Factual Friday

This is Rusty. Just dropped by to let you know we have dubbed today Factual Friday. and the fact is we're taking the day off. We are several posts behind but Jan has a gigantic head and we can't ...

Cotton: Psst, Rusty, Jan does not have a gigantic head. She has a gigantic headache!

Rusty:  Oh, sorry.  Jan has a gigantic headache and she's determined to share it with all of us. We can't think when her brain is creaking and groaning.  By tomorrow her headache should be better.  If not, we'll have to lock her out back in the Romper Room while we try to catch 40 winks or write a post, depending on whether we manage to get any rest tonight.

Oh, I almost forgot. Jan posted some new collector plates and a couple of music boxes last night. You can check them out at Jan's Funny Farm Fair.


This is so frightening to us we almost can't post it. But Maxie is in serious trouble. All because he had his teeth cleaned. His esophagus was badly burned -- yeah, we're wondering how this happened too! -- and his mom has wracked up a huge vet bill -- with a different vet -- trying to save him.

Maxie is having surgery today.  Nothing has helped him and this is his last chance at survival.  Still, the vet might not be able to save him. He might have to be euthanized while under the anesthesia. Mom Laura and her twins are very attached to Maxie and are hoping for a miracle.  Please stop by his blog and support his worried family. We hate the thought he might not make it.  Who would have thought getting his teeth cleaned could bring about this horror.  Click to visit his blog.Lilly Lu, Iris and Maxie Tell All.

Have a purring and tail wagging day.

  3. That is so sad and I feel angry about it although I don't even "know" Maxie; it sounds like a very incompetent vet and I hope Laura spreads the word about him...Purring loudly for Maxie to survive...Hope your head feels better soon, Jan...kisses to your sweet babies...xo...Calle, Halle, Sukki

  20. What an awful story, and that pet insurance company should be ashamed. They're as bad as a human insurance company.
