All clean!

Welcome Lucy!

So we went to the Humane Sociecty and got Roy another friend to play with. It's not Archie and we'll miss him lots. Leroy purred when he saw her. Cats are supposed to hiss. She's super friendly and her and Jack will pass a ball back and forth. Jack is pretty curious about this new kitten and she's equally curious of him. He's the first cat that has actually come up to Jack! :)

Good Thing About Kids...

Cheesy shirts!

We Will Miss You Archie

On Sunday, October 21st, Jack was scheduled to be baptized. About two hours before we walked into the bedroom to find Archie Arch laying on the floor yelping in pain. We immediately left to go to the emergency vet. Archie had a mass on his liver and was in a lot of pain. We didn't know about the mass. The first time I felt it was when I picked him up that morning. That was also the first time I noticed how light he felt. Now, Arch is around ALL the time and the previous had been begging for turkey or chicken or tuna everytime we opened the fridge. Also he usually comes and lays on us - so maybe that's why we didn't notice that he lost 6 lbs. 6 lbs since March. We felt horrible. I'd lift Jack and Archie who weighed about the same when we brought Jack home - both 18 lbs. As the summer went on, I thought Jack was gaining weight and that's why he felt heavier than Archie. Anyway, we had to put Archie to sleep. He was in so much pain. They said that cat oncologists could help sustain his life for maybe another year. We rescheduled the baptism for November 4th. Leroy is so sad. He is hiding under the bed and won't come out. We'll all miss you Archie.

All Dressed Up

Here he is - all dressed up for daycare! Erik dressed him this particular morning and Jack made it to daycare very clean and looking good.
Dad - not so much!
At about 11, Erik reached to scratch his head and smelled something a little funny.... Come to find out, he actually brought a little something extra of Jack's to work on the back of the sleeve of his workshirt! Gross! Good thing everyone is clean now....sorry to everyone in the cubes next to him this day. :)
Last but not least, here is an interesting article in Russia Today about orphans in Russia and what Grandmothers are doing to try and help them:
