It's tuesday and the dog is amped up! We hope that she'll be going sheep herding today so she can leave the house and leave us alone! She only bothers me....I'm not sure why..I think it's because I smack her! And of course mom has to be there with her flashy box!

A saturday with mom!!! We love having mom around! She'll be here with us thru next weekend! Maybe she'll let us visit our friends more regularly now!! We feel like mom has been a bit of a slacker-we'll have to get on her!
The vet called mom back yesterday about Kodak's Fructosamine and his protein...the levels have improved since his last vet visit. Mom is pretty happy!!!
We hope everyone had a great saturday! We know we did! We lounged in the sun, watched birds and snuggled with mom!!

Mom took me, Kodak, to the vet today. I had to have my fructosamine level checked and a urinalysis. But I'm always good at the vet-I only saw the vet tech today so I was in and out in no time, but when they brought me back out, mom was crying....it seems she was given Winton's ashes today and was bringing him home to his final resting place-home!

The fires that are burning throughout numerous counties here in Southern California are HORRIBLE! The fires have taken communities by complete surprise and have devastated areas! We are in southern california but not in the immediate fire area-yet we are feeling the impact!Mom had ash all over her car last night and as you see in the picture the large smoke-filled sky. And were at least 30 miles from the fires-it must be awful closer!! The smokey smell in the air, the smoke, the super low humidity, the winds-it's been awful! We hope and pray that every hooman and animal has been able to get out of the way of the fires-unfortunately that hasn't been the case...mom read in todays paper about two kitties that didn't make it because they hid under a bed when their hoomans had to race out of the house FAST! Their hoomans grabbed the carrier but the kitties were too spooked to get in and raced and hid, We are so sorry to anyone who has lost a house or a furry loved one during these horrible fires! We sure do hope it stops soon!!!

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.
You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

It's cold here. And super windy. mom has put out alot of wool blankets for us! Mom's hooman son is here so Winton has a lap to sit in alot! He likes moms hooman son!! Winton ate this morning after mom put him on the counter and now he's sleeping. Mom is going to attempt fluids today but if he doesn't tolerate it then she'll stop. Mom is really torn about what to do....she wants to make him as comfortable as possible but does not want to be that mommy who keeps her kitty alive just for her!!! But Winton will be the first kitty that mom will have to decide when "it's time" and it makes her cry!! She's had kitties before us, but it was when she was in college and her mom was left with those babies... Everyone says she'll know when it's time.....but she still cries and wonders if she's doing the right thing! Winton just continues to snuggle with her as do we all!!!

Mom has been SUPER busy!! She was working on a pilot called "Glee". She just finished 17 long days on sunday and now she's back and able to spend more time with us! Even mom's free time was spent working-she would sometimes work 6 or 7 days a week with no days off....so we're really happy to have mom home!!
Winton is ok-he has good days and then days of just sleeping. Mom has to put him up on the counter to eat. ALl he wants to do is sleep. He seems a little better about 8 hours after his fluids, but mom says he's lost so much weight! She just wants to keep him comfortable! He is still tolerating his fluids ever other day. Mom is going to get smaller needles because he's crying and being more difficult getting his fluids. The other day he got 75cc's which is good. He hasn't bitten mom yet but he does turn his head and growl now which he never did. But mom keeps trying and will continue with smaller needles until he doesn't tolerate fluids at all. She says his skin is feeling leathery and is tough-which makes the needles harder to get under his skin-and he's just skin and bones. But he still eats when mom puts him on the counter! So as long as he enjoys eating......
The rest of us are good. Blossom really beats up on 3 Perf. And it seems Blossom is beginning to like Velcro, the dog. She doesn't really bother me much-she must know I'm Russian and stoic and not to mess with me!
