I think that the person that shot Mack, the cat, is an idiot. Cruel human monster. In todays Expressen web-tv we can se images of how Mack was shot in the head by an arrow. Pets are family members. Some people only have their pets as companions in today’s society. The person that shots a pet is risking the life of a family member. I think it is cruel and inhumane.
I am hoping that anyone who knows people who are cruel to animals report them to the authorities. I wish Mack’s shooter gets the punishment the person deserves. Report that person if you have any knowledge, please.

Tomorrow it is Lucia in Sweden. My kid is dressing as a ginger cookie-person. Just saying. Not rasist. Nor are the kids in Ku-klux-klan-look a-like clothes. Just saying. Swedish tradition. Celebrating a saint in Christianity. Very Nordic tradition in the Nordic countries.
This week I have been both leaving and fetching the kid at kindergarden. I usually just leave the kid there. However. It is almost better when we are all alone. The kid is so well behaved and has the best of manners all this week. Perhaps I am more predictable. I allways do everything on rutine. I have noticed that this kid likes routines. So I even try to make changes on purpose, just so the kid doesn’t get to OCD.
Well. I actually was home alone on Sunday morgning too. The kid didn’t wake me up. I was able to sleep until 11.00. I thank God for that. I needed to sleep. I still do. I hope I will be able to sleep in this weekend too. This year only has nine work days left. I also have a interview booked. I am hoping for an employment, if not permanent than at least a temp job. It is a tuff job market, but I have… five educations of some sort. Haha. It is absurd. I have a education from high school. I have a university degree. Then I have also studied other subjects for many years that I, if I bothered to write a essay, could have another degree too. Hmm. Just the essay missing… well, perhaps. What am I going to write about? I did start like 14 years ago with the essay, but didn´t finish. Perhaps I could find it somewhere on a floppy disk… I have a old computer up on the attic… perhaps I could use that to read it. Haha. The modern machines have no floppy drive. Well. Then I have another type of education, a technical education too, one that consists of a number of certificates. Then I have another type of private education from a private school. That I paid for and read on the side of my job. Well. Perhaps that is enough education for you? I have a total of nine years of full time studies at the university. Haha. And for each credit I think I know even less. That is the point with education. You learn you really do not understand a shit about the world. We are just guessing all the time. About everything really.
Well. I am sitting in the sofa. The kid is sitting in the living room with me. The kid is singing. The TV shows “Go’kväll”. A variant of God Morgning shows, but for the evening. They show food, celebrities, talk about current events with “feel good theme”, fashion and other things. Very light entertainment really. Not dangerous for kids. The kids likes to see all stuff they teach. Smart kid. Perhaps smarter than another. Most likely. It is not to difficult to be smarter than me, afterall a average person with a uncommon life history.
Well. The snow outside is terribly uncomfortable. I gotten used to the cold now. I have had to run in the snow every day this week. For the bus. I am rather big size, but I run faster than the skinny. Every time I am there faster than the others. Surprise. Don’t judge a book by its cover. Since I am allways in the last minute I have to run far to often.
Well. Today we are all alone, the kid and the pets and me. The spouse is off to a traditional christmas dinner. In the weekend we ate christmas dinner as a couple. At IKEA. Haha. Well. IKEA has child care, so that was a good option to use. The kid is happy and we get time alone to eat. Win-win for all parties. Just saying.
Well. The kid did notice the door was complete (still missing door handle). But the kid didn’t say anything about the print on the cloth. The kid however noticed it’s own made christmas decoration in the flower pot. “That is mine”. The kid is snowed in to the words “It’s mine”. I wish the kid wasn’t. Better to share. Not all are as fortunate to have everything they need. Especially at christmas.
Well. I haven’t read the news to much today yet. I am going to now. See you!
It cannot be easy to be fury. One pet of mine had poop stuck in the fur and had dragged its behind over three carpets, the hallway and over our sofa. Nice and shitty. My pet was shitty indeed. So today I have been cleaning the coach. I have removable covers, that is necessary when having pets. Well. And then finally I have cleaned the pet. Not a joyful job… but necessary. I know the pet isn’t found of water but I had to help it. Otherwise I would have to clean even more. So a shitty little pet indeed is now a clean pet with wet fur…
Today I got the ID-badge for my pet. It was pretty and on the chain, costumfitted for my pet was a little silverhart. When it´s time we will place it around my pets neck. I also got a wonderful photo from a photographer that once photographed me with my pet. I have gotten the photo printed at a photo boutique and I had i lamelled. The photo will also be placed inside the box.
Now all preparations for the funeral are done. I will place my pet close to it´s adopted pet and the pet´s mother. They are both buried there. It´s a nice place just next to the woods, overlooking a meadow.
There my pet will have it´s final rest. I don´t believe the container with notes will sustain until archeologiests in the future look around, but if it doesn´t rust then they will have a message indeed and know the pet´s story if it´s possible to read the messages. It´s not important, but for me it´s giving a message to the life after death. It´s a tribute to my pet and for all the years we had. A way for me to show my respect.
None of us really know what happens when we die, but we can all have our belifs. I hope we take another form and that life goes on and this is also what I belive. But what form it is and how it happens I have no idea. I only have my belifs.
