Catching Up!


I am getting back to my blog a little bit at a time, so I will post on Mondays and Fridays for a few weeks. Mom L and I sure have missed all my pals. I am even getting her to help me visit some of you but really hit and miss. Lots has been going on since I last posted on a regular basis. Nothing bad mind you, just a lot of stuff to do. I hoped I would be back after the July 4 US holiday but that just didn’t happen.

The boxes are finally ALL gone!

So I have been writin’ down some ideas for my next few blog posts and for sure I am gonna include several posts with Tips to Move Two Cats Successfully!!  Don’t miss these posts! After all, this was my third move and TKS’ second all within the last five years! I think I have some expert tips to share.

But we are done with that! Mom L and Dad P made sure this was the last move for all of us.

We home, right Dad P? I can feel it in my heart.

We have lots to share. Mom L and Dad P have been meeting lots of the neighbors on our street and even some in old town where we live. I wasn’t so sure I approved of the one photo Mom L showed me of one of our new old town neighbors, but hey—she was pretty darn cute!

HI!! My name is Marni!!! I’m only four months old! Wanna pet me??

Sorry for that out of focus photo but that pup wasn’t gonna sit still for Mom L’s slow reflexes!! MOL!!

I promise I’ll be sharing some of the photos of our move and how I inspected our new home with TKS right on my “six”! You will see what I mean next week.

Let me share one more photo that pretty much proves Mom L and Dad P selected an almost purrfect home for the four of us. This is the sunset the first night we stayed in our new home. And we are on river water that feeds our small marina area so we have lots of breezes and we can watch the tide come in and go out. Yes, we have tides on this water ‘cuz we are on the delta of the rivers that feed into San Francisco Bay. Isn’t life interesting?

Welcome home Savannah, Sage and Mom L and Dad P

Never had such sunsets before. See you this Friday for Friday Memes!



Friday Memes Are Coming Back!


Hey guys!! I hope someone out there is still wait’in around to see if I make a come back. Well, this may not be long term—BUT—here are your Friday Memes!!

Ummm—hang on a sec’—let me explain. Ahem…koff, kofff…as best I can. You see our humans used lots of different boxes to make this move. Some were from stores that sell stuff that is…well…”gotta be like 21 human years old ” for consumption. But truly, they just used the “empty” box. Mom L and Dad P had nothin’ to do with the “empty’in”.

I guess you can tell by the satisfied look on my face—I know this is our forever home as a human and fur family. This is MY OUR HOME!

Please be sure to check in on Mom L’s Face Meow page for photos of our home. For some stoopid reason Face Meow won’t allow her to post to MY PAGE! Which of course has way more followers—just sayin’

Thanks for stopping by. Mom L promises I can visit my pals starting in August. Earlier if some stuff with this move happens faster. The humans have had some physical injuries that kind’a messed up with some of the timeline for completing this last move.

Hang in there and I purromise to come back stronger and able to keep up with visiting my blogging pals.


Moving: Experienced Cats Talk Part II


Hey, hey, hey my pals! I have decided to let all of you in on some of the closely kept secrets I have about how cats help with packing and moving. You already saw my little “teaser” post last week about “How Experienced Cats Move“. Now I am making that a little mini-series. I’ll post about what TKS and I are doing to help Mom L and Dad P in this final move for all of us. I have moved three times since arriving at my forever castle just a short five years ago and this is TKS’ second move in three years.

This is TKS’ turn at showing off her growing expertise in packing.

Hello Pals. This lesson is about insuring box size fits intended contents.

“Now there is a really important challenge every cat must face. WILL THE INTENDED CONTENTS FIT INTO THE INTENDED BOX??

Here you see me testing out a very colorful hand woven rug from master weavers in Mexico. I am making sure it is firmly smooshed—yes, “smooshed” is indeed a technical cat packing term. I am also making sure that there will be token cat furs on this item before it is rehung over our master bedroom bed. Never let the humans forget that we rule our homes.”

Ok Dad P. You can take it from here. It is properly smooshed

“Trust me my pals, humans simply cannot do this properly nor successfully without our brilliant input. Making sure contents will fit is a skill set only we cats possess. We are after all, “box masters”.

Ahhh—I see you want this art placed into the brown box.

“Sigh—you would think that with all their tape measures, rulers and whatnot that humans can figure out if the box is a proper fit for what they want to put in it. Slap my paw to my forehead and call me a crazy cat!! Have they never figured out how to measure this??!!”

Get. In. The. Box.!!!

“Seriously pals, humans never ever get into the very box they want “said” items to be placed. They simply assume the items will fit. I know, I know—such a laughable concept!!

I, TKS, did all the proper measuring techniques and determined that indeed the intended art items were a perfect match for the intended box. Without me, I do not know how Mom L and Dad P would have been able to accomplish this very technical part of moving effectively.

Hope you learned something from my experience. I am sure HRH Savannah will have more to share in our next post.”

Please let TKS know in comments if this moving technique is helpful—even if you are not ever gonna move—do her insights help you foresee the problems “should” you move??
