Poor Tibby has been a bit displaced this week
we have a big lilly pilly tree and through the day he lies under it in the grass in the shade, but it is in full rather magnificent bloom and humming with bees
Im not sure if its the bees or the falling flower bits that have coated everything that he'd not keen on but it explains why he's moved out to the driveway
I have since thrown down a cat blankie on the bag of potting mix

Meet Cookie.

Screen Shot 2020-02-23 at 3.35.23 PM.png


Her foster name is Cookie but not her permanent name if we adopt her. I am leaning towards Trixie. But haven't started thinking of names yet. Don't want to get too attached til we know for sure. We are waiting for her RW culture results and if it comes back negative we might be having her join our family.

The adult cats don't engage with Oliver (mainly because he plays too rough) and we were hoping Cookie might be just the addition we need to help Oliver have a happy kitten hood. After we adopted him this past summer and went through all we did I said never again am I adopting a kitten. I want to adopt an older cat who would have a harder time finding a good home. I love the older cats. So sweet and mellow and chill. But a kitten is our best bet to engage with and be a good playmate with Oliver. Or she may not and then we go back to the drawing board.

But the head of the Brooklyn rescue group we are working with suggested Cookie because she isn't in a great situation (moved from foster to foster due to difficulties with the fosters kittens) and she is supposedly super sweet. We met her yesterday and she is very shy which is understandable given all she has been through. But she does seem sweet. If this works out it will be a win win for Cookie and for Oliver so fingers crossed.

Right before they left yesterday we let Oliver sniff her in her carrier. We didn't allow contact due to my fear of RW. Weird what happened though because after he sniffed her he went under the dining room table and wouldn't come out. Not sure that bears well but he is generally very aggressive with all new cats so this was a change. The rescue person told us that Cookie can hold her own and can play rough if need be and play gentle if need be to allay my concerns since Oliver plays rough. So we shall see.

Bailey is waiting for my son’s bus..He doesn’t like the bus driver to take him! It takes all my strength to hold him back from running up to the bus when it pulls up! Would you believe he had TPLO surgery? The surgeon did such a good job! Not bad for eleven years old!

Thank you Missy! His surgeon was amazing. I swear by Cosequin..He’s on a maintenance dose of two a day. I started that after his surgery. I think it keeps him limber..

@missy I’m falling in love with Cookie. She seems so sweet. I hope she comes back free of RW.. I know you said it takes longer to know but that would be a positive (good) result...I wonder what other kiddos will think of a kitten..lol...

Thank you @Mamabean and @kipari I really appreciate your continued good wishes. We shall see. I think Bobby and Tommy would be happy with no more family members but Oliver needs someone to play with besides Greg and me. We aren't enough for him. He deserves a playmate. But having said that there are no guarantees re getting another kitten that she/he will play with and engage with Oliver and vice versa. We had been super lucky up to this point with our cats but I guess our luck ran out and just hoping we can get everyone back on track.

had to let Gretta go today. Kidney disease progressed. Lungs filling with fluid. Not eating. Got her and her brother at six weeks. Almost thirteen years now.
I wasn’t even there. I was in a lyft trying to get back. i think I told her I loved her this morning. I did again on the phone whilst she was at the vet. her dad was there, last thing she did was groom his face.

Oh no, my heart is heavy for you @yssie. You gave Gretta a wonderful life. She knew you loved her very much. I know you are suffering and I'm so sorry. Sending hugs and comfort <3

I'm so sorry @yssie. She knew how much you loved her and you did all you could and when the time came you gave her the ultimate gift. The gift of freedom from suffering and the gift of peace . Sending you gentle hugs. I am so sorry for your loss.
