Lung Cancer and Your Cat

My cat Sebastian died from lung cancer.

He was always a playful kitten. He was born on my farm. Sebastian was an outdoor kitten to begin with. He would get under ones feet as a kitten. He was very smart about staying away from cars. The weather was getting colder and he would meow by my back door. I gave in and let him in my house and decided to have three house cats.

His first night in the house he gathered up all of the toy mice and placed them in a neat orderly row. I gave him a bath and he actually enjoyed having a bath.

He was quite healthy and would play with my other cats. He would walk along and balance on the most narrow part of the window. Sebastian was quite the athlete.

Sebastian started to get asthma or at least that’s what I thought it was. He was about eleven years old a the time. My vet gave him some shots which seemed to help. I noticed he seemed to be losing weight. I took him back to my vet. My vet took X – Rays and noticed a large mass on one of his lungs.

Sebastian ate OK  and was not in pain. As time went on his fur was more wiry and he would lay around more. One day he was resting on my steps and seemed to be in pain.

I called my vet and made an appointment to have Sebastian put to sleep. I had a burial box with me. I put some cat toys in the box and a towel to cover him .  Sebastian lived yo be thirteen years old.

I took him home and buried him. it was a very sad day for me. I was heart broken for sometime.

One must always remember to do what is best for your pet. I do not want to see any beloved pet suffer in pain. You will miss your pet terribly but remember he is no longer in pain. Remember all of the fun times you had together.

Music

Some music can be restful and relaxing and other music can grate on your every nerve. Music can be the voice of angels. Music is an expression of the arts. Music uplifts and strengthens the soul. Some peoples voices are music to your ears.

Music is a form of expression that radiates from the notes in the song. There is a sad flow to some songs and other songs flow along quickly and seamlessly. The music you like to listen to says a lot about you as a person. If you like soft and easy listening music you most likely have a relaxed and easy going personality. Hard Rock music is full of beat and action and if this is your kind of music you want things to move along quickly and have lots of action in your life.

We sing praises to God which he finds to be quiet pleasant and an excellent way to worship him. There is a natural music in the universe such as thunder and lightening. The songs of the birds communicating with each other. The sound of insects and frogs and other animals. The bark of our dog and the gentle purring of your house cat.

Music is always with us where ever we go. Anything that has a rhythm or sequence to it could be classified as music. The hum of the engine in our car, the train and box cars moving down the track. The flow of the water in a river the sound of the ocean water that crashes against the rocks and the beach.

As children we make all kinds of music. We use pan covers like symbols and bang away on our toy drum, clap our hands together and blow on a piece of grass held between our fingers. All of us have a natural rhythm in us that is waiting to express itself. Music is a gift from God. Sing praises to God with good voice and Joy in your heart.

Stages of Life

We have different stages in our lives. We are babies, children, young adults, adults and than senior citizens. We all want to be treated nicely in each and every stage of our lives. We all hope that each stage of our life moves along smoothly and easily.

When we are babies we are fussed over and taken care of and adored my many. Our diapers are changed when needed, we get food when we are hungry. We are dependent on others for our every need in life. It is a grave sin to hurt a defenseless baby or infant.

 

As children we play games, make friends and go to school. Some children go to school with no food to eat or clothing to keep them warm in the winter. All children should expect to be feed and covered suitably for the weather. Children need a loving and decent caregiver that looks out for their needs. How we are treated as children partly determines how we will take care of others later in life. Children learn and observe what their adult role models are doing with their lives.

As young adults we are becoming less dependent on others and doing more things on our own. We still need lots of guidance from our parents. A lot of peer pressure is a constant that is best avoided if possible. Do not do something that may make you more popular at the time that you know is wrong.

As adults we can take care of ourselves. We are starting our careers after college and making a life for ourselves. Hopefully we find a job that enriches us and others. With marriage we have our babies to care for and guide into adulthood. Hopefully we have done an outstanding job and they will be an outstanding citizen.

We are senior citizens now and enjoying our golden years. We are traveling and doing a lot of things that we always wanted to do. As we age our health starts to go down hill and we move into assisted living. We have someone to make our meals and help us with cleaning our clothes, etc. As  our health continues to fail we move into a rest home. Some people in rest homes are abused, not fed because they cannot hold their fork or spoon, and they lay all night long on a wet pad until the morning shift comes in. Senior citizens deserve to be treated with the same care as you would give a new born baby. Seniors are loving and caring people that have feelings and pain just like you and I have. Without our seniors we would not be hear today. Treat seniors like you would want yourself treated with dignity, justice, grace, respect and the love of God caring for one of his children. Seniors are lambs of God. Too not bless a child of God is a grievous sin.

