I am 60, have MS, am an avid cook, love making candles (soy) and watching the endless parade of Nature outside my home. I treat the MS with supplements and LDN, I do not use any of the C.R.A.B. MS meds, we don't get along well. I was married for 13 years, we were together for 15. We are now divorced. Sad, that. I do still love him, but ONLY as the father of my baby. Better to keep it civil, hurts the child(ren) less that way, but is oh-so-hard to do sometimes.

MaxxiMoose

Believe it or not someone dropped off this glorious Maine Coon cat! He has been on his own for some time by the way I can still count his ribs...he is spayed and declawed. why would someone abandon a helpless cat? Once they have no claws, they have NO defense, can't even climb a tree to escape danger. I saw him out on the porch one night, late. Wasn't sure what I had seen, so large and dark, so I went out and called, heard a meow that was unfamiliar, and HE came around the corner. He was literally starving, I put out some food and I swear I have never seen a cat eat so frantically. I put out my hand and he rubbed, raised up to it, and I was lost. I called Rob, took him about 1/2 second to declare him ours. He went in and brought out a chicken leg, also devoured...it took a few days to entice him in, but as you can see that was successful :-) Rob named him Maxx (as in Maximus Kitty) I named him Moose, so he is MaxiMoose, or Big Guy. He has GREEN eyes, so green! He is a brown mackeral tabby. I finally got all the burrs out of his tail. He is eating 1 to 2 cans a day, plus dry, and finally starting to fill back out. We estimate he lost about 1/2 of his body weight, from where he should be.
In other news:
Rob is currently in Fla. His Father passed. Rob has been gone a week, as of today. He left the night of Robbin's 10th Birthday. He will probably still be gone for about a week. I am doing Ok, got food and sundries to last, and can drive as far as to go into the nearby town if I have to. I miss him SO bad!
As you can see, I got my camera replaced, so I will be posting pics again YAAY
