I admit it - I used to not like kitties. I used to think kitties were evil, because they always make that super-scary hissing sound whenever I try to say hi. But I was wrong. I have recently made some kittie friends, and it turns out that some kitties are really nice.
Yesterday Mom got an awesome card from Arie, Bram, Cees, and Dirk, my kittie friends who live in the Netherlands, and their mom. (You may remember them from my FIRST EVER Silly Photo Contest.)
|Cees and Dirk|
Mom had just gotten home from her first full day back at work after breaking her wrist and having surgery, and she was tired and grumpy, and her wrist hurt. She noticed a bright yellow envelope when she got the mail out of the box, and she quickly opened it. (She's always excited to get non-junk mail.) She looked at the card and then she smiled a BIG smile. She was in a better mood the rest of the evening, thinking about the kindness of four kitties and a woman who live an ocean away.
I like it when my mommy smiles, and I think making people smile is a wonderful thing. Sending mom a card was such a nice and thoughtful thing to do.
And so I have reached the conclusion that maybe kitties aren't so bad after all, and Dutch kitties totally ROCK!
By the way, mom is doing great. She got her stitches out today and got a smaller splint/brace thingy, and she doesn't have to wear a cast at all! She will have to do physical therapy for a while, but she can do more and more with her hand each day. In a few weeks, she won't even have to wear the splint/brace thingy.
Her x-rays are quite impressive. She ended up with EIGHT screws because the bones were broken into so many little pieces. But she had an excellent surgeon, and she's gonna' be all better really soon.
She says to tell everyone she really appreciates all the get well wishes!
