Sawyer Update

Before we get to Sunday Selfies, and the celebration of Astrid and Kitty Cat Chronicles’ Sampson’s third anniversary, I know many of you are waiting for a Sawyer update.

He had a quiet night at the ER Vet with no additional seizures. Dad Tom checked on him early yesterday morning and got the okay to pick him up. He spent the day and evening snoozing, which I expect he’ll do for a few days. He’s eaten his meals and gotten his meds.

Like most animals, Sawyer doesn’t liked being hospitalized and stuck in a cage. He whapped some of the ER Vet employees. He got mad at me as well and sunk his claws into my face and bit my lip. Luckily he didn’t break the skin with his bite.

Dad Tom and I and Sawyer are overwhelmed by the outpouring of purrs, prayers, POTP, love and support. This blogging community is made up of the most compassionate an caring people. Thank you for being our friends and caring about our little guy and all the Kitties Blue.

Dad Tom will continue to let everyone on Facebook know how Sawyer is doing, and I will continue to update here on the blog.

Sunday Selfies: Week #254

It would seem appropriate for Sawyer to have the selfie today (He did get a welcome home photo.), but Astrid gets the honor as it is her anniversary. Her selfie is a card for husband Sampy.




Prior to celebrating the anniversary, we invite you to link up your selfie. Here’s those hopping tips we like to include to help any newbies who might be joining us.

  • The link to add your selfie to the hop is below.
  • You also will find below the code to use if you’d like the hop to appear on your blog.
  • Posting on Sundays is not necessary to join.
  • You do not need to be a cat to enter. All anipals are welcome regardless of species.
  • The hop remains open for entries through Thursday midnight.
  • Please be so kind as to display our badge and/or link to The Cat on My Head.
  • Take the opportunity to visit some of the other hop-alongs and make some new friends or reconnect with some old ones.

Party Time

As he always does, Mau baked a cake in his Cat Scout Bake Shop. We also have champagne, lemonade for the youngsters and a wide variety of other noms.

Thanks for joining us for Sunday Selfies and Astrid and Sampy’s Anniversary.

We saw the request for POTP on Ruby’s blog, so followed the link to see how Sawyer is doing. Many purrayers (well, at least the best that 2 dogs and 1 person can do).

We love our kitties so, in good times and in bad. Having more than one in the house can make things interesting; one celebrating, another not feeling well. We are purring for all!

Happy Anniversary, my sweet! I must be a terrible husband because I thought our anniversary was tomorrow, the 23rd! I’m sorry I missed it. I guess Mom and I messed up the dates. Anyway, you look so beautiful, as always. The day we got married was the happiest day of my life. I love you and send a kiss for every anniversary celebrated by anyone in the world!
Your Sampy

You are doing everything you can for Sawyer and even though he is a bit upset about having to go to the V-E-T and all, he knows you still luv him.

ANNIVERSARY WISHES, Astrid & Sampy! May you continue to celebrate many more anniversaries together. And what a pawty! The cake is delicious! I saved a bit of frosting on my chin for later. Tee hee hee. Hugs and kisses.

I send a ton of purrs and hugs to you Sawyer, and your parents. I’m so glad you are home where you belong. It is always the very best to recuperate in your own bed.
An emergency trip to the Vet clinic is extremely scary for all

Happy Anniversary to you Astrid and your husband Sampy. Lovely celebration – here’s to you two (*clink*). As for little Sawyer, we are so happy he’s home and seems to have recovered so well from his very bad seizure. It would be our prayer that he never has another one – but with a seizure disorder of course that’s uncertain. We just are happy he has the Kitties Blue Cat Daddy and Mom to help him through……!

Hugs, Teddy

The Menagerie Mom June 23, 2019 at 12:15 am

I am so glad that Sawyer is home and continuing to recover by your side. He is such a strong little guy. I can only imagine how stressful this must be for all of you, and you’re all in my prayers. The kitties are also sending lots and lots of purrs your way.

Angel Rosie was also one of those who was not too keen on being hospitalized. She was very inconsistent with her hospital behavior, but she would do anything from refusing to move (even urinating on herself where she sat) to hissing and using her paws to smack people around. She was most known for refusing to take her meds and making med time a real fight, both at the vet and at home.

We are wishing beautiful Astrid and handsome Sampy the happiest, most purrfect anniversary!
