Happy Halloween to Efurry One!!!

Happy Halloween All! Mommy made this cute picture of me just for Halloween! I hope Redfurd likes it! It's just a little quick something Mommy threw together!
Luffs, Gizmo <3Are any of you getting to go trick-or-treating? I don't get to. But, the beans are going and will be getting lots of candies! Daddy promised he would give me some stinky goodness while they go out getting the candy! Landon is going to be a little Renaissance boy. Eli will be a Giraffe. Daddy is, of course, going as Kid Rock. Mommy has no idea what to be, so she's thinking of throwing on some pj's and a house coat and putting curlers in her hair and going as a plain old house wife. Poor mommy...she couldnt find her Tennessee Vols cheerleading outfit she made a year ago, so she is limited to what she can be. I am going to be a sleepy kitty with a tummy full of stinky goodness! haha! What are you going to be?

Thursday: Thankful / Chloe

I am thankful for every one of you kitties.

Chloe is doing so much better. Grandma said that she is back to eating and she even WANTS to take her pills every morning! She is taking a antibiotic and a diuretic for the fluid. Again, there are no signs of the hole in her heart. Mommy thinks it was a glitch in the machine, but it's great news. She is getting back to being her playful self. On another note, Sandy is having allergy sniffles ans sneezes again, he has to get shots every few months to keep from getting snot everywhere! Ew! lol

Mommy is also feeling better. However, she is still contemplating going to the human VET just to be checked out. She is 99% sure it's nothing but a normal girly thing, but there is a slight hint in the back of her mind that says it's what she dreads it could be/could have been. I won't go into that b/c it's not good for little kitty eyes to read.

So, on a happier note, I want to say a big LUFFS to my handsome mancat, Redfurd!
Here are some beans pictures Mommy took recently:

Tuxie Tuesday

Here's a lil tongue action for you all today! lol. Help, I'm in jail!
Grandmommy says that Chloe is doing lots better. She is still weak at times and wants to play but just cant find the energy. Her lungs are looking better too. She is still on antibiotics and they are saying that they couldnt find the hole in her heart yesterday when she went back! Holy Cow! They couldnt find it! That's good news. Maybe good things will keep happening for her! Again, thank you all for your kind prayers and thoughts. Chloe is getting better everyday.

Oh, and Redfurd, I feel like I have been neglecting you with my girlfriendly duties. Mom hasnt been able to help me get online (other than her blackberry) because she has been having her own troubles the past two days. But, she's feeling much better today!
Luffs & Purrs, Gizmo <3

Hey everyone. Things have been crazy with all the running around going on here today. The beans had 2 birthdays to go to and then the Tennessee vs Alabama football game. Anyway, I didn't talk to my mother until just a minute ago. She said that Chloe is actually doing a bit better. Apparently, Chloe wasn't able to lay down unless she was on the back of the couch slumped over it, and today she is able to lay in the floor and actually be somewhat comfortable. So, the prayers from all of you are slowly working for her. Thank you all so much. She still has a ways to go. I don't have any other updates as far as the fluid in her lungs or about the hole in her heart because my mother was in a hurry to get back to work. But, even the slightest bit better is good news. Again, I will keep you all updated on her progress.

Thanks you everyone for asking about her.

Update: Chloe

Update: Mommy here again: My mother called and is on her way to take Chloe back to the vet. She even said that is if she is still here and hasn't crossed the bridge. That is so sad. She said that Sandy, her not white kitty (who looks like Gizmo's man, Redfurd!) who usually doesn't have much to do with the twin whities, has been sittin' there staring at Chloe and even goes up to her and licks her nose. He knows something is wrong and feels bad for her. And for him to do this, it has to be something bad.
Well, mom was supposed to have her there at 3:30cst, so I should have another update in a bit. Please say more prayers and send purs her way. This is making my mother feel very sad. And I have no idea how Snowy is feeling. She is Chloe's twin. So, they are usually inseparable and if all goes bad, then she will probably be very saddened as well.
Ok, well we are getting a new couch and love seat tomorrow morning. I gotta clean up the living room and figure out a way to get this old recliner couch out the door. My husband isn't home yet, and I am tired from the day of worrying about Chloe, keeping up with the boys, and trying to figure out how we are going to fit the new couch/ls in here tomorrow...

