Dinger left us a little over two weeks ago. We jokingly called him our prodigal son because he would come inside, eat, want some attention, nap and then get up and then go back outside for a few hours. But he always came back to recharge. I wasn't thrilled with him being an indoor/outdoor kitty, but it was what he was used to and I didn't feel it was fair to take that away. Mittens was a foster that was only supposed to be for a few days while her human mama was moving. She told me that Mittens was pregnant and due soon, but I don't think she realized how soon as Mittens had her babies the first night here. My Harley is one of Mittens' kittens from a previous litter. I was a little concerned at first that she might reject the kittens being in a new strange environment and with my cats around, but we kept her separated in my daughters room and she turned out to be a phenominal mama kitty and adjusted really well. But now it's time to return to her human mama whose all settled in their new home.

There's a Facebook App called PhotoMania that makes pics into drawings, and other cool effects. There's also Instragram that does similar stuff, although I don't have that one. I don't have a cell phone for instragram photos.
Thanks, Deb. I miss Annie so very much and just wish she'd had a chance to know Sadie - but hey, I get to have them both in my heart along with Jerry and Lolly and Ric and Jenn (my older daughter) and so very many other folks, including the incredible cheez folks (like you!) from here. Jerry's hanging in there. He'll go, I know that, but not until he's ready - he's made that very clear:). Hugs, dear Deb. Your messages mean a lot to me.
I took Orinch to the Door County Humane Society. He will be vetted, neutered, and have the chance for a forever home. DCHS is low kill ~ an honest statement that they kill only for medical imperative. I know that is true since I volunteered there for a year and half. Thak you for your caring, too.
Hugs on back to you. I'm glad you enjoyed the tribute. She just seemed to fit into that background. We used to dance with Merlin too. You could hold him like a baby and he'd just relax like a big rag doll.
The whole coastline south of Carmel for a long, long way is very rocky and craggy like that. That section is called BigSur and it is striking. Highway One hugs the coast all the way down to L.A. from there and is really a beautiful drive. I'm with you on the political stuff that is all over the DB right now. I can't take it. It's not even funny. I have low tolerance for the extremes of either side of the political aisle and don't indulge on the site at all. Like you, I want to enjoy the sweet and funny animal LOLs. I love using Netflix to watch TV shows. I can binge and never have to worry about commercials. I don't do streaming. I still do DVDs but between those and all the stuff I record I could spend the entire day on my backside watching TV. Fortunately I don't...well not ALL day. It would sure be nice if somebody could make a run out your way to deliver that Rocker. When my grandmother passed I got a big round oak table from her. It was more of a coffee table because it had a very low pedestal. It means a great deal because I can remember being a toddler and standing next to it resting my elbows on the table. When I got it home from my grandmother's place, I refinished it and built a full sized pedestal for it. It looks great but sadly it sits in the garage because I really don't have a good place for it. Did you and Millie get out for an adventure today?

I added Criminal Minds to my Netflix cue. I've got a bunch of stuff in there so it will be a while but I'll get there. Arguing over ownership of the ball is a fetch fail! I like to think I run a benevolent dictatorship. I want to see Becky do all the things she enjoys but there are some rules we need to play by in order to give her that freedom. When I say drop it...ya better drop it. We've made large progress towards that and her world has gotten much bigger as a result. That's quite a collection of critters you have hanging out there. I love the videos one sees of typical enemies that throw out the rules and just get along. It would be so much nicer to see all of them playing together and everyone getting to go home with the same body parts they start out with. Of course, there's that whole food chain, instincts and keeping the world running that gets in the way of that. I hope the video helped you relax before bed.
!) I agree not to apologize to you unless I've been really bad; 2) Never heard any such gossip about you being a babbler, but should I hear such a thing I will tell whomever says it, that you were coached by me using my special babbling technique; 3) I TOTALLY agree that cats are magnificent; and 4) you are pretty damn magnificent yourself.
Nearly perfect...and very good this afternoon. We were out for a game of fetch in the back yard and she calmly retrieved my throws and was rather forthcoming when it came to releasing the ball when she got back. We often argue a bit about whose ball it is so giving it up readily was a real treat. Chipmunks and birds would provide a wonderful afternoon of entertainment for Miss Millie. I hope you get to enjoy that reading. I find it makes for a very pleasant distraction while Becky gets to play. the video uploaded so you can take an eight minute vacation to the left coast. http://cheezburger.com/42450177 go full screen NCIS is still on, thankfully. I love that show. Gibbs is such a great character. Did you enjoy Criminal Minds? That's not one I've watched...am I missing out?
