Thankful it is Thursday....

Mom has decided rather than have one of "those days", she is going to have one of "those weeks". She just can't seem to get it together.

Sumatra and Phoenix went in for surgery this morning. The tech told mom she could leave, but mom asked them to weigh Phoenix just in case....he was JUST 2 lbs.  :)

Oh - in the previous post, we said that Sherlock is FeLV positive, but mom decided she should tell something about that. He is actually very healthy, but has to live in a home with other cats that have it since he could "give it away". Mom found this online:
What does FeLV do to a cat?

Feline leukemia virus adversely affects the cat's body in many ways. It is the most common cause of cancer in cats, it may cause various blood disorders, and it may lead to a state of immune deficiency that hinders the cat's ability to protect itself against other infections. The same bacteria, viruses, protozoa, and fungi that may be found in the everyday environment—where they usually do not affect healthy animals—can cause severe illness in those with weakened immune systems. These secondary infections are responsible for many of the diseases associated with FeLV. (from Cornell Vet University)

And mom woke up to a surprise this morning - Junior was spread out sleeping next to her. He jumped up and left as soon as he was discovered, but she laughed just the same. Besides, how could you not love that face???


  1. Purrs for Sumatra and Phoenix!

    And yes, that's an adorable face peeking out from under the covers. :-)

    BTW, tell your mom it's okay...our mom is having one of those lives. MOL!

  2. {{Sumatra and Phoenix}

    Awww Junior you are so adorable.


  3. Healing woos to Sumatra and Phoenix that they mend quickly and are not tortured by the cone thingie. Nothing better when you are having a rough week than someone furry to snuggle with...yeah! Junior. Hope things get better heading into the weekend!

  4. We hope Sumatra and Phoenix's surgeries went well!

    Junior is adorable under all those covers!!

  5. Oh Junior, you are so cute! Purrs to Sumatra and Phoenix.

  6. Mom's first kitty had this before she even knew what it was. He was a big Tuxie Tom and she just loved him. His name was Eugene.

  7. That adorable face peeking out from under the covers makes me squeeee!

  8. He reminds me of a polar bear, that face, even though he isn't white!


We love to hear from you.....
