A Rough Day

Well it’s been a rough day in my little corner of life.  Our cat almost died, and while he is hanging in there now, we don’t know what the week will bring.  He’s almost 14 years old, and truly the fattest cat you have ever seen (pictures don’t do him justice, but I’ll see if I have any on this computer I can post).  Considering that the vet told me (when he was a year old and a mere 11… Read more »
