Windows are open -- life is better


My abscess is healing nicely and I'm feeling much better. Thanks for all the well wishes. Hurricane Matthew passed by us with few issues locally. We had heavy winds gusting up to 52 mph, and hard rain steadily on Saturday. In Columbia we had about 240 trees down and 31 roads blocked, but we were unaffected. Today was a prefect day, so nice that we had our windows open and enjoyed some fresh air.

During my illness Maggie was acting weird. Mom and Dad decided she had bruised her paw pad or tweaked her back left leg because of how she was behaving. She seems to be moving better now, but Mom also noticed that she was down about two pounds (now 7 1/2) which caused some concern. We are now trying out some wet food to try to get a little weight back on her, but so far it's Josie and I who are benefiting from the wet food. Dad bought 12 different brands and styles and we are taste testing them. We'll let you know our verdict once we've tried them all.

We're glad you're feeling better now, Jasper. We hope Maggie is okay. And we're glad Matthew wasn't too bad for you.

I'm glad you are feeling better, Jasper and that Matthew did not do damage to your 'hood. I hope Maggie feels better soon!

We hope everyone continues to improve. We're glad y'all were safe from Matthew - we are in Fayetteville, NC so we took some hits, but purrsonally we're ok.

Taste-testing? That sounds like fun! Glad you're better and hope Maggie is better soon. Good that you were all safe during the hurricane, too!

So glad you are feeling better Jasper.
WE didn't fare as well from Matthew. We're just getting back to some normalcy here!
Hope Maggie feels better very soon.

Please get Maggie checked out really well including blood tests! Our cat started losing weight. We thought it was diet related. We changed his diet. He ended up having small cell carcinoma! I am trying not to scare you! It might just be the food but after losing my kitty at age 15 years old and having to deal with chemo and hhelping him not get miserable with it, I just want to try to protect you from having to go through that! Please keep me posted.
