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...

Heat wave

So in the middle of this intense heat wave our upstairs air conditioning unit has gone out. Mom and Dad had someone come and service it several weeks ago and he replaced a part and refilled the Freon, but he didn't replace the right part. So a new compressor has been ordered but might take a week to get. Fortunately the downstairs unit is working, but is struggling to keep up, only cooling into the 80s downstairs (it's in the 90s upstairs). Mom and Dad are keeping lots of cool water for us, and more wet food than normal, to keep us cool and hydrated.

Please think cool thoughts and hopefully we'll get some rain or a lucky break from the heat.

So for Father's Day we're all hanging out in front of the fan watching tv in the living room. I hope you are staying cool and enjoying time with your cat dad today.

Happy birthday to Maggie!

Today is Maggie's 10the birthday! I can't believe that little stinker has been my sister for 10 years already. Time sure flies. We'll spend her birthday chilling around the house (like every day) and get our stinky goodness on Saturday when Mom and Dad get back from the beach where they are celebrating Mom's birthday (also today).

Rest in peace little Q2

My heart just breaks over the news of the passing of Q2. Her sister Ginger was one of our very first followers and you all are family to us now. I know she was having her struggles, and she is at peace now, but it doesn't make it any easier. Purrs to Rita and Fred, and Ginger and Mariah, and sweet Q2 at the Rainbow Bridge. We miss you already.

New box!

We got a new box! This picture is us trying to share the box, but it didn't last too long. Maggie decided to attack the flap, and I just couldn't relax with all that going on.
