Happy Birthday, Jewel!

Today would have been Jewel's 20th birthday.  I have no doubt that she would still be with us, bossing us around, demanding treats, and telling Carmine to get his head out of her cube - if it hadn't been for that evil kidney disease. 

We miss you, everyday, Jewel.  You were such a blessing in our lives.  

We hope you have a most wonderful birthday today at the Bridge and that all our friends there are helping you celebrate!

Happy Birthday, sweet angel!  We love you!!

Carmine, Lita, and the Mom

Mancat Monday

Hi everyone, it's mes, Carmine!

Yous know what mes has been doing lately?  When the Mom goes to read hers book before sleeps, mes curls up on the pillow on hers lap!  The Mom says hers really likes it when mes does that!  Mes is still sleeping a lot on the Mom's pillow when hers goes to sleeps, too.  

Mes likes to keep the Mom company.  Do yous hog sleeps on your human's pillow when theys sleeps, too?

Happy Gotcha Day, Carmine!

Dear Carmine,

I cannot believe it's been 13 years since you claimed me as your human as you sat in my lap in the PetSmart adoption center.  Little did I know then how much you would change my life.

Your crazy kitten antics have helped keep me sane during difficult times.  I love your loving, loyal spirit.  Your protectiveness of me and Lita helps me feel safe.  

Your loving heart is something that I admire.  Your love for Jewel was clear every time you supervised her sub-q fluid treatments and every time you poked your head into the kitty cubes to check on her.  Your love for Lita is apparent when you stay near her when she doesn't feel well.  I know she feels protected and loved by you, as she chooses to stick close to you when she feels very crummy.  Your love for me is apparent every night when you join me on my pillow for sleep, when you visit me to "help" me with my article writing, and when you watch over me when I'm not feeling well.  

You truly are one special mancat, and I m so blessed and grateful that you choose me, of all people, to be your human.  

We love you, Carmine, and hope you have many, many more Gotcha Days to celebrate with us!

Happy 13th Gotcha Day, Carmine! 

The Mom and Lita

Mancat Monday

Hi everyone, it's mes, Carmine!

Last week, when the Mom was vacuuming, mes decided to hide in here.  Mes was safe from the vacuum monster in heres.

Litas told mes that mes is going to the vet tomorrow to has my "butt squeezed."  Mes thinks hers is trying to scare mes.  

But just in cse hers isn' yous think the Mom will think to look for mes in here if mes hides here again?

Thankful Thursday


Hi everyone, we are joining Brian's Thankful Thursday blog hop today.

It has already been in the 80s several days this month, and both Lita and I are very heat sensitive/intolerant.  The heat makes me feel quite nauseous and dizzy, and I get overheated very easily.  Lita looks like she's just miserable when it's hot, and I feel terrible for her and try my best to keep her cool.

Last year, management warned everyone in the building that we must have a brace of some sort in order to use our window air conditioning units.  Most of us didn't have one, including me.  So, this year I had to get one before I put in the air conditioner.  The first one I got was missing instructions and parts, so I had to take it back and get a different one.