Dr. Elsey’s Clean Protein Chicken Recipe Cat Food From Chewy.Com

I was provided Dr. Elsey’s Clean Protein Chicken Recipe Cat Food From Chewy.Com to facilitate my review. All thoughts are 100% honest and my own.

My cat Maggie was very excited the moment I laid out some Dr. Elsey’s Clean Protein for her to eat. She ate up the nicely sized pieces of her chicken recipe cat food at a lightening pace.

Dr. Elsey’s protein is 95% animal based and is grain free. The high protein optimizes your cats body condition. Dr. Elsey’s clean protein has added vitamins & minerals and other trace nutrients to support a healthy immune system for your cat. They use high quality ingredients. As your cat ages he absorbs and metabolizes protein less efficiently and that is why it is important to feed a high quality protein. High protein helps your cat maintain a lean body mass. It is inspired by the protien levels found in natural prey. A cat food with a lot of grain in it does not satisfy yours cats hunger and your cat therefor eats more and puts on more weight. Dr. Elsey’s Clean Protein Chicken Recipe Cat Food from Chewy.Com is manufactured in the USA.

Mr. Gray ate up all of the Dr. Elsey’s cat food that he could find. He enjoyed each and every little bite. He kept looking for any piece of food my other cats may have over looked. Faith ate her portion of Dr. Elsey’s cat food up quickly. I put some on her windowsill cat bed and she found it ASAP. Peter enjoyed his portion as I placed some inside of his cat bed. He ate up what I placed in his bed quickly and he came out to get some more. Peter is very shy so he truly loved the Dr. Elsey’s or he would not have come out of his cat bed. Cats know when a cat food is good or not and they loved Dr. Elsey’s Clean Protein Chicken Recipe from Chewy.Com.

Their Are Vultures Among Us

I have heard and seen a lot of almost unimaginable things go on in families. I have seen people try to take advantage of sick people. Remember someday the ball will land in your court. Do you want your children to end up to be greedy little vultures after all they learn from your examples you set for them.

I saw someone try to take advantage of a person that had just had surgery two hours ago and was still not out from under the effects of the sedative. They said they had a check for them but they actually tried to get money from them. This person told their lawyer if they ever wrote a check to this party to make the check null and void.

One party told someone they would give their items a good home if they would just give them to them. There is nothing that says you are entitled to receive something when someone dies. The more greedy someone is to another person the more likely it will be that they get nothing from them when they die.

One party asked a family member for a copy of her father’s will before he was even cold in the ground. I saw one party sell a relatives house right in front of her casket in the church on the day of her burial service. A person when given a family heirloom said if you have anymore give them to me.

Children have told a parent that they are selling things in their house when they are in the rest home or that they are selling their house. Do no be disrespectful to your parents they worked hard for what they have and it is theirs to do what they want to do with it.

If you want vultures in your family and you act like a vulture you will raise a family of blood thirsty, uncaring, greedy and manipulating vultures.

God sees and knows your every mood, action and thought and what makes you tick. Strive to do the right and caring thing with everyone that is having health issues or facing death. Money is truly the root of all evil. You too will be facing health issues and death sooner then you think, it does not overlook anyone.

My Related Cat Family

I adopted Addi from Nelson Cheese factory in Nelson, Wisconsin. She was a cat that was living outdoors at their business. She is a beautiful silver tabby cat with a little bit of cream coloring in her hair. I had Addi for about 6 months and she became pregnant by my cat Peter. Addi had five healthy kittens. Addi involved the help of my neutered Toms in baby sitting her kittens along with their Aunt Nicole.

When the kittens were about nine weeks old I gave two of them to a kind and loving home. I look at their pictures on Facebook and they are living in the lap of luxury. She named the kittens Leo and Cleo.

I named Addi’s other three kittens Mr. Gray, Hilford and Sherlock and they are large and sturdy looking neutered Tom’s. The other day Addi was sleeping on a large cat mat with Hilford and Nicole cuddled up together. I find Peter cuddled up with Nicole, Sherlock, Hilford and Mr. Gray with his feet or head sticking out of the heated cat bed.

The cat family gets along with Faith and Cali but they never cuddle up with them since they are not related to them. They like my cat Russ because he used to baby sit Addi’s kittens for her so he gets to cuddle up with them like he was part of their family.

My Related cat family is fun to watch in the way that they care for each other and keep each other warm. They like to play games together and toss a catnip mouse to each other. Since I always had outdoor cats as a child I never got to see how the inner workings of a related cat family actually worked until I was able to watch them in a house on a daily basis. The inner workings and concern for each others well being in a cat family is not that much different then the concerns a human family has for each others well being. They watch over each other on a daily basis.

