Old Kitties and New Houses

I have been awful about posting lately. There just never seems to be enough time to sit and do it. Rosie is my oldest cat. She is 19+ now and quite scrawny. She absolutely hates going to the vet and I have pretty much complied with her wishes by not taking her unless she is uncomfortable. She still gets around well, extremely sassy, and despite the picture you see below eats a lot. I'm guessing she weighs less than 6 lbs now. In the last few months she has become very clingy. She was never a lap cat and hated being picked up. But now she wants to be right on top of me all the time. I really don't have a problem with that until she snuggles a little too close to my face. Her breath could kill. Today I decided to take a look at her mouth and she was not happy and seems to be tender. I think we have tooth issues. Remember my house is currently loaded with furniture. Here she is trying to hide from me after I tried to look at her mouth. We have a vet appointment tomorrow. I hope she doesn't have a kitty heart attack when she finds out.

House update!
After emailing the construction manager about my concern over the lull in our house building, things have been moving along like "the extreme makeover". In the last week it has been bricked, sheetrocked, and textured.

Today I went out and they were framing the driveway and sidewalks. This made mom happy as it will be easier for her to get in and check out the progress. It's been difficult for her to get around after fracturing her leg. She's on the mend, getting around much better and ready to move in.

We've been told they will be putting the doors and cabinets in this week and painting the inside next week. Stay tuned for more pictures this weekend I hope!


  1. Can't wait to see more pictures!!!

    And I do feel sad for Rosie - bless her heart!

  2. Everything at your new house looks great! Love the brick!

  3. Your house is looking gorgeous, Kathy! I know you'll all be so happy when it's finally finished!

  4. Yay! Can't wait to see it. Tried to call Grandma and realized I have the wrong number in my cell phone!
