Healing and resting

Dear furriends,
it has been a bit silent on our bloggie. We will have to say goodbye to the idea of daily blogging because our mom needs our help as student's cats. We all love blogging, but she doesn't get anything done without us. Sigh, a cat has to do what a cat has to do. We'll be around, don't worry, but just not as much.
But first of all I have some healing to do. You see, I had my spay surgery on Thursday and I just came back from an antinflammatory shot today. Boy, was I feeling miserable Thursday and Friday! I even threw up two times Thursday night. And that little sisfur of mine just ignores me instead of washing and snuggling me like I did when she had her surgery! At least she doesn't throw hissy fits so I have my peace. You might wonder why I had the surgery only now and not earlier. Well, initially I was meant to get a little bunch of Norwegian Forest Cats. But mom and I talked things through and we realised that this is not a good idea for multiple reasons. I'm sure I would have been a terrific mom and my kittens would have had the most beautiful floofy tails, but I'm equally fine just enjoying my life like it was with Chillimus and mom. I'll just baby Chilli instead. Ha!
With this going on it was a wonderful surprise - and purrfect timing - that we received a present from our dear furriends over at Quiltcat's Mewsings today. We didn't have a clue! It's a comfy cat mat and just the thing for me now. Mom got a cotton sachet filled with organic lavender, so we are all beaming with happiness. Last year we played Paw it Forward with mom Paula and like then she sent a really pretty selfmade card along. It's sitting on our bookshelf now right next to the other one. Thank you Paula and Sylvie, Louie, Fuzzy & Gingy, this was a genuine surprise!
On Monday I have to go back to the dreaded vet. Please keep paws crossed that I won't need to wear one of these cones. I have a plaster on the incision and didn't get to it so far. The vet said I'm doing fine and I already purred for mom yesterday.
Love,
Siena Snowfox

Sometimes our humans are to busy too. Doing their human-stuff.

We hope you get better soon.

The gift from Quiltcat looks very pretty. You've deserved it!

Sammy and Andy said...

We loved the mat, Siena...and we are sending you lotza purrs in hopes you will feel fine again soon. Please don't forget us and drop by when you can. xxxxxxxxxx

Cory said...

Sweet Siena...big purrs to you. I remember how miserable I was after my spay surgery. I was only 6 months old and I had no idea what was coming even though my momma and mom tried to tell me. I was so upset I tried to nurse on momma Ellie when I came home...and she bunny kicked me! ::sob:: She later washed me and purred on me. It takes a couple of days but you'll feel fine soon.

As for daily blogging...don't feel you need to. We do want to see your gorgeousnessfloofinessprettypussness as often as possible so don't stay away all the time ok?

meowmeowmans said...

Your mat is almost as beautiful as you, Siena! We are praying and purring that you feel better soon (and that no cones of shame are involved in the process).

quiltcat said...

Hi there. We knew you'd love your gifts, but had no idea how perfect the timing would be! Siena, hope you heal soon from your spay surgery...we think your mom did the right thing, even though you would have had the most gorgeous kittens, there are more than enough kitties in the world right now, and it would have been costly for her to care for them until they went to their new homes. We're sorry that Chilli isn't snuggling you, but glad you are wrapped in the mat, since it's full of love from all of us. (Hope your mom's finger heals soon and her studies go well this year!)

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Oh purrs for you to get better. I hate it when the Woman gets too busy to help me blog!

Kea said...

I wondered if everyone was okay, was looking for an email contact, but couldn't find one.

I'm glad all is well--reasonably well, at any rate. Lots of purrs and healing Light to you, for a speedy recovery. Kudos to your mom for making the right choice in spaying.

(((Hugs))) and kitty kisses to all.

One Cats Nip said...

I hope you heal quickly! I cant wait to get to know you a bit more through your blogs since I've just recently found you.

Cezar and Léia said...

oh sweetie, hope you are feeling better today, I will send you my good energies and all my love, also purrs and prayers for your faster recover.
Very interesting words about kids or not kids!
I think you did a right choice!
purrs and love

Dearest Siena,

We are so sorry that you are feeling sore and that Chilli is not taking care of you. We remember well how you cared for her after her surgery. We hope you will feel all better soon.

Those are such wonderful gifts from the Quiltcat gang. We also received a surprise package and were thrilled!

Purrs from
Tama-Chan and the kittens, Sei-Chan, Yuu-Chan
and gentle healing woofs from
TOMMY

Kea said...

I know I need glasses, but I still don't see the email. LOL. That's okay, I've got your post on my Fuzzy Tales blog; thanks so much.

Yes, it's a desperate situation to try and find homes for all the unwanted kittens, cats, puppies and dogs. Our shelter *does* euthanize for space reasons and the thought makes me sick. I don't know which is worse: Killing the animal without giving it a chance, or having the animal live for months (or years) in a cage. Ugh.

This is why I am a big advocate for spaying/neutering. Plus, there is a greater risk of breast cancer in cats (and I suppose dogs too) that are allowed to have litters. So unless one is a bona fide registered breeder, it's far better, IMO, to spay/neuter.

Purrs and kitty kisses to all!

Daisy said...

I hope you feel all better soon, Siena! We know how you feel because my Mommeh is starting a new job next week and we are not sure how it will affect our blogging, too.

The Island Cats said...

