Hello Friends,

****Please note, Saturday morning I managed to fix things!!!!!  YAY

I have been away from blogging for quite sometime and Blogger has changed a bit in my absence.  Today I seem to have inadvertently deleted my "About Me" button/gadget from my sidebar and I can't get it back.  I can't even add a gadget/field anymore...any suggestions from my more practiced blogger friends?

The boys are very angry with me that I have messed with their blog.

Here's Ben giving me the accusatory paw and Jimmy looking unimpressed with my ineptitude - LOL! 


Mancat Monday Massage

Hello friends,

I attempted to post this video on my facebook page but sadly only the audio came through.  I thought I'd try it on the blog and see if I fared any better.  Here is Casper enjoying a nice massage on his furs from the vacuum :-)


Please be so kind to tell me if you can see it.  Thank you!


Ben's Gotcha Day and other news

Hello friends, it's been a while between posts again because things have been very hectic here at Cat's Cats.  Robert slipped on the ice at the end of January and broke his leg in two places, this required surgery for a titanium rod to be inserted into the bone.  He was in the hospital for five days then home for two weeks and quite unable to do things for himself.  He is much better now thank goodness, zooming around on crutches and back at work :-)

During that time we missed Casper and Archie's Gotcha Day on February 9, (2008 and 2010 respectively).  Lots of dear friends remembered but had to go all the way back to January 22 to find a post to leave their comments!  Thank you so very much.

Then today I look at the calendar and realize that it is Ben's Gotcha Day already (2009)!!!!  I am so very lucky to have these delightful cats who enrich my life every day.  It's hard to believe that the years pass so swiftly, it seems only yesterday they were wee.

probably dreaming of tuna


Stay warm friends!!!


Happy New Year!

And so it's time to reflect on another year that has come to a close with alarming speed!

2013 started off with breast cancer and a fourth surgery.  It was determined that the lumpectomies and tissue excision was not working and the situation could not be saved.  Thankfully my lymph nodes were clear and I did not require chemotherapy or radiation, I felt so very lucky about that!  I underwent a double mastectomy with immediate reconstruction in a five and a half hour operation.  The recovery was estimated at twelve to sixteen weeks but really it has taken me almost the whole year to feel like myself again.  I had a little complication that required another surgery in February and a lot of trouble with my shoulders as a result of trauma to the general area, but weekly physiotherapy has helped me tremendously.  Then just when I was gleefully preparing to say good-bye to 2013 which has been the most difficult year of my life (next to 2011 when I lost my brother), and looking forward to my birthday and Christmas, things got worse.  My beloved father died quite unexpectedly at the beginning of December.  My family is bereft beyond description.  We are fortunate however to have each other, so many people are alone this time of year and I could not imagine coping with this kind of loss by myself.  Our Christmas was subdued but we were together and the bonds of love kept us going.  It is with a heavy heart that I ring in the new year but I would like to wish all my cat blogging friends who are so very dear to me a happy, healthy and prosperous 2014 filled with love and many blessings.

Here's to a new year, with new possibilities for all of us :-)

lots of love,
Cat and the cats xoxo
