If it seems I’m posting less and less here is because I am! Life has become hectic which leaves little free time.
2018 – My mother’s health is slowly declining. It’s not critical but I have found she has less energy and her breathing has gotten worse. She turned 80 and has COPD and has a knee issue she refuses to take care of with surgery. I don’t fault her for that because once you get the surgery, you can’t kneel and the recovery can be lengthy. She likes to stay active, as much as possible. We lost two of our beloved cats. We tried everything to keep them healthy but old age took them and we had them put to sleep in July and October. My exotics remained all okay. Improvements were made on Max’s enclosure. In April I put together a cool bench which converts into a table.
In November, I hired a contractor and he put in a pole barn over a portion of Max’s enclosure. Boy, it was not cheap but it looks great and we can sit on our bench without getting wet. It also gives Max a place to be without snow but still out in the area run. You might notice that I also put a pallet in there for him earlier in the summer.
We presented 12 programs in 2018…libraries, youth programs, senior center, and outdoor events. Max Lynx participated in 11 of those programs!
