True Love

This is how evenings have been spent the past few nights at our house...

Just a little cuddling...

 Just a little cozy...

Fester has decided there is no reason to be afraid of a dog...not this dog anyway.
Gypsy loves the attention.  True love!

An Awesome Anniversary Card to share

We received this adorable anniversary card from my dear friend MA Evans from Salem, CT.  (If you look back in my blog you will see another fabulous card from her also)  The card is 100 times more awesome in person than this photo shows!  It is so dimensional....so vintage...so distressed...so me!
Notice the "love me tender" cut out and strategically placed around the number ten. So darn clever. Her talent amazes me. She hand dyes her own ribbon and she also pasted our tiny photo in the Tim Holtz photo strips...Thank you dear friend!

After a tough weekend it's time to focus on things I am thankful for.

In one day we lost and buried a cat trying to do the right thing and spent $150 doing it...but more devastating, hubs was laid off from work. All in the same day.

Its supposed to only be for a month or so but that doesn't make it any easier. But we've been down this road before and we have weathered much worse. I need to focus on the good things so this doesn't get me down. It tried...

I've decided for the rest of this month I'm focusing on all the good things in life - I am so very thankful for and these two best buddies above always lift my spirits.

A Huge Disappointment

After posting yesterday about our new spare cat who adopted us, I am so sad to say the vet called earlier this morning to deliver the bad news - Rocky has Feline Luekemia. A very brutal, contagious disease in cats. Most prevalent in strays/abandoned cats...we were just get attached to him. What a sad, sad day for us...

An Odd Fellow

Meet our spare cat.

He just showed up one day a few months ago. He'd come and go alot, but has finally decided after much exploration that this was the new home he chose.

He sleeps and hangs out on our patio now - never to leave. He is the oddest looking cat I have ever seen. He has an oval face - and his color is unusual.... his front end doesn't match his back end. He starts out a tan stripe and ends up with a racoon tail... as gray as it can be. Hence the new name ... Rocky.

We've decided since he isn't going anywhere - he is ours. So that means a trip to the vet to get "nuetered". No idea how old he is but he is the most loving cat and loves Gypsy which is a requirement at our house. Our motto is "Once we pay the vet bill he is ours"....
