    Ah, the Look. Wish I could perfect it like Mona. I think I came close this week with all those unruly children I had to deal with.
    Think I'll wear my Mona shirt today.

    Re: For animal lovers

    FireStorm, you have a heart full of sympathy coming your way. I'm so sorry for your loss. It's very hard to adjust to life without that special furry friend who brought so much joy to your household.

    An update on the little cat formally known as "Ginger". The name Ginger didn't fit her...as in walks "gingerly". She's a little bulldozer. No matter what I named her, "Claire" still kept wanting to come out of my mouth. "Here Cl-Emily...here Cl-etc. etc. etc.". Since I couldn't seem to drop the "Cl" sound, I decided to name her Chloe. I called her Clairey a few times, but she's Chloe and only Chloe now. She's beautiful, sweet, rambunctious, and just a complete and total delight.

    She's more like a goat than a cat, in that she wants to eat anything she finds...scraps of paper, paper clips, lint, dust bunnies...you name it, she'll try to eat it. My apartment has never been so clean since Chole moved in. For the first month, what I mostly said was "what are you eating??!!!". She also loves water. She wants to get in the shower, or hang by the edge of the sink when I do dishes. I've never seen cat behavior like hers before. I call her "mama's little weirdo"...she just calls me "weirdo". We love each other big time.

    lopevian- How WONDERFUL for you and Chloe! I had a Tabby years ago and that girl loved to swim in the tub, sleep in the sink and eat cheese.

    Thanks dagwood! I'm used to cats shredding paper, not eating it.

    Glad to know Chloe has company! I plug the sink, and let the water run very slowly so she can play with the water. Then, I'll use the water to water the plants. Once a week, she's in a state of nirvana.

    Firestorm, my heart is with you.


    lopevian , my Chloe Elizabeth regularly dines on Kleenex. My Abigail Michelle regularly dined on toilet tissue. Nothing worse than trying to use toilet tissue with kitty's teeth holes all in it.

    Firestorm: My sincerest condolences on the loss of your beloved kitty!
    I have told my Snowflake to find Mona and the others over at Rainbow Bridge to look for her and give her a sweet welcoming hug! Wow. Sixteen years is very good for a kitty. I lost my Snowy at 14 but she had years of heart problems. I miss her everyday. That will never change. I'm sure that you will find in time, that your memories of your dear kitty bring you smiles rather than tears.

    roseskid: My goodness! What beautiful photos of your hummingbird and baby! Did you have to set your camera on super duper fast speed in order to catch those shots?

    My Lexi aka Peanut aka Holy Terror, managed to chew off her lovely kitty charm around her neck. I have looked but haven't found it. I hope she didn't swallow it. I cleaned out the litter box a few times already.

    prhoshay! You've got a kitty named Chloe, too! We'll have to compare notes.
