Sassy Kat and Baby Cory

Last weekend Sassy Kat's friends threw her a retirement party in Paris. Today, with her final post, she officially enters retirement.

We have enjoyed Sassy's creative and fun ideas. Percy will always have a special place in his heart for her, as she took him under her paw when he played in a CCSI production. She invited Rusty to join some of her friends on a cruise. Rusty had so much fun on the trip, he didn't notice he was sunburned until he returned home. And although many find us a bit overwhelming en masse, Sassy wasn't intimidated by our number, so we were occasionally invited to parties as a group.

Sassy, we love you and we will never forget you. Thank you for these past two years of friendship. Perhaps you will send an occasional smoke signal to let us know you are okay. Farewell, for now, our friend!

As often happens in the cycles of life, as Sassy Kat has been closing down her blog, her little sister Gracie has taken over the keyboard. We look forward to getting to know her better. Perhaps she has an adventurous and mischievous streak too.

We would like to thank those of you who hung in for the past weeks and voted for Merci in the Cutest Dog Contest. She didn't make it into the semi-finals, but she is still the cutest dog in our hearts.
An update from Eric on Houdini, the last Lakemore Cat rescued. She has pneumonia --
HELLO ALL ~ My little girl Houdini is doing somewhat better today. I finally got her to eat, Fancy feast Shrimp did it yesterday. Back to the Vets today, she will be surprised Houdini is even alive :o} ~ So am I ~ MANY Purrs of thanks to all Jan’s wonderful readers for donations and PRAYERS ~ She still needs a Home when she is well. Many Blessings Eric

To lighten this post a little, we're going to share a really cute video we found of baby Cory. His dancing reminds us of a human version of Snowball the cockatoo. That's a compliment. We love to watch Snowball keep rhythm.

If the video doesn't play for you, click here.

  4. Thanks for the sweet kind of words about Sassy. You all mean so much to her and also mean a lot to me. We will continue with the tradition of adventures and her cry of "One for all and all for one." We all will meet again someday, this I know.
    I am sorry that Merci didn't get in the finals but every day I did my voting. If I say so Merci is number one to me.
    Love the video, have seen that one before.
    A sad weekend for those that left to the bridge and those that are ill. Thoughts and prayers are with the families.
