that life is finally getting back to normal -- in the last few weeks, I've had 9 cats spayed or neutered, had them micro-chipped and treated for fleas and ear mites, had them de-wormed, tested for feline leukemia, got them distemper shots and rabies vaccines, and had 11 sick cats, 6 of whom were on oral antibiotics for 2 weeks -- and as of this past Friday, all that was behind me and all the cats and kittens were/are finally ready for adoption...
I found out yesterday that my beloved Buster has cancer and is only likely to live a few more weeks.
He is 11 years old now. I adopted him and his sister, Bunny, back when I lived in New York City. I'm guessing I don't have to write about how this is making me feel. So incredibly sad. But I am committed to focusing on the joy of having him hear for as long as possible. Not spending the remaining weeks crying or freaking out. Just let him have his rhythm, you know?
On a brighter note, that TV Pilot proposal I turned in a few weeks back made it to the semi-finals. I now have until August 11th to write the actual pilot. I am very excited, gang. But of course, a bit stressed. I am still in school full-time. And so far getting A's in "Marriage and Family Counseling." The other day, I opted to get ordained in the Open Ministry -- non-denominational. Rather than wait and get ordained in an evnagelical denomination that I would have to change at some point, anyway. I still have several years to go before I get my degree, but once I register my ordination, I will be able to perform wedding ceremonies, officiate at funerals, give counseling, and start preaching in my own church...
I'll keep you posted regarding worship times and location!!!
Meanwhile, here's my boy back in 2012.
