Merry (white) Christmas!!

We have no idea what this will look like once it posts, Mama is having trouble lining up the pictures. So if it looks really strange, please try to ignore the strangeness.

Anyway, we are having our first white Christmas in 8 years!! We've been having fun watching the big snowflakes falling! Mama's not so happy about it though. She wishes it would have waited a little later in the day to start snowing. She missed out on her family Christmas gathering cause she didn't wanna drive 25 miles in the pretty snow. She's not the most confident driver in good weather, so this really put her off. She'll get over it though.

We want to wish efurrybuddy the Merriest Christmas ever!! Hope Santa Paws brought you all you wanted!!

We got our Secret Paws package on the 23rd, we'll blog about it later.

Brrrrry Monday

We got our first snow of the season yesterday. Not very much but more than Mama wanted. She's not a fan of winter weather...she's really not happy that the temp is 7 degrees!
We got Mama to get our Christmas cards ready & our Secret Paws package ready to mail. She had the Secret Paws package all sealed up when she realized she forgot to put our note in with it. Some days she's just useless, *sigh*.....

Wordy Wednesday

We really gotta keep a good watch on Mama or she will be bringing in another kitty. Yesterday when she went to get the mail, there was this small tortie cat sittin on our back step. She petted & loved on him/her for a bit then walked on to the mailbox. The kitty followed her! I mean, really, she's our mama...not his/hers! Our mailbox is across the highway, so Mama picked up the kitty cause she didn't want him/her on the road. The kitty didn't want to be held, so he/she jumped down & beat Mama across the road then followed her back home.
Mama came in & got the very last of our stinky goodness & some crunchies & took it out for the kitty to eat. Our LAST stinky goodness!!! Doesn't matter that we won't eat it, it's the principle of the matter!
Anyway, when Mama came back in the house, that kitty tried to come in with her!! Mama is very tempted, especially since it's turned off real cold, but she can't afford to take him/her to the v-e-t. And after efurrything with Joey last year, she doesn't know if her heart could take it. So we're on a wait-n-see watch. We keep tellin her we don't need anymore kitties here!!

We hope everybuddy had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Mama was sick all week, but a furry good friend of hers brought her dinner with all the trimmings. We even got bites of turkey!! It was yummy!
Anyway, we're just gonna be laying around snoozin today. Hope you all get your snoozins in too!!

Happy Birthday Sammy!

Today is Sammy's 8th birthday & Mama almost forgot. We don't know how she could almost forget, we guess she's just losing her mind or something.
Anyways, we're sending her to the store to buy all kinds of yummy noms & things to play with. Come on over & party with us!!

We are very thankful to our veterans who keep us free. Happy Veteran's Day!!

Remembering Joey........

Today would have been Joey's 1st Gotcha Day. These are the first pictures Mama took of him.
She still misses him & gets all leaky-eyes over him. Joey was a furry special kitty & Mama still loves & misses him furry much.

Now what??

Mama here. I am totally at my wits end! I squeeze Fessy's ear as hard as I can & get little to nothing out...seems like I'm just making it worse. It is now so swollen that you can hardly see his ear canal.
I read that the hematoma will heal itself eventually, but it takes awhile & is very painful. I just know that I can't afford to keep taking him to the vet & torturing him only to see it get worse.
If anyone out there in cat blog land has any suggestions, I would really appreciate them. I don't know what else to do.

Another Update on Festus

Mama took Fessy back to the v-e-t today. She had to drop him off after lunch & pick him up around 4:00. This time they just cut a hole in his ear, but didn't put stitches around like last time. The v-e-t told Mama to make sure she squeezes his ear 4 or 5 times a day. She doesn't know why he didn't put a drain in, probably because he's a country v-e-t & maybe he just doesn't do that. He doesn't recommend using a hot compress. We're just hoping it heals up this time. It's hard on Fes & it's hard on Mama. Her eyes leak something terrible when she has to squeeze on his ear, she hates hurting him like that but that's all she can do right now.
Thanks for all your purrs.

3rd time's the charm???

Mama has to take Festus back to the v-e-t yet again. His ear filled back up worse than it was....hopefully it will get taken care of & never come back!

