  1. Sunday's social media share of the day:


  2. Saturday's message:  It's OKAY!

    - to make mistakes
    - to have bad days
    - to be less than perfect
    - to do what's best for you
    - to be yourself

    Hoping everyone's having a good weekend.

    Love to you all!  :throb:

  4. It really was an accident...and let me add that if he was still mad about that EMPTY chair rolling over his tail....he definitely got me back with interest, because he clawed and bit my leg in ADDITION to splitting my charger into two!

  7. A little note of encouragement.  Happy Thursday, everybody!  :throb:


  8. A little Friday message to those of you who may need to hear this:



    1. Free2Fly


      I guess I needed to hear that I guess... I don't know.

      safe hugs :hug: if ok?

  9. Came across this gem on my newsfeed on social media and wanted to share with everyone here.  It is imperative to be compassionate to yourself in times of difficulty. Self-care is a great way to do that to help yourself heal. It is giving yourself permission to pause, to love yourself, to be kind to yourself and remember that you are just human and you are doing your best.  :throb:   Sending you all love and safe hugs!!

      Thank you Cap. I forget all the time about self care.

    3. Iheartcupcakes


      This is excellent. Bathing in the ocean is definitely cleansing and spiritual for me. I make time for this every time I go home. 


    4. Hawkgirl


      Thank you Cap for this.  I didn’t realize self care was quite so multifaceted.  

  10. For those of you who are also having mixed feelings seeing the Mother's Day posts on social media: I'm with you.  Wishing you a happy day if you're celebrating and holding your hand if you're not.  :throb:

      Thank you.  It is hard for me to see people post about relationships with their mothers on facebook when I have never had a good relationship with my mom.  

    3. heartofamethyst


      Thank you so much for posting this. I have such mixed feelings about this day. One because I do not have a great relationship with my mom and two because due to my abuse I may never have kids.

      Thank you Cap

  11. Salem is here to say hello.  He is modeling one of my hand-made SAAM bands - yes, I did take it off after this picture was taken as it's not a 'regulation' collar, but here's our boy's contribution to the observance of Sexual Assault Awareness Month!  Teal is a nice color on him, isn't it?

    3. Capulet


      Thank you, everyone.  It was a tough night without having to get up and check on him to make sure he's had some water/food and had gone to the bathroom, etc, something I've been doing relentlessly for the last month.  

      I miss him SO much, already.  

      Thanking you all for your love and support. :throb:

  21. Our boy has stopped eating and has showed that he is unable to continue the fight.  He has been a true warrior and has hung on for a month following losing function of his hind legs - and someone wise did say that extra time he gave us was truly a gift.  But - he's now telling us he is exhausted and we've had to make the most heartbreaking decision we've ever thought possible - our sweet Dexter will be making his way over the Rainbow Bridge tomorrow.  I am absolutely devastated.  Pocket riders appreciated for the next 24 hours as we prepare to say goodbye to the most lovable and faithful fur-baby we've ever had.

      Oh no!  Best wishes to you and yours as you take this next step.

      Sitting with you all


    4. Iheartcupcakes


      I talked to you elsewhere but wanted to also reply here. You are so loved and supported. I am so sorry, dear friend. 

  22. Continued good vibes needed, please, for our cat, who has lost all function of his hind legs and is unable to walk.  Still, he is a fighter and has been surprising us day after day with his strength and will to keep going.  Although his prognosis is not good, he is calling all the shots, and he's not finished, yet.  He is looking especially handsome today, so both he and his Mama are accepting hugs and positivity!  :throb:

      @snmls, @Free2Fly, @EmptyInside -

      I've an unlimited supply of hugs - it's amazing how much of a difference they can make for someone.  So - continuing to dish 'em out upon request - and yes, I'd LOVE some in return.  Thanks, all.  I'm so grateful for my AS family.

  24. Merry Christmas to you all - if this is a time that brings you joy - I wish you all of the blessings possible and hope your holiday was a truly wonderful one.  If this season is one of your struggles, I wish you peace and comfort - hang in there - it is almost behind us. :)  Either way, sending you all lots of love - no holiday required for that.  So grateful for all of you.  :throb:
