The sun was warm and the temperature was well above freezing today. I know Spring has arrived when Sierra
wants to sit on her red bench on the porch and wait for the mailman to arrive.
Calls for Easter weekend cat-sitting are coming in now from those with last-minute plans. I have my regulars who book me well in advance, also. Like little Emma,
my diabetic kitty-client who needs 'special' care for when the owners travel. I have lots of cats and the bunnies again this coming weekend.
I hear the weather will be just fine for our Easter celebrations.
Today, after walking Kane
, I grabbed my ipod and headed out again to have a more fast-paced walk. Kane's
walk is slow and methodical. It's his walk, not mine.
Dear 'ol Mr. Ed
enjoying the sun on his cat-scratcher.
He'll be 25 soon and we see a big change in him the last few months. Reality is setting in and we are thankful to have had another winter with him warming himself by the wood-stove. We want him to be as comfortable as possible and to sleep away his days in the warm sun-light. He is still eating with gusto, comes to us for his massages, loves his Lily
and uses his box without fail. We see what time is taking from him, though. His eyes are cloudy and his balance is not good but he still gets around with his gimpy leg. He is thin now and no matter what I feed him I can't get any weight on him. He still likes to climb giving me a heart-attack every time he heads for the stairs. I watch him like a child now. He's a good boy and he shows us in his way how we are important to him, too. We are thankful for every day we have with him.
This little bear wanted in on the Easter festivities so I fitted him with a duck suit and he'll join the bunnies, chicks and sheep in the dining-room.
I think he fits right in.
will get a kick out of him and what little girl doesn't like to dress up her bear.
