cats everywhere!

After all the chores were done I pulled the truck into the barn to load up some hay for a friend. Once done I circled the truck to be certain all was clear and secure. I got growled at. I poked around a bit and located a cat glaring at me. She looked a lot like my cats, almost all gray, white socks, white chest, short fur in this case. I kept on looking because there's only one reason a cat will growl at you and not run. I found the OMG kittens. Brought them in, they now live in the bathroom in a laundry basket. I then rushed off to Longview, WA to get them kitty formula and a bottle. As I was trying to feed them my pager goes off, 'tis a car on fire. I abandoned them and went to do my duty. I got home and will now apparently spend the rest of the night feeding kittens. It could be so much worse, it's not clear that it could be much better.

What a night...

Background; Mark, one of the cats I serve, had been missing since Friday morning. I've spent hours wandering around calling his name :-(.

Class was rough last night, I didn't get the Princes put away at the station 'til 10pm, by the time I got in bed it was almost 11pm. It had been warm and the house was really toasty so I opened the window wide before settling in.

Around midnight a horrid yowling awakened me. I rush out to investigate, mostly naked but with shotgun and flashlight in hand. I found nothing so I returned to bed. I'd not seen Monique that evening but this isn't unusual. After the yowling, I had a nasty feeling so I settled into bed and tossed and tumbled 'til 4am when it was time to rise and shine.

I could feel 3 cats on the bed with me, but I didn't have the inclination (or the courage) to find out which they were. I turned the light on and to my astonishment found both Mark and Nini were there looking at me expectantly, I glanced back into the bedroom and Monique, Certosino, and Loquito were on the bed.

Once more I have 5 felines to serve, I hope your day started out as happily as mine did
