Out and About

Angle and Chuck, wrestling as kittens
Hope that you all had a terrific weekend!  I love this photo of Angel and Chucky when they were wee babes.  I included it here just because!

My family gathered together twice over the weekend: to celebrate my mother's 85th birthday on Friday, and a holiday meal on Sunday afternoon.  I was presented with the news article pictured below, by my brother who found it in his local newspaper.  Read it and see if you can figure out what the heck happened...I surely cannot!
"Man say he was attacked by cats, robbed"

Now hanging at my office desk
My brother also gifted me with this purple cat on a string; he said it came in a cereal box!  I'm guessing that it's from "The Secret Life Of Pets" movie.   

Sorry, N!  You got cut off...Aunt Vicky
is still working on her cell phone photo-taking skills

Lucky for me, my niece helped me with my iPhone and Snapchat.  I can tell that I am going to have some fun with this!

In addition, I've downloaded Instagram, and a Prisma app.  One can do all kinds of nifty things with photos!  Have my first audiobook from the library on my phone, and I listen to it in the car, and while out rambling around the neighborhood on walks (as if 30 minutes of walking every night will cancel out the HUGE amounts of calories I seem to be compelled to eat...(shrug)), and while in the bathtub! There is definitely a future for me and audiobooks (and ebooks, I'm sure), from the library.  Way cool!

As for Chucky, he's really up and down.  He is good one day, not so good the next.  We can tell when he's not feeling well, but we don't know when he's going to 'download', and it is NOT always in the litterbox.  Between hard poops and diarrhea, he's been drinking lots of water and not eating so much food.  My first inclination is to rush to the vet's office, but The Hubby has laid a restraining hand on my arm, telling me to slow down and give it a few days. If Chuck simply ate too much catgrass, then once it's through his system, he'll be okay. In fact, all of the cats stopped eating their usual meal portions in recent days.  Maybe it's due to the warmer temps?  One day at a time, one meal at a time.

  2. Well furst we wanna say dat furst foto is just purrecious. Second, dat man was dreamin'. He purrobably gambled away his rent and now needs an excuse fur da landlord. OMC Attacked by cats!!! Cats ain't dat stupid to be used by robbers. We're not so sure what you're talkin' 'bout, lessen ya' got one of those new smarty pants fones or somethin'. Ifin so, concats, mommy's learned she needs one of those but can't afford it. MOL And lastly, not so sure 'bout da steady wait and see fur this one. Ifin everypawdy's quit eatin', we would suggest ya' check into da noms and maybe switch. There might be somethin' wrong with it. It's quite unusual fur all da kitties to stop eatin' at once. 'Specially when trouble sign purrsent, ie: potty issues. We're sendin' purrayers.

    Luv ya'

  3. Oh, that picture is too cute! And yes, that's a very random story and perhaps a dream, like Dezi and Raena suggested. Sending hugs and purrs to Chucky.

  4. Goodness, that crime doesn't sound like much of a crime. A little suspicious I think!
    Lovely you had two visits with your family over the weekend. My Mum just had her 83rd a few days ago too.
    Love the photo in the bunny ears!
    I hope Chucky's tummy settles down.
    Take care.

  8. Oh, our mom was all SQUEE! with that baby pic! And we liked the Chuck-in-the-Box shot, too! We have to admit we didn't get the cat attack story--after all, we swear Caroline was here on that date.

    Chucky, please feel better. You know you're the honorary bro of us black boys. (And William, too!)

  12. Aw Angel and Chuck kitten pic is very cute!
    The cat attack story sounds weird. The man can be a bit delusional? But if this really happened, I hope they capture the suspects.
    Purrs to Chuck. I hope he gets better. xo
