Since Spider’s death 10 days ago, things have not been the same around here. I know that animals grieve the loss of a family member or close friend as much as us humans do, but obviously, their grief manifests in …Continue reading →
I picked up Spider’s ashes from my vets in Tías yesterday. Driving home, I “talked” to him and cried all the way home, and had to make a stop because I could not see through my tears. But the urn …Continue reading →
I wrote this song about 20 years ago before Spider & Lugosi were even born, and even though it’s about a person who had died, it seems fitting right now. 🙁 “What Shall I Do Without You” written, recorded and …Continue reading →

Almost 3 weeks ago, Spider, who turned 18 last month, was found to have a growth in his mouth, which I thought was just a bad tooth. It turned out to be a squamous cell carcinoma, one of the most …Continue reading →
Someone has been listening to the many voices of pet owners here in Lanzarote, and we now finally have a crematorium for our furbabies! I know this is quite a sad subject, but an important one too. I for one, …Continue reading →
My neighbours just lost their 10 month old ginger tom Buster, whom you probably know from previous posts and pictures on this blog.
He was run over by a car last weekend, and after putting up posters on Monday, they got a call from someone saying that they had found him dead in the street on Saturday evening. He was normally locked in at night, but didn´t return that evening.
I am so very sad about this, and so sorry for my neighbours´ loss – Buster was always around when I opened my front door, and he frequently “invaded” my apartment with his unique character and cheekiness, and would play with my 3 cats.
I miss him very much, but at the same time, I feel like I want to celebrate his life and all the joy and laughs and silliness that he gave us, and I feel grateful that he was in our lives, however short his time was on this Earth.
Here´s the video again that I made of him last month, and a few photos. Rest in Peace, sweetie. 🙁

Pompon is dead. He died at around 8am this morning. Because Claudia had to work we decided that I can care better for him at my place, and I tried everything all night feeding him with a syringe every 2 …Continue reading →
