I'm glad you didn't have a lot of ice and hope the snow was light and wasn't a big problem getting through. I understand what you mean by "it's not winter yet." When winter does hit, you will have major icing and deep snow. We had a lot of rain today but were safely above the freezing mark and didn't have to worry about anything freezing. I wish we all could skip winter and go right to spring. Have a good evening.
I'm very sorry about Sparky. That doesn't sound good at all that he has been away a week since he has been so regular before. However, he may still return and be okay. I do hope so. I know it worries one to have an outside cat disappear like that and have no clue as to where the cat may be or what has happened. We had ice mostly in the trees with some of the roads in the western part of the county with icy patches on the them. We had a two hour delay in opening, and all was well. We now have all rain too and no freezing tonight. I hope things won't be too bad for you in the morning. Be careful.
I know that "one more day" temptation. If I'm not sure, I consult my vet. He is more objective and if he says it's time, I know it is. I'm glad you've been missed by the frozen weather. I hope that will continue for a while. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Brenda
It is good to hear from you, was wondering where you have been for so long. Is the Kings Mountain you are thinking of moving to in North Carolina or Tennessee? Either one would sure be a big change from where you are now. It was 76 here today..unreal for Dec., I want to see a little snow..not much but just a little. My kitties and myself are doing pretty well so far. Don't stay gone so long next time! Hugs, Millie
Thanks, Sandy. I know we did the right thing, but it's never easy to make that decision. I hope all is well with you. Guess you may get some snow from the coming storm. I hope it won't be much. Hugs, Brenda
Hi Sandy! Haven't heard back from you since a month ago. That worries me & i sure hope you're okay. Seems like both of us are going to have a storm, but i know mine will be nothing like up north. My legs started giving me problems again. This definitely seems unlike the knee problem. The Dr. thinks it is coming from my back & I have an MRI scheduled for next week & then on to the ortho. Millie & Roxie have pretty much made peace. They got into a squabble yesterday & I was surprised as they hadn't done that in such a long time. Sometimes they chase each other back & forth & it tickles me as Millie hasn't had anything real physical. Roxie is 'supposed' to be a 'young adult". but she acts her age (1 - 2 yrs.) & into everything. She has given much fun, smiles & happiness to both of us. Again, hope you're okay! Write when you can! Hugs~Deb
A cone for KNEE surgery?!! Now I've heard it all! No, Roxie didn't have to wear one either. The only problem I had with her was giving her the anti-biotics. I finally figured out the trick when only 3 days left. She had the surgery in early Sept. before my knee got so bad so I'm just catching things up, but have a lot more in between to tell. I hope people don't tire of hearing my stories of her. I've done nothing about my leg except x-rays about 4 yrs. ago, but have to use a cane all the time & a walker sometimes. I can handle it like this, but not like how it was. I don't have stairs & I'm sure there's a few people who would take me to therapy & groceries. Heavens knows I've done it for them a bunch in the past 3 yrs. But I would do it for them anyway. Two of my friends are getting home care now, I just thought knee surgery would be too big a deal for that. You made me feel a LOT better, Sandy. Aih tanx yew bewwy, bewwy much!
Hi Sandy! Boy, where has the summer gone? I'm just not ready for winter yet. Never got a flip-flop tan--boy, I've got it rough, huh? How are your babies? How is your hip? Thankfully, my knee pain has subsided somewhat during the past month. Have no idea why it did, but hope it will stay this way. You may know more about this, but I heard that if you live alone with no one to help you or to take you to therapy, that you have to stay in rehab (same as nursing home) for up to 4 weeks. I just can't do that to my babies. Poor Millie still lies on my shoes when I've been gone for most of the day. And Roxie comes running to the door when she hears me coming in. Did you notice my Lol of Roxie thanking the Dr. The part about me thanking him was because he let me observe the surgery. Quite interesting! Give Tiger & Rocky a bonk for me! Later~
Bucky is such a great little goggie. When he plays wiff da kittehs he kinda rolls around, he licks their face and tries to chew off their whiskers. But when he gets around other dogs he more jumpy and bouncy and he runs a lot. lol!
If I don't get to the cack, Bucky the dog will! YUCK! I get mad at him when he does it but I don't know why I do coz at least it gets cleaned up one way or another. It's just gross, I guess, and he doesn't need more food to eat!!!!! :D
When I had just a measly 9 kittehs, it was like having maybe 3. Now that I have 16, it's like having elebenty milyun! I can't sit on the couch without having a kitteh invasion. There'll be at least 3 or 4 on top of me. ARG! Oh, and then there's the baffroom kittehs, and....so on and so forth. My bedroom is now banned of all fings cats! lol!
