Hi Sassie and Buttons!
First a note from us, Iago's earthly family. We want you all to know that Penny Lane FINALLY had her spay surgery 2 weeks ago yesterday. She did very well and has recovered without a hitch. We ALMOST have our old Penny Lane back. She has been sleeping at the foot of mom's bed now for a week and mom found her by her head one morning. Yeah! But, she still gets spooked and spazed if one of us goes past her and she didn't know we were there. She sees it as a threat, but that is getting better all the time. She is making attempts to be furriends with me, Cindy, but I don't want any part of that. After all, she is trying to be a momma's girl and as far as I am concerned, mom has only one girl, and it's ME! Thank-you to all of you who are praying for mom's dad and mom's friend's husband. It looks like he had 2 good days in a row. PTL! So, from here we will let Iago take it away!

OK, so where are we now? Let me see.... oh yes, we left off at Thursday of last week on our vacation. So for Friday and Sat. we flew to Goremen National Park in Cappadocia Turkey, (a 45 min. drive by car from Istanbul). We have to tell you all, we were in for a treat! This place is amazing! It is absolutely jaw dropping and there is no other place like it in the world! Let us describe it to you. To begin with, it has a dreamlike landscape. White volcanic ash lies on the tops of fairy chimney's and caves. This area is steeped in history. It was inhabited in the Greek Orthodox times here in the very early days of the Christian church. Those people used the landscape and caves as a hiding spot from those who were trying to persecute them. There is an underground city of caves and churches, just pawsome right Scooter? Some of the churches still have the original paintings on the walls. It is not be be missed! The rock formations are unique and you will never see anything like it. We trecked down into the valley and beauty surrounded us. There are so many native wild flowers here. I picked some for Scooter to make a boquet and to wear in her fur. We ate our picnic lunch in the valley. After, we continued to explore the underground city and all the pawsome churches there. Quite remarkable indeed! This area is like an outdoors museum. There are even tunnels to explore. And yes... I had to rub whiskers with Scooter in the tunnel. There are breathtaking views from the top of the valley. W will be staying in the Antolia Cave Hotel. All of it's rooms are caves! You can Google it to take a look. I think you will be quite impressed how lovely and tastefully decorated it is. Scooter was waiting in great anticapation for this. She was soooo excited to have reservations in a cave Hotel! We can't do this National park just in one day, so we stayed for two. Now I'll tell you about Saturday.

We signed up for a private 4 hour ATV ride thru the park. Half way thru, we stopped at this little tea shoppe in the middle of nowhere! Unbelievable! We had a lite lunch and Scooter had tea while I had T

Hi Sassie and Buttons!
Well today it has been quite overcast with the smallest and lightest snow wez ever seen that just started coming down. Looks like it will be a dusting at most. Mom has been letting Penny Lane AKA “Growlie Kitty” out for bits of time. She is not friendly to us at all! Even Maya who terrorizes Lukey runs for the hills when she sees her! MOL! Now that is saying something. Mom is still her safety person but Penny Lane has no problem growling and swatting at her for the slightest thing. She will purr for mom and do figure 8's around her legs, but don't let that fool you! She sure doesn't like to be touched too much.

The rest of us are doing good and a bit uneasy with Miss Growlie Kitty. Wez don't know why she get's Fancy Feast for dinner and wez don't! Anyways, wez are all wishing you a meowvelous Monday night!

Love,

Betty Boop, Cindy, Angel Iago Diago and Growlie Kitty!

Hi Sassie and Buttons!
Today wez will talk about Penny Lane's first full day at our house. Mom slept in REAL late as she was totally exhausted from the weekend. She got up bleary eyed and called the vet to see when she she could get Penny Lane in the earliest. Lucky for us, at 3:30 yesterday! Penny Lane put us to shame, she went into the carrier with no fuss! Mrrr... Mom had her list of things that needed to be checked: microchip, neg. Ear mites, neg. teeth, fine, lucky so far. But, Dr. Christi did find flea dirt and one dead one. Mom later found a live one at home. Combo test for FIV and Felv, NEGATIVE!!! Yippee! On exam, Dr Christi couldn't feel any babies on palpation. So, she is holding off on vaccines for 3 weeks in case she is. By then, she should show signs if she is pregnant. Dr. Christi gave Penny Lane Capstar which will kill all live fleas and she put a dose of Revolution on her too. The only thing it won't cover is tapeworm. Dr. Christi didn't want to do too much in one day to her, so mom will call for that med at the end of the week. Mom is giving us and the dog our Revolution too. They cleaned the bathroom and did all the towels etc. with hot water last night. Miss Penny Lane is getting quite affectionate! Seems like she likes her new digs!

