Another Giveaway and Kitty Issues

Hi new followers from the beautiful Katie @ For Lauren and Lauren!!

If you guys have not been to Katie's (yes another Katie!! :) blog already you should! She's gorgeous, super thrifty and wise beyond her years. I adore her sweet style and inspirational outlook on life.

If that doesnt get you to check her out, this AWESOME giveaway she's having today should! It includes a $20 Kohl's card (via yours truly, you know I love me some Kohl's!), a $15 Target card, and personalized stationary to name a few -- and get this -- its WINNER TAKES ALL! Yes please!


So I know posting has been a little sparse this week, and here's part of the reason why.
If you are new to my little bloggy you may not yet know that I'm a crazy cat lady and I have two beautiful babes of my own. Lately Rosie has been in and out of the vet trying to get a UTI under control, and after my weekend in Seattle I noticed a complete change in her personality. She was hiding, not eating, vomiting and not wanting to be messed with. She is a SUPER cuddly kitty and she didn't want me to pet her or pick her up. I noticed she felt lighter when I tried. We spent some time at the vet and we can't figure out whats wrong with her. She was severely dehydrated and had lost about a pound in the last few weeks. The vet thinks she may have ingested something foreign that's obstructing her bowels, but nothing is showing up on x-rays. She finally ate a little last night and didn't vomit, but she still hasn't had any bowel movements. At this point they are thinking exploratory surgery may be the next step, and that breaks my heart. I dont want to put her through that needlessly, especially for the expense.

Todays plan of attack is to see if she passes any stool, and if not, its back to the vet we go.
I feel awful that she's clearly in pain and no one can figure out why. Please send her happy kitty thoughts and keep your fingers crossed that she goes potty soon!!

I hope you all have a blessed and beautiful day.
