Monday Miscellaneous

The shelters were closed today due to Canadian "Easter Monday".  It was nice to take a short breather as it was a hugely busy adoption weekend for us. 

Our house was shown at 11:30 this morning and the same family came back today at 3:30 to see the house again!  It's always a good sign and I'm hopeful the end to this madness will come a little earlier than I expected.  The cats were understandably ticked at me loading them in carriers TWICE in one day!  I have the scratches to prove it.  :(

I found a cute picture of our cat "Willy" who seem delighted with the moving of our furniture "post-staging" because it produced a TON of lost cat toys from under the couches:

The stager left all the toys on top of my desk.  Willy looks a little buzzed from "expired" catnip.

This morning my own cats seemed extra excited to be out in our cat enclosure. They slithered low to the ground like they were stalking something.  I bolted to the window to make sure it wasn't another wayward chipmunk in the wrong place at the wrong time.  But I didn't find a chipmunk.  I found we have a NEW neighbour that I hadn't seen yet:
Later that morning, there was another white one - that guy was short haired.  That neighbour's window looks out on our cat den, so I'm sure they've been having a great time giving each other the stink eye. 

My son said, "OH?  You didn't know the new neighbours have cats?  I heard the Mom screaming at the kids, "DON'T LET THE CATS OUT, DAMMIT!'

I'm sort of sorry that I'm moving now.  We finally got a neighbour that likes cats! 

Tomorrow should be a very busy rescue day.  Lots going on.  I'm grateful I had the presence of mind to do the grocery shopping this morning. 

Maybe there's time for a 30 minute siesta??  Naaaaaaaw....

Wounder if they would like to by your outdoor cat fencing? Save you from having to move it.
