well, it was a furry crazy and sad day yesterday. Not only here on Catster but at home. Everything mommy has had to deal with in the last year just came pouring out of her like Niagara Falls and she couldn't stop crying all day! THEN she gets an email from Tigger's daddy saying that Tigger went with Alex to the bridge. Which made her cry even more. Alex says he was such a good boy and so brave. He didn't cry, although he was so sad to leave his family behind. Rest assured she is taking VERY good care of him and pretty soon he'll be as good as new and ready to assume his angel duties. BUT! she said he already started some of those duties yesterday.
On his way up the stairs of the kitty bridge that leads to the beautiful place where kitties roam and play all day, he was holding Alex's paw and looking around. "wow!!! It's so amazing and colorful up here. So bright! Good thing I'm not afraid of heights!" He said. He was looking around everywhere so quickly, didn't want to miss a thing, when he spotted a gray and white kitty, wandering around, so sad and purrty mad at himself for getting lost! Tigger slowed down and pulled on Alex's paw and said "hold on Auntie Alex, look!!! Look down there! Isn't that Linus?" Alex turned and said, "Tigger! GREAT EYE! We've been all looking for him for a furry long time and NO ONE could find him! You did it!"
So Tigger and Alex swooped down and found two kitties on their way up to the bridge at the same time, Jaffa and Grub. Alex said, "you guys want to come and help us? He's a handful and we need to make sure he does not get away!" "SURE" they said very gladly. So these 4 kitties swooped down and chased Linus like crazy glowing bugs and made him run so fast that he ran right into the yard of someone that his pawents were visiting! Alex said "okay guys, let's really get him over there, ramp it up! Turn on the meowzers and let's make sure he's spotted!" Oh that Linus was so mad. He couldn't figure out why these glowing tinkerbell type kitties so small they looked like bugs, were zooming in front of his face, his mouf, his ears. He kept swatting at them and thank goodness he missed! That's the last thing we need is to have 3 new angels get their buzzers beat up! MOL.
So Linus ran and ran and he was yelling and meowing "get off me you crazy cats! What do you think you're doing! Leave me alone!" Then he looked closely and said "Alex! Is that you? What in the world are you chasing me for?" Alex looked at him and said "because you crazy numbskull! LOOK!" Alex, Tigger, Grub and Jaffa all pointed at Linus's mommy and daddy and when he saw them he couldn't believe it! "OMC!" he yelled! "Thank you thank you! Oh Tigger buddy, I'm so sorry to see you like this. But you look grand! Very beautiful lights coming from you all. How lovely!" Tigger said, "thank you Linus, this is my first official angel act. You better get over there before they leave!" Then they all gave Linus angel hugs and watched as Linus raced towards his mommy and daddy yelling and meowing "HEY! I'M HERE! I'M HERE!!! DON'T LEAVE ME!"
"Ahhhhh," Alex said. "you all did so great. Look at that! Not even at the bridge yet and already you saved a kitty, one of your furriends!" Tigger gave Alex a hug and said he was so excited, he felt so good about what they'd done. Then he said "now let's go, I hear there's great catinis and trout samiches up there!" As they looked back and saw Linus being hugged and kissed excitedly by his family, they turned and knew this would be a furry wonderful Thanksgiving for this family.
Moral of the story: Don't wander off because you never know how many angel bugs are going to buzz you until you can't take it anymore! MOL!
With a big lump meowmy read this, but she was smiling, too...
Thanks Alex, Tigger and Jaffa and Grub for helping so well with Linus. His pawrents had almost given up!
Now, Mom of Alex...wipe away your tears and smile with our meowmy...we love you and are sending you lots of (cyber) hugs and kitty purrs, too.
Purrs to the furmilies of the new angels and hugs to them, too.
Pipo, Momko & Meowmy
Geez! Meowmy can't even type anymore...she better go to bed, MOL! I am not Momko...
Thank you for the lovely story, Lacey! I am so happy Linus is at home safe and sound, thanks to 4 angel bugs buzzing~ no less!
MOL!!!!! Must be the lump in your meowmy's throat. It made her type funny! MOL. Don't worry, she just needed to let go of a lot of that stress. You know how that is, I guess these humans sometimes need to have an "ugly" day. But she says she'll gladly take those kitty purrs and cyber hugs! She loves them and says coming from two handsome fellas like you, she won't turn those down. Thanks guys!
Hi Momko! *TB waves*
MOL, thank you sweet Teddy Bearz! MOL, I like that. MOMKO.
Me too! Making me giggle. We need to giggle on a daily basis. IMHO!
Meowmy speaking here...cause there is no 'Momko' here...meowmy who is that anyways, a secret kitty in your closet? MOL!
I can certainly relate to how the stress builds up...and then...sproing! Some little seemingly innocent thing sets off the floodgate switch...and with me often on an unsuspecting 'victim'!
Almost happened to me at work last night...but I caught it just in time...
It is good that we can come over here and give up a lot of it to others so that they help us bear our burdens.
Hi, TB! I am still me, Minko...MOL!
you know what it sounds like? MOMKO? like one of those old tv ads where they used to sell records. Remember those? MOL! Hey, you want to laugh, head over to Finney's new diary entry about his pancake poopy gift to mom!
Pipo said he loves it when meowmy is giggling, because then he will get more playtime...sadness means that meowmy sits in her chair...and while laps are great, playing is FUN!
We understand Minko's mom! My mom is the same way!
Sproing I love that word
Sproing sproing sproing....MOL!
Thank you for sharing the story with us. I knew our purrs and prayers to the angels would not fail.
