NO WALKIN' WAGON

On Monday, December 23, these two thingies*
magically appeared on my dining room.
Of course, as with all new things, I approached with catty caution.

*Felinese for contraption


 Ummmm this thingie looks about my size ....
surely Mom doesn't THINK she is going to put me in there.

Please please let this be what I think it is......
My very own No Walkin' Wagon (exactly like
made especially for kitties with a lid so they don't jump out  
After  I gave it the Madi sniff of approval,


I asked mom to let me try it on for size to make 
sure there was plenty of room for me....

As it turns out is not a No Walkin' Wagon
for kitties, it is a Pullin' Along Wagon for Food.
Mom packed it full of lots of good food to take down
to my human Sis and BIL's house when the went to visit.
Mom made enough of everything for them to have lots 
to eat and not cook and even some for the freezer.
She wanted to be sure BIL had lots of good food to build
up his strength for all the Physical Therapy is has scheduled.

Christmas Exchange from Sasha!!


First of all I want to thank
for once again organizing a most wonderful Christmas Exchange. I've pawticipated in all 5 of them.

I was tickled pink when I found out Sweet Sasha had my 
name.  Sasha is a great shopper and knows how to pick out
the most purrfect gifts.  I think maybe Sasha has an itty bitty
smidgen of feline in her DNAs.


Oh my gosh Ms. Anne Sasha's mom wrapped each and
every item in the most beautiful crinkle paper.  


As soon as mom opened the box, I got a whiff of the best nip in the world.  I have to give them all a sniff  and then......
Eureka I found it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mom says the catnip in the Yeoww! Toys is organic
MOM step away from the counter and give me that nip sardine
This nip makes me slobber and it makes my eyes big!!!
So here is the loot and Ms. Anne even
sent my mom some dark chocolate peppermint patties
they make Mom's eyes big and make her slobber too

As you will see in this short video I made,
sure the candy cane nip knew just who was boss
ME



Nite-nite


Now mom needs to add Sasha's card to my card door!!

Puddles:   Drinks.    Looks like she will have some help from Madi and her nip-a-tini bar and Ruby offered to mix up some cocktails.  There will be potent and also non-alcoholic drinks all available.

This Moment, See Beautiful

These pictures were taken in Mid November
at the mall where my peeps walk every morning.
Mom's intent was to use them for December's 
This Moment, See Beautiful
This moment is especially beautiful because we
are going to write about many special Moments
we have experienced since November 24, 2013
when my sweet BIL had the stroke. 


First of all we thank you all for all the moments
you took to ask about him and offer encouragement.

One call we never expected to receive was the one telling us our very healthy and active son in law had a stroke. He had no 
health problems to cause a stroke.

After receiving the call from my human sissy, mom and dad
headed to Greenville, NC where my sis and BIL were.
The first moments after they arrived were very scary
BIL was gravely ill and my beautiful sissy was so sad.


My peeps immediately put on their Parent Hats
trying to do what they could to ease my sissy's heart
and let my BIL know they were there to help

The moment they saw BIL open is eyes they could tell
he was very sick but they could all  see they 
determination in his eyes. 
Mom and Dad went down without extra clothes.  They did not 
have time to find a cat sitter so Dad decided to come back
home to look after me....he is sweet like that.
When Mom and my sissy left the hospital on Sunday night,
they went to 24 hour Walmart to buy mom some
PJs, toothbrush etc.  I won't even tell you about Mom
and my sissy trying to pick out an electric shaver for
BIL.


 It was late so they did it in a hurry
Now I wish I had been there the moment Mom
realized exactly what kind of PJs she bought....
yep she just looked at the size and did not notice
they were DUCK DYNASTY PJs.  Mom doesn't 
watch Duck Dynasty so she doesn't know names but
let me just say when she realized a picture of the old man with the

 do-rag and bushy beard was on the front of her PJs
it was a pretty FUNNY moment.  She and Sissy had 
their first laugh of a very long day.


That is about all  of the back story before Mom started posting some updates on the daily progress of BIL getting the feeling back
and of the scary stent operation

Now for This Moment, See Beautiful
BIL has been making superb progress in Rehab.
So well, in fact, yesterday Mom received the best news in the world from my sissy.  BIL is going to be released from Greenville
Rehab on Thursday, 12/19/13 to go home.  We are positive being home will have him doing a dance in no time.
He will have outpatient Rehab 3 days a week at his local hospital.


Vidant Medical Center and Rehab, in Greenville, NC is a state of the art medical center and teaching hospital.  It is affiliate with East Carolina Medial School.  Every single person who has helped BIL
has been superb at their chosen profession.
So even though we had rather not have had this experience we must say at
This Moment, (we) See Beautiful
and we are thankful.
