    Re: For animal lovers

    I did donate a lot of her toys to the Animal Shelter gift shop. One of her doggy beds went to her groomer, who will use it for her cat. I crocheted her a beautiful bed that stayed on the love seat between hubby's place and my place. Summer would climb up on it, lay flat out on her back, and look at us as if to say, "Hey, staff members, why is no one rubbing my tummy?" I'll never be able to part with that, nor will I ever wash it.

    As each day passes, we're learning to focus more on the wonderful, blessed memories of our time with her, rather than on our grief.

    Re: For animal lovers

    I finally took some pictures of my kitty cat, Squirt, to post. He was named Trouble when I got him but he didn't look like trouble to me. He was just a little squirt (I could hold him in one hand, he was so tiny) so I called him Squirt. He has lots of nicknames, including Squirty, Squirtle, and Squirtmuffin.

    He wasn't in the mood to have his picture taken tonight. I had to give him some treats to get him engaged with the camera and towards the end, he started grooming himself to ignore me and then openly glaring at me. lol! He's usually a very sweet cat so I guess he's just ready for bed or having a bad day.

    Squirt has such terrific markings. I love the tabbies. Thanks for posting his pictures, he's adorable.

    And I see from the last pictures that he's also a FORT fan, LOL.

    I love tabbies, too! They're the sweetest kitties. He likes to sit right in front of me while I'm at the computer. Last night he was staring right at the screen and it made me wonder if he was reading it, too. Maybe he was just staring at it trying to figure out why I'm so interested in the little glowing screen. lol!

    I have to keep moving my mouse around the desk because he likes to curl up on the mouse pad or on my hands. It gets frustrating sometimes but he's so cute, it's hard to stay mad at him.

    I'll have to take some pictures of my other cat, Dixie. I inherited her from friends who moved out of the state and couldn't take her with them to their new place. She's not as friendly as Squirt and prefers to stay outside but she comes inside to eat. She got her name because my friends found her in a Winn Dixie parking lot.

    Re: For animal lovers

    I'm going to have some unhappy kitty cats. They're both overdue for a check-up at the vet's office and Squirty has been having tummy troubles for a few weeks so I'm going to take them in either this weekend or next week while I'm off work. Squirt's pretty good about riding in the car and being examined, although last time he did hiss at the vet once. Dixie, on the other hand, cries the moment she gets in the car and complains the whole way, there and back. I'll make sure to give them a treat when we get home.

    The 4th mouse we live trapped this week I drove to a secluded location. It was a pleasant ride (all 3 blocks of it). The mouse must have been enjoying it too, I didn't hear any objections from it. Ingrate, it didn't even wave goodbye.

    They get a special meal and a freedom ride, huh?
