Baubles, Bead, Pearls

For some strange reason, mum dug out a pretty necklace to wear at home. Even though she is sitting around in her grubby home clothes, not doing much of anything.

Seems she found out about this lady from Max's mum Thumper. She is furry young and won't be living a long and full life because of breast cancer. They have tried lots of stuff, nothing seems to have helped over the years. She has decided that she won't do more treatments. You can go and read about her here, plus we give you a leaky eye warning.

So some of her furiends decided to honor her by doing pearls. That is why mum broke out the fancy stuff to wear, plus we got to model with it too. It is purrty, six pastel strands of faux pearls.

 Mum even kept it on until she went to bed. It looked nice with her bathrobe.

I've been framed!

Our mom needs to pull out her pearls. This is such a lovely gesture.

Mom is leaky eyed from reading her blog. She is going to go now and get out some pearls. Such a big fight Bridget has had. Mom is weighed down by so many people she knows now who are battling serious cancers.

It is a pretty necklace. Hmmm... I wonder if my ol' peep has a pearl necklace. I KNOW she has some pearl earrings. I'll get her to put those on... in honour of the nice lady. purrs

My human looked at the blog for just a few moments but it was too hard for her - a very good friend of hers died in 2005 of breast cancer. She was only 38.

We're sorry that this human is sick and won't get better. But this is a great way to honor her. The mom says she'll get her pearls out too.

We think that pearls go with everything, and it's great you guys and your Mum wore them in honor of such a brave lady.

What an excellent tribute! You both look great in pearls!

The Human readed the blog about the Lady and it made her sad. But she also admires the Lady's bravery in saying enough is enough, and she hopes the Lady gets that nice time with her husband without bunches of icky doctor stuffs. Godspeed, Nice Lady.

To answer your question: The grudge is because the Human 'bandoned me for Christmas Eve and Christmas. Yes, the nice neighbor ladies came and taked good care of me, but still.

Our mom got a lot of nice jewelery from her sister when she passed away 2 years ago. She really loved jewelery and there were several strands of pearls too. There was a set our Grampie brought home from Japan in the 40's. This is the most special set and mom treasures it. She needs to wear it more often. Well, what are you waiting for, mom??!!
