Chanandler Bong was playing with that Kitty Boinks toy with one back foot up in the air for reasons known only to her – and she had to pause to see what Art Vandelay was doing (he was just passing through).
Video! Say hi to Bert Macklin, International ManKitten of Mystery. Whether he’s klutzing off the end of a shelf, bouncing wildly with a toy in his mouth, jumping at a spot on the wall, or trying to climb up onto a cat tree, he does it with unmatched style and panache.
So, my parents were here for a few days – arrived Thursday, left yesterday. They drove from Maine to Florida, spent almost two weeks in Florida, and then drove home by way of Alabama. I would dearly have loved to join them in Florida, but as it turned out Fred had to travel for work last week, so I had to stay here and keep an eye on Crooked Acres.
Traveling with them was their dog Molly, who is a Shih-Tzu. They’ve been here with Molly before, at least twice. In the past, Tommy and Sugarbutt decided they weren’t skeered of Molly. This time around, the cats all pretty much disappeared the entire time she (and my parents) were here. Stefan initially decided Molly wasn’t anything to be scared of, and then changed his mind. Archie wasn’t bothered by my parents – and in fact let them both pet him – but was more than a little freaked out by Molly.
Alice spent most of her time on top of the cupboards, glaring judgmentally down at us all, so it appears that that job has been taken.
(I have more pictures of Molly; I’ll share them later in the week.)
