I’ve never really lost anyone really close to me before. I’ve lost grandparents, which was hard but I didn’t spend every single day with them. I’ve had breakups but usually none of them lasted longer than a year. Losing my baby boy Pilot was the most painful thing I’ve ever gone through in my 34 […]

Goodbye My Baby Boy

Back on my lap again.

I had no choice but still I had to suck it up and do what was best for the sweetest little furboy on the planet. My little guy who has given me so much happiness over the past 9 years, I had to let him go. He’s been such a fighter his entire life because […]

Another Tumor Bites the Dust

So it appears Pilot had another tumor, this time in his eyelid. At first his eye just seemed to have an infection but very quickly we realized it was something much worse.   When we brought Pi back to the vet they said they had to take it out right away. We were told during […]

Fighter Pilot: Going Strong

I’m absolutely amazed at how well he’s adjusted, it’s almost as if nothing at all has happened to him. He now jumps up and jumps down really easily. He runs faster than I can catch him, which I know from experience. I swear that right after the surgery he was depressed and upset about it […]

Fighter Pilot’s Tripod Journey

So I’ve learned a lot in the last week since my furkid Pilot had to have his back leg removed. He had a tumor and the best option to save his life was to remove his leg entirely. I was scared, I won’t lie. I was afraid he might never be Pilot again. I was […]

Training Ourselves

As you know from time to time we deal with the issue of Pilot being an indoor/outdoor cat. When we first adopted him his previous owners had actually let him outdoors so from the moment we had him he was begging to go outside. Once when we were in an apartment he bolted out the […]

To Be A Pet Owner

This all started here. The way I see it, to decide to adopt a pet is more than just taking in an animal, to me it’s like adopting a furry child. Do they need to go to school or be taught to read or learn to socialize? No, which is one of the things I […]

My Childfree Mind

I don’t know if it’s because I’m a woman or if it’s just because I think way too much for any human being but I contemplate the whole child vs. childfree thing on a regular basis. I’m not going to lie, I’m not 100% certain about what I want or don’t want. I feel like […]

Different, How?

I’m going to delvge into a little bit of a taboo subject here and hope nobody throws anything at me. I was talking with a coworker of mine who is childfree like me (although she has 3 dogs, just recently lost one) and we were talking about how much work a pet can be. Me: […]
