Simon


This is Simon, Kim's new baby! As most know, she found him wandering around outside, hungry and lonely. She had been wanting a new kitty. So, long story short, Simon added himself to the family. I'll let Kim tell the long version of the story and tell you his purrsonality traits, etc.

Good morning! Hi Simon! You are such a handsome boy! You look so much like my Marley! I can't wait to see him as he gets older. I wonder if he will get oranger w/age like Marley has. And Simon! What big FB's you have!

Claire said...

What a beautiful boy. We had a Simon (Says) so, of course, I love the name too. Love his coloration and glad you found him to give him a loving home.

momsbusy said...

kim - simon is such a pretty boy. you are so lucky to have him adopt you. i hope you have many momory making days ahead. love those faint stripes. can't wait to see him as he gets older too. hint hint.

Emma's Kat said...

Manny's back!!! Yeah!

Kim said...

GOOD MORNING ALL! Good morning Simon, my love! You wouldn't know it to just look at him, bu this fur is like silk! I've never felt fur so soft! The vet thinks he's between 9 months and 1 yr. He's a Flame-Point Siamese. His eyes are incredibly blue and very crossed. He's is so beautiful and so full of love!!! He weighs 9 lbs and next week he will be getting his little snip, so I expect that his weight will shoot up like Oscar's did. He loves to be carried around and is very much a lap cat. I hope you enjoy him today! Thanks for the comments, he really is a love!

Deb said...

Good Morning Fuzz Packers! I love Simon, he is just beautiful. Wish I was there to give him some kisses! Congratulations on your new kitty. He must have "googled" you because he picked a wonderful home!! Grace & Company send "meows" out to everyone!

momsbusy said...

it is with a heavy heart that i must take the sweet little kitten my husband found to the spca today. the petsmart option did not work out. the adoption agency only takes in those on death row as they do not have the facilities needed for found and unwanted babies. my daughter is also so sad. she has cried her little heart out for three days because my husband has said no to keeping the kitten. ironically, she is mad at me for not changing his mind. go figure!

someone say something to make me smile PLEASE!!!!!

riquel said...

Simon is a handsome boy. I don't think I have seen a flame point siameese before. He is really pretty.

Momsbusy, I am sorry to hear about the kitten. I sadly don't know what to say to make you smile. I am not familiar with the SPCA, are they the same as the Humane Society?

Emma's Kat said...

Momsbusy, I so wish I could come get her!!! But...I do know, at least here in VA, the SPCA will find her a home. She is a kitten and old enough to eat on her own as well! Usually the SPCA will hold on to kittens and puppies longer, because they know people want to adopt babies vs. adult pets. So, No worries Shirley. I'm sure she will find a loving home. I had to turn a puppy into them once and they gave me, I guess you could call it a reference #, for him. I was able to call and check up on him until he was adopted out. I'd call every few days to check on him until one day they said he had gone home! So definately ask about doing that.

danielle said...

Simon is a beautiful boy. I love his tail. He is such a good looking cat. You are very lucky that he chose you to be his pet.

I am sorry to hear that the hubby won't keep the kitten. Hopefully they can find him or her a home.

momsbusy said...

thanks everyone for your encouragement.

riquel - there are the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty of Animals.they are suppose to have a no kill policy but i am not 100% sure. i have seen animals there before that had been there a long, long time but you hear rumors. i told people i know about her but no one wants a kitten right now. bummers.

she has started becoming less shy and meows when you come into the room. she also wants attention whenever she sees you. head butts w/ her tiny head (so cute) and belly rubs (so fun). she is so precious. i noticed last night her body has diluted color hair. she has a v shaped orange stripe under her chin. it is so cute. i am going to miss her.

danielle said...

Casper and Amber's mom How is Amber doing today? I hope she is feeling better. Please let us know.

Good Morning Fuzz Pack!!!!!!!!!!!

Gheeri's Servant said...

Oh, so sorry Shirley. She was such a pretty girl. I don't know if they are all the same, but on Animal Planet, the Animal Cop shows.... some of them are the local SPCAs and they do put them down. I dunno. There aren't any little no-kills by you?

has anyone heard from Danielle????

