September 2009


We put Spaz down today. He was 12 years old and a dear friend. Here are some pictures to remember his life and the joy he brought to our family.

Andrea has a more complete photo memorial on her Facebook page.

He couldn't go outdoors after the accident, which was hard for him. He had to settle for a potted plant.

So if you didn’t already know, our pet cat, Spaz, was hit by a car back in June. The right side of his pelvis was crushed. His recovery has been rocky and challenging for everyone. He had to be confined to a pet crate for the better part of two months, he cannot jump, and he will never go outside again. LE cannot play with him since the risk of re-injury is too great, and it’s hard to keep an inquisitive toddler away from a furry kitty. (more…)

So I haven’t posted for a while; thought I’d just put something up so the blog doesn’t look abandoned or something.

So what’s happened in the last month or so? A bunch of projects, among other things. (more…)
