UNDER CONSTRUCTION!

Since it has been quite a long time since we have been active, we are going to be Under Construction for a while - trying new fonts, designs, and updating our sidebar stuff. Hopefully we will get it how we like it soon so it won't change too much!

Also - Can someone tell me how to get rid of the giant gap below this notice - I cannot figure out how to do it - thanks!!

Winnie had to go to the bridge.


I got an email from Chrystal, who is Winnie's foster mom last night - unfortunatly I didn't see it til this morning because I had a bad migraine when I got home and didn't have the computer on. Here is what she said - it is not happy news.

Winnie started having seizures at 4:45pm and she is doing very poorly. We made an emergency run to the vet and prognosis is grim. I'll be up all night with her, but I don't know if she has the strength to get through till morning. High fever, seizures, she has stopped eating and drinking.
I will be posting about her tomorrow - either way. I feel so blessed to have so many people wishing the best for her. If you have any way to do it, please let your readers know for me what this means and to keep her in their thoughts, prayers, and hearts.
Thank you so much.


Sadly, she posted this morning that Winnie had to go to the bridge - you can find the post HERE. I know how sad this is for her and all of us - so please go by and send them some purrs.

We went by and visited. Many thanks to Chrystal and her family for taking Winnie in. Even though her life was so short, we think that it was a good one in the end. It's heartbreaking, though.

We went and gave our deepest purrs over losing Winnie. At the very least, she knew she was loved and cared deeply for even if it was just for one day.

We unfortunately read the sad news about poor little Winnie. The only silver lining from her passing is that she knew kindness & love from her foster mother before she left.

We went over & left some purrs for the new family she left behind

We were very sad to hear dear little Winnie had gone to the Bridge. Sometimes life seems so unfair. At least we know Winnie was surrounded by love and cared for when she died.

How come even though I'm a sap I go read everything you suggest? I read that post and the next day's . . . Dang! Let the floodgates open again. Lucky for that kitten to peacefully pass away in the arms of such a loving caretaker and her family.
