Wordy Wednesday

The other day, Mommy looked at Fagin and was struck but what a difference 10 months can make. Just look:

Then: An itty bitty 10 day old kitty called "Little Kitty" or "LK" as the blogosphere came to name him. He weighed less than a pound and had a very uncertain future. His last sibling has just left for the Bridge and LK was all alone but had some humans and kitties and woofies and buns from all over the world who were purring and pulling for him to just live another day.

Now: A 10 month old kitty named Fagin whohas been named Quarter Master of the Black Furrball. He weighs, as of last weekend, 13 pounds. He is no longer an orphaned kitty, but has 4 bro-furrs (2 kitties and 2 woofies) and a Mommy and Daddy too. Mommy is already planning his One Year Birthday Celebration and is trying to convince herself that yes, he can date in 2 months. How they grow!!!

PS: We wanted to let everyone know hat we are sorry for not getting around to visit our friends. Mommy is very sick with what is basically pneumonia and gets tired and sleepy so easy. Please know that we are thinking of you all and hope to see you all soon!! Lots of love! - Purrageous Pirates

I remember when Fagin was so tiny and we were so worried about him! They grow up so quickly.

Fagin you're 13 lbs?! I bet you're going to be the biggest mancat in your house ;-)

I'm sorry your Mommy has pneumonia. That is a very bad thing to have. Make sure your Mommy rests all the time. I hope she will feel better soon :-)

My Fagin - how far you've come. Mom is watching her nephew's cat grow in much the same way. He was just 5 weeks old when he was adopted into the family and at 10 weeks, it seems like he has already doubled in size.

Fagin really has grown!

Sorry to hear your mum is not well - sending big purrs to her to get better. Would it help if I came over and lay on her chest?

Kellie The Orange Cat said...

Oh my gosh - Fagin, you are such a big mancat now! Sniff, seems like just yesterday you were an itty bitty baby...

You guys be sure to take care of your Mommy, it sounds like she needs lots of cuddles and purrs. I will be sure to purray that she feels better soon.

My Mum has a very painful UTI right now and I am being extra helpful by sleeping on her tummy like a hot water bottle : )

Fagin, you have grown into a big beautiful boy. Your parent must be so proud.
I hope your mommy is feeling better. My mommy wrote her on Facebook last month, only it turns out some of her e-mails didn't get through. Did she get the e-mail?
Take care.

Fagin is growing into a fine looking mancat to be.

Don't worry about visiting. Do it when you can.

Wow Fagin, you have grown into a handsome nearly mancat.
We hope your mum soon feels better. You have to do mancat duties and help her recover. It's good mancat in training exercise.
