- Mom finally got our Secret Paws package ready to mail tomorrow.
- Mom finally got our t-shirt to Baby Basu ready to mail tomorrow. We are really late with this and Baby Basu has already been born! You can read about him here.
- Mom did laundry.
- Mom made German potato salad.
- Mom worked on Christmas cards.
Do you see a pattern there? If I had not been able to snoopervise the wrapping and some of the laundry I would not have done anything at all with Mom today! It is a good thing my Daddy was here. He did a lot of things too but almost all of them included me. He even took me outside and let me check out the trees and the bird feeder and the neighbor's home. He even carried me around in the house and gave me lots of stinky goodness and helped me forget Mom was ignoring me.
So this is one of the things I did while I waited for Mom to remember I am here:

OK, almost wordless. These are cranes flying into Bitter Lake National Wildlife Refuge last Sunday. Bitter Lake is just outside of Roswell so we can watch the cranes flying over our house on their way in. There are thousands of them in the air, usually between 4 and 5 in the afternoon.

WARNING: If any of you kittehs are easily scared now might be a good time to turn away from what you are about to see.
My Daddy goes hunting for feral pigs in the Lincoln National Forest a lot. Mostly he just shoots stumps for target practice and he always takes his clicky flashy box along with his bow and arrows. This past summer he
deserted us went hunting and left us all alone at home while Mom was gone in New Yuck. (Mom says I have to tell you that it was only two days and we had someone to take care of us while they were both gone. It is not the same.)
Anyway my Daddy saw this fawn (what a baby deer is called). Because I do not know her real name I will call her Fala.
My Daddy almost stepped on Fala because she was lying so still and being very quiet. He told me that Fala did not move at all while he was nearby so he was able to take a lot of pictures. I think her Mama wanted to go chat with the other Mama deer so she told Fala to stay there and wait. Fala does not look all that vishus to me.

So today I decided to help her make the bed to keep her from falling asleep on it before she finished the job. Do you think the bed is all put back together yet? If you say NO you are right! Mom says I am the reason she stopped is she had to run to the medicine cabinet for something to put on her finger. She has asked me to give you all a new rule:
You will not draw blood when you help make the bed.
Who knew? I will probably forget this rule by next week and I do not expect anyone else to remember it either. Now I need to go take a nap on the nicely not-made bed.

This picture does not have anything to do with Matt or his birthday. It is one of my baby pictures for your viewing pleasure. (I am not quite this small now.)

Our beautiful Raisin a'Ruckus does not live with us any more. We miss her but she had to go live with someone else.
Ruckus moved in with us when she was very young ~ just 4 weeks old. She came through our back fence and followed my Daddy up to the house even though she could not walk more than a couple of steps without wobbling. Mom and my Daddy could not find her kitty mom and they were not willing to leave Ruckus outside on her own with all the skunks who lived in the area. So ~ we had a new baby.
Two years later Ruckus has found a new home. I do not want to go into details of why and how it happened but it was definitely something she chose. She left us in a PTU so we know she was safe but we do not know exactly where she ended up living. We were told that as soon as she was released she climbed onto the shoulder of the man who had her and started purring, which she never did even once for Mom or my Daddy in the 2 years she lived with us. Mom thinks that we were just a way station for Ruckus and that she was using us until she knew there was someone else who would provide her real forever home.
Goodbye Raisin a'Ruckus. We hope you are very happy for a very long time.
