Sister Saturday with Gracie


Brian's Home.  Adopt cats, we deserve it!
Well hello everyone!  I sure am happy, happy, happy to be home!  What an ordeal I had, seriously.  I have been sick since Thanksgiving and ended up spending 10 days in the hospital.  Oh my, that is one scary place.

As you may remember, I was rescued as a wee kitten from a dog attack.  Well, there was a big dog underneath me and a dog right beside me.  I think I was in the oxygen cage for at least 7 days.  I couldn’t breath good, but I could wheeze good.  I had needles in by leg that they called an IV, but I called it “dang that hurts”, cause it did.  But I just wasn’t up to struggling over it.  I had xrays, shots, pills, xrays, shots, pills.  My Dad and Mom came to visit and my Dad came every evening to stuff food in my mouth because I didn’t feel like eating on my own.

I was really in bad shape, bad, bad shape.  In the middle of the night on November 30th I tried to go visit my HubbyCat Angel Alex at the Bridge.  I was very close to joining my love, but Angel Alex wouldn’t have any part of it.  Alex told me absolutely not, it wasn’t my time and even though he missed me terribly, our being together would just have to wait.  Alex told me how much he loved me and then told me to keep my cute little butt at home with my Brother and Sisters and my Mom and Dad.  He was as serious as I’ve ever seen him so I fought like a crazy woman to make him happy.  You know what?  Alex was right, it wasn’t my time and I am happy being loved at home and laying under the Christmas Tree.

Oh, that’s another thing.  While I was in the hospital the house got decorated for Christmas.  I wasn’t sure what was going on when I first got home because lots of things were moved around, but as soon as I spotted the Christmas Tree I figured it all out.  Yes, we’ve got pictures, and I’ll ask Dad to share some of them next week.

As scary as that hospital place is, the humans that work there were awfully kind and very nice.  They took such good care of me and whatever I needed someone was always around to make sure I got it.  My Dad told me that every evening when he left the intake humans out front always wanted to know if I ate my dinner.  There is just isn’t a good way to thank humans like that, they saved my life.  My Dad tells me I have to be super careful since I am down to 7 remaining lives now.  I used one this time and one early one with the dog attack.

Anywho, I’m still taking medicine and will be for at least another week.  But I can deal with it because there’s no place like home.  You probably saw the update Brian did yesterday, the pneumonia is gone.  Now I just have to fight off this respiratory stuff.  But I can do it, right?

Okay, that’s enough about me, I’ve missed all of you and now you can tell me what you’re up to and what I missed.  See you soon!  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!!  More Forever Homes More Often!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Oh Gracie, we are so glad that you decided to stick around. We just knew you could make it and we know that you will continue to get better. You are one tough lady. So keep up the good work. Take care all of you.

Gracie we were so happy to hear you were back home where you belong and doing so well….one more week of medicine isn’t so bad now is it?! You’re with all your family and it’s Christmas which is “family time” with all the decorations and fun. Just take it easy – I’m sure napping is the best thing for you right now…..just relax and enjoy the love because you certainly have it there AND from all your friends here in the blogosphere.

Holiday Hugs to you and EVERYONE!

Gracie, your post made my mommy’s eyes leak…for real and for true. I am so grateful you are clear of the pneumonia and almost there (well). Eat your food and enjoy the love. You deserve it. I didn’t know your story at the beginning ad that made mommy really really sad. But thank goodness you were rescued, you precious girl.

It’s so good to see you well, Gracie. Alex was right… your family still needs you, and they’re obviously so happy to have you home. Rest up and let that medicine do its work to finish getting you all the way healthy again. Big purrs from all of us.

Gracie, I don’t know if I will be able to type… I am crying to hard…. You have no idea how thankful we are that you listened to Angel Alex – although we know you didn’t have much choice. He is very forceful and persuasive when he needs to be. And in this case, I know he wasn’t going to take no for an answer…. You coming home, and rejoining your family, was the best present, and the best way you could show your husband how much you love him. And him telling you it wasn’t time was the best… Read more »

Dear Gracie, You look FAN-TAS-TIC!! I don’t even see any little shavy places though I bet you have a couple. Honestly, it’s so undignified that they remove bits of our furs — as if we don’t feel bad enough when we’re at the Stabby Place!! Anyway, it is so great to see you home with your family, Human and Feline, for Christmas. You keep having those nice nappies under the tree–nappies are SO restorative! XOXOXO

We were all purring and woofing and had all our paws crossed for you and your furblings during those challenging weeks. We are so happy you are all well on your way to a full recovery and that Angel Alex told you very firmly but lovingly that your time wasn’t up. xoxo

We are so super happy that you are well on your way to being all better, sweet Gracie. And especially that you are back home! That Alex is a smart mancat, and it was so gallant of him to be so honest and adamant that you still had some lives left here on earth.

Our tree is up, too. We’re enjoying sleeping under it (well, Moosey and Zoe are). 🙂

Hugs to you and your whole family!

Gracie, you can’t believe how much we’ve missed you. I’m so glad–and I know your mom and dad are too–that you’re home and healthy. You look wonderful! One more week of pills isn’t too bad.

Enjoy those naps under the tree!

We will look forward to seeing those photos of you under the tree. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

MEOW Gracie it is so good to hear from you. Socks agrees about the hospital being scary, he had a dog near him too. And while he likes our dogs he says strange dogs are different.

We has a Christmas Tree this year and decorations and everything. Maybe we will get pics with the tree.

So very very Thankful that Gracie is back home. Just not quite time to be with Alex yet, dear Gracie, but when it is time – Alex will be there waiting for you. I could tell you a story about my angel Jason…the dearest black kitty there ever was. before he went over the rainbow bridge, he ran back to tell me, “I see Aone (Ah-wun)!” Aone, a petite little white kitty was the love of his life. Aone had gone home several years earlier from kidney failure. Our family was so devastated when Aone went home and even more… Read more »

You have been through so much and are so fortunate to have such a wonderful family to help you out. We are thrilled that you are so much better and did not leave us. Enjoy the decorations…this year you may even be able to take a few ornaments off the tree without getting in trouble 😉

I am very happy to see you looking so well Gracie. I will be happier still when that nasty old respiratory infection is gone.
I am glad that you took notice of Angel Alex when he told you it is not your time to join him yet. Don’t worry, he will be waiting for you when it is time.
