He still runs and plays even if he pays for it later in the day when he overdoes it. He is still the neediest velcro cat we’ve ever adopted and I couldn’t love him any more than I do. He’s got us both wrapped around his big ole paws. His hearing has declined a LOT, and he got a “horny nail” thing but other than those nothing has really changed drastically. His nerves have eased up on the gabapentin and he still eats and drinks normally and his coat is still shiny and kept as well as he’s always kept it.
So thankful to have shared these years as his cat mom. I truly wish his sister had lived longer!
Yes, he got his favorite treats for his photo session.

I thought maybe if I came home and typed I’d be distracted more than sitting in my car in the (absurdly tight) parking lot, but I told them I could be back quickly. I hate him being put under for a dental but the boy doesn’t have good teeth. I also liked it better when this was one visit. One time withholding food, and an actual visit where you talked to the vet, the bloodwork was checked and he had his physical and if everything was okay they did the dental instead of having to space it out and go thru it twice. With his heart murmur and age, I’m wondering if this is the last time the benefits will outweigh the risk?
Some of my family surprised us that they were in town. All of us went on a waterfall hike then my mom took us out for an early birthday lunch at PF Changs and dessert at Cold Slab.
We keep hitting delays on materials for the house. Delays in quotes, delays in shipping delays with delivery, and weather delays. So, I just keep sweeping the water off the slabs. Our concrete guy that took 2 of our shovels and didn’t offer to bring them back, should’ve told us he needed grade pegs! If I took someone’s tools by mistake I would’ve brought them right back with an apology.
Wow, how time flies when you’re working six days a week and exhausted. Kinda gave new meaning to Sunday being a day of rest because all I wanted to do after church… was sleep!
A few updates since my only (non-recall) post this year except for Tyler’s birthday. I’ll try to get back into a post here and there besides just putting up pet food recalls. I see I started one from last August that I never put up. Maybe I’ll do a flashback and post it too. Who knows. The best-laid plans and all.
You Had Me at Meow my little paperback I was motivated to write because of Trinity has been out 6 years today.
Happy 14th to my sweet Tyler. It’s all of our last birthdays in this house. I put a grave marker out today at his sister’s grave. I hope whoever buys our home is respectful of that. That truly is the hardest thing for me when we move from home to home. Okay, enough with the tears. It’s a happy day that Tyler is celebrating turning 14 🙂 Now if his mom could just dry it up and go back to trying to get moved the minute we get cable at the new house. I’ve already taken Tyler to see it. He was not thrilled with it even with some of his toys there already. When we do move I have a quiet day for us planned to let him explore and get used to another home before I get to all the boxes. Both homes look like a tornado went through. Hopefully I’ll be able to do something besides working long days 6 days a week. I don’t even feel like getting my camera out. I just want to cuddle Tyler, sleep and relax with my hubby.

So for this cat day, my boy refused to eat his breakfast until I put freeze-dried turkey sprinkles on. Yesterday he thought the other part of the same can, was so great he licked the bowl clean. Continue reading →
It has been two years since we lost our sweet Trinity. I still can not quit replaying that day in my mind. I would’ve hoped it would have gotten easier to remember just the good things. With all deaths, I’ve had a list of “should’ve, would’ve, could’ve” but not like her unexpected death. I won’t rehash what I’ve already said. I’ll just try to cherish each day I have with those I love and not constantly think that it may be the last time. Kinda weird you hardly ever never know when “the last time” is. Continue reading →

I saw a photo in Our State magazine of a river bend of the French Broad River.
I wanted to photograph it.
5 hours and probably 5 “u” shaped bends being found on GPS, we found the bend.
It’s on private property and no one called me back. Continue reading →
