Advice from the cat

Yesterday was National Cat Day - well in my house of 3 Siamese cats - that is everyday!  And they let me know it since they allow me to live with them.  My daughter's cat, Casio is our male alpha cat who really is in charge.  She is allergic to the cats and had built a tolerance; however, now that she went away to college it is gone so when she comes home she wants to be with them and medications just don't control her symptoms.  We have seen an allergist who has suggested she receive allergy shots, but she believes it is too time consuming at this time in her life. She thinks she doesn't have time now.....just wait until she has a family....can't tell them anything though, hehe.  For my card, I used an image from Bugaboo, and a cute sentiment from TLC.

This is so cute! I love the sentiment! Adorable Bugaboo image and beautiful colouring! I can't sleep tonight - it's 3:30 a.m. - I have a lot of sleepless nights - I hope I get sleepy soon so I can go to bed!

Oh my, I can see why Casio is the alpha! Big & beautiful!
Your card is so cute. I think the fireman is telling kitty not to go back up that tree ...

Awwww, that sweet image makes my heart melt. Our cat, Teddy, used to climb up into a tree when he was a kitten and then we'd hear his plaintive meows as he begged us to come get him. Fortunately, the tree was a small one right next to the house, so I was able to climb up on a chair and "save" him. Of course, within an hour he'd be up there again! Silly kitty! Your Casio is so handsome with that gorgeous fur! Like your daughter, I am allergic to cats (along with a lot of other things) and I did go through the allergy shots while in college. I didn't have much of a choice because I developed asthma from all the other things I had reactions to. So helping with the cat allergy was a bonus!

My vet hubby is somewhat allergic to cats, too. It's an occupational hazard....many vets over time with so much exposure develop animal allergies. He has to wash his face and hands after holding the cats and he doesn't like them near his pillow. So go figure which side of the bed they all want to be on???? lol...

This fireman rescuing the kitty is so sweet. Love the firetruck paper and the bright colors. Great advice from the cat, too!!!
Thanks so much for linking this up in the Cat Lovers Hop!!!
