Since Alex has some serious bridge duties today, and Lacey wrote about my poor momma's back, I'm going to give you the good news! Ingen is leaving tomorrow to go home! She's being picked up by a great company called Precious Pets Transport Services. Jen researched all of her options and frankly I'm very glad she chose this one. She talked with the lady all about their company and her concerns and felt very satisfied and good about her decision. Me too, I have a good feeling! It will take a couple of days but this way Ingen doesn't have to be in the belly of a plane or be left at the airport with total strangers, or anything like that. She's going to be well cared for. And Jen can even call the drivers to check on her. Although I hope they don't talk on the phone while they're driving!!!
Anyways, we're so excited that Novi and Lil' Bear will see their sisfur again and Jen just cannot wait to hold her girl in her arms. My mom will be sending out a newsletter with the details tomorrow about where the money went and thank everyone. But we're thanking you all here as well because you all did a TREMENDOUSLY WONDERFUL THING by helping Jen and Ingen out. I'm so proud to call you all my furriends. You are all so loving and generous! I'll say it again, the way everyone rallied was just the most pawsome thing I have ever seen.
Now! Mom is going to make herself something to eat now that her new friend mr. Valium is helping her be able to do so without hurting too much, MOL. I don't know who that guy is, but he's nice. I like him! Mom's not crying or yelling OUCH anymore! And THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to the kitties and their momma who read Lacey's diary and donated some money to IBD kitties to help out my mommy. Jeez you guys are so unreal! Mom hopes someday she's in a position to do the same for others. And if she ever can, that's a PROMISE she'll keep! Pay it forward guys! Anyway you can, pay it forward cause it feels darned good to give to others.
NOW! I am also furry excited about Newman's Poopology book coming out. Whoo hoo! I'll finally have something to read in the box when I'm doing my bidnezz. MOL.
Hooray fur Ingen!
And so nice to hear that Mr Valium is doing some good work fur your Mom.
We are keeping the fuel coming fur those purr engines of ours!
We are so glad that Ingen will be on her way back to her Mom and Novi. We love a story with a happy ending. Mom agrees that when you can do good for others, you should do so, in any way, even a prayer or a word of encouragement, that is paying it forward.
Glad your Mom is not feeling that much pain anymore. Thank you Mr. V.!
HOORAYS and HAPPY RIVER DANCES for this news! This is the best news and a very safe way to travel from the sounds of it! Just keep an eye on that Ingen kitty... she can fit herself into the darnedest places!
So glad to hear this.
MOL, Pipo when you say you'll keep the fuel coming...it sounds like you should be writing that in Newmie's diary! MOL!!!
River you ain't kidding! I think Jen was telling my mommy that they have all the kitties and doggies in large kennels in the van or truck or whatever they use. They don't let the kitties out at all, they all have their own litter boxes. They said they learned that lesson the hard way, a long time ago. Same as Jen did. MOL. So THAT'S good!
I think he meant that he was begging for the food(Fuel) bowls to be kept full, cause he always complains if the slightest dent is in the pile of kibbles, MOL!
MOL I like my version better Minko. MOL. It's funnier.
OK! We sure need to be laughing more!
While nothing by comparison, meowmy is stiff from gardening work and thinks she is getting a cold too...there is a nasty one making the rounds at her work. UGH!
Once again, so glad that the Mr V is such a good helper at your Mom's back musculature!
We really do need to be laughing more. Especially today!!! Mom figures it's better for her back then being stressed at the caca heads living next door.
Mom said she's going to take a full Mr. V at bedtime and hopefully tomorrow she won't wake up with ungodly pain! Her words. Every morning she wakes up and as soon as she opens her eyes, her left lower back down to her knee is throbbing like a jackhammer.
Sleep is a healer too, probably more than giggles!
Wonderpurr news! we bet Ingen will have a story to tell when she returns to her Moms loving arms....and she will have a lot to say about her trip across the US to get to Washington state...
We are so happy her trip is almost over! we will be praying for her safe trip!
Thanks for letting us know.
