World Cat Day 2010 and Purrs and Prayer Request

*** Mom found a bump on the back of Sniffie's neck and is worried. She's got a call in to the V-E-T and hopes to get Sniffie checked out on Monday. Please send purrs and prayers that it isn't anything bad. Thanks! ***


Let us all celebrate ~ World Cat Day.

Celebrate kitties in your own special way.

Those here and near, and those now above,

all the kitties so dear, all the kitties we love.
Sunday August 8, 2010


We are re-cycling last year's World Cat Day post because we really wanted to honor those who came before again.
We don't want this to be a sad post - it's a celebration of some of the furry cool kitties Mom has known!


Cory was Sniffie's littermate...


Uriel - our first Birman. Uriel was a red point and was a sweetie! Uriel would give a Paws Up to World Cat Day!! Little Uriel had FIP and went to the Bridge at a very young age.

Uriel when he was a kitten - snuggling with Baschert

Tabriz - Mom's Flame Point Himalayan watching over little Baschert.
Mom's first Himalayan - Khartoum. Khartoum was Tabriz's daddy. Mom says she was WAY TOO tan in this picture and had on some VERY intense eyeshadow! We say she was WAY younger too!!

We hope you didn't mind seeing Cory, Uriel, Baschert, Tabriz and Khartoum again. Mom promised each one of them (and us too) that they would always be with her. Each one of these special kitties has a purrty urn and they are all part of our home. Many thanks to Ann of Zoolatry for the wonderful graphic for World Cat Day.

It was wonderful to see the Cats Who Came Before. Since we weren't around the CB, we're seeing them for the first time.

A very happy World Cat Day to you all and lots of purrs and healing Light to Sniffie--we hope it's just benign. Paws crossed all will be well!

We can't think of a nicer way to celebrate World Cat Day, than honouring those hoo have gone before. Beautiful cats are way too special to ever be consigned to history. Have a wonderful day.

We are sending HUGE rumbly healing purrs for Sniffie ~ and praying too.

We enjoyed seeing the ones that came before! Happy World Cat Day to all of you!

And we are purring for Sniffie and we hope that the lump is nothing serious.

I love seeing the kitties before! I find that most humans, unless they are very, very young - human kittens, in fact - have kitties who came before.

Paws crossed that Sniffie's lump is nothing serious!

How wonderful to see your beautiful kitties...gone but not forgotten, always in our hearts!

FIP is a tragedy, I'm so sorry that it touched you and Uriel.

Happy World Cat Day to one and all!

PS - sending good wishes to Sniffie :-)

We enjoyed seeing the other cats. They were beautiful and I think it is always fun to remember the ones that used to be here. And it is a great way to celebrate World Cat Day.
And we do send lots of prayers and purrs to Sniffie.

It's wonderful to remember the Ones Who Came Before, and what better day than World Cat Day! You kitties had some beautiful & handsome predecessors, but you're keeping up the "cute" reputation easily.
