RIP Frankie

I'm off to pick up keys for new clients today and meet Grace & Indy. From January 12th on I will be very busy once again caring for travelling owners' cats. My board in the office is FULL and that's the way I like it. This is the stuff that gets me through the winter and makes it go much quicker. I am filling up the cat bag and updating some cat client files.

I got word not long ago that little Frankie has passed away. Do you remember Frank from last summer?
 He was 17 at the time and such a sweet, funny little guy. I knew when I left him on the last visit that I may never see him again as he was deteriorating at that time. I gave him lots of hugs that day and felt sad as I drove away. He was a lucky boy and had a very loving, attentive family.
 I loved this little guy. May he rest in peace.

Have a great Sunday everyone. It looks colder here today but I'll be cuddlin' new kitties in my care. Not a bad way to spend a wintry day.

Wait.....Ed says "howdy"

Hugs, Deb

  6. Nowdy Ed. You are looking right handsome today.

  7. Well hello to you, you handsome, precious fellow. May we steal a kiss?

    Frankie was surely a cutie-pie. He was blessed with a home and a family who loved him and cared enough about his well being to hire you to sit for him in their absence. It was lovely that you got to say your goodbyes to each other. It is somehow comforting that he knew how much you loved him. Even when they have had rich, full lives and pass advanced in years , it is still so hard to let them go.

  8. Ed seems to be saying "Hey, where do you think you're going!"
