Queenie's Quarters

You are now entering Queenie's quarters:

We cordoned off our rarely used upstair's sitting area to be used for fostering along with a spare bedroom behind the screen:

Here is Queenie in her bedroom:

056 We decided to foster Queenie because the shelter we volunteer at believed her to be pregnant.  After she had been with us for about two weeks with no increase in her belly size, we decided to take her to the vet.  It turned out that she is not pregnant after all - which of course is a GOOD thing!  This is especially so since the people who brought her to the shelter also had several kittens with them she had just had :/  If only people would spay and neuter their pets, it would make such a BIG difference!!!

I have put Queenie on Petfinder and set up her spay appointment.  I am so attached to this beautiful, sweet cat that LOVES to talk.  She will make someone a wonderful companion!

Fostering is difficult because you do get so attached to them, but  it does make a difference.  We weren't able to foster during Coco's illness, but beginning to again a few months ago has helped fill the hole left in my heart by Coco's passing.


Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope everyone has a wonderful start to their week :)

One Year Later...Remembering Our Beloved Angel Coco

May 29th, 2005 - March 19 2010

"Do not stand on my grave and weep; I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow. I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn's rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush, I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in the circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry; I am not there. I did not die."
- Unknown

Here is Coco's sister Chanel sitting next to Coco's urn:

Here is Sasha.  We adopted her five weeks to the day after Coco passed away.  She had just barely gotten to the shelter so we had to take her straight to the vet.  The vet said she was five weeks old.

002 I was able to record a lot of great memories and characteristics of Coco's personality in these books.  Making it and having it are very helpful.  Our other pets and Sasha have been good too. Sasha is A LOT like Coco <3

I hope this didn't make anyone sad.  It wasn't meant to.  Thanks for stopping by :)

Hawaii Trip Continued - Green Sands Beach

Botched yoga pose.  It was in the waves and sand - excuses, excuses :D
