9/22/2014

As many of you know I took my first vacation in over 10 years to go see my daughter in Washington State.   Below are a few pictures of the visit.  Beautiful area but I would sure hate to live there in the winters with all the mountains  :)

I want to give a huge thank you to my staff for doing a great job of caring for the cats while I was gone and  Bill for staying here so I could get away for a few days!!  You all rock!!


With my daughter 550 feet below the surface in a gold mine.  I am very claustrophobic!

Cat News

Pepper will be home today minus an eye.  His eye had built up lots of internal pressure causing him tremendous pain.  After the vet tried different medications etc for 2 days it was decided the best action was to remove the eye.

Ray will also be home today but will be staying in the quarantine room.  He is on a new medication that we hope will help calm him from the stress of being with the other cats.  He will be allowed out of the crate for a few hours a day for exercise and attention but being crated will help keep him safe from the stress of the other other cats and give the medication a chance to get enough in his system.

Gallie is home and doing well.
