Friday: Friends and Family

Well, it's my last day at Granny and Poppa's. It was pretty good here. Gran's good about coming downstairs and filling my dish with my special t/d kibbles, and there is a nice warm screened-in porch with two different tables to sprawl on. Gran put terry cloth tablecloths on them, which feels real good on a hot day.
Last night Momma went to visit two little Meezer guys who live across the street. Here are the neighbors:





They're named Blues and Jazz. Blues is a blue point, and Jazz is a lynx point. I think they're about 4 months old now. They've already got some pretty rockin' Meezer laser eyes, don't they?


Here they are wrestlin'. They are a handful, I think. Granny's talking about gettin' a Meezer sister for Sophie. I think that a mini Meezer would be a good match for that Sophie...












Here's Sophie perched on her ring I showed you the other day. She jumps up on top and then flips around to play with the mouse in the middle. I told her about your circus tricks, Daisy, and I think she wants to do that, too.


Finally, this is Oreo. Oreo is a really, really old lady. She's 19. She likes to pretend that Sophie and I don't exist. She gets away with a lot, too, because she's older than dirt. You know how it is: she sneaks my food or hisses on the stairway, and immediately the Beans are all "Oh, Oreo! Are you hungry? You have to eat your own special food..." or "Hey Jimmy Joe/Sophie--are you bothering that poor old kitty??" Oh man, she really works the old lady card.
[grudgingly] I guess I'll miss her too, though.
So those are my friends and neighbors here in Michigan. I'll let you know when I'm back in NY! Have a great weekend, y'all!

Oreo had lived a very long life, so she's entitled to get away with some things. Sophie's ring scratching post looks very cute.

Those two Meezers are very cute too, and they certainly have the Goa'uld glowing eyes down pat!

Oh yes, meezers are trouble! But I guess I couldn't imagine life without them anymore. They're cutest when they're mini-sized though.

Thanks for introducing us to your friends and neighbors. Any friend of Jimmy Joe's is a friend of mine! I think Sophie would be a very good Circus cat.

Hi Jimmy Joe!
We are so delighted that you had a wonderful visit with Granny and Poppa. Granny's are so good about tending to our needs.

we loved meeting the wild neighbor kitties Jazz and Blues (super cool names) and Nice to see Sophie again. she looks very steady and happy on the top of her ring.

Oreo..she is an old old kitty girl. We are 16 and I'd say 19 is a very very wonderful age to be. I bet she gets lots of help.

Have a happy week~end JJ
