I'M CAT OF THE DAY! I just found out now at 6:04 central daylight savings time. Wow, I'm speechless. Thank you for all the gifties and emails and comments. I LOVE MY FRIENDS.
I'll write more later and tell you what the nightmare was.
*** U P D A T E ***
When Mom got home from work she found out that I'm COD. I was so excited. I've never been COD before. What I didn't know at that time yet, was that a very dear friend had made her journey to the Bridge today. Miss Hazel Lucy is the sweetest Angel ever at the Bridge. We are so sad. Mom can't stop crying. We love Hazel Lucy so much. We'll love her until we see her again.
I wrote my original diary title when Mom came home: Cat of the Day and a nightmare. I didn't know about HL when I wrote that title. That is a nightmare indeed. It seems unreal that sweet Hazel is not here any more.
I was going to tell you about a different nightmare. Mom had one last night. She dreamt that she gave me away to the Shelter! In her dream she just couldn't deal with having us cats any more. Then a day later she realized what she had done and was afraid the shelter might send me to the Bridge. And she desperately wanted me back. She couldn't believe that she had given me away because she loves, loves, loves me and missed me terribly. So she was gonna go, no RUN, to the shelter to get me back. And that's when she woke up. She was SO glad to see me and I got kisses and hugs and cuddles. Mom would NEVER give me away. Don't know where that silly dream came from.
Mom is still crying, so I better stop now. Enjoy each day with your family. Love each other. Forgive each other.
We will say a prayer for Hazel Lucy and her Mom tonight.
Concats TK, sorry we didn't say that sooner. we've all been in a daze today. Grieving our beautiful Hazel Lucy. We hope you at least enjoy your honor!
What? Oh my god, oh my god, oh no. I didn't know. Poor Hazel and her Mom must be so sad. My Mom is crying right now.
Oh Timothy! I'm so very sorry I said it to you like that. I thought you knew sweetheart! It's been all over Catster today and everyone has been writing about this so I just assumed. Oh no. I'm so sorry, please forgive me?!!! this has not been a good day at all, Marrakech passed 1 hour after Hazel did. This whole week has just been downright awful! So sorry Timothy! We love you sweetie.
Timo, it was great to see you as Cat of the Day this morning before Mom left for work. When she got home from work, she heard about Hazel Lucy. It is a sad day indeed. These sad times tend to pull us together and make us appreciate what we have even more. We appreciate you and Mietzi and love that you received this special honor as Cat of the Day.
Lacey - I am glad that you told me so that we could express our condolences to her Mom. Of course I forgive you, pretty Lacey. This has just been a bad week for Mom too, workwise. I TOLD Mom to check Catster each morning, it's important.
Oh thank you Luke.
You guys are both good friends.
I'll save that front page for you, Timo!
Thanks Samoa. There is no hurry.
Hi Timo, you don't know me- My name is Toki. I just wanted to say congrats for being Cat of the Day, because I know that you are sad like the rest of us, and couldn't enjoy your honor. I know your mom is giving you extra hugs because she is sad. I hope you both can feel my little paw patting you and can hear my purr.
nice to meet you. That was quite the rollercoaster ride yesterday. One minute happy about COD, next minute so sad about Hazel. I did get to go outside yesterday for a bit when Mom came home, because it was in the 60s. And I'm a good boy and never run away when outside. So that was nice.
Thanks for thinking about us. Yes, we can feel the love.
Don't cry Timo. Momcat had the same dream awhile ago about me. And she always jokes with the shelter about bringing me back. She thinks she's soo funny - clearly not.
