Thank You Friends
I am overwhelmed by all the birthday wishes and visitors to my party. Your outpouring of love has touched my heart and Mom and Dad’s hearts as well. I even got some more beautiful cards, which I will share at the end of the post.
Unfortunately my day sucked, as you may have guessed from the title of this post.
I had a violent grand mal seizure early in the day. I was on the stairs when it started, and I fell through the spindles (remember, I’m a little guy). I fell to the table below, knocking off about 10 framed photos, and then landed on the floor in the corner next to the radiator. Before Mom could grab me I ended up behind the radiator. By the time she got me out, I had shredded her left arm, right hand and shirt. I didn’t mean to hurt her. I don’t know what’s happening when I’m having a seizure.
Good news: The seizure subsided on its own after several minutes. And I didn’t sustain any injuries in my fall.
I didn’t think anything could really save my day until…
I found a mousey!
Mom and Dad have no idea where it game from, and I am not telling. We never get mousies in the house in the summer, so I know it was my special birthday treat. It was already dead when Mom discovered I had it. And guess what? She didn’t take it away from me right away. She let me throw it around in the upstairs hallway while the other Kitties Blue watched me. When she finally wanted to give that mousey a nice burial in the trash, I got treats to give him up. So my day started out cwappy and ended G-R-E-A-T!
My Birthday Cards
I showed off three of my cards yesterday, and I received three more. My first card is from Valentine at Noir Kitty Mews. Thank you, Valentine!
My second card is from BellaDharma who lives at The Purrfect Pad. Love and huggies right back to you.
This is the cool card from Timmy, Einstein, Miss Fitz, Buddy Budd, Rumpy and Toby. They all live together with Dad Pete at Tomcat Commentary by Tim. You guys and girl rock!
Thanks again, dear friends. I am a super lucky cat no matter what kind of day I have! I love you all.
Purrs and paw-pats, Sawyer
Boo and hisses to a seizure trying to crash your pawrty…but glad you did not need to see the vet that day.
That mousie sounds like a ton of fun! Maybe it wanted out of the heat??
Purrs and hugs!
Sawyer, we’re so sorry your day started off so rocky. We’re glad you’re feeling better now, and that you got a real live mousey for your birthday! Purrs and prayers to you!
Sawyer we are all so sorry to hear how your day started and that Mom got hurted helping you. We are really glad you werent hurt in your fall. How exciting that things turned around and you got a secret gift of a mousie. They sure are fun when they sneak in and if you are furst to find them Wheeee. We are so happy you liked your card and send tons of purrs so you are good to go my friend.
All of us at the Tomcat Home and Dad too
Sawyer, we are sorry your day started off so poorly. We hope you and Mom are both doing better, and send you both, and Dad Tom so much love and purrs and POTP.
Good job with the mousey, and making sure you got a fair trade for it.
I am sorry you had such an awful day, Sawyer, but very glad you didn’t injure yourself in that fall. I am also glad you got that mousie so your day could end better than it started.
OMFP (Oh My Fluffy Paws), Sawyer, I was biting my nails when I read that you fell! But thank the heavens that you didn’t have any injuries! It was sure kind of your momma and dad to let you have some birthday fun with that mousie. You definitely deserved some good excitement after what you’ve been through. Luvs and hugs.
Oh Sawyer – we are so glad you came out of your seizure by yourself and so sorry it happened…but glad your birthday turned out pretty well after all!
We sure hope your Mom gets better quickly- she knows better than anybody that you did not mean to hurt her.
Purrayers and POTP to all of you !
Happy Belated Birthday Sawyer. I hope something can be done about those seizures. That’s no way to live and enjoy life. At least life gave you shmousie.
Sawyer we are so sorry about your very bad day. Glad it ended up great. How’s your Mom.
Mom knows all about Grand Mal seizures. They are no fun.
P. S. Sawyer we both will be thinking of you and sending lots of purs to you and your Mom. Get Well Soon.

Sawyer I’m so glad your day ended better than it started!!!
