I had almost forgotten about this site. Okay, to bring you up to date – so far we have 5 cats, Thomas (me), Alex, Sinjin, Max and Licorice. Max needs to be neutered (hopefully this summer) and Licorice will need spaying. Cheryl has published a book and written 3-1/2 more. She’s working on book 4 for the Der Reizen series and a book just for my human sisters. Cheryl also has a part-time job working at the food bank. She’s been doing that for a couple of years now and volunteered before that.
Now if only I could get her trained to get up before 5 am to feed me and the others. It’s a royal pain having to wake her up every morning. She should be able to do that on her own by now.
Cheryl’s doing better and managed to get a picture of me. It’s not my best side, but it’ll do until the sun comes out. It’s been raining the past couple of days and Cheryl’s been feeling the effects of it. Worse yet, I haven’t been able to go out in the backyard, even though it’s been mowed recently.
Hi, I’m Thomas. I’m a chocolate Siamese and I live with Cheryl, Petra, and Sinjin. I’m also the bearer of bad news. Casey had developed polyps, we thought, in one ear, but it turned out to be more than that. The vet suggested that it might be kinder to put him down now, rather than wait for him to have another, possibly fatal, seizure. Casey wasn’t walking too well, so we know the tumors (not polyps) were starting to affect his brain. Cheryl wasn’t happy about it, but the decision had to be made and she made it. Casey went to the Rainbow Bridge on the 26th of November, 2013. If I can convince Cheryl to type for me, I’ll be keeping up the site from now on. Casey wasn’t much interested in it. Continue reading
Well, things are almost back to normal around the house. The two females, Misty and Teela, have gone to Saskatoon to be adopted. Teela has found a new home and, I believe, so has Phineas/Duke, Misty’s son. Casey was feeling a bit left out after everyone left, I think. He tried to play with Rascal and Bandit, Sasha’s kittens from down the street, but they weren’t going to have anything to do with him.
So Cheryl did the next best thing and got him his own kittens. Sinjin is orange and Sidney is black. They’re hiding in the carrier right now, but they’ll be out when they get hungry, I’m sure. Cheryl’s doing dishes so that she’ll have some cat dishes. We’ll see if they like the Acana because Casey isn’t fussed on it. They like treats, though. *lol* Doesn’t everyone?
Joey died today, some time this morning. He isn’t suffering from his cold and such any more. I just feel guilty that I couldn’t afford to get him to a vet in time.
