Full update coming soon

Thank you for not giving up on us.

Stage 4 Adenocarcinoma

Our humans are in the fight of their lives- but God is so good to them in it all. They are strong and Sushi and I are making sure they stay that way.

Their strength is from The Lord-not their own. So that’s good- because those two Can Openers wouldn’t have a chance otherwise!

Our Can Opener has almost forgotten its Christmas! The family was called in and she hasn’t had even time to think since all this started.

She asked me and Sushi to update you all and to thank you for not giving up on our blog- all of you are also her source of strength. Sushi doesn’t do anything but sleep and hiss when we walk to close to her tail, so I decided I’d better do it.

She also said she hopes none of you are also going through anything like this- and that you all have a purrfect Christmas!

We’ll be back!! We love and appreciate every one of you! 🎄

That dang Sewing Machine!

That noisy thing is getting all the attention now.

And it’s all to make “Christmas Presents!”

Up until now, if the Can Opener stayed up late on a week night, it was either to type for me or Sushi on our blog, or to play with me. All weekend though, and this week- it’s not for playing. It’s for sewing and designing patterns and toys for the Critters for Christmas. And for other surprises meant for someone who doesn’t have four legs. How rude!

Acutally, I don’t mean to be jealous— wait. Yes I do. I mean, of course I do. I’m a CAT. As long as everything goes my way, I’m completely flexible.

But this is getting ridiculous.

Between that, and the continual pouring rain and cold (and high winds)– I am getting very little playtime – and staying inside without playtime is rough on a cat. Especially with the squirrels, ducks and birds taunting me from outside the window. The Can Opener takes short breaks to play with me for a while- but for some reason, she never lets me grab her patterns and pins and bat them around. And when I come and lay on them, she immediately stops sewing and does something else! I’m just trying to “help” her!

I did manage to swipe her measuring tape, though!!!

Next I’m going for the ribbons and yarn…. she won’t miss a few spools…

Holiday Busy-ness!

No time to think!

There have been back-to-back birthdays to prepare for, (including her own this week)- Critters to teach, referee, and entertain, hubby not feeling well, Psycho Sheba (cat) next door trying to take over our house, Christmas gifts to make (and wrap)- baking, planning, and cleaning.

Then there’s Sushi and cute little me. The schedule has changed, routine has changed, and everything else on earth has changed. No wonder the Can Opener rarely takes time to play with me!

I know you’re busy, Human. But it’s raining and I’m BORED! There’s not even a Christmas tree to knock over!

BUT she did yesterday! She knows I love paper bags, and sparkly, shiny things and ribbons and bows and GOLF BALLS – and BOXES!

I had so much fun- I was sure that when I kicked the golfball to her on her yoga mat today as she was getting ready for her workout- (not yoga)- that she was going to tell me she couldn’t play with me yet. But she DIDN’T!

Psycho Sheba gets locked out of her house and then pushes her way in our door and hunts for our treats!
This is how I feel when the Critters are here all day.

And right when I start to think she has forgotten to take care of herself, she starts to work out. Great. I’d rather play. But she tells me that she can’t afford to not work out with all the stress in her life and I try my best to give her the look to make her feel guilty….

And that reminds me of how special she makes me feel and how lucky I am not to be a stray anymore.

Maybe I’ll stop making her feel guilty… for now.

She gets mad at our human when she’s not allowed to eat our treats and growls and hisses at her- then gets escorted out.
The Can Opener has been playing games with the tiny Critter too.

Sometimes I think our Human is so busy taking care of everyone else that she forgets to take care of herself too.

Then I remember the new bed she bought me that I still haven’t used. Because I like hers best.

It’s that time of year again…

Time to help these poor humans get the Christmas tree set up JUST RIGHT!

People don’t realize how hard we cats have to work to “help” the humans get it right! No matter what we do to correct their mistakes they always come around and undo our contributions.
