If you would go vote for Frog Alice in the Blue’s Buddies Halloween Costume contest, she would be ever so appreciative! (You can vote once a day, so expect to see this at the top of posts for the next week!)


One year ago, we had the Grocers in residence. One of the Grocers was this girl, Catelyn:

Remember her? She was floofy and fabulous.

SO floofy. SO fabulous.

Catelyn was trapped as part of a group Trap-Neuter-Return, but it was realized that she was too small and friendly to be released with the others, so she joined the Grocers (who had been with us for about a month).

That litter was adopted more quickly than any litter I’ve had, I think – of course, it helped that Trader Joe (now Sherman), Von, and Winn Dixie were adopted before they were even ready to go. Ralph and Catelyn were both adopted (separately) the very night they went to Petsmart. PW was adopted two days later.

I tell you her back story so I can tell you this: Catelyn has been returned. This is what she looks like now:

Still SO floofy and fabulous!

I won’t go into details about why she was returned, but she may need to be on a special diet, Urinary SO (or C/D Multicare). She is doing well, although she’s thin and was covered in fleas. If anyone’s interested in adopting her, you can contact Susan (contact information at the bottom of the page here) to discuss it.


This is kind of a Throw Back Thursday picture:

That’s Louganis, one month ago. Stefan (or maybe Dennis) was visiting, and Louganis felt the need to put on his floof suit.


“Seriously, lady. You ’bout done with that camera?”

I’m annoying Torres, and she’s telling me all about it.

Louganis nails the dive.
(Thanks, Candace!)

Spitz considers the cat tree.
(Someone needs to clean the outside of that window, y’think?)

Phelps considers the cat tree.

Oh, how they love to balance there, especially Spitz.

I’d tell you who that is making the dive from the cat tree to the bed, but I have no idea. I just know it isn’t Spitz!

Another non-Spitz kitten. I think it’s Phelps.

The Swimmers are off to Petsmart very early this morning (I have an appointment in that general direction, so I’m dropping them off first). The down side is that we will be kitten-free for the foreseeable future (don’t worry, I’m not having surgery ’til November 4th, so there’ll still be posts; I’m planning a Crooked Acres post and a post with some of my pictures from Myrtle Beach) and I am going to miss the Swimmers like crazy. The up side is that I’ll get to see Ambercup and Zuke for a little while this morning; hopefully I’ll remember to grab my camera on the way out!


That look on Stefan’s face cracks me UP. (That’s a teaser hanging over his head, though it kind of looks like he’s wearing a hat, doesn’t it?)
