It’s Wednesday, but it has been so long since I posted, I just can’t be wordless! My plan is to be back full time beginning tomorrow. So, actually, I guess that makes it today. I have so much to tell you I hardly know where to start. In the next few days, I’ll do a post about the Butte Fire and our evacuation experience. That’s what started my hiatus and then things just kept happening. Hopefully, things are kind of back to normal and mom will have time and the mental ability to type my stories.
We are so lucky here that we see no evidence of the fire, either from our home or anywhere mom drives on a regular basis, even though it was so close. Tomorrow will probably be hard. She has a meeting in San Andreas and will likely be driving by a lot of the burn area.
The modifications to our cat tree continue. Yesterday, mom bought carpeting for the new shelf and a fancy electric staple gun to attach it. She tried the regular staple guns but decided her old, arthritic hands just aren’t strong enough for them. The men helping her at the store said even their hands get tired with the regular ones if there are a lot of staples and she will need to do a lot. The carpet cost $3. The staple gun to put it on cost $30. Hmmm…
A while back, I told you about a pawsome prize I won from 15andmeowing. Some of you wondered if Echo ever got to play with the toys after Ocean put the bitey on him. Echo politely waited until Ocean … Continue reading →
You may have seen the post about what Ocean did to the (not so) new (now) cat tree while mom was gone to BlogPaws. Well, he has continued to have his way with it.
I have to admit, this tree is not the sturdiest, and for it’s size, this result is not that surprising. Also, the old mom says she may not be able to get it as tight as it needs to be to the ceiling.
Whatever the reason, mom was tired of fixing it and decided to remodel it. Ocean is sad because she removed is favorite part — the poles that went to the ceiling.
She put a shelf all the way across the top and put two of the tubes on it. The tubes used to be hanging down and we never used them. She thought maybe we would if they were on top. Ha! We have … Continue reading →
I’ve been doing my best to stand in for Christy here at the BlogPaws Conference in Nashville and I sure have been having a good time. We’ve met so many wonderful people, both bloggers and vendors. I thought I’d share a few photos with you so you can get an idea of what it’s like here and Christy can see what a good job I’m doing.
The mom person met some of the bloggers, kitties and vendors without me on Thursday while I stayed in the room, but I was on the job all day today, Friday.
Hi Friends. I had planned to show you photos of the beautiful flowers on our deck today but it rained all day yesterday so mom couldn’t take photos. The flowers are a little worse for the wear, too. The rain and a little bit of hail kind of beat some of them up. It will probably be a few days now before they are pretty enough again for a public display. And mom got even more plants yesterday (including another catnip for me!) so she needs to plant a couple more pots. It is really looking lovely and I’ll show it to you soon.
Those of you who follow me probably think we are pretty spoiled cats when it comes to … Continue reading →
Mom worked on a catification project for us the other day. She put up a shelf. Really? One shelf? She says she does have plans to put up several more shelves for us and I did hear someone say that every journey starts with just one shelf step.
Since she doesn’t have a saw and wanted to make this project as easy as possible for herself, she got pre-made shelves. She said she only got one so she could check out how the size would work for us.
She agonized for days over where to put this shelf. She just couldn’t decide. Now come on. If you are going to put up several shelves eventually, what does it matter where the first one goes? Just put it up already.
I have to say that we already have it pretty good. This is our family/kitty room, office and laundry room. Mom counted and there … Continue reading →
I was planning to post about bird TV yesterday but mom got too busy to type for me. The weather TV is predicting 3″ of rain over the next five days and mom needed to do some work on horse sister Dancer’s stall.
Off she went yesterday morning to do some shopping. She said she was so glad it wasn’t the usual kind of Black Friday shopping because she hates crowds. She and Kelly and fur buddy Dieter went to Tractor Supply for mats for the stall. What a pleasant surprise she got when the stall mats were $10 off for Black Friday. When you are buying eight, that’s a big savings!
While she was at Tractor Supply she also bought some bird feeders which she had been promising us but I guess she won’t be able to put them up until the rain stops. This will surely bring in some … Continue reading →
