Visit and updates....Remembering friends....

Hello everyone, as you know we have had visitors for the last three days and these visitors have been our good friend's Eric and Flynn's mum and dad Jackie and Ivor. They have had a good time and the visit has helped Jackie relax a little before her surgery. Mum and dad took them to see Haworth and York and they went out in the evening for some good food, drinks and laughter. They did though all give me lots of love and cuddles too.I will show you some pictures of the visit. They are all jumbled up because mum mixed them up when putting them on. Sheesh...

First though we are joining in this weekend in remembering our furrends that have left us for the rainbow bridge in a weekend of remembrance. Friends : Kashim, Othello and Salome are hosting this and have all the details on their blog.

I remember all our furrends that have left us for the bridge and especially Sweet Praline who left so recently... Remembering all who are suffering in the USA with the terrible weather. All who suffered so terrible in the earthquakes. There are far too many names to remember individually so I light a candle for all..

I enjoyed the visit and all the attention...here I am guarding the plague rat that they bought for me. I got a bag full of goodies as well..


In Haworth this laid back kitty was happy to have his photo taken and was obviously so used to a lot of people ...His name was Billie..

The people asked for donates to take pictures and it was all for a local cat shelter so of course the mums and dads were happy to do that..



Jackie gave him ear skritches but he didn't wake up..




Here I am getting ear skritches from both dad and Ivor...


In Haworth...



I had to pose for lots of photo's and I humoured them...



Mum and Jackie were pleased with this one because I leaned right in to Jackie and gave her some purrs...



They put Ivor in the stocks in York...



More cuddles....



Still more....



They had fun and games putting the camera on the timer and trying to get me to cooperate for a group picture..




Another at Haworth...


The mums tossed the dads in prison at York..



This very old outside toilet made them smile and the mums tested it out for size..



There were lots of baby feathers at york all being watched over by proud parents who hissed when the beans got too close..



More fun in the York castle museum..



More baby feathers..




Now for an update on me... I have been eating... Not back to normal but eating on my own. Mum and dad got some small tins of Stinky goodness in a pate form and I ate it during the course of the day. When they came in and saw my empty dish there was cheers from all. Eric and Flynn's mum brought me treats and I ate some of those each day too. They are really hoping that this is the real turning point now. When the mums and dads got up on a morning I was asking for food, so another good sign,. I eat small amounts but go back to it on my own.


We had a really lovely visit from Eric and Flynn's mum and it did all of us some good. Come back soon and see us.




Mum will catch up when she can... Love and hugs to all.. GJ xxxx

It looks like all the humans are having a great visit, GJ. And how fortunate for you to be getting even more attention from your guests. They really do love you too. So good to hear you ate better - keep turning that corner and there is no going back, no U-turns allowed.

Have a great weekend.

We are so pleased you all had a good time togather! Mommy had a good laugh at the "Dads" in the jail, we can't understand why...

GJ we're glad you are eating on your own and you were a spectacular host. Mommy is jealous of the bean's trip; she is gaga about Richard II.

Punapippuri said...

GJ that's the bestest news you are eating! We are so pleased. And we hope all the cuddles and healing purrs help Eric and Flynn's mum too.

Oh GJ, I am SO pleased that you are eating on your own. I am too now, but because mommy can get the steroid pills into me. YOU look gorgeous and handsome and you were such a good host to your mom and Dad's friends. What a good boy you are. I love my Plague ratsie too. xoxoxoxo

Wow, that sure is all good news. We are so excited to hear that you are eating Mr. GJ. And the pictures of all of you are just terrific. We sure will keep Jackie in our prayers.
So keep up the good work GJ and keep the eating going on. Take care.

Hannah and Lucy said...

We are delighted that you had a good time with Eric and Flynn's mum and dad - we bet having a snuggle with you made Jackie feel much better. Mum laughed at the dads in jail and wondered if you threw rotten fruit at them!!
GJ we are so pleased you are eating bits and pieces on your own and some treats too. Keep it up and your mum and dad will have grins from ear to ear.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Jan's Funny Farm said...

So glad you all had such a good time. And very happy you have started eating more and on your own. Yeah! Keep it up.

Kari said...

You're eating! You're eating! How wonderful! The visit is just what everyone needed, including you. It is so wonderful to see the beans put aside their cares and just have fun! And all that attention for you. Delightful.

Why, you look wonderful, dear. And you got a plague ratsie! They're just so wonderful! The Rolls Royce of cat toys!
We are remembering with love and joy all of the great kitties, both family and friends, who have enriched our lives immeasurably over the years. They live on in our hearts. And we remember, too, all of the kitties that were euthanized because there were no homes for them. We will never allow ourselves to ever forget them. Prayers for all.

GJ, we're so happy the beans have had such a great time! We're continuing to purr and purray for Jackie and for you too -- it's good news that you're eating more! Yay! Paws crossed that this time you really have turned the corner.

We have our candle lit this weekend too, in memory of all who have crossed--especially Annie and Chumley.

Having a visit from Eric and Flynn's beans must have been just what you needed, GJ, since you have started to eat again! We loved all those pictures of the beans having a great time in York and it seems the weather was decent as well.

Keep eating!
