So, tomorrow I’m going to have surgery. I’ll be back when I’m back – I don’t imagine it’ll be much longer than a week. Even if I don’t have any fosters other than Corbie, I’m sure I’ll have plenty of pictures to share!

She only really counts as half a cat right? Since she is so tiny:) One of my 3 is a teeny cat too, about 5 pounds and 6 yrs old, and she rules the roost here.


Alice is a fractional cat, so if you round down….

Alice is a fractional cat, and Coltrane’s only here a fractional amount of time – between the two of them, they make one cat. Which means we really only have 12 permanent residents? No? πŸ™‚

Seriously, with Reacher and Rhyme gone, it’s ridiculously quiet around here. It’s been almost a year since Fred brought home the Bookworms (mid-March is when that happened), and so for the better part of the year, we’ve had at least the four Bookworms plus whatever other fosters we had. At the moment, we’re at the lowest number of cats in residence in almost a year.

And it’s QUIET.

Is there a way to get back to the home page from the other pages? Like if I’m browsing the fosters and want to come back to the home page and daily posts?

I just added this feature when I saw your comment – click on the header picture at the top of the page, and it’ll bring you back to the main page.

Kara would like me to know that she’s got her eye on that smug little princess brat.

  1. All good wishes to you. Like so many, I’ve become addicted to your posts and will miss them!

  2. I don’t know what I’ll do without my daily dose of L & H. Wishing you a trouble-free procedure and a speedy recovery.

  3. Congrats on the weight loss and good luck with today’s surgery! You’ll look like a twenty-year old again! (just don’t start acting like one, O.K.?)

    I am sure the kitties will help with your recovery, let’s just hope none of them walk over your sore parts unexpectedly, that would hurt!

  4. Best wishes for the surgery and recovery and I’m sure you’ll have plenty of cuddly comforters with you!
    And I’ll miss my daily Love-and-Hisses doses, but we all want you to be all better, too.
    Take care.

  5. Best of luck with your surgery. And good for you losing all the weight! My daughter is traveling the same path and the transformation is amazing. See you soon!

  6. Get well, I had a similar problem when one side had to be reduced to match the other side after surgery. Husband had to have cats in his office because I could not have any cats in the bedroom or in my office either. But its OK to pet them, just not lay around and let them sleep all over you (for a few days anyway).


  7. Congratulations on both the weight loss and the sprucing up! I will visit the Flickr stream to fill the void of no new posts for awhile.

    Cheers for an uneventful and quick recovery!

  8. Best wishes. The cats will already have worked out a rota for “mom-sitting” – sitting near you if you can’t bear to have them on you. Cat – the best healer known to humankind.

  9. Robyn!! Good luck with your surgery!! Take care please and rest as long as you need too and then some!!! See you and all your adorable kitties soon! take care

  10. Best wishes with your recovery – I find that cats help speed the process πŸ™‚
    Will miss your posts – I so look forward to them every day for the (in)sanity break they provide. You’ll be in my thoughts. Hugs!

  11. Catless long-time lurker here.
    Your blog/wit/photos/untiring love of kitties makes me very happy and fills the cat-shaped hole in my life.
    However, please take all the time you need to fully mend.
    I look forward to your return.

  12. Good luck, Robyn! Hope you heal quickly.

    Kitties- Be very gentle about bread-making and headbutting and don’t haz too many complaints if Robyn doesn’t feel much like reaching down to scratch heads & bellies.

  13. Good luck with your surgery and I hope you have a speedy and as painless recovery as you can. And congrats on the weight loss, even if it was years ago. I work for eDiets.com in my “real life,” so I can surely appreciate how difficult that can be.

    You’ll be ready for kittens in no time! πŸ™‚

  14. Robyn, the better you take care of yourself, the sooner you will fully recover, and the sooner you fully recover, the sooner you get more kittens… so take care of yourself! Hope all goes swimmingly and look forward to having you back posting again.

  15. Dear Robyn,
    you just take it easy and heal right up. We look forward to more kitten tales and photos when you are able. You used to be a big girl? Nooo!!!
    You know, there’d be no break in communications if you’d trained at least half those permanent residents in how to post updates…are they at least taking photos while you mend?

  16. I hope the surgery went well and you are well on your way to recovering and feeling better!

    Thank you for your wonderful blog and all that you do for the kitties in your life.

  17. Robyn, I haven’t been here in ages so I hadn’t seen this header – be honest now: Did you use photoshop to herp-derperize the two bebehs on the lower right? If not (or even if so), I must encourage you to caption them and submit them to http://derp.memebase.com/ (I am wondering if there’s a way to make “purr” work with “hurr durr”), then watch as they take over the internet.

    xoxo get well soon
