Blind Oskar and Farewell Admiral

Hey, Cyndi here.  We had another post planned for today but Jan hasn't downloaded the photos from the camera yet and something came up that changed our plans.

So I have a fun video for you today instead.  Here is the blind kitten Oskar and the family Christmas tree.  Helping to put a tree together and decorate it looks like fun.  Too bad we can't convince Jan to get us a tree so we can kill it ... I mean, so we can nurture it.

If the video doesn't play, click here.

And this is what came up to change our plans today.  We weren't going to make any more graphcs when there is a loss because Jan put the wrong birth date on the original one she made for Opus a couple of weeks ago.  It's just too easy for her to make a mistake when we're all upset.  But since such a graphic is for a grieving human, we convinced her pride is overrated.

We were shocked to learn the lovely Admiral Hestorb passed away yesterday.   She just celebrated her 14th birthday Sunday.  She's had some health problems for a while but her mom took good care of her and we thought she was doing better. 

We are going to miss the Admiral.  Our hearts are heavy for mom Carole.  Leave a comment for her on Adventures of Admiral Hestorb

  17. What a lovely graphic of Admiral. Mom Paula is still in shock. We knew Admiral had health issues, but we had no idea she was this close to crossing the Bridge. We're sure Sweet Praline greeted Admiral with open paws.
