YES, Albert does have a hand in bringing Jingle bells to us. He has several times done things that Albert always did. I got Albert when his eyes weren't open. He never saw another cat until he was almost 2. He learned to purr and growl form Miss Kitty but never acted like a cat. He was my shadow and friend. When I didn't fell well or had nightmares he would rub my arm or pat my check.
In his last year his cat bed was next to me on my bed. He would sleep with paw on my arm. If I moved his bed he would circle to lay down then pull himself closer to me and be half in half out. Then he started trying to sleep on my pillow. This was new and annoying. Thought about it and got one of my old pillows and used old T shirts to cover and change easily. He liked one with rhinestones and would want the lamp on so they would sparkle. I have set of pillow slips I made with embroidery bright colored flower and he sat on the back of the couch and watched every stich I made. They were for king size bed pillows that I hadn't used in 7 years. When i brought them out to use because I gotten new big bed pillow Albert was so excited he was talking and wiggling. The slip was still longer and I put the embroidery side toward him. He patted the slip and me and burbled for several minutes. He was so happy to see that he just patted pillow and my cheek every time we layed down.
He was so little from his top weight of 19 lbs. to 8 1/2 lbs. Being long haired black silk with a surprising under coat of thick curly grey. He didn't look bad he just went back to baby weight. The wonderful Vet instead of putting funnel on him after surgery, put a baby onesie on him. It was so cute. We got more and called him Pajama Sam.
When he was a baby his hair was very black but the tips were grey and when were watching TV with lights out all we could see was grey outline of The Ghost Cat.
I would watch him sleeping making sure he was breathing and he would wake up yawn , see me watching smile and reach for me with both paws. Then he would burble and pat me. He always wanted to get up go downstairs to cat box then water fountain. (he loved water that's what kept him with me for almost 20yrs). In all the years he never made a mistake with cat box matters. Did have some hairballs but he had 2 spots on Tile or wood floor.
On his last day he wet his bed a little but don't think he was aware. My little guy was a joy for so long. We had many names for him and he loved them all. He would walk and talk to me and Gary all the time. If we had company he was right in the middle of it and talking. So many years of love and friendship and Joy. Memories to last forever.
Thanks for much needed hugs Miss Tracy.
Thank you for sharing those lovely memories. Albert was special in many ways. I feel Jingle Bells will help with your healing. He needs you and you need him. So will too become special. As all our close friends are. They have their places in are hearts.
Some more hugs for you and your family, including your new little Jingle Bells. Stay safe.
We can hear how much you loved and miss Albert. The way you speak of Albert is the way we talk about our Brandy. He was our heart, although we've had 3 other dogs through the years, Brandy was unashamedly the most loved and loving. Now you have a new little one to teach and give your affection to. They aren't the same, but hopefully your new furbaby will fill a little of the hole in your heart the way Bo has ours.
Hooray! I got my first Vaccine (Moderna) today. So far, so good. I'll let you know what tomorrow brings. I go back April 15 for my second shot.
I got my 2nd shot today (Moderna). When I got the first shot last month, the next day I woke up with a terrible headache. Was scheduled to watch the little kid-o the next and when my daughter brought him in she said that he was sleepy. I said great so I am, and my arm is sore. What a wonderful nap, felt better afterwards. My last shot was about 6 hours ago and all I can say right now, is that I am hungry. I ate soon after I got home and normally doesn't eat again until the next day. I don't think that has anything to do with the shot, but what can I say have eaten 6 jello cups.
So how did your day go? Any side effects or COVID arm? April 15th can’t come soon enough
Yay! Fully vaccinated! Good for you!
