I posted about this on the Love & Hisses Facebook page on Friday, but wanted to mention it here, too: please keep True Blood Bill in your thoughts. He had to have emergency surgery for a blockage; they performed a cystotomy and Perineal Urethrostomy (PU). Bill came through surgery okay, and spent the weekend at the emergency clinic, where they could monitor him. There are updates and pictures at George and Red’s Instagram page (and if you go back a few pictures, there’s the sweetest picture of Red and Bill snuggling).
So, good thoughts and prayers and purrs are very much appreciated!
On Saturday, this finally happened:
(And I say “finally”, but it had really only been a week and a half since she got to Petsmart!)
Also on Saturday, Twig – who was the foster sister to the BeeBees, and a dead ringer for Catelyn – was adopted. This left Combo alone, but reports are that he was doing fine. There’s been some interest in Combo, so hopefully he’ll go home soon.
Speaking of Catelyn, there was also an update on that sweet girl, on the Challenger’s House Facebook page. She’s been renamed Remington, and she is clearly very much loved!
AND there was an update on Pink, who is now Tribble (they love her, of course. How could they not?).
Last, but certainly not least, True Blood Terry was on Cute Overload on Saturday!
Susan passed that tank along to me – it’s from the SUCK UK series of cat playhouses. I can say that it’s very well made and sturdy, but it’s pretty small, so I don’t imagine a fully grown cat could even get in there (I honestly am not sure how Stefani and Shelton managed to get into it at the same time). There’s only one opening – in the top – and I’m thinking about making an entrance in the back of the tank to make it easier for them to get into it. They didn’t show much interest in it past the first half hour or so, but if they could sit in it and slap at other kittens as they run by, they might like it more.
This is probably picky on my part, but I think it’s silly that a playhouse made for cats has a picture of a human woman in a bikini on the side.
And sleepy monkeys with Stefan in the background. I think they were sound asleep when he went upstairs and climbed into that bed, and when they realized he was there, they were a tiny bit freaked out. Silly kittens.
Video! It’s worth watching just for the part at the beginning where King Nubbs POPS straight up into the air. That boy cracks me up.

2007: Moonman is such a sweet, friendly guy and he’s worming his way into Fred’s heart. (No, we’re not adopting him! But Fred’s going to be sad to see him go.) (FYI, you now know Moonman as Joe Bob.)