Meowmepurr's Mumma in Washington State said...

Good Morning Fuzz Pack!!

KIM-Simon is Just Beautiful! He may be a Siamese, but he still qualifies as a Gorgeous Gingers, if he wants to be in a club! My dear Thomas looked a lot like him--and he was a real character!

MOMSBUSY-Best wishes to you, think positive thoughts. Cute kittens like that find forever homes.

Purrs, Prayers and Huggles to Danielle and Jakey, Monica and Amber!

danielle said...

I was just reading the rest of the comments from yesterday(so many) and I really like the idea and the name also the web address. I would love to help in any way I can.

I WANT A T-SHIRT!!!!!!!

Emma's Kat said...

GS - How are you today? I'm sending the cow pix today! They are too cute!

momsbusy said...

my apologies, i should have asked earlier...

how's jakey????

how's amber????

gs - are you feeling better?

is there anyone else sick? i feel i am forgetting someone. i thought someone else said they had what gs had. must be having a senoir moment.LOL

danielle said...

I made a big comment on my site about Jake.

GS I hope you are doing better today. The attitude seems to be a little better thatn yesterday. For everyone. I hope.

Gheeri's Servant said...

Thanks everyone. I was soooooo stressed yesterday, but it's better since I know we can stay in our home a little longer. Then I can get Squeaky to the vet and what not.

I was up until 2 am unable to sleep from all the coughing, so any typos/grammatical errors/craziness/slowness is a product of that.

Loa said...

hi u Simon my sis had a boy he lookd just like u his name was Billy boy and he was a lover i bet u ar a lovert to hugs and xxxxxxxxxxx oooooooo Hey momsbusy good luck w / the baby dont know her but i miss her to lol if u want to can give your hubby away lol WHERE IS MY T-SHIRT ?

danielle said...

Monica,
Where are you????????

Meowmepurr's Mumma in Washington State said...

DANIELLE-- Give her a break--it's not even 8 out here on the Left Coast! Maybe they got to sleep in(HA!)

I left you a post this morning--love your site!!

KIM--I keep coming back to see those beautiful crossed eyes!

Deb said...

momsbusy, I wish I lived near so that I could help. I'm sure that the little one will find a home. Or, you can do what I did and simply "overrule" your husband! My husband often says "how did we end up with five cats" and I reply "you blinked"! Now he loves them as much as I do! Good Luck! Meows from Grace & Company.

momsbusy said...

deb - i overruled him on all the ones i have now. LOL i am not in the position to argue the point right now. he doesn't know it but when the time is right i am going kitty hunting. muuuhahahahahaha!

danielle said...

Meowmepurr's mumma,
I forget where everyone is. I am just worried about Amber is all. I replied back to you. I am going to call URI and see if there if they do anything like that.

momsbusy said...

i just can't get over how handsome simon is. love his coloring and his eyes. i am a bit partial to saimese as i had quite a few when i was a child (many years ago).

Gheeri's Servant said...

Oh, yeah, I guess it is kinda early over there.

haha, sorry for stealing the pic again, Dannie! It was for a good purpose :)

I love Simon. I was going to post him when Grace & co. came along and I posted them instead.... I've always been intrigued with the odd-colored Siamese, like lilacs, flames, and tortie (yes, there are tortie-point siamese!).

katnippia said...

Good Afternoon, everyone !!!1
I just love Simons coloring. He's a very handsome boy. He knew a good home when he found your house.

Momsbusy- SPCA is a no kill, as far as I know. I'm sure she will find a forever home very fast.

Ok, I hope everyone who has not been feeling well, is feeling better today.

Mannyed said...

Hellllooo Kat!

I have so much catching up to do...the pictures of those cats are sooo cute, each and every one of them. I have to check out this ginger cat thing u got over here.

Karen C. said...

I love the faint orange coloring - especially the stripes on the tail. How lovely that he adopted you! Do they really gain weight after "the snip"? Does that apply to girls too? Simon's such a handsome boy!

