Tuxie Toes Tuesday with Cousin Trooper


I'm trying to snooze here.....sheesh....what's the fixation with my toes?  Oh yeah....they are super cute!!

I wanted to update you on my Mom.  She's not doing very well at all.  There is a hospital bed here now and she's sleeping most of the time.  I try to stay as close to her as I can.  I'm afraid she's going to be leaving me soon and that makes me sad.  Please keep purring and praying for her.

This post was pre-done over the weekend.  My heart is hurting because my Mom went to the human Bridge yesterday at 2:05.  I will miss her very much.  The Furkids Mom let me see her and told me that everything would be okay.  Thank you all for your purrs and prayers over these last months.  My Mom would always smile when the Furkids Mom would show her your comments.  The Furkids Mom is hurting a lot now too, she was friends with my Mom for over 20 years.

Isn't this a beautiful graphic that Ann from Zoolatry made?  My Mom was so happy when she got to meet Ann and Maggy and Zoey.


I'll be okay.....I actually have a new, very wonderful home with a good friend of my Mom's and will be an only cat.  I was going to go with the Furkids but this is even better.

The Furkids wanted to let you know that their Mom knew things were happening fast and pre-planned lots of blog posts.  They may not visit a lot in the next few days, but they thank you all for your support.

I am so sorry you lost your human, Cousin Trooper. I am sending lots of purrs your way, and a lot of purrs to the Furkid's human too because I know you are both very sad. We are sad too because in a small way, Auntie El was family for us too, as are you. I'm glad you have a good home to go to, where I am sure you will be spoiled, and I hope you will be able to visit every now and again.

Cousin Trooper, I'm sending my best comforting purrs to you and the Florida Furkids. I'm SO glad you got closure with your Mom. When TW's Mom left us, Autumn was on the pillow next to her and had to be forcibly removed when they came to take the body. Autumn had closure and would've been a very happy kitty for the rest of her days if she'd had the chance to stay an only cat like you are. Purrz and purrayers to all.

I have nominated Friends FurEver for a Sunshine Award If I wasn’t already a fan of this blog, Ellie’s and Allie’s birthday party and the fantastic Cinco de Mayo party with sombrero nip cookies and meowgaritas would have been enough for my kitties to beg me to make this nomination. I hope you will accept. You can read the details at http://www.thecatonmyhead.com/sunshine-award-acceptance/. Janet
