That way I can document the lives of my pet family, as well as make sure I have written reminders of their well-being. For example, Beau had a UTI a few months ago.

Hey Pet Parents and Pet Lovers! Today's post is simply about a concern I have for one of my cats. I'm really starting to get nervous about Beau.

Beau is a cat who started visiting my sister just over a year ago. One night I received an excited phone call from my sister stating that Beau had just started eating from her hand and that I should come over promptly to meet the kitten. I quickly made my way to her house as I had seen pictures of the mystery cat, but had never seen him in the flesh. Beau was extremely friendly … [Read more...] about How I met my kitty Beau.
