Day 2683: Don’t even talk to me unless …

Don’t even talk to me unless you are

DO even talk to me about what you see in this post.













I can’t even talk about how anxiety-provoking it is when an animal is sick, because they can’t even talk to you about how they’re feeling and I can’t talk to Oscar about the ultrasound he’s having today.

Are these two people even talking to each other?


Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda can really talk about friendship.


Don’t even talk to me unless you accept my appreciation and thanks that you showed up today, exactly the way you are.

  1. Such a cute cat. I thank you and appreciate you for such a nice post.

  2. Biggest of hugs. 🙂

  3. and don’t even talk to me unless it’s okay for me to talk to you. i hope the vet talks to you today to give you positive news.

  4. I’m talking about great hopes for good news about Oscar today, Ann.

    • Thanks for your great hopes, my great friend. The news about Oscar was bad but we’re happy we’ll still have our good cat for a little while.

  5. Ann, I can see from your photos that Oscar does not feel well. I hope the vet can help him feel a little better, even if he can’t make him young and strong again. The other thing I see in the photo is that Oscar is very, very loved.

    Please give him a gentle hello from me.
    I hope he does not mind the ultrasound too much.

    • Oscar did not seem to mind the ultrasound and we’re going to do our best to help him feel a little better in the short amount of time he has left with us. Thanks for another loving comment, my friend.

  6. This is marvelous, Ann. I reposted it on my FaceBook page. I loved the friendship Ted Talk.

  7. Love these ground rules and your furry friend:). We could all use one right now!

  8. ….unless it’s good news about Oscar. It’s gotta to be good news, my friend! (≚ᄌ≚)ℒℴѵℯ

    • It was not good news, my friend, but the good news is that Oscar is still with us.

      • I’m so sorry to hear that. Just take one day at a time, my dear friend. Big hugs,

    Keep us posted about your cat, Oscar.

    • Oscar has cancer and we’re going to do our best to make sure that his remaining days are as pain-free as possible. Thank you for another caring comment.

  10. I see self distraction, a facet I’m sure you try to help others avoid. I hope Oscar is fine and that the nail is soon a thing of the past!

  11. I hope Oscar gets a good report from the vet. And talks to you. But not about nails.

  12. I could talk so much about the wonderful friendship between Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda, but what could I say that they haven’t already? I’ll just add that long friendships are a great thing, and even though we’ve never really met, Ann, I feel we’ve had a very long friendship.
