One step forward and two steps back




Yesterday I was so excited because I saw my pair of barn swallows again for the first time flitting around the big barn looking for a place to build their nest. I dont know why but there one from last year fell down, I thought it was pretty secure but obviously it wasnt. So now they are flitting around singing and looking for a new place. I meant to put that in my blog yesterday but forgot.


This morning our home health aide came in just before 8am and told me that my neighbor had hit and killed my Huggy Cat with her car and not even noticed. I am not going into details here but I am very upset and it is a sad day for me. This was the most loving soft cat I have ever known and came to me about 5 years ago from who knows where with the end of his tail all bloody like it had been shut in a door. I called him huggy cat because when you picked hm up he would lay as flat against you as he could and put his paws on each side of your neck like he was hugging you. He had severe allergies and as a result couldnt hear very well because he was always very congested. I will miss you my little friend.


I may post again later but just wanted to post this for now. I know you arent all cat lovers but my 4 barn cats have been with me a while and Huggy made a great photo subject. I took these threepictures all within the last few weeks.

Sorry to hear about the loss of your kitty, I know how much he meant to you. That would make for a very bad day at my house as well. It's bad enough to lose one without it being as tragic as this. Words cannot express how sad I feel for you!

I'm sorry for the loss of Huggy Cat. I have not had cats for years, and now have two indoor/outdoor cats and one barn cat. Each of them are precious to me and I will miss them when they go.

I'm so glad you have these pictures to remember her by.

How sad! I'm really sorry to hear about Huggy. This makes me glad my two kitties live inside, so mostly I just have to worry about them getting fat. I'm glad you at least have those beautiful pictures to remember him by. You never can replace unique animals like that.

I am very sorry to learn about your cat, Lori. What a shame it is when we lose our best friends and most pets are best friends. I know we still miss our dog, Autumn Eve.

Maybe another will come along and steal your heart.
