My brother survived the surgery today. Considering everything he had to overcome, this is huge.

I saw a new eye specialist and am hopeful for a new path. Still waiting for labs on my foot.
I'm very glad to hear about your brother!
And your new eye specialist.
:hyper: :vibes:

I was quite amused last night when I got home. Marble the kitty was waiting for me at the front door. When I opened it, he came running to the house and straight to the kitchen where my cats' food bowls were. Even my own cats welcomed him by sniffing, like they were saying, "Where have you been?" He seemed a bit confused when I carried him back outside and fed him there. I was already attached to the little guy, and maybe he is also to me.
It makes me happy to read about people doing things like this- wonderful people in the world.

You 'duck' 'down' real quick :crackup:
:flail::flail::flail:

I'd prefer the Goose who lays the golden eggs! 💰 (Couldn't find a Goose emoji)

dustydiamond1 dustydiamond1 My tongue has dents in it. Lol Maybe that keeps my head balanced? :lol:

rubysmama rubysmama Thank you. My brother is really going through a lot but he is tough. I can only imagine his situation but he is holding his own.
Glad to get the opinion of a second eye specialist. We’ll see what follows. Going to be following up on the foot. Step by step! ;)

Lari Lari Thank you! I am always so glad to be back among our loved ones here. My eye is stable for the moment. Trying to turn the bend with my foot. Lol Come on toesies!!!

BellaGooch BellaGooch Thank you! Please keep up the prayers. They do help.

M maggiedemi It is so nice to have you back! Metaphors for you! Rescue and survival go together. Hmmm. I always advise to try and turn the other cheek when facing someone who seems upset but I must say that I still hold tight to the old thought of good winning in the end. At least, I keep trying. Never give up. More does come later.
Muffin says she is very glad you are here. She missed you! A few others added their thoughts on that too! Lady says you should feel her purrs right about now! Lol

Whenallhellbreakslose Whenallhellbreakslose Aww. Thank you for the prayers and telling me that people here cate about me. My heart just got a warm fuzzy. Kitty heart!
I do hope the rice as a filler will help. Mixed in well it may work. My mom did that years ago and I learned it from her. I used it when feeding over a hundred here. I have cooked down chicken for the broth to soak the rice. That helped too and I could make broth off the chicken more than once. Nothing but water with the chicken stewed in it. On very cold days I put warm bowls of broth out beside the dry food and the kitties liked it. We do what we can. Around here the kitties love the juice and sometimes I open a can of tuna and water and add more water to it to give everyone enough of their favorite part. Lol kitties!

Mamanyt1953 Mamanyt1953 Thank you for keeping the candle lit. He can’t tolerate the pain meds so it’s tough going without that. He is improving though.

tabbytom tabbytom Lovely looking meal! Double yolks? Wow! A bonus. Two for one! I hope you had an appetite!

pearl99 pearl99 You had a double too? Hmmmm. Nature trying to produce more. She does that sometimes. It’s been a long time since I have seen that.

N NY cat man I remember candling eggs. I only had one hen for a long time and could check the eggs right away.,I always kind of hated taking the eggs but after she hatched a bunch of babies we couldn’t keep having more. I guess that was as close as we could get to population control for chickens.

Whenallhellbreakslose Whenallhellbreakslose Lucky yolks? If I bought a lottery ticket I would just end up with egg on my face.;)

dustydiamond1 dustydiamond1 I’ll take those vibes! I’d like a pair of glasses like that too! Lolololol Of course, Banjo would claim them.

rubysmama rubysmama I can feel the vibes on the breeze! Ahhhhh. Nice. It’s great to have fans. Some days I really need them. Glad you aren’t shoveling snow!

tabbytom tabbytom If you find a chicken that lays double yolks, you will have to let those yolks turn into babies! That’s a new breed! That’s better than the lottery. If that chicken has ducks…..there was a duck in the woodpile!:lol:

M maggiedemi I’m with you. I could use some golden eggs. I am still panning for good here. Lol

N NY cat man Ripleys!!:lol:

pearl99 pearl99 Thank you. Moving forward. Hopefully.
I love the expression on that goose!:flail:

tarasgirl06 tarasgirl06 I love the pictures of the kitties in the Mojave. I guess the cold weather was pretty intense there. Makes for lovely floof! I always love the kitties in their winter coats.

Time for a smile post? Past due. If I am not careful, I could lose my library privileges! Fortunately the kitties helped me out. I didn’t get a double egg this morning but I did get an extra treat.

Flowers, I got a bonus!!

Maybe I can! Let me sniff.

Do you usually drink this human?
9AEC4AAB-E2C6-4E34-9D14-72FD2C2B629A.jpeg

It makes my mouth water.
681DDAD6-B709-4865-89C5-0AAEBEE7298A.jpeg

You should stick your nose in here human!

Ummm, Banjo, it doesn’t smell like what I would like.

Lolololol. No one taking credit?

