This and That Thursday...

First some sad news. Mom stopped last night to talk to the rescue lady. Swizzle ran for the Bridge. She had some ups and downs but was comfortable. She stopped eating again and the rescue lady was going to take her back to the vet - but she was already gone when the lady went to check on her that morning.

Run free sweet girl - you are safe and healthy. We loved you very much in the short time you were here.

The rescue lady did say the kittens are doing well - they are WILD AND CRAZY!!! They can be retested in a couple of weeks so we are hoping for the best.

Speaking of tests, Chiclet was dropped off this morning. She was supposed to go tomorrow but this came up and it is cheaper for the rescue. So, hopefully we will know more this afternoon.

And now for the baby update:
No new kittens yet - we were trying to catch them last night but they didn't show up for dinner.

Mom spent more time on the floor with the girls. Audrey was out and let mom hold her. But, the BIG news is Lucy. Mom bought new treats. Audrey likes the crunchy temptations. Grace will eat anything. And Lucy likes the moist treats. The only ones we had were a little old so mom bought some new. And Lucy loved them. In fact, not only was she eating them from mom's one point she got lovey and was rubbing and mom and....she PURRED!!! OMG! Then she kept banging her head on mom's hand for attention and even rolled over for a belly rub. Mom stayed in the longer than she planned just to absorb the love.

Of course, she needed the carrier back so she found a box and converted that to the new kitten house. When she went to move Lucy, she pinned her ears back and hissed at mom. Oh well.....take what you can get we guess. :)  This is Audrey and Lucy in their new digs.


  1. I am so sorry for precious Swizzle. I am saddened by her passing. I hoped she would get better and be able to hold her own.

    I love how well the kittens are doing and they are so dear to see.

    Goodbye sweetheart Swizzle. I loved you.

  2. Oh, we're so very sorry, more than we can say, that Swizzle had to leave for the Bridge. But we're glad she knew love in her short life, poor sweetie.

    Hurrah for Lucy! She's making great progress!

  3. Oh Swizzle. Sweet brave and wonderful Swizzle. Me and Charlie are so sad to hear she's gone. She was very very very brave!! Thank you for giving her so much love in the short time she was here. We're glad her kitties are doing wonderfully!

    Awwwww!! Audrey, Lucy and Grace!! How adorable!

    Purrs for Chiclet!!

    Take care

  4. Oh Sweet Sizzle has gone to the Bridge - she will be free from pain there and run free. We thank you for your care of her.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  5. Farewell sweet Swizzle until we all meet up on the other side. I look forward to that day. Thanks for all the loves you gave your humans and your kits. And thanks to your humans for giving you great care and loves.

  6. Sweet Swizzle, we are so sad that you have left us. We all loved you!!!

  7. Oh, that makes us very sad about Swizzle. But at least you saved her kids and she did know love at the end. We are just glad she got to be with you for a short time.
    Those kittens are too cute. That Lucy is going to be such a strong cat. Nothing is going to come after her. Take care.

  8. We are sad to hear the news about Swizzle. But she knew you loved her and cared for her and her kittens. We are so glad that she had you. We know that not every kitty can live to a ripe old age, but we are grateful that she knew kindess and goodness in short life.


  9. Oh, we are sorry to hear about Swizzle :( It's a blessing she had the chance to know love.

    The kittens sure are little cuties! Sounds like good progress with them. Purrs,

    Pip, Smidgen, minnie, and hollie

  10. So sad for Swizzle, but glad she got to have your love, if only for a short time. Thank you. We are purraying for her kittens. Run free, Swizzle!

  11. We're so sorry to hear about Swizzle! We know that she'll never forget the love you showed her -

  12. We are so sorry to learn that Swizzle is at the Bridge. You gave her love and she knows that.

    And we are happy to hear that the little girls are making progress. It sometimes feels like one step forward, two steps back, when it comes to working with feral kittens.
