Wow! I don't know if I've ever been a DDP! I don't think so, I can't really remember. But thank you so much Catsters and thank you for all the prezzies and the well wishes. This is so pawsome and what's more pawsome to me is that I have so many wonderful friends here to share my special day with. That's all that's important to us and makes it all worthwhile. What fun would it be to celebrate if I didn't have all of you? It wouldn't be. And you all have made our lives not only feel warm and cherished but brought so much FUN to us, especially in times where things can be so hard. We know we can come here and laugh and talk about silly things like POOP, Newmies, flowjectiles, etc. We've become so educated in poopy terms since knowing all of you, MOL.
Apollo seems to be holding his own and of course it's due to all of you and your POTP purrs! We believe in that power 100% and have seen it work. Our cousin Midnight did some kind of crazy fast turn around about a week and a half ago and we didn't say anything because we didn't want to jinx it. It's like someone turned on a light switch! She just woke up and started eating like a hog and hasn't stopped since. Keep her in your purrs please because we all know things can change on a dime but she's filling out again and eating like a piggy. She's eating junky food but we don't care, it doesn't matter at this point. When a kitty stops eating and starts starving themselves, becomes skin and bones, feed them ANYTHING they want! No matter if it's the cheapest most yucky foods out there, the kitty's life comes first over any nutritional value. And sometimes, like now, that yucky food has some good merit to it. She's eating it like a trooper now and gaining her girlish figure back. She's stretching out again and really feeling good, purring a lot too. So thank you everyfur! See why we love you all so much?
Well, we have something we'd like to ask all of you as well. The kitty that was COTD yesterday, Marta, passed away on Feb. 16th. Her mom wrote me, she has not been able to change her page or say anything, she's just too distraught. Marta went through something very similar to me, only she developed a mass in her stomach and her mom was able to have a mobile vet go to their home. That way Marta could come to the bridge in her momma's arms.
You know this is happening A LOT! COTD, COTD, DOTD, kitties that have JUST passed. Very strange coincidences! Anyways, her momma believes as we do, that Marta is still with her and can visit her anytime, just not in physical form anymore. That's half the battle for her healing. The good news is that her momma has already opened her heart to a rescue kitty named Mitzi! Mitzi's page is not up yet but she'll do it soon. I'm so proud of her for taking the chance and knowing this is what Marta would want, for her heart to remain open and to continue to give love. I'm so happy we've made friends with her family, I think this is the beginning of a terrific friendship.
So please if you have time, visit Marta's page and drop her momma a message or something to say hi, send friend requests, open your heart to someone who obviously has a very big heart herself. We have no doubt you all will, love is what you're all about!
Thank you for my DDP! I'm so happy! We love you all BIG TIME!
Luv Alex and mom Lisa
Aww Alex, we're so happy you're DDP! Concats to you!! Sending you many purrs and head butts!
Thank you furry much BK! We love you!
Congratulations on your DDP Alex!
Hope you're having a fun day!
It's so nice when angels like you and Clawdia are honored because most of the time it seems like angels are overlooked.
And we do the same thing you do! We try to send friends requests and make new friends whenever someone we don't know receives an honor or we chat somewhere on Catster (of course sometimes we forget too - shame on us!)
Happy to learn that your cousin Midnight is eating again! And we're so glad Apollo pulled through -- we're still purring for him!
Concats Alex! we are so happy to see that you are being honored today...we hope you are having a wonderpurr day in heaven, we know your Mom is very proud of you...
We also visit Marta and asked her to be our friend and Mom wrote to her and we hope that it will help her...
Thank Queen T and Miss Mittens! It's really true, that's why I was so surprised to get a DDP today. I don't usually get that! But I'm really happy and thrilled. It's so sad about Marta, her poor momma is grieving very deeply. We're really relieved about Midnight and hopefully now she's on a good upswing for awhile.
Oh we are so relieved to hear about Midnight. Yes that is scarry when a kitty stops eating.
Will run over to Marta's page and tell her Mom how much we care. It's so hard for our humans when we have to leave. Glad that she has a Mitzi now to give her comfort.
I visited Marta's page, and we understand completely how hard it is to update the page - it is painful to see it in writing!
Glad Midnight is doing better!! Hope Apollo has many special days with his mom.
Our purrayers go out for kitties in need, including Shelly Sue and Yetti!
We're SO happy that you got a DDP!!! You should get a SPECIAL award for reaching down from Heaven and making Finney poop! Luv, Tink
Congrats beautiful angel Alex on being chosen for DDP of the day! You really did have betty davis eyes, so beautiful. Blowing big kisses up to you at Rainbow Bridge.....Love, tate
Oh thank you Tate, Mietzi and Tink! That's funny Tink. Yeah, those two need my help sometimes. I'm the one who sent them to momma but you know they are little scoundrels. MOL! Tate, I caught that kiss, it was wonderful! And you look super cute in your bunny ears. Thank you Mietzi for going to see Marta's momma. She really can use a lot of support. It was a really nice day today, thank you all.
Hi Alex, I hope you had a fun day being a DDP. Thank you for letting us know more about Marta. We're so happy that Midnight is eating and doing better. And same with Apollo. Purrs for all....
Hi Nadia, thank you, I've had a great day of celebrating with other angels here at the bridge. Let's face it, since I came up here, life is just a big pawty all the time.
I'll try and get mom to take another picture of Midnight now that she's looking better. Her little nosey is all pink again and she's so cute!
Hey congratulations my fellow angel friend! My mom was out of town and not on the computer much we almost missed your day, you are always such a caring and informative angel, you so deserve the honor. Hope you had a great day lets celebrte the evening together (head rub and wing fan)
Awwww, thanks Skids. I love the head rub and wing fan. That's pawsome! Thank you so much sweetie, I appreciate it and I appreciate your friendship.
Congrats on being a DDP!
Happy diary pick Alex!
It is nice you mention Marta; we made friends with her Mom just the other day! Marta is beautiful!
Love Elsa, xo
Wishing you a belated concatulations on your DDP yesterday! Hope your day was extra special. Thanks for the updates on Apollo and Midnight. We are still purring for both. Don't know what it is about the nasty foods that us kitties always crave when we haven't been eating!!
After this we will be heading over to Marta's page to show her poor mommy some love.
