outside by the pond with a fire in the firepit in the evenings, it is so cozy and relaxing. How is the fence project going? Hope it's not too unsettling for you boys or for the feral community.

Have a peaceful and relaxing evening! Big hugs from your gal!

Hi Sweets!
Oh, hon, I'm so sorry to hear that one of the clowder passed away! Bless Beaux's little kitty heart and soul. Yes, Neelix is correct, she probably lived a good life, for a feral, but still is sad that she had something wrong with her and left our world so suddenly. I can understand that mom is very sad; I know your mom is very protective of the little feral community that comes close and gets some food. Beaux will be welcomed by our angels and we will hold her in our hearts.

Many gentle hugs!

Hi Sweet Black Dog!
I am so happy you and the roomies came over today to help me celebrate my shiny mew badge! It has been a pawsome day, especially since I had your company! Mom sure didn't expect me to get another COTD but was very happy to see me in the window.

Hope you like the BBQ hamster and the cole slaw. We have lots and lots of goodies, plenty to share. The mouse-mousse cuppycakes are pawsome; did you make those? Super!

The folks have been working on the little bathroom; well, Dad has and mom has been helping clean up and do whatever she can do. Dad is the lead construction guy. Mom is real happy with how the bathroom is turning out. Mom thinks it looks really elegant. She will send pics when it gets a little further along.

Hi Jakar, Hedley, and Neelix, It's Pete and the
Girls and the Formerly Ferals. We just wanted to check in and let you know that we are okay so far. It has been raining very hard since about 2:00PM and now we are beginning to get some pretty hard gusts of wind, dad estimates maybe fifty to sixty mph. The worst of the storm is due in the morning. Storm and the rest of the Formerly Ferals are in mom and dad's bedroom sacked out on the bed like they own it. I hope they know that when it's time to go to bed they'll have to make room for the rest of us. Dad will probably stay up to keep an eye on things. If he does, I'll probably stay in his lap.
He left one storm shutter of the windows in our sunroom so we could see out, but before dinner, he put it up and now we can't see outside. Somehow it seems scarier when you can hear the storm but cant see it. I wish Storm shutters were clear!
Well, we'll keep you all updated on Hurricane Matthew as best we can.
Purrs from all of us,
Pete and the whole family

HI Sweets!
Just in case you see this before the coronation, I have picked out an Aidan Mattox metallic jacquard ivory and gold v neck gown with an ivory cashmere wrap, diamond and gold hoop earrings and matching neck circle. I have a matching ivory and gold metallic boutonnière for your suit or tux, whichever you will be wearing.

Your mom is so sweet to sit with neighbor Aldonia to give her grandaughter a break. I hope and pray she heals well from her fall and it doesn't happen again. And your folks continue to be angels for neighbor Barbara as she heals from her surgery. Many healing wishes for both neighbors!

We are cold and rainy here. The folks are tearing the wallpaper off the 1/2 bath, anticipating that the vanity will arrive soon. Dad has re-plumbed the pipes to the sink so that they can install a fawncy wall mount faucet. It is an interesting project!

Mom is hoping she can get outside later and plant some more of her bulbs. She ordered a few too many and it is a lot of work! But it will look nice in the spring, I think. Mom hopes so anyway.

Hope to see you at the coronation, hon! I am always delighted to be enjoying your company. Many many hugs!

Hi Jakar!
I'll write more in the kinda fell asleep in the middle of my blogging tonight and is heading back to bed in a minute. I want to let you know how happy I am to hear that you only have two more treatments, and then you will be on a 3 month check up plan, then 6 month. You have been so strong, and have had the greatest care, and I am so very happy that your test results are all normal and that you have such a pawsitive prognosis. Very very wonderful to hear that it's been worth it and I hope you have much much more time on earth with your folks; it sure seems like you will.

We plan to be at the coronation tomorrow, mom has no clue what I will be wearing. We'll have to go shopping in the morning before the coronation. I intend to be there with you; and RennieBoots will join her furriends.

Have a peaceful and relaxing evening! Big sleepy hugs!

