This here adorable kitty is my cat-niece, Smokey (pronounced "Shmokey"). Smokey belongs to my sister LA and brother-in-law (hee hee- still get a kick out of saying that) Rex. Her hobbies include napping on the couch, napping on the bed, and climbing on top of people and sitting in their laps to allow them to pet her. She is the most cuddly kitty known to man (not to mention, the only one I have seemed to have built up any sort of allergy tolerance to- as you know, I am deathly allergic to most cats). Well, Lil' Shmokes is going in for surgery this morning, to remove two small bladder stones. Her doctor said it is a rather routine surgery, but Smokey will still need to remain in the hospital for a couple of days post-surgery, for observation. (Note: This whole experience will be traumatic for her on many levels, but she is quite the spunky one, so I'm sure she will bounce back in no time.) I hope we may keep her in our thoughts today and wish her a speedy recovery! Hang in there, Shmokes!

Aunty - Thank you for the post on your blog. I feel like a celebrity. Mom & Dad dropped me off at the vet this morning. I'm told I'm scheduled for surgery at 11:00 am today, but I don't know what that means. All I know is I'm fricken' hungry and thirsty as I was cut off from food and water at 10:00 pm last night. I can't wait to go home. This place is too noisy with all the strange creatures running around and making noise.

Love you,
