We sure have had some wild weather this summer in Connecticut! It's been so very hot. I am so glad Daddy put the window AC units in so I can stay cool and comfy. Of course, the electric will be unthinkable.
Yesterday there was a tornado in the town where my Mommy works in Bristol, CT. As my pal Calvin would say...wowza!!! Thankfully she was home minding the construction crew at our house. You should see the big excavator and backhoe in the yard! Gilmore thinks he is going to be allowed to drive one of them. He is so silly and orange, but he just stares out the window longingly at the machines. He thinks he's such a big mancat that he could do the job for Mommy.
All the cats have emerged from hiding after a day of hammering and drilling and house shaking. We are having lots of noisy work done on our yard. We hear jackhammers and equipment all day long. We are getting more used to it, and as soon as we hear the contractors' trucks pulling away down the street, we all know it's safe to come out.
Poor Cas is terrified of noises of all kinds. Mommy has had to pry him out of Daddy's barbecue cabinet where he hides and rolls himself into a tight ball of terror. We have had a lot of thunder too, which really upsets him. Yesterday he went to the vet for his boosters. He got more than he bargained for when he got his teeth scraped. He is gaining weight and is already very big...he has to stop gaining weight. Other than that, he is a very healthy and almost 18 pound hunk of mancatliness.
Mommy is leaving us alone with Daddy starting Sunday to go on a business trip to Orlando. I hope he remembers to feed us! I will put Gilmore in charge of reminding him I think.

Ooh those noises sound scary Mouse! I hate when the garbage truck comes by our house.
I'll bet your dad will do a fine job - when our mom is gone Dad does A-OK - but we're always glad when Mom comes back.
It sure is nice that Cas has a furmily to comfort him now. He must have been a very frightened kitty outdoors all by himself. Purrs to the food-bowl monitor Gilmore! I'm sure between the two of you, you can make sure your daddy puts the food out at the right time! :-)