Siena, we hope you are feeling better real soon! And we'll miss you guys...we do hope you'll be around once in awhile....

JC said...

I am so sorry you had some trouble with your surgery. I'm sure if you nap, you'll be all better soon.

Much Love to You,

JC & The Purr Gang ^,,^

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Siena, just worry about your mom, if she needs looking after. Some humans just need more snoopervision than others. (We put Jan on that list too.)

We hope you feel better very soon! No surgery is fun.

LizzyBean said...

Dearest Friends,
Siena, we are sure you will feel better soon....surgery is tough, especially the older you get. I'm sure you and your Mom made the right decision. We find it hard to blog daily as well, so understand completely. You must be sure to keep your Mom on the straight and narrow with her studies! What a beautiful surprise from the Quilt Cats.
Love, all your friends at the Rose Jugglers -- LizzyBean, BB, Tiger, GK, Sammy, and Alice

Ginger Jasper said...

I so know how your mum feels and how she needs to take time to do what she needs to do. Now you little one take care and get all mended soon. I just adore that picture of you cuddled under your new blanket. what a super surprise you got.. Take care. get well soon.. Love GJ xx

Becky's Barnyard said...

I love the picture of you and the flower. Hope you feel better soon, Siena. What good little cats ya'll are to help Mom out with her studies.

Misha said...

I know you're feeling sore, but your Mummy did the right thing. Could you imagine if you got knocked up by a wandering non-Wedgie Lothario?!

Simba said...

Purrs for feeling all better soon. Don't lick your incision so you don't have to have a cone.

Alasandra said...

Siena, we are sending healing purrs your way.

Good luck helping your Mom with her studies. We has to let youngest boy bean use our computer so we do not get to blog and visit as much as we would like, thank cat & dog we don't actually have to help him with his work. ~AFSS

Eric and Flynn said...

We hope you soon feel better again and your incision heals well. Your gifts are beautiful.

I'm glad you are doing some better now. Make sure you help Mom. Try not to stay away too long because we'll all be missing you!

MoMo said...

Poor LSIF!!! I hope you feel better soon. Too bad there won't be little NFCs but breeding takes a lot of time and effort.

We (SS and I) fully understand the dilemma of time constraint in blogging. We hope you will let us see your gorgeous self from time to time. We would miss you terribly otherwise.

Love your mat.

Rest well, little one. Purrrrrrrrrs to you.

BeadedTail said...

Siena, we are sending you purrs that you heal real soon. We understand that you will need to help your mom study but hope you blog when you have time. Take care beautiful!

We hope you are feeling better very soon.

Cheyenne -Millie said...

We hope that you are feeling much better! My little sister will have to have that surgery soon!

Karen Jo said...

I hope that you feel better very soon, Siena. That mat is just perfect for you. I have given you an award.

milocat said...

Don't worry about being too busy to blog, 'cos we've got yoor RSS feed ~ so whenever yoo write a new post we will know and we can pop over and read it. Sometimes a cat hasta do wot a cat hasta do!

Love Milo and Alfie xx

Oh sweet LSIF you would have had lovely kittens but this is best I'm sure. You just rest and get healed up quickly.

You girls take good care of your Mom and get her through all the studying.

minekatter said...

Hope you'll heal well! And hope you won't quit blogging, because we love keeping up to date with what you and your sister's up to!

Lucy the Cat said...

Hi Sienna, I've missed you. I've actually been away too. I hope you heal very soon from your surgery. I love your gift. It's very pretty and snuggly. It's very understandable that you and Chilimus need to help your mom with her studies.

Many purrs,
Lucy

Hope you feel better soon!

Pugs & Kisses,

Derby said...

Let us know what is happening when you can, being a student is a hard and busy thing.

Hope you get all healed up and back on your feet quickly.

Purrfect Haven said...

We would lick you (gently) if WE were there. Poor you. We know what its like. We had an op like that. Bingley needed extra surgery because they found a lump. It was scary. But he is just fine now. Love Darcy and Bingley xx

The Kool~Kittie~Krew said...

Oh Sweetie Siena. We hope you heal up furry soon! That is a lovely kittie mat you got, purrfect for times like this!

JB's Big and Small Worlds said...

Aw, we hope you are feeling ok now, Sienna. I had to have that done nearly 10 years ago too.
We know how it is with daily blogging too. We try to get our mom to help us post twice a week, and that has been working out ok, but we miss everyone!
--JB

Lynx217 said...

we hope you won't be gone long and stop by whenever you can! huggles and purrs to all of yas!

katztales said...

Poor sweetheart. I hope you'll feel better soon.

Goldie, Shade and Banshee said...

Poor Siena, we would love to be there and snuggle with you in hopes of a speedy recovery. We'll send over some healing thoughts.

Hope your Mom's studies go well and you feel up to helping her when you fully recover.

We got a surprise from Quiltcat too, so lovely. We are posting about it later this week when we get the camera working again. :(

Don't worry about the less-time-for-blogging-issue, we are going through the same thing here. *Sigh*

Purrs Goldie, Shade and Banshee

Teri and the cats of Furrydance said...

We are sure that pretty cat mat helped you feel better, least we are hoping you have already recuperated and are feeling fine!

Parker said...

You would have had beautiful babes, but I'm glad that you and your Mom decided to do this.
So many little babes out there don't have homes now!
Smoochies!
