What is it about cats and computers? My boys are permanently trying to climb on our laptops or sit staring at the screen. Many a time we have woken up to the incessant beeping of my man’s laptop (he keeps it on his nightstand on the side of the bed) as one of our cats is sitting on the keyboard. On one particular occasion the whole screen had rotated thanks to Stormer’s (our kitten) rump on the keyboard.

But it’s not just the laptops, it’s their bags and sleeves too. If they are lying anywhere around the house one of the cats will be lying it sleeping in it. Just this morning I watched Stormer lie on my laptop sleeve. When he moved off it Mac came and lay on it. When he then moved off it Stormer came back to lay on it again. My furry boys are so techno savvy! Kids these days!!!

My babies, Lucia and Evian, you will always be in my heart and a part if me will always be with you. I can only think how lucky I was to have been able to share such precious bittersweet time with you. May you rest in piece mommy’s darlings

When it’s been 3 weeks since my new fur babies came to live with me. It’s been great!!! The initial settling in went smoothly and they now all have the freedom of the house running around wherever they please. Harley the older boy is still a little nervous of the two younger brothers but it’s all going so well. I just love them to bits!! Lots of fun still ahead. I still miss my little girl terribly but it’s been great to have the newbies to run around after to keep my attention diverted from my babies passing on.
