snuggled with mama at work

lucy writes: mama picked me up from the v-e-t about 45 minutes ago. she brought me to her office, set up water, food, litter, toys, treats, and a warm place to rest. i'm snuggled in her arms with my purr at about 45%.

my ladygarden incision is really small...but the v-e-t shaved most of my tummy! why did he do that? do you think cha-ching will still want me to be his valentine with a bald tummy? i hope so!

mama has people coming in all afternoon for supervision. they all like kitties, so i'll get lots of attention and cuddles.

love, lucy

mama toni writes: thank you for all the good wishes for healing fast! lucy's doing great. she has the v-e-t smell, but that will dissipate soon enough.

The first thing that makes today BIG and IMPORTANT is that Adan gave me the 'So Special' Award. I am honored to receive this award! See how pretty the flowers are...

I want to share it with Daisy Mae Maus, Muffin (and mommy Tracy), and Faz.

The second thing that makes today BIG and IMPORTANT is that Lucy is getting her ladygardenectomy today.

I can tell she's a little nervous--not for the surgery because that will be easy--but because she's hungry, and Mom won't give her anything to eat.

Lucy's been asking me 'Does Mama still love me?' I tell her that of course mom loves her. I also hear Mom telling her 'Lucy, it's because I love you so much that I want you to have your ladygardenectomy. You'll be healthier and happier and live a longer life.' It doesn't stop Lucy from searching the kitchen for snacks and water!

Mom here: Lucy's appointment is at 9:00 am. I'll take her in on my way to work, and then pick her up later today. You can be sure that she'll get the best of care and be in the pink again in no time!

She woke me at 3:30 am to tell me that she was hungry. I explained why she couldn't eat, and we both went back to sleep. At 6:00 am, she was still hungry, and started nibbling on me. Since then, she's spent time snuggled in my arms, and racing around the house scratching on her scratch posts, and trying to find something yummy.

I'll post again tonight when she's home.

Update from Lucy's Mom: lucy's spending the night at the v-e-t. I'll pick her up tomorrow and she will spend part of the day with me at work. Ben is wondering where she is...and sticking to me like velcro!

(a special thanks to dmm's mom!)

mom has three sisters and one brother. two of the three sisters and the brother live in washington state. one of the sisters lives in southern california.

there's big weather in all of those places right now. it's snowing hard in kennewick (aunt donna says 'snow day tomorrow?'). there are threats of snow here in western washington (mom says 'what? no snow day tomorrow?). there are storms brewing in so cal.

it's fun to watch the weather from where we live. we've got big windows that look onto a golf course...and the course shows all the weather.

here's the weather map from right around noon today:

so much yawning

mom's been yawning all afternoon and evening. i've made a little nest for her to snuggle with me...lots of cushions, a soft blankie, the tv remote, the telephone. all she needs to do is stretch out and cover up. then i'll come sit with her, and we'll rest.

she stays for awhile, and then wants to shift me around so that i'm not pressing on her sore spots. i don't want to be shifted. if i wanted to move, i'd move. sheesh, mom! do you think this cozy, snuggly cuddly nappy place is just for you? we're supposed to SHARE it!

(mom says she'd take and post pictures our little nest, but there's a connection problem with the camera. as soon as she gets it fixed, she'll get some posted!)

happy new year!

happy new year everyone! we hope you have gotten off to a good start, and that this year will be one of your best ever!

mom's going to take a break from blogging for awhile. she's working on dealing with some health issues--in a very good way--and it's taking time and energy. it's truly a good thing, and she's not sick, so not to worry.

we definitely won't forget our friends here...and we plan to stop by sometimes to say 'hi'. we'll post as we can convince mom to let us use the computer.

with love and wishes for the happiest of new years,
benjamin fuzz and lucy fur (aka lucinda suzanne)
