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.

Silver Lining

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!

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.

Valentine July 2, 2019 at 5:18 pm

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 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.

Sandee July 2, 2019 at 9:43 am

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.)

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

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.
