Friday, November 8

Alaska is here on my desk--smack dab in front of the screen, looking at me like she has a job to do, besides make me mis-type! And Ernest is watching her from the floor.  He does a good job of keeping track where she is, afterall two cats snugged up makes for great warmth on these cooler days.

We have a new toy--a wobbly bird laser toy. It goes off by itself if there's no motion, only to turn back on when a cat moves close about it. The cats are loving it! Fun times for the cats!

We have a time change! The Day Sale tomorrow starts at 3:30 instead of 3:00. Lots of wonderful items! Please be patient, as we all know we can't control the lag time on ustream! I know we'll all be just fine--just have to be understanding that we're all doing our best! We need our mods for this event! Some are PM takers (Aunty Fi, Billy, Lovebugs and Edna--so these are the mods to contact by PM), some are Relay the Names, Remove Chat (remember--no chit-chat--only "bids" and if there's an error), one is the pause/unpause mod, one is a info copier and one keeps track of overall computer tech stuff. Wow--lots of teamwork!

Emily and Dennis are grand champion wrestlers! One rushes out around a corner and wham....right into the other one. Then it's reversed and the other one is on it's back. They sure do know how to have fun. 

Fiesto is such a handsome boy! We all just love him! Today is the day he gets to come out into the main area. I think he'll do just fine. I have a feeling he's going to liven up the place!

Right now we have a sea of grey, all wrapped up into one "blob"!  Little Hank, Hankster, Daisy and Mogo just happen to be here together, tussling in the office. These are the same ornery kittens at breakfast time that turn into 20 cats to cause mischief at breakfast!

Derecho is wearing his vest today. He was very wobbly this morning. I was afraid he would hurt his head. This seems to have calmed him. The cats have been at the windows in the Kabana Room--lots of birds using the feeders and providing much entertainment! 

Meowzer in sleepy mode!
