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!!

Crazy cats

So yesterday I didn't get a chance to visit everyone I hoped or post like I planned, because we ended up running errands - getting stuff for the new kitty, like kitten food. It is so funny because we had found some left over kitten food, still in code, about a month ago, so since there were only a couple cans we brought them to the vet for them to use or give to someone who would need it - and guess who is using it - Barney! We still have all the other kitten stuff from Virgil, like the little bitty litter box, and the toys and his baby blanket.

I am going to head up to the vet today and visit Barney - and I am bringing Virgil's blanket with. I rubbed it on all the kitty chins so they would stink it up a bit, and then I slept with it, so Barney can get used to all our smells. I am very excited.

The other exciting thing is that is is getting near Virgil's birthday - he will be a whole year old on July 4! He is still kitten crazy though - he is very active. I have found one thing - when he is playing with his feather toy, and gets frustrated he can't catch it, he hisses at it. It isn't mean, he doesn't puff up or anything, I think he is just so frustrated he doesn't know what to do. It is so funny, and I always tell him it is ok, he will catch it soon. He is less interested in fetch lately - feathers are the thing right now. I am not sure how he will react to the fireworks on July 4 - he probably doesn't remember them. The other three don't seem to mind most of them, but if there are any really close they run and hide. We aren't sure what to get him, since we have so many toys now. Maybe some treats. Oh, and the good news is that he is doing much better - his eye is hardly goopy at all now. It should be perfect in a day or so.

I am going to try and get some more Barney pics today - my phones camera is picky so it is tough, but I am sure I can get one or two. I will post them tonight!
