Hi Buttons and Sassie!
First a note from my earthly family: Dear CC fur-pals, we once again apologize for not blogging except for Iago and Scooter's trip to Turkey. Things have not settled down here and summer is an especially busy time here with all the outside work to do. We have been leaving as many silent votes late at night for you all as we can. Mom got bad news about her dad yesterday. Hid MDS, (Mylodysplastic syndrome) has progressed as if often does, and it appears that he is probably now in full blown leukemia. Mom and her 5 sisters are all taking this hard as is mom's mom. Our mom is also dealing with her friend's situation where her husband (52 y/o), is dying of pancreatic cancer and mom is soo down in the dumps. He is getting weaker and weaker everyday and can't seem to eat or drink from the nausea and unusual taste distortion in his mouth. He has become severely dehydrated and needed to be taken in for IV fluid a few days ago. Good news is he received his last radiation therapy treatment yesterday. If you are so inclined, Please pray for Kenny. They are from southeastern IN. Mom's dad's name is Rocco. All prayers are appreciated so much!

Love,

Cindy, Betty Boop and mom Lisa
Hey CC fur-pals! Scooter and I are reporting about our 4th vacation day last Thursday. Thr first thing we did after breakfast was to see the ' Whirling Dervish Dancers” They come from the Mevlevi order from the 1200's. UNESCO proclaimed the dancing ceremony as “the masterpiece of oral and tangible heritage of humanity”.

Then, we headed off to Pamukkale, another top attraction in Turkey. It is an unusual natural and historical site. The name, 'pamukkale' means “cotton castles” from the sparkling white appearance of the landscape. Here are the thermal pools said to have scientifically proven to be a remedy to many diseases. People travel year round to sit in these pools.

The underground water at this site once gave life to the ancient city of Hierapolis and has been used as a spa since 200 B.C. WOW! Scooter and I spent the day here dipping our paws and even our whole bodies in these spectacular thermal pools. It made us giggle and we did indeed feel better and refreshed. We will be taking many pictures as you won't find this anywhere else in the world. We headed back to our hotel about an hour before sunset and had a mice gourmet dinner. We relaxed in bed reading some of the literature and history that we have acquired since our stay here.

Love to All,

Angel's Iago Diago and Scooter

Hi Buttons and Sassie!
Thank-you so much for stopping by! We have been MIA on CC for three weeks now which is a record for us! So much is going on here, but mom says she hopes to rectify that, hopefully today. Wez forgot when wez last meowed with each other. Do you know about our new feline family member Penny Lane? She was a stray and boy do we have the stories since wez caught her Feb 5th of this year. It has been very interesting around here. Wez are thrilled to hear from you both!

Love,

Betty Boop, Cindy and Angel Iago Diago!

We are privileged that our Sweet Queen Cherish, brings us all around the world on this spectacular cruise. Today We are going to be riding through mythology once again! Yet this time, its time to be battle ready. Prepare for the Battle between ZEUS AND THE TITANS! ~Kitties race through the grassy roads. Preparing to see the past with a little help from the angels!~ Angel Hercules, Angel Sarah, Angel Tiger, Angel Louie, Angel Jezebel, and Angel Pierre are going to be using their magic angel cloud dust to turn back the clock and be Time Ghosts. Being Time Ghosts is going back in time, wittnessing what wants or needs to be witnessed but not being able to interact. For instance, when we watch the Battle between Zeus and The Titans, they wont see us, hear us, feel our presence or even have the slightest thought of us in their minds. Now Who is ready to see a real battle? Okay! ~Hercules and his Angel Friends start to sprinkle magic Angel Cloud dust all over the clouds. The Clouds start to quiver and rain come pouring down, all of a sudden all of the kitties are in a large dark blue scenery with ancient artifacts all around them. Thunder booms and lighting crackles and a loud voice yells in honor at enemies. There, Zeus stands tall with a lighting bolt stretching in his fist, reading to smoke any creature who defies its creator. The Cyclops had created these strong pieces of nature that Gaia approved of. The Titans, stood battle ready. Preparing to take over Olympus. Zeus wouldent allow this, with a loud cry Zeus flung his first Lighting bolt at the horrible Titans, 300 of them were now out of the way but thousands still stood. They rampaged through Olympus, tearing everything up in their path, the sirens loured other gods to their sake, before Zeus and Hercules saved them. Zeus flew to the top of Mt. Olympus casting off his Lighting bolts on the Titans. So many were dying or weak! After many sacrifices to save his fellow gods, there is a huge rumbling. Even Mt. Olympus shakes before the mighty Zeus. The great, and powerful Leader of the Titans was not ready to lose to gods of Olympus. The Cracken! The Cracken had awoken! As it arose, the land of Olympus crumpled before Zeus and his gods. This was going to either be the end of Olympus, or the end of Zeus's brothers reign. With all the will and power held in Zeus, he struck a lighting bolt and with all his might he threw that lighting bolt right into the Crackens mouth, sending the largest ugliest beast falling to the ground and disintegrating into ashes that would forever haunt that part of Olympus. All of a sudden, the kitties were back on the roads of Ancient Greece again.~ What an EPIC BATTLE!!!

