My dear senior diabetic cat Thelma went to The Rainbow Bridge on March 28, 2016. She had developed renal failure and anemia, her poor lungs were filling with fluid, she was so skinny by the end. I adored her, she was a great big gentle scaredy cat who was so patient twice a day every day while getting her insulin injections. I believe she and her dear sister Louise and Pinny Gig the guinea pig are together ATB, having a grand time. <3 They are all missed and still loved.

Retirement Life

I'll soon be going into year 2 of retirement life. And I'm still very contented and happy. I suppose my life is "small" now. But I'm really okay with that. I have chronic health conditions that put some limits on my endurance and mobility. But I still get around as well as possible. And I am blessed to have my two beloved kitties, as mentioned in previous blog posts. Thelly made it through another year. Yayyy!! I get up early to her 5AM meows for breakfast. Sweetpea gets up too, along with me. So by 6:30 or 7 in the evening, I'm tired. I go to bed, watch PBS programs until I'm about to fall asleep. During the day if I don't have dr. appointments or plans with friends, I enjoy using my computer to learn, laugh, stay in touch with friends and family all over the place. I slowly do my household chores every morning, takes quite a while these days. But I have the time so it is all good. Occasionally friends who drive will invite me to go on a lovely day trip, very enjoyable. So this is my report on how I'm doing retirement life. Suits me just fine.
