All is well in the cat house. Bob is chilling in my room with Claude and Toby (the scaredy cat crew). Grace is enjoying being bottle-fed and attacking my ankles every time she sees me. And the rest of the gang is thriving.

A facebook friend runs BARK (an animal rescue in Buckeye) - we're going get together this week to say hi and talk about rescuing and fostering senior kitties. She's also going to take Grace for the time I'm in PA (in two weeks!), because I'm not sure if she'll still be on the bottle or can start being weaned to a saucer or kitten gruel or what. Lilia has loads of experience with bottle babies, and can keep Grace with her, rather than asking Eve to come by 3-4 times a day (tho I'm sure she would love to snuggle the kitties all day long just like me, ha).

Got in my first baseball game of the season on Friday night. The Pirates were in town, so I had to go see Francisco Cervelli, my future husband. Gorgeous night for baseball. Great breeze, roof open, and I didn't care who won. Eve and I are going in May when the Yankees are in town, and you bet your ass I'll care who wins that one.

Happy Anniversary to Pete and Corrie!

Beware the ides of April. I decided that the most useful thing I can do is to rescue senior aged kitties from the shelter and give them a good end-of-life. It made me so angry looking at the shelter websites and seeing cats who were surrendered because they were "too old." So Eve and I drove out to Mesa to visit MCACC (Maricopa County Animal Care and Control), and came home with Bob, a 16 year old mass of matted fur and long nails and a loud purr and a desire to be loved. We go to the vet/groomer on Monday for a haircut and manicure. In the meantime, lots of snuggles.

Of course, we ran into a woman in the lobby who was holding a 2-week old kitten that she found behind her house, so I now also have a 2-week old kitten (named Grace) who needs to be bottle fed and snuggled etc etc.

Life goes on.

Texas is a big state. On the east coast, if you drive for eleven hours, you've pretty much made it through seven states. Out here, eleven hours of driving means you're still in Texas. I drove to Dallas for my uncle's wake. While it was a chance to see mom and Aunt Patti and everyone else, it was the worst possible reason to travel.
