Mom has left us....ok, only for the weekend, but that isn't the point!!!

Anyhow, she is off to see some of our blogging friends at BarkWorld.  We will tell you all about it when she gets back - she left the laptop at home (though if you follow us on facebook or twitter we bet you will get pictures while she is there).

She is taking one of the foster kittens: either Stoli or Sangria (at the time of typing, she hadn't made up her mind yet).  Check out her packing -
 kitten stuff

mom stuff

other stuff (cards, snacks, etc)

It remains to be seen what she ends up forgetting. She made a list before packing - and there was another list stuck to the cabinet for when she was on her way out the door. We figure so long as she has the basics, she should be ok. MOL

Opt to Adopt - Cassidy

We know we have had her here before, but wanted to get her out there again. She had been in one of the local Petco stores. However, her stress level was going up....she could be out if she wanted but would disappear to the back of the store.

Mom picked her up on Saturday and brought her back here. She didn't like it much but was ok all things considered.

After talking to the head of the rescue, it was decided to send her out to a Petsmart location. We know what you are thinking - what's the difference?? The biggest difference is that Cass can't get out of the room with the adoption cages - and people can't be sticking their fingers in to annoy her. Win-win.

getting ready to leave (with the kitten inspection being done)

complaining about the move (just kidding)

All set up and checking out her new apartment. She would be best in a quiet home that is going to give her time to adjust...she did ok here overnight - especially since we didn't have a place to separate her. She was nervous, but by Sunday morning was out and about. She did some name calling with the boys but otherwise seemed fine with everything. She is 2 years old, spayed and up to date on shots.

weekend update

Mom spent Saturday working around here: laundry, the sucky monster, dishes, etc....and running errands.

One of those errands was - a new flashy box. For Cods sake...we are so screwed. Mom said the old one wasn't working like it should so she took some advise from some other bloggers and went to a local camera shop and tried out a few. She ended up with a Nikon S9700. She is still figuring out the thing, but did say the one thing was a much faster shutter speed. Great....

Thankful Thursday

First and foremost, THANK YOU for being our friends and being so wonderful over the last weeks. It is never easy to lose a family member....your support and purrs and wishes have been wonderful and we truly appreciate it more than you will ever know.

Also, you may notice a new header - we were pleasantly surprised to get an email from Miss Ann at Zoolatry with a new header just for us. THANK YOU for thinking of us....we love it.

Saturday mom spent the day at an art retreat given by BZ TAT. Some of you will know her from Blog Paws conventions where she does artwork. She lives a couple of hours from us and when she put up the notice earlier this fall, mom signed up. Bearing in mind that mom has almost no artistic sense... MOL  Anyhow, with everything that has been going on, mom wasn't sure that she wanted to go, but decided she needed to get out of the house. She had sent in a picture of Maestro. Here is the series as she went along as well as the final picture. We were impressed.....

BZ TAT said that being artistic is all a state of mind....we all have the ability, we just need to tap into it. We think mom did a great job. The painting is now hanging on our "cat" wall in the entry to the condo.
