Thursday report: ShopTillYouDrop, we hope your knee gets better soon...you've got enough going on as it is! Feel better! I've passed your comments on to the Kitty Sitter about this next phase in her career -- she sends her thanks for your encouragement. She's learned a lot. She left the sanctuary today and headed back to Vegas for the rest of the conference. She saw a "Schmoo look-a-like" today when leaving the sanctuary -- a sign, for sure, that she's headed in the right direction. We knew we were in the right direction when we adopted Schmoo. He was old (10) and languishing at the she... Continue Reading

I appreciate you getting my attention, though -- and thanks for remembering the gems I love! My pleasure Sammycat. I ordered it to wear as a middle finger ring. Hopefully, it won't be too bulky. Last night, I ordered Victoria Wieck's new smokey quartz bow ring in the gold vermil. Was pretty cute and the price was under 100 dollars. Thank... Continue Reading

Wednesday report: I thought you'd enjoy a photo essay featuring the Kitty Sitter and her activities at the Best Friends Society no-kill animal sanctuary in Utah. She's learning a lot as she prepares for her retirement career to help animals without homes. Beastielove, she says to tell you that this is a two-traffic light town, so you have to like isolation if you're packing up to move here -- plus, there's an opening for a "Cat Caregiver" right now!

Tuesday report: It's been so warm on the battlefield that many insects -- like the orange Asian beetles -- have kicked into production again, swarming about...and, you guessed it, this leads to today's Schmoo Tale. True to his feline predatory roots, Schmoo hunted anything that moved -- or had the potential to move. Even at the vet's, when they had the air conditioning on the fritz and they had to open windows, his head whipped back and forth as birds and bugs had the audacity to traipse past his exam room's window. Nothing got on his nerves more than the infamous stink bug. These are bugs fr... Continue Reading

Monday report: Beastielove, the Kitty Sitter phoned me tonight from the Best Friends place and sends her regards. She will retire next month and this trip is first to a conference in Vegas re: the challenges of shelters with a visit to the Best Friends place in Utah as a part of it. The Kitty Sitter isn't sure exactly where she'll fit in to her "second" career, and is attending this with the hope of finding where she can best serve. Tomorrow she gets a tour of their entire operation then tomorrow afternoon and all day Wednesday she'll be in "Cat World" exclusively. One night this week the con... Continue Reading

Hi Peach, just checking in to see how you and your family are coping. I wanted also to recommend a brief illustrated book. Although it was initially done for children, it's messages are timeless and it gave me great comfort when our Fergus died. There's a version for cats, too. These are priceless and I still read them often when feeling low about furbabies we've loved and lost: "For Every Dog, An Angel" -- by Christine Davis. Continue Reading

Sunday report: Thanks for your kind comments on Sophie from yesterday's post. Today's post answers Tissyanne's question of the other day -- and in so doing, honors our Schmoo, who we lost 1 1/2 years ago today. Tissyanne wanted to know how the Kitty Sitter is doing. Even as I respond to this question, she's beginning her retirement career: on the plane to a national conference about helping shelter animals and working specifically at the Best Friends Cat Sanctuary in Utah. When Kiki-Girl died, the Kitty Sitter knew it was time to retire from her primary career and spend the rest of her life h... Continue Reading
