A quick happy/sad moment - this is Big Papi, my 25-lb Maine Coon. We called him the cat-dog because he taught us how to fetch. Papi is a mushball, and was so devoted to me that he started to act out when I got sick and in May, we finally made the heart-breaking decision that I couldn't take care of him while on chemo. He is happy back with his sisters at the breeder's home, nearby, and I miss him awfully, but I try to focus on it having been the healthiest choice for both of us. He was VERY jealous of my orchids!
Not having a great morning so far - will explain in the proper OT thread - but I'm working on my list of things to be grateful for - and there are many.