Hi Jakar, It's Storm and the Formerly Ferals
We just wanted to come by and say how happy we were to hear your report from your vet! Our dad says that he believes all of the prayers have been answered. The Lord guided your doctors, and a miracle happened. We believe it too. When we first moved into our new room, dad would come down and sometimes he would sit in the old armchair that he brought in and he would read to us, sometimes he would say prayers aloud to us. Something in the sound of his voice seemed soothing to me and I started to sit by his feet, then I got in his lap, he petted me and I learned to love it. Then Inky joined us, before you knew it, dad was buried in kitties. Now after dinner on Sunday night we listen as dad reads a long prayers list for our friends in need of prayers. We truly do believe in miracles or we would be living on the streets now.
We rejoice in your healing!
God Bless You, Jakar

Hi Sweet Black Dog!
Gosh, hon, I'm so sorry my mom couldn't get me over here last night. Don't know what happened; mom just ran outta steam after going shopping with the sis and rescue sis then out for half price appetizers at Applebees. It was a long evening. They were celebrating rescue sis's new job at PetCo. She is really excited. She works at a pizza place now, making salads and foods, and is ready for a change of pace.

My mom never tried to do pottery, but dad did years ago. Mom likes the look of it; that's so cool that your mom has many of the pieces her friend made. Biggest brother has a dear friend who has a pottery shop. For Christmas brother got mom a set of pottery cups; very beautiful. Mom just uses them for decoration and hasn't used them for drinking.

I hope neighbor Barbara is comfortable and not in too much pain. Hope she will heal quickly. For sure, mom is interested in the pics of the fence project! The folks started a renovation of the 1/2 bath downstairs; and ordered a new vanity and vessel sink. Dad has the bathroom ripped up and is moving some plumbing around. Mighty messy stuff!

Mom has kept many different kinds of fish and has some she loves but isn't keeping right now. She has a semi-peaceful community, has 7 big Denison Barbs which she LOVES and two big Angelfish, and some other assorted fish. Right now I think the Denison Barbs are her faves....besides her beloved fancy guppies. She has some sky blue albinos and some 1/2 black Hawaiian Blues that she is breeding together. They have big fluffy tails.

I sure had fun looking through the telescopes last night at the night sky at the castle. Very lovely evening and a pleasant snack afterward. It's raining here tonight so it doesn't look like the folks will get out by the firepit. Maybe tomorrow.

Have a wonderful evening! Big hugs!

Hi Sweet Black Dog!
Goodness, your mom is so sweet to take neighbor Barbara out shopping so she can be all ready for her recuperation after her toe surgery. Hope it isn't too hard for her. That's too bad the fence contractors are coming at the same time as her surgery, but it won't be too bad, and mom will be able to peek in on her from time to time. I am pretty sure the feral community will get over the commotion when things settle down, and they will like the mew fence.

Oh yes, my mom had a lot of fun shopping in the pottery shops. Very neat stuff those artists were making! Mom's sister is taking classes and she is very interested. Auntie's hubby is an artist, a painter. So they were both interested in the artists and their displays.

YEP mom gets to clean the fishie tanks. Well, she changes some water every week to keep things healthy. She has one big tank with a big fish community, and several smaller tanks with her fancy guppies. She has liked fishie tanks since she was a little kid; but stopped keeping them when her kids were little, now has taken it back up and enjoyng it. Mom has this nurturing disorder and she likes to raise baby guppies. MOL

Hi my Black Dog!
It's super to hear from you; I was kinda wondering cause I hadn't seen you or the brothers around. I was hoping it was because your mom was doing fun stuff; glad that was the deal! The 50th pawty sounds pawsome with the gourmet taco truck. Yummy! That's so neat that Dad got to reconnect with some he hadn't seen in years.

We have had a pawsome weekend...well, except for an ugly football game yesterday that mom would rather forget. The weather has been lovely; mom met up with her sister and BIL Saturday to go on a pottery tour and of course mom dropped some $$ buying some lovely things. Very neat stuff. Mom got a piece that the artist fires horsehair in the clay, and it's very unusual and attractive. Dad took middle bro, his g/f and his g/fs mom and brother sailing in Lake Michigan yesterday. No mishaps so I guess they had fun. Today he went to the club and raced....he jumped the starting gun and still managed to get beat. MOL gotta laugh. He needs practice. At least he didn't tip or fall off. That's happened before.

