Caturday Cat Art and Sedona


We're joining Athena's Caturday Art Blog Hop

We're using one of the photos from our Sedona trip today.  We used the Painnt Toon effect and the Shaped Tinted Border from LunaPic




See more Caturday Cat Art HERE.

On the last full day in Sedona, Mom and Dad went to Jerome which is an old mining town.  They both had difficulty with the altitude there so they didn't stay too long.  

On the way they stopped at a place for breakfast.....Mom and I shared roasted pepper and spinach eggs Benedict!  Yum-a-roo!

I took a selfie at this place.....can you see me????


 Sooo......what did those two crazy kids do after Jerome?   They drove to Prescott to visit a radio station.....yep...you heard me right.   They used to listen to this station when it steamed a few years ago.  The station got overloaded when a similar XM station went off the air and stopped streaming.  As soon as Mom and Dad get to AZ they tune the car radio into KAHM.   Now the station is doing a paid subscription service and Mom and Dad can listen on their Internet Radio!

Here I am on the sign....


Look at all these CATS!!!!


We all got a nice tour of the station while we were there.  They even took us to an old bomb shelter that was part of the building when it was moved there.  They have BAZILLION record albums there.  Of course, the music is all digital now

One of the parts of the tour was telling us that the station had a cat for years.  When the cat went to the Bridge, they didn't feel it was good to get another one....but here's the BEST part.   The founder of the station started the Yavapai Humane Society!!   HEREs a link to their Facebook page too.  

Needless to say, this is the way the day ended.....or so they thought.......



Unfortunately, that night Dad had a seizure and ended up in the Sedona ER  He has a history of seizures but has not had one in 7 years.  The EMTs and ER doctor all agreed that the high altitude had an effect on him...plus a bit of dehydration and his seizure medicine level had dropped.  That was not the best way to end their vacation.  Mom was grateful they were at the Cozy Cactus because the people there are like family.  They were a huge help to Mom during that scary time.

How awful that your male human had a seizure at the end of such a lovely trip. My human saw on Facebook, and I've been purring lots for him.

Whoa! Sorry the dad got sick and frightened the mom. Pop used to work at a radio stationand one of the things he did was he was the record librarian.

You really do get around, don't you. We love how the evening always seems to end with a glass of wine.

We're purring for your dad.

It looks like they had a good time until your Dad had the seizure. We are glad that they were somewhere they felt comfortable when it happened. Healing purrs to your Dad and lots of love to your entire family.
