********************************************

 
Dearest Furr Friends on Internets,

Lil Bear: Earlier Saturday Afternoon about 4pm, Mom waz getting ready to do a lates Good Friday/Easter Post when Uncle Mike burst into the room.

Mom: Uncle Mike had been working on the kitchen sink and going back and forth to the garage thru the back door.  Since Uncle Mike's house sits on a corner, the back door is actually on the left side of the house and opens onto the covered patio that connects the garage to the house.  Uncle Mike had let Toby out thru the front door to get daily exercise.  Uncle Mike and I always let Toby out the front door for a good run, cause he always jumps out the door onto the concrete porch, scurries around the side of house thru the covered patio and over to the same spot to eat grass in the backyard.  But I didn't know Toby had been out until Mike came into the computer room.

Lil Bear:  I saw what happened...Uncle Mike was coming back in house and Cousin Toby runned in wif out saying nuffin.  Him usually meows so Mom or Uncle Mikes know to keep screen door open.  Screen am got spring dat make door close real fast! Mom got her foot hurted one time cause door slam shut so quick.

Uncle Mike didn't see Toby coming in til screen door closed real loud and Toby runned behind couch.  Uncle Mike tried to get Toby to come out but he ran under the recliner.  Den Uncle Mike moved the recliner and Toby ranned into da kitchen and jumped onto the window sill above the sink.

Mom: So Uncle Mike said, please come help me check Toby. He was outside and the door slammed on him. He's hiding in the kitchen window. I left the computer room and went into the kitchen.  But Toby wouldn't let me check him.  He growled and refused to leave the window.  Mike called our vet who was still open.  Since I couldn't get Toby to leave the window, I brought the carrier to him. Surprisingly, Toby crawled out of the window on his own and into the carrier. I caught a glimpse of the end of his tail and the tip was bloody.  Mike drove while I held the carrier.  Upon examination, Dr. Johnson moved the long hair away and showed us how the skin was gone from Toby's tail tip.  Unfortunately, that meant in order for Toby's tail to heal, the tip will have to be amputated.  He could do the surgery, but being so late in the day he suggested that we take Toby to the Emergency Clinic so the staff there would be able to monitor him during the night.

We left Willowbend Animal Hospital and took Toby to the Emergency Vet.  It is now midnight here in Kansas, and due to a few other emergencies, Toby has not had the surgery yet. 

Since most of you won't see this until morning... will add a post about his surgery as soon as we have that info.

Lil Bear:  Please purr fur Toby as him gets well frum surgery... Toby and hims siblings will be 4 years old in May. Mom am wondering if any bloggers has a cell phone dat we could text during an emergency so we can lets our innernets frinds know sooner to purrz and pray.  Am anyone doing a purr list likes dats or puts ups a post during mergencies???  If you knows, please leave commints and send us an email wif purrsonal stuffs to laugh_safely ats yahoo.com. 

Mom: Please keep Uncle Mike in your purrs too.  Toby is his first "cat," and Mike is feeling really sick over hurting Toby.  Mike is also losing his job in June due to company takeover by a larger corporation who is moving the whole assembly plant to Warsaw, Indiana. 

Lil Bear and I will write Our Good Friday/ Easter Post Tomorrow,
including Remembering whom Angel's Lil Bear was named for:
Puzzles Spunky Bear, aka Boo Bear, Good Friday 1989 - Oct 25, 2008.

Bearz Head Am Bin Found

Sshhh... purr leze.. LuLu am tired out frum helping the Mom bring back Lil Bear's head.

Thank you to all our innernets frinds fur helping us find hims head and put it back wif him body...  We am so furry Thursday Thankful to have Bear all back together, and him am awakes agin!

Here ams what happind last week in Bear Lost Hims Head.  Sumtime between St. Patrick's Day and April Fool's Day, Mom tooks a photo of Bear, but him's head waz not in da photo!  Mom looked evfurry where. Her even looked onda innernets.  

And then her saw Lil Bear's head inside a castle somewheres in Kansas.  LuLu asked our friends to help us find out where that castle was.  Marg of Marg's Animals and Jan of Jan's Funny Farm figured out dat Bear's head hads gotten losted in photos of Coronado Heights Castle.
 
Mom tole me dat Coronado Heights Castle was built by the Works Progress Administration in 1932
on a hill northwest of Lindsborg, Kansas and dat a man named Francisco Vásquez de Coronado gave up looking fur the seven cities of gold there and returned to Mexico. The WPA also built a stone picnic site, a restroom, and a stone front gate at the park.  (see  http://www.lindsborghistory.org/)

Last weekend the Mom and LuLu wents to Coronado Heights to looks for Bear's Head....  They went inside the Castle and searched everywhere, but hims head could not be seen... They coulds hear Bear meowing but could not see hims head!!!  Then they heard a whisperss... come back under the red moon...

So LuLu and Mom comed home... Bear was still sleeping under the laundry and didn't know hims head was still losted....  and without hims head in the photo, Bear could not wake up. And him am bin sleeping fur days!!!

Sammy from onespoiledcat suggested that maybe Lil Bear's body could borrow another head until we found hims real head... so the Mom found a bunny cat... it didn't really fit and Bear still could not wake up. 


Tuesday around 2 in da morning, LuLu and the Mom returned to Coronado Castle and waited for red lunar eclipse to be full.

Mom and LuLu wore speshul glasses to see red things under the red moonlight.... and then they could see Lil Bear's Head!!!  All cause of the Red Lunar Eclipse.


But when Mom went to pick up hims head in a warm towel, Lil Bear's head meowed, rolled out of the castle and bounced up into the Moon!!!  "Mommy can't catch me!!"






The Mom called, "Bear come down from there!  You don't belong in the moon!"  And LuLu cried, Oh Cousin Bear... Please come down frum there!  You am scaring me!"

Bear's Head sighed and said, "But I am having fun dream... I don't want to wakes up yet!" And den he bounced back down into Mom's arms.  Mom wrapped hims head in a towel and hurried home.  When Mom and Lulu gotted home, they carefully put Lil Bear's head back into the photo and Bear woke up!!! 



"Mom!!!" Lil Bear meowed, "I hads da funniest dream!  I went thru a little white hole in the floor and found myself inside a one room castle, but I couldn't finds my body! And I meowed and Meowed but I couldn't finds you no wheres.  Den you comed into da Castle and called my name but everything turned red.  And den I turned red.. and den you tried to catch me and I jumped into da red moon!!!  Den I bounced down into your arms...and you tooks me home... dat was funny... Coulds dat reelly happin?  I was scared you was goned and I would never get home..."

The Mom:  No silly of course not. 
                      You will always be my Lil Bear.
Lil Bear:  Oh Goods!  I loves you Mom!  Where am foods, Ize hungry.  (Lil Bear jumps up and runs to the kitchen.)

LuLu:  But Mom! we went to Coronado Castle and Bear bounced into da moon and... um.... oh never mind. I goh sleepy wif Annie May... maybe I haves fun dream too.

Annie May:  And Dat am our Story fur Thankful Thursday...
