I'm getting a few things together for Valentine's Day here in the Kitchen Sitting Area,
but it's taking me a little longer this last week to get things accomplished.
So, I thought I'd share a little Valentine's Love while I'm getting the rest of it together.
I found this smallish topiary a couple of weeks ago and I thought I'd dress it up a little with a Valentine "Love" ribbon. You know my motto for instant Holiday decor..."tie a ribbon on it". I have this precious vintage Valentine probably from the 30's here with the topiary. It was never signed or sent, and someone kept it carefully packed away...
so this is a quick post for an idea
to give you some "instant" Vintage Valentine Inspiration.
You all know I have two kitty girls that are litter mates. One is a very big girl, Maine Coon. (Miss Wrigley); She's the one that's the camera hog and sleeps with us, The other is a short-hair tabby, and about half the size of her "big" sister. They are just now turning 13.
Miss Jenkins (the petite camera shy sweetie), started in a rapid decline a little before Christmas. She started losing weight and could no longer jump up on a chair. She was walking funny, and would slip and slide when she tried to sit down to eat or drink. Last week she was diagnosed as diabetic. No organ damage as yet, but I think we caught it just in time, as her blood sugar was over 500 and is supposed to be below 100. I've started giving her injections morning and evening, and I think it's been more traumatic for me than for her. She's showing signs of a teensy bit of improvement beginning just yesterday. So I'm praying and believing she will continue to get better. We have to use human insulin since her blood sugar is so high. I'm searching for ways to get the medication at a reduced price. No pet insurance so one vial of insulin is costing almost $300. It will have to be replaced before we use it all. yikes. If you have a diabetic pet, please let me know and if you have any little tips on medication, care and/or food.
OK, we'll be doing better soon. Love you all! Thank you for coming by to visit, and for always being dear sweet friends!
