Crazy CATstir Lady




Dear Blogging Community, Monkey Lovers, Freaks, Followers, Fellow Catstir Comrades,

Because you can't keep a good monkey down, I am launching a new business venture. I am selling Crazy Cat Lady Starter Kits at a remarkable price of only $24.95 (plus shipping and handling).

Now YOU can be a crazy cat lady too!

Don't make me do the math, you all know how much I despise math, but that is less than $4.15 per kitten.  What a deal!

These kittens are guaranteed to have blue eyes for the first 8 weeks of their lives AND... they all have tails.  Well, the little one in the back, the one crouched down, his tail is shorter than the rest but please don't hold that against him.  He's got a great personality.

Did I make you smile?  I hope so.  You have each given me so much this past week - Joy, Hope, Love, Compassion and remarkably, not one of you gave me pity - the one thing I don't need (besides catstir).

I could not have gotten out of bed today if it were not for YOU.

YES, it took me a long time to get out of bed (4:20 pm) but I did it.  AND, I took a shower and changed out of my PJ's.

True, the clothes I put on look a lot like PJ's but they are NOT.  Sweat pants and baggy shirt is one small step above floppy, flannel jammies.

And... I'm sitting by the fire, in the living room, sipping wine, and laughing at myself.

Tomorrow is a big day. Tomorrow is my first trip to Sloan Kettering hospital.  Tomorrow I get to hear someone talk about my catstir other than me.

I want to keep you all informed but I don't want to freak you out. Promise me you won't freak out. Stay calm, I'll be fine. I've got all of you by my side.

xoxoMonkeyME

    1. I don't think "all go well" is an option.. unless they tell me, the pathology report is wrong, I don't have catstir (my husband believe this).

      there is no good news associated with cancer. but thank you for commenting.

    1. Laughing, laughing! I believe you!... I'm putting little "serendipitous" tags on them as we speak (or, I type).

  14. Heh heh....lucky for you I'm too emotionally wasted and tired to freak out. Bring it on sister....now's the time. I'll be like the cute ambulance men. "Oh...I see you've lost your arm. Let's get some ice on that." DAMN they are calm. Completely unfazed. Unfortunately I am not as cute.

    I think listening to someone else besides you talk about cancer is going to be a healing event. It takes the catstir outside your body and places it on the table for inspection. The better to see all sides. My prayers are with you.

  15. Thanks for the offer, but two cats is my limit. (I'm not so rigid when it comes to wine...) Good luck tomorrow! I'll be sending positive thoughts and love your way.

  16. I am crazy scared of cats. I am going crazy myself over here. I had fallen in love and my love had been rejected. Keep calm Shannon, but I know it is not easy. Get someone to go with you. Bring one of your security guards. What's his name...

  17. I love that you've kept your great sense of humor! Stay positive and kick catstirs ass!

  18. Crazy about YOU, baby. I am one step ahead of you in the crazy cat lady department. I have the hairs on all my clothing to show it. Thinking about you, sending you strength over the miles.

  19. We are ALL here for you, sweetie!!!

  20. Can I send them back when they are adults?

    I made a girl laugh last night with one leg. I was trying to talk to her and she kept scowling. She was trying to be appalled and make make me embarrassed, so I talked loud to the guy in front of me about my crutch experiences. I said "Well.. at least I didn't have to shave my armpits when I was on crutches. It was funny to watch her trying to get up off the floor laughing with only one leg. Freak me out, I dare you.
