Rainy day company

Living in Florida, you would think I would get used to storms.
Not quite.
When I heard about hurricane Irene, I started to quiver. The fact that it's geared toward the Carolina's didn't comfort me. 

Yet having Gatsby as company made me feel at ease. I was glad to have my furry companion by my side during the cold, wet, rainy weather. Although I spent my time reading and catching up on Happy Endings and Modern Family, I didn't feel so alone. 

It's amazing how pets can fill you with joy when you feel so empty. Today wasn't one of the best of days, but Gatsby was there when I needed him most. And that makes me smile. 


  1. He is such a sweetie! Our human says she'd never be able to leave for work in the mornings if Gatsby were living here. :-)

    Hey, but how come she can leave *us*?

    BTW, we're not sure how Irene is tracking at this time (we're in Ontario, Canada), but we hope you'll all be safe.

  2. Pets are great comfort. WE hope it was not too scary!
