Hello all you wonderful friends! As most of you already know there will be no party for Finney tonight due to my mom's recent loss of 2 relatives. One on Wednesday and another on Thursday. Quite a shock and everyone is still reeling. We wanted to let you know that we've rescheduled Finney's party for next Saturday the 25th which is also our Michael Jackson party. It'll be twice the fun this way! We'll be playing all kinds of MJ songs and also a lot of Janet Jackson too (cause she's pawsome). Believe me we'll need to party and have fun after this week and the coming week.
Mom has 2 funerals to go to now. If they were more like the ones the Tabbies have (an Irish wake and celebration of life), it wouldn't be so bad at all. Mom says she's been to a few really beautiful and uplifting funerals and a couple of ones that were parties. She says THAT'S the way to send someone off! Anyways, save that date and please, please, please try to make it because by then we will REALLY need some friends to help us party and have a good time, which we intend to do. Thank you all for the prezzies and special thoughts of prayers and kindness to all of us, myself, Finney and Alex. Later this week when everything is over, we'll say our special thank yous to everyone. Just know that we are receiving them and reading them and they mean so furry much to us. Okay mommy wants to talk now.
Hello everyone, thank you again for everything. Barring anything else happening (god help us), the party will go on next Saturday along with the MJ party! I promise it will be a great, great time. We'll all need it by then for sure. I also want to let you all know I'm doing okay. I know that some of you are terribly, terribly worried about me and I know it's mostly my fault because I'm an emotional person. But trust me, this is far from the first time I've lost someone and I am going through the normal grieving process. I'm not hysterical and making myself sick, I'm eating okay and getting rest. I know because of my health problems many of you are concerned about that and you don't know how much that means to me.
So I want to you know I'm okay, please don't worry. I'm very, very sad, but okay. I'm going to work in my garden today, go to the shelter to drop off some food, and just chill. It was just Wednesday that one passing happened and Thursday for the other, so it's still extremely fresh and I have to go through this process. You are all WONDERFUL and LOVING and I don't know what I would do without any of you and I hope I never have to find out. Please know that from the bottom of my heart you are all not just "virtual friends" to me, you are my lifeline. Friends that not only need me, but will be there for me if I need them. That's the best feeling in the world.
The saying is true, you can measure a person's life by the number of true friends they have. Both of those people in my life had MANY friends and we are devastated for ourselves because we don't get to share in their laughter anymore. But we are so much more full in our lives for having known them. And I feel the same about all of you. I'm on the poor side financially, but friend wise and love wise, I'm as rich as they come! This song resonates with me right now so I thought I'd play it for you all:
100 years to live
We're sending you lots of purrs of love and comfort to all of you.
Thank you Teebo, hope to see you at our party next week!
Tons of hugs and support for your sweet mommy. We're so glad you've got these Catster friends here. You've been such a supportive and pawsome friend to so many kitties and people. We can find love & friendship in unusual places & circumstances - even in an online kitty community. We understand the feelings of sadness, loss and grief. We love that song '100 years' - I've had it on playlist on and off. You're all in our thoughts...
Gumpy, Nadi and Mom
MOL! I forgot who's diary I was in so I posted as Finney! What a silly tuxie I am. Oh my wonderful Gumpy Goo and his family. You're so good to us and we love you dearly! That song is so beautiful isn't it? It's touching and so true. Mom also has that other song in her head by Don Henley, in a New York minute. That one is more sad though so we thought we'd play this one.
We love u sooo mush Lacey! Ur furmily is in our hearts 'n we think of u often!! What a grand video dat iz 'n we know's we not haz furry long here, so we think enjoy efury day, enjoy da days each as dey come. Make da most of our life, coz we only has a short time to love, care 'n show one another how much we pawpreciate 'em. Dat's why memories r so cheished. Da mind is a grand item. Our hearts purrrrz fur u 'n ur furmily!!
Thank you Kathy and Milo. I just went across the street to see Rick. He was home briefly getting his new suit ready for the wake tomorrow. Nothing is decided yet but he might move in with his mom. Even though I know she needs him and it's best if he does, he won't be right across the street anymore, he'll be all the way across town. Plus he's working a lot more now so I guess I'll hardly see him.
I just came from bringing some food to the shelter and as I drove around the corner first thing I did was look over to my uncle's house expecting to see him sitting on the porch swing, waving like crazy and smiling that big smile like he did every day! Damn this stinks. You know that saying that pets leave footprints on your heart? Well some humans leave large imprints on them too.
We just worried about you.
It's okay Zach! We know you care and we LOVE that about you guys. Mom's already dreading the next 4 days. Tomorrow is Jim's wake (Rick's dad) then Monday morning is his funeral. Then Monday evening is our uncle Donald's wake and Wednesday is the funeral. Blah! Mom doesn't even know if her black skirt still fits her. Not much to wear in her closet and no money to buy anything. Wish we'd known about this she first got paid! At least she could have tried to buy an outfit. We just heard Rick take off on his motorcycle. He must have come home from his mom's to go for a ride and get away. He NEVER wears his helmet which drives mom nuts! The last thing any of us need right now or EVER is to have something else happen. It's motorcycle week up here in NH so that's all we're hearing right now is bikes everywhere.