Bluejay said...

Kim, congratulations on becoming Simon's human. He's adorable. And it is flattering to be chosen, isn't it! Especially by a sweetheart who could probably get any cat-lover he wanted.

I'll bet when "Simon says..." everybody pays attention.

Momsbusy, I really sympathize with your daughter. Once you've fallen in love with a cat there's no going back. When I was in grade school there was a beautiful stray ginger cat who hung around our house. He liked me, and I wanted so much to keep him but the parents wouldn't hear of it. The Humane Society came and got him and I never knew what happened after that.

As far as I know, the ASPCA does try to get animals adopted. I hope they find the kitten a good home soon.

Gheeri's Servant, I hope you're feeling better!

Still sending good wishes for Jake and Amber.

rosie(taking no prisoners!) said...

...HYAK..momsbusy...get rid of your husband and keep the FuZz.....
and make sure your daughter knows who's to blame.............

..ahem...Simon is sooooo leggy.....

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Simon is very striking, in an understated sort of way, if that makes sense. Love those faint stripes, pink ears and nose, and beautiful blue eyes.

How is Jake doing? And Amber?

I am feeling better today, but the cough still comes back at night.

Looks like the "double trouble" twins may have found a home. Yeah.

Kim said...

That's great ML! I hope they have found their forever home!!! I talked to my husband about Grace but he says we just can't right now. Springing a new cat on Oscar was hard enough, to give him a double whammy might cause some emotional damage. I don't know about that, Oscar is so laid back.

Yes Rosie, Simon does have long legs. I can't seem to get a good picture of him though. You don't get an idea of how crossed or blue his eyes really are. He is a LOVE though!!! I know, I've already said that. LOL!

Karen, yep! When a boy cat gets snipped, he will gain weight. I don't know about girls though.

I forgot to mention how Simon came to pick us as his family. One day he came into our garage. All he wanted was to be pet. The kids were in bed and Alan was gone so I figured, what the heck. I sat down and loved on him for a while. I got his some food and off he went. A few days later he came back and we repeated the process. I called Alan and we talked and he said if the cat was there after a week, I could have him. So Simon walked into our garage and into our lives!

Still waiting to hear about Amber!!!

Karen C. said...

Rosie - I'd take a Fuzz over a husband any day!

Karen C. said...

ML - the twins have a home? Tell me more!

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Uh-oh, hope I didn't let the cats out of the bag. Hee-hee.

It's just in the talking stage. Debra has been in communication with a Fuzz Lover who is considering the perfectly matched set!

Hopefully someone in our Fuzz Pack will take them. Don't see how anyone could resist "double trouble twins". I would help pay travel expenses (out of state if necessary) if it would keep them in the Fuzz Pack. If any of you, wonderful Fuzz Family, is interested, please get in touch with Debra ASAP.
If I was a homeowner, I would take all three. I am a bit partial to Momma Grace. She is so peaceful and well, graceful. She needs a chance to be a kitten herself.

danielle said...

Jake update on my site.

Bluejay said...

Karen C. - There's an old joke that goes something like this:

I got a cat for my husband. Sometimes I really miss him.

Karen C. said...

That's great Bluejay!

danielle said...

Is anyone else having problems with my blog?

rosie(giving orders to d.) said...

....HYAK.PTOOEY............I certainly am...........duzza.......explain Jakes condition right here.........



DISCUSS JAKE.

danielle said...

The vet said the blood work will not be back until 5. He also said Jake is doing worse than the other day. He haas been vomiting and not eating. The vet said he might be past the point of being fixed. I am going to see Jake tonight and stay until the doctor returns from dinner at 6:15. I hope so desperately he is wrong. Jake is my baby. I favor him over everything. I wish there was something I could do. Maybe if I got him to the vet earlier. I should have. I won't know for certain until tonight. Please let it be fixable.

I have to go now I will let everyone know tomorrow what happens.

I hope Amber is OK.

danielle said...