Now, get this! Miss Penny Lane is a real 'Houdini'! Last night, mom was on here, helping us post our blog. She heard some nasty hissing and called out “knock it off” thinking it was Maya after Luke again. Then, more hissing and growling, so mom called out again. On the third time, mom got up to break up the hissy growling fest. Low and behold guess who??? It was sweet little Betty Boop growling at Penny! What the heck??? How did she get out of the bathroom??? Mom scooped her up and put her back in there. She has heard Penny jiggling the door knob! About 45 min. later, mom went down the hall and the bathroom door was open again! Mom went into her bedroom and who was sitting as pretty as could be with her paws all stretched out in front of her but Penny Lane! She didn't run or move, she just sat there looking at mom AND looking quite proud of herself indeed! A very talented cat she is! Penny has to stay separated until she can get her shots and wez are sure she is flea free, That is gonna be a challenge even greater than mom and dad thought!

“Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes... There beneath the blue suburban skies... I sit and meanwhile back... Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes... Penny Lane”!

Love,

Cindy, Betty Boop, Angel Iago Diago and Penny Lane!

Hi Sassie and Buttons!
Hi All! Well, did wez have an exciting weekend! Mom is totally exhausted after trying to stay awake and wait for the sound of a trap door closing! Well... it did twice! So, our first client was Gray Kitty on Sat. night (formally known as Sable Cat). He had a collar and tag on. Poor mom got the trap into the bathroom without any help, because dad decided to make a late night trek to the store and sure 'nuf, that's when the trap was sprung! Mom tripped over something in the living room with the large trap and cranked out her bad hip. Finally, she got the trap into the bathroom. Mom forgot to ask dad how to open the trap door. So, mom had to fiddle for 10 min. with it. to get it open. The only place to sit in the bathroom was the toilet seat. With a cat in her lap for 45 min. Mom's bum was getting sore waiting for dad, so she finally had to make a snug sack out of a light sweatshirt she had and got him into the bedroom. Mom finally got to look at his tag. First of all, mom was right, it is a 'HE'. His real name is Dusty and he does have owners. That's why mom waited almost an hour for dad to get home so he could take the collar and call the owners and make sure he still had owners or see if he was lost. When dad got home he called. Dusty only lives three blocks away, but seems to be taking all his meals at our house! Te he he! His owner said to just let him out again and that Dusty knows his way home. Of course mom had to clean his ears and cut his nails first. Service with a smile is our motto here. Dusty is a darling cat and he seemed to really like mom. She was kind of sad to see him go.

Cindy was distraught because Penny didn't show at all Sat. Her food bowl was gone and there was something strange on the deck, (the trap). She was nowhere to be found and Cindy kept pacing and looking out the window and crying. It was so sad!

Well, at 4:00 Sunday AM, mom heard our dog Snoopy make a muffled “mrruff” sound. Mom was sleeping light, as she just couldn't keep awake any longer. She stayed awake til 2:35 am and fell asleep around 3:00 am. After hearing Snoopy, mom ran outside and sure 'nuf, the trap was sprung again! Who or what is it this time? READY?... Do you really want to know...? You wanna guess first...??? OK OK, it was Penny! Once again, mom was left alone to struggle with getting that bulky trap into the house and once again into the bathroom. Whew! Mom was getting a workout, and her hip was hurting from earlier with Dusty. Penny just walked out of the trap as cool as could be! So, then mom had to clear and set up the bathroom for her until wez could make an appt. for being vet checked. Penny seems to really like her new pad that mom made her. A studio apartment under the vanity and she is all sprawled out like she owns the joint! She also has a voracious appetite! She is also a stray, NOT a feral. Yippee! More on Penny tomorrow. P.S. Who is the REAL Penny and who is the imposter??? Take a look on Betty Boop's page at the bot

Hi Sassie and Buttons!
Hi! Wez are sorry that wez were MIA for awhile. We'll try our hardest to get back to all of you. Mom needed some time away and has had another bout of severe fatigue. Wez tried to paw some SV's while wez were technically off-line. Mom tried and intended to get on-line several times but fatigue took over.

Wez have been fine. Our brother Isaiah had his dental today and boy was he happy to see mom when he was done! He ate like a little piggy when her got home which is very unusual for Isaiah! They did pull one very small tooth, it was cracked. Mom told me, Betty Boop, that I'm up next for my yearly next month! Yikes!!! The one good thing is that I get to see Dr. Brad who saved my life 2 years ago, I wuv him!

We have lots of updates that mom mom will help us write for tomorrow. Wez are wishing you a nice night.

Love,

Cindy, Betty Boop and Angel Iago Diago!

Hi Sassie and Buttons!
Oh Sassie, are you still coughing? Our Luke is doing that and I, Cindy, have been sneezing lately. Let us know what the vet says.

Here is our note for today:

Last night we got our “real” first snowfall, that is where their was enough on the ground that you HAD to shovel or plow. We had one before where dad shoveled just a bit, about 1/2”. During the early evening the winds really picked up and there was a LOT of blowing and drifting. Now the cold after the storm.

Now, wez have more info on “Penny” the deck cat outside. Wez spotted her 3 times since the last update. She is coming on the deck more regular for food. Now mom is super worried because of the severe cold. Mom cleared some snow at the end of the deck and put her food bowl out there. The thing is, she'll still have to navigate a lot of snow to get to it. Wez don't know where she is seeking shelter.

Mom went on-line two nights ago and ordered a great outside shelter from “Feralvilla”. They only make the shelter and 2 different feeding stations. The good news is they are very busy making these shelters, so that's good news for more and more stray and feral kitties. Looks like more and more people are concerned about these kitties and are tying to help them with their most basic needs. The bad news is that since they have had a run on them, they are back logged 2-3 weeks on delivery. Mom and dad looked on Google for shelters that you can make yourself. Some look fairly easy even for dad. So, wez think they will try to get supplies this weekend so that they can build as temporary one until the one from Feralvilla comes in.

Dad is looking for places to rent a cat trap, MOL, to see if wez can trap her. Wez think that mom and dad might adopt her if her vet check is OK. Mom's biggest fear is if she is FIV OR FELV+. There are few options in that case and all of us are neg. So, please hope and pray that if wez are successful trapping Penny, that she is neg. So, right now here are a lot of “ifs” but wez are doing our best to help this cute little dilute tortie who isn't even full grown. Wez left SV's for all of our fur-pals the past 3 nights since CC is having problems. The big feline family winner taking the least amount of whacks at their votey buttons was Storm Water and Storm Cloud family. The most whacks was 7 and that was for 3 or 4 kitties. Sheesh, that was a lot of whacking!

Love,

Cindy, Angel Iago Diago and Betty Boop!

Hi Sassie and Buttons!
Hey, how are you two doing? Anything new in your neck of the woods?

Here is our note from today:

Quiet day today. Mom cont. to work with our brother Lukey and has finally gotten the squirt bottle out for those who attack or stalk him. Oh... oh....! Wez guess she means business!

Wez have been seeing a pair of mallard ducks in our yard at dusk. They come for the seed that falls from the bird feeders. They are quite interesting and the male duckey really watches over the female duckey. Wez think that they are married!

No sighting of outside kitty “Penny”. The food is there for her if she saunters by.

It got to a high of 51 today! Holy cow! That is unbelievable for WI! Suppose to get up to 50 tomorrow, wez think it might break a record again. BUT... by Friday the cold front comes in and it'll be in the 20's, possibly with snow. Brrr... wez don't know what to do with cold weather anymore!

Wishing you a terrific Tuesday.

Love,

Angel Iago Diago, Cindy and Betty Boop!

Hi Sassie and Buttons!
Oh, what a delight and a most pleasant surprise to see you! Yippie! Wez missed you too and wez don't know how that happend that wez lost contact. Wow, that IS windy for trees to blow over! Wez had our first brief snowfall on Monday. First it was rain, thwn freezing rain, thn it turned to wet snow. It melted as soon as it hit the ground and then it went back to rain eventually. So, not much to speak of. But.It certainly has gotten cold here the last week or so. So, it looks like winter is definitely here! It was suppose to only be 30 today, but when mom looked about 2 hours ago, it was already 34. Mice surprise!

