Spider Web Hurricane and an Award!

Just got back from Montana yesterday. It wasn't the day I thought it would be to just come home and relax. Instead, I got home and found my cat in an asthma attack (the house sitter said she wasn't like this earlier so it must have just come on before I came home) and I had to rush her to the emergency vet. *sigh* We just discovered she had asthma about three weeks ago (another vet emergency visit). After taking x-rays to determine that she had this condition (and she's only a year old) they treated her with a steroid shot. I hated that but I had to do what was best for her. This time they sent me home with an inhaler. YES, an inhaler. I didn't even know animals could have asthma. I'm meeting with a naturopath at my regular vet to see how we can treat her naturally. In any event, I'm finally winding down from everything tonight. :)

So, to wind down and to continue the October blog party hosted by the Domestic Witch I thought I'd make a very haunted Martha Stewart craft. It was so easy too! The spidery hurricane! You can find her directions here! I couldn't find a frosted hurricane but the clear works just fine!

Also! As promised, I won an award!! Thank you, Marzel my very good friend (and in real life) over at Play of Light and Shadow. :) Thank you, Marzel!! You're awesome! I also received this award from Suzie over at Cat in the Moon (she has the cutest blog!). Thank you, Suzie! Oh gosh....and I wanna say someone else awarded this to me but can't remember. SO SORRY!!

  1. Oh my, not a very good homecoming. I never knew an animal could have asthma. I couldn't imagine trying to get one of our cats to use an inhaler. Yikes!
    I love that spidery candle holder, I just may try that!
    Glad you had a nice trip!

  2. Hope your kitty is feeling better soon. Glad you have an open minded vet. I will have to give the spiderweb candle holder a try. My daughter and I, made nutter butter ghost this weekend -totally fun. I will post my answers to the questions on my blog at maesmenagerie.

  3. Oh no so sorry to hear about your cat...The candle is adorable Martha's crafts are addictive!

  4. how exactly do you give an inhaler to a cat? I mean, they're not going to inhale when they're supposed to. LOL

    I LOVE that candle holder you made! I need to make one...but I am sooooo not crafty. Not even a little. Nevertheless, I will give it the old college try. :D

    Congratulations on your awards!


  5. Your poor fabulous feline!!! They are like family! Love the spider web craft....and ADORE this blog!!! Welcome home!!!

  6. My Salem has asthma as well...keep in mind things like those "plug ins", air fresheners, even some clumping litters can aggravate it...i cant even spray febreze pet spray near him...but I have him on a very lo dose of prednisone...we started him high and weaned him down to only 1/2 ml in the evening...we tried to get him off of it but he starts all over. It is also possible to give your kitty treatments (if you check online there are actually schematics for building a kitty asthma treatment chamber out of rubbermaid containers) Its a scary lucky i work for a vet so i can keep him well far so good no side effects at all from the pred.......GOOD LUCK TO YOU...and love the spiderweb candleholder!
