Happiness and sadness today.
Happiness because it's Wille's 15th birthday and sadness because Mini was hit by a car at lunch time and is in the intensive care unit of the Emergency vet clinic.
Now all we can do is hope for the best.
Benita – I’m so sorry to hear about Mini. Sending good thoughts your way.
I am so sorry to hear about Mini. I hope it get well soon.
Oh no! I am sending all my kitty-love to Mini through the ether.
Happy Birthday to Willie and take care.
So sorry to hear about Mini! Hope all is well at the end of the day.
A big happy birthday, though, to Wille. Fifteen is quite a mature number for a birthday. Beautiful photos you shared with us!
Congratulations to Willie and all of you. Hope Mini gets well soon. Best wishes for all.
Oh poor Mini and also Wille that had a bad news in his day!
I am so sorry to hear that and hope everything will be ok soon!
Oh no! That’s terrible, and more terrible still to happen on an otherwise happy day. Best wishes to Wille, Mini, and all of you.
Sending love & good wishes. xoxo
We send tons of love and
get-well-vibes from Iceland.
Congratulations to Wille.
Til hamingju með afmælið! 🙂
Happy Birthday to Willie and hope Mini gets well soon.
Like Jen I’m sending good thoughts your way.
Lots of positive thoughts to Mini. Happy Birthday Wille.
Poor Mini. Sending good vibes from Portland, OR. Happy Birthday Willie!
Oh no! Thinking good thoughts for you from all the way in Washington, D.C. My kitty was hit by a car many years ago and went on to live to a nice old age after she recovered. I’m hoping the same for Mini.
So sorry that this happened on Wille’s birthday. Poor kid. 🙁
sorry about your kitty.
did you make that beautiful cake yourself?
hope you have a somewhat nice party anyway!
I’m so sorry to read about your cat. My cat, Timothy, has been through many scrapes, and we always say that he’s used up some of his 9 lives! I’m praying for your little one, hoping she will recover completely.
So sad that it happened on your son’s birthday. I hope he had a somewhat happy party anyway. The cake is beautiful as always. Please keep us all posted.
oh dear. Poor Mini. I know how I would feel if Claude, my cat was in hospital. I really hope that she comes through. What a terrible day for it to happen.
I am so sorry to hear about Mini. Happy thought for a quick recovery. Happy Birthday to Willie.
Best wishes for Mini and Willie.
Hope it will work out all right
Oh no! Mini and your family is in my thoughts. Having something happen to one of my pets is one of my greatest fears. I hope she gets healed quickly.
Hoppas allt ordnar sig till det bästa!
Thinking of Mini today, while wishing Willie a Happy 15th.
Oh my goodness. Get well Mini!
Oh, no. I am so very sorry to hear that. I have two kitties and I know how special they are. My thoughts are with you all.
What a beautiful cake! I am sorry to hear about Mini. Our kitty is being spayed today, and it really feels like some little furry something is missing.
Happy birthday Wille!
And fingers crossed for Mini….
Happy birthday Willie! And sending goosd vibes to Mini all the way from Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Well, there’s a reason they say that cats have nine lives. I am sending healing wishes for Mini.
And happy birthday wishes to Wille. What a darling cake!
I’m so sorry to hear about Mini and am sending good thoughts to you and yours…your birthday cake, decorations and coordinating gift wrapping are brilliant. All the best….
So sorry to hear about Mini. Sending my thoughts and prayers.
Really a day with mixed feelings.
Hopeing for the best too
We’ll be praying for Mini!! xo
Best wishes for the recover of Mini!
Hoping everything go well
Poor Mini! I am so sorry.. you know that cats have seven lives…I once had a cat who was also hit by a car…no blood outside but huge damage inside..even a broken hip…but cats are sooo elastic that they can cope with very bad accidents…and have a recovery rate that is incredible!! My cat with broken hip was jumping to the bed in one week!!!..At first she was pretty still…but as the days passed…she began to recover.
I must say I had more than one cat injured in my life and my experience says that only previously ill ones don`t make it.. I even have a blind cat.
I recommend not leaveing the cat too long away from home…only the necesary..they begin to recover much faster when they return home and feel the warmth and love and care of their family.
This little blind cat my parents have..was lying at the vet without even moving..they said that they didn´t think she would make it…my mother saw her lying there alone and insisted in taking her home..she thought she wasn´t getting enough care and love..she was right. My father fed her with a syringe for a long time …and all that love and care made her recover.
Sorry for the long comment…but i thought maybe my experience could help you.
Oops! Are they nine lives?? Not seven??.. even better then!!
Oh no! So So Sorry. Wishing you all the luck nine lives can bring one sweet kitty. Happy Birthday to Will. I do hope this birthday is not overshadowed by what could be such sadness.
Sending you hugs and kisses!
Oh Benita! Sending good thoughts your way!!
Oh gosh! I really really hope Mini pulls through! Hang in there!!!!!
Oh, no! Get better soon, Mini! And happy birthday, Wille. Sorry you have to share your special day with such a sad occasion.
So, so sorry to hear about sweet little Mini’s accident! Lots of love and get-well thoughts to her, and a very Happy Birthday to Wille.
Sending good wishes your way. Hoping that Mini is ok and that Wille has a happy birthday despite the bad news. The photos are beautiful.
I’m hoping right along with you that Mini pulls through. And also I hope that Wille managed to enjoy his birthday despite the accident.
