Cedar Lake in Oklahoma
Wednesday (the night before the trip): I went out to feed and Breezy’s eye was swollen almost shut. My neighbor vet came out to look at it and of course it was scratched.
Thursday morning (the day of the trip):I rush off to Burleson Equine to get meds for Breezy’s eye.
Thursday: I finally get everything packed up and ready to go. I load Breezy in the trailer then stop at the house one last time before heading out to double check that I haven’t forgotten anything plus I wanted to check on Gray Kitty too. When I went to give her goodbye kisses she started to freak out. Luckily she was in the kennel. Hubby rushed up to the house to see her screaming and throwing herself around. We were both there when she took her last breath, poor baby, I think she died of a blood clot.
Maybe all of this was I sign I shouldn’t go on my trip. I unloaded Breezy from the trailer while hubby dug Gray Kitty’s grave. We were both in tears, this was so sudden and unexpected. Just the day before she was doing so good and had eaten more than ever, I had become overly optimistic about her condition and really thought she was going to make it. She was even putting on weight. I miss her sweet little face.
I did decide to go ahead and go on my trip and I’m so glad I did. We went to Cedar Lake in Oklahoma May 11-14, 2023. The campground was beautiful but unfortunately the trails were just too rocky for our bikes. We got some rain each night and also Saturday afternoon.
And of course a short video of our trip:
