tuna & turkey and I must confess, I like to get a taste of Mom's oatmeal and one tsp of milk when Mom has cereal.

I can open the closet door, & I try to turn the knob on the back door to go on the screen porch. I also like to drag towels, placemat, or blanket through the house & stash them behind the couch.I tried to drag a king size comforter up the basement stairs

indoors

Arrival Story:
My son had heard meowing a few days earlier outside his window. We were outside one morning and saw little legs under our truck. We have a few feral cats around, so we were surprised when I called out & he came running! he meowed & rubbed on our legs and purred so loud he almost fell over. He was a filthy scrawny mess. We fell for him instantly and I took him to the vet, he had fleas, a respiratory infection and his eyes were infected. But after a few months of meds, good food & lots of love, he has grown into a wonderful kitty.

Catster has not let us sign in the past couple days, and I tried so hard. I knew I was about to lose my old friend Ruffy. I cannot even send a gift today.

Ruffy, my friend, I will miss you - your words of wisdom have been heard by many, and have been a guide to us. I will look up at the sky and see you, twinkling in the stars, keeping an eye on us all. I am glad you are not in pain, but it does hurt to let you go. We send our hugs to your parents, as much as they knew the time was coming, it is still so hard. We salute you our Wise Poet, and look forward to seeing you still among the pages of Catster. Rest well my friend...your journey begins again.....from your fellow orangey team mate Tigger & family.

Yes we are still here...Momma is sad we missed talk like a pirate day...I didn't get to be Capt Crookshanks la Tig arrggg. Honestly, Momma has been so swamped with work, being very, very behind on much of it. Then with our installation vehicle getting stolen we then had to change our home locks, just in case. Trying to remember everything in there for the insurance, figuring out how to get another truck - that part of our business has completely stalled without one. Backing up even more- Well it has been depressing and stressful. Then coming here - trying to either log in, or not being able to comment on other diaries...that is kinda depressing too. Don't get me wrong, I know the folks at I-5 are working on things, and patience is a virtue - Momma just doesn't have the patience lately to relog and relog in. We are all well though, and that is good. Please know our pals, that we do think about all of you ALL THE TIME. We are hoping soon to get back into the swing of things, the constant relogging in is really what is wearing thin. Unless it is just our computer? Anyhows - we will try to be back more once this mess all settles. Purrs to everyone - (and some arrghs and avast ye mateys) from the belated, but still wanna-be pirate Capt Crookshanks La Tig

 

holy moly

I have been trying & trying to get on here - just this morning Momma tried and re-entered our log in close to 20 times just to see anything, but got no where. Just thought we would try now. I want to thank everyone for all our gotcha gifties. It is so frustrating still to not be able to comment on a diary or say hello. We are still here waiting in the wings to PARTY!!! Some crummy things have occurred though. 2 weeks ago our installation work truck was stolen at a job site right in the afternoon! AND with an alarm on it! We had so much equipment and parts on that truck - basically most of our livelyhood. So now dealing with insurance trying to remember everything that was on it, and probably won't get very much for the truck. It was a good ol truck - had over 200K miles on it & it was still going. After the house being broken into a couple years ago, this was another blow. But Momma & The Dad keep saying that it is crummy, but there are those that have lost their whole home, so this is just a truck with stuff on it. Some days though, it is still sad..seems like you work so very hard, and this happens. Hoping to get back on to change to our "talk like a pirate" names in a day or two. Purrs to all, and I sure hope everyone is doing ok - we want to talk to everyone so bad, but as many times as we relog in, it won;t let us go to do anything.....keeping the faith though. purrs The Tigman
