Update

by CountryThreads on July 16, 2017

I am working hard to resolve my dog problems.  I will post the results when I think I have a solution.

The community remains devastated by the loss of crops and property from the hailstorm a week ago.

I’m not sewing because I’m too busy with dogs.  Maybe this week I can get back to it.

I’m keeping my fingers crossed that a solution will happen soon!

Also, looking for kitty homes. Are the 3 left all females??

Seriously, have you thought about contacting Cesar Milan, the Dog Whisperer? He deals with this kind of problem all the time and could solve your situation. Just a thought.

We miss you!! Finally saw some coverage on the national news about your area devastation. It makes us all feel so bad for you and your neighbors. Is it too late to replant the corn crop??

I sympathize. I have a cat problem. I rescued the sweetest little stray kitty . She was hiding in the cotton field and nothing but skin and bones. Very friendly. Problem – my two female cats hate her and chase her under the bed. She is afraid to come out of her room, or even out from under the bed unless I am there. My vet says she is about six months old and has been spayed. He says maybe time will solve the hostility problem. I don’t want to get rid of her, she is so playful and trusting. It’s hard.

Mary Says Sew! July 17, 2017 at 11:25 am

A great resource for working through cat behavior problems is Jackson Galaxy’s “My Cat from Hell” TV show on Animal Planet. He helps cat guardians with all kinds of cat troubles, including cats living in the same house but not in harmony. I highly recommend it!

Galaxy’s also written a book, maybe two.

You might find ways to integrate your new kitty in with your other two, Paula. And thank you for rescuing her.

Farming is such a hard life. The devastation is heart breaking. Farmers are strong and special people. Praying that the community will come together and help each other recover.
Sorry that on top of this you are having doggie problems. It’s so hard when we love them, but it’s just too hard to keep them.
Praying

I miss your friendly posts. Want you to know how much I appreciate your love of life and love of animals. The storm pictures were disturbing to see and can only imagine the anxiety of your friends. Hoping the dog problem will resolve itself.

Mary, you do what you have to do. We miss hearing from you BUT we know that “Life happens” and we will only say that you and yours are in our prayers. The crop damage is devastating to see and hope that most have crop insurance but it never covers everything.

So, do what you have to do and know that we will be waiting to hear from you when you can.

We pray for you and I worry about the stress you must be having. Careful that it doesn’t affect your health. I miss your blogs and have been worried for you but we all understand you have a lot on your plate now. I see by the time of the first responses there are so many of us thinking of you and with so many prayers and love being sent to you “this too shall pass.”

I grew up in Hampton, Iowa. I was down there right after the storm and it’s so devastating to see all the damage. So I have many prayers for all the farmers and community affected by those storms.

I have said alot of prayers for you to resolve your dog problems. I know with time, patience, and the good Lord looking over you, he will lead you to the right decision and answers.
