Fear- Random 5 Friday

I am fearful today.

1. Danny is losing weight rapidly and it scares me.

2. Sassy's vet visit is today, and I am worried what we will find.

3. Butch is erupting in lesions around all his mucus membranes, that worries me too. I suspect it is either cancer or canine lupus.

4. Both Mason and Smarty Pants have either been bit by something or gotten something under their skin which has left an open wound. I started treating with Vetrycin last night, along with some bitter yuck to keep them from licking.  But I fear another vet bill is on its way.

5. I am still only working part time, not getting enough hours, cannot seem to find a second part time job that does not involve telemarketing (which I will do if I have too) and my animals are all falling apart.  I am afraid I am going to have to start selling stuff off to stay afloat. Meaning my car, my artwork collection, any antiques I have that are worth anything.

There is my random five....not all that random after all I guess.

Linking up with Nancy at


  1. Many years ago, I moved across country from Vermont to CA. My animals all had reactions similar to what you describe. They all had trouble with the new environment, the bugs, plants, weather even the dirt. Give yourself and your critters some time to adapt and I think you will find that most of these things pass by.

    I will be interested to hear what the vet has to say and I wish you good luck in your job search.

  2. I hope things get better for your animals. Moving is a stressor, and a new environment can be hard to get used to. Hope things settle down very quickly! And good luck on the job hunt.

  3. Argh! Why do all these things happen at once? Fingers crossed that most of them ease away on their own and things settle down. xxx

  4. I'm so sorry about all of this hitting at once Cindy -- I do hope each resolves itself in some good way -- especially the job search. Will keep you in my thoughts. xo

  5. Thank you everyone, things are a little better....except for the job part. Will do a new post on it all.
