Negligent blogger

I have been a bad blogger. I had no idea that almost two weeks had gone by since my last post. Mom and Dad traveled to Cincinnati over Memorial Day weekend which threw off my routine a little bit. I try to blog at least once a week. I've been even worse about visiting, and I apologize for that. You are all so nice about still coming and commenting and I owe visits and comments as well.

This past weekend was an adventure. Mom and Dad were babysitting their friends' two 15-month-old twins so their friends could go to Savannah for their anniversary. There's a boy and a girl (Elliott and Eliza), and they are very sweet. Or so I'm told. I stay upstairs away from them. So does Maggie. Sometimes Huggy Bear will venture through the room they are in, looking for treats and fallen food. He managed some chicken lunch meat, so I guess it was worth the risk. And then there's Josie, who for some odd reason decided to hang out with these two. She would sit in the room, even getting near them. At one point, she even let Elliott "pet" her. (He needs to work on his petting technique.) She was very brave, and I'm mixed between being proud of her and being concerned about her judgement.

Josie on the DJ scratcher
Here's Josie hanging out on the DJ cat scratcher. This turned out to be the babies' favorite toy. We ignore it more than we play with it, so at least someone is enjoying it. But Josie decided to sit on it for a little bit, just to make sure they knew who it belonged to.

None of us cats here are good with kids or babies (in fact, neither is my human!) - I think Josie is very special for being so good with the twins!

Our computer is crappy so we've been missing our posting lately too.

We're not so sure we'd be as brave as Josie.

Happy Birthday to Maggie!!!!!!! We hopes she has a wonderful day full of her favorite things.

Josie was very brave.

We strive to love all animals, but that doesn't always mean we keep company with them. Josie is nicer than we are and we are very impressed. We also want to say, Happy Birthday, Maggie!
