If you would like to play the Spring game, just copy my diary, change the answers to yours and tag five of your furiends!
Five Things I Like About Spring:
1. Everyone has mentioned birds, but no one has mentioned…frogs! I LOVE the little froggies in the spring!
2. And moths – especially the big fat ones.
3. I love laying outside on the catwalk in the cattery when the weather is warm – ummm…
4. Walking in the garden
5. Rolling in the fresh warm dirt after the Mama has raked up her raised garden beds
Thanks, Jezzie for asking me to play.

I get to report this, because neither one is admitting to it - Samhain and Fearless actually curled up together on the Mama's bed last night!
The Mama couldn't quite believe it when, first - Fearless woke her with a gentle pat-pat-pat. Not typical behavior for the Midnight Marauder, who's former approach used to be something more like a sledgehammer head bonk in the face, though she hasn't been doing that either for awhile now. The Mama rolled over to pet her and she lay down quietly with her chin on the Mama's thigh.
But the real surprise was when Samhain came up on the bed beside Fearless. The Mama expected her to leave in a huff when she realized HER usual sleeping post was taken, but instead she lay down! And her back was actually touching Fearless's back!!! So, for a long time the Mama was afraid to move and ruin this happy family get-together.
A postscript to this is that the Mama noticed Samhain later this morning lying near Owl, who was in one of his favorite spots on top of his condo! She was so concerned at this un-Samhain-like behavior that she had to go make sure she wasn't sick!!!
Could it be that the Queen of Snark is mellowing?

Wow! This was certainly a big surprise! Here we are in the frozen northlands, afraid to spend too much time close to the woodstove because of that creature in the kitchen…but I’m getting ahead of myself. More about that in a minute.
Thank you everyone for the wonderful gifties!
From Manytoes and WeBeesSiamese we received some beautiful mementos – too bad the Catster fleas won’t let them show up yet. :(
Also Tundra and Manytoes gave us some shrimp.
Reanan and family – shrimp
Patches, Coda, Lucky and family – shrimp
Midnight and family – shrimp! So come on down, we’ll supply the shrimp sauce!
Tate, Harley Dreamette #2, Anna and family, and Sonny Bono and family gave me lovely red roses – thank you!
Benson and Napoleon gave me snowmen – fun!
Frankie Adopted at Last and family and Blizzie and his family gave me trophies – that was sweet, guys!
Gleek gave me a heart,
Monster and Xena Princess Warrior and family gave me pretty pink rosettes,
And Smiley Casanova gave me an Adopt a Pet rosette (how did he know???)
MILO and Mallee gave me a rainbow star – I love it!
And kisses to you, Zachie, for the diamond…or was that from Gris? (he thinks I have gorgeous eyes)
Tiger and his family gave me Hot cocoa – delicious!
And Blade gave me a ball of Yarn – but didn’t include the instructions of how to get untangled out of it – tee hee!
Oh, and cats gave us loads and loads of fishies - yum!
And the creature I was referring to is a kitten (3 mos. old or possibly younger) who apparently got dumped on our driveway. (It’s the pawrent’s fault for posting those signs that say: “SLOW NEUTERED FERAL CAT ZONE”.) He came running up to the Mama when she was leaving the cattery last Weds. Too tame to be completely feral, and his fur doesn’t seem thick enough for him to have been outside all this time. But he’s malnourished; his bones can be felt too easily through his skin, and his belly was the bloated potbelly of a kitten with worms. The pawrents have wormed him and have been feeding him up, but they have to be careful, because he won’t stop eating any food that’s where he can reach it. The Mama picked up all our bowls and put them up on the window ledge and the dresser where he couldn’t reach them!
Right now he’s in a kitty condo – it’s huge! We’ve all, including Socks investigated it when he’s been out of it, but we prefer to get on top of it and growl down at him. Who asked him here, I’d like to know! Don’t know if he’ll be staying – it’s making me nervous…(We’ll post some pics when the Catster fleas get under control.)
