PATTY: I'm reading this now and it's good--very, very good. Here's a quote I want to capture:
Moneymaking doesn't satisfy the artistic yearning, doesn't satisfy the search for meaning, doesn't equal the personal reward of discovering tiny gems among stones.
That pretty much sums it up for me. I'm always a little squirmy when people start talking about their houses and furniture and possessions because none of that means much to me. I don't drool when the conversation turns to personal wealth and I don't aim my energy in that direction either. But if I hear a tree frog in the dusk, I am in ecstacy.
Daffy is doing better than well! She runs the operation now, of course. I will be posting more news about her soon and hope some of you are still interested in the goings on at the Skypants B&B. xoxo

She's a little over three years old and had some gorgeous green eyes and glorious muff furs. Unfortunately, her former pawrents had her declawed, which is okay for an indoor kitty. We're taking her to the vet next week to make sure she doesn't have any after effects that are causing her pain.
Daffodil will have her own blog Daffodil and Patty and we hope you will visit and subscribe.

Life is so different without Bhu: not so rich, not so fun. But this morning as I was making coffee I looked up out the window and saw big, huge, puffy white snowfluffs! A message from Bhu; he knew how much joy the first snowfall brings to me. He is saying to me, "It's okay mom; I'm good!"
Reading the comments on yesterday's post, I'm really challenged to find the best words to communicate just how grateful we are for your love and sympathy. So many of you have gone through this at least once and you know the deep sadness. I love that we have this community that cares and supports each of its members, human and feline (and canine). xoxo Patty

|We loved him and he loved us.|
Everything that could possibly be done for him was done, but he was just not going to get well. There were too many issues. We were so lucky to live close to a major veterinary hospital where the absolute best state-of-the-art care was given. We had the chance to spend time with him, give him noms of chicken, and bid farewell before he proceeded on his journey.
Thank you, furrends, for your purrayers and concern. It made a difference and we love you! xoxo

|Bhu wants to know "Why you takin' my picture? Take me home!"|
|Poor Bhu appears to be tethered on both sides. He is not having a good day.|
|Getting lots of attention, but none of it feels good.|

Your good wishes help a lot! Purray if you can; we would do the same for you! xoxo

If you have time, please say a little purrayer for him. I'm sure he's gonna be lonely for us tonight, as we are so lonely for him. xoxo
P.S. Pet your cat!!

PATTY: Well, Sab and I are so thrilled to be celebrating this BIG birthday with Bhu! We love him with all our hearts! Here are just a few photos of Bhu through the years. Unfortunately, I lost one of my jump drives that has most of the photos from the first ten years.
BHU: Stellar work, Mom!
|In the beginning: just a little kitteh with a happy future!!|
|The Adolescent Bhu was just as confident as he is today! Quilts make the mancat!|
|In the spotlight: in his Purrfessional acting role from As the Paw Turns!|
|Demonstrating one of his many yoga positions.|
|His favorite place and constant companion.|

|Howdy! Just hangin' out with my peeps today!|
BHU: Well, my poppy's been home a lot this year and so I've kinda switched over to having him be my primary pet provider. Not that you're a slacker, but he's more likely to pick me up when I yowl in the hallway.
PATTY: Yes, let's talk about that a bit. I remember when no one could keep you from jumping on the beds and the chairs and the counters and you would go just anywhere that was HIGHER. Now, you stay pretty close to the floor.
BHU: True. These old bones just aren't as resilient anymore. Hurts to land, so I just stay on the carpeting and when I want to go higher I yowl. You've heard me, right?
PATTY: Um, I think they can hear you in Stockholm, frankly. You're really loud!
BHU: Duh, for a reason! If you responded quicker I'd stop. When are you gonna catch on?? Poppy gets it . . . just another reason why he is now my PPP.
PATTY: Yeah, well you know how I hate to be manipulated. I have to say I'm very impressed by your repertoire and your vocal range. I've often thought about recording your "songs"; I think there's at least an album's worth.
BHU: I am pretty talented in that way.
PATTY: Let's also delve into your diet. While you were once a very finicky eater who had favorites and rarely deviated, you have turned into an unpredictable experimenter! You seem to get bored with your food quickly. We're running out of choices!
BHU: I don't see you eating the same thing every day, day after day; why should I?
PATTY: So, what's a typical day for Bhu?
BHU: Sleep, eat, pee, poo, get pets. Sometimes I let you brush me and I'm okay with that now.
PATTY: You will be 19 years old in one month. Are you excited?
BHU: It is what it is. Time for a nap!
|My new Primary Pet Provider. He does a good job!|
