Weekend Update

Greetings from the decks of the Black Furrball!! It is time for the weekend update, and Baast! Do we have lots to update!

First of all, Dante would like to thank everyone for the birthday wishes. In honour of his 4 years on this earth, we celeybrated on both Saturday and Sunday by getting lots of treats and stinky goodness. We also got our claws trimmed on Sunday morning too, but we will ignore that for now. Mommy says we will have a party for him soon so that all of us can get together and have a good time! We think we will take the Black Furrball out on a cruise again, but this time we will be going to a new and never before visited locale. Keep in touch kitties, you will not believe where we will be partying. More details to come!!

Also on Saturday, Nana and Grandpa and Uncle Mark came over and we had lots of fun. Beaux and Samwise were very excited because Grandpa will always pet and pet them. And he did. Fagin was excited cause he got to attack Uncle Mark, which always makes him happy too!!

On Sunday, Fagin had a little scare and we want to tell you about it so you kitties will be careful too! Fagin loves to go out onto our screened porch and nap and hang out. Well, Sunday was very hot here (over 95 degrees) but Fagin seemed alright outside and laid in the shade with the ceiling fan on, and Mommy checked on him lots too. Well, in maybe 10 minutes Fagin went from being fine and happily sleeping to not fine - Mommy found him panting and shaking in the heat. Mommy quickly scooped him up and she said it was like picking up a rag doll Fagin was so limp and lifeless. She quickly brought him inside and laid him on the cool table. Fagin mostly perked right back up and immediately stopped panting, but it was still scary. Fagin was droopy the rest of the night but it could have been so much worse. Be careful outside kitties! We kitties love the heat so much but sometimes it can get bad for us very quickly!

Finally, we has a new crew member on the Black Furrball - a little bunny rabbit who has moved into our big azalea bush in our front yard! Daddy has seem him lots at night and discovered his house on Saturday. Mommy was afraid Daddy had scared him off but she saw him in the yard eating grass this morning. Mommy is wondering if anyone knows what a good treat would be for our new friend. She would like to leave him something nice that he would like to munch on.

That is the update from the Black Furrball. We hope all of you kitties and your beans have a nice and fast week at work!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

I am glad you are okay Fagin. Come visit us and lie in the sun--it's not so hot here!

Fagin, its a good thing your Mommy was home to rescue you. You need to stay inside for the next couple of days and recover. We are purring that nothing like this will happen to you again.

Dante, we are sorry we missed your birthday - we hope it was filled with nip and shrimp.

Bunnies like all sorts of veggies and fruits - just make sure they get washed well first because some of the pesticides that they use to keep buggies and critters away are harmful to bunnies. Broccoli, strawberries, carrots, cabbage - stuff like that. They also LOVE Timothy Hay.

Name: Mr. Hendrix said...

Oh Fagin! You poor guy. That is an important safety tip for our outdoor and screen porch loving friends. You stay inside the cold air today so you're ready to dance and play tonight!

Dante, Bendrix and I are totally bummed we missed your birthday!! My beans had company over and mommy didn't even turn the computer on all weekend! I told her when the Black Furball sets sail, we're going to make up for lost time.

Ethel is the name of my great grandma that just passed away. We will purr and pray for her. We're also asking my great grandma to look in on her and keep her well.


PS stop in on Diva Kitty and the fluffies for good tips on feeding rabbits! they know all about them

Oh my goodness...Fagin are you OK now?! Stay inside where it's cool and drink lots of water.

We can't wait to find out about the next adventure.

PB 'n J said...

Oh my paws and whiskers - how did I miss your Birthday?! That darned Mommy, always off doing things instead of paying attention to us kitties! It sounds as though you had a wonderful day and I do hope that there is a party so that we can celebrate together.

Your Adoring Pirate Girl,

p.s. We're all soooo furry glad that Fagin is ok, kittens can be so sill sometimes. Mommy says that Bert doesn't have the sense to come in from the rain, sounds like Fagin is similar :-)

muffinmidi said...

Poppy Q said...

Fagin, we hope you have recovered from your heatstroke. Luckily when it is hot, I can go and hide in the house where it is usualy shady and cooler.

If you decide to settle for half fairings, Hogan Online you should know that they include only the windscreen and extend up to just below the handlebars. Quarter fairings however, Franklin Marshall Hoodies include only the windscreen and fairings around the headlight. Windscreens in quarter fairings are often light and scratch resistant and are useful in shielding individuals from rain and wind. Nike Air Max 2009 If you decide to choose the bally pan fairings, you should know that they minimize aerodynamic lift and go up to just below the engine.