Oh I forgot about Sproing!!! Who started that? Was it the Tabbies? I think so right? LOVE that word! You know what's another good one? My meowmy made it up a couple of years ago. SPLOOBEY! I don't really know what it means and she says she forgot so if anyone has a good definition let us know.
Sploobey sounds like the yucky loose barfs meowmy found on the carpet this afternoon...and right in the line of traffic of course!
Dog guy was about to indulge himself...but meowmy was there just in time...no more sploobey gooey yucks!
Oh gag me, SPLOOBY?! loose barfs? As opposed to what? MOL Who barfed? And do not tell me, dog guy was going to eat it!!!
MOL MOL MOL!!! EEWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!
Dog guy will almost always clean up for meowmy if she dawdles in finding what we gift her with...we eat too much, start playing...and whoops, we become Mt Vesuvius! MOL!
We nevfur learn the relationship of course...then when we are done playing we need to go and eat some more.
By the way, meowmy has figutred out to nevfur give us teeny bits of cheese anymore...5 or 10 nmin later...upchuck time!
Sheesh, we have gone from crying to typos to poopies to barf! Have we covered it all now!?!
Yep, I think we covered it all! MOL
You know what? Maybe I shouldn't say this but I have never barfed in my life.Also mom always knows when she finds my poop in the box. You know why?Cause my poops do not smell!
Seriously! Now, my sister by another mother-Katerina made the stinkiest-open- all- the-windows- now-poopies!
I hope you didn't just jinx yourself Teddy B. Your poopies don't smell? WELL! I NEVER! MOL. I don't know that we've covered it all but this conversation should be moved over to Finney's diary. THAT'S the poopy diary! This was supposed to be a sweet angel story! MOL
When I arrived meowmy knew about zero about kitty care...and OMC was I a stinky kitty...like a stink bomb!
Open the windows and turn the exhaust fan on high...but soon she found out that poor food = rich stinkypoo!
She went to a high grade food and that helped a whole lot...
Now when she smells * the stink* she knows that it can only be Pipo the master leave it open to the air for all to enjoy...
Yea I am worried about jinxing myself! Sorry Lacey! You are right this is the place for the sweet angel story.
We have to go anyway,
Thanks for the smiles and giggles,
Oops! Crossed posted!
You started it by talking about sploobey!
Hee-hee...and then meowmy just took it from there...OK. we shall go to the smelly diary...MOL!
Leaves, spreading sweet eau de cologne behind...
MOL Groucho! We are certainly getting to know you better! MOL
Night Teddy B! Love you too. Glad we could have some fun tonight. yes, I guess I did sploobey the conversation, MOL
MOL! MOL! I was going to say that the story sounded like something coming from Samhain, but the comments sound like they're in Finney or Lacey's diary, that's for sure.
We saw Linus's Mom's post yesterday evening. What a relief, and what a lovely story. My only question is, why didn't the guy 3 miles up the road tell Linus's parents that he spotted a kitty that looked like Linus even before the visit?
Anyway, the ordeal is over and we are so relieved that it had a happy ending. Angel kitties, keep up the good work! Bravo--well done!
I'm so glad Linus was found!
Lacey! That is just the way it was for sure! One minute I was snacking on my fast food dinner, mouse medium rare, then these angels was buzzing all around me, making me get my little gray kitty butt movin'! Tigger, I miss you! And Jaffa and Grub, yuez guys are terrific too! High five to Alex, way to go girl! Hey, it's rainin' again here (seems to always rain), but I am dry and warm, waiting for mom to finish washin' out my bed. Somebody did a poopy in it while I was gone. Looks like some dumb buuurrrd was here.
I don't know Colette, maybe he didn't know Linus was missing?
Oh Linus, a poopy in your bed? I think it was Miranda, she was pretty ticked at you for leaving.
Sweet Lacey, thank you so much for telling this so beautifully. You made my Mum feel so proud and so much better. Big love Jaffa XXX
Oh you're so welcome Jaffa! Disregard all the poopy talk on here because that wasn't supposed ta happen. MOL. It just seems to follow us. MOL. I'm glad it helped your mommy, even just a little. Mom used to have such a hard time with Alex's passing and still does sometimes. But mostly being here now she's able to picture her doing things like this and it really does help. Big hugs to you and your family. We're so sorry you had to go.
Oh, Lacey, that's SUCH a beautiful story!! And it's true!! LOVE THAT!! Thank you, angels! Luv, Tink
Thank you Tink! I wanted everyone to know how it really happened! I can just imagine Linus' face when he had 4 angel bugs buzzing furiously around his head! MOL
MOL Lacey, no need to apologise about poopy talk, I am the proud owner of a copy of 'Poopology' X
MOL MOL MOL!!! Good then! I don't have to worry. We are world poop talk champions! MOL
And Linus better stay inside now....too much stuff out there for a kitty to have happen...thank goodness the angel kitties were around.
If he doesn't we're going back to buzz in his ear again and this time we'll nip him! MOL
this made my mommy like Niagra Falls too, reading it! What a purrrfect thing to help Linus, but we are so sad for new angels. But it is the helping paws of our furrriends that help us get up those steps, and how lucky to has Alex there as a Guardian.
this bee a trooly grate storee alex....
pawsum werk !!!
( pee ess tell yur mom ta chek finn and lacey's background coz it be gone 11/21 )
OH CACA! Stupid photobucket. Thanks Tabbies, we'll fix it later on. Kitty P. I know what you mean, everything has been tough lately but we have had some good mews with Linus being found and our friend Chiquitita's results are in and she doesn't have a tumor!!! Its just fat!!! Whoo hoo!!
That made meowmie cry because she is so happy for all the kitties!
