Update on Us


Hi! I’m enjoying a snippet of sunshine. I’ve been in my new home just a little over a week, and I’m a happy camper. Pierrot’s been here just a little under a week. The lady was so worried about our reunion because we had been away from each other for over a month (Pierrot was flown out first and stayed with the lady’s parents). Our reunion was noneventful much to the lady’s relief and astonishment. We received several comments in our last post asking why I had to be boarded and not Pierrot. Well, I have a back problem that causes me to have bathroom problems. I also have a lot of fears. The lady’s parents aren’t cat people and she just couldn’t risk any accidents at their house and she also was concerned for my wellbeing and anxiety. Because of this, Pierrot came to California first. For her parents not being cat people, they really surprised her by falling in love with Pierrot. He could do no wrong in their eyes. She was so worried that he would climb their furniture, get into all their many knick-knacks, jump on the fridge, and meow in the night. They expressed their delight in him and dismissed all her concerns. The marveled how he jumped up on furniture and never knocked over any of the figurines. They laughed when they saw white hairs on their black stove. When the lady told Pierrot to get out of the cupboard, her dad said, “Oh, let him stay. He likes it in there.” They loved to talk about what he did that day and what he ate. They talked about how much they would miss him. The lady felt guilty when it was time to pick him up last weekend. I was willing to make a sacrifice and let Pierrot stay there, but nobody listened to me.

We're Home

Hello! We have finally completed our move. It's been long and a bit rough at times, but we are happy to be together again in our new apartment. Here I am being boarded at the cat-only vet. I had to be there for two weeks.
Sorry about the litter box, but at least it's clean
I think I like shag rug

Pierrot was very comfortable while staying at the lady's parents' house.

At dinnertime, he liked to lie on the floor next to their table.

Here I am enjoying our new home. All's well that ends well.

California, Here We Come, Right Back Where We Started From


Hi! Do you wonder why I'm wearing a harness?  Well, there is a lot going on at our place. After a year of much thinking and praying, the lady and big guy have decided that we need to move back to California to be near family, specifically their aging parents. Our house has been up for sale and we accepted an offer on Friday.

We had 30 showings of our house. The lady had bought us harnesses thinking that when people come over to look at our house, the two of us would go with them in the car and wait.  Well, that was very stressful to all concerned. We stayed in the house when people came over and the lady and big guy waited in the car (like stalkers). This worked out much better.

As a side note, I find the harness very comforting. I don't want to go anywhere, but I enjoy wearing it at home. Pierrot does not like it at all.

We now have just a little over a month to find a place to live, pack, hire movers, and many other things. We'll need to take a break from blogging until we're settled in California. We think we'll be moving around mid to late May.

We'll miss you but may still be able to visit a bit from time to time. Otherwise, we hope to be back at the end of May.

Laundry Time Turns into Easy Sunday

Lady, I think it's time to do some laundry!

Actually, you can wait. I'll spend my Easy Sunday right here.*


*This is Annie's lady and I want to share something. Yesterday, I had the laundry basket out and Annie climbed into it for the first time. I needed to put it back under the bed because some people were coming over. When I lifted Annie out so I could do that, she gave the most mournful meow that I've never heard before. As soon as I was able, I pulled the basket back out and put her in. She stayed there for four hours.

Life is Good



Do you love chin scratches? How about chin scratches in the sunshine? That's icing on the cake.

Happy Easter



I've heard talk that there will be ham today for Easter. I'm keeping a vigilant watch.

We wish you a happy Easter or happy Passover!

Lazy Ladies



This is what happens with the lady has a day off. Although she was busy the first part of the day, she spent the afternoon in the recliner with a stack of books and me. You can see her slipper. You can't see the bag of snacks. Why don't you see my bag of snacks you wonder? Because there aren't any. She only saw fit to get snacks for herself. That's okay. I was just feeling happily snug with lots of purrs. It was a very nice afternoon.

Annie and Pierrot

I'm staking out the only sun puddle in the house. It's like prime real estate!
I need plenty of sunshine to bake a ginger loaf

Look at this defiant expression of Pierrot's when he stole the lady's chair after she got up.
Move along, lady. This is my chair now!

Shocking!

A picture is worth a thousand words.

Easy Sunday

We love Sundays. The lady and big guy go to church, sometimes go out to lunch, and relax in the afternoon. We relax too, of course. Sunday is a day of being together and being happy

Vintage Friday


Hi! I decided to go vintage today. Crossed paws and bold whiskers have always been in fashion for kitties, and I also threw in big wide eyes for a change. The lady is pleased with this old-fashioned orange gal.

The Daylight Savings Blues

Greetings! The lady is a bit cranky. She does not like the week when the clocks change for Daylight Savings Time. Plus, as a double whammy, she had to get up earlier than normal today. We don't care. We'll be napping.  Too bad you're not a cat, lady!

Showing off my whiskers


Yo! I look good next to purple.

Hello! I'm popping in with a sunny hello. How're you doing? What kind of fun plans do you have for today? We love Sundays!

Supervisor Annie




This past week, I supervised the lady while she worked. I admit to falling asleep a few times on the job, but at least she didn’t! Friday afternoon she had to take a mandatory online class on company privacy. Since her company knows most find it dry and boring, they tried to make it fun by using pictures of dogs to illustrate the lessons. The dogs all committed violations to demonstrate what not to do.  At the end of the class, there was a link to “meet the cast.” The lady clicked and read the bios of all the dogs and then noticed a kitty. She knew there wasn’t a kitty in the course because she definitely would have remembered, and after reading the kitty's bio, it makes sense why:

Valentine Extras


The lady loves this picture because my eyes are closed with happiness and she thinks I'm smiling. In fact, she's thinking of using it as our next blog banner photo.

The big guy was having fun with me. He put my bandana on my head like a hat. Believe it or not, I loved it and purred up a storm!



Superior Pierrot looks down on us all.

Bakin' my Bacon



This was yesterday and the sunshine felt so good on my tummy. Today, it's supposed to be rainy. Plus, Sal, the appliance guy, will be here fixing our stove, which means I'll be on guard duty and won't be able to lounge. Sigh. A kitty's job is never done!

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day!


Do you and your kitty or your special furry or human have any plans? I wonder if there will be some heart-shaped treats to celebrate the day at our house. Actually, square, round, or oblong will work too. I know there will be lots of love, and I hope the same for you!

Cat Camels

It's been gloomy and rainy the last few days, but earlier last week we had some sunshine. Luckily, Pierrot and I had the good fortune to soak it up. We're like cat camels. We store our sunshine for a rainy day.
