I'm sorry I don't check this thread often enough. Good thoughts going out to those Gini's brother and everyone else who needs them.
I'm so sorry to hear that you lost your job, Laura. Maybe you could try Petco/Petsmart? That way, though the pay isn't great, you can get a discount on pet supplies too. Best of luck to you!
Kay, I'm very saddened to hear that your Memaw isn't feeling well. I'll be keeping her in my thoughts. I hope she (and you, I hate being sick) will be feeling better soon.
