Sunday Blog Hop

Welcome new furriends from the Sunday Blog Hop!

May I present Lagniappe, 14, my recently adopted foster cat. 

Her mom was 94 and had to enter hospice care. So Lan and I formed a new family.

She has a passion for her Turbo Track.

and her nip carrot too. We also have a crossiant around here someplace.

She's a very sweet girl; we are still learning each other. 

The rest of the story....

I'm happy to have an opportunity to take care of this gentle ladycat, but I was not expecting to adopt due to my current financial circumstances, and especially not a cat who is also medically needy (liver problems). The lady's petsitter asked me to foster her for two weeks while details got sorted out, and well, here we are. There really is no better home for Lan than with me among the people we know, but honestly we could really use the help. The link to our GoFundMe with more details is below. We have already used about half of what we have raised so far. We appreciate whatever our visitors might be able to do, including prayers for her.

Happy Caturday


A full tum, a cat tree and an open window.

What else is there?

Enjoy your weekend, dear furriends.

Good morning! So when I said I would not be a foster fail, I meant it. There are several very good reasons why it's not a good idea.

May I present the newest member of my family, Lagniappe.

The petsitter and I made an arrangement. Technically the cat belongs to her; she will take her to the vet and pay for medical care. She will live with me and I will oversee her daily care, as I have been doing. This is a good arrangement, in fact the only workable one.

Lagniappe did go the vet on Monday. Bloodwork shows elevated liver values. Could be inflammation, could be cancer. She is on medication now, will recheck the liver in two weeks. If needed, an ultrasound. If it is cancer, our time together will be short, but she will know love and care with me, and a minimum of stress. 

I've started a GoFundMe to help with expenses. The last thing I had in mind at this stage of my life was to adopt a cat, because it is expensive and I have difficulties of my own. All donations would be welcome; also, please share with your own social media if you are so inclined. I don't know that many people so my reach is limited.
