Our Cats after Release:
1. Paris (TX not France): Terrance, Emmie, and Tony went to this garage. They are all still around, eating and using the litter box. A large DEAD RAT was found on a piece of equipment in their barn. It had teeth marks in its neck. Cats are working!
2. Justin: Mama Kitty, Cam, and Kiz went to this shed with a large motor home. All have been seen going in and out of the shed window. GOOD STUFF! …and the rat poop is gone!
Calls/Emails: NO INTERNET AND PHONE!
Got up on Saturday morning to a dead router that will not reconnect. GEEZ! Of course, I called Frontier but someone is going to have to come out. You don’t realize how much you use it until you don’t have it: call the remote number to check phone messages; cannot go to MapQuest to look up an address for a relo; no TV; cannot pay bills online; etc. I am getting a lot of junky stuff done – filing, database updates, and cleaning equipment – but it certainly is boring. Went to Neighbor Nancy’s house last night to watch TV and have a martini – well there are “some” good things!
BMG: Upper Respiratory Infection
Everybody is seeing the URIs this month. The SPCA has had an outbreak and the Lewisville shelter seems to always be having it. I am holding a nice cat “Junior” that had a Convenia shot over a week ago but is still sneezing. I will get him a second shot this week and get him placed. He will be going indoor to Quinlan.
OMG: Turtle with a Cracked Shell
POOR TURTLES! All they want to do is get across the road but someone always seems to hit them. I always stop to get them from the road if I can. This one had a cracked shell and was up-side-down. There was blood on the concrete and it was still fresh. I put him to the side and turned him over. Maybe he was not dead and will recover. I can just hope for the best.
