Emil, Award and Adoptions

Emil of the Cat Realm is missing. In the area where he lives, when a cat doesn't return home overnight, it is often very bad news. But we don't want Karl, Mrs. Oz or their maid and butler to give up hope.

Sassy made this poster. Feel free to display this one which includes the link to the Cat Realm or stop by Sassy's or Cat Blogosphere to pick up a copy.

House of the mostly black cats (Hot MBC) has a very good post on Emil's disappearance. We all do what we believe to be best for our furbabies.

We received the Daily Blogger award from the Hudson Furkids. As you undoubtedly are aware, we can't always blog every day, but we do our best. And if we remember correctly, it is for those who blog at least 3 times a week. We're not going to start counting back. We're just going to say thank you to Rocky and his family.

We thought it would be fair to pass it on to one kitty and one woofie. We voted to pass this on to Daisy, the Curly Cat. And we picked the Zoo Crew 5 for the woofie award. If either one has already received it, that's okay.

Yesterday was a good day. The local Humane Society and the animal shelter hosted a special adoption day. It turned out better than they dared hope. 11 dogs and 1 cat found a new home.

But Jan is sunburned, exhausted and grumpy today. She wants the computer back so she can work on the photos she took yesterday. We'll probably be back in a couple of days since tomorrow is Jan's regular day to take pictures at the shelter.

What's that? Why don't we just use the computer when Jan isn't home? Well.....

We've been banned from using the computer when she's not home. There was an incident. We don't really want to talk about it.

Okay, if you insist.

We are not allowed to touch the computer without supervision, ever since we accidentally blew out the speakers listening to cat-erwalling muzak with the volume turned all the way up. Buddy woof-erwalled right along with it. If he had just shut up we could have played innocent. But no, the neighbors complained about Buddy's bass baying (we know it couldn't have been the cats' vocal range), Merci's soprano and Samaritan's hearty and loud tenor. Plus the weird background music. So Jan knew. She just knew we were responsible. And we're banned.


  1. Wonderful news about the adoptions. It's so sad that some cats and dogs don't have loving families. Jan, we applaud your efforts to find homes for as many cats and dogs as you can.

    We are purring & praying for Emil. ~Alasandra & (The Cats) Socks, Scylla & Charybdis

  7. Great adoption day, I know the little furries will find nice new homes to live in. Good Job!
    Congrats on your award, so deserving. You all are so great at your place, always helping out.
    I saw your poster on Emil and he still hasn't returned home. We can only pray that he is OK and will soon come home. Karl's family is upset and having a hard time not to think the worst. Keep them all in your thoughts and prayers.
