Our mama is in the hopsital 😦
She has a heart infection and has been in the hopsital for three weeks! We’ve only seen her twice since May 8. Mama says she has endocarditis.
Mama is sad that she hasn’t been able to update our blog for such a long time and promised us that she would update for us today.
We aren’t sure what she can tell you since she’s only seen us twice but we can tell you that the first time she came home, all three of us went crazy. Here’s what happened to our family when Mama came home:
Shadow: I was in my crate when Mama got here. She made noise in the driveway and so I barked because that’s my job. My boy Daniel went to the door to open it for her and when I looked and saw her, I started dancing in circles and whining doggy noises. Mama saw me and almost cried because she was so happy to see me! She came up the stairs and asked my Daniel where the cats were; I’m not sure why she asked about those two because they aren’t as important as me. When my Daniel said that one was in the bedroom (the nice kitty, Boots) but he didn’t know where the other one was (the evil kitty, Stripey), Mama said okay and then she opened my crate door. I danced out to see her and was so excited that I was dancing in circles again, twisting around her and through her legs. She was talking baby-talk which my Daniel says is silly but he doesn’t know how much I love it. Mama gave me kisses and hugs and held me as I danced around; of course, I gave her lots of puppy kisses and slobbered all over her glasses and she just laughed. Finally, my dancing wore me out and I was dizzy from the circles and so I stopped. Whewf! After that, I decided maybe I should go find that evil cat and try to chase the evil outta him but Mama said no way and so I calmly went into my crate because I am such a good girl. Doggone that cat – I’ll chase him one of these days and hopefully get the evil outta him. And remember, I love my Mama and she loves me bestest.
Boots: I was in my Daniel’s bedroom when I heard Mama. As soon as she got her fill of puppy love and slobber, she came to see me and I was so happy to see her that I started meowing her about it. She laughed and picked me up so I purrrrred all over her and gave her head bumps and rubbed my face ‘gainst hers, so she’d remember that she was mine. Eventually, it was time to get out of her hugs because it was getting hard to breathe, so I hopped outta her arms and decided to walk. I followed her to the kitchen and then into the other bedroom and finally, downstairs because that’s where Stripey was. My goodness, she kept walking around and it got hard to keep up with her! Mama was all over the house, doing stuff that wasn’t important in my opinion. She should have stopped and let me sit on her lap. Eventually she did and so I gave her more kitty head bumps and rubs. That Stripey insisted on being first and rather than fuss and upset Mama, I gave in. I love my Mama and she loves me bestest.
Stripey: When my Mama got home, I was doing an inspection downstairs. Since I’m the only boy in the house besides my boy Daniel, it’s my job to keep the house safe. Mama was so proud of me doing my job and I was so happy to see her face again that we both startedmeowing and talking and I was purring my heart out. I’m not much for hugs, so of course, I didn’t let her grab me. My favorite type of affection is to follow her and twist between her feets and wait for her to sit down so I can push Boots off her lap because her lap is mine and doesn’t belong to Boots. No matter what Boots or Shadow say, I’m the favorite around here. When Mama finally sat down, it was time to make sure that Boots knew her place and let me sit on the Mama lap first. Mama got lots of head bumps and I rubbed my face against hers to remind her that she was mine. Since my affection-limit is shorter than the other kitty’s, I eventually let Boots take her turn. I love my Mama and she loves me bestest.
Sooner or later these next couple of weeks will go fast – she is supposed to be in the hopsital for a total of six weeks! That’s a long time in puppy years but our boy Daniel talks to her on the phone and after he is finished, he tells us that Mama sent kisses and hugs for all three of us. All three of us! That confuses all of us because we each think that we are loved the mostest.
Well, we will ask her to update our readers after we see her again.
Boots, Shadow and Stripey
