Syrup, Memories, Sap and Milestones

Sorry I'm so sporadic with this thing lately.  Life has returned to normal around here.  Mom and dad are back to annoying me with their crushing affection for/irritation with yours truly, and I'm back to being my spoiled self.  Here's a picture of that massive jug of pure Vermont maple syrup dad got during their trip up north.
That's right- a whopping gallon of the liquid gold (dad's description, of course).  He was giddy like a schoolgirl about this gift, and mom, of course, will have to oversee its consumption.  Actually, she'd prefer to lock it up, what with dad still being the food addict he is.
     They also brought back some great memories, and they hope it won't be too long before they get to see dad's first granddaughter again.

     This here is baby Cadence, in one of her more peaceful moments.  She's full of energy, smiles and teeth!
     Not bad, considering she's not even a year old yet.  Mom and dad got to play with her for a while, and she kept them smiling with her cute posing and energetic motoring around.
     This gargantuan guy is Cadence's flat mate, and he takes up about the same amount of physical space as Cadence does!
How's that for an evil glare?!  The photo doesn't do his actual size justice, according to dad. 

All in all they had a great trip, but the ride back was grueling.  Today they are celebrating their second wedding anniversary.  Dad was up ridiculously early, as usual (because of me, of course), putting the finishing touches on a cheesey, sappy special poem for mom.  Happy Anniversary, you guys.  Enjoy your day.  Okay, that's enough.  Now turn your attention back my way.  Good.

What a little doll Cadence is! Her cat bud, though...I don't know. He looks pretty cranky.

Happy anniversary to your mom and dad! I think you could let them be sappy this day.

Thanks for stopping by Fuzzy Tales! (The human's too lazy to log into our account at the moment. Huh.)

It's been a long time since we've checked in with you; we're glad all seems to be well, and that your humans are home again. Never mind the maple syrup...where are your treats and presents?!

Wishing them a happy anniversary!

Thanks so much for visiting us. We didn't know about your blog. Mom read several posts of yours today and really liked them, especially the tone and writing. She has subcribed so she can follow Orbit. By the way, both our humans are fanatics of real maple syrup. Hope you'll visit us again. Purrs and hugs from the kitties at The Cat on My Head, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette

That maple syrup looks so good. Cadence is adorable. Yes, the kitty is giving the evil eye but he sure is cute! Happy Anniversary!

1 GALLON Maple syrup ?!
That would last for atleast 10 years over here :)
Cadence looks very pretty when she sleep´s and her flat mate looks very BIG.
Happy belated anniversary to your humans !!

About This Blog

Created in July 2011 this blog chronicled the everyday life of a well-seasoned house panther named Orbit, who made the move with us from Massachusetts to North Carolina. He was a nearly constant companion for almost 22 years, and ruled our roost until he passed away in December 2014 which hit us like a ton of bricks.
After more than 2 years without a live-in feline friend we found this senior Tortie gal at Orange County Animal Services in Chapel Hill, NC and just couldn't leave without her. Cleo certainly came with an abundance of purrsonalitude, and has staked her claim on our hearts and in our home since day one. It took some long, deep thought, but I decided to pick up where Orbit left off and let Cleo tell her stories. Of course from time to time I'll add some non-Cleo posts, but she'll get over it.
