Prayers for Rachel

Hello friends, this is Kathleen, the human. I've come on here to let you know I won't be blogging as much due to some family issues.We could really use some purrs and prayers right now. We are so thankful to be part of a loving and caring pet blogging community and we want you to know that you all mean a lot to us. Thank you.
 My little sister, Rachel, who's almost 13 , got a second degree burn a few weeks ago. It happened out of nowhere, one minute we are enjoying our morning and the next thing we know she's rushed to the Emergency Room. It happened when she was boiling hot water for her tea and it accidentally spilled. We never would have thought something like this would have happened, but it just proves that you need to be super careful when dealing with anything hot (especially tea water.)

She was taken to the emergency room after an hour and a half spent with cold running  water on the burn. We didn't have transportation at the time, so the ambulance was kind enough to come and give her a ride to the hospital. Thank God it wasn't anything fatal, but at the time it felt like it.
She was in extensive pain, so bad that it was difficult to  change shirts. Her upper-leg and stomach got the most damage, and she now has a 2nd degree burn there. She's in a lot of pain, but she's healing. The doctor gave her pain medicine and she has to wear a gauze and creme. She's getting better. She had to stay in bed for a few days and rest. She's able to walk now and do regular things, and luckily the burn is healing up. It's still bad but with time it will heal. Lats week we went to the Children's hospital (once every other week she goes for her therapy).
Here are some photos we took during the holidays.

She enjoyed posing in "Santa's" sleigh they put up each year for the kids to play in.

There were some snowmen they put on display, so cute!
                                           And look at this Christmas tree!

I will keep you updated on her progress as much as possible, and thank you for your caring thoughts and prayers. She is getting much better and her burn is healing nicely so she should be in great shape soon. The Tabby Cat Club is hosting a special event in which we remember our loved ones, and I want to take some special time to honour and remember all of our loved ones.

Secret Paws

We received a special gift from the thoughtful  and very warm-hearted, Laila and Minchie! We got our package very early this month but were not able to post about it because our human servant had the cold and we had to be her nurse for a while. So please forgive us for the delay!

Laila and Minchie and their mom are so thoughtful! They sent us wonderful gifts and truly made this Christmas one to remember! They even thought of our human and gave her chocolates! How sweet.

The gifts!

The gifts unwrapped!

Under the tree!

Yum yum!

I am going to eat you!
Thank you, Laila and Minchie, for helping make this Christmas one to remember! Hugs and Christmas love to all.

Mancat Monday

Another flashy box adventure with Sherlock under the tree.

   Shhhh.. there's a present for Mom under the Tree.
Don't let the flashybox see!

I can sense it...


Something tells me it's close by

Can it see me?

Oh no! It's looking right at me!

I will hide behind these branches and it won't see me!

Hiding behind the branches always works

Is it gone yet?

If it comes back again...
It's in for a surprise!
