The two love birds who weren't too friendly, poor little Quasimodo with the "broken" neck so he couldn't fly... they passed away today in their nest box, snuggled against each other, she with her wing over him as if tryng to coax hm back to life...

RIP little ones and enjoy your flights in the afterlife

So, one year and 16 days after his first heart attack Jack has crossed the rainbow bridge to join his "sister" Brownie.

I hate unscrupulous breeders

We had to put Brownie to sleep on Wednesday, September 5. She went downhill very quickly over the prevous 48 hours and it was obvious that it was time to let her go.... she wasn't happy and she was starting to be in pain.

Brownie came to me with the Ravening Hordes.... one of the good things from a very strange 9 month period of my life. She was always loving, always happy, always ready to welcome a new sibling into the herd. Even after she lost one eye and went blind in the other she still was enjoyng the latest batch of kittens as they played on and around her...

She had a good life, sixteen years is a good run for a mid to large sized dog. She was supposed to die last year, the vet gave her 2 weeks to live in July 2006 so she had a really good two week run :-)

We will miss her - her "brother" Jack is very confused and unhappy that his "sister" Brownie isn't here to snuggle with at night....

Sleep well Brownie....

Dawg - RIP

Dawg 1991-2007

So named by my ex when he was drunk - the only one of the herd of cats to ever respond to "Here kitty kitty"

Dawg left us yesterday afternoon. She was the only one to test positive for Feline Leukemia and it had mutated into an easily contagious version so to protect the others, the majority of whom are less than 18 months old, Dawg was put to sleep yesterday.

It was heartbreaking - even though she went suddenly blind last week,(ironic as she was the only one of the cats afraid of the dark) she was learning how to get around the house just fine and gave every appearance of feeling fine. We wouldn't even have known she was sick if we hadn't taken her to the vet last Wednesday for her blindness...

We sweated it out until yesterday when the vet could make a house call and test everyone else. We had already decided that if most were already positive Dawg wouldn't be put down... each test was a mixed emotion - every negative test meant one more uninfected cat that was safe but one step closer to the end of Dawg's life.

She had 16 good years ---- we will miss her.

Dawg

As many of you may know, the widescreen edition of "The Last Unicorn" is finally being released on DVD next month (February). What you may not know is that Peter S. Beagle, the author of the book upon which the movie is based is in a dispute with the production company over their refusal to pay him any of the royalties owed to him. Therefore, any purchase of these DVDs doesn't benefit Beagle in any way.

However, there is a way around this. Beagle has been granted the right to sell the DVDs as a merchant, and thereby gain some benefit (50% of the proceeds) from the sales through the Conlan Press site. You can read more here:

http://www.conlanpress.com/youcanhelp/

And order an Autographed copy here:

http://www.conlanpress.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc

If you don't want an autographed copy, the spot to order it is at the bottom of the page above.

So, please place your orders through Conlan Press and support Peter S. Beagle!

Hi,

Due to real life we will be unable to attend the LA Worldcon so we
have two attending adult memberships for sale. I'd like $175 each for
them but am open to offers (vet bill of $1300 lurking in the shadows)

The current rate is $200 and I assume it will be more at the door

Please contact me at laetitia @ doverkeep.com (remove spaces) if interested.
