Mommy Monday


 Mommy is gonna be out of commission for a few days, having her Hiss removed.  We're looking forward to that! 

Mommy:  Guys, I'm having a Hysterectomy, not a Hiss removal.

So we don't forget what she looks like while she's at the VET the Hospital we decided to post a picture of her.  TWO pictures, in fact!

There are SEVEN things different in these pictures.  Can you find them all?

We have a little prize, and you don't have to answer correctly to win!  Just leave us a comment and we'll do a random draw when Mommy gets back to blogging, probably early next week.

And kitties?

Can you send a purr for our Mommy on Tuesday morning?
We appreciate it TONS!

Your mommies ears and shoes are different...and and...the orange kitty is in differet places...and mommie has a clown nose in only one pictures and her fake kitty ears are different (but we appreciate she's trying to look like you). And smile and no smile! I mean how could she not smile when holding both of you!

  8. My kitties will be purring hard that everything goes well, and your Mommy has a speedy recovery!

  9. Our Mommy had her hiss removed too a couple of years ago, but she still hisses!!! We're sending big purrs to her!

  10. Your human tried to TRICK us - there are MORE than 7 things different in the two photos! But of course we kitties are too smart for her. But no matter, I will be purring for her anyway for an uneventful spay and a quick recovery!

  11. 1. Fat orange kitty moved
    2. Clown nosey!
    3. Sweet Pea--The Baby

    7. Extra ornament on desk (to right of bookends

    My Human still has her hissy ladyparts (well, except for her gall bladder; is that a lady part?) but really she has no use for them anymore.

    I will be purring and purring for your Mom. The Human is not a very good purr-er but she will do her very best.

    She knows efurrything will go well for your Mom, specially with Dr. Puddy on the job!

    We will miss you all soooooo much! Please be very good girls and boys, and snuggle and comfort her, but oh-so-very gently.

  12. Good luck mommy! I didn't notice the kittehs were different till I saw the tails!

  13. We will say prayers for your Mom . We hope she has a very speedy recovery. With Mr. Puddy helping I am sure things will go smoothly.:)

  14. We shall be purring for your Mom, and expecting updates from you kitties. Äiti got spade many years ago before any of us knew her but she has assured us that she became a nicer person afterwards. We cannot imagnine your Mom being any nicer as we have been watching just how lucky you lot are. But you have to be nice to her for a while (Äiti says) - especially no piling on the bed all at once.
    So we are sending loads of purrs to her, and paws are crossed. We hope it all goes well xxxxxx

  15. All the best to your Mummy! Will keep all paws (and fingers) crossed that the surgery goes smoothly and that your Mummy makes a quick full recovery!

    XoXo....Whisky, Cosmo, Ling and Mummy! :)

  16. Good luck to your Mom! This must be the week for these operations, our Mom has another friend who is having one this week. We will ramp up our purr engines. xoxo

  17. Those are clever photos with the differences. The most fun part is the switching of the kitties! Here's purring for an easy time for your Mom with her surgery, and tell her to take it easy afterwards!!

  18. Good luck to your mom with her surgery to remove her hiss!

We look forward to hearing from you guys when your Mom comes back a her...without her hys (get it: hys=his!! MOL) Seriously though, you guys be good and you'll get lots of extra lovings and you'll need to give your Mom lots of lovings when she gets back so that she can heal even do know that humans heal faster when we purr for them and when we lay all over and around them when they are sick and/or healing.

  41. Cool post, and we found all the differences, but so many have answered before us, and our main concern is for your mama.....we are purraying/praying for her.

    Our mama had this surgery many, many, many years ago, so she can totally relate........she loves you Trish (and so do us boys)...and as she believes so strongly in prayer, she will be praying as mightily as she can.

    Love to all of you from all of us.

  42. Yes, we will be thinking of your mom! Like Judi, above, Mama also believes in prayer and will be praying for her that all goes well and she heals quickly. Love the pictures and since so many pointed out all the fun differences (and since Mama is lazy), we'll just leave it at that. Best wishes to your mom. Y'all take real good care of her when she comes home!

  43. Mommy had her hiss removed a long time ago and said it was the best thing she ever did!!!
