Now the kittens are "All cleared"...

Black was the last kitten pronounced "All clear" by the Vet yesterday. That is such a good sign but we knew she had to be cleared since the others were cleared. White, "Charlie", now has a forever home, so does Gray, "Tabby", now all we have to do is find black a new forever home but we are looking.

They are eating MUCH better, much neater, and pooping better. This morning I had the chance to restless them from the kitchen confines they have been in for the past 11 weeks. They ran all over, the dog chased them, then hid everywhere and they ran faster than the dog does.

We took them out of the kitchen last night and the Dog was put on his leash just to keep him under control. He did much better as I held on to him.

One gone, one kept, one to go

ONE gone, one kept, one to go and today is the start of a great week. One kitten to going to his new home today as a birthday gift to our waitress at Hollier's. She has been waiting on 'him' thru all his Vet visits, parasites, meds and more meds, and other delays. But she has been patient thru all these weeks and weeks and weeks - 12 to be exact. She has seen pictures of him and heard us talk about him for weeks.

The ONE we are keeping is also clear but he is the rut of the group - the Tabby that our male cat seems to like an gets along with. He is also the one who only has one eye. Our last one to give away is the black female and she is so well trained and so 'lovey' that we "hate" to give her away but KNOW we have to.

White - new name is Charlie - is gone. He was picked up last night and headed to his Forever Home. We are so happy but so sad to see him gone. It was the new ower's birthday and she had been waiting on his "All Clear" for weeks and weeks. We will know how he is doing since we eat at the restaurant where the waitress works plus she has my wife's number and vowed to send pictures etc.

The black kitten will have her 'stool' checked today and hopefully get the all-clear and we can post a notice to her adoption at the Vet's office.

Strange, but I haven't blogged since October

Strange, but I haven't blogged since October 31. Things have gone good around here. The kitten's are fine the cat and dog are good, my wife and I are fine also so all is well.

Except, that I went through a case of the 24 hour bug a couple of days ago and at that time I was shivering, had the runs, was throwing up, hurt all over, could not sleep, wanted to do things did not want to do things, thought I was gonna die, knew I wasn't; but just had to make it "through it". A day late but I felt today I feel much more like my old self.

Our washing machine is leaking and about to quit on us. My wife decided we need to invest in another so she began her exhausted search for a new one - which lead to needing a new dryer also, need flooring in the laundry room which led to driving around, checking this one, then these and then this and that,

Phew. Plus my son's fiancĂ©; live-in girlfriend, house mate for the past five+ years had her birthday and w  in, thee were all invited. He/she chose a very noisy place. After two and a half hours there my daughter wanted us to come by - where we spent another 3-4 hours talking about the old house. When  we finally got home the cat wanted in, the dog wanted/NEEDED to go out, the kittens NEEDED to be feed, and this was all after we had been gone 7 hours. We got home after midnight from a party that began at 5.
 
Story goes that we did not get to bed til well after 1am.

Friday, was just more of the same sort of. We went out shopping then about 6ish we swung by my son's house so my wife could look at his machines - that lasted a long while. Then he suggested a place to go eat while she wash a load of her clothes. She did then we went to eat clear across town. But the Mexican food was good but the spoke no "ENGLISH" and service was slow since it was a game night. We got back to my son's house late which meant we got home late again.

Saturday turned out to be good sort of again. We got the animals fed, walked, cleaned up after, and played with. The we tackled what we could before we could leave. ad to run by vet with 'stool sample from kittens' to be checked. I shampooed the carpet outside the laundry room.

When my wife got back she said she had news. "The kittens are "CLEAR" of parasites and free for their FOREVER HOMES!

Cool outside....

It is cool outside and I'm rocking away and typing on my laptop as a REAL LAPTOP. My wife is out here to worki... of no....playing on her iPad.

The kittens are asleep after paying a long time this morning and eating well. Our dog and cat are outside to enjoying the breeze. I wonder where we might go for lunch, also I know I am not going to CiCi's tonight with my wife. I am going to stay home and watch the Astros's game - alone - but I'm ok with that.

Things are much better overall today. Seems like like the kittens are doing so much better, the dog is  looking like he is back to his old self, the cat is doing very well. My wife's health is looking much better and mine is as good as I an expect, considering.

There is really nothing to blog about today other than I really would rather be doing something with my life if I could. I just have to think that God has a plan for me but I don't know what, when, where, etc.

Wife has gone off to 'work' CiCi's tonight with/for our son and I have stayed home in the dark to watch Astros game hoping to see them win the WS tonight.

Perfect weather, nearly perfect kittens, dog & cat....

Perfect weather, nearly perfect kittens, dog & cat. Let's take then one at a time. Weather could not have been better the last couple of days. Starts very cool - hum, cold in the early AM and warms up to cool during the rest  of the day. My Satsuma's are loving this weather. The dog doesn't like it to much in the AM but during the mid-day he loves beginning out on the porch.

The kittens seem to be getting a little better. We have had to separate them at night but we are getting thru it so far. During the day we are letting them have pay time together, just taking their litter box away till we separate them again  and make them go separate. They are eating better, playing better, snuggling more and better. Just being better 'kittens'. Just hope all goes well and we can adopt them out - all but one really. Runt may just become ours but he is doing so much better and getting bigger.

The dog is so much better and is so sad that he can't play with the kittens. We also know he just want of 'our' time instead of the kittens getting ALL of our attention. He is earing so much better, has taken all of his meds - as much as we could get down him. He still loves his 'me' time at night with momma.

Our lone large. old tomcat is still up and around. He generally sleeps with me at night and just hangs around the porch sleeping most of the day. He has not enjoyed the cold mornings but by mid day he would rather be outside than in.

On a side note. tomorrow is payday which we both love and are looking forward to. It is also Halloween, which we not be here for. We are no longer into that scene so it's 'lights off' and get out of town for us old people. We may go help our son at CiCi's or I might just stay and watch the Astro's game 6 with all the lights out or go to CiCi's to watch the game.....

Today our "lupper" may be at Waffle House just for a change of pace. We never know where we will eat but I am so looking forward to getting back to home cooked veggies and less money spent eating out everyday. I just want some more me, dog and cat time on the front porch.
