Catio Closed! What???????????????

Catio closed!

Is it an earthquake? Is it a tornado? Is it a lava flow? No, we are getting a new roof. I do not want pieces of the old roof falling upon your heads along with other dirt. So, we have the catio covered to keep debris out. I do not want to have to go inside to clean it either. You still cannot go out in it. It will be too noisy and scary. And so it was, for some, but not for others. Scooby, who should be retitled Scooby the Fearless, took no notice of the hammering and banging at all, only occasionally looking upwards toward the sound of the occasional big thump. Marigold as well would just as soon sleep until it was over. On the other hand, Opie skulked about, and would sit by me for my magic protection from all scary things. As long as I was serene, no worries. Zeke burrowed into the back of the closet underneath the stairs, and had to be coaxed out. Then he went to his safe home under the bed, where he stayed all day until they quit for the night. It was only two days, and normalcy has resumed as though nothing has happened.


Is this blue bin our new litter box? How will it fit in the door?

No love lost

Scooby loves Opie, but Opie does not love Scooby.  Here we have Scooby blocking the exit of the catio.  Opie is wanting him to move out of her way, but he won’t.  I defused the situation by pulling Scooby inside so Opie could come in.  The eyes speak volumes.

But when the situation changes, there is no consideration for others by Opie.

Morning Scooby walk


After two weeks the marijuana billboard is removed. It was replaced with an all new sign with no cat or cat references.



Update on the New Scooby Gang

Scooby wanted poster with lantern


The New Scooby Gang has been having trouble with Sheriff Spike and the Notorious Two. No fear. Wild Bill Scooby is not concerned about capture! Evading and fooling those two youngsters was easy!

Scooby says this box is too small! We want more stuff! Starting to get that Scooby catitude again!

Mt Rainier

Mt Rainier from highway 512 going 60mph as a passenger.  I could do these every day but it is pretty off topic.  Warehouse in foreground. Heat has abated.

Finally, due to underwhelming demand, I added a few personal photos to my About page.
