Happy New Year 2014!

We have a really good reason to be happy this new year and we all say "Thank you Lord!"

My woofie Sushi was very sick for about a squillion years and we were all very concerned about her. (Mom just told me it was more like 4 days but what does she know?) Anyway Sushi stopped eating anything and would not even sniff at her favorite treats. Then she could not jump up onto the couch or the bed. Then she started drinking a lot of water and then she started throwing up all over the house (Mom and my Daddy spent a lot of time cleaning up after her) and doing a lot of what Mom told me is called whimpering. Then she made a nest in the leaves in the back yard and would not come in the house even when it was very cold so Mom had to carry her in. Then Mom and my Daddy talked about how these were the same symptoms my woofie Zeke had before he had to leave us early last year and Mom had a very hard time to keep from crying.

So on Monday Sushi ate a little bit of my woofie Marco's breakfast and wagged her tail and followed Mom around the house a little bit before she took a long nap on her bed in the living room. On Tuesday she ate all of Marco's breakfast (she would not eat out of her own bowl so Marco ate Sushi's breakfast) and took a walk around the park with my Daddy. Then she ate most of her dinner out of her own bowl and even ate a treat. Then last night she was able to jump up on the couch and the bed all by herself.

And today Sushi is almost all the way back to being her old happy and active self. She even yodeled at our neighbor from our back yard!

So we all hope that your New Year has started as well as ours has! And we hope that you have a very wonderful 2014!

Veteran's Day 2013

“The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave.”
 —Patrick Henry
Our thanks go out to all of you who have been vigilant, active and brave for your willingness to put your lives on the line to protect the freedoms so many of us take for granted.

It's Constitution Day in the U.S.A.

"Constitution Day commemorates the formation and signing of the U.S. Constitution by thirty-nine brave men on September 17, 1787, recognizing all who, are born in the U.S. or by naturalization, have become citizens." (from Constitution Day). There is a lot of good information at this site.

Catch Up Day

It is Labor Day in the US but I am pretty sure there will be very little labor happening at my house. Mom will do some laundry so she has clean clothes to wear to her day hunting place but that is about it. I hope Mom and my Daddy do not think putting stinky goodness into my bowl several times counts as labor! They plan to cook burgers on the grill so I am fairly sure that means they do not mind fixing food. Mom did put some in my bowl two times this morning. Maybe I will not starve today after all.

Yesterday was Mom and my Daddy's wedding anniversary. I think they started celebrating Labor Day early because they both just relaxed almost all day. Mom said they celebrated their anniversary when they were in Albuquerque early last week. They went to a restaurant called Hayashi for dinner. Mom had filet mignon and my Daddy had sushi. Neither one of them brought anything home for me.

This morning my annoying woofie Marco Polo found a scorpion on the livingroom floor. My Daddy took care of it and then gave Marco a treat. Mom gave him a good snuggle and thanked him for not letting her step on the scorpion (she really hates wearing shoes in the house). Mom also said that she will get around to posting pictures of the little annoyance woofie someday.

My other woofie Sushi has not been feeling very good for a couple of days. I think she feels a little better now because she ate all of her breakfast this morning. She has not started running and playing again yet though.

There are a lot of other things happening here in Roswell but most of them would bore you. So I will just say:

Have a relaxing day!

RIP Skeezix

Skeezix was one of the first cats we met on the Cat Blogosphere. He was always cheerful and fashionable and very funny. He made us laugh and think and he led us into many wonderful adventures.

Skeezix had to leave Mr. Tasty Face and the Food Lady a few days ago. Many eyes have been leaking a lot since we learned this sad news.
 Jeter Harris, Cheysuli, and others have set up a Donation Page for anyone who wants to help Skeezix' family make a lump sum memorial donation to the shelter charity of their choice.

We will miss you, Skeezix.
