Thank you but I don't take aspirin.
Guess I needed to quote CCcgirl's last line when writing that.

One of our dear cats is shutting down after a stroke three weeks ago that left her blind. This will not be pretty, DH falls apart.

Every day is a gift <3

No guarantees on sobriety tonight. At least I didn't take the aspirin.

Every day is a gift. Try to make her as comfortable as possible. Let her be by herself if she wishes. When you know she's ready to leave let her; it's the final act of love in this world.

I lost my dear old dog April 23rd. It's hard for humans and for other animals. My 10 year old dog and my cat still haven't come to understand; they look for him. He suffered from arthritis and cognitive dysfunction for several years and I often had to help him. That made me love him even more.

Think of all the wonderful times with your kitty. Focus your love on her; she'll know. I believe that people who love their animals will be with them again, but it's still hard.

So sad - this same thing happened to my buddy Elliot. Hard to watch it happening when there's nothing you can do.Good choice - leave the aspirin and have a toast to her life.

Our animals are our children sometimes.
My daughter has a beautiful white cat that has to be at least 17. She walked into her apt. and just stayed about 12 years ago.
She has had a stroke and walks with a decided drag on her leg. Chloe is also blind but she goes around the house and knows instinctively where she is. She loves outside and listens to the birds and looks up to try to see them.

When this cat passes, we will be grieving for many moons. Pass the vodka.

If faced with that dilemma, I would quit aspirin.

I'm sorry CCcgirl.
This is one bad thing about loving our animals. Their lives are too short in comparison to ours

One of the things that disturbs me about condos is that only one pet is allowed, typically one cat OR one dog under 25 lb. That means that, as boomers go into senior housing, condos, and asst living, there are going to be an awful lot of dear dogs and cats that will go to shelters (there already are). If acquiring a pet after the age of 55 or 60, maybe best to adopt an older one. But then, vet bills can be hefty as the dog (and we) get even older.

I underpaid my ATT wireless bill by 10 cents last month. A mistake, but one that generated a $5 late fee on this month's bill.

I like to use online live chat with companies, it allows me to think and calmly reply in conversations. I used it today and did get the charge removed. Unfortunately, the representative I was chatting with had the screen name of 'Jennifer Grey'. I couldn't resist and at the end of our convo I said: "Thank you for the help today, I had the time of my life."

I am painting the garage to freshen it up - you know - the "man cave". It has a sprayed ceiling so it looks like a living room - or a bedroom and I guess it is my car's bedroom. Lookin really cute but not too cute.
