Our Journey...

Think we forgot to tell you a lil bit about what sort of vacay we're on! Last September of 2011, Dad retired. He and momzers got an RV and decided to plan a trip across the country, visiting national parks on the way to Maine (where's that?) for a family reunion. That's a long trip from northern California! Anyway, this blog is now a record of our travels across the good ole U.S. of A. and even Canada - plus all the things we get to do and see! We started our journey mid-March and hope to be back in NoCal by mid-October - yeah!

About Ozzie...



We are sorry we haven't commented lately on your posts. We will be visiting shortly...

Last Friday morning after her breakfast, Ozzie didn't show up for play later in the morning, nor did she show up for her dinner. Though she is beloved in our household by all, we are the penultimate doggeh blog hogs and don't easily give our space over to the ONE we actually fawn over. Mom and Dad were sick with worry and posted "lost" signs all over the neighborhood and filed a report at our Humane Society. Lucky we did. Two (that's TWO) days later, the Humane Society got a call from what the nice lady there (who eventually phoned Mom and Dad), said was " a pretty nutty sounding woman." The Humane Society immediately went to pick up this cat who supposedly was not well. The "woman" who called in apparently had put this feline into her garage for two days.

Mom and Dad were furry happy to learn that it was probably Ozzie, but horrified to hear that she had a broken femur. They immediately went to pick her up and took her to the Pet Emergency Clinic. Our doggeh Nanny came to take care of us. By the time Mommy and Daddy came home, they looked furry tired.

Note from Mom: the fact that Ozzie was found was a miracle and we are beside ourselves. We were afraid we might have to do a different post. By Sunday afternoon, we had almost given up - however, knowing this cat, we held out a wee bit of hope as she is incredibly resilient and tough for such a little one. We transferred Ozzie to our vet this morning, where she'll have surgery ($$$ ouchie ouchie) on Thursday afternoon, by the same awesome guy who operated on Sammie for the "GLOVE." She should be home and recuperating by Friday afternoon or Saturday. We will update you when we know more. We still haven't a clue as to what happened to her, or who took her into the garage, but we do know that she didn't get run over. She is resting comfortably, albeit full of drugs - poor kitty. We've been reassured that cats recover amazingly well after orthopedic operations.

Oh goodness! We sure have our paws crossed for Ozzie. That has to be so painful, and in the cold, too! We hope that the surgery goes smoothly and that she'll be recovering at home in no time!

Hey Guys,
WOW. Poor Ozzie but lucky Ozzie. Since we live out in the boonies, or four felines aren't allowed outside because of the predatory animals (foxes, coyotes, etc) but also to keep them from getting into trouble. Cats do recuperate quickly. We'll turn on the good vibe machine and point it west

OBTW: Dad says that your mom and dad should take a look at this site:

Oh, we do not like to hear stories of anyone getting hurt, but we are grateful she was found, even if it was by a crazy person.

We are sending the power of the paw your way and hoping all will be very well very soon.

We are so happy to hear Ozzie was found and that he is going to be okay? Thats weird that a lady kept him in her garage for several days before she called. Maybe she was a hoarder!
