Healing Energy Coming Right Up!

  A couple of days ago, two young women walked by me. They were chatting amiably and laughing, as good friends do. Suddenly I felt a rush of energy pass right through me. I smiled. It felt so good. In these days where there is such anger and animosity, it’s refreshing to see people who are happy. … Continue reading

Pet Guardianship: Not All Peaches and Cream

Mommy bloggers want us all to believe that parenting is 24/7 joy and fun. Sadly, so do many pet bloggers. I’m not one of them.  To be honest, some days caring for a fur kid really sucks. Right now I am fuming because I have worked so hard to get the cats upstairs. I have … Continue reading

All Things Cat

Cats are in the news this weekend.  First, Bubba Cat had his turn at the vet, and his bloodwork results were upsetting. He, too, has hyperthyroidism. To be honest, I hadn’t considered hyperthyroidism with Bubba because he hasn’t been as ravenous as Junior was when first diagnosed. But he does show other symptoms, such as weight … Continue reading

I Watched the Debate. I Saw Myself.

I watched the presidential debate. And I am still hurt by what I heard and saw. To be clear, this entire campaign has been painful to watch. The racism, xenophobia, and sexism demonstrated by a candidate for president of the United States has been unreal, and the fact that people support such a candidate, including … Continue reading

Cat Stuff

We have a new vet! I’m happy to have found a vet clinic that meets the needs of my family. They’re friendly, caring folks and knowledgeable. I am relieved. This past Saturday June Buggie gave them a try. He had an annual exam and vaccinations to include blood work to test his thyroid level. He … Continue reading

June Buggie and Me: #PurrfectTogether

(This post is sponsored by Meow Mix Bistros)   June Buggie is not an easy cat to love. In that respect, we are perfect for each other. We are both rather crotchety as we age together. Junior (that’s his given name) and Bubba came to live with me around 15 years ago after a co-worker … Continue reading

The Impact of 9-11 15 Years Later

Fifteen years ago today three co-workers and I were travelling to tour a correctional facility and meet with administrative staff. We didn’t have the radio on during the drive, so we had no idea what had happened until we arrived at the complex. On the way home we silently listened to the radio to learn all … Continue reading

If you’re interested in American History, I highly recommend signing up. This week’s show talks about the work ethic in America. … Continue reading

The Neverending War on Homeless Cats

This week Gwen sent out an email to her readers alerting us to a book being hawked … Continue reading
