Hello? Anybody home? Or is everyone feeling as laid back as Red Kitty?
We're back in our summer camper mode here, working at the campground. Yep, the old camping kitties meme......
Man this camper seems small compared to our new digs in town, but with new scratching posts in every possible corner, with all the windows open, with a big cozy bed to lounge on, I guess everyone is doing as well as possible. I'd be so happy if this group of felines could pitch in and help me some as there's too much work to do here....but at least I have them to keep me warm at night. You see, it's been around 34F the past couple of nights--forget Three Dog Night--I've got a Three Cat Night......no doubt we'll be complaining about the heat any day now....
So Red Kitty wants to know, wassup with all the other red kitties out there???

Red Kitty is 11 years old! Nominally, I celebrate on January 1, but in fact, it's a mystery when he was really born. He wandered into our lives in July: just waltzed onto our tiny farm in Iowa, and immediately caused me and my 3 stepdaughters to fall head over heels in love. A trip to our vet gave us a guestimate of his age, got him the health seal of approval, got him "snipped" and after that, into our household (& hearts) he moved for good.
When my marriage ended a year later, Red moved to Illinois with me. We've been through a lot together the past 11 years!
Mariah joined Red and me in December, when Red was about to turn 2. She was the size of a teacup and the way Red carried on-hissing and spitting at the sight of her-you'd have thought she was very threatening.
Apparently, they came to some kind of agreement in due time.
And they have been (mostly) best buddies ever since.
So some days, we all miss our old farm house-especially the old porch-sunroom-entry, where the
critters loved to hang out. But slowly, we are beginning to adjust to the new digs. All the critters think it's pretty good--but I don't think it's nearly camera ready yet--so I dug into the archives in order to post this.
Oh Red, sometimes your poses can be so unattractive....
But anyways....Happy Birthday my big Red Love!
Happy New Year and Best Wishes for a Wonderful 2013!
