Happy Valentine’s Day!

Valentine’s Day is about love…

Many of you sent get-well-wishes, purrs, thoughts, purrayers, special healing doggy- energy, barks and kisses, and love to my doggy sister Taylor.

It helped!!!!!

Taylor is doing much better! She almost walks like she did before (only morning stiffness due to her age.)
Further, only her head is still a little bit tilted and she has some restlessness and weird staring moments during her walks. But most of the time she is being her old self and doing what she likes to do. She is almost our active old lady again. She feels happy and we see happiness in her eyes again!!

We made some more photos last week, with Taylor and Asta and our other visitors, I’ll post them next week!

And because Taylor is feeling better, and I know my brothers, sisters and the staff are taking good care of her, I went on a short Valentine’s adventure with my friends…

We were with so many — to bring us all at Castello San Marco in Sicily, Opus had to make two trips with the Magic Flying Van.

After we all arrived and checked in we gave the others tickets for a surprise trip so we could have some time alone…

For what surprise trip… and the just the two of us photos (with Karl’s special Teddy Bear;-) and more photos about our Valentine’s Day with our friends, go to my husband’s place at The Cat Realm!!

But that is not all…
We went with a whole group of loving friends! You have to see their photos too: Asta, Sassy, Momo, Socks, Scylla & Charybdis…, and Opus, who introduces his mystery Valentine/girlfriend today!!

Happy Valentine’s Day!!

    Good thing Taylor got so much better and we could go to Sicily with our friends! And what a wonderful idea to send them of to a surprise trip and have all that time for just the two of us!
    But I am a bit cross with Opus who still has NOT revealed his mystery date!!!!
