This and That ...

Greetings everyone! It has been a few days since I last posted. I have been busier than usual lately and thought I would let you all in on what I have been up to. First and foremost, I would like to deeply thank all of my dear friends who sent their sincere thoughts and support after we lost our beloved "little Queen." Friday, her beautiful urn I ordered for her ashes came in the mail. We always have our cat urns personalized and I really do love the lovely ones offered on the Perfect Memorials website ...

I also added Kiki's pic to the other side of my locket with Midnight on it ...

I have also recently started a new blog called, "Mermaid Tails and Dragon Treasures" where I plan to feature my personal poetry, decor, collectibles, and such. I still have much to do to it as of yet, but I am working on it. I want it to be my "fun" blog.  :)

Until next time, my friends ~ Brightest Blessings!!

In loving memory of my "Little Queen"

It is with a very heavy heart that we had to have our precious Kiki put to sleep. She had terrible liver failure and, according to our vet, very possibly cancer as well which only would have spread had we tried to keep her going as we were. I do not need to tell you all that I am a complete mess, as it was only a few short months ago that I also lost my baby boy Midnight to lymphoma.

As I always say, Nature ALWAYS has the last word in these matters and to be honest, it is the most helpless feeling there is. I have ordered her a beautiful personally engraved cat urn as we are picking her ashes up in about two weeks or so from the vet.

I also want to thank everyone who sent Kiki their love and prayers. We both greatly appreciated them so much. Goddess bless!

This and That ...

Greetings everyone! Well, looks like my last week's vacation for the year has come to an end ... as always it flew by far too quickly and tomorrow it is back to reality for me! I did get a few things on my to-do list accomplished however. I thoroughly cleaned up the entire upstairs and added some new additions to my little nautical-themed bathroom.  I found a couple of cool items at Bed, Bath & Beyond and also some sale items I came across at Michael's ...

Two framed seashell portraits

A lighthouse that lights up red and green

A hand soap dispenser

A small green and white colored seashell throw rug

And of course I could not help myself to browse one of my favorite sites, Amazon.com. I have been doing a bit more reading on dragons as of late and I found this interesting book called, "Dragonology: The Complete Book of Dragons" written by Dr. Ernest Drake ...

In Chinese (Eastern) astrology, I fall under the category of a Wood Dragon which is kind of odd because in Western astrology I am the sign of Pisces. Interesting concept to me all the same ...

And finally, an update on my Kiki-girl. She is such a little trooper and has really been struggling to eat very much the past couple of days or so. The strange thing is, she only wants to eat the Greenie treats I gave her for Christmas so I am going to try to put her back on her dry food and see what how it goes? Hopefully, she will be able to keep it down. I know it is only a matter of time before we must make that terribly difficult decision to ... well, you know ... but until she tells me with her body language that she is ready, I will not give up on her. Here is a little pic of her playing with her new cat toy ...

Until next time friends ... stay warm and stay safe!

Happy New Year!

The day after ...

Happy Tuesday all, I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday celebration! Welcome to my "day after" post. You know, tons of  delicious leftover ham, filling/mashed potatoes, gravy, veggies, homemade cookies and all sorts of yummy deserts!

Along with the leftover goodies, I also took a few little pics from yesterday's festivities ...
How blessed are my kitties to have so many friends and family to remember them at Christmas time? 

Looks like Leo liked his new pillow, although he may have been a bit confused and thought he was looking into a mirror.

My mom's dog, Brandi also enjoyed the day opening her gifts ...

And my MIL's King Charles Cavalier, Tulip, also had a good day ...
Looks like someone borrowed Tulip's comfy  new gift blanket to take an after dinner nap.  :)

Mom 'n' me

With all of the extra food from yesterday, I think we will all be eating ham in some form or another for the next two weeks! LOL!
