more from october

November 10, 2018

and the thing is it seems like deep winter all of a sudden.  fall passed in the blink of an eye – it got deeply cold yesterday and snowed. ugh.  to early.  let’s go back to mid-October when we had that little flash of autumn. Winnie enjoyed lying in a new box.  he’s hanging in […]

i itch, therefore i am.

September 7, 2018

first, a couple of darling kitty photos. this was sunday, august 26th.  les had to rest his weary head on top of a sock, on top of a cushion, on top of a rug…and yet his usual favored sleeping position is resting against some cold piece of metal.  Winnie is pretty calm these days, and […]

although it’s early june, it feels like august.  91 degrees right now, feels like 96.  might as well be time for the fair. meanwhile, the end of may….this tiny fawn was curled up outside amy’s porch.  since then we’ve spotted it and its mom quite a few times – the tiny thing is smaller than […]

it’s like I jinxed things by writing that Winnie was OK as of yesterday – last night I stayed up much too late for no good reason at all, and this morning I was awakened by a sound that I couldn’t quite make out, but I suddenly knew that Winnie was having another seizure.  he […]

good news for winnie!

May 18, 2018

this morning we took him to the vet and he rode on my lap – he was much less stressed there rather than in a crate.  I told kevin to be extra sure that we didn’t have an accident since Winnie wasn’t buckled in. they had to take blood from his jugular vein which seems […]

Winnie, plus happier times…

May 16, 2018

Winnie isn’t doing well.  he had a seizure the night before last just after we’d gone to bed.  it was horrible, as he writhed and convulsed, for what seemed like forever.  I called the emergency vet but we decided we didn’t want to take him there; if this was it, we didn’t want his last […]

april…cats, mostly.

April 23, 2018

yeah, a mighty chilly april.  I’ve either been busy working or sitting around waiting for spring to actually arrive. riley is doing his best to adjust to life-at-breakneck-speed that we have around here.  I love how his paw is dangling down like that; he hasn’t done that since. Winnie has had his ups and downs, […]

finally spring, maybe? hopefully? hopefully.

April 19, 2018

yes.  spring.  it seemed that we’ve had now had a ritual of snow every sunday.  snow on easter, snow the sunday after that, and the sunday we just had…well, no snow really til Monday, and then it was a very brief blizzardy thing early Monday morning.  but it’s been chilly and blustery and i’m itching […]

sunday evening, right before it start snowing yet again…

April 8, 2018

i’m convinced now that we’re going from winter to summer, no spring at all.  my poor daffodils have been trying valiantly to bloom but it’s a good thing they haven’t because the snow is going to start again any minute now.  ridiculous. I just hurt my leg somehow, skidding on the floor.  how?  why? the […]

Winnie, hanging in there…

March 21, 2018

we took him to the vet this morning; we found that having him sit on my lap on the the ride to the doc is much better than him being in his cage. the vet visit, not so fun for him.  the good news, hopefully, is that he has pancreatitis, something that’s not going to […]
