Dad's Back

Well, it's been a quiet week here.  Dad went off to his annual work "Leadership" conference (in quotes because he always comes back at least a few pounds heavier than when he left, so I think we all know at least some of what goes on there).  Mom and I got to share some girl time without the big oaf in our hair (just kidding, dad). 
     All that matters to me, really, is that I get to do lots of this. 
Like, every day.  Sure, I was happy to see dad back home, but I made the most of mom's lap while he was gone.  I just have to spread myself around sometimes.
     This pretty much sums up how our Saturday was here.  A nice warm lap, comfy clothes, chillin' in the double lounger with a cold beer- what more could one ask for (except some real food like I'm sure dad got at conference and not this k/d stuff I'm forced to eat).

Hello! I'm so happy you found us so could visit in return. ~grin~ That looks like an ideal day, not unlike my own. Sad to say, My devoted lap cat, Luna, passed away August 5th, of 2014. I swear she was my true soul mate, and SO would agree! Be well.

Sounds like you and your mom had as good a time as your dad, but minus the tempting food.

Cleo, did you know that there is cat wine available? Maybe while your hoomins are enjoying a brewski, you can get a lick or two of cat vino!

I am so enjoying reading down to Cleo's adventures. I hope her perch will soon be back where it belongs! Cleo seems to know exactly what happens at those conferences! Big smiles from Lizzie Cosette and me!

And thanks for coming by Marmelade Gypsy. I appreciated your visit and comment!

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.
