you believe it's May already! I'm waiting for the weather to realize what
the calendar says tho. Has anyone else
been watching the eagles or the falcons on the cams? Ihappen to check
the cam a few weeks ago for the eagles
in Washington state &
saw one of the babies hatching! It was so cute! The northeast
eagles are a little ahead of the washington ones. The northeast eaglets
are starting to get their white head feathers! I love spring when all
the babies are being born & the flowers are blooming. I have a small
decorative bird house in my front yard tree & I noticed one day that
there were a couple birds hanging around it. I lokked the other day &
sure enough there is a nest inside! The birds removed the front of the
house-turning it on it's side to gain entrance! I don'tknow if there are
any babies in there as I don't want to disturb the nest in case there
Wow did I stay busy visiting all of you
over Easter/Spring beak. Whew- you guys wore me out! And I had some unexpected
buddies that I didn't plan on-it seems Mr.Tibbles who broke into the enclosed
porch of one house was in reality Mrs.
Tibbles & between the time the owner left & I arrived she had
babies! Sadly a couple didn't make it but 2 did & it was very cute
watching them. I had to watch from a distance since Mrs. Tibbles is wild
& I didn't want her too upset. One time when I looked out Mrs.Tibbles
had her paws wrapped around the babies with their little heads up under
her chin & they were sound asleep! It was precious! Then at another
house Cyndy was fostering Lexus
& her 4 babies-Mercedes,
They were about 4 weeks old and oh my- I couldn't move in that room as
I had 4 kittens who thought my legs were the greatest climbing post ever
made! They were adorable & lots of fun but also quite a handful! Next
month is Adopt A Cat Month & for good reason- soo many kittens are
being born this time of year & sadly there aren't enough homes for
them all. It's important for us all to keep passing the word to Spay &
Neuter your pets. I know all of
you are but if you know of anyone, or come across anyone who doesn't have
their pets Spayed or Neutered please tell them of all the homeless pets
out there. I recently read in Lollypop's news that they are coming close
to being able to find homes for almost all the dogs that come in, but
cats are still lagging way behind. For some reason people think it's OK
not to "fix" their cats. Last year they had to set up temporary
cages in the halls & offices to hold all the cats that came in. So
please-pass on the word!! Also Lollypop has a new behavior line that you
can call if you need help with an unacceptable behavior your pet is doing-
the number is 295-2999 or you can go to their website at www.lollypop.org
went to the groomer yesterday! First time ever he got professionally groomed!
He did really good! But he got his whole back end shaved (hehehehehe)
so as the groomer called him- he is a monkey butt!! That's what he looks
like too- all shaved with this big bushy tail sticking out! Boy the dirt
that came off him! I expected that-he sure was muddy!! I was so proud
of how well he behaved.
Sadly we lost some buddies this time. I
was devasted when Chris emailed me to tell me Samantha
has passed away. That was so out of the blue, she wasn't really sick.
Then I heard
from Barb that my dear sweet Sadie
passed away. She had been sick but I was hoping the antibiotics would
help but unfortunately she must have had some other illness. The other
day we lost one of our bunny-buddies Bucky.
In fact- Bucky was Max's buddy. I don't know why but Max loved that bunny.
I would let Bucky out to run on the deck & Max would watch him &
when we got there he would be all excited barking & whining til Bucky
showed up! One time I was trying to get Bucky to go back in his cage &
he was running around being difficult so I took a stick to use in that
situation to just kind-a poke him along, well- I thought Max was going
to come after ME! He was soo upset that I was "hurting" his
Bucky! I know when I go again there Max will be looking for his pal &
he will be sad too. I know Andrea felt just awful because she called &
we talked about it but unfortunately she lost her dear dog Rocky.
When I got a call to visit with Tinkerbell & Buttercup I learned of
passing. Our prayers are with all who are dealing with losses at this
New Buddies! Oh Esther!
Another difficult cat! But Esther was different in that I could pet &
play with her as long as we were
in the kitchen-but once we went downstairs to where she ate --watch out!
Whew- can cats have split personalities too? Ray & Anita warned me
but those of you that have known me long know that I get pretty stubborn
when trying to win the affection of my difficult buddies!! Emma
was another difficult but only for a few minutes--she was easy to win
over with a handful of treats! dogs are so easy!! I was glad it worked
out so Shelly & her family could have a great vacation.
Later this week I will be visiting with
Dexter while Lindsay goes away & with Tyler while his mom Jeanne is
gone. Both are friendly wonderful big boy cats that should be loads of
I suppose I better go rest my back now-
some of you know that I have a major muscle in my back that decided it
wanted to spasm & tighten up on me so to say I have been in a bit
of a pain- well-- OWWWWW!! All last week I was on the floor & a couple
days I even had to have my husband drive to the houses
while I layed in the back seat with Max! This week hasn't been too busy
so I've been trying to take it easy so this thing heals up before I get
busy! I've been told it could be weeks for this to heal. Sitting is not
a position that brings any relief either!
I hope you all enjoy this month & Spring!!
I enjoy driving this time of year when the dogwoods, magnolia & cherry
trees are flowering & the flowers are blooming. But mostly I enjoy
driving to see you!!!!
