My husband and I , with our dog, Tate, moved to Buenos Aires.. Life has never been the same since ~ Back in the USA ... life is still not the same !
It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

Avoid Touching the Ball

Another Insane Kitty Alert.

She wakes up squeaking, tiny baby meows although she is getting bigger .. she is an adolescent now I think .. in Kitten Years.


She found a ball with a bell in it.
She carries it around in her mouth .. sometimes meowing at the same time. Kitten meows with a ball in her mouth have a different sound .. I try not to laugh , it is impossible.
She walks through the house, jingling, mouth full, then meows .. I have to laugh .. she looks at me with scorn and continues through the house... looking for a good place to hide her ball.

She is under my bed with it now ,  she thinks she is hidden, I can see her tail switching back and forth, little chortling meows coming from under the bed.
She hasn't gotten that Silent Cat thing yet ... you know,* fog rolls in on silent cat feet ?
Not my cat !
Fog would roll in with little chortles and squeaks !

I have spent 2 days searching for something.
It should be in my bedroom, today the search widened to the other rooms in the house.
I have looked in places where it could not be ... of course, it wasn't there ... it isn't anywhere but I know it is.
Where would you hide if you were a automatic fan/ light remote ?
No, you wouldn't hide in the drawer in the table next to the bed .. that is too easy.
In any drawer in the bedroom ? nooooo.
In the closets ? In the pockets of clothes in the closets ? On the shelves in the closets ? No !

The fan  cannot be turned on without the remote. The light can but not the fan.
And I don't have the box or info on the fan to just order a new one.
What to do ?

I need another cup of coffee.
It is raining and dreary, probably a good day to look for a remote control device.
Avoid touching the little ball with the bell in it ..
Avoid ordering more goodies online.
Avoid drinking more coffee.

                                                 Does that look like a Sane kitten to you ?

on little cat feet.
It sits looking
over harbor and city
on silent haunches
and then moves on. Carl Sandburg

If I were the remote I would be in the kitchen, having been carried there in the pocket of someone's robe, then left on the counter as they carried a cup of coffee to another room. :-)

Weekender, she is .. she really is :)

Indigo Dragonfly, you might be on to something ! I will look.
At this point, I feel like there is nowhere I haven't looked.
I bet Minette found it and she is hiding it ... that is something she would do.
