I'm still continuing to be a slacker! The lack of posts on here is depressing. Good news is that things are progressing! I finally have chargers for the cameras. The back office room is somewhat organized though we have no seating in there and the desk still needs to be painted. I have so many things I want to post about but no pictures with me. So stay tuned for:

  • My house decked out in holiday decor (I know its past Christmas)
  • Snow at our new house!
  • New paintings
  • Great Christmas gifts
Those are the big ones. Today Uly is getting declawed. I feel terrible for it to have to come to this but we have tried everything from a plethora of scratching posts to cutting his nails daily. We covered the couches in double sided tape, We covered the couches with blankets and tucked them in but he still gets underneath them to claw the couch. We tried the claw covers that you super glue on (which he manages to get off within 24 hrs). No punishment works on this cat either! If there is trouble to get into he will find it. I will have to take pictures of our poor couches. We are using the laser declaw method which is supposed to be less painful and an easier recovery. Poor kitty has to sleep at the vet tonight. Rocker and Setzer my families old cats were both declawed and they were still able to catch animals and everything so I think Uly will be fine. I still feel really bad about it though.

Christmas morning seemingly overnight Penguin and Uly became best friends. They play and wrestle constantly. I think Penguin ends up getting fed up with it since Uly doesn't tire or give up. He is getting big too. Hes almost 9 lbs and is taller and longer than both the other cats. His paws are huge so I know hes going to continue to grow. I'm so glad to have kitties that frolic! He loves to play with Kathy too who usually lets him do whatever he wants to her but she will play with him sometimes. So cute. I seriously could spend all day simply watching my pets. Pretty sad. When there are four of them though something is always going on.

Justin's Painting

Here is my latest creation, This is a 36" x 48" acrylic on canvas.

This is way more of a landscape than I usually do but I like how it turned out. Hopefully Justin loves it and it has found a good home in his apartment!

I can't believe how long it has been since my last post. Good news though! Janet just got me some chargers for our cameras FINALLY! I should get them today or tomorrow. Plus with Zach's new macbook pro it is a lot easier to update my blog now since I don't have to sit sideways on the couch to use my computer. Sadly the back room still looks like a war zone.
