A Mothers day update............

Today in the UK it is mothers day. Grandma's Christmas cactus that flowered with so many blooms at Christmas has today surprised us with a single bloom just in time for mothers day.Happy Mothers day grandma, we miss you so much. To my mum happy mothers day xxxxx Now for my update. KC over at the CB made me this lovely graphic.. Thank you so much. Thank you everyone for caring, purring and woofing for me as I know it helps. We have had so many suggestions and have tried just about all of them. dad has sat with his fingers dipped in cat milk and I have licked it off. I then have drank some on my own. Mum and dad chopped up best ham into tiny pieces and dad put some right into my mouth. I ate that and since then have eaten more ham. This meant I am getting the medication.Mum and dad thinks I am looking brighter. I am at the moment just eating a little ham but that's a start. They went out and bought more of that and are also trying everything else. They are hoping that the medication will ease whatever is bothering me and let me eat properly. I haven't eaten this morning yet but hey ham yesterday is a start. Thank you everyone and keep those purrs coming please. I love you all... Happy Mothers day to all the mums..... Love and hugs GJ xxx


welcome to my world of poetry said...

Pleased you ate some ham GP, It;s a start on the road to recovery,
Hope your mum has a Happy Mother's day, only my daughter remembered the two sons to them it's just another day, one out of three I can't grumble.

Take care of yourself

Marg said...

Glad you ate a little ham GJ. That is a start like you said. We just need you to eat some more food. Hope the medicine starts working soon. We are still sending tons and tons of purrs. We have our paws crossed too.
That cactus flower is pretty. Guess what. We have the very same thing on our cactus that is ancient. Hope your Mom has a great Mother's day. Take care GJ and eat.

Happy mother's day to your mum GJ! I have always maintained ham has healing qualities and now I've been proved right.

Hannah and Lucy said...

Starting to eat with some ham shows us what a discerning mancat you are GJ - we are delighted to hear you have had some medication.
Now remember it's Mother'a Day GJ so eat some more ham for your mum today.
We wish your mum a Happy Mothers Day.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Brian said...

We all love you GJ, have some more ham and then some more of anything else. You can do it, you're GJ!!!

Brian said...

Oops, I meant to say Happy Mother's Day to your Mum too!

Max the Quilt Cat said...

Good Morning... yup GJ... good to hear that you ate some of that ham... Please, please eat lots more today. Sending you purrrs and all my very best thoughts...

san said...

It is good that you are eating GJ, even a little. When I was very sick with lymphoma, my mom had to feed me with a syringe. It was the only way I would eat. Keep up with the ham :)

Simba said...

GJ, I hope you continue to improve and eat even small amounts. Your cactus flower is lovely! We have two at our house, one red one which came rom my Mom's mom too, and we remember her by it. The other one is pale pink and my humans got it after my Mom's sister died, so it is one way to remember her. BOTH are blooming now for your UK Mother's Day!!!

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

Very nice graphic, GJ. You know you are in our thoughts and prayers - we want you to be better.

Happy Mother's Day to your Mum - now give her the very best present and eat well today.

Happy Mother's Day to your mum, GJ!

And we're glad to hear you're eating some ham. We hope you continue to eat some and take your medicine. We want you to feel better!

June said...

Hiya GJ, I'm furends with Sagira...I sure hope you're feeling better soon... it's not fun to be sick and certainly no fun to have no appetite. Do you like hotdogs? I can ALWAYS eat one or two of those! BOL...

I the words of a dog trainer... heal!

~Hotdog Junie

Mason Canyon said...

Hope you're feeling better soon. When Little One (in the photo) was a kitten and sick the only way we could get her to take her medicine was in baby food. She still loves it, especially the chicken flavor. Maybe that would help. Take care.

Happy Mother's Day to your mum!!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Happy Mother's Day to your mom, GJ!

Pattyskypants said...

Hey, GJ, U gotta EAT man! Sorry to hear U R not feelin' so good. Me is sendin' all kinda purrs ur way to get better! xxoo bhu

Sweet Praline said...

I'm happy to hear that you ate a little ham, GJ. I'm purring really hard for you.

I'm not eating as much the past two days myself.

Kari said...

You've started to eat a bit! Oh, dear boy, this is so wonderful!!!! Each bite ,however small, is a start. And your dad putting milk on his fingers for you to lick: if love alone could cure, you'd be all better already. But you need your food and medicine to be strong and healthy again. We wish your mum a very happy Mothers Day. She is an extraordinary person, Ginger Jasper. People of such kindness and gentleness are rare We believe the single bloom on the cactus is your grandmothers way of telling you that she is with you during this difficult time and to believe in your own wellness. Lots and lots of prayers for you.

Mr Puddy said...

Please eat some more Miss GJ,
I keep purring for you from my heart to keep you well. And paws cross for you.

And Happy mothers day to your lovely mommy

With Luv and Purrs

Simba said...

I think for SURE that your one bloom is a sign from Grandma. We find our one from our grandma blooms at her birthday, and now it is very close to the anniversary of when she died 33 years ago. Our plant has been renewed by taking cutting several times, and it continues to be just lovely when it blooms.

GJ, I do hope you are going to get better. Purring here.

ABBY said...

That is a very good start and we hope this trend continues for you to eat, one bite at a time.
Happy Mum's day to your Mum!

Father Tom said...

Happy Mother's Day to you, too! I like Mother's Day in April!
Ginger Jasper, this is my first visit to your blog and you are beautiful and it sounds as if you are feeling better, too which is sooo important!

Hang in there, enjoy the ham which sounds scrumptious and have a good week!

Happy Mother's Day to your mum. We hope you get a good appetite soon, and whatever bugs are at your insides go away. Take care and get lots of kitty naps.

Everycat said...

Poor Ginger Jasper. we are so sorry you aren't feeling well. Please eat up lots of ham if you can. Have your Mum and Dad tried some Hills AD from the vet? This is a high calorie food which you can warm up in the microwave for a couple of seconds, it really smells and tastes good! We hope the vet can find out what is wrong with you soon sweetie and you recover quickly!

Big rumbly purrs to you!

Oooo, Ginger Jasper. Ham; yummy. "The Boys" and I are glad you're eating a bit to at least help get that meddie down.

And happy mum's day to your mum.

Note to Mum...I'm wondering if it's possible that GJ is eating during the night or at other times when you don't see him eating?

Amy and The House of Cats said...

GJ we are glad you are eating a bit. We know so many of our other blog friends (including us) have gone through this kind of thing and come out ok in the end, and we are purring that you will too. We say if the ham is good see if there is also some ham baby food you might like (we have used that in the past and it is popular with the sickies). We are still sending you so many purrs and prayers to get better quickly!!

Cheryl, Indiana, Shingo and Molly said...

We are sorry that you haven't been feeling well GJ! Sure hope those meds have you right as rain soon! Hugs, prayers, and kisses!

We're finally back! We sure have missed you!

Woofs and Kisses!
