All hail to the lovely Ms. Yellow, our newest permanent addition!
Sunday, September 14, 2014
We have had six months of bowing and catering to the every whim of our foster-cat, the lovely Ms. Yellow. I'm not sure we meet with her complete approval, but it has been decided that she will stay with us. "Golden Pines" will be her official kingdom.

But the healing has started. Life continues on.
We are okay.

|~CarrieAnne in late July~|
As you know, it has been a difficult and sad time for us, as we grieve the loss of our precious CarrieAnne. Thank you to all of you for your thoughts, prayers and words of sympathy. I am deeply touched and humbled by your taking a moment to share her loss with us. You truly make a difference.
Yesterday was a difficult day. Without much sleep the night before and going to work for part of the morning, left me exhausted. The rest of the day was spent quietly at home. The holistic vet came to see Gus and she helped me to sort out what happened, and encouraged me to not feel guilty about the choice I'd made for Carrie to have the surgery. I think that feeling of guilt will stay with me for a long time.
At the end of the day, however, I did find that what can make anyone feel better, at least for a few moments is a Scottie and a fully charged bubble-gun.
What would I do without Todd?
Thank-you all again for your kind words, support and friendship.

God-speed my little CarrieAnne, my little cutie-pie, my little muffin. You taught me so much, about trust and about finding joy and happiness despite being afraid. At the Rainbow Bridge, there is no fear, and you'll be met by so many who have gone before you, including your sister Lucy who left us so many years ago. Let them all know we remember them, and that like you, they are missed, and that we look forward to the day when we will see you again.
