For me! Pool, spa, sun, ocean breeze, warm ocean, did I mention that, not the cold Oregon Pacific.......an island would do. Or two.
Ok, I really need a home for two kittens, the last two colony kittens, Niners and Whisper.
I'm thinking I should change Niners name to Two Spot or to Little Slinko.
|Ok, This is Slinko (One Spot, a.k.a.)|
|And this is Niners, a.k.a. Two Spot. But maybe Little Slinko?|
|She is not completely photogenic when suddenly roused. Are you?|
But when I opened the door to see how she was in the larger space, she had vanished. Oh gosh, I worried, she'd already slipped out under the door and where was she now. A methodical rational search deteriorated into a rather hysterical one, that included sobbing, self flagellation and some cursing. Did I mention this was near midnight. Did I mention it was still about 90 degrees here in Oregon.
I found her. She had not left the 2nd bedroom. She was nestled in beside the mattress, under something. I took her back to the foster cage until I can fix the door gap.
Miss D is looking model beautiful lately. Given her advanced age, somewhere over 16, I am jealous she looks so darn good.
Did I mention, despite my late night missing kitten act, Miss D clawed my face awake at 6:30 a.m. so she could have her morning cat treats.
So before you think "Ahhhh, so cute" over the above pictures, think of my scarred and bleeding sleepless face. Ok it'd be better if you didn't.
I want out of town. I need out of town, for even one day, one night, anything but the endless concrete and streams of cars, many pulling trailers or boats or stuffed with camping gear and happy people, or topped with bikes and kayaks that make me growl with envy. See I'm sliding the downhill toboggan run into bitter isolated old lady. All I need is a couple days in the woods by a lake to turn me into a grinning silly optimist again.
We're cut off here, from the mountains. ODOT is to blame. Ok, I could go around via another highway. Fine.
I should do it. Summer will soon be gone. Then it will all be "I should have done this, or that." Whine, whine.
In the meantime, I need to find two sweet kittens somewhere to be loved forever.