You Are All So Sweet!

Thank you for all the prayers for Chloe. Mommy almost started crying reading all the comments from the last post. I believe that every prayer will help her. Mommy said she can't get over how nice everyone from the cat blogosphere is. I feel like you all have become some of my closest friends over these months I have been blogging. You are all always there to help a kitty in need. I am very grateful to have friends like you. I will update everyone on Chloe's condition as grandma let's us know. Thank You again!!!

PeeEs: Mommy got the sniffles helping me type this. :-)

Please Say A Prayer for Grandma's Kitty, Chloe

April here, I just wanted to take a few minutes to ask for prayers for my mother's kitty, Chloe. She had taken all three of her cats to the vet last week for their shots, etc. Well, they noticed Chloe was having trouble breathing. Well, she has since been back I believe two times. JB, the vet, said that she has fluid on her lungs and is on antibiotics. BUT, he also said that she has a hole somewhere in there. I am guessing in her heart or somewhere like that. And that is also making her breathe harder. My mother has had the twins for only a year, so it's very sad. She doesn't know what is going to ultimately happen to Chloe. I believe she has to go back soon to see if the antibiotics are helping. My mother also said she may need surgery. She doesnt think they could afford it if Chloe does need it. She said she may have to just let her go in peace if nothing else can be done. It is so sad....Here is a picture of Chloe with Landon.

I would also like to thank our friends over at Whimpurr's Whim who have given us an award to brighten our day!! Thank you so much, everyone!

Another Lazy Sunday

Well it's a lazy Sunday around here again. So, not much to meow about today. With this cooler weather, I am sleepin more and taking it easy.
But, I do want to say that I am going to try to get better at leaving comments for everybody who leaves me one. It's hard to do with a Mommy who is always having to do something with/for the beans. And we all know I am not good at typing on a laptop. Hehe.
Oh, and Redfurd, I hope you're having a good weekend! I am going to try to get mommy to make a nice picture of me and you together soon!

Left Alone Saturday...

Sorry I haven't been able to post until now. The mommy and daddy and beans have been in and out since 9:00 this morning. Oldest bean, Landon, had headshots made for a Talent Agent. Then they dropped off their step-sister and THEN went to Wal-Mart for groceries. Mommy saved $26.95 with coupons! GO Mommy! They also got me a new comb and some stuff for fleas. She found one on me after that doggie had been hanging around so she wanted to be sure there are no more.
So, hope everyone has a great weekend!
My Luffs to Redfurd! *sigh*

A Clean Kitty is A Happy Kitty

Last night after my bath:

This morning:

My new bald spot...Redfurd, you still luffs me right? Even like this?

Bad Kitty Thursday!

This is Mommy here today. Just look at what Gizmo did last night!

There was a table with a mist fountain on it (like the one below). There was also a small shelf on the wall WAY above it. Well, Gizmo got the bright idea of trying to "drink" from this fountain.
She climbed up on the table and when she put her paws on the edge of the fountain...SPLASH....JUMP...BUMP...CRASH!!!

She got wet and jumped and tried to LAND on the shelf!!! And the fountain crashed to the ground spilling water and glass everywhere!!! This was at 10pm, bedtime, and we were up for an hour cleaning up the glass and vacuming the carpet. She got in trouble and by the time we had ran in there to see what happened, she was on the kitchen table looking quite guilty! See, all we heard was a crash of glass, so my hubby grabbed his gun and went to check all the windows and look for bad guys!!! But, it was just Gizmo...being Gizmo...

**Excuse the mess, things were thrown everywhere trying to find all the glass**
What the fountain looked like:And After:You can see the shelf in this one: Gizmo here: I didn't do it!!! ok...ok...yes, I did...I am sorry Mommy. Guess what they did to me as punishment? They gave me a bath!! Yes, you read right. A bath. Ugh...

