Family Friday

As you can see by Dante's picture, there is not much sleeping going on in our household at the moment. Mostly it is because of things happening with our Daddy's family. Last night the decision was made that his sister will undergo another surgery today around noon. She has developed a post operative staph infection so they need to do another surgery to make her better. On top of all of this, Daddy's father had to have angioplasty yesterday because one of his arteries was 95% blocked and they were afraid that his heart would attack him. They kept him in the hospital overnight but will release him today. The worst part of all this is that this is going on in two states! The sister is near us but the father is an entire state away. Mommy and Daddy are thankfully staying here with us since leaving would leave his sister all alone. Please send purrs that they get better soon and that no other family member gets sick!! Thanks!!

On a lighter note, we were so happy to see so many new recruits for the Black Furrball crew! Would you kitties like to have the pirate cat picture for your blog? We were thinking we could customize it with your pirate names! It's just a rough draft, but maybe it could look something like this:



Captain Jack : Dante! I was only playing around! *blushes*
Dante: Hahahaha! Look at him blush!! What do you think Miss Boo? Do you like it?

Anyway, if anyone wants one, leave us your pirate cat name and an email and we'll send ya one!!

Miss Peach>(^,^)< said...

Oh my heavens I will keep you all in my purrrrayers for a full recovers of the famble beans! I hope you do not think me too ungracious of a kitty for taking such a long time to return your visit. You can only imagine how happy I was to see you come cheer me on while I was so very sick. Mommy was heartbroken and thought for sure I would not regain any of my spirit and was prepared for the worst. But I was worth a small miracle. With your purrrayers and some good medicine, I have regained my strength day by day. Mommy would not have made it through her worries about me without your comfort. Each night we keep you in our prayers and wish you endless Blessings this Thanksgiving season.
Love and hugs from our house to yours, Miss Peach and the mommy
