Not bad day

Well I had a good time with my mother yesterday. We got along very well. We went yard saleing all day. My mother loves yard saleing too. I guess it runs in the family. I spent the night with her in the motel with the kids. There really isnt much room in my small trailer for her to comfortably sleep. We had a great time. Lasy night we went to see the movie Underdog with the kids. This morning we woke up and went out to breakfast before she left for home. I am worried about her though. She looks so tired and depressed. I am very worried about her.

Today my sister and I went out to the store. On the way there was this free box so we stopped and looked in to see what it was. Here is was a little kitten. About 2 feet away there was a dead, and half eaten mother cat. All that was there ws the back legs and tail. It was horrible. I almost threw up. I grabbed the kitten immediatly and took him home. He is so tiny. I didnt want another cat but I just couldnt let him stay there in that box. I dont know why people treat animals like that. Our last cat we found under the pavillon in a park abandoned. I cant understand people. I could never dump off any animal like that.

While i was on the subject, I thought I would share this cartoon that I had sent to me. My rottweiler had a rough start as well. My son came home one day and told me that his friend had puppies that she needed to place in homes and he begged me for one. I said no for awhile and then I gave in. I called her and got directions to get up there. When we got up there, we saw the  14 puppies in a tiny pen outside with two big rottweilers, a Chihuahua, and some other smaller dog.  They were in mud with only one tiny dog house for all of them to use. The puppies were so scared. We picked out Bear. We took him home and he was covered in fleas. We flea dipped him immediatly and then went to the Vetenarian the next day the purchase stringer flea medicine.He cried in pain all night. We took him for shots  and care the very next day and the vet said he had a really bad bacterial skin infection. It took a month of antibiotics and lots of skin medicine to clear it up. He still, to this day, does not have hair on some of his body. There is permanent damage to skin and the hair wont grow. He has to have sweaters in the winter. I just dont understand how people can be so cruel. I dont even know why they have pets at all.

I am going to go now and relax after a busy couple of days.I bought the movie "Overboard" with Golid Hawn and Kur Russel at a yard sale. I am going to lay down and watch it. Just looking at Kurt Russel is worth it all. lol Just kidding. As always, Thanks for listening. I hope all is well for everyone.

Hi Christine. I'm so glad you had a good time with your mother. I hope she is okay. It's tough, getting older- easier to be tired and depressed. I'll be keeping her in my prayers.
Hugs,

I am glad that you got a long good with your mother. Sometimes it is so easy to feel like they will always be there. (sigh) I lost my mother 2 days after Christmas 2005. She was very controling, told you just what she thought, loved very much, sometime grippy (LOL), always negative, but my children and I knew that if she could.. she would even die for us. I was an only child. I find myself some days saying.. "Why didn't I ask mom that?" I think that was good staying in the motel with her, sounds like fun. Love them garage sales and auctions, too much!! lol

Wal Mart sells tiny bottles and kitten milk for baby kittens. I found that out when we thought the mamma cat left ours for 2 days. She was looking for a place to hide them. lol That is just terrible about the cat!!! Oh.. poor Bear. I almost named my Lakota, Bear. lol That show is sooo cute.. love it!! lol Prayers, Janie

I am so glad that you enjoyed the time with your mom.  Also it is so hard to walk away from animals that are not taken care of.  You just want to take them all home but that is what we have to do.  You must be a very careing person.  Thank you so much for the forward.  Relax and enjoy yourself today.