Monday, October 4, 2010

Update on Festus

Fes saw the v-e-t today & he sang to Mama both ways! Oh Funny Farmers, we only wish we could raise money that way, we'd be rich!! The v-e-t stuck a needle in Fessy's hear in 3 different places to drain it (ouchie!!). He said for Mama to keep an eye on it (that's weird) & to let him know if it fills up again. Mama said that Festus was the best boy & never made a sound while all that was going on. He laid still, well Mama & another lady was holding on to him, but he was really good. Too bad that didn't happen on the way home, hee, hee.
When they got home, Mama opened a can of stinky goodness for all of us to share! Only thing is, we just licked the gravy off & Festus is trying to cover the rest up. Oh well, the gravy was good!!
Thanks for all the purrs, maybe we can keep em up so that his ear finally heals. Thanks everybuddy, we love you!!!

Not again......

Mama has to take Festus back to the v-e-t. His ear quit draining so she stopped squeezing it, but now it's all puffed up behind the, back to the v-e-t. Fun, fun,fun....NOT!!!
So, we'll make Mama update sometime after the v-e-t visit. Festus will probably sing to her again on the way, we think he sings Opera. She says, thank goodness it's only 7 miles to the clinic!

Thankful Thursday

We are thankful that Festus is home & on the mend. He still has a lot of pain, especially when Mama has to squeeze his ear to help it drain. He's still hiding behind the big chair quite a bit but he comes out to love with Mama once in awhile. We'll just be glad when he's all better.

Tuesday, September 21, 2010

Festus is home, YAY!!!

Fessy is home, but still feeling a little puny. He wouldn't even eat treats when he got home! Right now he is hiding behind the big chair, but at least he's home.

Thank you all for the purrs & information.

Sunday, September 19, 2010



Teri & the cats from Furrydance is right, it's a hematoma. Both ears are infected & the v-e-t wants to keep Festus overnight. Mama didn't even ask how much it was gonna cost, she was so sad he had to stay.

Please send out some purrs for Festus. Mama was loving on him & found that his left ear is all swollen & puffed up. She said it feels hot to touch & so tight it could explode! She's gonna try to get him in to the v-e-t tomorrow before she has to go to work. Please purr that it's nothin serious....

Happy 6th Gotcha Day Festus!!

Can't believe it's been 6 years since I brought my little fluff ball home! He's still a fluff ball, just a lot bigger now :-).
Mama loves you, Fessy, you'll always be my baby!

We have a sad....

Mama forgot!!

OMC!! Can you believe that Mama forgot our 2nd Blogoversary?!? It's bad enough that she hardly lets us blog anymore, but this is almost unforgivable! The only reason it's not totally unforgivable is that she got us presents yesterday.
She got us some new food dishes & we really like them. Sammy has a bad habit of fishing the food out of the bowl with his paw, then eating what doesn't fall in the floor. Mama got tired of sweeping up catfood & throwing it out the door, so she thought these might work out better. These dishes sit in a stand that is about 7 1/2 inches tall. Now we can sit up & eat our foods instead of almost laying down. Mama is quite pleased to see no food on the floor around the dishes.
She also got us a Furminator! She's wanted to get us one for a long time but thought they were just too many green papers. But she saw one on for $8.50 + $4.99 for shipping! What was even better, she had a little over $7 left on an Amazon gift card she forgot about, so it only cost about $6.....what a bargain!! We also got some more treats & we do love our treats! So that's why we gotta forgive her for her forgetting our blogoversary.
Mama's leg is lots better. It's still draining a little & she promised 2 beans that if it's still draining after she finishes her Aunty-biotics, that she will go back to her v-e-t & have it checked again. She says she's had lots of kitty bites over the years but never one like this. It hurt so bad she could hardly walk for a few days. One good thing came of it though, she's a lot more careful about where she puts her big ole feets! She looks pretty funny when she gets up to use her litterbox in the dark & she's scooting her feet all the way there & back.

Easy weekend

This is why we're having an especially easy weekend:

Mama accidentally stepped on Emma early Wednesday moring & Emma bit Mama's leg. This is what it looked like Friday morning so Mama decided to go to the bean v-e-t place to get it checked. She has a furry bad infection & has to take Aunty-biotics & she had to get a tetanus shot. She has to stay off her feet as much as possible & keep her leg elevated, so we are taking turns purring on her.

Lots of other beans think Mama should be mad at Emmy, but she knows Emmy didn't mean to hurt her. In fact, after it happened, Mama was crying & telling Emma she was sorry that she hurt her! Some beans just don't understand. Besides, we know it was Mama's fault, she needs to watch where she's putting those big feet of hers.

Birthday Boy

Today is Fessie's 6th birthday!! Come on over & party with us, Mama got some new toy mousies & yummy treats!! While she's taking care of the little sticky kids at their house, we can totally trash our house since she's been slacking on the bloggie!

