Before we go any further today we want to say our hearts go out to all those of you who have just lost a friend or are about to. No matter how many times we do it it is incredible painful and no amount of words we have all heard will ease it, I have found time and memories help but the pain never goes away completely. We send a hug and Penny sends a "lick" but that's optional.
Today Penny is quiet, no running around and throwing toys. I guess she is just having an off day, she sometimes gives a small whimper but I don't know why, her ears are not hot, her eyes are bright and she is walking okay. Maybe she is just having a teenage "Not bothered" moment.
She did eat, well partly this is thanks to Murphy who it has to be said has no manners. You see Penny did eat some of her food this morning, but left about half, that's okay I thought. When Murphy came in seeing the food he went over, and sniffed. Giving some thought to this smell he put his foot in the bowl and started picking out the bits he fancied, eating them from his foot. Our girl is watching this with a look of "Urg I know where your feet have been, I can smell them from here" Once Murphy had finished with the morsels he wanted he walked past her with an air of defiance, and I think at this point Pen decided it was better to eat it than see what else he may do to it.
She has been out with dad to the shop and was happy to go, in fact she would have been upset if she had not gone. We will watch her and hope its just a day for being quiet. I can get that, how many of us have thought "if I did not have to do this I would just lay down and rest"
Hopefully on Monday I will be able to report with news of her and the snake being together in joyful play.....this noise could never be called harmony.
Thank you all for your messages and good wishes, and penny gifts on her page, have a peaceful weekend and enjoy your friends.

Yes Murphy likes his Cattitude also!
You should see him when he gets into Penny's bed.
He won't move, just lays giving the "cat glare" he does so well.
Mind Penny got the last word she got in his bed, well some of her did anyway, she was about twice the size of the bed. Now Murphy is not sure which bed she is going to want to get into and while he is working it out Penny get's into hers! However Murph has been know to walk past while she is looking smug and give her the Murhpy Paw in the ear!
They are a good team. Ash cat looks on as if thinking "kids"
