Food And Family Felines

I always prepare breakfast for myself and Joe. Today is Sunday and since I woke up early, too early in my opinion, I returned for a few more hours of blissful slumber. By the time the phone rang it was 11:15!

I decided to prepare vegetarian Morning Star burgers for our first meal, using generous slices of beefsteak tomato, honey-infused Thomas English Muffins, romaine lettuce, sautéed in butter mushrooms, topped with an Italian shredded-cheese blend. As soon as we sat down to eat we dove right in. Oops, I should have snapped the shots first.

Yesterday I received an updated photograph of my kitty nephew, Sunny.

See how he has grown from last summer to this.

We lost two more of our felines during the months of May and June. The emergency hospital staff sent us keepsakes of our girls, Ribbon and Tiffany.

At first I didn’t want them, but then agreed. Now I am glad to have the molds as these lovely kitties were with us for many years.

Ribbon Hall 1997 – 2013 and Tiffany Hall 1995 – 2013. We also lost Monseiur Hall 1997 – 2013, (Ribbon’s brother) in February. And, last summer my dear Bobby 1997-2013, (Ribbon & Monseiur’s half-brother and cousin).

They shared the same father, Bentley. Fiona was Bobby & Peter’s mother, and Chyna was mother to: Ribbon, Christy, Sasha and Monseiur. I know I’m rambling but I don’t give a fig.

  1. Yeah Virginia … I used to fuss at him so for getting right under my feet. I miss them all so very much. I have little holes in my heart for every pet and person I have loved and lost. Grieving hits at the most quiet moments. At least I have my photographs and memories to last me for the remainder of my time here. I have so many loved ones waiting for me over the rainbow bridge.

  2. Theresa, that MS burger looks so delicious. I just finished eating a sort of stir-fry with potatoes, onions, kale and pieces of chicken sausage. It was very tummy-satisfying.

    I’m sorry you’ve lost so many of your beautiful kitties. I’ll always remember my phone conversations with Ribbon. I never really knew what she was saying, but it made me so happy to hear her. I truly understand about the holes in your heart. ❤
