Weekend Wrap Up

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!

I hope the inhaler works out for Isabella. My human was supposed to use one on Sparkle, but she was never fully convinced she had asthma. Your human's new bracelets are AWESOME, BTW!

Ditto on those bracelets, the one in the photo is stunning!

We're thrilled that Isabella isn't having any problems accepting the inhaler. Could you do it yourself, without an extra set of hands, do you think? Meaning, is it feasible for one person to be able to do this?

Super news!

I just love those new bracelets and I'm obviously not the only one if you sold all 5 already.
Glad to hear the inhaler is working and it's getting easier to use

Sweet Isabella...sounds as if you are being so tolerant and cooperative. We know a couple tortie girls at our house who would be kicking and screaming. We really do pray that this helps you. Purrlease tell your mommy that we would really like to get one of those bracelets for our mom for Christmas. It is catabulous! Your mommy is so talented. Love to all.

I'm so happy Isabella is doing better. Kitties are smart and she'll figure out what you are doing is making her feel better. Yes indeed.

We had no idea Isabella was having so many attacks. We hope this inhaler IS working so she doesn't have to endure those attacks any more.

Those memory bracelets are just lovely.

I am soooooooo glad that the treatments are working for Isabella. I bet she will be feeling better really soon and she will get used to the inhaler. Take care.

It sounds like it is working. I sure hope so! I'm sure it is stressful for everyone involved. :(

You both look so purity and so does that bracelet! Isabella, best of luck with that inhaler, girl.

poor isabella. hope she is attackless soon. sending soft mews and loud purrs her way.

Mommy is covetous of a bracelet!

Daddy has a steroid nasal spray for his sinuses and they take a few days to kick in. We have our paws crossed that Isabella will have fewer and fewer attacks as time goes by!
