Feeling old....

Hello everyone.. Its really cold here at the minute and this is what I have been doing a lot of.. I hope you all stay warm and snug...

On Saturday mum and dad went to a christening of mum's great great niece Lexi...

yes I did say great great niece.. Mum says this does make her feel old because she remembers well the christening of her nephew..

Left to right nephew Howard, mum, great nephew Stefan and in the middle great great niece Lexi.. Mum said that seeing all the generations made her feel a zillian years old MOL...

Thank you all for the lovely comments yesterday, we so appreciate your caring. I am a big man cat for sure and my vet calls me his lovely big cuddly bear.I am though very thin under all the fur and did lose a lot of weight. Mum and dad are not worrying too much about that because so long as I hold my own and don't lose more it wont be so bad. the problems arose when I didn't eat for so long and lost so much weight. My body was using its own fat and that was why my kidneys failed as they could not cope with this and were poisoning my body, so I just have to keep eating and hold my weight for as long as possible..

Love and hugs to all GJ xxxxxx

There is a graphic on my sidebar that if you click takes you to the auction blog for my pals Truffle and Brulee.. Take a look see as there are many nice things there..

What a cutie Lexi is. Our mom doesn't have much family, but when she realizes how old the children of friends are now...Well, *that* makes her feel old. LOL.

Continued purrs and universal Light, GJ.

Kitty kisses (nose taps) from us and hugs from the mom.

Sweet G.J. you look so cuddly and peaceful resting there...what a gorgeous mancat you are. We love you with all your beautiful furs. Lexi is adorable. What a great gift to have the 4 generations pictures. Tell your pretty mom she sure does not look old. Hugs and nose kisses

Simba said...

Super pic of the family, and what a sweetie Lexi is. You tell your Mum that she truly looks young, and being a great great aunt should not make her feel old at all.

GJ, we know all about thin under the floof. Simba is not as thin as you but he is quite thin under his fluffiness, and Mom thinks he needs to be more consistent in his appetite and when he eats. YOU just keep up holding your weight, GJ.

You look like my kitteh brother Harry. Are you as weird as him? He likes to drink water out of the faucet and sleep on the kitchen table and any nook & cranny he can find. He also taunts me which makes me bark. He is around eleven years old and was the first pet of my mamma. Well the first one that she was solely responsible for. Despite Harry's crazy behaviors I will say that he (and you) have very pretty furs.

We think about and send you purrs every day, sweet GJ. We love you very much!

Madi and Mom said...

Hi GJ...I do wish I could send you one of my sunpuddles for I know you would enjoy them. I'm sitting in one now. When Mom touched my tush she said it was so hot it burned her hand...yes she is rather dramatic.
What a lovely picture of you and Mom yesterday.
Hugs Madi

LEXI... what a LOVELY name that is. I really like the picture of the GENERATIONS.

YOU keep eating like you SHOULD, OK?

welcome to my world of poetry said...

That getting old feeling comes to us all, but you are as young as you feel....that's the secret.
Take care in this cold weather GJ you are precious to us all.

Howdy Ginger Jasper, what an absolutely wonderful family photo. Mum has a great nephew too and when her great nephew was born my mum had just had our brother james, so they are only five months different in age. Weird aye. Also mum was an aunty when she was six and the kids at school didn't believe her!! Take care fluffy friend. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

Sparkle said...

My human has virtually no relatives, so she pretty much ignores how old she may or may not be! ;-) Cool photos, though!

I am glad you are hanging in there, GJ. Keep eating, please!

We all know your mom is young at heart, so what's a great great or two? :)

Keep eating, GJ. We love you.

Hi GJ,
Lexi is so cute!!!
Carol thank you for my birthday wishes. It has taken me almost a month to get back to you. B/c my old computer died Christmas Eve morning!!!! It went to the shop and was gone 18 days. When it came home it had a new mother board and everything is all different!! I lost a lot of stuff too!!!
I feel your pain when it comes to GJ. I know how it is to be losing a very much loved cat. Happy is 19- to 21 years old and she is so full of arthritis she can hardly walk. She keeps hanging on tho.
They are so very special!!
xx, Happy, Zoie & Fern

Oui Oui said...

We think our first comment went to cyberspace! We said we were glad all your problems were caused by not eating, and not something a lot worse. We think your mom doesn't look a zillion years old. We don't think she looks old at all, so she must be a "young old"!

Boo-Bah AKA Iris said...

Lexi is so pretty. I feel old too. I have three great grandsons and a 4th on the way. My oldest child will 54 his next birthday. Oh my, I am old!!

Ginger J. we think love can do miracles. You have plenty of that!

You are a beautiful boy and we hope with all our hearts that you will be around for a long time.


Prancer Pie said...

Lexi is so precious. Pah! Age is only a number. You're as young as you feel. Keep eating, GJ. All your fans are purrin and purraying fur you. xoxo

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Mum, celebrate the life that allows you the wonderous joy of holding a great great niece...you look marvelous and age is just a silly way of adding order to elusive time(imagine how old you would be if we counted in Base 50...problably slightly more than 10).

GJ, do your best, dear one. Eat to maintain your weight even if you must push yourself a bit. Know we send you White Dog encouragement and positive energy every day.

GJ, since I am the biggest warmest one here, I am teleportin over ta keep ya as warm as I can while the Beins don't notice.


The Chair Speaks said...

We're sending lots of purrs, GJ. Lexi's so cute!

Hannah and Lucy said...

What a lovely picture of you GJ to make our very wet start to the day feel sunny - your furs are so lovely. Just keep eating a bite here and there - it can soon add up to a meal ir two.
We love the picture of your Mum with Lexie and her nephew and great nephew. Baby Lexie looks a real cutie.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

Sweet Jasper, forget about this feeling, you are young and you are a wonderful cat!
I'm always thinking of you my sweet friend Jasper, sending love to your heart!

Bellen said...

Do you have a heated cat-bed, Ginger Jasper? I have one and my oldest cat loves it, especially as the temperature dropped to -30 recently.

Martha and Bailey said...

Oh GJ, for a human baby that baby is very cute!
Tell your mum she is looking very good for a great aunt!!!
Lovely to see you are still eating and looking after yourself.
Keep up the good work.
Much love

Cindy said...

What a doll, isn't she. Your mum doesn't look old enough for a great-great niece.
