My sweet Juliet has went to the Bridge Saturday. 

She'd had a UTI but it was not getting better very quickly. Thursday she threw up once but otherwise seemed okay.
Friday she threw up twice and wouldn't eat.
Saturday I took her to the vet. 
The vet checked her bladder and it was full.

She immediately did an X-Ray. Juliet had 2 stones, but she was "obstructing".
The vet had never seen a female "obstruct before". 
She immediately sent me off to the emergency clinic.
Juliet seemed fine while we waited and then I left her. They told me they would call after surgery.
Instead, I got a phone call telling me that when they took her out of the cage to prepare for surgery, Juliet rolled off and started having problems breathing.
They intubated her, gave her epinephrine and even did chest compressions, but my little girl was gone.
The vet did not know what happened and could only surmise my little Juliet had a congenital heart defect that was never caught.

Memere thinks Juliet is in heaven with Pepere, keeping him company.
Both my mother and I are devastated and Christmas was very hard, to say the least.
The Rescue Lady told me I gave her a very good life for the short time we had her and I know that is true, but I was not prepared to lose her so very suddenly and I miss her very much.

Tattle Tale Tuesday

Loopy will sleep next to me, but not if Juliet is there. 
Juliet will sleep next to me but not if Loopy is there.
I have some very silly siblings.

Silly Boy

The radiator is hot, but Loopy sits on it anyway. He was lying down on it but when Mom picked up the camera he moved.

Easy Like Sunday Morning

It's cold, so I am staying indoors. The other two can run around outside all the want.
 Not me!

FREAKING AWESOME, if you really want to know.
I went into it with this mindset.
"It's not going to go the way you think"
And I was not disappointed at all!
Rian Johnson for the WIN!!!!

Having Fun

Juliet was having fun running, leaping and hopping through the snow.
Loopy had as much fun as well. 
He was just too fast for the camera. lol

Tree Is

Mom and Dad have a pre-lit 7 or 8' Christmas tree that is just too big for Mom to get upstairs by herself.
So she and Dad went shopping and came home with this cute thing.
And once they're certain Loopy is going to chew it, they will put ornaments on it.

Not Sure About This White Stuff

It took a little while but, after investigating, Loopy and Juliet started leaping through the snow like reindeer. It was very cute! 
It is nice to see them having fun in the white stuff.

PlusOne's Ceramics I

This is a mug PlusOne made in his Ceramics I class for Pretty Girl.
His teacher, a world renowned ceramics instructor (PlusOne's words) was so impressed with the glazing on this piece that he took it to everyone to show.

He also told PlusOne he was totally stealing his glazing scheme and that he would give PlusOne credit for it.
Pretty cool, huh?

And this is the mushroom PlusOne gave to Mom.
What's funny about that is Mom's favorite part of Fantasia is the dancing mushrooms in the Nutcracker.

PlusOne also made bowls for Mom, his cousin, and his Memere.

Tattle Tale Tuesday

A Merry Chase

Mom didn't shut the house door tight and opened the entry screen door and Loopy was out the door, down the steps and off and running.
Mom chased him (at dusk) in her slippers and hoodie up and down the street, around two blocks, in people's yards while Loopy led her on a merry chase. A few people tried to help, but the little stinker ran and ran and ran.
And he marked EVERY SINGLE TELEPHONE POLE between here and there.

After fifteen minutes of this, mom FINALLY managed to catch him.
Serious training on coming when called is starting today. I don't think Loopy knows what he is in for.
And I'm not sure he cares.
