Quickie

I don't have too much to report. We've had a rough week cat-wise. Sam took Squeaker into the vet last Monday and they kept her on an IV to try and rehydrate her. Her kidneys are failing. She is down to about 5 lbs. We brought her home Thursday night with the intention of having all day Friday to be with her. We thought we would be taking her back today for them to put her out of her misery, but she was much more perky and had a good day, so we are just taking it one day at a time. Hopefully she'll make it through the rest of the weekend. We know it is going to be soon and I've already had a few tearful moments with her. She's been my baby girl for 16 years.

Okay, now that I have the depressing stuff over with, my stitching news is that I only have the border to finish for my Exchange Heaven Halloween exchange piece and then it'll be ready to be finished off. No pictures as it is a surprise. So I am stitching, just can't show it.

Hope you're all having a good long stitching weekend.

Oh Jan, I'm so sorry to hear this news. I hope you have a good weekend with your sweet kitty. It's just not fair they don't live long enough. ***HUGS***

I'm so, so sorry about Squeaker. We've brought little ones home after being given that kind of news, wanting them to be with us every possible minute and so dreading having to take them back.

So sorry to hear about Squeaker. I hope you have a good weekend with her.

Having just gone through this myself, we were able to have one extra day with Homer and just that day meant loads to us.

Its still really hard saying good-by.

{{hugs}} to you and your family