Helmets are state law here. It's good he's gone for a ride. Does he have a Harley or a crutch rocket? Dad has a Kawl it's on my background.
A Harley. They tried to get that law passed here but it didn't fly. He's a very responsible rider but everyone else isn't. Most bike accidents happen from vehicles hitting motorcycles.
You are so right about that. Dad almost got hit two weeks ago on his, the only thing that stopped the car from coming completely over him was him kicking the back door! The driver got mad at Dad! Dad said all it left a small scratch that could probably be buffed out and that's all. Dad said he wished he had dented it in after they flipped him the rod before they drove off.
That's terrible. He's back now, that was a short ride.
Glad he's safe 'n home now!! It will be furry sad if he moves, but might be's da bestest thing fur his mommy! U will certainly miss him 'n it will open another wound in your already saddened heart. Mommy always tries to think positive, ya know? People come into our lives, share wif us, some for a season, but ALL fur a reason, some pass on by, some make us cry, but SOME stay in our hearts furefur 'n are a lifetime committment. Our furiends are like that. U are like that.
Zach, dood, ur dad shoulda kicked his face in! The jerk! Peeps don't respect motorcycle drivers 'n they don't see 'em!! Mom sez when peeps get on da freeway, they turn into ravin' maniacs! Only self inclined. Makes ya wonder if they efur heard of stoppin' to smell da roses? Nah...
I believe it's a law here also to wear helmets. It should be.
Lacey, hang in there precious, ur mommy needs ur support 'n love right now. Hugs 'n know we are here.
Milo, Mom always notices Motorcylces but that's what you do when you have a loved one that rides 4 days out of the week.
Lacey, shhhh don't tell anyone but Mom's on her fourth Mojito. Hope your Mom is chilling with something. We are having a party between my page and pandas. You ought to come and join in. We are all waiting for Panda to have her kits.
Finn I hope i didn't offend you, We were just geared up for a party.
Lacey's Mom, that song is beautiful. Take your time to grief. This is so hard. We are so sorry. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
P.S. we are glad to have found you as a Catster friend. You are an awesome person.
HUH? No Zach, don't be crazy. I'm sorry buddy, mom's not in the mood at all to party. She really isn't. She's been trying not to cry all day but there's been some times when she can't help it. And the next couple of days are already weighing on her. She's got to go to Jim's wake tomorrow, then his funeral early on Monday. Then later on that same day, she goes to her uncle's wake then his funeral on Wed. Already she's got a migraine from crying so I can't imagine what she'll be like all this week.
Thank you Mietzi! We're so glad we met you too. We love you guys and think you're all so neat. We love talking to your mommy. Thanks so much for the kind words sweetie. We appreciate it.
Hush, I know your Mom don't feel like it. I just didn't want to intrude on what was supposed to be your big day. Just to let you know, John, Blizzs Dad just went to try to get some shuteye. He says if it happens in the middle of the night he will post the babies arrival.
Does the skirt fit? Know that we will be here and when you need a clown let me know. Till then, do what you do. Love ya. Take your meds and curl up with the runts. Email me tomorrow if you need me, my plans have some what fell through. We had bad storms with really strong winds and David has to go to work to clear trees of houses.
Just because we're not partying doesn't mean you guys can't have fun. I would never want that! This is not your pain to go through so please enjoy life and enjoy each other. That's what is meant to happen and that's what I want.
I saw that, hope the babies come tonight!
Ps. I meant your headache Meds btw. BigMOL! Of course, a Vicoden and a 1/2 of a Naproxen will knock a migraine out nicely. Remember, I've battled Cluster Headaches from time to time myself.
Could you shoot me a vicoden through the computer? That sounds so good!
I wish I could but then I might get carted of to jail.
Thinking of you my friend, take care and thanks for posting that great song, love it!! and I love New York minute too :)
We are all here to support you and do whatever we can to comfort you.
Thank you Shadow! Love you guys!
Hi Lisa, mom has had you on her mind so much every since you got the first blow, praying for you, this is difficult anytime but to get hit back to back, that is just so much. It is good to hear you are taking care of you sometimes care givers forget to do that when they are doing so much for others.
I'll definitely be coming to the pawty! I even have an MJ song as my theme song - Bad! MOL!
Thank you Calie and mom! We appreciate it. MOL Jezzy. That you are! BAD!
This is our favourite Michael Jackson mega mix, done by a DJ (Robin Skouteris)that we really Love!!! so we shall be dancing to this :)
Hi Lacey, Finn, and Mom ~ you've been in our thoughts today. Sending big hugs and purrs your way.
Love, Tully and Mom
Thank you furry much Tully. Tough day, getting to bed early.
We are so sorry to hear of your lose of two friends! you are in our thoughts and prayers!
Xena, Mom Peggy and family