Where shall our adventures take us next?

Hi Buttons ans Sassie!
Hi furry friends! Guess what??? Youz will never believe it! After 3 weeks and one day and starting to give up all hope of ever seeing Penny again, she shows up on our deck last night to eat the new food that wez put out there! Oh, wez were soooo excited! She put on quite a bit of weight, so wez suspect that Mrs. G who lives in the cul-de-sac behind our house might be feeding her too. She looked great! She is very skittish and wary and if she see's you looking too much she'll scurry away!. I, Cindy, was sooo excited to see her. My eyes were bulging out and I was meowing a pitiful cry. I know Penny by name and when dad said her name, I just about twisted my neck off to look at him saying her name. So, mom and dad will put the trap out this weekend during the day, and then wez will see if wez will catch anything in the coming weeks. Wez hope it's not a skunk! He he he! Wez are watching out for the other kitty, Sable kitty, that showed up first yesterday early evening after the sun went down. Mom now has 2 bowls of food out since they ate up the first!

Wez have yet another twist to our story if youz can believe that, but wez will wait for tomorrow to tell you. It's very exciting, well at least for us! I, Cindy, couldn't get any sleep last night because of the activity right out the windows of my cat condo. I kept watch all night and morning long! Mom didn't get to bed til the very wee hours of the morning either as she was so excited to see Penny and know that she wasn't harmed. Funny thing is, both kitties walked right past or right around our deluxe shelter! He he he, go figure! Well, it's there rent free if theyz want it.

Congratulations to our new Queen Papoose!

Votes left for all.

Hi Buttons ans Sassie!
Hi Guys! We haven't had hardly any snow here. Wez had our first snowfall on Nov. 19th, almost a half inch, but it melted in about 12 hours. Dad did have enough to have to shovel a bit. Then, on New Years Day, wez had a beautiful snowfall, just enough big fluffy snow drifting down so prettily that eveything looked like a postcard! It's sunny and cold today. But from the inside, it looks very nice out there! Let us know what is new with you two and here is a gereral note from us:

Hi All! Sorry that wez were MIA over the Holidays, but dad had off and mom found it impossible to get on CC except to help us congratulate the COTD winner and occasionally hand out silent votes. Dad is back to work today, so things should start to get back to normal.

Wez sure did enjoy having dad home, things were a lot more active. It's mice to be able to get back to our old routine now too and wez are getting more sleep! Mom and dad got us one of the those deluxe wave cat scratchers and wez all love it! Our brother Maxwell thinks that it's his and not only uses it to scratch, but he sits in it like a recliner!

Wez had a very mice Christmas and New Years, Of course Cyndee's wedding was the Cat's Meow! Mom and dad spent New Years together at home as usual and mom fell asleep and dad had to wake her just before midnight to tell her a new year was about to be born! Wez had some pretty fluffy snow on New Years day, just enough to make it a postcard, but no real accumulation. We had a green Christmas which wez don't often have, but the temps cont. to be above normal. It was very cold yesterday, only a high of 20 and a high of 23 is predicted for today. After today, the temps are going to slowly rise again and we are suppose to get up to 43 by the weekend. Yeah!

All of us are well here.

Happy New Year!

Love,

Cindy, Betty Boop and Angel Iago Diago!

Thank-you sooo much for the compliments on my picture!Mom took them real late last night and then dad helped her post them today. I do like the camera. Mom thinks she is gonna have a much harder time with Betty Boop since she is less cooperative! Mom just got back from the vet a half hour ago with Iago and he is still pretty sick. Treatment should hold him over for the weekend. Have a great Caturday!

