Where I came from (by Ojo)

Hi hi hi! Ojo here!

Way out there, across the water, and keep going for a long, long way, is where I came from.

I have now been here for longer than I was ever there.

Sometimes I smell something that reminds me of that place, long, long ago. Sometimes I think about the first family that I had, and I wonder what they are doing. If they ever wonder what happened to me. If they hope I'm okay.

First family, I do not know why you did not want me any more, or why I spent all that time living on the streets and then in the shelter, but I forgive you.

First family, if we had not parted ways I would never have met my forever family, and I would not be living in this amazing place. On an island, surrounded by water, covered in mountains and forests. With Cobi and my people, who have loved me and played with me and fed me amazing meals for almost three years now.

First family, I hope you are doing well, and I hope you are happy. Because I am very happy, and I would not change a thing. (Except for maybe adding a second breakfast to the day. That would be good.)

Spring on the Beach!

Spring came to visit for two whole days! We celebrated by going to the Beach!

It was so warm and sunny that we could not stop running!

Ojo fetched sticks! (I did not.)

Oh sun, how we have missed you!!!

Hurray for a spring Beach Day!

Ojo gave me a flower

At the Beach, Ojo dug something out of the sand. It was a flower! She picked it up, and then dropped it at my feet. She gave it to ME! Wasn't that nice of her?

(Ojo claims that she was just spitting it out because the stem was bitter, and because it was covered in sand. But I know better. She gave me a flower!)

Hello? (by Ojo)

Hello? Ojo here!

Why are we stopped?

What are you doing? What is the point of "taking pictures"? Why do we have to stand here? Why can't we go again?

People are boring.

Smelling the flowers

Dear friends,

Have you ever heard the people-expression, "stop and smell the flowers"?

Well, today I tried it.

I gave it a good try, really I did. But I have to say that flowers are boring. Give me a good pee-marking any day! Or a rotting animal. Or deer poop. Or just about anything else.

What's so great about flowers, anyways?

Sigh (byOjo)

Hi hi hi. Ojo here.

Have you ever noticed that there is a LOT of waiting around for the people?

Muskrat! (Fresh, organic, and free-range!) (by Ojo)

Hi hi hi! Ojo here!

I caught a muskrat! Then I ate it!

Isn't that clever? I have now caught the following things:

  • Bunnies
  • Squirrels (but only ever two, they're very tricky!)
  • Mice
  • Voles
  • Ratties (lots and lots!)
  • Muskrat

For some reason the people did not take a picture of me eating my muskrat. I do not know why. The moment when I just had a fuzzy tail hanging out of my mouth would have been perfect!

This meal was very smart of me. This muskrat was fresh, organic, and free-range too! Does food get any better than that?

My toes got cold. My poor little toes. Here toes, I will keep you warm and safe.

I love you, toes.

The sad snowman (by Ojo)

Hi hi hi! Ojo here!

I found a very sad snowman! He was melting! All of his bits had fallen off!

I helped by eating his nose.

What do you mean, that's not helping? If I were a sad snowman, I would want someone to eat my nose! Wouldn't you?

(Any more noses around here?)

Long drives are Not Good (by Ojo)

Hi hi hi! Ojo here!

I do not like long drives. They are Not Good. They are boring and yucky and I always get stuck in the middle.

Are we there yet?

Sigh. I will just lie down and take up the whole middle then. (Are we there yet?)

Why do I not have a BLOG? (by JACK)

It is ME, the Cat Named JACK!

I would like to know, WHY do I, the Cat Named JACK, not have a BLOG?

Am I not as BEAUTIFUL as the silly, stinky dogs? Am I not as INTERESTING? Why do I not get a BLOG too?
