Time to let me know if you want a holiday card, with this year’s featured Crooked Acres permanent resident! Go here to Postable, enter your name and address, and your card will be on the way soon. I am happy to send cards to other countries, this is NOT limited to US residents. If you have any problems, drop me an email and I’ll do my best to fix it. I’ll take names and addresses until December 20th.
If you’d like to send me a card as well (never ever required, but always appreciated – I don’t keep track of who does or doesn’t send a card, I promise!), send it to: Robyn Anderson, PO Box 461, Athens, AL 35612 USA.
(PS: If that link doesn’t work for you, or you prefer not to enter your info (I delete your name and address once I’ve downloaded it), you can email me instead.)
Yay! This leaves Raleigh and Iva at Petsmart. I would LOVE it if they went home together. Fingers crossed!
Kelsey said: Also wanted to add that perhaps you will find out before January, if she, you know, goes into heat.
And Amy said: HA! If she goes into heat I bet Robyn will snatch her up and spay her so quickly that we won’t know it until she posts after the fact!
As if they’d willed it to happen, in the early hours of Thursday morning I woke up to hear the familiar trilling song of a ladycat looking for love. And it went on and onnnnn. I dropped her off at the vet last night, and they’ll spay her today.
Did her [Willa’s] naming have anything to do with the fact that Fred calls Dustin Willis?
It certainly did – I was trying to come up with a name I liked, and Fred said something about Willis and I thought “Huh… Willis…Willa… I like it!”
Did everyone get their Christmas shopping done already? Because if not, you might want to check out the ACME Portable FURnace! It’s gotten really cold here the last couple of days, I think I need a couple of those for my feet.
I let Dennis upstairs yesterday (it was so cold none of the cats had any interest in going outside) and a while later Fred told me that he and Dustin were on the bed taking a nap together, Dennis in the cat bed, Dustin on the bed. Awwww.
As mentioned up there, I woke in the middle of the night to hear Willa singing her song. She went on for quite a while, and then got quiet. Fred told me he hadn’t heard anything, and when I went in to see her once it was a reasonable hour, she acted pretty much the same. Maybe a touch friendlier (and to be clear, she was super friendly to start with). But I KNOW the sound of a cat in heat or a cat getting ready to go into heat, and I didn’t want her going into full-blown heat, especially with the weekend coming up, thank you very much. So I called the vet’s office and dropped her off last night. They’ll spay her today, and I’ll pick her up this evening.
So, no gorgeous long-haired dilute tortie kittens for us, darn it. (But yay for Willa!)
