One of these days I'm going to be killed by stepping on a cat...I haven't hit the floor yet, but it's been close. Latté is getting rather nasty about it being time for bed...I guess I better git and turn myself into a cat bed.

i hear ya, pf.

the latest addition to our family, samuel a. yoder, a parking lot/garbage hopper stray we brought home from amish country last fall (hence his name) is under foot whenever it's feeding or belly rubbing time.

he's either gonna get crushed one day, or i'm gonna hit the deck. hard.

Is there anything more terrifying that the screech a stepped on cat can make? Keeps your heart going. And that screech can make you feel so guilty.

Latté usually catches me in the narrow hallway, in the dark...lots of sharp edges to hit, she blends right into the dark carpet. So she's either goin to trip me or I will be wearing her as a slipper...

Poor Smudge has a kink in her tail from being stepped on.

Yesterday was a Patron day at work...no good pictures, though! He was wheezy and so I was trying to check out his breathing with a stethoscope, all I could get was his heart sounds. So fast I couldn't even count them. His mom is taking him to the vet this morning, he's got me worried.

Poor Patron. He is so small. Do let us know what the vet says. And one for Patron.

Watched the Chew today; Stephanie March made a really good looking margarita and I'm not even particularly fond of the drink. Maybe it's gonna be one of "those" days?

Except that when Himself first stepped on kitty she didn't make a sound! THAT is unusual. That and her wimpering little cries after that lasted a few minutes that got me really scared.

Little BitsyBoo is fine today but I think she learned her lesson: as soon as Himself started to move around today she slapped herself against the family room baseboard behind the chair. No one's getting to her there!

LOL! Patron also means "Boss" and his Mom really likes Patrón, that's how he got his name. Patron has been King of the office for almost 2 years and he weighs 3 pounds.
