Bad Week

This is a really, really bad week for us right now.

First, the Mom got a really bad stomach flu She has been sick since Monday night and is still really weak. I guess twelve hours of pooping and puking will do that to a human. I've been sitting watch with the Brats, keeping an eye on her. This is the one time we don't hiss or fight 'cause the Mom is too important to us.

Secondly, the Dad got laid off from work today. This isn't good. It means no Stinky Goodness for a while so I'll just have to make do with the dried stuff. Blech. The Dad is really stressed out though and all of us are worried he'll get sick too. Two sick humans would be really bad. Then again, this job had been making him sick anyways 'cause his stupid bosses were working him too much, so maybe this is a Good Thing in disguise. We'll see.

Oh, Oh. Those are some major stress factors combined there. At least you're all still together and as long as you didn't really poop on anybody's pillow Saturday, you can all get through this. Besides, dry food is better for you. You'll live longer. Our paws are crossed for you-- Alberta, Sky, Blackie and Charlie

Ayla,
Tell you parents not to worry. Worry is not good for healing, or for figuring out what to do next. Make sure your Mom gets plenty of fluids and naps.

Our daddy lost his job, too - last fall. My parents did a really weird thing then. Mom went to work and dad went to graduate school. You know what? My daddy's job was making him sick, too. He's glad to be rid of it. Your parents will land on their feet, don't worry. Things may get a little tight for awhile (they sure did here), but good things can happen from bad stuff. Hang in there.
