Manhattan Madness

Hi, it's Manhattan. Here we go again, weeks between blog posts.

Z-Girl was supposed to tell my story in February because you see, in 2010 I was caught in my Great Capture. I went through two surgeries and spent a lot of time at the vet hospital, then came to live in the Warehouse apartment. My Rescue happened right around St. Valentine's Day and my transition to my new home started in early March.
 My first surgery was to save my life.


A few days later, I was spayed.

Dear readers, you know how things go here. When Z-Girl gets busy at work, this blog gets neglected. It's really not fair because I truly was looking forward to the publication of my tale. A few pictures will have to do.

Important Update:
Remember when we told you that catification is on it's way? Well, here's what I can report.
Tomorrow, Mr. Casey will come to move the TV off the Big Wall. He will also hide all the wires so Valentina can't chew them they don't show anymore.

Next, Mr. Jim has to come and patch/repair the Big Wall. While that is underway, Ms. Andrea is planning the relocation of furniture around the Warehouse apartment--but best of all, she is going to draw up the design for what will go on the Big Wall and the Window Wall for us kitties. 

I did overhear something about the Big Red Chair. Something about when it's gone. Gone? Gone? Where will we have our Kodak moments?  Valentina is having one here:

Valentina has always loved the Big Red Chair. Gone?

Then there's talk of paint for the kitchen and I know there's more but my attention turns to sunbeams.

Z-Girl said she will take pictures of the walls in transition. Keep your paws crossed for us. 

This is Manhattan, over and out.

Cats, Hats and Other Cool Scats...

Hey there, this is Valentina.


Today is lazy Sunday in the Warehouse apartment. Z-Girl was away on business all last week, and we threw quite a party when she arrived home Friday afternoon. I conducted my signature victory lap up and down the hallway. Manhattan joined in. Lulu, she had a lot to say. She pointed out that during the week of her absence one of the new high rises going up outside our window has now eclipsed our view of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge and the New York Harbor skyline. This is a milestone we are not at all happy to announce.

Coco and Bessie show their happiness in individual ways, but needless to say we were all tuckered out Friday night at lights out!

Although late to the game, all of us at Squeedunk Cats want to participate in The Dr. Seuss/Read Across America Day. After all, he wrote The Cat in the Hat...

So we selected a meaningful quote. Hard to do cuz he had lots of fun quotes and even wrote about fish.

Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot. 
Nothing is going to get better. It's not.

Reading is the doorway to knowledge. Knowledge keeps a person, and us cats, curious. 
And this is how we learn, and grow, and change. Hopefully for the better. 

Read, Be curious. Care a whole awful lot. Make a difference.

Here's a question for Z-Girl: Why don't any of the Squeedunk Cats have hats? They look like great fun. You could wear the hat and we could curl up in the hat box...
