since i last posted there has been a big talent show, a wedding, and a family bridal shower, but i've been too busy loving on this guy to think of posting about that stuff. Hugo, my 18 year old Maine coon mix...I rescued him when I was still in college/ I went to a school in the mountains; People would often dump unwanted kittens in bags in our powerful north flowing New River to get rid of them. Hugo made his way to the river banks as a tiny kitten somehow, unscathed. I adopted him from the kill shelter and have been loving on him ever since. He has been my right hand man since I moved away from my parents home, and I've known him longer than my husband or my kids... a bridge in my life that spans significant eras. Thyroid issues/kidney failure. Had to have him shaved because he stopped grooming himself, and he's a long hair. He's responding like a champ to his medicine, and the kids and I all agree that he looks just like a super fierce AT-AT.. I'm shooting to get him to at least 21 so I can take him to the bar for a drink 😸😽 sorry for writing on and on about my cat, but he's so badass.
