Mamanyt1953 Mamanyt1953 Any chance to let Scamper be shut in the bathroom?
That would work, if Hekitty could not open every door in the house! Thank goodness for the dead bolts on the front and back doors! And she knows what to do with those, but they're a bit stiff for her paws to manage!

Have a candle lit for your dad. You know how to reach me if you need me in the deep-darks of the night.

have trouble opening the dented cans and since I open huge numbers per day, it takes a toll.
I have no choice, even the ones at Walmart are dented. Dad thinks they are using a thinner metal for the cans that dents more easily. 🙄

Your Dad is nosey?:lol: I like that. He is interested.
Oh, he's always asking questions about you. Careful, he might propose....🤣

Metaphor or simile?
As long as there is a good life lesson in there, either one will do. 😉

A smile? Another kind of heater.
Yowza, Mack's a big boy! I like him. :catlove:

My Dad is still very sick and my Step Mom is waiting for a surgeon to be available.
Awww man, hang in there & prayers already sent up! 65 new cases today in my county! Hope they get that vaccine to us soon. 😲

BellaGooch BellaGooch That is so sweet! Thank you. I will. Right now I am just so tired.....a lot going on.:heartshape:

Mamanyt1953 Mamanyt1953 Hekitty is so smart. Opening doors!:lol: She and Lady have that in common. I have slide bolts on the door with a hook latch through one end. Deadbolts too. If they ever learn the code for the alarms, I’m in trouble. I have noticed Banjo watching when I punch in the code. Uh oh.

Thank you! I may be up in the dark. Hoping to get some early rest tonight though. Big day tomorrow.:heartshape:

maggiedemi maggiedemi The kitties are always giving me life lessons. They are all very wise.
Tell your Dad I said hello. It’s sweet that he asks about your friends. He probably wants to make sure I am a good friend. Hopefully he approves.
Mackie is a very big boy but he isn’t the biggest. He does own everything though.( According to him.) I know you would love him because he loves to be in a lap! Big snuggles!

Thank you for the prayers for my Dad. More please.

My Dad is still unwell but I got to speak to him on the phone for a minute this evening. It was very good to hear his voice. My step mom had surgery tonight and got through it. They were able to FaceTime each other just before the surgery. Other family members are hanging in there. Thank you to everyone for all the kind thoughts, good wishes, hopes and prayers. Much, much appreciated by us all. I did tell my Dad that everyone here has been asking. Strength in numbers.:grouphug2:

How do kitties always know when a vet visit is scheduled? Read the cat face! It speaks volumes!


Come in the living room with me Smokey?

Okay. So what do you want Mom?

You need to give me treats!

Where are the treats?

I have a feeling I should sit her and make biscuits.

I am beautiful and you must snuggle me!

Look me straight in the eye and tell me that you aren’t taking me to the vet!

You can’t do it can you?

I knew it! Soooo, the vet is nice and all but you owe me! What do I get for being so good?

Oh! That will work!

:) She is such a good girl! It’s an overnight visit and the vet techs promised to brush her a lot. She took her little kitty suitcase with her so she has all the things a girl needs when she travels. Smokey should have her surgery in the morning. For those who didn’t see earlier mentions of it, she has a tumor and I did some research and since it hasn’t spread ,as was expected, I am hoping it is benign. Educating ourselves is important. Hope is too.

Right!? Kitties always seem to know when something is up. Maybe they're psycat. (lol. that was a horrible pun, it sounded better in my head, sorry.)

Aw, I hope her surgery goes well! Yes, hope (and faith!) is very important.

Jcatbird Jcatbird please, get some rest!
Cats are wise. They've taught me things like patience, love, and trust.

I am praying for him every single day. I firmly believe that "With God, all things are possible." (Matthew 19:26). I am so glad that your dad and your stepmom got to talk to each other, that is so great.
Get some rest, and I hope that tomorrow brings you good news about Smokey, your dad, and your stepmom. Sleep well 💕

I just heard from the vet. They did not remove the tumor. It has metastasized. I will go and pick her up a little later to come home for as long as she is happy and has a good quality of life. 💔:petcat:The big thing now is just to keep her spirits up. Let her be a happy cat.
