Repeal and Replace and a Big Dose of Reality

I feel despondent. Congress is determined to pass a bill that impacts health care availability. My health care availability. Oh, the impact to me won’t be so obvious. I have health insurance now through my current employer, and said employer is unlikely to discontinue health insurance coverage. I won’t be needing maternity care. I don’t … Continue reading

All Things Equal…

Hello. I am Hissy Fit Jones. As a cat who started life homeless, I have a certain affinity for my fellow cats and dogs who do not have a home where they are cared for and loved. Things are better for us animals than they used to be. Back in the day, 12-20 million of … Continue reading

How Zika Can Kill Your Cat

Bubba Cat here with a news flash: Zika is no joke!   Just yesterday a newspaper in Houston reported that 6 pregnant woman in the county have tested positive for the virus.   So what does the Centers for Disease Control recommend you do to protect yourself? Among other things, you should build a zika … Continue reading

So I Have This Idea…

I spent several days in Memphis. My current employer decided to send a contingency from the center of the state west to work on a project. So I spent three nights in the Crowne Plaze in downtown Memphis. By the way, it was OK, but I don’t recommend you stay there. It’s never a good … Continue reading

And When it Rains, it Pours…

Because just when you thought things could not possibly get any worse… Bubba is not doing so well.     Lately he’s taken to sleeping in the bathroom closet. This morning after he ate breakfast, Bubba jumped from the sink to a shelf in the bathroom closet and napped on the towels. I had field … Continue reading

On Death…. and on Living

I wonder what my death will be like… and when it will be. I’ve known my entire life that one day would be my last. But lately I’ve been … Continue reading

Rest in Peace June Buggie

My little ranter has died. Two weeks ago we were at the vet because he wasn’t eating. They drew blood from his jugular and felt nothing unusual in his neck. The blood work looked good. Last week we were back because he was worse. The tumor had grown rapidly, because now it could be felt. … Continue reading

Dear Rumpy…

Dear Rumpy, It’s hard to believe it ‘s been one month since you died. I am still not used to waking and not having to immediately go outside, or not needing to hurry home so you can pee. I don’t spend much time outside in the yard anymore. Last week I mowed the yard and saw the … Continue reading

June Buggie’s Latest Vet Visit

Today I took June Buggie back to the vet because he has not gotten any better. The vet found a tumor on his neck beneath his right ear. The tumor is huge- about the size of a golf ball. It’s not observable because it’s located deep. The vet said that she’s not sure if removal … Continue reading

Please Keep Buggie in Your Thoughts

June Buggie is not well. Since Rumpy’s death, June Buggie has been acting sick. At first I thought he was mourning, but he hasn’t snapped out of it. So today we went to the vet. I showed her his back where he fur fell out last week after I applied Revolution. I told her about … Continue reading
