Suzanne, I am so happy for you about the news surrounding your book. Congratulations. I, personally, cannot wait to read it, and I'm sure the other members of the bookclub feel the same way. We're waiting for more news on it.
I know too well the pain of losing a pet, and it saddens me that you lost yours. There is no good time, but maybe having the wonderful news about your book will keep help keep your spirits up at this time. Life is all about balance, isn't it? My heart goes out to you. All the best to you!


Your cat disappeared? I hope Rudy returns, or at least someone finds him.

...If not, at least you should be happy about the book. And I'm sure Rudy wouldn't want your usual schedule to get ruined (his favorite part of the day!)
*sigh* I'm not good at this...

Dear Suzanne,
I empathize with your loss of Rudy. We could not find our beloved elderly cat and I was devastated when the vet told me that often elderly cats crawl under a bush or something when they feel “their time” is coming. A neighbor called and said our cat was under his steps. We got him out and brought him home but he didn't last the night. He was not sick, just not looking quite right, which is why I had made a vet appt. Later the vet told me that when a cat does the going away and hiding under something thing, there is nothing the he or any other vet can do if and when the cat is found. I was just thankful that we found him in time for be there when he took his last breath. I am crying as I type this. I hope you have a better outcome and find Rudy safe and sound.

I am so sorry to hear that Rudy is gone, I hope he comes back safe and well. I am glad to hear that you have sold your book.


If you hadn't allowed your cat to go outdoors you wouldn't have lost the cat. I don't mean to be harsh, my heart goes out to you on your loss, but look at the reality of the situation, would you allow your child out of doors alone?
