Oh Baby!

Sorry - I did not state correctly yesterday - Norma and Anonymous.  I DO have a tax exempt cert. with Walmart, need to get one for Wegmans - both the only place I go to buy cat food at the moment.  I mean't to say the cost was without taxes!  😾  Oh look!  My blog has added emojis!

So at my garden location, the person living on the lot next to mine has been parking in front of my garden!  Garden - Spanish speaking - its for all to view, all year round!  He drives his big truck onto the driveway and goes sideways to park in front of the garden.  At first it was like, well, its 4 in the morning…  let it go.  But now that I think about it, maybe he is parking there on weekends, during the daytime hours, whatever.  I would like to say something but I don’t want to upset them.  I need to find another interpreter to write a short and sweet note.  It would say something like:

“Hello Neighbor!  Would you mind not parking here on this lot because when I planted this garden two years ago, it was meant for all to see, and your truck is blocking the view.   Even through winter, we maintain this lot.   Thank you so very much!” 

What do you all think?  Change the wording a bit?  Help!

Finally, the fifth kitten rescued from Bay Street last week – I’ve been calling her Baby but she needs a better name.  She was spayed last week, and ear-tipped unfortunately.  She was being fostered by a friend Diane, but I decided I wanted her with me for a short while, so Diane delivered her to my house where a cage was set up and waiting.  When I got home from work, I got up the courage yesterday to pick her up.  I am always frightened of being bitten you see.  She is the SWEETEST little thing, frightened for sure, but no aggression, and she allowed me to kiss her nose and her belly!  So sweet!!!  I must change her name to something really cute!  Cause she is really cute!  Her siblings, Sydney and Joanie, are being adopted today!  And Riley and Squirt are being adopted this week as well!  Yay!  Great news!

Have a great day!

"I used to walk into a room full
of people and wonder
if they liked me...  

now I look around
and wonder if I like them."


  1. Well, if you don't call her Normie, how about Pixie.

  2. Baby is so precious!! Those big eyes and her markings remind me of my baby Gxir. :(

    I think your note sounds perfect. Very friendly and to the point. When does the no street parking begin so the snowplow can get through?

  3. I would not worry about the truck. I am assuming it is providing privacy for the cats from prying eyes on the street. As somebody that lives in such a neighborhood, I learned a long time ago that a cat's or dog's worst enemy is visibility. What the people don't see, they don't complain about.

    I am so glad you chose to work with Baby. What a cutie.

  4. I agree with Falkosmom.. ignore.. never know who might take anger out on kitties...
