Aww Heck, Not Yet!


 I popped into the Foster Room yesterday hoping to pick up a set of cuties to bring home. There were several sets of mamas with tiny babies and a few teen cats in need of some socialization, but no little orphan kittens for us.

Things have been pretty busy down there so I would be really surprised if our wait was long at all.

Should they arrive today or tomorrow (the shelter is closed Sunday and Monday) I'll pop over here and share a peek.  We'll blast in on the social media too, of course.

I know you're itchin' for kittens -- I'm sorry we'll be waiting just a wee bit longer!  Hopefully, just a day or so. Stay tuned!

We're Home!


Our flight that was already a late one got delayed a bit thanks to some mechanical issues. Interstate traffic went down to one lane near  Tacoma and created a big slow-down right by our exit.  But finally,  at some point in the middle of the night, we did make it home from our travels.

Normally Wylla and Charlene are waiting at the door for us, but they were both sound asleep upstairs and didn't make their appearance until I was half way done sorting through a week's worth of mail.

When they finally came down,  both paused in the living room with a look that said "Is it you? Is it really you?" before they trotted over to greet us.

We scooped them up, gave lots of hugs, got lots of purrs, then put them down so they could inspect our luggage and shoes.

I quickly got ready for bed, then went upstairs and slipped under the covers. Bean soon joined me, then Wylla, then Craig, and the next thing I knew it was morning.  I woke up with Bean sound asleep on my back with her chin resting between my shoulders.  Wylla was at my side.  Usually, such close snuggles are reserved for colder nights.

I guess they missed us.

Now that we're back, we're ready to receive babies once again. As soon as I'm done returning some emails, making some calls, and catching up on a couple of things this morning, we'll check in with the Foster Department and see if there might be some cuties that need us!  I'll be sure to keep you posted!

A Little More Mimsey


Mimsey is such a love bug. She always welcomes any pets, scratches, or belly rubs and says "thanks" with a few squints.  She can't walk by without brushing up against you to say "hello."  She's highly huggable.

I'm not sure if she remembers her kitten days with us, or just remembers our recent visits, but it always seems that we feel familiar to Mimsey.




As always, we've enjoyed our time here, but we're ready to get home to see Wylla and Charlene. Even when I'm gone just a few days, I always miss my girls a ridiculous amount. I can't wait to get home and give them both a good squeeze!

Look! It's Nigel and Mimsey!!


I'm at the folks' house for a couple of days and have been enjoying spending a little time with Mimsey and Nigel Frost.  They're happy cats, living the good life with my mom and dad.

Mimsey really does look exactly like a grown-up version of her kitten self. She still has the same boxy head and dense bunny fur. She's a love.


Nigel is as handsome as ever. He's as floofy as ever, too.  He's the most curious of the pair and is always investing with his nose and trying to slip through doors into spaces he's not supposed to go in -- like the basement or garage.



They both enjoy time with their feather wand, rolls with catnip bananas and birdwatching from their roosts in the enclosed porch.

They're such lovely cats and they continue to bring my parents joy each day!