Hi Buttons and Sassie!
Thank-you for stopping by! Mom and dad were pretty busy. They went to mom's cousin's 50th birthday. Then, on Sunday, they went to her pawrents house to watch the football game on TV. They were happy that their team, the Packers won. Then her family all had homemade pizza.

It was cloudy and cool here, wez wish wez had 10 degrees of yours. Mom and dad left the windows and patio door open since it was still warm enough to leave open, but not for long!

Wez had a quiet day with mom today and mom is trying to catch up the best she can and help us with our blogging.

Betty Boop's eye infection is all cleared up now. It responded to treatment excellently! Thank-you so much for asking!

Wishing you a good night.

Hi Buttons and Sassie!
Oh, thank-you soo much for your note! Wez are wishing youz a good weekend too. Mom and dad went to the REAL Glenn Miller Orchestra performance tonight. They said it was pawsome! They played 2 patriotic songs and EVERYONE stood up during them. There is a spirit of unity as this weekend is upon us. Wez pray that that feeling stays. Mom is so sad about remembering it.

Yes! My ear is all better. Mom was right, it was an overgrowth of yeast in my ear. I have NEVER had that, but Betty Boop was a very sick kitty and she occasionally has it as does our brother Isiaih, who is a bit delicate too. So, I am doing the Snoopy dance!

Love U!

Hi Buttons and Sassie!
Well, we are having a sunny day here with absolutely clear skies! It's a bit windy though. It has really cooled down the past few days but now the forecast is for at least 3 days in thw mid 70's. Sounds good to us!

Mom is a little worried because there was a mandatory meeting where dad works today with one of the Vice presidents. Dad works for a company that sells mortgage insurance. (PMI). Several people were let go, including 4 from dad's immediate dept. and his boss is being demoted to a worker and another manager is going to take on his dept. along with the one he had. Scary times! So, you never know!

Hi Buttons and Sassie!
Boy, wez bet you two are glad that you don't live on the east coast right now! Wez sure are! They have lots of water, and of course wez are not fond of water, well... I guess I am, (Cindy), as long as it's coming out of a faucet! Mom found out last night that I have an over-growth of fungus in my left ear. She was messing around with me while I was lying next to here and saw dark granules on her fingers. Oh, oh, sure 'nuf, mom went and got those long applicators out and some of that Otomax ear ointment. Mom got a lot of ick out. I have NEVER had an ear problem, so mom and I don't know what's up with that. Mom used ear cleaner today, but it is still bothering me and I have been moping around the house. I don't do sick well, even if it's just my ear. Mom is sure it'll be better in a few days at the most, but I'm not feeling it right now. Anyways, wez are happy that our fur-pals are safe.

Wez stopped by late last night and left you two some SV's. Wez had a lazy day, but now wez are getting perky and ready for some action! It was overcast with sprinkles today, so maybe that's why! We're excited because our very good friend Ernie is running for COTD for tomorrow. Wez have been friends with him and his brother Steve for a long time. We are wishing you both a delightful night.

Thank-you so much for stopping by! Yeah, it seems to be warmwer than usual all around the US. Our friend Harley in TN. just Meowed us a bit ago and he told us him mom said that they are having one of the hottest summers ever. It's 94 here, which is pretty warm for our neck of the woods, and low and behold, today is the day that our A/C decided to konk out. Mom has fans going creating lots of cross breezes, so the kitchen and small family room are quite comfortable, but the bedrooms are warm and stagnant, Otherwise, everything else is "cool, te he he!

Hi From Sparkles K.
Hi Buttons and Sassie, How was basement cleaning day? Buttons, I love the pictures of you in the boxes. Sassie – did you get in the boxes too? I didn’t see any new pictures on your page when I went over there to give you a vote. I love boxes and paper bags. There’s just something cool about climbing in and out of a good box, just like you said!

Mom and Dad did a lot of riding on their motorcycles this weekend. The weather was perfect for it so they hit the back roads. Dad has really figured out his new gadget. He programs it so it tells him where to turn and it directs him right to his destination (with Mom following close behind him). That gadget’s name is “Tom-Tom”. Mom says Tom-Tom has taken them down some beautiful country roads that they never would have found by themselves. Well they may have found them, but they may not have found their way OUT right away!