Mom worked outside some today then came in to clean fishie tanks. She got some mew fish the other day and is keeping an eye on them. She lost one but the others seem to be doing well.

Oh boy! Should be interesting at your house with the contractors doing the fences. A lot of noise I bet. Hope they get done soon and aren't too much of an annoyance.

OK, let's chill out again tonight; sounds like we could use some more relaxation time. Have a wonderful evening! Big big hugs from your gal!

I hope everything is well at your house; mom has been kinda busy. She had to go to a class in Warsaw Wednesday. No, not that Warsaw, but the one in Indiana. MOL It was a hike but mom took advantage and went on a little shopping trip after the class. She had some really great coupons.

I see Queen A Kieara has a pool pawty at the castle. RennieBoots and I are over there; hope you can join us and we can enjoy a nice refreshing swim and some frolicking in the cool water.

Hi Sweets!
I'm sure your folks were excited seeing that big win the other day; Texas is a VERY good team, and it must have taken some great playing to win that game.

Gosh that's scary about your neighbor falling. I'm glad the Jehovah's Witnesses happened to be in the right place at the right time. I know your mom would have been over in a heartbeat if she had only known. I hope she is doing well now, and can keep her phone near her for emergencies. Bless her heart. That is so wonderful that she had relatives who came out and made sure her front door was fixed and I bet they will keep a close eye on her too.

Shall we head to the soda fountain for a cheery cherry soda and maybe a cookie or two? Doesn't that sound good? Mom and dad have been watching what they eat so none of that for mom. No worries; mom is happy eating better and she knows it's much better for dad.

Having them cover the first $5000 isn't
bad, but these days that's a drop in the bucket. It doesn't take much to end up with a bill that high! Many years ago when the dog had a GDV (Twisted stomach) it cost the folks about $4000 to save her. Our regular vet at the time questioned their choice to treat her because she was already quite old, but to them there was no choice. Anyway, they counted the money well spent, as I'm sure your parents do with you.

Human insurance is a con. Mom has been fighting with her former doctor and her insurance company for the better part of a year because the doctor keeps billing her for something the insurance should have covered. It's a bureaucratic snafu having to do with the way they are billing the insurance. Everyone knows what the problem is but no one seems willing to FIX it, and Mom would rather fight them in court than pay the $206. It's a matter of principle now. Your Dad should go back to the insurance company and say "I was told that my premiums would not increase" and see if he can get them to back down. They will (try to) get away with raising them because most people don't ever question it. Hugs, Pique and the Zoo Crew

Hi Jakar!
Mom has been a little remiss answering blogs on CC. I am so glad to hear your good news! We continue to pray for you and your family.

Your treatment sounds a lot like mine. At my last check up the vet said I'm in remission, too! I still go every month for an exam and bloodwork. I go again next week. I still take my chemo capsule every other day with 1/2 Prednisolone twice/day. When the vet cut my Pred down to 1/2 each day, I stopped eating, so we went back to twice a day. Next week she will probably try once/day again and see how I do. She said if I make it to the two year mark we may discontinue the chemo, but we will see at the time. I continue to have my spells of not wanting to eat so mom gives me Mirtazapine to get me started again. My weight has increased a little each time I have gone in for a check up so the vet said I'm not allowed to gain any more. Instead of heaping my measuring cup at feeding time mom is making it level. I have always been a picky eater so it's hard to tell if I'm feeling bad when I don't eat or I just don't want to!

As of now, Cleo is stable with her urinary tract infections. She had crystals and has been changed to a urinary diet. Benny's constipation seems to be under control, too. Alex's paws are not quite healed so we're working with his pred to find the right dosage. He has plasma cell pododermatitis which is an immune disorder. It causes the paw pads to be swollen and scaley. We have been working with the vet on this for months now and they have gotten lots better. Apparently, it is a lifetime disorder that has to be managed as it occurs. Other than that, our feline family has settled down for now and mom can take a slight breather! Now if we can just figure out how to keep J.P. and Benny from bullying Binder life will be close to perfect!

