Saturday

It's Saturday and the good swim class. I like the class because I like the instructor and the time of the class and it gets me all the way north of town - a good point from which to do errands and stops on my way home.  Today's plans include breakfast and Petco.  I'm really becoming a huge fan of their refillable littler deal.  Plus, Zoey needs dry food.

Then home.  The 'hood is going to fill up again today.  There's a soccer game this afternoon and a baseball game tonight.  The best money is to get the car home and garaged sooner than later.

I joked yesterday about my Feather on a Stick injury but, seriously, my shoulder is really sore. I guess I need more Feather on a Stick work to build it up!

Betty and Zoey really do get closer and closer to actual conversation.  I think the real standoff now is Zoey.  She's wary of Betty still.  Betty honestly doesn't care, I don't think.  She's comfortable that Zoey's not going to fuck with her food and nothing else is worth worrying about.  Zoey did hop on the ottoman last night for a bit to sniff around Betty. She got a good sniff or two and then split.  But she stayed around.  They both spent the evening with me in the living room.  It was lovely.

Ok, time to suit up and hit the road.

conspiracy afoot

I got home after being gone about 4 hours and I opened the door to the condo.  Betty and Zoey were right there together at the door.  Both looking guilty but then cats always look guilty.  Me thinks they are getting along a shade better than they are letting me see.

Among other stops, I went to the Petco where I got Betty.  There was a Petco lady over by the adoption center when I went by just to check on the cats.  She asked if I was interested in adopting and I told her I already had - Zoey!  She was all excited.  Zoey was their first adoption!  She asked all about her and I was delighted to give her a good report.

I got some new toys.  One is fancy - it requires 3 batteries - one a 9 volt.  I have C's, I have D's, I have AA's and AAA's,  I even have a stash of some that I have no clue what they are for and a whole bunch of those button batteries that kill little children.  Do I have any 9-volts?  NOT A ONE.  I checked my old transistor radio to see if it had one, nope.  I can't think of anything else that might use one which is why, I suspect, I have none.  Sigh.

I'll get one tomorrow.  Meanwhile, Zoey already adopted one I picked up at the Dollar Store (where I went to get flip flops).  The label says its a Joet Pour Chat.  So I'm thinking it's a french speaking mouse.  Maybe Zoey speaks french.... hmmmm

Happily that $1 was not wasted.  She just took it into the fish house where they are both resting now.  She just cracks me up.

Oh and I got her a proper tag at Petco.  They have the coolest machine.  You buy a tag and stick it in the machine and it engraves it to your specifications right before you very eyes!  Coolest thing ever!

Great swim class.  I got all my errands done.  I almost got home in time to avoid mayhem.  Instead I got a brass band escort!
