The Terrible Triumvirate; Aging, Death, and Grief

A note from Karin and Trish--these three episodes are pretty somber.  We made them in the hope that, as our furry pets have much shorter lives than ours, the podcasts might offer some helpful advice for dealing with elderly animals, making decisions about euthanasia, and coping with loss.
Making these three episodes was hard yet cathartic.  

Please, if you don't feel up to listening, that is fine with us.  

And if you do, thank you.  We hope it helps.

Sylvester, Trish and Scott's much loved (and terribly spoiled) tuxedo boy, the day he was rescued and brought home.

You can learn more about him HERE, in his own words!

Podcast 02/11/18

In which we discuss a highly important subject; The Naming of Cats.  Clearly one of us **koff koff Trish** gives no thought at all to the subject, whereas Karin literally puts the cat on the table whilst choosing a proper Kitty Cognomen.

Don't forget...leave us a photo along with the fabulous name or nickname for your feline on our FB page, and you could win a Dickaroo!

Phun Phacts and Photos:

Spoonerisms, a list.
