The new pet blog and my cat Flash

I don't usually send you to other blogs -- I like keeping you here with me -- but I hope you'll mosey over to Unleashed, my friend and boss Mary's new pet blog.

We don't have pets anymore. We always had cats, but the last three had such long, drawn-out illnesses I decided I couldn't go through it anymore. It's the same problem as with humans. The professionals can extend life, so they do....

Actually, I should give a shout out to my wonderful vet, Dr. Bradley at Aardmore Veterinarium, who finally said to me, "Elizabeth, it's time to let him go."

After I agreed to have Flash, our last cat, put to sleep -- sorry, that's the euphemism my family always used -- that afternoon (so my husband and Gailor could be with him), I took him home and went to work.

Mary took one look at my face and said, "Go home and stay with him until you have to take him back to the vet's." Which I did.

So that's why I hope you'll read her blog.

That was a very good story Mary posted, a great start.

I'll visit now and then, like I do the Parlor, but I like it here in the Sandbox best.

another fun pet site that is just starting up:

So: if Dining@Large is the Sandbox, and You Don't Say is the Parlor, does that mean that Unleashed is the Litter Box?
