Well, another year of celebrations has passed for me. Momma cannot believe that I am 9 years old already. You would never know it, she tells me I am feisty, cranky, snarky & absoloutely adorable all at the same time. I wish to thank everyone for the birthday wishes, and also for the gotcha gifties. Things have been busy - our human girl came back from her temp job in Indiana, and brought a couple friends with, so we hosted a girl from Scotland, and a guy from Philly for almost a wekk, so we have been busy.
I had a great birthday - I got some rotisserie chicken...I LOVE it - my favorite. My gotcha day was good too. Momma can hardly beleive that it has been 9 years already. I pretty much rule the house as I am the princess around here. But that is ok. It is so funny, I know I have spoke of this before - The Dad was not a cat person before me. Not that he hated kitties or anything, just never had them. When I was fostered here, I was so little so it was 3 months before I could even get spayed. Well, Momma was already in love with me - He said "no you cannot keep the cat" well, we all see how that has panned out hmmm? I wore him down, and now each night I sit on the back of the couch behind his head & tap him until I get my ear rubs. He calls me his Chingie Girl....funny how a little kitten can make a big ol dude a mite mushy.... I do thank you all so much.
The end of next week shouls slow down some. Our girl will be leaving next week for a month in Malaysia. Momma also got wedding pics, so she can put one on our page so you can see!

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.
