Princess, so sorry to hear about Tillie. I can honestly say I know just how you feel, because that is what happened when I had Charlie. He abused Cheerio so that she got to the point she was peeing all over herself. He had to go. Alone, he was a wonderful cat and I miss him and his crazy antics to this day. I was fortunate tho, in that when I told DIL I was taking him to a shelter that day, her mother agreed to temporarily take him, even tho there were other cats in the house. The temporary home has lasted about 3 years now, with Charlie sleeping on the woman's head nights! He's not the alpha cat there and slipped right into whatever spot they wanted him. You have to put Spencer first, as I did, Cheerio.
Speaking of which, I'll just briefly mention that Harry was waiting out there this morning, for his breakfast. Guess we're back in the old routine.
Kargiver, you've had so much stay-over company - I wouldn't worry too much about the house, but I do know exactly what you mean by "let things go" when you're not feeling good. I couldn't believe the mess my rooms were in, and there is just me here.
What a wind last night, huh? I always put my trash out the night before in case the trash men come before I am up, dressed, and ready to drag it out in the morning. Got up this morning to see one of the bags had blown right on the driveway boundary line between me and the guy next door (the ones who park in my driveway). Will be interesting to see if when he goes out to get their morning coffee, he will stop and put it back with my other trash, or just angle his car to back up around it. Want to take bets?
Have a lot to do today, so won't dilly dally on the computer this morning. One, well maybe, two games of MahJong, and then I'm off to the shower and getting my day started.
