Snowball here. This will be a long post cuz we have lots to tell you besides remembering our Angels Joey and Yoko. Anyone squeamish, should stop now and skip down to the fourth paragraph!
I have been very constipated and many of you may remember last year I had to be taken to the vets just before we lost Yoko. Well I guess I am re-enacting that at the same time of year. Pop noticed me straining at the litter box and luckily with some extra butter, bran and other stuff I was able to go some on my own. I am still not feeling great but Pop is hopeful we can finish this at home. (UPDATE - will be taking him to the vet at 3pm today.)
Meanwhile inside the house, Georgie has not been feeling well and Mom kinda thought she was constipated too. Well off to the vet with her since she just got diagnosed with diabetes and she was vomiting too.. They had to leave her there since the enema did not help much. I know it took two for me to get it all out. We are still waiting on word from the vet when to go get her. (UPDATE - Georgie is home but not much better - may have to go back to the vet today.)
This would have been a tough weekend anyway - it is the anniversary of the passing of both Joey and Yoko. Joey left us for the Bridge on Dec. 7, 2012 and Yoko went on Dec 6, 2013.
We all miss them so very much. They each had such a unique personality. Joey was a lover, a snuggle kitty who had to be literally in the middle of everything. He was everyone's buddy and got along with us all. He welcomed any new kitty with open paws.
Yoko was more reserved but she had a soft spot for Pop and a few selected other kitties - Joey being one of them. Towards the end of Joey's last year, they often slept together. Two sweet tabbies in one bed. Yoko loved Christmas lights and would love to sit under the tree, looking at the lights.
It is so sad to have another Christmas without our two wonderful cats here to enjoy it with us. We know they are watching over us like the angels they are. We think of you and sending you all our love, Joey and Yoko.
P.S. The auction for Georgie's Vet Bills will end tonight at midnight so get your final bid in while you can. Since our beans don't have a credit card, they have to pay with cash or borrow money to pay the vet bills as they come in. It doesn't leave them much to live on for their expenses. Our Giveforward graphic will remain up until the end of this year. We don't mean to get sick but all of us are now senior kitties and things do come up. Thank you all for all you do for us - sharing, commenting, posting, donating, giving and bidding!
