Well, we had planned on trying to sell our house for a while, so we hadn't gotten any new cats since our Misty died last year(it's easier to sell a house without pets). But then my wife got laid off so we put the house hunting on hold. Since we weren't worried about selling any more we went over to the shelter and they had these sweet little love bugs available. They were thrilled we took all three. :)
Ooh, your MIL is a sneaky one, isn't she? I am SO glad they called you and you were able to weigh in on the choice of an older cat. It sounds like this one might even work out. I hope so! We've had a few storms but nothing like they've been getting up north of us. Whew! The eastern half of the country is drowning and the western half is burning up again. I hope your 90's don't last long! Bleh
HEEEYYYYYY!!!!!! Welcome back!!! :-D Glad you had a great time!! And thanks for the food :-D Yep! Plumbing got fixed, and had (you're not going to believe this) NO parties the last couple of weeks :-P I miss the cake that goes with these events :-D If you feel up to it later (settle in first and relax a bit) tell me how your trip was, and what you did?! How was it at the animal selter you helped out? Unpack and unwind sweetheart!!! TTYL :-D Sending you a chardonnay to help relax.
Looks like you had quite the adventure! Glad you're home safe and thanks SO much for reading the sequel!! It really means a lot and I am happy to hear that you liked it! My HS reunion was very good. Not as good as it could have been, though. We went cheap and just joined the annual alumni banquet for all classes of my school. Hundreds there, but only about 24 from my class. We then went to a bar for visiting, but it was too hot, crowded and loud, so we went to another bar that was cooler, bigger and quieter. I wear hearing aids, so visiting was still difficult, as it's hard to zero in on who I'm trying to listen to when there's a lot of noise all around. Still, nice to see the "kids" again. Funny thing -- two of my brothers live up there and they followed me from bar to bar, making it look like I had chaperones. Maybe I needed them, tho -- I never drink and I had two that night. Had to drink a 7-up for quite a while before I felt I could drive!
Hey there Syl!! Welcome back!!! Did you have a lovely vacation?! Bailey is the new light of our lives!! He didn't want to eat this morning though and seemed listless and I inwardly panicked because I couldn't bear to lose another precious kitty! Anyhoo before I got on line and let everyone know I was panicking...he coughed up and hairball and I believe he is going to make it. ;) silly me! I have been looking for just the right kind of 'therapy cat' for my daughter. We have the right guy. Bailey is 5 and while everything isn't instantly all better, we are making some teeny steps to wellness. He gravitated toward her from the first day and spends almost every waking moment by her side. I do the care and feeding etc though she has taken an interest in brushing him which,like petting, is very healing. Animal petting....to be clear. ;) The first night l checked on her in the wee hours and there was Bailey laying alongside her while she pet him, in her sleep.Today he felt she was in the washroom too long so he stuck his pudgy paw under the door and pulled it open and laid in the doorway. It's like he's watching her...caring for her? He makes her laugh too which his OSSUM!! He's really great and just the tonic we both needed. You can only have empty arms for so long! He's a big huggable boy!!
