Good bye

It's been such a long time since I've been able to blog for the kitties. I've felt guilty about it for ages. It was getting hard after my dad died to find the joy in blogging and then when I moved back out to California, leaving my beloved PB&J behind in Michigan, it made it even harder. I would check in on the blog from time to time and see all the lovely comments, but just never took the time to respond. For all those reasons I needed to say good bye, but I never took the time.

But now there is a real reason, we've lost the J in PB&J. Jake died this morning at 4:30.

He came in from his midnight romp in the garden with Pearl and Bert, had his treats and fell over with what the doctor assumes was a blood clot.

He died quickly and hopefully easily and was with his Daddy who was his most favorite person in the world - it's all we could ask for really.

Now he'll be cremated and laid to rest with the original P & B. His first brother and sister and the cats that raised him from the wee three week old kitten he was when I found him on a street 9 years ago.

So now it's time to say good bye to my lovely Maine Coon ManCat Jake and good bye to all of you wonderful Cat Bloggers. It has been a wonderful journey filled with great friends and fun - I loved laughing and crying with you all.

Thank you so much,
Mom Amanda, Pearl and Bert

Mommy's Home!!!!!

Wait, Jake! Do you see that? See that plane up there?! Mommy is on that plane - she's finally coming home!!!!

Yep, Mommy is finally coming home from her really, really long trip to Catifornia. And just in time for my Gotcha Day (even though she missed Pearl's Gotcha Day and My Birthday)!

She said that we shouldn't get our hopes up about blogging - sure we told her all about how it's been more than 8 months since we've been able to blog and visit our friends. But with Mommy losing her job and our Grandma out in Catifornia still being sick she's afraid that she'll still be too busy to help us. But we're crossing our paws that we'll get to visit soon.

We appreciate all the visits and thoughts since we've been gone - and Mommy promises to at least visit a little bit (especially our special kitty friends, I sure do miss my sweet little tea cup Tazo)!

Oh Man!

I had to go to the V-E-T yesterday! Who would have thought? Mommy wasn't home, so how was I supposed to know that Daddy was going to swoop in and grab me and take me off to the V-E-T!?

That big old mean V-E-T said that I was completely healthy and a big strong ManCat. And I made sure to show him by peeing all over them!!! Bwahahahahaha! And then, just to make sure that they got the message I pooped all over the floor and my carrier (Daddy wasn't too thrilled about that part). But at least the nice helper lady cleaned me up and told me how brave I was so I felt better.

Oh, and you shoulda have seen the look on my face when my Mommy got home. Boy did I give her the stink eye! In fact, it was such a fearsome gaze that I broke the camera (Mommy here, there does seem to be a problem with the card, I expect the camera will be fine with a new card - but it was a chilling gaze).

Floofy Friday

We've got something here - not sure what just yet!

But once we catch it, we're gonna take it to Mommy and hopefully she won't abandon us again. Actually we'd probably get her to stay if we didn't bring it back to her! Aw heck, she's probably gonna go to California and leave us here with Daddy anyway - we're gonna give this thing to her anyway!

Wet Weekend

Boy oh boy did we get a lot of rain this weekend - Mommy said that it rained "cats and dogs", but we didn't see any other kitties or pups. But there was a lot of water, see Jake can't even keep his feet dry!

It rained and poured off and on Friday and Saturday, we barely got to out at all. Thankfully there was a bit of a break and Mommy let us out for a bit to enjoy - we were so excited to get some time outside that we actually hung out together!
