Thank you all so much. Since I'm at home with that computer, here is his holiday photo, which I took for his family when I was sitting for him back during the summertime. He's just so cute.

Thanks to everyone who is thinking of Oreo. He is having a bit of a tough time of it, I'm afraid. He came through the procedure all right, but he has been scratching at the incision and feeling bad. He's doing a bit better today but still needs all the kind thoughts you can send him.

I feel very sad for his family.

Thanks again for all the healing wishes and thoughts.

I saw Oreo's Mom this morning... he is not looking great, he is on special pain medicine, and more antibiotics, but he is beginning to act like his usual self, she says. Busy and demanding. So that is good news. Everyone at the vet's office just loves him. He is quite the charmer.

The not great news is that they will travel soon, and he will have to travel too, so he won't like that. It could be stressful. I would offer to take care of him while they're gone, but I'll be travelling also.

My boys are doing OK, and I am knocking every wooden surface available that they stay that way. Their only problem right now is that they need their toenails cut and they hate that and I do too. I'll let you know if MoonPie manages to bite any of my appendages off this time. Fingers are better than carrots during mani-pedi time, apparently.

Thank you! :) I was proud to have them all still enough together for a photo.

Sadness today... My little men this morning... One of the pet sitters came in today before I came to work and three of the boys (not Smokey, of course) came running up to see if there was food to be had... so sweet and trusting. It just kills me to think of leaving them for the holidays. I'm already having separation anxiety. And it hasn't happened yet. The pet sitter for the first part of the holiday will not call me back, and it is really bothering me. I would just fire her but she already has my keys. It is beginning to drive me crazy.

Also, a year ago today is the day I lost Jester as a result of bladder stone surgery. I would post a picture but there are so many already of him in this chronicle, of him with Smokey. I still miss my sweet man. He was one of a kind. Here's a video of him with Smokey, enjoying some time outside. If you want to see him.

I was looking at my calendar book today, and saw that Monday, the 14th, is Louie's one year anniversary here with us! We are very proud to have him here, and are so glad his family decided to put him up for adoption on Craigslist. He's a special little man. He's waiting for dinner right this minute. Yay for Louies!
