Happy Birthday

Friday Cat Blogging

Property is 16 today.

Property at 16

Tax Day is Tuesday but here’s the theme music for the day on YouTube.

Because Tax Day fell on Saturday and Emancipation Day in DC is celebrated on Monday, the deadline is extended until Tuesday, the 18th.

16 years! I remember when he was born. Is that a recent photo? He looks healthy. 🙂

I was staying in Melbourne the past Month (time sure does fly!) Staying with a family I’ve known over 40 years. 17 YO Granddaughter of my old friend died. I knew her & her Mom & 2 siblings since they were born! It was a difficult time. I took the 3 kitties after talking about it with my friend. As we hoped, the two eldest bonded will with the two munchkins. 🙂 I came home with Callie last night, Missie & Kitty stayed there. It’s better for all. I have been having trouble properly looking after 3 cat’s. I’ll miss them, but they seemed happy there & the kids & family love them. I set up a vid-chat system so we can keep in touch. I miss the 17 YO lass a lot. She was so full of life, suddenly gone.

I’ve been to many funerals in my life. I was able to help the family deal with the loss. Trying to pretend it didn’t happen or trying to forget, never works. Just makes everything worse. The kid’s didn’t want me to leave yesterday, and it was tempting! But, I’d done all I truly could. And it’s better this way. I was exhausted. Dealing with a family I love & my Depression and PTSD… Took everything I had. We’ll stay in touch. 🙂

Good luck with Property Bryan. 🙂

Take care my friend. Paul.

If Property is 16, that means that Koshka is, as well, and Kaylee is 17. I had to give the Girls up several years ago because the difficulty of caring for them properly. *sigh* I miss them so much, especially since Gary is gone. However, they both found new homes via the rescue we took them to, and I get the occasional report from the rescue. I miss them all.

The picture was from March, as she has been visiting at night most of the time, She spends much of her time sleeping on the lawn in front of the “Cat House”.

Losing a young family member is hard and the death of my younger nephew has been really hard on my younger brother. He’s slipping into dementia. We have video calls, but he isn’t really aware of what we’re saying. you don’t expect to attend your child funeral. He can’t get over the loss and is withdrawing. Of course Covid restrictions made things worse.

You did good. Having to notify a family that their son or husband isn’t coming home is one of the hardest things you have to do in the military. You held it together to help others.

They are really pretty cats but you did the right thing for them. Being alone isn’t easy and health issues make it harder to deal with. You could try a guinea pig. My niece had one that was heathy, but crazy. He had a big ball that he could run around in, even if he occasionally bounced down the basement stairs.

People keep bringing kittens by, but I’m not fast enough to keep up with one.
