No Flooding Here -- Yay!
Yay! Our home did not flood. My thanks go to Ms. Tina's Class and everyone who wrote. The creek got high even though it did not spill over its banks.
Dandelion and I had quite an adventure. We were placed into cat carriers and taken to a two-story apartment. I was scared of the new place. I hid in a closet. The mother says that she can tell what I am thinking by looking at my eyes. I had big round scared eyes.
Dandelion was different. He seemed to like the new place and went exploring, poking around in everything. He even found a ball attached to a chain, all of which was lying on the floor and kept it for a toy.
When my humans were done carrying boxes into the apartment, they sat down by me and petted me. I felt much better having my pets around.
Eventually, I went exploring, too. I had never been in a place with an "upstairs" before. I like going up and down stairs! The most fun of all was finding a hole in the upstairs floor that had warm air coming out of it. I started sleeping half on top of that hole.
Most of all, I got to come home the next day. There is no place like home. I am very happy now. I get to jump into all kinds of boxes today. I have gotten good at this. I can leap from one empty box right into another. Whee! Muddy

Dandelion and I will be spending tonight and tomorrow night at the vet's or someone else's apartment. There has been much rain in our area. The river is swollen and cresting. Normally, that is not a problem, but more rain is expected and the creek by our home will have nowhere to drain the water because of the crested river. (The water even runs backwards when the river crests, the mother tells me.)
Flooding is inevitable, the familys says. They only hope it stays in the streets and does not reach the house, but they have to plan for the worst. I may not be able to post here for a few days. The mother has a cell cam and will post pictures to it as events unfold. See www.BamaPhotos.com for the latest news on us if I do not post here.
It will not be fun to be away from home. On the other hand, sniffing all these boxes that the family just brought into the house is very interesting.Muddy

The parents give us a can of moist cat food once every week or two. We eat this right up. Unfortunately, the last time we got moist cat food, we got a sick and threw up a little.
Cats sometimes can not handle a diet change. A little moist food now and then seems to be good for the digestion, but the vet says it is bad for our teeth. The parents are going to find something else moist to give us, but for now, we are sticking with our dry cat food.
Neither Dandelion nor I are crazy about other food, well, except for grass (which Dandelion loves) and catnip (which I will eat). Dandelion likes one bite of human meat now and then, but only one bite, then he is satisfied. All I want to do is sniff what my pet humans eat. I can't believe humans like so many different things.Muddy

Dandelion Saves the Day
Dandelion did the family a great service last night. He coughed up a hairball behind the recliner.
The mother and father were disgusted until the father pulled the recliner out from the wall and discovered that it was falling apart with screws on the floor and dangling parts underneath.
Thanks to the hairball, the parents were able to fix the recliner before it completely fell apart and hurt someone. Leave it to a cat to save the day!Muddy

Boxes and Sacks
Yay! A box came to our house again. These things smell so interesting that Dandelion and I immediately go up to one and check it out. I really love jumping inside them.
The young girl came over, too. She played with me a LOT. She threw things down the hall that I chased. She brushed me. She opened a paper sack and scratched at one end. I went into the sack to attack the sound. I has so happy that, when she left, I sat in the hall for 2 hours, waiting to see if she would come back. She is the most fun of any human I know.Muddy

See any Fish in There?
Myst (my nephew since we both have Persian blood) and Lucky (an abandoned kitten who found a new home with the young girl and her husband) are having a good time together. Myst says his main pet human is the young girl. Lucky claims the young guy as his main pet.
One of their pets took this photo. They were looking at the swirling water in the toilet, a convenient place to play and drink from. It's good of our humans to keep fresh water around for us and we appreciate it even though it can be a little hard to reach.Muddy

The father was dragging a cable across the kitchen floor yesterday. I love it when unsual things happen around here and I make it a point to sit in the middle of all the action, thus I sat down right by this cable and thoroughly sniffed it over. Alas, it did not appear to be alive. It smelled dusty and old -- still, it had potential to be a great toy so I stayed put.
I was really hoping that someone would drag it around, then I could pounce on it and chew it up, but alas, it did not move much, although I kept on eye on it.
The real fun came later when a box arrived. The mother cleaned out the box and left it on the floor for Dandelion and me to smell and jump inside. I love boxes! They smell curiously strange. I don't know why they arrive with all kinds of garbage in them, but at least the mother will clean out the garbage so we cats can enjoy a good box.Muddy
