This was a weekend filled with ups and down here at Chez Dietschyblossom. Those of you who follow me on Twitter know that we spent much of it tending to our sick Kali kitty. She’s been diagnosed with anemia, and it has been a challenge to get her to take her meds and especially, to eat. I think I spent more time cooking for her this weekend than I did for us – but it’s worth it if it works. We just need her well again.

Some of you have asked if you could help defray some of Kali’s veterinary costs, so after mulling it over and admitting that yes, we really could use the help, we’ve added a paypal button to this site, as well as to my personal blog. Our little family thanks you from the bottom of our hearts for all of the kind words, advice, encouragement, and support you’ve already given us.

    Yay chestnuts! I love chestnut season! It’s the best thing in autumn, when I eat roasted chestnuts at least twice a week. I’d eat them every day, but then the girlf would kill me
    Btw, Pete the cat, my own feline eating machine also loves them.

    Hugs to Kali, hoping she gets well soon.

  2. As always, everything looks scrumptious! Kirby has eagerness in every long lean fiber of his body. And poor Kali really looks tired…hope she is resting comfortably and will recover soon!

    The food looks especially delicious today.

    Hugs to everyone and hoping and praying all works out. 🙂

  4. I like the picture of the kitty peering over the kitchen chair looking at the chicken on the counter. When my kitty was a kitten, I used to have to pull a chair up to the counter so he could watch me cook. I’m sure he was hoping for a handout as well!

    Our sweet kitty had the same problem 6 months ago. I just wanted to tell you she made a full recovery! There were some very scary moments, we thought we’d lose her. The vet bills were scarier! But keep your chin up, keep cooking for her and she will get better! Please feel free to email me if you’d like.
