MOM!!! We think Angel is stuck in this bag!

To show our appreciation to those who have contributed to the Laila vet bill fund, we thought it would be fun if we put all the names in a bowl and picked one. The winner will get these two items specially hand picked by us in the box Mom keeps under the bed for future gift givings. Both are brand new and never used. Oh, and we will make sure some kitty treats get snuck in the box too.


We will have the drawing on Sunday, October 11 and the winner will be posted Monday, October 12.

This is where I'll be catching some snoozin' time this lazy Sunday. Laila has been such a blog-hog this week with her toofie drama I insisted Mom put just me on the post today.

We are so overwhelmed by the response to help out with Laila's vet bill! Thanks to all who have so generously helped out! It warms our heart to know what wonderful friends we have out there in the blogging world.

Saturday Surprise!

Laila couldn't believe her eyes when Mom showed her the V-E-T bills for her dental surgery, tooth cleaning and pre-op blood work. $575.00! Since Mom lost her day hunting jobbie the end of July with no new prospects in sight, she has put a PayPal button on the top of our side bar on the right for anyone who might like to donate to the fund for my bill. We know first hand in this economy nowadays how hard it is for a lot of people, but if you would like to help out that would be great, no matter how small. Any green papers donated in excess of the bill will be sent to the Cat Blogosphere for another kitty in need of help. And no problem at all if you can't. We are just so thankful for everyone's support and words of encouragement while I had the surgery and during my recovery.

I am doing great and my gums look great too. We are hoping and purraying that the home preventative care I'll be receiving daily helps in the future.

After a good brushing Laila and Angel are very relaxed.

We also want to say a very special "HI!" to our new furrend, Kiddy, who is a recently adopted 8 year old from a shelter. We think it's so nice that her Mom adopted an older kitty. It's so hard for the older ones to get adopted in the middle of kitten season. So, Kudos to Mom Marlene!!!

I am thankful Mom took me to the V-E-T Tuesday to get rid of those yucky ol' toofies so that my mouth can be better. She has also weaned me off the pain drugs as yesterday for most of the day I didn't leave the litter boxes. Sometimes I would just sit there in the dark staring into them. It was spooking her a little bit.

Boy, it sure is good to be back home! They stole two premolars, one molar and a lower incisor! But it will make my mouth feel much betters! Thanks Dr. Jen and everyone for taking such good care of me! They say I may have stomatitis gingivitis. They don't really know what causes it so they will be keeping an eye on the situation.

As soon as I got home Mom fixed me a little stinky goodness and I gobbled it up right away plus some hard foods which I just swallowed whole. I am on auntie-biotiks for a week, have some awesome pain meds that Mom squirts on my gums twice a day and the oral rinse that I will do my whole life. Mom can't believe how well I bounced back from the surgery. I was acting pretty normal all night, even had a rasselling match with Minchie, which I won, naturally!

Thank you to everyone for all their purrayers and support! We don't know what we would do without all of you and your friendships! You are the bestest!

The vet just called. Laila is out of surgery and doing fine so Mom can pick her up anytime after 3pm. She had 4 rotten teeth pulled! Holy Moly! We needs to find out what to do to help her teeth in the future. We can't wait until she's home because Mom is just moping around missing her little girl. Really, we are too!

Well, it was a real battle between me and Mom yesterday getting me into the carrier but Mom's will won and off we went to the V-E-T. Well, some of the bottom teeth on the bottom in front are missing, one is sticking up and needs to be pulled and another one on the side needs to be pulled. The doctor was concerned that I was too young to have such issues and thought possibly I could be FIV+. Even though I tested negative at 6 weeks, it could have been a false negative. Well, Mom's heart sank as she had a kitty with FIV and knows all about it. They ran an in house blood test and good news...it was negative! Mom was so relieved!!! I'm on aunty-biotiks and will be having my teeth cleaned and a few pulled on this coming Monday. Mom is very nervous about this not having a job and all and how she's gonna come up with the green papers to pay for this, but she said no matter what it cost, she would get my mouth back in good shape.

Mom says I have to go see the V-E-T today to have my bottom right canine and the tooth to the left looked at as the gum is looking purty nasty. Hopefully it will be that I just need those aunty-biotiks to make it betters. She thinks she can bribe me with real Kitty Kaviar (my favorite!) to get me in the PTU. Hahaha! We'll see who has the last laugh on this one!

Also, Mom was suppose to leave early this morning for a three day trip to Iowa but it got cancelled at the last minute so she won't be abandoning us. Yay! Angel's Mommie was gonna come live with us and is very disappointed she can't now.

We are plum tuckered out from our overnight company Friday night! We had so much fun but the beans stayed up until 2:00am and had to be up early. Mom was wide awake and only got 2 hours of sleep! When she got home at 4:30pm yesterday she fell asleep in the recliner for 3 hours, woke up and had something to eat, then slept another 10 hours. Now she knows what a cat's life is like!

We are having two of Mom's friends stay the weekend with us because they are all going to a big scrapbooking event they call Croptoberfest. She has the car loaded with all her "cropping crap". She'll be lucky if she gets one page done because she spends way too much time socializing at these events. Poor Laila doesn't do well with company so she will be running from under the bed to under the couch when they are actually here.



and then there was a second grader in our home....

