The Garden

Mom's garden really blossomed while we were in Mary-land. Here are a few pictures.

This is the shade garden.

This is the side garden we see from the kitchen window.

This is the garden in our front yard. Most folks around here have grass.  Not Mom. I think it's much prettier.

Mom has lettuce and a-roo-gala in window boxes on the side porch railings.

Of course, no view of our gardens would be complete without a photo of our front steps and the colorful plants Mom has arranged there, and you can see me, too.

WOW! Time flies.

TEN years ago. Count 'em. TEN!

TEN years ago I was hit by a car and left for dead in the middle of a busy street in New Haven Connecticat.

TEN years ago, my leg was broken in two places and my leg was dislocated at the hip.

TEN years ago, Malcolm rescued me, and then hundreds of cat lovers around the world helped with green papers to pay the very big bill and put me back together.

Lookit those stitches.

I am still here. I can run and jump and do whatever I want, thanks in no small way to the cat lovers who helped save my life.

TEN years ago I could have gone to the Rainbow Bridge, but I am still here, enjoying the simple pleasure of being alive.

It has been TEN years, but I have not forgotten those of you who helped save my life.

THANK YOU, once again, from the bottom of my little furry heart.

A Good Vacation Is...

Mom says a good vacation always includes....

Good food. (This is Dim Sum at Tearrific)

Fine Art. (this is at Anne Marie Gardens)

And Fambly.

Check, check, and check.

We'll be home soon. (I'm really eager to get out of these traveling digs.)

More Bread, and Cake

Mom made six more loaves of bread this morning, for my Mary-land fambly.

and this is all that's left of the big cake she made yesterday.
Today we all went for Dim-Sum, but I didn't eat any of that.

My CatGal Pal Delilah

Delilah is the new cat in my Mary-land fambly. She is tiny and delicate and doesn't take any guff from anybody.  We got along right away.

She is the real queen of the house.
Isn't she a cutie-pie?

Millie Monday

I'm only going on the porch, Mom. No need to check up on me every five minutes. I mean, like, really!

Friday on the Porch

Yes, I am on the front porch. I love being able to go out there whenever I want.

On The Bed

It was chilly last night, so I slept on the bed with Mom. It makes a nice change.

The Squad is Coming

Yup. Mom called some guys called The Mosquito Squad and they are coming to spray our property with stuff to kill mosquitoes and ticks. Mom says I can't be out on the porch when they come, so I'm confined to the inside, but it's nice to know Mom won't have to worry about getting Lyme Disease again this year.

I'm fine, I just haven't been posing for pictures. Mom has been finishing up quilts and cleaning the house. And she has been reading. She just finished Before The Fall and now she is reading The Fireman. She loved Before The Fall but thinks The Fireman needed a good editor.

June 2 2016 Google Doodle

If you don't do anything else today, please do this. Go to Google, and watch today's Google Doodle animation. It celebrates Lotte Reiniger, a German filmmaker who pioneered silhouette films.

It is so totally cool and beautiful. After you're done watching (and if you're anything like Mom, wiping the tears out of your eyes...) then click the link that says "Watch how today's doodle was made."

If you miss this today, you can go to: to see it. And depending on where you live, you might not see this one. Google has different doodles for different countries. For example, Mom and I did not see Suzanne Leglen's doodle on May 24 because we do not live in France.
