What are we supposed to do now?

Hunter come quickly, we have an emergency!
What's wrong, buddy? Did you hurt yourself?
No, but take a look at what I just read. It's Sue's latest travel blog and she says in there that it is only five days until Christmas!
Oh no! What are we supposed to do now? Are you sure? The weather sure doesn't feel like winter. There is no snow, it's not cold and André and Sue are running around in shorts and t-shirts. No wonder we didn't realize that Christmas is just a few days away. On the other hand this explains the funny little tree on the table. How could we have not picked up on that?!
Do you think Sue could be wrong about that? I mean sometimes she doesn't exactly strike me as the brightest bulb on the Christmas tree. She has been wrong in the past and done some pretty dumb things in her days. Maybe Christmas in the US is not at the same time as in Canada. Kind of like their Thanksgiving is later. Maybe there is still time for the snow and cold to come?
Never mind that, Trapper, I'm more worried about the presents. I didn't even start thinking about them!
Presents? You are not going to give them gifts, are you, Hunter? We have never done that before.
No, silly, not giving - getting! I haven't sent my wishlist to Santa yet and now it might be too late. And even if it wouldn't be too late, how would Santa find us down here? I sure hope you are right about their Christmas being later than in Canada so we can make up our wishlists and send Santa a Change-of-address card.
I have an idea: why don't we use e-mail for that? It's supposed to be real quick. Let's go get Sue and type up our mail to Santa right now!

See you around

Hard work for us

Hi everyone

We had a blast traveling around with Alice, André's mom, and to show her what life with cats is all about. Though we are not sure if she is going to adopt one herself, we sure hope she is considering it after her experience with us. I mean, who could resist. After the pleasure of spending time with us anybody just has to turn into a complete cat lover!

True, but Alice says she travels a lot and she does not have a fifth wheel like we do, so having a cat may be impossible for her. She surely would want to take him or her (or maybe she would get more than one in which case it would be "them") along but can you imagine a cat traveling on a bus or a big ship? And not traveling anymore because she wouldn't want to part with her cat seems not to be what she has in mind. At least not at the moment. So I guess we just have to wait and see how she is going to resolve this grave conflict of interest.

André and Sue also enjoyed the time with Alice. They took her to places they had been before and at times they were astonished, how things had changed since they have been there last time. Let's face it: they are getting old! Some of the places we're talking about, they have visited 20 years ago. We don't think many cats even get to live for 20 years and these guys are talking about past trips. Do you think we should be concerned about whom we will be living with in the future, Hunter? André and Sue are as old as Methuselah and who knows how much longer they will make it?

I wouldn't be too concerned, Trapper, they still look pretty fresh to me. But maybe we keep an eye on them, just in case. Meantime we will have to get Sue to get back to work. Boy this is getting harder and harder all the time. Since we have been traveling she seems to think she is retired or something. She is all play and fun but no writing blogs or updating the web site. This has to change - we have followers who expect to read about our adventures and we cannot let them down. Besides, I have heard that in humans being mentally active will keep them younger. So getting Sue back to work may just help with that age concern we have.

Good thinking, Hunter. We could also keep her busy by nagging her for more walks outside, more treats and more attention in general. At least we don't have to worry about André. Sue is keeping him on his toes plenty.

So you see, we have our work cut out for us. Keep your fingers crossed for us and maybe send some requests for our blog. This would help in keeping Sue writing it.

See you around
