A New Role for Hissy Fit Jones

Hissy Fit Jones is struggling to find his new role in the family. He was always the outlier. The instigator. The “I like you, but not that much,” kinda guy. Now he is finding the annoying little brother role is no longer working for him. To be sure, he still bugs the piss out of … Continue reading

It’s Rumpy’s Birthday Month But I’m Not Celebrating

This morning I woke the same way I have for the past few days: clutching one of Rumpy’s old stuffed toys. October is Rumpy’s Gotcha month. He’s been gone for 6 months, but the hurt is as acute as the day he died. In some ways things have improved. Now that I no longer care … Continue reading

Life Goes On…

Bubba is home. He had stopped eating and was back to hiding in the bathroom closet sleeping all day. He was in a lot of pain. My sweet boy. I have taken his death particularly hard. Or maybe it’s the grieving the loss of four companions within the past 16 months. I feel incredibly guilty, and … Continue reading

Another Vet Visit for Bubba

Bubba and I visited the vet. His thyroid levels are good, but he hasn’t gained any more weight. He does look a lot better. The lesion in his mouth has healed. But there is swelling. So what does that mean? Well, we’re not sure. The vet is concerned. When she removed those teeth, he had … Continue reading

The Bubba Saga Continues…

A Tale of Two Doctors

Bubba wasn’t eating. Again. So this morning I loaded him up and back to the vet we go.   Dr. M. looked him over, then checked his teeth. Yes, he had a bad one. So she did a blood panel to make sure he was OK for surgery, then I left him there for her … 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
