What a relief! I guess there was a teeny part of us that worried it was all a bad joke and that something would happen....but WAHOO! Perfect for celebrating FAT TUESDAY! & for us, Paczki Day! Nuttin like a huge fruit filled fried ball of dough to celebrate! The bakery was packed as usual, but somehow, even waiting there, everyone is in such a good mood, and chatting, it wasn't so bad. Momma has the zydeco music playing, and her plastic beads on & we are celebrating this as a day of happiness on so many levels. So to everyone, HAPPY HAPPY DAY!!! mmmmmmm donuts.....(and did you know, that they magically remove ALL of the calories just for today?) yeah right..... yay Catster!

Well it seems like not long ago, I thought we would be deleting our pages today. Momma is so glad she waited. Originally she was gonna delete Felix after his week, and so on. For some reason, she felt that she should not. Good call Momma! So today we can just complain about the 4 inches of snow HISS and the cold & below zero windchills again DOUBLE HISS!!! I did decide to attack the throw rug the other day. Lazy throw rug...just laying there - I schooled that darn rug but good! The Dad was cracking up and told me I was silly. No...The Dad - I saved you from the evil lurking rug I did...I got to have my favorite chicken & liver food yesterday....mmmmmmm. Mom spotted Fritz the other day - he came in the yard to meow at her & eat. He was limping and his paw was scabbed up. But he has not come back. She said she will maybe try & trap him and get him to the vet the TNR group uses. Hopefully he shows up again. Momma thought he was gone... still no Bunny though. Oh I went out on my leash Friday nite, and something must have been spooky, because I was walking around all crouched down slinky like. Mom said it was funny. We still have not heard from the vet about Felix. Momma is getting a mite perturbed about it, it has been 2 weeks. The vet did not fill out the insurance form until the special vet said what he thought, so it has delayed turning it in, and it takes a month to get reimbursed. So if we do not hear anything tomorrow, Momma will call & ask what the heck... I mean seriously Felix could have had surgery & be recovering already....o well. I am so very happy that we will still be here tomorrow!! I am so happy for my friends! We do have pics to put up, but Momma is waiting to see what is up here. Well a happy goodnite my pals!

Well this would have been my week to say goodbye - I am really glad that things seemed to work out. We were so sad, and now we are cautiously optimistic, although we have not heard anything since the initial "we are saved!" We continue to visit Macy's site, and will be trying to visit some other sites as well. Momma says once this wedding is over, she can relax a bit more. So here we go AGAIN with this hissing cold. Tired-done-over it. Gonna have below zero temps again! I gotta give mom props, she bundles up & takes me out on my leash, but there is nothing to sniff, really. I strolled around the patio & driveway, looking for, I don't know what, but something to chase or pee on. Everything is covered in snow, and one day when I tried to dig in the snow & play, it was so cold that my paws started to hurt very much, I couldn't take a step, and crouched down & started to cry. Momma saved me! She snatched me up & brought me inside & held me close & held my toes. And I got a treat too. Boy, I don't know how those outside kitties can deal with it. Makes me feel sorry for them, even though they keep trying to take over MY YARD. The problem is then I get agitated, because I wanna go out, so I pace at night sometimes, and then I want to spray. Momma uses all the calming stuff, and tries to distract me. I seem to do ok when I am able to take my walkie each day. I have a bush that I mark, and I am happy & then I don't do it in the house. Momma sometimes wonders if when I got neutered, they missed some boy parts - she says when I go to the vet, she is gonna ask if they can tell. Or maybe I am just a dominant boy-cat. I dunno. I am not mean or anything. Speaking of the vet, still no word from the specialist on Felix - so nothing to report there. Momma says that she liked giving us each a week for diaries, and she will continue it that way, so that we all can have a chance to speak our minds. Oh something I recently started doing that Momma loves - I will beg to climb on her shoulders. I crawl up there and plop down across her whole shoulders, and lay my head on her shoulder. Sometimes I purr, or fall asleep - or drool...Momma will hold my tail to help me stay steady and walk around with me. She calls it "wearing her Tiggie stole" No idea why I started this, but she always stops what she is doing when I ask her so I can come aboard. Spring fever is setting in - I think that after the wedding, she will be going through stuff & cleaning & painting and stuff. There are alot of those little things that just don't get finished around here that she is determined to FINISH!
My human sister will be gone for a few months - she will be a Naturalist counselor at a State Park for University of Inidana, then through the school she is in, she will be in Borneo for a while, working at the orangutan reserve. How exciting is that? She has traveled so many places - Spain, London,Galapagos, New Zealand, Fiji, Costa Rica, Ecuador, The Amazon- & gone to school in Australia. Not to mention the states she has visited- a pretty seasoned traveler!
So my friends, things are ok, and sometimes that is exactly what ya want. I probably won't be back here until Wednesday or Thursday - Momma has some work projects that will take time to do, so NO PLAYING. See you in a day or so pals!
