Happy FOUR-Year Ampuvesary Purrkins!
Today is all about MEEEE.
We invite you all to our virtual pawty. WHOO HOO!
Grab your furmily and a bowl, fork, or spoon and celebrate with us, please.
Tuna Steaks for Everyone!
Mum made Tuna steaks for our celebration. Whoa, they are the best. No comparison to a canned tuna! We ate every ounce of our one ounce lol.
Two steaks made 7 ounces a ton FYI if anyone else decides to try tuna steaks. I got them from Whole Foods and pan-seared them in olive oil for 1.5 minutes each side.
The boys highly suggest that you do they devoured it. YUM
We got prizes too!

Was in no way a celebration day; it was terrifying. Purrkins was having surgery to remove a limb that we said to take off. UGH! Waiting, wondering if we were doing what was best for Purrkins! I was sewing Purrkins baby onesies anxiously waiting to hear that surgery went well! I second-guessed our decision once a couple of days later when I brought Purrkins home. & never since.
Eternally grateful for Tripawds!
My heart goes out to anyone going thru this journey anytime, let alone in a pandemic. (hugs) We are eternally grateful for Tripawds, the community the love, support, ongoing education thru all these years. A former dog site who graciously gave us cats a home, a platform, and a much-needed handbook. Cool Tips for Tripawd Cats.
None of us know what we are going to get as in time/calendar days when we receive that C diagnosis and make that horrible decision to take a limb off! We make the best-informed decision out of LOVE and HOPE and Pray for quality of life and, of course, time!
We have been blessed beyond measure and do not take one day for granted & we hope for many more!
Purrkins is our inspiration every day! Mark calls him superman & I made him a little cape for today.
Purrkins says, what is this, Mum? I need no costume or cape; everyone can see I’m a super kitty on three.
Nothing stops this boy like it or not Purrkins says, what missing leg Mom? I’m fine. Stop worrying about me. (If only i could;)
The boys also celebrated double digits; they turned 10 on June 30th!
We do our best not concentrating on and reading about C every day; it began to steal our joy and dim our light. I made us all a promise when Purrkins was diagnosed to slow down and enjoy every day. Removing Purrkins from my laptop was not keeping that promise!
I can now say I am keeping that promise.
We are living in the now no matter what the now looks like! The boys see this virus as a good thing; they now have their Dad home full-time (early retirement), and they are missing out on vet appts;) Win-win for them. (I can’t find a way to pass them off curbside yet. UGH)
We hope you are all staying safe and well! Thanks for joining us!
