New napping spots

For cats, variety is the spice of life when it come to napping. We've all noticed how our cats cycle through favorite napping spots.

Hana now gets into G's spot on the bed when he gets up in the morning.

And Gonzo has taken to sleeping on top of his monitor.

Cat Update

I was looking over my old posts and came across one that had a photo of the three stray cats we feed. Unfortunately, we only have one now. Ballsie McBalls took off when we were having a new roof put on the house, and never returned. Mr. Whiney has been looking rough that last month and we haven’t seen him in over 2 weeks. That leaves Twin, Hana’s nemesis and, well, twin.



Evacuation with a cat who HATES getting into her carrier is a nightmare. No cat likes getting into a carrier, but I have never seen one put up a fight like Hana. I have a scar on my wrist from one time. Greg managed to get her in by himself to evacuate for Gustav, but it took both of us to get her back in to come home. She managed to draw blood from both of us. Nothing super major but painful still. If any one has some suggestions… or a cat lasso or tranquilizer gun, I’m all ears. One thing we discovered, if we managed to scoot her in backwards, butt first, she puts up less of a fuss.

Gonzo "helping" pay bills

The printer Gonzo is sleeping on has stopped working (it's under the bills and towel). But she loves to sleep on it so and it keeps her off our key boards so it stays.
