Calypso: 2003 - 2024


Calypso's health was deteriorating over the last couple of weeks, and we could see she was in more distress and discomfort.  So we made the difficult decision to euthanize her.  

18 years ago we adopted her (along with Zazou) from the pound, she was two at the time.

This blog was started as she and Zazou figured out how to conquer the world, finally settling on trying to master the pizza delivery process.  That didn't get very far, thankfully.

We loved the 18 years we had with her.

Gotcha Day, number 18 or so?


No, I wasn't brought home in a bag, but I like them.  Or I did, when I could get into and out of them easily.  This was in 2005, and I was 2 then.

No snacks?


Daf did not provide proper treats for this photo!  I think I’ll boycott his lap tonight.

No, probably not, it’s warm and cozy.

Starvation, dying of starvation


Dad and Mom says they're going to put me on a diet!  I can't lose anymore of my fluffiness!

The rain had stopped



Mom took me outside to get some sun and rest.  I slept in the warmth. We have had the Atmospheric Rivers hitting us all winter, so this was nice.

Been a while


Unfortunately, my arthritis has been getting worse and that makes it difficult to get around.  Had an X-ray done and it’s in my hips, and mom and dad are trying a new medication to see if that helps.  Mostly I spend time under the stairs in my nest, or on my dads lap.
