umm, hi efurrybody, it's me, meep . . . me n' Buzz have kinda been absent from bloggin' this summer, but we have a note from our mom . . .
Hello to all of our blogging friends,
Buzz & Meep have been very quiet this summer. Like all of us, they have been feeling the heat. They've both been listening to the advice of the weatherman, "staying in the A/C, drinking plenty of water, and limiting strenuous activity . . . ". Lemme tell ya, they have taken that last bit to heart; as you can see from the picture, they've even decided to take time off from fighting!
We had a wicked (as we say in New Hampshire) hail storm back in July - house fared pretty well, but we need all new siding and two skylights. Poor Meep had a terrible time with that storm; the sound of the hail (literally "golf-ball" sized) hitting the roof and skylights was almost more than he could take. Jim tried to give him some comfort by holding him, but poor little Meep just laid there shaking. We made some space under the bed for him to "hide", and that seemed to help him get through the rest of the storm. Meanwhile, Buzz just sat on top of the bed, washing, head-butting us, and generally ignoring the storm. It was amazing to see how they both dealt with the situation so differently.
Technology has not been very good to the boys lately either . . . Blogger has hiccupped on them a couple of times and Jim had to take their laptop to another conference (I still can't believe they let him borrow it!)
Then there was the unfortunate "fancy pants" grooming incident - I'll let Buzz talk about that when he's ready . . .
Things seem to be getting a little bit more back to normal around here, so the boys will be back to work on Monday. They have a lot of new friends to add to the links section of their page. We want to thank everybody that posted or emailed to check on them; what a thoughtful "cat-mmunity" you all are!
Take care & keep cool,
Bonnie aka "the girl" / "mom"
