Terrible Tuesday

Well Persephone and I have recovered from our party. Our peoples though...

It was terrible, everycat!!! My OTW was so stressed out when she got up the next day she disappeared into the bathroom and refused to come out for a squillion hours!! When we finally howled her out, her hair had turned purple and green!!!

She got a blister from all the typing and posting! (No, really, that just happened! The candy canes are from last Christmas. They buy lots because she gets cranky if she can't have candy canes in July.)

And the Big One? He was last seen wandering around the local supermarket, wearing a fish on his head!!!

I caught my OTW in a Furry Little Leghold Trap so she couldn't leave, just in case!

Someperson has to fill the kibble bowl and clean the litterbox!!

PS. From the OTW: For those of you who were keeping my aunt (who was diagnosed with advanced liver cancer) in your prayers, I heard from my mam on Sat that Tante Anneke passed away in her sleep early Fri morning (Netherlands time). While her passing was sad, it was probably a relief at that point. Anneke still recognized her family, but was very weak. As I mentioned before, I'm fine. I haven't met my Tante Anneke since I was 1 1/2yrs, and the only contact over the years were birthday cards which ceased many years ago. My mam is with her 3 surviving siblings in Holland (as well as an enormous great lot of nieces, nephews, grand-nieces and grand-nephews), who are supporting each other.

Wow - your folks have had a rough patch. At least they have candy canes and you!

Wow, it looks like your humans were really affected by the party! My goodness! The Big One is a wonderful chef - all the food he prepared was delicious!

Mr. Hendrix said...

aw, i'm sorry to hear that. i'm glad your grandma still has family over there support her.

it sounds like we may have been to much for your beans. mommy sayz her hair was purple in high school for a while. she dyed her roots so it looked like it was growing in that way. sigh.

make sure your beans rest up and your mommy takes care of that finger. She'll need it for your future posts.

Those are funny pictures of your people. That big party must have been way too much stress for them.

Wow you guys through a great party.

I liked the tour around your neighbourhood. Where I live, there are lots and lots of trees and never ever any snow. It is also the middle of spring here. Maybe you should come for a break, when the weather gets rough?
