Hello friends! It seems like we have been gone so very long. Mom was taking summer classes and just didn't have the time to keep up on here. She has a week before fall classes start. She hopes they won't be quite as tough because they are stretched out for a full semester and not crammed into five weeks.
So, what have we been up to? Not much. Mom was working, going to school, and going to visit Grammy. She tried to always take some time to play with us at night, I think it helped her as much as it helped us. Something about a stress reliever..... Grammy is in a nursing home and is still improving from her stroke. She is walking with a walker and now able to eat real food. She has come a long way, but she still needs more therapy yet because she wants out of the nursing home and into something like assisted living.
We have all been okay. Rusty went back for a check-up from his pancreatitis flare up. Doc said that his liver and pancreas looked good, but was concerned that his kidney values are starting to show some early signs of trouble. She wanted him to try the prescription food, we bought one can and he won't eat it. He will go to our local vet and get blood work and a urine sample in the fall to see if there are further changes.
I was hunter extraordinaire today. I killed a mole in the basement and left it on the rug for mom, right by her computer. I think she was a little grossed out, but she praised me all the same.
I miss hanging out with my pals. I feel like we missed so much. I hope everyone has been doing okay. We will try to get here more often.
Hugs and purrs, Skylar

*Jumps up and down with joy!* I am so GLAD you are back! I missed you and your furmily.
Love and purrs,
Thanks Marmelade! We really missed being here. Tell your family that we said Hi!
We missed you, too!
Moles?? In the house?? Euwwwwwwww!
Hi WeBees! Yep, moles. How crazy to try to enter a house with nine cats! It is gross, we have tried to block where we think they are getting in, but they only need a small opening. We have only ever seen them in the basement and they are usually very quickly dispatched by the resident hunters. Mom won't have any kind of poison outside for fear that a stray might eat a poisoned mole, vole, mouse etc.
Yes, we get an odd mouse in our (old) house too, and more in the cellar, but we are not allowed down there, meowmy calls it a dungeon...its a 'Michigan' basement...UGH!
Our only traps are all inside the vents so that meowmy has to check them herself...but mostly no critter gets caught!
Only if one is dumb enough to come in the main part of our den...we got a deer mouse once!
Glad to hear from you!
We've got moles in our yard. Mom says they are digging up the lawn and the pathway to the house. :( Any ideas on what to do? Mom doesn't want to use poison for the same fears your mama has about other animals.
Hi, Skylar! Good to see you again. We haven't gotten any moles in our house, but we apparently have some really stupid mice in our neighborhood!
Kudos to you, great grey and white hunter! A mole! That takes some power and skill, my brave lad.
We're glad your back and your grammy is healing. Enjoy your time with mom, its the best.
Glad you're back, and we're sending lots of purrs to Rusty!
We are glad you are back too, we have missed you Skylar! sending purrs to Rusty as well!
Hope to hear from you again real soon