Oh, we're so glad that your mom had decided to microchip you! All 6 of us are microchipped. Even if youz are indoor only cats youz would be surprized what the statistics show. The pet owners who lose their pets, especially cats, say that they never leave their cats outdside. Those are thr ones that get lost because never being outside, they don't know where their home is. Only 10% of animals who are not microchipped or have tags are ever reunited by their owners. That is sad and breaks our hearts. See, it's the indoor kitties that on a rare occasion get out when a door is left opened to let a dog out at night and the owner doesn;'t see the cat slip out. This has happened to us a couple of times. Or another common one is taking the trash out at night and bringing in groceries is another. All these owners thought that it would never happen to them.

This is what happened this summer. Dad let Maxwell out with him in the yard that's fenced in because he loves it. Maxwell does not run or jump on things in the yard, so he is relatively safe to let out with protection on. He is only able to go out with direct supervision. Well, dad became distracted in the garage and forgot all about him!!! Dad and mom went shopping and were gone a couple of hours! Luckily, Maxwell was in our driveway waiting and probably scared. When mom and dad got in the house, there was a message on the phone from the company that tracks microchipping. Wez found out that a neighbor who knows that wez don't let our cats out came up to Maxwell and thoguht he might be ours and called the number on his tag. She found out he was ours and they left a message that the neighbor called. Mom and dad thanked the neighbor and the lady from the microchip company and told her that Maxwell was safe and sound. Mom almost had a heart attack when she saw Maxwell outside after being gone so long. So, it is a very good idea and gives you comfort knowing that they are chipped.

Wishing you two and your mom a great Thursday!

Love,

Cindy and Betty Boop! XOXO

The pet owners who lose their pets, especially cats, say that they never leave their cats outside. Those are the ones that get lost because never being outside, they don't know where their home is. Only 10% of animals who are not microchipped or have tags are ever reunited by their owners. That is sad and breaks our hearts. See, it's the indoor kitties that on a rare occasion get out when a door is left opened to let a dog out at night and the owner doesn;'t see the cat slip out. This has happened to us a couple of times. Or another common one is taking the trash out at night and bringing in groceries is another. All these owners thought that it would never happen to them.

This is what happened this summer; Dad let Maxwell out with him in the yard that's fenced in because he loves it. Maxwell does not run or jump on things in the yard, so he is relatively safe to let out with protection on. He is only able to go out with direct supervision. Well, dad became distracted in the garage and forgot all about him!!! Dad and mom went shopping and were gone a couple of hours! Luckily, Maxwell was in our driveway waiting and probably scared. When mom and dad got in the house, there was a message on the phone from the company that tracks microchipping. Wez found out that a neighbor who knows that wez don't let our cats out came up to Maxwell and thoguht he might be ours and called the number on his tag. She found out he was ours and they left a message that the neighbor called. Mom and dad thanked the neighbor and the lady from the microchip company and told her that Maxwell was safe and sound. Mom almost had a heart attack when she saw Maxwell outside after being gone so long. So, it is a very good idea and gives you comfort knowing that they are chipped.

Wishing you two and your mom a great Thursday!

Love,

Cindy and Betty Boop! XOXO

Hi Sassie and Buttons!
How are you two? Wez are doing pretty good. It's been two gloomy and rainy days in a row here, but it does make great catnapping weather. Not too much else going on.

Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday!

Love,

Cindy and Betty Boop!

Hi Sassie and Buttons!
Thank-you sooo much for stopping by and for your kind condolences. Mom is still tore up and weepy. She is doing better little by little. Wez all are acting strange and there is such a quietness around here. Wez all know that the dynamic is very different and that one of us is no longer here. Even Isaiah who picked on Iago is sullen and seems to miss him. He is having a hard time being comforted. Wez guess he liked Iago more than wez thought!

Here is mom and Iago's note:


Dearest CC furiends,

I passed to Rainbow Bridge on Sat. 10/29/11 at 1:05 PM with the help of a wonderful lady, Dr. Karen. She came to the house to help me. I was failing fast, as mom knew the day before that it definitely was cancer and that it had spread. Breathing was getting more difficult and I cont. to lose a lot weight. I struggled to purr for mom even though it was hard, but I just had to. I wrote a poem for mom because she has always been here for me and loved me when I wasn't so loveable. Apparently someone had been very mean to me before she adopted me as an older cat. Mom worked hard all the time to help me and make me more sociable. She helped me to lose weight and I took pride in being able to groom myself better and to even play. I know mom is heart broken and that is why I purred for her thru my entire sickness, even though I never purred before except when I saw food! I told mom that I wanted Angel Scooter to hold my paw as I crossed over as I took such a liking to her. Not only is she beautiful, but I sensed a very kind and gentle spirit in her. I know I can trust her to help me adjust in Rainbow Bridge.

