Gentleman LuLu by codifyer

LuLu is a beautiful Boy.

Many years ago he was found near death from terrible injuries.

He lost any eye.

He healed.

Though if you come too close too fast, he’ll shy or cry in complaint.

He and I were new friends when I took this picture.

Crept in quietly as he slept.

Gently put my knee on the bed then leaned in to get a overhead shot.

LuLu slowly stretched his leg out toward me until his long paw almost touched my leg.

With his eye closed.

My Travel Kitty #2

Most kitties don’t like travelling unless they’ve been used to it from an early age.

As a full-time pet sitter, I am very lucky to have a cat who loves me more than fear.

He travels with me almost everywhere.

He found me when he was already several years old.  He’d been abandoned and managed to survive intact, except for his foot which is a bit mangled, in-spite of  black widow spiders, drunk drivers, packs of coyotes and other feral critters of desperate temperament and violent behavior.

So after I took him in, we headed North. The auto trip was his first, no doubt.

Keeping animals calm is key to helping them cope with changes in routine.  Even meeting new people can be stressful.

There are several brands of herbal and homeopathic supports available.

Bach Flower Rescue Remedy is a trusted formula safe for dogs and cats. Check if your pet is on any other medication that there’s no complication before giving anything.

Start several days ahead of travel or event by giving only 1 drop in a small bowl of water or in wet food, am & pm.

Keep eye out for any negative reaction. If all is well, use as needed for up to 10 days.

There are other supports for daily use. Contact me by message for more information.

1ooo miles later, when we landed at the Ester Lee Hotel, Lincoln City, Oregon, Indigo felt confident and relaxed enough to walk on the sill of a window overlooking the wide open Ocean.
