TO WRENNIE,
i LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, the kitty bed you made me! :ding: it is soo pretty and it having a removable cover is a great touch! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! kissie

In case you all did'nt see the other thread in hobbies last week, i sent wrennie the $ to make me a kitty couch fashioned after a door stop she made. it is the best kitty bed i have seen ever!!!!!!!!! clap cat :luv :ding:
she also included a crocheted mouse that matches!!!!!


it was intended for snuggles, my last year rescue, well, i put snuggles on the bed, he could'nt care less, stole the little mouse and took off!

well, 2 weeks ago, i nabbed 2 kittens off the highway that was living under a rock on the lake edge. 2 boys, there was 3 but someone said there was one hit a few days before i was there. boohoo am i the only one in town here that would stop and see if there was more?!?!? :mad:

anyway, the new bed aunt wrennie made is a HUGE hit with them! they attack the little pillow, play on it, and even lay on it..... lol

here they are on their new, comfy, cute bed....

clap They are gorgous kitties! I think you need more mice! Snuggles might decide he wants the bed when he sees the kittens like it. My older cat was is like that with the 3 siblings. Thats so cute they both fit on it!

yeah, more mice!!!! i can't put them together because snuggles turned out to be carrying a type of corona viruse---FIP maybe...so i won't bring anything else in the house, it would not be fair to them.

until they get big enough to go outside in a pen (10 x 6 dog kennel), they have a little cage out on the storage porch, but i bring them inside and let them have playtime in the upstairs bathroom during the day, then back out in cage with canned food for a treat. they have already learned this routine! grin

The last pic, on the first post, looked like 1 cat with two heads! lol It took me a couple minutes to figure out that I was looking at 2 kittens playing.

That bed is adorable, Wrennie. I'm so glad that your kitties are enjoying it, Wendy.

i obsessed over it when i first found out, but all i can do is keep him happy and "healthy" for as long as i can. he could start becoming sick at anytime, or i can have him for years....just take it as it comes!

I had 2 cats with feline leukemia, and adopted one knowing he had feline aids.
Thats the same as what I did. Keep them happy as long as you can.
Glad to say my 4 now are all disease free. I hope snuggles feels healthy for many years for you.

AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW - too precious Wendy! I just want to cuddle all of them!

Great bed, Aunt Wrennie - you do such nice work!!!


Our first cat, Cookie, ended up having bone marrow cancer at just 4 years old - we didn't know it until the day before we had to put her to "sleep". We truly believe it was from the feline leukemia shot, and found another vet for our current cats who believes as we do, and does not recommend giving it.

I hope each of your furry critters lives a very long, happy, and healthy life.

i also don't think vaccines are healthy, i give each one a booster when they are fixed, after that i don't fool with them.

i know how you feel! tears i have tested every cat i took in and still wound up with both aids and leukemia---between years ago not having a test for aids, i lost callie---then bear & blueberry got sick and i retested, they had leukemia---lost them! boohoo we think it was hiding in their bone marrow and the first test did not pick it up.

i still have a few old kitties from that group but who knows if they contacted either!

i was always sooo careful (i thought), and it did not seem to make a difference! all i can do is rescue who i can, fix them, and make sure they are happy, sheltered, and loved! i am not even going to test the new kittens, whether they are neg. or pos., it won't make any difference, they will be by themselves and this is their home now!

Very Great pics!

Also, that was VERY decent of you to pick up those kitties... Most people would just pass them by... My cat is very nasty and vicious, and would surely be put to sleep if we got rid of it, so we hang on to it, and besides, it's sorta the 'joke' around... because it's so, well, large, and absent-minded... lol It's just something to joke about. lol
I, too, hope they live a very long, happy life.. but since you saved them, they probably will.. kissie

**Not to mention, that's a pretty cool bed! grin clap lol **

there are many people who just do not get it. My parents are some. My dad many years ago had a pet beagle. he was so close to "mike' it was something to behold. so mike got old & sick 7 needed to be put down---so since one does not spend money on vets---dad took him out to the woods 9which he loved) let him run around for a bit--had a conversation with him & then shot him. he then buried him & came home with tears in his eyes. I was grown with kids & it was the first time I had seen that. I just think that was wrong--but it was how he & his generation did/does things--- rolz

i guess you do what you know, but this day and age, people should be "reprogramed". i am sure that was the hardest thing for your dad to do and don't agree with how he did it, BUT, he did make a good choice in not letting him suffer! some don't even care to do that!

i don't know that your dad was wrong. a well placed shot would be much less painful and traumatic than an uncomfortable trip to the vet, yet another physical exam, then being held down for the shot.

my husband and i both grew up like your dad. but, when it came time to put our cat down, neither of us had the heart to do it so it was off to the vet. they wouldn't do it until they verified she was really ill, counseled me on how i was making the right choice, and then they did it. Then, i had the $40 bill to pay, and the drive home to bury her.

what made it worse was that she hated cars, hated driving, hated strangers, and hated that exam table. so if either of us had been able to handle a single shot while she was sleeping in the sun, we could have buried her within minutes, and she wouldn't have suffered at all. but we couldn't do it. i wish i could have. i still feel bad for making her take that last car ride, even though putting her down was the right thing to do.

that's true, in your case, the way she went was for more traumatic than the other....but you did the right thing in seeing that she did not suffer.

YEARS AGO, (i hope i don't get in trouble for saying this), we were using a country vet in town that knew us pretty good, she would let us take the syringe of euthanasia stuff home and do the deed where our cats chose. i can't even remember why my cat snickers was failing, but i took him outside where we did our afternoon walks while he was sick, sat on the step, spent the last time together, then i injected it into his hip. this took several minutes since it did not go through the vein, but he just put his head down and slept. this WAS the hardest thing to do, but he went at home with no one else around but who he knew!

tonya, i agree 100%! that is the main problem-people not being responsible in the first place. if you choose to have a animal, you (meaning people in general) should see that the animal is taken care of for the rest of it's life and spayed or neutered so that you are not adding to the overpopulation of homeless animals that is a result of people being irresponsible in the first place!

what you and jiffy have done is much more humane than just letting them crawl off and die a horrible death somewhere.....my beef is the spaying and neutering thing....that is what i meant when i said reprogrammed.

no, that is quite allright! if everybody had such strong opinions (like us), the animals would not have such a hard time in this world!
