Dad Paris

First Memorial Day now today.   June 6 is the anniversary of my father’s passing.   Jack O’Donohue.  It’s funny how his death and my mother’s death have stuck with me so strong.  And Didi of course.  I don’t think a day goes by where I don’t think of all three of them.

Coco Flu & Look Up

2X1C2778

Coco got the flu.  Poor baby.   It started with a weird sore on her neck that turned into a hot spot.  A trip to the vet and a shave and she was healing up.   Two days later the sneezing starts.   Then she got a fever.    So we’re on day 5 of the antibiotics and she’s […]


Fleurette & Coquette

girls

The passing of my beloved and wonderful Didi had a big impact on me. I really missed her and have been pretty depressed since she died. She just went too soon and I was totally unprepared. In the weeks that have passed I have not slept well – keep waking up at 4:45am. The house […]


Hole In My Heart

ZenDidi

She’s still gone.  My Didi.  There’s a giant hole in my heart.   Of course it doesn’t help that it was the anniversary of my Mom’s death the day after Didi died.  Why do all the people I love die in June?  What’s up with that?  I used to love June.  Summer starts, school is out, […]


Heartbroken

Didi

Didi Lee Capucine Merenda 2/22/2004 – 6/28/2012 Didi died this morning.   In her sleep.  I was asleep.   Actually, I woke up to a moan/groan noise.  I knew it was Didi so my alert went up.  I straightened my leg and felt wetness on my foot.  Immediately I thought she might have thrown up on the […]


Didi Bird

8 Years!

I’m a little late with this but I’ve been a bit under the weather.   After a month of fighting off a respiratory thing it finally hit me.  Hard.  Actually in a a matter of a few hours I felt the sore throat, fever chills, etc, etc come on.   After a couple of days with no […]


Didi

2007_10 027-Edit

***Saddened to say we lost Didi on June 28, 2012.  She passed away in her sleep.   Way too soon, she was only 8.  I miss her so much my heart aches.   Love me little Didi girl. Awe, come ON, how cute is this kitty?   Dave and I adopted her from the North Valley Animal Shelter.  […]


Birthday Mirthday

Yup, it was my birthday.  I had a good one this year – mostly.   First, Didi had to go to the vet.  Partially for her annual checkup but in the past month she got tons of scabby bumps all over her body.  She also has Feline Herpes (which she probably got as a kitten) and […]


Didi Didi Bo Bidi

Banana Fanna Fo Fidi, Didi! Oh she’s my girl.  My little baby girl.  I love her so much I can’t stand it.  She loves to play and interact face to face and she has a lot of energy.  Yes, she’ll sleep, like a cat does, for hours on end but she has a lot of […]


Cat Thumbs

How cute is this? If they only HAD thumbs! Brilliant commercial.


Happy Birthday Sweetness

Didi is 7 today!   She seems 3.   Still wants to play and run and jump and do all the cat things that cats like.   Didi loves interactive play.  Meaning she likes to play WITH you, not by herself.   Although she does run around like crazy at least once a day.   But when she wants you […]


Feline Street Toughs

I cut through a neighborhood on my way home from work every night.  It’s a slight shortcut but the real reason why I cut through is the cats.   There’s about 10-12 feral cats that live on a corner.  They’re street toughs.  Not afraid of anything or anyone.  They walk right in the middle of the […]


85mm

I got an 85mm lens. I think I like it. It a really nice lens but I’ll try it out this weekend and then decide. In the meantime isn’t Didi the cutest little thing?


Better

Well today is the one month anniversary of the death of my father, Jack O’Donohue.  We’re still recovering.   Lots of tragedy in the past 2 months.  I know of 6 people who have died and one house that caught fire.   Lots of sudden major changes in people’s lives.  That said, life does go on.  I […]


We’re Cat People

Via: OnlineSchools.org I love dogs but really I’m a cat person.  I grew up a cat person and will probably always be a cat person.


Sad Smudge

Smudge is my Mom’s cat.  She got him and Fudge at the same time.  Both all white except Smudge is deaf.  Fudge died right before my Mom did in 2005.  Smudge looked so sad for so long.  He’s a great cat and just wants some love.  My Dad has a hospital bed in the den now.  […]


My Little 6 Year Old

How sweet is my little Didi bird?  She loves to explore and to push the envelope of everything.  She’s got her routines and if they are not followed then we get a lot of head shaking and leg scratching.  Yes, she’ll use your leg as a tree trunk kitty scratcher if she feels like it.  […]


Valentine

My sweet Valentine Dave got me the most beautiful flowers.  They were delivered to my office on Friday.  It was a surprise and really made me feel special.  Dave knows how to send flowers!   This is a photo of my little Valentine Didi checking out the flowers.


Kitty Business Trip!


Happy New Year from Didi

This is my super sweet little bird named Didi. I attempted my version of the 2009 Grammy Posters. Fun Photoshop sillyness.


Happy Holidays


Fox Music Holiday Card 2009

This eCard is the result of weeks of prep work, photo shoots, chasing cats and dogs (even a pig and a goat). This pushed my ageing computer to it’s limit but it was worth it.
