I had to take Opal the Siamese to the Vet. She has probably a week or so to live.

I am fucking crushed. She’s been my friend for so many years… went through the Exile with nary a gripe (Not true… Siamese always gripe).

The next few weeks for her are going to be about the best of the best, and if I can make my magic work, even better. She’s a;most 21 years old. She has seen me through the best and the worst. She’s my budzo.

Please send good thoughts… I need a circle of power… I don’t want to lose my little girl. I want her to be able to live in her home, the flooded one, for one more time. I want to see her sunning in the courtyard.

BTW- Tomorrow makes 29 months since the Federal Flood of our home and those of so many others. May the Goddess damn any and all of the shits that have prevented all of us from returning home these many months.


  1. Blessings and love to Opal, you, Betts and the other kit-tays. (((hugs)))

  2. Oh darlin, I’m so sorry! My cats and I send our best. It is hard to lose a child, particularly a siamese….

  3. Thanks for the good thoughts folks.

    Opal isn’t in pain, just old and a little weak. These next two weeks or so are the conclusion of a long and good life. When the time comes, she will be here with us in the hovel or the big house in her familiar surroundings. She will be with us.

    I can’t stand having to go out with the contractors to buy the last materials for the house right now. I’m passing on the tourney tonight, and will probably miss the Brigid Ball and all of the rest of Carnival because I NEED to be here with my little friend.

    I’m always a good mom, but right now I have to be the best friend.
