October in Review

Looking Back

Remember how bad July and August was? October was way worse, folks. I started the month with two and ended it with one. It still doesn't feel real. I am still hoping I will open the door and find Casey waiting to be let in. I also feel pretty depressed every time I open the door and she is not there. Casey has appeared on my blog and Instagram so many times over the years. She really was the best cat. I am just not as fond of Finn as I was of Casey, he is not cuddly at all, so I am really finding the house empty. Thank goodness for Mackie!

  1. Well, reading wise it looks like you did well. I still keep hoping I'll see on Instagram or here that Casey is home! Im so sorry she's gone.

  2. I'm so sorry that Casey still hasn't come home. :( I really do hope she comes home. *hugs*

  3. I'm so sorry about Casey and know just how you feel. My grey cat Riley has been missing since the end of September and I've just about given up hope. She's disappeared before and came back mad as can be and wanting dinner NOW so I keep hoping but it's never been this long. I hope November is better for you.

  4. I'm sorry it has been such a difficult month. I hope Casey turns up safe and sound.

    Looks like you read some good stuff this month. I'm itching to get my hands on The Geek Feminist Revolution and Geminia. I'm also keen to hear what you think of Karen Memory.


Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

I am so sorry, but I turned anonymous commenting off. I have had it from the very beginning, but that is how the spam is getting by my spam filter at the moment. If it is a big deal I will turn it back on and moderate all comments. I also changed moderation from older than 14 days to older than 7.
