Thanks, Halo! I cannot even begin to imagine life without LPs and you guys here on the forum. It'd be a return to the Dark Ages, for sure.

 

And when did you get that big fancy red ADMINISTRATORS title under your avi, Halo!! Congrats!! Or has it always been there and I'm blind as a bat?

Rose you were one of the first to really help me! And I will always covet those precious white 'earmuffs' in your pic... What were their names? (Of course they couldn't hear them tho! )

Aww thanks Lovestruck. They really stole our hearts alright. We learned to communicate with them by vibration. Tapping or stomping the floor to get their attention, or holding them against your throat while you spoke soothingly. Eye contact worked too. Their story was an interesting one. We adopted their pure white 6 month old mom, Jasmine, from a shelter who assured us she had been through a complete checkup. We brought her home to our two others and they got along well after only a few days. She was very, very sweet, but something just seemed off. The shelter we got her from also gave free first visit exams with certain vets and we made her appt. In the vBulletin interim, I started to notice behavior. Shewould get up and scope out different areas, etc. My partner was more of a dog person back then so he didn't notice, but I told him, "If I didn't know better, I would swear she was pregnant." By the time 2 weeks passed and it was time for her vet visit, we were pretty sure and he confirmed my suspicions. He told us her due date was likely only a couple of weeks and it would not be safe to abort. I couldn't have at that point anyway. So we got home, I called the shelter, told them the diagnosis we were dealing with in spite of their "thorough" exam. They told us we could bring her in and trade her for another cat!!! I was apalled!They also told us that they could abort the kittens.I informed them that the vet had told us that it would be life threatening to her and the kittens to which they replied, "Ohhhh...it is safe,maybe just a bit bloodier, but she'll be fine." OMG! I told them forget it, that we would see her andnher kittens through it and we would find the kittens homes. Jasmine's water broke on New Years Day and she was so young and unknowing, she squatted in the litter box thinking she had to go. I set up a box with a towel and carried her to it. She kept wanting to run until I saw her finally lay down. I told my partner, "this is it." He said, OMG, I am going out for a beer." "Like hell you are," I said. And then, the first one began to come. All was well until the second one came, and she was so fixated on washing the first baby, that she would not nip open the sac of the second. I told my partner to get me a clean, damp wash cloth and I gently broke it myself near thekittens nose and mouth. The next one came fine. Three white with shorthair. The last one told us what dad looked like. Very handsome and fluffy gray with a white locket on his chest. 4 kittens in all born to our 6 month old girl. one fluffy gray male, one white male and one white female with odd colored eyes. We took care of them as if they were our own babies

and fell in love with all of them, but were in no position to keep them. Each one got a good home through friends. Jasmine was very relieved to be free of the little darlings. As for names, I can only tell you that one was named Snowball (I kn o w) the gray one was named Stealth. And yes, I discovered that the white ones were deaf. BUT... it was a happy ending. :) The End. The happy end.

Thank u Rose for sharing that - what an incredible story! Do you still have Jasmine or is this a "kitty lifetime" ago?

Aww... I am happy you liked it Nutrix. And Lovestruck, we had Jasmine for over 7 years when she developed a sort of sudden onset diabetes and we had to let our sweet girl go. But you will be happy to know that she had a wonderful, spoiled rotten life while she was here. We gave her a good life and in turn she gave us a sweeter life for sharing it with us, as I believe they all do. :)

It's a real privilege to have them share their lives with us -- a hard one sometimes, but a privilege nonetheless. Thanks for telling Jasmine's story.

I agree Donsie. So very much. The pain of losing them is unbearable to me, but the love they give and all the joy that they bring to our lives is all worth it to me. And you are welcome. I am happy to recall the memory of Jasmine and her kittens.

Oh but you ARE the lady of the manor Mel! Forgive me for being late to the party, but do you have a new baby?! I only see snippets of things in posts & I'm trying to figure out the rest of the story. Although a new baby can keep you from feeling anything but exhausted, and a mere shadow of your former self, thankfully no matter how rough things are (we) moms eventually find grace in just being the center of that little ones universe. So, if you are, can you catch me up on all the details?

 

Forget that... I just read a post that sounds like you are in the exhaustion throngs of new motherhood. Don't waste any precious energy on getting me up to speed... there'll be time for that later. Take care.

TY quietguy. I just read through them... very cool how the whole LPMP family went through this (symbolically only, of course). Thank you for sharing.

 

Cinnamonmel you are quite amazing to say the least... what you did to get Rio here and now what you're enduring. But (amazing being the operative word here)... I have no doubt you will get through this better than a lot of us would (myself included!) Neither of my boys slept thru the night til after 20 months! It was extremely hard but I had help too! Beautiful baby and I'm very glad I came "late" to the party rather than to miss it all! Do hang in there - it always gets better.

 

Oh, just realized, here I go OFF topic again... sorry PM, Luna & Halo ;) I'm still learnin.

 

ON topic... TY everyone for acknowledging my little promotion to DHE. Blessed to be here.
