Stormy Weather

We had lots and lots of boomers and storms for the past few days. Even a few tornados but not near our house. Close as they got was maybe 20-25 miles away. Lots of purrs to those who had damage to their homes. Mum was happy it stayed away, then she didn't have to round us up into the PTU's and go to the dungeon to be safe.

So we are all tired. The weather warning radio wakes us all up, but then we can be safe if we need to get to a safe place.
Thank you for your comments on my mouse hunting skills. I have caught them myself when they slip past mum's collection of traps. But hey, I can be of service and bring them up to mum when they get caught. I don't eat them, yeck! Mum put it outside in the metal monster room still in the trap. Then the next morning, knowing it was really deaded, she released it and put it into the flower bed in front. Says it can fertilze the ground.

I will see if I can get Ducky trained, it may take a while. Mum reminds me that when I first got here I was more likely to play with the real live mousies than to deaded them.
This is a picture of a stained glass thing that was part of a recent art show at her library, it was the only work of art that had a cat in it.

Mum is starting to bring boxes of stuff from Grampie's old place. Mum says it was boxes of knicknacks and music CD's and cassettes. She took tonight off from that, says Uncle Flip may be here soon to help with the furniture.

Hi Derby! We are glad you are safe! We had the bad weather here too - the tornado got closer to us but still didn't hit us (it was like 3 miles away). I hope you are having nicer weather up there today!

And you are a very good mouser - we bet you will be great at teaching Ducky how to do it.

Napping is the very best thing to restore your nervous ystem after all that scary booming! Sleep well!
