Toeshee Tells All
Lots To Share
Hi everyone, it's me Toeshee! We have had a couple of rough days here, but some things are better now.
Billie wasn't feeling well since Monday afternoon. She had not been eating and just seemed more tired and irritable. Momma of course was very worried. Then Momma had a bad fall when she tripped to avoid stepping on Cody's tail. She landed on her tailbone against the bottom step of the stairway. (why do beans have tailbones if they don't have tails?) She thinks it's just bruised and the fall hurt her joints in the wrists and hips too. So, she has been hurty and worried and weepy since Monday evening.
The good news is that Billie seems to be better! It seems she has some seasonal allergy issues and was just kinda stuffed up and couldn't really take interest in food. Momma jumped started her appetite with tuna and small bits of ham that she hand fed her. This along with sips of water and lots of lap time seemed to put Billie back on track. She is now eating normally and she is not sounding all snory and wheezy when she sleeps.
Today when Momma got the mail she was very happy to find some beautiful cards from her friend Helena! Helena lives in England and is a super talented artist. She loves cats too. We think the kitty in the card reminds us of Cricket and also a little bit like Daisy's sister Pixie. The lacy looking layers are painstakingly put together with glue. Aren't they amazing? If you want to purchase anything that Helena creates just click on her Creating a Likeness link on the side bar. She has her own little online card shop and even does commissions of pictures of your beloved furbabies. The pictures Momma took do not do her work justice. She also loves me; Toeshee the adorable young mancat! I hope she likes the picture of me in the window. HI HELENA! :)
She is my human girlfriend. My true kitty ladylove is Jelly Bean though. I think she is the cat's meow! Her blue eyes are sigh worthy...
Huh, what's that Billie? Oh Billie says she and Cricket and Cody are going to start teasing me if I don't chill. Fine, whatever!
Anyway the cards cheered Momma up a little bit, but she is moving even slower than ever. She is sitting on the sofa with two pillows propping her up. She is just so grateful that Billie seems okay. There are other family stresses going on, but as long as she has us nearby Momma feels better. Oh, and she's not mad at Cody or his tail or anything. Accidents happen and she's glad she didn't step on it at least.
We hope you all are having a great week and we send Hugs and Purrs!
