Hurricane Issac

Today marks the 7th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina and the Federal Flood. We are spending the day in the dark, listening to Hurricane Issac whip wind and rain around. Big gusts of winds but thankfully no flooding by us in the Irish Channel.

Our cats Gonzo and Harold seem confused. This is Harold's first hurricane, Gonzo's second. Hana, our our 12 year old cat, is snoozing peacefully on the bed. She's been through this a number of times.

So here we hunker waiting for Issac to move on.

Harold turns 3

Harold was such a tiny thing when I brought him home. We weren't sure he'd grow into his huge ears and paws but he did. He grew fast the first year. His first vet appointment at 8 weeks he was 2lbs. 8oz. At 2-1/2 months we was just shy of 5 pounds. By 6 months he was almost 9 pounds. He was around 12 pounds at his 1 year birthday. He's now stabilized at 14 pounds. He still plays a lot and in spite of his scowl, he's really a sweet, loving, silly cat. He just has a serious face.

Happy Birthday Harold!

No photos PLEASE!

I was attempting to capture Harold lounging on the new carpet. After shooting a number of shots, he decided he had had enough.

My lifelong love of kitties, and other critters, has gone to a new level. I am now am a pet sitter and dog walker! Check out my web site, Petit Pet Care. Now I have even more critters to love and photograph. Sweet!

Simon's Cat Double Trouble

If you've ever brought a new kitten home to your cats, as I have twice in the past 6 years, this scene will look familiar. I can't seem to embed the video so follow the link. It's very funny and cute.

Fat and Happy