Easter Sunday

I remember getting all dressed up in my new dress and Easter bonnet for church service on Easter Sunday.  My Mother and Father would be dressed up in fine attire also.

Easter is about new life and new beginnings. Jesus gave us ever lasting life when he died on the cross for all of our sins and rose again on the third day. We are forgiven for our sins and our souls will live on in life everlasting with our heavenly Father.

Christ died for our sins so that we may live on even after death. I think of the great sacrifice and the suffering that Jesus went through when he died on the cross for all of our sins. Man has no greater love for a friend then to lay down his life for him. We are truly blessed each and everyday of our lives to have such a true friend and forgiving Savior that he was willing to lay down his life for us so that we may live again.

Easter is a day of renewal and redemption and new beginnings. Spring brings new life into the world. Plants are planted and trees   blossom and later bare fruit and animals give birth to the next generation. Spring springs forward with life eternal.

When you take communion in church think about all that communion stands for and what it represents in your life and the lives of others. Remember the great love that Jesus has for all of his followers or flock.

Renew you relationship with God everyday. Be good and kind and forgiving. Bring joy, love, peace, and hope into peoples lives. Reach out to people and take time to truly listen to them and you will learn a lot from them. Try to make a positive difference in peoples lives. Uplift people and show them that you truly love them and care about them. Be genuine and forth coming and honest and  love your fellow man.

Matthew  26 : 17 – 20

Now the first day of  the first of unleavened bread the disciples came to Jesus, saying unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare for thee to eat the passover ?

And he said,  Go into the city to such a man, and say unto him, The master saith, My time is at hand; I will keep the passover at thy house with my disciples,

And the disciples did as Jesus had appointed them; and they made ready the passover.

Now when the even was come, he sat down with the twelve.

Nutro Wild Frontier Chicken, Beef, Salmon and Trout Cat Treat From Chewy.Com

I was provided Nutro Wild Frontier Chicken, Beef, Salmon and Trout Cat Treat From Chewy.Com to facilitate my review. All thoughts are 100 % honest and my own.

Maggie and her sister ate up the Nutro chicken and beef like it was their catch of the day. They took huge bites of it. It took them no time at all to finish off their Nutro cat treat.

Nutro cat treats are made in the USA from real beef, chicken, salmon and trout. Nutro cat treats are packed full of vitamins and minerals that are good for your cats overall health. The treats are grain free and have high protien that is inspired by your cats ancestry. Feed 4 servings daily per 8 lb. cat. Nutro containers are easy to open and place in front of each of your feline friends to savor the flavor.

I gave the Nutro chicken and beef combination and the salmon and trout combination from Chewy.Com to my cats next door. I placed the two combinations side by side and my cats loved them equally. Russ and Hilford wasted no time at all polishing off their serving of Nutro. Addi and Faith smelled the Nutro and savored the flavor while they ate their portion up. Cali ate up her portion on a perch where no one else could bother her will she ate away. Sherlock and Mr. Gray wasted no time stuffing their mouths full of Nutro Wild Frontier chicken and beef and the salmon and trout combo.

Peter and Nicole always come out of hiding when I leave the house to eat up their portions. Hilford ate up a portion of Nutro that my others cats had missed spotting where I  had placed it. from Chewy.Com when I left the house. All of my cats thoroughly enjoyed their Nutro Wild Frontier  Chicken and Beef and the Salmon and Trout Cat Treats from Chewy.Com.

Spring Has Sprung

I love the spring time. I love planting seeds and watching them grow and looking at the beautiful blossoms on the trees. I have a Magnolia tree that I especially enjoy. My tulips come out of the ground once  again to produce gorgeous flowers.

Baby animals are born to start a new generation of their blood line. The baby animals are full off life and prance around and enjoy their young years frolicking around and exploring all the new things that are here for them to look at and enjoy.

Spring is a time for us to renew our life also. Ask yourself questions about your life such as am I happy on the path I am on in life. If you are not happy on your path in life change it. Choose a fulfilling life that you can be proud of that brings you joy and happiness over the years.

Th older I get in life the less stress I want. Without so much stress in your life you will accomplish much more and live longer. Treat yourself to relaxing days whenever possible and don’t feel guilty about doing so. Travel while your health is good. Spend time with your loved ones however and whenever you can.

I love working up the garden soil and the smell of the soil. Gardening is a wonderful and joyful way of exercising also. I love doing outdoor activities. Spring brings the earthen soil back to work again producing crops and vegetables and much more for us to enjoy. I love walking around in the spring time looking at Gods treasures that he has put on earth for us to enjoy.

Spring springs forward with life eternal year after year. Enjoy spring and all that it has to offer  us. Let God renew you with lots of love in your heart and a spring in your step.

Genesis 1 : 11

And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
