Cooler weather

The a/c has been off for a while now, and no need for the furnace yet. I guess Grace is OK with snuggling up to her pillow ...

... but Audace and Ruse are moving toward their wintertime mode of snoozing -- with, on, and smack up next to each other!

Princess's Special Day!

I've posted before about this little one -- Princess Meow Meow! Such a little beauty! Anyway, today is her lady-garden-ectomy -- actually it's over, and we'll be going to pick her up after 4 pm this afternoon. She will then spend the next week or so in grandbean Austen's room. Now we'll find out if she can be an indoor kitty, an indoor/outdoor kitty, or solely an outdoor kitty. It'll be her call. She's had complete freedom up to now, and I'll bet she won't give that up. We'll see.

Anyway, isn't she pretty? And lots of fun ... and very vocal!

She likes to claim the car in the garage as her own territory!

And she likes to explore everything else that's in the garage, too, including whatever's up in the rafters!

Grace - on a cleaning binge!

Ruse's fur looked pretty funny the other day after he and Grace had been snoozing together. Apparently, Grace decided to give about a 1" x 4" patch of Ruse's fur a thorough cleaning. It's quite obvious when you see that little patch of fur standing straight up, while the rest of his fur is smooth in the normal direction!

See the little patch of fur standing straight up!

Then Grace came back and decided to work on him in other spots. Her head was moving so fast as she cleaned his neck, the camera lens couldn't keep up! She's just a blur!!

Ruse doesn't seem to mind, though! Just lets his mommy clean him whenever and wherever she pleases!

I've posted about Grigio before (fka Garage Kitty). He's in the first three photos below, showing off the fact that he's an inside kitty now, and he doesn't have to associate with anyone outside anymore!! My grandbeans call him the guardian of the shoe pile!

Now a new kitty has adopted my grandbeans' back yard. They have been calling her Princess Meow Meow! She's about 1½ years old, according to the v-e-t, and she's very zippy and playful. It's hard to get photos of her because she's always on the move. These aren't very good photos, but they'll do for now. She is very tiny (under 9#), and with her unusually floofy tail for a shorthaired cat, she reminds us of a squirrel sometimes!

I know, I know! I need to get some new pix posted here!

Today, Austen and I took Audace and Ruse to the v-e-t (Grace went in June) for their vaccinations. Since they're indoors all the time, I don't worry if a year (or even a year and a half) slips by between trips for shots! This morning, though, we also took along the little guest who has adopted Austen's back yard! I need to get some photos of her, too. They are calling her Princess Meow Meow, but I'm sure that'll get shortened at some point.

Photos will be up soon ... I promise!!
