If my blog title today brings about visions of people in elegant dress, having a fine meal with excellent wines in a lovely restaurant, and taking to the dance floor here and there, forget it. In our house, the dinner dance is performed nightly by two dogs and six cats, each using their own inimitable…Read more »
Why the name Minh? Because Miller seemed wrong. I don’t often respond to the Daily Prompt, but every once in awhile, it catches my attention. Today’s prompt asks how someone was named. Sometimes the name of our pets have just come to us, like Thomas. I knew his name somehow before I even met him.…Read more »
Sorry to be so quiet this week. Very busy days helping our local cat rescue group with some urgent needs – always gratifying. And partly quiet because I’ve been in lots of pain the last few days…stupid SI joint. This aging stuff is a royal pain in the you-know-what sometimes, and quite literally so right…Read more »

Today she is having dental surgery, a surgery more on the routine side than the high-risk one, but with…Read more »
Some weeks are wilder than others. This week was one of those ones filled with all sorts of challenges, and lots of fun. Eight or nine cat households every day, which is just about as many as I can visit in a day and still give everyone quality attention. The highlights: I’ve been caring for Daytona, the…Read more »
