An update! (long time no talk)

Hey everyone!

I know I have been away for a long time - I'm sorry! In my other life I'm a bride to be, and it's taken over my life! The good news is that I'm finally tying the knot in a month, so I should be back to normal (and back to pets.ca) after that - if you'll have me of course!

I wanted to fill you in on what's going on with my furries..

Jake and Alley are still getting along fine. Our little Ethel is still in her own room. We took her off of the Clomicalm as it wasn't doing anything for her aggression problems, and she actually seems much happier - she's playing a LOT more, and so we'll just keep it going day by day. Once things calm down around our household we'll try to keep up the introductions.. There's still a lot of hissing and growling going on (mostly by tough guy Alley), but I'm hoping there will be a light at the end of the tunnel (it's a LONG tunnel).

As for my stray Pickles - well, she raced into our garage on Saturday night and in the wee hours got to celebrate Mother's Day without even being a year old She gave birth to three kittens - unfortunately one of them didn't make it The other two seem to be doing fine, so we're caring for the brood and hoping that we can find homes yet again for the kittens. Pickles has them in the drawers of a cabinet in there.

We're going to try and get more of the neighbourhood cats fixed - money has been crazy tight right now, but I can't stand to watch these cycles continue! It makes me so sad for these little guys..

Anyway, hope things are well for all of you - I will promise to do my best to check in with all of you and catch up on all that I've missed!

p.s if this posted twice I'm sorry - it's been awhile!

Hey stranger! Nice to see you. Are you getting nervous yet? The big day is looming.....
It's nice to know that Ethel is still around. I have often thought of her and wondered how she was doing. The hissy/growly thing is still a pain, isn't it? Ms. Ally is a toughie for sure!
Poor Pickles. :sad: I have lots of faith you will be able to find homes for the babies. I know how hard that is. And many kudos to you for wanting to do something to help with the overpopulation. It's too bad you can't get the rest of the people in your area to go along with you.
Don't be a stranger, ok?
Assumptions do nothing but make an ass out of u and me.

We can stick our heads in the sand for only so long before it starts choking us. Face it folks. The pet population is bad ALL OVER THE WORLD!

Nice to see you back for a bit. That Alley, she's on hard nut to crack huh? Hopefully, after things calm down for you all Ethel and Alley can come to an understanding.

That's terrible about Pickles. Poor little girl, she's just a baby still herself.
There are only two rules at my house: House rule #1. Cats rule. House rule #2. See rule #1.
