Friends and Kitties!
I bought myself new flannel sheets!
Two sets, one is lilac with hootie owls, and the second is...wait for it...
Totally calorie free.
And on sale.
The cats love 'em, and so do I. It just about killed me to leave my snug sheets and get up Saturday morning at 05:30 and return to the Salt Mines. Yup, my vacation is over.
For the many of you who wondered about the dessert I ate at Mom and Dad's house--it was angel food cake covered in non-dairy whipped topping, with fresh raspberries and Trader Joe's fat-free fudge sauce. SO delicious. My folks never fail to spoil me culinarily rotten when I visit them, and this trip was no exception. Thank goodness they keep me on my toes, doing stuff, or they'd have to roll me onto the plane for the return flight. Their kitty Shadow is so friendly, she slept tight against me the first night but bugged out as soon as I paid her any attention. Typical feline. It's been a while since I've had a chance to play with a young cat for an extended period of time and we had tons of fun; she's a goof, stalking Monsters and leaping in the air at Fairies. My folks are completely enslaved, which cracks me up...I kept telling them "times this by thirteen!"
In other news, Scott was interviewed (with a few other wonderful Cat Daddies) on being be a Cat Guy!
He's a great Cat Dad and there would be no way on earth that we could care for so may cats without him working from home and
catering to their every whim tending to them during the day. I take the evening shift, with playing, grooming, and treats. They have preferences for me or him--Salem keeps company with Scott when he's in his office (desk pestering) but enjoys morning time (combing and general fussing) in the bathroom with me. Felix is Daddy's boy entirely. Sure, he'll accept rubbins and luvvins from me, but Daddy is the One. Rupert is my big Gray Man. And so it goes.
The weather here has been beautiful, perfect for lazing around on the Catio, reading. I'm deep into the second book The Twelve of Justin Cronin's "The Passage" trilogy, for the second time actually. I blazed through it the first time in two days just to see how it turned out, and now I'm rereading it, purely to immerse myself in the story. I am eagerly awaiting November 13th which is when Joe Abercrombie's new book Red Country will be released in the US. Don't expect to find me doing anything else but reading that day, snuggled up in my snazzy new sheets.
Happy Sunday, and have a GREAT week!
