Mamanyt1953 Mamanyt1953 Mamanyt1953 Mamanyt1953 Soooo, how are you? Thank you for keeping the candle lit a bit longer.
Banjo's candle will remain lit, as will candles for Red Zeplin (even though he is improving YAY) and for Bourbon.

I'm not too bad. Mostly I just get exhausted really quickly, and my heart rate goes up to 120 just walking from my chair 18 feet into my kitchen. Yes, I measured it.

pearl99 pearl99 Wonderful that Red Zeppelin is better! :bunnydance: Please do keep us updated. All good thoughts and prayers continue.

Maria Bayote Maria Bayote I know how hard it is to rest when we know they are sick. Gosh. I can remember when Bonjour was little and wheezing. He did overcome it and now we just need to keep Bourbon in our thoughts, hopes and prayers. Any chance the coughing is fur related? Sometimes I think Bonnie is having old issues return and I end up finding a lovely black hairball somewhere. I hope Bourbon feels better and you get a solid sleep.:alright::hugs:

rubysmama rubysmama Thank you! Banjo is feeling better. Smile coming!:)

tabbytom tabbytom I always love seeing kitty prayers. I think they must go up faster than the speed of light.:cloud9:

neely neely That is so kind! I am just one of the ripples that went out upon the sea to find what Banjo needed. It took many ripples to get her to where she needed to be. The sea of help is the miracle. Now I hope those ripples go out to touch others. I spent today sending the info to as many people as I could. I will do that again tomorrow. Coast to coast today. Maybe further tomorrow.🌊 The specialist who helped us in the final diagnosis just told me her daughter was diagnosed with leukemia. Yet, when she got the latest results on Banjo, she was filled with joy. It was news she needed. A miracle that helped us all through the day? Today my prayers also go out to them. May her child be well and maybe even a mistaken diagnosis! As we know, it can happen. Kind of interesting how one thing can link to another. Small coincidences, small or large wins. The blanket I gave the specialist that day was chosen by Banjo. It had kitties doing magic on the blanket. I didn’t know her child was sick but maybe Banjo did. More little ripples. Banjo got a blanket that day too. How do kitties know these things?:headscratch: 💥🌙:bicolorcat:

Busy washing your earsBanjo? How about that question?
How do I know these things?

Silly question! I know everything! Lolololol

dustydiamond1 dustydiamond1 I hope you are all getting rested up some after the move and settling in.
Mamanyt1953 Mamanyt1953 Hmmm. Please take good care of yourself! 18 feet. When you feel kind of bad, that 18 feels much, much farther. My house shrinks at times when I am trying to clear stuff out and it seems everything is in the way but it grows larger when I am too tired. Rest and get better! :hugs:

strider rose strider rose Thank you for Banjo and the other kitties! Hoping for quick recoveries.

I had planned a long smile post but got tied up with calls. Hopefully coming soon though!

Jcatbird Jcatbird oh how cute Banjo is on those pics. Glad he is better. As for Bourbie, her coughs return every year, sometimes mild, but often bad. When I first rescued her, I thought she was "barking" . I was new with cat rescue then so I did not know at first. Since then, she has been coming back and forth to different vets for the same health issues.

pearl99 pearl99 happy to hear Red is ok now.

And to all, thanks for the prayers. I hope you are all fine, including the kitties.

Maria Bayote Maria Bayote The only thing missing from the Banjo pictures was Froggie! We all know that a frog Prince must have some magic. ;) I think Banjo choose the blanket with him in mind. Lol

Some Bourbon has the same issues about this time each year, do the vets think it is allergies? I know that I have used a steamy bathroom to give Bonnie relief when he was young so maybe ask the vet about that? I also put some hepa filters on the AC. I know shedding is an issue with my floof kitties too. I try to brush them as much as I can. Bonnie provides me with enough to make another kitty coat! Feel better Bourbon!:happycat:

tarasgirl06 tarasgirl06 and Furballsmom Furballsmom Ditto on your ditto!

Someone is telling us it’s bath time around here. :lol:
Dirty little lambs? Dirt water bowl now. Lol

Banjo, you need some cleaning up. You got kind of dirty before the anesthesia wore off.
2B4D3FBC-B211-4FC5-9DDE-3180AEE65A0A.jpeg

I am never a dirty kitty.

I don’t know Banjo! You got food on your chin when you were woozy on meds.

I am never woozy.

