Maggie and George

Mom had an aquarium in her office at work from a few summers ago when they did Doctor Dolittle and there was a scene with a real live goldfish. A friend who was moving had donated two goldfish and the aquarium to the theatre since she didn't think the fish would make the trip. Mom has been working from home more so the remaining goldfish, George, and Al, the algae eater, moved to our kitchen.

Maggie and George
We have enjoyed having some new "cat tv" to watch, especially at feeding time (well, Al just eats algae all day, but George is fun to watch). We keep thinking we want to taste the fish food but Dad keeps insisting it's not cat treats.

My new game

I have a new game. I usually use Mom's pillow to rest my head but recently I have started trying to sit on Mom's head. Literally sit on her head. I will sometimes hog the pillow a little, climb up beside her and sleep on her pillow, but the whole plant my butt right on her head is a new thing. Needless to say it's not Mom's favorite thing I do.

Speaking of games, tonight Mom and Dad came home and saw a huge frog by the garage door. Dad tried to get a picture but he was pretty quick. Josie likes to try to get frogs and lizards when they sneak into the garage, but Dad warned this one away for his own good. (Plus Dad didn't want to have Josie bringing a frog into the house or rushing in foaming at the mouth from licking the frog.)

We found heaven

Mom and Dad are down near Gulf Shores where Florida and Alabama come together visiting Mom's family. Today Mom and Dad went to Joe Patti's fish market in Pensacola. It was amazing! Just look at all that fish! I think we could spend days here and still not have our fill. Mom fixed crab cakes, shrimp, crawfish, and Monk fish for dinner. We're very jealous.

Dad took Mom's car to work the other day and Parker the Parking Lot Cat loved it. She climbed up and napped on the roof rack for a good long time, until a dog walked through the parking lot and she snuck off the other way without being noticed.

New box

Dad got a new pair of shoes today and the cashier asked if Dad wanted the box. It seemed like a strange question in the first place, and Dad was close to saying, "Of course, I have cats," but left it with a simple yes. Josie obviously thinks Dad made the right call.

Still no AC

Well we ended up getting a window a/c unit for the master bedroom after the repair people said it may be a month "because they were very backed up." This isn't a great picture but you can see how I am enjoying the window unit, laying on my favorite scratcher with the air blowing on my belly. Fortunately things have been cooler lately (in the 90s instead of the 100s) and the repair ::should:: happen on Monday.

Rest in Peace, Gandalf

This is just too much in a short span of time -- losing another dear friend. I just learned that Gandalf from the Daily G's (Gandalf, Grayson, and Whitey) crossed the Rainbow Bridge yesterday. This, just on the heels of Q2, is just too much. I don't get to visit the blogs like I used to, but these were some of the cats I would visit regularly back when I was more active. I guess this is the side-effect of being around for a while, but that really doesn't make it any easier. So I'm just putting this out there -- two friends in a month is enough! Everyone else must stay healthy. No exceptions.

Rest in Peace, Gandalf. You will be missed...
