Playing with an Otter

This does look like a lot of fun. We need to send Jan over to try this. It looks like good exercise. For her. We'd just like to watch. And make a video of it.

If the video doesn't play, click here.

Jan calls this year - nearly half over now - a year of loss. Of so many things. She is exhausted - physically, emotionally and financially. Things have not been going well and the weather has been miserably hot and humid. She has continued to walk with us, even though she has to stop to rest a lot.

And for the past week she has been sick, barely able to talk a little at a time but as of this morning she can't talk at all. So we're going to take a break.

Have a good Memorial Day weekend.


  1. Oh dear we are so sorry to hear that Jan is not feeling well. WE will send our strongest healing purrs to help...and we hope you do have a good Memorial day weekend


  2. Purrs, and prayers from our house to yours.

    Rest and Recuperate; and get to feeling better soon Jan.



  3. Dear Jan,
    Even though we have never met and are strangers across the interwebs, we are fond of you and your crew and you are special to us. We send you the very best thoughts and you will be in our purrayers.
    Luv Clooney, Neytiri & Karyn

  4. Oh no! We are purring hard for Jan to feel better!

  5. We are very sorry to hear that Jan is so sick. We hope she will feel better soon, and we also hope that June is the beginning of a much better year for you.

    We saw that video on the Nightly News today - too funny.

  8. We are sending lots of purrs & purrayers for Jan to feel better soon.

    Mama says she has felt the same about this being a year of loss. Sometimes it's pretty hard for her to deal. hopefully things will get better soon...

  9. Oh noo.. sorry to hear that Jan isn't well. Hope she feels better soon and regains her voice. Lots of rest and cuddles from you guys!!

  10. Oh poor poor Jan! :-( Me and Charlie are sending her tons of purrs and hugs. Please get better Jan, rest, rest, rest. We hope that things will turn out ok. Look after yourself first. Hugs to all your gorgeous kitties and woofies! take care

  11. Hey Jan,

    Sorry the first half of this year has been such a ruff one for you. Hoping some rest and a change in routine will bring back your health! Sending positive thoughts your way that the second half of the year brings you much good fortune!

    Waggin at ya,

  12. Jan we are sorry to read you aren't feeling up to par. A rest will do you good so we send you some big fat rumbly purrs to help. Actually, if you could manage having a swim with some otters, that could revive you immediately. Dolphins are so passé these days.

    Take it easy Jan

  14. Jan I am so sorry you are not feeling well and I realy hope that you will feel better know that we are thinking of you and send healing vibes your way.. With love carol and GJ xx

  15. I love that video! I posted that on Facebook either yesterday or early today.

    I am so sorry to hear that Jan isn't feeling well and I am sorry the year has been so unkind to her.

    Hoping your Memorial Day weekend is a good one!

  16. Hope today find Jan feeling better. There are some nasty things out there going around. You all need to make sure Jan gets lots of rest so be extra good for the next few days.
    I loved the video, I think that otter had that little boy trained really well.

  17. We are so sorry to hear that Jan is not feeling well. We will send up lots of prayers for her and we leave her lots of hugs. Hope she is feeling well very soon. Hope you all have a nice Memorial Day weekend. Hugs and nose kisses

  18. Thanks so much for your kind words on our blogoversary! Then we see Jan is not well! I send healing purrs to you and Mom send her hugs! Feel better soon!

  19. Feel better soonest Jan!

    I love the video. There is so obviously a real connection between the otter and the boy - and it isn't food, which so many pundits say is why "captive" animals relate to us.

  20. Sending you lots and lots of purrs and prayers that you feel better. Sorry you are so sick. The donkeys will cross their hooves for you too. Take care and get some rest.

  21. Thank you very much for sending so many purrs and headbutts to make us feel comforted and much loved.

    We are sending lots of healing and feel good purrs to Jan.

  22. Others are so cute. I wish we had some to watch here!


Thanks for coming by for a visit. We love to hear from you.
