Koko and Jean Claude really enjoy their time outdoors at CCL’s new house. Unfortunately Koko really wants to explore the neighborhood and has found several escape routes. CCL has attempted to block the free spaces in her backyard with plastic containers and has installed a warning system (the orange plastic container at the top of the fence). No matter. Yesterday afternoon, Koko managed to escape to her nextdoor neighbors yard and quietly returned when she was ready.

New Spaces

Posted on

We are near the end of February. Already my allergies are creeping up and I am seeing spring and summer shoes on the web. Before you know it, it will be time to clean off the outdoor furniture and set up outside seating areas. Grace, the tabby, has already started making new spaces. A few weeks ago as I emptied shopping bags, Grace claimed them and then dragged her favorite mouse toy to the place where she gathered the bags. Yes, she now has a play station in the middle of the living room floor.

Thanksgiving Blessings

Posted on

As we approach Thanksgiving it is a time to remember the many blessings we receive throughout the year. Time with family is always wonderful and we look forward to sharing memories and good food. We also start preparing for the Christmas season. Grace always stakes out the space under the Christmas tree as soon as it goes up, whether it’s decorated or not. Blessings and peace to you and yours this holiday season.