I think I fixed my site.

danielle said...

I have to say before I leave Simon I just sooooooooooooo cute. Thanks for sharing him.

Rose said...

Good Afternoon FuZZ Family!

Kim, Simon is SO HANDSOME, what coloring! So that's a Flame Point
Siamese...I've heard all the terms, but the one coloring I know about-but don't know what it's called!-is with black points and dark tan body? I had a horse with those colorings and he was discribed as a Buckskin!

Danielle, as always you can include me in with the prayers and support we all share for you and Jake...

I've been wondering about Amber, too...

Momsbusy, I'm with Our Rosie...*heh-heh*...ooohhh Why is being that way??!!! Now, if he had My Mother for a wife, she would say "go to the store for some kitten food, the baby needs some, 'cause she's STAYIN"! My dad always said he had the last 2 words in our household..."Yes, Dear..."!!

There was a sicko comment on TDK first thing this AM, signed "So what's it to you?"...I don't think it was there 20 minutes!! Hooorah!Kittenmaster! But now James has me worried...(...the Good James...I don't think the imposter will be by again -- "What's it to ya?" sounded like the bad james...)

So, My David stopped by at noon with Pad Thai and some sort of smoked pork that came with a chili sauce that had just the right "ooommffh", if ya catch my meaning...he suprised me, because I thought we were going to drive over...I mean, I was taking down plates than wondering if I'd actually WASHED them last time I wsed them, or just rinsed them! Then I realised David just wanted for us to eat out of the containers, so it was fun and picnic-y...I didn't smack him upside his head, because his new job-which is in the next town over, really, sounds so custom-fit for him. He has 2 courses to finish, and he'll have his Masters in Special Ed! I'm so proud of him!! He'll be working with kids coming out of prison-having done felonies...it's part of the probationary process, and since he has his B>S> from John Jay Scool of Criminal Justice, this is Custom Fit for him, at this tie in his life...'Course, I cried myself into a Migraine last night and am headed there again, but God Knows Best. He's going to be the turning point in some kid's life. He was in mine. He's the person who kept me out of the homeless shelters...taught me how to trust myself and others again, made it possible to have my own apartment again and geenerally helped me heal.
Deb, between this post and the post I made on TDK, I hope I'm still Brutus and Marigold's new mum, but if you think better of it, I'll understand.
Oh well, think I'll find a quiet spot for awhile...must be a planet in retrograde or something, yechhh!
Chat later...

Kim said...

If you get this before you leave, thank you Danielle. I think it's sweet of you to comment on Simon. I am worried about you though and wait to hear from you tomorrow. Email me anytime. Take care fuzz sister!

riquel said...

The girls get pudgy too after they get spayed, all my girls are kind of tubby, they take after their mommy :o)That's okay though cause there is more to love! he he

Kathleen said...

Kat,
Have been down with some kind of respiratory infection, but was able to log back in, something was just off. Rosie the Rose is doing well, though still some box...or rather not box issues.

Gheeri's Servant said...

Rose, you're so silly, thinking that your posts make you a bad person. You're great, and you deserve Marigold and Brutus as much as any of us, if not more!

Rose said...

Thanks GS - I just wanted to keep the door open without prejudice, because I have lost people who I considered my closest friends when my Depression presented itself, and I learned that it's no one's lack of caring or anything, it's kind of a fear of facing the possible death of a friend and being afraid of that, so they separate from you for self-protection. I don't blame anyone, it's understandable. Also, people who don't have an understanding of mental illness carry certain, uh, "preconceptions", the most prevalent is "Snap Out of It!" One friend told me that in a phone conversation from the hospital, and I said, agrily (depression is anger turned inward, but briefly, I let it fly) "I didn't snap INTO this, I'm Not going to 'snap OUT of it'" When I was in David's Transitional Housing Program, it was near a Wal-Mart my friend Dot used often, As it happened! I felt someone walking very close behind me, since my legs were getting worse at that time, I stepped aside, and she quickly went by - yeah, my friend Dot. I was going to say something to her, than thought better of it. That's just the way things are...I'm recieving excellent treatment from the most gifted doctors, and medically and emotionally feel fantastic. I can have lows, like David moving, but I'm not morose about it...he calls me a "survivor" - and I AM!
For a reason our Higher Power knows, and I'm to find out!
I feel a huge ache today for all of the ill Fuzzez and their people, I wish I could do something Hands On to help...My Candle's lit, and my energy is focused on good thoughts...we'll all be okay...I believe that!

katnippia said...

