Sammy is the last man standing

Years ago when we got Gambit, Sammy, and Vladi all within a year I realised this was potentially a very bad plan. Having three pets roughly the same age meant we we're probably going to loose them all around the same time.

When Gambit died a few months ago I looked at the how the other two we're doing and thought they'd be fine for a few more years.

The morning Daphne was born Vladi was suddenly doing so badly I was affraid he would die before I got out of the hospital. He proved me wrong but wasn't really well again. I knew I should take him to the vet but 1. I was dealing with a newborn and 2. I'd seen this behavior before and was affraid they'd tell us it was time to put him down.

A few days ago I realised his under coat was growing in completely white. A couple days latter when the movers came he ran off and never came back. We left him food and he didn't eat it. We tried repeatedly to find him but it's been long enough now I have to admit he's gone. I hope he adopted another family but I know it's more likely he went someware to die.

So now there's just Sammy. Other than being old she seems fine.

I miss my cat and I worry about that stupid dog.

Don't have internet but had to share this

Fiona: What if we make a pool for cats?

Me: That would be easy, all you have to do is nothing. Cats don't like watter.

Fiona: We could fill it with sand.

Me: If you make a sandbox for cats they won't use it for swiming.

My mum always used to buy a record every Friday.-Elton John

We live across the street from a school. I was on my way home from a walk as school let out.

Boy rushing away from school: Excuse me, it's Friday right?

Me: Yes it is.

Boy: Oh thank god!

T.G.I.F. indeed little man. T.G.I. F. indeed.

I think women have to change their hairstyle from time to time.-Yulia Tymoshenko

I have a ridiculous amount of hair. I've spent my maternity leave learning new ways to style my hair. I should have been born in an era when I'd have had a maid to do it for me.

I catnap now and then, but I think while I nap, so it's not a waste of time.-Martha Stewart

5 ways babies are like cats

They like milk (okay that one was obvious).

They can fall asleep wherever they happen to be in the most bizarre positions and be perfectly happy.

When they want attention they get in your way when you try to read or use the computer.

They have a knack for falling asleep on you right as you realize you need to pee.

If you have more than one and one is sitting on your lap the other one will also want to sit on your lap regardless of the fact that there is not room for both.

A cat doesn't know what it wants and wants more of it. - Richard Hexem

I've often said that if there is such a thing as reincarnation I want to be a cat in my next life. They must have done something right to have people pamper them all day. Being a dog would be good too but you have to be careful you don't wind up coming back as a border collie or something and wind up having to herd cattle.
