Papi updates and Pin Cushion

Papi is recovery quick, we bought a different cone and I think he feels less clumsy in this one


I give him one pain killer on Day 2, he eats and drinks just like normal, doesn't seem to be in pain and even jump up to the couch and bed a few times when we caught it too late. I tried to take a nap on the couch late afternoon and he again whines non-stop, my husband came downstairs and stop him, after a few times, whenever he heard the foot steps of my husband, he just stop, now I know he only whines because he knew he can bully me! : (
I let him sleep with me without the cone at night, he slept well and so did I.

On Day 3, I skip the pain killer, I am a big believer of not taking pills unless we have to, Papi seem fine all day, he jumps, runs, we try to stop him but a lot of time he is just too fast, however, we still carry him up and down the stairs and try not to let him move too much, he eats and drinks well just like nothing had happened, I put the cone on him only when I can't watch him, so.... all is good now!

I didn't do much in the craft room but I remember some of you asked about the pin cushion when I posted this gift basket months ago


It was a Christmas present for a friend in Germany, the cushion was made with muslin, I stamped the image on it and then embellished with flowers, lace, ribbon and button


Olivia loves gardening and has a Vegetables garden at her backyard, she told me her fruits grow so well that she has to give some away every time it harvest. I made her some tags so when she give away her homegrown stuff.




Thanks for stopping by.....

Oh Kirsty, I was so pleased to read that Papi is healing fast... he's a healthy little fellow, so has a strong constitution! Another day or so, it will be all forgotten! (and LOL, yes, he knows he can whine with getting his way with you! I have the same with my very old cat! I'm a complete push-over!)
I just LOVE the little basket of goodies... that little pin cushion is adorable!

I was worried Papi got hurt and had to read below to find out. Thank goodness he is ok!! Sorry for the first rough night, that is hard for anybody with a pet. Glad to hear it's getting better and hope he's better each day. You are so good to him!! Hugs and prayers for you both!
