cats

nicole is going to work one on one with little miss sunshine to see if she can help her get over her hump. trina managed to get her to lick her food off a spoon yesterday (i am rolling my eyes) maybe i have missed something here, like the silver spoon in her mouth thing that i was supposed to notice.

the americats enjoyed the party yesterday, especially because zoe the vegetarian put her own personal preferences aside and brought everyone roast chicken. that must have been tough zoe, but the animals are very grateful. sanjaya and merlin had their 2nd and last dose of zithromax. it will be interesting to see if this finally kicks the URI out of their systems. fingers crossed here. when i checked them all at bedtime, they were all asking for more chicken..sorry guys, all gone.

our little missy is fading away before our eyes, at 19 yrs of age, i guess she is allowed to. but she truly is one of the sweetest and nicest cats that i have ever met, she is still eating but i think she won’t be with us for too much longer.

monty, is just one huge shiny ton of happy healthy cat. he spent the night sleeping on me last night and at first i thought it was one of the dogs because he was so heavy and solid. i find it hard to believe that cat has FIV.

hook (my cat) is getting frailer too. i have no idea how old he is except to know that he is ancient. he sleeps of my lap with 2 little poodles. he can always find an inch or two that he can squeeze himself into.

my sweet and lovely julie, plays a special game every morning as soon as i open my eyes. she wants my hands touching her and she goes looking for them to rub her drooly face on. some times i trick her and bend my arms right back so all she can find is my elbows and then she can’t figure out where my hands went. this perplexes her and she starts to paw at my face to bring them back again…i always do so she always wins and she likes that alot!

sigh, enough of cat time, i better get off to work!

    What a wonderful description of your treasured cats. I especially loved the game you play with Julie – too funny! I can almost see your arms turn inside out trying to tease her! Here is a thought for you that I received today and is soooooooo true:

    Remember, if a dog was the teacher you would learn things like:

    When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.

    Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.

    Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure
    ecstasy.

    Take naps.

    Stretch before rising.

    Run, romp, and play daily.

    Thrive on attention and let people touch you.

    Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.

    On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.

    On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.

    When you’re happy, dance around and wag your entire body.

    Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.

    Be loyal.

    Never pretend to be something you’re not.

    If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.

    When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by and nuzzle
    them gently.

    My grandson is here for the weekend and he invited in a stray dog into our home this evening. His heart went out to this big girl who was running back and forth in front of our house, cold, hungry and thirsty. We are expecting a big storm tonight so perhaps that is what her anxiety was about. She is a BIG dog but what a sweety! Tomorrow I will try and find her owner via the Shelter but for tonight she is in a warm and loving home with a belly full of food and lots and lots of water! When I opened the door to let her outside she refused so I think she kind of likes it here 🙂 Take care Carol and keep up the wonderful work.
