Busy Sunday

It was a busy weekend here. Marie visited, much to Charlie’s delight as well as to my own. Marie is my younger daughter.

Unfortunately, my daughter Lynn is recovering from a serious bite and scratches from a feral cat. She is undergoing preventive treatment against possible rabies and taking antibiotics. Today she had to return to the hospital because there appears to be an infection. 

Who would’ve thought an ordinary cat could be so dangerous? It attacked her kitty and when she went to rescue Snowball, the strange cat latched onto her and would not let go. 

Well, before Marie left today, we took Charlie to the dog park. 


About an hour after Marie left to head home, I went to a volunteer appreciation event at Seven Bends State Park. It was very pleasant although windy.


  1. Charlie makes a nice shadow! Thanks for participating in Shadow Shot Sunday. The more the merrier, as they say!

  2. It is nice to have your daughter visiting. Sending healing prayers for Lynn. Cute photos of Charlie.
    Take care, enjoy your day and have a happy week ahead.

  3. ...spring is a windy season.

  4. The possibility of rabies is not to be taken lightly. I hope that all works out well.

  5. Charlie seems to have had a good weekend. I'm sorry about you daughter Lynn's problem with getting better from the cat bite. I've never known a cat that would do that, so it is good she is receiving care. All the best to her and your family.

  6. Ouch, that doesn't sound like fun to recover from that cat. Shame on the cat. Hope her kitty also didn't get hurt. Pats to Charlie, the star of the show!

    1. Her kitty seems to be okay. It has a bald spot where the mean cat grabbed it. Snowball was originally a stray kitten, but got a rabies shot when neutered.
