Friday April 4

It worked!  I'm still beaming! Our electric went down last night (right in the middle of BOXES) for about 10-15 minutes. It had just went down for about 10 seconds and va-roooom! The Generator (Jenna Radar) kicked in, lights came on, furnace continued on, water still ran, Kitty Kastle lit up--just perfect! It was so wonderful to hear that machine noise and everything working! When the electric came back, the Generator simply turned off and all continued on. Thank you again, my friends, for making this possible!

Happy Birthday to Merri! She is now 7 years old. Merri came from Long Island along with Jersey. They both arrived 7/16/13.

Fondant had her surgery spay yesterday. She was a bit low-gear last night. She had an unusual "happening". Only one uterine horn could be found--should be two. After exploring her entire abdomen, the vet assured me that she indeed only had one. So, instead of a tiny incision, hers is a bit bigger for the exploratory. She's had soreness meds last night and this morning and doing much better now. I just checked on her and she was eating her breakfast! 

The Jemima babies are getting bigger by the day. They really are so sweet. I will always appreciate the hard work that mama cats do for their babies.  Dora's Explorer kittens are doing good. Kathy/JustMe and Joni (our guests) are doing much of their feedings, which I appreciate. All 5 of these babies seem to be doing good too, even Dexter! Francis is definitely the investigator/wanderer of the litter! 

I saw both Alma and Coralie get into the litterboxes all by themselves yesterday! It's a wonderful thing. Putter is hanging in there--very much is a quieter boy right now and is sleeping alot on the couch. He loves to be held and petted. Jersey, August and Jackson are getting so much braver and coming out more to be talked to. Jersey liked his tummy rubbed last night! Joey too is putting his brave shirt on and is enjoying the attention. It's wonderful what time and attention can do!

The Covies will be out and about today--hope they stay out of the lake-puddles. There's so much water laying around. The Barnies have been entertained by a new goat. She's an Alpine goat and her name is Pickles. Her and Butter have become friends. 

Putter asked me to send this thought to you (you know how he loves you all)--LIVE every moment, LAUGH every day, LOVE beyond words. Oh, he also said, "The wise sterilize".  Putter has spoken.