Thanks for letting us know how you're doing. I will stay after mom to make sure she gets to the computer on a regular basis!

Love and Purrs,

That was very nice of your pawrents to
help out your Aunt with the furniture. It used to be that installers were full-service and would take care of stuff like that. Now it seems that everyone does as little as possible.

Is the insurance even going to be worth having now? Mom has looked into it a couple of times, but given the number of animals here it would be way more expensive than it would be worth. Especially if they started excluding illnesses that are "pre-existing". Hugs, Pique and the Zoo Crew

Hi Again!
OH I missed seeing that the Golden Bears won over Texas! That is super; a big WIN! The folks must have been pretty tickled over that one! Way to go!

Hi ♥ Handsome!
Thanks for the condolences; our boys went flat in the 2d and early 3rd periods, and let Sparty run all over and through them. They mounted a valiant comeback later but it was too little, too late. Oh well.

Bummer the 49ers lost and Dad's Raiders. Would have been nice to see one of the folks' teams win one. My pawrents and sis traveled to a little family reunion. Mom was really glad they went but boy it was a long day with all the driving. Mom is going to hit the hay early tonight.

Shall we go for a dip in the pool or would you rather play some ping pong at the clubhouse? Or do you feel like relaxing on the porch swing? All of those sound fine to me.

I'm enjoying A Kieara's trips, too, and have learned a lot about northern Michigan. Very interesting!

Have a wonderful evening! Big hugs!

Hi ♥ Jakar!
Oh gosh, that sounds like a LOT of work but should be worth it for Aunt Pam to have all the mew carpet and kitchen flooring! Super! How wonderful that your folks could come over and lend them a a hand or two. MOL

My pawrents have the game was bummed at some missed opportunities and just plain bad luck. But still plenty of time and we hope the boys won't play sloppy in the second half.

Have a super evening! Tell mom and dad to relax, they deserve a break! Big hugs!

Come on, Jakar. Every kitty ever born has
been "special needs" in one way or another! And now you're going to be labeled with a pre-existing condition? That just bites. Is it like the way humans used to be, where the insurance company you had when diagnosed still has to cover you, or do they get to deny you coverage too? Mom hopes that human insurance never goes back to that because for years she was stuck with Blue Cross and they were VERY expensive. In fact, before the AHA, they lost their insurance because they couldn't afford the $1400/mo premiums.

Anyway, we're glad that your family has given you a fighting chance. Our parents would do the same thing for us! Hugs, Pique and the Zoo Crew

Hey Sweets!
Oh gosh, never be sorry for your mom being busy! No worries at all, you can leave a shortie or skip a note. I know we will be having a nice evening together whatever our bloggers are doing. ;) I'm looking forward to the Full Moon pawty tomorrow and I see Queen A Kieara is taking us to The Grand at Mackinac Island so we can take a horse and carriage ride around the island. I love looking at the bridge, all lit up at night. It's so beautiful and is relaxing just being on the island.

Have a wonderful evening! Big hugs!

You have insurance? That's cool, though
it's too bad that it has maxed out. There is no way our parents could afford insurance for 14 of us! But they would not hesitate to spend whatever it took to make one of us well if there were even a remote chance. Just like your folks! Besides, what good would gold be? You are much more valuable!

Hi My sweet Black Dog!
MOL yep I would say great minds sure DO think alike! That's why we get along so well ;) Mom likes so many of the lines from both those movies....and loved Barbara Billingsly "speaking jive" in the Airplane movie. It was a hoot. Can you tell mom likes movies with happy endings; she likes to smile and even cheer at the end of a movie.

Are you up for a walk along the beach tonight? I hear the Full Moon pawty is coming up soon. Friday in fact. It should be fun....I always have a great time and I'm sure A Gracie and A Elmie will have plenty of food there. We can bring some drinks and a platter of brownies.

Have a wonderful evening! Big hugs!