Mom and Dad left me alone at the townhouse for one whole night this weekend. They rode their motorcycles to the lake house and stayed there on Saturday night without me. Sigh. I sure was happy to see them drive up the driveway Sunday afternoon. I heard their motorcycles and ran to the front window. They looked up and saw me and waved. I ran to the front door and waited for them to open up the door and walk in! I purred and meowed and rubbed all over them. I jumped up on Mom’s shoulder and pushed my head into her hair. I was so happy! Then last night when they went to bed I curled up on Mom’s tummy and purred and purred. I stretched out the full length of her torso with my hind legs right up under her chin. I was on my back with my feet sort of up in the air. Every time I stretched I kicked Mom in the face with my back feet. Mind you, it wasn’t a HARD kick; it was just one of those streeeetching kicks. I really don’t understand why Mom didn’t sleep as soundly as I did. MOL!

Hi From Sparkles K.
Hi Buttons and Sassie, Thanks for the vote. Here’s one for you (and a silent one for Sassie) . Your nap in the sun sounds nice. It’s raining pretty hard here right now. But Mom says that’s a good thing because we need the rain. If it keeps raining, I may not get to go outside on my leash today. I guess I’ll have to be content following Dad around the house. He’s coming back to the townhouse this afternoon. He and Mom are going on a motorcycle ride tomorrow. It’s supposed to be a beautiful day tomorrow with lots of sunshine. They’re going to a festival in Oswego, New York called “HarborFest”. It’s right on Lake Ontario. They’ve been to it before and said they had a good time. I don’t think I’ll be spending any time at the lake this weekend. Oh well, I guess I’ll have to nap while they’re gone.

Hi From Sparkles K.
Hi Buttons and Sassie,
I had a great day at the lake until it got really HOT!! Mom and Dad cooled off by going for a swim, but I didn’t have a place to cool off. Mom took me for a walk along the lake shore. After a little while I got so hot that I ran back to the cottage and wanted to go inside. I kept trying to find a cool spot. It was so hot! Finally, we left around mid-afternoon to go back to the townhouse. I was in Mom’s lap for the ride back (Dad was driving). Mom felt the pads of my paws and they were wet! I was sweating from my paws! Mom was so worried about me. It felt good to get back inside the air conditioned townhouse. Mom made sure I drank lots of water. Then I found the cool tile floor in the bathroom. I spread out in there and cooled down. Whew!

Mom and Dad left me at the cool townhouse yesterday when they drove back to the lake. Mom said the next-door neighbors at the lake had a big party in the afternoon. Mom said it was a great party. A neighbor from up the beach brought perch and trout. He was frying them up and people were eating the nuggets as fast as he could cook them. Mom said the fish was so good. Mom and Dad brought their picnic table over to the neighbor’s house and the neighbors filled it with all kinds of food. Needless to say Mom and Dad pigged out. They had a big platter of fresh fruit that was so good. Everything is coming in now from local farmers. It sounds like I missed a good party. I would like to have tried some of that fish! But I spent last night at the townhouse by myself. Mom said between it being so hot and because there was so much activity at the lake with the party and all, that I was better off at the townhouse. I was so happy to see Mom this morning when she walked in the door of the townhouse! Mom said I was pretty good by myself. She saw my toys scattered across the floor. She also noticed the toilet paper was unrolled and on the bathroom floor. But she didn’t get mad at me. She just smiled and gave me a hug. I sure will be happy to get back to my “mommy and me” routine. Mom left Dad at the lake this morning. He’ll go work at the log home all week. So Mom and I will be alone until Friday. I can’t wait to sleep on Mom’s tummy tonight. She says she hopes I don’t mind if she rolls over once in awhile. I may grumble a little because I like the comfort of her tummy while I’m stretched out. But, if she has to roll over on her side, I guess I can adjust. We’ll see…

