R.I.P, Soppy 1991-2008

Last night my cat Soppy passed away in my arms. He would have been 17 this March. He has lived a good life and was with me when I first moved out on my own. He has been through a lot and we have had a lot of “good times” and great memories to show for it. He was never really sick and only went to the vet once for illness. His body just could not keep up with his spirit. He came to me on St. Patty’s Day back in 1991 and he left this world on Valentine’s Day, 2008. He was into holidays I guess.

May he rest in peace. I like to think he is somewhere with a nice view of some birds. Hang loose my friend.

Still Kicking (Barely)

You’ve probably been wondering where I’ve been. Come on, admit it. Well I was hit with THE sinus infection from H-E-L-L. Actually, it began with a sinus infection but the 3 hour wait to see a doctor via Urgent Care is probably what did me in. There were dozens of people that were very sick also waiting to be seen and I just don’t think my immune system could ward off all those other “germies”. Stayed home for three days and had to come to work today to teach a class. Now that I am here though, I see that there is only ONE person enrolled. Why was this not cancelled???? And on Valentine’s day no less! I am tanked up on meds and will muddle through it I suppose but I am not happy about it!

Also, as I was home sick, it became apparent to me that my dear feline friend of almost 17 years, is really on his last legs. He does not appear to be in any pain but he has stopped eating and drinking now. I will have to keep an eye on him and at the first signs of distress I am going to need to make a decision. Please keep him in your thoughts. He will be 17 years old on March 17th and was with me when I first moved out on my own. He has been a good friend and has been through lots..including the L.A. Riots, the Northridge quake, the So. California wildfires. He has seen it all!

In spite of everything.. it is HEART’s day! Have a wonderful Valentine’s Day and spend it with someone you care about.

Till tomorrow..
