Melting Thursday

Hello!    We are MELTING………..well not “WE” but our area is getting some good sunshine and temps in the 40s so all of this snow is slowly but surely disappearing.  We still have over a foot of it on the lawn but the streets are looking good so there’s HOPE after all – at least for us.   Some places got a lot more of Jonas’s white stuff than we did so we hope they fare as well as we are………

SNOWBALLGOTCHA!

We hope maybe that’s our annual quota of snow so we won’t get any more……………fat chance right?

My parents were finally able to drive out of our neighborhood yesterday – which was a good thing because even though Mom had stocked up on EVERYTHING before the storm came, we were almost (gasp) out of Gerber’s Beef Baby Food which is what I take my pill with!

SAMGERBERYep – they don’t know it but I could be their new poster child.  It’s the only thing Mom has found that I will eat that icky pill in…………..and trust me – we tried EVERYTHING!

Now something serious for a minute………………one of my oldest and dearest and cutest friends, Alfie (also known as Gaylord) from Mollie and Alfie’s blog went to the Bridge a few days ago.   Their Mom has a wonderful online (Etsy) store with all kinds of wonderful handmade and FUN things for pets.   I have a lot of their stuff in my house – toys and placques – nip mats too – everything is wonderful (there’s a link to the store on my sidebar).   My heart was broken to learn that Alfie had gone but then I realized when I read their blog that Alfie the Angel only has ONE ANGEL WING right now because he has a mission to stay here and drive his sister Mollie crazy – which is how he will earn his SECOND Angel Wing.   I’m sure he can do this too as he and Mollie were FAST friends.    Please visit Alfie’s blog if you haven’t already…………and his store too – they have links on their blog to the store as well.   Alfie was a dear boy – he and Mollie were “the two Blondes” on the other side of the Pond…………Click on Alfie One Wing’s photo to visit:

I will miss you Alfie………..

Now – please resume your regular internet surfing because that’s it for my blog for today!  See you tomorrow peeps!

Love, Sammy

  1. I’m a fan of baby food too :o) I like alaska pollock with spinach :o) I was shocked to hear that Alfie had to go to the rainbow bridge…. there are no words, just tears for a friend and his furmily :o(

    • I was shocked too Easy – didn’t know about Alfie being sick, if in fact he was……hadn’t seen a blog from them in forever so just didn’t realize but he was such a CUTIE and certainly was able to control Mollie like nobody else could! I will miss him……..

    • Several other bloggers suggested we try pumpkin baby food – it’s good for the tummy when it’s upset (with babies) and apparently also works to help with stomach issues for pets (makes sense)……….so since Mom had heard about that, and I was being a pain in the butt about eating AYTHING after I got diagnosed with the thyroid thing, she tried Gerber’s Pumpkin Baby Food……….I loved it and WOULD eat my crushed up pill in it!!!!!!!!! Mom told my vet about it and he said it was a brilliant idea – now he tells some of his other pet parents to try it if their pets won’t take their medication.

    • I could never get her blog to come via email either and I would forget to check to see if there was a new post all the time…..then it just stopped……her business is super duper busy so I “got” that but didn’t realize that poor Alfie must have been sick. What a little character……glad he’ll be “around” to keep Mollie under control.

  2. My heart was/is broken too to hear about Alfie’z but Alfie One Wing is going to give us some time to adjust and he needs to “sort out” The Blond. Glad the snow is melting and that you were able to get out. Enjoy your Thursday, Sammy.

    • If anyone can handle Mollie, it’s Alfie. We continue to melt a bit today as it’s sunny but only 29 degrees……..next week we have some high 50s and low 60s coming though so BYE BYE SNOW!

  3. I am surprised you won’t eat your pill inside of bacon.I am glad your folks got out to restock the baby food. You look great on a baby food jar. So many cats use baby food, it would be wise of them to start a line just for cats. 🙂 XO

    • Mom tried bacon – raw was awful and I wouldn’t touch it, and cooked is delish but not with the icky tasting pill rubbed on it. Sigh. Alas. But the beef stuff I’m loving! Mom says first time she went through the grocery line with nine jars of Gerber the checker asked if it was for her grandchild (seeing Mom was an oldie!)…..Mom told her it was for ME and now the checker is always asking about how I’m doing AND has tried it with her 14 year old cat who is a picky eater. I should write to Gerber about it. HAHAHAHA

  4. We keep pumpkin baby food here in our pantry. Sometimes when us anipals get icky tummies, mom hand feeds it to us. Don’t tell mom but sometimes we want the added attention so we act like we don’t feel good – snorts. We were so upset to hear about sweet Alfie the other day. Our hearts break. Hogs and snout kisses cousin. XOXO – Bacon

    • Poor Alfie One Wing – has to stay here to torture Mollie before he can earn his second wing………well, if anyone can handle that job, it’s Alfie. What a cutie pie………… Mom started me out on pumpkin baby food back when I began taking my icky pills. It worked for a week or two then I wouldn’t eat it. So we’re slowly working our way through the complete line of Gerber baby food………….right now I’m a “BEEFAHOLIC” – love the beef with beef gravy stuff!

    • Thank your Mom for buying all that snow melt – that ought to do the trick and prevent any more snows! Kinda like bringing an umbrella on a rainy days stops the rain! Alfie is going to hang around and torture Mollie just as he did in life – no surprise there! 😉

  8. Phew on the baby food front!

    We too were very very sad to hear about Alfie but we suspect that he’ll earn his second wing in a flash considering how easy it’ll be to get to Mollie in his invisibility cloak.

  9. I’m so sorry about your friend Alfie. I read about him on Siddhartha’s blog and went over to his site. He’s got quite the sense of humor.

    I bet baby food is delicious! Maybe I can convince Mom that I need some. Hmmmm….how do I do that?

    • Gosh Noodle……convincing your parents that you need baby food is not easy – I had to wait until I had to take medication and I was being a pain about taking it before I got to try baby food. Now I’m almost GLAD I have to take pills twice a day! As for Alfie – we hadn’t heard from him (blog) in quite a while – his Mom has a SUPER busy handmade pet toys/products business and had been really busy through Christmas. Alfie and Mollie had a truly hilarious blog though and I think maybe they will continue even though Alfie’s an angel now.

    I was very sad when I heard about Alfie. It came completely out of the blue because no-one seemed to know that he had been ill.

    • I know – I was shocked myself…..I’m not sure THEY even knew what was going on – I think he had just not been eating well for a day or so and Miss Stella was going to take him to the vet just to be sure when he just went to the Bridge while he was asleep. Maybe it was the kindest thing….I bet his little heart just decided to take a rest. Bless him………..