I just can not believe it is almost fall....geez fall is here...almost...my favorite season of the year!! So I am loosing it AGAIN. Trying to do too much feeling like I am getting nothing done...running on empty and pushing myself up each hill...giving it all I got! phew......
Memphis started 2nd grade yesterday!!! 2nd Grade!!! She is so amazing. I adore every single inch of that kid. She loves school and this year is extra special. She got to be in the same teacher's class. They have a looping program at her school...one year the teacher teaches 1st and the next 2nd. It is sooooooooooo amazing, especially for shy kids that get really really really nervous with change. It is going to change her life. I am serious. She will gain SOOOOO much confidence from this year I might not even recognize her come summer time...because she won't have to spend 1/2 the year getting to know her teacher and gaining courage to be herself. So I am just so so so grateful and happy that I can't stop smiling. I am however one of THOSE Ma's that gets emotional at the start and end of every school year. It stirs things inside me that I can not explain. I am just so darn proud of her that I feel like I am about to burst. She is already so so so much calmer and happier and adjusted. It's amazing. I am just so proud. She is still wearing her capes to school and I have managed to make a few new ones...need to make more. She is coming into her own sense of style and even picked out her own back pack this year. If you knew my daughter you would understand what that means. She is starting to make choices on her own. She is a true Virgo and just had a Birthday. This year we kept it simple and just took a couple of her friends to the Science Center. It was great and her brother was so excited. All the girls fawned over him and he loved it. Anywho...life is looking up and I for one am so glad...
the house hunt continues but I can tell....it's going to be a LONG bumpy ride. Happy Thursday!

Thankful Thursday

Angel is thankful that one of his Mom's friends gave her these steps to make it easier for him to get up on the bed. Now that he has learned how to go up and down them, he sleeps with Mom every night. Laila gets very jealous at times. I (Minchie) am more than able bodied to jump up on my own, but love going up and down them too. If and when Angel ever goes home (Mom doesn't want him to!) I am hoping she'll buy some stairs for me.

This one's for you

Angel seems to like this spot in the kitchen when Mom is in there. Rather than disturb him, she just steps around and over him while she's working in there.

Hope everyone is having a safe, fun and relaxing Labor Day!

We went to Portland last weekend to visit our friends Kim and Robby, our kids god parents. They are the folks we choose to take care of our kids if anything should happen to us. They are very similar to us but very different as well and that's a good thing. They are more mellow than Jason and I, we tend to be a bit....just a bit...A-type and Kim and Robby are more relaxed and easy going. We had a lot of fun and Robby and Kim watched the kids for us one of the nights while we went out. Geez...that was super amazing. After we arrived we had an amazing pasta dinner, the kids fav, and then headed across the street to a park. The kids loved it and so did I. We put the kids to bed and stayed up chatting... Saturday we spent the morning all together, then Robby and Kim took Memphis to the OMSI and she loved it!!! That stuff is totally her. She loves space and science and loved the Planetarium so much even if it did put Kim and Robby to sleep...Robby literally fell asleep I hear. So Jason, Soren and I went to heaven...I mean Fabric Depot and I just kept saying....this is amazing...this is so great...I am so overwhelmed right now. While Jason pushed Soren thru all the isles in the stroller to keep him amused and when that stopped working we let him loose and with many giants smiles he went running and running and running. Man that boy can move. So Jason and I got some exercise too. They were also having a BIG sale...so how could I resist? Then we went to find our friends Sam and Greg but they were not home...so off we went to the nearest park, Laurelhurst Park to be exact.... so Mr. Soren could let loose and go nutso....and he did. Then we went back to meet up at their house and we got ready to go out to dinner with Ashley and Drew....so so so so so great. They could not have been any nicer and as it turns out Ashley and I have a lot more in common than I ever could have imagined. She is even cooler, sweeter, funnier and more gorgeous in person and Drew was fantastic too. What a treat....and they did treat us to dinner at the Delta Cafe. What a cool place that was!! I however made a big Vegetarian boo boo and did not ask if the dish I ordered was completely vegetarian. oooops....so on about my 12th bite I looked down and saw what I thought was bacon...so I quietly stopped eating it and ate my salad. I did not eat a piece of bacon but of course the juices from the bacon were consumed with my 12 or so bites of rice and beans. OOPS...normally I would have said something but both Drew and Ashley are veggies too and I had just met them for the very first time. I did not want to look like a big dork so I just played it all cool. I mean I have NEVER had that happen and I have been a complete veggie since 1986. Actually it's okay...I mean stuff happens and after a little bit of horror I was over it. I never said a word too...which for me was the hardest part of all. Anywho...then we were off to have a drink with our friends Sam and Greg. It was great to see them. I used to work with Sam here in Seattle and I adore her. They were so fun and it felt so extravagant getting to be so very very social. I mean geez...we were really out on the town. We got back to Kim and Robby's around 11pm and chatted for a bit and then the next morning Kim and I went and got pedicures....
So besides the 4 1/2 hour drive each way (should have been 3) with a 1 year old...and a lap top that played Sesame Street so Soren would not screech...it was really fun. I really like Portland a lot and hope we get to get down more often.
Phew...anywho..must run and prepare lunch and then when Soren wakes up we are off on errands for a special soon to be 8 years old girl of mine's birthday!!!
Happy happy Friday all!!!!
Did I tell you we have a brand new toilet? Well we do and it's so fast and amazing. Man what a difference a new toilet can make in your life....who would've thought?
Still house hunting...still have an offer we are waiting to hear about...still really really hard...fingers crossed something will happen and our offer will be accepted. :)
