I know, I know. It's been furefer since mama let me blog. But things have not been going well here, and we just couldn't share. We have problems with the green papers. Serious ones. Mama says there is something called Medigap which makes her upset cause it raises the price of three of her meds to unbelievable heights. So, while I have my foodies and my denties, and important things like my litter, a lot of things mama needs are not getting bought. Like her foodie budget is cut waaaayy down. Like by a lot. And she's behind on some bills. And trying to figure out how to pay for her meds. Like ones she can't live without. Like her intsulins. And there definitely is NO hamm pizza. Sigh. And no camera (now, that can't be so bad, huh?)
Nobody wants to hear bad news. There is enough of it on here, what with furends getting sick and going over the Bridge and other money problems with some of our families and stuff. So we have been pretty quiet. We just purray hard for our furends in need and for something mama calls for-ti-tude for us.
We were once accused of being demanding about help, and we don't want to get into that. We really needed it then, and we really need it now, but mama won't ask, this time. She felt like she was slammed in the face last time, and doesn't want that to happen again. And doesn't want to bother anyone with more sad tales. And doesn't want anyone to feel obligated to help us when there are others who need help, too.
We really appreciated the help last time. We were sooooo grateful. Mama was so crazy with wondering how to survive. And we were blessed. Really blessed. There are some really great bloggers out here! Just imagine. No, just know. Cat (and woofie) bloggers ROCK.
But that was several years ago. And this time, mama is just very sad.
So that's what's happening here. We're trying to be brave, but mama just doesn't have the heart to blog when all she can think about is our problems. She has barely let me read other blogs.
Anyway, hope you had some really nice celebrations in the blogosphere as well as sad news. Like Cinco de Mayo and Mommy Day, and birthdays and gotcha days and welcome home parties and the Movie Premieres (now they are impressive, our Real Housecats. We are so proud of them!).
We will try to be more cheerful about things, and blog more. And mama will let me go to some of the celebrations, cause it does help me to get out a bit.
It's just very hard right now. And I have to snuggle a lot with mommy. A LOT.
ps. We don't have any straw hats here. Just a straw basket in the kitchen. And it's full of serving spoons and other kitchen stuff. But do visit some of the other blogs today and see what they are wearing !