Mommy: Gizmo, you were shedding everywhere and you had a few knots of fur back there that needed to be cut out b/c your hair is so thick!

Gizmo: Well....I do have to admit I am now all fresh and clean for my man, Redfurd. **sigh**

Do any of you ever get a bath? Do you find it as unacceptable as I do? I mean, afterward I spent all night giving myself a real bath to fix my fur!

Thursday is National Feral Cats Day!

Please go here!

Tuxie Tuesday

*Sigh* I wish Redfurd were here to share this window with me...

Sunday, October 12, 2008

Omigosh! Omigosh!

Omigosh! Redfurd asked me to be his girl today!!! Of course I said yes!!! I am so happy! Ahhh, Everything is perfect!

Lazy Saturday

I feel like really being lazy today. So, here are two Kitty Heaven pictures for you to enjoy. I hope this is what it is really like over the bridge. How about you? Good Morning Redfurd! Hope you have a nice lazy day like myself!

Friday, October 10, 2008

Finally Friday

I had so much fun with Redfurd last night. I am still giddy! *sigh*

Check out this picture Mommy did for me last night while I was on my date.

Thursday, October 9, 2008

Welcome, Redfurd!

Welcome to my home, Redfurd. I have got some of that nice ham you like. I also had mom stop and get a bottle of wine just incase you wanted some. And there's catnip for desert! I have some bagged up for you to take home to your friends too.

**I am so excited! This is my very first date ever...I hope Redfurd likes me, because I think he is a very handsome mancat. Will let you all know how it goes!**

***UPDATE: Redfurd gave me some beautiful flowers! You can see them here. I think he is a very sweet kitty. We are about to sit down to supper. Purrs, ~Gizmo

***Another Update: I had so much fun with Redfurd tonight. After dinner we had some catnip outside under the stars and talked. He is very sweet. I thanked his bean for letting him come over, too. So, maybe this is the start of something really nice! *sigh* I have had a long day, I think I am going to head to bed now. See you in the morning everyone!

Good Night and Sweet Dreams Redfurd!!!


Ha Ha. While daddy was feeding the little bean (see the jar behind his plate), I decided I wanted some of his ham...and got some! I had already eaten some mommy gave me, but I wasn't full, so I helped myself to daddy's.

Do you all steal food from your beans' plates too?

Well this is Day 4 of "finding love", I have my sights set on two mancats so far. But, we will just have to wait and see!

Also, I've redone my page. What do you think about it? Please let me know!

Wordless Wednesday (almost)

Thanks everyone for helping so far to find me a mancat. I have met some really cool new kitties in the process of checking everyone out!
P.S. This is post number 89, so it's getting close to number 100! Maybe I should start making plans for a little get together?!? What do you think?

Day 2 of Finding Love

So boys, what do ya think of these?
I'm looking for a mancat to treat me like a princess:

I'm looking for my Mr. GoodCat! Thanks to Zoolatry for doing these pictures! You're the best!

A Challenge for You All!

So, I have been searching and searching high and low for the perfect mancat. I haven't found him yet. So, here' s my challenge. Help me find my true love! Think you can do it? You are all so wonderful, I am sure you can help me find him!

So, is there anyone that comes to mind? Let me know! Or tell him about me and have him check out my bloggy. I would love to find someone in time for christmas. I love sending presents!

I want you all to meet Kiki!

This is Kiki. She is the beans not real kitty. When Landon got her, he couldn't say Kitty, so he called her Kiki and that became her name. She is almost 2 years old now and meows and purrs when you pet her. She is a very sweet kitty.

The beans like her 'cuz they can pet her...which means they are not petting me! Yay! They can be rough sometimes and I am just too fast for them! P.S. She's not mad, just looks that way in the picture because her floofy fur is in her eyes!
P.S.S. Kiki wants to give a sweet shout out to Mike from Grethen's Paw Prattle! He is looking for love and she hopes he thinks she is purty!
