This has been a wonderful place to camp, but now it’s time to head out for other adventures! Suck It Up Buttercup is ready, in her Christmas sweater. Scott thought he and Suck It Up Buttercup would enjoy the adventure from the trailer, but Grandma and Grandpa didn’t think so! I kept thinking “I need to remember to bring *this*”, or to pack *that*, but the whole “house” is going along this time. It’s the first time we’ve driven the motorhome away from this area since we brought it down from Montana five years ago. Now we are going 300 miles further south to Quartzsite, Arizona, and points further. Wagons ho, we’re off!
This is Suck It Up Buttercup. She is a very friendly stray cat who hangs out at our local rural butcher, the Meating Place. The owner, Terri, decided to have her vaccinated for the safety of the cat as well as her customers. While at the vet’s Office, she went ahead and had her spade so there wouldn’t be any little ones running around in the future. The vet discovered that Buttercup had feline leukemia, which is contagious to other cats, but apparently she can live a long time with the illness before she finally succumbs. Someone bought her a bed to rest in next to the store’s entrance, where she lays most of the day. Another patron decided that Suck It Up Buttercup might get cold at night, so she takes her home each evening and brings her back to the store each morning (she can’t adopt her because she has a cat of her own and is afraid of leukemia transmission to her own cat). Buttercup has gained some weight, so now has been renamed Butterball. You have to love Augusta County, Virginia!

So I thought I was okay today with the passing of my kitty, sad to see the kids sad about it; then walking in from a fun night of Bunco with the girls not knowing my Suck It Up Buttercup would be there to greet me made me so sad; these pets of ours come and go, it’s just those moments you think of when they were cuddled up on your lap, RIP Suck It Up Buttercup, I loved you sweet kitty, say hi to Jerry, Garcia and Bootsie, big Hercules too
