Girlcats on Monday

Kitties!  I hope all of you kitties and woofies had a wonderful smooch filled day with your pawrents.  Because even though we are furbabies, our human pawrents are that, pawrents.  We get the care and love and attention that any family member deserves.  And we are loved as tenderly as we love our pawrents.  Case closed when I say I hope your Mother's day was grand. <3<3

I squashed up against mom's knee..the inside part at the back of her leg for sleepies night before last and down on her feets last night.  I even let her turn over!  Some of you said I was too harsh thumping to the floor three nights ago leaving her without me...and I considered that and agreed.  So I decided to lay up against her the next two nights.  It's been coldish in here at about 67 degrees in the bedroom at night.  The heat doesn't come on until it's 69 degrees, so I needed her heat.  (She needed mine).

Mommy went out with the youngest human brother for lunch on Mother's Day.  He came back here to the house and they had a good deal of the afternoon together.  She asked him to please move the spare bed (MY bed!!) in the back bedroom so she could get the Admiral's furs out from under as the bed was too ungainly for her to move.  Admiral spent a good deal of her last 12 months living here UTB, as she was sick.  Her didn't feel well so that's where she went to rest.

Kitties, there was enough fur to make another kitty!  Mommy used her two hands with Platex kitchen gloves on to scrape up the furs from the carpet before vacuuming.  That saves a huge clog in the vacuum and mommy felt the silkiness of Admiral's curly Tortie furs again as she gathered them up.



These are from her tummy area, her undercarriage furs and they sure don't look like her glossy multicolored furs, no, but they are hers, mixed with several years worth of mess that was also down there.  You see specks of paper mixed in.  Mommy's baby girl.

Sad and touching. The Admiral is a continuing presence for your Mom just as Margo and Hemingway are for us. I'm sure your Mom got a tear in her eye and a lump in her throat, just as we sometimes do when reminded of our two kitties waiting over the Rainbow Bridge.

Darling, I have missed you so very much! Mommy is finally feeling better so I think she will be fine if I left her for a few hours to spend time with you.
I helped Mommy make more chicken jerky last night and we made extra for you. xoxoxo

Much love, Your Boomie

ABBY said...

Those are beautiful Admiral furrs.
Bittersweet memories.

Brian said...

Each fur has a memory and we all miss that Admiral. You are such a joy for your Mom sweet Katie!

Beth said...

I know that was a very sad thing for mom to do, gathering up Admiral's fur from under the bed. I am glad you and brother helped mom to have a very nice Mother's Day. xx

Marg said...

Oh that is sad to be cleaning up Admiral's hair. We miss that girl and we know the Mom does too. Glad the younger son helped her. Hope all of you have a great day.

Cat said...

Hi sweet Katie, we just popped by to thank you for visiting us last we with birthday wishes for Kip and Casper :-)

BeadedTail said...

We're glad your mom had a nice Mother's Day! It's very special that she has some Admiral furs too! Our mommy found furs from the cat before us UTB too and she just kept touching them.

Simba said...

We are glad you have given Mommy some night time snuggles. Those sweet furs of Admiral's look so soft. It is sad she went UTB so much, and that your Mom has that memory when collecting those furs. We loved that last visit from Admiral on her bloggie. We know she is always there at the Rainbow Bridge

Bittersweet!

How nice to give your Mommy some room...remember, don't make a habit of it!

pee ess, we loved your Mom's Mother's Day post.

CATachresis said...

Awww Katie, I expect mommy went all leaky eyed! I see you are back to snuggling again :) You don't want her to get too comfortable at night, do you! ;)

Maxwell, Faraday and Allie said...

That must have been bittersweet for your mum, but we know you comforted her after!

Tamago said...

Oh it must have been hard and happy at the same time to touch Admiral san's soft fur. Glad your brofer was with your mom.

Callie (a.k.a. Trouble) said...

Your Mommy is lucky to have you with her when she is sad about Admiral.

We hope your Mama was able to keep a bit of Admiral's tummy furs. They might make a nice keepsake , placed in a pretty little gossamer bag that costume jewellery comes in. Just a thought :)

Mariodacat said...

Awww - bitter sweet findings. It was good your brother was there to help with that project.

Cathy Keisha said...

Bet it made your Momma cry seeing Admiral's furs. It was like she was still under the bed.

Oui Oui said...

Angel furrs! Such a special way of remembering. The mom thought Carl had been visiting and doing a bit of shedding. And thanks for coming to my party!

Sparkle the Designer Cat said...

Seeing that pile of Admiral's fur made me a little sad. I bet it made your human a little sad too. Purrs to her.

The Island Cats said...

Wow, it's like a whole Admiral there. We bet your mom kept some of those furs, didn't she?

Anonymous said...

Oh I'm sure that was sad for your Mom to see Admiral's fur from UTB but it does look like enough to make another kitty! I'm sure your Mom enjoyed Mother's Day though because she has YOU to keep her warm at night now.

Kitty Hugs, Sammy

Selina said...

Awwww ... it's always good to find tactile reminders, isn't it?

Love

Hannah and Lucy said...

We hope your Mom kept some of Admiral's furs - Mum has some of her "before" furries.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Good girl Katie! Letting your mom turn over means you get to re-settle and keep getting her heat! I'm sure she liked that!
Aww, the admiral's furs gave your mom some sweet memories I bet.

The Cat From Hell said...

Oh Katie, My Mommy feels for your Mommy. Yesterday she was looking for something in the basement and found where hissy old Licorice had hided one of his catnip mice! He loved his mice and always tooked them and hided them from me. Mommy finded it and she sat down and cried. Then she putted it in her treasure box.
Kisses

Awww, my heart is sad for your mom - I know the elegant Admiral's tummy fur probably brought brought tears to her eyes. I'm glad you were with mom to comfort her.

You're such a beautiful lady Katie Isabella. Take good care of your mom.

La Cabeza Grande said...

Oh-My-Cat! That's a lot of furry reminder of a certain lovely Tortie. Happy your mom got a chance to clean UTB; sad for the memory of your sisfur.

Nik, Rocky, & Mom
