Missing Emma

It has been more than two months since our beloved Emma left us. Mom and I still talk about our sweetheart every day. Her ashes still sit on the couch, where she loved to sleep.

Scorpio is Sick

The summer of stress and worry around here has continued until the fall. Yesterday afternoon, Scorpio, who is rarely sick, began vomiting. In about 10 hours, he vomited about a dozen times.

Personal Updates for September 21, 2019

Today was a beautiful sunny day. It may have been the last warm sunny day this year. So, we made the most of it.

Ufi was very active today. He played with his ring a ton. He went in his pool a lot. I just love seeing him enjoying life that much.

Mr. Rogers has been outside for 15 hours. Whenever I sat down, the little guy came looking for attention. He is the friendliest, most loving cat I have ever known. He’s very needy, but Mr. Rogers is great at making you smile.

Scorpio spent lots of time outside too. As I listened to baseball, he settled next to me and wanted to be touched. Being typical Scorpio, if I stopped to change games, he would scratch at my arm or leg. He doesn’t scratch hard enough to hurt, but he lets you know you aren’t doing what you are supposed to be doing.

I played basketball for almost two hours. For a lot of that time, I was also tossing Ufi’s ring. It was a wonderful day! I hope we have more like them, but if this was it–we made the most of it.
