Catching Up



It is me, Only, today. Sorry we have been AWOL since our last post in May.  The beans have been on the road, traveling - first time they have gone anywhere together in ten years. In May it was a short trip to Highlands, NC  to try out the pet sitter, then it was a wedding in VA near DC. A family thing.  And then Mom headed out to Charleston SC to visit a work friend who moved down there last year.

 Another trip is coming up - to visit Mr. Kitty's humans.  His Dad B. would love it if we snuck him in the luggage but no can do. B had a liver transplant last year and now needs a kidney transplant.  Mom's oldest friend D. is giving her kidney to her husband B.  They have been thru more than most people can cope with over this past year.  That was why they could not keep Mr Kitty if you remember.  No pets allowed now after an organ transplant. The surgery is scheduled for July so Mom may go back up to help them out.

Cats always find Mom like this one did in Charleston.  He was the Inn cat.

The beans  found a great pet sitter and we like her.  She is nice and quiet and makes sure we all get our meds and lots of pets.  She grew up on a farm and has a dog and cat herself.  We will be in good hands but it may be the start of some traveling urges for the beans.  Uh oh.

Mr Kitty zonked out on  the porch.

Nothing new with us cats.  Mr. Kitty is doing fine on his thyroid meds and so is Sweetpea finally.  Snowball is holding his own with his megacolon - no issues so far.  It has been very hot lately so we are enjoying the AC in the house and the cat house cats all have fans.  Their inside room is cool like a basement on account of being built into the hillside.  Mr. Kitty juts loves to nap out on the porch in the heat - funny guy.

Mom turkey and poults - see how mom is holding her leg up?

We have a mom turkey with a bum leg who has been visiting our bird feeder.  The beans will make sure she has food and water while they are away.  The turkey had six babies but only two are left.  They are getting big, can fly a little and are starting to look like turkeys and not just fluff balls.

Mrs Raccoon

A cute raccoon has been stopping by to feed too.  Mom seems to think she may have little ones in the woods but so far no sign of them.  No bear sightings but one did bend our bird feeder pole down to the ground.  We told the pet sitter to watch out.  She will not put food out at night.

That is it for us.  After the next trip, the humans should be home for the summer and hopefully will get to blogging again.  (Unless Mom has to go back to help out Mr. Kitty's folks.) Mom does post on Facebook and on Instagram so look for us there. We miss our blog buddies and hope y'all are doing good.  With luck we will visit you all in about a week.

I bet Mr. Kitty's human really misses him. :-(

It's terrific to read that everyone is doing well right now. Wonderful, we hope that continues!

Also, a good pet sitter is worth her/his weight in gold! We're glad you've found one and that your beans can do some travelling, start enjoying themselves again.

Purrs and purrayers for Mr. Kitty's dad, B.

Sending purrs to Mr. Kitty's former people, and it's great that he's found a really good snoozing spot. I luck out with the fact that The Hubby never goes anywhere, so he's a built-in cat sitter!

It's so good to hear that everyone's doing well! And it's nice that you'll get to visit Mr. Kitty's humans. They must miss him very much, but at least he's with someone where they can get frequent updates and they can rest easy that he's part of a wonderful family.

The Island Cats said...

Glad to hear from you guys and that all is well. We're sure your mom will take lots of pictures of Mister Kitty to show former humans.

Only, thanks for catching us up on stuff. It sounds like things are going well! :)

Mr Kitty looks very happy resting in the sunshine and we hope he will be OK on his thyroid medications while you are away on a well earned break.