Noticed your tv, we also have a 'classic'. Sometimes the rabbit ears need a kitty ears boost.

I hope that next egg will have double big ones
If you find a chicken that lays double yolks, you will have to let those yolks turn into babies! That’s a new breed! That’s better than the lottery. If that chicken has ducks…..there was a duck in the woodpile!:lol:
Think you need to tie two chicken together and get them lay eggs together and maybe we'll get big double yolks :lol:

Hmmm... as the folks in the coffee and tea thread know, I do love my Cafe Mocha. :yummy:
Not sure about Cafe Mouse though. :lol:

However, a mouse drinking coffee, is kinda cute.

Thanks, as always, for the smile post. There's no better way to start the day. :)

Thanks once again for the tips. I just went out shopping yesterday for Thanksgiving Day food and walked down the cat food aisle pleasantly surprised that it was decently stocked. I then bought a bunch of cans. I have been hearing from some members here and elsewhere that the cat food shortages looks like it is improving for now. I will keep my fingers 🤞. But regardless, I will prepare in cases things go down hill. Better to be safe than sorry. I am so grateful for your advice and others here. Thank you.

I am still praying for you and your brother. I wish you all the best and all the best to all the kitties at Chez Catbird. 🙂

P.S. Don't feel bad. I have had "egg on my face" when buying lottery tickets. Rarely do I win anything. Such a waste.

I see what you did there. It's good to keep a sense of humor about it. :lol:

Never give up. More does come later.
I hope so! :crossfingers:

I am still panning for good here.
I love your typos. Always so fitting. :thumbsup:

Hee hee. Mackie is quite the barista. ☕

Hopefully, it wasn’t in my coffee the whole time!
Ewww! I certainly hope not. 😭

So nice to see you here, M maggiedemi and YOU, Jcatbird Jcatbird ! Very glad to hear the good reports and *PRAYERS* continue for you and for your brother. Hoping all is well at Chez Catbird -- looks like you got a pretty new striped rug! The two pix of the five on it are priceless! and we can always count on Big Mackie to inspect and report on any breaking "mews" there!

Thank you! ❤

Jcatbird Jcatbird -- Now whenever I drink my coffee and flavored creamers/cappuccinos, I think of your little kitty baristas and wish I was there to drink it with them. Minus the mouse of course. I prefer Vanilla, make note of that please. ☕
*Make that two, PURRlease!*

dustydiamond1 dustydiamond1 I do have an old TV but we can’t have rabbit ears. Those are big ears! Whistle would never watch TV again! :lol: He likes to watch the weather man.

Gypsy almost got caught with her paw in the Cookie jar? So to speak? Lucky squirrel that you were watching. Lol

tabbytom tabbytom So how are you and January? What would January think of double clucking hens? Lol
I love that Pawverb. I have often looked into kitty eyes and thought they must hold great knowledge. They certainly speak to us if we watch them.

rubysmama rubysmama I’m glad you enjoyed the smile post even if you don’t care for kitty brew. Lol The mouse drinking coffee made me smile and Mackie too. I suppose a mouse would liie a cheese flavored brew?:oops:

Whenallhellbreakslose Whenallhellbreakslose That is great news that you found cat supplies. So far I have found it an up and down sort of thing. I catch things when I see them and try to load up for a while to be safe. With many cats it is a little nerve wracking and for those needing specific foods it can be scary. I hope it will all level out in time.
Thank you for the prayers. My brother has just gotten home. He is very weak and struggling but there’s no place like home!

M maggiedemi Good catch on that typo. I like panning for good! Still hoping for gold too though!:lol: Kitty good is good.

Yes, one foot and one step! It helps to find the lighter side of things. It keeps the soul healthy.

Mackie has been giggling a lot lately. We all know how he loves to joke around so I am checking my coffee daily! He says that if you come visit, he will be glad to make you coffee every day!

tarasgirl06 tarasgirl06 The new rug is really a beach mat or outdoor rug for a patio. I love those things because I can just take them outside and clean them with soap and the hose. They are woven plastic and dry very quickly but they are also soft to walk on. The kitties have always loved those things. They kind of crunch under foot so they often play on them. I have a few around and they are warm on the floor now that it is getting cooler. Smokey was a big fan of them when I brought home the first ones for the cat room. I moved the other one into the room with Goldie, Mountain snd Blue. Thank you for the prayers. Always find them very comforting.

rubysmama rubysmama Thank you for the healing vibes. I got the lab work back and I am now on a new antibiotic for my foot. The medical attention needs to continue for now.

tarasgirl06 tarasgirl06 and M maggiedemi Anything vanilla is orchid flavored and a big plus with me! I’ll see if I can get Mackie to switch from mouse to vanilla. Lol If he giggles after giving you a cup, don’t drink it!

Mackie is so funny. When he came out of the bedroom for a visit today, he came with my pajamas! I guess he wanted me to snuggle up with him for a cat nap. Lol
