After a long Spring of ups and downs sweet Mateo passed in early June...fortunately for all it was quick and for Mateo relatively painless. I will spare you all the details. For the first time in 30 years we were catless. Such an odd feeling.
Enter the new kid on the block!
We rescued Alfie, a 4 year old male from the the Town's Animal Shelter. He was "surrendered" by his owner because a health issue that required surgery that they could not afford. Risky, yes I know, with little in background information you never know what you might get...The Shelter arranged for his surgery and as luck would have it, I know the vet who volunteered his services to set him right.
We certainly picked a winner! Quite affectionate and well behaved, it's as though he has always been here.
My nephew Robbie was here for a few weeks and they became the best of friends. And once again our house feels like a home...
