Goodbye to the Mayor

It is with a heavy heart that I report the passing of our furry friend, Froggy.
Froggy was a boisterous, friendly and outgoing kitty.  He would tell you all about his day, in great detail.  He would also tell you about the day of others he would watch as he looked out the front window.  (He was a bit of a gossip!)  He had quite a talent for story-telling and would weave some fantastic tales.  The times I had the honor of cat-sitting, he would even call out from the window as I approached the doorway.  He couldn't wait to start telling me all about the adventures of the day.  I used to tell Froggy that he should run for Mayor as he seemed to know everyone and everything happening in his neck of the woods.  He agreed he would make a fine Mayor, as not only did he enjoy meeting people and getting to know them, but people really seemed to be drawn to him and interested in what he had to say.
Hello!  How are you?  Let me tell you about my day!  So the first thing I did today was.....

All that talking can exhaust a little kitty, and that's when Froggy would become Mr. Cuddlebug.  He would purr and snuggle, all warm and cozy. 

Sweet Froggy cuddled on my lap

Froggy -- I know you have met up with your brother Kismet and have so much to tell him.  I'm sure you are entertaining all your new friends with your grand stories.  I know you'll tell everyone about what a wonderful time you had with the best parents that a little kitty could ever ask for; and how, as much as you didn't want to leave them, you knew it was time and you were so thankful they were there by your side.  Thank you for always greeting me with such enthusiasm when I came to visit and for telling me all about the goings-on in your world.   I will miss your voice and your purr and the jingle of your collar.  Please know that you'll forever be in the hearts of your mom & dad and those who were lucky enough to know you.
Godspeed little guy.

The Froggy & Mousey Show!!!

Miss Mouse looking divine
I have the honor of looking after Frog and Mouse this week while their parents are away. As usual, the kitties are being little angels.
Mousey came to greet me too!
Aww, Mousey kisses! <3
I'm ready for dinner!
What will Froggy pick for dinner?
Paw Lickin' Chicken it is!
Froggy doing a great job on his din dins!
Froggy, eat a little bit more!
I did a good job on my dinners!
The temps hit high 90s for a few days, but the kitties didn't seem to mind too much. Seems like the perfect reason to lounge. Who calls it the "dog days" of summer, anyway?
Hot Froggy
Keeping cool
Well kitties, I'll be back again tomorrow! Until then, keep cool and remember, Froggy you're in charge while mom & dad are gone, ok?
Benny coming to pick me up!

Goodbye to one fine Gentlecat

I am very sorry to report the passing of the sweet Kismet - a kitty with such big, expressive eyes, fur as sleek as a seal, and a soft and gentle soul.

I loved the times I had the honor to cat-sit with Froggy, Mousey and Kismet. Kismet was always such a little love - coming over to me with a purr as loud as a motorboat. Giving me his little "Kismet kisses" on my hand. He would run enthusiastically to his dinner bowl and chant his little "meows" while waiting patiently for his meal to be prepared.
Kismet Kisses

Kismet with his brother, Froggy

Our thoughts go out to Kismet's wonderful family. He was a big kitty with a big personality. I can only imagine how much you must be missing him.

Goodbye for now, sweet Kismet. Your memory will live on with those of us lucky to have known you.

Missing you, my pumpkin.

Guess who? Froggy, Kismet and Mousey - that's who!!

I was also lucky enough to get to cat-sit the famous trio of Froggy, Kismet & Mousey for a few days!
Froggy is always first on the scene to greet me!

Awww Kismet kisses!

What time is it kitties?

"TIME FOR DINNER!!" says Frog enthusiastically.

What shall we have for dinner tonight, Mouse?
I'm torn between the Tender Beef and the Chicken feast...

I just want you to know that I am waiting patiently.

I am still waiting patiently.

In case you didn't see me, I'm here waiting patiently.

Finally ready!
Mouse does her three-twirl dinner dance.

We are waiting patiently too, but we know the rules: ladies first. :)

Nom nom nom nom nom.....

Aaah, that was a good meal.

Mousey does a little ballerina stretch

Kismet attempts to do the same

Are you MOCKING me??

I didn't think so.

Is it game time yet?

It's the string game!!

Grrr! Grrr! Ferocious kitty!

Mousey is unimpressed by string, but I know one thing Mousey cannot resist!
It's the String-Rustling-in-Trash game!


Froggy likes String-in-Trash game too!

Who could resist this face?

Aww Kismet is such a love bug!

Aww, Froggy! :)

Had to get in a picture of the cool garden!

OH, and a shout out to the robots!

See you again soon sweet kitties!!
