Arrival Story:
Actually, Lovely Lily isn't exactly my cat...she is a refugee from Hurricane Katrina. Her parents live in Slidell, La., and they lost their house in the floodwaters. They boarded her in Jackson, MS, where they learned from a local shelter that I had contacted them and offered to foster a kitty whose parents were displaced by the storm. They drove her up here this past Saturday (9-24) and she's staying with me until they have a home for her to go back to.

I've told Kim and Rich they can come here to check on Lily's progress while she's "boarding" with me!

On Saturday, April 15, Auntie Jenn called Lily's mom in Louisiana to see how she's doing. Those of you who have followed her exile, and return to her real family, will be happy to know she's adjusting well (they lost their home completely in the hurricane, so going "home" was still strange!) and is now able to go outside, which she was not allowed to do while being fostered in Ethel. She's stalking the sprinkler system and having a high old time!


There's no place like home! There's no place like home!

Tomorrow, I get to go home!! After nearly six months in foster care, my very own human bean is coming to pick me up tomorrow and take me to our new house. I'm sure I'll be unnerved by the trip, and the strange new surroundings, for a little while at least, but I'll be back with my human mom and dad and Boo-Boo Kitty, too, I hope.

I want to say thanks to everyone who was so nice to me, and Auntie Jenn is going to give the Catster info to my mom, so she can start a page for me, so I'll try to stay in touch.

Special thanks to my very best catfriend in the whole world, Louis LeBeau, who has been there for me for many months. Thanks Louis. You should serve in the diplomatic catcorps.

God bless all you kitties and caretakers. I leave you with the immortal words of Charlotte Gray:

"After scolding one's cat, one looks into its face and is seized by the ugly suspicion that it understood every word. And has filed it for reference."

Au revoir, ma cheres!


Christmas shenanigans

Yes, it's true -- I knocked over a lamp while Auntie Jenn was gone for Christmas. I didn't mean to, and I'm glad it didn't break.

When she came home, we got ham!! I loooove ham! Honey Baked Ham from the Honey Baked Ham Store, too, not just any old ham.

Life is good.
