Hi! Sorry we haven't written for a long time, but we've been busy! Tigress has learned to eat from the inside bowl sometimes and is letting Erin pet her when Erin and JJ come to visit. Last time, she even sniffed JJ's fingers!
It's been sunny and warm lately, but yesterday morning we woke up and the world was cold and wet. No fun! Well, I thought it was no fun, but I found out differently. Last night, the invasion of the frogs started again! Mommy calls them the plague of froggies. When she came home last night, seven froggies were stuck to the front door and one was on top of the door frame! They had to be brushed onto the sidewalk and the ground before she could come in the door. We didn't get any inside, but then I saw some on the back door.
Hello! I'm Smokey, and I'm Little Bit's sister, from the same litter. I'm also Starla's cousin. If you were a friend of the PDX pride when we were on Catster, or a few years ago on here, you may remember me. My mommy is Erin, and my human brother is JJ. I usually live with them, but I've been staying with the PDX pride, Mommy Karen, and Daddy Scott for a few weeks while things settle down at my house. Dare, the youngest kitty in my family, was acting up because her person left. That made me nervous, so I started guarding the litter box and the food. I also chased Dare and terrorized her. Mommy thought it was best to remove me from my home for a while to see how Dare did. Well, that little cat was the problem, not me! So I'm going to be going back to my real home in a week or so, and Dare will come to this house. We'll see then if she starts using the litter box properly again!
I miss my family, but I knew some of the kitties here already. Of course, I know my biological family, but Rori, Tabby, and Carbon were also part of my first family because I came to live with the PDX pride when Cousin Starla did. She, Little Bit, and I would come and go in the house in Portland when we were all kittens. I didn't know the newer cats here in this house, but I settled in pretty easily and now play chase with everyone up and down the hallway! My favorite place to sleep is on the top of the recliner, above Daddy Scott's head.
Exciting news! Exciting news! My book is now available on Amazon.com and also for the Kindle! It is now priced at $9.99 for the paperback
and $2.99 for the Kindle
version. That's a 50% savings over the Blurb edition, plus now it has the electronic edition. Wow! I've already sold one for the Kindle!
I've been visiting again since September, but we've had so much going on with everything here (and Mommy started teaching her classes again) that I haven't had time to write. One of my friends at H. actually went to the next floor up to find us, because we'd missed her on her floor. She found a nurse, who found us, so we went to visit the lady! I have a couple new friends, too. Our next visit is on Wednesday, and both Mommy and I will dress up in our Halloween costumes for it!
