Getting Close to Moving Day!

Hello friends!
I'll be losing my internet connection tonight
and won't get settled into the new apartment until Sunday.
This means that I won't be able to update this blog for the next few days.

Meanwhile, my lovely house has become a war zone of dust and boxes.
But Slash and Bronzy do try to help out by lending a paw here and there.

Just look at Bronzy here.

While I was busy packing away all the beddings,
she busied herself with making sure that none of the plastic packs were torn or damage.

And please don't worry.
The bag wasn't sealed.

In fact, the zipper was wide open since I was about to stuff more blankets into the pack.
You can see one side of the open zipper in some of the pictures.

Alrighty, I had better get back to the packing.
I still have about another 10 or so boxes to fill up.
And as you can see, the kitties are already being very 'helpful'.

Big Move Coming Up

Mommy: Slashy, we're moving house soon. Can you help out with some of the packing please?

Slash: Let me think about it.

Slash: Hmmm... Okay, I have my answer.

Slash: No!

While searching for a pet-friendly house to move into,
I got to know a lovely young lady with a dog and cat of her own.
We exchanged photos of our furry babies and ooh-ed and aah-ed over them.
With permission from her, here is a very sweet photo of her two darlings.

Caesar the Dog and Izzy the Cat

As much as I do like her and her two cuties,
I decided not to move into her place after she cautioned that
"... the dog could be a problem.
He's amazing with them when he considers them 'his' cats,
but can be a bit over the top at first and,
if the cats aren't used to dogs, it could be very stressful for them to begin with.
Wouldn't be so much of an issue if he wasn't a 38kg bullmastiff x greyhound
that likes to chase unfamiliar furry things!"

I do hope that Slash and Bronzy will eventually learn to get along with dogs.
But it would be a good idea to take baby steps and start them off with a small pup perhaps.

Meanwhile, I've found us a lovely apartment to move in to.
We'll be sharing it with a young couple who are absolutely beside themselves
at the thought of having Slash and Bronzy in the house.
This is a relief for me for I know that the kitties won't just be tolerated,
but that they would be genuinely welcomed in the house.

Slash & Bronzy's Nemesis: The Vacuum Cleaner

Slash: Bronzy, are you sure that this is a good hiding place?

Bronzy: Trust me, it is. Just lean in closer to me.

Slash: But I feel rather exposed.

Slash: OMG. I can hear it coming closer. It's HERE!!!

Slash & Bronzy: HEEEELLP!!!

Slash: Is it gone? I don't think my heart can take this anymore.
Bronzy: I think it is. But keep leaning in until I'm sure, ok?
Mommy had better give us lots of treatsies after this.

Being Difficult is Fun For Us!

When Mommy wants to take a silly photo of us, we may not be able to stop her.
But we can make her slog for it.
Here's how we do it...

Hey, guys... Let's take a group photo with Tiger, shall we?
Are you ready? On the count of three!
One, Two, Thr...

 Hey! Stop yawning, Slash.
Let's try again.
One, Two, Thr...

Hey! What's going on? Is all this yawning planned?
Let's try it one more time.
One, Two, Three!

A good shot finally.
Thanks, guys!
