Back Home with Bean!

DSC_0647

Hi, Everyone! Just wanted to write a quick post to let you know I just got back home from my travels. I was in Venezuela, had an amazing trip, but am happy to be back.

I've already stopped by the Humane Society to see if there were kittens, but nope, there weren't any. As soon as some arrive,, we'll be getting a call.

For now, it's just us and Bean.

As mentioned before,, I've got alumni updates from the rest of the Anderson-Ericksons. I'll post those as soon as I finish unpacking and play a few rounds of sparkle ball with Charlene.

As you can see, she's a little bored.

  1. Yay - I was having IBKC withdrawls without the blog!

    Love this picture of the Bean. She must have been very happy to have you home.

  3. Nice pic Bean - our girl has no modesty either (though at least your floof covers everything up).

  4. Yay! We missed you! Caught up on a lot of the IBKs that you had before I found your blog, though. Hope Venezuela was wonderful.

  5. PS does anyone else have to hit "Post Comment" three time before the comment posts, or is it just me?

  16. Welcome home and Hi Bean, we missed you!! Glad there aren't any kittens, for the right reasons and sad there aren't for the wrong ones.

  17. WooHOO!! Welcome back and glad you had an amazing trip to Venezuela!!! That is a seriously spectacular pose by Miss Charlene...

    Teughcats -- yes, I generally have to do the old "three times the charm" routine too!

  18. I dealt with your absence in five distinct phases, Laurie...

    1. Laurie won’t be gone very long. In fact, she may not leave at all.
    2. Damnit! Why did you leave?
    3. What has to be done to get Laurie back and blogging? Let me know and I’ll do it. Honest!
    4. What’s the point? I may NEVER see another Butterbean post and no one cares.
    5. Well, I hope she has a fun trip.

    Glad you're back!

  19. Yay!! I missed this blog soooo much while you were gone. I kept checking every once in a while just to make sure there was nothing new. >.> it was a little sad. But I am glad you had a good trip!!

    And Teughcats, I also have to click it 3 times to post sometimes... odd. :) at least we can get it to post eventually!

    I know you've said that Bean is not a Ragdoll, but that pose is a typical ragdoll pose....Mine does it all the time!

  25. Great that you had such a super trip! Must admit I was right there feeling like Charlene, tapping my toes and wondering how long till you got back!

  29. YAY! I have missed my IBCK, and love that picture of the beautiful Bean!

    BTW I'm the Erin who lost the first cat I fostered a month or so ago. I now have two adult boys I'm fostering who are doing well. Although my little orange kitty isn't as welcoming a host as Miss Bean. :)

  36. Welcome back! I'm sure that Ms. Butterbean has been demanding all your attention and then some.

    Teughcats, you have to click post three times if you aren't signed in when you first try to comment. If you sign in before posting a comment, you don't have to do it all three times.
