Thanks, everyone who’s asked after Kara lately. She’s doing okay – she has good days and bad days; she had a really good weekend (RIP Chippy the Chipmunk) and a pretty bad yesterday. We’re having a hard time getting her to eat, and she is SO TIRED of our constantly offering food. She gets fluids, which perks her up, but not as much and not as long as it used to.

This is to say that she’s still with us, she’s still happy most of the time, but at some point we’re going to have to make that decision, and I don’t want to predict when that will be; I’m no good at those predictions. We’re just enjoying every moment we can with that sweet girl.


I’m sensing a little attitude from Jake.

We had some sunshine yesterday, and Archie was happy.

Dewey was also happy (though this picture wasn’t from yesterday; it was some time in the spring).

Frankie’s all “Stop takin’ my picture and open this ding dang window for me!” (PS: If you scroll down to the bottom and click on the link for 2017, you’ll see the post about how we were looking for a home for Frankie. We did this thing where we decided to keep him because he was FIV+ and very sweet, but then Archie had an extended days-long tantrum, and we rethought our decision. Obviously we ultimately ended up keeping him, and I’m glad since he ended up needing all that dental work, and he and Jake are BFFs and he’s a sweetheart even though he prefers Fred to me. WHO DOESN’T?!)

Happy Khal in the sun.

This house used to be on our front porch at Crooked Acres, nearly always occupied by Maxi. Now it’s on the screened porch and is nearly always occupied by Alice. It has a heated bed under that towel, and Alice considers it her safe space, though sometimes Jake will loon his way in there with her (but she’s okay with that, she’s not scared of him.)

Newt wonders where the catnip has gone. (It dies off in the winter and comes back in the spring.)
