It’s January, 2011, and over the holidays Nevada got sick with an inner ear infection. She lost her equilibrium completely, and we took her to the vet as quickly as we could burn rubber.
She was given a wide-spectrum antibiotic, after the vet lady cleared her right (outer) ear canal of something that looked and was as hard as an olive pit. Until it popped out, we were all afraid she had cancer and thay we’d be saying Farewell shortly.
BUT!!! She’s responded almost perfectly to the antibiotic and the way she’s still hitting the cafeteria line, she intends to stay with us for as long as the grub is good. And she gets whatever she asks for: Tonight she dined on homemade chili with Kelly and me.
I’m grateful both to the the vet and to my God for her recovery, and I hope we have many more years as best friends together.

Our first “child” together.
from and by a friend who hates cats. She sent her to us, which was a good thing for all of us!
Nevada and I are #1 best GFs, and we’re both 50+!! (Especially in cat-years, LoL!)

My kitten, my girlfriend, my cudd’ly sweet,
grown old and still happy, at mine and Dad’s feet.
Mom of no kittens, foster of five,
it makes us all grateful that you’re still alive.
The though of your loss makes dad and me us cry,
Marine that he is, my hubby and I.
We’ve been delighted to love you,
and are delighted yet, too.
Out of a lifetime of our four-legged friends
our love for none of them ever ends.
We love your bight eyes, and your rattling purr,
we’re as happy as you when we pet your soft fur.
When God calls you home, little dear kitten,
We’ll miss your cold nose and wee white mitten,
but we know you’ll be with us
and Jesus in Heaven.
