A quick visit with darling Emma

It's been a busy weekend for cat-sitting and I was out the door late tonight with an unexpected phone call from a client. This lovely lady had an emergency in the city and her kitty needed an insulin shot for her diabetes. This was my first time doing the 'dirty deed' with Emma as she has just become diabetic last summer and I have not had the pleasure of caring for her recently. Emma is one of 5 cats owned by a wonderful family who like to say "they live with their cats". Emma is a lovely black and white persian with the familiar squishy face and the saucer eyes. Just a darling girl. So I rushed over, gathered up what was needed and in the wink of an eye, it was done. Before I left she came over to me and we played a game of "I got your paw" on the stairs. Love her to pieces.

I have cared for many diabetic cats over the years. Statistics show that 1 in 400 cats are diabetic and the numbers are growing. With proper care, diabetes should not alter a cats quality of life or its' life-span.

Along with getting to see Emma and Wilson (another of the cats in this household) I got a surprise when I walked in. There in the corner in the dining area was a huge (8 feet at least) fully-decorated with the most gorgeous of vintage and victorian decorations, CHRISTMAS TREE. oh GOODNESS......I WAS IN HEAVEN. This just makes me want to kick back with an egg-nog.


I hope to see these kitties again before Christmas because this lovely owner always has 3 large trees and 1 small one in her kitchen. Last year one of them was a theme tree all decked out with WALT DISNEY decorations. It was spectacular and made you feel like you were 8 yrs. old again. I do recall many little kitty stockings hanging on the mantel, too. :)

Dear God: Please have my mommy call Debbie to care for me over Christmas. She brings me toys and nip and she doesn't care if I cover her with my hair. She plays with me and carries me and sometimes we dance around the room. She gives me lots of attention because I am just a little kitty. She makes me happy and I luff her. Thank you.
hugs, Deb


  1. Oh wonderful for so many to have you able to care for their kitties in an emergency! I am getting close to being ready for trees. I still have Thanksgiving to enjoy!

  2. Thats cute..the kitty prayer! I think there are many trees going up about now, mine is going up next weekend! ;D

  3. I admit it...I am a SCROOGE! Not really, Hubby and I sorta do Christmas all year long, spoiling our friends, family cats and each-other. But with all our felines, a tree just isn't feasible. Though we HAVE been discussing decorating the Catio!

    My AngelBoy Fuzzy did very well for seven years with diabetes; he was nearly 19 when he passed.

  4. I have to say, my bah humbug feelings from last week are starting to fade! ;)

    I have a favorite thing to do with Daisy, which steve finds totally disgusting since he is allergic to her. I love to lift her over my head and nuzzel right into her soft belly with my nose and take a deep breath! Ah! Kitty! I know, I must be crazy! Cat Crazy! ha ha! I bet you have done it to a few kitties in your time too!

  5. The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and
    tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so
    she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
    I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
