Happy Thanksgiving to all of our friends.
Mom is strict with our diet because Priscilla has irritable bowel syndrome. But why do I have to suffer. I have to eat the same hyperallergenic diet as her. And boy is it expensive. But Mom is afraid if she gives something different to me Miss P will bowl me over and snitch some. She seems sweet, but I know she would do that. So anyway, I think Mom might slip me some chicken on the sly today. That would be heavenly.
Our Gammie fell and broke her hip two months ago and 3 weeks after that fall she fell again in rehab and broke her other hip. Couple that with her dementia and sadly she can't move back upstairs. She's now at a place that will help her heal and be safe. The bad part is we can't see her anymore. Gammie used to come down almost every day and play catch with me. I miss that. And her poor kitties. They are living upstairs by themselves until Mom can figure out the best place for them. They are both 15. Mom feeds them twice a day and spends about an hour with them every day but they are so lonely. Mom was hoping they could live with Gammie at her new place but now Mom thinks it is too small and because Gammie is still using a walker they might cause her to fall again. Mom is so sad about this. They can't come and live with us because we are home alone during the day and I think we would terrorize them. Mom has some work to do upstairs before she can rent the upstairs out again so there is still time for a miracle.
It's so cold today - 4 below and only warming up to 10 by this afternoon. Coldest Thanksgiving in Minnesota in decades. But it is sunny which is something. I see the sun and think I can go outside and run around a bit, but as soon as my tush gets cold I need to come back in.
Have a great day my friends and stay warm.

Hey Guys, long time no write. It has been a busy summer. Today is my birthday. Now that I am 6 I thought I'd better get back in the swing of things and not just catch the ball, catch the ball, catch the ball.
Who am I kidding. I'm always going to be a puppy. But I'm very saddened because my Grammie who lived upstairs and played with me almost every night can no longer live with us. Grammie fell and broke her hip over a month ago and then while in rehab fell and broke her other hip just 2 weeks ago. Poor Grammie. So Mom gave us the sad news yesterday that she would not be coming back here. Because Mom works Grammie has to go live in a memory care unit where she will be safe.
Mom visits her every night after work so Priscilla is more than a little upset that our dinner is later than usual. You know that girl and her stomach.
Mom's biggest concern is to find a great place for Mom and she doesn't know what to do with her two 15 year old cats. Mom would love to have them live with us but Priscilla has an issue with that and we scare the bejezzers out of them. They are way laid back.
Have a fun day - I bet Mom is going to get me a new ball.

What a beautiful day. The sun is shining on us and Mom is home all day.
Mom was cutting the grass out front and a car parked in front of the house had 3 cats in it. It's kind of a warm day and there was a litter box and food in the back and it was parked under a shady tree and the windows were partly open and Mom checked and it wasn't hot in there but it didn't look like there was much water in the bowl. The cats did not look like they were in distress but Mom was still concerned. This car had never parked here before. There was a woman cleaning up a yard across the street for someone so Mom thought she might be the owner of the car. Mom really doesn't like to interfere but when it's critters she does. It was the woman's car and she thanked Mom for coming to talk to her rather than calling someone on her. She said she was watching for when the sun came out. Mom told her she was just a little concerned because it didn't look like there was much water in the bowl. It turns out the woman didn't want to put too much water in the bowl because it might leak into the cage below with the guinea pig in there. Then she told Mom they were all living in the car right now. That is very sad.
Mom told us we should thank our lucky stars that we are well fed and looked after. It would be horrible living in a car. We will pray that their situation changes.
