Wordy Wednesday

Amember dat gerl kitty dat Dr G took in, da pregnant one? Well, when Dr G gots her she was about 4 pounds unner wayt, had fleas and ear mites and *ewwww* worms! Any way, she's been cleaned up now and haf gained 2 pounds and Dr G gaved her an ulta-sound and she haf one kitten dat he could see and it was moving around and he thinks she should haf dat kitten in about 3 weeks. Yeah, she is pregnant but dat is not what made her tummy round, it was alla dem worms in der. He is a little bit worried about da kitten cuz da mom was so unner-nurished but he's gonna keep dem both, or all if she haf more den one, and dat is good. He's been calling her "sweetie" and dat just might be her name. He sed she is a very charming little lady now dat she's feeling better. She musta been somebodies kitty afore cuz she haf no fear of beins and let him give her a bath and clean her ears wifout a lot of fuss, but he sez she was on her own fur awhile and he din't find a micro-chip in her. Well, now she gots a good home and she'll never hafta worry about starving or getting worms or, after dis one is borned, haffing kittens. Now, I'm gonna let Zippy tell some stuff...
Thank you Speedy, and thank you Dr G fur taking good care of Sweetie. Mom is furry worried. Dad had to haf some tests done dis morning and dey found a toomer. Da doktor sez it might be cancer (we hate dat stoopid cancer) but dat either way it hasta come out. Da surjun is suppose to call daddy today and schedule some CT scan or something and den da surjery. Da prollem is dat dad's inshurints (he's on something called a COBRA) runs out at da end of June and den he don't know what he's gonna do cuz most of da money dat was saved up is gone now becuz of something called a "stock market" dat fell all da way down into da basement. Wow, dat musta hurted it cuz it even made mom cry. Den mom sed dat maybe dad shouldn't haf quite his job and den she sed he maybe shouldn't haf bawt da cabin and den dad gots all mad at mom fur saying dat stuff and told mom she hasta get off her lazy butt and get a job! Sheesh, she's been looking fur a job fur 6 months now and even applied at da local Speedway gas station, da Walmart and Target and din't get hired. No one is looking fur a 53 year old when der are lots of 19-25 year olds looking fur jobs. Der's not a lot of jobs in her field either, dat is why she went looking fur other work. She reminded dad dat she was gonna make and sell catnip toys but he managed to bury alla her supplies unner his light bulb stuff and dat her cutting table is covered in his fotografy stuff and dat he keeps saying he's gonna get da office/craft room cleaned up but he doesn't do it and now it may be to late. She don't know what to do. We hope she can figger out something cuz we is tired of her looking worried and dad yelling all da time. Sorry to dump dis on yoo guys but it feels good to get it out.

You guys are in our prayers - cancer is evil.

Millie said...

Cancer sure sucks. Mom and I are keeping you in our thoughts and prayers.

Mom practically cried to when the stock market tanked.

That's good news about Sweetie.

Sending purrs and hugs,

The Island Cats said...

We're glad "Sweetie" is doing well and is getting good care...

We are purraying for your dad...cancer sux...we hope everything will be okay for you...

The Creek Cats said...

Bless Dr G for taking care of Sweetie!!

It is good to vent sometimes guys!! You guys have a lot going on and sometimes it just helps to talk about it. We purray that your daddy is ok and that the tumor is benign. We are purring and purraying very hard for your family!

Zeus said...

Zippy, Sadie, and Speedy, believe me when I say this: I feel your pain. Though it might look bleak right now, there is nothing given to us in our lives that is beyond what we can handle. I am so sorry to hear of your Dad's diagnosis, but as trite as it might sound, 'where there's a will, there's a way'. Many people will pull together and help you - of this, I'm certain.

As for looking for a job, it's completely dismal right now. Anyone who is blessed to have a job right now, who hears of the economy on the news, almost has no idea as such hard times have not touched them. The human pet has been helping many people locate jobs, and everything in the area is swept up in a matter of minutes from the time it is posted on the local job sites. You are not alone in your struggles or your fight. Please remember that when your worries scream at you the most.

We will keep you in our prayers.

I hope everything gets better for your mommy & daddy soon! I'm sure you guys are doing your Very Best to keep your People calm and happy, and that sounds like a very big job right now. I will keep you in my purrs.

momsbusy said...

yeah for sweetie and the doc!

we know how you feel about needing to vent. our daddee lost his job in dec 07. no luck at finding anything for a 52 yr old guy w/ 30+ yrs experience either. he is really grumpy almost all of the time. moms bites her tongue alots.

so your dad yelling all the time b/c of his tumor and no job + mom w/ no job has him super grumpy. it would not be very healthy for you to not vent. we will purrayer for healing & good news for your family and soothing purrs for all of the grumpiness.

