It wasn’t an earthquake!

…..it was Ollie, the kitten now cat, hitting the child’s gate that I use for a barrier between rooms (this barrier is simply propped and not secured to a wall)….and  OMG it was the middle of the night and I awoke with a start. I no sooner sort that out when the curtains come crashing down…that tension road just couldn’t support the romping of one of the cats…which one I don’t know. It truly felt like a nightmare…but it wasn’t….it was real!

The next morning continued to be a comedy. The cats, Stan and Ollie, are doing a stand-off with each other meaning they were actually having a “meow-out”…a rarity as they are so calm and good buddies. It turns out that the other thing Ollie got involved in was a new bag of yarn that I brought home just the day before. The great news is that the yarn was untouched…but  one of the handles from the bag was missing…I noticed that first thing since the bag of yarn had been deposited at the foot of my bed. It was a few minutes later that I realized why the cats were grumbling. Ollie had the handle of the paper bag around his body. I couldn’t think fast enough to grab the camera…so this is one of those visualize moments.

Yeah…Lucy is sleeping and the boy kittens are out either napping or touring the neighborhood. Oh, Stan just sauntered into the room. Lucy has had a great exercise weekend…Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Pt Isabel. We started each day early and in the case of today we were there at sunrise. The moon was still full and going down. Of course, Lucy ran and ran and ran some more which makes for a happy restful household.

She has taken to wanting me not to be at the keyboard. She will bring a squeaky toy over, throw her front legs over my lap while she has her back paws on the floor…and the squeaking and squirming begin. Got to say this girl really loves the people connection. And now some recent photos of the “farm”.

The gang!

Another lively few days with the gang – Stan, Ollie, and Lucy! The boy kittens are quite calm…whereas I think Lucy must be entering her “terrible two’s”…for the most part a joy of a pup…but at this very moment she is a picklehead. Let’s see…where do I begin. She awoke throwing up this morning…that settled down….and much laundry later….a great run at Pt Isabel….more figure 8’s….home to a shower and flea treatment (just maintenance and that would be for Lucy not me!)….a nap…..and she has been “defurred” with that great comb. Now shouldn’t she be ready for another nap….she is quite wired this morning. Probably has nothing to do with my tempo!

Oh….it’s calm now. Lucy is guarding the deck and may be even drifting off to sleep. Yeah!
