KC 6, Jan 106, RIP Mondo

We got this lovely card from Zoolatry today.  Well, we didn't, Jan did, but anything she has automatically belongs to us too, so we did get this lovely card too.   The Florida Furkids said they hope we're doing something special for Jan today.  We are.  We're letting her go to the shelter to take pictures of other dogs and cats.  Since she won't be available to wait on us (as if!) we figure such a sacrifice on our part qualifies as a gift. 

And this lovely card from Gracie. She calls Jan her technical support. Little does she know Jan knows less than we do about Blogger. 

And we were very surprised to find a couple of graphics on the Cat Blogosphere today.
 Ann of Zoolatry has turned our header into a birthday card and she's added a heart to Cotton's picture.

KC and Mom ML added a background and hearts to turn our graphic into "Remembering Cotton."  How sweet. 

Thank you, Ann and ML - and any of you who left a comment or posted on your blog or on FB. Jan will be around to thank you in a day or two since shelter picture day is long and super tiring.  Your thoughtfulness is appreciated, even if you did make Jan teary.  (How is she going to see to feed us if she's springing leaks?)

KC turns 6 today so be sure to stop by the Giggleman Gang's blog to help her celebrate.  Mom ML is leaving or has already left on an emergency trip to see her Aunt Dorothy who fell and broke her arm, so please keep her in your prayers for a safe journey. 

There is a note of sadness today.   Mondo of River the Beagle's blog suddenly became so ill he had to be helped to the Rainbow Bridge yesterday..  We send hugs, purrs and pawhugs to Steph and Mondo's family.

Jan was trying to sneak through today without any fuss, so we got caught without even a card for her.  But we do wish her a Happy Birthday, especially if there is food involved.  Maybe we can fix her a tuna and nip cake or two while she's at the shelter.  But it's past our breakfast time and we dogs still haven't walked her yet, so we'll wish you all a good day.

    ....Maybe Jan 106 is like a computer program. You know, Jan 10.6. If that's the case you should be able to get an upgrade to a newer application. Kind of like turning back the clock, huh!
