Test driving the box

I love when Mom gets new shoes. She and Dad went to Cincinnati over Memorial Day weekend to visit with Dad's parents and sister (she's getting married and they had showers and such to go to). So Mom had to get new shoes for the event. Which meant new shoe box for us!

Jasper testing the box
Here I am first checking out the box to see how I fit.

Perfect fit
It seems an OK fit. (Sorry, I didn't realize this one was blurry until just now.)

Jasper in the shoebox
I had to do a curly Q tail to get in just right.

Perfect fit
See ... just right!

It's been a tough week

It's been a tough week in the Blogosphere with bad news about Skeezix, and Ginger Jasper struggling ... so I figured we needed to see a video of kittens to make things better.

Maggie's new spot

Well, there's still areas of the house that aren't quite put back together since the awful flood a few months back and the repairs that took longer than expected.

Maggie enjoying a pillow pile
Maggie is benefiting from the stack of pillows on the guest bed. She likes to get way up on there and perch and sleep. Who wouldn't like to sleep on a giant stack of pillows? The guest room has become our new hangout. I sleep on a suitcase that needs to be put away (but couldn't during the repairs since it gets stored in the secret storage space we're not supposed to know about, but is off the room we were locked in during the repairs). Josie has been sleeping under the guest bed. I think Huggy Bear is the only one who hasn't migrated to this room. He still hangs out on Mom and Dad's bed.

Baby birds

Mom is not a fan of birds, but she likes these baby birds on our porch. She does get a little nervous that momma bird is going to dive bomb her is she's on the porch too long.

Four birds in the nest on the porch
Here are the four babies a few days ago, on the fourth.

Baby birds getting feathers
And here they are now, just five days later. You can really see how well their feathers are coming in. I doubt they'll be hanging out in that nest much longer.

Happy Cinco de Meow-O!

Cinco de Meowo 2013
We hope all of our cat friends and their people have a very Happy Cinco de Meow-O! We don't put hats on for just anyone -- this is special just for you! Go easy on the nip as you celebrate. Those nip hangovers are no fun, and if you're going to be catnapping, let's make it because we're cats and not because we're still loopy!

Mom time

Sometimes Mom and Dad get stressed out. Mom works for a non-profit, so you can image how it wears on her some days. I can't fix the things that stress them out, but I can do this:

Jeni and Jasper
And I think that's a pretty good thing to do.
