An Exciting Week

We've had an exciting week.  First, we have new neighbours.  Target and Guido watched with horror as they revealed a large dog.  A Doberman.  Guido snuck back into the house when he saw it, but Target sat on the roof of the Beetle and gave it hard stares. It worked, because the dog appears to be friendly and quiet.

Then our friend Happy from across the street managed to open a window and go on walkabout. He's an indoor cat so we were all worried about him.  We all searched the streets, looking for him.  An agonising 16 hours later, he came home, safe and sound. Guido and Target had Feline Greenies to celebrate.

Then our taps ran dry.  We haven't figured out yet precisely why, but it seems a rogue factory up country messed up the rivers. The cats were fine, but the humans a bit whiffy.

After three days, our taps began to run again, but it also rained.  Actually, it poured. Our street flooded, our doormat floated away, and we were a half centimeter away from having a flood in the living room. Guido and Target sat on the sofa, watching the rising water cover the garden and run up to the house. We were all relieved when the rain stopped just in time.

Today everything seems to be all right.  The cats are sitting on the roof of the Beetle, watching out for dogs, storms, and floods. They're also preening quietly because our neighbours next door and across the road keep walking past and saying, "Hello, sayangs!  Aren't you handsome cats?"

Yeah, they are!  And we're all hoping we have a nice, quiet week.

What a week. I do not think I would like a big dog. I like to chase little ones...

We had pouring rain yesterday, too. I hope it'll be sunny today. I wish you a nice quiet week!

OH MY! A DOGGIE and of the scary kind!

You have all had a very hard time. I hope more normal times are there now and that the dog will remain polite but boys, please don't go there.

That was quite a week! Thankfully all ended well, and with some Greenies too! Glad the big dog was friendly, that could have been a real nightmare (although my mom had a kitty that chased German Shephards, but she was a tortie.)

We know it has been some time but we did want to tell you how very much we appreciate all the kinds words of compassion you left us for over the loss of our dearly beloved Abby. We are humbled by all the support and love we received and there is no way we can tell you how much it meant to us.

Wow that's a lot of rain. We're glad that everything worked out well for you. We'd have been very worried.
