A Crew Update


Lots of our friends have emailed us asking how we're doing since we haven't posted in ALMOST A MONTH! Of course, I blame this all on my secretary, aka Mom, who always claims she's "busy". Busy doing what, I'd like to know! I have plenty of time. In fact, I'M available all day, except during my nap times.

Yesterday she FINALLY let us go around and visit some friends and it was great to see everyone. We feel bad we missed out on so much that's been going on and see that there are a lot of new cat bloggers that we need to say "hi" to.

So, what have we been up do lately. Well, you all know now that we're in Arid-zone we live in our human sister's house in a bedroom/bathroom, so we haven't been up to much of anything at all. We're confined to these 2 rooms because of the dogs, Reyna and Shasta, better known as The Grey Menace and The White Dustmop. Mom says we're fine in here, that we have everything we need, and she's right. But, I must say, it gets a little lonely not being able to be out and about when we want to. Mom says as soon as we get a house of our own, when our our house in Whisk-onsin is sold, then we'll be able to be out all the time.

When Mom comes upstairs for something she always checks on us and most times I'm sleeping under the covers, just like I did in Whisk-onsin. If she bothers me, I complain. I am a geezer, you know, and I don't like to be disturbed when I'm napping. Max can usually be found sleeping on the bedroom chair or lounging around in the doorway between the bedroom an bathroom. Tipper likes to rest under the bed or on the floor under the ceiling fan and Misty likes to rest on Mom's pillow or on the cat perch where she can look outside.

Speaking of perches, we got a new one. Mom said the old one was getting rickety and was so covered in cat hair, she couldn't clean it any more. Well, I've got news for her. None of us like this new perch very much, even though she put our old quilts on the
shelves. Here you can see me snoopervising Dad when he was putting it together and our Girl is helping.

Max's "problem" of peeing out of the litterbox seems to have disappeared now that we're in a new place. Mom is really happy about that and said maybe all he needed was a change of scenery to get rid of his bad behavior. Misty and Tipper are fine and are their usual selves.

Mom and Dad had their 35 year wedding anniversary recently and went away for a few days. They fixed us up with lots of food and water and our human sister came in to check on us. We were fine, but were glad when they got back. Mom said she had lots of great pictures on her camera to show you, but our Boy took the disc out and she can't find it so now we have no good pictures.

At night, we all pile on the bed with Mom and Dad and our sleeping places haven't changed at all. As Senior Cat, I have my choice of the best sleeping spot, which is right next to Mom. Misty sleeps curled up around Mom's head like a little fur hat and Tipper sleeps in between the pillows. She likes to groom Mom during the night so sometimes Mom wakes up with wet, matted hair. Max sleeps either at the foot of the bed or in the bathroom doorway. He tried out the top shelf of the new perch, but doesn't like it, so I think he's going to let Misty have it. She'll be happy about that.

Our 2 rooms have been painted and Mom got some new covers for our big bed and fixed up our rooms really nice with pictures and stuff. She opens the blinds during the day so we can look outside. That is, if any of us chooses to get on the new perch.

The shot I got for my little cold a few weeks back helped some, but I still have a sniffly nose. Since Mom doesn't like it when I sneeze in her face at night, I might have to go back to my new Doctor and get another shot.

Well, (yawn) I guess that's about all. It's time for my afternoon nap. It's hard to have anything new to talk about when you live in 2 rooms but we'll try to get around and visit more so we can experience life vicariously through our friends.

Well it is good to hear how you are doing. I think you do need a bigger place though so I hope your home sells soon. I mean really--you're a cat. You need 20 rooms!

I'm glad to hear from you guys - I wish your house would sell and you could get your own dog-free home! I know you don't have a whole lot of space where you are right now, but have you tried moving the new cat tree to a different area? Sometimes it's not the perch but the location that we kitties don't like... or maybe one day the humans will come in and see that you've decided you like it after all! That would be a typical kitty thing to do!

Hi Crew!
That's good about Max! And what a great perch you have! It would be nice to roam the whole house, but some kitties live with their people in small apartments and that's kind of the same. Plus you have nice people visit you and there's windows for entertainment....so not too bad for now.
