Gracie Lou and Charlie Too!

Today is Thursday for those of you who may live in a cave or for those of you who may only raise your heads daily to take in my fabulous blog, and that means today is special.  Nope, no shortage of ego here.  Mainly because it is Thursday, which means I do not require myself to really produce awesome product on Thursdays.  Why?  Boy am I glad you asked that.  

As you know, or maybe you didn't.  My buddy Karla Nellenback, AKA the Grammar Nazi, and I have been working on a Round Robin writing project that has really taken off.  Here we are now into our eighth week and it is get-ting good.  Trust me.

I do my postings on Tuesdays and she does hers on Thursdays.  So after you take a peep at the video below which I can honestly say I did everything but act in, head over to her blog to catch up on everything Grace and Harper. 

Today, er, I mean yesterday as I am writing this today, er, last night, are you confused?  Me too.  Anyway, on Wednesday I had to take the baby in to the vet for his de-claw.  That would be Charlie.  Now this may get some of your danders up, especially if you feel it is inhumane to do that to a poor defenseless kitty.  My furniture would disagree, but that is not the reason we have our pets neutered and de-clawed.  We do it because all of our pets are indoor animals and quite honestly I break out if they scratch me.  With one I could probably handle it, but we have four.  You see the problem right?

So I was feeling a little sentimental when I got home last night because he has to stay at the animal hospital until Friday morning.  I miss him.  And he was always happiest to see me when I come home.  I miss seeing him lay on my desk as I type up this post too.  So in honor of the baby, AKA Charlie I edited this little video that I shot last month of him and Gracie Lou.  Gracie gets top billing b/c I was fair and did it in the order of appearance.  Plus she is missing her bud. 

I know...they really are cute.  Pets make you smile, I don't care who you are.

Hey Kelly,
Sorry I've been MIA but I lost my internet for a day or so and besides that I just haven't gotten much free time to comment.
I loved the video. Cute!
Thanks for sharing:)

Adorable! And I wish Charlie a speedy recovery. We had our Bailey declawed after trying to break him of scratching for two years. (Furniture, people) When he caught oldest girl right by the eye when she was 10, the decision was made.

Our cats, including our new guy Moe, are indoor pets and I never let Bailey outside even when he had claws.

Thanks for sharing with us.

Awwww. So cute! I'm sure Charlie will be better in no time. I'm not a huge fan of declawing, but sometimes it's necessary if you want to keep a cat in a loving home. :)
