Thankful, Gotcha Days and More


Snowball
 First off we would like to thank all of you for your comforting comments on Facebook, our blog and emails to Mom and Pop about losing Minnie last week.  Mom was not up for blogging  - so she posted her Halloween post on the Tabby Cat Club, and Callie's 2nd Gotcha Day (Nov. 1) on Ladies of Autumn. Scylla of ACAD hosted a wonderful tea party in Callie's honor.  Mom also postponed my Gotcha Day until now.  Too much going on so soon after Minnie going to the Bridge - Mom wanted time to grieve and to leave Minnie's last post up for a few days.

Callie


 Things have been a bit rough for us the past year.  Last fall I was at the vet for severe constipation  that goes with my megacolon.  Georgie was there also for her diagnosis of diabetes and then again for constipation and then back to the vet this spring for her bout with fatty liver disease. We hope all the sadness and illness are behind us now.  I am feeling super groovy these days and things look outta sight for us.  I am just very thankful to be here in this loving family with all my siblings and humans.Can ya dig it?




Hang loose and enjoy while we entertain you with a 60's themed party  for my belated 9th Gotcha Day (Nov. 2).  I am ten years old this year but no one recalls the date. I have slapped up some cool psychedelic posters, put on my tie dyed shirt and turned on Pandora to the Jimi Hendrix station. We have some classic 60s snacks here - chips and onion dip, refreshing 7-up, the delish cheese ball with Ritz crackers and of course nip laced brownies.








Thank you for coming by, for always being there for us when things are not going well and most importantly for your friendship.  You guys are fab!

We are sorry things have been so tough for you this year. Please let us know if we can be of any help.

Happy Gotchas to Snowball and Callie. We understand why your Mom wasn't up to celebrating. We had that happen to us too when Abby became an Angel. She left us on 8-12 and our blogoversary was 8-15. Needless to say Mom did not feel much celebration. She forgot it in fact. She forgot a lot that first year. So your Mom is doing great! We continue to send big purrs and comfort to her and your Dad too.

PepiSmartDog: welcome to our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. So nice to meet you!
I am very sorry to read about Minnie making her journey across the Rainbow Bridge. I am a Rainbow Bridge Ambassador and can assure you its a pretty cool place. Please know Minnie knows you love her and the day you unexpectedly find yourself standing on the bridge, Minnie will be there to meet you. You will be a forever family again...not just yet.
We hope you will join our blog hop each week so we can get to know each other and have share some fun stuff. Hope to see you again this week. *waves paw* :=o)
