This post is about the cat condo with Scooby. The cat condo goes back to 2011 I think. It has had periods of popularity and periods of total neglect.
You know how cats are. A popular sleeping place for Scooby is a cardboard box. He often is hard to find when he is sleeping under it. I decided to upgrade his box and put the condo on top of it. Could use some “decoration.” Maybe I could put an even bigger box under it! It was not long before Scooby moved in! A change in position can often revitalize an unused item.
Marigold is my love Christine’s Calendar Cat pick for February 2019. The calendar was a present made by Christine and Spike (Christine & Spike), and sent last year for use this year. Little did we know that Marigold would not be with us in February. This is a good tribute to remember her by. She died 17 January 2019. Her photo here is from August 2017. Seems like yesterday. Christine has been sending calendars to me for many years now. I hope she never stops making them for me.
Marigold’s Last Gallery is a collection of old and some unpublished new photos of Marigold. As I write this, she is dying of kidney cancer, and has little time left. This is the last appearance of the Steamboat Queen. I wanted to post these while she is still alive. I probably will not be answering any comments . She is over 15 years old and I got her at a shelter holding an adoptathon. Your mum who helped me get you, and passed away years back, will be waiting for you with your old pals Verty, Peep, and Gracie. You can all play together and be a family again. In the meantime, I will be here with you so you are not alone.
STEAMBOAT QUEEN Marigold was a steamboat queen, The purrtiest cat that you’ve ever seen! With long creamy hair And those big green eyes, We’re all in love. I can tell no lies! She has a picture in bed, Hangin’ over the bar. The sultriest cat in the bay by far. She runs the gambling tables, The dice and the wheel, And it’s not just by chance That you got a bad deal! It’s snake eyes you’ll get, DON’T you know? Whether Anchorage, Alaska, or cold Juneau. Seattle, Tacoma, Vancouver too, She’ll win your money– Nothing you can do. Cats, stay away From her games of sin, And the green-eyed temptress Who will lure you in, With plates of fresh tuna– Everything is free! Won’t you sit a while and Play a little game with me?
