So Glad to hear that no new " tragedies" have emerged of late and that Violet loves her catnip!.. I love the image I conjur of her eating a leaf or two and rolling in the Grass looking at you with her little head upside down....  It's been only a few weeks since I lost my buddy Magellin and though it's not with me on a daily basis I only have to encounter a surprise reminder to bring tears to my eyes ( eg... needing to put some meds for myself into a container and grabbing the nearest empty one which turned out to be Jelly's Mirtazapine container... virtually in a second the whole experience came rushing back... attempting to get him to eat..watching him lose weight... syringe feeding him...   Friends ask me " why are you considering doing it again" and all I can say is....  " It feels worse to NOT help than the pain of helping"...  Amani expressed a nice sentiment a few times when explaining to folks why she continues to do what she does... " If the people who care about cats don't help them it's certainly not going to be the people who _ don't_ care about them" ( yes Amani I took a measure of literary license in quoting you...  Hope it's close : ) On Sunday I expect to take home my new Foster... and older " Miracle" survivor of some kind of traumatic encounter( we don't know what)... He was traumatically brain injured and could barely walk when he first came to us..when I drove him to the vet I was positive they would just put him down... but he made a miraculous recovery and is now just the sweetest lap cat you could know... but still not entirely steady on his feet..  In the last few weeks he developed a tumor behind one of his eyes and it is the consensus of two vets that it is a cancer that will kill him in a few months.... ( one of the vets had a cat with the exact same situation and used a combination of Sub Cu injectable alternative meds to keep the boy alive for an extra nine months...  I can't stand the idea of this sweet guy living out his remaining days on the bottom level of cages just sleeping there with little attention until he dies... He deserves to see the sun and to have someone to pet him and know a home for at least a few months....  I'm hoping that knowing in advance of taking him home that the only real surprise would be his actually surviving that I won't have the same level of sadness that my others guys engendered... Be that as it may... I'm doing it.

Just wanted to check in and see how everyone is doing? We've been very busy
here with the end of the school year, holidays, graduations, etc.

My Violet is doing well, she seems happy and healthy although I'm
struggling to find a healthy food that she likes. She loved the honest
kitchen food when I first bought it but now isn't very excited to eat it. I'm going to check out other options at a local pet health food store this
week to see if I can find something she likes.

I got a tattoo for Mo about a week ago. I felt like it was the closure I was looking for and the artist even let me put his ashes into the ink. I know he is always with me now but I'm still very emotional about the whole
ordeal. It's been two months but still feels so raw.

I hope all of you and all your fur babies are doing well, I just wanted to pop on and say "hey". I'm so glad to be heading towards summer and back in
my garden again. It keeps my mind busy and is so cathartic. We planted
catnip for Violet, she absolutely loves it! It's so funny to watch her
bliss out when she eats a leaf or two?

Best wishes,
Sheri

I like that idea of the tattoo, very nice. My baby Skylar is still doing well and healthy.
