The World Through the Haze of Floof





Hi, efurryone..Anastasia here,

We had an eventful week. These calla lilies are right on our neighbors' doorstep. Aren't they pretty?

Our baby birds are gone, flown off to begin new lives. Here is the last photo we have of them.






Even though their name is swallow, and I must admit, seeing them did stir up my appetite, I never had any intention of taking them up on their name. They were too much fun to watch for that.

We're counting the days to our permanent home. It's now 27 and getting closer! I can't wait--Mom and I will move in, I will get to claim my turf first, and then we'll head north to pick up the boys and the last of our things. We're still waiting for the movers to come up with a date close to settlement where they can bring our things down and arrange for a load somewhere on the way back. This saves everybody money!

Dear furriends, that's all for now. In between my poufings, floofings, preenings, snoozings, filling in for Tom, and everyone singing my praises, I'm plum worn out.



xxoo~A.

We usually have lots of swallows here but have seen very few this year. Mum thinks it is because the Spring was so cold and stormy that they never made it back.
That is good thinking claiming your turf first. Make sure you get the prime spots.

Eileen said...

Wow, you is having quite the adventure Anastasia! We moved a long time ago (three years) and it was a scary day....Sasha almost got losted.

We can't imagine a move taking more than 27 days...that's a furry long time for kitties.

Mom says good luck with the move, she hopes everything goes very smoothly. We just hopes your beans don't forget anything impawtant, like cat toys, food, and treats.

Baby birds have such LARGE mouths! Hahaha.
We hope your move to your permanent home goes smoothly!

Fuzzy Tales said...

Purrs and paws crossed that all goes well, and purrayers that this brings a wonderful new chapter in your human's life.

sagechronicles said...

Oh, Anastasia, you look plumb, tuckered out. Moving is very tiring.

Gracie=^o.o^= said...

Know the baby birdies are doing well. Their mommie taught them to fly and how to find food. Now they will grow up and have their own family. Looks like you are having a nice nap. Think I will teleport home and catch some zzzzzs too.

Mary said...

You need to catch up on your Zzzzzzs Anastasia. :) Weekends are prime time for that. And yes, saving money is an excellent thing. More money for fun cat treats and toys after all!

Mariodacat said...

Awww sweetie I bet mom will be happy when the move is all over too and she can have all her furbabies back again. Have fun exploring your new home when you get there.

Brian said...

I'll be you sure are getting anxious for that big move! How wonderful you get to fur da turf first!

CATachresis said...

That is a big upheaval for you guys!! Take it steady and we hope all runs smoothly!!

We've got swallows too. I have to say I would love to have a chance to swallow one of them!!

love, Austin xx

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

ya know... naming them swallows almost makes you want to taste them doesn't it?? MOL
You're going a good job filling in! Hope your move comes off without a hitch and in a timely fashion!

Katie Isabella said...

You know sweet one, I have never seen a swallow.

Tamago said...

I'm sure swallow babies are enjoying their new life. Hopefully no one will take them up on their name :-)
I hope the move will go smoothly and everyone can settle down soon. You look very tired, Anastasia. Take a good rest and have a relaxing weekend!!

Cathy Keisha said...

That's a lot of news. Good luck with your new crib. Bet you can't wait to see Tom and Tinker and Mitty again.

These birdies must have been very fun to watch and a little bit tempting...

Get as much rest as you can now, because the actual moving and rehoming will be too much fun to miss! (I hope so, anyway.)

Those calla lilies sure are pretty, and those babies are adorable. How exciting that they have flown off to begin their life's adventures. Just like YOU all are embarking on your big move. We are excited for you, and purr and pray that everything goes smoothly.
