Rocky's "adventure"

Our Aunt Tiff had a little scare last night. She had workers in the house and she thought she had wrangled all the cats (she has four now). Rocky likes to hide in the kitchen cabinet and can get behind the dishwasher, and Aunt Tiff figured that was where he was. Well one of the workers left a window cracked, and when Aunt Tiff couldn't find Rocky she figured he wasn't where she thought he was and that he had slipped out of the window.

Mom and Dad went over around 11:30 pm and hunted around the house inside and out trying to find that boy. He is rather skittish, very fast, and an excellent hider. Mom thought she saw him in a neighbor's fenced-in backyard, and they looked as close as they were comfortable at midnight (after all, they didn't want to get shot).

Eventually they all decided to call it a night, left an outside utility closet door open with some food in it so Rocky could get shelter and safety and Aunt Tiff was going to hit the streets today. Dad was thinking that Rocky may still be in the house because the window Rocky would have made it out of was about seven or eight feet up and the pine straw under the window wasn't disturbed (Dad's no Aragorn, but he figured an inside cat would have kicked up some dirt jumping and running off).

Well, at 4 am Aunt Tiff was awoken by Rocky meowing from inside the closed up guest room. Somehow he had slipped in there and found a place to hide. Now this room is pretty empty, so Rocky must be a Very Good Hider to have stayed away from Aunt Tiff and Dad when they searched the room. He was probably very unhappy with strangers in the house and decided he needed some alone time, and a little excited to be in a new room.

Thankfully he is all safe and with him Mom, sisters, and brother.

Happy belated birthday to Josie and Huggy Bear

Josie and Huggy Bear turned 10 on September 15 and it was such a crazy busy week at our house that I somehow missed posting about it. It's not a lack of love for my siblings but more of Mom and Dad leaving the computer off so I couldn't post. They will get a proper post later but I wanted to get this up. I just can't believe it has been 10 years since they showed up outside our apartment and stole Mom and Dad's heart.

Meow Like a Pirate!

This picture is an oldie but a fun one...

Maggie pirate patch
Here's Maggie ready for Meow Like a Pirate Day from 2008. She is the pirate cat in the family. Since she has just the one eye people are always suggesting that Mom and Dad get her an eye patch. I'm not sure how well that would go over.

So to celebrate Meow Like a Pirate I suggest waiting until really late at night to do the meowing. I think that's what a real pirate cat would do.

One of those days

Mom and Dad are both having one of those days where they probably should just go back home and not be around people and just pet cats all day. We're all OK with that, except that they both have "very important things to do" today.

Maggie on stool
So I'm posting this picture of Maggie sitting on a stool in the middle of the kitchen to help remind Mom and Dad that we are here, looking cute, and ready to de-stress them whenever they get a chance to escape the real world and come back home.

Doody Calls

Dad was behind this truck today. If you can't see it real well, it says Got Poop? We Scoop! It's a business named Doody Calls, mobile pet waste removal starting at $15 a week. I know scooping poop for four cats quite literally stinks, but I'm not sure they will be coming to our house. We don't make THAT much poop. I'd be a little embarrassed if we needed a service like this.

New favorite zoo exhibit

Mom and Dad went to the zoo this weekend. Mom doesn't like birds but Dad loves the exhibit where you can feed the birds. Looks pretty tasty, I mean fun, to me.

Veggies to eat

Maggie likes to chew on celery when Mom is cooking but Mom was worried that celery might be bad for us so we did a little searching. Dad found this interesting article, that says celery is ok: http://catsnco.wordpress.com/2012/05/09/which-vegetables-to-feed-and-not-to-feed/

We aren't going vegetarian, but I'm glad to know I can chew on some celery leaves.
