She was such a good girl.
Murphy is not quite right yet, and the kittens aren’t helping. He has to live without the biggest influence and love of his life. He loved Tammy more than anyone or thing. When I was cleaning up the bags from the vet, I let him smell Tammy’s collar. He got wildly excited. We didn’t go get her or bring her home. He was sad then. So was I.
I will rearrange things around here. I don’t think I can trust the cats not to irritate Murphy. Dora hasn’t had a loss like Murphy and I, so she can deal with the cats during the day while I am a work.
Perhaps I can make Roberto’s room a boy’s club. It will take retraining Murphy and
Tammy Dora as to which doors to run to in their exchanges, but they are smart enough to get it.
I miss Tammy. She was a strong girl.
I’m down to one lonely, stoic feral kitten. Tilly the anti-social except for her sister kitten Toes is now alone. Toes is dead.
Tammy’s tumor has come back, so now it’s just a matter of her pain and quality of life.
I tried to get Tammy and Dora to be friends, but Tammy bit me, so since I didn’t know her, I used the fact that another dog got into the yard as an excuse to have her tested for rabies.
That was long ago.
Sad times are here. Sadder times await.
A shift is happening.

What was that thing we all said back in the ’80′s?

There’s also two nice interviews with Richard Blanco.
One on the Newshour.
The other on NY Mag.
There were many goodbyes this week. I took all of them as best I could. There was some comic-like crying involved. I had wanted to tell two or three of my students about my blog but didn’t. I think I will have an opportunity to do so at some point in the near future.
This break also gives me another opportunity — to get back into blogging more. I used to worry about appearances so much — not any more. I think I will look into getting a better camera and post more pictures and videos.
Times have changed, but I am reluctant to be more active on facebook or twitter. I like having this little space that only a few know about.
This is going to be a great winter break.

This morning, Dora and I went to the Buffalo Bayou Walk. At first, she didn’t get it and was a little scared. That ended when she took a poop just outside the UHD sustainability garden.
Here’s the pics and vids:
