My sweet kitty!

I didn't really post anything while I was gone to Boston!  I DID stitch two small Christmas pieces that I will try to make into ornaments very soon!

My life has been very hectic the past few weeks because my sweet, sweet kitty was very sick!  I just didn't want to talk about it, but it seems that she is doing GREAT now and I think it's safe to say she will be ok!

This is Violetta--my petite little black rescue cat.  She is the sweetest and most loving cat I've ever had. She constantly sits in my lap and holds my arm and nuzzles!  My husband laughs and knows that she is really attached to me! (and I'm really attached to her!)

She got very sick and quit eating, quite literally, and almost starved to death.  It was so unpleasant, but my vet is wonderful and we got her on a drip and eating again!  She doesn't appear to have any permanent damage, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed!  She lost too much weight, but is enjoying eating her new food now and the weight is coming back.  The photo shows her modeling her cone, which I don't think she was too fond of! But it was because of her drip, and the cones are soft now and better than the hard ones.
She is home now and doing really well!  I boarded her at the vet while we were gone--that was the only way I could leave her and they took wonderful care of her!  She likes them and doesn't seem to mind going there.  We have one more trip that's been planned for months, and she'll be visiting with them again!  Then we'll be home for a good while!

Thank you for listening to my cat story.  I'll have some stitching to show soon.  Please come back and visit again!

So glad your sweet kitty is on the mend, Frances! I have a soft spot for all-black cats as we also had a black rescue cat (although he was a huge, male!) for 14 years. Black cats are the best! I'm sure she'll be back to normal very soon with your tender loving care :)

I do feel sorry for any animal that has to have that collar on. Glad to hear your puss-cat is on the mend.

So glad your kitty is on the mend - I hate it when our fur babies are sick. I feel so helpless….
