Retired at 54 to southern UT. BIG mistake. Oh, well, guess I'm stuck for a while. Husband and I cater to 3 cats. We also foster so it's rare that we don't have a spare cat or some kittens in the house. When we don't, it seems odd.

    There was a major breakthrough with the kittens yesterday. They were all on the tree and I was just sitting there, reading my Kindle and petting them. The non-furry orange one kept inching closer to jumping over the edge. I just let him think about it and then wham! He was on my lap. I held him, stroked him and just let him be. I really thought the black one would be next, but later in the day, it was the fluffy orange one that made the leap. The black one just isn’t there yet. I can tell he’s thinking about it, though. He leans over the side, watches the others and then looks at me. I’ve pulled the tree close to me so the leap will be a short one.

    Exactly my sentiments. Once that a/c comes on full time, I don’t leave the house unless I have to. My first summer here (and we got here on June 30), my skin was like lizard skin. It took several years and gallons of lotion to avoid it.

    We have them here, too. There’s always a reminder in the weekly newsletter to NOT LET YOUR PETS out unsupervised. When we lived in the San Diego condo, I was at the mailbox one day and the maint. man was there. We saw a MISSING CAST notice with the cats’ name. He said it might as well say DINNER or LUNCH.Coyotes came came down from the hills behind us. Once, when my sister was there for the holidays, she took her dog for a walk. She came hurrying back saying they met a coyote out by the pool.

    One of our cats likes to be under or on my fabric when I sew. I have a huge L shaped sewing cabinet with an end piece. I put some fabric there and that’s his place. Now, when he jumps up and tries to bury himself into whatever quilt I’m working on, I tell him THAT’S YOUR PLACE. GO SIT ON IT. And he does. He stays there until I get up. I also make little kitty mats that we give to people who adopt a cat or kitten and then we sell them for $5. We have people who buy all of them when I have new fabric. (one guy just bought 8 more last week. He gives them as gifts to his friends who have cats) Anyway, people tell us that those are what their cats like to sleep or sit on. I think it’s because they have the cats’ scent on them.

    Even those of us living near a beach don’t always have parties there. I never did. I love the ocean but am not a fan of sand.

    There’s a guy with a channel – I think it’s call SITTING WITH DOGS – who just sits in the kennels at a shelter (I think in Las Vegas) and tells about the dog and all sorts of things. They get a lot of adoptions because people see his channel. I found it by accident while watching cat videos.

    I don’t see any of your marbles. They must have gotten lost a while back. :)
