Feline's Favorite Friend Award ~ on Caturday

This is our friend Donna, who saved my life two years ago when Bonnie disappeared.  Donna came twice a day to feed me.  And she held her cell phone by my ear so I could hear Bonnie talking to me, and then Donna would give me treats.

I gave Donna a "Feline's Favorite Friend Award of Excellence ... for feeding me and giving me treats when Bonnie left me all alone for over two whole weeks."  I added my picture to the award and signed it, "Kiki Jacobs, Cat-in-Charge."  Donna put the award in a nice frame.

And now she's in the hospital with the flu and her heart is weak, Bonnie told me.  That's not good.  I know now that's where Bonnie disappeared for so long, into a hospital.  I told Bonnie to take Donna a book she could read while she's there, a book you may have read yourself.  The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss is one of my favorites, though I would never wear a hat myself.  Since it's about a cat, I hope it reminds Donna of me.  Here's the book's beginning.  Have you read it?

The sun did not shine.
It was too wet to play.
So we sat in the house
All that cold, cold, wet day.

Bonnie usually does this meme on Fridays.  It's hosted by Katy at A Few More Pages. Bonnie was at the hospital with Donna yesterday and hasn't posted anything lately, so I don't think anybody will mind if I do it for her this time, even if it's Caturday instead of Friday.

I hope your friend is feeling better! Scary stuff

Kiki is sleeping right now, so I'll respond for both of us. Yes, Donna is some better today. The scary part is her weak heart and swollen ankles, not the flu, which motivated her to go to the emergency room. I think she's about over the flu, but she'll be in the hospital for several more days. On Monday, she'll have an arteriogram, which was postponed because of the fever from the flu. Donna is Kiki's "other" best friend, along with me.

Bonnie, I am so sorry to hear about Donna - thinking of you both and hoping for a smooth recovery for her. Hang in there!