Hi From Sparkles K.
Hi Buttons and Sassie, It would be fun to have you and Sassie come explore the lake house with me. It’s my favorite place. There are two sets of sliding glass doors (in 2 separate rooms) plus my window perch in the little guest room. There’s so much for me to see! The lake water is right out the front door. I love to watch the mom duck and her babies swim by looking for bread. My mom feeds them when she sees them so they know to stop by for their dinner. It’s so funny to watch the babies skid through the water after the bread. They’re so fast! I also like to watch the swallows swooping through the air catching the bugs that fly around right at dusk. It sounds like you had fun watching the birds too! I love it when Mom takes me outside on my harness. It’s funny how Mom is meeting so many of the neighbors because of ME! She met Victoria and Secret’s mom yesterday. Their mom knew all about me because Mom had just met their dad the other day. He must have gone home and told his wife about me. She knew my name and everything! So they had a nice chat about all of us kitties in the neighborhood. I was enjoying exploring the grass and trees so I didn’t mind that mom was talking. I didn’t even notice Secret. He slipped outside onto his balcony and was watching me. He didn’t dare jump down. He probably remembers when I cornered him one day. MOL!

Hi From Sparkles K.
Hi Buttons and Sassie,

I guess my notes can be confusing sometimes. We actually have THREE places these days! I wish you could see the log cabin. It is so beautiful. I’ll have to get Mom to take a picture of me sitting outside on the porch. Then she can post it on my blog so you can see it. Mom and Dad bought 25 acres of WOODS! in Ithaca, New York. It’s on the south end of Cayuga Lake. The woods are actually a little outside of Ithaca in the Town of Dryden. It’s about 44 miles from the lake house (cottage). The lake house is in-between the log cabin and the townhouse in Rochester. That’s why Mom and Dad meet at the lake house in the summer time. The log house is just over 100 miles from where Mom works, so it’s too far for her to commute. That’s why we still have the townhouse. It’s so confusing to have 3 places. Sometimes Dad wakes up in the middle of the night and he’s not sure where he is! Mom and Dad want to sell the townhouse when Mom retires (hopefully soon). Then we will all move to the log home as our permanent full-time live-in home! We’ll also have the little lake house to go to on hot summer days so we can swim and fish and relax. Dad took a 10-week log home construction class up in Canada a couple of years ago so that he could learn how to build his very own log home. The logs are custom scribed (not from a kit). They are HUGE!! It’s so quiet out there in the pine trees. Mom can’t wait to move there. Some day!

I'm glad you are enjoying your new laser toy. I had one of those one time but Mom had to take it away from me. I was going CRAZY trying to catch that light! I would not settle down! So she put it away and now I play with things that I can actually CATCH!

Hi From Sparkles K.
Hi Buttons and Sassie, That must be fun to see the hand gliders. They do look like colorful kites! Mom said she went up in a sailplane one time in Elmira, New York. She said another airplane pulled her sailplane up up up high into the air and then released it! She said the sailplane she was a passenger in didn’t have an engine! It was so quiet. All she could hear was the wind! There were just the two of them on the plane (Mom and the pilot). She really enjoyed that.

Our little fishing cabin/cottage is on Cayuga Lake in the Finger Lakes. It’s really pretty there. It’s close enough to where we live in Victor, New York (outside of Rochester) that we can drive there on the weekends (and sometimes even during the week after work). It’s only about one hour away.

I hope your mom gets her flowers done. My mom has been watering our tomato plants trying to keep them peppy. It’s been really dry here!

Have fun with your new laser toy! Have a great weekend.

Hi From Sparkles K.
Hi Buttons and Sassie,
I gave both of you votes! Thanks for stopping by and giving me a vote and a note.

The weather here has been absolutely beautiful. We have really been taking advantage of it too. Mom and I drove to the lake yesterday afternoon after Mom got out of work. Dad met us there. He’s been working at the log home he’s building for us. Anyway, it was so pretty at the lake. There was a bright white full moon low in the sky right at dusk. It was so bright that it was reflecting a white stream of light across the waves on the lake! Maybe the full moon put a spell on me. All I know is, I didn’t sleep a wink all night long! I was playing with my toys and running from the sliding glass doors in the living room to Mom and Dad’s room. Then I would run to my window perch in the guest room. Then I would run across Mom and Dad’s bed. It was fun! I didn’t want to leave this morning! I grumbled when Mom was putting me into my carrier. When we walked outside, we looked at the lake and it was as smooth as glass. The only ripples were from the wake of a canoe as a guy was paddling near the shore. It was so quiet! Just a few birds swooping and circling looking for their bug breakfast. I don’t think Mom wanted to leave either! When we got back to the townhouse, Mom fed me a little of my favorite Fancy Feast. I lapped it up and then immediately went to my favorite spot behind the couch to get some SLEEP! I was so tired!! Mom said it was a lot easier for her to get ready for work because I was sleeping. Usually I’m following her around as she’s doing her routine. I insist that she takes time out to play with me before she leaves for the day. So, it usually takes her a little longer to get ready when I’m in my playful mood. MOL!

