Hi there! Things have been quiet around here but I was sincerely hoping that meant everyone was doing really well!
Bob, I'm glad to hear little Gilbert is still with you and comfortable despite his prognosis. How wonderful that he has had such a good home with you during this time. My girl Violet is doing great! She's such a character and very much a kitten still! She killed a mouse last week (which is horrifying, I've never seen evidence of a mouse anywhere in our house, I'm hoping it got in and she just took care of business and there are no more!) Luckily, she didn't eat it (and I got it before the dogs), just left it at the top of the stairs as a good morning gift for us! I'm glad she's doing well because our Cocker Spaniel with renal failure and 2 bad knees is enough of a challenge at the moment. I can only handle so much at a time. So there's my update! I hope every one is having a happy and healthy summer! Sheri On Thu, Jul 20, 2017, 12:09 PM Amani Oakley <aoak...@oakleylegal.com> wrote: > Not at all related.
