Last night this finally happened:
This leaves King Nubbs and Shelton – and now Koko – waiting at Petsmart for their people to show up.
Koko reacted more calmly to being at Petsmart than I expected. She spent a while curled up in her bed, watching the people, did a little hiding in the litter box, and then came back out just as I was leaving. She didn’t get adopted last night, but I’m hoping this is the weekend she AND Shelton and Nubbs go home. Fingers crossed!
By the way, I saw this…super pricey, but I know that Fred is mega handy!!
Oooh, I love that!
why do you have to redesign the site?
I’m currently using the theme Weaver II. The designers have created a newer theme – Weaver Extreme – and are planning end-of-life for Weaver II. They’ll still make sure it’s compatible with newer versions of WordPress for some time to come, but at some point I imagine they’ll stop doing that, and rather than being taken by surprise, I’m trying to be ahead of the curve, and am planning a switch to Weaver Extreme. And by “planning”, I mean “I’ve been thinking that I need to get this done since last Fall some time,” so we’ll see. I suspect it’ll just take a weekend of tinkering with the site to get it to look the way I want.
And also, that sidebar is so cluttered that it’s driving me nuts, so I want to rearrange it. I may go to a two-sidebar system to make it easier… or I may not. I’ll see once I actually get going on it.
Just in case anyone missed it, there was an update on Bill:
Hey all! Today marks the 5th week since his surgery…. we did have our checkup on Wednesday this week and they say it’s looking like it’s healing well! He is still peeing good – I actually saw him pee right before we put him in the carrier to go to the vet. YAY! He’s still healing though and is quiet a lot of the time but has moments of playing that we haven’t seen in a while so we think that he is feeling better than he has! Our big fun is that we really need to get more liquids in him so we are trying to get him into wet foods – he is NOT a fan of canned cat food. Right now we are getting him going with the meat baby foods. He’s liking turkey a good bit. We’ve finished off 2 jars in the last week.
Ann, Bill, Red & Georgie
Koko said she’ll take any of that baby food Bill doesn’t want!
Quick question for the commenters – my six month old kittens love Da Bird. But we go through the string faster than the feathers. Anyone know of a better toy or a better string to replace it with?
I was waiting for 6am and your post because they always make me smile! And today I need a smile because I’m still kinda freaked out! All good though, just my cat Glitter saved our lives and our neighbors lives. Like she does.
(Wrote about our big scary night if anyone’s interested)
I went and read it again – that is so scary, I’m glad Glitter was on the case and that y’all are okay!
I will be sorry to see KoKo go but have very much enjoyed her ‘journey’. I have only been around one calico in my life. But having seen how your calicos act, I wonder if a strong personality and possessiveness are common traits for them? I will miss KoKo and her gorgeous self.
Calicos and torties do tend to have what they call “tortie-tude” – and this article says it’s not all in our heads! I do have to say that in my experience torties and calicos can be hissy toward other cats, but are total people-lovers. That’s not always true, of course.
I can’t be the only one singing “whiskers in the sun” to the tune of The Violent Femmes’ “Blister in the Sun,” right?
I’ve been singing a different song. We had joy, we had fun, we had whiskers in the sun.
(What a DEPRESSING song. I still love it. I love cheesy sad songs. Wildfire, anyone?)
Ooh, ooh! WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CHEESY SONG (sad or otherwise)?? Tell me, I want to know! (Obviously cheese is in the mind of the beholder, so no one’s allowed to get offended. I WON’T ALLOW IT. 🙂 )
The last of the Koko pictures I took before she went off to Petsmart.
