Thanks, Swcret Paws and Life



 Angel here.   We want to thank everyone for all the thoughts, prayers and cards when Kirby left us.  We miss him so much.  Mom was so use to him meeting her at the door so he could run outside, that she still hesitates when she opens it.  He loved going outside when she out for the mail. 

Christmas:  That boy loved Christmas.  He would play in the wrapping paper as the grand kids ripped it off.  When our Secret Paws came every year, he would paw and claw at it till Mom let us open it.  This year it was so different.   Our Secret Paws Partner was Paw News for Cat Lovers  by BJ Bangs.  Mom called us to come help open the package and I would not come out of the bedroom!  Max joined her for a sniff and walked away. 


 Usually Max always picked out his toy and left the rest to us.  I finally came out after Christmas and looked  and sniffed at the toys and went on my way.   It was not the gift, it was because we were missing our brother!



After that Max started playing with them! Mom finds them all over the house!  And so did I . Wand toys are great!


 Mom got a book by BJ Bangs.  


She attempted to read it to us, but we're cats, you know, and would not sit still to listen!  Thank you  for the lovely fun gifts.

Tuesday was Kirby's 12th gotcha day.  Mom did not want to get out of bed to post about it.  And then her Great Grandson made an early and abrupt entrance into the world.  He was 9 or 10 weeks early but came out screaming! 2 lb.s 6 oz.s and 14 inches long.   He and his Mom are doing great.  They have her blood pressure under control now.  He is breathing on his own and has a feeding tube for breast milk.  It will probably be 2 or 3 months (when he gets out of NICU) before we get to see him!

That was a lovely Secret Paws package. I am glad they are playing with the toys now. Cats can grieve as much as humans, sometimes more.
Congratulations on the new great grandson. I am glad he and mom are doing well.

Those are some fun presents you got. I understand how it’s not the same without Kirby. But you’ll all find a new normal…it takes time though. Congrats on the new grandbean! :) ~Ernie
