It's been a pretty rough week around here for our pets. Arbour, our 11 year old cat, has gone missing and we fear she may have fallen prey to a fisher. We've learned since her disappearance that there are more fishers around this area than usual this year.
Casey was two when we got Arbour and she's always been a bit of a mom to her cat. As a kitten Arbour would just climb into that little nook in Casey's 'arms' and that's how they'd sleep. Needless to say, Casey has been missing her cat as have we.
To make things worse, Casey started limping on Wednesday and she spent last night in hospital, having had to have a minor surgery to have her damaged 'toe nail' removed. The claw may grow back, but in the mean time the limp is almost completely gone and she's happy to be resting comfortably at home! How do you like that cute bandage. LOL
Earlier in the summer, when my friend, Heather came to visit, she asked me to back her car down our large hill as she's not as comfortable with it as I am. Casey, always by my side, followed me up the hill, so Heather told me to invite her in the car and give her a ride back down. Well, Casey happily jumped in, and when at the bottom of the hill she just curled up on the seat and went to sleep. She slept there for an hour before we were able to coax her out! Silly old puppy...(she turned 13 in June, but will always be my puppy!)
