The topic: Captain


He’s very slowly acclimating. He has a new spot, not under the loveseat, but at the bottom of the cat tree forest in the garage, next to the litterboxes.  From there, he can watch and meet the other cats.  Hopefully, once he gets used to them and realizes they aren’t a threat to his happiness and wellbeing, he’ll come out of his shell.

His fur is very soft, but not very abundant, which surprises me. 

He’s only been here three weeks and he was used to being the king of his little community, from what I understand, and this place is so different.  I really hope he comes around sooner rather than later.  I’d love to get some pictures of him, but his little cubbyhole is dark and it’s hard to focus a camera in a dark area.

The topic: The pool


It’s been really hot here.  But last week I got very tired of the air conditioning being on and the house being closed up.  I decided to tough it out and just live with fans and open windows, closing blinds as the sun made its way higher in the sky.

And although I haven’t spent much time poolside, I will go down for a quick dip if I get too hot.  Brian’s been doing the same.

So, yesterday, he did the yard work, mowing the lawns, etc. Then he did some stuff down by the pool.  When he was finished, he came into the house and went online.

A few hours later he went back outside.  When he came back in, he told me he forgot about having the hose in the pool (the streambeds are leaking again) and the pool was actually overflowing.

I’m glad it was him.

The topic: Kittens!


The kittens are absolutely the cutest things in my life right now (sorry, Brian).

They started sleeping with us a couple of nights ago (a few Sundays ago Ron Howard was on the bed in the morning and had to pee; guess where he went? they didn’t spend much time on the bed after that) and it’s just so adorable being woken up after four in the morning when they decide it’s time to play.  *lol*

They’re all over the bed and the bodies under the thin sheets. Brian’s feet get really hot so his feet will be out in the open, along with part of his lower legs.  Little tiny kitten claws feel so good so early in the morning.  Then they get to wrasslin’.  And so far, they’re right up against my back when they do this type of kitten play.  Oh, and don’t forget the tiny kitten squealing.  There’s lots of tiny kitten squealing during the tiny kitten wrasslin’.  And tiny kittens can squeal really loud. 


They’re growing, they’re sweet, they’re all over the place.  I started letting them outside last week and they don’t venture further than in front of the rosebushes.  Grass is something new and odd to them.

This morning their mom was even outside playing a little with them. She gets spayed on the 17th, it was the first opening they had. Brian thinks she’s going into heat. She might be, she cries a lot.  But she’s not crying so much so I hope Jackie didn’t get to her.  *sigh*

I’m glad they live here.