Xena and family
That is excellent news about Ingen! I am ashamed to say that I never donated after all. :/ That day when I was looking for the thing to click on, I was on mom's iPhone (amazing what my paws can do...) and it just wouldn't show. Then I just gave up. terrible I know. Thank goodness you all are better cats than I.
I am glad your mom is feeling better! Your mom ought to try Mr Valium's good buddy Mr Xanax. Now there's a happy guy.
Mr. Valium, Momma's little helper is great but I have to agree with Toki our Mom prefers Mr. Xanax. She'll get a bottle full every couple months and she uses them when needed. Heck, the way work is right now she needs to be taking them now.
Anyways, as you see DB, I'm back. Mom woke up this morning and seen we had the best tribute anyone could give Tux. (See Tuxie's Diary--Essie's comment, Sleeper and Samhain's entry they dedicated their beloved dog sis's new page to Tux, Cutest dog ever!) Well, it made Mom feel so good knowing that her and Tux's story inspired someone to go ahead and make a painful memorial page to their favorite dog, that she decided to let us use her typing skills to check out our friends.
Catster people are awesome people and I'm so psyched that Ingen is going home today.
Dang, Zach - we just read your comment to the Mama and she started crying again! Cut that out! Anyway, glad to hear the good news about Ingen - it sounds like the perfectly right choice. And the Mama wants to say that she will gradually be working on Miss Essie's page. Plus we has a short Halloween story in the works that we'll post a little closer to the holiday. Need to go read Lacey's diary now...
We're so ecstatic that Ingen will be heading home. Hoping that Mr Valium helps your Mom feel better!
She's leaving soon guys! Hopefully being picked up in the next couple of hours! Just in case, Alex started another POTP thread to make sure Ingen has safe travels if anyone wants to go and add some paws.
Toki please don't be ashamed or feel bad! We raised PLENTY of money and if you had problems doing it, it wasn't your fault. Don't worry about it buddy, I'm sure in the future there will be another Catster in trouble and we'll need help. You tried.
Ingen has just been picked up guys!!! She's on her way home! Will take a couple of days.
Oh, we're so glad!
Hope she has a quiet, uneventful trip!
very boring uneventful trip.
We add our motion to that idea, too, kitties...we just want her safe in the arms of her mom.
Safe travels, Ingen!
See ya later!
sssssssssssssooooooooooooooooooooo Glad it rained today, so we could try and find out what has been goin' on with our pals ...here at catster.... we see we have missed alot... thanks,Finney for such a pawtastically informative report ...bringing us up to speed.......
ssssssooooooooooooo hard being a country kitty on the prairie. so much outside work,we just can't keep up with dogster and catster.... we are racin' a clock to try to beat winter showing up before we are ready....
Wishing for Ingen to have a safe and calm trip to her new home in Washington with her Mom.
Please take care of yourself Momma Lisa. We are going to send some extra purrs to you too, just for good measure.
Thanks Biggles, I hope you are feeling much better too! Are you home from the hospital yet? Hi Precious, we're trying to keep everyone very informed because our wonderful Catster community has been been a tremendous help. So everyone deserves to know the updates and be in the loop! Plus it's exciting and positive news and we all could use some of that right now.
We agree everyone, nice, safe, boring, calm, uneventful trip! Poor Ingen must be wondering where on earth she's going now.
It is wonderful and appreciated that you do. We luv you for it. The beautiful weather we are having and the paw massages can only help an aching back.
Hope your Mom feels better. It's no fun when pain is involved. Glad Ingen made it home to her family.
Sorry to hear your mum's back is hurting her and I send purrs that she's better soon. Sorry about this message being a bit late mate. Between mum's work and catster's fleas I have been a out of the loop for some time now. Also I'm sorry for scaring you with the title of my last diary entry. I'm as fit as bull and going no where.
Oohhh, I missed doing my diaries! I feel like it's been forever. It's getting cold here, blech. Freezing last night. That's good news Ka-zar, we don't need anymore of our friends being sick or worse!
No, we don't!
