Farewell Fellow Mancat

(It's an old picture, but once of the better ones I have of him...)

I have some sad news to pass along today. Dude Newman has run off to the Rainbow Bridge. He had developed cancer and was really suffering towards the end. Even then he refused to 'settle down' and just go live inside more often. So his owners brought him in and helped him let go of all of the pain he had been having. He was almost 13.

While he wasn't a 'regular' on the blog, and I wasn't particularly fond of the lug, he did make Mombean happy while he was her cat, and it always made her smile when she saw him around the neighborhood. According to her, he was 'a really good cat'. How can I argue with that.

Take care, dude. You know who you're supposed to check in with when you get up there. I'm counting on you.

So Where Were You, Mr. Q?

Busy, to say the least, can't you tell?

It's been busier than a bunneh in a strawberry patch, but things have settled for the time being. Here's the 'quick' rundown, mostly in order: (starting from about 6-7 weeks ago)

  • MomBean got pinkeye that turned into a case of shingles in her eye. She got better.
  • The house got struck by lighting and it burst a gas line. The beans (and Tucker, I was already outside) had to evacuate at 10:30pm and stay the night in a hotel. The surrounding neighbors had to get out too. Thankfully the beans are okay, and a bunch of green papers later the house is too. (Roof damage, the entire gas line had to be replaced, the a/c got an arc hit...)
  • MomBean's shingles came back for another week due to the stress. It sucked, and she got better. GrandBean was down to visit that time and took care of things so MomBean could recoup.
  • But, MomBean has had some health issues surface within the last month, and it's been a rough on her. But the good news is that (hopefully) her vet has figured out what it is and they can start treating it/her. Something about her Eye-roid is shot and it's giving her hell.
  • And the biggest news, (that Millie has been ever so quiet about), is that come Halloween there'll be a new bean arriving. It's made some of the above more difficult, but so far so good.

Now if you need me, I'll be getting back to that nap...
