#CatThursday - Happy Thanksgiving...and a tribute to Mom's beloved dog #cats



Welcome to the weekly meme that celebrates the wonders and sometime hilarity of cats! Join us by posting a favorite LOL cat pic you may have come across, famous cat art or even share with us pics of your own beloved cat(s). It's all for the love of cats! (share your post in the Mr. Linky below)


My mom's dog, Flencie got real sick over the past couple of weeks. She wouldn't eat, no matter what mom tried, and every time she drank water, she would vomit. We thought it might be her teeth. She was older (almost 15) and her breath was getting bad. Mom took her to the vet on Monday and the vet said she suspected kidney failure. They ran tests, gave her fluids and then sent mom home with promise of test results on Tuesday. They called Mom late Tuesday and told her Flencie's levels were the highest they had ever seen and they couldn't believe she hadn't died already. The vet had already talked with Mom about the need to put her to sleep if it was indeed kidney failure so Mom was prepared. She took her in yesterday morning and she passed away in Mom's arms at 8:45 am. She was a sweet little dog. She came to my mom quite by accident. My grandmother was very elderly and she couldn't keep Flencie so mom took her. Mom is not really a dog person. She largely prefers cats. But she came to love Flencie more and more over the years. This was very hard for her, especially considering she had to do the same with her sweet Emma last year around this time. 💔 We all loved Flencie and she will be missed so much. May she find health and happiness, and perhaps Emma, across the Rainbow Bridge. 💜


Now on to happier topics. Even though we lost one of our own, we still have so much to be thankful for, as I'm sure (and I hope) you do too. Wishing you all a very Happy Thanksgiving. Stay safe and don't eat too much.

#CatThursday - #Authors and #Cats (67) Don DeLillo and Happy 16, Gabe!

The second Cat Thursday of each month is Authors and Cats Thursday. Each time I will feature an author with their cat(s), or pictured with a cat(s).


Don DeLillo celebrates his birthday on November 20 (1936). This is the first image I've ever found of him with a cat. What a cute cat!

Don DeLillo is an American author best known for his novels, which paint detailed portraits of American life in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. He currently lives outside of New York City.

Among the most influential American writers of the past decades, DeLillo has received, among author awards, a National Book Award (White Noise, 1985), a PEN/Faulkner Award (Mao II, 1991), and an American Book Award (Underworld, 1998). (Goodreads)

Today is my son Gabe's 16th birthday! I'm so proud of the young man he's becoming. He's doing so well in school and loves being on the football team, and playing guitar. My first born is a treasure and I love him so. Happy Birthday, son! 🎂💜

#CatThursday - October's aftermath #Cats

First off, I just want to say that I know I'm dreadfully behind on visiting your blogs. I apologize. That's part of the reason for today's blog title. October was so busy...there's an aftermath. lol

I hope everyone had a safe and fun Halloween. This was the first year my boys (almost 16 and almost 15) decided to not dress up and go trick or treating. I got them some candy, we stayed in and watched horror movies. Who knows, they may decide to participate next year, which is perfectly fine with me. But it kind of felt like the end of an era. 😿

The face after a month of scares.
