Re: For the cat people

We lost our last 2 dogs to the poisoned pet food a few years back. We’ll not be getting another dog, even though I really miss having them in our lives. It just got to be too much for me to get the dogs into the car to get them to the vet during their last illnesses.  Having said that, pets are the only thing that gets me out of bed and moving some days when I’m in a lot of pain.  
Are there no pet sitters in your area? We had a great one for a number of years. She’d come in 3 times/day, bring in the mail, turn lights on and off, watered the plants (not to well, but the dogs liked her) and took care of the chickens, too. She cared for our pets for years and years until she and her husband split and she had to take a job that provided health care and more money. She pet sat a couple of times after that but couldn’t get out at Noon and the dogs needed that extra mid-day walk.

Subject: Re: [CHAT] For the cat people
Am down to one cat now. When he finally crosses the bridge, I think we will go pet - free. It is getting harder to find friends willing to come in to feed and scoop litter when we travel, and cats are so much more  comfortable in their familiar surroundings.
