Flower Friday and Some Updates

We join Rosy for Flower Friday. Because she is super lazy and hasn't taken new pictures still has some beautiful rose pictures from Oregon, we are sharing one of those! 

Some updates:
Phod has allergies and will be going on a new treatment to help his ears. We will talk more about that later.
Looks like cousin Emma is moving in for about 6 months in the New Year. This gives us some time to prepare!

We look forward to catching up with you all soon! We have been doing some reading without commenting. Lady has lost some of her reading time to her physiotherapy exercises she has to do everyday!

Updated: Ear Troubles by Phod

Dear Friends,

As you know I am a very good boy. I listen. I love my my people and my LeeLee and my Precious.

I have a bit of a problem with being itchy. Lady and Man changed my food to a yummy fish food and that seemed to help a little. However, I have one itchy spot that is very itchy. It is my right ear.

I have had ear infections before and Lady and Man have done their best to keep my ears clean, but this right ear has been very itchy. I have itched it so much Lady says it is now a bloody mess. So now when I am home alone, I must wear the lamp shade. It is not even Halloween!

I am the saddest boy ever.


Editor's note: One day of the cone while we were at work and you can already see his ear healing. I am hoping he will only need to wear it for a few days.

Editor's update: This morning it was very swollen so the Man and Phod are off to the vet. Paws crossed.

Mischief Monday - Mouse Relocation Express 2017

Hello fellow animals lovers,

The express being washed out for the next customers
As may occur in many of our homes, as the weather gets cooler, some of our critter friends, mainly mice decided it is time to move in. We never had a mouse problem when our cats were alive. The winter after they died we caught 32. Hailey would like to go on record and say two of those were her catches.

The mouse season has begun. To date we have been able to happily relocated 2/3 mice who have made it into our humane trap. The first customer somehow got stuck and was seriously injured, and was helped to the bridge. The other two rode the rails together. At about 3:30 am last Thursday, Hailey raced loudly to the kitchen (the express is kept under the sink). She was carrying on such that the Man got up and looked and saw we had two passengers. They had to wait for the car to leave around 6 am where they were driven a few kilometres away before teas was served at home. If you release them near the house, they just come back in.

We will see how many mice we relocate this year!

Express waiting for next customers
