Nearly Two Weeks Now...

My laptop went totally... totally.  I had to reformat it to get the dvd-rw to read cds & for it to read the usb ports for anything but the mouse again.  As I'm sure everycat and feeder who has to deal with computers understands, having to do this when one is a mom who has problems with a) green papers b) memory (physical and mental!) and c) nothing to put the back-ups onto, I'm now sans a lot of things.  Email addresses, bookmarks, pictures, graphics, programs.  Wheeeee!  And given the type of pain I've been in lately, it may take some time before I'm up to snuff.  At least I'm able to put new pictures up which will help with my depression (now if I could just afford someone to drive me to the doctors' offices & clean up my house!!).  Sadly, Thomas has not come home.  He hasn't shown up at the animal shelter.  We've had signs up all around the neighborhood.  His brother stopped calling for him after a few days which is unusual behavior in the Horde.  Jennifer says that this means that Thomas has either crossed safely over the Bridge (he is 14 after all, even though he's healthier than his littermate) or that he's found a family that needs him more than we do.  Thomas is a wonderful, loving and handsome cat.  If he's found another family (which, honestly, would not surprise me one itty bitty bit!!) I would be okay with that.  As much as I love and cherish him, if the Lord needs him to be with someone else, I'm sure there's a good reason.  And he is so good for people who need love and affection.  In other news...

 "I have been diligently picking up all of the Ninja skills my
brothers are teaching me!  I can now work the remote control!!
I've also started jumping when I race down the hall!!"

 "As you can see, I'm helping dad feel better by letting him
scratch me... a LOT!!  Ummm, dad?  You missed a spot!"

 "We tried to help mom get a good picture of the peacock
and two peahens in our neighborhood but they didn't cooperate.
We stay far away from them because mommy said so."

"As you can see, Audrey and I have been busy guarding
mom's laptop while she & Star have been trying to fix it.  I've
decided that Audrey isn't too bad 99% of the time." - Knives

"True.  We've been hanging out on the bed some.  Don't tell mom but I let him put his head on my butt during one of our naps.  Oh yeah, and we've sniffed noses a few times too.  ::narrows eyes::  Just as long as he doesn't touch the hair bands.  All hair bands belong to ME!!" - Audrey

"Mom got her mammogram done!  We have a whole section
dedicated to breast cancer in our shop.  I'm going to have to work
on seeing if I can track down more of my mom's stuff." - Star

"The Teenage Mutant Ninja Kitty Horde and our Feeders really really
really (no, really!) appreciate the outpouring of prayers & purrs & everything we've gotten from everycat (and all the other species too).  Even when our mom couldn't get onto the 'puter, we all knew that all of you were out there thinking of us.
Thank you for your support."
