Waiting for Breakfast

Cyndi, Micah and Rusty waiting for breakfast. What are they all staring at?  Why, Percy, of course. 

In case you haven't figured it out yet, Jan gets excited over the strangest things.  For example, this morning she got all excited because Micah showed up for breakfast.  Now the rest of us showed up too, but did Jan care?  Nooooooo!  She says we show up every chance we get, whether it's time to eat or not.  So what was so special about Micah?

Micah spent 4 1/2 months living in abject fear of Percy.  He hid everywhere - under the bed, under the desk, under the keyboard, etc.  He has only been wandering the house on his own for less than a month and every morning Jan had to take his food to wherever he was, even if he was curled up in a dishpan bed under the microwave or on a chair under the table. 

But today when the dishes started rattling, she found him sitting on the stool between the washer and dryer.  From there he climbed onto the dryer - even though Rusty was already sitting there - and turned his back to Rusty.  Wow!

And if that wasn't enough to get Jan's knees creaking with the urge to dance, Percy was sitting next to the fridge right across from Micah.  There is still an occasional squabble, but Micah and Percy seem to be adjusting to sharing the same space at last.  When it's cold, Micah lives in the kitchen (by choice).  If we have a warm day, he comes out and sleeps on the cat tower near the computer.

We are thrilled that all the Royals are safely home now.  Emily arrived in UT on Saturday.  Kevin of the Animal Shelter Volunteer blog drove the last transport leg last night and handed Marigold and Brutus to Laura who has started the Heaven Sent To Me blog for them.  It's also the new home of Iris and Maxie, as Lilly Lu's blog has closed since she left for the bridge.

They could still use some prayers, as Laura's landlady has become - shall we say, not so nice? - since Friday.

Don't miss Part I of the Royals' rescue story on Savannah's blog.  She will do the rest of the story over the next 3 Mondays.

  10. Thanks for pointing us to Savvy blog. We wondered about all of the details knowing they had to massive. WOW even more than we could have imagined. WE are so glad that the Royals were all safely put into the arms of new families. WE always thought it was meant to be because of what Rose did for Beau and Cathy, now many people did that for Rose and her Royals. Just imagine. Isn't it amazing?

    Now I PRAY that the landlady doesn't do like Ash and Travelers mommy's landlord and force them to give up their cats. That broke my heart in two.
