I kicked her off our laptop

Twilight’s not big enough to do it, so I had to.

Making our Can Opener rest

Twilight and I have been trying to make our Can Opener rest because she’s under so much stress. She likes to stay busy to keep herself occupied so she doesn’t get the unpleasant pictures going through her head constantly of the Backup Can Opener as he died. The problem is, they keep running through her head anyway, and we tell her it’s time to get into the grief counseling that the Hospice program offers.

She plans to do that, of course, but she’s been so busy notifying people, and all that final stuff, and gathering up all his things, that at the end of the day she’s wiped out and in pain. Twilight keeps trying to make her play to cheer her up, but that just makes her feel guilty because she can’t do that right now.

She has made herself take some time to play with Twilight the last few days- because she was gone so much running back and forth to the hospital, and then she was so busy taking care of him when he came home, that Twilight was really stressed out.

She even tried to play with me a little- But then Twilight jumped in and I got frustrated. So I just plant myself on her lap and get snuggles, because there’s no one else here to give her snuggles now. She seems to love that -(until her legs start to hurt). I’ve been upset at Twilight because I’m still on a diet- and she’s not. Honestly, she can eat whatever she wants, but the Can Opener doesn’t want me gaining weight. That dang health nut!

Honestly, I don’t see the big deal- what harm can 5 or 6 cans of food do in a day? It’s FOOD! And I’m getting tired of being limited on treats- have you seen how tiny those bags are?

Maybe the Can Opener needs something to laugh at right now?

It’s been a while since she’s laughed- maybe I need to fix that. Maybe it’s time to pay Twilight back for all those times I was sleeping, and she sneaked up on me and started swatting me…


Yes- I definitely think it’s payback time!

  1. You kitties are probably helping the Can Opener even if you don’t realize it …but all this human stuff has to be done so that eventually things can get back to normal – or what will be normal with your Dad gone. It’s hard for you girls to be patient with her, and she is probably impatient with herself. Snuggles are a good idea.

    1. Thank you for the prayers! Our Can Opener needs them. E keep leading her into the kitchen to remind her to eat-(and give us whipped cream-) but she doesn’t eat herself-she just takes care of us- but she does have a scoop of collagen and protein powder in her first cup of coffee every morning. And nibbles on almonds also- then she eats later in the morning, and eats a salad in the afternoon. She just gets so busy and eats fruit when she needs a snack. I would catch her a mouse, but she’s too picky and never touches them!

  4. You two kitties are a good stress release button. And those snuggles are truly the best therapy. But of course the grief counseling will be immensely helpful, too.
    I giggled at that GIF, I almost thought you were going to jump out at me, LOL!

    You all continue to be in our thoughts and prayers,
    This is Psalm 121. I find it comforting to myself, and the whole book of Psalms actually has so much treasure in it. I kept them close to me when my self was dealing with cancer and chemo and surgeries, etc. ( 2006/7 I am a miracle, God healed me, through the hands of the docs and nurses and church members who helped me through it all.)

    1 I will lift up my eyes to the hills—
    From whence comes my help?
    2 My help comes from the Lord,
    Who made heaven and earth.

    3 He will not allow your foot to [a]be moved;
    He who keeps you will not slumber.
    4 Behold, He who keeps Israel
    Shall neither slumber nor sleep.

    5 The Lord is your [b]keeper;
    The Lord is your shade at your right hand.
    6 The sun shall not strike you by day,
    Nor the moon by night.

    7 The Lord shall [c]preserve you from all evil;
    He shall preserve your soul.
    8 The Lord shall preserve[d] your going out and your coming in
    From this time forth, and even forevermore.

    1. That is one of our Can Opener’s favorite Psalms! We hear her praying that and Psalm 91, and Psalm 23 every day! Thank you! She loves that! How wonderful that you were healed! You truly are a miracle!


  5. Sushi dear furiend, I didn’t know that you were on a horrible diet, too! You are so correct about 5-6 cans of FOOD being just fine. Merlin shares our purspective on this, but the rest aren’t that interested…. very uncatish!
    Change is never easy… the purrticular sort of change you’re dealing with is the worst sort…. I assure you that we’re all purraying that you and yours quickly find a happy place and memories that warm the soul.
