Cat people — I belong to two (yes two) cat groups on Facebook. (I know you are stunned.) They are full of crazy pictures and funny stories. Sometimes people ask questions or share information. Some members are very dedicated to cat rescue. This past week one member took in three very small kittens to bottle feed. One died almost immediately with another passing the next day. They all had feline panleukopenia, a very contagious viral disease that kills fast. Even though she had segregated them, some of her other cats caught it. Within days she was over her head in vet bills. The community came together to help out. Animal people are some of the kindest and most generous people in the world. We have been treated with several updates. The last of the babies is doing well. However two older cats are gone.
A sight not seen often – Yesterday we had a pleasant day. I went for a walk and saw real kids playing in yards. Ok only at three houses but I so rarely see that. I considered contacting the Smithsonian to record a dying custom.
Oops! – Does anyone else fall over nothing? During my walk I tripped, catching myself before I hit the ground. I think my ankle curved in but I’m not sure. The street was level with no divots or stones. I don’t know how to fix this.
More bad news – We learned this week that a young relative of a neighbor is not doing well. She was diagnosed recently with cancer that has spread throughout her body. There are many new treatments and breakthroughs but people are still dying of cancer.
Update on my tomatoes – Some of my plants are looking better. I lost the majority of my crop but I will have a few to plant. I can’t figure out why it happened. I did the exact same steps as last year which was very successful. I did catch my cat Morgan breathing on them. I wonder if cat breath is toxic to seedlings.
So how was your week?
