Let’s hear it for PETS!
During this tough time, I’ve discovered that the only real consistent part of my life, other than friends, is my three rescues: Jersey, 13 1/2-year-old Shih’Tzu; Bella, eight-year-old cat; and Dexter, a seven-year-old cat.
You may remember Dexter, as he’s been on Sydenham Current before! Details, below:
Jersey gets me out. Loves to walk daily and she loves my boat.
And hates the water… go figure.
The cats are a different story.
Both are indoor cats, both are cuddly, smart, loving and affectionate.
But, they don’t always get along with each other.
If I want to nap or sleep at night, I have to move at least two of them, just to get INTO bed!
All four of us sleep together all night, despite the loud purring and snoring.
I have to get Jersey out of bed EVERY morning.
Living with cats has been a sharp learning curve for me.
I had never had a cat, didn’t want one, and never liked them.
Now, I’d be such a mess if anything happened to any of them.
If you have pets, treasure them.
