Since it has been quite a long time since we have been active, we are going to be Under Construction for a while - trying new fonts, designs, and updating our sidebar stuff. Hopefully we will get it how we like it soon so it won't change too much!

Also - Can someone tell me how to get rid of the giant gap below this notice - I cannot figure out how to do it - thanks!!

That is the temperature it was outside this morning when I left for work. At least it is sunny I guess.

So today is an exciting day at House of Cats - the Naughty Kitty Club is going well (I am changing one little thing on the badge - the graffiti in the background needs to be more "graffiti like") and we got some exciting news today - our VSquillion adoption from the Cat Blogosphere came through today! So, without further ado, we would like to introduce Roxie! She will be residing in our sidebar and hopefully have a wonderful time with us!

In other news, two of the kitties are heading to the vet this weekend - Virigl for his annual check up and Barney for his eyes. He also has a new bald spot on his chin - I noticed it on Tuesday and I think he must have done it after I got home Tuesday because I would swear it wasn't there earlier that night. I was petting him and thought I got his lip by accident, but it was way too far back, so I looked and there was a bald spot. Plus his eyes are still being stubborn. I think Kirzon is getting some tooth issues again - he needs his teeth cleaned (he gets bad tarter buildup and stinky breath from it)but I am waiting til after the first of the year so I can take some time off to do it (I ended up having one day off that I am taking tomorrow but didn't know it in time to set up the procedure because he probably needs antibiotics first, and I had to use it before everyone else was off). Lola is just being her usual furry, lazy, cranky old lady self.

I am going to try and get some pictures up tonight if the cats are willing. They have been busy being bad lately with the tree, so we will see!

BURRRRRRRRRRR, it was 32 here this morning with a windchill of 25. Tonight it's going down to 15. That's absurd. Welcome to the cold clutches of winter!

Goodness that's cold!

We hope Barney's eyes are okay and the blad spot turns out to ve nothing. Still we have our fingers and paws crossed for you and the vet visits!

It was 30 in Virginia this AM and crazy windy ... glad to have a comfy spot on the sofa ...

It's sure takes a lot to keep kitties healthy, doesn't it! I hope Virgil checks out A-OK, and that Barney gets a remedy for his eyes.

I wouldn't worry about the bald spot too much. Sometimes an adolescent kitty will get acne -- maybe he is rubbing it 'cause he has a zit or something. Dante had bad acne and had to go on antibiotics when he was younger.

Barney's on the LOLSpot again today!
