an unphoto filled weekend

so
 i have been sick
 miserable
 congested
 since wednesday
 but
 i am improving 
going back to work 
monday
 which 
i guess is 
today
as you read 
 but
 tomorrow
 as i write

 its been an eventful few days
 tho i havent been out much
 the weather being mostly awful
 there are no new photos

  i think
 i told you
 we were adopting another cat
 her name is annie 

we picked her up from the vet on friday
 she's been in the bottom
 of
 toonman's closet
 for most of the weekend
 ever 
since 
jack
 was
 not 
welcoming 

in fact
 he was downright
 nasty

 she was inspecting the bedroom 
when he walked in to see what was happening

 she hissed 

i dont know
 if you know
hissing 
usually
 means
 i am scared please back off

 instead of being a gentleman 
backing off
 he not only hissed back
 he growled
 she growled
 there was a lot noise 
scary noise

 she burrowed her way deep into the bottom of my closet
 it being the closest place to hide

 harry
 the whole time
 sat 
on the cedar chest at the foot of the bed
 watching

 they were both ushered out
the bedroom door
closed

over the next two days 
she moved into toonman's closet 
made herself at home
 on top of something 
coming out 
only
 to
 eat pee/poop
 (we put food and water bowls and a small litter box in the bedroom keeping the door closed to the boys)
 and
 to prowl around the bedroom at night

 she is letting me pet her 
sometimes 
tho
once she scratched me
 another time 
she hit me without using her claws

i called that an improvement 

she's scratched toonman twice

 he isn't taking it personally
 but
he has decided
 to wait
 til she's out and about
 before making friends

anyway
 thats whats been happening

so here's another pretty photo
i took during my visit to the botanical gardens
last weekend

  4. Poor you, being so sick and miserable. And poor Annie, being so confused and scared. Little does she know, she has landed in the best home she could ever hope for. I guess I'd be a little worried too if I'd been tossed out of a car. WTH is wrong with people?
    I hope you both feel better soon.

  5. Oh dear. Well, I bet they will sort it out before too long...I hope. And you, Miss ginger cat owner, what a time to come down with a cold. Ugh. Hope you take vitamin C or drink copious amounts of orange juice or something. Also, by the time you read this, you'll be well into your work day, so I hope it's going ok and you're not too tired out. Big hugs. x

  6. Hi Daryl, I drove past the city yesterday en route to New Hampshire. I tipped my hat to you as I passed. Be well. D

  8. I am so glad to hear you are a bit better, Daryl. There are so many people that are sick now.

    It's going to take some time for the kitties, but they are all going to be just fine (and you and Toonman too!!). They are very lucky to be in such a wonderful home. xo.

  9. She'll come around on her own time, I suppose. Hopefully Jack will be more receptive to her. Does he sniff around the bedroom door much?

  10. Well, I think it's pretty wonderful that she comes out to pee and poop! The alternative..not so pleasant. ;-) I know that building in the Botanical Garden! It just didn't look as "foxy" in March of 2010. ;-) (MUST get back during later spring or early fall.)
