Angel Phoebe was our nature lover. At the end of her life, we walked her on a harness and she loved it. I wish we had realized how badly she wanted to be outside sooner. This flashback is from September 2017 shortly before she left us.

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 156

Hi everyone! Thank you all for the purrs and prayers for Sammy.

Things did not go as planned. Sammy did not get his dental because the vet heard a “gallop” in his heartbeat. She didn’t hear it when he got his blood work 2 weeks ago. He will need an ultrasound of his heart before he can go under anesthesia. I am glad the vet chose to be cautious.

I still have no answers on the nose. She numbed it and tried to get a fluid sample, but there was no fluid. She couldn’t take a sample unless he was under anesthesia so that had to wait. She took an x-ray, but there “expert” needs to review it.

1. ______________ was a very good year.
 
2. There is nothing quite like _______________.
3. If I had a talk show, I would want to interview _________.
4. There is nothing I wouldn’t do for _________.
My answers:
1. 1992 was a very good year. That was the year we got married. I was thinking of other years when good things happened, but unfortunately bad ones did too in the same year.
2. There is nothing quite like sharing a bed with cats. It is wonderful in some ways like falling asleep to the sound of purrs, but then there is the scratches they accidentally give me and the pillow hogging. I can’t sleep without at least one though.
3. If I had a talk show, I would want to interview Nicolas Cage.
4. There is nothing I wouldn’t do for my immediate family and my cats.

2. By this time next year, I hope to still have all my loved ones ( 2-legged and 4-legged). I know this is not likely being that KaTwo has mammary cancer and Millie is shrinking away despite his big appetite and his thyroid meds.
3. One word that describes me is quirky I asked my mom what she thought and she said “weird”. I asked my hubby and he answered, compassionate. I like his answer.

For our flashbacks, I have some photos of Angel Phoebe on Cinco de Mayo. It was her favorite holiday. As many of you know, she had a cup on her pole and used to collect tips. On Cinco de Mayo her Grammie and her Dad each gave her $5.
And now to tell you about the logs with red spots that I showed you yesterday. My hubby and I are attempting to grow mushrooms, I purchased plugs that have the spores in them. You need to cute logs and let them sit for 2 weeks, then drill 20 holes in each log. You hammer the plugs into the holes and use cheese wax ( or beeswax) to coat them so no other organisms get in. You also have to coat the ends of the logs. In 6 months we should have Hen of the woods mushrooms. This is new to us, we have only grown the button mushroom kits indoors.
Be sure to come by tomorrow for our Star Wars giveaway for May the 4th.

 

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 154

Hi everyone! About the cat I was trying to rescue: Thank you to all who tried to help me with transportation. I got a call yesterday and was told a local home was found for him. It is better for him to stay local because he is afraid of people and it would be a long trip. I am thankful his life has been spared and he now has a forever home.

My answers:

2. I wish the word ma’am could be removed from the English language. I am not a fan of hashtag either- it is a freakin’ pound sign. 🙂
3.I’ll never outgrow stuffed animals, games and needing my mommy.
4. Being called ma’am makes me feel old.

 For my flashback, I have a photo of Trouble on her first day with us last year, April 21st.
Yes, I forgot her Gotcha Day. Poor kitty.  Happy Belated Gotcha Day Trouble!
The A-Z Blogging Challenge, we are up to the letter W. W is for water. I want to remind you if you give your cat tap water to be careful.I am lucky to have a well, but if I had water from town, I would purchase bottled water for us and the cats. A lot of times there is rust in local water from cleaning fire hydrants, there is also a lot of chemicals to keep it free of bacteria.
This week is also the Pet Photo Fails Blog Hop hosted by Melissa’s Mochas, Mysteries and Meows in memory of Roby Sweet. Joanie wasn’t looking at me and Sammy’s eyes are lasers.

The A-Z Blogging Challenge, we are up to the letter K. Kidney disease is sadly one of the main killers of kitties. I hope you never need this website, but if your cat is ever diagnosed with kidney disease, I highly recommend Tanya’s Comprehensive Guide to Feline Chronic Kidney Disease. It covers everything you need to know about kidney disease from diet, medicine and so much more. Click Here.
