Weary Wednesday

Tutu : What's up with that ridiculous title? WEARY. I'm not weary
But honey, I am...
Tutu plays I spy with the chicken in the dehydrator
Tutu : Hee hee. Do you like my artwork? I made a smiley face!
This chiffon cake was wrapped in cling wrap which I had removed and thrown into the bin. I covered the cake with a cover, only to find it smiling at me 10 minutes later. Tutu had also dug out the cling wrap, ate half of it, which reappeared the next morning
Tutu : Uggghh! Why is this bin covered!
I had to change the bin to a covered bin to keep Tutu out (and safe)
Tutu : I'll figure it out...just you wait...
Ahh...what a nice happy Panda Bear with her cub. Notice anything wrong? No? 
See it now? Tutu loves to eat greens but you would think she'll know there's a difference between REAL greens and fake ones *rolls eyes*. And yeah, those chewed off greens reappeared the next morning as well
Remember Dishy? Tutu sure loved him to bits. Literally
Tutu : That's your explanation for the WEARY title? I still don't get it...
There's never a dull moment with Tutu around. If I don't see (or hear) Tutu after about 8 minutes, I can almost bet she's up to some kind of mischief...

Bernie Is Home

Last Monday morning, November 19, 2012, I gave Bernie his favorite veggies for breakfast which he was interested in, giving me hope. But watching him struggle to eat them made me realize it was indeed time. So I cuddled him and told him Daddy and I loved him dearly (Daddy was away on a business trip).

The vet was very busy that morning so we went to the back and cuddled. I had him in my arms as the vet helped Bernie hop off to the Rainbow Bridge, whole and well once again. His physical passing was very peaceful.

I brought him home and called the guy who does the cremations. He was cremated that very night and his ashes returned the next day.

Bernie is home
From L to R : Looppy, Manny, Mr Brown and Bernie (all bunnies)
When Looppy passed away in 2002, pet cremation was not yet available so her "urn" is filled with her fur  :)
We would like to thank all our furriends who left their comments on our previous post about Bernie. We appreciate your thoughts and prayers very much. We miss Bernie, especially when we see his favorite veggies and bananas...but we know he's now having a grand time at the Rainbow Bridge along with his pals. We love you, Bernie!

Time To Say Goodbye

Bernie joined our family on April 29, 2008 to be Mr Brown's new companion. Mr Brown was unconsolable after his companion, Manny passed away just a week before. He barely ate and would have died of a broken heart. He was overjoyed when he saw Bernie but Bernie was terrified and hid under the cage and Curly kept him company
The next day, Mr Brown convinced Bernie that he wasn't about to eat him and that he would take good care of him. And they ended up good friends. Sadly, Mr Brown passed away on November 20, 2011
Bernie : HEY! Why did you wake me up from my nap?
Bernie : OHHHHHHH. Banana! Me likey!
Bernie : I can smell you, Tutu!
Bernie : Pffffffttttt. You're NOT getting any of MY banana!
Tutu really eats bananas
Bernie : It's time for me to join my pal, Mr Brown. Until we all meet again on the Rainbow Bridge, enjoy a banana on my behalf!
Bernie has been through one health issue after another but he has never let it get him down. He lost his sight to cataracts at just 3 years young, then he had to have his left foot amputated on May 25, 2012. In October, he started dragging his remaining hind foot and chewed off his nails (just like with his amputated foot). About a week ago, I discovered a huge hard lump next to his right eye. But we kept going because he never stopped loving his food, even on the same night his foot was amputated. He's an amazing, brave boy!

Bernie, hubby and I had a little chat and Bernie told us that when he stopped eating, that would be the sign he was ready. Meanwhile, we were to spoil him rotten and give him his favorite bananas and veggies. He stopped eating his pellets on Saturday. Sunday afternoon I gave him a veggie leaf and he only managed a bite or two. His drooling had also increased. It was time.

Monday morning (we are around 12 hours ahead of most of our friends in America), I will bring him to the vet to help him cross the Rainbow Bridge...unless a miracle happens tonight and he starts eating again! Do keep him in your thoughts and prayers for a smooth transition.

Boomer Has Much To Celebrate

Not only is this award deliciously filled with nippy mice, it was also given to ME, Boomer, by my beautiful Sweetheart, Katie Isabella.

I am to tell you who gave me the award : Thank you, Darling Katie!

Boomer : I may have had a rough start in life, but I sure have loads to celebrate today!
And also tell everyone something I want to celebrate : There's so much but most of all, I want to celebrate having my very own family,  both humans and fursiblings AND the love of my life, Katie. Since being rescued from the streets, life has been nothing but one celebration after another. And for that, I will forever be grateful.

Now I'm supposed to pass this on to one to twelve furriends. I know a lot of our furriends have received this award so for those who haven't, please feel free to take it and tell us what you want to celebrate!

Cosmo's Hammick

Hi Everyone! It's me, Cosmo. I am rarely on the blog because I can't stand the flashy box but I just had to do this post. You see, I have observed how some of my furriends have this thing called a "hammick" that gets rave reviews. So I asked Mommy to show pictures of it to Grandpa and tell him how I would love to have one of my own.....

Cosmo : It's a little small for a big mancat like me, but it sure is comfy
See how I have to squish my body to fit?
Let me show you the length with my body. It measures from my shoulder to the tip of my paw and a little bit
*Grandpaws loves me
this I know
for he made me a comfy hammick!*
A BIG THANK YOU to Grandpa and Grandma for making this hammick just for me!
I love it!

Tutu Thursday

She used to have one white whisker and when it fell off, this white eyebrow emerged
Tutu : Will you please go away? I'm trying to sleep
Tutu : Eeeeep! Go away!
Ling : My goodness. Can you keep that snoring down a notch? Jeez
The monsoon season is here which means lots of rain, wind and cooler weather. Tutu can be found snoozing in this little "cave" very often but that doesn't mean she's any less rambunctious!

Dona Nobis Pacem

Dona Nobis Pacem (Grant Us Peace)

Picture of PEACE
Boomer and Coco are not best friends but they accept that they are who they are and respect each other's space. And so there is peace
This is our first time participating in the Blog Blast for Peace and Mommy has no idea how to decorate our globe with our beautiful selves. But since we wanted to participate, she decided to put up a picture of us instead. Hope that's okay!

Peace is not about loving everyone. It's not about making everyone have the same values and believes as ourselves. Peace is about accepting and respecting that other living beings have a right to live (humans and animals) and believe in what they want. If this can be achieved, then no one will want to hurt each other and then there will be world peace. Sounds so simple....yet so difficult.  :)

Tutu Thursday

Tutu : Time to play, Tees
Tutu : FELIX! Tees doesn't want to play with you
Tutu : Oh well. Never mind. We'll play together, Greens
*kick bite kick bite*
Felix : That looks like fun!
Felix : I think I'll join you
Tutu : NO YOU DON'T! Greens is MINE!
Felix : Not anymore! Heh heh heh
Tutu : Don't worry Greens. I've got my paws tightly around you now
Tutu : Ahhh Dishy Darling. I haven't forgotten you. Now's OUR special time
Tutu : * R O A R * I love my cloth mates!
* K I S S *
Tutu : Dishy Darling. You will always be my special first love
Mommy here :

We're sorry for having "disappeared" the last week or so. There was an accident last Friday involving Dino, our tortoise. She was rushed to our vet who was, thankfully able to fix her. She has to go back to the vet for antibiotic jabs every 2 days until the vet is convinced she has no risk of infection. She has been eating very well and doing really good. It will take months before her shell heals completely, but the important thing is that she'll make a full recovery (the accident missed her internal organs). Incidentally, it was also her 14th Gotcha Day last Friday so, HAPPY GOTCHA DAY, DINO! We're so thankful you're with us today.

We miss everyone very much so we're not going to waste any time. Get ready, for the Furries of Whisppy will be knocking at your blog doors very soon!
