Welcome to my new blog. I started a cooking and baking blog at thelittlekitchen.net last December and soon quickly found myself wanting to write about more than my cooking and baking adventures so I started this blog. With this blog, I’ll be sharing whatever I feel like.
I’ll start by my introducing you to my pets!
This is Charley, our 5 year old dog. He is a rescue and we adopted him at 4 weeks old (not knowing that he wasn’t 8 weeks old)! He has Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency (EPI), which means his pancreas do not make the necessary enzymes to digest his food. He requires expensive medication that has to be taken with each meal. We’re not sure what breed he is, he has a purple tongue and is black and tan. I don’t know…we think a little bit of German Shepherd, some kind of terrier and maybe even Australian Kelpie (a sheep herding dog). Recently, we have been dealing him losing a little bit of weight and being a little sick. I think we are finally getting it under control after worrying about him for a couple of months.
This is Roswell, our little silver classic tabby. She is about 13 or 14 years old and ever since I have known my husband, he has had her. She was adopted by him and an old friend (Sean, they used to be roommates) at a Walmart near their college. She is a mammary cancer survivor (5 years) but recently we found out that her cancer has returned to her lungs and one of her feet. We were told that she may only have months.
This is Clone. He is our 5 year old, orange mackerel tabby. He is also a rescue, as all of our pets are. We adopted him from the Space Coast Feline Network. You might be wondering why he is underneath plastic…well we had to cover our sofas in plastic because he has been peeing on them! I got a picture of him sleeping underneath the plastic the other day…defeats the purpose!
Here’s a picture of one of our couches:
We have been having a lot of pet stress lately, basically dealing with a one or a couple of problems with each of our three pets. A few weeks ago, we realized that someone was peeing on our sofas. We assumed it was Charley but we were wrong! It was Clone. We have added and changed a bunch of things in the house and we’re wondering if the stress involved with that and Roswell being sick. We have instituted some more changes as recommended by our vet. Anyways, he has gone a couple of days without peeing on the couches and we’re crossing our fingers that we’ll be able to remove the plastic soon!
Sorry for the poor quality in the photos too, they were taken with my iPhone.
