We let her stay in the heated attached garage her first few nights, so she could start to adjust to the new noises and smells without being disturbed. Now we have her in her own bedroom, no Radar allowed. She is kind of a recluse cat, so we haven't moved the gate up in the doorway yet, but plan to in the coming days, if she feels like venturing out. I'm gonna look into buying some cat trees/making some hideouts for her. The room she is in has a few plastic totes in it (we don't have a lot of storage), so she is able to hide pretty well when she wants to, which is most of the time. She seems to be eating pretty well and drinking water too.

I've been letting radar sniff her crate/towels, and going back through some basic OB stuff with him. He is very curious, but doesn't dwell on it like he would have a year ago. I tell him leave it and he moves on to baby diaper smelling duty.

So far she has her food and litter box in her room, and has been using it despite the stress I'm sure she is feeling. Hopefully that continues.

Nolan is oblivious to the new addition.

You might check places like TJ Maxx, Home Goods, etc for cat trees - they often have pretty decent tall cats trees for much cheaper than the pet stores.

Sounds like you're off to a great start!

Ooooh good idea! Any excuse for me to go to those stores works for me! I LOVE home goods and Marshall's. SO does not like how much time/money I spend there

A word about shaving cats...Their skin is VERY thin and delicate and some groomers have knack of keeping a cat quiet during the process, others don't. Try to find someone who is experienced and good at keeping the cat's stress levels down. Your cat's age plus a recent move makes it not ideal, but if she needs it....well, it is what it is. Shaving a cat takes patient and careful, yet firm, handling.

Your newest puppy has such a cute grin, and those teeth poking out really maximize his charm. Is he sitting up on his own already? I've lost track of his age, but it sure looks like it in your picture.

WHAT is Radar watching on the telly?

Edited to add: Nolan was born in mid-September???? Where the heck does time go? Shoot, he should be walking soon. Life with baby is definitely in for another change.

33 degrees here and it just started snowing. I don't think it'll do much more than just stick a tiny bit on the deck and grass, though; it's too warm.

I can handle a little bit of snow, and any moisture is welcome here. But tornados would freak me out.

I love thunderstorms, but worrying that something more dangerous might be hiding in those clouds would definitely keep my blood pressure way too high.

And the new fuchsia's mostly all have flower buds now. And the mystery flower I ended up with in two raised beds are putting up blooms--still have no idea what they are but must have been something that likes to get planted in the fall so that they are half grown by spring (surviving frost and very cold spells and torrential winter rains)--if I ever figure it out I'll let you know--ya'll know that pictures are highly unlikely.

Overcast this morning in Portland (left side) supposed to not really have any rain until late in the day and temperatures are supposed to rise back up to normal (high 60's and low 70's through the week).

And this is the formal notification that today is 1)Toad's 1/2 birthday--he's 13.5 today and 2) I'm going this morning for that epidural injection (of a steroid of some sort) and I don't guarantee you'll hear from me for a day or two--I have no idea what I'm supposed to feel like after this--and yes someone IS driving me to and from the place they are doing this.

UGH! I hate being the sickee I've been lately--I really hate not being able to bend over and pull spring weeds everywhere. And I also hate the fact that Clark (cat) thinks he can run out the back door and down the side of the house and eat a pile of grass before I catch up with him (but he's right--he can zip past me and out and I can't catch up until he's around the side of the house--so he eats as much grass and he can and then when caught and returned to the house washes his feet and pukes up the grass--talk about Dober goats. I NEED to scrub the kitchen floor!!! Life is NOT fair.

Over and out...

ABTLLHH
HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, TOAD!! Be patient with Mama, though, I imagine your presents will come a little late. She's dealing with a lot today.

Best of luck with the medical procedure, AB. You know we'll be thinking of you and also talking about you behind your back, so keep us updated when you can.

I hear you about Clark. Trip has taken to running out the door in a zip and I can't catch him until he's off the patio into the grass. Fortunately he still flops onto his side when he sees big bad mom coming, but I'm not sure how long that will last. He is a determined sort. But at least he's not eating the grass.

Up in the mountains it snows in May, for sure.

From Channel 4, in Denver:
The new snow will likely create additional delays in opening roadways such as Trail Ridge Road through Rocky Mountain National Park. Road crews try to open as many passes as possible in Colorado’s high country ahead of the busy Memorial Day Weekend, but are facing extra challenges this year due to a deep snowpack and the current forecast.


Snowplow operator above Milner Pass on May 9, 2019. probably about 11,000 feet.

That white stuff on the side is snow, for those of you who've never seen it before (Florida folks are so unsophisticated)

Here in Colorado Springs, though, (6,700 feet at our house) snow is not so common in May, but it does happen.
https://www.currentresults.com/Weath...n-averages.php

I would disagree with what the article says about snow amounts in the winter, however. I think that's down lower at the airport (6,100 feet elevation) where temps are usually about 5 degrees higher. Those few little degrees can make a real difference whether the snow piles up or melts.

Monument, Colorado, just a few miles north of us and a bit higher than we are, gets an average of 96 inches of snow a year, compared to the Springs at 38 inches. We're sorta in the middle.

I have zero blood pressure when it is cold!

I will die in the storm shelter!

Better hope I don't have to go down there!

Thanks, Ma!

The atmospheric pressure around here is making me nervous.

Mister came home with a stainless steel bar top, which I had to help unload.

I was like, "Can we get this $hit done"?

I am starting to get as nervous as an alien in a room full of rocking chairs!

Yup, looks like this is a mixed group, with a couple of bucks + does. In the next few weeks or so, the bucks tend to go off somewhere--at least we don't see them as much--and the does get ready to have their babies. By mid-June, fawning season is in full swing.

Snowplow operator above Milner Pass on May 9, 2019. probably about 11,000 feet.

That white stuff on the side is snow, for those of you who've never seen it before (Florida folks are so unsophisticated)

Here in Colorado Springs, though, (6,700 feet at our house) snow is not so common in May, but it does happen.

I would disagree with what the article says about snow amounts in the winter, however. I think that's down lower at the airport (6,100 feet elevation) where temps are usually about 5 degrees higher. Those few little degrees can make a real difference whether the snow piles up or melts.

Monument, Colorado, just a few miles north of us and a bit higher than we are, gets an average of 96 inches of snow a year, compared to the Springs at 38 inches. We're sorta in the middle.
So how is one sure that all that snow will not come tumbling down on that road and bury them in snow ?

DT ate my post.

I'll try again.

In this area of the road (running across the mountains in Rocky Mountain National Park) you are driving across open mountain meadows or up above timberline on the rolling tundra. The snow pack is deep and becomes almost as hard as concrete from the weight of the snow above it, they say. There aren't really slopes above the road which would add to the danger of avalanches.

Avalanches tend to occur on slopes where the snow is unstable because of its steepness, where there are strong winds which pile the snow up at the top of these slopes, or where there has been a fresh heavy snowfall on top of older layers of snow.

If you drive through the mountains, you can see areas where avalanches occur frequently (avalanche chutes).


Every year about 6 people are killed in Colorado avalanches, generally because they are skiing in back country areas and ignore the warning signs of avalanche danger. Places prone to avalanches closer to "civilization" are managed by triggering smaller controlled avalanches before the snow can build to dangerous levels, and by placing tree breaks, fencing, etc. to keep the snow from drifting into unstable masses.
