Pink Saturday

Happy Pink Saturday,

Exuse No. 2 and 3

Well I have been waiting for some pictures before I posted the other 2 reasons why I hadn't blogged in a while, but I guess i'm going to be waiting a little longer. I was doing some sewing for people which kept me really busy after work and the weekend. First off I made a prom dress for one of my son's friends, It kind of kicked my butt cause I hadn't made anything that ambitious in a quite a few years. I turned out really nice though and she really liked it. When (and if) they send me the pictures I will post them. The other thing I was sewing was a jersey for a friends daughter. She is a dancer for the Denver Nuggets Basketball team and since they are in the playoffs the girls had to get a team jersey and remake it to wear to the games. That job was a pretty easy one at least, but I don't have any pictures of it either. So in stead I will post a picture of the other office cat.

Sleeping on the job again...... Must be nice.

In other news, Buster the Kitty is doing well. He had his two week checkup yesterday. They removed the staples and gave him another antibiotic shot. The hardware remains intact for now.

See you tomorrow for Pink Saturday

Excuse Number 1....

First in a series of why I didn't Blog for a few weeks.

No.1 Kitty Crisis
This Buster,(Isn't he cute) he is our new Kitty we keep at the office at work. We have a lot of mice around here so cats are great to have around. He's a sweet , loving thing. We keep him inside since we have a lot of traffic and heavy equipment moving around outside. Well one day he got out and we couldn't find him. Later he came back dragging his rear leg, not crying or anything, but I knew something wasn't right. So next came a trip to the vet. Diagnosis-broken leg, and not just a little break but in half. Here is the X-ray.

I have no idea how he could have broken it like this. The vet said it looks like something heavy might have fallen on him. There was no outside injury so she didn't think he got run over. So anyway, it was Tuesday and the vet wouldn't be able to fix him until Thursday, then the next day the Vet's called and said that he canceled all his appointments for the week and I would have to find somewhere else to have the leg fixed. GREAT! So I spent a good part of the day calling around trying to find somewhere to take him. Let me tell you these Orthopedic Surgeons for animals is expensive. I was looking at $2000.oo to $3500.oo . Holy crap, I can't afford that. Finally I remembered a place where they do low cost spay and neuter and vaccines.They had me bring over the X-ray and called me later that evening. Yes they could fix Buster's leg, and Neuter him AND give him his shots... All for 400.00 to 500.00. Can you believe the difference? Now that was something we could work with. So I took him in Thursday morning and picked him up Friday afternoon all fixed and fixed.

So now he has this lovely hardware holding the bone together. There are actual metal pins in his leg and the opening is stapled closed underneath them. Looks like something from a sci-fi movie. We are supposed to keep him from jumping and running around, not easy to do with a kitten who wants to play all the time. But he's a trooper, he acts like there is nothing wrong and doesn't even mess with the hardware.
We'll see how it's going at his first check up the end of this week.

I'll keep you posted.

Have a good one and watch your Kitties!

Pink Decorating Saturday

This weeks Pink Saturday is all about decorating with this lovely color.

You can always just start with paint and go from there. Or that may be all you need.

Like the walls in this simple, yet elegant bathroom.

Or go bold with all-over color

Perhaps you are a closet pink lover, afraid to come out.

Or OK for the whole world to see.

Maybe a room with just a touch

Possibly there is just never enough!
