2 years ago....

Beautiful hedgie sculpture from Razzle's Auntie Nikki - next to Razzle's urn and Geoffrey's quills:

It's hard to believe it's been two years since Razzle's passing. Although I will always miss my sweet little boy, it's so nice to be able to think back on all the great memories Razzle left behind. It's also nice to be cat sitting three wonderfully cute and playful little kitties this week! They are so entertaining and keep Steve and I laughing with their cute little antics, much like Razzle always did. I will never forget Razzle's annoyed little huffs and the dagger stare to match that would make me laugh out loud. Or the way he would run really, really fast on the wheel when Steve was around, as if to say, "I'm the man of the house, and don't you forget it!" I'll never forget how he would look at me with those big eyes when I held him, and how a soft voice and my nose to his would instantly calm down even the spikiest of quills.

Razzle, please give your little brother Geoffrey a kiss and snuggle from us too. I know you are both ok now - happy, healthy and running free. I hope you check in every once in a while and know that you are both still very much loved and missed, and always will be.

Welcome, Johnny, Katie & Fritz!!!

We are the lucky hosts for an entire week to three wonderful house guests!!

Meet the gang - "the TRIPLE THREAT"....


The sly, handsome one. The brains behind the operation. Johnny is a careful investigator, and a cautious, yet daring, explorer.

Katie aka "Kiki"

Not just another pretty face - Katie is the nimble acrobat of the group - able to sneak into small spaces in a single bound.

And FRITZ....

The "Brawn" of the group - Johnny's apprentice and Katie's protector. Fritz is also a lover of ear scratches and turkey time.

Everyone is settling in quite nicely. We had a very lazy Saturday......
Stretching after a good night's sleep

And of course some fun with a chopstick wrapper!

Happy Birthday, my sweet prickly pumpkin! We are thinking about you today, and hoping you are celebrating with us. We have a special night planned, and have three surprise guests that will be staying with us for a week! One of the guests has stayed with us before....the ever enchanting FRITZ the cat! Tonight he brings with him his big brother, Johnny, and sister Katie! We are so excited to have all three kitties stay with us. What a great way to celebrate Razzle's birthday!

More exciting stories to come later tonight and in the week ahead.
Happy Birthday Razzle!

Auntie Janice
