Flea products and adverse neurologic events

I used to put flea products on both Tyler and Trinity because I was told I should to prevent heartworm. Tyler didn’t like it but Trinity acted like you’d put something horrible on her. She hated it and acted weird for up to an hour or more afterwards.

I probably used it for no more than a year before deciding the potential of them getting heartworm being indoor-only cats versus the problems she had with it outweighed the benefits and quit. I wish I’d never put the first dose on my cats!

It was years later before she had her seizures and several years after we’d seen her last seizures before she passed away unexpectedly after a clean annual checkup.

They suspected a heart or brain problem for her death and today I read this.

Trinity, Tyler and Skeamer in silhouette

Back on March 2nd when Trinity’s death shocked us to the core I knew I wanted a metal silhouette like we had for Skeaemer- Kind of like a custom headstone. I wanted to post this earlier but my head and migraine have taken a trip down memory lane and my head has been horrible for the last few weeks. I just couldn’t completely get rid of my migraine and it wave over me from horrible, to bad, to let me try to get something done, then repeat.

Mother’s Day when your children have fur

P1120728-Edit-sm

I am lucky to blessed to have a mom that always encouraged me in my endeavors – except maybe my early teen years – she probably wanted to send me away for those. Actually both my parents supported me but my dad passed away when I was 32. I loved my mom’s mom too. Grandma was a special lady and I wish I would’ve spent more time asking her about her heritage and past when she was still with us. Continue reading

Balance, Symmetry, the forgotten pics topped off with a challenge

P1360713-sm

I had all sorts of ideas for CCoH monthly critique theme of balance and symmetry for April. I was going to do a thumbprint. I talked to my best friend about asking her teenage twins if they’d let me photograph them which is totally outside my area. I had it in mind when I went with a friend to shoot at Biltmore. I took one of Tyler with his “broken leg” pose,  a set up a marble shot, then I let the deadline go by without entering anything.

I didn’t want to go see what new naming rules the club made and change my Lightroom export profile settings. I didn’t really want the pictures of Tyler critiqued because I just couldn’t take the critiquer saying anything negative about my boy right now – no matter how constructive. Plus I just didn’t really want to share something so personal and close to my heart just yet even if I originally shot some for this theme.

What I’m reading for February and March 2018, plus a photo finalist pic

 

I just wanted to be home for all of March from grieving over the unexpected loss of our beloved Trinity and recovering from should surgery. I spent more time reading but as much as I wanted to really kick back and read, with my attention level after surgery I found it easier to binge watch Netflix. Now if Netflix would’ve just really sent me the DVD’s in the order they were in my list instead of skipping to a season we hadn’t gotten to yet that would’ve been even better. I wanted to try Audible but just never got around to figuring it out. I was content to zone out, watch TV with my hubby and love on Tyler.