Sending Wille best wishes for a happy birthday from London, and willing Mini on to get well soon. Lovely photos, thanks. It never occurred to me to co-ordinate a birthday cake with presents but Im going to do it from now on.
My cats are indoor/outdoor as well and although we live on a quiet street this is something I worry about as well. Mini just has to be OK with all of us sending healing thoughts her way and what an awful thing to happen on your son’s birthday. Really hoping it all works out well. Mini is so lovely!!!
Oh my, this really upset me! I am hoping so much Mini will be okay. Hugs to you.
Oh, gosh…I do hope Mini is okay…how terrible for all of you.
I hope Wille still has a Happy Birthday as much as possible.
I’m very sorry. I hope everything turns out well.
all best to willie. and sending good thoughts mini’s way.
…Very sorry to hear that. I hope things will get better for Mini and she soon return back home.
love and hope to mini and birthday wishes for willie from los angeles.
Oh so sad.I hope she is okay. x
Sending Mini very positive energy. I hope she recovers quickly.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY,WILLIE ,TANTI,TANTI AUGURI DI BUON COMPLEANNO!!SORRY FOR MINI :(.
Happy Birthday to Wille!
I am looking to hear good news about Mini from you.
Having a cat myself I know how upsetting this must be for all of you. Sending my good thoughts Mini´s way.
Happy Birthday to Wille! I love his cake, and the gift wrapping… looks like DVDs?
And I hope Mini will be OK, and that her accident did not spoil Wille’s special day for him.
So sorry to hear this news, and thinking of you and Mini, hope Wille did not get too upset on his birthday.
Oh, Benita, I’m so sorry you have to deal with all the stress of an injured family member. Hope Mini has a full recovery soon!
Hope Willie can still have a pleasant birthday.
Oh no! Poor little Mini. I’ll be thinking good thoughts and hoping for the best for the darling kitty.
Happy 15th birthday wishes to Willie, and I hope you will enjoy a year of a wonderful age…you can be “young” one day and “grown up” the next and “young” the day after that, and people will just smile and say, “Well, of course, he’s 15!”
Fingers and toes crossed for mini. I hope a happy birthday was had otherwise.
Hi Benita, Martin and Wille, you must be devastated! I am sooo sorry to hear about little Mini. I hope she will recover soon! We lost our Alfie this way many years ago and my cats have not been allowed outside anymore. I will say a special prayer to my mom, grandma and aunt in Heaven for her to pull thru. They loved cats and would want her to be well. I will be thinking of you. xxxx, Valeria
Oh! I’m so sorry. I hope Mini recovers well.
best wishes to Willie.
I’m so sorry to hear about Mini’s accident. I hope that she heals quickly.
Happy #15 to Willie.
I hope Mini recovers quickly and that the birthday boy was still able to enjoy his birthday a little.
So sorry- hope everything works out ok
Oh Benita, I am so sorry to hear about Mini. I bet Willie didn’t enjoy his birthday so much. All my best wishes coming your way.
Oh, I hope poor Mini recovers. That would be the best present for Wille’s birthday.
Oh dear. Pull through, strong Mini. Sweet girl! Sending lots of love your way.
Oh NO! I’m sending positive thoughts and hugs to everyone there.
I’m so sorry to hear about Mini! I hope she has a speedy and positive recovery.
I’ve been going through a lot with my pom, she broke her leg jumping out of my arms. 🙁 So after two surgeries, hopefully she’ll only need one more.
Many, many prayers headed your way for Mini!
happy birthday willie!
very sorry to here about mini.:( i’m a new reader, but have made it through enough of your posts to know how much your kitties mean to your family.
sending warm thoughts and hopes for a quick recovery for sweet little mini. my heart is with yours.
So very sorry to hear about Mini — I’ll definitely keep you all in my thoughts today.
Happy Birthday, Wille. The banners on the cake are brilliant.
I love your blog and eagerly read it every day! I’ve never posted a comment but felt I had to let you know that I send you warm thoughts and wishes for Mini. I lost a cat of 16 years and it was so hard. They truly become one of the family. Hugs to Mini!!
I really hope Mini is okay – I keep checking for updates. I don’t know what I would do if something happened to either of my kitties. I hope Wille was able to enjoy his birthday in spite of the sadness.
I’ve never posted a comment before even though I’ve been reading your blog almost everyday, I just wanted to let you know I’ll be sending good healing thoughts to Mini and I hope Willie is doing ok.
Nej!! Hoppas verkligen att hon kämpar sig igenom det! Så ledsen Wille att detta hände en dag när du skulle bara få vara glad. Vi tänkte fira Wille på fredag och hoppas då att vi även får fira att Mini kommer bli helt återställd.
Happy birthday to the birthday boy. So sad about the kitty. In hope she gets well!
I hope your beautiful cat is OK xx
i hope Mini will be fine! :-((
I had once a car accident traying to avoid one cat, ruined my car and the cat owner didn’t even say thanks for his alive helathy cat. I had to pay about 1000 euro for car damage. Since then my cats go only in our wired-in-garden.
How mixed your feelings must be! Best wishes! Take care.
so sorry to hear about Mini…
We had a bit of a nightmare with ours who broke his leg at age 14 and bounced back within a couple of weeks. He is like a new cat now…! Infact even more energetic than before. So fingers crossed!
Oh and Happy Birthday Willie…!
Benita, First I want to say that I LOVE your blog. It is truly inspiring. Very sad to hear about Mini, hope everything will be ok. Happy birthday to Wille (loving the cake and the decorations btw).
