I quite enjoy knocking things off the bathroom counter if it does not belong there


Arrival Story:
My daughter was interning at a local Humane Society, and someone brought her in - 1 week old. He had tried to bottle feed her, but realized it was too much for him. So my daugher brought her home & we took turns feeding her round the clock, and watching her grow. We loved her too much to give her back, so we adopted her. She never had any other interaction with other cats, so we think because of this she is very shy & doesn't really like new people or changes at all. She adores me & my husband, and tolerates others. But she is a very sweet girl.

Maizy has many different chirps and mews that she can really convey her mood. She loves to sip from the bathroom sink faucet, and every morning has a ritual of brushing & sips that must take place, in a certain order, down to the number of brushstrokes on her tail!

So on Monday, we got 8 inches of snow. Yesterday, it hit in the 40's and things are melting fast. Now by the weekend we will be back in the 20 mark. Yesterday morning, Momma was looking out the garden window over the sink about to take a sip of coffee, when she saw WATER ALL OVER the flat part of the window inside. Then upon looking up, where the window slants, water was pouring in. EEEEEEEK so she had to pull all the plants out, and pull the piece of linoleum up, and underneath it was soaked, and started to mildwey already. So Momma - Miss afraid of heights, did what she had to do, and got the rickety ladder out of the garage, and went up by the window to break all the chunks of ice off the gutter edge & the wondow edges. It seems that some of the icicles formed and ran along the outer edge of the window, then when it got cold again, it separated that part enough to where water came in. By doing that at least the water stopped. Much of the ice has melted, and will today also. Tomorrow we are to get rain - not a welcome thought - no where for the runoff to go. But it sure is nice to see the edges of the grass. Tigger has already started getting worked up about patrolling outside on his leash. He has gone out in the snow a few times, but his paws got cold & started to hurt so he could not play in the snow. The window in the kitchen is open a bit today to air the house out, so we will take turns sitting in it & sniffing for spring in the air. Momma made a grilled cheese & ham sandwich yesterday, so I got a bite of ham, but just a bite. It is the low sodium one too, so Momma said it was ok. I wanted more, but alas, my sad whiney face did not work. So I guess it was a good day for me, and isn't that what is important? me? I should be back this week with the Felix update, as soon as we hear anything. Such a relief that we do not have to say goodbye to everyone...ahhh time for a beauty nap my friends..,

GAHH! More snow...ENOUGH already- GAHHH! Supposed to get another 6 inches today. Our part of Chicago has gotten 67 inches of snow this winter. We get all the lake effect stuff besides the regular snow, as we are not that far from it. Then we will get some rain and near 40, but then next week back to 18. It is getting OLD. I know those of you on the East Coast are getting slammed as well- some even more than here. We are ready for some green!

We should hear about Felix from the specialist this week.

Mom has been worried so much about The Minions this winter. Even though we have the little houses for them. During these colder days, we even leave the garage door open enough that they can squeeze in there. We have a heated water bowl too. Sadly, it seems we have probably lost 2 of them. Momma has not seen either of them for at least 3 weeks, and mostly they all come once or twice a day. There are a couple that may be a day or so in between, but never this long. Fritz was very friendly and momma was going to try & get him into PAWS for adoption. Bunny is the other one. He was shy but sweet. Momma thought he was a she at first, but the name Bunny just stuck. We hope that if something bad happened, that they went peacefully. That is the thing with caring for a colony. You get attached to them also. But life happens, and you can only do what you can do. Hopefully this is the LAST snow of the season, and it will start to seem like spring round here.


Zekie is my sweet Valentine!

Ohh my sweet Zekie sent me a beautiful Valentine! I have been floating all day. We missed being here on actual Valentine's Day because Momma & The Dad went to the camping & RV show, and they found a small camper that is perfect! The current pop-up is a 1978 Starcraft. A bit vintage! Yesterday, our human brother came here, and there was a family dinner with both human children, and they sat in "their" seats so Momma felt like it was looking back in time & she was so happy! Then topping it off was my beautiful Valentine! Today it is sunny, and the snow is starting to melt a bit. And the weatherman is saying Thursday will be in the 50s...huh? weird. Momma does not want it that warm, because then it means all the snow melts, and if the ground is still frozen, then the water can go in the basement....not fun. The basement repairs & a new driveway are on the list of must do this spring. Not fun stuff, but has to be done. Even thought they say things are staying open here, Momma copied things, and we are still forgin ahead with this being my week. Momma said she will take a serious look at the groups we are in, and only sty in the ones that are active & that she can spend time with. It looks cool seeing abunch listed, but in the long run, if you cannot participate, it is not fair to anyone. I willcertainly stay in the Snuggles group - we gave a bunch of blankies to the wonderful place that took Pearl in & found her a home. This is something momma wants to do more of. This week will also be some updates on The Minions (momma's feral colony) purrs to all & a special purr & wink for my Valentine!
