Im glad you dont have to go out in the storm. I was watching the weather channel last night and they all seemed nervous. This has been one nasty cold winter.Ive lived here all my life and we dont get used to it. Let me know how you make out in the storm. I havent seen Sparky in over four weeks. I hope hes eating closer to his warm spot. We did have a brutally cold two weeks last month. Someone is eating when I put the food and water out at 6:00pm. I think its the kitty I call Happy cat. I know hes not happy. If i open the door or even look out the window he runs. I havent seen the deer in the field behind me all winter. Hopefully all wildlife survived and I will see Sparky when its warms up.
I guess it's no great surprise that Mike wasn't doing what the doctors wanted...and that there's been a price to be paid for that. I hope they're able to get him patched up despite his activities. Becky came through her surgery just fine and has totally healed. You'd never know she had the surgery at all other than her long whiskers haven't come back fully yet. That's all behind her now and she's doing great. The folks are hanging in there pretty well. Knock wood...but it seems like we should be able to do the big trip in September. Something could come up between now and then but all indications are that they'll be good to go. We've had fun doing a bit of planning each week when I see them. In reality, I pretty much have it all planned out. It won't take long to do the rest of it and there's time still. Since we're going right after Labor Day there's less of a crush or need for reservations. I'll still do that, though. Other than fatigue coming easily, how are you holding up? It sounds like the kittehs are a real joy though I suspect there are some Roxie stories. It's good to hear from you.
We did a quiet Christmas and also went out to eat. We didnt want to cook. Fridays blizzard was nasty. Daughter took me to work and home again. Two days of warms and snow is almost gone. Never know if it goes quick or stays tll spring. I watch the Weather Channel and the snow looks pretty. People that dont have to deal with it have no idea. The driving, shoveling, rocksalting, trying to find a parking space thats not a big drift, hope the power doesnt go out, shoveling in freezy temps with lots of wind feels like needles on the face, etc. Track the rocksalt in the house is not good for carpets or pets. Why do I stay. Its home. I probably will move when I retire.For now its shovels, scrapers, waterproof gloves and deicer. (dont forget the bread, milk and batteries).
Oh what a sweet story about Roxie. They do know when youre ot feeling well. They are very sensitive to hoomin feeling. One of mine, Lucy LuLu has her little "Harry Canary" a very bedraggled, sewn together many times, little yellow fuzzy toy. And she will carry it in her mouth sometimes and make those funny little meowing sounds. Sometimes she will drop it at my feet. We find Harry all over the house :)
