Yikes!!! We just had a 5.6 earthquake in San Jose. I and my brother and sister went crazily running around the house during the shaking. Mom just kept on telling us it would be okay. She didn't even get up out of her chair or stop watching the tv! We're all in hiding now.

Mom here, that was a strong one. I haven't felt anything that strong since Loma Prieta in 1989. I felt helpless to calm the cats as they ran around in fear. I have no idea where any of the poodins are except for Kali, my 18 year old who's asleep on her mat in front of the tv. I hope the aftershocks don't bother us much.

Poor Sophie must really must be dizzy from taking her pain meds and now this shake-up. Speaking of the angel, she's doing well. She won't keep her e-collar on. I don't know exactly where she is, but I think she's under my bed. After I gave her pain meds at 6 pm, she disappeared. It'll be good once she's healed and I won't have to worry so much about her.

Sophie Is Doing Quite Well!

Your prayers worked. I should have had more faith that they would. The doctor commented that she's never had a more stable a patient. Thank you everyone who said a prayer or sent a warm thought. I honestly felt calm this morning, and usually I'm quite a mess.

Everything went well. She's awake and feeling no pain right now. I'm able to get her as soon as 4 pm. They're going to give her a soft e-collar. The V-E-T wants me to keep her away from the other cats for 5 days. Gosh, that would be hard. I would have to keep her with me, for both her and my frame of mind. The other cats won't get as much attention from me with that set up. I'll play it by ear. If she's needing a lot of pain meds and she's groggy, then I'll definately keep them away. Or if they want to hassle her at all, they'll be removed from my bedroom.

Last night, I made them all start fasting at 9 pm. At 2 am I had Jake on top of my bed screamming at me for food. I swear he has a hidden meezer inside him. He can make very annoying demanding meezes. Of course, I'm the sucker mom who obeys nearly his every wish. He keeps to a regular schedule, so I understand why he felt it necessary to tell me that I was neglecting my duties in the middle of the night.

Thanks again for your thoughts and prayers. I'm very very greatful. You all deserve hugs. I'm sure Sophie has some sweet purrs for you all also.
Love Lynn (Tyler, Sophie, Jake, Cookie and Kali's mom)

Hey, everyone, this time, I decide to start this cherish meme, here are some ways (depends on which person you write), and bring our love to Miss Peach~! She always makes us know what love is!

1. tell us what is the most sweetest warm thing you will do to your mommy (what is the sweetest thing that your kitty will do to you)

2. And, hug your mommy, tightly... (and, hug your kitty....tightly...)

3. Tag your good friend...

4. Leave your computer, and continuing hug each other...

Jeter Harris tagged all his friends, so that's who tagged me. I am my mom's snuggle bunny. If her arms and lap are free, I'm there to warm her heart with my purrs and headbutts. If she's in her big brown chair, and her lap is filled with her MacBook, then I recline above her head. Whenever mom looks up at me, I place one paw on her right shoulder, reach my head down, snuggle her cheeck and purr deeply into her ear. She reaches up and scritches me behind my ear. Others may sleep in my spot on top of the recliner, but I'm the only one who uses our secret snuggle. I'm in my snuggle position right now, purring away awaiting mom's signal. What I'd really like is for her to put that laptop down so I can lie down in her lap. Hurry up mom. Miss Peach, I'm purring away for you. Please feel no pain. We love you.

We tag anyone else who loves Miss Peach and hasn't been tagged.

Sophies Vet Visit

Poor Sophie was aghast to return to the v-e-t yesterday. She needed to get what mom thought was the last of her kitten shots. Turns out that mom procrastinated so long about getting them done that the vet wants to give her another shot of distemper and lukemia. That's after having her surgery on Tues. probably when they remove her stitches. Mom's feeling guilty for not realizing that the timing of the shots was very important. Poor Sophie, who normally doesn't make a peep was wailing during thw whole ride in the beige machine. She trembled and tried to hide during the visit. Mom still worries about what Sophie is going to think when she's taken to get her garden removed on Tues. I think mom will feel better once it's all over. If you're able, please send Sophie a few purrs on Tues. am. She's being dropped off at 7 am PST.

Thank you and Toodles,

I Don't Do Costumes

I thought my mom knew me well enough to not attempt to humiliate me this way, but I was wrong. I explained to her that no amount of "pretty pleases" or Temptations or even pieces of chicken will get me to sit still and allow her to put that thing on me. Not only do I not wear clothes, but I would never tolerate being turned into a PIG. I'm the thin one around here. There isn't anything pig-like about me. My sisters Kali and Cookie are the piggies around here. Mom, didn't even try the costume on them. She was afraid she'd lose a hand. Just Jake and me, but we both ran around the bed like we were on fire. She got the idea that we DO NOT do costumes. Okay mom? You can just buy us prizes for being so cute with your own green things. Um I think we need a couple of more Millie type beds, another Whirly bird, (Jake broke the last one.), lots of those dried fishies, dried chicken, dried turkey and dried beef, and any toys that theyr'e selling at the Siamese place. OK mom? You owe me for just trying to put that pink thing on me.

I will leave the costuming to you, my friends.

I'm so sorry I've been gone for so long. It's you know who's fault. She hasn't been taking pictures and she has been feeling a lot of pressure at work so I didn't even dare ask her to help me with the blogging. As it was, we barely got enough loving. Times are still rough, but I'm trying to get her to lead a more balanced life. I hope to be to all of your blogs soon. I love and miss you all. Sophie is scheduled to go under the knife in the first week of Nov. She'll do wonderfully. I'll nurse her back to health (not literally).

Bye for now,

Sophie's Operation

Hi there everycat, it's me, Sophie! I'm here this morning to tell you my very bad news. My mom says we're going to the V-E-T today to talk to him about having my "garden removed." I don't know what my garden is, but I think I'm just fine as I am. I don't want to have anything taken away. I'm very scared. I'm afraid it will hurt. Mom says it will hurt for a bit. She promises to take very good care of me...but still I'd prefer to keep my garden in place. Did any of you girls out there have your gardens stolen? Did it hurt? Do you have any advice for getting better sooner? Thanks in advance. I'll tell you when my big day is once my
V- E -T tells me.
