I could not write this week as the power was out for four days and it wrecked havoc with the regular routine. My elderly mother (who has dementia) and myself abandoned ship on Saturday due to the cold and water in the basement. The only place we could retreat to was my sister’s; 2 1/2 hours away. Being in a strange place, has sent my mom’s fragile mental health reeling.
I had to leave the cats at the house, with a load of food and my brother-in-law to look after them while he tries to pump the water out of the basement. I could not have taken them with me as they hate their carriers and my sister has two of her own cats. It’s unbearably difficult to be without my felines and I truly miss the joy they bring. Once everything gets back to normal, I shall continue to share their antics.
