Picasso's Mom told me the story of her return home after hip surgery. She had been in the hospital for a lengthy stay so she and Picasso were thrilled to be back home together. It wasn't long that they settled back to thier normal lives but there was one hitch. Maureen needed to have physical therapy & the therapist would be coming to the house to help with the exercises. On her first arrival Picasso promptly jumped up on Maureen & would not allow the therapist to come near! Before Maureen could get her needed therapy the poor therapist needed to befriend Picasso! That did eventually happen & therapy was provided but Picasso was always with his mom during the sessions in case his job of protecting his mom was required! Beware of Picasso !!! Congratulations Picasso- you have well earned your title of Most Protective Kitty

the holidays are over & hope everyone had a great time! You guys sure
kept me busy but it was great seeing so many of you. I was glad that the
weather co-operated at least thru my busy time but it sure is making up
for it now! I feel like a popsicle out walking with the dogs! I have so
many clothes on that I suppose if I did fall I would just roll around
on the ground like a WobblyWeeble!
So many of you dogs don't seem to mind the cold -brrrr! My Max
loves to go out & roll around & get snow all over him then come
back in with snow coating his face! Yuck! I keep telling him he makes
me cold just looking at him but he smiles! I do have to be careful tho
with you snow dogs & can't keep you out too long because we don't
want any frost bitten paws! I was visiting with Charlie
& Charlie was enjoying catching his tennis balls or searching for
them through the snow but a couple times the ball got feeze-stuck to his
mouth! A couple times I thought I'd have to bring him home to thaw before
the ball would release. I've noticed how many dogs love the burrow
deep into the snow with their heads & come up eating it & it makes
me cautious to always check out the area first & make sure there is
no spilled antifreeze where they are playing. It never seems to me to
that I should stop warning of this dangerous product-I guess knowing how
little it takes to kill a dog is so scary to me that I must keep reminding
everyone! I was thrilled to learn that New York passed a law requiring
pet owners to provide certain required shelter for any dog left outside!
There are severe fines for first offenders & if the law isn't followed
it permits removal of the dog! I know this doesn't apply to any of my
spoiled buddies but many of you have told me about people they know or
neighbors that leave their dogs out with no shelter, food or water. Now
you have a law to help when you report the owner!! As for the
cats during this awful weather--well, much to your dismay many of youhave
been getting my Lucky Kitty Lecture! Yesss- I know I can be a pain at
times, I can tell by the lowering of your ears & the hmmmphs I get--
sigh. But I can't help thinking about the poor kittys out there who have
no home & are suffering thru this weather--- ooops--here I go again--sorry!
I will work harder on trying not to remind you!
