I'm looking forward to the chilly evenings when I can turn on the gas logs and curl up with a good book.  Fall and winter evenings at home couldn't be better.  Be thankful if you have been blessed with a home, a blanket, and a book!

Today, I am quite stressed.  My kitty Sasha has stoppeed eating again.  After visiting the Vet 3 weeks ago and getting shots for arthritis and antibiotics, she perked up and started eating again.

But Friday when I came home, she had not touched her food.  Saturday she stayed in one spot all day, and ate nothing.

She is not eating today.  I'm afraid she is going to die.  Is this how they act
when the end is near?  She has retreated to another room and is just laying there.  It is Sunday, so I don't know what to do.  I will have to get her to the
vet tomorrow.

I'm going to be very sad if she doesn't get well.  She is so much company for me and I've had her for 15 years.  I'm so sad for her because I don't know if
she's in pain or what I should do for her.  Say a prayer for Sasha that she
will recover and remain with me.  I don't want to lose her now.

To tone the arc under the eyes, where pouches and bags form
you must press your lower lids into service.
Close your eyes by slowly raising lower lid.  Keep eyes closed 5 seconds.
Open eyes. Repeat this exercise five times daily.

To help ease away or prevent crowsfeet, raise eyebrows to the highest
possible arch. Close eyes slowly and relax eyebrows.  Repeat 5 times daily.
