Feet, Friends and Fame on Friday

Sorry we've been MIA this week. Mommy has been working in the store a lot and will thru May. It is making her very tired and her feets hurt. Even tho all pregnant women get swollen feets and ankles, one of mommy's is reeeeeealy bad. It is one size larger and puffy puffy. It is hard to tell from this picture, but it is really big.



Don't worry, it is just because #2 is spending his time on the left side of her belly so the veins are not working right. The doctor says it is pretty common. What stinks for me is by the time she gets home from work, she props her feets up, lays on her right side (to make #2 move over there - he really really hates that) and won't help me blog! Jeez.

Mommy's doctor said that after her foot is propped up, daddy should rub the blood out of her foot to help the circulation. So our new routine is to get mommy "comfy" and we rub her foot. That is right, I'm a good kitty so I help! (We won't discuss the snagged heating pad Bendrix left behind...)





Mommy did do one important thing and that is help me get famous! It is no Hallmark card like Daisy got, but it is really cool. You probably remember my sweet lady cat Brandi got to do a guest spot on the cool website Paw-Talk. They asked me to guest spot too!! I told the story of my rescue and my first six months. I hope you will all go read it. You can see my very first photo!

Paw-Talk news has great articles and discussions on furry, feathered and scaley family members. Be sure to add them to your bloglist!

My mommy promises that this weekend we will sit on the sofa until we have visited all our friends. We'll probably try to get to everyone this way for a while. I'll do a Thursday 13 on what I've learned so far, but one big thing is that pregnant women are cranky about being comfortable (they are generally cranky about a lot of stuff...)

Oh, your poor mommy! My feet hurt now in sympathy! You sure look like you're helping out a lot with the nightly ritual, Hendrix. I bet your daddy appreciates it too! (I also bet you could make your mommy laugh if you gave her toes a kissie!)

We loved your Paw Talk story Hendrix. It makes us very proud of you and your Beans ! I have a bit missing from my ear too, plus my diabetes means my mummy has to take care of me all the time, but that just makes her love me more ! Heh heh.
Good work with the feets rubbing.

Do you know, I think a quick lick of one of your mum's toes will make her feel better. I know this because of the squeal of joy you will get.

Your mommy's poor feet! Hendrix, you are doing a great job of taking care of her. Ivy will be getting some tips from her. So far all she can manage to do is boob and bladder walk all over mommy at bedtime, and I'm not so sure that is helping.

Congrats on your totally pawsome guest spot!

We're really sorry your mom is having so much trouble with her feet. We're sure your doing your part to help her get better.

We went and read your story on paw talk. Congrats on your feature. It's quite a story, we're glad you found your home and your family with everything you had to deal with.

What a good man-cat you are for helping to rub you mommy's feet. Although her feet may be sore and swollen, she's has a lovely pedicure!

Hendrix dood, the mom had to lay her butt down fer months when da blurpy was inside. Her feets were so big it hurt to walk but we made sure she didnt move much. Keep sittin on yer mom and make sure she doesnt get up! It makes fer good cuddle time dats fer sure.
