welcome!! poor oscar, having to go through all of that pain and such, when that leg was obviously wanting to be gone. he will do fine on three legs - although we'd recommend you keep him a little confined/controlled for the next two weeks until the incision is healed and sutures are out. the pain meds can make our pups loopy, and it takes a (More)
we remember the shock of learning of gayle's cancer, and then the second diagnosis of melanoma. writing about your experience is very important for you, and for us. we don't need to dwell on the heartbreaks, but we need to acknowledge them and give ourselves permission to feel the pain. charon & spirit gayle (More)

    This will be my “go to” page when I need a smile 🙂

    Would now be a good time to siggest to anyone. still eating lamb to reconsider???

  5. This tribute blog is lovely. What spirit Jill had and what humor and grace she showed along with Erica and Jack. Wishing both Jack and Jill the sweetest catnip scented dreams with sunlit meadows to romp in and butterflies to chase.

  6. I just saw this in the newsletter and my heart just broke. Erica and Jill some of Shooter’s biggest supporters and she has always been here for everyone else. What a beautiful memorial for a beautiful and brave kitty. Jill will be sorely missed. Thank you for chance to know you.

    Luanne & Team Shooter

  7. OMD or OMC in this case – we are soo very sorry to hear this!

    Even though Jill was a cat she was my hero! She definitely taught us how brave cats can be!

    Erica – please know we are sending love and strength your way – to lose two babies so close together is tough (i just lost two of my K9 brothers and my mom still has bad days!)

    So live each day as Jack and Jill would have wanted you to – they are still with you in your heart and no one can take that away!

    Licks and Love
