A Better Place

It's been nearly a week now since Maw got the news that her Grandma passed. Even now it's hard to believe she's really gone. The Alzheimer's had stolen the "real Grandma" from us, but every now & then, she would sneak away from its grasp & be herself, if only for a moment.
Maw's last visit with her was a good one. Her "I love you, Grandma" was answered in kind, and da Grandma even used Maw's name. That was a treat, at the time, and a comforting, treasured memory now.
I made a card fur Maw to let her know that I was sorry fur her loss & I told her da Grandma was in a better place. Maw was very touched by the card, since I had drawn sweet things on it, including a bridge leading up to a rainbow. The card took a while to make, especially since I was getting leaky eyes & didn't want to smudge the ink. It was all worth it, though, to see her smile again - like a lil beam of sunshine peeking through the clouds. I was quite proud of my artistry but must admit I didn't do it ALL by myself, I had a lot of help from Paw - he's got those handy thumbs! (We told you before that Paw was a keeper and this is just another example)
I haven't been on Twitter much at all this past week, as I was full-time comfort kitty. However, it's the caring, loving, endearing effect of the Anipal Community that is probably just what the doctor ordered, right about now.

Please, everyone, if there is someone in your life that you really love, never miss an opportunity to express it to them. You never know if you'll have another chance.

With love & gratitude,
Bizbee (& leaky-eyed Mawmy)

If You're Thankful And Ya Know It...

...Clap Your Paws!!!

*claps paws in a furry flurry, over and over again*

A big shout out to all da loving, kind & fantastical anipals on Twitter. I'm so very thankful fur you all!

I'm also mega thankful fur my family and our (blessedly climate-controlled) home. Maw & Paw put up with a LOT when it comes to me & my cattitude. Rumor has it that I'm a bit of a diva-boy (shocking, I know!). BTW, woe be unto the butt of whoever started that rumor, once I find you...Fair Warning.

Also, I'm ever so thankful fur my good health. I hope (knock on wood) that this continues as I age. I know some pals aren't so lucky & my heart goes out to them.

Speaking of aging, I'm thankful to look so young. Check me out, no wrinkles! And I don't even moisturize - go figure! ;0)

What are some of the things you all are thankful for? Say it LOUD, say it proud! I wanna hear it, right now, Now, NOW!!! (OK, I'm turning down the Diva Dial, sorry peeps).

Toodles fur now,