Here is the poem I wrote for mom:

Gentle Lady

Gentle lady please don't cry, I know how hard it's to say good-bye.

Gentle Lady hear my plea, it's time for you to set me free.

I knew you cared through heart felt prayer, I didn't want to see your sad despair

I saw your heart make room for me when no one else wanted me.

You took me in and loved me so, and that I will forever know.

Gentle Lady, please know it's true, there is room for me and room for you, in the sky way up high that is where we'll never die.

Gentle Lady I'll wait for you, until all of your earthly days are thru. I'm at peace where I am, don't cry for me for you will see, I'm in the sky, that's where I'll be.

Gentle Lady when you look outside, there I'll be, just a mere reflection, but it's me!

And on your pillow where you lay your head, I'll bless your little sleepy head.

Gentle Lady, please don't cry, I'm in a place where I'll never die.

Love you mom!

Iago, (a very pretty kitty cat)

Dear CC fur-pals, when you look at the night sky and see the moon, think of me since I have been told it's made of cheese and that's where I will often be!

Hi Sassie and Buttons!
We're so sorry that wez haven't written lately. Mom has ben so sad ever since she learned of Iago's diagnosis She has found it hard to blog on CC for the moment. She did write an update on Iago for all of our CC fur-pals. Here it is:

To all our dear CC fur-pals,

We want to thank you all for Iago's RCOTD today! What a surprise when mom logged in today to see that Iago won the honor! Iago has a Cheshire smile on his face. Mom is so happy that he will have a CC award to take with him to Rainbow Bridge to show all the angels!

Mom is still having a hard time blogging because she tears up. When this all has come to pass, mom is hoping to get back to all of our fur-pals as before. Please be patients with us as we feel every prayer and well wish that you have been sending us! It means so much to us that wez can't even begin to tell you. You all have been our strength!



Iago Diago is holding his own for now. He is eating fairly well his canned food. However, he is still losing weight. His breathing is stable and only has a bit of difficulty if his neck is in a certain position when he falls asleep. Then he wakes up and repositions himself. He is comfortable on his favorite kitchen chair by the window with his cushions.

Sending our Love to All,

Yoggie, Cindy and Betty Boop!

Hi Sassie and Buttons!
So, may we ask, what medication did the vet order for the asthma? It's really good that your mom's knows, now she will know what to look out for. Also, in case you don't have an air purifier, mom highly suggests youz have one. Wez have a Oreck standing one. The experts say if it doesn't make a littler noise, it's not a good one. This one has a quiet white noise. Also, if youz have a furnace, change your filter every 3 months with a high grade filter. It helps a lot here since wez have such a big feline family.

Our brother Iago Diago has pneumonia and finally has seemed to turn the corner, but tonight mom saw him scratch his ear. So, mom checked it and sure enough, he has a right ear infection. Mom cleaned it and she will again tomorrow, it it isn't better, off to the vet agaion she goes. Poor Iago!

Wishing you both a good night.

Love,

Cindy and Betty Boop!

Hi Sassie and Buttons!
Awww... Sassie! wez heard youz had to go to the vet because youz were coughing! Doc said youz have asthma huh? Good thing they knew what you had. Mom gets a subscription newsletter from a vet school that is really good and she learns tons of things about cats. She read an article about cats and asthma. There has been some coughing and sneezing around here too, but wez all are doing it, so mom knows that wez are passing a virus back and forth. She is keeping a close eye on it though. Well, wez certaily are glad that they found out what the problem was and that they can give you treatment for it. Wez hope you are starting to get some relief now. Our mom's family has a lot of asthma in it but that is one thing that mom didn't get! Keep us posted.

Love,

Betty Boop and Cindy!

Hi Sassie and Buttons!
Talking about the weather, wez are under a wind advisory, Advisory our paw! These trees are swaying siderways and wez just got a hail storm that blew in almost out of the blue! Our brother Maxwell was keeping a real close eye on it from the kitty condo that overlooks our deck and yard.

Sorry to hear that you are sneezing Sassie. Wez have some sneezies here too. 4 out of the 7 of us are sneezing! Mom has Viralys gel, but it doesn't seem to be working this time. Wez don't have any other symptoms than that, though mom thougth that Iago Diago was coughing last night. She is gonna keep a close eye on us all. Good thing the vet is only a mile away.

We're all wishing you a great day!

