Mom forgot my Birthday!

Can you believe it? She owes me big time! Mom forgot my birthday! She peeked on Catster from work today and that is how she found out. I expect presents and a dinner this weekend to make up for the fact that she is clueless!

In all fairness, she hasn't been around much. Our Grammy took that stroke and then went to a rehab center and then with 14 hours went to the hospital with an infection. She is still in the hospital. Mom was going every day to see her. She was moved from the hospital that was an hour away to one that is 30 minutes away. So at least she is a little closer. Grammy is moving her arms and legs pretty well and her speech is coming back. She does have some cognitive challenges and still has a feeding tube. We hope that the infections clear up and she can start getting more therapy. Hint to Mom- when you go visit Grammy, stop at Petco and get some stuff for my birthday - it is right up the highway!

We are so sorry that we missed so much fun lately. Zach has been Cat of the Week for two weeks and we didn't really get to celebrate with him. They say absence makes that heart grow fonder, but I know how he is, with all his lovelies, I don't want him to forget all about me.

I know the Sring Tag is making its rounds. Skylar and Ivan have been tagged and will try to do diary entries to play along. I thought I might want to answer too. Here are some things I like about the Spring...

1. Spring means it is time for my birthday!
2. Spring means Mom wont throw snowballs at the window and startle me. (that is a whole other story for another diary entry)
3. Spring means Mom will wash our bedding and hang it outside, I love how it smells when it comes back in. Better than when it comes out of the dryer.
4. Spring is the time when love is in the air. There is just so much romance going on. I saw the rabbits chasing one another and the doves pairing off and those robins were getting pretty feisty with one another.

I guess that is it for now. Thanks so much for my birthday presents and well wishes. And thanks for remining Mom about my birthday, she would have forgotten otherwise. Thank you for your purrs for Grammy too. We know that is what got her this far.

Love, Skit

You've got me rolling! The snowball part was Hallarious. I can just see the expression on that pretty face of yours. How mean of Mommy and I'm waiting for the diary.

Glad your grandma is coming around. We purr that the infection goes away so she can go back to rehab and get her life back.

Oh and sweetie, I could never ever forget about you. Smarter of fact I've miss you like crazy!

We are purring and pawyering that your Grammy gets well and that nasty infection goes away.

Under the circumstances, you should probably cut your mom some slack....worrying about moms take a lot of attention. I do think it's fair that you gave her the Petco hint though, hopefully she takes it!

As far as the Zachy boy is concerned...or excuse me, as far as WHO'S YOUR DADDY is concerned, us girlies gave him a bit of a hard time, so we tried to keep him just a little bit in line--we've got your back. MOL! When you read those diaries you'll see you weren't forgotten!

Your mom throws snowballs at you?!?! Sounds like something my mom would do--humph!

Happy Birthday Skittles! I hope you get some pretty good treats and toys this weekend! I'm also purring fur your Grammy. Your mom also, worrying and looking after her. Sometimes our mom's have too many things on their plates, and can't remember everything. Mine can relate with this! I'm sure she'll make it up to you!
