The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree

The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree

It was a few days before we brought our cat, Alex, in to have his tail amputated.  He was frantically scratching and biting at the tumor on his tail.  My husband, Marc, and I attempted to stop him from further hurting himself by putting a cone on him.  He wasn’t happy, and neither were we. In fact, we were worried sick.   Marc and I were sitting at our dining room table, both pounding away on our laptops.  Every few…

We are family….

When Marc fell…

Peek-a-Boo… I See you…..

Peek-a-Boo… I See you…..

The night before my husband, Marc, and I were to leave to spend a few nights in Manhattan, we had Alex, the cat’s, favorite dinner, chicken parmesan. We couldn’t resist giving him a little bit. He was asking us so sweetly. Unfortunately, we didn’t cut the pieces small enough for him, and he got sick from it immediately. The next morning, we expected him to be fully recovered. Unfortunately, he wasn’t. Although he seemed very happy and playful, he showed…
