Everything seems to be okay. It's too complicated for a simple cat like me to explain, but Treater wrote about what happened to Stretch.

Everything is fine. Everything is going to be okay. I just know it.

Thanks to effurrybody for all the purrayers!!

Uh, not so good.

That ringy-thingy did it again last night. Treater was on the phone for a long time in the middle of the night. It was Light. Stretch had to ride in an ambulance back to the hospital. They thought his surgery was okay, but I guess something went wrong.

We're purraying over here again.

Looks good!

Treater has been on the phone a lot this afternoon, but I heard her say that Stretch is out of surgery and doing fine and is in recovery! My human sister hasn't seen him yet and hasn't talked to the doctor yet, but everything looks good so far.

Thanks to effurrybody for all of the wonderful purrayers!!

Purray today

My human brother-in-law, Stretch, is having surgery this morning. Please remember to pray for him and my human sister!

Rain and bird and cat

It keeps raining, and the big birds keep coming back.

Treater went out in the rain to get a better picture of an ibis for me...

...and OF me!!

So near, yet so far

What am I watching?

So near...

...yet so far away.

It's raining here. Treater says that Fay is making it rain. I guess Fay's not all bad, 'cause the rain makes these birdies come out.

Treater says that Fay is bad - really bad - for the people on the east coast 'cause they have too much rain. Fay is wearing out her welcome. Go away, Fay!

My human sister and her hubby and Treater and Napper really appreciate everybody's prayers. My human sister (Light) and her hubby (Stretch) are Lala's momma and daddy. Lala's too busy to write because she's keeping things in order at the farm and making Willow, Racer, and Lady toe the line while Stretch is in the hospital. I think she'll be back in action here soon.

Anyway, Stretch's surgery is on Wednesday, and we are purraying that it will fix all of his problems and make him all better. Thanks for purraying, and please keep it up!

Another update

Treater answered the ringy-thingy early this morning. She said that it was my human sister telling us that her hubby is back in the hospital again. She said, "Complications." I'm not sure what that means, but Treater is very unhappy.

I think we all need to keep purraying for Stretch.

An update

Thanks so much to all of you for purraying - cats and humans alike! My human sister says that her hubby is doing better and responding very well to his treatment. She said that he shows no signs of any permanent damage, but the doctor found a hole in his heart. That means he's going to have surgery on August 27.

My human sister and her hubby are Lala's people. Lala is my blogging buddy, but she doesn't blog much because her mommy is going to have a human baby. There's not going to be much lap room for Lala, so that means not much blogging!

Thanks again for purraying, and please don't stop! Oh, and Treater and Napper decided to wait before going up there to be with them, so they're still here with me. That makes me purrrrr!

Today was a very rainy day. It rained so much that it brought out the ibises...a bunch of them! One ibis didn't want to get his feet wet. I don't blame him. I don't much care for wet feet, either.

Purrayers needed!

This isn't good. My human sister (the one who is going to have a baby) called and woke us up last night. Her hubby was hospitalized last night. The tests showed that he has suffered a series of strokes last night and this morning.

Treater and Napper may be flying up there to be with them. I'm not sure who's going to be here with me.

Keep us all in your purrayers, please!

Gold medalist

Remember yesterday when I said that I'd been napping...a lot?

Well, I forgot to add one more thing that I've been doing a lot of lately.

I'm practicing for the Hairball Olympics. I figured I should go for the Gold.

Cat Days of August

It's August.

It's hot.

It's been raining a bit. Well, a lot.

Nothing's going on. I haven't even had anything to blog about. So how have I been spending my time?

The Needs Meme

I read about this meme over at Gandalf and Grayson's blog. It looked interesting. I thought I'd try it, too. It's pretty easy. Just google your name with the word "needs" after it and see what you come up with!

Spooky got 2,640,000 results! Here are the top 10:

1. Spooky needs a holiday in Somalia!
Where? My holidays are better spent under the bed.

2. Spooky needs a home.
I have a home, thankyouverymuch.

3. Spooky needs a break.
I got one when we moved far away from Eve and the Tall Guy Who Always Picks Me Up.

4. Spooky needs help!
Everyone needs help once in a while...even if that means going to the V-E-T.

5. Spooky needs food.
Yep. 'Nuff said!

6. Spooky needs more dark stuff.
Um, 'xactly what kind of "dark stuff" does this refer to?

7. Spooky needs to relax.
Can't get any more relaxed than this:

8. Spooky needs to find a new date.
New date? I haven't had the first date yet!

9. Spooky needs a horse.

10. Spooky needs more mileage.
Mileage? I'm a C-A-T, not a C-A-R.

A new critter?

Well, mystery solved. Sort of.

It has something to do with that red-headed human "sister" of mine. She's the one that my nieces (Willow and Lala) and nephew cat (Racer) live with. She said she's getting a baby. I wonder if it will be furry and have a tail? It might have blue eyes like me, or maybe it'll have green ones like Willow, Lala, and Racer. Just as long as it doesn't bark like Lady (their D-O-G).

Well, whatever kind of baby critter it is, Treater and Napper are happy, and they keep calling each other "Grandma" and "Grandpa."

People are so weird.

What's going on?

Somebody in this place has the giggles. She won't quit giggling and she won't tell me what it's all about. Napper is actually giggling, too.

I know what they say. "Curiosity killed the cat."

Hey, I'm a cat.

I'm curious.

Treater says I'll have to wait 'till next week to find out.
