Tickety Boo



After yesterday’s Talk To Me Tuesday, and the news that my very own stripey ball of fur and regular TTMT guest, Tackett is very, very sick, you all did some extra-ordinary things.

You spread the word about my TACKETT sale:

Use coupon code TACKETT right here on Sewhooked and in my Etsy Shop for 25% off your total order until August 31. This special coupon has been created as a fundraiser for my beloved and sick kitty, Tackett. Tackett is a regular visitor to Talk To Me Tuesday and even has his own Facebook page. The great majority of the patterns I’ve designed have come into life with Tackett sitting in my lap or on my feet.

Lots of you shopped and didn’t use the coupon at all. Everyone that shopped sent along heartfelt wishes and love for my furbaby.

I received a number of donations from friends and long-time readers to help with Tackett’s medical expenses; totally and completely unexpected. Very much appreciated.

There have been good thoughts, prayers and well wishes from all over the world. I can feel the love heading our way via email, text message, LJ, Facebook and Twitter.

So, here’s where we are today:

So far, he’s had a complete battery of blood tests, urinalysis, an ¬†ultrasounds and some liver cells have been extracted.¬†Tackett has lost about three pounds and he is terribly bony. He has been diagnosed with a serious liver infection, which is most likely hepatitis. There is a possibility that he has lymphoma. There’s a more thorough test for that, which is being done by a specialist. We won’t know the results for a few more days. He’s on three prescription medications for the infection and liver health, as well as a high protein, gluten-free diet to help him gain weight. Tackett is also on meds for hyperthyroidism, which he was diagnosed with last year. That complicates things a bit, too, as it also causes weight loss.

Because Tackett is a very vocal boy and is very clearly stressed by being at the kitty hospital, he returned home to us yesterday for treatment and recovery in the peace and quiet of his comfort zone. I’ll be his nurse and my family will be the support staff. ūüôā

Despite everything, he remains his usual, sweet, cuddly and talkative self. He doesn’t have as much energy as he usually does, of course, but it doesn’t stop him from wanting his snuggles and to be petted.

Thank you all for your support in this. Tackett means the absolute world to me and to my family. He’s been part of our lives for 12 and a half years, and anything we can do to help him get healthy again, we absolutely will do.

Love to and gratitude to you all,

Love For Lily, A Thank You

Two weeks ago, I told you about Lily, the kitten my sister and her husband adopted after finding her abandoned near my parents’ home out in the country.

This is her story, and our thank you.

We now have all the money we need to pay for Lily’s medical expenses. We might even have a little left over to donate to our local Humane Society.

We quite literally can’t thank you enough.

Click here to learn more about Lily’s story.

Stocking for Lily
Here’s a little something I made for Lily. I was lucky enough to act as her post-surgery kitten sitter this week while my sister and brother-in-law were at work. She was a joy to be with every day and I will miss my mid-day kitten break!

Don’t miss my Blog Hop Party Giveaway! I have a free pattern and a fun giveaway, too!
