A Special Day With a Special Kitty.




Levon, " June 18th was Jo-Jo's ( from The cat from hell) Gotcha Day. We are celebrating it today! Better late than never I say! AND we are going to celebrate together , here in Vancouver ! Can you see our pink hearted love?! It's growing! I planned a very fun day and you can see all the lovely details here. First , we went out to a champagne brunch where there was lots of yummy seafood! We ate and ate and ate enough to fuel our next stop. . . "










Levon, ". . . the Grouse Grind. It is like Nature's stair master ; very steep and a huge workout all the way up a mountain! But when you get to the top , the view is worth all that "grinding"! Heehee. At the half way mark though, I started to see stars the climb was so strenuous . . .but Jo-Jo started to see butterflies! She loves butterflies and sees them everywhere , all the time!"










Levon, " After our climb, we went swimming to cool down a bit. We went to the large , outdoor pool in Stanley Park. It is right next to the ocean . You can see the ocean and mountains as you swim. I'm blushing a bit to admit this, but I swam and did swan dives into the pool to impress Jo-Jo. Jo-Jo wore an Itsy Bitsy, Teenie, Weenie, Polka Dot Bikini. That made me blush too on account she looked so prettyful and all."











Levon, " After an afternoon of swimming, we went to eat lusty , French cuisine at , The Bacchus Restaurant. That's what the menu said, "Lusty French cuisine served here". I presented Jo-Jo with a token of my admiration and love on our special day together. You can see my gift to her , here."











Levon, " Jo-Jo is the sweetest little dumpling I could ever dream of. Happy Gotcha Day , Little Dumpling! I can't wait for us to spend more summer time . . . when the going is easy, together!"











Have a Sweet Sunday one and all!
See you Monday.

 Mitalee , " I can't complain about the adulation."












 Mitalee , "My eyelids are getting heavy with the sound of all those sweet words. It is almost like a lulling lullaby putting me to sleep!"












Mitalee , " ZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz."











Have a Fabulous Friday and weekend one and all!
See you Monday.

Inquiries about the New Window Seat Answered.





 Levon, " Some of you were wondering how this new window seat works. I thought I would explain."












 Levon, " There are four suction cups that hold the seat in place. Two behind the window seat and two attached to cords suspended above the seat."











 Levon, " Here is a front photo of the window seat. We blurred out the background but you can get an idea of how it is constructed."













 Levon , " The suction cups are strong enough to hold fifty pounds."













 Levon, " That is a lot of cat! Of course I am far more svelte than that!"












Levon, " You know what?  I really love this window seat. So does Esme. . . we might need to get a second one! Hope that answered some of your questions :) "














Have a great day!
See you soon.
