Pawsome! Skimming through it now. I see my boy on page 13, yaaaay!!

I plan on reading it more fully tomorrow at work (sssshhh) 🙂

Just FYI, on page 40, the picture is of Joanna and Threepaw, but the caption is “Fredo recovers with good pain management .”

Looks great so far!

Rusty made the book!!!  AWWWW!!!

You are truly an awesome group of people!  This will be a HUGE resource for all of us.

  

Rusty "The Bunnyman" adopted us in 2014.  Aug/Sept 2017, back left leg amputated (HSA cancer).  He remained cancer free over 900 days. Cancer returned as of emergency visit on day 931. 15 days later, he gained his wings 04/18/2020 due to congestive heart failure.  He will always watch over his fellow tripawds and their hoomins with Head Scritches and Sand Paper Kisses.

I just finished  downloading [t (with Purrkins’ help).  ❤

I know it wasn’t  your intent  to make the forums obsolete (kidding😁), , but EVERYTHING.   E V E R Y T H I N G one could ever need to kmow is covered  in this comprehensive  book.😎  It is extensively  detailed and truly seems to address every situation  that can come up during this whole journey,  It truly left no question unanswered.  So I guess  the forums can still be helpful  as a place to post pictures of their kitties 🤣😂

So much of what was written  applies to dog, as well as kitty owners.  Anyone who reads this will be approaching  this journey  with a knowledge  and confidence that can only come from those who have already “lived it”.  The tips provided  here could never be covered  in the “discharge papers”  the dogs and cats are sent home with.

The photos of our kitty heroes  were perfectly placed and illustrated each point brilliantly.   Everything  was explained  with simplicity, compassion, and invaluable  expertise.  I cannot even phantom the work that went into producing this  Your generosity of time, your selfless devotion  to helping others navigate through this  journey is well worth it.   Yes, well worth it. 

To Rene, Jim and Holly, a nonstop  boisterous applause  is in order, as well as sincere gratitude, with numerous “thank yous” sprinkled  in😚😚   

With love and appreciation, 

Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

PS. Groucho  Mark’s would be proud!  Yeah, you have to download the book to see why the reference  was made😉😉

LMAO!!   I’m  such a good Court Jester for the site!😜😝🤪🤪

  I was quickly scanning  through everthing  tavlet last night…..without my glasses.  I thought I saw a quote from Groucho Marx, which actually seemed quite out of character for him to say!!😂🤣

So I can’t  find where the download went on my tavlet right now, but obviously  my eyes deceived me!  Have no idea who I was really referencing 🤣😂

Now that I’ve  screwed up, Groicho Marx would indeed be proud to be referenced  and reintroduced  to new generations  who don’t  even know who the heck  he is and are googling  him!

I hope it got you a couple of extra downloads  from inquiring minds😎😎

OMC Brad, thank you! Yes absolutely we are going to update it, it’s on Jim’s list.

By the way you shouldn’t be seeing that ad since you’ve been a member for so long. If you click the link that says “never see this message again” it won’t bother you anymore.

And HAHAHA SALLY! Thank you and good job finding it! I have looked at the book so many times I forgot it was there! Good eye Ms. Court Jester! clown