Today my spouse phoned me at lunch and said that my pet had died. And my spouse cried. Then my spouse saw the pet wasn´t dead. It was however dying. It was unconcious. I told my spouse to wet a cloth with not cold nor hot water, “ljummet” we call it in Swedish. The pet licked the lips. So even though it was unconcious it still was living. Breathing very lightly. My spouse moved the pet from underneath the bed to a blankett on the floor and made it as comfortable as possible. Tested if it could take 1/8 of a pain killer for pets, but the pet spit it out. I told my spouse to let the pet be. Unfortunately my spouse couldn´t stay home. When I got home, first one in the family I found the pet dead. Naturally. So not to much suffering until yesterday. But then my pet didn´t want to leave and be put down at the vet´s. My pet has been with me and seen us do the procedure with other pets. A smart pet that knew what I was thinking and how I was feeling through life. Smart indeed. I admire the little pet. I admire it so. I am so thankful for God giving a long life with natural release in the end to my wonderful friend. My lovely pet. I am gonna miss my pet for a whole lifetime.
I have prepared the funeral for the pet. Tomorrow I will get the neckless with a ID-badge, just like soldiers have, not the same, but somewhat. On the ID-badge is the birth date and death date. The birth is marked with a star and death with a cross. And the first name and surname of the pet. On the back it says R.I.P, but in Swedish. With my pet we have written notes and put in a container and put that inside plastic. Also a small pet toy is included. The carton is just a old NIKE carton. I have remodelled it with wallpaper and made it nicer looking. I have then gently rapped a cloth around the pet and placed it inside. I like to have these routines. My first pet, many, many years ago, died suddenly and we were lucky to find it outdoors dead. We had a funeral in all haste. No neckless, just a box and into the ground. But for all other pets we have done like this, not had nice cartoons, but neckless and box with messages. Later on a little more advanced by each pet.
Well, when you are old, many pets have been in your life if you are pet owner. Now I have some pets left, so I will still have companions, but none like this old wonderful smart pet. I was lucky to be the owner. I was lucky indeed. I love my pet and will remember it for a lifetime. Have you ever lost a pet? Did you do anything special for the pet?
Sometimes we have to make tuff decisions, even if we do not want to make them. For animals we have the possibity to end suffering, for humans it’s illegal in Sweden. But we can stop life support, that is somehow a way of help. I have a old pet. The last week this pet has gotten really sick. I allready knew that something was wrong a while ago. The vet told me in the spring. I got a method to make my pet gain back weight it had lost and the summer was fine. However the final 2 weeks the pet has eaten a lot and the body is shutting down functions I believe since the pet has lost allmost all it’s body fat. It has still been a lovely pet, but not this weekend. Now it’s time. Time to make a decision. I know this pet allready understands. I put out the box asking my pet to go into it so the pet could have his eternal sleep. But my pet complained and with very shacky legs it didn’t go in. Went to try and drink water instead. I think my pet didn’t want to die today. Well see tomorrow. I don’t like making these decisions. I just wanted my pet to die in its sleep, with no pain, with no hospitals. Why don’t the vet make house calls? I wish the pet could be let do die at home instead of in a hospital room. I feel sad that my pet had to get this sick as this weekend. I was about to leave this evening, but I have a smart pet and its choice was to have one more night. We’ll se if it happens tomorrow or not. On Friday it will happen if it don’t happen earlier.
I wish I could have done something. But if the body is shutting down and the pets will to live isn’t enough to keep the pet alive and functioning there is not much I can do. But still my pet is a pet. Smart, intelligent, eager to do it my pets own way. One real smart pet if I may say. I think life sometimes is unfair. The body should just continue to work and then we should just die, but we seldome do. I have given the pet pain killers today… I do not know if the pet is in pain. If it is, then it isn´t now.
I didn’t want to put the pet down in haste. In the spring I thought the pet was dying and it recovered within a week, but this time… I don´t understand how my pet should recover loosing so much power and weight. It´s hard to make a decision like this. But I have to. I don´t want my pet, that has been a friend all my adult life, to be in pain or suffer. Well. It´s never fun. It´s allways difficult when a family member is dying. I wonder how long it would take for the pet to die naturally? I wish I had the answer and also if someone could say when the pet suffers. Right now the pet is still somewhat a pet and can still eat, pie, drink and such… but it´s very oldish in style. Like a old, old, person.
Well. Live if full of tuff decisions. Not all fair. Not all black or white. But I try not to do things in haste. I live to regret in haste. So instead a little more time. We only have one life as us.
Haha. Yes its true. A cat bullied its neighbours cats. One day the cat got indoors and ate their food. Then the family caught the cat and called the police. I read it yesterday. The cat was said to be fat and in good condition so I thought it had a family. The cat got back home, according to Aftonbladet.se today. Good for the cat, if no owner had been found he would have been put down.
I wonder what the owner thought when he saw is cat on the news headers? Haha. I can guess my youngest pet also would bullie the neighbourhood pets, but he would try to be friends with them. He isn´t scared of anything. He is like half the size and also like a small procentage of the other pets age. He is really a menace. Just like Dennice the Menace. He has broken at least 5 things so far… and other things to perhaps.
The owner is said to going to castrate him and have him chip-marked, according to Aftonbladet.se. That is good, much of the mentality is in the balls. And beeing chip marked at least the police will know its owner in the future. I am glad this tuff cat got home. He also has a right to live. Perhaps beeing castrated he wont care about the neighbourhood cats as much.