Sawyer, we are glad that you didn’t get hurt from the fall. Hopefully your birthday day ended well with finding that mousie. Love the beautiful cards you received. Thanks for sharing. Have a great day.
Mom, are you okay?
Aww, Sawyer, what a wacky day, but birthday days are supposed to be full of surprises, no? Okay, well, not BAD surprises. Your pawrents have more courage than I, ’cause I would have screamed like a little girl until The Hubby took away that carcass.
Brave Sawyer, I’m glad what started out scary ended up happy. The best post-birthday wishes to you handsome boy. Sending healing purrs for you and your family.
I’m so sorry your birthday started out so very wrong. I’m sorry your mom got all scratched up too, but I’m glad you felt better soon and that you found a mouse. Someone upstairs knew you needed something special after that seizure and fall.
Have a purrfect day, Sawyer. My best to your peeps. ♥
Oh Sawyer! We’re sorry to hear you had another seizure like that. Especially on your birthday. At least being able to play with a dead mouse helped to make your day a little better. We sure hope your mom is okay, too. Continued purrs for you….
(Sawyer, did your peeps ever start giving you CBD oil? We wonder if at this point, it’s worth a shot. We hear it can help with seizures, though not sure with the kind you have. But it sounds like they’ve tried everything else with you. The mom could try to give some suggestions if your peeps are interested, though she’s no CBD oil expert. Just a thought.)
Sawyer, my little furriend. I wish with all my heart that you could be well again. Sending loves to you. XXXX
Oh dear Sawyer, we are so very sorry you had that awful day, we sure love you and send gentle purrs to you.
We were so sad when we heard about your seizure and the fall but this is great! What a fabulous way for the day to end. A REAL LIVE mousie of your very own!!
The Florida Furkids with smoochies and love to Mau from Allie and paw pats and headbonks to Sawyer from Noelle
ps – from Noelle ….
Sawyer, that is totally pawsome! I’ve gotten a mousie and Mom took it away from me. You’re Mom is so much nicer than mine!! I am so glad you had a good end to your birthday!!
We are so sorry you had a seizure on your special day, but we are glad you found the mousie, and had a good play with him. Healing purrs.
Happy Birthday, Sawyer. You’ve been through so much and yet, you still fight to be with your parents and siblings. Mostly, I’m so glad you found parents that will fight for you too. It makes me sad to think of kitties with similar situations whose people can’t or won’t provide the best care.
Poor Sawyer, I am so sorry you had a bad start to your birthday. The mouse was definitely a nice surprise though. I am glad it stopped without needing to go to the vet. I am praying for you. XO
Sawyer when we heard about your seizure yesterday we were just focusing on being happy that it stopped on its’ own and that you weren’t badly injured in your fall. But it was just BAD that you had such a terrible seizure PERIOD. You know the whole kitty world and beyond is praying for you – always. We wish a miracle would happen and take the seizure problem AWAY – FAR FAR AWAY. Meanwhile we’re here for you always (and your family to!!).
Hugs, Teddy and Mom Pam
That is awesome, Sawyer, that you found a mousie! I think it is better to forget about the rest of the day.
Oh my, thank God you didn’t hurt yourself and came through it OK.
What a lovely way to end your birthday though with an extra special mousie gift. PLUS lots of lovely cards and no doubt lots of extra special gifts hugs and treats, too 😉
Have a wonderful Birthday from here on in.
OH Sawyer, I know your mum will not blame you so hang in there. There is sunshine. THAT MOUSEY! Totally pic dude * high paw * and those cards, you are making our dad jealous it’s his birthday today too!
Tell your mum to keep her chin up and her hopes. You are a brave and good boy and loved by us all. You can beat this, you have the world’s best Mom and Dad, the world’s best friends and a queue of people all lining up to give you a gentle hug.
You had a birthday, you got a mousey. You are doing OK.
