Hello, everyone,
Toby here. Tilly doesn't feel too well, so she is resting in her carrier. Imagine VOLUNTARILY getting in the carrier. She likes it, though 'cuz it's cool and private. She usually helps Mum at the computer for a while then she needs a nap. Mum spends lots of time on the computer( time that could be better spent with ME) but she doesn't interfere too much so Mum lets her stay. Older kitties need lots of rest and attention. I understand that, but I really don't think it's fair the amount of Stinky Goodness she gets. She gets first dibs and that's just not right! Just because she's old and a girl... I need LOTS of food to maintain my rubenesque physique.
I am sending cooling vibes to my friend Fat Eric. F.E. doesn't have AC like we do and the heat is bothering him. He is more than welcome to visit and lie under the vent like I do. The breeze ruffles my belly fur and it's very pleasant. Every now and then I stretch and maybe have a bit of a wash, but I mustn't strain too much. I need to keep my weight up.
Our cousin Molly, the Evil Tortie from Maine is very upset.(She's ALWAYS upset, but now she has a reason!). The maintenance men where she and Grandma live haven't trimmed the shrubs in front of her window and she can't see out as well. This makes her very mad, she lashes her tail and growls outside. She also tries to get in the living room window, which is a no-no. There was an incident involving a broken Hummel which my Mum and Dad were blamed for. Ever since then, Molly is not allowed at the living room window, only the bedroom. She can still see the hummingbirds, but she can't see the beans come and go too well. She is especially mad 'cuz she can't see the other kitties any more. Grandma has tried taking her out on a leash, but we don't talk about THAT. Molly is a very, very tempermental kitty. That's all I have to say.
The beans are thinking of having a birthday party for Tilly on August 15. She'll be 17 then. I'll keep everyone posted on details!
Stay cool everyone!

Hi Toby. You know, as one of the cat blogging elders, Tilly might be entitled to get first dibs and be a little crabby now and then. We'll come to her purrthday party if your Mom lets her have one. After reading others blogs, I can see how spoiled we 4 are living in air conditioned comfort.

Love,
Tipper

Hi Tilly and Toby, thanks for visiting our blog. We hope Tilly feels better soon, it must be all the hot weather. We keep laying around and don't want to do anything much. We'd like to come to her party but it is mum beans burfday on the same day, and I fink they are going away which means we will be prisoners

Hello Toby,

Thanks for letting us know that Tilly wasn't feeling well - we hope she's feeling better. We can understand why you might be a little jealous. (We feel the same way about Alberta at our house. She gets stinky goodness whenever she wants and the rest of us don't. Just because she's old) -- Alberta, Sky, Blackie and Charlie
