Soul Kitty

10 July 2017

In 2012 we said good-bye to my soul-dog Korkie. She was with me through some of the hardest times in my life. She was the only one that was with me through it all. Fourteen years, day in and day out, without question. She saved my life. I mourn her absence every day but something happened last week that shocked me.

Emma got sick – throwing up and constipated. We took her to the vet and as I sat on the floor waiting on some test results with her in my lap I discovered that she meant just as much to me as Korkie did.

Don’t get me wrong, I adore all animals. I love my animals like my children but you know when you have that connection — a soul mate. Without warning and in an instant I knew Emma and I shared that connection.

My best kitty ever. I will miss Korkie every day for the rest of my life but I take comfort in knowing that Emma is here.

Sometimes things just happen, and you can’t explain why or how it all fell into place and that is how Louis came home.

We sent in our DNA to 23andMe a few weeks ago, and I’ve received mine and we are anxiously awaiting Michael’s. I am so impressed. It is amazing to see all of the detailed reports, fascinating.

To see where my story started, looking over the “TRAITS” reports. And yes, there is a reason why I drink so much caffeine. GENES.

Have Pet, Will Travel

As RVers we know the stress that can come with rolling into a new place and have to find a vet. Some times it is just a matter of asking a simple question. But, we’ve all been there. WoofTrax knows what that is like so they teamed up with Ask.Vet to provide you 24hrs connectivity to an actual veterinarian by text.

You may know of WoofTrax from their app “Walk for a Dog”, it is my favorite exercise app. Even if you don’t have a pet that requires walking you walk for shelters. You can find more information by CLICKING HERE.

The Hardest Thing

Furkids are our lives, we cherish them and take care of them. It never ends well and the ending never gets easier.

While we were on the fence about whether it was time for Dexter with his dementia making life very hard on us all (with 3 separate biting incidents in the past month or so),  Cinder decided to stop eating, has been sleeping almost constantly, and has started having bladder control issues.

We decided it was best to send them on their way to college with a vet we knew and trusted.  Today was truly a horrible experience.. having to say good-bye to not one, but two of our loving companions.. and things didn’t go smoothly.
