Sweetie hanging out beside our driveway.
One of the first photos of her, from May, 2009.

Sweetie spend Monday and Tuesday nights at the veterinarian's.

Because they had to redraw her blood, and needed 24-48 hours to get results, we decided to board her until her dental extractions on Wednesday.


I have vacuumed her apartment, and fixed up the litter boxes.

All of her toys are arranged in front of her favorite bed.

I hope to pick her up today, but the vet will determine how well Sweetie's gums are after the surgery, to allow her to go home or remain overnight to be monitored.

I expect a phone call this afternoon, so I'll be pacing the floor all day today.


It's the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day!

My elementary school celebrated the 1st Earth Day.
The students made a garden on the school grounds.

My point of view:
Folks around the world are seeing critters venturing out into areas they aren't always seen, as human activity is low.

You've all seen photos of Los Angeles and other big cities, without smog.

There is a lesson in all of this; Mother Nature Rules!

She can send hurricanes, typhoons, earthquakes, poisonous algae blooms...and illness.

MN has been pounding us over the head, telling us humans that it's time to get our collective act together, and respect her and The Earth.

This isn't about governments.

It's how each of us value our own lives, and our loved ones.

My loved ones include humans, cats, birds, worms, bees, fish...even spiders (eek!)

Leave only footprints when walking in Mother Nature's gardens.

Happy Earth Day!

A continued wish for you all to remain virus-free

To borrow a phrase from Nerissa's Life Blog:

"When in doubt, don't go out!"



  1. Oh, best wishes. I hope she's home soon. ~hugs~ As for the industrial world, have you heard about The Dark Mountain Project? Here is a blog post I read today (with links embedded if you want to know more).

    Take care!

  2. My prayers that Sweetie will come home soon. I'm so very glad she has decided it was time to retire to the good life as an indoor kitteh.

  3. I hope Sweetie gets to come home today and be with you as you wish. It's hard to have them away from us. Pacing is the perfect word for what we do when we're waiting to hear.

    Have a fabulous day my friend. Extra healing scritches to Sweetie. ♥