We are so sorry about what is happening at your home now. And it does feel better to get things out sometimes. Your mos is evidently very worried.

Hang in there!

I am so happy that Sweetie and her kitten(s) have a good forever home now. I am really sorry about your Dad's tumor and the other stuff going on at your house. Sometimes we beans yell and fight when we get frustrated and scared and don't feel well. I hope and pray that everything will turn around for you very soon. Venting once in a while is good for your mental health.

MISS PEACH ~(^.^)~ said...

Oh my sweetest friends... I know how hard life can be and get you down on your knees sometimes. We have all been there...when we are we stay there and pray. Like last month when my Lapdaddy almost died...then mommy got the $60,000 bill and she almost died! We still don't know who is going to pay it...hang in there guys...there important thing is that you have love and faith and all will get you through it. The stock market ate up so much of our green papers too...and then Lapdaddy got a pink slip from one of his jobbies. But life goes on and sometimes what comes after is even better than anything you had before....we are finding out now. We are grateful for each other and the love we share here in the cozy cottage...we take it one day at a time. We will pray for your daddybean and for your mommy to stay strong when she is getting the brunt of his pain...he loves her. he is a good guy we know that from when he offered to pay for the one ladies poor kitty at the Vet...we still remember that story. SO sit in their laps and purrr up a storm...it lowers blood pressure. We are so happy for kitty Sweetie...good things do happen!
Your adoring Miss Peach

We are very sad to hear abut your Dad. We hope everything will work out.

Hansel said...

wow guys we really hope everything gets better for you. The job market isn't too hot either. But we'll be praying for your mom to find a good job, and for your daddy to be ok. If you need green papers, we'd be more than happee to do a raffle fur you.

Name: Mr. Hendrix said...

What a rough time your beans are having. purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrs it is hard to find a job anywhere anymore.

My mommy saw something on Good Morning America about how COBRA is really expensive, but beans can find other options online. She doesn't remember how they said to find the other options, but the show aired about 3-4 weeks ago. I hope this suggestion helps.

My beans have both been off work before and we know how stressful and hard it is. We are purring and purring for you all and your beans.

The Crew said...

Oh Speedy dear, I'll be right over! We can purr together.

Mom says go to www.dhs.wisconsin.gov and look around. Also check with Milwaukee county. Waukehsa county has a health insurance program, so maybe Milwaukee county does too.

Love,
Misty

Team Tabby said...

You know it is good to "get it out" and share your burden wif all of us, hopefully this will make the burden a bit lighter knowing you and your beans are in our thoughts and prayers. Take Care.

Max said...

Wow...much suckitude for you right now. I got my paws crossed that everything works out for your Mom and Dad. Being sick w/no insurance is super stressful, and people get noisy when they're stressed out. No one ever taught them to purr it out and groom themselves quiet. They just get really scared and sometimes say things they shouldn't. I wish I knew the answers to making it all better.

PB 'n J said...

Oh goodness, so much badness all at one time! We'll be doing all our best purring for you Dad and Mom and Sweetie - they're all gonna need it.

TT said...

Kittehs, we fink we has a plan. A first yoo all has to help yer mom clean dat room up (after alls she is goin to make catnips stuffs and some kitteh has to test it out fer hers...) and den while she is makin da catnips stuffs yoo sit on da dad person to help hims fink better and to stop bein so furry mean.

The Cat Realm said...

Oh guys - when it rains it pours! We are so sorry to hear about your hard times... we will purr and purr for your Dad, it really doesn't have to be the "C" word! As for the money situation everywhere now - it's tough and we all just have to pull together! Our staff is not hit so hard because they were dirt poor before the recession even started and already know all the tricks on living below poverty level! But health insurance - or the lack of it will get you every time! We sooooooo hope this country will finally get a public health plan.... wishful thinking....
Hang in there - our thoughts and purrs are with you!
And we are very happy for Sweetie, what a great doctor Dr G is!

Kaz's Cats said...

It's great that Sweetie and her babies have a new home with Dr G. We're sorry about the bad news that your Dad got, and for all the hassles that your Mom and Dad are having. We're purring and purraying and sending positive thoughts to both of them through this time,

Sunny's Mommy said...

Many, many purrs that your Dad's tumor is not the bad word, and after surgery he'll be all better. It is very scary to be without health insurance, especially when you need it. I hope your Mom and Dad are able to find a personal policy, so they don't have to worry about that.

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...