Rose - I have to agree with GS. That does not make you a bad person, and you do deserve both Marigold, and Brutus. to share there kitty loves, and kisses with you.

Simon, you are just a handsome boy.

I had to catch up on the post today,I got a job that I work from 1 - 9, and miss everything. But lots of kitty prayers and loves to Jake, and Amber

Karen C. said...

Rose - Maybe you can't do something "hands on" for the ill fuzzies right now, but you're certainly doing the ultimate "hands on" assistance for two tiny homeless fuzzies coming your way! By the way, I'm close personal friends with Depression. My other acquaintances, Anxiety and Panic Attack, haven't shown up recently, but every now and then they find me. I have A.D.D. and find that it's a constant struggle to try to balance the imbalances. On the bright side, it is NEVER boring inside my head!

Emma's Kat said...

Jake Update!! I just spoke w/Danielle a little bit ago. She said the doctor told her things were not good, but that he was a little better. He had eaten and she wasn't sure of the name but whatever they tested the level of in his body when he had crystals last time was this time, 12.2, but had gone down to 8.4 now. So his eating and that were good signs. He's still at the vet and they still don't really know what's causing his illness. She will not be into work until 9am tomorrow and will post then. She thanks everyone so much and is grateful, as we all are, to have our Fuzz Family!

Deb said...

ATTENTION ROSE: Of course Marigold & Brutus are yours. I agree with karen c, I too have met Depression, Ansiety & Panic Attack! I think the world should be on antidepressants:)! Don't you worry, these kitties will be coming to you soon. I'm taking Marigold in to the vet tomorrow, depending on her weight,the vet will let me know if she is "good to go". So, Mommy Rose, get ready for the fuzzies!
DANIELLE: We are keeping both you and Jake in our prayers!

Deb said...

One more thing, well actually two:
Brutus & Foster don't have a home yet, I haven't heard back from Kathy in Virginia. ML, still hoping Grace will live with you :) -- you and she were mean't for each other! No pressure :)

Deb said...

Well, heck, can't spell --- meant MEANT! LOL

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Rose - I was diagnosed with clinical depression as a child. Have been on meds all my life. I also have POST from an event a few years ago. Trust me, I wish I could snap out of it. "Snapping" has nothing to do with it, it is totally an imbalance of chemicals in my brain.

Don't worry about anything, the tiny kittens are looking forward to meeting their new Mommy.

Again, still hoping one of the Fuzz Pack would want the twins, Pete and Foster, to come live with them. Please talk to Deb if you are interested.

Rose said...

Yo Guys!
First, I need to thank you all for your understanding, sharing and love - Kat's site just 'oooozzzes'
"Good Vibes"! I KNOW it's a healing site...we're all so "there" for each other!

Hey Deb, THANK YOU-THANK YOU-THANK YOU AGAIN!!! I showed their pictures to David today, and although he'll be busy packing and all, he's excited about picking up my FuZZbabies! I told him, "Now, we have to take lots of pictures, the plane coming in for a landing, the staff bringing out the carrier" etc, etc. and I will MAKE Uncle Davey hold the babies, since I never got a pic of him holding Emily...!! He thinks they're really cute, and he asked me in a whisper, "Uh, have you told HER yet?" pointing over to Emily, who was trying to get in his lap...she likes to lick his underarms! Sounds like the imposter on TDK, doesn't it, but it's TRUE! She'll meet them soon enough! Pics of that, too OF COURSE!!

