Hi Everyone! So today is going to be a Random Monday. I didn't realize how behind I am in visiting everyone - I hate it. I was going to try to visit everyone who commented first but oh that is tough to do going back and forth so much. Normally I go from most unread to least unread but oh I am so behind that the most unreads are super high! I think A-Z might have to be the plan of attack this time - just not sure yet.
So let me see, we had another bad storm here and there is a lot of power out in the area - it is mostly north. Wow, I don't even think I told you guys that the last storm here, where we had tornados, brushed our house - the tornado that is. There were storms almost the same day the past 2 years too - weird. The broken trees made me sad but I was glad no one was hurt.
Actually maybe I did mention it because the whole two years thing seems familiar. Who knows.
Kirzon has been driving me crazy lately because he wakes me up in the morning because he is hungry. Now nothing has changed for his feeding times or anything - I think he is just getting older and a bit crazy. He is going to be 15 soon you know.
Lola is doing pretty good lately - she is still hissy but she goes and sits near the other cats sometimes, so that is good progress. And she has her own room still for when we are not home, and I think that helps too. She gets a break from the crazies.
Virgil is doing good - he is always so tiny to me - I want him to eat more. He does eat a lot when it is something he likes which is good but he just seems tiny to me. I guess that is because some of the others are very big.
Barney is very Barneylike. He bugs Lola but then he is the biggest snugglebug of all the cats. His allergies are bugging his eyes sometimes, and usually I know it is coming if I have a bad sinus headache - we get them at the same time. He still runs around like a crazyman though, so I guess they don't bother him too much!
Gus is very calm compared to everyone else. Well, mostly. He is so funny because he will reach out for you to tell you he wants petting - he even will tap your head for it if you are behind him. He likes to sleep in the kitty bed on the bed, but he loves the kitchen chairs - weird.
Stella - she is quite a tomboy and boy, she loves to play. She attacks things outside the patio doors (doesn't get them of course), climbs in the drapes, and jumps and chases everything and anything. She is a sweetheart most of the time but she gets a little weird around Lola still - but they are getting better with each other. Oh, and she broke a table the other day playing - hopefully I can fix it (it is made of a glass block top and one of the blocks totally broke, and a couple others chipped). I don't really hold it against her though - but it was because she was being crazy and chasing outdoor bugs (it was by the back patio doors).
Trixie is just a sweetie. She also likes the kitty bed and the kitchen chairs - she and Gus hang out there a lot. She is so funny because some things that you would think wouldn't scare her do (like moving things around - she doesn't like that at all, like the laundry basket for example) but she is the bravest for other things and will totally be the first one to check things out. And she is my little "squirmy wormy" because she loves to jump on the bed and roll all over and be petted. And she totally knows the nickname squirmy wormy now - so funny!
And for me, well, things are the same - hopefully they will improve soon. I know it could be a lot worse. I am hoping to get in a lot of visiting this week so keep your fingers crossed for me that I can do that - it always makes me feel better when I do get to.
See you all sometime - I am still working on the best way to get a visit in (it has been tough even typing this today because I have to keep going away to work on other things, but the rest of the week will hopefully be more quiet!)
Hugs and purrs to all our friends out there!!