Mom said the U.S. Navy Blue Angels are in town for an air show this weekend. She went for a walk during her lunch break (she works in downtown Rochester). She said the Blue Angels were practicing their maneuvers right over her head! I thought there were ANGELS flying all around her, but she explained to me that the Blue Angels she saw were really JETS! She said they fly tactical jet maneuvers and are really LOUD. She says you see them fly by and then a few seconds later you hear the loud noise! Can you believe they can fly within 18 INCHES of each other during their Diamond 360 maneuver!! Wow! She said they can fly as low as 50 feet from the ground. Her office is on the 4th floor. She was working at her computer and could see them flying right outside her window. She said it looked like they were going to fly right INTO her window! They were that close! Wow – that must be something to see! Maybe they are like those birds I saw this morning. Those birds were swooping and flying really fast and low over the water. Sometimes they would fly high and then dip down low. Of course there wasn’t a big noise like a jet engine after they flew by!

Hi Buttons and Sassie!
Oh, thank-you for the visit! Wez have been so cool here it's rediculous! It was 67 with rain yesterday, 67 today with rain and a prediction for tomorrow is 67 and possible rain. Ick! Wez had enough of this already and mom has too. She got such a late start on her flower garden that is her pride and joy because it was too cold to plant this year, now she would like to get some mulch down etc. and it just isn't possible. WeZ don't want our mom to be sad, so summer please come back! Wez so happy to hear that you are having nice weather and that you are able to enjoy it. Hopefully wez will be able to too in a few more days.

Love to Both of You,

Hi Buttons and Sassie!
Wez sooo sorry that wez haven't gotten back to you sooner. Mom and dad had a crazy weekend wez were off CC for several days. Wez sure are glad that it was Monday! It rained this morning and cleared up and then it started again an hour ago. It's suppose to get to 80 today, but we'll see. That would be the warmest day wez had in about 3 weeks, then it'll cool down again. Wez hope you both are doing well. Votes left for both of you.

Love,

Betty Boop and Cindy

Hi Buttons and Sassie!
Wez bet it's hot and dry by you. Wez are having what looks like a week long cold streak after hitting a record high less than a week ago. The forecast for the weekend is not good, but wez hoping it'll be just warm enough to squeak by so that mom can open everything up again. Wishing you a lovely evening.

Hi Buttons
Hello, we just wanted to tell you a little bit about our Trance #194418 who is running for COTD! He is a beautiful black senior kitty who was abused by kids that caused permanent injury to his back legs. He had a mild stroke last year which caused more problems with his back legs & did some possible kidney damage. Nothing gets Trancy down!! He & his wife, Jazzy, run the Paws & Claws Café & he does so love to cook!! Trance richly deserves his COTD badge & he would appreciate your vote!!! Love, Sassy & Cinnamon Sugar

Come visit me, Angel Duchess Sassy - I am finally back!!.

Hi From Sparkles K.
Hi Buttons and Sassie,
Mom showed me on the map where Draper, Utah is. It looks like you are near Salt Lake City. Mom has never been there, but Dad has. Mom says she imagines it to be dry in Utah and not in danger of flooding. But I guess if you live near a river, there’s always that worry. I hope it stops raining soon.

Mom was late getting home from work yesterday because she ran some errands on her way home. Grrrr! Mom – you need to get home as soon as possible! I was really happy to see her when she FINALLY got home. I couldn’t stop rubbing against her and following her around. I think she felt a little guilty so she took me outside on my harness and leash. So, you like to go outside on a harness and leash too? That’s pretty cool! Anyway, it was still daylight although it was getting a little late. She wouldn’t let me stay outside on the balcony/deck by myself because she was afraid I would jump down to the ground. She said that this time of the day (around dusk) is my bewitching hour and she can’t trust me. What the heck does she mean by that? She’s probably right. I get so crazy early in the morning and right at dusk. Something inside me just takes over and I can’t be responsible for my actions! I get a wild look in my eyes and I start running and playing and I get so excited! I’m sure you can understand! MOL!

