A horse tail 'belt'
One large coyote skull, all teeth intact
Three fox tails, black, white, and red.
I am open to reasonable offers. Everything is in excellent condition.
Our oldest cat, Peaches (16 and some change yrs old), is not doing so well. He's always been on the skinny side, but now is losing weight despite eating normally. He sleeps more, which is normal for a cat his age, but is acting odd. It seems like dementia or Altzheimers...he sits upstairs in the hallway or bathroom, staring off into space blankly. He occasionally meows/yowls for no apparent reason. When I go upstairs to snuggle him, he seems surprised to see me there, but quiets down and cuddles with me happily enough. He's eating normally, and not drinking more than usual nor flooding his litterbox. (signs of diabetes)
We've spoken with our vet, who has suggested starting out with kitten food to get extra calories in him and see about improving his weight. If this doesn't work we'll have to look into blood tests and such, to see if we can't discover the problem. I'm really hoping the food does the trick, not just for finances but because hauling him to the vet to be poked and prodded stresses him out quite a bit.
Where you all come in is this. I am a firm believer in positive thinking and good energy. So if you all could just spare a moment of your day thinking good thoughts for Mr. Peaches, o him healthy and happy and doing well.....that would be amazing. If you know other 'pet parents' or animal lovers, spread the word. We aren't asking for money, or donations....just a few seconds of our time to wish another creature well and hope/believe in their recovery. Peaches has been with me, and my best friend, for nearly half of my life. I can't imagine my life, or this house, without him. Yes, I know nothing lasts forever, but I'm not convinced our boy doesn't have a few good and happy years left! Sp please, if you can spare just a moment of your day, or a few to help spread the message, I'd be eternally grateful.
Thank you all so much!

Long story short the car would cost substantially more to fix than it's worth. Like, by more than double.
So today we did something neither of us have EVER done before, as all our previous cars were inherited from relatives that didn't need them anymore or purchased from friends. We went Car Shopping.
It was....an adventure. One that ended fairly depressingly. The upside is we got to test drive a Prius. I cannot adequately verbalize the pure awesomeness of this car. It was soooo quiet, you almost didn't know it was running. And 48mpg city? Hooo yes please!
Downside? The asking price is 16995$ for a 2006 with 6k miles on it. Which according to the dealer leaves us at 329$ a month with 1000$ down. Hmmmm.....financing rape? Why yes, thank you, and could you bend over just a little mo....oooooo, yeah, that's the spot.
So for now, online research. Then we gird our loins and meet our foe on the field of battle, armed with online statistics and blue book values.
Madness? This. Is. Car Shopping!!!!!!!!!
