Saturday Caturday - I'm OK

Some of you have been worried about me, I've not been around much. Mom's just been so busy with those builder guys and the porch project. It's nearly done now, here's a photo:

Mom says we can do before and after pictures when it's completely done. More outside work has to be done yet, the sidewalk and the step as well as the lattice work under the porch. Then, Mom needs to decide what she wants to plant around it. The guy's not real happy with the way it looks to the left of the door, Mom says it needs the illusion of a corner post there and that will fix it up.

But, I'm ok, we're just all real busy so far. You know, summers get like that. Mom says the empty calendar is filling up, barbecues and parties. My human sister's wedding picnic is the end of this month and Mom just found out that their friend who was going to do the catering and cooking can't come because he just started a new job and he can't take off. So, now Mom's in a bit of a tizzy over that too.

I just try to avoid everything and crawl under the front of the deck in my favorite spot behind the pink bush and sleep. That keeps me happy and stress-free. Maybe my humans need to try it sometime.

A porch that's enclosed is a fine place for a cat to sit and watch over everything that passes by. Your house looks real nice!

That porch looks wonderful! You're smart to find a good spot to nap while your Mom is in a tizzy!

That porch looks awesome. I think humans would be happier if they just chose a nice fragrant bush to crawl under and sleep!
