Serious News.

Okay everyone, I’m going to cut the cat stuff for this post, because this is serious.

Padme (Jailbirdcat) got sick 2 days ago. She wouldn’t eat her wet food, and she had gotten so frail and fragile. She couldn’t purr when she was petted, and she barely realized when I picked her up. She just weakly put her arm around me and tucked her head under my chin. There was no light in her eyes when she saw me.

I took my fluffy robe that she loves into my room and rolled it into a ball, then put a towel down on it. I took her back to my room and covered her in a blanket. She stayed there all night just resting, then when I finally got into bed to sleep, she weakly meowed and crawled over and tried to lay on me like she normally does. Then in the morning she woke me up meowing, almost howling like she was in pain. So I jumped up and took her out to the living room. She started to not be able to control her bodily functions. She stopped, and I cleaned her up and took her back to bed.


That day she just laid and shivered. I sat with her and finally she reached out her paw wanting me to hold her hand. So we laid and I held her hand. Everyonce in a while she would start meowing because she felt like she needed to use the bathroom, but she was so dehydrated that it hurt. She got progressively worse. She stood up and crawled onto my chest. I cuddled her and she tried to purr.

We decided that we were going to call the vet and see if they would let us come in even though they were closed. She was suffering too much. She wouldn’t eat, she wouldn’t drink and she was having problems with her bathroom needs. It was time.

Dad got home, and he came back about 8:05 ish. Padme started howling in pain, just laying on my lap. Dad put his hand on her stomach to help her, and she started drifting away. Finally at 8:11 PM, June 30th 2015,she passed.

She was my best friend. She was with me when I was ill, suffering with EDS. Not being able to get out of bed; She was there. She helped me get better. She was my therapy cat, I guess you could say. Everytime I would walk in the room her eyes would light up and she would meow and meow until I paid attention to her. She was my cat and I was her human. When I would come home, she would run as fast as she could (Knocking everything over) to the door to greet me. I would pick her up and we would have a conversation. It would go something like this; “Meow. Hi. Meow. Hello. Meow. How are you baby? Meow. Really?? Meow. No way. Meow. I love you baby. Meow.”

Even though I don’t have friends, I was okay because she was my best friend. In a way no human could ever be. I was never lonely when she was there. I don’t know what to do now that she is gone. But I know that I want to keep this blog running. Jailbirdcat will still be here. Will it be about our new cat that we rescued? Will Padme still run the household?Will it be about The Demon from Padme’s point of view? Or will it be from Mallie’s point of view? You’ll only know if you stay and find out.

I’m sure Padme has unlimited spy gadgets and an invisibility cloak in heaven.


With Love,

The Girl

Hello Mortals,

I have an adventure for you peasants.

So the Witch and Ogre were gone, so obviously I got to rule the household. I allowed The Girl to reside in my kingdom.

There were some good times and bad times – well, bad times for The Girl, I’m impartial. Like, 1 down 1 to go, if ya know what I meannn…  We’ll start with the bad (*cough cough* impartial) news.

The Girl came home to find that Very Un-God Like had passed away.

Insert The Girl’s comment here;

“Yes, unfortunately Neera is gone, but we were all very ready knowing she could go anytime.  It still is very sad, but she’s happier up in Heaven.”

Every good story has an end.

Sunday, September 2, 2012 my family learned that my great grandmother passed away unexpectedly in her sleep. Wednesday we had her funeral. She had a full, good life. She will be missed, but we understand that it was her time. And that she is now in Heaven, her pains gone, and walking with the Lord.

Then, after midnight on the 5th we got a phone call saying that my great grandfather went into cardiac arrest. Someone heard him weezing, and was grabbing the inhaler to give him a treatment, and he took one last gasp and fell down. The same person caught him mid fall, called 911, and started CPR. When the EMT’s got their and took over the CPR, they revived him enough to get him to the hospital.

Unfortunately, there wasn’t much to work with, brain wise. Saturday, September 22, 2012 at 1:47 PM, he passed after 11 days of being  taken off the respirator.

Thursday (9/27/12) we had his funeral. He was a veteran, fought many wars, He was a hero. The casket had an American flag draped over it. And there was a 21 gun salute. We each (the family) got a shell of the blanks they fired off. When he was still in the hospital, they had a pinning ceremony, which is when they pin on the pins that he earned in battle.

We each learned a lot from that funeral. Things we never will forget. But I think we all learned something in particular. We learned just how strong love can be.

Thank you all for the prayers.

Today they removed the tube that went into her lung, and after a 4 hour period of supervision, she might be able to come home!

Thanks to everyone who are praying for her!

Ever humbled by God


(The girl here)

Going away from my…I mean Padme’s posts, I’ve got a serious note for you.

One of my dear friends was in a car crash this morning on the way to church. She went off the right side of the road and totaled her car. She is suffering a broken sternum, and she has a bubble in her lung that they operated on this morning to try and get out. She is a very good driver, so as you could see, this kind of happenstance would never even cross my mind. They are keeping her in the hospital for a few days just to keep an eye on her. They are concerned because when you suffer upper body injury’s, well, it’s close to your heart and other vital organs.

I would appreciate if you would pray for her and her family. They need all the prayers they can get! She has a lot to be thankful for, even in this time. God never fails to provide an…er…”exciting” life for us. Every time sometime something like this happens, it always ponders me. It could’ve been you. It could’ve been me. “What did I do to deserve this?” “Why me, God?” – All questions that jump through our minds from time to time. I know for myself, I deal with these thoughts every day. EDS does a number on you. I try my best to push them out of my mind. Tell myself “That’s not fair to me, God or anyone”. He has made a path for me.  Despite my feelings, He does whats best for me. Even when I don’t agree.

Things do happen. Yes, it’s unfair. Yes, it sucks! But it makes you strong. The things that happened yesterday, make you who you are today. So please, please pray for her! She is at a fragile time. She needs to get away from this. She needs to move on from this suffering. But she can’t do it alone. God is guiding her, but she needs the person beside her to take her hand and stand with her. Lead her through the dark. Tell her “It’s OK. I’ll be with you all the way”. She needs her brothers and sisters in Christ to put their arm her and hold her hand.

Everytime we walk away from a tragedy and think everything’s OK, we are humbled by God. Again.

So please pray for her and that she has a speedy recovery!

Thank you all,

-The girl

My “inmates”

Leave a comment

This is a look inside our family’s “Inmates”

This is our dog, Sasha. (Padme: “Worthless”)

(Emily here, or, as you might know me “The girl”):

My family took Sasha in when our elderly neighbor had to go to the hospital.

She was admitted to stay in the hospital later in the week.

After spending several days in the hospital, they decided to put her in a Retirement home.

After a while she passed through the pearly gates of Heaven.

The vet called us and asked if we wanted the vet to take Sasha in.

We said no.

We are now the proud owner of the most wonderful dog in the world ❤


Our other cat, Neera. (Padme: “Un-God Like”)

This Neera, she is the only pet we actually “bought”. The others we rescued.

We bought Neera in a pet shop in 2000. I (Emily) was just a little 1 year old.

She’s our, uh, special cat… there is really nothing to say about her…

Um…She falls off the refrigerator?

Simon – “I don’t want to play in the leaves”

Then there is Simon.

He was a pug. He has also passed.

He was the runt of the litter, and he was born with a broken back.

Even when he was young he had a hard time walking, but in his last few years he could barely move.

We had to do the hardest thing that a pet owner and an animal lover would have to do.

We had to put him to sleep.

He has left this world, but he will never leave our hearts.

Rest in peace, little guy ❤
