Hi Sylvia, I sure hope I don't come across as 'uncaring'... I know it's been awhile, but I have had a family member going through the same thing as you. I am so sorry you are dealing with such a horrible disease, it's just not fair. Just want you to know that I truly care, and I hope the road ahead is a smooth one for you. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Big Hugs, Mary Jo
Our Roxie likes to race into our coat closet every time someone opens the door. One time we didn't notice it and went to lunch or somewhere. She was stuck in there for about 2 hours! Did she learn her lesson? NO!! She still races in there whenever anybody opens the door!!
Do you have to do a kitty count each time you leave the house, just in case one gets in a closet or somewhere? We have to do that with our two. Drives us nuts sometimes. One will be sleeping under the couch or bed and won't come out!
You wouldn't BELIEVE how busy I've been! Weekend before last I had 8-9 jobs a day! Then it was 5-6 directly after that. People don't realize how often a pet sitter has to bend over, (feeding pets, cleaning litter boxes) and going up and down stairs to CLEAN litter boxes, since they are pretty much all located in basements! The pay sure was nice though!
Hi Sylvia! Thanks for the message. I've been super busy with my job. Next week I have 2 days with 10 jobs per day!!!!! I'm going to be one tired cookie!! Thanks for the belated birthday wishes... I don't get on here like I used to either. Too busy with RL!! So nice hearing from you!! Hope all is well! (I had bronchitis, then back problem... ugh!! Much better now!)
Well, I'm not a big fan, but hubby keeps me informed. Feel sorry for Aaron Rogers... Guess he is an asset to the team, and he has that ankle injury. About movies, we also saw Unbreakable recently too. Good one. Very sad at times, but not as intense as Am. Sniper.
Packers lost, and we're disappointed here! Remember, we are from Wisconsin! Yes, we had a good day. Went to a movie.... American Sniper.... was a bit too much for me. Then we went to Outback Steakhouse to eat. Yummy!! Still cold here, but not like before. I think it got to 38 or something like that. How is it where YOU live? Thanks for the congrats BTW.... :-)
No, had pet sitting directly after Christmas, but none during that time. I charge double on Christmas Eve, and don't work Christmas day, so I think people change their schedules around. That's fine with me! Right now there is nothing, but it's so cold out there!! It's 18 degrees right now, a real heat wave!! We were getting 6 below zero here. The schools even closed one day, due to the wind and cold.
Hi, thanks for the message, glad you found a good place to take your kitty. I'm feeling a little sad right now... One of my clients who I've had from the very beginning, 9 years ago, will be putting her cat to sleep on Tuesday. I am heartbroken, but that is the big DISadvantage to my job. For many years I took care of this woman's cats while she and her hubby went to their cottage. So for a long time I was caring for them about every other weekend, and on long vacations. Now this weekend I will have that kitty for the very last time. She has another, but this one is special. I will miss her terribly.
That is odd that your cat is on Diabetic food. In my experience, a cat that IS diabetic has to go on that food, needs insulin, or both, but most start out as heavy cats. Does she drink a lot of water, and leave a lot of urine in her box? That is the first sign of diabetes. Glad you had her checked out. Pet sitting has been a bit slow for me, but is picking up starting tomorrow. I was super busy at the beginning of the year. I think people decided to go on vacations early, since our winter was so long. Gave me a summer break, but then there is no money coming in!! But it will pick up. Your kitty resort sounds nice. Do they have a website? I'd love to check it out. Have fun on your vacation. Going someplace fun?
Have you ever seen the movie 'How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days?' The song You're So Vain was a big part of that movie. I think that was a Carly Simon song, right? I think I've seen that MOVIE 10 times! One of my favorites. Glad you liked my LOL.
I guess I am curious where Foxcat lives, considering I am only about 10 minutes from the WI/IL border! I know she lives in Illinois. I was surprised to hear you have a cat that eats like mine!! My Roxie doesn't care for dry food, so she has to have her wet food about every 2-3 hours. If I try to give her more than about a tablespoon, she won't eat it all. But every 2-3 hours, she circles around my legs, and won't give up till I feed her. They sure have us trained, don't they?
