The Last of Three Brothers

Our enormous ginger tom cat “George” is back in hospital tonight. After a major operation last week to save his life, complications arose over the weekend. We did the math, and it came down to saving his life for a second time and wiping our savings out, or having a difficult conversation with the children.

We now have no savings.

The operation went well, and he’ll be home in a few days. Our bank account may take six months to recover though. I guess we’ll be getting used to beans on toast for quite some time.

  1. It’ll be okay, sweet orange cat. 💞And your dad will just have to get his act together, write something amazing, and submit it to someone who publishes words- that will top up his bank account. It’s time, Jonathan. Just do it. ☀️


  2. I’m sorry that George is not doing well. I hope the recovery from surgery goes smoothly and you have tons more memory-making time with him.


  3. Such an emotional story, life happens and we do have challenges at times. It’s important to stay strong and fight, money will come but health is subjective.
    Take care of your family and George! 🙂
