Feline Friday October 18, 2019

A little over a week ago Russell woke up
in the middle of night in a lot of pain.
He tried laying on the couch downstairs,
but then all of a sudden his left side became
paralyzed and I immediately called 911.
I won't go into the grisly details, but after
some serious surgery and a few recuperative 
days in the hospital Russell is back home and
will have home health care for a few weeks. 
The paralysis disappeared quickly after
the surgery and Russell is making amazing
 progress and the doctors have assured us 
that he will make 100% recovery!
Lucy the Cat is now referred to as Nurse Lucy
as she has been very attentive and loving
towards Russell. She knows how to show her love.
Just look at her!  Such a great cat!         

"Nurse Lucy" takes her responsibilities
very seriously!

But...she also takes good care of herself!
Have a great Feline Friday!
Thanks Sandee!


  1. So glad to hear he'll fully recover! What a scare. Lucy looks like a warm fuzzy nurse.

  2. I'm so happy Russell is doing well. Yes Miss Lucy is now also know as Nurse Lucy. She's doing a great job. I had no doubts at all.
