blue point siamese
My cats have loved the sparkle balls I got years ago from a fabric store.
My first introduction to the sparkle balls was in a cat toy Christmas stocking. They self-destructed in days. Hence, the hunting expedition for a suitable substitute. The 48 balls survived the ravages of energetic cat play for years. Now only 27 remained.
What happened to the other 21? Not sure. The vacuum cleaner may have gobbled up a few. A litter box casualty that got buried. Didn’t get scooped because it was washing day for the litter boxes.
There were 3 larger ones that Lily liked. They are missing. One escaped outside, must have got kicked out when we opened the backdoor. Are they under the washer, freezer, or dropped behind the bookshelf? For now, the 3 are MIA.
Cremation For Your Pets
Let’s face it. This is never a pleasant subject. But our little 4-legged family members will not be with us forever.
Some are taken too soon and others live a long, happy, healthy life.
I have been on many roller coasters of tragic endings. One cat having died after major surgery; her blood didn’t clot (4 1/2 years). One from kidney failure, within days of diagnosis (11 years old). One cat in the middle of the night from an asthma attack. We were working with a specialist to help manage her problem. (She died the day before her 7th birthday). Continue reading
Why not adopt a cat?
Ah, the controversy. The argument is powerful for this scenario.
Too many unwanted pets waiting for a new home. I agree.
I didn’t create the unwanted kittens.
And I can explain my stand on this topic.
Lots of unwanted children in foster homes and shelters. You want children, why not adopt or at least foster them? I 100% admire those that take on this challenge. Most will not. They want their own children. I prefer to choose my own cats to find the perfect match to bring harmony in the home.
Cats help to heal
I adore cats. After Molly’s death in May 2020, the loneliness of not hearing those purrs and meows became overwhelming.
Life kept us busy during May, June, and July, so not having 4 legged little ones around made it easier. But as the summer dragged on, the missing laughter that the little creatures bring became intense.
December 5, 2020, rolled around, and we picked up our first bundle of joy. Lily a 9-month-old chocolate point Siamese. Winning her over took a while. A year later and she has become a blessing. She has her only little quirks, and we adjust to her whims. (link)
