Snowed big time...

Snowed big time - for us anyway.  Of course everyone here in south Louisiana went crazy, went outside, built snowmen took a zillion photos, and all at 3AM in the morning.

My son texted my wife at 3 and then she woke up my grandaughter who was staying with us then she woke me up and we all had to go see. The snow was pretty and it was all lit up  from area lights plus the moon. They had to go take a lot of pictures, play a bit and I - the old gizzer - went back to bed. I've seen this before but my granddaughter had not.

Ffinally they came in and went  back to sleep. By 7AM it was still snowing and they got to really go play in it when they could really see it. My granddaughter's gloves kept getting wet and her fingers kept getting "frozen" so she kept coming in to warm them up. In and out, in and out, in an out, she and my wife went on to around 9 or so.

At that point they finally had enough and came in to really warm up, eat breakfast and thaw out. We saw photos of the whole area on the local TV station flooded with pictures of snowmen and snow photos of houses, kids, roads, everything all covered in white. It was pretty but by noon it was all beginning to melt away.

Friday-Sat night it got down to below freezing but no moisture, no snow, just cold. And for us, below freezing is REALLY COLD. In south Louisiana, 50 milies from the Gulf coast it is REALLY, REALLY COLD!

Lots has happened since......

Lots has happened since I last blogged. My daughter had day-surgery, I now know all the kitten's new names, I had my eye exam and bought new glasses, got a new credit card that covers people AND pets plus we have a Vet appointment tomorrow. I am STILL waiting on a time set up for my dental appointment and my doctor's appointmet is in a couple of weeks. Plus to add to all this my wife "said" we are going to go get new i-phones today - same numbers but new upgrades. I'll tell you about it if I see it.

My daughter had surgery on her abcessed hip which she said was unexpected and SUDDEN. She is better now but 'laid up' for a week or two.

The one kitten name I did not kown well but she became Shawdow, alias Black in her new forever home. And she seems to be doing well. The gray tabby became ours and his doing very well.

I had my eye exam yesterday and it went well BUT  expensive. But then again my old glasses are over 10 years old so I really can't complain.

We took both cats and dog to the Vet today for their checkups and shots. All news was great, Little Bit was just over three pounds now and very healthy said the Vet. Doc seemed a little stressed but tooks his shots like real trooper and then as we were heading out to leave he tinkled about a dozen times and pooped once. TJ, our older male cat did really well. He took his shots without clawing anyone.

We came home. I feed them all. They ate well. It's still cold outside and raining so they all want to stay inside. All are sleeping/napping right now.

Yesterday my wife and I went to get new iPhones. We upgrade to the 8's  - my wife from a 6 and me from a 4. My wife is giving her dad her old 6. He is 91+ and just 'wants' anything new.

I have uploaded a dozen hew items to TPT but no real sales yet.

Names, names, names....

My wife is still coming up with various names for our gray tabby. Even my grand-daughter is in on the search, She has even gone through a website of names but nothing stricks their fancy. Names we have tried, talked about have include Lil' Bit, Snuggles, Spice, Lil' One, Gray, Mittens, Tabby. and yesterday Kitty.

My ideas don't count so I try to stay out of it but my wife says we should just try the names on her each for a day or two and see how it fits. So far "Kitty" seems to fit better than any of the others. Lil' One is out of the running since it was the name of my wife's former kitten that was run over last year. Spice was my idea but it was shot down quickly.

Little Bitty Kittie has seemed to fit gray really well for now at least.

We still don't know the name of Black, White is now named Charlie - both a girl's name OR a boy's name.

No more kitten's I hope but who knows what will happen at my father-in-law and with my wife.

My daughter is still sick but "refuses" to go to the nearest Urgent Care or hosital ER. I guess she just wants to stay sick. She's going to need a doctors excuse to go back to work at SOMETIME in the future.

More on that later.

Happy T02222han2222222ksgiving

Little Bit is helping mr typr and watching every botton I pus23335hz!!!!!!11143333333333333

Finally, an hour later I get to come back to this blog. The kitten is wandering around the rest of the house - or should I say RUNNING around the rest of the house. He acts just like nothing has changed, like Black did not disappear, nothing. He slept in our bedroom/bed last night. Sleep is not the true word I was looking for since cats/kittens are nocturnal animals. They sleep all day and are up all night it seems.

I wanted to get a picture of him helping me type but as soon as I got my phone he was gone, doing something else. He runs up and down the hall, jumps up on the bed, explores everything. It's a new experience being out of the kitchen. But he is so lovable and snuggles big time, climbs on my shoulders, pulls my glasses off.

More as I get time. Here he comes again....

Happy Thanksgiving.....

New home for "Black"...

We finally found a new home for Black which means we only have one kitten left and we are keeping it. So for now we are back to 'normal' after 13 weeks of kitten-sitting. It has been interesting. fun. challenging, tough, sad, fun, Vet filled, trying and all in-between.

Black's new home is with a young girl who works at Pampered Paws and has another kitten about two weeks older than Black. She knows about kittens, dogs, and taking care of them and she wanted a 'playmate for her other young kitten. It should be a match made in heaven. We were out putting up flyers when we went by Pampered Paws and she told my wife "I think I just hold on to this..." Two days later she called to pick Black up.

Gray - better known to us as Little Bit, does not and has not taken anything from the dog or anyone else for that matter. He may only have one eye and is the runt of the bunch but he stands his ground. He is 100% lovable and our 11 year old male cat loves him which is a plus.

Here is a photo of all three kittens before they got their forever homes. White was first to go. His name is now Charlie and the girl who got him loves him and sends us pictures/videos weekly. Black goes today and Little Bit found love with my wife.
