A Long Overdue Update

You will have to excuse Hilda as she's been swamped with all kinds of work. One of her biggest projects has been helping a new member of the household get settled in and adapt to her new family.

Since Hilda's last entry we've taken in another Maine Coon Cat named Charlotte.

Charlotte's story is a sad one, she being abandoned by her family when the bank foreclosed on their home. Charlotte wasn't the only animal abandoned at the house, there also being two dogs and two horses left behind. It wasn't until a friend of ours, a real estate agent out towards the New Hampshire seacoast, was hired by the bank to sell the home. She found Charlotte when she went into the house to prepare it for listing. Our friend doesn't know how long she and the others were left alone.

It's been a long (and still ongoing) process to re-socialize Charlotte. We'll keep you up to date on her progress.

Semi-regular posting will start again in the very near future.

I've Been Very Busy

Yes, I know I haven't been posting anything. It isn't that I don't want to. It's just been that I've been very busy!

You have no idea the amount of work it takes to keep a household running. Not that it's really my job, but Ma and Pa have been really busy, too, so that's left me to take care of everything. If it weren't for the big round-headed cat helping out I wouldn't have gotten nearly as much done.

Bagheera's been no help, laying about as if he were a king or something. He's always saying he has a tough time getting in his usual 20 hours of nap time every day, but I think he's just lazy.

The kids are still too busy being kids. Henry and Pip run around playing "Can't Catch Me" or batting around the squeaky mouses or catnip squirrels. Occasionally they'll have a nap attack, sleeping just long enough to recharge themselves so they can start all over again.

Minnie tries to help, but like me, she's too little to do any of the heavy work. She's a dainty lady, just like me, but with less luxurious fur.

And Cole helps sometimes, but he's easily distracted. (Personally I think he suffers from FADD - Feline Attention Deficit Disorder.)

I promise to try to write more often, but right now I've got to go inspect the litter boxes since Pa cleaned them just a little while ago. He usually does a pretty good job, but it never hurts to check and see if he missed anything.

It's Cozy Here!

It's still winter outside, something that bugs Bagheera to no end. He doesn't want to believe if it's winter at the front door it will also be winter at the back door. He's so stubborn!

Me, I have no problems with winter. It's not like I want to go outside anyways. It's too cold and my fur might get all dirty to the point where I'll have to spend a lot of time cleaning myself, even with the help of Ma and Pa brushing me. So I'd rather stay inside where it's nice and warm. In fact, my favorite place is in front of the big noisy black thing with fire in it because it's so warm. I even have my own pad to rest on!

Helping Out Around The House

As I explained earlier, my posting has been far too sporadic because Ma and Pa have been so busy. So to speed things up, I decided I'd help them with some of the things they have to do that takes up so much paying bills.

“Here's the envelopes!”

“Where's the stamps?”

Favorite Places

Well, it's 'bout time! I've had all these things I wanted to tell you, but I had to wait because Ma and Pa were busy doing other stuff. (I can't type very well 'cuz I don't have thumbs.)

Usually I tell Pa or Ma what I want to say and they type it for me. But sometimes they're too busy and I try to do it myself. I'm not very good and I don't spell very well.

There's lot's of things to tell, like my favorite places in the house. Right now I like to nap in front of the fireplace. It's very warm! It's even better when I can nap on one of the chairs set near the fireplace. Sometime Pa blocks the heat when he puts more wood into the fire 'cuz he's so big, but it keeps the fire nice and warm.

There are other favorite places I like to go, too. One of my other favorite places is something called 'the penthouse'. It's really nice and because it's so high I can see everything in the kitchen, living room, and dining room. Next time I'll have to show you pictures.
