Its been over a week since Mom crossed over to the Rainbow Bridge. The neighborhood has changed too! Her other stray kid Patches, has come here only three times for food. Rocky the raccoon's only been here maybe twice. Besides being hot, the cats have stayed away. Got some pictures back and my new icon is Scooter, the cat. He's one lovely handful. He talks, listens, wants to play mouse, with real ones and play ones. and like to go for a ride on your shoulder. But, he's also shy around even me. With the money we're saving from not feeding Mom twice a day, we're back to feeding the birds and squirrels. They really appreciate it too. The squirrels like to actually get into the bowl with the food in it, and sit while eating???? So, now I'm getting ready to once again kick in this lets reduce eating and get oodles of exercise. "GOOD LUCK"
