well sandy has come and gone. i spent mon and tues at home staying safe and dry. sandy brought swollen rivers, and downed trees but no power outages. i did park my car in the garage for the first time and paniced thinking one of the cats escaped during the storm but everyone is home and ok. there is not even much clan up at my house a few small branches and tons of leaves but that is all.

lost dog central

last night for the second time this month lost loose dogs have wandered up to our house. there were 2 didn't bark just wandered the driveway smelling our dogs. hubby went outside to see if they had id tags. both did. last time it was a lost dog hotline that called the missing owners. last night it was the owners themselves. they were extremely relieved that we found the dogs and called them. they had been searching for 6 hours and the dogs had decided to go for a nice long walk. they had gone about 6 miles from home. hubby and i waited in the drive until the owners arrived to get the dogs they were so happy and relieved that they were ok and safe. now they just had to get them home and pull off ticks and burrs. between stay cats and lost dogs it has been non stop lately.

the lone boy cat in a house full of female animals. i think hubby just wanted to up his numbers since he was the lone guy with all females. now he has a buddy another male who is surviving in a house full of women. other than locking leo up when everyone else eats he is fitting in fine no fights and lots of chasing an cat wrestling. he loves toys with a bell and has gained weight since his arrival. looks like he is a permenent part of the family. wecome to the zoo

oh my god how did i end up with 4 cats

OMG I am becoming the cat lady. somebody help me. hubby found a cat running around near his work. since work is right off the turnpike it is not a good place for a cat to be running around. he talked me into bringing him home until he is claimed or someone takes him. looks more like he is a permanant part of the family now. jack ignores him no suprise there, winnie loves him and follows him around, tigger and chickie were not happy at first but he is so laid back he knows chickie rules the house and tigger is the aloof one. gracie just ignores him. now if we can just convince him he no longer needs to eat any and all food he sees we will be happy. in other news, well there isn't much. we have been trying for a baby but no luck and last month we didn't even try since we were both feeling horrible with a wicked cold. my work is the same. still looking for another job and hoping when the election is over things will get better. the fall/ thanksgiving/ christmas baking frenzy has begun again. this year i am hoping i actually have some help. this may happen since my niece loves to bake and her mom now lives 5 minutes from me. so M is close by every other weekend and wants to come help.
