It's all good

Miss Emmy seems to have recovered from her illness.

She is eating, a bit, still drinking, lots. She is walking around the house and watching her birdie friends.
Last night she was back on my pillow purring me to sleep.
She is coming down the stairs now for a visit.

Another Day

My poor kitty is still not too active, or hungry. She ate about a teaspoon of tuna but I can't convince her that cat food is good for her. She wouldn't drink any of the kitten formula either today. I gave it to the other cat and she wouldn't drink it either. Maybe it's slop!?
That said, she did come downstairs and climb up to sit behind my head on the LazyBoy. She purred a lot and meowed to me a bit.
I just wish she would eat more....

Little Emmy

My kitty is still in the land of the living.

She actually got off the bed and ate a few bites of kibble yesterday. M. picked up kitten formula on his way home yesterday. I gave her a couple of tablespoons mixed with warm water. She drank about half of it. She drank the best part of a bowl of water.

Emmy came downstairs and sat on the couch beside me for awhile then went back to her nest. Later, as I was lounging on the bed watching Coronation Street, she came in to snuggle up beside my head as she usually did, purring some. she lasted about 15 minutes then headed back to her nest.

I hope today is better.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Well we had a burst of Christmas spirit on the weekend. M. got the garland up along the beam and I did the tree. I was so happy to find my little box of bird decorations, though the blue jay is still M.I.A. I wonder if it got broken somewhere along the way?? I love the little birds on the tree. With that in mind, I'd like to put a tree on the side porch where all the bird feeders are. The real birds would love that.
I only have ONE person to Christmas shop for and he is a tough one. I know he occasionally reads the blog so I can't give any hints or secrets.
My old kitty Emmy is not very well. She didn't eat for two days and slept most of the time. She hasn't been tucking into bed with me either. In the wee hours this morning I thought I felt her jump on the bed, but she wasn't in her usual spot. Then I got thinking that maybe she had passed away. Part of me wanted to go looking for her but part didn't. When I walked out of the bedroom this morning she was walking down the hall to greet me. She has also eaten a bit of kibble and had quite a few drinks today. She wants nothing to do with the canned food, so perhaps she just had a bit of a belly problem? She was using her litter box through the down days, so I know she didn't have a blockage.
Poor old thing is pretty old so we are worried.

Baby it's cold outside

The controversy over all these songs is driving me MAD! I read an article pulling apart about twenty well known Christmas/Holiday songs for dubious lyrics.

None the less, it is COLD outside here this morning. The temperatures have been hovering just below freezing here for a week or more so getting up this morning to this chill was a bit of a shock. I sure didn't want to get out of bed. Either did the cat! Oh well, they are cozy now. I'm on the couch with a nice cuppa tea and an afghan. Don't you love a cozy afghan?

I'm feeling quite a bit better but really not wanting to go out in public places with all the crowds and their germs.  I'm sending M. to the post office with the last Christmas parcel today. I still have one for my baby sis birthday but there is not a rush on that. She doesn't celebrate Christmas and her birthday isn't until after the New Year. I love filling a box with little things I know she will love.

A Negative Post?

Now doesn't that just pique your interest?

I'm sicker than a dog right now. I've been feeling just a little off for a few days, then woke up this morning quite ill with some respiratory thing. It's not the flu, that's the sure thing. The symptoms are like severe allergy. Sneezing and headache, sinus pain. The only thing I can think of is that I've been sorting out my rooms full of CRAP, and there is some dust flying.

I sat down and made a list of who I still need to find a gift for. Then I went on Amazon and ordered a multiple of the same thing.  These people will LOVE this gift. I'm just too tired and worn out to shop.  Most of my gifts are home made, or hand made by local crafters. These two folks are most difficult to find an appropriate gift. As an aside, I ordered myself some pumpkin spice coffee creamer. I haven't been able to find it around our town anywhere.

A few weeks ago I bought a very useful gift for the great grandson. Do you think I can find it? It's a rather expensive item so I'm a bit ticked with myself for misplacing it.

I'm off to an early tuck in. Going to take a nice big mug of hot tea and lemon...
