Annie/Mombean update

Hi All,
Annie  bled more from her mouth this morning after she gotted her medicine.  That is what makes the beans wonder how much longer she has wif us. Annie  is active but we wonder how much longer she will be able to eat if the cancer  continues to get worse. She still like to be around us kits esp her daughter, Olivia  and granddaughter, Mia.  They often lie togefur/near one another in a black pile.

We appreciates efurryones concern for us and da beans. Mom's job is ending cuz it is a temporary adjunct position. Even so, spending half her meager paycheck on gas money does not make sense. Given the hours she works,  she is making less than minimum wage. So she really wants to find a job in our town.  Much less commuting costs and hopefully less stress worrying about things that should be done but people don't want to pay to do it. If any of you has been adjunct, you probably understands esp if you have taught somewhere they don't get what it takes to teach.

We continue to send purrs and purrayers to Annie and to you all.

The mom works at a university (staff, not faculty), and she knows how much the term adjuncts make per half-credit course. Not enough if you're only teaching one or two courses a term, that's for sure.

Paws crossed for you all, and when it's Annie's time to go to the Bridge, we purray for a quick and gentle crossing.

*Kitty kisses* from us.

We are still sending many purrs to Annie. We hope she continues to do well.
I heard from ML yesterday and I am going to start getting the auction ready to go. I think Jan is going to some graphics for the header.
Also if you have anything that we can put on the auction, let me know. It really helps if the person who the auction is for participates too. Just send me an email with a picture and a small description and a starting price.

We'll continue to purr for everyone. Our mom used to be a professor and she knows that the universities like to use adjuncts because they are "cheaper". It doesn't mean they aren't as effective and worth more. Good luck.

Oh, purrs from us!

We continue to send supportive purrs to all of you. We know how distressing it is that Annie bleeds when she gets her A/Bs, but as long as she is happy, grooming able to eat, it's not time. The blood probably doesn't even bother her. She is happy to live from day to day. Do cuddle with her and share how much you love her. We love her too.

We purr you can find a local job that pays a reasonable wage. Not always an easy thing. All the stress you are all going through makes it just that much tougher to handle each thing. Purrrrrrrrrrrrs.
