My cat passed away in my arms on very early Saturday morning. Fortunately, she went quickly, but I miss her. She was the last of my tail-less kitties and there is only one kitty remaining from the litter. I'm worried he might be sick because he's lost some weight. I'll have to keep a close eye on him. The old dog scraped her hip on something (probably while lying down) and it scraped the skin and there's a small wound. I'll have to take her in for a bath and some antibiotics. The other dogs are doing well at least. The youngest one likes to play with the chiweenie & instead of getting upset when she goes into the room with him, he gets excited and wants to play. But he gets out of breath quickly since he's overweight. The younger one is good about it and patiently waits for him to catch his breath and resume playing. I've basically just been having to clean up after the pets & take care of my mother. Walmart came out with some potatoes that have already been washed, poked, & wrapped in microwave-safe plastic & instructions for microwave cooking are on them. Six minutes in the microwave and then mash & add butter.
