    Dear friends,

    It’s been awhile since posting and in recent months some periods of touch-and-go with Civie Azalea’s health. She is one determined girl and today is the day we celebrate her 20th birthday. We go day-by-day and with the flow of whatever helps her to do and be whatever is in her heart to be.

    Without your help and support throughout her eye and dental surgeries, and assorted ups and downs and ups again, we might not be honoring her in this way today. Thank you all including but certainly not limited to @Gill & George, @Jill & Alex (GA) @Tricia Cinco(GA) & Harvey @Carol & Murphy @Bobbie And Bubba and @Gussie's mom and so many others. Thank you.

    She started off this morning in gusto with what has become her favorite appetizer: liver shake! Thank you @Ella & Rusty & Stu(GA) and @Bobbie And Bubba for suggesting it and to fdmb for it being an available resource recipe on fdmb.

    The clowder, Bella, Dancer and Spunky are doing well. Steve accidentally clipped off the top of a toe with nail clippers recently. It’s healing well but it was like pulling teeth to get him to ER. I’m bringing him to a podiatrist tomorrow for a proper nail clipping, and when the wound is fully healed, SS and I will be bringing him to have pedicures regularly from now on! I might even join in and have one, too!

    I was laid up for awhile with flu and then a bout of diverticulitis that brought me to ER about a week after Steve’s “visit” with them. On the mend and we’re all looking forward to Springtime.

    Sending heaps of vines and prayers to all in need including @LizzieInTexas Gizmo and @Ella & Rusty & Stu(GA) Rusty feel better vines.

    With love and thanks from us all in Sootie-land,
    ❤️❤️❤️

    Here are a couple of photos of the birthday girl: first one, settled in Steve’s lap comforting him and exuding healing and sympathy vines for her BFF on the day of his toe injury; the second photo: liver shake still a thumbs up! She’s looking a little scruffy bc her fur is growing back in and while she has regained some weight and is regaining muscle tone, she’s still on the tiny cat thin side.

    Thank you Carla. I truly admire you, your kindness for all and for your patience, loving care and perseverance for Furball. He will find his way into greens and blues and OTJ again. You are a wonderful mama bean and he is one lucky fellow to have you in his life.
    Hope you continue to feel better, too. It’s been a long winter haul for you, too.

    Hello, Amy and thank you for all throughout these fdmb journeys both for our beloved ga Sootie and her tribe. How are you? Are you in the path of the next east coast storm (there’ve been so many so far this year, I don’t recall which letter of the alphabet we’re on!).
    Stay well, warm and dry and with hugs and scritches from us all,

    Hello, M and Ty. Nice to meet you and thank you for stopping by with birthday wishes and wisdom for Azalea, especially on this day when, after some days in the hospital, Ty is back home with you and I hope will be feeling better with each day. With vines and scritches from our tribe to you and yours,
    Sina

    Hello, Ty! I hope you’ll be feeling better soon. As one senior kitty who’s been through some vicissitudes, too, I’m sending you all my anti-vicissitude and super healing vines for you and your bean, who btw, is one special bean for sure! I won’t tell you my birthday wish cuz that would spoil it, but let’s just say it’s on its way speedy like across the oceans to you and your bean. And if you catch a whiff of feel better catnip, that’s part of it!
    Yours in double-decade-itude,
    Azalea

    Hi Michelle and Beenie,
    Thanks for stopping by and nice to meet you. Azalea sez (and I concur) what a wonderful gathering of multi generationals and seniors on this day.
    I hope you both are well and gettingbthrough the winter ok. Spring is just around the corner (or maybe after the next blizzard or two ;)).
    With thanks, hugs and plenty of scritches to go around,
    Sina and Azalea and Sootie’s Tribe

    Thank you, Lucy and Squallie. How are you and Squallie? Yes, fine wine an apt analogy, much easier to “swallow” than other analogies to some of the vicissitudes of aging that I feel myself subject to more and more each day.
    Hugs and of course extra scritches for your steadfast Squallie, too.
    ❤️❤️

    We are all well, thank you for asking. :) Lol, I wish I could say I felt like fine wine, but I think I'm really more like old plonk turning to vinegar! :rolleyes: :p

    I love seeing pictures of sweet Azalea!❤️:bighug:
