Holiday of Hugs

The Meezers had a great idea. They decided to give out hugs to all of their friends. We were talking in the Chatzy room last night and decided instead of just one day of hugs, we should give out hugs all weekend long. We want to thank all of you for being our friends, and tell you a little bit about how we came to start blogging.

About a year and a half ago, Mom had to be in bed for 9 weeks with a back disc that was bulging and pressing on her sciatic nerve. It eventually ruptured and had to be repaired surgically. Before this time, we had read some of the blogs, but we didn't really spend a lot of time with you all. While Mom was in bed, the only thing that kept her sane was her computer and all of our friends' blogs. We read about you, laughed with you and cried with you, and watched from the sidelines. Mom had her surgery, got better and went back to work, and we still watched from the sidelines, reading and laughing and crying. But most of all, admiring. We admired the way everyone came together to lend a shoulder to cry on, or to encourage one another when they needed it, but most of all, how everyone helped out in whatever way they could whenever some cat or bean needed it. But still we watched.

And then I (Tiki) was diagnosed with diabetes, and Mom realized that she was tired of making us sit and watch from the sidelines. She saw the fun the other cats and beans were having, and she wanted to make sure we had the same fun. So, we thank you for welcoming us into the community with open arms, and we thank you for being our friends, and we wrap our arms around all of you and give you a giant HUG!
PS - Oh - and Happy Birthday Mom ML!

Bonnie going over the bridge was such shocking and sad news. But the Meezers hug-a-thon is a wonderful way to celebrate Bonnie.

So hugs, hugs and more hugs to all of you guys!

we are so very happy you guys started to blog. our mommy also read the blogs for a long time before she let us blog. she was afraid that our blog would be boring and that people would not like us. she's very insecure sometimes. SHEESH. you would think with a name like MEEZER MOM she would have the MEEZ-A-TUDE that we have. ::SIGH:: We still have a lot to teach her.

BIG SPECIAL {{{{{HUGS}}}} to all of you - we love you guys
