Still thinking about it but its still tough as I am trying to NOT alllow it to be fact but he is not moving around as much and he didn't eat his supper even though he wanted it (the 2 vultures ate it and then begged me for some meat from MY supper!!!!) I know its going to be tough as he seems to like me the best right now-in some ways I really wish that was NOT the case.

friday and thoughts of a cat

Friday, October 26, 2012

Well another week shut to hell. I have the joy of watching my tomcat get sicker and sicker and coming to the inevitable decision that I will have to end his suffering sooner rather than later. Its hard for me as I did NOT care for him when we first got him as I just knew he was going to be a long haired cat and a shedder (in fact my pet name for him used to be "hairy bastard" he was a replacement for a little black kitten my daughter had that had an inoperable urinary tract problem ) - the only thing that managed to bring us close was the fact that after my tom died (in his sleep -he was obedient and unselfish to the end) was the fact that I realized that after Malcolm died, that he (Sam) and I had both lost our best friend. He never did endear me with his shedding but I did tolerate it (I am sure that the lint roller companies LOVED ME) but as long as he managed to keep his HAIR out of my food it was tolerable and we did get quite attached. Anyone who has ever had a Maine Coon as a pet can attest to their loyalty and obedience , much like taking the best characteristics of from a cat and a dog. The true irony was that we were never sure WHAT Sam was (or is as he is still alive of course as I write this as I have not set a date and as far as I know neither has anyone else) as he was picked up as kitten from the SPCA as was Malcolm. Its curious as I feel guilt shame and a whole gamut of emotions and thoughts regarding this whole thing. It is NOT an easy task .

    My heart goes out to you. We had to do it with Wheeler. It's a difficult decision but you will know in your heart when the time is right.

    I lost a wonderful basset hound who was almost 18 years old a little over a month ago. It was a really hard time for me and my family. I am sorry for what you are dealing with--Chloe gradually got slower and slower and the last week of her life was about to be a trip to the vets, but she passed on while we were at church.

Anyway, it was a tough time that I haven't yet gotten over. I extend my prayers to you as you go through this with your kitty. Take care of yourself.

    no my dear its not. So many underestimate "pets", they become family before we know it. Lol sneaky lil things aren't they? The fact he comes to you & loves shows you he holds no ill will! He trusts you to make the best decision. I'm sorry for your pain. Remember the silly things he did that got you upset but now you chuckle lol I know there are some. Thoughts are with you. emoticon emoticon

an introspective day

Wednesday, October 24, 2012

One of the guys at work had a stroke today and he was only 36. Makes you kind of wonder about things and life in general- gave me pause to reconsider some of my own goals and to try to do more about my (admitted) bad habits.BTW why is there an ad for a FIVE POUND GUMMI BEAR ON THIS SITE?????

    When I worked as a coronary nurse I had 39 years olds have heart attacks and die. It was a freak out. I need to take better care of myself too. Ugh on the gummi bear!

    OMG 36? That's horrible (well @ any age but wow). Makes me pause & regroup also. As for the gummy bear , think of this as temptation island or $ is the other option

fun day

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

I had the distinct fun of having to drive one of my employer's vehicles across the city as it was being used as a donor vehicle before being disposed of as surplus- sadly the thing had already donated its differential and so consequently had the
crap one in it. So I go to endure a half hour of lurching and various noises emanating from the trunk area - it was OK unless you were slowing down ,speeding up or turning. A few times I had to look back to see if I had left the stupid thing (the differential) behind me as it made such a racket I was certain that it was liberating itself.