Karen, you're too much! Yeah, never a dull moment in the old cranium! I found a few websites, you may already know about them. My favorite one was www.peopleforanimals.net. Seems they have locations in many states, including NJ (where I went for help for Emily. You can find the NJ location at http://members.petfinder.org/~NJIT/index.htm, then theres SPAY>USA http://spayusa.org or 1-800-248-SPAY. The location for People for Animals in Hillside NJ doesn't have a website of it's own, but you can call and speak with JoAnn at 908-968-6887. Oh, and as if by magic, I got an e-mail yesterday from www.hollowpot.com/customshirt
for - wait for it - T-SHIRTS!

Whew!!! Since there's a thunderstorm just outside my window (I'm SO EXCITED!!!) I'm gonna shut down until it passes...

Later...

Kim said...

Rose, I'm Bipolar. Not something I generally share. Some people freak out and think I'm going to go bonkers on them. It doesn't work like that. Anyway, I take meds that work well for me. I have a Doctor that monitors me closely, and I have a good support network. Having the people on this site has done more for me than anyone could know. I lead a normal life. I still don't really give myself any credit but you just can't change 37 years of living and thinking one way. My biggest improvement, I try very hard to think positive and look on the lighter side of life, even if I don't feel like it. Sometimes I slip a little but the big thing is that I know when I'm slipping and can work to change that too. You're in good company here. I hope you never feel alone when you're with us. And for the times when you feel alone, log on and just read comments past and see all these great kitties and I promise you'll start to feel better. I'm sorry David is leaving. You said he will be in the next town, I don't see this as goodbye, I'll see you later sounds more like it. :)

Rose said...

Mary Lynn...I feel SO bad about Pete and Foster...you kow, David's upstairs neighbor just had to put his cat to sleep, and this Dude took Great care of his cat...know how I know? He asked David if he knew anyone with a cat, he had a new bag of food, unopened. So David said, "Yeah, I Do!" David tells me "it's not the brand you feed her, but she should like it"...It's Science Diet! I looked at David with my eyes bulging and said "This is good s***!" I'll e-mail David with the e-mails where he can see The Twins - it's worth a try!!

Rose said...

Kim - EVERYONE!! I LOVE YOU ALL VERY MUCH! Thank you...

casper's mom (Monica) said...

Hi fuzz pack. So sorry I am checking in so late. Had to go to Chico which is fifty miles from home to get my allergy shots. Yes, I am allergic to cats. Also trees, weeds, grasses, so I said the heck with it, I'm enjoying my pets regardless. Amber is doing fine and taking her medicine real good. Like someone said, dogs are easier to take meds. Also did some chores while in the "big city." When I got home I was so tired I took a nap. So much going on. I hate to say this but Cleo is not feeling well. She has been isolated in the bathroom today and she isn't minding it. She has not eaten since yesterday. If she is the same tomorrow guess there will be another trip to the vet.

Jake, baby I am so sorry to hear about you. Hope you get better soon. Prayers still going up for you. Danielle, so sorry you are going through all this.

casper's mom (Monica) said...

So sorry Kim, your Simon is so cute. Ooops handsome. He is such a beautiful color. I can tell he has blue eyes because of the red in the eyes in the one picture. So very glad that Oscar is getting accostomed to him. They make great brothers. Would love to pet Simon.

Kim do not ever apoligize for being bi-polar and you are not bonkers. I have had trouble with depression a good portion of my life and if it wasnt' for the meds I couldn't function. What some people cannot figure out is that a brain is an organ and things can go wrong with it just like a lung, kidney, heart and whatever organ there is in the body. Mine is a chemical imbalance in the brain, in which I think bi-polar is a chemical imbalance also. I was diagnosed as manic-depressive many years ago, which is bi-polar but it wasn't called that at that time, but never had the highs. Finally got a good doctor who finally listened to me as I was always in the depressed mode.

God Bless you Kim.

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Possible Good News: Charley's therapist, Mary, just came by to take him to exercise. I gave her the printouts of the twins and Momma Grace. Not sure if it is Mary's sister and/or girlfriend who is looking for a cat or cats. Explained the twins situation. She will let her know tonight, gave her Deb's home numbers. Keep your fingers crossed, Fuzz Pack. Oh, keep your claws crossed, Fuzz Pack.

