Happy Halloween, everyone. There has been good news and bad news lately. Miss Peach is eating again, which is very good news. Mia ran off to the Rainbow Bridge a few hours ago, which is very bad news. Please go congratulate Miss Peach and give condolences to Mia's family.
Some of you are wondering about the Dutch cookies in LOKi's post. All I know about them is that they are called stroopwafels. The photo is of Sprankeltje, usually called Bean, sitting on the very edge of a chair back. She loves to do this, but then she starts to fall asleep. She gets more and more relaxed, her head sinks lower and lower on her chest, then she falls off the chair back. She never gets hurt doing this and she never seems to learn to get down before she falls asleep. Sprankeltje is Dutch for Little Sparkle, which suits her well. Her nickname is Bean, shortened from String Bean, because when she first came to live at her forever home she had very long legs and a small body. She has filled out quite a bit since then, but the name has stayed. Bean is a very thoughtful kitty. Whenever she has to throw up, she makes a certain meow to alert her Mom that she is about to hurl. Unfortunately, she also likes to find a hidey spot before she throws up, so her Mom doesn't always find her in time.
Bean alerts Mom when she's about to hurl,
Because she is such a thoughtful girl.
Mom rushes to fetch
Something to catch
Whatever it is Bean is going to hurl.