Hooman, are you sure it wasn’t you who got a dirty chin?

Lol Banjo!

Come on, just let me wipe your chin a little. I wiped you down some the other day but I missed your chin.

I don’t remember it that way. I think I washed you.

What if Froggie helped?
F12D2F3D-80BC-4E31-AD46-4BB3D3BC90AE.jpeg

Seriously? You expect me to let that tongue wash me?
A0408539-4F68-417B-AFC1-3A4404B6826C.jpeg

Froggie loves you Banjo!!!!!
D4AEC6BD-9E6C-422D-BF91-AD160DF1051A.jpeg

That’s true.

I should wash Froggie.

Tastes like bugs.

What?
7283EA79-6326-44F9-AF9F-FCD094DC891D.jpeg

I know. I love you too Froggie. Even with bug flavor.
58DBBA4F-796D-40DA-B2B8-9A66F1561BE1.jpeg

Froggie kisses are great even after bugs.

Come on up and snuggle Froggie.

Next time you should go with me to the vet.

I could have used some Back up!

How about…. (Whisper, whisper)?
F672308F-B799-41D7-9E25-AF302C54825B.jpeg

Come on down Banjo. Let me clean your chin!

No.

If you want me, get a ladder.

I’m kissing right now.

Froggie says you should just jump! Ahahahahahahahahahaha!

Besides, my chin is fine.

We are both fine as Frogs’ hair!

Can you tell? Froggie always has my back!
159B301D-42DB-4B42-AAC9-C006443DE7E0.jpeg

Uh Oh. Froggie. I think she is going for a ladder! You got my back?

Froggie?!?!?

Where did Banjo go?
82DE0550-3FCD-498A-B187-5CE1B6014CCB.jpeg

I’m not telling.
9BDCFE4A-76BC-4CA8-8DDC-8653635DFBC0.jpeg

You can never out smart a cat!
I have a feeling that sometime tonight, I will wake up to a cat licking my chin!

It’s great to be back tabbytom tabbytom ! I missed everyone so much! It’s nice to see you too! Ahhh, don’t tell the hooman but I’m hiding under the Frog until the lights are out. As soon as she is asleep, we’re going to go together and wash her chin! :insertevillaugh: She’ll dream about a prince turning into a frog!! Ahahahahahahahahaha!

:sleep2: 🤴 🐸 😮

Oh look at Banjo! Adorable little thing! You remind me of my Pepsi. Such cuteness!

BOurbon is still on medication. I bought air purifier and humidifier just for her several months ago to help her out. She used to stay with me while I take a shower at our previous apartment which had a much bigger bathroom, but since we transferred to this tiny apartment with a bathroom 3x smaller than before she has not yet gotten that bathroom steam she used to have every morning and night.

Bourbon this morning:

Yay! A smile post to start my day! :)

Feel better soon, Bourbon. :vibes::vibes::vibes:

Dark and dreary here today, as we're getting some much needed rain.
But here's a bright and cheery pic I took the other day.

strider rose strider rose Banjo says ,”thank you” she picked it out. Of course. It is super soft and snuggly. Maybe she will share it with me sometime. Lol I know she will share it with Froggie.

Maria Bayote Maria Bayote Well you have already gotten her everything a kitty could need. I have kitties that like to make sure I am okay in the shower. Mine has a small glass door and if Mackie comes in there he keeps opening the door to make sure I haven’t drowned. Lol He also checks afterwards to make sure I didn’t go down the drain. Bourbon actually looks bright eyed and alert! Bourbon is so beautiful! Feel better Bourbon!

tabbytom tabbytom Bourbon is bound to feel better after seeing a “kitten care package” like that one! :)
rubysmama rubysmama Happy Whiskers Wednesday to you too! Those flowers look like sunshine! Purrfect for a rainy day! We have had a mix of gray haze from smoke with glimpses of sky. Lots of wind and thunder but no rain. I did see rain across the street though! Lol No fish in the yard yet this year.
A smile for breakfast. Hmmm. I think the prescription is supposed to be ,” take two and call me in the morning.” ;) With a breakfast Muffin?
tarasgirl06 tarasgirl06 Banjo seems to back up to her old tricks! Froggie must have worked his magic on her. We couldn’t ask for better care giving than that! She managed to stay invisible when I wanted to wash her chin. Lol I am pretty sure I heard giggling last night and felt frog breath on my face. Nah. Must have been dreaming. 😝 Lol
