Mike's First Day At The Cat Realm

The first thing we do here at The Cat Realm every morning is to go around the house and check that everything is in order and safe. Usually one of the staff comes with us so that any lingering Coyote or Bobcat will - hopefully - leave...
Here you can see our cat door (on the left) in the butler's window.


And of course our guest Mike accompanied us this morning on our walk. It is still a little chilly so Mike put on one of his sweaters that he was smart enough to bring!

After the walk Mrs. OZ showed Mike the bath tub - which is not used right now due to the weather, hahahahaha! You might remember that Anastasia once lost her glasses in it....

Then it got colder again so Mike put on another one of his winter outfits to look at the vegetable garden. It is fenced in to protect the veggies against the vishus javelina but we can climb over the fence because the butler built a ladder for us!

Afterwards he wanted his picture taken in the big cactus out front because he said "The Cat Realm is crazy - even the cactus wears glasses here!" Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha, and he is right!

And then the first day was over and we all watched a beautiful sunset.

We did teleport over to the Rodeo Parade shortly yesterday - pictures will follow.

Only one more day left to enter
the contest!!!!

And don't forget to help
Churchill and Bruno (takes a while to load, be patient...)!

Oh, we had cactus like that, but it got sick and had to be cut down. Very sad.

Mike looks like he is having a lot of fun. I will have to invite him to Florida so we can take him water skiing.

A bathtub OUTSIDE! My Mum is coming to visit - that is a dream of hers - to have a nice big bathtub outside with a view!

I like all Mike's outfits! He didn't bring any clothes when he came to visit me, but then that was his first trip, he is becoming a seasoned traveller now.

I absolutely adore seeing Anastasia up there with her perfect halo.
I hope she and Caesar have found each other, knowing that their beans have broken hearts.
