Hello all my fellow Catster poopyheads! MOL! Got your attention? Good! Just kidding anyways but I thought it was cute because we're always talking about poop. So I have been enjoying my week as COTW for sure! Gosh we can hardly keep up with all the pawmails, emails, prezzies, well wishes, etc. It's so wonderful mainly because we're seeing so many of our furriends we haven't seen in a long, long time.
This week has been a mix of emotions for us as many of you know and even though momma is still having occasional moments of sadness at the loss of her uncle, mostly she's tired and just wants to laugh and have fun. Her uncle was one of the most kind and gentle souls she's ever known and we know for a fact he's flying all over the clouds with his daddy, my mommy's grandad who came to get him and bring him to heaven. He dreamed it a couple of nights before he died! He's doing things now he wasn't able to do for so many years, he's free. And he would NOT want mommy or grammy, grampy, his wife and kids to be crying over him all the time. He lived 20 years more than they thought he would and that was a huge gift to everyone!
Mom's shot yesterday went well except for the fact that the shot took 15 minutes and they were there for 3 HOURS! Not cool! Anyways, mom is definitely feeling better. It can take anywhere from 3-5 days for the full affects of it but sometimes longer. She started feeling it immediately which is SUCH a good sign. Everything up until now has not worked so cross your paws this does!
On that note, let's get back to MMMMEEEE!!! MOL! Just kidding. But I would like everyone to continue to help us celebrate because it's been a BIG honor for me. So let's enjoy ourselves and each other and maybe a bunch of us angels can get together and dance on some clouds! We'll enjoy some catinis, and yes of course trout!!! MOL. Don't forget trout or the Tabbies will send someone to kick our angel bums. We can have some good food, play some games, do some dancing, etc. Which reminds me I need to put my music player back up on my page.
Here's another of mom's poems to inspire you!
Rope The Stars
Rope the stars
And ride the sky
Take them far
And take them high
Make a difference
Make your mark
You should know
You're not alone in the dark
Explore new horizons
Sail around the land
Make your dreams come true
No matter how grand
Open up the heavens
Dance in the rain
Cherish the good times
Not suffering and pain
Be happy, be proud
Be free and be loud
Just don't be anything else
But completely yourself
Congrats Cat and Good tidings fur Mom! Our Pop has some hooman medical stuff so we know how good our purrs are.
Happy "Cat of the Week" week to you. Keep on celebrating. Dance, sing, recite poetry, go out with friends, have a ball, chase bunnies and butterflies. I’m running some zoomies in your honor. We love you dear, sweet Alex. You deserve this sooooo much.
We are so sorry about your Mom’s uncle who had been so sick. Purrs and hugs to your Mommy. Like you said, we have this hope that he is now free of pain and is in heaven running and jumping and playing. Yup, grown-ups play too, ha ha.
We love your Mom’s poem. That is really cool. Did you inspire her to write that?
We also wanted to point to our friend Jesus again. Mom wouldn’t know what she would have done without him several years ago, when her husband left her and she didn’t know anybody here in the USA. I know we annoy some people with this Jesus stuff but to Mom He is real and you can always count on Him. He’ll never leave you. When you’re at the end of your rope and don’t know what to do, you can give it all to Him and tell Him: Jesus, I don’t know what to do. You do it for me. He will. You can trust Him.
Back to YOU. We’re glad that the shot worked for your Mom. My Mom’s boss had the same thing (spurs) and physical therapy has really helped her. You and Finney and Lacey just keep taking good care of your Mom. And we’re purring that she can draw strength from her family and friends.
Love ya all,
Mietzi, Timo, guest cat and Mom Sonja
Hi Timmy! Hi Mietzi, Timo, guest cat and Sonja! MOL. Well Mietzi, I'm glad your mom found something to help her through everything she did go through. That's the important thing! Is that she's got faith in SOMETHING or SOMEONE! And we do also believe strongly that grown ups play the first thing when they are rested after leaving this world! They make up for lost youth that way. Mom's uncle Ray sure has a lot of playing to make up for. Mom is picturing him having a great time up there!
Thanks for this fun stuff...this reminded meowmy of a saying of her mom...
