Re: Ball gardens...addictions...drought/cat


Fleur is the kitty who was born with something like spina bifida. She can stand for short periods but generally just pulls herself around. I cannot tell you the number of times Otis has stepped on her.Fleur is four-years-old and is an average size cat.

Well, Noreen, cats do reincarnate, you know...

I have two cats, Tiger Lily and Melvin, who love to greet the trick or
treaters.  They were truly disappointed when there were only 5 children
last
night.  I have so much candy left I'm taking it to the town office
tomorrow.

Took Otis and Magick to be neutered today. I'm picking Magick up tomorrow
because I miss him so much. Otis will be joined at the "spa" by Precious
and Fleur on Thursday as I'm off to Eureka Springs, AR, until Tuesday. I
might not pick them up until next Wednesday! I must admit, however, that
the house seems eerily quiet without Otis.
