It’s Valentine’s Day Every Day

Mommy, I wanna faynk you fur savin’ my life awl thoze yearz ago. Even tho’ minez eyez wazn’t open and I kuldn’t hear anything; da moment I felt you holdin’ me in youz armz I felt safe fur da furzt time in my short but terrifyin’ life. Da minit I felt youz heart beat next to me I knew ebberthing was gunna be awl-right. When my ears opened up and I heard you fur da furzt time it waz az ifin heaven waz singin’ a lullaby. And when furinally da skin parted and minez eyez foe-kuzzed I saw you, minez mommy. You didn’t know it at da time, but I waz home and no other mommy wuld do.

Nope, no matter where we went or moved to, you awlwayz made shur I waz right there wiff ya’. Youz awlwayz been true to youz word.

Az time passez quicker and quicker theze dayz mommy, I fear I may habz to break minez purromize to nebber leave you. I don’t want to go. You muzt believe dat mommy. But minez body juzt keepz failin’ me. It seemz thiz kidney dizeaze is ketchin’ up to me. I’z habbin’ more and more bad dayz and less and less good onez. Still you kradle me in youz armz and sing of minez beauty dat haz no doubt started to fade. You sit up nightz wiffout any sleep juzt to watch ober me. Youz kuvvered da bedroom and pawdee box room wiff piddle padz in spite of how it lookz, juzt to make shure I habz sumwhere to go dat duzn’t make me feel bad. And even when I miss ’em youz nebber get mad at me.

When minez time comez, purrleaze habz da strength to luvz me a little more and let me go. And then luv another, da way you luvved me.

Blest Gotchaday Sunday

Well it’s a Blest Gotchaday day Sunday fur me. Yep, this is da day me got gotted 6 years ago. Me gave you a brief look into da events of meez gotchaday in meez last posty. Ifin you missed it you can read it here. Me is a Thanksgivin’ kitty fur sure. Meez furst three weeks of life might have been turbulent, but meez been livin’ on cloud nine ever since mommy saved me. Meez big blessin’ at this time of year is meez life and meez furmily. Me kuld very well have died afur mommy ever came to save me, but God was lookin’ out fur me and kept me holdin’ on till He kuld send mommy to me. Altho’ mommy didn’t take and foster meez 10 littermates she did help da dog rescue dat took us in; to get them all healthy. As far as we know, all meez littermates lived and got homes. Me bets none of them got a mommy like me did tho’. (Weez postin’ never afur seen fotos from back then. We pawlogize fur da quality, we had nuffin’ digital back then. Can you believe we actually thought some of these was good? MOL Thank catness fur digital cameras.)

Meez furst day in meez new home and me now 6 years later.

 

In other news , you may have noticed we haven’t been round much. As we was visitin’ you all on Furiday we had to take a small bweak cuz mommy’s case worker was here fur sum paper signin. Mommy wasn’t movin’ very fast to begin with, but we were makin’ da rounds. After mommy’s case worker left we tried to git back to visitin but it was our turn to update our puter. See we signed up fur Windows 10 a while back. We never heard anything ‘back from them and basically just furgot ‘bout it all. Till Furiday when suddenly our catputer started updatin’. Parently our turn had come up and we was getting’ da new Windows 10. What it really meant was no bed fur mommy Furiday night cuz she had to monitor da whole fing and then find everyfin’ again.

Mommy sez me was a spitfire then and me still is.

OMC It’s gunna take us a while to figger all this out. Nuffin’ is where weez used to it bein’ and it’s so alive it seems to log us outta stuff all da time. It took a good little while to get it set up and then we discovered dat we had to re-load everything weez use to usin’ includin’ google, da live writer we use fur managin’ da blog, our email, well everyfin’. And then we gotta find where it all went to. MOL  Mommy is just not puter literate enuff fur this kind of stuffs. MOL  Which reminds me, sum of you got a email yesfurday dat sed me published a new bloggy but then nuffin’ was there. Seems when da Windows Live Writer syncs, it posts a temporary post and then immediately deletes it in order to verify and link up to da blog. Me didn’t actually post to da blog yesfurday. Mommy kuld barely hold hers head up much less type. MOL  We are excited ‘bout da new Windows 10 but it is daunting too. Purrlease bear with us as we find our way around again and get back to visitin’. And mommy gets sum rest. Ifin any of ya’ dat have already updated have any tips, let us know.
