We are finally back! There was great debate whether to simply get a new keyboard or buy a new Mac. What is on the wish list is pretty pricey so a keyboard it is until this one truly dies. Then we had trouble with the new one but it seems OK now.

Anyway, back to the important things in life... us!

I wanted to share with you a very cool thing that the PM did while she was away on the Island. Not only did the PM meet lots of critters, she also met up with some fellow cat bloggers.

She spent the afternoon at #1 from The Poupounette's cottage where she also met Ms. C from Tabby Normal

It was a wonderful time of chatting, stories, food and wine! They hope to do it again next year. I think us felines should be invited next time.

The PM received this great gift from Ms. C.

I was annoyed that I could not actually eat that shiny fish. The PM then pulled out a gift bag. More people stuff that I can't touch or eat??

She then read the tag.

Yippee!!! A gift from our friends!! How exciting!! Goldie and Shade were too hot and were in the basement so I got to open it!

Smells delightful!


More fun toys.

Treats too!

Excuse me while I give this a good goin' over!!!!

Glad you're back. Let's hope the computer does it for a bit longer, mom says she knows how pricey they are. And mom says we shouldn't tell how jealous she was she couldn't be at this meeting. Ooops. Great gifts from great friends!

sick computers stink. we hope yours lasts a long time cause they cost lotsa green papers and that might come out of your treats budget.

we're glad your mommy had fun but is now home and safe with you

What a beautiful cat you are Banshee -- perfectly proportioned -- a little rounded but not fat. Bailey thinks all cats should be like that.

Hello Banshee. it's so nice to see your beautiful self again! Meowmy really wishes she could have been at the International Cat Lady Convention, that sounds like such fun. And what nice gifts you (and Goldie and Shade!) got from the cat ladies!
