So, I didn't get a chance to get together the gardening/thankful fur three post yet - that will have to post later. But I did want to let everyone know that this Saturday is Kirzon's birthday (well, at least the day I picked for his birthday) and we will be having a little get together that you are all invited to - cat, dog, kitten, puppy or person! Kirzon will be turning 14 - that explains why he acts like an old man! I am working on the post so if I don't get to visit you today, that is why. I am still working on catching up - I got pretty close so if I have missed you I appologize - I had been going alphabetically, now that I am a bit more caught up I am going by date. I have had a couple blogger/reader issues, so that is making it take a bit longer!
For now, I will also be adding 2 updates at the end of each post - the Kirzon Fur Pulling Update, a Lola in her Room Update and the Kitten on the Banister Update. They are below.
Kirzon Fur Pulling Update - So last night when I got home I didn't find any new tuft piles but I did catch him pulling and told him to stop. I will have some pics of his one side later to post. Didn't find any more this morning either, so that is a good sign that he is at least doing it less (or he is hiding somewhere to do it that I haven't found yet).
Kitten Banister Update - Kittens slept in the bedroom again last night with the door shut - Barney joined them (I let the older cats in if they want to be because there is enough for them too - except Kirzon, because he likes to only eat the squishy food and that is not in the bedroom. He is ok with it though). Brad let Barney out early but the kittens stayed. Caught Stella on the banister twice this morning - she got down before I had to pull her down. I think it is when she is up there playing with Barney - she goes up there to get a good angle to jump on him or something, but he will sit and just watch her because he doesn't go up there (oh I hope he never does - he is still kind of pear shaped, though less so, and it seems like he would be bad at it - he is bigger than he realizes and not as good at some things - Floyd had the same problem and would misjudge on occasion).
Lola in her Room Update - Lola is doing good in her room. I have added an air filter in there to keep it mostly stink free (I scoop often but it still can get a bit icky because well, it is cat pee) and have the fans going to circulate the air (since the door is closed it is tough to get the air moving in there). I think there is a chance she peed somewhere in the room but I can't figure out where (it could just have been the garbage but I took that out so I am not sure at the moment) - the good thing is with Halloween coming we will be going to the storage locker and I will be able to get the black light. That really shows it well. When I get home from work I spend time in there (usually at least an hour) and I let one other cat in - usually Barney or Kirzon because she gets along with them the best. I have offered to let her come out but she really isn't too interested yet. She has a light that is on all the time - she only seems to be upset in there when it is off, and also I want her to have light if say there is a storm and it gets dark during the day. She has a great storm hiding place too so she usually stays if it isn't a really nasty one where I feel the need to gather the cats.
So that is all I have for now - our garden/thankful fur three will be up later on, after 7 our time most likely. And I am not sure but there may not be a Friends on Friday due to birthday prep - it depends on how much I can get done tonight - I am going to try and make him a nice picture! Plus, I am going to work on our October banner - we will be going pink for Breast Cancer Awareness month (with a small yellow break for Livestrong Day and of course, we will go all out for Halloween - I hope!)
Have a great day everyone!
Edited to add: Have you seen the Ikea Cat-Alogue? I got an email and didn't think it was real (could be a spam) so I didn't click the link, but instead I went in to the Ikea site (I go there a lot!) It was through the UK site in the email, so I went to ikea.com, picked UK as my country instead of US and there was a link there - I know a lot of you have seen the commercial - this has to be in relation to that. The link is http://ikeacat-alogue.ie/, or just go to Ikea.com, pick UK as your country and you will see it listed on the first page - so much cuteness!
