Since Ivy was gone yesterday (she came through her surgery great, and was resting well mid-afternoon when the vet called, and I will be picking her up after 8 this morning), here are some random permanent resident pics.


I went into the tornado shelter to check something (I don’t remember what), and Archie had to come creeping along to see what I was doing.


Alice and Newt, napping on Fred’s bed.


And a little while later (okay, it probably wasn’t even the same day), Alice and Jake hanging out on the same bed.


Jake outside, next to the pot of flowers (must have been late summer; those flowers are deader than dead now.)


Newt loves to hang out in the closet in Fred’s office, so Fred put a bed on the floor. Newt appreciated that. (Jake likes to hang out in there too, but slinks away if I open the door because he’s got a guilty conscience.)


I took this picture through the kitchen window – Khal was balancing on that crossbar, and I think Fred should mount a walkway or shelf there, don’t you?

This morning, Ivy (on the cat tree) was all “What’s up with the carrier, lady?” When it came time to leave, I picked her up and popped her in the carrier with no drama at all. She’s such a good girl.⁠ I dropped her off for her spay surgery this morning as soon as the vet opened. She’ll spend the night there and will be back here tomorrow morning to recover for a few days before she goes home.⁠ Interestingly, despite waking me pretty much every hour on the hour all night long last night, Ivy had not a single thing to say on the drive to the vet!


(Permanent resident) Newt is still enjoying that Christmas box.


Update: Ivy came through her spay surgery just fine and is resting well, and I can pick her up after 8 tomorrow morning! (So so glad she’s done with her surgery. I’ve never had a foster have any issues with their spay/neuter surgeries, but of course I worry!)


(Permanent resident) Charlie catches up on his napping.


Good night innernets. (Permanent resident Archie)

  1. I vote YES for the shelf on your porch. When cats show an interest in getting up higher, it’s great to be able to accommodate them. And Fred is a whiz at carpentry, right? 😉

  2. How are all your permies doing health-wise? When we moved up here in 2014, we had 17 cats. Our 18th collapsed and died on the day we moved (I can’t even…). We’ve lost them over the years to age and disease but last year we lost 5 and I don’t think I’ve even begun to process it. We now are down to 3 and one of them has just been diagnosed with something scary.

    How do you deal with the losses and are there any concerns for your current crew? I hold my breath when you open a post with a picture of one and the relief that they’re fine is palpable. It’s hard, isn’t it, loving these fluffy ones.

  3. I especially love that first picture of Sir Archie seeing what you were up to/snoopervising. The sky, the tree, that inquisitive cat face — it’s all good.

  4. Yes to the shelf, but what about a shelving unit or two low wood towers set far apart and connected at the top with a long shelf? Then you could move it around as the fancy strikes.

  5. Jake is looking a little rough in the summer pic. He was giving me “Pet Sematary” vibes. LOLS
