Kitty cure-all

Well this is day four of the flu, I have not left the house since work on Monday.  I feel awful, not only sick, but behind schedule on everything; shopping, decorating, wrapping!  I'm usually finished my Christmas shopping by now and I've hardly even started...I don't know where November went!!!  Thank goodness we got the outdoor lights up last weekend or there would be nothing done.  Anyway enough of my complaining.  At least I can lie around with my laptop and do some blog visiting between bouts of sleeping...except of course for yesterday when Casper chewed through a cable in the basement so there was no internet for the entire day until Robert got home from work and was able to fix it.  I posted all of two comments from my iPhone then gave up because it was too difficult and the screen is so tiny.  Casper is a compulsive chewer and despite the fact that we cover cables and cords to the best of our abilities, occasionally he still gets to one. 
a healing circle :-)
The one good thing about being home sick is the kitty love.  They lie on the bed all day and keep me company.  Three big lumps of love sleeping, purring, stretching and frankly hogging all the space :-) However, today is different, there might be four.  Robert and I decided that things are going so well with Jimmy's integration that we will let him be out for the entire day and see how things go. 

There has been very little kitty love from anyone yet, just loads of galloping all over the house.  Jimmy has jumped up on the bed a few times to see me but running and playing with his bros seems to be much more fun at the moment.

We are sending big get well soon purrs!
From the mum- aren't cats the best? When I had surgery on my jaw, Lishy was 6 months old and still very small. He took on the role of heat pad, and was much more effective than the microwaveable ones :)

Hannah and Lucy said...

We hope all the kitty cure-all medicine will have you up and about soon. It would seem as though Jimmy is fitting in very well so you'll soon have a bigger dose of get well snuggles.

Hope you feel better soon. Glad Jimmy is getting some "out of the room time". Before you know it, things will seem like he has been there forever.

Kea said...

We are sending HUGE doses of purrs for you to feel better! The flu is nothing to mess with; you rest and DO NOT push yourself. Except to feed the Cats. heh heh!
We're looking forward to a picture of all four on the bed...we think it'll be soon!

I hope you will be feeling better very soon. All the kitty love and company should do the trick.
Glad Jimmy is getting along well with the bigger guys. Being a kid takes a lot of time and energy! Maybe he'll get tired out and join you on the bed for some cuddling.
Tahe care! Sending healing thoughts your way.

I'm SO sorry you're sick and now, as a result, behind. Of course, I'm very glad you have your kitty nursemaids - well, mostly nursemaids (and one little wild man who is still finding things to explore).

Brian said...

My sisters and I all send you purrs and we hope you shake that flu bug! It's nice to see that Jimmy is adapting nicely.

Sending you lots of healing thoughts. I have been sick since the day after Thanksgiving. Just can't seem to get rid of the cough. Lots of kitty therapy is the best thing!

CCL Wendy said...

Well, if you're going to be sick, this is definitely the way to do it -- surrounded by kitty love.

It's fantastic the way that Jimmy has adapted so quickly; and the others to him!

Get well soon, Cat!

By the way, why don't you save yourself some time and do your Christmas shopping online. I do all of mine that way. And it's so much fun when the stuff arrives at the door. This year there've been so many great deals online, too!

Sparkle said...

Kitten energy rarely pauses for sick humans! But since I am a grown-up kitty, I have time to send some warm, healing purrs your way!

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

I hope you feel better soon! This is the worst time of year to be sick, isn't it?

Your kitties are so sweet to keep you company. Little Jimmy looks like he's not so little anymore!

Caren Gittleman said...

may all of the "kitty love" you are receiving make you well real soon!!!! (((((hugs)))))

Au and Target said...

Poor Cat! We're purring for you sweetie! Maybe if Casper turns his attention to purring for you, it will distract him from committing general destruction :-)

Cory said...

We will purr for you to get over the flu soon, but we know you are in good paws! Nothing like purr therapy.

Hooray that Jimmy is playing with his new brothers...a tongue bath can't be that far away.

Your healing circle looks so relaxing. Isn't it funny how they know when you're not well?
