We Were Given The Illuminating Blogger Award

Happy Friday all! It's Cody and I am excited to share some flattering news with you! Mom and I were honored to be given another award, this time it is the:
Isn't it nice and shiny? Can't put it on our mantle mostly because we don't HAVE a mantle and even if we did this isn't tangible, but I digress... we can keep it close to our heart and that's what matters most!

We were pleased to be given this fine award from our friends at Twinkletoe Tails, thanks guys!!! One of the requirements of this award is I must tell you an "illuminating" story about myself.....

After careful consideration and a large dose of laziness, I couldn't come up with a thing!! Not even a kibble-sized tidbit. LIGHT of my complete and utter lack of creativity, I have decided to share these with you of ME basking in LIGHT! Now THAT'S "illuminating!!" MOL!

Now...I am  supposed to pass this on to FIVE other kitties that I  would love to hear illuminating stories about, (or you can be lazy like me and just use "illuminating" photos). I normally don't pass these things on, but hey, why should I have all of this FUN by myself? are just a few of the kitties that I would like to have pawticipate in the fun!!






Have a great weekend all!!!!!!

Love, Cody

  30. After the horrors of this ONE stone, the Human can't even 'magine what it would be like to have lots--oh noes!!!! She was at teh 'murgencee for a few hours Friday nite/Caturday a.m. while they did a CAT scan and gived her a morphine shot and did a bunch of other stuff. Then they sended her home with pain medicine (that makes her kinda sick to her stomach) and anti-nausea meds which also make her feel kinda bad, and a strainer to pee in. It's coming up on 48 hours and nothing yet. She felt not-so-bad yesterday, but a few hours ago today (Sunday) she started having a lot of pain again (not as bad as Friday night though). She hopes it comes out SOON! At the 'murgencee they said to call the doctor if it had not comed out by Thursday but that just seems like FOREVER to her!

    She's drinking lots of water and cranberry juice and a little coffee (not much). She was hungry earlier but now she's feeling kinda sick again.

    Any words of wisdom????

  31. @Spitty's Mom I am sooooooo sorry you have to go through this!! OMG!!! I sooooo know!!! I will tell you that contrary to popular belief cranberry juice is NOT good for kidney stones, bladder infections, yes, stone can also be so small that you wouldn't even know that you passed once you have passed it. Did they say how large it is? When I pass sand it isn't even get pain from the sand too. Also...a stone can move and just lodge somewhere else and then you will often feel no pain. OMG my heart goes out to you!!! I have passed 7 on my own (large ones) and have had about 6 lithotripsies (another one is scheduled for July 11) they are NO FUN!!
