Cat Photos… Just Because

Thought I’d share some recent photos of the gang to make you smile. Well, they made me smile and I just assumed they would you too. Graybie continues to demand attention, usually when I’m busy doing other things. But he will be obeyed. Hissy is….. well, is Hissy. Nothing really changed there. This is MY … Continue reading

A Natural Flea/Tick Product that Works!

This is Homer. Homer showed up one day at my mom’s house with a hurt leg. She doctored him up and he’s been with her ever since. That’s been well over 10 years now. Homer prefers being outdoors, which means fleas are always a concern. When I was contacted and asked if I’d like to … Continue reading

Talking About Retail…

I have made the decision that it’s time to move on. To be clear, I miss Rumpy, Buggie and Bubba dearly, and I will for a long time to come. But they are no longer here. Graybie, Hissy, Yella and Little Girl are. As am I, and our lives go on. I best get in … Continue reading

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…

The Bubba Saga continues. Taking care of Bubba is a full-time job. Fortunately I have been doing a lot of working from home lately so I could be here to take care of him. There was a flea issue. I had applied Revolution to each cat. But the vet found fleas on Bubba two weeks … Continue reading

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