Angels dancing and peeing over my tongue...(MOL,MOL) no kidding, she said that, about yummy food, mostly desserts that were extremely delish!
There, now your mom has something else to giggle about!
And kicking angel bums really made our meowmy giggle out loud! Didn't think that could be done at the RB.
Mietzi and Sonja...Thanks for saying those things. Very true.
Too bad we don't turn stuff over to God right away, we try to fix things in our inept human ways...doesn't work very well...
Bye! Meowmy is off to bed...make sure you keep the pawrty noises to a dull roar, OK?
Glad you mom is feeling better!
I brought some trout so can I have a dance, pretty lady?
Dude kitty won't kick our bums though, only if there is c.h.i.c.k.e.n. around! MOL
SO happeee that your mom is doing better.

Hi guys! We're joining in to here. Mom was just playing some MJ and we were all dancing and running around and meowing to the song. Not mom, no meowing from mom although that would be funny! MOL. Here's what song we were dancing to:
Leave Me Alone
Oh caca! I don't want to spoil the pawty but Pounce didn't make it. She's here at the bridge with me now. Please stop by her diary and let her momma know we love her. Then come back and pawty here with us in Pounce's honor! Oh caca! I don't want to spoil the pawty but Pounce didn't make it. She's here at the bridge with me now. Please stop by her diary and let her momma know we love her. Then come back and pawty here with us in Pounce's honor!
Thought we would join in the fun! There's about 6 of us and we love to party. You know us we are Zach and Zoe's fam on the bridge. Tux said he would be here later with Essie (Sleeper and Samhain's bridge doggie)
Hurrayyy!! Company! Jeez it's so boring around here today. SHEESH! We need some action!
Yeah, Mom noticed.
MOM- Been busy cleaning out our junky closet today, bagged up a lot of clothes for Good Will too.
that's cool. Mom's been working on the website. Did all kinds of stuff to it today. Plus the newsletter.
Seen the newsletter.
I think it's funny that sweet angel girl Alex says 'caca'! MOL!
Just stopping by to say hi!
We think you're always Cat of the Week. But then, of course, you know that.
LOLOL, glad I could make you laugh Gumpy! Occasionally I am devilish! Thank you sweet Natalie girl. We love you.
Did somebody say devilish?
Awwwwww, look at the baby Zachy!
Mom is going to upload three more pics plus two more goofy pics sometime today. Mom said the pic of me laying in the gift wrapping box when I was a kit is in the camper or she would upload it too.
Here is some cat art which I think you may appreciate.
Kittens on the covers of famous albums. My favourite is the Kiss one :) hope this makes you smile :)
MOL Shadow that was cute! Thank you.
Glad to hear that the shot worked so quickly....Wow.....Now to get back to Alex. He must be flying high with such honors the past week...Congrats again.....
I love your poem....Thanks for sharing...
Mom isn't 100% Natasha, she's still got to get back to trying to stretch and get some kind of therapy in. Her leg is still bothering her, not as bad but she's still hurting so we'll see. Her follow up is not until Dec. 5.
Glad to hear that your Mom feels better. Hope the shot does the trick for her.
My Mommie has a terrible back problem. She even had surgery last winter. The doctor told her that the surgery would hopefully improve the pain, but not remove it, because of her type of back problem. Well, it is a little better, but it still gives her lots of pain, especially down her left leg. She is having a shot tomorrow (she has had several) in order to quiet it down a little. Mommie is a physical therapist, and she says for your Mom to do what they tell her to do. If it wasn't for doing her back exercises and being careful how she uses her back, she probably would have been disabled a long time ago. (Mommie has scoliosis, spinal stenosis and degenerative discs: her back is yucky!)
Meanwhile, be a good nurse-kittie for your Mom. Watch over her and make sure she takes care of herself!! Love, Bella
Oh Bella! We didn't realize your mommy had such awful back problems. That makes it even more special that she went out of her way to help Ingen the way she did. Mom is doing okay. She's still having pain down her left leg as well. Kind of ticking her off, MOL. She's not doing anything at all that she's not supposed to, don't worry. She's being good! Her follow up appointment with her ortho is on Dec. 5th so we'll see if she needs another shot. Give your mommy big hugs and kisses for us and tell her we appreciate her advice and caring about my mom!