Hi From Sparkles K.
Hi Buttons and Sassie,
I hope you had a nice Mother’s Day. My mom said her Mother’s Day was wonderful. She got to sleep in a little late. I was as quiet as I could be. I even curled up next to her and went back to sleep for awhile. Although that trick you pulled about playing with your mom’s hair sounds like a good idea. I may have to try that one! MOL!

The weather was gorgeous. Finally – no rain! Mom and Dad went for a motorcycle ride on back country roads yesterday afternoon. They said the trees were beautiful with all their flower blossoms. Tulips are everywhere! When they got back, Mom took me outside for a walk on my leash and harness. I had fun chasing bugs and exploring the back yard.

It’s supposed to be sunny and beautiful all week. Yippee! Hopefully the lake level will lower so Dad won’t be so worried about the cottage getting flooded. He said the water is really high right now. The wind was blowing the waves right up under our dock! Dad had to remove several boards from the dock so the water could splash up through the dock to release some pressure. Hopefully now the dock won’t get torn down if we get high winds and waves again! Both of the neighbor’s docks were under water. Our dock is a little higher than their docks are so it wasn’t under water (yet). I hope the river stays back where you are! What river is it?

Hi From Sparkles K.
Hi Buttons and Sassie,
It sounds like you have lots of animals to watch out your window. Does your tail wag like crazy when you see them? Do you make that chittering noise like I do? I just get so darn excited!

Wow – you are under a flood watch too? I hope you will be okay. Dad had plans to check on the cottage today, but Mom received a phone call yesterday afternoon from one of the neighbors by our cottage. She said the lake was really high and the winds had kicked up. The waves were crashing over the break wall and Dad’s boat was getting blown around quite a bit on the boat lift. Mom called Dad at the log home to let him know. Of course he was grumpy about it. He called Mom around 9:00 last night from the cottage. He had raised the boat in the boat lift. He didn’t talk long because it was late and he hadn’t eaten dinner yet. Mom told me this morning before she left for work to use all my cute tricks to put him in a good mood when he got home today. Well I did and I even tried some new ones. It worked! He called Mom at work and I overheard him telling her how cute I was. He was getting the biggest kick out of me chasing a fly. He had accidentally let the fly in when he was unloading his SUV. He tried to catch it but couldn’t. Then he let me in the room and I saw that fly right away! I stalked it and grabbed it. I heard him telling Mom how I was entertaining him by playing with the fly. MOL!

I don’t know what’s up with me today! I’m in such a good mood! Maybe I have spring fever because the sun has been shining. Before the fly adventure, I was going nut-so in the bed this morning. Mom’s alarm clock sounded, but she pushed the snooze button (as usual). She was lying on her side trying to go back to sleep for a few minutes. She knew I was up to something, but didn’t know what I was doing. She thought I was playing with a toy. She could feel me next to her jumping around. She finally turned over and said “Sparkles, what ARE you doing?” I looked at her for a second and then I saw it again… my tail! It moved! So I jumped at it and went around and around chasing my tail!!! Mom started laughing so hard. She said “Sparkles! You haven’t chased your tail since you were little!” Granted, I’m only a year old, so I guess I’m still sort of a kitten. I’m allowed to have fun and chase my tail, aren’t I?

Hi Buttons and Sassie!
Hey, you two were next on our list to blog to! Wez can't tell you how often that happens! Mom says it's mental telepathy, mental what? Anyways, your weather is better than ours. It only got up to 45 yesterday! Sheesh! It was 58 today and mom let us have the patio doors open for awhile even though it wasn't 60 degrees which is mom's rule. It was sooo nice to hear the birdies! Say, mom was playing the "Coolest Cat Contest" late on Sunday night and found Buttons 5 times! Mom played a long time and never found either one of us. Take care and wez left votes for both of you.

Love,

Betty Boop and Cindy

Hi From Sparkles K.
Hi Buttons and Sassie,
I bet it is very beautiful where you live in Utah. Mom says she wants to go visit Utah. That’s really cool that you live on a mountain!

I hope you don’t get the floods this summer. We had a snowy winter and are in the middle of a very wet spring too. In fact, Cayuga Lake where we have our summer cottage is under a flood watch. Dad is going to drive there this week to check on it. Hopefully the water is not over the break wall. I like the water, but I certainly don’t want to be swimming in water INSIDE the cottage!
