Thankful Thursday



Kitties!

The Baby here.
"Here" being behind the tomato plants, that is.

I have wonderful news: 
Mommy spoke with the Vet today, and Dr. Augustine doesn't want to see me until the end of July!  I am feeling so much better.  I'm back to playing and acting crazypants and being naughty and getting into everything and being bossy and running around like my tail's on fire, just like before I felt so ill.  Depending on how my blood work goes I may have to have another round of medicines--it seems that my gall bladder isn't working 100% any more--but the vet thinks my condition is manageable without surgery.  Paws crossed things stay that way...

And thanks to you, my pals (from all over the world!) the Extra Large vet bill and medications have been almost completely paid for!  As in, Mommy and Daddy only had to pay a little bit, and my total bill was almost fourteen hundred dollars...your generosity was (is) amazing.
A big shout out to Marg from Marg's Animals for being the World's Best Internet Auctioneer, and also to Ann from Zoolatry for designing the auction page header and badges.  
You ladies ROCK...

So I owe all of you the biggest THANK YOU, ever!
Your love, purrs, prayers, and donations warmed my grizzled flinty heart right down to the core.  
(and made Mommy cry a lil' bit)

It bears repeating that my/our Readers are just the absolute best group of folks in the world.
Thank you all, for everything.
I love you. 
Now, back to bird-watching.  I'm grateful to be here to do it!


Happy Thursday!

  12. The Baby, this is AWESOME news, we're so happy for you and your beans.

    And your mom (and the CB) helped us out with Derry's dental bill several years ago, and also with Toby the stray's neutering, which we've not forgotten. So we were glad to help in turn, even in a small way.

    Purrs and peace.
