If you are in the North Alabama area, the yearly TICA Cat Show is taking place at the end of June! Check out the flyer (click on it to see the larger version). Also check out the event page on Facebook – they’re still looking for volunteers to wipe down cages between cats if you’re interested and able to help. 100% of the gate money benefits Challenger’s House, so it’s a fun and interesting event and a good cause. If you’re interested in showing your own cat, go see the flyer here for instructions.
How have you not named the newbies yet?
I believe there’s going to be a naming contest run by the DJ who found them. I’m waiting to hear the details – and I will, of course, provide a link so y’all can enter.
(You know that otherwise I’d have named ’em all by now!)
I hope he [Andouille] does have a lot of of people asking about him. I really want this litter to go as fast as the Grocers. I want to say they are the record holders for all being adopted either before they got to Petsmart or the day they arrived?
I’m trying to remember – I think it might be a tie between the Grocers and the Fakers – 4 of the 6 Fakers were adopted and never had to sit at Petsmart, whereas the Grocers… 3 were adopted and didn’t have to go to Petsmart, 3 went to Petsmart, and 2 were adopted the night they went, so yes – the Grocers are the record holders, because only PW had to sit at Petsmart, whereas 3 of the Fakers (if we’re including mama Regina Phalange) had to sit there.
Has Fred succumbed to the charms of this group like the rest of us? I’m not use to seeing him in there playing with the babies until they are a little bit older.
Fred has very slowly started to come around – I make him sit in the kitten room with me in the evenings for a little while, because it does none of us any favors if I’m the only human they come into contact with!
So I was sitting down for a cup of coffee and to start a new book. The story is set in Virginia and has ghosts and post Civil War action in flashbacks. Very atmospheric. A new character has just been introduced. His name is Congressman J. Dudley Apperson. I just about spewed coffee all over the place. I immediately saw a picture of Senator Stanley J. Boogerton. I have to put the book down because I cannot read any further until the laughing stops!
Congressman J. Dudley Apperson would be a MOST EXCELLENT kitten name. (And oh how I miss the Senator, even still.)
Praline will have you know that the kittens have a MUCH nicer and not-chomped-upon scratcher bowl now, since Andouille and Beignet’s Mama and Daddy were kind enough to bring a new one. Praline is just saying goodbye to the old one.
Video! Wherein Andouille and Beignet ponder that eternal question.
Fred was headed out to open the chicken coop, and Frankie was accompanying him, as usual. (Have I mentioned that Frankie adores Fred and follows him around like a puppy?) Then Frankie saw a sight that made him change direction.
