Mancat Monday 2012 Review

Prancer Pie thinks this toenail is up for review, too.
Hi furriends, happy Mancat Monday!  This is the last one in 2012.  Mommy's put together a little review.

Well, we sold our ranch, our home, our Nana's home, and our Mommy's sister's home and built a big house.  Big Move coming soon.  (more on that later-yes, we will all be living together-sorta)

Princess and I weathered a very serious illness.  I still take thyroid gel.  Princess at 18+ yrs old, continues to have better lab results than all of us.  Go figure.

Princeton has lived with us a whole year now!  He went from homeless and starving to a very domineering, finicky, well, let's not get the Mommy started!

Precious continues to alternately terrorize and amaze us.  She has become very attached to the Mommy.  Mommy sucks that up.

Daddy had emergency gall-bladder surgery.  He recovered and we became very attached to his heating pad and blankie.

The human sister continues to get her four-year degree.  (This is her fifth year.) MOL!

Those are the things that stick in Mommy's very crowded and foggy mind.  Of course there's been lots of tears, fears, happiness, and heartbreaks.  We cherish each and every one, good and bad.

We wish every one of our furriends much love and happiness in the following year.  Be sure to hug your mancat (and womancat) today.  Purrs, y'all.

Hmm yes, that's much better.

  30. I don't think we've ever left a comment here, but I could be wrong. Either way I wanted to thank you for your excellent blog. We enjoy it very much. We know lurkers don't have a good reputation, but sometimes it's hard to break the ice. Also, for some reason, Google doesn't always work for us. So, we've enjoyed your blog and look forward to next year. We hope 2013 is full of love and happiness with joyful surprises around every corner.

  31. Great review! Have a Happy New Year! All the best in 2012.

    Prancer Pie, you kinda look like you know.
    Remember that Seinfeld episode? Where Jerry's "girlfriend of the moment" looked over to see him with his finger near his nose?
    "There was no pick!"

  38. Didja all stay up and listen to the boomies? We were in our humans laps just to make sure they didn't' get skeered and all, yanno.
