We really have not been on Catster too much - things have been insane around here. Mom has been working so much, and with trying to re-arrange a bunch for our human sister to come home, and then throw all the holiday prep in there - well all of you are just as hectic I'm sure.
We just wanted to take this few minutes to wish you a lovely Holiday season whatever you may celebrate, and a Healthy,Prosperous New Year to everyone. Hopefully after the holidays, things should start to settle down. Our human girl will be home, and then Momma has to start preparing for our human brother getting married. To Momma he is still her baby boy, and will always be, but he is 26 - so he isn't that little... Our girl should be home tomorrow. She took 10 days to drive back from Seattle, visiting the Grand Canyon, Vegas, a cousin in Texas, and a stop New Orleans. (which she says is SO AWESOME she thought she would explode!) A cathartic journey to help heal from the heartache of recent events. Momma is glad that she will be home, and close by again. Now she just needs to start the job search all over again. Also Felix will be going in for full xrays - he is just not any better, and a 1 year old kitty should not spend his days just laying on a bed or on the cat-tree looking out the window. He must be in pain, so the vet will be checking all his bones & conferring with another orthopedic specialist to see if they can do anything for him. Momma just wants him to be able to run around like the 3 of us all do - he deserves it. So we will keep you posted on all that business. Thank goodness for Care Credit & insurance, otherwise this would be impossible.
Oh something horrible that happened - on Thanksgiving, The Dad was outside getting ready to fry a turkey (he has done this for years...mmmm) a few doors down, they have a little black & white shitzu type dog - very yappy but whatever. All of a sudden, The Dad hears a loud yelp & a lady screaming - the big pitbull a few doors down on the other side of us was in their yard & had grabbed the little dog by the neck. The man there was kicking the dog to drop his dog. Well, we have not seen that little dog since, so it probably either was killed, or had to be put down from injuries. We also have not heard the other dog barking in his yard. The people would chain him outside all the time, and he would bark non-stop & then get loose and go after people. So it was terrible on so many accounts. The pit could have been a nice doggie if trained properly & kept in his yard, and the little dog would be safe. That is why Momma ALWAYS keeps our gates closed no matter what even though I am out on a leash, she worried what could happen if he got into our yard. Shudder.....
Also, please watch where you place a burning candle. Momma did not know this, but Nana had a candle on her dresser, and I decided to jump up there to see if she had anything good to sniff at, and got too close & singed a few whiskers. Nana felt so bad, but now when she burns it, she will close her door. That is why Momma only has one in a spot where we cannot jump. So be careful out there! I was lucky, I only have a couple of crispy whiskers, and learned my lesson, but somecat could get hurt. I sure hope Santa will still bring me something.....I try to be good, I really do, but Tiggers is just so bouncy....
So, we thank everyone for any wishes,, and send our best to anyone we have missed for bdays or gotchas or even get wells - but we really will be back soon, Momma misses everyone very much.
Peace, Love & Joy to all purrs from Tig, Maizy, Smitty & Felix

Poor Felix! I hope he'll be OK. We're sorry about what happened to the little doggie. People need to take care of their animals. Your human family are such good people you deserve some happiness.
You have a very busy mom Tig. We send Felix healing purrs and hope he will be well.
Happy holidays to you!
Hi Tig so good to hear from you, we sure hope Felix will be Ok, we will be purring and praying for him to be well and feel better.
Oh Tig so glad you didn't get any closer to that candle...Mom doesn't light candles anymore because of us.
wishing you all Happy Holidays too, with love from all of us...and a special kiss for my Maizy...we miss you all but understand because our Mom is busy too...getting things ready for our big move in april/May....
Kisses and hugs to you all
Zeke and family
One of our dogs was attacked by a neighbor's pit bull when she was out in our front yard on her leash. My daddy kicked the pit off in time and she was ok, but it was very scary.
