Thursday in the Garden

 Karen Jo:  Sorry I haven't blogged in so long.  First there was getting out of my funk, then I got a sinus infection, which is almost cleared up, then I went to a three day conference and came back with a badly upset tummy, which I am still recovering from.  We are not joining the Feline Gardeners, as I seldom have anything in the garden worth photographing.  After the gophers took over, I just let the garden go wild.  Above the lace vines are in full bloom, much to the delight of the bees.
 We got more rain this year than last and I had a bumper crop of weeds, but this one has pretty flowers.
 It was also a bumper year for toadstools.  I had some bigger ones, but didn't get out to photograph them.
 The phlox are past their prime, but still pretty.
 Spyro:  I have reclaimed my title as the kitty who can climb/jump the highest.  I don't really like it up here, but I had to do it at least once.  It did get a little embarrassing.  I couldn't get down again.  I walked to the other side of the drapes and Mom climbed up and go me down.
 Oja:  I still spend most of my time in the computer room, but I am coming out more now.  I made friends with Horus and now I don't feel so outnumbered by icky mancats.  I have two friends now and that makes me feel better about roaming around the house.
 Rocio:  Another reason Oja feels safer about roaming around the house is that I have stopped annoying her.  For some reason, I now get hissy with Horus and Bambino sometimes when they want to play with me.  I took a serious claws-out swipe at Horus the other day and Mom broke it up.  He had me cornered under the computer desk and I didn't like it.

Karen Jo:  I have no idea what brought this on.  Rocio was always ready to play with any cat who wanted to.  He hasn't hissed at Bambino since a week after Bambino moved in, until just the last few days.  He isn't acting like he doesn't feel good.  He is eating and drinking and running around and playing with toys.  He is going to the vet in about a week and a half for his rabies booster, so I'll ask her about it.
 Bambino:  I wish I knew why Rocio got all hissy with me the last time I pounced him.  I just wanted to play.  Luckily Spyro will still play with me and Horus will play chase with me.  It's fly season and I am having no end of fun chasing them.

Horus:  I escaped today and met the woofie from next door.  She is a minpin and I am bigger than she is.  We sniffed each other over without any hissing or barking.  Then Mom caught up with me and I had to go back inside.  See my tiger paw?

It looks like you all have a busy life and are enjoying it very much. Kitties don't mind about weeds.

Horus we love your tiger paw and think you were very brave being nice and polite to the little dog.

Karen Jo we are sending you invigorating paw pats and purrs

We hope Karen Jo is feeling 100% again very soon! Purrs to her.

We think she has her own paws full with you all. LOL.


Glad to see you back. Yes, I lost Abby on August 12th, it has been a very bleak month for me. She is my heart and soul kitty and I am very sad without her. I am glad August is about over as I think this has been just about the worst entire month of my life. Sounds melodramatic to say that but that is how it feels. Hope Rocio gets a good Vet report.
