Girl Human has been a real bad Human. She has been Neglecting all her duties to us and you guys here on Catsterland. Since it has been so difficult to get here she has not had time to wait for the site to load. She has been neglecting all her duties as my secretary. Today I look on my pages and see all the wonderful gifts you guys have left for all those special occasions she has missed. And for that we are so very sorry and give a big apology. We will never be able to thank everyone for their thoughtfulness on a one on one bases.

She did not even realize that an entire year has passed since Decker left for the bridge until she saw all your wonderful greetings and gifts. It was March 25th and it was snowing a light snow. This March 25th it snowed again and she was so busy she did not even take time to reflect on the significant of the event. It is unusual for us to have snow this late in the year. The flowers were feeling the same way as they were struggling to bloom during the storm. In Decker's short life he loved to play in the snow. It was his favorite times.

Girl Human has had her plate very, very full and doing one of the hardest things in her life she has had to do. She had to put her foot down and tell Grandma Human it was time for her to sell her home and move to a place closer to Girl Human where she can be cared for. She has had a lot of problems the last several months and has fallen 4 times and each time broke bones. So Girl Human prayed for the strength needed to confront Grandma Human and stand firm with the very hard task she was about to undertake.

The first thing was 100% rejection and Granddaughter Human and Girl Human told her they were going to see some places and check them out. Grandma Human was giving a 100% NO. I'm not leaving my house she answered. With a few weeks of hard core love Grandma Human finally realized that Girl Human was not doing this for meanness but for love. It has been a very bumpy trip with emotions changing daily for her and I. With a lot of tears and hugs we have come a long way.

We found a beautiful place that we know she will be very happy in. It's small 21 ft square efficiency in a beautiful retirement community. Her place has a fantastic view of the Blue Ridge Mountains and has a reputation through out the entire valley as being a wonderful place to live. We have met several people who live there,others who have family that live there(including Grandma's next door neighbor) every place we go we find people who have done business with people that live there and everyone has had nothing but good to say about it.

Grandma Human has had different emotions every day about this choice. She is leaving her town she has know for years and moving 6 miles from Girl Human. Girl Human has been traveling every day to be with Grandma Human since last Oct when she first fell. She has been having problems ever since last July when she almost bled to death because of a small cut on her ankle from a tree branch. She had no idea she was bleeding and left blood trail all over the house before she finally called for help. The thing was she called Girl Human instead of the EMT's.After a long recovery she then started having problems with her legs holding her up when she did the simple thing of stepping down one step. Her potassium levels were way off and causing the problem. She is now slowly doing better but still tiers easy.

Any why back to the present. So now Girl Human is working and going to Grandma Humans daily to get the many years of history down sized to this place she is moving to. We are now on the final leg of the upstairs and going through the family history and looking at everything she owns and dividing things up in many different piles but the biggest piles are for Goodwill and the trash. Girl Human ends her day with a trip to Goodwill and taking out the trash to collect in the back for pickup weekly.

Girl Human now has a big bunch of items she will be going to sell. Stamps, old photos, items that belonged to her Great Grand Aunts and relatives. That will all be placed on hold for a long while, as now it's doing the Move the first weekend of May. Then it will be an auction of the remaining items. With the big task of getting the house ready to sell by the last weekend of May..

So my furrrends that is why we all are being very neglected. I am very thankful for all the nice pawmails and gifts we have been receiving and do want you guys to know we have not forgotten you. This has been a real hard journey so far and it's far from over.

It will get better when things are all worked out. I bet your grandma human will wonder why she didn't move sooner! Then your mom will have more time to spend with you.

Nice to hear from you and catch up. We've been away from Catster for similar reasons. Just back for a few days to tell everyone where we moved to - - our own page. Easier for mom to post on even from her phone. Well, my younger siblings moved there. I'm an angel now so I watch over my family.

Purrs & Love, Khaki
