If they do, it's so quiet that I can't hear it. I think you need a nose and sinuses and stuff to snore.

I am playing referee today.

Yesterday, after a talk with TB, I decided (on my own but I got the feeling he agreed) to adopt a little kitten who had been abandoned in front of the vet's office. Violet loves cats (more than they love her) and I think TB and I were lonely too for another pet but didn't want a dog.

When I came home with the kitty, I was relieved to know I had read TB right as he scooped her out of my arms. It was his turn to name our latest pet and when he watched her for awhile he agreed with the nickname she got at the vet's office....Monkey! She climbs and flips and is so fast it really suits her.

The refereeing comes in with the fact that Violet wants to make friends, but is also very jealous of her and Monkey is too busy checking out her new home to want to be bothered with this big creature following her around. I am in my craft studio now because Violet is asleep on her bed here and Monkey is off somewhere exploring. Violet needs her rest for her pain and hips so I put the cat in the bathroom for time-outs. But right now they are both getting what they want/need!

I will post pictures of our new family member as soon as I learn how to use my new camera.

Sitting here using SO's iPad because my MacBook Pro is having its hard drive replaced. I wish I hadn't skipped that last backup!

Congrats on your new Monkey, LP!

Just got back from the pool with floaty thing and Kindle. No rugrats today! Unbelievable, since it's the first good pool day in a long time.

Good for you two. I know you will love the little fur ball and she will have a grand home. Enjoy.

Thanks so much CG

Yes, I was thinking too young too :(

I will find out more once I have seen my knee surgeon, I have an appointment on the 9th August, so not too long to go now

Thanks again for caring

I luv your cat and her name

If I were to have a cat I'd want one with a personality just like your lil Monkey. I'm not even a cat person. If it were to be, I'd swoop one up like her in a flash. We would be the same.

Will cat sit if you need one. She would have to promise not to teach me anything new.
