THIS FAT OLD LADY HAS HERPES IN THE HOUSE

  No, it’s not me.  (Not totally true, anyone who has had chicken pox carries a version of the herpes virus which can reappear as shingles, and (possibly) Bells palsy – which I’ve had several times.) Anyhow … It’s our darling cat Leo. WTF, you might say; as indeed I did when the vet gave…

THIS FAT OLD LADY WOULD LIKE TO INTRODUCE …

Leo has been so lonely since Ollie passed.  He about broke my heart when we were playing with “THE TOY” and Leo kept stopping to look down the hall to see when Ollie would come play too. Sigh. So I started scouring the internet to try and find a little brother for Leo. I found…

R.I.P. Oliver

It was time.  He took a sudden and very bad down turn.  We took him to United Veterinarian Emergency Service.  They gave us time to say our goodbyes, we were allowed to be with him and he passed peacefully.  Goodbye good friend.

THIS FAT OLD LADY LOVES OLIVER

THIS FAT OLD LADY HAS A PISSY CAT

Ollie went to see the specialist today.  Just a check-up.  He is doing so much better. Yay. The vomiting has stopped and so has the diarrhea!  Happy to say, my life no longer revolves around cat poop. Ollie received his second shot (by me) last week (and got another today at the vets). Ollie eats…