Love,

Hi Sassie and Buttons!
Thanks for stopping in! Yes, wez had a real nice weekend with mom and dad being home for the most of it. Good luck Buttons on your shots. Wez are all up to date now. Getting 7 cats and a dog up to date is quite an endeavor! Yes my, Cindy's, ears are finally all cleared and I am a very happy kitty, However, 2 days ago, mom noticed that Betty's right eye looked squinty when she got up from her nap. Later, dad noticed that there was a little white discharge in it. So, mom cleaned it up and put some eye oint. in it. Mom said the inner mucosa was quite reddened and irritated. It's already a lot better and mom will do it again tonight for her. Have a teriffic Thursday night.

Love,

Cindy and Betty Boop!

Hi Sassie and Buttons!
Oh, wez think that memorial service sounds so cool! What a great way to honor our fallen! It was in the low 80's yesterday which is pretty warm for this time of year here. It got so humid here, that mom had to turn on the A/C. What a surprie when we woke up and it was at least 20 degrees cooler! Wez might have to close the window tomorrow it's gonna be even cooler! Yeah, my, (Cindy's) left ear is all healed up, but... mom looked at my right ear a couple of days ago and the same thing is now in that ear! It wasn't infected when the left one was. I never had an ear infection before and I'm not dealing with it too well. It's really sore. Mom is cleaning it and putting that Ototmax oint. in, but that even hurts! Mom says it looks better, but she said at least 2 more days of torture, that's what I call it anyway! Wishing all of you a very pleasant night.

Cindy and Betty Boop!

Hi Sassy and Buttons!
Wez stopping in for quick Caturday night chat. Wez had a good day today. It rained off and on and when mom got up briefly at 6:30 this AM, there was lightening that lit up the whole house! Mom thought our electricity would go out for sure, since it often does, but nope, wez were lucky this time! Looks like a hefty tropical storm in the Gulf and a big wild fire still burning out in Oregon. Always somthing it seems. Wishing you all a purrfect night!

Hi Sassie and Buttons!
How are you guys? Did youz get to go outside today? Wez had a good day. It was warm but very muggy. Mom couldn't take it anymore and told dad to put the ole A/C on. Mom's not feeling too good tonight anyway since she had a severe diabetic reaction, so her tolerance for heat right now is not up to par and neither is she, oops, did wez say that? Anyways, wez enjoying it being cooler in here now too. Lately, it's been cool at night, but not tonight! So, wez all will have a comfortable night and wez hope you two do too!

Hi Sassy and Buttons!
Thank-you so much for your note. So, was the rain welcomed? Has it been dry by you? Wez could use some here. The days are still nice and warm but it gets cool at night. Wez don't want summer to end! Neither does mom or dad! But the days and the weekends are being swallowed up! Wez glad to hear that you had a nice time outside. Betty is waaaay too scarted to go outside, and I, Cindy, like to go out with mom on the deck and sit on the wicker settee since I'm a real momma's girl. In fact, wez are getting ready to call it a night and lounge in bed. Mom will read a bit like she always does. Wez wishing you a peaceful night too.

Love,

Cindy and Betty Boop!

Yes, your picture is adorable. Wez don't know why wez didn't notice before, but youz look a LOT like our brother Maxwell! Yep, wez used our cat perches a lot again today and the kitty condo too, especially the crows nest. Brother Luke didn't come up today except to eat. Maya is still stalking him and mom is getting frustrated. But, other than that, things are good!

So sorry wez haven't blogged as much as we would like to. Mom has had to cut down a bit, but wez paw you purr votes almost every night. Wez had a beautiful day here today and wez have a nice breeze coming thru the windows now. Wez are making good use of our kitty condo by the patio door and our window perches. The weekend is suppose to be several degrees warmer. so wez don't know if wez will be able to have the windows and patio door open the way wez like it. We wish you all a lovely evening.

Thanks for stopping in! Yeah, wez had a lovely day today and wez had all the doors and windows opne. It might get up to 90 here tomnorrow, that's pretty hot for us, so mom might have to put the A/C on if wez look likw wez drooping! MOL! Wez prefer to have everything open, but if it's too hot and humid, then wez appreciate the coolness. Most times, mom can turn it off at night so wez can open everything up again, but it's been so cool this spring and summer, mom only had the A/C on once and that was only for a few hours. Wez hope all is well with you and wez anxious for tomnorrow to see what 90 is like, te he he!
