Kristofur crossed over the Rainbow Bridge on Monday. Our vet thinks he had intestinal cancer. We tried everything we could to bring him back from the brink including hand feeding him but nothing really helped. Cats seem to have the ability to hide their illness until the very last possible moment and Kristofur was no exception. He will be sorely missed. :'(

As Bing Crosby said, it's been a cold, cold winter! I'm sure I don't need to tell you. From what we have seen on The Weather Channel, it's been an insane winter everywhere. We have gotten our normal amount of snow, which is to say Snowmageddon 2014-2015. But the cold, oh, the cold! And somehow with this record breaking cold, we have finally did something we've been planning for a few years now. (Takes us a long time to decide on things. Lol.) We made our porch a four season room with the installation of a gas stove powered by a remote control. What a great way to enjoy winter from the comfort and warmth of the inside. The great thing is, just like the gas fireplace, if we lose power it works on a pilot light so you will always have the heat. Woot! Here are some pictures since we installed it. Needless to say, the cats love it...and the birds and the squirrels...

Come onnn, spring!
April 1, 2015
This past winter and spring have truly been the Seasons from Hell. Truly. We had a record cold February and then March didn't seem to realize it was time to wake up! Right now we are looking at a few decent warm days starting tomorrow...according to the weather peeps. We'll see. I have a few pictures of Patty who was recently in my lap and conveying exactly how we have all felt about this weather! My friend Mike said it best. He called it Patty's "depressed teenager 'Everything sucks!' sprawl"! Lol.

All is not bad, though. My cereal smiled at me this morning! How often can a person say that? And no, this was not manufactured. It was like that as I put the spoon up to my mouth and since I was looking at my iPad and it was convenient to take a pic, I did!
Our old geezer cat, Stormy, passed away at the ripe old age of 16 on Wednesday. He would have been 17 in three months. Although he had hyperthyroidism for years and more recently, kidney issues, it was still devastating to lose him, as it is with all our pets. We did a lot for him and I know he had a good life. We really miss our little guy who always greeted us with his hello meow as we entered the garage. Rest is peace, Stormy. We loved you! <3
Watch Stormy at his prime seven years ago when he went snow shoeing with us!

We haz a sad today. :( One of our favorite actors, James Best, passed away at age 88. A lot of people knew him as Sheriff Rosco on Dukes of Hazzard but we never watched that show. What we remember him from was his portrayal as Jim Lindsey in the Andy Griffith show; his many appearances on The Twilght Zone; and also a more recent role as Paddy Kerrigan in a made for TV movie called The Sweeter Side of Life. (A movie which was written, directed and produced by his son-in-law Michael Damian formerly of The Young and the Restless, the Snoopynut's favorite show!)
