Early this morning, before the sun woke up, daddy put our kitty brother Simba Blue in a carrier and took him to the vet. Simba had just turned 18, but has been in kidney failure for well over one year. He was on prescription medication but that was not a cure, instead, it allowed him to live a little longer. Momma had been after daddy to let her take Simba back to the vet, but daddy insisted it wasn't time yet, even after Simba had jumped up on daddy's bed and pooped right in the center, then proceeded to clean himself off, like nothing had happened - LOL. As time went on, Simba hardly ate anything, but spent an enormous energy gulping down water. Poor Simba walked slowly and slept most of the time. He wouldn't even run anymore when Jade and I tried to chase him. Momma and daddy would tell us to leave Simba alone, but we just couldn't help ourselves, and would always invite him to play with us anyways.
As daddy and Simba were heading down our driveway this morning, momma got up and dumped the kitty sand box out, mumbling something about finally being free from cat box duty. After more than 30 years, with 7 different kitties, that chore was FINISHED! Momma did tell daddy that he could get another kitty if he wanted to, but that HE, would have to do everything associated with the care, and upkeep of it. Daddy promptly declined. Jade and I aren't to sure about how this will work out because we always blamed Simba for any potty accidents that happened in the house. I'm leaning towards saying Simba is back in ghost form, but not sure how that will go over.
We are going to miss Simba, but he did have a very good life.

"Wait a minute! Shouldn't that be Jade and Mei-Ling here?!"
"Mei-Ling, I think I hear momma calling me. I'll be right back" Jade runs off and Mei-Ling snickers.
"There is no Bully stick. I don't like them, but Jade loves to chew on them. I knew she would fall for the Ole Bully stick trick. Doesn't she know what part of the bull she is sticking in her mouth? Guess that's a silly question because we are talking about Jade, who likes to eat poop"
"So, as I started to say before Jade interrupted me, welcome to my blog. Momma has been neglecting updating things here, so I'm going to take it upon myself to let everyone know what's been going on"
"We had an interesting winter this year. Some days seemed like winter with hail, sleet and snow"

This is our third attempt to update our blog. Normally, momma helps us do our blog using the computer. The last three times, she had us use her Samsung Galaxy tablet. For some reason, the menu bar had been missing, so we were not able to add captions to the photos, couldn't change the photo sizes, and even worse, we were unable to publish our page.
I'm going to stop complaining now because apparently MOMMA didn't know what she was doing.
Now, onto more important things: Ms. Donna, our thoughts and prayers are with you. Please get better soon. Demon Flash Bandit, Angel Zoom Smokey, the rest of your family and friends love you much and hope for your recovery.
And, speaking of Damion Flash Bandit, we received a couple of his Presidential bumper stickers. Jade took them outside and put one on momma's car and the other one on daddy's truck. You have our vote big dog.

Hi everyone, Mei-Ling and Jade here,
We haven't had our blog updated in months! Time is just flying by. I will be turning two years old on June 10th, and Jade will turn 1 on July 27th, can you believe that? My little fursister and I get along great. Her personality is quite different than mine though. I am calm and mello. Jade on the other hand, always seems to get in trouble. Just today, Jade destroyed one of momma's Iris plants that was just opening up. Now, it is in a zillion pieces because Jade thought it would be fun to rip it apart. I tried and tried to tell her to leave the flower alone, but she wouldn't listen. When she was done with the Iris, she moved on to some other plants. Momma had to put up fencing around several of the planters to keep Jade from doing more damage.
As some of you might have noticed, we didn't get to post any of our pretty photos here. There were over 3,000 photos in momma's computer, but the software program got messed up and refused to let momma have access to any of them. Luckily, momma found a computer expert who could trouble shoot her computer remotely and was able to fix the problem. Once momma could access the photos, momma immediately moved them all onto thumb drives so if the computer messes up again, at least the photos will be safe.
Daddy has been busy reassembling the greenhouse he put up last year. We had some real strong wind storms come our way, and every panel, plus some of the framing got ripped out. Daddy discovered that two of the larger panels have disappeared. There isn't anyplace locally where he can purchase replacement panels from so he had to order them through the internet. The shipping costs were more than the panels were, can you believe that?
Momma hasn't been doing much of anything. She tried to make a doctors appointment, but her doctor was out sick, so she ended up having to see someone else. This doctor ordered a full set of blood tests and discovered momma's red blood count was dangerously low. It was so low, that momma had to be rushed to the hospital for a blood trasfusion. She was admitted to the hospital and received three units of blood. Now momma has to get a bunch of testing done to figure out what is going on with her. At least now, we understand why momma was so tired all the time.
We hope all is well with our pals. We are still in shock about beautiful Whitley 's passing. She is going to be missed by all of her friends and family...
Love to you all!
Mei-Ling and Jade

Hello, hello! Mei-Ling here.
My little fursister Jade had her big girl surgery done on Thursday. Our regular vet couldn't get her in until February 18th. Normally that wouldn't be a problem, but we are expecting a series of storms coming through, thus, our roads will become dangerous and mucky. Daddy found a vet in Grants that could take her the next day, so that worked well.
So, Thursday morning, we got up super early and headed off to Grants. I had to get a booster shot, while Jade was getting spayed and microchipped. I'm happy to report that everything went well. This vet office was a very tiny place and didn't do things quite as my vet does. Jade did not get the tiny incision on her side, instead, the vet made the larger incision in the middle of her belly. The humans were told it was a good thing the surgery was done that way because her uterus was quite large. Also, once the surgery was completed, the vet tattooed a heart on her tummy which is supposed to indicate that she has been spayed.
I am so jealous! I didn't get a tattoo after I had my big girl surgery....

Look how tired she looks. We had been playing all morning long and she is worn out - THANK GOODNESS!
On another note, we continue to have Internet problems. Daddy doesn't know why we are always out of internet time, but when that happens, all we can do is wait for our allotment to be renewed. Until that happens, we can't post anything, that is why we haven't been blogging much. Pretty pitiful if you ask me...
