Cat Adoption Update

Sunday, July 20, 2014

Yesterday I blogged about our new cat.

Thank you , my SPfriends for your input and prayers.

Today, she actually came out of hiding, sat on me (ugh) and purred for a bit. :-)

Weighs in at 11 .2 pounds!

Changed her name from Lilly to.... Jenny Lillyanna Hidee Patience Meow.

AKA: Jenny-girl, Jenny-cat, Cat

    Glad Jenny came out of hiding! She will settle in more over time.

    Be glad it is not my cat Stratus that sat on you. He is about 20 lb.

I gone and done it!

Saturday, July 19, 2014

Remember, after Nicky passed onto Cat Heaven in December, I decided that Jasmine cat was plenty? I quickly discovered with delight that taking care of one cat was much easier.

On and off through out this time, I would look at the free cats and dogs on CL. Just for fun.

Well.... this last listing was of a cat named Lilly. Didn't think much of it. But when an hour later, I couldn't get her out of my mind, I decided to find out more info on her.

But this time DH came home. After a flurry of activity, he sat down in front of the computer showing Lilly. I was finally able to ask him his opinion. He shrugged.

So I replied to the Listing. We discussed it a bit more. Pros and cons. I prayed about it. Received God's assurance. Then the foster mom called. Lilly met most of my criteria. I told her I'd call her back after discussing it with DH.

DH shrugged again but came up with a solution to a few hurdles.

I took that as a Yes! Called foster mom. Ended up she, her son and Lilly drove up that night arriving around 9:30 p.m.

3-yr old Lilly has lived a difficult life. She is a scardy-cat (with good reason) and is overweight (people before foster mom didn't feed her much), so now Lilly is making up for it. She has green eyes, a nice meow and is currently hiding under the bed. (I made sure there was room for her before she arrived, knowing this would happen.) She hasn't eaten yet. Would appreciate prayers for all of us.

Dilemma: DH wants to call her Jenny. Jenny fits her better, but she already knows her name is Lilly. Any suggestions?

    We changed our Betsy's name. Think of it as the old name being associated with a difficult life & new name with pleasant association. I think it takes them a day or two, to try eating @ a new home. Betsy went a day without eating & throwing up (just from moving with us across town.) Changes are scary things. Congrats on your new kitty! She will learn what a nice secure home she has with you. emoticon

    Any name that you call her with a loving voice will be right. Congrats on your new cat!

Please help me name my Zhus.

Thursday, May 29, 2014

Please help me name my Zhus. They didn't come with the tags.

Left is a cat. It purrs, 'dances' to music, and makes other cat sounds.

Middle has a butterfly 'tattoo' and makes a few cats sounds and twitters.

The one on the right I think belongs to the "Rockstar" group. He says, 'woohoo', giggles and dances to music, and snores.

Pumpkin seed butter RESULTS

Wednesday, May 28, 2014

Thank you my emoticon for your advice.

I mixed a bit of the butter with a bit of honey and spread it on my Ezekiel bread.

Tasted.... better. But sure is weird looking!!! emoticon

    That's good that you found a workable way to use the spread. I like pepitas (pumpkin seeds), so adding honey to the spread sounds quite tasty.

    Honestly, I really like pumpkin seed butter... I like mine with a little salt and chipotle pepper added. I enjoy it on a baked potatoe, or on celery/cucmbers, or just off a spoon!

Glad you found a way to enjoy it!

(I made the toast 'joke' because I thought you were gluten-free)

Pumpkin seed butter

Monday, May 26, 2014

Since there are quite a few foods I can no longer have, I've had to branch out and try different ones.

Hence, a jar of sprouted Pumpkin Seed Butter!

Label says: organic, creamy, crystal salt, a light and sweet tasting butter rich in enzymes, nutrients and easily digested. 1 oz = 151 calories

Hmmm.... it's an ugly shade of green!

Yes, it is creamy.

Taste? It doesn't taste sweet to me, yet not bitter.

WHAT is the WORLD do I DO with it now??? emoticon

    The pumpkin seeds are green to start with, so that accounts for the colour.

My suggestion is slso to use it as a spread as well, e.g. on toast, like you might with peanut butter.

Hope it works for you!

    Maybe add some of your sugar to it that you like. As for the color the pumpkin seeds turn green when they are roasted.
