I haven't been on this site in quie a while. I learned to crochet last summer and I spend a lot of time doing that. It is kind of adicting. I lost my tarantula, Lucky, about a month ago. She was 18 years old. She had quit eating for several months, and then she died. I put her body at the edge of the lake behind my apartment one snowy, cold day. I'm not going to get another tarantula. I gave the aquarium she lived in all those years to Goodwill.
Last year I had to take in a cat that my ex-husband had. We had gotten her and her sister from a shelter 5 years earlier. When we divorced he kept the cats because he was very attached and lonely. Esse', the larger of the two, began viciously attacking Holmes, the smaller, shy one. My ex was at his wits end, ready to take Esse' to the shelter so I took her instead. So I have 2 cats, Thunder and Esse', and my dog Barkley. It took a while but now the cats get along great.
Barkley really tore up my apartment because of his severe separation anxiety. I eventually got him a crate that he can't escape. It cost a bundle but he stays in it. But now he has started snapping at my grandsons when they are over so I'm trying to address that.
Not much else to tell but I am not on the computer as much anymore but I'll try to get on here more often.
