Life is Cat-Crazy!

Our new member, Cleo !

The Book we named Cleo after..
You must read this book if you haven't already.

Am I behind or what? My last post was in June of 2011! Life has been throwing me some
unexpected twists and turns in the last 8 months! Starting with my son in June, breaking his leg at school playing Soccer; one of my cats became terminally ill and crossed the bridge in January.  RIP ~~Half-Ear..We miss you!
But the biggest wrench in the road for me and my family, was my husband having a heart attack the day before Thanksgiving at the age of 49. That was a real eye opener and knowing he died on the table!  But thankfully, with todays modern tech world, the Doctors brought him back!
So the last 3 months, it has been a challenge for all of us. Not only did he have to change his diet, but I had to keep the stress level low! That was the biggest challenge with four young children in a very outgrown home including 3 indoor cats and 2 dogs!!
He is doing very well now, with no damage to his heart from the attack. In April, he goes in for a stress test on the left side of his heart which is slightly diseased. *Fingers and paws crossed*

 During this ordeal, I think God sent us a lil kitten to keep us laughing!  A week before Christmas,  I recieved the phone call from a friend, "There is the cutest homeless kitten on my porch, and she won't leave! She is skinny and hungry.  We are leaving for vacation for 2 weeks and it is so cold out...." That's all it took..I was suckered! Of course intentions were to fatten her up and give her a new home! Yeah, right!! She's a permanent member to our ever so growing family. Her name is Cleo! If you have ever read the book, "Cleo"  by Helen Brown; then you may understand where she got her name! She has been a delight and she brought laughter in our very stressed home. How could I give her up when she made us love her!?

I have been able to keep up with my weekly comic for Life With Cats along with a few other drawings! So please take a look in my gallery, I will add some of the popular comics along with a few other drawings of people's beloved pets.
Thank you for stopping by..
God Bless..and remember Life is short and you never know where it may take you!
So, Hug the ones you love, including your furry ones!
