As you’ve noticed, we’ve been gone for awhile, but we miss you, and sometimes you’re all kind enough to leave notes saying that you miss us. Here’s the thing: Crepes and I have been separated, through no fault of hers or mine or anyone’s, really. She’s gone to live with the DadFOD. He takes lots of photographs of her, which she seems to believe means she now has a modeling contract. No reason to set her straight on that one.
In any case, we still feel like we have things to say. I may not be able to blog as frequently, but I’m still learning things that I want to share with you. Things are still going on with all the other kitties and there have even been some additions (through no fault of my own, once again) that have enhanced our home. I’d like to introduce you to them and continue helping promote the little guys that need all the help they can get. We’re still even trying out a few products here and there (only the ones that really interest us and we think are great ideas for enhancing your furry buddies’ lives) and figure we can let you know when we find something cool. And also, Louie has REALLY been waiting for his chance to blog. And, being one of the other special needs pets in the house (heart murmur), he believes it’s his time to shine. Who am I to tell him he can’t?
We’ll be in touch. And don’t worry, you’ll still get to hear from Crepes often.

This is a bit of a heavy one for you today. I wanted to let you know about a resource that my friends at Tripawds have come up with to help pet parents who are struggling with the possibility of having to amputate one of their pet’s limbs.
It’s a sad fact that, sometimes, pets get cancer. Sometimes they are born with physical defects. Occasionally, they injure themselves beyond repair. In all cases, amputation is one way to relieve your pet’s discomfort. I also personally like to think I look like a badass because of my stump. When faced with these decisions, pet parents feel stress, fear, worry, and often have very few resources or people to turn to for comfort. That’s where Tripawds steps in, no pun intended.
There it is in all it’s glory.
Already well known for their excellent website where pet parents can gather together for online support, Tripawds has now started a toll-free Tripawds Pals Helpline where those of you who are struggling with the decision to amputate can talk to someone who knows, cares, and understands. And maybe also has an accent. I love talking to people with British accents. Anyway, while these people are not veterinarians and cannot give you specific medical advice, they can talk you through your decision and give you a perspective you may not otherwise have had.
If you’d like to give them a call, dial 844-TRIPAWD (844-874-7293).
Tell them Crepes sent you.
