Warm & Wonderful Wednesday

Rocky here, but shhhh. It's very cold here today, so my mom set up a special place for our geriatricat Callie and we don't want to wake her while she warms her achy old bones ....

But I want to quietly thank all my blogging friends for giving us such a happy day yesterday on my sisterbean Tiffany's birthday and making my family feel as warm inside as Callie. Even though my mom lives in the US and Tiffany lives in Italy, your love brought them together! You gave Tiffany such a wonderful surprise when she was showered with birthday greetings from all over the world ... more birthday wishes than she's ever received on any birthday of her life!

I was eavesdropping when my mom called Tiffany last night at the exact moment she was born, 7:34 pm (1:34 am Rome time!) and all they could talk about was YOU, my wonderful friends!

I worried that it would be a sad day, and there would be flood disasters with my mom's eyes leaking all over the US and Tiffany's leaking all over Rome. Oh, they leaked all right, but it was happy leaks, not sad ones! My mom says she used to feel lonely because Tiffany is so far away and because she's lost so many loved ones in the last few years ... but now that she's been blessed with all of you, our wonderful kitty-loving blogging family, she'll never be lonely again!

Thank you so very, very much!

I never thought of using a heat lamp when the sun was not shining. That is a great idea!

I am glad that your humans had such a good birthday. We found that we must have typed (I mean my human) the address wrong because it bounced back today and we felt badly! Still, wwe no longer feel bad if she had such a good day! YEAH!

Oh, Rocky, this is such a nice post. We are so glad that the very little effort on our part made your mom and sister bean happy. It is such a nice touch to call at the time of her birth. SS says her mother wouldn't even remember her birthday unless SS writes it on her calendar!

Opus and Roscoe live in Italy and their mom is American too. Does your sisterbean live anywhere close by?

Charlotte said...

So glad that Tiffany had a happy birthday and your mom wasn't too upset. It was my pleasure to send my purrs to her. My SMS's sister lives in New York and they miss each other terribly on special days.

Marilyn MonREOW said...

How precious! Your post made me grin from fuzzy ear to fuzzy ear. What a dear and special relationship your Mombean has with your sisbean, and I'm so glad your sisbean had a happy birthday!

Joyful purrs and snuggles from Marilyn!

We're so glad that your Mom and Tiffany had a nice time - it was pretty amazing for your Mom to ring Tiffany at the exact time of her birth.

Purrs to all of your family,
