Really? Halloween is almost here and the real feel is almost 100?


Sophie really likes the catnip cat. My sister-in-law made it a few years ago for Sam & Millie. I don't know where Sophie found it but she enjoys terrorizing it and then licking it.


It is h.o.t. We haven't had any rain this September - I guess because of all the rain we had in August. The weather guessers think it might rain before October.  
Nap time is best!
 Once or twice it actually got in the 60's at night!

Checking out the shower
But I'm tired of having the A/C on when I leave for work just before 6am and it is still dark. 

Can you spot the rabbit?

Nothing Much


 Sophie found Millie's old bed - I guess I overlooked it when I was cleaning out Sam and Millie's old stuff. I'm glad Sophie found it and apparently she likes it!

Ahhh.. some old fashioned Phlox

And here's Sophie again!  She found a toy she loves.  The best part is that it is in the living room and she will come out and play with it every now and again. She's still a little skittish and likes the back half of the house.

Welcome Home Sophie

Sophie


She's 10 years old. 

Small short hair cat

Still exploring the house and loves the window ledge in the master bathroom.

She must have used a faucet for water because she goes to the faucets when I'm near a sink. 
So I got her a watering fountain.
No, she isn't spoiled.

She was an indoor/outdoor cat that lived with kids, grandkids, cats and dogs. Her brother was adopted earlier. 

She ran and jumped on the bed by my feet the first night. She sleeps on the bed now. That is ok with me.

Sophie likes to run around when she isn't sleeping.

She knows the words breakfast and dinner - ok, well, as long as I have her food on a cat plate.

She has a tiny meow but she can purr!

Please say 'hi' to Sophie.

Sam was almost 13 years old
Diabetes wore him out


Sam sure loved to eat and he snatched my food too


He loved violas and pansies for snacks 


Sam caught a rat once...outside


He didn't catch the butterflies, birds or squirrels though

 Sam sure loved to nap


The house is very quiet now

Sam guards against tornadoes




Sam did a great job yesterday guarding against tornadoes and dragons.

Praying for those in the Canton area and surrounding areas that were hit by tornadoes yesterday. It was First Monday weekend too so more people than normal were in the area. 

We got enough rain that the sprinkler system didn't go off early this morning.  Some thunder but not a lot. We are under heavy wind advisory today. Going outside when it warms up a little to check the back yard.
