Catching Up

The girl's Mommy here.  I want to thank everybody who has stopped by during the special days for my girls!  I am so sorry that I missed two important days for them.

Monday the 17th was St. Patrick's Day but also was Lily's 3rd gotcha Day!  We love our Lily so much!

Yesterday, Wednesday the 19th, was Jan's day on the Cat Blogosphere Calendar!

Now for the reason I ended up missing such important things.  The girl's Daddy is from Ontario, Canada and that is where all of his family still is.  We got a call around Valentine's Day that his Father was in the hospital and not doing well.  We planned a two week trip up there.  

The girl's were well taken care of by their Grandma and Grandpa here in Utah.  They got visited and fed twice a day.  

While in Canada, we finally found out the girl's Canadian Papa had stomach cancer.  He passed away 6 days after we arrived.  We were able to be at the funeral and make sure we did everything we could do before we left.  We actually ended up staying a day later because of weather and had our flight time doubled because of the route we had to take home. 

The past week has been spent catching up on things at home.  Which of course meant extra snuggles with our girls.

The girls on the evening we got home.  They do not share a lap very often!

Again thanks so much for those who have thought about us and our girls!  We really appreciate it!


  1. They missed you!!!!!! Sorry for your loss, but glad you were able to be there.

  2. Happy Gotcha Day to Lily. Comforting purrz on your loss.

  3. Happy Gotcha day!! We missed our Doggies & had to make it up a week late. I felt SO bad! I didn't have a good reason like you. He didn't seem to care one bit & it doesn't look like your kitties care too much. Love the pics!

    I am so sorry to hear of your loss. It was a blessing that you were able to be there and have that time together and with the family. Purrs of healing and comfort for all who loved him.
