All four of us in bed with Mom and Dad to watch Orphan Black. This never happens.

Ellie, Allie and Raz's dad Bill passed away this week. I've had cat friends pass, and I expect that, even though I'm not happy about it. It's part of life. But when our people leave us it really hits home. Please snuggle up and purr with your people today, and keep Sharon in your thoughts.

Maggie and I are in the proverbial dog house after playing hide and seek this week.
It started with me on Tuesday. We had a plumber fixing the commode in the hallway and I didn't care for his shop vac so I went somewhere I've never been before -- under Mom and Dad's bed. Mom looked all over the house calling for me and shaking treats but I didn't (couldn't) come out from under the bed. Mom didn't even think I could get under the bed. Huggy Bear is the only one who ever goes under there, and he had to low crawl to do it. Dad actually came home from work in the middle of the day to help look. Mom had to flip up the mattress so I could get out because I eventually to panic.
Then on Friday another service guy came by, this time to fix a fuse on our AC. Mom and Dad were packing to go out of town and Maggie disappeared. Mom and Dad turned the house upside down trying to find her. She's always the first one to come out when the treats are offered but there was no sign of her with treats or wet food. Mom and Dad were even looking in places they knew she couldn't be (like the freezer and the car) but no sign of her. After two-and-a-half hours of looking Maggie showed up upstairs on a new scratcher that Mom had covered with catnip. We have no idea where she was, but thankfully she's OK. Her hiding delayed Mom and Dad's trip by a few hours, but Dad suggested maybe there was a reason they weren't supposed to be on the road until later.
We never hide, so it is nuts that two of us would "disappear" in one week. Mom and Dad really hope this is out of our systems because they can't take much more. Mom almost had a panic attack, and that's just not cool.

It's pretty much unheard of to have open window time in Columbia, SC in August so you know I'm going to take advantage of it while I can. It actually feels like a fall evening tonight. Football is in the air! This time next week I'll be pulling for The Big Orange Volunteers of Tennessee against Georgia Tech. Summer went so fast, but this is my time off year.

Maggie is so sweet. She snuggled right up against Dad while sitting in bed watching a little TV. She's feeling so much better with no puking and holding at a steady weight, and is behaving like again.
On the other hand I gave Mom quite a scare last weekend. I got ahold of some ribbon and almost choked. Mom spend a good 15 minutes clearing it from my mouth. They were getting ready for a party and I'm sneaky. Fortunately Mom realized what was going on just before getting into the shower or who knows what might have happened. But I'm OK, so don't stress over me.
I have taken a brief vacation and have started sleeping in the other sink. Sometimes you need a change of scenery...

Poor little Maggie has been having some tummy issues again, throwing up and diarrhea. Mom took her back to the vet today. They put her back on antibiotics and want to do an ultrasound (they didn't have the equipment so they had to refer us to another office). They want to rule out a blockage or The C Word. The vet kept calling her old, which I take offense at because she's three years younger than I am. Please keep her in your thoughts and purrs.
