Follow Up Friday: Lots of Tidbits

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Our friend, Miss Jodi, initiated this great idea to update readers on previous posts.  She created a lovely badge to go with her idea.

Forever Fluffy:

We have been inundated with kindness!  Mom and I continue to dig out of our comment pile.  We deeply apologize for tardy replies; we’re up to 50 something… bear with us we will answer every thoughtful soul who so graciously stopped by to offer condolences.  Also, thanks to our bestest feline friend, Savvy, and Miss Linda for commissioning such a beautiful badge from Miss Ann @ Zoolatry. We smile every time we scroll past it.

Speaking of Miss Ann, check out the auction going on to help her family’s medical situation.  Mom donated a $150 Sessions with the Kitchen Counselor gift certificate. Also, Savvy and Miss Linda, are looking for three good K9s!  (couldn’t resist writing that…)  In case you’ve missed it, my sweet Savannah hosts a monthly series, Life Changing Interviews with Savannah: Real Cat and Dog Rescues Are Talking…“, and while her feline slots filled up swiftly, three K9 slots remain. 

Blustery Mr. Hurricane/Tropical Storm Isaac:

Once again, the pet blogging community left Mom with her jaw hanging open.  The outpouring of genuine care, good wishes, concern, prayers, and support before AND after the storm passed us and deluged (vocab building project VBP) the Gulf Coast was extraordinary.  We passed on some preparation suggestions to Rumpy and family, who moved into the “H” zone the week before.  We tried to check on those blog families in the area as well.  Here’s what we know from our connections:

  • Miss Wendy, one of our bff’s from Golden Rescue S. Florida – everyone’s ok.
  • Miss Rebecca – our other bff from GRSF – took on water, wet vacced the inside of the house; waited for the water to drain and was planning to clean the debris in the backyard yesterday, before Jack did another drop and roll!
  • Miss Beverly and Neve’s daughter/human sister, husband and family – all ok, not sure if daughter’s house took on water yet, they’re still at another family member’s home.
  • My Grandma’s niece-in-law (she sent in name and now Mom cannot find it… darn) and Gus, the 120 lb K9 evacuated from their houseboat before the storm hit… so far, no further updates.
  • Miss Mary Ann’s friend, “Louisiana Lori” – everyone’s ok, (attending LSU game this weekend – good sign!) – fence down in parts, a few more house issues and some other family members yet to check in.


Remember we worried about seeing only one blue macaw?  Miss Mary Ann first shared with us and then we saw for ourselves the duo flying magnificently overhead.  We hope they found cover during Mr. Blustery Tropical Storm Isaac.

Speaking of avians, we neglected to mention that during the few weeks of daily sightings, Miss Mary Ann named the arrogant persistent peacock! For those of you familiar with the TV show, M*A*S*H, Charles Winchester joined the unit after a few seasons.  He was a haughty (VBP) arrogant, know-it-all, who thought he was above everyone else, just like you know who!  So, may we present, Winchester the Peacock!

Another great catch up day.

    • Hey Litchi, Hey Sabre, Hey Boks, Hey Frogs??? Jet here. Hi Miss Susan.

      Yes, we’re A-ok, Gulf, not so much. Miss Susan, they keep getting battered, awful I say, awful.

      We’re glad you do as well, no need to deal with weather events.

      Thanks for caring. 🙂

  1. You sure have had a lot to catch up on buddy!

    Thanks for the update from the storm – it must be very scary!! Our biggest threat here is Earthquakes – but luckily they’re rare!

    Have a fun weekend,

    Your pal Snoopy 🙂

    • Hey Snoopy, Jet here.

      You don’t know the half of it… I had to compress!

      Oh, gosh, Mom’s lived through 2 small earthquakes along the way, quite different than “H”s and tornadoes.

      Most welcome, wish the Gulf had a more positive outcome.

      You too, dude.

  2. Hi sweet Jetty – whew it has been busy for everyone – love Winchester the Peacock – I can’t believe you can see him just marching across the street – what a sight! plus those blue macaws – amazing!! so glad everyone is ok from the storm – poor people in LA I just saw on the news their houses are under water – tragic –

    I did see your post yesterday that Mom (she’e awesome) learned how to put up your pic on the blog! well you know how happy I get when I get to see your handsome face Jetty! sorry I forgot to respond, was stricken with a brutal migraine – went to the chiro today feel all better!!!

    love your catch up day! sending so many huge hugs and kisses to you, Mom, JJ, Rachel and Puffy xoxoxoxox

    • Hey it’s Jet here. Hi Miss Wendy.

      Oh no Miss Wendy, not a MIGRAINE… Rachel gets those aplenty, we understand and glad the chiro helped. Sending extra Jetty kisses and lovies. 🙂

      So happy you enjoyed Follow Up Friday, kind of brings stuff full circle… yes, the Gulf got hammered again with water, enough is enough I say!

      You like my Gravatar? (blushing…)

      Sending TGIF Jetty kisses and JJ hugs to you, Mr. David, Jacob, Cassie, Rex and Barkley xoxoxoxo

  3. Hey Jets, Jack here.
    Since you are doing follow up tidbits.( 1) Who won the dating game.? ( 2) I read with great interest your love of green (red) peppers, so today I gave Mom the sad puppy eyes and she said :I never thought about giving you peppers,but if they are good for Jetty than they are good for you. I loved them. The Princess of course turned up her nose, Actually she gives this haughty look and turns her head sideways. (3) I lost my bet, I did not get to drop and roll in all the amazing stuff, Mom cleaned it up and then hosed it down. There are still good smells out there but nothing to roll in. The Princess laughed (she was no help at all) at me losing the bet and says I owe you a treat for winning and called me a nasty smelly boy because I like stuff like that. . (4) The carpets dried out but they are stained (it looks like we have a new puppy who is not housebroken). Mom is anal about stuff like that so I bet she will be working on that or we will have new carpets in a couple of weeks (about the limit of her tolerance) (5) Glad everyone is safe from that Isaac.

    Mom sends belly rubs and ear pets to you and JJ.

    • Hey Jack, Hey Ginger, Jetty here. Hi Miss Rebecca.

      OMD, looks like you guys should be our Friday guest blogger!

      1. As it stands today, you are the “dude”, DUDE!!! you have it by one vote!
      2. At Casa Jet, we favor the red ones, as the green ones hurt Mom’s tummy. So excited you got to taste this wonderful delicacy! Ginger doesn’t know what she’s missing!
      3. Bummer, there’s always next time, I have confidence you will have another opportunity! (Sorry Miss Rebecca, gotta support my bud!)
      4. Darn, darn, darn… naughty water!
      5. Likewise.

      Sending Jetty kisses and JJ hugs to Miss Rebecca and belly rubs and massages to Jack and Ginger from Mom! xoxox

  4. p.s. Jetty- ask Mom when she has a minute to go the GRSF facebook page, under where the people post – someone posted a whole bunch of great pics from the renuion and guess who is in a fullbody shot picture??? YOU!!! I get so happy when I see pics of you – so darn handsome! xoxoxoxox

    • Hey it’s Jet here. HI Miss Wendy.

      Thanks for letting us know. Mom used to visit all the time, however, she’s been so busy, hasn’t had much time.

      Oh Miss Wendy, I’m deeply blushing now, I love you too. 🙂
