The Patience of Job (s)

Well, one Feeder began a new job last month. The other began inheriting a new boss. It was a little disconcerting for Fritz and I to sense their apprehension. To be honest, we were a little preturbed as well.

It is a truth universally acknowledged that they leave home every weekday morning and return each evening purely to earn that monthly or bi-monthly cat food/treat/toy voucher. We are not too keen on any eventuality that might endanger this equilibrium.

However,they seem to have survived the transitions and we're most happy that they remain happy (-ily employed!)

I extend the paw of congratulations....



...and Fritz rests easy once more



Just this past weekend, the Feeders escaped to the sea-shore as guests of kind friends. They seemed more relaxed when they came home. They stayed at a house equiped with rustic, sea-salt-rusty bicycles....



...an immortal frog in the deer-nibbled, shore weathered herb window-box....



..and saw more Monarchs in one weekend than ever; a chance to to photograph them as they have never had before:





We know that this made a Feeder or two happy. Fritz and I are relieved they are back, and we know that they thank their friends who invited them to that Atlantic shore. We hear the hospitality, kindness and company was beyond compare. We guess that some tales may ,as yet, remain untold.

Fritz, the Feeders and I know who these friends are, and we thank them all most sincerely!

I am glad all is going well with the new job and the new boss. Jobs are scary.

That trip to the sea-shore sounds very fun!

I'm so glad everyone is settled into their new jobs. What a relief that your food supply will not be interrupted. Now there might be extra money for special treats too!

It is soooo nice to hear form you two.
we need to keep those beans working hard and staying on the job. we like new toys and snacks and that would not be so if they were lazing around with us all day...

Thank you for checking on us geezer kitties. we are doing so well. Prinnie is getting the flooids every other day, and I get them every day.
We are doing pretty good, but our VET appointment is coming up in September! we hope she is satisfied with our routine.

Thanks for visiting us today and we hope you are doing well.
The pictures here are just beautiful and they kind of make us feel like we are at the sea side as well!

Headbutts, Caesar

Be careful you don't over extend yourself with that Paw Stretching?

Did they sell sea shells by the sea shore? That sounds like fun! Was it the Hamptons?

Glad that you guys didn't absorb any negative energy from the feeders' job activities!!