Frustrated Friday

Well as you can see, the putting down of the paws didn't work. Mama has excuse after excuse why she hasn't helped us blog. Did we wanna hear them? No, we told her we didn't want excuses, we want to blog. Really, how hard is it to sit at the computer & help us?? She seems to think she doesn't have time or she got sick or she's tired from working. Boo-freakin-hoo, we don't care, we just wanna blog & visit our furiends!! We're gonna keep working on her. Have we mentioned that WE WANNA BLOG???

Wednesday, April 21, 2010

Wordy Wednesday

OK Mama, we are putting our paws down!! It is time you start letting us blog again. We don't wanna hear no more excuses, we miss our furiends & blogging, it's time to get your act together....we mean it!!!

Today Emma is 4....

Hi efurrybuddy, sorry we've been gone so long. Mama says life keeps getting in the way.
Anyway, today is my 4th birthday & I hope you will stop by & party with us! Maybe somebuddy can move life out of the way so we can blog more.....

Sammy's 7th Gotcha Day!!

I can't believe that it's been 7 years since I came here to live with Mama! "Daddy" lived here then, but I was pretty much Mama's boy...still am, `cept I have to share her with Fes & Emma.

Monday, March 8, 2010

We're back.....

We are so sorry that we haven't blogged in so long. Between jobbie issues, losing Joey & trying to help a family member going through domestic abuse, Mama hasn't really felt like helping us blog.

We've been making her read our furiends bloggies but the comments have been very few & far between. All of us feel real bad about that, but what's a kitty to do?? We did make her sign up for the Squillion give-away & we can't believe we actually won!!

We are waaay behind on "Thank yous", clear back to our Secret Paws gifts (heads hung down in shame). We'll be working on Mama to get that done soon!

There is some good news to report, Mama has been working as a substitute in the daycare for Teen Parent Services off & on the past couple months. And today she starts back taking care of her sticky bean & blurpy!! She's so excited because she can still sub if they need her at the daycare since she will be taking care of the other 2 in the evening! So, the green paper situation should be getting better....what a relief!!!

Hopefully we will be getting back in full blogging mode furry soon.

One month.....

It's been one month since our Joey went to the Bridge, it doesn't seem possible that he's been gone that long. Mama's eyes still get leaky for him every day, but she is doing better. We all purr on her a little more than we used to & we think that might help a little.

Mama is famous.....sort of...

If you want to see Mama on TV go to, on the right side of the page is the top videos. She's the big blonde gal in the blue shirt rocking sticky beans.

Mama was on TV tonight!! That makes her famous, right??

She was a substitute at the Teen Parent Services childcare today, that means she got to play with little blurps & sticky beans. Our local news did a story on teen pregnancy, so they were at the school taping the teen beans & their little beans. When the news beans came in the childcare room, they taped Mama rocking two little sticky beans. There was three different shots of her so we're pretty sure she must be at least a little famous. We were furry excited!

Easy like Sunday

Hi efurrybuddy, we want to let you know that we're doing OK. Mama still gets leaky eyes & she still misses Joey alot, but she's doing better. In that respect anyway. She's been kind of sicky the last few days. She says her head feels like there's a big drum pounding in it, she's had eye boogers, nose name it.

We do want to thank efurryone for the condolence messages, it was nice to know that so many of our furiends were thinking of us. And we met some new furiends, too!
We also want to thank Charlemagne & Tamar & Mom Colleen for the donation & the beautiful card. And ML & the Sherwood Bunch for their donation & ML for helping Mama through a very dark time. She also had a gift made for Mama & we will post pictures later.
We would be lost without all our furiends, we love you guys, thank you for everything!

Joey is an angel

Around 4:45 this afternoon, Joey was helped to the Bridge. My heart is broken & I feel so lost. I know we haven't been posting very regular, but I will be taking a few days off so I can grieve for my baby.

Saturday, January 2, 2010


Joey wasn't any better at all yesterday, so last night I called an emergency vet clinic & talked to a vet there. She told me to start syringe feeding him chicken baby food & pedialyte. My sister went to the store & got some, then drove a half hour to bring them to me so I wouldn't have to leave Joey.

I've been feeding him about every 4 hours & he seems to being doing some better. He is still very weak, but he is starting to fight me during his feedings so I take that as a good sign. He even came in & got in bed with me this morning, he rarely did that before he got sick. He even ventured into the kitchen awhile ago, so he must be getting a little strength back.
I have to go babysit for 3 or 4 hours tonight & I hate to leave him, but I need the money.

Thank you all for your purrs, purrayers & prayers. Hopefully he will get well & not leave me. He's only been here for about 2 1/2 months, but I can't imagine my life without him.