Casper's Mom: So glad to hear Amber is doing better, was really concerned. Tell Casper and Cleo Missy sends little kitty nose kisses (MBE is famous for those).

Rose: Thanks for spreading the word, maybe your neighbor would consider the twins (it's whoever speaks up first!) and/or Momma Grace.

I haven't met the cats yet, but am looking forward to it on Sunday. We have had two days of flooding here in Houston, didn't want to get Charley out in the car. We have a bayou (part of Brae's Bayou) right outside our front door, it has been up to the top. We have started to see UGH snakes.

I know I am going to fall in love with Momma Grace, I already have. Just not sure we can keep her. Who knows, Sunday I may kidnap, er, cat-nap (that sounds wrong) the whole lot of 'em. Sorry Rose, j/k.

Bluejay said...

Rose, MaryLynn, Kim - I hear you! I have fought depression off and on (more on) for about 40 years. I can't stay on medication because it knocks me out. I understand about the lack of support from friends, too. I couldn't even get any from relatives.

But we always have cats, right? And they have pure hearts like all animals and never judge.

Rose, congratulations on the additions to your household. I hope you and your own personal Fuzz Pack are buddies forever!

Danielle, it was good to hear that Jake is a little better. Still pulling for you.

casper's mom (Monica) said...

Mary Lynn, was just checking comments. Hadn't seen yours about clinical depression. My, My we have other things in common here in the fuzz pack. So good to know that we aren't the only ones. Ooops, feeding time around here. Amber is looking at me with her big brown eyes and telling me it's time.

God Bless you also Mary Lynn. God Bless the whole durn fuzz pack. This is weird, I am crying right now and all of you have made my day. You are all caring of one another. Thank You.

Kim said...

Hi Monica, have been wondering how Amber was doing. I'm glad she's being a good girl and taking her meds!

Yes, bi-polar is a chemical imbalance. I have had both the manic highs and manic lows. Mostly it's been the lows for me. But I can tell you, the highs are like a drug and I just wish I could always stay that way. I was misdiagnosed as being depressed for many years. The anti-depressants would only take care of certain problems. Finally a doctor told me that she thought I was actually Bi-Polar. Turns out she was right. I can't tell you the relief that I felt. Just knowing that there was a name to what I had been going through all my life!

I want to thank everyone for the nice things they've said about Simon. He is so sweet and I just wish you could meet him! And Oscar for that matter! ML, I just know you're gonna want to take that sweet family home with you. I really wish Alan would let me have Grace. I love kittens but really rather adopt adult cats. Who knows, maybe he'll give in, I doubt it, but lightning may strike.

A few of us were chatting about this new charity organization. How many of you would be interested in chatting/IM with the Fuzz Pack? We use Yahoo IM services, they're free.

alohahelper said...

Kim, thanks for sharing Simon with us. He's beautiful! We had Pumpkin neutered last month and the hardest part was withholding food and water from him beginning 6 p.m. the night before the surgery. It's very hard to say "sorry, you can't have anything" when he's hungry and crying to be fed. He was very woozy when I picked him up in the afternoon, but by the next morning, he was back to normal as if nothing happened.

I'm glad Amber is improving and I hope and pray that Jake improves too.

good news fuzz pack (sort of). the precious little kitten went to her forever home yesterday evening. while babysitting my daughter, my mother fell in love w/ the little fuzzle. she called my dad yesterday morning after i told her i would be picking her up at lunch to take the baby to the spca. i just worry that if my dad's health gets worse little kitty may not get the attention she deserves. they have 3 cats already. kitty (still has no name) will be slowly introduced to sandy (yes i will send pic of him) and become his playmate. i have mixed feelings - my mom was so happy to take little one home but i just know if anything happens to my parents i will inherit 4 babies now!

Momsbusy - That's great news! You'll still get to see the little baby and she'll have kitty friends and loving people.
