Mommy started feeling icky last night so decided we're not working on tax returns today and she missed her first exercise class in 3.5 weeks.  Instead, we're on duty to nurse her back to health!  I'm tap, tap, tapping on her forehead every half hour to make sure she doesn't have a fever.  In between this health check, I'm keeping a close eye on her...
Isabella is working hard as the holder downer...
It's a tough job being a nurse but somekitty's got to do it!

We'll post and comment when we're able to.

Hope you're feeling well today!

PeeS:  Last night, Isabella had her first big asthma attack since last Friday night after starting the inhaler.  Mommy was pretty out of it due to her cold meds but it was bad enough to wake her up.  We're hoping they don't start up again since she has had a few smaller attacks too. She is much more alert and is even awake more often than she has been so we can tell she's feeling better.

If I don't move, maybe no one will notice me...
On second thought, of course everyone notices me.  I'm a Tortie!

Hope you have a purrfect Tortie Tuesday!

Phew!  What a weekend!  It started off cold and rainy but turned warm and sunny so of course we enjoyed the sunpuddles...
But, it wasn't all relaxing.  Mommy got motivated to finally make new jewelry in order to prepare for a craft show so we helped her make a pair of earrings and five memory bracelets.  Can you tell we inspired her?
All five bracelets sold already so thank Cod the craft show isn't until December!  We'll be helping her make more so keep an eye out for them!

As for how my sisfur Isabella is doing, well, she was actually awake more this weekend but I'll let Mommy fill you in on her...
Mommy here:  We started Isabella on her inhaler Friday evening since her asthma attacks happen mainly at night.  Her daddy held her while I tried to figure out the AeroKat.  I had washed it and the little flap that shows her breaths wasn't quite dry so she was patient while I got it dry enough to work.  When the puff happened on the inhaler she jerked her head back and her nose came out of the cup at the end of the AeroKat but it was put back on quickly.  She took 10 breaths of the inhaler, however, that night she had three attacks and one was a lot worse than usual.  Saturday evening's dose went better and we were prepared for her jerking her head back so it never came off her nose.  She again got 10 breaths and although she seemed more active afterward, she had two short attacks within an hour.  Unless she actually got off the bed, we didn't hear any attacks at all Saturday night and none all day yesterday.  We're hoping this is a sign it's working and the attacks will be gone soon.  We're very thankful she's so mellow and we're hoping she continues to cooperate.  We thank everyone for the purrs!  They are working!

Hope you have a uneventful, lazy Monday!
