Mom's Adventure and an Award

Hi everyone, Carmine here.

We has an award to share, but first mes wants to tell you a little story.

The other night, the Mom woke up in a lot of pain.  Hers said hers tummy and chest hurted.  Hers had the leaky eyes and everything.  After a little whiles of nothing helping hers, the Mom's friend decided to call someone.  The next thing mes knows, there's a bunch of strange mens in our house!  Theys asked the Mom a bunch of questions and then theys took my mommy away!  Mes was very confused cause the Mom doesn't go anywheres when it is dark outside.  Mes was very worried.

The Mom said theys took hers to the hospital.  Hers said hers doctor was very nice.  After hers doctor made sure it was nothing else, hers said theys gave hers some really yucky medicines to take for hers severe heartburn flare up.  Hers told me hers thinks theys tasted about as good as mes antibiotic....poor mommy!  The Mom said the medicines made hers feel better, though.

The Mom said hers and the doctor agreed it was probably stress that set off this heartburn flare.  Mes thinks if the Mom petted mes more - like all the time - then hers wouldn't be so stressed.

The doctor told the Mom hers might have to go see the GI specialist again since hers is already on two heartburn/tummy medications.  Me is sure the Mom would appreciate some purrs for hers tummy.  Mes just wants the Mom to be well.

Now for our award!  We received this award from Kitty Cat Chronicles and The Cat on my Head!  Wasns't it nice of them to think of us?  Thank you both so very much!  If you don't know thems, you should definitely visit their bloggies.  They is pawesome friends. :)

This award comes with a few rules:

1. Visit and thank the blogger who nominated you.
2. Acknowledge that blogger on your blog and link back.
3. Share 7 random facts about yourself.
4. Nominate up to 15 bloggers for the Shine On award, provide a link to their blog in your post, and notify them on their blog.

Here are 7 random facts about us!

1. Milita gets fed on the kitty tree.  It is supposed to help her get a little exercise.

2. Milita loves to lay on one (specific) end of the couch, and she gets upset if anything is left in *her* spot.

3. Jewel purrs when she gets treats!

4. Jewel doesn't mind bus or car rides too much.  She likes to watch the people when we take the bus to the vet.

5. Sometimes Carmine sleeps on the Mom's pillow with her.  Other times, he sleeps by her feet.

6. Whenever someone holds Carmine, he pretends he's a ragdoll.

7. The Mom usually reads every night before hers goes to sleep.  Hers especially loves books with cats in them, like "The Cat Who..." series.
