Ups and downs (photo hunt)

(Oh yeah by the way HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my nephew B! Love ya)

This is suppose to be the sat photo hunt but I do not have a photo for this weeks word which is twisted. So I thought I'd share some twisted things that have happened.
If you read previous blog you know that here it is April 12th and we are getting more snow. Talk about twisted. Course I remember one time when I was about 12 or so that we got snowed in in SD at the farm. My mom went crazy cause she was outta smokes, and every one in MN thought we were nuts as they had no snow. That was the year my little sister C was bit by a dog and had like 3000 stitches in her head, face neck. Oh that was one bad year.

Then if you remember a few posts back I was telling you my cat Puff had a digestive disorder. This was diagnosed by the vet. Well about a month ago(maybe less) he lost all his weight. He is so skinny you can feel all his bones. I called the vet and questioned him about it and he said"I still have samples from before that I can use to test with let me get back to you".
When he called back he told me how sorry he was that he misdiagnosed Puff. Because Puff is part Siamese, and he had all the symptoms of this digestive disorder and that's what they tested for that's what they thought he had. Had he tested for everything, he might have saved Puffs life. Puff has cancer. All I can do now is make him comfortable. Puff is extra special to me as he is the last link to my mom. twisted huh?

and now a funny story:
The other day before all the kids had left for school and I was making Mr Gab breakfast, I went to open the back door to toss out some stale bread. I opened the door and seen a flash and thought that there was a cat running for the shelter of the van parked in our back yard when I caught a glimpse of the tail. That was no cat! That was a raccoon. Try as I might I could not get him to come out far enough to snap a picture with my cell phone camera. I got the biggest two kids that were still home to look out the window just in time to see the raccoon make his way........ OH NO NO NOT THE GARAGE! someone had left the garage door open and in he went. In about 2 minutes flat a big orange cat who stays in our garage came flying outta the garage, with his tail all fluffed up. He would stop look back over his shoulder at the garage like he was saying what the hell was that?! It was so funny. We don't know if the raccoon is still in the garage, but no one is in a hurry to go look either.

I am sorry to hear about Puff.

I came home one night from the bar and was walking upp to my door when I came face to face with a raccoon.
He was sitting there infront of my door like he was waiting for me to come home.
I live in the center of the city of a million people and we have cooons, skunks and porcupines running around like squrrels now a days.A coupl of years atgo a moose went running down main street.
It only goes to show you how much of their habitat we have taken they are now trying to get it back.

I'm so sorry to hear about your cat, Gab. That sucks!

Watch out because the coon can do lots of damage to your garage. We have to trap them around here or they make a huge mess of things. They are strong enough to kill a dog, so be careful.

Sorry about Puff. I also love pets so i can empathize with you.

We don't have racoons in the Philippines. So if i see one it might be a welcome surprise. But maybe not for the 2nd and 3rd time =)

Thanks for dropping by. Have a nice week ahead!!
