Win some. Lose some.

As of December, Ernie has been with us 6 years.
His snore is something you have to hear to believe.

At the end of January a long run of fence was stolen from the rental property, and another attempt was made to remove a door.  Without a perimeter fence the lot is useless to us.  Disappointed, but glad for resolution, we removed all the improvements, including the remaining fence, and we'll use them when we buy a property. 

Our beautiful Lucy died February 19th.  Her passing hit me hard; she was one of my best friends and left us too soon.

17 year old cat Spot has good days, and not so good days. We put a few steps to the roof and a rail on the casita for him.  Both he and Maldi have been enjoying the new views.

Roxy is doing well with the treatments for heartworm.

We call Hazel, Murci and Tori The Heroic Trio.  They play together like this for hours every day.  This Bumi is their favorite thing in the world. 

Same game, different day.

Daisy had a run in with something in the yard during the night.  
She looked like this early in the morning.

It started as a few bumps and a little swelling, then quickly turned ugly.  
She needed an injection of corticosteroid, and some antibiotics.

She's fine now, though we still don't know what caused it.

Steve McQueen had a tiny bit of the same thing, but was likely spared worse by being a complete scaredy-cat.  
Pete & Steve play another round of the ongoing game -who's taller?! (spoiler:it's Steve.)

Xmul visited for a few days.  

Full-on Linda cuteness.
