Oh, you poor thing. You are certainly having a terrible time at the moment. It's unbelievable that you had three cats sick at the same time.

I remember when Friedrich became sick and died - is it really three years ago?!

Raoul has lived a long and happy life. He's had a wonderful family to look after him, and who will continue to care for him until the end. Pixie is obviously a fighter too. How cute she looks in her little shirt!

Take all the time you need to get through this and your human family matters. Remember to take care of yourself too. Real life always takes precedence over the virtual one.

However, here are some virtual ((((((hugs)))))) from afar.

Yes, already three years ago! That was one heck of a week: Friedrich died on the 21st, Glen's sister Carol on the 22nd, and the 23rd was Rachel's birthday. I felt we were nearly reliving it.

Pixie is feeling better this morning, which is great because Raoul needs her. Just as she was with Friedrich, she's a very soothing, gentle companion for a sick cat. Perhaps it's all her mothering experience. She's a regular Nurse Pixie. Angelo means well but he's such an oaf he'll lie all over the invalid and not even notice they can't breathe or get up.

Thanks for the virtual hugs, Maewyn. And regards to your own little kitty.

I think it's wonderful how Pixie looks after Raoul like that. She certainly hasn't lost her mothering instincts. I think having her there when you are away is just what he needs. Nurse Pixie indeed!

I meant to mention earlier that I loved the pictures you posted. I love the group pictures where they're all snuggled up together. I've always loved Siamese. Some of the earlier pictures remind me so much of my Cinda from long ago (I can't believe she's been gone for 26 years).

If Rachel doesn't feel right in her studies, she's done the right thing before going too far. Does she know what she would like to do, or does she just want to take a break before making any decisions?

Was Cinda a Siamese, then? (Yes, I love the snuggling-together pictures, too. We've got a hundred of them.)

Rachel thinks she wants to enlist in the Coast Guard. Actually, that's just what her dad did when he was about her age. By the end of his first year of college he realised he was sick of the classroom study, wanted to travel and "learn to do something". Thinking of joing a service, he joined the Coast Guard. Whether she does it and enjoys it the way he did we won't know until we know, but it's a good service. Maybe, even if she doesn't find her vocation in that service, she'll at least get a better idea of what she'd really like to do.
