Two dogs on the lam (an update)

Yesterday morning my daughter called me from her home (about an hour away). Her two male dogs were missing, and she was quite upset. Her girl-dog, Lucky, was at home. I am showing a photo of Hoshi, above, but I don't have a photo of Oreo (who is black & white). Later that morning, the park ranger from Hanging Rock State Park (about a mile from her home) called to say that he had her two fugitives in "lock-up" overnight & to please come get them. Hehehe. Those rascals. There had been an accident at the park on Sunday afternoon and a hiker had fallen from the trail. The dogs must have been drawn by the excitement.  When she called me back later to tell me that all were home and safe, they were ALL very excited. I'm glad I don't have dogs. My kitties stay indoors, and the worst I face is Earl and Hemi using the house as a "race track"! No word on the condition of the hiker.  God Bless!
 This is Oreo!

Better news

I must report that Shizuku-Chan is feeling quite a bit better!! Thank God! We are keeping a watchful eye on her, but she doesn't seem to be in any pain, and her eyes "tell" me that she's doing better. Don't count the old girl out yet! Thanks to all who contacted me with encouragement, prayers and good thoughts.

This weekend has been beautiful here. Lower temps and humidity have been the order of the day.  I want to wish a Happy Father's Day to all the Fathers in our lives and a very Happy Birthday to my son, tomorrow. Too bad he has to work all day.

Blessed Sunday to us all!

Very Bad News

Several times this spring I have read on blog-friends blogs about their losing their older cats, for one reason or another. I hoped and prayed that it wouldn't happen to us. Yesterday we received the bad news from our Pilot Mountain Vet that Shizuku-chan is in kidney failure. After discussing the future with him, he made several good suggestions, and we will keep a watchful eye on her. I will not let her suffer, but I love her too much to let her go too soon (to meet my convenience). Your good thoughts and prayers for her (and us) will be appreciated. She is my best friend, and is now eighteen years old! God Bless!
