Saturday, August 17

Some of the check ups are yearly physicals. Some are rechecks on heart murmurs. Ming will have his x-rays checked as will Anna Marie. Puzzone's right eye will be looked at as will Pania's eye also. Busy, busy morning!

We have 90% of the Day Sale items now sent out. There's just a few yet waiting on payment! When you receive your order and if it's incorrect, please don't hesitate to let me know by e-mail. We aim to get each one of them correct! We had a mystery yesterday. Couldn't figure out why this one particular order wasn't right. Turns out, we have 2 viewers with the exact same name and they both ordered items for the Day Sale! But, we now have that fixed!

You may see Neko and Patches here this weekend--we are kittysitting for them! Thanks everyone for your wonderful support and good thoughts. It means a lot to me. 

Hankster--what a cutie!
