Thankful Thursday.....

First, we want to say we are purrin' for those in the southern US that are having all those tornados. It seems very scary and we can't imagine losing our house.

Swizzle came home last night. Mom has her in an airline crate for now - which mom swears was bigger until she put a box, a blanket, 2 bowls and a cat in it. :)  Swizzle was lovey but didn't eat too much. The nice v-e-t left the feeding tube in just in case (though mom says that no one has any idea why it was put in - even the rescue lady doesn't know - seems the surgeon made a decision without bothering to ask anyone). Swizzle will go in Friday morning for blood work and they will take the tube out then. Mom gave her something different this am and she ate a little bit. We shall see how she is doing by the time mom gets home. Swizzle has to stay in the crate until the tube comes out so she can't get it caught on something and pull it out by accident. Paws crossed.... Mom was very proud of us all last night - we knew the crate was in the bedroom but basically left Swizzle alone and didn't growl at her or anything.

The kittens are still doing well. Mom just wishes they could tell her what they want. Midori was awake at 3am SCREAMING. Mom fed them all with the syringe and that helped, but Midori still screamed some when mom went back to bed. But, they are eating the food she is putting out - mom just thinks maybe they aren't eating enough to satisfy their bellies. And here is what we would all like to know - how can something  THAT tiny make THAT much noise for THAT long???? Wow - that girl has some volume. :)


  1. when my mommy and her son rescued Coco (whose picture is on my blog) she was 2 weeks old and we just could not get enough into her..she hollered and shouted all night long and day too. We were constantly there with her bottle. :-) She was worth it. We loved her so much. By the age of 3 weeks, she had a mommy and grand mommy who adore the air she breathes and hand fed her till she got all grown up. She lives there now like the Princess she is.

  2. I sure am purring for that sweet Swizzle! Those little ones are just so cute!!!

  3. Me and Charlie are purring and praying for sweet Swizzle!! We are glad she's with you and home now!!

    Awww the kitties are so lovely!!

    Our thoughts too are with those affected by the tornadoes - awful news. :-( Take care

  4. Swizzle we are keeping you in our purrs and we are so happy to see those glowing kitten faces.

  5. We are still purring for Swizzle. We think she will do well now that she is in your care ;)
    As for the tiny kitties with BIG noises , Mom knows about that.
    When Mom adopted Mickey at 10weeks,she took him home then drove 2 hours to visit her Mom. Mickey howled the whole time :o hahaha
    Mom sends you her sympathies ,heehee

    Purrs Tillie and Georgia

  6. We are purring hard for Swizzle. The kittens sure are cuties! Minnie had a set of lungs on her when she first came and she was a couple of weeks older we think, so our mom can relate!

We love to hear from you.....
