Long time, no purr. I tell ya, you'd think things would be calm and casual out here in the woods but the whole family are busy with their projects and life in general.
Good news though! The wee lass wants to help us blog again! YIPPEE!!!! WE don't care who helps us as long as we get our voice back! The PM will be helping too so between the two of them we should be back in the cyber world.
Banshee is doing well, laid back and footloose!
I'm my fine furry self and can't wait to be back sharing this man cat magic with the world again!
Party Time With PomPoms! Don't judge me.
We do have some sad news to share though. Miss Shade went to Rainbow Bridge June 2014.
She was an old girl and had had a mild stroke that spring. The PM took her out for a walk every day that spring in her arms so she could feel the wind in her fur as she loved that so. She was happy, eating, and drinking up until the very end. She had a very peaceful death, just went to sleep and didn't wake up.
The PM said we should all be lucky to have such a wonderful passing as that.
Miss Shade Loving the Wilds.
We miss her still very much.
Sweet Girlie. Forever Love.
We'll make our rounds soon to see all of our furriends.
We are back with a post that should have been up and running months ago. The PM was working on developing a home school co-op program so she's been busy. The DVD player died so this poor computer has been getting lots of use and the PM has it only for about an hour a day. She is getting an ipad for Christmas so paws crossed that that will lead to more posts! The Nanny is also getting into the modern ages and just bought her first computer so the PM will now have Internet usage when they are in town which is half of the week!
Enough about the PM and her time management issues, let's move onto the good stuff...US!!!!
We have three surprises to share with you all.
First off, look at this cool mat the PM bought us in PEI! She couldn't pass it by since it looks like all three of us! I was excited to show the comparison but it is hard to see around my body. Believe me, I am sitting on my exact likeness. We are pretending the middle one has some white on the underside for Shade.
Next we won a super fun gift basket!
Well, not us really. The PM took the kids on a Cat Walk to support our local cat rescue group and they were giving away prizes for the best cat costume and the wee lass won.
It contained nip! Banshee could not resist and climbed right in!
Our final surprise was a big one!
When the PM was over in PEI at the end of the summer she went out for lunch with #1 from over at The Poupounette! They had a great chat and plans were made for a get together next year, maybe with some other cat bloggers from the East Coast.
#1 and her crew gave us fantastic gift!
I couldn't wait to dive right in!
Toys and treats, our favs!!!
Banshee got tired of waiting and chewed right into these turkey bites.
Of course Miss Shade watched from the sidelines.
She didn't like the turkey.
Oh well, more for me!
The PM opened the Party Mix for her though so we all had a nice snack.
Thanks so much Poupounette critters and #1!!!
We'll be back next week with a Holiday post for sure.
The PM isn't sending many cards out this year so she promised we'd put up a Christmas post.
It has been way too long. Once a season really doesn't cut it at all. We are aiming for a better Fall!
Things have been busy here.
Shade enjoys some extreme Frisbee.
Banshee enjoyed her critter sitting Summer job.
Ratta the bun.
Flock of keets.
The PM also worked very hard on the wee lass's 7th birthday party, needing lots of feline assistance!
Banshee was in charge of window ledge sea diorama patrol...
while Goldie had the very important mermaid tail guard.
Banshee also tried to be part of the entertainment committee but that backfired a little bit. Two days before the party the PM was in a panic trying to get things planned and the decorating started. Banshee had gone out to the wood room for a snoop and brought back in with her a little friend.
The PM heard a squeal and Banshee dropped something which ran under the stove. The PM hoped it was just a mouse but when she moved the stove she saw a long tail. There was a weasel loose in the house!
It was pandemonium!!!
The beast left the premises but it was quite an ordeal with us cats being locked up in the bedrooms for 24 hrs and the PM sleeping on the kitchen table. That type of help the PM does not need!!
We are two fine felines, living together yet worlds apart on the cat spectrum. Each saved from life in a shelter to be brought into a cozy house in the woods. I am Goldie, the young mancat, brave, fluffy and apricot. I am Banshee, young calico, formally feral, arrived in November. We live with four of them, The Music Man, The Peacemaker and the wee ones. These are our stories.
