All my friends know that I'm a bit crazy when it comes to my pets - they were my children before I had children, and they are as important to me as family & friends. So when one of my pets gets ill I pretty much turn into an emotional wreck ... which describes my mood over the past several days. Buffalo Bill has been with the family for just under a year & a half and we are now on the verge of losing him. He is a young cat (no more than 3 yrs) but is in renal failure. He probably had undiagnosed congenital kidney disease but a cat fight last week, followed by surgery to repair his wounds, likely trigger the kidney disease. He has been in the hospital for 4 days and we find out today whether the treatment is working and his kidneys are rebounding or whether the damage is permanent (and thus fatal). Instead of embarking on a weekend of self-recriminations (I never should have let him go outside) and homicidal fantasies (the cat that hurt him stalks him all the time - she actually chases him right to our door and sits outside of the window when he is inside) I decided to make a scrapbook page of one of my favourite sets of photos. And so, without further ado, here is Buffalo Bill at his finest:
I scrap-lifted this layout from the recent issue of Scrapbooking & Beyond Magazine. The papers and alpha are all from different lines but I love how well they coordinate with each other: fancy patterned paper is Bo Bunny (tis the season, fa la la), brown patterned paper is from SEI (Christmas mint) and the alpha is Basic Grey (bittersweet alpha).
