Mommy is playing her Vince Vance songs, and there are tears in her eyes.
I don't know why her eyes leak, but today daddy was sighing.
He told me that soon we will be able to 'go home'.
Daddy and Mommy know their banker, Gretchen, who works across the street.
Gretchen is from New Orleans. She came up here after that big storm called Katrina. She wants to go home, too.
I know that she has gone to visit.
Mommy and Daddy got married in New Orleans. They flew down for 'the wedding'. I thought I would get to go, but Daddy told me I wouldn't like flying, and they got a nice lady to come and take care of me and the other cats.
I wonder how the cats in New Orleans celebrate? Do they have king cakes made out of fish, or chicken? Do they get catfish?
When Daddy worked at the restaurant in Alabama, and I was with him, he would bring me home fried catfish! I really loved it! When daddy makes catfish here, we celebrate-and Smokie and I are right up under his feet!
Well, there are things to be glad for now...Natalie has gone off to the vet for bloodwork, but she will be back. I am resting in my chair. Mommy gave me some chicken and said 'Happy Mardi Gras Ruffy' and kissed my head. I am running around in the morning now....trying to ignore the little scary cat...and maybe she's just small and bossy and not too scary. But the sun is starting to come out..
and fed, and warm and sleepy...life is just not so bad.
So Happy Mardis Gras everyone!
Have some fried catfish for me!
A someday Southern Cat,
By the way-Daddy named me after a Fish! I don't know why-Daddy's can be odd.

I read your diary; I see why you were chosen! It was very interesting travelling with your dad. Then you all got a nice cabin. Moved to another home.
We understand about the :whispers: litterbox - and sometimes after using it kitties run around and around full of energy.
Because they now feel better - after that!
Love Tyson xo
