A sad announcement about Molly A.

We received word this evening that Molly A.  had to be set free.   She was struggling with auto-immune reaction and she was no longer able to fight to stay with her family and loved ones.    She passed away with her friends and family with her, including our cousin.

This is not the Molly F. that is one of our current cousins, rather this is a former cousin.  Molly was one of our cousins fosters that was in danger of becoming a permanent member of their home when she was adopted out to another home nearby.   Their family needed a house of golden love and Molly attached herself to them.  Her family were friends of ours and we were in regular contact.   We are sorry to report on the loss of one of our friends and 2nd cousins.    Her home was just a block from Butter's new home.     Molly had one talent that was worthy of note.    When you pointed your finger at her and "shot her" she would roll over and play dead.    She also would roll over and play dead when you asked her "which would you rather be, a dead dog, or a Democrat?  You could never guess her political affiliation. 

Sunday evening our cousins had a close call with Molly F.   Molly F. managed to get her mouth around a Buffo toad in the back yard of their home.  Buffo toads are poisonous and Molly had held the toad in her mouth long enough to get a lot of the poison secretions in her mouth.   It was a very tense night as they monitored her to make sure they had washed her mouth out adequately.    A full story will be posted soon on how to deal with this problem, but thank heavens for the Internet, you can find critical information in moments and deal with unexpected cases of poisoning.

We went through the diary today and discovered that Butter was our 56th foster.  It seems that only a few days ago we were celebrating our 50th, Honey and Butter, the pair that found a wonderful home in New Mexico.   My how time flies.  We are cleaning the house and doing some chores, but we will be getting more fosters as soon as the house is clean again.

  2. I'm so sorry Mogley. She's in heaven now.

    I'm glad you were able to de-toad Molly F. I had no idea toads were poisonous!

  3. We are sorry Molly A. had to go. She sounds wonderful, and we had to laugh out loud about her political statements! I have never heard of Buffo toads and will have to see if we have them here. Glad Molly F is okay!!

  4. So Sorry about Molly A, she is running free at the Bridge with no illness and she knew a loving home. She was also very wise in current political events.

    Glad you got the toad from Molly F. I know they have those in Florida but did not realize they were also in your neck of the woods.

    Please tell Molly F. she will have to kiss a lot of frogs to find her prince...and leave the toads alone.
