All of those little moments

 Facebook can be both a blessing and a curse when it comes to showing your memories. It recently shared this 2014 photo of Benny.


Benny used to "fold himself up" when napping, and it sure was cute. I can't remember the last time he'd done that. At least a year, maybe more?

There were other things he'd stopped doing as he'd gotten old---he didn't climb the stairs up to the bedroom anymore (probably too painful), he didn't want to sit on laps (same), and he no longer wanted to see what you were eating (he used to try and grab Jim's hand with his paw).

Despite being sad and missing him, I also am content. I have no regrets with anything related to his care. Even the timing of his passing was right. And that is something to celebrate. He lived a long, happy life.

"Sadie's" new Halloween blanket

Sadie: Mom found this Halloween blanket at Walmart over the weekend. She said she loved the kitties that were on it.


 I think mom bought it just for me, though.


It's so warm and cozy. I hope she never puts it away!

I'm delighted to show you this small cat pin. It has brown rhinestone eyes. He cost a whopping $2.30.

We like the cooler weather

Ringo and Lucy like to cuddle up with me when I'm reading a book. It's so wonderful.

Lucy is resting on my leg/hip, and Ringo is curled by my stomach.

Update on Sadie

 It's been a little more than a month since Sadie's dental. She is doing well. She's out and about a lot more, and is more playful. With the cooler weather lately, she loves being on my lap during the evenings.*



* While Sadie doesn't mind if I color or crochet while she's on my lap, she dislikes if I'm on the phone. She'll often growl!

Jim has a new coworker

For three years, Jim has worked from home in our office. Benny occupied the couch most of the time. With Benny's absence, I was concerned that the open couch would be a daily sad reminder.


Ringo to the rescue!


He has started sleeping on that space (it probably helps that Benny's heated bed is there). It makes me happy. He was totally not wanting me to take any photos, though.



Mom, I'm trying to sleep here!


Ringo loves computer lap time

  Can you work from home forever, mom?
