We have been having beautiful weather!! I have been enjoying it.
Sadly, yesterday I had to have poor Gooseberry put to sleep. I had thought he had the AIDS thing but he had the feline leukemia. He had been sick before with lots of congestion. After two rounds of antibiotics he got better but not well. After that he got right back to full blown congestion again. Yesterday the vet did a blood count and he only had 8% red blood cells, which she said was really really low. She said he might get to feeling better with antibiotics but never cured. She suggested that putting him to sleep would probably be the best thing to do. So now he is buried in the flower garden alongside three other cats. I doubt he was a year old even but the vet said his teeth and gums looked much older. She guessed he was 4 or 5 years old. I told her that wasn't possible because he wasn't full grown when I got him last fall. This is the effect that feline leukemia has on them.
Here's a joke I thought was funny!!!
ROSES & HANGING BASKETS
A teenage granddaughter comes downstairs for her date
with this see-through blouse on and no bra.
Her grandmother just pitched a fit, telling her not to dare go out like that!
The teenager tells her 'Loosen up Grams. These are modern times. You gotta let your rose buds show!' and out she goes.
The next day the teenager comes down stairs, and the grandmother is sitting there with no top on. The teenager wants to die. She explains to her grandmother that she has friends coming over and that it is just not appropriate....
The grandmother says, 'Loos en up, Sweetie. If you can show off your rose buds, then I can display my hanging baskets.
