Dear Daisy

Dear Daisy

On September 30, 2017, we adopted a new furry family member. Daisy was a 12-year old cat who was surrendered to Kitty Angels when her human passed away. Because our cat Firefly, whom we’ve had since she was a kitten, was 9-years old, we thought adopting an older cat would be best. We knew we … Continue reading


We never intended to have another cat. When we moved to California, my wonderful, compassionate, lovable Katchoo died. Sassy remained, and, over time, became a loving, huggable kitty too. But Sassy did not like other cats. We had a kitten, Giles, for four short months (he died of FIP). Sassy had hated Katchoo, and she … Continue reading

No Pets!

Note: I have decided to call the new town we’re moving to “Salem” after the town in which the soap opera Days of Our Lives takes place. I don’t watch DOOL anymore, but I’m still partial to it.  When we tell people that we’re moving to Salem, reactions vary, but the first question is always: … Continue reading

Family History: Pets

What pets have I had? Which one was my favorite?  My first pet was a German Shepherd we named Jenny. She ran away and apparently went to live with a neighbor around the block. I was under 5 at the time. My second pet was a chocolate lab that my baby-sitter (who also claimed to … Continue reading

A Good Night to Be a Mommy

Jack was ever-so-cute tonight. The really cute stuff is at the end, so if you’re pressed for time, I suggest to scroll to the play-like dialog stuff. I picked him up from school early so we could buy new shoes. In the car, every time we went under an overpass, he would cry “A tunnel! … Continue reading

Sassy Update, Week 7

(originally published on LiveJournal) This is Sassy: You may notice a few things: She’s eating! You can see her neck. Her neck doesn’t have a tube in it. Last Monday (the 22nd, I believe) Max was feeding Sassy when Sassy bolted, leaving the tube in Max’s hand. (No offense, sweetie, but I’m glad I wasn’t here. I … Continue reading

Sassy Update, Week 5

(originally published on LiveJournal) When I started to write this, at about 2:40pm, Sassy was grooming herself! She had been grooming her front paws, but she was actually making her way around the bandages to lick at a mat in her fur. (I have to cut that thing out.) She’s “eating” 1-1/2 cans of food per day, … Continue reading

Sassy Update, Post Vacation

(originally published on LiveJournal) For those of you who have been following the Sassy Saga, here’s the latest: My WONDERFUL neighbor Jeanine and her two teenage boys have been helping immensely. Jeanine would drive Sassy to the vet in the morning and bring her home at night. One night, the vet needed to keep her, … Continue reading

Sassy Update

(originally published on LiveJournal) If you are the praying type, could you please say a little one for my cat? The vet called and Sassy isn’t holding down her feedings. She can’t come home until she stops vomiting. Also, if she doesn’t stop vomiting, then she won’t get any better. She needs the food to … Continue reading

Interesting Evening

Jun. 23rd, 2008 at 10:46 PM So, I spent today being in a lot of pain from the stupid sunburn I got. I worked for about 3 hours, and am taking the other 5 as sick time.I tried to sit down and work tonight, but the doorbell rang. It was our neighbor to the right, … Continue reading
